Question about Toshiba Satellite M105-S3004 Notebook

1 Answer

No power-up No prior issues, no history of power problems. Left the laptop untouched for a week and when I tried to power it up: If you press the power button, the power button LED lights up, but nothing else starts whirr, no hard drive light...nothing. Behaves the same whether the AC adapter is plugged in or not (battery power). Please help!

See if this helps-
Unplug the power adapter. Remove the battery. Plug in the power adapter. Attempt to power up.
If that doesn't work-
Power down. Remove the hard drive and CD drive, also floppy drive if you have one. Disconnect the cables to any external devices that you might have attached. Remove all of the memory cards. Replace 1 memory card in the main slot,only. This will reseat the memory card. Power back up and see if the system comes up to a BIOS screen. If not, and you have more than 1 memory card, try swapping to the other memory card. If BIOS comes up, start reinstalling each item (Hard drive first) one at a time, attempting to bring the system up after each item is installed. If the BIOS screen doesn't come up with everything disconnected, you'll need to disconnect the LCD screen (internally) and hook up an external screen. If BIOS shows up on the external monitor at this time, you have a bad LCD screen.
If nothing in this process seems to work, you probably have a bad mother board.
If you have any questions, please ask.

How can I get my past history

Internet History on a Computer
Web browsers keep an internal record of the websites you visit.
This history also called a cache makes future access of websites easier because some of the data is already loaded in your computer.
Internet history is also useful to look through when you cannot remember the name of an important website you visited.
The creators of the big three Web browsers as of the time of publication Internet Explorer, Firefox and Chrome make viewing your browsing history simple.

Open an Internet Explorer window.
Press "Ctrl" and "H," or click the star to the left of the browser tabs and press "History."

Click on the day, week or month you wish to view. Internet Explorer will keep your Web history until you clear the cache.

Mozilla Firefox

Open Firefox.

Click the "History" drop-down menu.

Select "Show All History."

Locate the day, week or month of the Firefox history you wish to view.
The dialog box will show all history since you last cleared your "History" cache.

Google Chrome

Open a Google Chrome browser.

Click the wrench icon located on the toolbar.

Click "History."
Google Chrome will display all of the websites you have visited within the past 10 weeks. However, websites you viewed in "Incognito" mode or secure pages will not be displayed.

My sony reader looses battery power while turned off. I have heard people read several books on one charge while I left my book untouched for less then a week and my battery is at less then 1 bar. Is this...

If you will not use the Reader for 1 week, the battery will be drained. This is normal operation. But, if the Reader is showing only 1battery bar within less than a week even after charging it fully, there might be an issue occcured with the Reader. In that case, please chekc whether you've charged the Reader by connetcing the Reader to a USB version 2.0 port of the Computer.
If the issue still occurrs, please try resetting the Reader by pressing the RESET button using a sharp-pointed object.
Above mentioned steps should resolve the issue. If the issue still persists, service of the Reader may required.

Wont shift out of park

The security lock is in the steering column. Go back to the same shop; they're already familiar with your problem. You'll have to call them obviously. Try this; pull the shift lever hard towards you and **** it a towards the left as you work the key. If you do get it to come out of park, go straight to the shop, don't shut it off somewhere, you may have to tow it.
