Question about Toshiba P205D-S7429 Satellite 17.0 Inch Notebook P

1 Answer

The Primary Control button broke off.

I have a Satellite P205D-S7429. The Primary control button has broken off. Because of upgrades to the hard drive and memory, the warranty is negated. (But Vista is more efficient)

Does anyone know how to replace this button?

Thanks for any help

Keyboards for the Toshiba P205 series cost approx. 25 dollars on ebay. Individual keys if you can find them run about 4-5 bucks. The key attaches to the keyboard plate by two apparatus, the first being a scissor jack looking platform that snaps onto the metal plate over the key button. It will hook on one side and then snap into the other. I have to use glasses in order to pull off this repair. Once the platform is attached, the "cap" where the letter is stamped, should be placed directly on the support and using your thumb, roll pressure from one side to the other and you will hear the cap snap back on in place.

Basically the motherboard IS the laptop.You can always try to upgrade, but it may end up costing you more that the price of a new machine.

I need to know if the mother board from the p205d-s7436 is compadable for the s7438 model


Satellite P205d-s7436 motherboard,

http://www.sparepartswarehouse.com/Toshiba,Laptop,Part,K000056150.aspx

Satellite P205d-s7438 motherboard,

http://www.sparepartswarehouse.com/Toshiba,Laptop,Part,K000056150.aspx

Same part number used for both laptop models.

Satellite P205d-s7436 specifications,

http://www.cnet.com/laptops/toshiba-satellite-p205d-s7436/4505-3121_7-33428376.html

Satellite P205d-s7438 specifications,

http://www.cnet.com/laptops/toshiba-satellite-p205d-s7438/4505-3121_7-32658635.html

Just by comparison of the specs the data suggests only a Processor change, Ram Memory amount, and Harddrive size.

Uses a Socket S1 processor socket on both model's motherboards,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_AMD_mobile_microprocessors#.22Tyler.22_.2865_nm.29

Both models use an AMD 690V graphics chipset, (ATI Mobility Radeon X1200)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AMD_690_chipset_series

The answer is Yes.

I have a toshiba satellite p205d-s7438 and the screen cuts off while in use


I would boot the computer up and press F2 and check the power settings in the BIOS. It sounds like it is going to sleep on you. If that doesn't work, check your power settings in the control panel.

I have a 150gb hard drive with 2gb memory. How can I upgrade my hard drive and memory


As with most laptops, there are two memory slot. This laptop has 1GB in each. You need to remove one or both and replace with 2GB boards. The 2gb memory boards are around $50 or so. Changing memory is easy to do.
Replacing a disk is easy also, but you need to get your programs from the old disk to the new. That usually takes a local shop to do that. You may just want to buy a new computer instead of upgrading.

Is there a replacement for the ati radeon x1200 for my toshiba satellite laptop 215-s4747 and if so can I replace it? New games do not run on my laptop even with an updated driver and the lowest settings...


Typically, graphics cards in laptops are incredibly hard to upgrade. Consider it impossible. However, contact Toshiba and ask if you can upgrade. Some laptops are upgradable.
