Re: toshiba A105 laptop

Hi Harry! Did you remove the ram? Sounds like it is either not compatible. Good luck!

Is windows 7 compatable on a toshiba laptop a105-s171

From what I understand, windows 7 requires atleast 1 gb of ram to run properly, judging by your standard system specs you have 512 mb of ram. Unless you have added some ram or plan to add some to your system then no I dont believe you will be able to upgrade and run windows 7 efficiently.

I have toshiba satellite a105 i wanted to know if it have wireless internert or do i need a verizon wireless chip

The Toshiba A105 comes with a wireless card. On the bottom of the laptop there is a door toward the front middle and behind that door you can see a wireless card that has the black and white wires going to it.

There is also a on/off switch that enables the wireless card as well, its either on the left or right hand side of the laptop.

Just make sure the switch is turned on and go into the device manager and underneath where it says network adapters, you should see the wireless card listed in there.

The touchpad mouse on my toshiba salellite does not function even though it shows it working properly when you go into the touchpad icon. I have an external wireless mouse (usb) hooked up that works fine...

The touchpad is most probably defective. If you have dropped your laptop the touchpad cable could have get out from its connector on the mainboard. You can get a new touchpad/palmrest on ebay. You have to remove your touchpad/palmrest as shown in the link below, steps 17 to 19 :

Identify the part number of your touchpad/palmrest. Search on : Toshiba Satelitte A105 palmrest. Buy the one with the same part numer as yours.

...or have your laptop repaired by a professional.

No matter what, backup your data now.

Then try running a hard disk scan to check for bad sectors. Some software apps will actually block off the bad sectors and prevent your system from trying to use them again.

However, I suspect that the issue is actually a memory or video card problem. Try installing memtest86 ( and running on your system.

Some laptops have a button to "disable" the wireless adapter.
Click Control Panel
Click Classic View
Click Network Connections
Check that the wireless adapter is "enabled".
Right-mouse-button click on the icon for the wireless adapter,
and then click "repair".

Won't power on

Hi gdpreston1,
According to Toshiba all you need is a bios upgrade.
In very rare cases, the battery pack of your PC may stop accepting a charge, i.e., the battery stops working & no longer supplies power to the computer. To minimize the risk of ever experiencing this problem. Toshiba strongly recommends that you download and install the latest BIOS by clicking this link below.
ACPI Flash BIOS version 5.90 for Tecra A7/Satellite A105 (Intel) (PTA70U).
File: ta7i0v59.exe
From what you posted you "are" experiencing the above.
Much better than buying a part!
If you need anything else just post back & we'll go from there.
please vote...
