Question about Toshiba Tecra 9100 Notebook

My Toshiba Tecra 9100 won't go into STANDBY MODE

I just bought a used toshiba tecra 9100... Wow, what a great machine, fast, wireless range fantastic... one problem, the unit NEVER goes into standyby mode, regardless if configured in the "power options" for the screen or drives to shut down after a specific timeframe, or when I flip down the screen.

The screen certainly turns off when I flip it down, but the unit continues to run, which of course drains power/baterries to zero!

Being a student on the run, stby mode is critical as I run from class to class.

I also note that when clicking on "START" then selecting "TURN off COMPUTER", I do NOT even get the option to Stand by.... (I see it, but icon is dim and not functional...

Can some one help !

No hard disk found


From what you describe, your 40GB should be compatible with Tecra 9100.
I'd suggest you reset the BIOS settings to the factory defaults, just to ensure there are no wierd settings. Have you managed to use any other HDD with your Tecra 9100 previously?

Have You checked for a BIOS update for this model / vintage ?

Its the system-board, a chip there.

This means that your laptop does not have the display drivers installed. Check you check in the control panel, go to system icon and click on device manager? Check to see what VGA drivers are installed.
