Computer goes black if we move it

Do you mean that the screen blacks out? It is possible that the ribbon cable that internally connects the display to the main board of the laptop is loose, try holding the display steady, and do not allow it to move, if that prevents the screen blacking out, you have a loose cable. If you are still under warranty, then you should be able to get it replaced by an official Toshiba dealer, but that depends on whether this was caused by accidental damage, etc. (Toshiba support should tell you the details). If you aren't under warranty, you can attempt a DIY repair by opening up the laptop and locating the ribbon cable, but if you are uncomfortable, and not confident about that, then you should take it to Toshiba, as DIY has a chance of worsening the problem in some cases.

Speedometer bounces around on my 1972 chevrolet pickup and makes a noise within the cable where it connects on the cluster..

There is a cable inside the sheath of you speedometer cable that looks like a long tightly wound spring. It may be about to fail. You can remove it and get a new one. If it can not all be removed from the top - you will have to undo the cable at the transmission to remove it. Be sure you get all of it out. When you reinstall the new cable be sure and lube it well. I use motorcycle chain oil - it is water proof and lasts a long time. Let me know if this helps. Thanks. (nice a '72 hope it is realy good shape)

My computer says that the hard drive is not inserted correctly.what do I do

Open your computer casing and look for the ribbon cable attached to your hard disk drive and motherboard. Unplug the ribbon cable from the motherboard and hard disk drive. Then put it back again the cable and observe, if the problem is still the same. Next part is to unplug the ribbon cable from motherboard and hard disk drive and observe for the sound comes from your hard drive. Try also switching your ribbon cable into another IDE ports.Normal hard disk drive usually have a normal sound but the defective hard disk drive have a mechanical noisy sound. Have a good day.

Left & right arrow keys not working.

Try to connect an external keyboard, see if that one works. If it does, then the problem is most likely a loose ribbon cable from the internal keyboard to the motherboard (especially if you recently installed a new one) - also, while you are examining the cable, look for any tears, cuts, or kinks in the cable. Good luck!

Changing the ribbon

I just had the same problem today except I needed open because of a paper jam. Anyways, I started by using a philips head screwdriver and pried by where the plug is and worked my way around. The cover is held on by the screws on the bottom and some tabs inside. You kind of have to pull if open as it is very stubborn. Good luck!

Ds shell

you are best watching a dismatling video on youtube, here is a good on but sound is foreign:

A few tips:

Take care with those speakers, the connectors are very sensitive and the wires can easily break.

Take care with the screen ribbon cables and connectors on the board, the two big ribbons have connector that lift up the little ones slide outwards.

the hinge cover has a little screw near the ribbon cable dont forgot to take that off so you can extract the ribbon through the case slot and don't forgot to replace that on your new case before putting it all back together.

on the top screen the ribbon cable may be covered by a bit of sticky foam, just peal that away carefully to access the ribbon.

Watch you dont loose any buttons by tipping the case when dismantling.

In general just take care and dont attempt to turn it on whilst in bits, you could short the screen on the board and blow a fuse.

Good luck...

No sound on nintendo ds. How do I fix?

The speakers are wired from the ribbon cable that also provides the top screen illumination. That cable gets plenty of abuse by opening & closing the DS. Could be a break/tear in that ribbon cable. Does either speaker work? both are bad? If neither work, it's a rather involved process to fix yourself (soldering, etc). You can mail it away for service. Call Nintendo to get a quote.
