Hello all,

 

 

I have a Toshiba Satellite C55T-B5230 and it operates on Windows 10. When I plug in the charger, my computer screen flickers. It stops when I unplug it. I have tested different outlets in my home, thinking that maybe it might be the cause, current wasn't strong enough or something. I have tried re-booting. Is there any way I can fix this?

 

It isn't hindering me from using the computer, it's just annoying that it keeps flickering. I am having no problems with it charging or sustaining a charge, it's just the screen flickers every couple of seconds. No matter what I'm doing on it.

 

Any advice on how to fix it?

This sounds like a bad adapter, the external power brick is failing.

I would say yes, it is not filtering out the ac cycles.  I would quit using it.
