Having problems with your Toshiba Tecra S1 Notebook ?

Toshiba Tecra S1 - nothing coming up on the screen ??

\015 Good morning all :o)\015\012I have 2 of these laptops. The first when it chose to display, only posted to boot password \342\200\223 since I don't have the expertise to overcome this, I bought another with a broken screen, which I've managed to get to post to windows xp, so know there's no 'master' password. Ram seems to be a problem on both, so I assume the ram is defective, since I don't get the beep sequence when removed. I've now dismantled both, and built a unit with the password free motherboard, and good screen. However, even though the board is running, fan is fine, and cd-rom kicks in (though it seems to abruptly stop when starting to run a fresh copy of windows xp) \342\200\223 I can't for the life of me get anything to come up on the screen ?? Is it possible to just plug the motherboard (with nothing else on it except the fan) into an external monitor, to check whether the bios is posting ??? Or do I need to add anything else to make this happen.\015\012Many thanks for your time :o)\015

Answers :

You can certainly plug the motherboard into an external monitor with all essential components included to do diagnostics as this is exactly the method used on any bench.

No screen This is in regards to your answer earlier, I have tried all of those and that same screen keeps coming up. I have put the operating disc in to reboot it that way but nothing even comes up recognizing the disc. The screen comes up then it counts down and then goes to the winows loading page and then does it all again and again. I can see a quick flash of a blue screen but then it does the same thing. I cant get to it. Any ideas? Thanks for the help.
