kiranghag,

The battery is probably dead.  When you take the battery out...can you plug the laptop in the wall and turn it on and have it work fine without the battery?

this happens when the DC adaptor is put in and on.

if i take out the battery, it would not gove any light except dc in.

how do i charge the battery. i guessed if i put the battery in the laptop and just plug in the dc power, it would charge the thing. is it right?

the baatery seems to have a switch below it, what is it for?

Does the laptop work without the battery?

The battery should charge if laptop is plugged in and the battery is installed.  Unless the charging mechanism in the laptop is bad and/or the battery is dead (can not accept a charge anymore)
If the laptop powers up without the battery but plugged into DC... then the laptop is fine.  
If not then the laptop may be bad somewhere else.

hmmm.....laptop is probably dead.......I dunno how you could fix it without replacing parts in the laptop.  The DClight flashing could be an error code.  I tried to search Toshiba's website, looks like they dont even have any support for it at all...the oldest model they have support for is the T1900.
