Toshiba C55t-A5218

I have the Toshiba Satellite C55t-A5218. I couldn't get windows to come up, but later did. However when the laptop was doing a restart, it died and now it wont power up at all (with adapter or battery. Any suggestions. The adapter is producing 19 volts. I have also completed an ohm test on the power adapter cable in the laptop, all is well there. It wont power up with the battery plugged in. But I am uncertain if the battery is charged. Also I removed the memory to see if it was corrupt, nothing so far.  My email is oteydarren1@gmail.com

Toshiba laptop charger

I now have 2 Toshiba laptops, a Portege M300 and a Portege M600. My M600 is secondhand, and didn't come with a charger, however i discovered that the charger port is smaller than the charger port on the M300. Will i have to buy a new charger or is there anything i can do? new Toshiba chargers are, I believe, AUD$96.

Transformable Toshiba 815T PB phones

LinkThese phones are a promo for a show called Ketai Sousakan 7 that seems to be about transforming phones. *shrug*Now if they can just get those little missiles and machine guns on them like in the Transformers movie, THEN they would really kick ass. Or if they actually moved. or anything besides usable toys. Still an interesting concept.

replace or fix power cord for toshiba laptop?

I have a Toshiba laptop that is only 1 year old and the power cord just simply stopped working after it fell to the floor from off the table. (adapter not the laptop). There aren't any breaks or tears in the cord. Do I need to replace it and is it okay to replace with a compatible power adapter I found on prontocharger.com for half the price that Toshiba's asking? Is it possible to fix the cord?

Toshiba has stopped making incandescent bulbs after 120 years

Lighting has taken another step towards energy efficiency as Toshiba stopped making incandescent bulbs yesterday. It will now be focusing more on other lighting such as LEDs. This is all great news as incandescents wasted a lot of energy as heat instead of lighting. Now with a greater focus on the energy-efficient options we can expect to see quality and efficiency improve as prices come down.

Laptop Keyboard

After a spill necessitated replacing the keyboard on my Satellite A135, about 1/2 of the keys, mainly on the left side of the keyboard, don't work. I can't seem to press the plastic ribbon cable of the new one into the connector far enough for it to engage all the pins. I tried reattaching the old keyboard, but can't press that cable in far enough either. There seems to be white mineralization on some pins in the connector. It's a very thin space, and barely accessible. How can I safely clean it off so the cable fits properly and makes contact with all the pins?

Toshiba Dvd Player Problem

This lady gave me an older dvd player (Toshiba SD-2150) and she had it hooked up at her house, but the cd started skipping about half way in, and it would contiunously cut out for 10 seconds then resume playback and then cut out again and so on and so forth. As you'll see in the pictures, I've taken it apart down to the laser assembly (only took me 10 minutes incase you're wondering). The apparent problem to me is something is wrong with the gear assembly that moves the laser head. When I turn it by hand, it moves freely for about half a turn then it feels like the gear is catching on something, and if I turn it harder it keeps moving, it's not stripped, but it almost "feels" like theres a hump in the gear or something. I keep looking at the gear and nothing looks wrong with the teeth or anything! I was just going to put 3-in-1 oil on it and see how that helps and put it back together.  Does anyone have any suggestions? *********UPDATE********* I tried many things with various tools I had sitting here to try and straighten out the one tooth on the gear with no success. However with the little bit of melting/bending I did and the 3-in-1 oil, I got it to catch on the gear less easily. After re-installing the optical assembly and testing it on my stereo with the cover off, it appears not to skip anymore, DVD's too. However, I'm still not confident in how long this "repair" is going to work. The best solution I think is to replace the smallest gear on the motor, but I cannot find one close enough.

This evening I thought the fan had a slightly different tone to it and was louder. Also, the speed didn't seem consistent; it seemed to move up and down randomly. Should I be concerned?

Thanks for any and all insight! *Update I counted the number of pins in the current monitor's harness that plugs into the laptop, there are 25 pins.  Hope this helps!

I have an old Toshiba satellite laptop with a bad motherboard; is there anything I can do with it?

The original problem was that the laptop wasn't getting power. The shop I took it to said it was the motherboard and that it wasn't worth the price of a replacement. So, I'm not 100% positive that this is the actual problem, since i declined repair, but that's what they said. Everything else is in good working condition as far as I know (including the power supply and battery--we tested those). I'm now running snow leopard on a macbook--I was hoping that the screen might be turned into an external monitor without using the motherboard, but i've seen all the answers about needing a controller and all, so I don't expect that. Still, getting any use from this thing would be great. Any ideas?

I updated the BIOS version on my Toshiba laptop but I'm not sure if it worked. Please help.

Hello I have a Toshiba laptop and I noticed that I had somethings that needed updating.  It suggested a BIOS update to 3.5 and one to 3.6.  I typed some command code in and said I had BIOS 1.9.  I have had a few problems with my computer lately and thought this may help.  I chose the update to 3.6 and attempted to follow the steps listed.  It performed the update and restarted.  My next steps said, "While the "Toshiba" LOGO is displayed, press the F2 function key to start BIOS Setup.  Check the version of BIOS and press the f9 function key then enter to load setup details.  Press the F10 function key then Enter to save settings and exit.  The computer will automatically reboot."  The problem is that when the Toshiba logo popped up it immediately disappeared (before I could press f2) and the blue windows screen started to come up.  I waited a few seconds but the Toshiba screen never came back up.  I waited a bit more and the computer was loading like normal.  I figured I needed to do the function keys like instructed but it was on the blue windows start screen not the Toshiba screen. I restarted my computer and at the Toshiba logo I pressed f2 really quickly. A black box with white writing (command box, script box?) popped up and then disappeared so I never got to press the f9 or f10 keys.  Everything appears to be funcitioning well.  The only difference is that my homepage changed from Google to Toshiba (which I set back to Google) and for some reason when I open the internet it automatically opens 2 Google tabs instead of one.  I googled to see if I messed anything up with the BIOS update but can't figure anything out.  I found info on how to check the version and when I typed in msinfo32 it said I had BIOS 3.6 since 2012! My first code that I typed was NOT msinfo 32 and that code said I had version 1.9 prior to me doing this.   I'm not sure if I already had version 3.6 and the different code gave the updated version OR if I updated it and it shows an older date (the update was done today 2.24.13 so I'm not sure why it shows the date of 2012)  Does anyone know about this?  Did I mess something up?  Is it ok that I didn't do the f2, f9, f10 steps correctly?  By the way, as you can probably tell, I'm not "that" computer savvy so please explain it to me in simple terms.  Also I didn't know this would be complex prior to starting.  I thought it would be a regular update like my anti virus software etc.  I read (after the fact) that I should only update this if I was sure I could complete it correctly, but I had no reason to think I wouldn't be able to correctly update it.  Thanks for reading and I appreciate any help/advice you can give. Updated to add:  I was able to fix the 2 tab problems, now only 1 IE tab opens when I open a webpage.

Wifi Home Network connection problems

Hello, I have a Toshiba portege m900 laptop. After a couple of years of connecting properly, it suddenly cannot connect to my home network. It just says Connections are available and displays the home network, but when I click connect, it eventually returns with "windows can't connect to ". Other wifi capable devices in the house connect normally, just as they have done before. The laptop can still connect to other networks that I have access to.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           When I start the troubleshooter it returns with 1) Windows cant connect to the hidden network , 2) problem with wireless adapter or access point 3) A network cable is not properly plugged and may be broken. I have been downloading large-sized files before the time I can't connect. Does it have anything to do with my sudden disconnection? Thank you for your help!
