Question about Toshiba Satellite 5205-S503 Notebook

1 Answer

Satellite 5205-s505 speakers aren't working, headphones OK.

Got a used 5205-s505 on eBay, presumably in perfect condition. Laptop arrived, I boot it. No sound at all during the boot. Checked the settings to make sure it's not mute. Looked ok. Try to play CD, no sound. Listen carefully, heard very slight buzzing sound from speakers. Try to listen through headphones: fine! Contacted seller. He claims he tested the laptop before shipping and everything was fine. I can't imagine something happens with speakers during the shipment. At this point I'm still trying to figure out if there is anything I can try to verify speakers are dead - or not.

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.

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.

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.

How can I install my recovery CD's if my DVD/CD drive doesn't 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.
