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.

    Hi djnick989,
    how are you,
    Wow that was a fast reply!!, thank you so much.
    As I am not in the least techno savvy,I am struggling to follow your advise!, think you may be typing too fast for me!!ha!. I am in England so you may have to shout louder too!!.
    I am brave enough to try replacing the parts myself, but you seem to imply I need many?!, and they will be expensive??. I do have a good computer, I just like a challenge and do not like throwing stuff away. The tecra has been upgraded to Win/98, in the past. Have to say, these old laptops are much more substantial than the newer variety, I am tempted to press on. Where do I find the video ram?.

    Thanks again djnick989. xliliz4th

Westinghouse LCD TV - broad vertical green and blue lines

try to go to the factory reset and see if that helps. If not, you can then check your connection. if you use component (red, green and blue for video and red and white for audio), make sure all the color matches when you plug it in. if everything have been checked then you need to replace the main board and it should correct the problem.

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.
