As a start, I would suggest reseating the Hard Drive, Memory modules, DVD reader, and anything else that you feel comfortable in accessing. I would suspect that a component or cable was knocked loose by the fall. The problem may be more serious than this, but it could be as simple as making sure that everything that you can get to is plugged in solidly.
Best of luck and have a good day!

My computer fell off a table


Since your computer fell off a table this is definately a hardware problem, something might have shifted inside and in this case I would not recommend that you open it to see what shifted.
I would recommend that you take it to a repair store for them to pull it and fix it for you. Sorry to hear.

Hello My Toshiba Satellite a75 s229 Notebook Screen is Black and Glass inside screen looks cracked. Laptop fell 3'' ft. off table onto carpeted floor. Laptop powers up fine and I can hear windows start up...


Hi there,

The way to find out if it's just the screen is to connect the laptop to an external monitor. Pay attention to the F keys when you connect the laptop. On most Toshibas, you'll see a small depiction on the F5 key of a laptop next to a monitor. You either have to press that key alone, or hold down the fn key and then press the F5 key and let go to transfer the signal to the external monitor.

If the external monitor shows up good and you can perform all other functions on your laptop while viewing the monitor, you need only replace the laptop LCD. If it does not display correctly, then you're into the next round of troubleshooting.

Hope it works as above.

Good Luck

Broken power port (dc jack)


Whenever I replace dc jacks, MAJORITY of the time the entire computer needs to be taken apart down to the motherboard.

Usually I just remove every screw that I see and then carefully start to pry pieces off the laptop. Don't force anything though, everything should come apart with minimal effort, as long as the screws are out.

If you're going to attempt this repair yourself you're gonna need to set aside about two hours to complete it.

You'll need:

a soldering gun
solder
solder wick

Make sure you have a big, flat, clean workspace to work on.

If you have a camera it might help to take pictures along the way. At the very least keep track of where the screws go.

I usually separate them into two categories: outside the laptop and inside the laptop.

It's not the easiest thing to repair for the home user but you can do it if you've got the patience.

Hope this helps.

Best of luck!


Hope this info helps.
