Its possible that you have a faulty monitor. To isolate or confirm that its the screen, get a VGA cable and plug it into a stand alone monitor. If you see anything then it must be the laptops wiring to the screen or the screen itself.

Thanks!

My Toshiba Satellite A70-S256 PC Notebook no sounds coming from earphone jack or laptop speaker.


Just make sure the speaker looking icon at the right bottom corner of te screen doesn't have a red slash across it. If it does, move the cursor over it and click the left mouse button to remove it.

Hope that was the cause and helps.

Hi Barb,

On the Toshiba A70 you should try holding down the fn key at lower left and pressing the F5 key which is the video transfer keyboard command for pretty much every Toshiba laptop. Otherwise, their little pictograms on the F keys almost always have a tiny representation of a laptop next to a monitor.

Hope this is helpful.

Toshiba Satellite a70-s256 fan issues


Instead, turn the computer off.
Disconnect the AC power.
Remove the battery.
Purchase a can of compressed-air.
Give your computer a "blow-job", to remove all the dust that has accumulated inside your computer.
The dust has been acting as "insulation", forcing the fans to run faster, and with more noise.

Cooler computer -> quieter computer.

Satellite (A75S206) runs well from outlet but never from battery. Was told that mobo can't accept dc. Need new mobo. True?


hello loyd516,

Have you tried a new battery? They are much much cheaper, and a whole lot easier to replace than a motherboard.

Here are replacement batteries that I found searching with Google.
http://www.google.com/products?q=Satellite+A75-S206+battery&hl=en

According to Toshiba, there has been a battery recall for your specific model.
If that is the case I would definitely contact Toshiba support about it. Maybe you will get a free battery out of the deal. Who knows.
Here is the link and the list(your model is highlighted)

How do I get my laptop to start?


It sounds as though Windows Vista was either a pirated copy, or the installation of it has corrupted the original XP install in some way. It also sounds as though your computer either has missing drivers (sound problem) or serious hardware issues. What does the message that comes up when you start your computer say?

Turn the laptop upside down with the Battery facing you. In the middle of the case you will see a L shaped cover. The the RIGHT of this is another cover that is more square shape. Remove the 2 screws and then lift the cover. You will then see the hard-drive.
