Was your problem lines on the screen, if so toshiba has changed the graphics card on that board. the answer by upl1nk is right you wont be able to upgrade the board to a more powerfull one only the cpu, and mem, thats if it hasnt been maxed out already. oh and if you do change it then you will need to download some updates for windows from the toshiba site cos there is a conflict with the qosimo player on the g and f series. hope this helps

I don't belive you can very easely. Then again, you might, but never from any motherboard that escapes from the qosmio series laptop. Remeber you are contrained to the laptops chassis, not that much space, and the plug exits aren't changeable.

Toshiba Qosmio G15-AV501 will not boot

Subscriber/user FMFM85 had posted a solution for another laptop that worked for me. That was Power down, remove battery, remove power, wait five minutes, plug in power and do not install battery, I rebooted to last known good configuration. This method got me further along.from the absolute DEAD state the laptop was in. Now I know that the laptop is really hosed in other ways. I will keep you posted.

My laptop wont start its a toshiba g15

have you tried pulling each stick of ram individually?
if there is still no boot then its safe to say that the motherboard or one of the two video cards has failed. its a pretty common on the qosmio g series

I have a Toshiba Qosmio G15R and I need drivers

I went to the Intel site and downloaded the Intel® PRO/100 VE Network Connection driver here. It worked great. Now if I could find the right audio/multimedia drivers I'd be happy. Hope this helps.

pop the keyboard and look on the board next to the clock battery. You should see three jumper points, WITH THE POWER OUT AND ALL BATTERIES DISCONNECTED, short terminals 1 and 2 with the end of a flat bladed screwdriver. Replace all power sources and reconnect the power.

I had the same problem, what you need to do is call Pamela Saunders at Toshiba Corporate in Irving, CA and she will get it repaired for you at no cost to you regardless of warranty. This is a bad batch of computers.

The Phone Number is: 800-457-7777 or 949-462-6000

Toshiba G15-AV501 Qosmio - no video 1) Following is what I have tried - and did not work, by the way everything I installed had worked for over a month w/o problems, video The problem began when...

Well, I have good news for both of us.

Not only did I find a fix, it's free.

The F15 and G15 series Laptops (which we both have), have an Out-of-Warranty fix (for free). This is not normal, as you may know. The reason it's free, the motherboard is defective... I just called today and they're still replacing the motherboard for free!

Go to the Toshiba website and call their Tech Support number. They'll tell you it's out of warranty and they're going to charge you, just ignore all that. When you get your foreign tech support person on the phone, tell them you've read that the F15 and G15 series were defective and were being replaced free (even without warranty). They'll get your product number of the laptop, process the order, ship you a box (pre-paid shipping), you ship the laptop to them, they fix it, they ship it back, you're back in business!
