    What you need to do to test this is the following:

    1 - Check if its the battery : Remove the battery, plug in the laptop and try to power on the machine, if it powers on then your battery is dead and the system board is fine

    2 - With the batter in and the laptop plugged in you should get a charging LED light up somewhere on the laptop, if you do not then the board is most likley gone.

    If removing the battery and plugging the laptop in still fails to start the board of spin the fans and you hear no beeps, then the board is gone.

    Hope this helps

Toshiba Tecra 8000 Laptop has been stored for 1 year, never had a password, now when turned on just sits there asking for a password, pulled it apart and disconnected 2? batteries but made no difference


Try accessing the BIOS screen when it boots up by pressing either the ESC or F1 keys repeatedly and there should be a password or supervisor password section where you can disable all the passwords.

How do I switch from battery to power on my Toshiba Tecra 8000?


Mama,
You do not have to switch from the battery to power as long as the powwr adapter is plugged intp the wall socket and the laptop. When the battery goes low it starts charging while running the laptop and when not charging it runs the laptop alone. I hope that relieves you of your worries?

The power was turned off. Now get a warning: system resume failure. What to do to restart?


When you get the resume failure message, push and hold the power button until the unit turns itself off (usually around 5 seconds). Once it is turned off, press the power button again to turn it on and it should boot right into windows for you.

toshiba tecra 8000 does not have built in wireless, you need to install an external wireless adapter (usb or pcmcia), and use the software provided with the wireless adapter to configure it
