The SMART function on your computer monitors your SATA hard drive to let you know if it is at risk of failing.

The Disk Utility has an easy to use interface so even a novice can perform this task.

Insert your OSX install disc into the computer's optical drive. Start the computer while holding down the "C" key. Choose your language from the menu that appears. Click the "Installer" tab and then click "Open Disk Utility" form the menu, Click the "Disk Utitlity" icon from the menu and then click the "First Aid" tab at the top of the menu. Click the "Repair Disk" button and wait for the repair to complete. Restart your computer. Windows PC Click the "Start" button and then click on the "Computer" option. Right-click on your SATA hard drive and then click the "Properties" button. Click on the "Tools" tab and then click the "Check Now" button. Click on the box next to "Automatically fix file system errors" and then box next to "Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors. It might take some time depending on the of the disk be patient. Have no input while the chkdsk utility is in progress any input might further damage your hard drive. Click the "Start" button.

Toshiba Satellite A105 PC Notebook


When you turn it on, do you hear any activity? Motors start working, fan spinning, etc…? Try to connect an external monitor and start the laptop. Check if you can get any video on the external monitor. If the external monitor is dead too, try to remove the battery and start the laptop from the AC adapter. It also might be a bad memory module or a bad connection between the memory and the motherboard. Try to reseat the memory module, move it to the second slot. If you have two memory modules, try to remove them one by one and turn on the laptop. Also, try to remove the hard drive and see if you can boot it to Toshiba screen without the hard drive installed.


There is no special button to reseat the BIOS settings. To do it, you’ll have to access the BIOS using F2 button on the laptop start up, but as you have no video, you cannot access the BIOS and set it to defaults.
