My Toshiba Satellite laptop does not fire up at all. Yesterday as I was working the screen blinked a few times and went dead. I can't get it to come back up. Tried connecting to an external monitor but it does not fire up.

Four possibilities come to mind.
1. Your power supply is bad and the battery ran down.
2. Your system board died.
3. You have a bad device plugged into a USB port.
4. Your battery is bad and holding down the AC power.
To troubleshoot, disconnect all external devices, even remove the CD drive if possible. Try to boot.
Next, boot with just the battery.
Next, boot with just the AC supply.
That's about it. If you still have no power at boot, it is the system board.

How to turn on my Toshiba satellite L305D-S5974, YESTERDAY IT WENT DEAD AND NOW I GOT THE CHARGER BUT ALL I SEE IS AN ORANGE LIGHT BLINKING BUT IT STILL STAY OFF NO FAN,NO SCREEN AT ALL, HELP PLZ


Remove the power cord and remove the battery. Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds... no less... Put the battery back in and plug in the power cord. Try to start it.

If it doesn't work, try again without the battery, just the power cord.

If that doesn't work neither, remove the power cord, and leave it without the battery or power for a couple hours. 3 minimum.

Put everything back and try to start it up again.

Good luck.

My toshiba laptop wont stay on, wheneve I turn it on it automatically powers off


I have the solution for the non booting Toshiba that I wrote almost a year ago. This tutorial (written and pics from the repair of my m35) is applicable to laptops that shut down without any warning, laptops that turn on only sometimes, and laptops that simply refuse to turn on (LEDs blink, fan spins up for a second and then everything just goes dead). So if your laptop does not turn on, it goes completely dead within a few minutes after bootup, here's the link to the tutorial. The repair takes about an hour, there's no need of replacing any parts, reinstalling any software or any other thing. The only investment in repairing your laptop with this tutorial is your time. Basically, you can repair your laptop within the hour, without spending any money for any parts or software.

Toshiba Satellite Laptop refuses to allow Dual Monitors


I have an A105 set up on dual screens, and it works great. As I recall, you have to do the dual screen setup in the control panel, display, settings.

Problem with laptop- no power


The battery needs to be taken out once in a while. It is possible to use the ac adapter and power cord without the battery to power your laptop. Please press on the power button for 10 seconds for your computer to turn on. Check if you can see any message on the screen.

Toshiba Satellite A105-S4064; can't get battery to charge


If you put strain on the jack (e.g. hang power adaptor from it whilst using or charging) then the socket on the mainboard can get hot due to poor contact and melt.

There is no way to fix this except to completely dismantle the laptop and fit a new socket - most likely a repair centre will charge you for a new mainboard.

Try another adaptor to see if that is the problem (broken wire in cord) - otherwise look closely at the socket in the notebook.

Toshiba Satellite ethernet port disappeared...


I think you have answered your own problem, your wireless has possibly been zapped.
To test your ethernet adapter on your laptop connect it to a network hub, check the hub and see if you have a link light on the hub and or laptop..
To test your wireless router, connect it to a known working computer with a network card and check the router configuration, using the browser, if you cannot access it then its zapped.
