Re: Upgrade the Toshiba Libretto 50 CT
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

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).
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.
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.
