Question about Toshiba Satellite P305D-S8834 Notebook

1 Answer

I have a Toshiba Satelitte P305D-S8834 lap top computer. And am experiencing Unexpected shut downs. when trying to restart; the first attempt it will try to restart then shut down again, second attempt I get the start normally, safe mode screen, then third attempt I get windows detected start up problems, would you like to repair/restore. After going through the start up repair, the computer comes back on and stays on. This has happened a dozen times in the past three weeks. Do you have any idea what may be causing this problem? I searched the Toshiba support and found others were were experiencing shut downs, although none of them listed that they were being taken to the start up problem page when shutting down. Most of the answers that were given them was that the computer was over heating. Please Help Thank You Lloyd Putman

Usually you will get shutdowns through Virus/malware infection or overheating.
For overheating, clean out the fans/heatsink
For infection

Screen is black. Power button lights up, fans and DVD seem to work.

hi there,

What you are experiencing with your laptop is "POST" (Power-on self test) issue. Here are some steps which you can try.

- Remove the battery and ac adapter (as well as external peripherals attached), press the power button for atleast 15 seconds, try to power on your computer again.
- If you have external monitor, hook it up. Display on the external monitor would mean that you have a LCD issue (check LCD cable, LCD inverter and LCD backlight in this case). No display on the external monitor would mean that you need to replace the video card (if dedicated) or replace the whole system board (if integrated).
- Try to reseat or replace the memory module as well, it might help.

My Toshiba satellite P305D-S8834 will not turn on. It was not dropped. I opened our lab top and it would not turn on. I push the power button and lights come on with the power switched an indicator lights....

More an likely its your LCD. If it powers up and you are getting a hard drive activity light then that points to your LCD, could be a damaged backlight or inverter.

Can I install a better CPU into my Toshiba Satellite P305D-S8834 17 1 Widescreen Notebook Computer then the AMD Turion X2 Processor RM-70 it came with?

Changing CPU is a serious change. When your unit was built the processor speed and type were written into the BIOS. When we change the CPU to a different type there is a chance that the BIOS will not recognize it and refuse to boot up. Also Windows was installed with the original CPU and a major change in hardware could mess up Windows.

I did some research and found this model comes with a 2.0-GHz AMD Turion X2 Dual-Core RM-70 CPU and 4GB of RAM. This is not the fastest CPU that can be put in a laptop but a very good one. (faster than mine)

I can guide you through the steps to replace it but my advice is stick with what you have until it breaks and buy a faster laptop. The upgrade won't gain you enough to justify the expense.

Hi, I have a P305D-S8834, daughter left it on the bed on and when we came back it would no longer boot up, only lights on the base, nothing on lcd, I replaced the motherboard and still the same. Any ideas?

Probably burned struff up ... on the bed the computer cannot get vital cooling air because the covers blocked the fan suction.

If this is the case, you have a parts computer. Dont try to fix it.

I have two Toshiba lap tops, I had the same problems which you have, tell you the truth, I took them to Bevely Hills factory warranty shop changed the mother board and then after eight months, I had some other problems, total five times in the repaire shop and finally passed the warranty. It is totally gone.
