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!!

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
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.
1. Remove all USB devices such as printers, mp3 players etc etc.
2. Remove the power-cable and the battery
3. Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds
4. Put the power-cable back in but not the battery and none the USB devices.
5. Turn the computer on
again $ again try 3 or 4 time to powerin on with ac mode,if not powering on then try it in backup mode with support battery if u dont have battery backup then get a battrey from any other laptop but it must be same model if powering on then change your adapter and try again if then also not warking go to nearer vender or service center.
