Toshiba stellite 1905 S301

Hi there,
I sincerely hope one can help me with this one!
about 6 months ago, I had a hard drive failure on my toshiba.
I removed the hard drive and left the notebook opened upside down and it stayed this way for a few months; I really did not bother as I was using a second notebook.
Now I have bought a new hard drive that i want to use with the toshiba and I come across another problem which is that when I power up the notebook, there is activity everywhere but the screen which remain pitch dark and does not even flick.
Can you please give a clue as to what this might be?
Thanks in advance for your help!

Sounds to me as if you disconnected some cable either indirectly or directly leading to your screen. First of all, NEVER leave computer parts lying around to get dust in them. Second, make sure all of your cables are connected, jiggle everything around a little(not too hard!) and see if it works then. And you say that the screen doesn't work as if you haven't put the hard drive in just yet. Have you or haven't you? 'Cause it certainly won't work if the hard drive isn't in yet...

Where can i purchase a MPC13A-20/R 802.11b card for my Toshiba Satellite 1905-S301?


This is the only card that works in the mini-PCI slot in the 1905 series. eBay would be your best bet. You can look under "Toshiba 1905 wireless card" but ... make sure it's an Agere card, as most sellers are selling Intel, Broadcom, Atheros.... and none of them will work.

Please try changing the HDD. If same thing happens the problem may be with ur O/s Cd or the Mother board
Please let me know this is used machine or New one. If new one please take a different O/S cd and install it.

If you are installing XP and your HDD is SATA then you need sata drivers.
