    The Bios in this laptop is accessible while Windows is running. Right know I don't have one! In Bios theres a few options to boot the system - via HDD, LAN, CD. There is no USB as an option to boot from. This is why I said that Bios says it want work.

I had a similar problem with an IBM thinkpad once. My solution was to purchase a PCMCIA CDROM drive and boot from that. Go to: http://froogle.google.com/frghp?ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&hl=en&tab=wf&q= and search for "PCMCIA CDROM". Your laptop should boot from one of these devices.

Can i use any charger on s505


The Toshiba Satellite 5205 series of Notebook PC, and the S505 series model; uses an AC adapter (Charger) that produces 15 Volts DC.

http://www.sparepartswarehouse.com/Toshiba,Satellite,5205,PS520U-31P1RV,Laptop,AC-Adapters.aspx

You will see AC adapters sold that show 15 to 24 Volts. (DC)

http://www.duracelldirect.com/toshiba_satellite-5205-s505_ac-adapters_laptop_ac-b20h.aspx

This is because the AC adapter (Charger) has PFC.
Power Factor Correction,

http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/Everything-You-Need-to-Know-About-Power-Supplies/181/2

Also I see it is just a two pin AC adapter plug, to laptop.
Center hole is Positive, outer metal cylindrical metal shell is Negative.

Go for 75 Watts or higher though, and not a 65 Watt model.

[ On the case of the AC adapter;
Input: 100 ~ 240 VAC 50-60Hz

Means it can use from 100 to 240 Volts AC, and either 50 or 60 Hertz.

Output: 15VDC 6A

Means 15 Volts DC at 6 Amp's. (Amperes)

Watch the outside dimension of the cylindrical part, and the center hole dimension. Outside cylinder may be correct, but center hole may be too small. Or vice-versa.

My toshiba laptop powers on but doesn't boot up to windows until after i open and close my dvd drive


if there is a quick release for the drive - pop it out entirely and see if works then. You are looking at replacing the drive or motherboard.

Hi,
You will need the restore cds that came with your laptop. Insert the restore cd in your dvd drive and restart your computer. When the message "Press any key to boot from cd" press enter.
Then follow the on screen instructions to restore your computer.

CPU upgrade for Satellite 5205-S505


You would only get a marginal performance increase. If your laptop has 256Mb of RAM, increasing the RAM up to 1Gb (this model laptop cannot support more than 1Gb RAM) would boost the performance of the laptop.
