Question about Toshiba Satellite A135-S4527 Notebook

1 Answer

Weird lines on screen, freeze-up; laptop won't start again -- no bios, dead.

4 months out of warranty, our Toshiba Satellite A135-S4527 was doing fine until some weird lines showed up on the screen and the computer froze. The only way we could turn it off was to unplug it and remove the battery. Upon restart, the HD light came on and we heard it accessing the HD (sounded normal). Then nothing. Once again, the only way to turn it off was to pull the plug and remove the battery.

We suspect the motherboard, but the diagnose and repair price will be as much as we paid for the laptop. One thought was to try to pick up the exact model on eBay for less then the motherboard price, and try swapping in our hard drive.

We're open to thoughts about how to get out of this while still salvaging the data on the hard drive. Thanks!

An easy way is to buy a laptop HDD USB caddy (2.5") and put your HDD into that, connect it to another PC to remove the data.

Toshiba A135-S4527 cmos battery dead


I found where the cmos battery is located. By the Toshiba tech support website , it's next to the PCMCIA Slot, just behind it. To get to it, Take off LCD, keyboard, top palmrest, hard drive, battery, memory, top power cover,switch board, modem, network. and some others. Too many to describe here. Items to remove not in order.
I Have the service manual downloaded already.

Toshiba Satellite A135-S4527 display problem


First try an external screen to see if your operating system is loading , if it does get a flashlight point it on the screen and check if you see a faint image , if you do it must be a bad FL inverter and if not a bad LCD, try calling toshiba tech 18004577777 to check your warranty if you still have warranty send it for repair.
