Question about Toshiba Satellite Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Short circuit Hi I have a Toshiba satellite P745-S4217. I accidentally short a chip located right in front of the battery and beside the wifi adapter and where the power button ribbon is attached. After coming in contact with a piece of metal there was a small spark and now the pc would turn off immediately after the power LED comes on. So is there anything that can be done or is it permanently dead?

SOURCE: Hi, I need some help (BIOS locked)...

ok i found a couple more things...apparently you dont have to remove the battery.. I found this site that tells you two "jumpers" (solder squares) C88 i believe under the network card. But if you follow this link and follow the directions it will get you going again.

I don't know exactly at what stage you are at and i hope i didn't cause any trouble but this normally is how we take care of this problem. Unless once in a blue moon we come across one like this.

Hi! You may want to toggle the function button designated for turning the monitor on or off. Press FN button together with th efunction button that has a monitor image on it. some system uses F2 of F3 button to do this. (Example: press FN+F3 or FN+F2 button together once while computer is on to turn on system display)

Short Circuit


Hard to say, take it to a Qualified Computer Tech, perhaps it can be salvaged? The tech can use a multimeter to ID the blown component and suggest a fix. Problem is, with most electronics these days, it's sometimes cheaper to buy a new Laptop, your Laptop is getting a bit out-of-date, maybe it's time to let her go? I have a Toshiba M35X-S311 that someone gave me, it overheats and shuts down. Your has similar specs. Trade up would be my advice.

Add ram Satellite u845


Power down your Toshiba Satellite.

Unplug it from the wall.

Turn the machine over and remove the battery.


Locate the RAM compartment cover, which is usually located somewhere in the middle of the underside, and is about 4-by-4 inches.


Unscrew the RAM cover screw with a Phillips screwdriver and set aside.

Ground yourself by touching a metal object.


This will release any static electricity built up in your body, which can harm computer chips and components.

You can also use an anti-static wristband while you are working.


Remove RAM modules if needed.

This is most likely if you are upgrading the present RAM capacity with a larger RAM chip.


Press your fingers on the clips on either side of the chip to pop it out of the socket.

Pull the chip out of the RAM compartment, holding it by the sides of the circuit board rather than on the chip.


Insert the new RAM module into the socket. Align the RAM module so that the notch lines up with the tab on the side of the socket.

Gently lower the module into the socket. Press into place with your fingers.


Replace the RAM compartment cover. Insert the screw and tighten.

Replace the battery and secure with the lock.


Plug the Toshiba Satellite laptop back in and power up the system.

The upgraded RAM should be automatically recognized.


hope this helps

My Toshiba satelllite A 305-S6905 System unit laptop just stopped charging , it does not switch on. only yesterday, it was working fine with no problems. it is just two years old .


Please check your battery for right voltage. if the voltage is down check the voltage in your adapter. If there is no voltage in the adapter then you might have to open check the continuity of the cord, normally this cord shorts and the adapter cutts off supply due to a high current error. So if there is shor tremove or other wise check the SMPS circuit for failed components, fuse, recifier, capacitor, driver. However if adapter works there must be supply at the battery terminal of the laptop, if not you have a failure in the charging circuit in the laptop. Hope you check this out one by one. Hope I could help. Good day
