Re: 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 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

Well, I had a seagate, they have new software, let me just tell you its a pain to use with a lot of devices, its very secure, but also limits your usage. I returned mine and got a different brand. I would suggest trying to reformat it to possibly a fat32 style. go to properties, and click format, should be able to select it although seagate probably doesn't allow this. I would return it for a different brand so you don't have to deal with all these issues. I am guessing this is a newer one which is where the problems are. They are getting very bad reviews.

Hard Drive not detected

If you are sure that the disk is okay, then I do suspect it is a power problem. Laptop USB ports often can not provide as much power as desktop USB ports. If possible try using an external power adapter with the disk and see if that works.
You can try some other external hard disk troubleshooting ideas, but probably it is the power.

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.

Re: Prestigio Laptop

Well as you have already reinstalled the windows than the next thing would be to get the keyboard replaced as there could be an issue with the keyboard itself.Also try connecting a external keyboard if you have and see if that works.Contact your manufacturer to get it replaced.

do you have any operating system disks or restore disks, if so re-install with the restore disks and it will be just as it would have been, what operating system are you using, probably windows xp or vista, but most likely solution is to re install the OS, or try exploring any other options given by the error dialog.

Computer shuts itself off

Hey Cidney, Sounds like the laptop is overheating, the machine will restart or turn itself off once the temperature goes over 60-65c. Might be a faulty fan or need the thermal paste replaced on the cpu. best bet is to put it into a shop for a free quote if theres anyone near you. afraid i dont think you will be able to fix it yourself, and can sometimes it can be quite costly.. Sorry cant help anymore All the best John
