Question about Toshiba Satellite 5005-S504 Notebook

1 Answer

My Toshiba 5005-s504 has motherboard problem.

How do I remove covers to access motherboard? Computers freezes or shuts down sporadically. Local repair shop said problem is on mother board and there charges may be more than new computer. My company lab has equipment to repair boards. Removing all screws on bottom doesn't do it. There must hidden clip or screw I can't find.

Toshiba Satellite laptop 5005-S504 activating power on password. I thought I had the password but apparently not... Do I need to R & R the bios battery? I am being LED to believe that is the answer but...


To reset the BIOS read the information from this link to see what options you have.

In case of your laptop I would use software from Hiren's Boot CD to reset the BIOS (there is a program on the disc called Kill CMOS that wipes the BIOS as well as some other programs to remove the password).

You can remove the BIOS battery, but on laptops it's pretty hard to open it all up to get to the motherboard.

It sounds like the hard drive is dying. I had a computer do the same thing and it turned out to be the hard drive. You should still be able to access the bios though. Try hittind either delete or F1 as soon as your toshiba screen appears.

Toshiba satellite 5005-S504 Secure Digital Card Slot problem


Hi there
Take a close look inside the card slot (you may need a torch/flashlight) look to see if any of the brass pins are bent or out of position, if they are use a very small flat head screwdriver to gently push them back into place.
If all looks fine with the slot and there are no foreign objects inside your card maybe faulty.
Also i suggest the you check the drivers are installed, check this in device manager.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Toshiba Satellite 5005-S504 boots up sporadically


Hi, Sounds like the HDD is on its death march. I purchased the same Toshiha 507 from Ebay and after many Reloading attempts with Restoring to Factory System I deceived to purchase a NEW 80GB HDD from www.drivesolutions.com for 65.00usd. Now Laptop runs perfect.

God Luck on your Mission,
