Touchpad disconnect on satellite a85-s107

Hello,my mouse pad was not working, so I removed the keyboard and discovered, the wire from the mouse pad was disconnected.
I try putting back to where I believe it belong (this would be under the spacebar when the keyboard is installed), but when I insert it in the connection slot, the computer shuts down, and If I do it with the computer shut off, it will not boot up.
is there a diagram I can get to show me where and how the mouse pad wire is connected.

May have virus or corrupt driver, run your anti virus and try reloading divers for mouse and touch pad, you may have to use system restore to an earlier date when thins were working OK.

How do I change a keyboard on a satellite A85-S107 laptop?


1. Take out the battery and AC adapter, unplugged from the wall, enusre the laptop is fully powered off.
2. Remove those screws with a T-8 or Phillips screwdriver.
3. Turn the laptop back over and open it up. Check and see if the Toshiba Satellite A85-S107 keyboard is tucked under any plastic pieces. If so, find them if those plastic pieces are screwed into anything, and unfasten them as well. If not, it probably uses clamps that can easily be removed.
4. Remove the plastic pieces carefully.
5. Unscrew any screws at the top (if necessary) and remove the keyboard itself from top to bottom. You'll notice that the keyboard is connected with a thin, but wide, data cable to the system board at the bottom.
6. Disconnect the data cable attachment of the keyboard which will sever all the remaining attachments of the laptop keyboard with the laptop computer motherboard. To remove this cable, you have to just carefully pull it out from the socket to which it is attached. Then you can lift out the entire keyboard out of the laptop.
7. Take the new Toshiba Satellite A85-S107 keyboard out of the plastic and place it inside with the right orientation, attach the data cable.
8. Refasten the keyboard in place at the top.
9. If you had to remove any plastic pieces, carefully snap them back in and replace any screws you had to remove.
10. Turn the laptop over and replace all of the keyboard screws.
11. Put the laptop battery back in place and switch it on to check Toshiba Satellite A85-S107 keyboard functionality. If everything has gone according to plan, you should be ready to type away!

Need to replace cpu fan on Toshiba Satellite A85-S107 and can not get the laptop appart.


Remove the battery, unplug the unit.
  • Take off the hard drive cover by extracting the two screws that secure it and then taking it off. Take out the screw on the modem and wireless card cover and take the cover off. To remove the hard drive, shift it to the left to disconnect it from the motherboard and pull it out of the computer. Gently disconnect the Wi-Fi card antenna cables and take out the card. Extract the screws on the modem card, disconnect it from the motherboard, and then disconnect the cable to free it from the computer. Remove the optical drive screw, push the drive out of the laptop and then take it off. Extract the 15 screws out of the bottom of the laptop and turn the laptop over.
  • Open the laptop and fold back the LCD screen as far back as possible. Pry up the keyboard bezel (the plastic strip above the keyboard) by inserting a flat-head screwdriver or a spudger in the groove at the right side of the strip. Pull the bezel off the laptop. Extract the keyboard screws and fold the keyboard down over the palm rest. Release the flat cable that connects the keyboard to the motherboard and take the keyboard off the laptop. Remove the screws securing the LCD screen to the back side of the laptop. Disconnect the video cable and the Wi-Fi cable from the motherboard and remove the screws on the LCD screen hinges and then pull the screen off the laptop. There are four visible cables that are connected to the motherboard: the switchboard cable, the speaker cable and the touchpad cable. Disconnect all three. Take out the four screws from the top cover and pry the top cover off by running the flat-head screwdriver along the groove around the entire laptop and pulling it off. Now the laptop is completely disassembled to where the motherboard is exposed as the last remaining component.

Hi, 2 of the key pads came off at my sisters house can you give me an idea how much it will cost to get them re-installed it seems they are only the top parts & one seems to be sticking


Hi,

You really can't purchase just the keys alone, you usually have to replace the keyboard itself. My company sells the keyboard for $69.99 for the OEM and $59.99 for compatible keyboard.

Thanks
