Help With Disassembly

I am in the process of pulling open my Toshiba Satellite A65 to clean it because of a build up of dust. I have all the screws out but (when flipped upside down) the back right corner isn't lifting and i don't want to break it. Will I ruin anything by pulling it apart?

You'll probably only break/crack the case on the corner that is hanging you up, but it could break more if something is hung up on a component or the MotherBoard itself. I would suggest trying to pry (with a very small flat screw driver) that corner apart carefully by applying pressure between the pieces of the case at and close to the corner in question see if it doesn't pop apart without breaking anything.
You must be positive that all attaching screws have been removed (their locations should be indicated my arrows on the case, you will sometimes find one under a removable cover (such as for RAM, Wireless Card, etc...) or a removable part such as an optical drive, the battery, or even under the keyboard on the top side (check everything again, just to be sure).
Good luck.

I want to replace the hard drive in my toshiba satellite A65-S1762


Easy. Your HDD is located in front of the battery pack - to the side. The door is held in by one screw, and the HDD is held to a bracket by 2 screws. Any 2.5", 9.5mm height ATA IDE drives will do. Make sure you don't lose the door, bracket, and screws.

Toshiba A65-S1062 - This laptop overheats and shuts down.


I bet that you had your laptop on all the time.
Your heat sink is saturated with dust and grit.
you may have to open up the unit and use a can of dust remover to clean the fins on the heat sink out. it is causing your CPU to shut down bucause it is becoming overheated.
Happy Fixing =)

Satellite a65 problem with atheros wireless driver after XP Pro SP2 installed


Hi,

Perhaps what is required is to install the drivers separately and use those from the manufacturer, Toshiba. Incidentally, there are 18 versions of a Satellite A65, which one is yours pls? (Versions start from S1062...S1762).

Pls start here and select Portables, Satellite, and A65 + Version, then click on "Show Results" button.

Alternately, you may want to jumpstart and try this for the RTL8139 and/or this for the Atheros WiFi. Both are for Windows XP.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
