Question about Toshiba Tecra A8-S8314 Notebook
My Toshiba Tecra A8 PTA83A-04F012 won't boot. When I boot my machine, I get the normal Toshiba splash screen, then the screen goes blank with a blinking cursor in the upper left hand corner of the screen. Apart from the CPU fan kicking in, nothing else happens. I've tried to boot from an alternative device (eg CD-ROM), but the same problem happens. I've even tried to get into the bios (setup) but it ignores my requests. The keyboard seems to work OK. Please help.
