Question about PC Desktops

Toshiba Satellite P105 S6124 Power goes off. Jiggling electrical cord at base of computer gets it back on but when it's moved, it goes off again. Someone looked at it and tried a new cord. Determined that it is motherboard. Help!

    Thank you so very much. I have had a computer person look at the computer and have spent hours on line looking for a solution or for a recall from Toshiba. I could find neither. Within an hour, I have a technical answer in language I can understand. Thank you again. What a wonderful service. Sandfaye.

First, the power cord connects to the Power Unit not the Motherboard, so if jiggling the wire causes the fault, it is either the Power Supply Unit or just the plug and wiring that the power cord plugs into.

If you must open the casing, try replacing the Power Unit, but the best solution is to get a computer repair person to look at it.

If you pull the unit apart and start poking around in there, you will almost certainly blow something up with static electricity (and then maybe your Motherboard will need replacing!). Note The voltage of Static Electricity (which you probably can't feel) is THOUSANDS of times higher than the Voltage that your computer components runs on. For comparison connect up a Mains Supply to a 12 volt globe and see what happens (and this is only 10-20 time higher than the required voltage.

Good luck.

Toshiba Satellite A100-233 is not powering up


Welcome to Fixya.

Here are the things that you can try for troubleshooting a "No power" issue :
  • Remove all connections from the laptop (including all USB cords, ac adapter)
  • Carefully remove the battery and set it aside
  • Press and hold down on the power button for at least 10 seconds
  • Plug the AC adapter back (without the battery) and test the machine
  • If it works,then try to power it again with the battery this time
For your convenience, here's the link for Toshiba's support in case you need to contact them for warranty repair options :

I have harman kardon speakers and I cannot figure how to connect with my computers, both desk top or laptop. There are two speakers with a cable with a light green plub and another plug that has me...


The green plug needs to be plugged in into either a green jack at the back of your computer or into your laptops earphone jack. And if the second cord is a USB cord then plug it into a USB port. If it is a power cord then plug it into a wall socket.

I fogot bios password for Toshiba satellite L305S5907. how can i reset it


Try typing in "Toshiba". If this doesn't work, you can open the case and locate a small watch-like battery, pop it out, count to ten and put it back. Please make sure the power cord is unplugged and you discharge your body's electricity first by touching some metal prior to doing this.
