'Bad RTC battery, check the CMOS' on Satellite Pro 6100

Hello... I just got a Satellite Pro 6100 and when it is started I get an error message:

Check the system. Then press the [F1] key

I can still use the laptop for about 15 minutes, but then it crashes. I did some research and discovered that it is the power supply Board. But my laptop is out of warranty and the reminder is now officially over.

Y at - there someone who can help me?
Thank you

Hi Liam

Hmmm... I think it s not a Council but the battery of the CCF.
Take a look in the user manual. There you should find something that exactly the message is displayed if the battery RTC (BIOS) is not charged.

The RTC battery, you must connect the power adapter and should run the laptop for about 24 hours.
After that the main battery has been charged, then the RTC battery starts to load.

It will take a little longer.

  • How to clean the cooling on Satellite Pro 6100 module?

    Since my laptop for some reason stop (explained in my last post), I read messages from others who are similar to my problem and some of the responses that they was that they must clean the cooling with a vacuum (vacuum) module.

    So I was wondering how to clean it and where is it? (I m not an expert on computers)

    I am not owner of a Satellite Pro 6100 but I saw this laptop on several pictures and it seems that the fans are placed at the rear near the CC.
    If you try to vacuum dust and debris from these grids of fans.

    I found also found a very detailed instruction how to remove and open the Satellite Pro 6100. http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba6100/Toshiba_Satellite_Pro6100_dismantle_1.htm

    BUT if you have no experience, you must do it yourself. The best way to ask someone who knows what to do!

  • Need to find the cmos on Satellite Pro 2100 battery

    I have a laptop that is not keep date/time settings and I need to identify the laptop to find the correct instructions to take apart.

    The brand is a Satellite Pro SP2100, model PS210E006P9-EN number, but I can't find this brand/model on the Toshiba site. The closest I can find is Satellite 2400-103, part number: PS240 - T 014, 1, that seems identical.

    I tried to use the identify tool of Toshiba to detect what is the laptop, but that fails to provide results.

    I also need to find out what food is for this unit as the current is defective and exposed wires.

    The adapter of current with her is PA3201U-1ACA, the problem is that this card has another card on the end to fit the power plug to the back of the laptop. The connector at the end of PA3201U is too thin to fit.


    This laptop is very old and the name of this machine is: Satellite Pro 2100 PS210E

    > I have a laptop that is not keep date/time settings and I need to identify the laptop to find the correct instructions to take apart.

    Usually the CMOS battery can be charged. You must connect the power adapter and the laptop must be powered for about 12-14 hours.

  • Re: What position the caddy a Satellite Pro 6100 use?

    I recently acquired one of the old machines out there I have an I was wondering where can I get the internal carriages of?
    Second, this model uses a hard drive spindle adapter?

    Thanks in advance!

    This SP is very, very old model laptop so I put t think you can order somewhere try to check eBay. You will find lots of different parts for old models of laptops. In the worst case buy a defective SP 6100 and use it for parts.
    > Secondly, this model uses a hard drive spindle adapter?
    I n t think so, but you can check it yourself. You can remove very easy HDD. HARD drive cover is fixed with a screw. When you remove the HARD drive cover, pull the disk block HARD on vinyl of the HARD drive battery handle.

  • Need help with the upgrade of the WLAN on Satellite Pro 6100 minipci card

    Hello everyone, I desperately tried to update my WIRELESS card on my laptop SP6100, since it was delivered with a card minipci wifi-b, which is not fast enough today. s standards.

    Each piece of the Toshiba official documentation mention the SP6100 has a mini-PCI type 3a slot, so can accommodate two minipci card a type 3a and 3B wifi.
    But unfortunately for me, I discovered the hard way that it is absolutely NOT the case - I was put back by a fortune by buying costs for a type3 intel minipci wifi card, which does NOT at all on the laptop.

    I spent an hour in unnecessary calls to the customer service from Toshiba, that I had to convince PCMCIA certainly isn't the same as miniPCI, and Mini - PCI cards ARE CERTAINLY replaceable by the user. She insisted that she could not be changed by the user of the system, but by toshiba themselves.

