Re: tecra

If any one else is haveing a problem like this make sure you machine is not on quick boot, if it has this feature as i was pussled for to days installing xp on a machine that had quick boot it was installing and when it came to the time it had to reboot it would reboot and go though the install again i tried changing the ram hard drive but still no joy. until i found quick boot mode in bios settings i turned it off and i had my machine running xp withing a couple of hours.

Re: tecra

I just went through a heck of a time installing WinXP on an M1. The machine kept shutting off in the DOS-based part of installation while copying files.

The solution was to press a key every few minutes as it seemed that the machine was going into sleep/shutdown mode.

This item was designed fro use with Windows NT4 or Win2000 so XP may have driver errors.
If you have upgraded XP to SP3 try updates from Windows for a fix, otherwise re instalation of the original OS may be needed.
Have you run CHKDSK/F to check for hard drive errors? That is most likely to be the problem as if the drive is formatted to anything other than FAT32 you may be getting read errors.
Nice old machine. It will be a shame to have to ditch it.

I search for a driver for my laptop TOSHIBA T9000 MODEL N° PT900E-06QW3-FR

Drivers are dependent on the version of Windows installed. You can download from Toshiba support page but they may only work on XP or older. If you have installed a new OS, try installing XP drivers or search Windows update.

Click here to go to Toshiba driver download page. Drivers are for Tecra 9000.

Bluescreen is appearing after installing the os

Usual reason for blue screen after OS install is corrupted OS. It might have missed a file while installing or cd had a smudge or scratch on it. It rare occasions it can be hard drive it self. I would try to reload the OS but make sure CD is clean of dirt and scratches. Most times this will resolve issue. Also if you are installing higher version of OS on a pc that had Hardware that does not support new OS version. Like going from XP to Windows Vista or Windows 7. Sometimes you just cant upgrade even by doing new install since not all computer hardware is compatible with new OS. Some manufactures do this so you have to by new computer in order to get new Windows version. Hope this helps.

Either the HDD controller is bad or the HDDs you used have bad sectors.HDD regenerator software alot of times will correct the bad sectors and then the OS will install correctly and function smoothly.

Toshiba tecra m2v s330

Try borrowing a compatible HDD instead of buying a third one for testing and check if the same error exists. Try also using an external DVD drive to see if your internal CD-ROM is defective. Try also using another Windows XP CD installer. You can also use other OS installation CD to check it. Otherwise, there is something wrong with your lappy's motherboard due to tear and wear, heat, vibration, misuse and shock.
