How to replace a headphone jack on a toshiba satellite A10-S169?
sometimes the speaker sound goes off but if I tweak inside the headphone jack it comes back. Regular headphones go in very loose.

I think you are on the right track, if the headphone jack is worn and shorting out itll kill the speakers because it thinks headphones are plgged in, ebay would be a good start for parts, maybe even call toshiba and speak to their tech support.

My computer's sound doesn't auto switch from hdphn to spkrs.


Two possible causes one is the headphone jack and the other a driver issue.

The headphone jack has a metal leg that is pushed out of the way when you insert the plug. It then switches from speakers to the jack. That's how it is supposed to work. The third leg can get dirty or bent or loose and not switch correctly. If it is dirty you can sometimes clean it just by inserting it and pulling it out a "few" times. If it is mechanical ie loose then it needs to be replaced which means replacing the main motherboard. You can check for warranty but from experience it might just be one of those things to get used to instead of trying to get them to replace a main board.

If it is a driver all you can do is hope they update the drivers. You can check the drivers versions and release dates on the Toshiba website. Just go to www.toshiba.com then support then laptop and then find your model. Drivers and sort by your operating system. Unfortunately Toshiba seems to have a history of unresolved sound card driver issues.

How do I replace the CMOS battery for Toshiba Satellite A10-S169. Thank you


The cmos battery in laptops is not easily replaced. The whole laptop must be taken apart to get at the cmos battery which is soldered to the motherboard. You should be able to find a new battery on ebay but then will require someone to take it all apart and resolder the new battery onto the motherboard

Make sure you have all from the Driver drop-down list.


Just as an aside, if you are using ADSL, why are you bridging through COM? Just curious.
