Turn the laptop upside down with the Battery facing you. In the middle of the case you will see a L shaped cover. The the RIGHT of this is another cover that is more square shape. Remove the 2 screws and then lift the cover. You will then see the hard-drive.

Although the battery is good and fully charged the Tohiba will not turn on unless plugged into

Reboot your machine and see what key it says to get into the Bios or System Setup. Go into the Bios and check your settings on the Battery.

Afterwards, reboot and go into the Control Panel and check the battery settings under the Power Options.

My Toshiba Satellite A70-S256 PC Notebook no sounds coming from earphone jack or laptop speaker.

Just make sure the speaker looking icon at the right bottom corner of te screen doesn't have a red slash across it. If it does, move the cursor over it and click the left mouse button to remove it.

Hope that was the cause and helps.

Hi Barb,

On the Toshiba A70 you should try holding down the fn key at lower left and pressing the F5 key which is the video transfer keyboard command for pretty much every Toshiba laptop. Otherwise, their little pictograms on the F keys almost always have a tiny representation of a laptop next to a monitor.

Hope this is helpful.

Hello, I am trying to fix some of the non working laptops at my Agency. One of them is a Toshiba Satellite a70-s256. At start up, it sounds like the computer is firing up but there is a blank screen.

Its possible that you have a faulty monitor. To isolate or confirm that its the screen, get a VGA cable and plug it into a stand alone monitor. If you see anything then it must be the laptops wiring to the screen or the screen itself.

Toshiba Satellite a70-s256 fan issues

Instead, turn the computer off.
Disconnect the AC power.
Remove the battery.
Purchase a can of compressed-air.
Give your computer a "blow-job", to remove all the dust that has accumulated inside your computer.
The dust has been acting as "insulation", forcing the fans to run faster, and with more noise.

Cooler computer -> quieter computer.

Toshiba equium m40x won't power up

whats happening is that the cpu is overheating and shutting down the computer due to your fan not spinning, if you wish to test this remove the bottom panel and remove the fan and its cooling tubes should all be one part (quite easy 3 or 4 bolts) and blow on the cpu or put a pedistal fan facing it or any other form of cooling that wont damage it, and try to start it if it boots for a while it is the fan and you will need to replace it, i had this exact problem yesterday
