This is all the information you need when troubleshooting your Toshiba laptop: One of the most common problems with Toshiba Satellite laptops is overheating. This usually happens when you are running a program that is too taxing on the CPU, causing the computer to overheat and shut down. This can usually be avoided by cleaning out your cooling fan, which builds up dust over time. Take a can of compressed air and spray it directly into the heating vents. Follow the directions, or you could end up spraying liquid into your laptop instead of air. Defective Memory Another common issue with Toshiba Satellite laptops is defective on-board memory. This is usually characterized by random symbols on your screen each time you try to restart your laptop. To be sure that it is the memory, perform the test found in the additional resources section below. If the memory is bad, you will have to replace the motherboard completely. Power Jack One of the most frustrating problems with the Toshiba Satellite laptop is the power jack. Because of a faulty design, over time, the power jack on many models of the Satellite laptop begins to loosen. Eventually the the positive pins on the jack no longer keep contact with the motherboard. When this happens, take apart the laptop and resolder the pins of the power jack to the motherboard.

Does toshiba satellite m505-s4940 come with hdmi port

Quoted from CNET review:

"A full-size ExpressCard slot and a memory-card slot are all welcome features, but HDMI has been dropped in the S4940--a plugged-up port is all that remains. "

What is the best way for me to connect my toshiba

Depends on the available connections on the laptop.

You can use the basic monitor out (usually blue) for picture and an mp3 - rca cable for the sound.

Also a white digital out is sometimes present on laptops which can be also used.

There are many ways but as I said it depends on the laptop options.

But better still is hdmi for both if your laptop has it.
