Satellite L855-14H Motherboard replacement.

Q: Satellite L855-14H Motherboard replacement.

I bought Toshiba Satellite L855 - 14 H four or three years ago, It was working all fine but few months ago my video chip stopped working.
Local services offered to heat up video chip , but I don't want that, I need long term sollution.
So I need to replace motherboard, but the problem is that I can't find any thrust worthy place to buy it. I have searched on ebay and other online shops but they seem fishy. Those video chips might be "heated" already. Is it possible to by motherboard directly from Toshiba? I don't need anything else, my CPU, RAM, HDD, fan , everything else is working, except the video chip.
I would be thankful if any of you could recommend me where should I look for motherboard replacement :)

For more information I bought the laptop in Latvia, Product key is : PSKAEE-00UooTG3 ,
Code on motherboard is : DK10FG - 6050A2509901 - MB - A02

Hi everyone, i got notebook that have dead motherboard.
its detail
Toshiba Satellite L750
Part no: PSK2YA-0T902V
SERIAL: 20155402W
DC 19V- 4.74A
motherboard no: A000081570 ZB316754W
i checked online and there are many mobos with like A000081450, A000082100, A000080830 and about 10-20 different ones.
All of them saying they are meant for Toshiba Satellite L750 L755!
These are different numbers to suggest that they have different configuration related to GPU and VRAM or their brand like NVIDA or AMD types, i guess.
My question, are they all meant to fit physically in all Toshiba Satellite L750 ?? have any one got experience of such mobo replacement with another board.
Will appreciate if someone can offer me any advice, as exactly same mobo not available for me, so i am thinking to put another similar one.

Hi all,

I need to change the chasis of my L855-132 (PSKACE-03P007CE) and I don't succeed to find the part numbers needed. Does anyone know the part numbers of the palmrest and bottomcase of this model? Ain't there online any list or map of the laptop components?

I guess some models may only change in some tech specs that would not imply to have a different chasis. Could anyone tell me which are the closests models to L1855-132? That may increase the chances to find new parts.

Hey There Guys. Last Time I have some problem. One day I was going downstairs. There was a water and I was holding my laptop. But I slipped down and my laptop fell down from the stairs.

Hi all,

I've had this laptop nearly 4 years, or is it 5? This morning, I woke up to find it was no longer charging the battery and the computer doesn't recognize an AC adapter plugged into it.

The computer itself works fine. I am not able to update BIOS because it wants me to plug in to AC power to do so, so I had to use nearly all of my remaining battery power to back up the data onto a portable external drive.

Changing outlets did not help. It's the same AC adapter that came with the computer and worked fine all this time.

The battery is now about 7% and I turned it off to save what little juice is left.

Not sure how to address this issue from here onward.

Thanks for any help or input.

Greetings friends,
the problem goes like this: I have a TOSHIBA satellite, L855-12N, series notebook.

After updrading to Win 10, some of my keys (a,n, enter) were not working initially.
If I wait for some time, they would start work later.
I find that if I keep pressing a button, (e.g. the button "a") for a long time, I see that it gradually starts to respond, then stop again, then respond - stop, until finally it works OK.
I tried to upgrade the drivers, unistall then reinstall them, but it does not seem to work.
Does anyone know what is happening, or have a suggestion?
Thank you.

A:Satellite L855 - 12N - Keyboard problem after upgrade to Windows 10

Are you 100% it's a Windows 10 issue?
Sounds more like a hardware problem, keyboard may need replacing.

Go into the BIOS and test the keyboard in there.
If it happens in the BIOS as well then replace the keyboard.

If it is a software problem, try uninstalling the touchpad driver via Control Panel, then reinstall it through Windows Update.

I changed to Linux two years ago, and I can't use the Catalyst Centre or offical AMD gpu driver. I wasn't able to upgrade it when I had Windows 8 either (the display was broken into stripes), and I had to dowload the ones made available by Toshiba. I was told back then (2013) that they needed to be "tweaked" for my laptop.

