Question about Toshiba Tecra 510CDT (P000224080) Motherboard

1 Answer

Dispaying broad colourfull vertical lines.

Hi, I have been given a very old Tecra 510cdt/2.1, circa stone age.
I am not techno able, but am guessing the vertical lines suggest graphic/video card problems??. If so, could you please tell me where I can buy a card, roughly at what price, and how to fit it myself???.
This laptop also ignores discs in its cd rom driver, which I also need advice/help with. Any help or advice would be great.
Thank you for your time.

Some buttons on keyboard dont work

Are you sure it's the MB, and not that your keyboard is just broke?

Try a different keyboard.
Barrow your husband/wife's, a coworkers, etc.
Ask them, and be sure to unplug it first..

If it's a PS2 keyboard what happens is some times the socket connection goes bad if you are rough (like your keyboard cable is too short).
Or it's less likely but the keyboard controller chip (integrated in the chip-sets now).
In either of these scenarios trying use a USB keyboard instead.

Update of laptop

Windows Millenium Is not recommeded as it was never very stable and has no support anymore

Although it also has no more support , Windows 2000 Pro is far more stable and requires the following minimum system specs

Minimum Requirements Computer/Processor 133 MHz or higher Pentium-compatible CPU Memory 64 megabytes (MB) of RAM recommended minimum; more memory generally improves responsiveness Hard Disk 2GB hard disk with a minimum of 650MB of free space

Look Here and you will see that you laptop can have up to 144MB memory. 16mb is non removable and the rest is by replaceing the current 64mb stick with a 128mb stick instead.

See here for futher upgrades

This caught my attention

" picked up a 30GB Toshiba disk today, but wasn't sure it would fit. some old BIOSes won't recognise large disks. I was worried that my Tosh would only recognise up to about 8GB, which is apparently the largest disk size you can fit in the model below mine.
It was, however, just plug and play. I swapped out the disks, noting that the new disk is half the thickness of the old one, despite having 15 times as much storage, and powered up. Starting up the RedHat install showed that my Tosh was now equipped with a 30GB hard drive. Pretty cool really, for a Pentium 133."

Yes hes running linux , not windows but it looks like you can have a 30gb drive in the laptop intead of the 2gb.

Cant helpw ith upgrading the processor though , your usually stuck with what you got in laptops

Hope this helps

Toshiba Tecra 510CDT Laptop

this is mainly dependant, on what input/outputs the laptop has at the rear. If it has a printer port, or USBs. you need to be able to physically connect, laptop to printer, as i,d imagine it has no bluetooth or infra-red et,c.

Thankyou for using fixya.

Memory Up-Grade

hi there, the memory slot is under the main case. lift the computer up from the front and you will see a panel on the left with two small screws. undo these two screws and you will see the memory card. they have also two small screws that must be removed to be able too remove the card.
