I inherited a Toshiba Tecra 8200 laptop. It boots to a black screen asking for a password. Is there a way around this? Thx

Hi, try pressing the ESC button during boot up, this will allow you to start in safe mode, from where you can change your passworg, via the control panel. (Sometimes its the Del button on sertain machines)

Toshiba Tecra A3X Not Booting from USB CD ROM

Your laptop is apparently unable to boot up off an external usb source. Only newer equipment has this provision in the bios. Since you cannot boot up from usb the only way you can recover your unit or do a clean reinstall or repair of xp is to replace the internal drive that is allegedly defective.

Replacing the optical drive is fairly easy and does not involve massive disassembly of your laptop. And any cheap drive will work provided it has the same physical configuration as the old one.
