To reset the BIOS password read the information from this link.

In case of your laptop I would suggest using software from Hiren's Boot CD to reset the BIOS.

Toshiba Tecra 8000 Laptop has been stored for 1 year, never had a password, now when turned on just sits there asking for a password, pulled it apart and disconnected 2? batteries but made no difference


Try accessing the BIOS screen when it boots up by pressing either the ESC or F1 keys repeatedly and there should be a password or supervisor password section where you can disable all the passwords.

Restart computer even when bios is open


Check your Processor cooling system.If the cooling is not proper or if the processor is not working properly then the system will restart on its own with in few minutes of boot up process.Also check if there is any infection.

Toshiba Tecra 8000 keeps switching itself off.


I'd suggest removing the battery. Most laptops can run directly off the AC adapter. If it will boot up OK without the bad battery, you can either leave it like that, or buy a new battery.

If it won't boot, then you have problems other than the battery.

Help with a toshiba TECRA 8100


Yes, it should run WinXP. The minimum system requirements to run both Windows XP Home and Professional are 233Mhz, 64Mb RAM and 1.5GB hard drive space. I have a Toshiba Tecra 8000 that still runs XP, a little slow, but has run smoothly for 5 years.

The setupdd.sys error is most likely a due to a defective hardware like RAM. Try installing only one ram if you have two to see if either one is defective; it should work for most users.

CPU Upgrade


You pulled the processor out of your laptop ... that was a brave move ... generally laptop boards are fully integrated so there is very few options on changing the processor ... also because of the extreme heating conditions the heat sink bonding is very critical ... make sure you replace this properly or you will have overheating issues in the future ...
