Question about PC Laptops

1 Answer

Info you asked for

Thanks, but I don't see the pin it explains in the section you emailed. It is a Toshibae Satellite 100CS and the model # is PA1217U V. The it says part # PA1217U-S2W. Serial #04664140-1. It looks old as can be. Going to try the flashlight thing and also the separate monitor. If you can think of anything else I would appreciate it.
Thanks, Sid

Hi Sid, I can find information about the notebook but am unable to find any type of support from Toshiba. This includes drivers & possible bios files.

Since you can not see anything on you're display, the back light may be defective & may need replaced. The goal here at FixYa is to help you find a fix. With that in mind can I suggest you click on this next link that will take you to a friend, here at FixYa. He has more experiance with notebook repairs than I.

Click the ask me button under his name & re-post you're question/problem. Benimer is pretty good with faulty display screens.

Toshiba satellite l505d-s5007 Toshiba satellite l505d-s5007 laptop. Need jumper or dipswitch identification to short out or switch to the bios password.


I don't think that's available on laptops; I've never seen it on Toshiba models. There is usually a small battery to save BIOS info and keep the clock going when the main battery is out. It's either under the keyboard or near the memory or wireless card compartment. Remove the main battery and leave the adapter unplugged. Open the compartments and look for a a connector with just a red and black wire connected to it - if you see it going to a coin cell, that's the one you want. Unplug it and wait ten seconds. Plug it in and put everything back together. If you got the right connector, your computer will probably go straight to BIOS and ask you to set the time and date.

Does anyone know if a Toshiba 100cs Satellite laptop is capable of connecting to broadband?


you could try a USB adapter Or PCMICIA card but it's a pretty old laptop, don't know if the drivers would be compatible. Good luck

Toshiba Satellite BIOS Password Bypass


Removing the CMOS battery for 10 mins will not do it as the chip has a "bubble memory" this will continue to hold all settings for at least 12 hrs so 24 hrs with no power of any kind is recommended to clear it.
