Toshoba Satellite 2520CDT

Hi,
I have inherited an old Satellite 2520CDT which I want to use for a 4WD GPS system (OziExplorer) with an external GPS receiver linked by Bluetooth. This worked fine for a little while but I think there was a problem when the laptop was charging through the mains adaptor when it was unplugged but left on with the screen closed up, and I think it has locked itself into hiberbate or standby mode. When I turn it on there is the first click or two from the hard disk, the fan starts, but nothing else happens and it won't boot up. I have tried starting without the battery (mains only), starting with ESC pressed, starting with F10 pressed, starting with a Windows (XP) disk, and every combination I can think of of the abova dn some otherse, with no success. It just does not boot up and the screen stays blank. If I plug in another screen it shows there is no power.
Any suggestions please?
Thanks, Graeme.

Not yet. When I find the time I plan to try and switch out the power supply/jack in the back of the machine. I am hoping it is just a matter of a faulty connection. Thanks for asking.

Mark F K, truong808, does the cooling fan(s) blow or come on? If not, the system will sense tha ti is overheating and will shut down to prevent further damage. Also, a thermal sensor may be failing on the Mobo and thus keep the fan from initiating. The cheapest fix is to replace the fan. Worst case scenario is another Mobo may be the fix.

SOURCE: The laptop won't boot/turn on, no noise

Try this:

Remove all connectors, media and devices (cables, USB devices, floppies, CDs etc)

1. Press AND hold the power button for 10 seconds. Light should go out.

2. Remove battery.

3. Plug in PSU (the AC power supply unit)

4. Press power button.

5. If the laptop starts, go all the way to desktop and run the laptop for 20 minutes or so.

6. Shut down and remove PSU.

7. Re-attach PSU and then insert battery.

8. start laptop. If it starts, go all the way to desktop and use laptop for an hour or so, to monitor the battery state, see if it is charging. If it is, go to step 9. If not, test PSU and battery, to see which needs replacement.

9. Otherwise open START MENU/SETTINGS/CONTROL PANEL/POWER SETTINGS.

10. Uncheck HIBERNATION in the tab that applies.

11. Set all spin down, sleep/suspend and monitor settings to "never".

12. Apply/OK and Close Power CP

13. Now leave laptop on, let the laptop sit, idle (or use it) for at least 3 hours.

14. Shut down and remove PSU, then restart.

15. If the laptop will not start, or did not show a full charge before shutting down, replace the battery.

16. Go back and set spin down/suspend and monitor power settings to DEFAULT, but do not use hibernation any more on a 3 year old laptop!

SOURCE: Toshiba Satellite P200 doesn't boot

Try pressing FN/F5 keys simultaneously, or the key that toggles internal/external Display. Look for the double screen Icons on the keys.

Tap the Pause Key.

Restart and press and hold F8 key when Toshiba logo appears. When the boot Menu appears, select Last Known Good Configuration.

If all else fails ther should be a reset button on the side of the LT. Consult owners Manual for location

SOURCE: toshiba satellite M55 not turning on

Either the battery is faulty, or the charger is faulty.
Check the fuse in the mains plug, or even the power point you are using could have a bad connection.
Test using a lamp that you know works or a radio or something and try the charger in another outlet to find the fault.

Have been given a satllite 2520cdt when i turn it on it opens up to **** Bad check sum (CMOS) **** Check system Then press (F11) key can any one tell me hat i need to do please


Looks like the CMOS battery is dead. Open up the case and check the motherboard. You will find a small battery. Buy a new one and replace it and see what happens. www.tigerdirect.com will have what you need or if you are lucky radio shack will have it.

My garmin nuvi has lost satellite service and cannot find any satellite service at all. how can i resolve this?


Hi,

this could be that you are in a poor reception area, have you tried driving around to see if it picks up a signal elsewhere ?
The internal antanea may be faulty, does it have a socket to add an external ?
Has the unit got a reset switch ?

Try rebooting windows, with gps off connect the cable to gps.

Go out side get a good gps signals on nav menu.

Set the gps communications menu to , nmea, 2.1

Plug the device into a good usb port.

If you look under modems, in control panel you should see a new modem called explorist xxx

If you look at the properties for that you can see its com port number.

I just tried this program http://www.visualgps.net/VisualGPS/

and it views nmea from the explorist, just set the com port to the one in the explorist modem .

Need to get an update for my lg ln500 as the maps do not include the major highways in sydney


I have a LG LN500 GPS and want to run other Nav software - Oziexplorer as well as some movie playing software. Since it runs Win CE I figure it should be relatively straight forward.

Has anyone done this to the LN500?

Cheers.
