Question about Toshiba Tecra 8100 Notebook
I have a Toshiba Tecra 520CDT Laptop that i got used about 2 years ago. I am using a 12V. power supply from a 30 year old Toshiba T1200 Laptop. The 520CDT Laptop is supposed to have a 15V. power supply which i don't have. Here are the problems:
1) The battery does NOT charge. when the battery is in the laptop, the power light blinks and the laptop does NOT turn on.
2) The graphics are horrible. It wont let me switch to 32-bit colors. only 16 color mode is avalible.
3)There is no sound. i cant download, or listen to music.
4) My laptop does NOT recognize my wifi (PCMCIA) card, and my wifi (PCMCIA) card toes not power up.
5) The USB drive does not work.
Note: When i got this laptop, there was a card in the PCMCIA socket, but i do NOT have it any more...........................
When i log in, a message comes up saying something about the display adaptor.
Get the correct Voltage power supply and update drivers for any hardware that is not working properly after that. You can find one online, even try ebay.
Post back and good luck.

Tips for a great answer:
"To ensure suffiient power can be supplied to your system, it is
recommended that a power supply of good quality be used. If a power
supply is used that does not provide the required power, the result can
lead to an unstable or unbootable system."
