Question about Toshiba Satellite 5205-S503 Notebook

1 Answer

No network connectivity, missing drivers

I just did a clean install of XP Pro on a toshiba satellite 5205-s503 laptop.
Went to Toshba for the drivers and got most of what I needed using another machine. The device manager indicates missing drivers for the Ethernet controller and the USB controller. Nothing from Toshiba will correct this problem and as the unit will not access the internet, it can't go look for drivers.
So as a work around, I tried to install an old trendnet TE100-PC16R pcmcia ethernet card but it will not install on XP. So much for that idea.
The computer almost connects to the router using the onboard cat 5 connector, but comes up with a "limited or no connectivity" due to the fact that the router did not assign an IP to the laptop. I tried assigning a static address to the laptop and used two good Dns's but still no luck accessing the internet.

    Thanks to pontelemon
    I already have the dhcp enabled on the router. Have other wireless
    devices that work with no problem. Linksys G Mimo router.
    And, I have already tried that Toshiba driver to no avail. So, another workaround,
    I connected a USB network adapter to get the laptop online.
    That has worked. I then tried to do an "update driver" on the Ether controller, again no luck. But the system found the proper dirvers
    for the USB controller so, that is no longer an issue.
    This is an interesting challenge.
    Any more ideas.

Try plugging it into a different outlet. If that doesn't work, test your ac adapter. Check the voltage for 19.5v.

The hard disk has a password on it. If you haven't activated yourself then it went active on its own, a sign that the disk electronic board is dying. This can't be fixed, the hard disk is practically dead so take it out of your laptop before it damages something else. Then put in a new one and reinstall Windows.

Forget password bios toshiba satlite 5205


To reset the BIOS read the information from this link.

In case of your Toshiba Satellite laptop the easiest method would be using software from Hiren's Boot CD as it's pretty hard to open it up and reach for the CMOS battery or the jumper.

Hi,
You will need the restore cds that came with your laptop. Insert the restore cd in your dvd drive and restart your computer. When the message "Press any key to boot from cd" press enter.
Then follow the on screen instructions to restore your computer.

It sounds like the hard drive is dying. I had a computer do the same thing and it turned out to be the hard drive. You should still be able to access the bios though. Try hittind either delete or F1 as soon as your toshiba screen appears.

Assembly manual


I wasnt able to find a manual but keep in mind all the toshiba screw holes should be labeled by length of the screw in MM. That should at least help with the ones on the outside of the case. The ones that hold the motherboard in have arrows next to them.

Hope this helps!
