Question about Toshiba Satellite A205-S4617 Notebook

1 Answer

Ready for take off

My toshiba literally sounds like it is about to take off and fly away. I brought it to best buy where I bought it from and they said that this is normal and that it can happen over time. But it lately its been getting louder and I've hear this is often what happens before you're hard drive crashes. Also it usually runs very warm.

 Also it usually runs very warm.
You might want to consider acquiring a cooling docking station:

If your have never grabbed a 40-50 W lightbulb, you will quickly learn why your Toshiba is very warm.  They dissipate about that much power internally. 
About the noise? Well, without hearing it it will be difficult for anyone to diagnose it; it could be the hard drive but they are pretty small to make much noise.  I would suspect the CPU cooling fan that's going to fail early; they can get quite loud if they are a sleeve bearing type and the bearing has gotten sloppy enough for them to rattle.

How do I re heel a pair of Fly London Tong Sandals


Shoe-Goo will bond and create a sole but it may be harder than expected and not the 'rubbery' feel you want. But it will work and is likely your best bet. Perhaps cut rubber sole from another sandal or shoe and use shoe go in between let set over night and then cut away excess with a razor and re goo around edges.

Refrigerator insect


I guess the pests are fruit fly or white fly from any fruit you may have left. Leave the door open . Switch off the fridge . Use a fly spray. Clean the fridge with warm soapy water and vanilla ( soapy water leans the fridge while vanilla clears the odours) Close the door and turn on. Next time let the fridge run as it consumes very little power if the door is not opened and is ready for use on return.

I have a Toshiba laptop L305D-S5895 and a Toshiba Hi Def LCD 37AV502U tv. I got an audio cable, that I have in the headphone spot & the original cable needed to connect the pc to the tv. I am getting all...


Which cables have you attached to your TV (the video and audio)?
Does the TV has left & right audio inputs (RCA connectors)?

When you attach a headphone to the laptop, the speakers on the laptop switch off and the sounds divert to the headphones. Try and connect a cable (stereo) from the headphone outlet on the laptop to the audio stereo inputs on the TV.
