Question about Toshiba Tecra 8100 Notebook

1 Answer

No sound, Bad graphics, No wifi Power...

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.

My Tecra Toshiba will not turn on or off, even plugged in.


Yes it is. And, it is highly recommended that you remove the battery if you're going to use your laptop for more than 1 hour. If you keep your battery in and have the laptop connected to the adapter, the poor battery is going to be charging/discharging so much that its life is greatly shortened. Also, this is what causes dead cells in batteries.
You might possibly have an internal power supply problem.
But, go ahead - remove the battery. See if it helps.
You also might try letting the battery charge for 3 hours with the laptop off.

I have a 3 year old Toshiba Tecra M4 Tablet Laptop, and my colors are inverted, anything that should come up black, comes up red. Text is okay, but images just don't look right


It would be oen of three things... in order of cost;

1. LCD Invertor has gone bad
2. SCREEN has gone bad
3. Motherboard has gone bad

In either of the three it would most likely take a toshiba tech to pinpoint exactly the problem and do the repair. Although if you are handy enough you can get the parts and repair it yourself.

When powering up I get 2 short beeps and one long one.


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.
