Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

Info you asked for

\015 Thanks, but I don't see the pin it explains in the section you emailed. It is a Toshibae Satellite 100CS and the model # is PA1217U V. The it says part # PA1217U-S2W. Serial #04664140-1. It looks old as can be. Going to try the flashlight thing and also the separate monitor. If you can think of anything else I would appreciate it.Thanks, Sid\015

Answers :

Hi Sid, I can find information about the notebook but am unable to find any type of support from Toshiba. This includes drivers & possible bios files.
