Question about Toshiba Tecra M2 Notebook

1 Answer

Drfting cursor The cursor will from time to time drift off to the top right corner or the lower left one, and will not come out, even with firm appilication of pressure on the accupoint. Other times it will move grudgingly but not hold steady. Then it will suddenly behave normally for a while. Using the touch pad is then OK. The same problem occurs with a USB mouse. I tried placing the cursor on the minimize button, top right, and touching the center of the touchpad; this seemed at first to work, but soon the drifting resumed. Any solutions would help.

This is a well known occurance with laptops and is not something you can fix. Occasionally the manufacturer will release a patch to try and help, but this is very rare.

Where do I turn off my laptop


Power button is top left corner of keyboard above the "Esc" key.
If you are trying to shutdown from Windows 8, follow these steps:

1. Mouse over the little gadget in the lower right corner of the screen. (You can also move your mouse cursor to the upper left corner; same result. Or, you can press Windows-C on your keyboard.)
2. In the slide-out menu (known as the Charms Bar) that appears, click Settings.
3. Click the Power button, and then click your desired action: Sleep, Shut down, or Update and restart.

The date and time shown on screen at bottom right are wrong. How do I put this right?


If you use the trackpad to place the arrow/cursor over the time in the lower right corner and click the right button for the trackpad, a menu should appear, giving you the option to select "adjust date/time". Select that option an click the left button for the trackpad. A menu should then open in a new window with the options for changing the date, time and time zone. There should also be the option available in the menu somewhere to have the date and time automatically set through an internet connection to a "time server" at one or more computers listed in the menu.

There will also be a control panel which will give you access to the settings for the date and time, if you want to go through the control panels in your operating system. Generally, the method starting from the time in the corner is the easiest option.

Just installed windows 7 with an external cd/dvd and now it will only boot with the cd/dvd attached. otherwise a black screen appears with the cursor in the top left corner.


when it boots to a flashing cursor in the top left corner and everything else it working, this means that it is NOT finding the operating system on the hard drive, many times due to boot sector issues.
Make sure you set your hard drive to main or first startup device.

I only get a flashing cursor in left top corner even after trying restores, formatting and using recovery disk. I've checked out the hard drive and the computer for virus. No problems. What can I do?


The flashing cursor is there to tell you that the BIOS couldn't load the OS. Reinstall one more time. If even that it behaves like that then the hard disk is dead, replace it.

Your touchpad is going. :( Outside of replacing it, you'll probably want to disable it and use an external wireless mouse. There are models now that have a tiny receiver than can be left in the USB port when the laptop is stored away. Not a fix, but a workaround.

Black screen, blinking cursor in top left hand corner


Could be a number of issues, incl unseated processor or a faulty hard drive. First off I would remove mains & battery, remove covers from underneath and reseat any memory or processors you can find - by reseat I mean just take out and put back.If this fails, I would look to price up a new hard drive before condemning the machine.
