I think if you do not have a recovery disc then the operating system needs to be reinstalled. It is also possible that the system needs a virus scan if there was a case of malwares within the PC.

This is the only card that works in the mini-PCI slot in the 1905 series. eBay would be your best bet. You can look under "Toshiba 1905 wireless card" but ... make sure it's an Agere card, as most sellers are selling Intel, Broadcom, Atheros.... and none of them will work.

you have a virus,, go to another computer and download the bootable version of AVG anti-virus program, You need the one that will boot before Windows does, or you will never get rid of it. You may be able to get a copy from your local computer service people for a small price. or you could let them do it and pay their fee.

This could be a sign that your laptop is overheating. If you touch the laptop while it is running & you find it too hot, make sure that the fan is running properly & that the air ways are not blocked.
You can blow compressed air into the cooling vents of the fan. If you notice clouds of dust coming out, then it might be a good idea to disassemble the laptop, clean the fan & air ways, & reassemble it back. If the fan has failed & is no longer running, it might need to be replaced.
You might also check the thermal grease applied between the bottom surface of the heat sink & the upper surface of the processor. If this thermal grease has dried out, you will need to clean it out carefully, & apply fresh thermal grease.

What type of router do you have? Is it a B, G or N? The Belkin Play's will not work with B-Router's.
It could be the adapter itself. If you just purchased it try exchanging it and see what happens with the next one.
I hardly ever recommend Belkin anything....I have and will always use Linksys.

Hi! You may want to toggle the function button designated for turning the monitor on or off. Press FN button together with th efunction button that has a monitor image on it. some system uses F2 of F3 button to do this. (Example: press FN+F3 or FN+F2 button together once while computer is on to turn on system display)

There is none! Anything you wanna add to the 1905 series will have to be done via its PCMCIA (PC card) slots.

Lots of incompatibilities and covering pin 13 does NOT solve the problem with this series laptops. Get the MPC13A-20/R 802.11b card - it works wonderfully well, even though it's only a 'b' card.

Toshiba... | Answered on Mar 11, 2010

When you press the power button and nothing - I mean absolutely nothing - happens, and if your indicator panel is showing that it is plugged in, then it's a dead power button board. Period.

This is a common problem with the 1905 series.

keyboards are very cheep , so your best bet is just to replace the keyboard, also you probably have 2 ctrl keys on the keyboard, just use the other one instead, keyboards are usually not worth fixing
