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.

Toshiba satellite may be stuck in Standby or hibernation mode. i TRIED HOLDING THE POWER BUTTON FOR 10 SECONDS AND RESTART, THAT DID NOT WORK. CANNOT GO INTO SAFE MODE. hELP


It sounds more like there was a charging issue and not enough juice left in the battery to start it up. Try removing the battery and then putting it in again. And then try starting it up. The adapter may be shot. Some laptops won't work if the battery is out or is shot even though the adapter is plugged in. Batteries generally need to be replaced every few years.

Also watch the lights on the front to see if they're coming on when you press the power button.

How to replace CD?DVD IN A135-S4467


It's very easy. First turn the laptop off with the DVD bay open. You will have to unscrew the memory ram cover, and pull it.
Afterwards you take a look at the screw that's on the left of the ram's compartiment. See this picture:
http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/toshiba-satellite-a135/take-apart-laptop/toshiba-satellite-A135-02.jpg
If you look close to the ram compartment you will see a screw on the left side. Unscrew it and that's it. You will only have to pull the dvd rom firmly outside the laptop-you can pull it from the bay, that why I've told you to let it open.

My Toshiba A135-4527 makes a clicking noise when I turn it on and keeps restarting a at the Intel Corporation screen. There is also a red line down the left hand side of the laptop screen.


Sounds like you have two problems, first! the hard drive is probably gone bad, second! the LCD screen is suspect, try hooking up a computer monitor on the the video output located on the back of your Laptop, if it produces a clean signal you know there is a Laptop screen issue.

My toshiba satellite a135-s2276 won't turn on


A coworker used to work for Toshiba and said that this is common for the Satellite A135 models and under warranty the fix was a motherboard swap for a newer/updated motherboard. Otherwise the unit is unusable.
