Question about Toshiba Tecra 8100 Notebook
On the one with XP sound problems - Windows XP should install the sound drivers automatically - even Window ME will do that, and if it doesn't work, then you may have a simple case of a bad MB.
As to the one with the "BIOS is Damaged" problem, it is a bad MB. You can't get rid of the problem by replacing the CMOS battery or flashing the BIOS so save yourself the trouble. And if anyone knows where the BIOS is hiding on the MB, I'd volunteer to give it a try to replace it!

Your laptop is not new enough for winxp. There are no drivers for it.Im surprised that the BIOS let you install it.
I would try to use the win2000 drivers, they may work.
Sorry for the not so good news.
Please let me know how you make out.
