Question about Toshiba Satellite A505-S6975 Notebook

1 Answer

My Toshiba Satellite A505 laptop won't stay on. The tray at the bottom says "No Battery detected" and the computer shuts off after about 5 minutes, even when plugged in. It also won't connect to my wireless network, with the tray icon saying that "No Network is Available." I haven't made any changes to the PC that would cause these problems... they seem to have popped up out of the blue! What do I do?

Take the battery off the laptop, & using a dry tooth brush, scrub in between the fins of the battery connector on the motherboard & on the battery it self, then put the battery back into the laptop & try again.
If this still did not resolve the problem, then the battery itself could be bad. Try it on another laptop, or try a good or new battery in your laptop.
If this did not work, there might be a possibility that the charging circuitry on the laptop's motherboard is defective & needs servicing. In order to do this, the laptop needs to be disassembled & the motherboard checked for defective/burned out components in the area near the DC jack. Any defective/burned out components found should be replaced, or you might need to replace the laptop's motherboard altogether.

2 usb ports on right side of toshiba satellite a505 loose, not usable because not in place


Hello geniet1:

If the USB ports are loose, then the computer is going to have to be disassembled for repair.You should have Toshiba, or a Toshiba authorized service center fix it. If I remember correctly,all you have to do with Toshiba laptops is just drop them off at UPS for repair.UPS sends them to Toshiba for free, and Toshiba returns the repaired laptop to you.

All the Notebooks and Netbooks are shipped with a seperate Software for the Battery.

Once this Software is installed, the Computer will detect the Battery normally.
You may obtain this Software from the Windows Installation Discs which were shipped with the Computer.
You may also download this Software from the Toshiba Support website.
The name of the Software should start as "Battery Checker, Battery Utility" etc.,

CAN I LOSE A CD INSIDE A LAPTOP TOSHIBA SATELLITE A505-S6017


That sounds "impossible".
Close the CD-tray, and turn the computer upside-down, and then open the CD-tray, to see if a "lost" CD disk will be ejected, by Newtonian gravity.
