Hmmm..that means that your bios needs some attention...it's not too hard to look into that, and see that your disks and other stuff are aligned. You been in the Bios before?

Guys, i got my toshiba lap top i had to put my laptop in my friends house so enterd a password quickly before leaving the next day , i try to enter the password and it doesn't work . i tried to fix it ...


If the password is a user or administrator password, reinstall the OS.
If the enter password request is displayed just after the system powers up, you must take the computer to a Toshiba Service Center to have the password erased.
For an HDD password, nothing doing. Get a new HDD or scour the Internet for some software that can retrieve the PWD.

Toshiba tekra 8100 on off knapp var finns den ?


> on off button where finds it?

The ON/OFF could a switch that "slides" about 50 mm,
or it could be a button with an 'I" inside a "circle".

The pictures at:

http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba-Tecra-8100/Tecra-8100-FL-inverter-big/remove-replace-FL-inverter-00.jpg

and:

http://www.pcarena.hu/pricelist/oriaskep/toshiba-tecra-8100-570.jpg

do not show any "button" on/near the keyboard.

The picture:

http://www.recycledgoods.com/images/s_p_12957_5.jpg

does not show any button on the back.

So, look for a "slider" or a "button" on the side(s) of the case.

I'm not clear on your description, so here goes:

If it showed the Toshiba start screen, then asked for a password, then your hard drive is password protected.

If it showed the Toshiba screen, then asked for password, and you entered it, and then it goes "insert disk", then your hard drive is passworded and wiped.

If the first thing it does is ask for a password, then the password is in the BIOS.

Toshiba Tecra 8100 will not boot, even the toshiba boot screen not displayed


http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com/cgi-bin/ToshibaCSG/faq.jsp?z=234&service=EU&from=faq_selection&CFID=BIOS&FID=TRO0000000b07

Thats a link to info about bios updates on the tosh website. If you're not getting to the toshiba screen then POST has not completed which means that either there's a hardware problem or the bios is corupt. If you're sure the RAM is ok try flashing the Bios.

Problem is though, to make the bios update disc, you need a working computer.

and, err, It'll probably have to be a toshiba!
(sorry, not my fault!)

Blank screen


COuld be a simple case of the screen catch hole where the lid locks shut getting stuck (fluff ?) jab it a few times with a paperclip. Worked wonders on an old tecra I had. If it is not this it may well be the inverter which needs changing - this is a kind of starter / voltage regulator fot the FL tube.
