The video card is replaceable and is relatively simple for those comfortable with laptop disassembly.

Probably impossible. Most laptop graphics chips are soldered directly to the motherboard requiring a new motherboard if one dies, and very few are actual "cards." That being said, it looks like your's is a nVIDIA GeForce4 420 Go which might be a card. I'll do some research and find out.

    Well if you look at picture for Step 25 here:

    It does say that it's the "video board." It looks like it's replaceable, so if you can find a replacement card then it should be possible. Unless you are very comfortable following the guide starting at:

    I wouldn't recommend it.

There are no any sounds


First thing make sure you check the manual volume control just on the inboard side of the shell. It's sort of buried below the surface of the shell.
Drivers should be pretty well the same for xp home or pro I think.

I believe this driver should work. It's for a Packard Bell laptop, but it has the same sound card.

Usb ports on a toshiba satellite pro m15-S405


You can if you have good soldering skills. The welds are located on the opposite side of the motherboard. Just go to partstore.com or ebay to find a raw module to replace it. Otherwise you must replace the motherboard. Remember, heat the work not the solder, and use low watt if lots of smaller circuits are closeby.

Recovery Problem


  1. Check you are really using the right CDs
  2. Using another computer with a CD Writer and a blank CD, download this file:
toshdmi10.exe

Run the program, it will explain how to make a boot CD which you will use to start your computer and fix the problem that makes it say Wrong Machine.
Once this is done you can use the recovery cd's again.
