Hello,

I also have a tecra 8100 and my machine developed this exact problem. After much work, I finally figured out that it was a problem with the memory apparatus that holds the memory in place after it is installed. The memory modules are held in place by a cheap little plastic clasp. This clasp was no longer holding the memory far enough down in place and was causing an error when my machine tried to POST. As soon as I wedged something between the RAM and the access panel on the back(thus pressing the memory farther down in place), the machine worked fine from then onward. This is only a possible solution, don't take it as gospel. It's only one man's experience with his laptop.

It could be a hard ware isuse. Try this.

If you have extra memory or removable Ram ( usually located on the bottom under a panel) Try removing it and starting it, with the ram removed. Then try putting it back in and starting it. If it works, it may be bad memory or it just needed to be reseated. Do this also with the cd drive and wireless card if it is removeable.

also try this with the battery, plug it in and remove the battery and see if it starts.

alot of laptops, like computers will not boot if there is a hardware issue.

The Beeping is a code. The number of beeps and how it beeps usually indicates an issue.

you could look the beep codes up on the toshiba website is the support center.

Good luck.

My Toshiba Tecra M5 won't boot. The power light flashes on and off, the fan starts but nothing is on the screen. How can I get it to boot?


Well, it sounds like you have a hardware problem. Start by removing the Ram and hard Drive from the machine and insert a boot disk. If your not getting the Tecra Splash screen when you press the power button, the screen that appears before the windows boot screen, you may have a bad Monitor or Burned background lamp or faulty BIOS install or upgrade. Any of which will give you this problem.

When powering up I get 2 short beeps and one long one.


The beep code is signifying either improperly seated/ bad ram or improperly seated/ bad video card. Since you replaced the RAM I would say it would be a bad video card. Replace & reboot. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

Toshiba Tecra 8100 will not boot, even the toshiba boot screen not displayed

Thats a link to info about bios updates on the tosh website. If you're not getting to the toshiba screen then POST has not completed which means that either there's a hardware problem or the bios is corupt. If you're sure the RAM is ok try flashing the Bios.

Problem is though, to make the bios update disc, you need a working computer.

and, err, It'll probably have to be a toshiba!
(sorry, not my fault!)

The inverter board on your laptop is failing. It is a board that changes DC to AC voltage, and powers the backlight. It needs to be replaced.
