Well the good thing is you have spotted it before it damaged the motherboard.
If you want to repair it then you will need a few tools.

  1. Set of micro screwdrivers (not the lind used by jewellers)
  2. Good soldering iron
  3. Good quality solder
  4. A lot of patience and a good memory.
The board will have to be removed from the case to do this correctly.
Ahead you have about 50-60 screws in diffrent sizes, alot of very sensitive circuits etc.

The seconds method, drop it to a laptop repair centre, they will do it and have it back before you know it. Call a few to get quotes first. Laptop shops like to charge stupid prices for some things.

    Oh, I should have mentioned it may even still be under warranty. If it is, get them to fix it for free, just don't expect it back for a few weeks.

Toshiba satellite m55-s139 problem no screen no beep


Hello.

The most common power reasons are the battery, power jack and power adapter/cord.

Power off and remove the battery. If the laptop powers on with just the adapter connected, your battery is faulty.

If you move/wiggle the power adapter at the point where it connects to the laptop, and the power goes off and on, the power jack is the problem.

The power jack is inside the laptop and either needs soldering or replacement.

If no change, the power adapter is probably faulty and needs replacement.

Hope this helps.

You definitely need to bring your laptop to the Toshiba shop near you. There they can facilitate the replacement of your laptop's body (casing). It is a critical task to do and I think a Toshiba authorized shop can help you with this. Thanks.

Lan driver


Go to the following site.
1. Choose Category = Portables
2. Choose Family = Satellite
3. Choose Model = M55-135

Filter on Lan and the drivers come up for XP
If this doesn't work list the detail specs from the device manager on the specific component you want and it can be found.
