Question about Toshiba Satellite A665-S6086 Laptop

1 Answer

I purchased the Toshiba A665-S6086 approx 1 month ago. The battery on the computer seems very loose. Should it have "give" in it or should it be more stable? Also, the sound vibrates when you move the computer even slightly. Any reason for this? Thank you.

- The battery should fit snuggly. Have that checked.
- As for the sound problem, most likely, you have the "Hard drive protection utility" installed and enabled.

When you move the laptop, the hard drive protection kicks in and the read/write heads go into park position freezing the laptop for a fracture of second. Apparenlty this causing the sound to statter.

You can disable the hard drive protection for a while and see if it fixes the problem.

Also, try reducing the movement detection sensetivity in the hard drive protection utility.

Here's a dumb one, I dropped my A665-S6086 last night. HDD light comes on, then get regular beeps. Bios shows HDD not installed. Something loose? broken? recoverable?


Hi! Welcome to www.fixya.com
Its best to go to local tech so they can reseat the hdd and check if it just loose. You can try to swap another hard drive to too. Check again if this can be detected at the bios.If its under warranty then get a replacement for it and reinstall the Operating system.
Hope this resolution fix the problem on your computer. Thanks for contacting Fixya. Bye for now.

I have toshiba a665-s6086 , notice problem when i play sound file and get move the laptop up or right after that i hear noise in speakers , i payed this laptop new


Sounds like a loose connection from the speaker cable to the motherboard, Or possible bad connection with the speaker terminals. If you purchased this new and it is under warranty, I'd be taking it back for investigation

I have a toshiba satellite A665-S6088 and today I have a message "plugged in but not charging" and the battery is not charging. What is this?


Hello, try these steps and see if it fixes your problem. First, shutdown your computer. Unplug it and take out the battery. Hold down the power button for thirty seconds. Also unplug the power outlet from the wall. Then plug it back in and put the battery in and turn it back on. See if that fixes your problem. Are you using a genuine Toshiba charger?
