Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite 5105-S501 Notebook ?

Help hey, i am a tech, been doing this for 13 yrs. this is crazy. i just setup xp on this laptop, and it was perfect, loaded all drivers and programs. today i put in an internal wireless card, that was taken from another toshiba, just a regular atheros card, and the screen never came on again. no bios screen, nothing...and i have to push the envelope button to power on now, not the power button...if i plug in an external screen, its perfect, but im not sure i ever see the toshiba screen now. any

    • BIOS has been updated to apply Intel's errata: "A timing marginality may exist in the clocking of the ALU which leads to a slowdown in the speed of the circuit's operation. This could lead to incorrect behavior of the ALU. When this errata occurs, unpredictable application behavior and / or system hangs my occur."

I do actually see the toshiba screen on another monitor. when i was setting up the laptop, i tried many times to get into bios, by pressing f1. it wouldnt let me in....as it turned out, it booted from cd, so i forgot about it. tried again, and it totally wont let me in.
\015\012i also noticed that the fn keyboard commands dont seem to work, and the wireless light on the front is never lit anymore, even if its in the on position. on the keyboard, a few of the fn keyboard commands look like they change the screen to be external, and there is another that i dont know what it does, is it possible that the fn menu may have just turned off the screen, and now i cant get it to go on?
\015\012how do you reset the bios, i have left the battery out for days, and it wont reset, and there is no reset hole on the bottom.
\015\012is there any way to do it other than taking the whole thing apart again to remove the bat, or change the jumper?
