Question about Toshiba Satellite (K000004080) Motherboard

4 Answers

Toshiba Satellite A135 is DEAD!

My daughter's laptop won't turn on. The power button glows red, along the front of the laptop on the left side the power cord light is blue and the power light is red. The screen is black and there is no response when I push the power button. This computer is only 14 months old and this is the second time this has happened. The first time it was fixed under warranty which has now expired. I read that the fan could be dirty or the motherboard could need replacing. I'm no computer tech but would be willing to try to fix it myself since, with no warranty, what do I have to lose? Any suggestions you have would be greatly appreciated.

    Same problem. At six months, Satellite went back back under warranty and Toshiba fixed it saying the bias needed to be reset. Now at 20 months, it won't power up again. i was told by a geek at Best Buy that the easiest solution might be to replace the motherboard however these are not cheap.

Open the back panels, blow out EVERYTHING and remove and re-insert everything. You could just have dirty contacts somewhere. The dust from the fans also travels around inside the computer.

Acer laptop switched on light up on switch but no screen display


A blacked-out screen doesn't necessarily indicate a broken monitor. If the computer has run out of charge or is in hibernation or sleep mode,

if the screen is too dark, or if the display cable has come disconnected from the motherboard, the screen may appear black or fail to turn on.

To fix a blacked-out laptop screen, troubleshoot the screen settings, check the LCD connector and see if the computer is awake and receiving power.

Touch the touchpad or move the external mouse to see if the computer is asleep or hibernating. If the computer fails to respond, press "Enter" on the keyboard.

Press the power button if the screen remains black. Confirm that the power indicator light, found at the front of the computer or above the keyboard, is glowing solid green or blue.

Confirm that the power adapter is plugged into the computer and into a wall outlet. Confirm that battery indicator light is glowing solid green or blue.

Hold down the "Fn" key. Press the up-arrow to see if the screen brightness increases. Some computers also use the "F6" or "F7" keys to increase screen brightness.

Hold down the power button for 10 seconds to turn off the laptop. Remove the AC adapter from the computer, close the screen, and then turn the PC over.

Slide the battery latch to eject the battery. Pull the battery out of its compartment.

Turn the computer back over, open the lid, and insert the edge of a flathead screwdriver or other flat, solid object beneath the bezel above the keyboard.

Wedge the edge of the keyboard bezel off of the top cover. Work your way along the edge of the keyboard bezel to loosen it. Pull the bezel off the laptop.

Trace the cable coming from the laptop screen to the connector found beneath the bezel. Reconnect the display cable to the motherboard if the cable has come loose from the connector.
Line up the tabs on the bezel with the slots along the top of the keyboard. Insert the right edge of the bezel into the gap above the keyboard, and then push the bezel back in place.

Turn the computer back on. If the laptop screen is still blacked out, connect an external monitor to the video port on the side of the PC to confirm that the video card isn't defective. If the external monitor works, the LCD screen could be broken.
If the monitor doesn't work, the motherboard or video card might need to be replaced.

hope this helps

My toshiba satellite l35 wont turn on,,,the light blinks then shuts off ,,,thats all it does


You may have a DC connector problem:

Symptoms of a broken power jack
1. If you wiggle the power cord or the AC Adapter connector on the back of the laptop, the power LED and battery charge LED start to flicker.
2. Battery will not charge in the laptop.
3. Laptop runs fine off a charged battery.
4. With the AC Adapter connected the laptop appears to be dead.
No power LED or battery charge LED activity.
5. Laptop randomly powers off without any warning.

If your laptop is out of warranty, then you can fix the problem by re-soldering DC-IN jack on the system board. If it

Where can I find a schematic or instructions to open my toshiba satellite u205-s5067 laptop. I want to clean/replace my fan.


Taking apart a laptop to change the fan is a relatively simple task. Just keep track of where all the screws go and follow these steps:

1. Shutdown the laptop and remove the AC adapter. Disconnect any devices, such as a printer or external DVD-ROM or drive, that are attached to the laptop

2. Remove the laptop battery. Turn the laptop upside down, slide the battery release latch and then pull the battery out of the bay.

3. Unscrew the hard drive cover. Grab the hard drive tab and shift the hard drive to the left to unplug it. Lift the hard drive out of the bay.

4. Unscrew and remove the PCI memory cover, the optical drive cover, and switch cover.

5. Unscrew the two screws that hold the keyboard to the base, these are located in the middle of the rear panel. Flip the laptop over so it is right side up, open and remove the keyboard by using the keyboard release switches located above the keyboard. Next, unplug the Toshiba Satellite U205-S5067 Fan cable.

6. Close the laptop and turn it over so it is bottom up. Unscrew the display assembly screws located under the laptop screen hinges. Turn the laptop over so it is right side up. Open the laptop and unplug the display assembly cable and disconnect the wireless antenna from the display assembly. Unscrew the display assembly from the laptop base and remove.

7. Unplug the mouse pad cable. Turn the laptop over so the bottom side is up and unscrew the base screws which are located along all four sides of the laptop base. Gently remove the base of the laptop.

8. Turn the laptop over so it is right side up. Unplug the fan cable from the circuit board. Unscrew the screws holding the Toshiba Satellite U205-S5067 CPU fan assembly to the laptop. Lift the fan assembly out of the laptop.

9. Insert the new Toshiba Satellite U205-S5067 CPU fan assembly into the lap top. Screw the assembly unit to the lap top and plug the Toshiba Satellite U205-S5067 CPU cooling fan cable into the circuit board.

10. Reassemble the laptop by repeating the previous steps in reverse order.


Hope this helps.

How do i change HDD in Satellite A135


You will need a 2.5" SATA HDD to change with. (the operation must be done with the laptop shut down)
Unscrew the container with the HDD sign and remove it. Being SATA you just have to plug
it in the connectors and it should work. (of course you'll have to format it and reinstall your OS).

I have a Toshiba Satellite A215-S6816 series laptop. I fell asleep watching a DVD one night - when I woke up the next morning everything was dead. I took it to a store where they said that all power...


Please confirm if the laptop was running with or without the battery adapter when you were playing the DVD.

Take the battery out from the laptop and start with the battery adapter connected and see if you see any activity.

Laptops don't die like that.

Hi,
According to me, you should check your power adapter. I think it is not working and is not producing sufficient power supply for your laptop. And due to this, your laptop have not been charging.

Toshibba laptop a135-s2276 ,my mother bords smd chip does not work so display of screen does not appear


The problem is well known witht this model Toshiba - the problem is the fan stops working and then hence shuts down to prevent overheating - it does not take long once the laptop is hot. Without replacing the fan just reboot the laptop until you hear the fan start again on reboot.
