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?
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?

have a toshiba tekra 9100..the problem is that it when i turn it on it indicates that its on but the screen remains off when i try it after a while it manages to turn on bu wont boot sometimes it displaysi/o channel error or it sometimes gets past that but pauses when loading the o.s .what could be the solution for this problem
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.....
No sound? The only solution I've found is to get a USB headset like the Logitech USB Headset 20. I have had this same problem with my Tecra 9100 for almost 6 months. I tried on a pair of USB Headset and it works! because it bypasses your internal soundcard. The downside is that if you have a great pair of speakers on your laptop, then it's kind of a waste that you can never use it. But at least, with this, you can now listen to CDs and chat on the internet
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?
