Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite M205-S7452 Notebook ?

I dropped my laptop and now when I start it up it says ''Windows has encountered a problem communicating with a device coonected to your computer...contact your hardware manager.'' What do I do? Is is completely broken or is it fixable?


Answers :

Find out what hardware it is talking about if you can. Even if the hardware in question is broken, a lot of the parts for laptops are modular i.e. you can replace them without having to replace the entire motherboard. HP laptops are probably the best at this beucase their motherboard is only a giant controller, as opposed to having every single device built into the motherboard. It would be best if you told us the type of laptop you have.

\015\012There is also the chance that the drop caused the hard drive to become damaged, in which case, restoring the damaged files would be the quickest way to fix it. I would not recommend trusting that hard drive anymore though, I would get a backup of some sort going, even if it doesnt look like it is the hard drive.
