Question about Toshiba Satellite A105 Notebook

1 Answer

A105-S4164 I am out of town and don't have the manual to my computer. My brother in law put the photo card from his Sony Cybershot into the wrong slot (port)? on the computer. He inserted it in the one immediately below and to the left of the silver onthe top of the handrest below the drive and operational lights. How can we get it out or should we even try? What goes there anyway and where do we hook the computer and camera together to download photos into my computer??HELP!!! I waited a long time for a good computer and I hope we haven't messed anything up. Lost in S.C.

    Even the smallest needle nosed pliers would not open in this small of an area. We tried tweezers and this didn't work. Could you tell me where to get a pair of pliers this small?

    Thanks for your information. I have spoken to Toshiba and the card should push in and click and double click (spring loaded I guess to remove the memory card). They will call me or email me by morning to tell me an authorized repair facility to take the computer to since it is still under warranty.

    Thanks again for trying to help me. We wouldn't have dared attempted to take the computer apart. All we did was to try with small tweezers very flat out of a Swiss Army knife to get hold of the card. I think we will leave it up to the factory reps. that way if there is a problem the warranty will cover it for me.

To get the card out use a pair of needle nose plyers. Try not to smash the card. With the notebook opened & you facing it. Turn the notebook so your looking at the left side there is an iLink port to hook up your camra. I'll make this easer. Click the link below. Its a video tour of your notebook. This will help you see what is what.

    If you couldn't reach the card with a pair of tweezers than I doubt that the card can be removed without doing some disassembling. It would be better to wait & have it serviced by a pro who will be able to see just what is taking place so as not to damage the notebook or the card.

    If anyone opends the notebook, (it's new) that can void the warranty.

Press and hold down the Fn key and then press F11 function key - also the LED that indicates the number lock has been enable will then switch off.

It does not have a bluetooth build it. However there is a device you can buy that goes into your computer's usb drive. They cost from 10 to 30 dollars in stores (see link below). It is a good computer though, I have a higher end satellite laptop and I love it.

Laptop won't boot CD with HDD installed.

If it hangs with the new hard drive installed and doesn't without it hooked up then definitely the new hard drive is bad. Return it and get another one.

Well first off is do you hear any sounds indicating its been detected?if not its possible the card reader may need a driver update, which you can do by going to the device manager and locating the removable media device click on it and select update. after that it may work, also check for lights near the card reader slot. (btw its also possible to connect your camera via usb camera try it first its easier)
