Hi. good day i have the problem with my charger.it

If you're sure the adaptor isn't powering (recharging) the battery then you will have to replace it. You can do a search and go to toshiba's site to order one, or through a local shop, or you may be able to locate a generic that will work. If you go for a generic though, make sure it matches the laptop. Not all chargers are the same. Also make sure it isn't the connection on the laptop itself that is bad. Some models of toshiba had the tendency for the jack connections to break inside (soldiering etc)

When I turn on my Toshiba laptop the keyboard will


have you pressed any of the top keys by mistake as one of them will i believe turn off the monitor/screen

maybe have a look at your top keys and find one that looks like a blank screen and try pressing it or pressing it with the fn key as well

also you could try to start up in safe mode which is probably in the f8 option at start up
and try to do a system restore

or go to device manager
scroll down to find the display and un install it
then restart and hopefully all will be good

or press f8 on start up and try to choose last good know configuration and see if that does anything for you

if you still have a problem please come back to us telling us what operating system your are running

many thanks

How to factory reset?

Hello and thank you for using Fixya.

First, You will need to make the recovery discs which are created using the built in program from your computer. Copy them onto a blank CD/DVD. Now insert the newly created restore disc to restore your factory settings by rebooting from the hard drive. Turn off the PC. Wait a minute. Now hold down the 0 (zero) key and push the power button once. A screen message will appear after a few seconds. Choose to reboot from HDD. (or you can choose to reboot with recovery disks using the DVD drive.) Follow the instructions. It will take about two hours to reinstall your operating system.

If you have any more question feel free to ask

I have toshiba L505 computer with corrupted

Hi, welcome to FixYa.

What the last activities that you have done with your laptop? If you haven't installed anything or did anything that would cause a computer virus gets into your computer, then most probably it's hardware failure. Try to contact the nearest Toshiba support near you.

If you did something like installing new software or tried to run some suspicious program from internet, either from email or website, you probably have become a victim of malicious software, either virus or wom. Try to install a good antivirus from the web. I suggest you to try one of these:

1. Kaspersky Virus Removal Tools, get it from: http://support.kaspersky.com/viruses/avptool2010?level=2

2. Norman Malware Cleaner: http://www.norman.com/support/support_tools/malware_cleaner/

I hope this can help.

Your keyboard's region layout for your computer may have changed somehow. Here's how to change it:

1. Click on Start Menu
2. Type in the bar that says "Search programs and files": Region and Language
3. Click on Keyboards and Languages tab, then click on Change Keyboards
4. In the Default input language tab, select your layout (probably English United States - US)

If it is not listed, click on Add and scroll down to your desired language and layout.

Best of luck!!

You may have it disabled. Press and hold the "fn" key then and press the key that has a symbol for the touchpad on it. For my satellite it is the F9 key. Then give it a shot. It should work.

Hi,Thanks for using fixya,

Remove the battery, and unplug the A/C adapter and hold down the power button, for 40 seconds.Soon your laptop will reset,and run well.Now you will install all the accessories and start.

If the problem is same ,think your lcd has been defected,and need to take the risk for disassemble.And change the CCFL lamp or or the Inverter,Every LCD has period off life time . i think you have crossed.Folow the below link for detail about assemble ,

Before assemble try to know few things.

In Toshiba notebooks most screws are marked. Here are some examples:
F4 - flat-head screw 4mm long
B6 - button-head screw 6mm long
F16 - flat-head screw 16mm long
B8 - button-head screw 8mm long

When you are taking apart a laptop you'll have to deal with lots of screws. Keep everything organized.

To apart take a paper Mark all the screw position and used cello tape and paste every screw..

I can't turn the wireless on?

Hi - With some laptops there are a few places you need to check to see if the wifi is enabled.

1st - check to see if you have a wifi switch. Usually found on the front at one of the corners or on the side of the laptop. Make sure the switch is "On". It may also be a button on the top of the keyboard.

2nd - make sure the wireless is "enabled" in your OS. If you are using windows, go to Control Panel then Network Connections. Make sure that where the wireless card is shown as a connection it says enabled.

3rd - If the second does not work sometimes certain wifi cards will use their own utility or program to operate the wireless card functionality. This can most likely be found in All Programs. Hard to say what it would be called unless we know the type of wifi card. Try the 1st two options, if they dont work, try this. Find the program, open it and make sure that it is enabled from there.

If none of this works, try restarting the laptop.
