A70 recover disc in A35 Laptop? (Toshiba Satellite)

Ok i have a small problem.

I have a Satellite A70-A75 Recover Disc.

But I need to recover my A30 that has no disc, can I use the A70-A75's recover disc in the A30?

I just ordered the A70-A75 disc last week from Toshiba and it was $35 for shipping.

Kinda strapped for cash at the moment and really don't want to order yet another disc.

Was hoping I can get away with just using the Satellite A75 Disc in the Satellite A30.

Any help would be appreciated.

Recovery disks are model-specific, mainly because they have different devices and drivers. Setup drivers are downloadable, and copied to a CD at an Internet cafe.

I need Toshiba Satellite L455D-S5976 (PSLY5U00Q01T) PC Notebook factory restore instruction


Hello there,
Newer Toshiba laptops usually have the ability to create recovery discs that will let you recover to "factory settings." Try this:

1. Click Start

2. Select All Programs

3. Select Recovery Disc Creator.

Recovery Disk Creator

4. Within the Recovery Disc Creator select Create

5. When prompted enter the first blank DVD and select Ok

6. When prompted enter the second blank DVD and select Ok

I hope this helps. Thumbs up if you think so.

I can't find out how to make a recovery disc. Running Vista OS.


If your laptop still has the recovery partition on drive "E" press F8 just before the laptop starts to boot, just as the Toshiba screen dissapears. That will give you the menu option to choose Recover.
Choose recover and follow the prompts.
If the partition is damaged or missing, it cannot be done from the hard drive and the purchase of a Vista system disc will be required.

Screen black & with no power


hi there,

you can follow this instruction and try to your laptop to resolved the problem.

A bad connection between DC-IN power jack on the system board and the system board is a very common problem with Toshiba Satellite M35X and Toshiba Satellite A70/A75 notebooks. If your laptop is out of warranty, then you can fix the problem by resoldering DC-IN jack on the system board. If it’s still under warranty, it would be fixed at no charge to you.
Problem symptoms:
  1. Laptop randomly shuts down without any warning.
  2. Power LED and battery charge LED start flickering when you wiggle the power cord or the AC adapter tip on the back or your laptop.
  3. The battery will not get charged.
  4. When you plug AC adapter, the laptop appears to be dead and there is no LED activity at all (DC-IN jack on the system board is broken).
To fix the problem, you have to take your laptop apart, remove the system board to resoleder or replace the DC-IN jack. Toshiba Satellite M35X and Toshiba Satellite A70/A75 disassembly guides will help you to remove the system board. Take a closer look at the power jack on the system board with a magnifying glass. In most cases you get the power problem because of a bad connection between the DC jack and the system board, you’ll see a crack between the DC jack connector and the system board.
Here is an example of Toshiba Satellite M35X power jack. The crack occurs between the DC jack pin and the system board.
satellite-m35x-crack.jpg satellite-m35x-contact.jpg In some cases the connection is good, but the DC jack is bad itself. You can find a new DC jack for Toshiba Satellite M35X and Toshiba Satellite A70/A75 laptops here. Search for DC jack M35X or DC jack A75.
How to resolder laptop power jack yourself.
UPDATE:
Sometimes, after you replace the jack, you can see that the system board doesn’t get power at all. The battery will not charge and the power LED will not light when you plug in the AC adapter. So, here’s a possible explanation.
When a connection between the positive pin and the motherboard breaks (cracks), the power jack gets loose. You can feel it when you plug in the adapter plug. A loose power jack can damage the trace inside the hole in the system board. Take a look at the picture.
power-jack.gif As you see, the positive pin goes through the hole in the system board and you solder it on the top side. Right? What if the trace between the top side and the bottom side is broken somewhere inside the hole? I’ve seen it before a few times. In this case everything looks nice and clean on the top side. When you plug in the AC adapter, you get normal voltage readings between “+” and “-“ pins on the top side, but the power DOESN’T go to the motherboard at all, because there is no connection between the top and bottom sides. Test with a multimeter if there is a connection between the top and the bottom.
If the trace inside the hole is broken you still can fix it. You can run a wire to connect the top and the bottom sides. Be careful not to short something on the board.
Update:
Here’s another solution to fix the power jack problem, it shows how to relocate the power jack outside the laptop base. Check it out here: Toshiba Satellite A75 failed power jack workaround.
When you repair a loose power jack, it’s a good idea to check the jack on both sides of the motherboard. When you remove the top cover from a Toshiba Satellite A70/A75 laptop you can see only points where the jack is soldered to the motherboard as it shown on the second picture in this post, but you cannot see the jack itself as it shown on the first picture.
Removing the motherboard from Satellite A70/A75 laptop is a good idea because the jack itself might has a broken “+” pin, as it shown on the picture below. If the “+” broke off the base, you’ll have to replace the jack.

Losses charge really fast


The computer should work, long enough until recovery completes and BIOS updated, with mains power plugged in, and the battery may need to be replaced.

Sounds like your fan may be clogged up. I suggest you consult the documentation on how to remove the laptop cover and then clean the fan out. You will be surprised at all the crap in it.

Good luck.
