Download a program called Netstumbler.
This will show if your wireless is doing anything at all firstly.
If the card is internal then check if the wireless cards antenna's are connected still. Sometimes they are not on there correctly, just sitting there and look like they are connected.
If you can see the access point with this program then check the router to see if the access method hasn't been limited locking out your card from connecting. Normally that is listed in the wireless access list by MAC address etc.

Networking is more complex then most realise, but the info above should help you to start with.

This item was designed fro use with Windows NT4 or Win2000 so XP may have driver errors.
If you have upgraded XP to SP3 try updates from Windows for a fix, otherwise re instalation of the original OS may be needed.
Have you run CHKDSK/F to check for hard drive errors? That is most likely to be the problem as if the drive is formatted to anything other than FAT32 you may be getting read errors.
Nice old machine. It will be a shame to have to ditch it.

This laptop came with 128mb ram, you can safely install 2 sticks of 256mb for a maximum of 512mb with no bios update.
You need pc100 sodimms.
Amazon or ebay will be the best bet as this memory is expensive now from a retailer.
I found 256mb sticks for under $10 buy it now on ebay http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/256MB-SODIMM-PC100-SDRAM-256-MB-PC-100-LAPTOP-144-Pin-/190411543153?cmd=ViewItem&pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2c55699271

When I unplug my Toshiba Tecra 8200 with windows XP, the screen becomes dark, but not too dark. Please help!


Check your power setting preferences - although I am not familiar with your computer, some laptops reduce power to the processor and screen when unplugged to save battery power. You can normally change the settings so that it runs normally whether plugged in or on battery (although of course the battery will then not last as long)

Toshiba Tecra 8200 Laptop. when i type on the Keyboard some Characters do not work. A,D,E,I,K,L,P,R,S,T,U,W,X,Y,Z, and Back space do not appear on the Screen, all the rest are ok.


You probably need a new keyboard, but before ordering one go into the control panel, device manager and uninstall the keyboard.

Restart the computer.

If you get the same results, it's time for a new keyboard.

You can get a replacement from ebay for cheap and install it yourself. Usually it's 3-5 screws. very easy diy project.

Toshiba tecra 8200 power problem


The power button is on the LEFT side of the computer, under the Ctrl key, slightly closer to you. It is covered by a sliding door which slides BACK to open and expose the push-ON button.
