Gentlemen - I'm looking for what I thought was a simple thing - yet finding the Holy Grail I think would be easier:
How do you access the BIOS screen on startup on this notebook that is running XP with service pack 2? Just the keystrokes. On my desktop you hold down "delete" - but that doesn't work on the Toshiba. THANK YOU!!!
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repair professionals here in the US. click here to Talk to a Technician (only for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need. Goodluck!

I have a paperwhite and never seen it do that. I have seen it do some other odd stuff with a book though. Have you checked other books to see if they are ok? There may be a program error for that book. Back up to first page of a chapter to make it easier to find your place again. Delete the book from your kindle. Then look the book up on Cloud listing and try downloading again. You may have to go back to you account at Amazon and download from there. If it still does it's change thing contact support to see what they say about it.
Next to the volume control buttons, there is a slide switch that can be set to either unlock the screen orientation or mute the sound. These choices for this button are made in the setttings (gear icon) of the iPad. An easier way to access this function is by the control panel which is accessible by sliding one finger upward at bottom middle of your ipad screen
I've not flashed a bios on a Fujitsu notebook, but have on lots of others. Most of the time it involves booting to a floppy disk or a USB device containing the bios flash files. It's a simple thing to do, but why do you want to flash the bios? I tend to not flash the BIOS on a system unless I'm having some sort of problem.
Mine hasn't frozen (yet) but if this is a more or less "permanent" freeze there is a reset pinhole between the power button and the usb connector. If this is in intermittent problem, the only thing I can say is that the device is poorly designed, the screen is just not very responsive and the CPU chip must be under-powered so it is very slow to react. If you tap-tap-tap a lot on the screen or the power button you might be overloading the CPU. Mine seems to freeze from time to time but eventually "catches up" and then starts working again. Sorry, but I definitely put this product only a half step above the junk category. I also own an Ipod Touch and holy cow there is a world of difference in quality and performance between the two.
Oh yeah - you might try calibrating the screen but I doubt that it will help much. The "calibration" suggestion really seems like more of a distraction tactic to make new owners think they are really doing something cool to make it work better out of the box.
If you can still return the machine for a refund I suggest you do - lots of new tablets andf "readers" will be hitting the stores within a few weeks and Best Buy will be selling these for $50 just to unload them!
This sounds like corrupted Windows and will require a software reload, however you might try this to make things easier in the mean time... (written for XP) Right click in the taskbar (usually at the bottom of the screen). If 'Lock the Taskbar' is checked, click it to uncheck. Next, click 'toolbars' and 'Desktop'. This should put a new toolbar in your taskbar called Desktop. You should be able to push this all the way to the right. Now when you want to access the desktop Icons, they will be available at the double arrows on the right of the word Desktop. I keep mine this way all the time so I can access stuff on the desktop even when it is covered with open windows.
Is there any chance the video output is switched to feed the rear VGA connector? ie the screen is black due the video being routed away from the screen. Try hitting F5 key. Can you hit the Delete key to try and enter the bIOS screen? (it may be another key such as F1 or F2. See your Toughbook manual) Can you have someone make you a bootable USB thumb drive and try booting up with that? Its also possible that the hard drive has failed, but usually the BIOS POST check will initiate and indicate a failed hard drive or bad RAM etc Can you remove the 2.5 inch hard drive? Usually its accessible under a removable panel under the laptop. Feel free to ask more questions. Cheers, Steve PS have you tried the discussion forums on the Panasonic website?
Hi, man. Don’t worry, there are many people forget their admin password or lost it, and there is a popular solution for those who have been locked out by computer. For this solution, what you need is a second computer thatcan connect to Internet and then freely download Windows Password Recovery 6.0 at http://www.recoverlostpassword.com/products/windowspasswordrecoery.htmlWith it, you can create a reset CD which can be used to reset Windows admin password without erasing anything.
This could be as simple as a loose or poor connection somewhere. There are a couple of things that I would look at. Firstly, try another ac mains adaptor incase the power lead is intermittent. Next you could look at the power socket on the back of the laptop. These can play up and sometimes are responsible for poor connections. The above will be made worse if you have removed the battery or if the battery is old or poor. Put a decent battery in and keep it charged even if you are using a power adaptor. If there are breaks in power the battery will act as a reservoir and prevent dropouts.
You say that it crashes when you move it, is it ok when you leave on a table and operate it?
The only other thing I can think of is that there could be a loose connection inside the unit. I would check out the connection ribbons before pulling out chipsets or motherboards. Good luck..
