Toshiba Satellite A305-S6872, Restarts/freeze on AC adapter A while ago I've seen here a solution about replacing the NEC Tokin capacitor under the CPU socket to solve that common problem The original NEC Tokin capacitor on this machine is 900 uF 2.5v, so it's possible to replace it using normal capacitors in paralel. I recently fixed a Toshiba Satellite A305-S6872 and had the opportunity to take some pictures to show how to place the capacitors. In that case, I ended up with an equivalent of a 1320 uF 2.5v capacitor, which is not bad at all. The first picture is after removing the capacitor, pads cleaned. Second, added (4 X 330uF 2.5v in paralel).