    Could someone please please advise me on the type of wifi card that are built with the SP6100 laptops? I think is it AGERE brand, in the form of WLAN minipci card. I know that it IS certainly NOT miniPCI type 3.

    Help, please! Thank you.
    And besides, every place that I tried so far appears only sell type3 miniPCI cards,
    Other types of Mini-PCI cards are available to retail customers?

    Infinite thanks!


    You must understand that your model of laptop is quite old and right now the market wasn't available standard b. I'm pretty skeptical that you will be able to use the standard WLAN with G maps due to compatibility issues. On this forum, I founded several threads that people write about the problems of upgrading older models of laptops with the new wireless network cards.

    In my opinion the best solution for you is to use a PCMCIA WLAN card. The installation should be easy and you can use the wireless network with faster data transfer adapter.

  • Satellite Pro 6100 - battery icon indicates 0% and courier mouse disappears

    Hi all

    I'm new to this so hope I'm posting in the right place.

    I have the laptop above Satellite Pro 6100 and am having some problems that I hope that you guys may be able to help me with.

    The first problem is that the battery is fully charged, but the icon on the screen says 0%.
    He fled feeding okay and if you disconnect battery lasts for all time and a half.
    If I try to defrag it does not have enough power?
    So I have to defrag in safe mode.

    The other problem is that the mouse disappears off the coast of the right side of my screen and it takes forever to find him!

    Would appreciate some advice or solutions like like the laptop and not really wanted to get a new one at the moment.

    Oh am running windows at home.
    Thanks in advance.

    Update the BIOS and set the default values.

    You could try reinstalling the common Modules for Toshiba and energy savings.

    If all else fails, there is the opportunity to back up your data and run recovery. If it happens again on a new installation of Windows, it may be a hardware problem.

  • Satellite Pro 6100: message "RTC bad battery appears, check CMOS.

    When I move my 6100 SP it freezes, and then when it is restarted the message "bad RTC battery is displayed, check CMOS. I also noticed that when the machine hangs the fan operates at high speed and the bottom of the machine and the keyboard gets very hot.
    Need your advice.


    Did you change or replace the RTC battery?
    The error message looks like a death or a bad RTC battery.
    You should try to charge the battery (plug the AC adapter / CC)
    Try to enter the BIOS setup and check all options. You can set the BIOS default settings.
    Check if it helps. If it's not, so I guess there is something wrong with the RTC battery and it should be changed.

  • Satellite Pro 6100 does not recognize the single battery external power

    Whenever I have start Satellite Pro 6100 Win XP Pro with standard battery mounted and connected to the power supply computer laptop does not recognize the ext battery supply single supply and during 'start-up' goes into hibernation.

    By pressing the power on button laptops "wake up" and indicate that the battery is empty or may not even decide when completely loaded, then says connect the station even if still connected, looking under Toshiba console when it runs shows running on battery when still in the power of the ext?

    I have two batteries and both give the above symptoms even when I remove ext of laptop power always runs with power supply by battery but no light orange or green for battery.
    Any ideas?


    Is your AC adapter malfunctions or there is something wrong with the power supply to electronic s laptop.
    In the first case you could purchase a new compatible AC adapter and could check if the laptop can run successfully.
    The second possibility is a serious hardware problem, but in this case, the laptop must be checked by an authorized technician.

  • Satellite Pro 6100: cannot get into the BIOS and does not start

    I have a portable Satellite pro 6100, en I was trying to boot from an external USB hard drive. When I activated the second hard drive option in the BIOS it has stopped booting all in all, I can't even get into the BIOS Setup more. All I get is "In touch with tomorrow TOSHIBA" screen with the icons to select the method of priming preferred manually after it's just blank screen with a cursor blinking in the upper left.

    Press ESC or F8 before to turn usually results in fast beeps sounds.
    Press tilde (~) before turn is reflected in the remaining space screen (not even the home toshiba screen appears) and slow Zens sounds.

    Apart from that I can't really do nothing at all.
    I tried to reset the BIOS by disconnecting the battery CMOS/RTC (hoewever, we call it) of the motherboard for a while with no results.

