Question about Toshiba Satellite U205 Notebook

Satellite U205 power adapter damaged and needs replaced

A coworker brought me a Toshiba Satellite U205 that has sustained damaged when her toddler tripped and broke off the center conductor of the DC power in connector. She asked what might be needed to repair the laptop, but not being familiar w/ Toshies I couldn't really tell her anything except I'd look into it.

Is there a full tear down and parts list out?
How do I get down to the level IOT repair or replace the part if possible?
Is the part a modular swap or a harness of some type?

Satellite u205-s5057 freezes up when online.


Sounds like a bug. Download and install CCleaner and Malewarebytes from CNET. Run CCleaner first, both the Cleaner and Registry, then Malewarebytes on a Quick Scan. If there is a Java or Adobe Flash bug in the laptop, Malewarebytes will find them.
Your not done yet!
Download TDSSKiller for Kaspersky. You can find it on Google and at CNET. Run TDSSkiller and make sure there are no root kits. When you are done with that, make sure you have all your Microsoft, Java and Adobe Updates then Run a Full Scan with Malewarebytes.
Please post how this works out for you.

Hello. I have Toshiba Satellite U205-S5034


Yes, this is replaceable. However, it is not easy to do and requires taking the motherboard out of the laptop and decent soldering skills. If your laptop is under warranty, consult the manufacturer and they may replace it for free. If not, computer repair places can do it for around $100 or so I believe. It is expensive due to the skills and time required.
