Question about Toshiba Satellite P205-S6287 Notebook PC

2 Answers

New Laptop I'm fixing to buy a laptop. I go to college fall of next year. I want to be able to use the internet on my laptop at home right now. I also want to be able to use it other places, and then when I go off to college. . The laptop I'm getting has all the wireless networking capabilities. How do I need to go about setting the internet up right now? Can I use a wireless router, and still use the internet on my laptop along ways away from home? If not, tell me exactly what I need to by, and what I need to do.

    OK, thanks.

    I've been trying to figure that out for hours through several questions.

    You were the first one to actually give me a straight up answer though.

Yes you can use it anywhere. If you have a wireless router in your home you can use the internet there and use it at other wireless locations as well like the library.

I have a 3 year old Toshiba Tecra M4 Tablet Laptop, and my colors are inverted, anything that should come up black, comes up red. Text is okay, but images just don't look right


It would be oen of three things... in order of cost;

1. LCD Invertor has gone bad
2. SCREEN has gone bad
3. Motherboard has gone bad

In either of the three it would most likely take a toshiba tech to pinpoint exactly the problem and do the repair. Although if you are handy enough you can get the parts and repair it yourself.

IBM T60 problem


Take it back to them since they are supposed to be taking care of the problems. When you pick it up, before you leave turn it on and let it run while you use a few programs to make sure all is well with it. If not, don't leave with it. Give it right back to them and tell them to get it right and give you a loaner until they fix it. Sadly, there is nothing we can do for you since it seems to be hardware related.

Toshiba laptop will not turn on, screen is completely black


Don't pay attention to your uncle. I had the same problem. Blue ring, power lights on. Sometimes the laptop would come up after a few minutes and then would freeze. It is a power problem. The AC jack may be broken and, most likely, you need to get the MAX1632A power controller (a 40-48 pin black IC next to the AC jack) resoldered too (get someone qualified to do it, with the right soldering station for surface mount work).

If all you're looking for is wireless internet within your home, then you can simply buy a wireless router off the shelf from Best Buy. However, a wireless router will only provide a range of a couple hundred feet, perhaps a couple of hundred yards. Essentially, it only provides internet access at a single fixed location. I'm getting the impression you're looking for something more.

If you're looking to have internet access wherever you go, no matter how far from home, you're going to need a subscription to wireless internet from a cellular provider such as AT&T or Sprint. They sell both internet access as well as the cards used to connect to the network, so check out their websites to explore your options.

Wireless not working...


If you want to use the College wireless system, then you will have to conatct the administration and they will point you in the right direction.

Although the service is normally free for students, you need to have the IP, subnet and gateway assigned to the laptop to access the service. They may also request your Mac address from your laptop. This is just the unique identifier to help protect the network from outside users.

Even check with a few of the others you will see at lunch using theirs, they will be happy to point you in the right direction.

Wireless netowrking issue with the laptop


Try to configure the a static IP address for the laptop on the router. This is done buy finding the LAN MAC address(computer) on attached devices, then designating it a default IP.
