Hi Russ,

Sometimes a laptop will appear in a ghost state, not off, or on if you sometimes shut it down, but close the lid too fast. Try pressing and holding the power button for 5-10 seconds. This should turn it off completely. Then give it a few more seconds and press the power button again to turn it back on.

Hope this helps!
David

I turn on the power on my satellite 1805 and my screen comes on 1 at of 10 times ?


because it's old sorry. this is just the way of many laptops. the only "light" in the tunnel is that it may be repairable and it might even be relatively cheap ($100 U.S.) but you will have to check the yellow pages and/or the news paper etc to find the guys that do it because the big computer stores will charge you ALOT more. hope this helps and good luck:)

I have a Toshiba Satelite 1805-s253. When I turn it on, it attempts to start but then will immediately shut down with the power indicator flashing orange. I check the power supply and that is working ok.


power supply must b okay but the lead connecting laptop may have gone faulty, try changing it, if this is not the reason then some internal hardware problem

Toshiba sat. 1805-S254


I am currently using the laptop model that you described. Go to toshiba support, click download, click portables, click satellite, and where it says: choose model, click show older models. Type in your satellite model on the search bar, (1805-S254) and click 1805-S254 in the results and hit GO. Now, the second thing from the top of the list of drivers says: BIOS. click the plus. Find: ACPI Flash BIOS version 1.10 for Satellite 1800/1805-S204/254/274 (v1.10; 10-23-2001; 671K)
and click it. Download the file and run it. Now follow the directions to make a BIOS floppy disk. After the disk is created, restart the computer. When the screen that says: Toshiba comes on, hit F12 to boot from a different device. Then it gives you a bunch of options. Hit the letter on the keyboard that tells the computer to boot from floppy disk. Then it should erase your current bios and rewrite the old one in. DO NOT update the BIOS! In the new BIOS, toshiba has a file that DOWNCLOCKS your processor. This is what makes your computer run so slow. Now people have complained that computer has overheated and shutdown but since i've downgraded the BIOS, it's been running just fine! Hope this helps! If it doesn't, email me at: fneoh7832@live.com.

If you see picture but kind of dark it may be cable that powers back light.
