If you move your laptop screen to were it works sometimes and doest work other, it sounds like it could have a loose connection in the ribbon cable. Most laptop lcd screens are connected to the main board through a brown looking ribbon cable. if this cable has become loosened, then yes it can be a DIY type job.

if you attempt to take the laptop apart, i sugguest you keep a record of what type screws go where.

Good luck!

We have a Toshiba Satellite lap top. It was working about an hour ago, when we down loaded a BIOS upgrade from 1.4 to 1.5. After the down load and reboot the lap top now has a black screen with no wording....


BIOS updates sometimes cause the motherboard to revert to its default configuration. I recommend that you go into the BIOS setup and examine the Boot Devices and Boot Order to make sure that your hard drive is selected as the first boot device.

Good luck!

How do i change the cmos battery a toshiba a215s7422


The cmos battery used on the A215 is the soldered type. It is a small battery soldered in a small bracket on the motherboard. You have to disassemble the laptop down to the bottom case. Once you have removed the palmrest you will see the battery in its holder in the middle of the motherboard. The solder has to be softened to remove the battery and another soldered in its place. Below is a link to the picture of the motherboard with the battery in the moddle of the board.

Wheres the ram?


RAM modules must be installed in special locations on the motherboard called Sockets. These memory sockets are what hold the RAM module in place and can range from 1 to 16 or more. Banks consist of a group of 1 or more sockets. A system can have 1 or more of these banks of sockets. If a system has more than 1 socket in a bank, a Kit must be purchased for that bank. A kit is simply more than one, usually 2 or 4, like RAM modules. All sockets in a bank must be filled. Typically you will see 2x512MB or 2x256MB signifying you get 2 units of 512MB RAM modules or 2 units of 256MB RAM modules, respectively.
The Toshiba Satellite A40-S270 has 2 bank(s) which have 1 socket(s) in each bank for a total of 2 memory socket(s). This means the Satellite A40-S270 can support up to 2 individual RAM modules.
Below is a visual representation of the memory bank(s) and socket(s) configuration for the Toshiba Satellite A40-S270.
socket_1.gifsocket_1.gif This graphical representation above details what the memory configuration would look like with the maximum memory installed and does not necessarily model your system memory configuration. This graphical representation is not drawn to scale and should only be used as a general reference. Please consult your system’s user manual for your actual memory configuration.

Well my toshiba satellite u405-s2820 turns on but the screen is just black... what I'm I to do??


Firstly unplug everything from the laptop (even the power) and remove the battery, hold the power button down for 10secs then plug the power back in only, see what happens...

If nothings changed...
Try and plug a normal monitor into the VGA port and turn the laptop on;
you will get the toshiba POST screen if the graphics card still works (then the actual screen is at fault)
if you dont then the graphics card is at fault..


[Just a thought... does the laptop bleep when you first turn it on?]

Let me know how you get on...

I have satellite broad band on the host computer with a lap top via belkin.how do I connect the two computers together as a net work sharing printer internet etc?


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

With the indulgence of jmichelsen4, two ways:
  • a router if the satellite modem uses Ethernet port;
  • a hub or crossover cable if the satellite modem uses USB port on the host computer.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Reboot. I assume you're talking about Windows Updates. They get corrupt sometimes. Reboot, run the updates again and if they don't work research the error message on Google.

I have two Toshiba lap tops, I had the same problems which you have, tell you the truth, I took them to Bevely Hills factory warranty shop changed the mother board and then after eight months, I had some other problems, total five times in the repaire shop and finally passed the warranty. It is totally gone.
