Re: Toshiba tecra m2 laptop wont start..

I've had many problems with my M2, is the engineering rubbish? never could understand how a modern notebook battery/ motherboard could only last 1 year . All this 1 month out of warranty and the machine died completely, i could hear capacitors making all kinds of noise and since then it randomly works for 3 months at a time..never buying a tosh again! It's a shame the machine is light and easy to use..just failure prone.

Might go a Dell simply cos i am typing this on a 10 year old Dell Inspiron 7000 (a time when computers were built to last it seems) with more battery life than any new notebook! ahhhhgggg

My m400 wont start at all, just an orange light blinks at the power light

have you had any power surges lately?
Try taking the battery out of the laptop and starting just on power.
if this doesnt help then take battery and power and leave laptop for few hours then try again on only power or battery.

Let us know how it goes.

Tecra M4-S435 Won't Boot

The GPU graphics chip fails a lot in this model. It usually means a motherboard replacement. I've had it fixed 4 times at a cost of $600 each time at a authorized repair center but it reoccurs a year after. The GPU fan doesn't come on enough to cool the graphics chip so it fires or gets unseated.

I want to completly restore my Tecra M4 to an "as delivered" condition. What keys do I press at start up to do this?? Or is there another technique??

Hold down the zero (0) key on the Tecra keyboard whilst turning the power on. You should hear a series of beeps and be presented with a restore menu where you select option 1, 2 or 3 depending on your circumstances.
