Please see below for instructions on reset the BIOS password on your old Tecra.

  • Download KeyDisk from http://www.cgsecurity.org/keydisk.exe
  • Format a 1.44MB floppy disk and leave in your floppy drive
  • RunKeyDisk, this will create a special floppy disk to reset your laptop password.
  • Insert this disk into your Tecra laptop and reboot, the laptop should find the disk, boot from it and ask you for a password, press ENTER at this prompt and it will ask you for a new password.
If you have any further queries, please do not hesitate to ask

Try taking the battery out and use only the AC. If everything turned out fine, it could be a problem on the battery or on the port.

many toshiba laptops used a 15 volt supply, but look at he label attached to the bottom of the unit. it should spell out what voltage and what current (in amps). if a 15 volt supply is used that can only supply 100 milliamps, while the laptop needs more than 1000 milliamps, the laptop will play dead

I have had this on an iphone 5. Apple sold me a new phone as it was not worth repairing and it was out of the 12 month warranty. Its possible to order a new part and do it yourself but unless you are totally confident and have the skills to open up your phone and reassemble it then its just not worth it.

What is the actual question?

Toshiba Tecra... • Answered on Feb 02, 2015

look closely at the keys along the top of the keyboard (usually called F keys). one of them should have a tiny sun icon and the key beside it will have a larger sun icon. hold down the "Fn" key elsewhere on the keyboard while pressing the one of the sun icon keys to brighten or darken the picture. the sun icon keys may also be located on the Arrow keys (<-- --> etc.)

Could be a very easy fix....does your computer seem a little to warm when this happens? If so the fix for this could be getting a better fan.
Sometimes when laptops run too hot they have a safety that shuts it off to prevent damage from heat.
You can find laptop fans pretty cheap on some computer part sites, also making sure your laptop is free from dirt and dust helps keep the temp down.

When does it open on its own?Sometimes it is easy to be press the open button as you close it which of course opens it straight away.It can also fail to lock closed if not opened further than its initial amount that it does open.To close it after it opens you need to draw it back to rearm the mechanism.
