How can a remove a stuck Screw inside of a Toshiba Satellite L455-S5989 Laptop. The screw that is stuck holds down a PCIe mini Wireless Card.


Take the laptop apart techgeek564.

You Definitely do Not want it roaming around in there, to short out the laptop.

Here is the Service Manual, (Free),

http://www.tim.id.au/blog/tims-laptop-service-manuals/#toc-toshiba

Go to the 11th line down.
The one that starts with > Satellite A10
In this listing of files go down to the second line, (Starts with > C650D), and then go across to >
L450. Click on L450.

[The Toshiba Satellite L455-S5989 is part of the Toshiba Satellite L450 series ]

After you click on L450 it will take about 5 seconds to see the first page, and additional time to fully download.
(Took 45 seconds for me just now)
Suggest you let the file download all the way before looking through it.

You are not permanently downloading the file. If you want to save a copy to your computer, and do not know how, post in a Comment.

[This way you won't have to download again. You can also burn a copy of to a CD disk for safekeeping, and having access anytime you want.
Further, you can delete the file from your harddrive after burning a copy, and save harddrive space ]

A) ALL power removed from the laptop. AC adapter (Charger) and Battery.

B) Buy and use an ESD wrist strap. Connect the alligator clip to a good ground source.
(Electro Static Discharge)

Your body carries Static electricity, and Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit) the hardware components inside a computer.
The ESD wrist strap will relieve your body of Static, and safeguard your laptop from Static shock

Average price of an ESD wrist strap is around $3 to $6. Much cheaper than a new laptop.

C) Use a multi-compartment container for the various screws you will remove.
Mark each compartment for the area the screws come out of.
There may be as many as 60 screws, and 12 different types.
Do Not mix them up!

You can use a clean egg carton, and mark the egg holders.

D) Make a record as you disassemble. Make drawings and notes. Use a camera, or videocam if available.
(Use Good lighting)
It's nice to have a record to refer back to in case you get interrupted.

sounds like it's missing a power source. Re-check to ensure both a power source and cable are firmly in place.

Toshiba satellite a205-s5831 Received kernel data error. Hard drive has clicking noises. Programs ran slow. Chkdsk running now for over 15 hours and only on 11%..preplacing bad clusters.


When a harddrive starts clicking it's on it's way out.
Buy a new harddrive and at the same time get a USB to laptop harddrive adapter. You can reinstall XP with the recovery disks that came with your machine ans then slave your old drive to your laptop and recover your personal files.
If you really want to get technicalbuy an Apricorn housing: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817155602
And two new harddrives, fit one new harddrive to the Apricorn housing and try to install the EZgig cloning software to your dying Windows. You can clone your existing Windows install to the new harddrive in the Apricorn housing and then move that drive to your laptop, the second new harddrive can then be fitted to the Apricorn housing and used as an external harddrive.
EZgig comes with the Apricorn housing and you could even go so far as to create a clone of your Windows install to the new external harddrive. The Apricorn housings are excellent, they are small enough to carry in your laptop case and all they need for power is a USB port.

Hi help46,

I've read your issue a couple times and I think I'm going to need more information from you.

First of all, changing the hard drive out isn't going to do anything to the BIOS unless you're using an ancient PC (like a Compaq DeskPro) that stores the BIOS information on the hard drive itself.

Are you using a desktop or laptop computer? Please reply with detailed information on the make and model of the computer and I can help you more.
