Dear ALEX5555,

If you have warranty for your Toshiba, try to get replacement.

Solder? Yes and No.

Yes: You would have to order a specific chip from a third party manufacturere who deals only with big suppliers and does not sell replacement parts..... you get the picture.

No: Soldering would require a very good technician and the process can be more time consuming and tedious than you want to here. Most techs don't bother. They replace M/Boards.

Suggeston: Take it in for a replacement motherboard with similar at a Laptop repair shop. May only cost $100 or so.

Good luck

I have had the unit for a year and a half and it started running hot and evidently burning out the support chips on the video card. It was repaired by an official Toshiba repair facility. The repair...


On the X305 the video card is actually 3 boards sandwiched together. there are 2 actual video cards plus the SLI control board. I have a feeling that Toshiba was just replacing the failed board and not actually addressing the cause. In your case I would say that either the SLI control board is faulty or there is an active component on the motherboard that is causing an over voltage issue in one of the video cards. In any case you are looking at some pretty serious money to get this issue resolved. I personally would try a reflow on all 3 graphics boards and if that didn't work I would look to replacing the motherboard and the video cards.

Replace rtc battery f15-av201


Your RTC battery is located secured to the motherboard by cable. It can only be reached by the disassembly of the laptop. Below is a link to the service manual for the F10.

Verticle stripes on monitor--Toshiba Qosmio G25-AV513 PC Notebook


Following factors could be causing this problem and solution as well:

1) Cable Cut: check is to see if the cable between the screen and laptop is pinched or cut. Every laptop has this wire that runs through one of the hinges

2) If this problem temporary i mean for some seconds then it could be a short signal cut problem to screen which causes screen distortion

3) Connect an external monitor and restart the laptop. If you see the same strip on the external video, then that is the motherboard or the video card problem in case you have a video card on your laptop apart from integrated graphics chip

I had the same problem, what you need to do is call Pamela Saunders at Toshiba Corporate in Irving, CA and she will get it repaired for you at no cost to you regardless of warranty. This is a bad batch of computers.

The Phone Number is: 800-457-7777 or 949-462-6000

Qosmio F10 graphics card failure


If you're in the UK you have the law on your side: the Sale of Goods Act protects consumers by requiring goods to be "of merchantable quality". The notorious failure rate of the graphics card on the Toshiba F10 series suggests that this model is faulty by manufacture (have a look on the Toshiba support forums for a few examples in case you need to contact your local Trading Standards Office for support when dealing with Toshiba).

What this means in practice is the machine as sold is not fit for purpose. Don't be fobbed off by "warranty" nonsense either: it is reasonable to expect an expensive laptop to work for seven or eight years, not a mere 12 months. Again, consumer law is on your side. In the first instance your contract is with the retailer, so avoid going direct to Toshiba for as long as you possibly can. Pursue the retailer for a replacement, insisting on your right to be supplied with goods of merchantable quality.

When the original graphics card on the F10 fails, it is replaced by Toshiba service agents with a new motherboard with an integrated Go6600 video card. This puts an extra burden on the battery, reducing its life by 20-25%, so you might push for a replacement battery as well.
