Bad RAM probably bad system board. You say there are flashes usually you can check any available beep or flash codes. Sometimes they will tell you what has malfunctioned. Check the mfg. website or manual for diagnostic codes. As for the external monitor you will have to press function F4 or F8 or whatever function key you have with a monitor picture to switch to the external display. Hack

Toshiba tecra p5 up on black Screen on PCI EXPRESS ERROR can't boot????


If you can't boot to the bios, you are in major trouble. You can try and see if the manufacturer has a bios flash program you can load on a Flash drive to flash the bios...you will have to research that on another computer, obviously.

I have a cracked screen (toshiba tecra m2) and have an opportunity to buy a replacement screen from a tecra m2 S630 that is broken. Are the screens interchangeable?


Can't answer your screen question, but I can propose a workaround - your Toshiba laptop has a
monitor port on the back - you can plug in a standard monitor, and ignore the cracked screen
temporarily until you can replace it. hope this helps

The monitor port is the 15-pin analog VGA D-shell (female) port.

I have a tecra m2-s730 that displays the boot screen then back light goes out but you can still see image..what could be problem


1) test it to an external source like a tv, or external monitor through the vga ports, svideo ports. If promblem is solved, and everything seems to be going normal, then your screen is history, bad backlighting and needs screen replacement. 2) Bootup screens seems to work fine, ( like it has backlighting and light all work fine and normal) but when it turns over to loading your o/s and it get dark even with a external monitor, then it's a driver issue or your vga chipset is bad and you will need to replace your motherboard, ( in this case it is best to buy a new laptop). 3) Bios error issue, bios has become currupt somehow, you can try loading default value given in the exit tab in your bios menu. Load and save and exit. See if it works, if not your VGA chipset is screw, and motherboard will need to be replaced to fix this issue.

I have a Toshiba Tecra-M2-S410 machine, and it does not turn on anymore. When I remove the battery and plug it in, the power light turns green as expected. When I press the power button, two other lights...


Hi mohammad - seems the LCD of the laptop is gone bad . as u said u gets the light on the laptop and also sound and then it goes dark - shows possibly the LCD gone bad .
Give a try with this if you have a computer in your home - on the back of the monitor you will find a VGA cable (probably with a blue color end which goes to cpu ) unplug it from cpu and plug it in the laptop (side of laptop you will find a same input VGA slot blue color ) and boot your laptop after turning on both (monitor and laptop) if you find the screen on the monitor then it will be sure that your laptop LCD has gone bad .
On your laptop if you are not able to find the boot screen also that refers to LCD brokerage -anyway try the above you will be sure ..

Tecra M2 doesn't boot is it a processor problem?


given the symptoms, it points to motherboard.. if it was processor, video or ram. it wouldnt boot at all and you'd just get error beeps from your laptop. i'd first try resetting the bios, by removing the bios battery for 30 min, then putting it back in. if that doesnt work try changing it out, usually costs under 8 bucks. if that doesnt work then I would change out the motherboard, if its cost effective.

Computer wont turn on


Voltage problem. Try removing all power connections (including battery) for 10-15 minutes +. Then plug in and see if it turns on. If not, you may have to take it somewhere to get internal components checked.

Toshiba tecra 8100 no display


this problem occurs in the video chipset,because when you hook up the external vga there is no display right?
if you hook up the vga into the monitor it would come display if the problem only with inverter or lcd.

Hi,
this appears to be a screen problem. either the cfl tubes on the way out. Or The Inverter.
The cheapest initial trial, is to replace the inverter, as this is the simplist to replace, it,s at the bottom centre of the screen, and can be accesssed by removing the screen bezel.
If you imagine the cfl tube being like a florescant bulb, and the inverter being the starter. if the inverter isn,t kicking up enough power. the bulbs not getting fully boosted up. also pink tinges can sometimes relate to inverter or cfl ( Laptop monitor tube/bulb ) if you search the internet their are tutorials, and links to these components. alternatively is to buy a replacement screen ( l.c.d panel ) however you might be looking in excess of £300 Or $600.

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.
