Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite A105 Notebook ?

A whole crapload of problems.

\015 I sent my laptop in to get the screen in to get fixed, and now there are a whole bunch of problems. The symptoms are:\015\012\015\012*Sometimes, when I turn it on, it doesn't start up, it just stays black.\015\012*Sometimes, if it is moved abruptly, it will shut down. The screen will go blank, but it will still be on. The light indicating that it is using memory stops blinking.\015\012*Sometimes, it'll do the same thing as above without being moved. It just randomly goes black.\015\012*Sometimes, it will restart on its own.\015\012*Sometimes, it freezes for no apparent reason.\015\012*The battery only lasts 30 minutes tops; before I sent it in, it lasted an hour and a half.\015\012\015\012Things I've done to try to fix it are:\015\012*Reinstall windows, which worked for a little bit.\015\012*Open up my case, take everything out, and put it all back again, which helped for about 2 weeks, then it started acting up again.\015\012\015\012I have a feeling that instead of fixing my screen, they switched out my hard drive with another laptop.\015

Answers :

Not a hard drive issue I'm afraid. Sounds like they switched the whole system out.\015\012So you disassembled the laptop and put it back together?\015\012That's more than most of these guys can do.\015\012You've got a loose lcd cable, or memory is going bad, or there's a short in the case-palm rest area. \015\012All these are common with this model.\015\012Good luck

For the past week, when my Sceptre LCD monitor goes to sleep after inactivity, it won't restart immediately. The blue LED blinks every second or so; eventually, the screen begins to flash the display, and then a few minutes after that, will finally turn on. Sometimes the whole process takes five minutes, sometimes an hour. How can I fix this problem? (I can't find the documentation to say exactly what model this is; if that's important, I can look again.)

Hello, I am working on my friend's computer. It is a Dell Dimension 4600. His comp crashed while removing virii and I had to reload XP, so I upgraded him to XP Pro while I was at it.
