Try another cord/charger with the EXACT same power specs. If you have a multimeter, verify DC voltage at the AC jack plug. If the AC jack, in the laptop, has been pulled, damaged, it's may have a loose connection. You didn' say if ANY LED's, battery charge, work? If the battery is charged and it doesn't start on battery only, then you have other issues. It may need a ride to a Qualified Computer Tech.

A bios update should not cause the laptop to fail in powering up. Regardless, whether you used the correct bios update or not, the laptop should still power on. You may not be able to boot to windows, but you should still power up.

You are have hardware failure unrelated to bios change.

Get sure the memories are good. then try reseting the BIOS by removing the BIOS batery, let it out for 5 minutes and place it again. Though you have to disassembly almost the whole laptop. If dont, chek the other "pheripheral" devices, HDD, DVD, and another (If)

SOURCE: Toshiba Satellite Pro 4200 stuck in hibernate.

I have a toshiba satellite pro 4200. I have put a new memory module 128MB in in addition to the 64MB memory that was already in. The system does not recognise the 128 and the 64 modules when installed together. Do the two modules have to be of the same value i.e. 128 or 64 or is there another way of getting the system to recognise both modules. Many thanks BB

Manufacturers use the same computer case on many models If the bay is empty, there are no connectors, then basically your motherboard model does not support a 2nd hard drive. And those connectors and components have not been build into this motherboard.

You have a empty slot in the case but there is no hardware to connect the drive to.

You are stuck on 1 drive.

Put in a 120GB SSD drive for example and then use external usb hard drive.

Downgrade to Windows XP.


Due to the fact of the many people that wish to downgrade to Windows XP, many computer distribution companies keep current driver software that is compatible with the various Windows OSes. I checked the Toshiba website for drivers for the Satallite A205-S5809 and they have drivers for WIndows XP, XP SP2/SP3, Vista 32-bit, and Vista 64-bit. They have all the drivers you should need to make the changeover. I hope this helps.

THE LAPTOP JUST SHUTS IT SELF DOWN


Check if the cooling fan is actually turning on or if the exaust is cloged with any derbis. If so, you should try cleaning them and later observe if it works. However, if the cooling fan fails to run you should replace it.
