Problem with booting my A205-S4577 with the powercord on

Hi,
I am facing a problem with booting my windows vista home version which was preloaded in my Toshiba satellite A205-S4577 series laptop with the powercord on.
When ever I Boot after the ''starting windows vista'' screen before the logon screen the laptop screen goes black and doesnot respond anymore I am having to reboot it removing the powercord then it boots normally with no problems.
also after the laptop is on and I am working on it. If I plug in the
powerchord some times the computer hangs also.

Have you tried a new power AC/DC convertor ? make sure you have the correct spec...see manual for power adaptor needed. Cost less if you can get a loan of one. other than this i would be looking into checking the power jack. hope this helps

Can't get my wireless up or use the ethernet it says the wireless is disconnected i down graded from vista to xp


hi,

you may download the proper driver from the manufacturer's support website. This is the link for your wireless card driver.

Click on downloads tab and choose windows xp as the operating system. it will show a list that is available for download. in your case, this is the name of the driver you would like to put on your computer, Intel Wireless LAN Driver V11.1.1.16 for Windows XP(v11.1.1.16; 07-31-2007; 6.62M). I hope this works for you. Kindly reply should need further assistance. Good Luck! Mongkey "Understanding explains better..."

Toshiba Laptop A205-S4577 won't start up


If the battery is removed, it should still start up with the charger connected. A lot of laptops develope problems with the jack where the power supply plugs in, from constantly plugging & unplugging the charger. The jack in the back of the computer is probably bad.
