20 Most Recent Toshiba Tecra M4-S435 Tablet PC Questions & Answers

Error codes are only of use by the Toshiba Technical staff and of no use to you as the consumer. If you report that to the Toshiba Technical personnel, they can transcribe the error number for you. If a blinking light comes on when charging, sometimes it indicates No Charge or the power cell inside the computer is not accepting a charge and will not function. You might replace the power battery if it has been in there for several years. They do tend to die after a while. As for the computer, it should operated without the battery. If it fails to boot when the power adapter is plugged in, then one of two issues are common. 1, the power adapter is faulty and needs replacement. 2. the computers CPU may be damaged by a power surge and that is bad news.

The bleep cold be just a bleep device separate from the speakers. It looks like a round piece of aluminum with a large dot of white solid past on it with a wire attached. 1st. make sure the volume is up all the way. Then try using a headphone just to make sure the sound card is working. If the headphones work then it should be a setting somewhere. Sometime the switch that turns off the speakers when headphones are plugged in gets stuck, try plunging them in and unplugging them out while music is playing. If they don't work the sound card may be blown but it is still possible it is not. Also, try Keyboard shortcuts for mute and UN-mute. Try going to control panel and bring up the sound app and try different options in there for mono and or what ever it has, you may find the answer there. If the headphones work but nothing else works you can always plug external speakers in the headphone plug.

Toshiba Tecra M4-S435 is Tablet PC. Windows XP (Profession) has no option of touch screen.
In order to use the feature, you need to install Windows XP Tablet PC Edition or you may install Windows 7, which supports this feature and you would definately be able to use stylus and touch screen, as I have installed Windows 7 and its working fine with all the drivers etc.

Hope it helps! Good Luck!

You'll have to open up the laptop and get free access to the motherboard. Usually CMOS batteries on laptops are soldered onto the motherboard so you'll need to have some soldering skills to do this.
About the price, usually it's in the $10 range, but the best way to go is to get the original battery and visit the local wrist watch store or a specialized batteries store and ask for a replacement.

When you replace the CMOS battery, you must wait about 10 minutes with the old battery removed, before fitting the new one (if you had a problem with the error message before) - when you fit the new battery, plug the tablet in and don't turn it on - this will give the new battery a chance to power up all of the CMOS on the board and settle down. Then turn it on, wait for the error message about the date and time being wrong, set the time correctly and the problem has gone.

Somehow the left ALT key is stuck in a pressed position. Usually when you press left ALT and the letter underlined in a menu, it deploys that menu. In the File menu, the F is underlined and in the View menu it is the V that is underlined, hence the behavior.

Hope it helps.

This information is intended for experienced users. It is not intended for basic users, hackers, or computer thieves. Please do not try any of following procedures if you are not familiar with computer hardware. I'll not be responsible for the use or misuse of this information, including personal injury, loss of data or hardware damage. So use it at your own risk.

A. By Using the Motherboard Jumper:

In most motherboards CMOS battery is soldered, which makes it difficult to remove the battery. In this case we use another method.

Almost all motherboards contain a jumper that can clear all CMOS settings along with the BIOS password. The location of this jumper varies depending upon the motherboard brand. You should read your motherboard manual to check its location. If you don't have the manual then look for the jumpers near the CMOS battery. Most of the manufacturer label the jumper as CLR, CLEAR, CLEAR CMOS, etc.

When you find the jumper, look carefully. There will be 3 pins and the jumper will be joining the center pin to either left or right pin. What you need to do, is remove the jumper and join the center pin to the opposite pin. e.g. if the jumper joins center pin to left pin, then remove it and join center pin to right pin. Now wait for a few seconds and then again remove the jumper and join the center pin to left pin.

Make sure to turn the PC off before opening the cabinet and resetting the jumper.

B. By Using Software:

I have found that BIOS/CMOS Password Recovery Tool is the most effective.:
BIOS/CMOS Password Recovery Tool is a program that works instantly to remove any lost or forgotten BIOS/CMOS password. Simply boot your PC to DOS and execute the program, and get access to forgotten BIOS/CMOS passwords in just seconds

If battery is charged you do not need a cable. Otherwise use the adapter that must certainly shipped with it. Plug one end of the adapter cable in the computer and the other to the wall socket.

Hope it helps.

The video card has unseated or is fried due to overheating. The typical repair is to replace the entire motherboard which will cost about US$600 from a technician. The graphics chip GPU is soldered onto the motehrboard. I ahve heard some people cooking the GPU to reflow the solder if it is an unseated GPU chip that came loose but I have not tried this myself. This is a common problem of Tecra M4's and I have been through this problem 4 times in the past 4 years, each with expensive motherboard replacements.

There should be a little hole somewhere on the tablet. Stick a pin in it then it should factory reset it. Or if you can, create a new user then go to settings and factory reset it from there.
