Have you tried looking in your device manager to see if all is ok in there. If your PCMCIA port isn't working maybe it can be fixed from the device manager. Could just need the driver updated. I hope this problem works out asap for you.

I have toshiba Tecra 9000 laptop, its USB ports and Keyboard EXTERNAL port is not working. please help me

It's a common problem with the Tecra 9000's - either one or both USB ports and sometimes the external KB port along with it. The 2 USB's and external KB port (and the TV out port next to it) are all located on the same daughterboard that plugs into the motherboard, and in your case, more than likely the connector on the motherboard is bad (gotten loose). There's no easy fix for this unless you've got an ultra-fine soldering tip, good soldering skills....

How about a workaround? A PC card (PCMCIA card) that gives you 2 or 4 high speed USB 2.0 ports - it'll stick out a little on the right hand side, but in return you'll have fast USB ports, and you can use a USB keyboard with the thing.

My toshiba tecra 8000 will not power on

What you need to do to test this is the following:

1 - Check if its the battery : Remove the battery, plug in the laptop and try to power on the machine, if it powers on then your battery is dead and the system board is fine

2 - With the batter in and the laptop plugged in you should get a charging LED light up somewhere on the laptop, if you do not then the board is most likley gone.

If removing the battery and plugging the laptop in still fails to start the board of spin the fans and you hear no beeps, then the board is gone.

Hope this helps

You can get a bus card that has an ethernet port to hook up via ethernet cable, or a universal wireless card for the bus port or usb port. You can find either of these at Walmart or Bestbuy.

toshiba tecra 8000 does not have built in wireless, you need to install an external wireless adapter (usb or pcmcia), and use the software provided with the wireless adapter to configure it

Pcmcia dont work

Unplug the card from the slot and reboot your laptop without it in there. After your computer boots back up, plug your card back in and it should recognize it again.