    Turn on/off without the results of HD internal in a white screen with an ERROR 'IDE #0.
    I can always stop by pressing the power button, you don't have to bother on the external hard drive it past I don't even want it works more.



    I agree with Graeme. Your HARD drive is probably faulty. Sorry, but I don't think that you will be able to use the external HARD drive. The option in the BIOS is not for EXTERNAL HARD drive is just, I guess, for disk HARD placed in select Bay.

  • How to remove the bios password on Satellite Pro 6100

    I got this Satellite Pro 6100, I would like to install windows xp on it, somehow once I opened it, it's just a black screen with the password.
    I removed the hard drive and I was able to access it with my computer, means that the password is not for the hard drive, but rather the bios.
    What is the password of the bios? How can I reset it? I removed the Green battery which I think it is the RTC battery, it would make? How long should I wait for the settings to be reset to zero?
    Y at - it no jumpers to reset the bios... ?
    I don't know what my son used a password, so I need help with this...

    Is it possible to kill the bios settings... ?

    Thank you


    It seems that the machine has a BIOS password. And it seems that there are only 3 options:

    1 Google for the procedure how to remove a BIOS password
    2. ask your son for the password
    3. send your machine to an authorized servicepartner and allow them to remove the password, which means that you pay money for it.

  • Satellite Pro 6100 - battery acting very strange.

    As mentioned in the title, my laptop battery is very strange.

    The symptoms are:

    When the battery is flat after only 7-10 minutes he turns not, however if the battery is removed and placed in the laptop, the laptop will start as it has never happened.
    Not only that, but the bonus after the first can indefinitely until this that loaded into an OS and immediately after starting start the laptop stops due to an apparent lack of power, when there is power always, enough to do the same thing again. Also, the battery can still start even after being just in a freezer.

    This reacondioned back to normal battery or is this safe to use battery?
    Thanks in advance!


    I guess that your battery is old like machines of this Satellite Pro 6100 and maybe it can't be charged more. In this case, your battery should be replaced.

    But even if the battery is faulty, you should be able to use the device connected to the power adapter.
    So even if the battery is removed, you could power the unit with the mains.

  • Satellite Pro 6100 - how to change the date and time in the BIOS


    I received a satellite pro 6100 that had not been used for some time. Windows does not work then he reinstalled with the good drive.

    When I try and windows 'enable', I get the error 32777 and the laptop is unable to connect with the activation servers that a google leads to believe me that the date and time are incorrect in the bios.

    I know that Press esc to access the bios but there is no option to change the date and time in there. I put the date / the correct time in windows, but this does not seem to synchronize with the bios. I've updated to the latest version of the bios, but this is not enough.

    How can I change or update the time in the bios?

    Thank you


    I doubt this time and date setting BIOS does affect Windows activation time Windows doesn t affect it in my opinion. There must be another reason for this problem.
    You can activate Windows by phone?

    Normally the date and time in the BIOS can change you if you mark the date or time, and then press on + or - to change this. Sometimes you have to press PageDown/to the top according to the model of BIOS or laptop.
    Usually in the configuration of the BIOS you will find a brief info how changing the values.

  • Satellite Pro 6100 - after updating the BIOS, it does not


    I am trying to upgrade my old of Satellite Pro 6100.

    I started to upgrade the Bios via download from Toshiba (using WIN) site - OK downloaded zip files and installed, machine then stops. Problem, it does not restart - it's so now I have a laptop 'death' that is not responding to any key I tried.

    Any suggestions of resuscitation?

    Already I've updated from XP to SP2.

    Thank you



    It sounds like that the BIOS update has failed and your laptop can start t again. But try this workaround:
    Remove the AC adapter and the battery and then wait an hour. After that reconnect the adapter AC/DC and battery. Try to start the laptop.

    If it doesn t work I think that the motherboard needs to be replaced or you go to an authorized service provider. Technicians can reflash the ROM module
    But maybe you can find a motherboard of second hand cheap on eBay

    Good bye
