Can you hear the hard drive spinning with clicking sounds? Have you tried booting from a floppy disk? Even if you don't have a boot floppy, try putting any floppy disk in the drive, then turn the computer on. You should see and error message "not a boot disk, change and restart" or similar. If you get that error, then the boot sequence is working, that's good. If you don't, that's bad. Probably a bad motherboard. If you don't hear the hard drive spinning, that's bad, too. Means a dead hard drive. But at least you can replace the HD.

Try taking the battery out and use only the AC. If everything turned out fine, it could be a problem on the battery or on the port.

If your laptop was sitting on a bed, soft chair or something similar it probably just got too hot. Let it sit for a few hours before attempting to power it back on.

Power on password


HI,

Please see below for instructions on reset the BIOS password on your old Tecra.

  • Download KeyDisk from http://www.cgsecurity.org/keydisk.exe
  • Format a 1.44MB floppy disk and leave in your floppy drive
  • RunKeyDisk, this will create a special floppy disk to reset your laptop password.
  • Insert this disk into your Tecra laptop and reboot, the laptop should find the disk, boot from it and ask you for a password, press ENTER at this prompt and it will ask you for a new password.
If you have any further queries, please do not hesitate to ask

Regards

Mac Ibook Power supply problem


On Mac iBooks the orange light comes on when it charges the battery. Once the battery is charged it turns green. Im guessing the other powersupply was aftermarket or broken. EIther way, if it starts out green - recognizes the battery isnt full - turns orange for a while - then turns green when the battery is full, then the computer and powersupply are working perfectly. Enjoy your iBook!

Battery/Power problem


many toshiba laptops used a 15 volt supply, but look at he label attached to the bottom of the unit. it should spell out what voltage and what current (in amps). if a 15 volt supply is used that can only supply 100 milliamps, while the laptop needs more than 1000 milliamps, the laptop will play dead
