    well a few days ago my charger was acting funny, so i adjusted it so it was at an angle so it would charge, and today, it wont even charge, i dont know if its my charger, or my computer, but i have 50% battery remaining, so i probably wont be on here in a while unless somebody could help me fix this

    Sounds like it's just your charger, you can buy another one for cheap.

    Solder joint on the charger cable end (part that you shove into your computer) has either broke, or the tip has been twisted so much that one of the wires busted and is no longer making a connection, or the charger input in your computer has been moved around too much and either broke the middle pin or busted a solder joint inside the computer.

    Easy way to find this out is to splice your charger cable, and when I say splice, I mean get a X-ACTO knife and cut all the thick plastic away from the charger end so you can see the wires soldered to it (or use to be soldered to it). Be careful when you do this, make sure the cable is unplugged while gutting it or sparks will fly.

    Plug the charger up to your laptop (still unplugged from the wall), then plug it up to the wall and make sure the red and black wires are not touching (or white and black depending on who made the charger). Get a glove, black tape, or whatever and use it to grab the wires to move them around or reconnect them to see if it starts to charge, this doesn't always work though. (I've had to replace the whole cable from the box to the tip because of fucking dogs chewing it up.)

    More than likely, it's just the charger and not your laptop. You can get chargers cheap for about 15$ online. (Though I on the other hand like to homebrew my shit and solder everything I own back together instead of buying something I already own that's broken.)

    Pro tip: If you don't have a soldering iron, use a screwdriver over a lighter.

    Laptop chargers are notoriously easy to break, you can go the easy route and buy a new one or attempt what fear said. At the least, it won't hurt to try what fear suggested if it's not working.

    Reguardless, but toshiba has this issue the most.
