You can get an Universal charger from Maplins.. Usualy around 50 or 60 quid..

Also some toshiba laptops have problems with the powerjack on the motherboard, some can be repaired for free by toshiba...... you might try a different charger or wiggle the connection around and see does the charging light come on.. before you buy a charger...
