Toshiba A135-S4527 laptop firewire problem

I have a Toshiba Satellite A135-S4527 and it has an i.Link (4-pin Firewire) port on it. It is identified in Device Manager as Texas Instruments OHCI Compliant IEEE 1394 Host Controller. There is also a 1394 Net Adapter under Network Adapters. I am trying to connect my sony DCR-TRV 250 camcorder usin 4 pin - 4 pin cable, but it is not detected. However, this camcorder works well with my desktop where I connect it using 4 pin-6pin cable as desktop has 6 pin connector. I have already tried different 4-4 pin cables etc. I think the problem is with firewire port as other firewire devices are also not detected. Any ideas how to make this firewire port work?

Just now i formatted my laptop and installed windowsXP. For that i need all kinds of drivers to installed and i dont know were to find this.My laptop model is A135-S4527


I bought a Toshiba A135-S4527 with Windows Vista Premium installed on it. I quickly decided to downgrade to XP Pro. It took me days of searching to locate all the drivers since Toshiba does not provide XP drivers for this laptop. Installing all the updates from the Windows Update site did a lot of the drivers for me. HOWEVER, Windows Update will misdiagnose the display adapter. It will try to install a driver for the Intel 945GM but it must be some generic 945GM driver, because it will not give you full functionality (e.g., multiple display outputs, etc). Use the method I describe below to get the correct 945GM driver for this display adapter.

=====================================================
Hardware and drivers needed to run Win XP Pro on Toshiba Satellite A135-S4527
==============================================================
Run "infinst_autol.exe". This is an Intel Chipset Software Installation Utility (now called Intel Chipset Device Software I think). It will identify and load the proper driver files (.inf) for various things. I did this at the end last time, but if done near the beginning, it might take care of things like display adapter, etc. Check Intel's site for the most updated one. Go to http://www.intel.com/support/chipsets/inf/

Display adapter is Mobile Intel 945GM Express Chipset Family
Driver was named win2k_xp14182.exe. I downloaded it initially from
http://downloadcenter.intel.com/deta...1&dwnldid=9683
&agr=n&lang=eng&prdmap=2301

Mouse is Synaptics PS/2 Port Touchpad
Driver file was called XP_2K.8.3.4.zip. Can be downloaded from the Synaptics website.

Wireless adapter is Atheros AR5006EG
Driver can be gotten from Windows Update (or maybe the Win Vista CD too)

Ethernet adapter is Realtek RTL8139/810x Family Fast Ethernet NIC
Driver can be gotten from Windows Update (or maybe the Win Vista CD too)

Modem is Toshiba Software modem
Driver can be gotten from Win Vista CD.

During XP installation, drivers were automatically loaded for:
- multimedia card reader
- firewire port (IEEE 1394)
- DVD/CD drive
I have this for Mobile Intel 945GM Express drivers:
http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Prod...ProductID=2301

Using Atheros AR5xxx 5.3.0.35 for wireless drivers:
http://www.opendrivers.com/downloado...php?href=47456

Realtek High Definition Audio 5.10.0.5436
http://drivers.softpedia.com/get/SOU...ver-R170.shtml

SmartCard 2.0.0.6
Haven't looked

Intel Chipset 8.3.0.1013
http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Deta...13499&lang=eng

Realtek RTL8139/810x Fast Ethernet NIC
http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/win/54582

I used a program called "driver genius" and it located the driver versions needed for this laptop.

How to remove the cmos or bios password and want to remove the password in booting up, my laptop is toshiba satellite a135-s4527


The BIOS password is removed by the BIOS configuration, you need the BIOS password to get into the BIOS configuration.But if you do not have the BIOS password then you need to construct this dongle device.
TOSHIBA BIOS PASSWORD DONGLE
You can build a dongle that plugs into the printer port.Purchase a 25 pin male D sub connector and solder insulated wires to the various pins as listed below. The pins are numbered on the connector
http://www.tilman.de/sonstiges/toshiba/dongle1.jpg this is a picture of the finished dongle


Wire the pins as follows :-1-5-10, 2-11, 3-17, 4-12, 6-16, 7-13, 8-14, 9-15
Plug the finished dongle in the printer port and power up the laptop. The password will be reset, go into the BIOS configuration to check the BIOS password, you may have to disable the BIOS password.

TOSHIBA LAPTOP SATELLITE A135-S4527 WON'T POWER UP


Not charging . . . And probably the power pin ... where the AC cord connects to thecomputer. That particular component is very fragile. The part torepair it runs between $ 5-$15 but the labor to repair it will costanywhere from $ 100-$250. It can be repaired by you if you are verycareful taking the system apart. Just pay attention to every detail ofyour dis-assembly. I also recommend you get one of these to stop the problem from happening a 2nd time.
