Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite A105 Notebook ?

Satellite A105 acts like it will start, but won't display.

\015 The laptop turns on, but when it is on nothing appears on the screen. I at first thought that this was a problem with the screen, but found that the wireless light still stays on when I turn the wireless switch on and off. Is there anything I can try before I have to take it in to the shop?\015

Answers :

You can try flashing the bios, but this is something that should only be done by someone who does this sort of thing.
\015\012Satellites are wonderful little computers (I have three myself) however, they have a rather consistant problem with the ACPI technology. Sometimes this results in a computer that starts, but stops before you can use anything. Updating the bios should correct the problem, if this is it. This particular problem is also common when the incorrect operating system is installed (installing XP on a machine designed for Vista; and even more often, the other way around.)
\015\012One time, this symptom occurred when the system had collected too much dust in the cooling fins; so be sure and blow this out before you go to the shop as well.
\015\012And, you might benefit from this link.
\015\012good luck
