Question about Toshiba Satellite A15-S127 Notebook

1 Answer

Screen was shattered

Replaced the Sharp LCD with a Toshiba LTM15C166 LCD from a Dell Latitude C810, Model No.PP01X. What I get is a lightshow of gradually changing colors. Pretty but not useful. Do I need to load the drivers or what? Help...

    Thanks HellNash!

    Great sales pitch...
    I'm broke, Dammit.
    Yeah, I'm probably barking up the wrong tree trying to do this, but I would still like to proceed ...
    The shattered LCD was a Sharp, if that helps or makes any sense. A Sharp LCD in a Toshiba laptop...
    Okay.
    So it's cool for Dell to put Toshiba LCDs in their laptops and Toshiba likes Sharp LCDs a lot I guess...
    This drivers and BIOS stuff is looming on the horizon. I really don't want to go out and buy a Sharp LCD, even though the factory is just around the corner (Hmm, for real, knock, knock, Hello, anybody want to answer some questions in there?), when I've got a perfectly functional LCD desperately trying to come to life in a perfectly good laptop. Call me crazy. I just want it to work, and I'll hack this thing until it works.

    Zerachas.

Notebooks like toshiba's are hardware and software specific. Other hardwares will work but not guaranteed to provide full and satisfying results. Drivers may fix the problem. But I suggest you get a orginal Toshiba LCD

How do i replace ide/eide cable on my dell latitude c840


Buy a replacement and fit it I guess. Why would you need to replace an item that doesn't fail?
As far as I am aware there is an adapter; http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/HDD-Hard-Disk-Drive-Caddy-IDE-Adapter-Connector-DELL-LATITUDE-C800-C810-C840-/380698290269?pt=Laptop_Adapters_Chargers&hash=item58a362e85d and maybe a flexible cable; but that is for the screen.

Dell Latitude C810 wont hold charge


Batteries for portable systems have a average expected life of 300 to 500 discharge / recharge cycles. On systems where you didn't use the battery a great deal, the battery may have a useful life of several years.

In you case, the batteries have long exceeded their normal life so you will need to find replacements.

Here are several sources:

LCD PROBLEM


if you can get hold of a second Dell Lappy (same model) which is broken (not broken screen) you can swap the broken screen for the good one. It means opening the laptop, but due to the smashed screen the warranty is invalid anyway. There is usually 1 or 2 cables coming from the screen 1 for signal and 1 for power. you can explore the broken lappy to see how the screen connects,

I would suspect that your CD laser is bad (CD uses a different laser than DVD), and therefore should be replaced. Here is an ebay search to help you out: http://search-desc.ebay.com/search/search.dll?sofocus=bs&sbrftog=1&maxrecordsreturned=300&frpp=50&from=R10&satitle=c810+cd-rw+drive&sacat=-1%26catref%3DC6&fts=2&sargn=-1%26saslc%3D2&sadis=200&fpos=60169&sabfmts=1&saobfmts=insif&ftrt=1&ftrv=1&saprclo=&saprchi=&fsop=1%26fsoo%3D1&coaction=compare&copagenum=1&coentrypage=search Best regards, torgo
