Replace Toshiba M55 CMOS battery

Mrs. mysterious1der's laptop (M55-S331) won't keep time accurately. I've torn apart and repaired (board swaps, not actual board level repair) dozens of Dell laptops, but this is my first Toshiba. Lo and behold, the CMOS battery is soldered to the motherboard. Do I either have to unsolder it and resolder a new one, or get a new motherboard? [more inside]

My Aero Glass Is Temporarily Half-Empty!

So I've upgraded to Vista, for better or for worse. I've got a Toshiba Satellite A105-S361, though, and the "hot, new" Aero Glass feature isn't working. Am I wasting my time trying to enable this and/or is my computer even capable of rendering Aero? I've checked everywhere, to no avail.

Does this laptop seem cheap?

My laptop screen wants to escape -- What do I do?

My laptop screen is separating from the rest of the computer! It looks like one of the two hinges is hanging on for dear life, and I'm concerned -- if it gets much worse, it will be detached on that side. Is there anything I can do? [more inside]

Noisy toshiba fan

I've had a Toshiba 5205-S119 laptop for a little over a year now. About a month ago the system fan started to periodically make a grinding noise (or as one person on usenet described it "like running a matchstick up and down a comb"). Is there an easy way to make this stop without opening up the laptop case?

Can I recover this Toshiba e310 that will not finish booting?

I have a Toshiba e310, that mysteriously stopped starting up when I turned it on. It's not completely dead, it comes up with the default bootscreen and then just sits there. Windows XP detects an unknown device, and that's it. I've tried doing a hard reset, soft reset, and letting the battery drain. Is there any use for it? Does anyone know of a way to recover it?

What's wrong with my spacebar?

Something has gone horribly wrong with the spacebar on my laptop. You have to hit it in the middle to get it to work. If you tap it towards one side, nothing happens.

I admit, I removed it to clean it. Maybe this damaged it. But all the other keys on my laptop can be safely removed and replaced without damage. It's a Toshiba Portege. I'm weirded out.

Is the Toshiba RDXS32 DVR/DVD defective?

This is going to be extreme narrowcasting, but: People have reported that the Toshiba RDXS32 DVR/DVD recorder has a serious flaw when making DVDs -- namely, the black level is too low and everything looks washed out, making the discs only playable on that particular machine. The unit is on sale from Amazon, which I take to be an inventory reduction, meaning that these are those flawed machines ... but other reviews say the problem didn't affect them, suggesting maybe the problem was fixed along the way. Anyone know for sure? Or, does anyone want to suggest another standalone DVR w/ HDD that competes with this one in features and price ($370)?

Home Network Issue

While I am working, every 10 mminutes or so, my Toshiba tablet computer keeps dropping my own home network and informs me that there are other networks available (the neighbors'). How can I tell it to ignore all networks except my own?

What is making this Windows ME laptop freeze every time you plug in the ethernet and the Windows Shell runs?

I consider myself a reasonably good computer person, so the fact that I'm having this problem angers me. I'm working on a laptop for a friend -- a Toshiba Satellite 1805-S253 -- that runs Windows ME. When she gave it to me, it had a trivial problem with the Content Advisor, which I fixed; it also ran fine on a network. Now, 28 critical updates later, it runs fine off the network (which is the way she uses it), but the minute you plug a network cable into its built-in ethernet port and then try to run anything which uses the Windows Shell (e.g., Windows Explorer, Internet Explorer, any open/save dialog box), it freezes solid, and you have to manually quit the Explorer process in order to recover it. I've tried everything -- deleted all the clients in the Network control panel, plugged it into three different Ethernet switches, updated every single driver and/or BIOS that I could, prayed to the Holy Gods Of Built-In Hardware -- to no avail. Any ideas?