So I would like to know:

1. Does Toshiba offer any support for this problem in Linux?
2. If not, can Toshiba at least explain why they need to tweak AMD drivers? Do they modify the hardware?
3. What exactly needs to be done to get AMD drivers working in a Toshiba laptop in Windows and/or Linux?

Brand new laptop running windows 8.1 Touchpad works for about 30 seconds after windows boots up then stops. Tried downloading latest drivers from Toshiba site but it didn't fix the problem. Tried the touchpad function keys but that is not the issue. Called Toshiba support and they suggested sending it in for a factory reset.

I also have a problem with AMD graphics going split screen after computer goes into a sleep state. Downloaded and installed latest drivers for this on advice of Tech support but not fixed either.

I'm a bit concerned as a search shows both these problems not uncommon and iv'e spent a lot of time copying over data and installing software, don't want to lose it and lose time waiting for factory reset if I have to send ot back.

Anyone have any ideas?

(Just posting this here so people in the future can find it.) I replaced my motherboard and just wanted to leave this here for future reference to some poor soul who has to do the same.
If you replace the motherboard on your Dell Studio XPS 8000, (service tag 3L8DHK1) and you need a new motherboard you can use an INTEL DQ57TM, it's compatible and I did a successful transplant. Your processor is an INTEL Core-i5 750 CPU 2.67GHZ it uses a SOCKET LGA1156. It uses DDR3 memory.
Once you take out your old motherboard and disconnect all those usb and audio wires and the power button wires. To hook up your USB front jacks, audio jacks etc.... here's which blocks go where:
Wires from the audio jacks and usb ports go into these colored block connectors, and those connectors get plugged into those little rows of pins/jumpers called Internal Headers. Every motherboard manual tells you about them. Grab the manual for your new motherboard and it'll tell you where your audio1, usb1, usb2, usb3, usb4 Header connectors are they look like 2 rows and 5 collumns of short little pins. (They almost always have 1 or 2 pins missing on purpose.)
the wires leading to a YELLOW BLOCK gets plugged into the audio1 header on your new motherboard, it's for audio jacks on top of the computer
wires with the WHITE BLOCK gets plugged into the usb3 headers on your motherboard (they are for the usb jacks on the very top of the computer tower)

I am currently having a problem on my computer (Satellite U840-10R R?f?rence : PSU4WE-00E017FR).

The SSD part (32go) of my hard drive seems to be broken. I can't enable the SSD fonction in the Intel software or I experience big troubles so I disabled it. However, I still can use my computer because the HDD part (500go) is ok and has the system on it.

My question: is it possible to take the whole drive out of my computer and put a new SSD one instead ?

How does it look ? Is the whole thing looking like a classic 2.5 HDD ?

Which kind of interface would I find inside ? (Sata 3 ???)

A:HDD replacement on Satellite U840-10R

I don't know how old your machine is but if the warranty is still valid I think you should contact Toshiba service and ask for replacement. Valid warranty will cover the costs.

Anyway, this 32GB SSD is with mSATA slot type Multi-level cell (MLC). On Google you can see how it looks like. Generally speaking replacement should not be problematic but if don't have experience with notebook disassembling you should not do it alone.

Fact is that SSD is placed directly under the cover and placed between RAM and WLAN card.

After 2 recovery using F8 key and one defrag I managed to make it work again,but Toshiba told me that my hard disk is dying and that I'll have to replace it as soon as possible.Toshiba is definitly too expensive (280EUR for same HD!), my HD is HDD SATA 2.5 750GB divided onto 2 partitions 349 & 348GB.
Capacity : 750 Go

Interfaces : 1 x SATA 3 Gb-s

I found a HDD 2.5 Seagate/Samsung Momentus 1TB 5400 rpm SATA-300 ST1000LM024 ?72EUR, I ask to the seller if compatible with my Satellite.

