    I have a Toshiba Satellite L30/L35 Series that has been working perfectly until I started it up this AM. I use it every day with no hint of a problem I checked the power cords and that didn't help. Maybe someone could offer suggestions to help me solve this problem. Thank You,

Do you have a problem with the backlight on your laptop? If yes, you are not alone, that’s one of the most common laptop problems. In most cases the screen inverter is the culprit. Here are some LCD screen backlight failure symptoms that could be related to a bad inverter board:
- Laptop boots as usual but after some time the screen blacks out. You still can see an image on the screen but it’s very dim. You might even use a flashlight to see it better. Sometimes the backlight comes back for a while but then goes off again. In some cases you can turn the backlight on if you tap rapidly on the lid close switch.
- The screen always stay black and the backlight never comes on but you still can make out an image on the LCD. It’s dark, but the image is still there.
-In some cases you might hear a buzzing noise coming from the area where the inverter board is located, it’s on the bottom part of the display assembly.
NOTE: if you cannot see an image on the screen, most likely you have a different problem and there is nothing wrong with the screen inverter. HERE IS A WEBSITE THAT SHOWS HOW TO REMOVE IT AND REPLACE OH AND EBAY HAS THEM FOR AROUND 30 TO 60 DOLLARS

I need to know if the mother board from the p205d-s7436 is compadable for the s7438 model


Satellite P205d-s7436 motherboard,

Satellite P205d-s7438 motherboard,

http://www.sparepartswarehouse.com/Toshiba,Laptop,Part,K000056150.aspx

Same part number used for both laptop models.

Satellite P205d-s7436 specifications,

http://www.cnet.com/laptops/toshiba-satellite-p205d-s7436/4505-3121_7-33428376.html

Satellite P205d-s7438 specifications,

http://www.cnet.com/laptops/toshiba-satellite-p205d-s7438/4505-3121_7-32658635.html

Just by comparison of the specs the data suggests only a Processor change, Ram Memory amount, and Harddrive size.

Uses a Socket S1 processor socket on both model's motherboards,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_AMD_mobile_microprocessors#.22Tyler.22_.2865_nm.29

Both models use an AMD 690V graphics chipset, (ATI Mobility Radeon X1200)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AMD_690_chipset_series

The answer is Yes.

Toshiba P205D-S8802 will not start up. Pressed power button, and hear the droves starting up and then stops. The screen remains black.


Hopefully you have more than 1 stick of RAM. I would remove 1 and try it again, if that doesn't work, try the other one. When it's powering up and then powering off quickly, that could also be a heat issue. Make sure all of the fans are powering on. Also you can try removing the battery, and trying with just AC power connected. Some laptops won't let you do this, but some will, and if the battery is causing the issue, it should work.
User guide can be found here, which will walk you through getting to the memory bay. http://www.retrevo.com/support/Toshiba-P205D-S8802-Laptops-manual/id/12395ag000/t/2/
If this helps, please provide a positive rating.
