Sounds like a power issue, there are a few things that can cause this:

  1. If you are on battery power, your battery is dead, either it's out of juice or the batter can no longer hold a charge. Solution here is to get a new battery
  2. The power adapter is not connecting to the laptop properly and the battery is dead. Solution here would either by a new charger, or if the connector on the laptop is bad, new motherboard.
  3. There is a problem with the motherboard. Solution here is a new motherboard.

The BIOS pwd last time I checked could not be reset. You would have to contact the Toshiba Support and they may have another work around for the BIOS password. This is used commonly as an anti theft measure.

Laptops have built-in graphics card on the motherboard and cannot be replaced with a different graphic card.
You can upgrade the RAM to 4 Gb and install a larger SATA hard drive.

Just buy another PTS52E it will be ok, but replacing a MoBo in a laptop means taking the whole thing to bits, if you dont know what your doing, let a shop do it for you.

My Toshiba laptop TECRA A9 shuts down on second attempt only, not the first time. What can I do?


Laptop shuts down? Computers may not be smarter than people, but if they’re designed properly, they will shut themselves down before overheating to the extent that they do themselves damage. If the smart person keeps turning the notebook back on and figures out a way to foil the protection, the laptop is probably doomed. Once a laptop shuts down for thermal event protection, it may refuse to power back up for a fixed period of time, five or ten minutes, or it may begin to boot and shut down immediately as soon as it boots to the point that it can figure out that its too hot. The over-temperature protection is generally a BIOS rather than an operating system function, so one sign of an overheated laptop is one that shuts itself down while you’re using it and then refuses to boot as far as the operating system unless you leave it alone for an hour or so to cool down. Unless you’ve been working in a very unfriendly environment, high temperatures, direct sunlight, etc, you should take even a single overheating shutdown as a warning to back up your data at the first opportunity and to give the cooling system a serious cleaning. Hot spot, fan always runs? Many laptop brands and models have characteristic hot spots, like a particular corner of the keyboard or over the battery compartment. Before proceeding with the more invasive cleaning techniques that involve opening up the laptop (and potentially breaking something), spend some time searching the web for user feedback on your make and model. The bothersome hot spot on your laptop that none of your friends or colleagues have ever hear of may be a characteristic issue with your particular model and not worth a major panic.Similarly, if the fan always runs, or almost always runs, it may be a characteristic of the particular model that it simply gets hot in normal operation, or the fan control software might be poorly conceived. As long as the laptop isn’t overheating, I’d probably learn to live with a fan that seems to run too much if it’s typical for the model, and only get worried when I don’t hear it anymore.

Hi, toshiba tecra A9 with windows vista fails to startup with errors like; Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. options of starting windows normally or safe...

the easiest way to save your data is to get a usb to ide (or sata) connector and plug the drive into another computers usb. Hopefully the hard drive is not too far gone and you can copy your data off. I would like to suggest that the hard drive is bad and you may not be able to save much. if you save your data I suggest that you try to reinstall windows and if this fails test the hard drive for errors
