Power goes off for no apparent reason but power still being supplied by adaptor

OverheatingWhen the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermaloverload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is theproblem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make surethe vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed airto do this.

Yep. U had a software issue initially - there was nada wrong with your bios. Apparently, the bios update did not go well and now you have a piece of junk on our hands. Without a proper working bios no computer will boot up. And on a laptop the bios chip is soldered on the motherboard so it cannot be readily removed and replaced.

Time to go shopping.

I can not hear my laptop.

You can try accessing the CMOS setup during boot-up to see if the on-board audio is enabled. CMOS memory contents can become corrupted for no apparent reason. You may have to reinstall the OS.

Toshiba Tecra A3X Not Booting from USB CD ROM

Your laptop is apparently unable to boot up off an external usb source. Only newer equipment has this provision in the bios. Since you cannot boot up from usb the only way you can recover your unit or do a clean reinstall or repair of xp is to replace the internal drive that is allegedly defective.

Replacing the optical drive is fairly easy and does not involve massive disassembly of your laptop. And any cheap drive will work provided it has the same physical configuration as the old one.
