    Thank you so much. I have another question... the sound quality is getting bad. It will crackle once in a while, and "cut out". Is is possible to replace something, or could this be the motherboard? Thanks again.

    Yes, I do. I know how to un-install and re-install the drivers. I should do that?

As long as the output voltage from the power supply is the same as what your laptop needs your good to go, but, also check the output "amps" you need the amps rating to be the same or more on the power supply. The laptop will only draw the amps it needs so if the power supply amps rating is higher no problem, but if the power supply amps rating is lower it could cause the power supply to over heat and maybe die on you.
If you are unsure please check with someone familiar with electrical ratings.

    With the sound problem the first thing I would do is reinstall the sound card drivers.

    Do you know what hardware drivers are? would you know where to look if I asked you to check "Device Manager" in the "Control Panel"?

  • Richard Finch Oct 20, 2008

    Un-install and then let Windows redetect the soundcard after a reboot is where I would start. Let Windows reinstall the hardware drivers automatically, if there is no improvement then try and do a driver update and let Windows look on the internet for updated drivers.

    Let me know how you get on.

Toshiba satellite L305-s5955 will not power up


If there is no power light and it can't charge your laptop, it is likely that the charger is dead. You need a new laptop charger. So try a new adapter to confirm the real issue.

There are two kinds of ac adapters for your toshiba l305-s5955

Toshiba Satellite L305 AC Adapter 75Watt 19V 3.95A

Toshiba Satellite L305 AC Adapter 90Watt 19V 4.74A

You should choose the right charger depending on your original adapter's specification. If the original one need 90w, you won't buy 75w that will bring damage to your laptop. If it needs 75w you can use 90w too.

Hi,
I had same problem with my Sattelite L300. Motherboard has a defect in one Proadlizer film capacitor exactly on the back of CPU, the original ref. is nec-tokin 0E907 (900uF/2.5V) or similar code. I've replaced it by 4 tantalum capacitores of 470uF/2.5V each and 2 capacitores of 220uF/2.5V, all in paralell mode in same old place of nec-tokin component.
Vote for me... :)3_10_2012_6_45_55_pm.jpg

Power problem with laptop


The problem may be in the charger now. It could have shorted out. Do you see any lights on the unit when it is plugged in? James

Targus ac70u adapter; 0% available, ( plugged in, not charging )


How old is your laptop? It may just be that you need a new battery if it won't hold a charge.

Further, this charger worked previously on this laptop and with this battery? If so, you definitely might be ready for a new battery.
