Question about Toshiba Libretto 50CT Notebook

1 Answer

I recently damaged the initial win95 installation. As an attempt to fix the problem, I tried to upgrade it to the win98se but the installation crashed in the middle. Now, I try to install win 98 se from scratch but it won't boot from the win98se boot disk. The Libretto 50ct displays the BIOS boot messages until memory test is completed. Then I hear FDD turning forever and the LCD displays only one blinking cursor on the top left corner. I tried various CMOS setting for IDE and display. What could be the problem with my Libretto 50ct?

Just a bad screen. There's not a cost-effectve fix for these things due to the age of this laptop and on top of that, these screens were incredibly rare even when they were first sold. If you must replace it, then your best bet would be to hunt down a whole unit (eBay would be your best bet) - it might take a while but your target price should not be over $20 delivered. That'd be your best bet.

Hi mattbarrett2 !
Hi , I was in a similar situation a while ago , meaning I needed to back up a Win95 HDD .
I succeeded by taking the drive out of the desktop and connecting it to a win 7 pc . I first tried by putting the drive in a external USB box and connecting it to the Win7 machine . It was a Quantum drive . The pc recognized the drive in the Device Manager but I couldn' access the data in " My Computer " . Then , I connected the Quantum inside my Win7 machine , directly to the IDE port but not using the power plug yet . I booted the computer , waited for Win 7 to be settled and connected the Quantum to the power plug and it worked . I was able to transfer the full content
( 1 GB , ha ha ! ) on a dvdrom and format the Quantum afterwards . I didn't need it anymore but I could have easily placed it back into the Win95 unit and install a new supported OS on it .
Maybe this will help you ?
Best regards ,
fanaudi .

How to install drivers in windows 98 SE loaded win98 in a new PC, need all updates, drivers, etc.


why win98se? I was a fan of win98se but ...

all drivers for winMe are ok.
use google with "MBcode win98se drivers download" . You may try with winme instead win98se . You'll encounter problems if your mb is very old and you need to properly install isa cards .

win98se,mb drivers, sound, video,lan in this order. dont forget that win98se accepts drivers from 95/98/ME . Them must have the inf file . I liked to made manual instalation of every drive (update driver, browse to location of inf file....).
