Toshiba Satellite 200CDS - takin' it back to the old school!

    Hi guys,

    Just wondering whether you can help me out. I've just got a Toshiba
    Satellite 200CDS laptop, but it has no instruction manual.
    Unfortunately, I can't figure out for the life of me how to charge
    the battery, as it doesn't seem to be a 'plug it in and it just
    automatically charges' kind of laptop.

    Any thoughts?

    Cheers ;)

    Probably the battery is just dead. It should charge automatically.

    You might open the battery door and remove it to make sure it is not
    leaking or otherwise damaged. IIRC, this is a NiCad and they can
    deteriorate over time.

  4. Just plug it in and it automatically charges ... unless the laptop or
    battery is defective (defective battery very possible).
