20 Most Recent Toshiba Satellite A45-S250 Notebook Questions & Answers

Does this happen after the computer has been running for a while? Chances are, the CPU is overheating. Do you hear the fan running at all?

Toshiba Support > Satellite A45-S250 Notebook PC > Atheros 802.11 a/b/g WiFi driver with Cisco WPA support for Windows XP and 2000,


HOWEVER, it requires the Atheros Client Utility v2.4.2.18, to be installed. If it isn't installed on the laptop, this utility needs to be installed first. Then the Driver above.


If you need guidance in downloading, or installing please post in a Comment.

You should check your boot option to fix this problem.
In the boot option, select those options you want to boot from like cd/dvd rom or from USB or HDD.

First try starting the machine without the battery, only the charger, Then check the charger with an ohm meter to see if it's working properly. The out put readings are listed on the charger. In case of a surge, the charger is designed to go out first before damaging the system. However, this is not always the case. If the charger checks good, then you should take it in for a professional diagnostic because the problem may be with the power management system on the motherboard. One thing to keep in mind for future reference is when moving to a different location with your laptop, when unplugging the charger, always unplug the charger from the laptop before unplugging from the wall socket, and when plugging in, always plug the charger into the wall socket before plugging into the laptop. This will keep from surging your system.

To reset the BIOS password read the information from this link.

In case of your laptop the easiest method would be using software from Hiren's Boot CD.

Unplug the power cord, take out the battery and hold the power button down for 10-15 seconds. This should take your computer out of the reboot loop that it is stuck in. If it doesn't, try using an external CD drive from Wal-Mart or Radio Shack, your computer should register it and you can load the windows CD from there.

Sounds like its life is over and time for a new one. I burn a lot of disks myself and have had to replace quite a few over the yrs. You can do it yourself easy enough theres just 1 screw underneath your laptop holding it in then it just pulls straight out.....cheers and plz vote

Hi, You can get any capacity or speed you want, The only thing you need to make sure of is that it is an EIDE drive for laptops and that you have all the drivers and software you will need to reinstall everything back onto your laptop after you install the new drive.
