I have a Toshiba P100 Laptop, that also has a few other things wrong with it including sporadic green and red pixels that are not screen or graphics card related. *as both have been tested/replaced* Included inase it was relavent
Now this has been going on for a while, finally starting annoying me enough to do something about it.
My laptop's battery works when off charge.
However if I get it down low like 20%, 50% something below around 80-90% *dont have exact numbers for this* the problem occurs.
I will plug the charger in and it will start charging.
After some amount of time later, 3 seconds, 5 minutes, half an hour it will stop charging. Jiggling it may or may not have an effect on this I have been unable to determine whether it plays a role.
When you plug it out and in again it once again starts charging.
While it is not charging it is also not using up the battery so the battery will stay constantly at whatever percent it is at. Also the computer then lags every few seconds like clock work, it is momentary lapse. Where it just doesnt take input or do what it is supposed to be doing making typing things annoying as you often miss letters.
Note this problem doesnt occur when the laptop has alot of charge. Only when it is low.
If it matters my laptop connecter is 4 pronged, which always struck me as odd considering most laptops used circular plug ins.
What sort of problem am I looking at here? Circuitry, faulty battery?
I have searched and browsed these forums and other places and have been unable to find problems quite like this.
Thanks for reading I appreciate it!
