Having problems with your Toshiba Tecra 8100 Notebook ?

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

\015 I have a Toshiba Tecra 8100 lap top. It will not boot past the POST (power on self test). The Toshiba screen does not get displayed. The power lights are on. The hard drive is spinning and is accessed for a short time (1sec). No video displayed.\015\012If I power up with the F12 key depressed the screen will say "Ready for bios update. Insert the CD and press any key when ready"\015\012I can not get into the setup screen via ESC, F1 or any other F key.\015\012When I power down if I press the power button and let it go I get a series of beeps 1 long beep and 29 short beeps. If I press the power button to power down and hold it in I get 1 long beep and 3 short beeps. I have tried a different memory card in slot A and Slot B. Same problem. I installed an invalid memory card into slot A and the screen told me to place a valid memory card into slot A. Re-seated the processor and still the same problem.\015\012 \015\012So I know the screen works. The HD drive is spinning, the CD is accessed.\015\012I wish I could find out what the BIOS is telling me. I am sure it is telling me exactly what is wrong.\015\012Any help would be appreciated.\015

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!

Blank Screen Worked fine. Had a blue screen and rebooted. On reboot the screen displays nothing. You would not even think it was on. Sometimes it will stay on (when plugged in) and others it will not even begin to boot up regardless of lack of display. It seems like the screen is dead and the machine is struggling without a power lead. Even with the power supply it still displays nothing even if the power lights stay on and it appears to go through booting up (sound). It is a Toshiba l300 laptop

I have an older Gateway solo and I'm having problems with the display. I was given two of them to put together to make a working one.

It would try to boot but nothing would show up on the screen and the cd drive wouldn't even work and neither would the keyboard. I then took a different approach and t
