Reset bios on toshiba tecra pt831u


I believe your model is Tecra S1 - PT831U. I found htis link and the BIOS version is 2.50. You might need to install things in a certain order, (I know this to be true for DELL laptops)So first some instructions from Toshiba,: "
.....Follow the steps below to procure or view any of the following support-related items for your Toshiba computer:
  • Drivers
  • Utilities
  • BIOS updates
  • Detailed Specifications
  • User's Guides
  • Product Tours
  • Support Bulletins
1. Click Product Support in the navigation bar toward the top of the page of ths website (the Toshiba Support website -- support.toshiba.com).
2. Choose a product Category, Family, and Model from the lists and then click GO.
For example: Portables, Portege, R500-S8199, GO.
A list of Support Bulletins for the selected model will appear, since that tab is selected by default.
3. Click other tabs to see Downloads, Detailed Specs, the User's Guide, a Product Tour, and other content for the selected model.

4. For Downloads and Support Bulletins, you can use the Refine Search By lists to narrow your search to a specific operating system, and/or to a specific technology topic (BIOS, Wi-Fi). A more specific results list will be displayed.
5. Click the title of any item in the lists to view or download it.

Toshiba Satellite laptop w/ blank, black screen & blinking cursor


the hard drive is not checking in correctly. go into your f2 function which is your bios. see if in there during the boot options if you have a hard drive showing up. if you do, you would need to check if the hard drive has failed or the o.s. is corrupt.if you do not see a drive there, its failed, check to see if its seated correctly. if it is seated correctly the drive has failed and will need to be replaced.


if it shows up, and if you have your restore disk, load it and select repair. it will look for the hard drive and any windows installations. if it does not find any. then the drive is bad and will need to be replaced, in the event it does find the windows installation then continue to repair the machine software.

Let me know what happens when you try this

Good Luck!

Satilite 1800 3 beeps no boot 1 long 2 short


That is a memory error. Remove and reseat the memory in your computer. If the error persists and you have more than 1 stick, try each stick separately to find the faulty unit. If you only have one stick, then the memory will need to be replaced.

Acer Aspire 5052 nothing on LCD


If the LCD display worked until the processor over heated and then went blank, and would work again once it cooled down, then yes I do. As you described above, the screen going blank and blank still on reboot ( no time to cool down ), then the next day the LCD displayed again ( cooled down over night ). Appears to be directly related to the over heating problem.
But if the display problem progressed to the point that the PC would boot up cold and the display was still blank, then I would think your graphics card will need repair.

Toshiba satellie A135-S4467 screen went blank


Sounds like a bad motherboard if the system just failed and now you can get nothing to happen. One way to check this is to take a monitor from a desktop and plug it into your computer and power on your computer and see if anything happens if nothing happens then replace your motherboard

No screen on my toshiba 9100


Hi Alex

I suggest going to Safe Mode and see what happens. You do this by tapping F8 right after the Toshiba splash screen. There should be an Advanced Windows Options menu. Choose Safe mode and wait, if everything appears ok then its probably a driver problem, a reinstallation of those should do the trick, if not, then we might be looking at something a little more critical. Let me know what happens.

Cheers;

Screen on Toshiba M35x S149 Laptop blank/flickers


this can be caused by many reasons, here are some that comes to my mind: 1. bad connection between computer and screen, usually an easy one, but since its a laptop, you cannot change cable, so you will have to take it to the lab. anyway, if it is the problem, fixing it should be cheap. 2. in order to make sure it is "only" a faulty monitor, connect the laptop with another monitor, I dont know the exact function in this specific model, but as long as it has an video output, it can be done. 3. it is posible that backlight invertor has short circuit and should be replaced. this one can cost up to several hundred dollars, so be prepered. hope this helps.
