Is satelite 4300 wi fi capable? where can i buy battery of sateilte 4300 series?

If your computer has a USB-slot or a PCMCIA-slot, then it is capable of using a USB-to-wireless adapter stick, or a PCMCIA-to-wireless adapter-card.

Look on eBay -- find the model-number on the current battery, and search on eBay, being sure to search both "body" and "title" of eBay listings, to find "compatible" batteries.

I have a toshiba satellite a215-s7422. I already asked your techs about the cmos battery, and i am not willing to try removing this on my own per their advice. But is there anyway i can format and...

Sounds like a bad hard drive to me - if you're gonna toss the thing, toss it in my direction, why don't you?

"sometimes the drive shows up in bios" is the dead giveaway. the HDD is intermittent.

This thing uses a 2.5", 9.5mm height SATA hard drive, which is pretty darn cheap. You can buy it in stores, eBay, online...

Toshiba satellite pro 4200 wont start,just 1 flashing amber light

I had a similar problem on SatPro6100. Mine was LSSSLSSL (10010001).

Thinking that the laptop was buggered I decided I would take it apart and have a look at the insides.

Whilst it was apart I also disconnected the BIOS battery.

Couldn't find anything that looked like it had burnt out so put it all back together again.

When I turned it on again the darn thing was working fine!!!
Go figure!!

The whole thing was apart for about 2 hours or so.
I don't know if it was removing the main battery and leaving it out for that time or whether it was resetting the BIOS (by disconnecting its battery) that fixed the problem.

Anyway, I have managed to get all my data off the laptop so not too worried if it screws up again.

I do however always disconnect the power source BEFORE shutting down the laptop and only reconnect it after I have pressed the on button. Seems to be working fine (for now!)

Hope that helps someone out there!

Laptop won't turn on

keep pressing f12 when the computer first starts up this should show a list of boot devices, choose the hard drive. if the boot menu doesnt show up youll need to go into your bios setup and make sure the hard drive is the first boot device. if it still wont boot then you likely have a faulty hard drive or connector. Im guessing you dont have a backup of your assignment? You may need to take out the hard drive and have someone who knows what they are doing plug it into a desktop computer to retrieve your documents off it.
