Question about Toshiba PC Desktops

1 Answer

I have a Toshiba Satellite L45-S7423 Notebook. The thing never comes out of "sleep" if you happen to leave it on and walk away for a while. It is fine if the screen saver is still there, but if goes to "sleep" (or is it hibernate, I don't know the differnce), it reboots, gives error messages and wants to go to safe mode when it restarts. I thought it should just go back to where it was left last.

Using Hibernate uses lots of disk space, be sure you got atleast 20GB of free disk space on your hardisk when using Hibernate, also use surface disk checking software to see if you got badsector on your disk.

Proper Procedure for Putting Computer to Sleep


Change your sleep settings in the Control Panel under Power Options. You can set it to never go to sleep or have it to go to sleep after 2 hours. There will be settings to control when the monitor shuts off, when the hard drive shuts off, etc.

I have a Dell Optiplex 780 and when I am logged in and walk away for 15 or more minutes it will go to sleep, I will then come back wake it up, log in and the screen will go black and I cannot get in unless...


This problem is ongoing because you have it configured to sleep turn the sleep mode off. What it is doing is attempting to load drivers again and not saving to cache when in sleep mode you may have not enough storage allotted for the sleep mode to save information go and increase the storage memory to store the data so that when it sleeps it can store the data and wake up with your screen as it was when you left it.
Personally I do not use sleep mode never have, never will. It is nothing but a problem for me anyway. I always keep my machines running with the exception of a lap top. So my suggestion is turn sleep mode off. I also log out and then log back in same principal really. Or just close the machine totally power it down. Sleep mode was a wonderful concept along with shutting down hard discs etc. However you will often times be more into a hassle than just leaving it on or shutting it down. Less work for a computer is better just my humble opinion.
Last but not least, my last resort would be to re-install operating system again once I start getting to many things going wrong with my machines I do them over solving all sorts of problems that are behind the scenes that take hours sometimes to repair individually. This would be after you retrieve your lost files from the drive. John

How can a remove a stuck Screw inside of a Toshiba Satellite L455-S5989 Laptop. The screw that is stuck holds down a PCIe mini Wireless Card.


Take the laptop apart techgeek564.

You Definitely do Not want it roaming around in there, to short out the laptop.

Here is the Service Manual, (Free),

http://www.tim.id.au/blog/tims-laptop-service-manuals/#toc-toshiba

Go to the 11th line down.
The one that starts with > Satellite A10
In this listing of files go down to the second line, (Starts with > C650D), and then go across to >
L450. Click on L450.

[The Toshiba Satellite L455-S5989 is part of the Toshiba Satellite L450 series ]

After you click on L450 it will take about 5 seconds to see the first page, and additional time to fully download.
(Took 45 seconds for me just now)
Suggest you let the file download all the way before looking through it.

You are not permanently downloading the file. If you want to save a copy to your computer, and do not know how, post in a Comment.

[This way you won't have to download again. You can also burn a copy of to a CD disk for safekeeping, and having access anytime you want.
Further, you can delete the file from your harddrive after burning a copy, and save harddrive space ]

A) ALL power removed from the laptop. AC adapter (Charger) and Battery.

B) Buy and use an ESD wrist strap. Connect the alligator clip to a good ground source.
(Electro Static Discharge)

Your body carries Static electricity, and Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit) the hardware components inside a computer.
The ESD wrist strap will relieve your body of Static, and safeguard your laptop from Static shock

Average price of an ESD wrist strap is around $3 to $6. Much cheaper than a new laptop.

C) Use a multi-compartment container for the various screws you will remove.
Mark each compartment for the area the screws come out of.
There may be as many as 60 screws, and 12 different types.
Do Not mix them up!

You can use a clean egg carton, and mark the egg holders.

D) Make a record as you disassemble. Make drawings and notes. Use a camera, or videocam if available.
(Use Good lighting)
It's nice to have a record to refer back to in case you get interrupted.

My new eMachine keeps crashing. I walk away with items open and when I come back, it has done an unscheduled reboot - like someone walked by and pulled the plug except it does come back on on its own. ...


Open Control panel (switch to classic view). Double click on "Power Options" (green cell in Vista) and select 'High Performance'.

If its already set to High Performance settings, inspect the cables especially at the jacks as they may be loose.

You have to make sure the electricity does not cut randomly and if it does, use a UPS (with adequate rating eg 400 Watt PSU needs 400/06=650VA UPS) or an inverter.

When the PSU (power supply unit) is failing it can cause the system to restart randomly until it fails completely taking away the motherboard with it.

At this stage you should not open the case but try the steps I have suggested.

Note that in addition to the above a software conflict may be forcing the system to reboot. If the problem persists, contact E-machines as you are within the official 1 year warranty period.

Compaq Presario stuck in sleep mode


Connect the monitor to some other computer, e.g., a notebook, and see if it does the same thing. If it does, then the monitor is the problem.
If it does not, then your computer is not putting-out any "video" signal, and so the monitor goes to "sleep".

If you have MORE than one VGA-output port on your computer, connect your monitor to the "other" VGA port.

Or, press-and-hold the ON/OFF button on your computer, to force it to completely shutdown.

I have a laptop Toshiba Satellite L45-S7423 i have installed windows xpsp2 in this laptop. but i need all the drivers like vga, sound, wifi


The easiest way is to go to Microsoft website & log onto drivers. Choose the particular driver you are looking for, for what accessosy, like vga, sound, etc. Download to your hard drive & install it. Reboot after successful installation. Try the sound or set vga to newly installed driver. This may solve your problem.

Toshiba Laptop crashing


Hi vfcork4al67, did your notebook come with restore cd's or a windows cd? If yes load your restore cd or windows cd into the cdrom drive. Boot the notebook. The notebook should go to the cdrom & start to load the cd. Follow the on screen instructions if you booted to the restore cd & re-install the operating system. This will over write windows & repair windows files. If your not using a restore cd but do have a windows cd repeat the same instruction above as if it were the restore cd.
I'll post a link for your Toshiba Satellite a100 notebook but there are many A100's. You will need to find the correct notebook you have. Click the link below & find your notebook.
http://www.toshibadirect.com/td/b2c/afin.to?stt1=Notebook%20PCs&stt2=Satellite

Once you find the corect A100 download the network card driver. You will need this to enable you to get online & download all the updated drivers for your notebook. I suggest you update windows asap. Many drivers & software installs need many window updated files in order to function correctly. Turn on windows firewall to help protect you while downloading & untill you install virus protection. Need some free virus protection. Click the link below & download & install AVG.