What is the best way to save my OS knowing that I would like to save the factory recovery option integrated on my HD that I used to restore
my laptop using F8 key.

For info : I bought a crucial ssd for my Qosmio x870-13v last year, they gave me a serial for Acronis software. I used it once to create an image of my Qosmio under windows 10 but the result was very bad when I tried to used it back, I had to make a factory restoration (it's Toshiba itself who changed my HD using the image I provided them). Then, Acronis image, I'm not very confident with this software.

Any advice welcome,

A:Satellite Pro U400-153 - Replacement HDD


Theoretically you can install every HDD with SATA interface and 2.5? form factor in Satellite Pro U400.

If you install a new HDD in Satellite Pro U400 you have to use the old HDD case/holder to install it.
I don?t know what you mean exactly with that but maybe you can upload a photo to make it clearer.

Last but not least it doesn?t matter what company it comes from. You can use a HDD from Toshiba or another company too like Western Digital, Seagate, etc.

Does anyone know a link / an instruction on:

(1) where can I get a new keyboard for Z930?
(2) can I replace it myself? If yes, how?


A:Keyboard replacement on Satellite Z930

I don?t know what the problem is with your keyboard but I presume that this new notebook model has valid warranty so I strongly recommend you to contact nearest Toshiba service provider and ask for help. If keyboard is defective they should exchange it for free.

The whole situation with hardware parts is pretty complicated. I don?t know where do you live and I cannot search whole web to find right link for you and you can do this alone. Google a bit around and check if you can find some online store in your country where you can order it.

Theoretically you can do this but I don?t think you should do this alone. Notebook disassembling can be pretty complicated and without maintenance manuals very risky. Small mistake and you can damage something, especially small plastic parts and plastic holders.

Contact nearest Toshiba service, talk with them and ask for some help or good advice.

I would like to know how I can replace my PC (Satellite Z830-10T) in Japan.

Two years ago I bought the PC in UK and now I'm living in Japan.
The battery of the PC is now running out and not recharged any more, so I think I need to replace the battery.
Then, I asked to Toshiba support in Japan to replace the battery but they declined my offer, because they deal with only products sold in Japan.

Could anyone tell me how I can replace the battery of my PC in Japan?
Do I send the Customer Center in UK? If so, what is the address? How does it cost?
Or, it might be necessary to think to replace the battery by myself. In that case, could anyone tell me what the battery product number is?

Thank you in advance.


A:Satellite Z830-10T - Battery Replacement

It is not easy to give you a good advice what you can do. Problem is that your notebook must be disassembled and this should be done by authorized personal only.

Maybe you can order battery from UK and ask ASP in Japan to exchange it. It should not be problematic. I can just imagine that they have problem to order original parts.

Try to order it in UK or maybe you have someone who can do this for you and send it to you.

I bought myself a Satellite Pro R50-B-10V a few weeks ago and I'm prette happy with the overall performance.
But the image quality of the screen is not as good as on other notebooks so I have decided to replace it with a different screen model.

Are there any informations of the screen available? Can it be replaced with a different screen model (with better contrast, higher Luminescence etc.), or do I have to stick with the same screen panel?

Does somebody knows how to replace the keyboard to a satellite u840-u by myself? It looks to be just glued but don't know for sure. Also, my keyboard is not backlit, does it would be if replaced by one of the U series backlighted?

A:Satellite U840-10U - keyboard replacement


As far as I know some Satellite U840 models has been equipped with backlight keyboard.
But from my knowledge the backlight keyboard requires additional power connector (CN20).

I guess not all U840 motherboards would support such connector and therefore the backlight keyboard upgrade would not be possible.

Regarding the keyboard removal:
Yes I think the keyboard is pasted to top case by double adhesive. If you would disassemble the keyboard from the top case, the keyboard would deform and could not be used again.

In my opinion you should not try to remove anything. You would void the warranty and could damage other parts. I think such disassembling procedure should be done by authorized service engineer.
