Toshiba Portege R100

Hi I have a Toshiba Portege R100 and everytime I use it after 2 weeks of storage + the batteries are flat.
It has a new Extended Battery fitted and when fully charged last for 6 hours GREAT! but if I only use approx half the battery, it is completley flat next usage.

I have also a TECRA M2 but when I use 50% of the fully charged battery after no usage for approx 2 weeks the battery is still 50% chargeg ...?? Confused
Both are centrino models with max memory fitted.
H E L P !!

Hi,

If it was working fine before then are many reasons why this could happen
1. Battery is old and is dead
2. Battery not plugged in properly
3. Carbon might have appeared at the ports where the charge passes thru in the laptop
Solution: open the cover where u put the battery, The ports where the battery goes in , try to touch the metal area with any other metal so that if there is any carbon it passes thru to the other metal... and the ports become free
4. Try to do a flee power release
MAke sure battery is fully charged.
Take out the battery from laptop
when the battery is out , press the powe button on laptop for 30 sec and then put the battery in ur lapyop and try to trun it on by pressing the power button firmly.
IT shud work


OR

Try different batteries ( u can borrow )
if it still does not work
They contact laptop vendor , the ports where the power from battery goes in to ur system are faulty
Take it to an authorized service center.

Thank You

Portege R100 (Toshiba). I have not used this laptop in over a year and can not rem the bios password I'd set. Tried all I could think of. Is there any way to reset the password on this?


Hi,yes there is but you'll have to open the system up,if you have no prior I.T expertise I'd suggest you take to a qualified Technician,but if you do here is how:First remove the Battery,then uncouple the system taking of where each of the screws go to then locate the CMOS battery(small battery Lithium Ion mostly in the shape of a cent or smaller),it may be underneath the keyboard or just behind once the external cover is open.unplug it from the system for about an hour or two reconnect it,couple the system and boot,go to Bios,reset Date and Time and save,then exit.

Now, that is a tough one. Only way to unlock the hard drive is to have the original password. You will not even be able to access it retrieve any data you want to save.

Thinking you are in the market for a new hard drive and a complete reload of the system.

Laptop will not go in BIOS or boot up


We use these and several times I have had to pull the battery, disconnect the power cord and hold the power button for 30 seconds (count slow). After that, it boots fine.

On my toshiba R100 / SD card reader doesn't work


this problem bugged me for weeks!! finally figured it out today
download the sd card reader drivers from toshiba (not a 3rd party site) boot into safe mode delete all the sd card reader drivers currently installed install the downloaded driver reboot into normal mode
let the computer go about its business installing the driver, then it should work. 
cheers, thomas..

Toshiba without battery


1. If the batteries are dead then there's no way that you can charge them again. You're better off purchasing a new one. You can purchase one online by visiting the ToshibaDirect website or by calling them on 1-800-316-09202.

2. Yes, you can use the power cords to run the computer. Just plug them in using the power cords even with the batteries removed and it should work fine.

3. Yes you can but you might experience some current fluctuations. This is negligible on a CMOS battery though.
