Question about Toshiba Satellite A135 Notebook

Wifi switch not hooked up - stuck in off, how can I override swit

Toshiba A135 s4407 had motherboard replaced, (mother-in-laws computer) after one year (she never checked wifi) both Wifi switch and volume control never hooked up. Wifi is now in "off" mode. Is there a switch on the motherboard or somewhere else that can be triggered to make the Wifi active or "on"? Tried Fn-F8, but no luck. Tried reinstalling drivers and taking out card and reinstalling - no luck. It seems like they replaced the motherboard with a variant that doesn't include the switches....

Thank you for your help

Did you check to see if the wifi was properly plugged in?
Usually this happens after they replace the motherboards or anything else that makes them unplug things.
I would check to make sure it's plugged in and check the wifi card if it don't plug in and make sure it's compatible.

Toshiba a135-s4407 quit charging when pluged in, replaced battery and charger is putting out 17 volt 4.75amp


Whenyou connect the power adapter into the laptop, does the power LED light up? Ifnot then - The battery adapter or the adapter's power lead or the laptop's powersocket could be faulty. Check power adapter's DCplug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltageshould be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on thebottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that isprinted on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced. If the adapter is OK thenconnect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/batterycharging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's powersocket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position thisLED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a drysolder joint where it is connected to the motherboard. This model Toshiba may have a power socket that plugs onto the motherboard.
This can be repaired but itrequires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket andrepair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.

No response from Toshiba Satellite A135-S4407


Yes, there is a very good chance your motherboard is bad. If you haven't already, please remove one of your two memory chips from the memory bank ( bottom of the laptop ), and try powering up again. Sometimes a bad or loose memory chip can cause a no post issue. If you're still having the same problem, then the only other piece of hardware in your laptop aside from the motherboard that can cause "no video" would be the cpu. Requires a complete tear down of laptop and a known good cpu to test. However, from my personal experiences the A100 series motherboards are notorious for having motherboard problems so it's most likely the motherboard. I can repair your laptop at a great price.
