Toshiba Satellite L15-S104, Model PSL10U-01X02F--A COMPLETE LEMON!

2-14-08
I purchased a Toshiba laptop in May 2005 at Best Buy in Montclair, California and all was good for a short time. Less than a year later I began to have so many problems. I took laptop to Best Buy Geek Squad and the hard drive had to be replaced! I had an extended warranty, so not any cost to me. I continued to have problems with the laptop and in took my laptop back to the Geek Squad in January 2008 and was told the laptop needed a motherboard at the cost of over $600! The warranty had ended.
I have called Toshiba apx 4 times and finally given to a case manager and left on hold each time from 10 to 17 minutes! I have left messages and not anyone has returned my call. I have requested that my laptop be replaced.

    We bought this notebook in May 2005, we have had alot of problems with it. The main one being that sometimes while plugged in to the charger, it would not charge without messing around a bunch with the plug where the adapter plugs into computer. Finally it would not charge at all. I bought a new charger and we continued to have the same problem. Took it to a computer shop and spend over $250 to get the problem took care of supposedly. but a couple months after we got it back, it quit charging again. I was told by a friend that he believes there was a recall on this computer and they replace the whole plug combination on the laptom and on the adaptor. I don't know, haven't talked to toshiba yet but plan on calling them to ask about this.

Christine.

Go back to best buy. the closest one to you. and see about yoru exteneded warranty. Toshiba dont deal with the extended warrentys.A 3rd party company is looking after it for you (best buy) i guess geek squad.. If the warrenty is out and you gotta pay 600 dollors to replace your computer motherboard. all depending on what you use it for an entry level laptop is close to 600 dollors great for web browseing and office use school, some games.

Hi Welcome to FixYa! You dont have to worry. You could buy a retail copy of Windows XP from a computer store.
Then, if its with the drivers for your computer that you are worrying about, you could refer to the link below so that you could download the appropriate drivers for it: http://tinyurl.com/L15-S104

Hope this would be a big help!

Why!!!


A line from top to bottom or side to side is a dead or failed pixel sensor. There are hundreds of pixel sensors at the edges of the screen, when one fails it causes a line, the line can be red, blue, white, or black. Unfortunately, there is no way of repairing the line, other that replacing the screen.

CMOS or RTC battery for this laptop : can it be replaced


Hi AshishB, Yes, Toshiba does refer to the CMOS battery in their literature as the real time clock battery. Your retailer is half right, the battery is on the motherboard but its attached via a connector and it can be replaced. Here are links to a couple of venders that sell the RTC battery for your laptop: - Http://www.sparepartswarehouse.com/Toshiba,Satellite,L15-S104,Laptop,Batteries-Backup-RTC.aspx - http://cgi.ebay.com/Toshiba-Laptop-motherboard-battery-cmos-L15-S104_W0QQitemZ170060189842QQihZ007QQcategoryZ3666QQrdZ1QQssPageNameZWD1VQQcmdZViewItem Let us know if you have any other questions and please don?t forget to rate the posting.
