The drive is faulty. You need to replace the drive. The reason the DVD still works is because a combo drive has 2 different lasers; one for the CD and one for the DVD. So the CD laser is faulty.

How to restore my toshiba a105-s2236 laptop to factory setting with out a disc


If your Toshiba has a Recovery Partition on your disk drive, then you can boot the system and see which function key it says to hit to get into recovery. Some system will have an option to get into recover under the Programs list. Click Start/Programs and see if there is a recovery there. If all fails you will need an Operating System Disc to reload.

Would a 2x 1gb ram upgrade be better for a toshiba a105-s2236 or would a 1x2gb ram upgrade be better


That computer supports dual channel memory. You would be better to install memory in matching pairs. (2x1GB) On the hardware page of my website www.rfcomputer.biz there is a link to Crucial memory. Just put in your make and model and they will make recomendations

I want to start my laptop over so i may upgrade


That's ridiculous to charge for something so easy! I would be happy to assist you in upgrading your laptop.

First and foremost, after going to the Toshiba website to see if they have any compatibility issues with upgrading to Windows 7 I found there is a BIOS update for laptops who have or may eventually stop charging batteries.

"In very rare cases, the battery pack of your PC may stop accepting a charge, i.e., the battery stops working and no longer supplies power to the computer."

Upgrading the OS will not upgrade the firmware of your BIOS so you might want to do that first. I will be working on a Walk through on upgrading to Windows 7 right now so look out for it. I will post it here when it is done but it might be too big for a response.

Good Luck,

Replacement for toshiba satellite A105-S4244 dvd r/rw drive


Sure--the best one is e-bay!
Whenever I need something like this, I find it on e-bay. But if you really need to contact a company, try Spare Parts Wearhouse at 877-253-8898. National Parts Depot at 800-524-8338 may carry Toshiba parts.
I'd almost bet that the part you need is not made by Toshiba, though. Take it out and when looking for a replacement look for the mfg. name and the model.

Toshiba dvd burner problem


Try unistalling the dvd drive in device manager. Go to my computer click on view system information. Then click on hardware, then click on device manager find your dvd drive then right click and unistall a warning window will popup click ok. Once you unistall it restart the system and windows will find new device and reinstall the device driver. Then check if this fixes the problem. if this dosnt fix the problem try removing the dvd drive from the laptop and reinsert it. Sometimes the connection losses contact with the terminals.
