Looses power I have a Toshiba Satelite P25 series lap top. Works great but often looses total power, I let it cool and runs fine for a while. It will loose power when no one is using it as well. What do you think.

Re: looses power

Sounds like it is overheating. Make sure that the fan is running,and the fan is clean. The inside may be full of dust, and cleaning too
There are laptop coolers you can use , circuit city has them for about 20.00 bucks.

My toshiba P25 satelite comes on and works fine except only 5 or 6 keys on the keyboard work

Keyboard's bad, in all likelihood. Best source for these things is eBay - you get a choice of new or used, just don't pay tourist prices for them ($15 delivered would be my max limit for these things). In nearly all Toshiba's, the plastic piece above the keyboard, which may extend to (and include) both hinge covers, has to come out for you to get at the keyboard. Shouldn't be too difficult....

The monitor on my Toshiba P25-S5093 does not have any display of any kind; all black. I have display using external monitor.

Does the display show anything before you enter windows? If yes, then press the key to transfer video back to your original screen once you enter windows. It should be the function key "Fn" + F5 - F8. looks for the icon which shows a monitor or says "CRT/LCD".
If it doesn't show anything before you enter windows I'm afraid your screen needs to be replaced. Good luck.

Satelittle A75-S229 shut off

This is a oh-so-common problem for the Satelite A70/75 and it usually is caused by one of two things. If you google "Toshiba Satelite heatsink overheating" and/or "Toshiba Satelite DC plug" you will get a very extensive list of options to repair the problem.
This should take care of the problem and if it doesn't please let me know - it will mean I have something new to look forward to!

System board

I hate to say your getting scammed but...........

First. Price for service is unreasonable.

Second, Slow boot=new mobo? I am very sceptical about that diagnosis.

A few questions if I may.
Are there more than 6 icons in your system tray?(lower right corner)
Are there any programs in the startup folder? Start/allprograms/startup.
Have you de-fragged the comp in a while?

After that, consider this. Can you get a newer laptop for 700 bucks? OK, not as nice as yours. Isn't it still under warranty?
