Go to power options, change plan settings, advanced power setting, under battery set low values for power levels and restart to see if this fixes it.

not really no.

first when i put the battery in it says ' at ac - can not charge '
after a minute or 2 it went to ' can't find battery'


it' already my third battery -_-, so it can't be the battery i guess and when i put in the original battery i can see the percentage again.

Is it the right battery? Where did you buy it from you might be getting ripped off. I know with some HP laptops there is a battery manager program that comes with the laptop to get started. Does Toshiba have a program?

If you already tried 3 batteries and it does the same thing, then it is the batteries. they don't seem to be 100% compatible with the laptop.

Right those brand batteries aren't compatible. Some OEM batteries have monitoring cicuitry built in which the generic brands don't...hence cheaper. You may try another off-brand or buy the Toshiba replacment.
