Re: TOSHIBA LIBRETTO 50CT NEEDS LINUX
Hello there If you haven't got it already, download "Freespire" its a free linux download and really easy to use!!!!!! It comes equipt with all the software you will need and a automatic updater which will download anything you need for the system. Its easy to set up your internet and use office software (you can even view microsoft docs), with this you can even connect and chat to MSN, Yahoo etc give it a go you will like it!!!!!!!!!

I haven't encountered multiple beeps on shutdown - but multiple beeps on startup is usually an indication of a memory issue. Frequently can be resolved by simply taking memory modules out and re-inserting them.
If problem continues, may need to replace memory chip. If more than one chip, put one in at a time and startup to see which chip is causing the problem.
Not sure, based on your description of the problem, if this is the issue - but certainly worth a try.

Restart the Toshiba laptop when there restoration process finishes running.Follow the prompts that appear on the screen to set up the laptop's date, timeand language settings.
Just a bad screen. There's not a cost-effectve fix for these things due to the age of this laptop and on top of that, these screens were incredibly rare even when they were first sold. If you must replace it, then your best bet would be to hunt down a whole unit (eBay would be your best bet) - it might take a while but your target price should not be over $20 delivered. That'd be your best bet.
remove the battery and adapter. press power button for 30 sec. then connect the adapter. press power button. if this didnt work. you need to ask for an help of a local tech to check for the video card and cable.
Have you tried booting into the Safe Mode?
This won't necessarily fix anything but will at least tell you if some of the Windows installation is intact.
When first powering it on, tap the F8 key as soon as anything appears on your screen.
If that doesn't do it, try F5 it varies dependent on Windows version and/or system.
If you can get to the Desktop (it will look awful-icons spread way past the screen limits) and run some initial checks on it such as chkdsk to see if the hard drive is intact.
If you get this far, post again and tell us what happened.
if you want to improve the speed of your laptop you could buy a faster harddrive with an higher rpm per minute than the one installed in the unit, that WILL speed up the system:), and yes its possible to boot from the 2gb flash card but i recommend if you are going to use a flash card you get a bigger one:) Cheers
Depends on what OS you are using. For this particular model (Libretto 100CT), it is probably either Win9X or RedHat (or some Linux variation).
In Win9X, you might try F8 & run it in DOS and run: Scandisk c: /autofix /surface; Scanreg /fix
If it is beyond repair you have to have access to the OS installer CD.
Sometimes Win9X installer is also saved in the HD. Try checking if it is inside your HD and run setup.
Hope this be of some help. Pls post again how things turn up. kind regards.
