Question about Toshiba Satellite P25-S5263 Notebook

1 Answer

System board Hello and thank you for your input. I own a Toshiba Satellite P25-S256 series lap top. My OS stars really slow, it takes about 20 for the comp to boot and load all appications. I took it for an evaluations and I was told it was the systems board or to my knowledge the same as the mother board. I was also told that they had to change the entire board. This will coast me $700 according to them. I was wondering how much is a systems board? how hard is it to install it? novice here !!! would i be better of letting them do it?

Re: 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?

I forget a bios password at laptop toshiba satellite 2430

I know some methods to reset bios password.

1. The best and easiest method: Close OS and shut down the electricity power of computer. Open your computer box, take out the cmos battery from the mainboard. Then the bios password will be reset to blank. Put it back after a few minutes.

2. Follow some tutorials. For example the tutorials:
Reset Toshiba Satellite BIOS Password

3. Use the bios password recovery tool , but that is not free!

So I would suggest you the 1st method. Hope it helps.

No appear in my deskop proprieti output monitor because missing the,, ialmnt5.sys driver'' Please help me !Thank you so much ! I have one lap top Toshiba Satellite M55-S135


The ialmnt5.sys file is a driver file for video cards. The best solution in this case is to reinstall the video driver.

Go to the manufacturer's support website to download the latest drivers for your device.

Here is the link for your laptop drivers : Satellite M55-S135 drivers.

Make sure to select the correct OS version to get compatible and working drivers.

Hope this helps.

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.

Hello, I am trying to fix some of the non working laptops at my Agency. One of them is a Toshiba Satellite a70-s256. At start up, it sounds like the computer is firing up but there is a blank screen.

Its possible that you have a faulty monitor. To isolate or confirm that its the screen, get a VGA cable and plug it into a stand alone monitor. If you see anything then it must be the laptops wiring to the screen or the screen itself.

Toshiba Satellite a70-s256 fan issues

Instead, turn the computer off.
Disconnect the AC power.
Remove the battery.
Purchase a can of compressed-air.
Give your computer a "blow-job", to remove all the dust that has accumulated inside your computer.
The dust has been acting as "insulation", forcing the fans to run faster, and with more noise.

Cooler computer -> quieter computer.

Why will my lap top not turn on

There's a tiny pin at the base of the screen, on the laptop. Use canned air to blow it out, clicking in. Press it in and let it release quickly. The tiniest speck of dirt will prevent the switch from making contact.
