laptop does not post: (then it is a hardware problem)

  • it may be the screen has a problem and needs specialist's attention (cannot be done via text) but try the following first.
  • check battery is seated correctly and that the power pack is functioning
  • if the battery has gone flat and the power pack is not working ,the laptop will not start.
  • Remove any hardware you may have installed prior to you having the problem.
  • remove the screw(s) holding the cover plate on the back of the laptop where the ram lives remove the memory sticks,
  • clean the gold edges both sides, with rubbing alcohol or a pencil eraser, and re-insert them, (not an ink eraser as it will do damage)
  • swap them around if you have more than one, try one at a time.
  • if you only have one, borrow one from a friend or try the ram in your friends laptop ,if that's possible,
  • or take the ram to your local pc shop and ask them to check it for you (they may do that for you)
  • if you can establish that the ram and power pack is ok, and anti virus and recovery /system disc's do not work,
  • it may be that the motherboard has failed .
  • Generally a dead hard drive would not stop the laptop from posting.
good luck with that and let me know how you get on.

I need driver of toshiba ES1 424PDE


I can help you with your Toshiba ES1 424PDE driver problem.

Please review your make and model number information. My research is turning up Dynabook ES1 and also Techra R10-ES1 model numbers. I believe more specific model information is required to provide you with the preferred drivers. Also, operating system preference may be relevant.

I hope that helps.

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.

I need to upgrade my DVD drive in my Toshiba Tecra A8 EZ 8313


you have to remove several parts that cover the dvd drive enclosure
the keyboard is one and the power and light display at the top of the keyboard is another section that you have to remove they pop out and are not hard to remove but be careful as they have little clips that hold them in once they are out you will be able to see what screws you need to remove.
