Toshiba Laptop approx 3 years old. It slipped out of the case it was in and fell about 6 inches onto the floor. Since then it will work but only when plugged in. More recently the touchpad has stopped working. I attached a mouse and it works OK. Any suggestions? Have either/both fixed or not? Original cost was $500-600. Thank you!

Re: Toshiba Laptop approx 3 years old. It fell out of
Please handle your PC with care. Since it fell abt 6 in., it must have some connection problem that will still be repeated as soon as it bangs. If it doesn't work in few days from now, check the HDD it may have caused damage because of the fall. Then if you can open any board, unplug connections from outlets then press soldered connections in the motherboard.
Just a pre-caution. But if it persist, see your supplier's technician.

no year, ? no model ,lots of years, lots of model Acura's
the charge lamp glows with the ALT does dead..
and then the battery voltage drops, from 12.6vdc to 12v and lamps
dim , every inch of the way as the battery discharges.
can be lots of causes, not just ALT bad.
1: fuse blown in engine bay
2: bad battery ,
3: battery cables corroded, (big time fail rates)
4: bad alternator ground or its other wires.....
5: fan belt fell off or slips.
6: more if we had year, and model.
My 3-year old 52-inch Toshiba flat panel TV (Model # 52RV53U, Serial # AM409000295) developed a display problem (purchased Aug. 2008, manufactured July 2008). Vertical multicolored lines appeared on the screen just left of center. The band of thin vertical bars is 5.5 inches wide. The lines are about 1/16-inch wide. They are stationary, always exactly in same place. They over-ride any other picture on the screen (no transparency). They are there all time even with no video inputs to the TV after the unit is turned on. See picture #1. The TV works well in every other respect, but, obviously, it is annoying to watch the picture with the color band blocking about 1/6 of the picture.

I already swapped out the TCON board with no improvement and replugged the TCON board cables with no improvement.
Most likely it is the flat panel tab bond failure (panel made by Samsung). Further solution updates will be on my Facebook page.
How old is it ?
I had one that was about 3 years old. Did the same thing - It was the kiss of death.
Took it to the computer shop to fix, would have cost more to fix it than buyiong a new one.
Hope that's not the case with yours - good luck
1.Log into router 2. Verify wireless router name( on the computer) >>> ( on/off) 3.Note router name you are connecting to. 4.. Check the laptop do ipconfig /all to see current IP addresses. 5. Set the laptop up in the router by WEP KEY or MAC address. 6.Note router name you are connecting to. 7. Move the laptop about 20ft away and try to log on to the internet. This is for all routers to set up wirelessly.
It could be 1 of 4 things: 1. One of the ribbon cables has worked itself loose (Simple Fix) 2. One of the assembly boards maybe faulty 3. The driver board which feeds the panel maybe faulty 4. The panel is faulty
The driver board in the UK costs approx £70 and approx £35-70 to fit it if this is the fault.
All other parts are between £80-160 and approx £35-70 to fit it if this is the fault.
The panel will cost approx 50-75% of what the TV was worth when you bought it - "Repair versus Replacement"
Several things could cause this problem. Be sure the battery is charged for one. For two, it could be the power supply. If it is the power supply, you will need to bring it into a shop. If it makes any sound or has any light on, the power supply may not be the problem. Good Luck!
