Question about Toshiba Satellite A205-S5809 Notebook
Toshiba A205-S5809 Computer Laptop will not power on. I tried unplugging the power chord and hold down the power button for 15 seconds. This did not work I also tried removing the battery with the power chord plugged in and held down the power button for 15 seconds but still it did not power on.
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)

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.
