Question about Toshiba Portege R100 Tablet PC

Toshiba R100 suddenly very slow(!)

Hello Just recently got a Toshiba R100 equipped with Centrino 1.1Ghz with 1/2Gb and got Xp and Fedora Core running 2.6.10. Suddenly the machine has become very very slow. Both in Linux and XP. I checked the BIOS settings but even by setting the CPU always at full speed there is no difference. The machine is essentially not usable - takes about 10mins to boot up XP for example. Any hints? Many thanks. Alex I have the same problem. And, I found that my R100 is too hot. I guess the heat trasfer got problem. There is a glue between the chip and the iron which gets the heat out, the glue will be dry after several years, and it need to be changed. My problem is I don't know how to open it. Does anyone know how to open it? I have turn all the screw at the bottom, but still can't open the cover.

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?

I'd suggest sending it back to where you bought it, this sounds a lot like a factory problem and it should be covered under warranty.

Hard drive disappeared


this is a common problem on these le1700's. Can you hear the micro drive spinning up when you turn on the tablet? If you hear clicking the drive may have gone bad. If the drive is heard spinning up and doing normal whirr's and clicks it may be the connectors need to be reseated on the drive. Opening the panel for the drove and removing the 4 screws allows you access to the drive and the delicate ribbon cable attached to it. Carefully reseat the drive, or have a person that knows about zif (zero insertion force) drives reseat it for you. If it's still not working it's possible the cable itself went bad. ONLY OEM cables seem to work on these- the aftermarket ones are iffy. Also they type of drive seems to be important as well- Toshiba or Hitachi micro drives are o.k., but a micro ssd ziff seems to have less compatibility issues in my experience.

Sometimes my screen goes off for no reason!


Check your settings in the display properties. The problem could be related to some display or power saver options. This applies if no reason means you do not touch your laptop when tthe problem appears. Otherwise it could be a wire problem as you have already supposed.

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.
