Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

I have a Toshiba P205 laptop and have been running external Bose speakers due, primarily, to the fact that I keep the top closed and the Harmon's are muffled. My daughter recently unplugged the speakers and used them on her iPOD and not I'm unable to get the Toshiba to recognize them -- it defaults to the internal speakers. Any recommendations, please?

Can you check the speakers with anything else, to determine if they still work?

Hi there, I have a toshiba satellite M60-BK3 Laptop. Is only four years old and from couple of days my LCD display is going on standby mode very fast. I try pressing and releasing that little switch which...


A couple things to try, 1 is boot the system in the safe mode (F8 menu at boot) and see if the LCD turns off there. You can also attach an external monitor and see if the external looses video too.
If the system looses video in the Safe mode and doesn't loose video with an external monitor, then the LCD backlight is likely failing
LCDs run about $100 to $150 on ebay

2 SET OF SPEAKERS WON'T WORK FOR ACER E380


Do these speakers came with the system? If yes then check your manual from the Acer's website ( www.acer.com)
Also what color ports do you have in the back of the Desktop?
I believe you have a green, a Blue and a pink port, the Green is for outgoing sound, the Blue is for incoming sound, like a tape player recorder or a External CD player to get sound to your PC, and the PIN is the Microphone.

I have a compaq computer and two external speakers which quit working. where do the wires for the speakers atach


Normally the lead which has a plug the same as a headphones plug goes into the green socket on the back or sometimes the front of the PC. The speakers should then already be joined together or have a lead that plugs one into the other.

YOU NEED TO GET INTO THE C-MODE SETUP TO DELETE ANY PASSWORD AND USER NAME. go to www.toshiba.com look for the support and go there. the fee they charge may be a whole lot less that bringing it to a shop.

BUT--this is a tricky issue..you need to contact toshiba as to the keys to get into C-Mode setup to do this.

the message referes to the fact that a removable drive (CD ) or ( mass storage device) was taken out before the computer could close out that program properly. It is looking for it to close it right.

Ok... first off... the Harmon/Kardon isn't the model for the Laptop.... it's the type of speakers you have... Great sound for a laptop... but still that refers to the speakers... people have problems with these things... I had to trouble shoot this all the time at my high school... Try going into the display properties and trying to add it as another monitor... (this may even work better for you then having to use the one screen)...

I just bought a docking station for my Dell laptop computer. How do I hook it up so I can keep the top closed and use my desk top monitor? I want to be able to turn on the laptop without opening the lid.


Well.. you'd still have to open the lid to turn it on, right? (because you didn't mention the model of your laptop, I don't know where the power button actually *is*)
You want to close it while it's on, without it hibernating or going to sleep...

Go to your control panel, then into power or power management (depending on your Windows version, because you didn't mention it)

Then have a look under the "advanced" tab where it asks "when I close the lid of my computer". Set that to "do nothing".

Now when you close the lid, the laptop screen should turn off, but the PC should keep running. I'm not sure if that will still turn your external monitor off though.

I think that is your best solution, other than hacking off the little button that senses when the lid is closed. =-]
