Toshiba Tecra 8100 PIII laptop not booting

Answers :

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.

\015\012If 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.
\015\012
\015\012also try this with the battery, plug it in and remove the battery and see if it starts.
\015\012
\015\012alot of laptops, like computers will not boot if there is a hardware issue.
\015\012
\015\012The Beeping is a code. The number of beeps and how it beeps usually indicates an issue.
\015\012
\015\012you could look the beep codes up on the toshiba website is the support center.
\015\012
\015\012Good luck.
