I'm having problems with a Toshiba Satellite A305-S. The AC converter that is 19v/3.95A doesn't even bring the charging light on. I have tried a Toshiba 19v/3.42A converter. It brings on the charging light, momentarily tries to bring the hard drive on and runs the fan. The monitor stays black the whole time.
Is it possible that this second converter doesn't have enough juice to bring the monitor on?
I'm trying to decide whether to buy a replacement converter and battery for this computer or that's a waste of money.
I've checked the hard drive by pulling it and attaching it with a USB device to another computer. The hard drive seems fine.
