Question about Toshiba Satellite 2805-S301 Notebook

2 Answers

I cannot open my Toshiba Satellite 2805 S301 DVD-ROM drive.

Toshiba Satellite 2805 S301
The DVD ROM drive is locked shut with a CD in it. I have tried the eject button and the DVD eject buttons with the Power on, and the emergency release with a paper clip with the power off. Can it be opened another way. How do I replace the drive If the drive is damaged and what is the replacement number?

Hi Packman,

. but I´m sure you´ll find it.

Does TOSHIBA SATELLITE 2805-S301 have a way to go wireless


Hello If your using Microsoft Windows open, Controll Panel , System , Device Manager. Look down the list to Network Adapters and click the plus symbol. If you have a wireless card installed it will show the name and type. Right click the wireless adapter and click properties. This box will tell you the status of your wireless adapter. If no wireless adapter is shown you will have to install a card. If the card is present and enabled you may have to turn the wireless function on by using a combination of keyboard keys or look for a switch on the computer. Hope this helps.

My Toshiba Satellite 2805 S301 USB 1 port, does not recognize my Passport external Hard disk drive. What can I do to solve this problem ? Thank you, very much for your assistance.


Hi

assuming that the external hard disk is usb

i would try this

plug in the external hard drive
then go to device manager
then hover your mouse at the top of the box
and look for a icon that says scan for new hardware
then hit the scan icon
your laptop may or maynot recognize the external hard drive at this stage
now leaving it plugged in restart the laptop
and with any luck windows will now recognize it


good luck
hope you get sorted with it

Toshiba satellite 2805-S301 laptop wireless card


Not wireless ready - as none of the 2805's were ever pre-wired with wireless card antennas. You can install a PCMCIA wireless card, or use a USB wireless adapter. Either one will work - the PCMCIA cards will be faster.

Change CDROM on Toshiba 2805 -s 202


IDE 1 is the CDRom (or any optical device attached). IDE 0 (zero) is the Hard drive. So this message is telling you there is a problem with the DVD/CD-Rom, that has halted the boot process. Now you have no choice but to go to BIOS (read startup screen to find the procedure, usually DEL, F2, or F12 keys) and see if the problem can be corrected there (or if not, disable the drive, save change, and try rebooting again). If this is not possible, then you might try booting from an external device (floppy, CD, USB etc) if your system allows that (and if you have the boot software/media). Otherwise, you must remove the drive, in order to regain your desktop (pass the halt stage in boot process). Here is how to remove the CD:

Underneath the laptop, there will be a screw about 4 inches in, on a centyer line direct from the DVD/CD tray panel. Remove this screw. Insert a pin or paper clip (carefully, and STRAIGHT in!) to the small hole next to the CD tray release button. This opens the tray manually. Pull it out to the full open position, then GENTLY pull further, and the whole drive will release from the laptop.

Once you have reached the desktop, you should try to remove the previous driver if possible, via start menu/settings/control panel/system (or r-click my computer and select properties). In system control panel, there is a hardware settings tab. Here you can remove or disable hardware. Try adding a "generic CD-Rom", so the DVD might get past boot process when you reinstall it (later, below).

Now, try to start the laptop without DVD/CD. If it starts normally, your driver change was incompatible, or possibly, in the process of changes you did something that impaired the drive or its ROM (or perhaps needs to be cleaned).

Now try reinstalling the CD Rom drive (no screws yet, just insert fully). If you are still at the same halt, you have cut yourself out of using this CD, unless perhaps tou can reboot with a windows CD while the drive is installed, and let windows detect and install a PROPER driver.

If that is not possible, you need another DVD/CD drive. You can also buy a replacement or cheap older model for testing system at any legitimate advanced PC shop, or many used computer parts stores. Try the drive before you buy, just slide in and mount a CD/DVD. (you may have a special adapter that must be removed from the old OEM drive and attached to new one, and the tray cover may need to be switched to allow the CD to close for testing)

Regardless of the outcome of any of the above, please post your results, and the complete text of the black boot screen here, so I can analyze the problem -or any other possibilities that may be indicated by the post dialog.
