Try connecting it to a THIRD computer. If it works, then it's your PC that has a problem,
either software-related (Windows "plug-and-play" not working, or has been disabled,
or USB ports have been marked as "disabled") or hardware-related (USB port(s) have been
physically damaged.

Touch pad problem


I also have encountered that problem particularly on my touchpad. When I tried to open the laptop I've notice that the flex cable connecting the touchpad to my motherboard is detached. When I put them back. It was working properly.

Thanks. Cheers!

I cannot get any response from my toshiba satellite p305d-s8828. I have plugged it in - nothing. No lights at all when pushing the start button. Help, please.


There could be a problem with the battery. A fast check to determine whether you have a problem with the power adapter, power cord or the laptop's battery is to turn off the laptop, remove the battery, connect the power adapter, turn on the laptop & see if it works.
If the laptop works directly from the power adapter with the battery removed, then the power adapter is good. In this case we can suspect that the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.

If this did not work, try also disassembling the laptop & make sure that all main components are seated properly. Also make sure that all ribbon cables interconnecting the various components of the laptop are tightly connected.

Volume


follow the below checklist :

Check1 : Is power for speakers on

Check2 : Are speakers connected correctly to laptop (fixcables)

Check3 : nothing on volume control is muted

Check 4 : try to check with other pc or laptop if speakers are working.

If speakers are working with other computer , then all you need to do is instal audio drivers from mother board CD which you get from hardware manufacturer....

If the speaker is not working with other PC

check 5: if all the wires are in good condtion

If yes.. then contact hardware manufacturer
