Question about Toshiba Satellite A100-S8111TD Notebook

Open Question

I have a Toshiba A205/S5000 laptop and it fell from my coffee table. When I powered it back on,it showed nothing but a completely white screen and I bought another LCD and installed it and the screen is still completely white. However, I can attach an external monitor and it shows everything just fine. What do I need to do next to fix my problem?

SOURCE: Data Shows up only on External Monitor, not on Laptop Screen

If your system won't display anything w/o the external monitor. there's something wrong with the LCD's backlight. you may have to contact your laptop's manufacturer and check if this laptop is still under warranty. you may have to get the lcd replaced.

thanks.

From what i can barely see it your photo it looks like your video chip  (which is part of the motherboard's chipset) has died. It will be expensive to replace the motherboard.
To recover all your data is easy - just remove the hard disk from the laptop, put it in a case like one of these
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=2010010092%201053807124%201054107131&name=SATA
then connect the case to another pc.

My Toshiba Satellite A205 S5000 came with 2 Ram memory chips of 1GB each. The OS is Windows 7 with 32-bits. Can I upgrade the memory to 4 GB by inserting 2 memory chips of 2GB each?


Hi Lewis

yes you can

here is the link but is cheaper if you just write down the exact numbers from the website and buy in computer warehouse or shop.
http://www.crucial.com/uk/upgrade/Toshiba-memory/Satellite+A205+Series/Satellite+A205-S5000-upgrades.html

but don't forgot to clean your laptop airflow with air duster every month with this you prevent the dust clogging up.
blocked airflow lead to owerheating
and heat differential is not good especially on lead free compound because the composite of welding material contain
silver and aluminium these metals hate each other both has different friction and heat transfer.
lead is more efficient but by eu law is not permitted any more.
if you want to run fast tasks you should go for pc laptop has modified core voltage is slower than computer
and all the high spec numbers are to attract customers to spend money.

I have a Toshiba Satellite a205-s5000 that I replaced the power jack in. They sent me the wrong plug, mine was hard wired into the board so I cut and spliced the new plug to the wires coming out of th


Looking up the DC Power jack for this model, shows me a Center Pin, and cylindrical metal shell; inside the jack.
Center pin is Positive, cylindrical metal shell is Negative.

Also shows it to be a DC Power Harness. Wires connected to the jack, and end in a white plug; that plugs into the motherboard,

http://www.laptopjacks.com/view_part/Toshiba-Laptop-DC-Power-Jack-TS462625.html

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lLPlSsEx5F4

Granted, the above is a A205-S4000 series.
(A205-S4577)

http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/toshiba-satellite-a205/laptop-disassembly-3.htm

http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/toshiba-satellite-a205/big/toshiba-satellite-a200-a205-17.jpg

So...................
1) Am I to assume someone broke the female connector on the motherboard, that the DC Power Harness used to plug into?

Hard wired in this statement would reflect there was a DC Power Harness, soldered directly to the motherboard?

2) Or is your statement that the DC Power Jack itself, for your model; is soldered directly to the motherboard; and you hard wired the new jack in place; after cutting the plug off of the end of the new DC Power Harness? (And removing defunct DC Power Jack)

Plus; Is this an A205-s5000, or one of the A205-s5000 model series?
A205-s5800, A205-s5801, A205-s5803, A205-S5843, etc.

Yes.

Trying to figure out why this A205, has a DC Power Jack soldered directly to the motherboard, and is not using a DC Power Harness.

Why?

Have to make sure you are soldering to the right area, yet alone the correct contact points.

Don't know what I'm talking about? You unsoldered the DC Power Jack FROM the motherboard? Or the jack was soldered to wires, and wired to the motherboard.
Hardwired. The term can be used for either scenario.
That's the way it was originally?

K

Let's go on.

The DC Power Jack is connected to the DC to DC power circuit; on the motherboard. (Power/Charging circuit)
This circuit is near where the DC Power Jack is mounted, or where the DC Power Harness plugs in.

In the circuit are Surface Mount Devices that are prone to go bad.
One is the Power MOSFET's, the second are MLCC's.

(Multi-Layer Ceramic Capacitor.
They, and the P.MOSFET's, are SMD/SMT
Surface Mount Device/ Surface Mount Technology)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MOSFET

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Power_MOSFET

Let's use the HP Pavilion dv6000 series, and Pavilion dv9000 series Notebook PC's, for an example,

http://mayohardware.blogspot.com/2010/04/important-parts-on-dv6000-and-dv9000.html

These series of Notebook PC's use the;
Fairchild Semiconductor International - FDS6679 - Power MOSFET, and the,
Alpha & Omega Semiconductor Limited - AO4407 - Power MOSFET.

Look at the second photo down, with the AO4407 circled in Yellow.
Immediately below it, (Right corner), and immediately to the right of the AO4407; are MLCC's.
Smaller rectangular object with a dark wide band in the middle of it.

There is one above the one, to the immediate right of the AO4407; one above it, one to the Right of the top one; and one to the right of it.
There are also 4 smaller examples to the bottom/left corner of the AO4407.

Look to see if any are burned/blackened.

Example of availability, and cost of FDS6679, and AO4407,

http://www.mouser.com/Search/Refine.aspx?Keyword=FDS6679

Scroll down. One Dollar and one Cent, USD.

http://www.mouser.com/Search/Refine.aspx?Keyword=AO4407

Here we see the AO4407 is phased out.
Using one of the cross-reference examples given,

78 Cents USD.

Just to show examples of MLCC's that are SMD/SMT.
The examples I chose are 4.7uf (MicroFarad), and 16 Volts. (DC)

Toshiba satellite CD door will not open


http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/toshiba-satellite-a205/laptop-disassembly-1.htm

1) ALL power removed. Remove the AC adapter (Charger), and Battery.

2) Turn the laptop over bottom side up, Battery Compartment facing AWAY from you, down on a table.
You may wish to lay a soft Static free cloth on the table, to prevent scratching the table, or laptop.

3) Take this cover off,

http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/toshiba-satellite-a205/big/toshiba-satellite-a200-a205-02.jpg

Remove the Ram Memory module/s. ('Stick')
Lay them/it carefully aside. Handle by the BODY. The Body is everywhere on the Ram Memory module, EXCEPT the gold plated contact pins at the bottom.

The Body is coated with a see-through protective plastic.

4) Remove this Philips head screw, and push the optical drive out,

http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/toshiba-satellite-a205/big/toshiba-satellite-a200-a205-03.jpg

The top of the optical drive will have small Philips head screws, or Torx screws. They sell Torx screwdrivers real cheap,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Torx

Remove the screws, remove the cover, remove the disk.

joecoolvette

[Sounds like you may need a replacement optical drive ]

Toshiba Satellite A205-S5000 i changed a broken screen and now computer does not start, it seems like is a power problem, the power lid turns red as soon the computer starts


Sounds like while replacing it you may have clipped or forgotten to attach a cord when putting it back together. I'd open her up, and look at everything you touched, and see what isn't hooked up or what cable is broken. If you find none, it's very possible you gave your computer a static shock and fried your motherboard. If that's the case, get a new PC.

Dual Processors for Toshiba Satellite A205-S5000 533Mhz FSB


you got a cheap laptop. maybe from walmart or some other store that was selling it for about $400. It doesn't have a processor that you can switch out. I'm sure it's horribly slow for Visa, so my advise would be to sell it and get something with a dual core.
