Hello,

To Lock your computer you must hit F1 or Fn + F1
To cancel or unlock hit "Back space" or a small key with a arrow with a curve like a simbol "loop" same image showed on the tape recorders autoreverse (very hard to explain)

If you hit Fn + F1 this lock automatically your computer and only the principal user (who knows the pass can get in)

You can download the manual of your laptop here:

Shuts down after a few minutes


Try another battery.
If it's doing this while plugged in, there's probably failing electrolytic capacitors in the external power unit. Repair or replace it. Chances are the power supply will test as good under no load.

My refurbished Satellite A305-S6825 boots up to a blue screen and nothing else . . .the mouse moves but nothing shows on the screen and it just sits there!


Just do onthing..

Once you get blue screen, Press ALT +CTRL+DELETE Key and you will get windows task manager. There you need to go to FILE and select New Task (RUN ) and type explorer.exe and press . Now you can see the icons on desktop. If still you are not able to get icons you have to format or Repair the operating system

It works good on battery but when AC adaptor is plug in the laptop cuts out and restart by itself.


Problem description: The laptop shuts off when AC power adapter is plugged in. The laptop works fine on battery power but as soon as you connect it to AC adapter, the laptop turns off.
Possible cause: 1. Power adapter failure.
2. Motherboard failure.
Possible troubleshooting steps and repair solution: First of all, test the power adapter. Make sure the adapter outputs correct voltage. It's possible that the output voltage is not correct and the laptop shuts down to prevent the damage. Test your laptop with another known good power adapter.

If the problem still exists, even after replacing the adapter, most likely it's the motherboard failure. Replace the motherboard.

Toshiba A305 shuts down randomly. Hard drive replaced twice by different service companies. Still shuts down. Upon startup and after its been on a while. Any ideas?


More than likely it's from heat. The A305 gets hot quick, especially if your model uses the AMD processor. I would suggest you cleaning the machine out with some compressed air and verifying that you are running the latest bios revision for your model.

I've fixed lots of A305 just by doing the above ;)

Give that a shot, if it doesn't work let me know and I'll suggest more things you could try...but I'm pretty confident heat is causing your issues.

What are the slots on the bottom of my Toshiba Satellite A305 S6825


The slots on the bottom of your laptop are for air circulation. Used with a laptop cooling system to push air through the bottom of the unit and circulate out the side vents. There may also be vents on the rear of laptop for the same purpose. Hope this helps you with your problem.
