You don't say if the EQ will used to modify/edit an audio stream or simply provide a way to equalize the audio output from the tiny little speakers in the laptop. So, I chose to answer the modify/edit. There is a nice and versatile freeware program called Audacity which will do the job for you. EQs of all sorts is under the "Effects" heading.

sounds like the camera wires are broken. you would have to take apart the screen portion of the laptop to see if it is connected still. you would then have to splice the wires together if they are broken/damaged

SOURCE: can i connect toshiba satellite a205 to tv?

Yes VGA carries RGBHV--RGB and Horizontal and Vertical Sync information along with DDC info where available.

Now is that port on your TV a d-sub 15 pin standard VGA connector?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_connector

If it is, then yeah you should be able to output VGA from a PC to the TV with a proper cable.

However if the TV has DVI or HDMI connections on it, it's better for you to connect it that way. DVI/HDMI is a digital signal and if it's a digital-based display tech TV, then you're better off using that. Also if the TV does resolution above 1360x768 (i.e. if it does 1080p) you can get higher resolution by going via DVI/HDMI...

SOURCE: Toshiba satellite a205-s5804 laptop will not start

Hi, there are a couple of possibilities:
1. If you are able to start the laptop on battery then the dc connector on the motherboard may be broken or have come loose, in which case take it in for repair.
2. The power switch may be broken, again take it in for repair.
3. Tip of the trade: Disconnect the battery and plug in the charger, see if it will switch on. If not then put the battery back in with the mains still plugged in and see whether it springs back to life.
4. Tip of the trade 2: Leave well alone for a couple of days without any battery or power connected then plug back in and see if it will switch on.
Removing the BIOS memory, don't know where you saw that but not recommended at all unless you want to render your laptop completely useless. Don't attempt to strip down unless you are technically experienced with disassembling a laptop.

Toshiba satellite monitor is scrambled, how to fix?


Check to see if the problem is the screen Inverter, or the graphics chipset, or the LCD screen.
Use an external monitor as a test.

If the screen of the external monitor shows a scrambled display you have a problem with the graphics chipset.

If the screen of the external monitor does Not show a scrambled display, you have a problem with the screen Inverter, or the LCD screen.

90 PERCENT of the time the fault is the screen Inverter.


External Monitor;
1) You can use a CRT monitor, (Looks like a small TV), as a VGA monitor,
Or
2) You can use a flat LCD screen monitor that has a VGA cable.

A) Laptop OFF, and monitor OFF, attach the VGA cable from the External monitor, to the VGA port on the Toshiba Satellite A205 series Notebook PC.

This is an example of a VGA cable, and it's connector, and a VGA connector on the laptop,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_connector

B) Turn the monitor on. If it is a CRT style let it 'warm up'.
Turn the laptop on.

C) The display is supposed to automatically show up on the external monitor.
If it does not, press, and hold down on the Fn key, and also press the F5 key.

Still no?
Holding the Fn key down, tap the F5 key again.

Display good on external monitor? Problem lies with the screen Inverter, or the LCD screen.
Either OR.

Primer:
An LCD screen does not produce light. It needs an additional light source.
A Backlight is the additional light source.

A Backlight is a CCFL.
Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp.
Similar to Fluorescent lighting used in homes, and businesses, but on a MUCH smaller scale.

An Inverter (screen Inverter) is used to convert the electricity provided by the laptop, for the LCD screen, and Backlight.

As previously stated, 90 PERCENT of the time the fault is the Inverter.

Laptop open looking at the display assembly, the plastic thin frame in front of the LCD screen, and surrounds the LCD screen, is the Display Bezel. (Resembles a picture frame)

The Display Bezel is removed to access the screen Inverter.
The Inverter is right behind the Display Bezel, and located at the bottom area of the LCD screen.

The Display Assembly has to be removed from the laptop, to remove the Display Bezel.
Toshiba's term for the Display Bezel is Display Mask.

The Toshiba Satellite A205-S5804 Notebook PC is one of the Satellite A205 series of Notebook PC's.
This is a link to a free Service Manual for a the Satellite A205 series of Notebook PC's,

http://www.tim.id.au/blog/tims-laptop-service-manuals/#toc-toshiba

Scroll down to the second Satellite heading. The one that begins with Satellite A10.
Scroll across, and click on A200.

After you click on A200 it may take as long as 30 seconds before the first page comes up.
It may also take additional time for the file to fully download.

At the top of the PDF file is the page number box. It is to the right of the Down Arrow.
Go to Page 146.
4.10 Display Assembly

Page 151 shows how to remove the Display Mask.
4.11 Display Mask

Page 153 deals with the screen Inverter.
4.12 FL Inverter Board

Takes a really sensitive (Read fairly expensive) multimeter to test an Inverter.
Due to the low price, and ease of replacing, the screen Inverter is replaced to test whether the old one is bad.

Example of a screen Inverter (FL Inverter Board) for a Satellite A205-S5804 Notebook PC,

http://www.batterysupport.com/toshiba-satellite-a205-s5804-inverter-p-216526.html

Compare to the price of a replacement LCD screen,

http://www.laptopscreen.com/English/model/Toshiba/SATELLITE~A205-S5804/

To summarize so far;
1) Display shows good on external monitor. Replace screen Inverter. Still the same problem? Replace the LCD screen.

2) Display on external monitor is scrambled also?
Fault lies with the graphics chipset.

Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integrated_Circuit

The graphics chipset is a GPU.
Graphics Processing Unit,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GPU

The GPU for a Toshiba Satellite A205-S5804 Notebook PC (Part Number PSAF3U-0NR00V), is an Intel (Mobile) GL960 Express,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_chipsets#Core_2_mobile_chipsets

It is soldered directly to the motherboard, therefore it is Integrated Graphics.

{Integrated Graphics is also known as OnBoard graphics.
ON the motherBOARD.
The GPU is soldered to the motherboard.

In comparison if the GPU were soldered to a removable adapter card, it would be a graphics card, and Not integrated graphics }

This means if the graphics chipset is found to be bad, motherboard replacement is the solution.

How can i change the video card in a toshiba satellite A205-S5852? what is the proscedure? is it even possible? please help!!


This laptop has integrated GMA 950 graphics (onboard graphics chip). This is embedded int he motherboard and cannot be changed. Very few laptops have separate graphics cards.

If the graphics chip has failed (usually caused by excess heat) then replacing the motherboard is the only solution)

Toshiba a205 color off on screen, it seems that the colors are bleeding


Try this first. Start your Laptop in Safe Mode. Are you still having the problem. If you are try reinstalling your graphic card drivers..the color bleeds are mainly due to improper installing of graphic drivers...the blue screens are usually due to memory dumps(RAM problems)...

I feel like an idiot - I can't find the SD card slot on my new Toshiba Satellite A205 laptop


Hi,
i,d suggest looking carefully around the top edge of the laptop base. your looking for a small slot, the size of a 50 pence piece. or a quarter dollar US.
this could be by the left hand-side towards the screen ( as Is On sony Vaios ) If you need a user Manual, they have them @ 7Manuals. @ about $7.00 Or £3.50p UK.
Payments via Pay-Pal Accepted.
Hope This Helps Mike @ compurepair.
