When you try to start my Portege 2010 (OS is XP), I finally get a blue screen message


This is even after using the recovery CD disk full, to rebuild the laptop. Any ideas what is causing the problem and how it can be fixed would be appreciated?



Hello Rob

It is very strange that this stop error message occurs after the recovery procedure. Please check these two articles about this stop message

Maybe it will help you to know exactly what is happening.

Good bye

    Unfortunately, there is nothing to see. The recovery image is created for each laptop model and may not be used for the different laptop models. Can you imagine the situation you can use each medium recovery on each laptop model?

    Each cell phone has hardware specific, and because of this, the recovery media are specific for particular laptop model.

    By the way: which CD-Rom device that you use?

  • Faulty display on Portege 2010

    I have a 3 years Portege 2010. When I use it today the display started to go white, up and down, and then went black. When I restart it I get the Toshiba logo and the first two screens to boot Windows, but then the screen goes black. Sometimes I get more than others before the screen goes black - for example sometimes, I get as far as connecting Windows then it (i.e. Windows) freezes. Sometimes it crashes on the first screen of "Toshiba", before it crashes. Sometimes it gets past the boot selection menu and then I get a BSOD (IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL).

    I also noticed that if I press the two ends of the (extended) battery the display begins to break up.

    This sounds like a faulty screen or a faulty connection? If the latter is this something I could try to fix me? If not, what is the approximate cost of the setting of this kind of thing?



    There are a lot of different issues with the display relly. Really, I n know where to start with comments. ;)

    I presume that you can install the recovery image to get rid of BSODS and check how it works with the external monitor. I guess that on an external display it won't you have problems with the black and white display.

    As you know on this path, it is not easy to give any kind of diagnosis. If everything works well with external display problem is LCD. If the external monitor, you will notice some strange behavior, it may result from the graphics chip on the motherboard. The test please a bit more intensively.

  • Blank white display on Portege 2010

    I have a Portege 2010 and I have a strange error with the display. Most of the time it works perfectly, but sometimes it shows just a white to white.

    Just by pressing Fn + F5 has no effect on the screen, but when I plug in an external monitor in (even if it is disabled) and press Fn + F5 a couple of times that restores normal operation.

    Is there a particular part of the system that I need to check?

  • Portege 2010 - bad BIOS (block3)

    I have a portege 2010 with a bad bios
    on normal startup, it goes to screen
    BIOS (Block3) is damaged! (Call the repairman).

    so I tried to reflash the bios in the usual way.
    do a disk with
    biosfile biofca6t.com
    and start either with the flashing the BIOS button (just to the left of the space bar)
    or by pressing any key on-screen "block3.

    It does not load the program chgbiosa.exe. who reads the bios file
    Hot flashes and it recharges
    Reading BIOS file...
    Data erasure and writing the BIOS...

    ROM write successful!
    Utility finished
    Then it restarts

    but unfortunately. nothing changes. He still goes to the display of block 3

    so I think I can have damaged the chip of the bios on my hands.
    Since the successful re-flash does nothing...

    So I decided to check if the chgbiosa actually do anything.
    so, during the writing process, I unplugged the power.
    (incomplete writing process) and I'm done with a (block 1)
    damaged. An another bios update later.
    and we are back to (Block3)
    so it does not write in the bios
    DO NOT TRY THIS: can erase the part "failsafe" of the bios
    so the question is. Where should I go from here.

    I'm willing and able to unsolder the chip and flash also
    but I don't have a bios not 'complete' user flashable part only of it since the official updates of the file...

    can I order a new chip preflashed somewhere?

    can I somehow totally clear the bios user box then it reflashing?

    can - I somehow replace the bios (more than the standard chgbiosa way?)

    can I transplanted the and of a motherboard Portege 2000
    (the failsafe will start so I can flash with a bios P2010?)

    I can start another tool, describing it as "chgbiosa.exe" on the floppy drive, which can be useful

    can I do the smaller biosfile, so it won't need block3 (remove the logo toshiba etc.)
    from the rom file?

    Any suggestions are appreciated

    This notebook is a project of the company. I am prepared to do anything...

    So many questions, and most of them must be answered by technicians. I really think you need professional help. I recommend you to call the nearest Toshiba service provider and ask for help.
    To be honest, I don't think that you will be able to order this chip anywhere. Speak with the service.

    By the way: mainboard renovated for Portege 2000/2010 with work well chip BIOS, I found on eBay for 39 euros, so if you can not do anything and BIOS repair buy new motherboard, Exchange and be happy.

    Furthermore, I Portege 2000 and it's really nice laptop.

  • Update CPU is possible on Portege 2010

    Hi, I wonder if it is possible to upgrade the processor on my Portege 2010, I work as a pc technician so I have no problem to do the job.
    If so can what models I use?

    Thank you

    Upgrade CPU on the laptop is really not simple and delicate. I think you know this because you're a pc technician.
    The Portege 2010 seems to be an old I didn t find many details on this device, but I found out that this laptop was equipped the PIII-M (Mobile) 866 MHz 133 MHz FSB processor.

    What you could do is install and hardware diagnostic tool to find out which chipset is supported. Then check the details of this chipset (maybe on Intel page) and which could be supported by the CPU.

    However, I'm really skeptical that the laptop will be stable after the upgrade of Mr. overheating could be a big trouble!

