if same thing happens with movies in full-screen mode, you probably need a display driver, if so download it from the link below after specifying your exact model:

The battery charges for 5 mins then stops any ideas ?


Welcome to Fixya.

If this same thing happens even when you charge the computer while it's turned off, then we might be looking into 2 major faults:
  • Battery
  • Motherboard (Contact point)
It would certainly be helpful if you can borrow a spare battery that will work on this toshiba laptop - if the same thing happens again, then it's the motherboard that needs to be replaced. Best to see if your computer is still within the warranty and check for replacement/repair options through the website below :

Toshiba NB 205 has "antimalware doctor" virus. Internet still works but about every 5 minutes the antimalware doctor pops up and interferes with everything I'm doing; and I am not able to access the...


Download Malwarebytes ( free version)
Install, boot into safe mode with network (F8 on boot up).
Run a full scan with malwarebytes.
This should get rid of that rubbish.
Please write back if you still have problems after that

Need a keyboard removal guide for Toshiba netbook nb-205-n230


If you need to ask "how", I recommend that you STOP, and take the computer to a qualified technician, who can safely and correctly repair your computer.

My sound aint working on my laptop and it say`s there is no audio device but it was working last week. what should i do?


first of all, did you shut down the laptop compltely since that happened? sometimes there's a lot of stupid things happening with computers-suddenly drivers stop working etc. Try restart the computer if you haven't done so before.

if that doesn't help, install the drivers from Toshiba site. I can help you find the drivers if you can tell me which exact model you have of the laptop, and if you know the exact model of the sound card it would really help

Wireless network adapter won't turn on


Hi there.
It sounds to me that the Atheros wireless card may have gone bad, in some cases this does happen.
Check in the bios to make sure that the wireless adapter is enabled, apart from that i cannot suggest anything else as you have just about troubleshot everything a PC technician would do before coming to the conclusion that its the hardware which is at fault.
If the machine is still under warranty then please take advantage of that, if not then a reputable PC repair shop will be able to fit a new card in the laptop and they will make sure it works before it comes back to you.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Toshiba Satellite A-205 laptop cannot find operating system.


"Died" can be a lot of things... I'm a software and hardware engineer and if I spill coffee on my laptop it's going into the trash; might be able to save the Hard Drive, RAM, and CPU. Does the computer even boot? If so, I recommend going to this website and downloading a Live version of Ubuntu and burn it to a CD.

http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/download

When you boot to it will detect all your hardware and run the Operating System from the CD without any changes to your computer. You can open the "Partition Manager" tool and reformat the drive so your recovery disk might work with a clean NTFS partition.

LCD screen mostly dead


There are no lights to replace in an LCD. If the LCD is damaged in any way, it must be replaced. Sorry. Email me the model of your laptop. I may be able to find you a cheaper screen.
