Toshiba Tecra 9100 won't boot or run

Hi,

Inherited a Toshiba Tecra 9100, everything worked initially. Then the sound went out. Tried to install/reinstall the drivers, didn't happen. "Hardware not present" response. Then began having startup problems. Wouldn't boot. Figured - virus. Wiped the HD, reinstalled from the disks. It would only cycle the startup, if it didn't freeze during startup. Is it worthwhile repairing this?

Thanks

I don't have any problems with the boot order, or the HD itself. I tested the HD in another computer, ran fine. I'd replace the HD, if that is all it is/was. I'm wondering if it might be something in the motherboard. What do you think?

Sounds like you might not have a HD to boot off of...corrupt sector or loose connection

Did you remember to change the 1st boot device back to the hard drive after reinstalling the system disks?

Sound trouble in toshiba tecra 9100


Please check the physical volume knob.
Fn+Esc is for mute. Please press on it again and make sure that it is not mute. If it does not work, please go to the device manager under control panel-hardware and sound-device manager-sound, game and video controllers. Click the entry for the sound (if there is only one, please click on it), select properties, click on driver tab then uninstall. Please restart your laptop and check sound. Hope it works. Thank you.

Tecra 9100 notebook sound driver download location


Does not work anyway...

I've tried the 3152, 2152, and a bunch of others from Toshiba, MS and Yamaha.

Basically Toshiba took this stand, if yor out of warranty, your **** out of luck. I'm a true retailer and because of Toshiba's crappy atitude I've dropped thier laptops. They may have a decent laptop, when they work, don't depend on service otherwise.....

Hi, Even if the hardware is physically attached/installed, the necessary software/drivers must likewise be installed in the Operating System of the laptop. Initially you can also verify that your laptop recognizes the sound card by verifying that is present and enabled in the CMOS/BIOS. If you are using a Windows based OS, you can verify that the appropriate drivers are installed in the Device Manager under the Sound, video and game controllers. If there is a Yello or Red mark on the multimedia or sound device, then you need to reinstall the software. The driver/software is normally available in the recovery/installation CD that came with the laptop. If it is not available, it may be downloaded from the Toshiba site/support/download/drivers. Drivers are OS specific. ou should specify what Windows or OS you are using. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things are or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.

some toshibas actually have an old-school volume dial along the side of the unit. look for it near the audio connectors. what exactly do you mean by "i was disable it before."? also, connect a set oh headphones to the headphone jack...anything?
