Question about Toshiba Satellite A105 Notebook

1 Answer

Won't maintain Internet connection

My Satellite A105 S4104 can't seem to maintain an Internet connection more than a few minutes. Once it drops, the only way to reestablish it is to reboot. It does this under XP Media, XP Pro SP2, XP Pro SP3 beta, and under Vista Ultimate. I've tried reinstalling the operating system. I've swapped out drives (tried 3 different ones) and installed a clean OS. I've swapped out memory cards. Still does it. Any thoughts?

    Oh, I should've mentioned that I've also tried 3 different modems with the same results. I don't have this problem with other PCs, so I'm sure it's not the modem or cable. I'm connecting via USB directly from the modem.

Generally the modem connections have time setting. Check if there is anything on the settings.

Another possibility it might your modem doing that. I have seen that happening on a PC.

I think you have to give a little bit more details about too to give a better opinion.

How to tell if a105-s4074 satellite battery is bad


If thelaptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out.Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles andwill lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR Thebattery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the batterydrops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to anunacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

I lost the main password to our computer. how would I fix this?


look on the net for a program called "Active password Changer". look for version 3. Burn the program to a cd. go into your bios and make the cd drive the 1st bootable drive. The progam is very easy to follow. When it finds the passwords tell it to remove them. Restart the laptop and it wont ask for any passwords. Just make a new one in the usual way and dont forget it!!!

Hi there, try to perform system restore on your computer. Click on start menu then select all programs then click accessories then click system tools then click system restore.

My computer says its connect to my wireless network yet I can't access the internet!


Try resetting your router first off. Then repair your connection by right-clicking on the connection. You may have a sketchy router or one that could benefit from a firmware upgrade. I would get into the router's homepage and check the settings for your connection, then make sure your getting IP addresses and DNS addresses from your ISP.

Issue


The computer models listed above may display a "Password =" prompt when the computer is turned on, even though no power-on password has been set. If this happens, there is no password that will satisfy the password request. If the computer is turned off and back on again, it is very likely that the same password prompt will appear. The computer will be unusable until this problem is fixed.

If the problem has not happened yet, you can prevent it from happening in the future by upgrading the BIOS to the newest version.

The occurrence of this problem on any particular computer is unpredictable -- it may never happen, but it could happen any time that the computer is turned on. If this problem does occur, it will be necessary to send the computer to a Toshiba Authorized Service Provider, who will fix the problem at no charge to you.



Resolution


If this problem has not yet occurred on your computer, then click the following link to download and install BIOS version 1.40. This BIOS displays a power-on password prompt only when a power-on password has actually been set via the BIOS Setup program.

You may also browse for a newer version of the computer's BIOS at pcsupport.toshiba.com.

For more help, see Support Bulletin 98081213 Obtaining downloads and support docs from the Toshiba Support website.

If the problem has already occurred on your computer, then please make arrangements with a Toshiba Authorized Service Provider to have this problem fixed at no charge. To locate a Toshiba Authorized Service Provider (ASP), please visit Toshiba's Global ASP Locator at http://pcrepair.toshiba.com

BTW, I've heard that this only happens when you boot up on battery power.

Maybe you can confirm this...
