Re: Need new / 2nd hand Toshiba satellite laptop...
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.

To bypass the BIOS password for your laptop press and hold Left Shift key and check if password is bypassed. If it is not then you would need to reset it. To reset the BIOS password you would need to remove the RTC battery on the motherboard and try and restart the laptop 2-3 times. With the laptop turned offf follow these steps--
Open Memory Cover
Remove Black plastic insulation
Locate & Short CMOS CLR1 for 15 Seconds
Hope this helps... If it does please do not forget to accept the solution or post back for assistance.
Just try and check the available, open slots on the system's motherboard, whether it is AGP slot or PCI slot, then buy a VGA card of that type, making sure that you check the VGA Memory of the one you are buying (32M and Above should be ok for you depending on what type of applications you run on the system), then insert this VGA card into available slot, then when you power up your system, go to the system setup (BIOS) and select the type of graphic card you are using as well as its memory size. Check that you also select that the system should not use the On-Board graphics under the peripherals option in the BIOS setup also. Hope it helps. Goodluck!
yes unfortunately when you flash the bios it is physically erasing the cmos chip and then re-imaging the new bios on it..the cmos chip is attached to the motherboard..you can get *** removed and replaced but its a lot cheaper and easier just to by a new motherboard
http://driverscollection.com/?H=Satellite%20L100%20(PSLA0)&By=Toshiba here are your drivers I too had a problem locating these drivers.Paste this web adress to your browser and it will show all your drivers for your laptop including your wireless drivers. Thanks kawuna
There should be a wireless button or switch on the perimeter of the laptop. Either this or a function key on your keyboard that you need to depress while clicking another key that has a wireless picture icon on it.
If you hit the right switch you should get some kind of notification either on the display or with the enabling of a new wireless light on the laptop.
