#2 is correct. The 512MB shipped with laptop is insufficient. There is a spare slot for memory so added 1GB DIMM and now up to 1.5GB. It has made a huge difference.

IMHO, better to add the additional memory and better yet then remove a lot of the unnecessary programs that launch with startup. (It's a bunch of Toshiba addins and such that are not necessary for most people.)

My girlfriend has this same laptop, but I know damn well it isnt because of a build up of stupid programs. its because this laptop comes equipped with the BARE minimum of RAM (512) for windows Vista. You need to upgrade your ram to 1.5gigs to 2gigs. So I hear that is. I am going to convince the lady to do it with hers and I will return with results.

Why don't you clear some of the startup items using start-run-msconfig-startup Uncheck what you do not use frequently...also do a diskcleanup and a virus/spyware check...that should help you out.... oh...before i forget...also clean the prefetch/temp folders to get more space on the drive...

Cant find CD key for toshiba satellite A130 /A135 . how do i get key?

I think you mean the key to access windows vista home basic. The key should be located on the back of you laptop near some bar codes it should be 25 caracters long like XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX.


You can be sneaky:
Download a nifty program called the "ProductKeyFinder" it should be free. Run it on your friend's computer with the EXACT SAME operating system and and copy down his key. If you get in trouble that's too bad.

My Toshiba satellite A135 doesn't power on, it just flashes the power light when i plug in the charger,and the battery light doesn't light up at all. I already replaced the charger so it is not that.

clear the cmos(bios), you must unplug the battery on mainboard(if you are an expert and you can open the laptop) for 10 hours (or short it) then power the laptop.

The recovery on my Toashiba Satellite A130/A135 doesn't work

Try to boot the machine in safe mode by pressing F8 as the computer starts up, if will let you boot into safe mode as it sounds like there could be some bad sectors on the drive causing it to hang on boot.
To check this right click on the C drive and select "properties", then select "tools" tab, in the tools option check the volume for errors.
This can take some time to perform so please be patient.

If you can't get the machine to boot into safe mode please post back

Toshiba A215 bios password

This is a known bug on some Toshiba lappies - and one of the reasons I updated my A215 BIOS 4 times in the last few months!

Not sure if this is what happened to you, but...

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.


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

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

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

Maybe you can confirm this...
