Question about Toshiba Satellite A105 Notebook

1 Answer

Toshiba A105 dispay

I have an 18 months old A105 Toshiba laptop who is lately giving me a hard time. After 20 minutes of using it and working fine, the display is shaking at first, then turning into a black screen with horrizontal grey lines....forcing me to just shut it down. If I let it cool for about an hour I can get it to work for about the same time (10-20 mins) until it's doing it again.

Does anybody have an idea of what could be the problem?
Thanks,
Anna

This is usually a sign that the LCD is going to die and needs replaced but it could just be loose.

If you are comfortable with computers and have some knowledge you could try taking the face plate off of the monitor and making sure the connection plugged into the back of the LCD is securely fastened.

The laptop could also be overheating. Try setting it on a table and using it with nothing covering up the vent holes. see if that helps.

Your hard drive is probably dead.However there are stillhopes for hard drive datarecovery.
Put the hard drive in a plastic bag to be compatible for the freezer. Freezingsometimes works to revive a dying hard drive, at least for a shorttime(Probable just about 20 minutes), but be sure that the bag is sealedtightly so that condensation and ice crystals don't form. Put it in yourfreezer for 24 hours that will do the trick. While it's still cold, plug itinto your computer.And you may be able to view it in 'my computer'. And you mayact quickly,because you may only have 20 minutes to recover your data off itand after that the hard drive is completely dead.
If it fails, you will have to go to a recovery office where supply datarecovery service but let's hope not because it will cost you a lot of money andwhether they can recover data is not guaranteed.
Here is a tutorial to guide you how torecover hard drive data.

Internet only works for 20 minutes after restart.


Yep. Guessing the router is older. They don't last long. Modems live forever but routers average 6-18 months. Other things are funny about this. Your router works on 2.4 ghz. Cordless phone and microwaves do too. if you have a cordless base close to the router it can knock it offline. If your router is old get a new one. MAKE SURE IT IS AN "N" SERIES AND NOT A "G" SERIES

Toshiba A105 S2719 screen problem


Is this behavior irrespective of power condition of the laptop, ie both ac and battery?
Please see bios bulletins for your system here. Sometimes a bios update can correct this kind of problem...
However, also note this article.
In the probable event that none of that works, it's probably your inverter or backlight (EL) panel, both of which can be replaced. The white lines are not a good sign. See other thread discussions of same here and here.
Google "diagnose laptop monitor failure" for more, or see this repair guide.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

System time clock looses time


hello
here is a guide to disassemble the laptop
http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba-Satellite-A105/remove-motherboard-1.htm
Some motherboards have the battery soldered on ,i am not sure if yours is or not ,the batteries usually look like watch batteries.
you could always get a quote from an authorised toshiba support agent if you are uncomfortable opening the laptop.

The information on the hard drive will not be lost as it is saved on the hard drive itself.

Hi,
The problem with the LCD screen , if the external display is working fine. The LCD needs a replacement. The same thing happened on my Dell and we had to replace the Lcd. The same can occur because the LCD cable gets damaged when you open or close the LCD

maybe the shop formatted the hard drive including the recovery partition where all the files should be .so your disc cant find it .
if you can boot up into safe mode then use windows restore function to restore to an earlier time,if not you may have to get a set of recovery discs from toshiba

good luck
