Question about Toshiba Tecra S1 Notebook
When powering up my laptop..Toshiba Tecra Si..ModelPT831C-1104L I don't get anything on my screen but instead I get 2 short beeps and one long beep. I replaced the power cord as well as the ram. It started up okay and would work fine. When I shut it down , it shut down okay but later when I went to use it again I started to get the beeps again and no video???
Any suggestions? Is it time to replace the laptop. I bought it used about a year and a half ago and am assuming it is at least four years old or older. Thanks for any help
The beep code is signifying either improperly seated/ bad ram or improperly seated/ bad video card. Since you replaced the RAM I would say it would be a bad video card. Replace & reboot. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.
