I am considering buying a Toshiba A75-S229 laptop. I would appreciate any
comments on the unit, plus or negative.
I will not be using it mobile very often so weight is not a concern. It will
be a second computer to my desktop, and used when I go to visit my children
Also, can the laptop be set up to automatically switch to the battery if it
is being used with 110volt and there is a power failure.
Thanks much for your input.
I have a A75-s209 and it's been great for me if that's any use to you.
The battery comes on automatically when AC power disconnects.

The cheapest solution to add Bluetooth is a USB dongle. However, are you
sure your cell phone will support downloading to a PC via Bluetooth? A lot

Toshiba A75-S206 Hangs--How to Reset? New Toshiba A75-S06 running XP Home, works great, but sometimes the
system "hangs." No Blue Screen of Death, but won't respond to
ctrl-alt-del, or any other keystroke I've found.
So I'd turn it off, but it doesn't respond to the power switch either.
Look for the reset button. Can't find one.
So I reset by unplugging and removing the battery.
Not a good way to do a hard reset, but it's happened often enough I'm
wondering if there's a reset key I'm missing or something else?

Your opinion of Toshiba A65 and A75 series? I'm in the market for a medium-grade laptop which will be used mostly
for things like web surfing, e-mail, burning the occasional CD and
also for restoring old photos with Adobe Photo Elements. No games or
DVD viewing. It would stay mostly at home and travel just
occasionally, so weight is not a huge issue. I would probably hook
up my current monitor & mouse and perhaps a standard keyboard to it
when using it at home. Good customer support & reliability are
important as well.

Toshiba A75 S2112 Shared Video Memory Hello!
I just bought a laptop Toshiba A75 S2112 but the video memory is
to 128 MB. I entered on CMOS setup, but there is no option to set the
memory of video to a value lower than 128 MB. My laptop has 1GB of RAM
but now it has only 896 MB to OS.
Someone knows how to set the amount of memory available to video
(video is ATI Radeon 9000 Mobility)?
Thanks a lot!
Power cord stopped working on Toshiba Satellite A75 S231 Help anyone! I have a new Toshiba A75 laptop--only a few months old.
Suddenly, the AC power plug does not seem to be working. The battery
is down to 13% even though it's plugged in to the wall. I checked all
the connections, unplugged and plugged them again; I tried another wall
outlet, just in case. But the battery is draining and no power is
getting to it. Anyone heard of this? When I pulled the power cord out
of the back of the machine, it made an odd squeaky noise. Other than
that, I have no symptoms to report.
Please let me know if you have any ideas. I tried searching Ask Ir...
Why is my Toshiba doing this!? Ive got the Toshiba Satellite 2455-S305. Im confused why this is
happening... I come home to my lap which is plugged in and running fine, I
unplug it to go on battery mode and open the lid. Nothing... I cant get out
of this mode. I have disabled sleep and hibernate. Im always forced to
hold the power button down to turn it off, then press it again to turn it
on. If someone can explain what is happening here, it would be appreciated.

Toshiba 2180CDT Hello,
I have a Toshiba 2180CDT that I've been using for our GPS.. If we have
a cell phone, how can we use the Toshiba for internet/e-mails while on the
road? You can see that I am not familiar with this at all.
Thanks in advance.
