First things first, the HDD for this model is a 50 pin PATA drive. The same as that used in the 2nd generation Apple IPODs. This drive does not work in the majority of PC's and I strongly suspect that the prior owner will have a drive that is pretty useless to him/her.

The fact that the prior owner has also taken the caddy is more problematic as only Toshiba can provide a replacement.
I suggest that you ask the seller for the HDD or at least the caddy for the disk as without this you're limited to a machine that can boot only from a few specific External CD-ROM models or only via network PXE boot.


You might be lucky to find an SSD replacement unit but make sure that

Portege R100 (Toshiba). I have not used this laptop in over a year and can not rem the bios password I'd set. Tried all I could think of. Is there any way to reset the password on this?


Hi,yes there is but you'll have to open the system up,if you have no prior I.T expertise I'd suggest you take to a qualified Technician,but if you do here is how:First remove the Battery,then uncouple the system taking of where each of the screws go to then locate the CMOS battery(small battery Lithium Ion mostly in the shape of a cent or smaller),it may be underneath the keyboard or just behind once the external cover is open.unplug it from the system for about an hour or two reconnect it,couple the system and boot,go to Bios,reset Date and Time and save,then exit.

Check your settings in the display properties. The problem could be related to some display or power saver options. This applies if no reason means you do not touch your laptop when tthe problem appears. Otherwise it could be a wire problem as you have already supposed.

How to replace r100 keyboard? i took the bottom and then i don't know how to take the keyboard


Assuming this is the same style of case as the older Portege models, the bezel on the bottom of the keyboard or on top between the keboard and the display should pry off (although there might be a screw or two into it around the hinge on the top) separately- they cap tabs on the edges of the kbd, or screws.

Toshiba without battery


1. If the batteries are dead then there's no way that you can charge them again. You're better off purchasing a new one. You can purchase one online by visiting the ToshibaDirect website or by calling them on 1-800-316-09202.

2. Yes, you can use the power cords to run the computer. Just plug them in using the power cords even with the batteries removed and it should work fine.

3. Yes you can but you might experience some current fluctuations. This is negligible on a CMOS battery though.
