Question about Toshiba Satellite L500 Series Notebook
We bought 2 to toshiba L500 laptops. One that works the soundboard is completely shot. And the one that doesn't work has a working soundboard but we have no idea How to open it up and switch it to the working one, we are out of warrenty and it would cost more to Get fixed by a pro than the laptop is worth. Can you send any instructions or direct us to a video? Please and thank you.

Go to CONTROL PANEL / POWER OPTIONS / POWER METER. Is the battery charged or charging?
If POWER METER says the battery is charged, you have a motherboard problem. Take it to a tech.
Do you have a voltmeter?
Remove the battery and check for voltage at the laptop's battery contacts, while it is plugged in. No voltage = charging circuit defect. A blown internal fuse or other motherboard problem. Take it to a tech.
Voltage OK or no voltmeter - take it to a tech.
A qualified technician should have a schematic and other technical documentation for your model It can be rather difficult (expensive) and hit-or-miss to locate possible fuses without the factory paperwork.

The keyboard is made that limited to no service can be done, replacement of the entire keyboard is required. Short term solution is use external keyboard if available.
