Toshiba Dummy Card

There is a slot on the right side of my Satellite laptop with a plastic piece that pulls out and says Dummy Card. I assumed it was an extra memory drive, but not so sure now. Can you tell me what it's for and what type card I would need to put in it??

Hi TCamille,

It looks as though you're referring to what's usually known as a pc card, or PCMCIA card. It's used for a variety of secondary peripherals, such as wireless internet or wireless broadband, extra usb ports, extra ethernet ports, and lots of other things. You may never need it, but there are some good uses if you look around.

How do I change a keyboard on a satellite A85-S107 laptop?


1. Take out the battery and AC adapter, unplugged from the wall, enusre the laptop is fully powered off.
2. Remove those screws with a T-8 or Phillips screwdriver.
3. Turn the laptop back over and open it up. Check and see if the Toshiba Satellite A85-S107 keyboard is tucked under any plastic pieces. If so, find them if those plastic pieces are screwed into anything, and unfasten them as well. If not, it probably uses clamps that can easily be removed.
4. Remove the plastic pieces carefully.
5. Unscrew any screws at the top (if necessary) and remove the keyboard itself from top to bottom. You'll notice that the keyboard is connected with a thin, but wide, data cable to the system board at the bottom.
6. Disconnect the data cable attachment of the keyboard which will sever all the remaining attachments of the laptop keyboard with the laptop computer motherboard. To remove this cable, you have to just carefully pull it out from the socket to which it is attached. Then you can lift out the entire keyboard out of the laptop.
7. Take the new Toshiba Satellite A85-S107 keyboard out of the plastic and place it inside with the right orientation, attach the data cable.
8. Refasten the keyboard in place at the top.
9. If you had to remove any plastic pieces, carefully snap them back in and replace any screws you had to remove.
10. Turn the laptop over and replace all of the keyboard screws.
11. Put the laptop battery back in place and switch it on to check Toshiba Satellite A85-S107 keyboard functionality. If everything has gone according to plan, you should be ready to type away!

Can not gt my sd card into the slot do u need a spefic kind


Yes the type of card matters for the slot. If your pc/ laptop is newer and you have never used the slot, then more than likely the dummy plastic piece is still in it. This needs to be removed before you can insert any cards into it. Also, an SD card will only fit an SD slot, there are many other types of cards as well. If your card slot says that it will except SD, XD, miniSD, and so on.....then you can insert the SD card that you have.

Port with rectangle symbol?


I think that you mean the "PC card slot". It's a slot for using with some kind of external accesories. For example some could use it for a firewire card slot, so that can connect a firewire on the laptop. Here is the left side of your laptop

In case you want here is the link for your laptop from Toshiba.

How do you install ram in a toshiba a105-s4344 laptop


I take it that you already have the correct RAM you need. Wiith that, power off your notebook, unplug it, turn it over and your will see the larg cover closer to the right of the notebook. Unscrew the screw to release the memory cover and place it to the side. Be carefull with static when handling your memory card, install the card into any open slot in your notebook. (The memory card will go in the slot at a 40 degree angle and then 'snap' down into place. Replace the memory cover (the large piece you took off at the begininig.) power up you notebook and the new memory should be registered and ready for use. Good Luck.

    Sd card stuck in memory reader of toshiba laptop


    I had the same problem, read some of the proposed solutions and came up with one that worked for me! Here it is: (1) cut a piece of duct tape that is about half the width of the slot and a couple of inches long (2) use a small flat head screwdriver and depress the card down, so that a small gap is created above the card (3) take a second small flat head screwdriver and force the tape into the gap above the card - adhesive side towards card (4) continue to work the tape into the gap so that it covers as much of the card as possible (5) remove the screwdrivers and gently pull on the tape until the card is removed!

    I feel like an idiot - I can't find the SD card slot on my new Toshiba Satellite A205 laptop


    Hi,
    i,d suggest looking carefully around the top edge of the laptop base. your looking for a small slot, the size of a 50 pence piece. or a quarter dollar US.
    this could be by the left hand-side towards the screen ( as Is On sony Vaios ) If you need a user Manual, they have them @ 7Manuals. @ about $7.00 Or £3.50p UK.
    Payments via Pay-Pal Accepted.
    Hope This Helps Mike @ compurepair.
