Question about Toshiba Satellite A40-S270 Notebook

1 Answer

Keyboard beep I have a Toshiba Satellite A40-S270 and I have a problem with it. When I'm working with the notebook it suddenly starts to beep and many windows (in Windows Xp Pro) come to the screen. It's like when you press many keys at the same time, but I'm not pressing any key. I already disconnect the keyboard and connect it again, but the problem persist.

Isolate the issue first. If your using an external keyboard, remove it and test if you still experience it. If not, then there could be a stuck key on your external keyboard.
If yes, then there could be a stuck key on the laptops keyboard.

If there is a stuck key, try to check the buttons on the KB then contact Toshiba to avail of your warranty for the repair.

Hope this helps.

Try removing the battery out of the motherboard. This will be a small watch battery, not the main laptop battery. If this doesnt work, try grabbing the motherboard manual, there could also be a jumper you need to connect to reset.

Pictorial disassembly guide, that takes you to the step of removing the motherboard, (System Board)

Posted for the pictorial guide, that I believe may help when using the Service Manual,

The Toshiba Satellite A40-S270 Notebook PC, is one of the Toshiba Satellite A40 series of Notebook PC's.

Go down to the heading that starts with - Satellite A10. Go across, and click on the blue - A40

This is a PDF file. The computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files.

(I would recommend upgrading to Adobe Reader X, though, if the computer you are using now does Not have this version. { Adobe Reader X is Adobe Reader 10)

After you click on the file name, (A40), it may take up to 30 seconds before the first page comes up.

1) Your body carries Static electricity. Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit) the delicate hardware components inside a computer.
For this reason you should buy, and wear an ESD wrist strap, if you do not own one.
{Electro Static Discharge}

Connect it's alligator clip to a good ground source.
(I connect to an unpainted surface, of the metal frame of an open, empty desktop computer case. An Anti-Static Mat is not needed, and I don't want my wrist connected to the utility company's grounding )

2) Use a multi-compartment container for the various screws you will remove. Label each compartment for the area the screw/s come out of.

If no multi-compartment container is available, substitute with a clean egg carton. Label each egg holder.

SOME screws look VERY similar to other screws.
DO NOT mix them up.

3) Take notes, and make drawings as you disassemble. You can also use a digital camera, or video camera, with good lighting.
A personal record to refer back to in case you are interrupted, will prove invaluable later.

Have problems, and/or have further questions, please post in a Comment.

Toshiba satellite a40-s270 won't turn on


Either the power supply is not working or the battery has failed and will not hold a charge. If the laptop is 3 or more years old, the battery is the likely suspect.

Upgrade memory for legacy Toshiba Satellite A40-S270


If those are the correct specs for your computer, you can indeed install two 1 Gb sticks in it. The overheating may be caused by a ventilation issue on the laptop. There is an access door on the bottom of the laptop that is held in place with a Phillips head screw, you can remove the panel and see if there are two sticks installed. .
