Question about Toshiba Qosmio Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Beep codes Hello, I have a Qosmio x505 q894 and not long ago it stopped working. When I click the power button nothing displays on screen, like if the screen wasn't connected at all and it beeps as follows: 1 long beep followed by two short beeps, then after about 3 to 5 seconds, it short beeps twice but these two are louder. Ex. Beeep..Beep Beep......BEEP BEEP. I already checked the RAM memories and they work just fine.

SOURCE: PC wont boot

1-3-3-1 Autosize DRAM

It is a memory problem.
Have you added new memory?
How many sticks of memory does your laptop have?
If it has 2, take one out and try to boot the unit. If it does not work, switch the memory and boot again.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

SOURCE: Hi there.

The IBM beep code 1 long beep + 3 short beeps indicates a video card problem.
The video card uses part of the main memory for video RAM. Try reseating the RAM module. If this doesn't work test the RAM module in another computer or get your friendly computer shop to test it for you.
If the RAM is OK then the fault is the video card and it is part of the motherboard.
The T30 is an old model laptop and the cost of replacing the motherboard would not be cost effective assuming you can even find one.

My qosmio toshiba model x505-q882 wont turn on when i try to press the power button i just got it by mail a few days ago so i don't understand what the problem may be.

If it isn't already, try plugging it in, it might have run out of battery power. Otherwise, you would have to remove the top shell of the computer (where the keyboard is housed) to get to your power button to make sure it's plugged into the motherboard properly, unless it's still under warranty, in which case, you could send it in and have them do it for you, so long as it wasn't the first problem. If it's not under warranty, and plugging it in won't work, just post a comment here, and I'll help you with making sure the power button is plugged in.

I have a Toshiba Qosmio X505 that has two files infected "TCrdMain.exe and "avgnt.exe" Nothing I do removes the problem. I have my recovery CD's, is this my only choice? and if so what...

If it is a bad virus that won't let you do anything on the computer, follow the instructions on this link. If you can install programs on your computer, follow only steps 7 and 8 from the above link.

If you still want to go further with the recovery CD, follow these steps. Power off the laptop. Press and hold the 0 (zero) key and at the same time, press the power button once to switch on your notebook. When the machine Starts beeping; release the 0 key. When prompted by the warning screen; select Yes to continue with the system recovery. Select Recovery of Factory Default Software; click Next. Select Recover to out-of-box state. Click Next again. Click Next to Start recovery.