  • Portege 2010 - clicks of death? -Perhaps the HARD drive is dead


    A few minutes ago, I tried to start my portege 2010, who worked a few hours ago. Now, I do not even past the BIOS screen because the disc is of strange noises, as leaders try to enter the post, but fail. I have to admit that yesterday the system froze for no obvious reason but I didn't know that this was due to a failure to come, I just rebooted the machine and it behaved like any other day. So I'm rather perplexed, how the disaster could hit so suddenly. The portege is out of the warranty period, so I guess there is no way get around to buy a new drive. I wonder if this problem is a common problem among the Portégé series, I think I remember an article published online by indicating this.

    Hello Steffen

    If Toshiba STAS 10 000 or more laptop computers Portege 2010 and you find one or 10 other users with the same symptoms of HARD drive, it cannot be any kind of common problem. Common problem is something else.

    According to your description, is it really possible the HARD drive shows signs of dysfunction. All you can do is to watch carefully what happens in the next few days and if the HDD feature fails, you must buy a new HARD drive. All that s!

    If you will be able to start it in some way I recommend you back up all your data (e.g. on USB key) before the HARD disk fails completely.

  • Satellite L505-13Z - BOOT error

    Hi all, I have a Satellite L505-13Z. After the hard drive recovery, something went wrong and I had only the F12 page.
    I used the recovery DVDs. It worked for an hour to install win7, then he did a reboot and I saw the windows screen, so that it starts again and stopped working: whenever I turn it on, I have the F12 screen, choose a place to start. Hard drive is detected, but if I choose what it I got the "Boot error" and back to the same page.

    I would try Hiren boot to check if the hard disk is OK or not. How will I know if it's only the hard drive or something else?

    Thank you

    I used a bootable cd with Hiren and each test on hard disk and RAM are OK, no errors.
    I inserted the DVD to see if he had the option to repair an installation, but do not, so I installed again. In the end, we asked me to remove the DVD and restart; I did and I went to loop: win 7 was updating registry, reboot, win 7 has been updated to register...

    I wondered if the DVD has been damaged, but is no way to download from microsoft, a Windows 7 copy, because when I insert my response series is to ask the supplier...

    What can I do?

  • Portege 2010 & Vodafone 3G Datacard

  • Linux for Portege 2010 SD card reader driver / controller

    1. where can I find it?
    2 - is the SD card controller in this support of laptops SD Host Controller Specification of the Association from the SD card to http://www.sdcard.org/HostController/index.html?

    As far as I know for all those people who want to use Linux on a Toshiba laptops, Toshiba built an Infrastructure to support. Check please the content of the following pages:

  • Windows XP Installer does not not for updates or MS Office 2010. Error says Safe Mode, but I'm not in it.

    Windows XP Installer doesn't work is not for the automatic updates or MS Office 2010. Error says Safe Mode, but my machine is not in Mode without failure.

    When I try to run MS Office 2010, it starts a dialog box "preparing to install...." "even if I had used it for a few years. In the end, it fails and tells me whether I'm in Mode safe or I need to reinstall Windows Installer, I have done several times.

    I can automatically download updates and they seem to be installed, but all fail at the end.

    Any ideas on how to address this problem? Yes, I know that it is probably recommended to buy a new PC, but I need this machine operate fully for the next months. Then by reloading the operating system does not, either. He told me that my XP disc is the wrong version.

    Thanks in advance for any ideas.


    1. What is the exact error message that you receive?
    2 have you made changes on the computer before this problem?
    3. all of the updates fail to install?

    (a) click Start, click run and type services.msc and press Enter to open Services.
    (b) click the Windows Installer service, and then click Properties.
    (c) if the startup type box is set to Disabled, change it to Manual.
    (d) click on OK to close the Properties window.
    (e) right click on the Windows Installer service and then click Start. The service should start without errors.
    (f) click on the file menu, and then click exit.

  • Restart problems, error Disk Boot error, if please install disk and press a key

    Original title: problems of Reboot

    When I restart my computer it say "Disk Boot error, if please install disk and press a key:?"


    1. you remember to make changes to the computer before this problem?

    2. have you changed the BIOS boot device?

    3. What is the brand and model of the computer?

    This could be related to:

    · Startup options is not correctly defined in the BIOS

    · A non bootable CD is in your CD player

    · You don't have any boot device

    · You have installed a new hard drive

    · The hard drive is not properly connected

    · Your system files have been infected

    Change the boot order in the CMOS (BIOS) settings so that your disc is the first in the list.

    a. restart the computer.
    b. new computers often display a startup (or boot) menu. In the start menu, choose "Configuration of the BIOS," or "BIOS settings," or something similar.

    Procedures vary depending on the manufacturer of the BIOS. Usually, you must press a key (for example, F2, F12, DELETE, ESC) or a combination of keys immediately after you
    turn on your computer but before Windows starts. If the Windows logo appears, you must try again by waiting until the Windows logon prompt appears, and then stop and restart your computer again.

    c. the BIOS configuration screen appears. On the BIOS Setup screen, choose the option called "Boot order" or something similar. Startup command settings can also be saved
    under "Advanced settings" or something similar.
    d. Select your drive from DVD or USB drive as first boot device.
    e. restart your computer and see if the problem is resolved.

    : modification of the BIOS/complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) settings can cause serious problems that may prevent your computer from starting properly. Microsoft cannot guarantee that problems resulting from the configuration of the BIOS/CMOS settings can be solved. Changes to settings are at your own risk.
