Title:

No Power to Computer

Text:

My Toshiba Notebook Computer is not working anymore. I thought it might be the AC adapter so I purchased a new one. With the old one there was no power at all, no lights when it was plugged in.

With the new one I have two lights showing, power and battery, both green. The battery light was yellow when I first plugged it in, but after an hour or so it turned green.

But when I hit the power button nothing happens, the computer does not fire up. Screen is black, and there does not seem to be any activity in the computer.

I suspect one of my kids spilled something on the notebook or the battery is no good.

Any ideas?

Thanks
