Another "Won't Boot"

My V2000 won't boot. It starts to power up, beeps twice stops at the Compact sign in the middle and "press [esc] to change boot order, press [F10] to setup, press [F12] to boot from lan" at the bottom. Won't except any input. I tryed turning on with ESC pressed and it does the same thing as above, then goes to "Press to resume, to Setup" at the top then won't doo nothing.

    Thanks, I checked the keyboard cable, it's fine. I think when I got a different screen when I held down the ESC key, booting up, shows the keyboard is working. I dont think it has an external keyboard input

My guess is a faulty processor.  I had to replace my motherboard a while back.  Yesterday I was really proud because I got the machine up and running, proving, I thought, that I had successfully took it apart and put it back together.  It had been out of commission for a while, so when I shut it down, it asked if I wanted to do windows xp auto updates.

This morning I got the exact same issue you have, so I opened her back up and noticed that I forgot to plug the CPU fan back into it's socket.  So much for feeling awesome.

My guess is that while doing updates it overheated and died, but I didn't notice because I stopped paying attn to it because it was turning itself off.  I don't think it's a Windows thing because when I try to put a boot cd into the computer, it still won't read.

Dunno what to say...  I'll definitely post back here after I replace the cpu to see if I find an answer.

First Press all the keys on the keyboard (computer on or off)a sweeping motion accross all keys will do, A stuck key can prevent windows from booting (seen as a keyboard error). it is also possible that your keyboard connector has come loose, check the keyboard connector (you will need to remove the facia above the keyboard and may have to undo a couple of screws to do this). could try to plug in an external keyboard, see if this allows you to bypass issue

I have a Toshiba Tecra M7 that won't boot and up until this morning nothing worked. This is what I've done so far this morning WHEN it does decide to boot. 1. Power up computer from off with ESC...

Your hard drive may have gone south. Remove it and check with diagnostic software. Bad sectors in critical areas of operating system data will do this.
