Toshiba Satillite A100 "TBX Error"

Hi, My laptop (Toshiba A100) is having a problem. It seems that It can't even load BIOS, but keeps showing "TBX error" on the top-left handside of the screen. I have found out it happens when the CMOS data becomes corrupt, but don't know how to fix it... Please help me!! Cheers, Leo Kim

    Dear PcExpert,
    We are experiencing exactly the same "TBX error" problem - also with a Toshiba Satellite A100. Do you mean by service station, "toshiba service station", or can any other specialised computer outfit solve the problem as well? I am asking because we live in Malawi, and are very far removed from any Toshiba service. Any further details about which chip and how exactly it can be reprogrammed?
    Thanks - Christophe & Sabine, Lilongwe

This needs BIOS Reprogramming. Go to the nearest service station for the Chip to be reprogrammed.

How to fix TBX Error on Toshiba Satellite a205-s4707

Take out battery from it, and re-insert it after 15 minutes or so. This must make it a hard reset. If it too doesn't help you, make sure there is a software corruption has been occurred. Re-install the O/S is the only solution. Electro help

Why TBX Error in left Monitor

Your cmos has become corrupted.
1. remove AC and battery power
2. press power ON for more than 30secs (around 1min is good).
3. release and attach battery/AC
4. power ON as normal

This should clear the cmos on Toshiba laptops, it can be glitchy. If it doesn't you could possibly have a faulty cmos battery, or it may need to be reset manually which will require opening the laptop.
