Question about Toshiba Satellite A105 Notebook

Toshiba a105 s2194 won't turn on.

I have a toshiba A105 S2194 laptop. It's over a year old and the screen just stopped working. When I turn it on, the lights do flash...but the screen will not turn on. I do not have the manual or any disc's. I leave it on all the time (as I was told) but this morning the screen was just blank. Would appreciate ANY ideas you have! Thanking you in advance! Ron S.

Please try to remove the battery and just connect the power adapter to turn it on. You shoudl get the screen to work. After which, power off and then connect the battery back.

If this does not work, it maybe a hardware proble with the screen or the inverter

    I'm sorry this did not work for you. Do you have a PC monitor? You can try and connect the monitor to the laptop and try and see if you get a display on the external monitor.



    If this works, it would probably mean that the LCD screen of your laptop is faulty

Forgot window xp password to login for my Toshiba Satellite a105 s2194 system unit Model PsAA5U-00Z01C


Lost Windows password:


  • Login as Administrator. Try with no password (load safe mode if you don't see Administrator). Press F8 during boot to access Safe Mode. XP only.
  • Login as other user (if other user is available) and manage users. Must be an administrator.
  • Reformat computer.
  • Use 3rd party software to remove password. Like http://www.top-password.com/reset-windows-password.html
  • Free software option would be Hirens Boot CD. This one is command prompt only. http://www.hirensbootcd.org/ Must follow instructions exactly.

Ports dosnt show up on device managere on Toshiba satellite a105s2194


Your hard drive is probably dead.However there are stillhopes for hard drive datarecovery.
Put the hard drive in a plastic bag to be compatible for the freezer. Freezingsometimes works to revive a dying hard drive, at least for a shorttime(Probable just about 20 minutes), but be sure that the bag is sealedtightly so that condensation and ice crystals don't form. Put it in yourfreezer for 24 hours that will do the trick. While it's still cold, plug itinto your computer.And you may be able to view it in 'my computer'. And you mayact quickly,because you may only have 20 minutes to recover your data off itand after that the hard drive is completely dead.
If it fails, you will have to go to a recovery office where supply datarecovery service but let's hope not because it will cost you a lot of money andwhether they can recover data is not guaranteed.
Here is a tutorial to guide you how torecover hard drive data.

I have an A105-S2194, when I turn it on the power light come,the fan runs but nothing shows on the screen, I dont hear the HD but if I put a CD in it spins but still nothing on the screen nor any beeps?


this could be caused by a lot of things most commonly being the motherboard, but since there are so many causes the best solution would be sending the unit to a repair shop where they can correctly test and diagnose your machine. If you have a best buy store in your area they are toshiba certified.

BOUGHT A USED A105-S2194 DONT HAVE PASSWORD


Hello dogg14,

Here is a link to a program that will do the trick for you

http://ophcrack.sourceforge.net/download.php?type=livecd

load the iso file to a PC, burn the cd (make a copy from the iso image) put the cd into the CD-ROM drive and boot from the CD it will run ophcrack which will use a decryption algorithm to find the password of the system in question.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

Built in wireless not working or showing up


Assuming that you have a Linksys wireless router, go to Start>Run then type 'http://192.168.1.1' and Enter. A logon window will appear. Use 'linksys' for the user name and 'admin' for the password. Now you should be looking at the Linksys configuration utility which will show your status. If you are using cable select DHCP for protocol, if DSL use PPPoE. good luck, Steve Medley

The tool could not get HDD physical information.


Laptop hard drives are usually the 1st to go when it comes to issues with laptops.

I would recommend replacing it. Roughly 50 bucks for a 40 or 60Gb laptop Hard drive. Install it and try your recovery cd again.

My wifes laptop is from 2001 and it has gone through 2 hard drives. Its just the way they are. Backup data, always!

Issue


The computer models listed above may display a "Password =" prompt when the computer is turned on, even though no power-on password has been set. If this happens, there is no password that will satisfy the password request. If the computer is turned off and back on again, it is very likely that the same password prompt will appear. The computer will be unusable until this problem is fixed.

If the problem has not happened yet, you can prevent it from happening in the future by upgrading the BIOS to the newest version.

The occurrence of this problem on any particular computer is unpredictable -- it may never happen, but it could happen any time that the computer is turned on. If this problem does occur, it will be necessary to send the computer to a Toshiba Authorized Service Provider, who will fix the problem at no charge to you.



Resolution


If this problem has not yet occurred on your computer, then click the following link to download and install BIOS version 1.40. This BIOS displays a power-on password prompt only when a power-on password has actually been set via the BIOS Setup program.

You may also browse for a newer version of the computer's BIOS at pcsupport.toshiba.com.

For more help, see Support Bulletin 98081213 Obtaining downloads and support docs from the Toshiba Support website.

If the problem has already occurred on your computer, then please make arrangements with a Toshiba Authorized Service Provider to have this problem fixed at no charge. To locate a Toshiba Authorized Service Provider (ASP), please visit Toshiba's Global ASP Locator at http://pcrepair.toshiba.com

BTW, I've heard that this only happens when you boot up on battery power.

Maybe you can confirm this...
