The problem there may be your cmos battery or possibly a memory issues. If you just recently added memory, I suggest you find a more compatible one for your laptop.

Somehow, my three-year-old must have locked the keys on our Toshiba Satellite L505D laptop. How do I unlock them? We have a wireless mouse for it, which I can still use.


Don't blame your daughter ;) some Toshiba laptops have this keyboard problem. seems the easiest remedy is;
  • Shut down.
  • Remove the battery and the AC power.
  • Wait for 5 - 10 minutes or hold the power button depressed for about ten seconds.
  • Put the battery and power back.
  • Turn on the computer.
I believe there is an updated driver for the keyboard you can download from the Toshiba support website that may may prevent this from recurring.

Hope this helps ;)

Toshiba satellite a40-s270 won't turn on


Either the power supply is not working or the battery has failed and will not hold a charge. If the laptop is 3 or more years old, the battery is the likely suspect.

My toshiba laptop wont stay on, wheneve I turn it on it automatically powers off


I have the solution for the non booting Toshiba that I wrote almost a year ago. This tutorial (written and pics from the repair of my m35) is applicable to laptops that shut down without any warning, laptops that turn on only sometimes, and laptops that simply refuse to turn on (LEDs blink, fan spins up for a second and then everything just goes dead). So if your laptop does not turn on, it goes completely dead within a few minutes after bootup, here's the link to the tutorial. The repair takes about an hour, there's no need of replacing any parts, reinstalling any software or any other thing. The only investment in repairing your laptop with this tutorial is your time. Basically, you can repair your laptop within the hour, without spending any money for any parts or software.

I have a 3 year old Toshiba Tecra M4 Tablet Laptop, and my colors are inverted, anything that should come up black, comes up red. Text is okay, but images just don't look right


It would be oen of three things... in order of cost;

1. LCD Invertor has gone bad
2. SCREEN has gone bad
3. Motherboard has gone bad

In either of the three it would most likely take a toshiba tech to pinpoint exactly the problem and do the repair. Although if you are handy enough you can get the parts and repair it yourself.

Laptop monitor goes black


If you're working on the computer when that happens, it's not probably a power setting. Try to update your BIOS to the most current version at the toshiba support website (support.toshiba.com) & see what happens. Fixes the issue most of the time

I hope this helps.
