It's a White wire, and a Black wire.

I have no idea why it's named a COAX cable (Coaxial cable) since there are TWO separate wires,
and no shielding on the wires. (Just plastic insulation over the wire)

need bios password for toshiba satellite l305 s5919

Toshiba... | Answered on Nov 21, 2013

Here's how to reset your password:
  1. First reboot Windows XP in safe mode by re-starting the computer and pressing F8 repeatedly as the computer starts up.
  2. Then (in safe mode) click Start and then click Run. In the open box type "control userpasswords2" (without the quotes, of course)
  3. You will now have access to all the user accounts, including the administrators account and will be able to reset the lost password.
  4. Just click the administrators user account (or the target user's account), and then click Reset Password. You will need to add a new password in the New password and the Confirm new password boxes, and confirm by clicking OK.
  5. All done, you have recovered the lost password
Hope you'll have it resolved soon :-)

Theencryption key secures your data from unauthorized access. The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key. The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings. To connect to your wireless router, configure the router'swireless settings ie SSID, plus the WPAor WPA2 encryption key and then configure wireless cards in the laptops and orcomputers with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktopcomputers can communicate with your wireless router.

Your keyboard is bad - the Toshiba Accupoint mouse portion of it, at least - just replace the entire keyboard. Access is easy: remove the thin plastic cover strip above the keyboard, then two screws that hold the keyboard down, lift it up slightly, and disconnect the keyboard connector. eBay is the best source for these parts, and replacements should cost no more than $20 delivered.

It's flat and circular like a watch battery or a hockey puck.

The brown wire is the bluetooth antenna. The bluetooth socket/compartment is the smallest rect. shaped door at the bottom. Bluetooth equipped models should have a bluetooth sticker affixed to their bottoms (silver colored sticker) - they're rare.

Most Toshiba 6100s come standard with wireless cards installed. If you're unsure, just turn on the WiFI antenna switch (near its SD card slot) and see if the WiFi access LED lights up (the WiFi LED is the rightmost LED on the front of the unit) -- if it lights up, then you've got a stock Wireless card in your system.

Email me if you can't determine which card you have.

There's a couple of things you can try here. First I would connect the laptop to an external monitor. If that works, then check to make sure that it is set to internal screen usage by pressing the function key and holding it while pressing the f5 key. If this works then problem solved. However if you get an external screen but the laptop screen still does not turn on then the problem is internal to the laptop you need to get a tech to look at it.

Next, if the above procedure does not produce any results, take off the battery, take off the memory, press the power key a couple of times, replace the ram and the plug in the ac adapter and see if it works. Replace the battery and see if it works. If it works without the battery and not with it then your problem is your battery.

Since you are getting the battery and power lights to turn on, I doubt that it would be your dc jack.

try removing the battery and just use plug power only if it boots normally then change the battery and the change the power supply unit as well I would just start with the power supply unit first then see if the battery charges up if not the battery is bad replace it. Now if the computer will not start with the battery removed then you have a power supply issue.
Change and replace it. Hope this helps. Also when computer lap top get hot they will shut down to protect the computer wait and let it cool down then try to restart your computer. If this does work and the lap top restarts normally get a fan cooler that is USB powered and the lap top sits on top of it. Also make sure the fan is running and is not stopped. Clean and dust it out once in awhile. I hope this assists you with your problem. John

You can change the boot up device order in the BIOS configuration.

Toshiba... | Answered on Oct 10, 2010

Start taking your laptop apart piece by piece and test it after each removed component:
1. Remove the hard drive and test the laptop.
2. Remove the DVD drive and test the laptop.
3. Remove the wireless card and test the laptop.
4. Unplug the display panel from the motherboard/video card and test the laptop.
Continue taking it apart until you have only three major components connected: motherboard (with video card), processor, and memory. If you still experience the same problem, most likely it's bad motherboard.
By the way, before you start, try reconnecting the memory module. If you have two modules installed, try removing them one by one and test the laptop with each one separately.

If yous has a BIOS password (password = _) when you turn the laptop on, then the only fix is to buy a parallel port password removal key (they go for as low as $10 on eBay), or you can make your own (schematics are available for free on the Internet), then plug the key into the laptop's parallel port, turn it on, and the CMOS password will be removed. There is no shorting of pins or removal of CMOS battery for this model.
