We use these and several times I have had to pull the battery, disconnect the power cord and hold the power button for 30 seconds (count slow). After that, it boots fine.

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.

Installing Windows XP OS from CD


I have been installing XP on Portege M200 laptops.
I use a usb floppy to install the latest bios update from Toshiba's support site.
After the update the laptop will boot from a USB Cd/DVD drive.
be patient the first part of the up date goes extreamly slowly but it seems to keep working and the install will work.

Toshiba R100 suddenly very slow(!)


I'd suggest sending it back to where you bought it, this sounds a lot like a factory problem and it should be covered under warranty.

Boot up problem


NOTE: Ususally when computers DO NOT find any startup information on the SELECTED DRIVE (like when you click a key) it goes to the default drive.
WHICH IS YOUR HARD DRIVE.
Meaning it is probably your Harddrive is broken, or your connection from hard drive to motherboard is broken

Burn a Live CD bootdisk of some linux distribution
liek Slax, google it.
Burn it to a bootable CD and put it into your drive, then select to boot from it.
If it boots only using your CD ROM drive, if that works then its probably not your BIOS/rest of computer, which is good.

And while in the live cd, you can see your harddrive and see files, that means its not broken its just your connection to it....either way im guessing youll have to send it in.

Right click on the computer's destop and view the display properties. Under the tab where you can alter resolution you can manage multiple monitors, It sounds like your laptop is setup to display through it's external VGA by default. Click on the two squares it shows and try to set your main screen as default.
