I have a Toshiba Satellite P25-609. Lately it has been shutting down on it's own when using a/c mode and does not go to battery mode. I'm not sure if it's the connection in the back of the computer, or the a/c adapter, but when I move the cord, particularly the piece that plugs into the computer, the lights that tell me if it's got power and battery charging blink. I have been able to set the cord to a place where I have power, but can barely touch my system and it disconnects again. On another note, it appears my battery is charged, however, I am certain that it's shot and needs to be replaced. Any ideas?

Is it getting too hot? My sons Vaio (sony, no baloney) does the same thing. We put props under it to allow more cooling. Don't block the fan with the props, it helps a little bit.

Lol! I had that same Laptop, and also that same problem. I tried propping it up to let it vent also, but that didn't work. I'd be doing something online and then the computer would shut down if I moved the cord even a little bit. grrrrr, the memories. I eventually got a new adapter for it and it fixed the problem.

It was getting real hot a couple of weeks ago. I did the same thing, put props under it, made sure they weren't covering the fan opening. Thing is, the darn connection. Not sure if it's my a/c cord or the connection in the computer. Soooo frustrating. I couldn't even get the connection to boot up today, so I'm dead in the water at this point.
