Question about Toshiba Satellite A135-S4527 Notebook

1 Answer


I have bought a toshiba A135 S-4527 laptop in july 2007. it has a 1 year international limited warranty. just 2 months after its warranty got over, my laptop stopped working. when given for service, they told me that the problem is with the motherboard and i have to replace the motherboard. although replacing the motherboard costs more than 50% of the total cost of a laptop, i was willing to pay the sum because a lot of important data is there in my laptop. now, here comes the problem. they are telling me that the mother board model suitable for my lap is not available now. just 14 months from buying, is this the type of customer service you expect from toshiba ? and so, now i'm in a dilemma of losing all my important data along with my laptop.

does anyone else feel the same for toshiba??

The keyboard on my Toshiba laptop suddenly lost the letters T & E function. All the other keys are working. I bought the laptop from Radio Shack 9 months ago. Is there some way to solve the problem?

Nah - not much you can do. The keyboard's gone bad. Most new Toshiba laptops have a year's warranty, so you should call them and have them replace it for free.

I bought a Toshiba laptop on Fri, 11 march it was only this afternoon i thought about regestering it but was told the reg period had runout what do I do ?

Whoever told you that was pulling your leg. In our company we still register machines that have been omitted from registration 2 years after the purchase date. Machines have at least 3 years guarantee from date of sale and maybe a year's warranty with the place you purchased it from. Have you contacted Toshiba directly?

I'm at my wits end with this laptop. Right now I can't get it to start up Windows. Here's some history: March 08 - Purchased from Best Buy as an open box (display) item. July 09 - Laptop was dropped...

I have personally worked on over a dozen of this model, all of which were "Display Models" for some reason, all from either Wal-Mart or Best Buy. The laptop getting dropped probably has nothing to do with it, several models from the last two or three years from both Toshiba and Dell have had major issues with HDDs becoming corrupted or damaged internally for NO reason, but for some other 'strange reason' neither of them will acknowlege these obvious design flaws.
I would think going to some place like and looking for a new one (not a Dell or Toshiba) would be a smart idea- Cut your losses and list that dead one on ebay "As-Is'

TOSHIBA's service on international warranty SUCKS!!!

Legally need to send them legal notice of intent that you will take leagal action if th eunit not fixed on time and if the unit kept broken you will take it to outside service tech and charge them.

Toshiba A135-S4527 cmos battery dead

I found where the cmos battery is located. By the Toshiba tech support website , it's next to the PCMCIA Slot, just behind it. To get to it, Take off LCD, keyboard, top palmrest, hard drive, battery, memory, top power cover,switch board, modem, network. and some others. Too many to describe here. Items to remove not in order.
I Have the service manual downloaded already.

Laptop Gateway mx8711

Gateway laptop is really ****.
I bought Gateway MX8711 in March 2007, after 6 months i use it...the hard disk failed.
Gateway replaced a new Hitachi hard disk for me but not more than 8 months and it failed again.
Gateway told me that i have no more warranty because the repair warranty is only 90 days.
I bought this laptop and use it not more than 2 years, the hard disk was failed twice.
Usually Hard disk manufacturer provided 3 years warranty for the hard disk. The manufacturer year of the hard disk is May 2007....they should able to help because the har disk not more than a year being used...but they don't. This is really bad customer service and not fair to the buyer.
I will not buy any Gateway products anymore....i swear.
