Hi timlondonuk,

I don't know if you've ever replaced the motherboard in a laptop, but it can be a serious chore - even damaging to the LCD connector and other devices if you're not careful. Oftentimes the cost of a replacement board is 50-75% of the cost of a new laptop, so you might consider that venue.

If you provide a model number we can help you find prices for the board.

Toshiba satellite A200-27R what motherboard do i need?

Try replacing the fan in it the reason a computer usally goes of is due to this. In the bios sometimes the fan gives a fail safe causing the laptop to go off. Couple of questions though did the laptop heat up alot in the past. If it did you might try buying another laptop mother board. If not this is a less costly adventure than replacing the motherboard.

My dvd/cd is not seen by my laptop toshiba satellite 2405-S201

Go into the BIOS and reset it to factory default. If the drive still isn't being seen then you'll need to take the drive out of the laptop and then put it back in and be sure it reseats back into the slot properly.

If the drive still isn't being shown then its either the dvd drive or the motherboard is bad. You won't know until you try another known working drive. If the 2nd drive works then you know its the drive. If the 2nd drive doesn't work then you know its the controller on the motherboard thats bad and the motherboard would have to be replaced.
