Equium A100-147: replaced Fan part number
I have an Equium A100 147 which is now out of warranty.
I need to be able to find and of course spare part number where I can buy one of these ASAP.
If someone could help me with this, it would be quite apprieciated.
You can not ONLY buy the fan. The fan is a part of the cooling module and the entire module cooling must be replaced.
You need a cooling module that has been designed especially for this series of laptop and I know ASP (certified partner) in your country should be able to help.
I think guys should be able to order this part compatible directly from the warehouse of Toshiba.
Then call the guy and ask for help!
I got a toshiba Equium A100-147 by a friend. The only problem is that it comes without a hard drive, because he still destroyed his old hdd to protect its personal and professional data.
I saw in a local computer store a disk sata hard very good price for only? Â £38 it's a 160 GB w Digital Scorpio 5400 RPM 8 MB Cache S - ATA HDD laptop someone knows if it will work or this laptop does it work-specific hdd?
Looking forward to any help you guys can give
Of course you need a compatible HARD drive.
There are two different standards of HARD drive. SATA and IDE
You need the HARD drive with the SATA interface. I think the original HARD drive was 100 GB.
So a 120 GB and maybe a 160 GB SATA HDD should also be compatible.
As far as I know the HARD drive slot was placed at the bottom of the unit and a screw secures the plastic cover.
It of really not difficult to replace the HARD drive and I think that the details could be found in the user manual.
I need to know what part to buy to replace the fan. I get hp fan 90 b error message that says that my fan is not working properly. A month ago, it started making loud noises. It still works, but I want a replacement nearby is not installed until the thing decided to die for good.

Because your model is a CTO model it does not give material specifications.
You need one of the two fan-heatsink for Intel based motherboards, found in Chapter 3 on page 29 of the owner's manual.
However, it is very easy to understand than you need...
If your laptop computer is the AMD / switchable graphics of Intel you need of this fan/heater:
For use only on the computer models equipped with an Intel processor and a graphics subsystem with discrete memory
HP Part # 682061-001
If your laptop has Intel HD graphics card, you need the fan/radiator:
To be used on the computer models equipped with an Intel processor and a graphics subsystem with UMA memory
HP Part # 682060-001
need to buy a replacement key for A100-147 but need part number
can help you! Thank you
You can simply get all of the keyboard.
As far as I know it is not possible to replace the key on the keyboard of course you can remove the cap of the key, but if you have some mechanical issues, the replacement of the cap does not help you then you need the keyboard and compatible parts can be ordered from Toshiba service in your country.
I own an Equium A100-147 with 60 GB HARD drive. I have a recovery disc and have restored the laptop several times.
I am considering an upgrade to 250 GB HARD drive.
Couple of questions...
The motherboard will host a 250 GB drive?
If I replace the HARD drive recover CD will install a new copy of the fatory software you (inc windows xp MCE)?
Any advice would be welcome.
Yes, you can use a 250 GB. The laptop has a SATA interface and there is no limit as to IDE.
If you use the recovery CD, you will get to factory settings. This means an XP installation with all the drivers and tools.
My Equium A100-147 is about 3 years now and won't hold its charge longer than 10 minutes so I bought a used one on eBay for a broken machine.
It's the wrong kind.
Been declared as Toshiba equium laptop battery but it is of course many variants.
My battery model number is: PA3399U-2BRS 10.8V 4000mAh
EBay battery model number is: PA3384U-1BRS 14.8V 4300mAh and nealy twice the size! (Could someone tell me models that suit so I can sell it on)
Pete has soon.
Before you wait here put the part number in Google and you will find on what mobile phone models can use this type of battery.
Hi, I have an Equium A100-147 with the standard of 1 GB of RAM (512 MB + 512 MB pc-4200) professional XP.
I'd like to update, and I was wondering if it would be allowed to replace one of the 512 MB sticks with a single stick of 2 GB pc-5300. RAM would be then 2 GB pc-5300 plus 512 MB pc-4200 = 2.5 GB in total.
Or would it be better to buy 2 x 1 GB sticks of pc-5300 and sell or discard existing memory?
I see a significant speed increase over the existing configuration of the Ram?
All advice appreciated.
I agree with Akuma, it would be better to use 2 x 1 GB modules.
This combination with 2 GB and 512 MB with different (PC4200 and PC5300) specifications could make problems like freezing, BSOD, etc..
At present, the price of memory is very cheap, so I think that this should not be a problem.
I have a laptop Equium A100-147. I tried many games on my laptop which should conform to the specifications required for example battlefield 2, however, these games does not work and I didn't know why. I then realized that all the games I tried were all on 4 DVD-ROM drive demanding x, and the specifications I provided with my laptop did not specify what kind of DVD player, I had another super multi layer or something.
