Toshiba Satellite M105-S3041 --- which screw goes where?


On my laptop, I had removed the screws of the entire cover (underside) and through a grave mishap, I now have a pile of screws and no understanding of where they go. Can some one give me assistance? At the same point, would the lack of screws also cause the laptop to run "warmer"?

This laptop has three lengths of screws. The long ones go in the holes labeled F16. The medium ones go into F8 and the shortest ones go into F6.

The "warmer" issue you speak of is highly possible due to the base and top cover of the laptop actually being part of the heat dissipation process. Heat is transferred into the metal that makes up a part of the internal framework.
The screws part is a little harder to know where they were in the first place. In general you will have 2 sizes underneath a laptop.
Long ones normally go around the outside of the casing, and also in holes that do not have panels. Short ones will go into both panels and also the screw holes inside of panel access areas (like inside the mini pci slot bay) These area's can of course have long screws as well. Best bet is to get the long ones in first and it should eliminate most of them.

Hope that helps

Backlight on my toshiba satellite m105-s3041 is not working. how to solve this problem?

Most likely the inverter board is bad. That's what provides power for the backlight, and it's a common failure. The lamp itself may have gone bad, but the inverter is much more often at fault.

It's not difficult to replace the inverter. The board is at the bottom of the display behind the plastic bezel. A few screws hold the bezel to the display back cover. Remove those, separate the bezel from the back and you'll find the inverter underneath. A couple of screws hold the board in and there are two cables plugged into it. Put the new one in place and reconnect the cables, reassemble the display and that should get the backlight operating.

I just did a search for a replacement inverter and there were quite a few sources. Here is one seller who has it at a very reasonable price. I don't know anything about the company; I just picked it because of the price, and since it has a good picture of the part. If you're not in the US, you can check online for sellers who will ship to your area.

Replacing the inverter is one of the simpler laptop repairs, and if you can use a screwdriver you can probably fix this yourself. Good luck, and thanks for using Fixya.

Toshiba Satellite M105-S3041 clock problem

Chances are your CMOS battery is dead, it can be replaced inexpensively if you do it yourself. After taking the laptop apart, locate the battery, it looks like a large watch battery. When you remove it, note the battery type and run to your nearest battery store for a replacement.

Need instruction on how to install memory upgrade

First you have to determine whether this model can support 4Gb or memory.

All laptops use the same memory. SODIMM (Small Outline Dual Inline Memory Module) chips are readily available. It's actually quite easy to upgrade. First remove the small piece of the casing that covers the top part of the keyboard. This should just snap off. Then you should find some screws holding the top of the keyboard to the case. Once you remove these, the keyboard will easily pop out. Carefully disconnect the ribbon cable connector leading to the keyboard. Then you should have access to the RAM chips.

Therefore, the only tool you really need is a small phillips screwdriver. Be careful when handling the chips.

Memory slots?

I found the solution to roger2 and my own problem. The secondary memory add-on slot is on the bottom of the unit, and can be accessed by removing one screw and the slot cover. The other, main memory slot is actually located underneath the keyboard. You should shut down the computer completely, unplug the power plug, and also remove the laptop battery before installing memory. Also, it may void your warranty if you mess around inside of your laptop, so please keep this in mind. You will need to take a very thin flat head screwdriver to gently pry up the panel above the F1-F12 keys. The panel is the entire plastic piece covering the speakers that has the power on, play, stop, ff, rw buttons on it. I used a very thin and flat hair clip that I found laying around to pry up the edges starting from the Pause/Break key moving left towards the ESC key. The screen lid has to be opened all the way for the piece to be completely removed. Once that is taken off, you will see two small screws holding the keyboard in place. Remove these two screws and gently pull out the thin ribbon cable connecting the keyboard to the laptop. The ribbon cable is located directly underneath the spacebar, so move slowly and carefully when removing the keyboard so as not to damage anything. In the center of the exposed area, there is a sort of rectangular metal cover with two screws holding it in place. The one that is about the same size as the slot cover on the other memory slot is the correct one. Remove the screws and open the metal cover. Underneath is the other memory slot. After you install the other memory stick, if you have 4 GB of total RAM, you should know that in 32-bit operating systems, Windows will only be able to use approximately 3.0-3.5GB of RAM. This is because of a limitation of 32 Bit Windows operating systems, and not because of the RAM itself. Only 64-bit operating systems will be able to use all 4 GB. On my system for example, I have the same Toshiba M105-S3041 laptop as you do, running Windows XP Home with two 2 GB sticks, and My Computer properties shows that I have 2.99 GB memory.
