I Have Toshiba Tecra 8200 Laptop . N Hvng Problm When I Install XP In My Laptop An Error Appear on My Screen That CdBoot Error. Plz Tell Me How Can I Rid Off this error and install xp Awaiting of...

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.

I inherited a Toshiba Tecra 8200 laptop. It boots to a black screen asking for a password. Is there a way around this? Thx

Hi, try pressing the ESC button during boot up, this will allow you to start in safe mode, from where you can change your passworg, via the control panel. (Sometimes its the Del button on sertain machines)

How do i format my toshiba tecra A2 pta20e-07701qen

You have to enter bios when computer boots. Not sure on Toshiba it might be F10 or delete or F1 or f12. If all else fails try them all till you get into the bios. Go to advance and go to boot options. You have to set CD rom as first boot option and hard drive 0 as second boot option. That should let you boot from a CD.

Toshiba TEAC CD-224E BA - not playing CDs at all

Just replace the drive - the Teac CD-224E is housed in the SelectBay housing and any Teac CD-224E that came out of Toshiba will do. eBay would be your best bet. If you pay more than $10 then you must be a tourist...