It is while I tried the games that were demanding CD-ROM which all worked fine, I then tried a game that was 2 x DVD ROM demanding that worked apart from a small problem with models of characters not displayed, so I took back defective. Then I tried a 1 x DVD-ROM game that worked perfectly.
Today, I decided to get my DVD specifications, where I found that my laptop should read 8 x DVD - ROM drives.
So my question is, is my defective DVD player for not playing more than 1 x DVD - ROM games? And can I contact Toshiba or my provider for repair or replacement or my problem would be something else?
Thank you, Josh
As far as I know the laptop was delivered with the drive UJ - 841S and the drive supports 8 x DVD-ROM.
Of course, there must be something wrong if the drive cannot read DVD-ROM media at full speed. The middle is not supported or the drive malfunctions
What you can do is search for the update of the firmware. Many laptops come with the same drive. See the categories of driver and, possibly, there is a new update of the firmware.
You can also try to remove the physical drive from the laptop and reboot the device without the drive. Then turn off the appliance, install the drive again and the boot upward.
The laptop must initialize the firmware again and maybe this will help
But it seems you notebook is not very old and the warranty is valid. If you need to contact the ASP in your country for more details and possibly for disc replacement
Equium A100-147 would not start. Only the lights next to the CapsLock F10 F11 keys are on. When the switch is pushed the lights disappear back only after about 15 seconds.
Disconnect the power adapter and remove the battery. After doing this press the power for 30 seconds. Wait a few moments, connect the power adapter only and try to start your laptop.
What happens when you do this?
I uninstalled the readers of DVD/CD ROM of my Equium A100-147 model PSAABE by mistake. How I can I restore it? I'm not very technical
It means that your CD/DVD drive is not more?
Have you already checked the Device Manager if the drive is visible or not?
Otherwise, you must follow the instructions in this Microsoft KB article:
I had trouble with my equium a100-147.
I tried a restore, but the disc is scratched so I phoned in ESL and it snet me a new recovery image.
I tried the new recovery disk and am now errors when I boot the disk.
"internal error crc file: \WINDOWS\$NtUninstallKB895200$\msdtctm.dl.
any suggestions are welcome. get really annoyed with my machine as my warranty expired only one month
Hmm... I studied a bit and it looks a bit like a malfunction of the partition.
It would be desirable to boot from the original CD of Microsoft XP and to start the repair console.
Then you could try these various commands which help to repair the boot manager, repair errors, locate bad sectors and recover readable information.
If this does not help, you should erase the entire partitions and must format the HARD drive in NTFS file system. Then access the BIOS and set it to the default value.
Once this procedure tries to start again on the new recovery CD!
Having a little trouble with my Equium a100-147.
Tried a recovery from disk and I got up to 75% and recovery stopped.
Taken to a computer shop to get it fixed and they couldn't do anything because they do not have a disc of recovery in good condition.
Is there anywhere I can download the image to a different computer, put it on a dvd and restart from that one?
Contact the ASP in your country and order the necessary CD
Here you can find near the ASP in your country
I have the same problem, as in the http://forums.computers.toshiba-europe.com/forums/thread.jspa?threadID=17316 section.
I downloaded and installed all the drivers that I needed on my Equium A100-147, but not working no driver Lan (ethernet).
I have windows XP, home edition, SP2.
I tried both types of drivers Toshiba download (and a few others also), that should work... but unfortunately, it does not.
I'd be happy if someone could help me. Thanks anyway.
Thanks for the feed back, but I must say that I'm really confused why you have problem to facilities with driver on Toshiba download page. In any case, the problem is solved and that's the most important thing! ;)
I'm having Toshiba Equium A100-147 [00800 EAV] PSAABE... is device a infrared?
What is the corresponding driver for it? How to activate this device?
Please help me!
Can you see the infrared sensor on your laptop?
According to the specifications of the laptop your Equium doesn t have the infrared device.
I've owned an Equium A100-147 for only less than a year.
The problem I have is that if I put pressure on the area around the left speaker (where is the VGA port) there is a substantial "cracking" / rattling noise. The right does not exhibit this problem.
The other day with a same case design (model Satellite A), I got another PC Toshiba laptop and it seems to have a slightly stiffer construction quality.
Is it worth getting it checked under warranty while I still have the warranty? Or am I just too picky?
See you soon
Interestingly enough, why you support on the area around the speakers. As far as I know the speakers are placed between the keyboard and display and keyboard there is no pressure to the speakers. Very strange method to test the functionality of the laptop! ;)
In any case, you should contact the service because the speaker should be placed and fixed correctly.
