I have a toshiba satellite a305-s6909 and just replaced the motherboard and when i went to power it on nothing comes up on the display the screen stays black?????


A couple of crazy ideas:

1. Press the Fn key with the (usually) blue icon that looks like two monitors. That's usually Fn/F5.. That could help if the keys were pressed before and the video was redirected to an external monitor.

2. The ribbon cable from the motherboard to the monitor came loose, or wasn't inserted during the replacement.

How to switch on wlan ?


Hi,

You can turn ON the WLAN in two ways. The most common way is by flipping the physical WLAN switch ON. The switch is usually located at the front side of the computer (look below the light indicators at the bottom of the touchpad or at the left / right / side of the computer. On some computers, they're above the keyboard.

If that won't work, you might wanna try a combination of function key (Fn+ wireless key).
For Toshiba laptops it's Fn+F8, and for Lenovo it's Fn+F5, Dell and HP usually uses Fn+F2 but every brand has a different combination so check the F1 up to F12 keys for the wireless symbol.

Cheers,

Mouse cursor is stuck, touchpad does not appera to be working


Hi

Thank you for your query

This seems to be a common issue on Asus, from your description it would seem your touch pad has locked up

Please try the following combination of keys

fn+F5
fn+f8

If the above 2 fail there will be a key nest to the power button with a rectangle shape printed on top of it please pree this on its own or with the FN key

Aplogies for the different combinations, but there are different combinations with different manufaturers


If this has been useful please leave postive feedback/vote/testimonial - Thank You Again
