My Toshiba Tecra M5 won't boot. The power light flashes on and off, the fan starts but nothing is on the screen. How can I get it to boot?


Well, it sounds like you have a hardware problem. Start by removing the Ram and hard Drive from the machine and insert a boot disk. If your not getting the Tecra Splash screen when you press the power button, the screen that appears before the windows boot screen, you may have a bad Monitor or Burned background lamp or faulty BIOS install or upgrade. Any of which will give you this problem.

I have Toshiba Tecra A8-S8414 and i had to get rid of over 200 virus and now i was trying to reinstall windows xp professional to wipe out my computer and reinstall windows. When it goes to restart windows...


At what stage did you reboot? Did you boot from the xp install cd to install?

What you want to do is boot from the cd and then have xp reformat the drive. That will give you a clean virus free system. If you started the install from windows by just inserting the cd then you may not actually get rid of any hidden viruses or rootkits or other nasties.

The only problems with reformating is that you may loose documents and so on if you have just the one drive. On my A8 I put a 320 gb drive in but it is paritioned to C D Eand F drives. I do not store anything on drive C and I have a set of drivers saved off on one of the other drives. So if I have a problem that my antivirus won't kill then I reformat, reinstall and am back up and running within a few hours. This is how we setup any client machines that want to make sure they loose as little as possible if they have problems.

On a A8 booted from the CD it should take about 25-30 minutes from the time you boot until you are up in Xp . At that point you need to install the motherboard INF files , the video driver and the network drivers and then everything else. Those three are the critical ones.

From your description I would suggest you try installing again. I just saw this so you may have fixigured out the solution to it. Just make sure it is plugged it and let it grind away. The odd one will take a long time but normally that 35 mins is about bang on.

Hi there i have a toshiba tecra a8 want to reformat it don't know how to do it.I believe it is built in


You need to have a working CD/DVD Installer of your OS like Windows Vista or Windows XP or the like.

Now, you need to start your laptop while the disc installer is in your CD/DVD Drive. Then it will automatically boot from the CD/DVD drive to start the installation. Just follow the on-screen procedures.

Laptop won't start


Majority of the time it's the motherboard. You can try booting the computer with the battery out and also try reseatting the memory. Other than that, there isn't much you can do. If neither one of those solutions works, then you can safely assume it's the motherboard and it will need to be replaced in order to get the laptop running again.
