Try right clicking my computer and choosing manage. Look in device manager and list all the parts which have an X by them. You can right click them and choose update driver. You should work through the wizard and it will find them itself. when the driver is correct it will no longer have the red X by it. Do each one in turn. An alternative is to go to Toshiba Website on their support/drivers/downloads section and put in your model number. You will need to look for drivers for your particular operating system and download them. You wont be able to use drivers which are not for your system and which are not for your operating system. Toshiba very often put a folder on your C drive called something like toshiba or drivers and there are often subfolders in there with drivers in it. You should really take it back to the people who replaced your motherboard as they have not finished the job.

My toshiba PSAgou laptop won't turn on


That is a common problem with the Toshiba. The center pin tends to get broken off. I have had to repair them by either installing a new mother board, or removing the mother boars and soldering in a new power port.

Vertical lines on the screen, 3 of them, 2 of them left side 1st is green approx. .25 in from the edge, 2nd yellow approx. .5 in from the left, 3rd magenta about 4 in. from the left, all go full length top...


Hi,

This could possibly ne because of the following reasons:

Check if there are any things around that can create a magnetic field,

Also check for the RAM on the laptop. There could be few bad sectors in it which has caused the same.

It could probably tell that either the screen is becomming defective or your video/graphic card is overheating or starting to die/fail.

Please let me know if the provided information has been helpful.

Dell laptop wont run with power cord and wont charge battery


could be the A/C connector on the mother board this would have to be replaced by a TECH if your cord is good and you have voltage coming out of the end of the cord that plugs in to the laptop then your A/C connector on the mother bord is bad and its a common problem this happens with use, if the laptop is new then return it if not it could cost $120.00 to fix. GOOD LUCK

Toshiba Tecra M3 Laptop keeps freezing and shutting down, Can't even do Fresh Install on New Hard Disk Without Freezing, Have Replaced CPU Heatsink Compound.


What made you suspect the compund? You're probably right though. The fan has died or is too slow. The CPU and the video chip are what the fan is protecting. It might require a new CPU chip and fan. If it's the video chip, then a new mother board is in your future.

Good Luck

Toshiba A200 1Ai memory slot not working


new board, the actual ram slot is toast, you can get a replacement board from Toshiba themselves but at a retarded price, at this point cheapest thing to do would be to just put in one 2 gig stick in the working slot so at least you have 2 gigs and forget about the other one (replacement mother-board for your machine is roughly 200 bucks) i checked it at work (future-shop)

System board


I hate to say your getting scammed but...........

First. Price for service is unreasonable.

Second, Slow boot=new mobo? I am very sceptical about that diagnosis.

A few questions if I may.
Are there more than 6 icons in your system tray?(lower right corner)
Are there any programs in the startup folder? Start/allprograms/startup.
Have you de-fragged the comp in a while?

After that, consider this. Can you get a newer laptop for 700 bucks? OK, not as nice as yours. Isn't it still under warranty?
