Post your model # here.
I believe Your Toshiba uses the Phoenix Bios chip:

3-3-1 CMOS RAM power bad Replace the CMOS battery or CMOS RAM if possible
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Try Resetting the CMOS on your Motherboard.
Turn off the Laptop and unplug it
Remove the battery
undo the RAM cover
Remove the RAM
plug the laptop into the power
Turn the PC on and listen for some beeping noises
If you hear the beeping noises turn the laptop back off
Unplug the charger
Replace the RAM into the RAM slots
Replace the the battery
Plug in the laptop and power it up.

if you get video output, that's Great, if not, it's possible that you have a faulty screen

Why the screen of x205-sli1 off when power on?


If there are 3 beeps when you power on, most probable it is because of the memory.
Steps for Troubleshooting

Note:remove any source of power first ...

1. Try removing the memory
2. Clean the memory using a white pencil eraser
3. Boot up the laptop without the memory
- You will hear a beep not like the 3 beeps you heard.
4. Turn off the computer again and put back the memory.
5. Then try booting up again.

Hope it helps.

Remove the 1 gig chip. Pull you battery out and unplug the laptop. Hold the power button in for 10 seconds. Put the battery back in and plug the laptop back in again and try booting it up. This should reset the BIOS and allow it to boot. The beep codes you are talking about are a memory beep code and it is normally caused by adding memory or a loose memory stick. Also try pulling the existing memory and resetting it.

Toshiba Tecra 8100 will not boot, even the toshiba boot screen not displayed


http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com/cgi-bin/ToshibaCSG/faq.jsp?z=234&service=EU&from=faq_selection&CFID=BIOS&FID=TRO0000000b07

Thats a link to info about bios updates on the tosh website. If you're not getting to the toshiba screen then POST has not completed which means that either there's a hardware problem or the bios is corupt. If you're sure the RAM is ok try flashing the Bios.

Problem is though, to make the bios update disc, you need a working computer.

and, err, It'll probably have to be a toshiba!
(sorry, not my fault!)
