Hello my dad bought a Toshiba Tecra A11-00N 15.6" Notebook laptop 2 years ago and it's been working for years. He went to Ghana for a funeral and left me in charge. 2 days after he left the laptop said critical battery and i tried plugging in the charger but the light didn't come on so i turned my laptop off before i lost the last percent. After that i tried turning it on but all that came was a little orange light for about half a second then it turns off again. PLZ HELP im not sure if the problem is the laptop or the charger because it was working fine hours ago. I tried letting my laptop sleep it off, then i turned it on i saw the green light come on and the fan was working, for about 10 seconds then it turned off again then it went back to the orange thing PLZ HELP ME I DON'T WANNA GO TO A REPAIR ISN'T THERE SOME WAY OF CHECKING IF IT'S THE LAPTOP OR THE CHARGER?

There are two possibilities;
dead battery
dead charger.

No green lite on the charger means dead charger.

You can try goodwill or other donation center for a replacement charger or order one off the internet.

Good charger but not charging means dead battery which a replacement can also be gotten off the internet.
