    Thanks - I was away for a week and forgot to come back and check this. I was on the phone with Toshiba for an hour today and they couldn't come up with anything - at least I got authorization to take it to an authorized repair center.... we'll see.

This sounds more like the D-to-A converter is faulty. This should be covered as part of the warranty. I believe that this is a hardware problem.

Compaq Evo N610c bootup password protected. Its my friends computer I told him i can get the password off. its about 2 years since he used it. (its not stolen) we tried for 5 hours on and off to remember...


Remove the main battery, then the CMOS battery(coin cell under the keyboard IIRC). Unplug the laptop and leave it for 15-20 minutes. This should clear the password out OK.

Hi, my old laptop Toshiba Satellite A100 is


I take it that the recovery disc came with the laptop in which case all the drivers will be there.

I'm more concerned that it is "riddled with viruses and adwar" which you can't remove!

Why?

Do you not use an Anti virus program?

What's going to happen to your new computer?

I have a 3 year old Toshiba Tecra M4 Tablet Laptop, and my colors are inverted, anything that should come up black, comes up red. Text is okay, but images just don't look right


It would be oen of three things... in order of cost;

1. LCD Invertor has gone bad
2. SCREEN has gone bad
3. Motherboard has gone bad

In either of the three it would most likely take a toshiba tech to pinpoint exactly the problem and do the repair. Although if you are handy enough you can get the parts and repair it yourself.

Friend's new laptop webcam not working on windows live messenger


Hi,
I have a toshiba satellite too. I had the same problem when i had just bought my laptop. It seems like it is a software or driver problem, nothing wrong with the hardware. Do this once or twice and this problem wont reoccur, it hasn't for me again. Go to device manager and disable the webcam, restart the computer then go back and enable it. Now the webcam will for fine with all instant messengers. I remember donig this few times when my laptop was new. Now its been over a year and this problem hasnot occured again. I hope this helps you too or your friend.

Daughter can not get laptop connected to the web from her dorm.


Its possible that the firewall on her computer stops it. The firewall may be thinking that the scan is an attack. Try disabling it.
