Hello,

Your first approach would be to attempt to reset the laptop by removing external power and the battery and leaving those out for a few minutes. Then, re-install the battery and add external power. Try rebooting again. It may be okay.

Since you state the machine appears not to be booting even though the screen is blank it doesn't make sense to advise you to connect an external monitor to the blue vga out plug, but you can still try that.

When all this fails you can take your machine into a repair ship where they can remove the hard drive and analyze it on another machine and see if you haven't suffered a fatal disc error that can actually recover your disc. They would also tell you if the main board has failed and give you options.

Keep this in mind if it comes to the last paragraph, the cost of repairing your older laptop may be close to the cost of a newer laptop. It is your decision to make. Don't let anyone force you into an expensive repair when you may be able to get into another decent machine, other than Toshiba of course, made by Acer.

Hope this has fixed ya.

I think you should replace it. But if you can't or don't want to you don't have to. I think it haves a power reverse in it and it got hit or damaged from electricity. That could make your computer send files and things like that. It can send them to you, The internet, and even on a near by computers screen. try repair.

I have a Toshiba Satellite® M105-S3041 and my toddler spilled juice on the keyboard and now it won't turn on. When I plug it in, the battery charges, and the blue power light comes on, but the screen...


Most likely you are going to need a motherboard, depending on the model, under the keyboard is the palm rest assembly...most of these have many opening in them that will allow fluid to get directly to the motherboard and they do not do well with liquid spilled on them when they are energized. Below is the link to the service guide for that model. I usually get my mobos on Ebay, but there are other sellers to grab one from.

The arrow dosnot move (M105-s3041)


Lol. This happened to me about 6 months ago, Toshiba has a program called 'TouchPad' Utillity. Which basically enables you to turn ON/OFF the mouse pad, It's shipped with the operating system, Unfortunately if you do turn it off, The mouse pad won't respond and there is no way you can turn it back on, It took my 12 hours to figure this out,It was frustrating, You will need a mouse, Preferably a USB one, plug this in and go to your icon bar in the bottom right hand corner of your desktop screen and there should be an icon saying 'TOUCHPAD', Right click it, Go up and turn it back on, Then you will be back in business:)

Toshiba Satellite M105-S3041 clock problem


Chances are your CMOS battery is dead, it can be replaced inexpensively if you do it yourself. After taking the laptop apart, locate the battery, it looks like a large watch battery. When you remove it, note the battery type and run to your nearest battery store for a replacement.

Screen will not turn on but I can still see it is working


In most cases, it actually is the inverter rather than the backlight, so I would go for replacing the inverter board first. It is also quite a bit cheaper than a backlight, but you have to get the exact model.
Good Luck
