Extending battery life

To maximize the life of your battery packs:
At least once a month, disconnect the computer from a power source and
operate it on battery power until the battery pack fully discharges. Before
doing so, follow the steps as detailed below.
1. Turn off the computer's power.
2. Disconnect the AC adaptor and turn on the computer's power - if it
does not turn on then go to Step 4.
3. Operate the computer on battery power for five minutes. If you find
that the battery pack has at least five minutes of operating time,
continue operating until the battery pack is fully discharged, however, if
the DC IN/Battery indicator flashes or there is some other warning to
indicate a low battery condition, go to Step 4.
4. Connect the AC adaptor to the DC IN 19V jack of the computer, and
to a wall outlet that is supplying power. The DC IN/Battery indicator
should glow amber to indicate that the battery pack is being charged,
however, in the event that DC IN/Battery indicator does not glow this
indicates that power is not being supplied - check the connections for
the AC adaptor and the power cord.
5. Charge the battery pack until the DC IN/Battery indicator glows

Replacing the battery pack

Please be aware that the battery pack is classified as a consumable item.
The operating life of the battery pack will gradually reduce through
repeated charging and discharging, and will need to be replaced when it
reaches the end of its operating life. In addition to this, you might also
replace a discharged battery pack with a charged spare when you are
operating your computer away from an AC power source for an extended
period of time.

    I purchased a c55 laptop and have no passwords so I can't do anything with it can you help me?

    I purchased the laptop for a song due to a crushed LCD screen
    A few months later a salvaged LCD screen became available but the chassis was a little bit larger at the hinge assembly by an 3/16
    After removing the glass from the lid chassis it fit into the rightful housing.
    O​riginally I'd removed the assembly hinges from the body thus opening the clamshell completely as well the LCD screen associated connector and the black and white (assuming) WIFI connection wires which is the main focus of this post

    I cannot find a service manual/vid​eo/informa​tional of the exact location as the ends appear to snap into a given contact hole
    After chasing the wires through their gides I am left with ambiguous options at best
    Any info would be much appreciate​d ~THX

    This Toshiba labtop satelite c50 is a faulty machine. On the manual it says it had an eject button for to open the CD drive unfortunat​ely it does have one.
    PC world sold me this computer some months ago and I recommend not to use this shop due to selling faulty goods.
    Sta​y away from Toshiba laptop because the faulty has not been rectified.
