Question about Toshiba Satellite 1805-S273 (PS181U-0301MHE) PC Notebook

1 Answer

I have an old Toshiba Satellite 1805-S273 that has Windows ME. I would like to upgrade the operating system in order to give the laptop to my 5-year old son to play educational games. I purchased Windows 7 at a computer store at the advice of the store tech expert, but cannot get it to upgrade. What can I do?

You will find that Win7 will not work on the laptop, it is too old. You may get away with Win2000 or maybe XP, bearing in mind most of the drivers now are no longer available.
It will work with Win98.
I have browsed the net and cannot find any upgrades apart from Ubuntu
Win7 need an awful lot of RAM to work properly, Vista also but XP considerably less for XP home.

Upgrade CD/DVD ROM to CD-RW/DVD ROM


I just replaced my original CD/DVD ROM with a Toshiba SD-R2512 CD-RW/DVD ROM in my 1805-S253 running Windows ME. I used "Roxio Easy CD Creator" for writing to CD's. Everything was "plug'n'play" except the bezel that came with the new drive had to be swapped out. Windows ME recognized the new drive immediately and I didn't have to load any new drivers. This upgrade will probably work on other 1800 or 1805 Satellite series machines.

You can either replace the screen , or replace the laptop. I would say replace the laptop. It's less expensive, especially with the deals out there right now.

I need to buy one motherboard for toshiba satellite 1805- s254 i want answer to angel.armijo@gmail.com about price and shipping. thanks


I recommend that you do not buy an old board.

This laptop appears to be over 10 years old.

My expert advice. Buy another laptop. You will be happier in the end. Spend $200-$350 on www.ebay.com

There are many deals.

Best of Luck,

Toshiba sat. 1805-S254


I am currently using the laptop model that you described. Go to toshiba support, click download, click portables, click satellite, and where it says: choose model, click show older models. Type in your satellite model on the search bar, (1805-S254) and click 1805-S254 in the results and hit GO. Now, the second thing from the top of the list of drivers says: BIOS. click the plus. Find: ACPI Flash BIOS version 1.10 for Satellite 1800/1805-S204/254/274 (v1.10; 10-23-2001; 671K)
and click it. Download the file and run it. Now follow the directions to make a BIOS floppy disk. After the disk is created, restart the computer. When the screen that says: Toshiba comes on, hit F12 to boot from a different device. Then it gives you a bunch of options. Hit the letter on the keyboard that tells the computer to boot from floppy disk. Then it should erase your current bios and rewrite the old one in. DO NOT update the BIOS! In the new BIOS, toshiba has a file that DOWNCLOCKS your processor. This is what makes your computer run so slow. Now people have complained that computer has overheated and shutdown but since i've downgraded the BIOS, it's been running just fine! Hope this helps! If it doesn't, email me at: fneoh7832@live.com.
