Hi i have a Toshiba Satellite model: A135-sp4036, it is Windows XP and i need the drivers for it, i need mostly all but will settle for the Ethernet or Wifi Driver. thank you!

This site has the complete CD of XP drivers..... However they charge for the CD

You can try this site for individual drivers

Try contacting Toshiba support directly and see if they have a download page for it.

Let me know how you make out.

No boot, powers up and all lights but touch pad lights up. before touch pad only lit up when computer started to boot. i press the on button and it starts up but no screen and shuts itself off in 10...

Hi there! What is happening here is the computer is not posting up. Does it show you the windows logo? I believe not? Usually for this kind of problem you can try this steps . First unplug all the external devices connected to your computer like printer,scanner then unplug the power cable/Ac adapter connected to your computer from the power outlet or strip if your using one and make sure that you will take out the battery as well.. Try to press and hold the power button for like 20seconds (you have to do that to remove any flea power inside the system we called this "power cycle").After that plug in the Ac adapter and start the computer normally by pressing the power button again. If the system power on normally that would be great but if not there might be problem with the hardware so you have to contact Toshiba it will be better if the system is still in warranty (Take note of the keyboard lit lights as well cause Toshiba technical support might ask that ). Hope this help you. God Bless...

How do i change HDD in Satellite A135

You will need a 2.5" SATA HDD to change with. (the operation must be done with the laptop shut down)
Unscrew the container with the HDD sign and remove it. Being SATA you just have to plug
it in the connectors and it should work. (of course you'll have to format it and reinstall your OS).

I have a toshiba satellite A200 ,it works with batery but when i put the adapter of the ps ,the sceen becomes black and it will shut down ,so please help me

Sounds like you have a short somewhere: either inside your laptop or possibly the power adapter itself. The cheapest and easiest way to figure out which is causing the problem would be to take your laptop to a local computer shop and ask them if they have an adapter that's compatible with your laptop, then try the adapter with the battery in & out of your laptop. If it doesn't shut down, then I would say that your power adapter is shorting out and causing the problems. If it still has problems when using a different power adapter then I would say that there's something going on inside your laptop that is causing the problem. Many times it's because the female power jack on the motherboard needs to be replaced. There are several other things that would cause this to happen too, but what I've told you so far is the usual problem and solution - in my experience.

Laptop won't run on ac power and keeps shutting down

Check that the AC power works, go to a repair shop and test a different one or have voltages checked with a multimeter.

If the AC adapter is fine, then it is usuall because AC socket solder joints on laptop are broken. In this case , it is a delicate repair, and must be done by an expert repairman.

Toshibba laptop a135-s2276 ,my mother bords smd chip does not work so display of screen does not appear

The problem is well known witht this model Toshiba - the problem is the fan stops working and then hence shuts down to prevent overheating - it does not take long once the laptop is hot. Without replacing the fan just reboot the laptop until you hear the fan start again on reboot.

Toshiba Satellite A135 is DEAD!

Open the back panels, blow out EVERYTHING and remove and re-insert everything. You could just have dirty contacts somewhere. The dust from the fans also travels around inside the computer.

Shutting down

Does it cut out on battery?
How often does it cut off?
Does it just die (no lights or anything) or reboot?

Satellite M40X won't boot

It is most likely a crack in the chip that sends power to the CPU. Fan is on different circuit and is getting power. Almost need a really strong maginifying glass to see a crack like that. Unfortunatly the best solution is a new motherboard. I have had some sucess with resoldering these chips but you need a hot air rework station to do a real repair. Hardest part is figuring out which chip it is. A lot of them are labeled MAXWIN ****. Should be fairly close to the CPU socket. Hope this helps, keep us posted. One other thing to try is pushing down on the laptop in the area of the cpu when you boot it and see if that helps. Opening and closing the laptop screen puts a lot of stress on the motherboard and over time will crack the cold solder joints.
