Question about Toshiba Satellite R15-829 Tablet PC
I bought this computer some three years ago. It was running ok until yesterday, when I realized that it felt too hot around the HDD location and I noticed that I hadn´t heard the fan kicking in.
I turned the power off, removed the battery and the DVD Multirecorder from their bays, opened the memory and the HDD cover, and let the equipment rest until it cooled down to room temperature (73 to 75 ºF).
I replaced covers, battery and DVD recorder, energized the system using 115V adapter, but it does not boot... I get the initial Toshiba screen for about 3 seconds and then the screen goes black but shows random lines. I´ve made quite a few attempts to get it to start but with same results.
Now I´m trying to open the underside of the laptop to check on the cleanliness around the fan and everywhere else, but after removing 23 screws (marked F6 and F4), everything seems to loosen up, except where the HDD rests. How do I remove the HDD? There seems to be a hidden screw underneath that doesn´t allow for the underside to get completely loose...
Thanks for any available help

The driver irql_not_less_or_equal error can have multiple causes, but most of the time it is a hardware/driver issue.
Check if there are any new drivers available for you computer's hardware devices and update them if so.
Running a memory test also does not harm, could be faulty RAM.

I have a Toshiba Tecra M5 (s4332) and suddenly it too is very very slow. Takes about 6 minutes for fully boot up. It is very clean, defraged, no viruses, minimal software installed. Worked well, but now...it is painfully slow to do just about anything. Any suggestions?

This information is intended for experienced users. It is not intended for basic users, hackers, or computer thieves. Please do not try any of following procedures if you are not familiar with computer hardware. I'll not be responsible for the use or misuse of this information, including personal injury, loss of data or hardware damage. So use it at your own risk.
A. By Using the Motherboard Jumper:
In most motherboards CMOS battery is soldered, which makes it difficult to remove the battery. In this case we use another method.
Almost all motherboards contain a jumper that can clear all CMOS settings along with the BIOS password. The location of this jumper varies depending upon the motherboard brand. You should read your motherboard manual to check its location. If you don't have the manual then look for the jumpers near the CMOS battery. Most of the manufacturer label the jumper as CLR, CLEAR, CLEAR CMOS, etc.
When you find the jumper, look carefully. There will be 3 pins and the jumper will be joining the center pin to either left or right pin. What you need to do, is remove the jumper and join the center pin to the opposite pin. e.g. if the jumper joins center pin to left pin, then remove it and join center pin to right pin. Now wait for a few seconds and then again remove the jumper and join the center pin to left pin.
Make sure to turn the PC off before opening the cabinet and resetting the jumper.
B. By Using Software:
I have found that BIOS/CMOS Password Recovery Tool is the most effective.:
BIOS/CMOS Password Recovery Tool is a program that works instantly to remove any lost or forgotten BIOS/CMOS password. Simply boot your PC to DOS and execute the program, and get access to forgotten BIOS/CMOS passwords in just seconds
