Network cable problem with Toshiba laptopI

Discussion in 'Laptops' started by Daniel Prince, Jun 5, 2012.

  1. I am borrowing my brother's Toshiba laptop. I can get network
    cables to plug in but they do not lock into place. I push on them
    as hard as I can but they do not lock into place. They just pull
    right out with very little force. The cables do work until they
    come out.

    I have tried both ends of five different cables but none of them
    work. I have looked at the port with a flashlight and very powerful
    reading glasses but I do not see any dirt or foreign objects that
    could block the cable.

    Do some Toshiba laptops require custom, non-standard network cables?
    Is there anything I can do to get standard cables to work?

    After I kick it, he will sometimes play with it for a few
    seconds to several minutes. His favorite are the ones that
    rattle. He'll play with any ball that makes noise.

    My Toshiba has the exact same problem.

    The tab that the cable latch locks onto has broken off.

    Live with it. :-(
