Question about Toshiba (225EXTR5)

1 Answer

I have a Toshiba Satellite series laptop that was dropped and the screen was damaged. I've gotten a replacement but I don't want to mess anything up by changing it myself. Anyone have suggestions? I've gotten the black plastic "frame" around the old screen disconnected around to the hinges but can't figure out how to get it the rest of the way off without breaking it.

You'll need to pry the screen gently forward(away from the plastic casing)...along the side s of the screen will be the hinge brackets.....4 screws (2 either side) hold the screen in place...undo these screws and the screen will be free....the only thing connecting screen to computer will be the video ribbon cable which connects to the back of the screen via a plastic pressure clip...release the clip and your done.....remember to be very careful when installing the new screen as its easy to overtighten the screws and damage the screen

Yes, I just had the same problem. All you need to do is go to safe mode on your computer, search for the file "QSFSltr.sys" and delete that filthy *******.
From there you have too choices. 1: use your warranty to get the money back for the **** you bought, with no ability to get support from the company.2: Use it, and don't download any of iomegas software in the future. (can still be used as plug-and-play)

I dropped my external hard drive, not even a foot, now when i plug it, it just keeps on loading or beeping every 5 seconds.


The power connection to the drive is damaged. The drive is not getting enough power to spin the drive properly so it is beeping. Check the power cord and/or the USB cable for damage as well.

Howto remove key board of Satellite A85-S107


underneath the laptop you will see three or four screw holes with an arrow on them in the centreish of the laptop. remember the keyboard is only in the middle of the laptop and not the edge so no need to undo any more.undo these and open laptop. you should also see two small lumps at the foot of the keyboard either side of the spacebar but lower. this shuold release the main body of the keyboard and allow you to lift as far as your ribbon wire will allow. carefully undo the very small catch at the foot of the ribbon wire and release the wire. don not under any circumstances snap this wire as it will be a very skillfull soldering job to repair the damage.

Cant Start Up


Hi
start with removing the added ram try starting up, if it doesn\t start up does it beep?

if noting happens remove all the ram, the computer should definitely beep now.
Add only the original memory and try starting up you should get picture.

This seems to be a old problem and if you don\t need assistance in solving it. It would be great if you would share to the world how you fixed your problem so other users can benefit from your experience.

Thank you, Ekse

USB connection not working


Your best bet especially considering the low cost of these units is to just take the unit apart (take off the bumpers and remove the screws). Once apart you'll see either a 2.5 or 3.5 standard hard drive. Just put this in a new external drive cage and continue on. You can get most of them for around 40 dollars or less. I would recommend Ultra, Vantec Nexstar Series, Iogear or similar brands as their support and documentation is good for people who are not used to doing this.

My Toshiba laotp's screen goes half blank help!!


Well try to boot into the safe mode.hit F8 on the startup and see if you get the same acreen.If its working fine in safe mode than you need to reinstall the video driver and that should resolve the issue.If it is still not working try connecting a external moniter.If you get the same display on the external moniter than its an issue with the video card and if you get a normal display on that than its an issue with the Laptop screen and you would ahve to get either of thses replaced by contacting the manufacturer.
Hope this helps!

Keyboard detection problem


if the kb works on another system then the ribbion is ok, right?, the port on the motherboard is broken, which is almost certainly integrated(soldered to the board with no wires in between) which means to replace just the port you need to get a desoldering tool and cloth and a soldering iron(do not use a gun, they are not as acurate when working with this small of a space) and of course some solder, not to mention the replacement part or a more seriously broken laptop with the same part that you can take apart, seems like a lot of work to resurect a laptop, i would suggest a new board, new laptop or get a usb kb, maybe one of those rollup ones they sell on thinkgeek.com so you can retain some of the protablity, then again since the onboard kb is not functional it just sorta becomes deskspace for an external one. the fastest cheapest fix would be an external keyboard, next time i would recomend knowing what you are doing a little better before working on a valueable system or any that you cannot afford to loose, I see people break the ribbion cables and connectors all the time when working on laptops, its usualy because they dont know how to open the clips on the connectors, anyways try to be more careful next time
