Allright this one can be tricky so we need to isolate the problem between software and hardware.

First, get into the bios and see it's being detected.

If not then turn off the computer and unscrew the drive from the laptop, MAJORITY of laptops only need to have one screw unscrewed to release the drive. If yours doesn't then you'll have to do a little more work, let's just assume you have the majority for now.

Next, pull the drive out, feel free to give the back connector a quick puff of air, now carefully place the drive back into the laptop so that it's nice and tight.

Check to see if that solves your problem.

If not we'll try something else.

My staellite A205-S4707 gets a charge, powers on but will not stay on for more than 30 seconds. any thoughts here?


A couple of thoughts,

Is this the case while connected to the charger? If not try starting it while still connected to the charger. If it runs OK, your battery may have died.

If it still doesn't run, it may be a over-heating problem. Check underneath, see if all the vents are clear and free of dust.

Toshiba satellite A205 DVD player partially Inop


The disk drive could be going bad, or the lens may be dirty.

Try getting a dvd lens cleaning kit if you don't already have one, and run that. Make sure to read all the instructions that come with the cleaning kit.

Try this:

Open a command prompt. If it has been opened before you should see it on your start menu. If so , RIGHT click on it and select Run as Administrator.

If it is not directly on your start menu , go to Start > All Programs > Accessories > command prompt and do the same.

In the command prompt , type "ipconfg /release"
without the quotes of course.

Then type in "ipconfig /renew"

You should have an IP Address now.

Type "ping www.google.com"

you should get something like this:
