Mini-PCI WIFI in Satellite 5205-S703

I have this crazy problem with my WIFI adapter. Its Brand New agere Mini-PCI PA3171U-1MPC Its the same model that My Laptop came with. The Problem is when I install it into the Mini-PCI slot My Laptop Will not Boot, Post Or anything. The Only thing That happens Is the power light turns on.. And with this model of laptop the only option i have for going through bios settings and that is done through Toshiba HW Utility In Windows. And there aren't many options in there for anything. I have tried almost everything. including using a 3rd party program to clear my cmos.. Help would be greatly appreciated..

Check out if you are inserting it properly into its slot. That that can be one reason.

another thing you can do try is to try to put in after you have already started the computer and you in windows.

Can i use any charger on s505


The Toshiba Satellite 5205 series of Notebook PC, and the S505 series model; uses an AC adapter (Charger) that produces 15 Volts DC.

http://www.sparepartswarehouse.com/Toshiba,Satellite,5205,PS520U-31P1RV,Laptop,AC-Adapters.aspx

You will see AC adapters sold that show 15 to 24 Volts. (DC)

http://www.duracelldirect.com/toshiba_satellite-5205-s505_ac-adapters_laptop_ac-b20h.aspx

This is because the AC adapter (Charger) has PFC.
Power Factor Correction,

http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/Everything-You-Need-to-Know-About-Power-Supplies/181/2

Also I see it is just a two pin AC adapter plug, to laptop.
Center hole is Positive, outer metal cylindrical metal shell is Negative.

Go for 75 Watts or higher though, and not a 65 Watt model.

[ On the case of the AC adapter;
Input: 100 ~ 240 VAC 50-60Hz

Means it can use from 100 to 240 Volts AC, and either 50 or 60 Hertz.

Output: 15VDC 6A

Means 15 Volts DC at 6 Amp's. (Amperes)

Watch the outside dimension of the cylindrical part, and the center hole dimension. Outside cylinder may be correct, but center hole may be too small. Or vice-versa.

Where can i purchase a MPC13A-20/R 802.11b card for my Toshiba Satellite 1905-S301?


This is the only card that works in the mini-PCI slot in the 1905 series. eBay would be your best bet. You can look under "Toshiba 1905 wireless card" but ... make sure it's an Agere card, as most sellers are selling Intel, Broadcom, Atheros.... and none of them will work.

I count boot or start its asking for password i try removing battry it dosent work Resetting the bios password for Toshiba Laptop satellite 5205-s703 pls help me ..


you have 2 options, and most likely either will require a fee payment.
Either contact Toshiba Tech Support or there are companies on the internet that will provide master passwords for a fee (I have never dealt with them, but seen them advertised)
Portable computer passwords are stored in Non-Volitile ram and cannot be manually bypassed.

Toshiba satellite 5005-S504 boots over and over and over non stop


It sounds like the hard drive is dying. I had a computer do the same thing and it turned out to be the hard drive. You should still be able to access the bios though. Try hittind either delete or F1 as soon as your toshiba screen appears.

Display has gone bad with fine vertical pink lines


Connect an external monitor to your laptop, if you get a clear image on this monitor the the video card in the laptop is OK.

The fault could be a defective inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or a faulty CCFL lamp. Most likely a faulty CCFL lamp.

Defective CCFL backlight may has the following symptom:
  • Screen flashs on red/pink and off.
  • Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal.
  • Picture flickering with dim display.
  • Picture flickering on and off.
All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) as reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replacing the CCFL lamp

The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

Mini PCI WIFI Kepps sytem from booting


Ok, since you posted that it's the same model that your laptop came with, I will assume that the original had a problem and you are replacing it. If that's true, your problem may not have been with the adapter or the newly installed PCI Mini WiFi adapter is defective (this happens more often than one would think). Try another adapter if you can.
Good luck.
