Question about Toshiba Libretto 50CT Notebook

1 Answer

Upgrade the Toshiba Libretto 50 CT

Please advice me if it is possible to replace the HD for a solid state flash card or any other solid state, to improve the speed.

There a supplier that provides a PCMCIA with 2 GB flash card
will you please advice if it is possible to boot directly from this card instead of the hard disk.

I read in another place that it is possible to upgrade the memory speed up to 100 Mh but I think that the speed will be improved if it is possible to replace the HD

    I already have the 2GB flash card but I don´t know how to boot directly from the card instead from the hard disk.

    I also read somewhere that there are available SSD to replace the hard disk for a solid state hard disk, but I don´t know where to look for one

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:)

Toshiba Satellite C655D-S5084 CPU upgrade

It is possible but usually not worth the hassle.
Changing to another CPU chip that fits your motherboard may only show a 3-10% performance change.

See videos of CPU replacement in laptops like yours:

In general, you are better off adding more RAM (memory) or replacing the hard drive with a faster SSD (Solid State Drive) to make a laptop "fly". Your laptop can hold a max of 8 GB RAM:

In MOST laptops, slower 5400 RPM drives are used, and this is the main performance bottleneck. A 7200 RPM drive or (better yet) a SSD drive will help matters, as will more RAM (the most cost-effective speed increase).

Toshiba libretto 50 ct wont boot

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.

Best of Luck!

I recently have bought a Toshiba Satellite a665 s6086 laptop. All in all it is a great product. nonetheless I am not satisfied by the on board graphics card - intel gma hd. I searched through some forums...

Yes its possible but that would mean a main board replacement too and the price is not reasonable for an upgrade part compare to a new laptop with a powerful graphics.

Hi, 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.

A power regulator or a sweep power supply problem. The power regulators in the main power supply, and will have or start with STR###-## The # are numbers or letters. This is a repair that should be done by an amature or layman. This is a solid state set, and there are no user replaceable parts inside these sets. Have it looked at by a trained tech, Good Luck
