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.

Pull out the battery, wait for 10 mins then replug the battery and check for power lights. check whether your power charger is in working condition. if it's under warranty rush to your nearest service center. most probably it's motherboard is faulty.

Help with a toshiba TECRA 8100


Yes, it should run WinXP. The minimum system requirements to run both Windows XP Home and Professional are 233Mhz, 64Mb RAM and 1.5GB hard drive space. I have a Toshiba Tecra 8000 that still runs XP, a little slow, but has run smoothly for 5 years.

The setupdd.sys error is most likely a due to a defective hardware like RAM. Try installing only one ram if you have two to see if either one is defective; it should work for most users.

CPU Upgrade


You pulled the processor out of your laptop ... that was a brave move ... generally laptop boards are fully integrated so there is very few options on changing the processor ... also because of the extreme heating conditions the heat sink bonding is very critical ... make sure you replace this properly or you will have overheating issues in the future ...
