Go to Control Panel and User Accounts. See if it will let you change the type of account you have to administrator or if you can creat an new administrator account. If that doesn't work log off and try logging on as Admin or admin (try both) and leave the password window blank. See if you can log in under admin and then change your current user account to administrator. You also don't have to run the ISP software to get on the net. You can change the settings to your network adapters manually without software. Problem here is you might have to be an administrator account to do that also.

The keyboard on my Toshiba laptop suddenly lost the letters T & E function. All the other keys are working. I bought the laptop from Radio Shack 9 months ago. Is there some way to solve the problem?


Nah - not much you can do. The keyboard's gone bad. Most new Toshiba laptops have a year's warranty, so you should call them and have them replace it for free.

My P305 will not charge the battery


A friend of mine had a bad battery. I advised her to buy a new battery, which worked fine for several months. Then she called and said her laptop would not work on battery or even plugged in. I had her buy a new charger. A week later, she called and it was not working again. We tried several things (she is some distance away) and finally I had her go get the cord from her old charger (luckily the trash had not been picked up yet) and it worked fine. So even new things can go bad - it sounds like the battery charger or the cord might be at fault.

On one of my friend Toshiba Satellite L45-S2426, the sound does not play at all. Its been doing this over a month now and we're trying to figure out whats the issue is?


It seems either the sound driver has become corrupt or you have mistakenly installed any other sound driver!

Try these steps :

1. Goto Start -> Control Panel.

2. Sounds -> Playback.

3. You will see 'Speakers' in the list of devices.

4. Is there any 'Tick Mark' symbol and 'Working' message ?

5. If Yes, then the sound driver is OK. Check the other settings like, Levels, Enhancements, And Advanced options by selecting the 'Speaker Properties'.

6. After configuring, apply settings and close the window.

7. Restart your system and now check sound!

8. If the above don't works, reinstall your sound driver!

tell me if it helps...tc! :)

Looks like you have become a victim to the Video Burnout plaguing this series of notebook, I had the same issue, when Toshiba replaced the board it worked for about 3 more months then quit again. (this time outside the warranty) I'm looking for another working board to replace mine with. Good luck! it is cheaper at this point to replace the puter.

Hi there


This sounds like you may have a loose/broken jack on the machine. Take a small screwdriver and check to see if the jack is loose. If so, there's your problem, if not, then the problem will be in the power management system on the motherboard, and you will need to take it in for a professional diagnostics in order to track down the exact problem component.
