Hi,

Based on your post/description, it would appear that powerjack has lost its solder connection to the motherboard or even justcold solder. This is a relatively easy repair. It would involvere-soldering at least two pins/points. What is more challenging is thedisassembly and gaining access to the bottom of the board to performthe soldering. Perhaps these pages maybe of illustrative help.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

How do i change the cmos battery a toshiba a215s7422


The cmos battery used on the A215 is the soldered type. It is a small battery soldered in a small bracket on the motherboard. You have to disassemble the laptop down to the bottom case. Once you have removed the palmrest you will see the battery in its holder in the middle of the motherboard. The solder has to be softened to remove the battery and another soldered in its place. Below is a link to the picture of the motherboard with the battery in the moddle of the board.

Toshiba satellite pro a200 The laptop has stop recharging, i don't know if its the battery or the adapter or the actual laptop with the problem? please help!!!


First do not remove battery and use charger only. Lets start at the beginning first if you are using a UK three point plug check the fuse in the plug. Next some adaptors have a small green light on when connected to the mains. Another way to check the adaptor is, if you no someone with a multi meter (used to check voltages etc) get them to check if there is a reading from the end you plug into the computer should read 19volt. That would check your charging adaptor. Battery well if adaptor is charging then it is almost likely to be your battery.
If you have to replace the battery take it with you when you go for the replacement and ask them to check it in another laptop if they wont do this go elsewhere.
By what you say you have a fault with the adaptor.
Good luck

Hello sandeep

Since the problem here is compatiability issue. Suggestion: why dont you try other video chat programs. Skype is also good for video chatting and free to use. If all doesnt work you should consider asking for a replacement.

Best of luck

My Satellite A200 will not start sign says resuming windows and the screen goes black and windows does not start. Windows VISTA BASIC installed


I would suggest you disconnect your Satellite A200,then restart Vista to get it up and going.Then go check in Device Manager, which you get in Control Panel>System>Hardware>Device Manager.In the dropdown list under Sound/Video and Game controllers,find your A200 open it by clicking on it and see what the problem is {very likely a driver clash or Vista incompatible driver}.Uninstall the device until you find the correct driver software.Regards.Georgeo

Can you please tell me the video card that my Toshiba Satellite Pro A200 series laptop has (Model Number PSAF4A-008009) as i need to download an update Thanks


According to Toshiba, you should have an Intel GMA X3100 Dynamic Video Memory Technology 4.0.

To be sure, there is usually a link to your laptops specs on the Toshiba website so you can double check...
