Question about Toshiba PC Desktops

1 Answer

My Toshiba Tecra A7 has a problem with the VGA port. The connection doesn't hold and appears that the connection hardware on the unit has become faulty and doesn't hold a picture unless there is manipulation and then for only a short time. What do you suggest? Can that portion of the hardware be replaced at a Toshiba repair shop or does the entire laptop need to be replaced?

How to connect my Pavilion g7 notebook to my Toshiba TV


If the TV doesn't have a VGA port, but does have HDMI, purchase a HDMI to VGA cable and insert the VGA into the netbook and the HDMI into the TV. Hope this helps. Get back in touch. Steven :D

I have a HP m7570n. How do I use a flat screen tv as a monitor


This depends on the TV's available inputs. The Pavilion m7570n has only a VGA output in the standard configuration.

Thus if the TV has a VGA port, turn off the computer and the TV. Then connect a standard VGA (RGB or D-sub 15-pin) m/m cable between the computer and the TV. To use the TV speakers, connect a 3.5 mm audio patch cable between the computers Line-out (green speaker port) to the VGA audio in. Turn on the TV and set the input to VGA (with the Source or Input button on the remote or the TV). Then turn on the computer. Windows XP should find the correct resolution to work with the TV. (If you turn on the TV after turning on the computer, you may get an unsupported signal. Press Ctrl-Alt-Del twice to restart the computer.) If it doesn't work, you may need to connect a different monitor and set the computer to a low resolution before connecting the TV and the computer.

If the TV only has composite or component video inputs, you will need a VGA to video converter (http://www.svideo.com/pctocomponent.html for example). A VGA to component cable will not work; those are for projectors that read an RGB input. TVs interpret YPbPr.

If you have added a video graphics card, you may have an HDMI and/or DVI port(s) on the card. In that case, check the specs of the TV. Some TVs will support HDMI or DVI-HDMI inputs from a computer. Others will not (since computer video signals are not the same as the signal from a set-top box). If you use a DVI-HDMI connector, make sure to use the HDMI port labeled for DVI and connect the audio cable as with the VGA connection. If you use an HDMI connection, you may need to set the sound properties to that of the HDMI port. (Find the control panel item for sound (under Hardware) and then select Manage Audio Devices. Set the Playback properties. If it doesn't work, use an audio patch cable.) Some TVs have RCA audio inputs for the HDMI-DVI connector. In that case, you will need a female 3.5 mm to RCA M/M adapter (if you use a 3.5 mm patch cable). There is a similar device if you want to use an RCA audio cable. You may need to enable the video ports on the graphics card before swapping monitors.

Some video cards have a TV out. In that case, connect the appropriate connector (should come with the video card). Then connect to the component, composite or S-video input on the TV.

Again turn off the TV and the computer before making any connections.

You will probably need to provide your own cables for must of these connection options.

I hope this helps.

Wireless connectivity is it possible on the EL1352G


Greetings - Looking at the specs of the machine at the E-Machines website it doesn't appear to have any internal slots for a WiFi card upgrade.


However, there are plenty of USB ports available and an inexpensive USB WiFi dongle ($15-20 USD) would work just fine. Doesn't matter which one, as long as it has drivers for Windows 7 (which would be any recent USB WiFi hardware).


Regards and thanks for using Fix Ya.

Toshiba tecra 8100 , says memory is incompatiable type?


the Toshiba Tecra 8100 only supports 144-Pin PC100 SODIMM RAM chips. It has 2 total RAM slots and can support up to a maximum of 512MB of RAM.

If you have attempted to upgrade the RAM on the unit, ensure that both modules are seated (plugged in) firmly. Also ensure that they are of the correct type (144-Pin PC100 SODIMM), and size (not bigger than 256MB each). Anything other than those types of chips will yield you that message.

If you (or someone else) have not attempted a memory upgrade on the unit, then it's entirely possible that your unit's RAM is failing and I would reccommend bringing it in to a repair shop to have it troubleshot / fixxed.

Hope that helps you, and please do not forget to rate my solution.

Toshiba Tecra A7 Laptop-faulty vga port


No, most any pc repair shop could replace Ur port. The complexity of taling a laptop apart is usually detailed. I repair my own, but keep in mind there are many different size screws and small parts in a laptop. Sometimes the cost of having a laptop repaired is not worth getting a more updated laptop. This technology moves fast.
