I'm really sorry but I'd say your laptop is damaged beyond repair. To try and identify and replace every component that suffered damage would most likely exceed the price of buying a new laptop.

Probably not what you wanted to hear, but that's my two cents worth.

I'm sorry to say that your baby just cost you a new laptop. :'( If there was any critical information that you need off of it, you can ask a good technician (aka not geek squad) if they can get it off of your hard drive. That's all I can suggest. I am sorry for your loss.

Where do I find the part number for the motherboard

Look near the memory slots. You will see labels. Also look all inside the board for labels. Write down the numbers you see on your motherboard. Then get on Ebay and look for motherboards for your laptop. The board on ebay will have model numbers on them, look for a number that matches what you wrote down.

Below is a link to the motherboards I found on eBay for Toshiba Satellite A100.

Below is a link for the A105 motherboards

How to take shell off toshiba c655-s5049, i need to reset mother board

Pictorial disassembly guide for the Toshiba Satellite C655 and C650 series of Notebook PCs,

You can click on each photo one at a time, to enlarge.


1) Observe Anti-Static Precautions
Your body carries Static electricity. Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit) the delicate hardware components inside a computer.

I suggest you buy, and wear an ESD wrist strap, and connect it's alligator clip to a good ground source.
Example of an ESD wrist strap,

I connect to an unpainted surface, of the metal frame of an empty desktop computer case.
If your table you're working on has metal legs, connect to an unpainted surface on one of them.

Barring none of the above applies, at least place a large metallic unpainted object on the table, and connect to it.
Perhaps a metal serving tray, or metal (Unpainted) knickknack.

2) Use a multi-compartment container for the various screws you will remove.
Label each compartment for the area the screw/s come out of.
If no multi-compartment container is available, use a clean egg carton.
label each egg holder.

Some screws look VERY similar to other screws.
Do Not mix them up.

What do you mean by reset motherboard? If your thinking is that you are going to remove the CMOS battery for a while, then reinstall it to clear a BIOS password, this = no.

There is a capacitor on the motherboard which keeps enough residual power, so that the BIOS password stays in play, even with the CMOS battery removed.

(The CMOS battery is referred to as the RTC Battery. Real Time Clock battery.
As soon as the Keyboard is removed, it is right there on the motherboard. Uses the same battery holder as a desktop computer, and it looks to be a CR2032, just like a desktop CMOS battery )

There are two pads which are shorted across briefly, with a small flat tip screwdriver.
Usually rectangular in shape, and each approximately the size of a BB.
This drains the residual power from the capacitor.

Location? Dunno
Generally under a small piece of Mylar plastic sheet, and sometimes under the Ram Memory modules, or under the wireless module.

Also, this link has a free Service Manual,

Under the Toshiba main heading scroll down to the subheading that begins with -
Satellite A10.
Go to the second line in this 'paragraph', and scroll across to C650.
Left-click on C650.
(You may also want to take a look at C655D)

After you click on the file name C650, it may take up to 30 seconds before the first page comes up.
It may also take additional time for the file to fully download.

Where can I find a schematic or instructions to open my toshiba satellite u205-s5067 laptop. I want to clean/replace my fan.

Taking apart a laptop to change the fan is a relatively simple task. Just keep track of where all the screws go and follow these steps:

1. Shutdown the laptop and remove the AC adapter. Disconnect any devices, such as a printer or external DVD-ROM or drive, that are attached to the laptop

2. Remove the laptop battery. Turn the laptop upside down, slide the battery release latch and then pull the battery out of the bay.

3. Unscrew the hard drive cover. Grab the hard drive tab and shift the hard drive to the left to unplug it. Lift the hard drive out of the bay.

4. Unscrew and remove the PCI memory cover, the optical drive cover, and switch cover.

5. Unscrew the two screws that hold the keyboard to the base, these are located in the middle of the rear panel. Flip the laptop over so it is right side up, open and remove the keyboard by using the keyboard release switches located above the keyboard. Next, unplug the Toshiba Satellite U205-S5067 Fan cable.

6. Close the laptop and turn it over so it is bottom up. Unscrew the display assembly screws located under the laptop screen hinges. Turn the laptop over so it is right side up. Open the laptop and unplug the display assembly cable and disconnect the wireless antenna from the display assembly. Unscrew the display assembly from the laptop base and remove.

7. Unplug the mouse pad cable. Turn the laptop over so the bottom side is up and unscrew the base screws which are located along all four sides of the laptop base. Gently remove the base of the laptop.

8. Turn the laptop over so it is right side up. Unplug the fan cable from the circuit board. Unscrew the screws holding the Toshiba Satellite U205-S5067 CPU fan assembly to the laptop. Lift the fan assembly out of the laptop.

9. Insert the new Toshiba Satellite U205-S5067 CPU fan assembly into the lap top. Screw the assembly unit to the lap top and plug the Toshiba Satellite U205-S5067 CPU cooling fan cable into the circuit board.

10. Reassemble the laptop by repeating the previous steps in reverse order.

Hope this helps.

Laptop keyboard problem

When you have a problem like this, you need a new keyboard. The keyboards on a laptop are more fragile than full-sized keyboards, but remember that they are just electronic parts. Fragile circuits can be damaged by misuse (including accidentally spilling liquids). Also, they can fail (just like any electronic part) for no apparent reason.
My suggestion--get a new keyboard. They really aren't all that hard to replace.

I want to get a new mother board for my toshiba satellite A105-2001

for you laptop motherboard all you need is to give you supplier the model number of you laptop and they should be able to supply you with the exact, right motherboard because laptop of the same series will carry the same motherboard, the only difference might be the chipsets, but all your other hardware will be compatible to that motherboard. This is your model number you need: Toshiba Satellite A105-S2001
