Basically, i have a toshiba laptop and the connection between the charger and the actual laptop is ruined, i've had this problem before and found it better to just get a whole new laptop, is there not an external battery charger i could purchase that would do the job or at least a way to get my photos off of it?
I don't clearly get what's borken. But if you want to get stuff (photos and other files) from your laptop you should check what kind of hard disk do you have (ATA or SATA) and buy external hard drive case. In Poland it costs about 25PLN (less then 8$). Pull out your old hard drive and put it into case connect to the USB and you have external hard drive. I used that thing to get my all work files from my old notebook when it crashes.
