I need the SERVICE manual for a Toshiba Satellite P105-S6197 (PART: PSPAAU01200S). Additionally, I cannot get any sound from the laptop following a complete wipe & RECOVERY using the 2 Toshiba...

The Service Manual I can provide,

The Satellite P105 is the same as the P100 series of Notebook PC's in regards to the Service Manual,

Go to the 11th line down.
The one that starts with Satellite A10.
In this collection of files go to the 4th line down.
Go across, and click on P100.

This is a PDF file. After you click on the file name it may take up to 30 seconds before you will see the first page. It may also take additional time to fully download.
(Downloaded just now, took 2 seconds to see the first page, 57 seconds to fully download)

Click on the Bookmarks icon to the left side. (Page with a blue bookmark on it)

Additionally you may find this of some value,

[Click on the photos to enlarge.
You are on Page 1.
Page 1::Page2::Page3::Find another model, is on the top, and bottom of the page in white]

If I were to hazard a guess, my thoughts are that it's something to do with the Service Packs.
Windoze, ya gotta' love it.

How do I remove the hard drive in Toshiba SatellitePro A10 EN? (Removing the plastic cover exposes only the end of the hard drive. I'm reluctant to just start pulling on it!

  • The original Toshiba Satellite Pro A10 HDD is fitted into a Toshiba Satellite Pro A10 Hard Disk Drive cradle - Toshiba Satellite Pro A10 HDD caddy.

      • Gently remove the cradle from the laptop, yes pull on it
      • Unscrew the original Toshiba Satellite Pro A10 Hard Disk Drive & remove it from the cradle.
      • Screw the new Toshiba Satellite Pro A10 Hard Disk Drive into the cradle & refit the cradle into the laptop.
      • Re-install XP or Vista
