Portege 7200: DVD Dock stuck!

I have a Portege 7200 with a DVD dock. After having docked and undocked several times without problem, the PC is suddenly stuck fast and catches will not move. Everyone had and solved the same problem please?
Thank you


Hello Jane

Do not have this good old classic, but I've seen several times. It's really hard to tell what happens there, but according to your applicant, I presume that there may be simply mechanical problem.

  • Re: Need technical information about the CD/DVD with Portege 7200 series writer

    just to clarify my last post should have read: CD and DVD rw burner compatible with the laptop above.

    all the best john.

    The Portege 7200 cannot be upgraded with a CD/DVD burner (drive).
    You can buy a dock like [this one | 5QQcmdZViewItem http://cgi.ebay.ca/Slim-TOSHIBA-Portege-7200-Dockstation-Built-in-DVD-CDRW_W0QQitemZ170200420841QQihZ007QQcategoryZ14008] which provides a feature of CD/DVD drive!

    I m not 100% sure if this docking station can be improved with a CD/DVD burner, but you can try to contact the ASP in your country for details.
    Guys might provide information whether or not this player is available!

  • Problem starting Portege 7200 - stops running and the light flashes

    I have a portege 7200 with the docker dock 2 dvd, no problems until this weekend, when it stopped starting.

    its plugged into the power outlet and it starts the first windows 98 after the screen time, works my virus checker then the screen goes black, computer stops and the led on flashes.

    ive tried to boot from a CD, using the battery, reinstall windows, all I can think about

    Thanks for your help.


    Have you tried to run the notebook without the docking station?
    If this isn't the case, then try it.
    Also, try to remove the battery for a while. Then try to start the unit only with the power adapter.

    But generally, if the LED flashes then this means that there is a hardware malfunction.
    The flash code can only be read by the authorized service partner. Guys are able to find the hardware failure.
    Well well, in this case, if the procedures described above don? help I recommend you contact Toshiba service partner in your country.

    Good luck

  • Can Portege 7200 CT - I install Windows Xp instead of Windows 2000?


    I have an old Portege 7200, Pentium III, 600 MHZ, RAM 320Mo.

    I use Windows 2000, remains stable and running (you know, never touch a system running...)

    However, due to new software that will work with Windows 2000 (Internet Explorer, anti-virus, software video / Cam and a little more) I need an OS-update. I have an old Windows XP-license (SP 2) and the idea of installing WinXP on this laptop.

    The power system should be fine, however, I've not found anyone with WinXP on this laptop. Someone at - he live with that? It work? What I have to do a BIOS update? I have version 1.80 and found here in the care of the side a 2.0 zip file

    Thanks a lot in advance - Andreas

    Hi Andreas,

    Theoretically, you can install what you want on your laptop but I checked the Web from Toshiba site and it seems there are no XP driver for Portege 7200.
    What does that mean? Well, you can install XP but if you the drivers you need to collect these external Web sites, such as Intel or Realtek drivers. Maybe you will find all the drivers that you need.

    In my opinion the update of the BIOS should be one if it of necessary. This means that if the laptop works well, this update isn't necessary.

    I hope I could help a bit. :)

  • Update CPU Portege 7200 is available?

    Hello Toshiba-community!

    I have a Toshiba Portege 7200 with the following configuration:

    -P3 600 MHz
    -320 MB OF RAM

    However, the laptop works well, but the processor is pretty slow.

    So I tried _upgrade CPU_ with a faster P3.

    My questions are:
    Is this possible?
    What are the requirements?

    A lot, I searched the internet but I have not found a solution for this issue.

    Do you have a? :-)

    Thank you very much in advance!

    Usually these improvements are not easy, and in most cases to possible and undesirable.

    In most cases the different CPU can result in problems with the BIOS.
    In addition, the higher CPU speed would produce more heat dissipation that could lead to overheating.

    That is why it s not advisable to upgrade the processor

  • Portege 7200 - HARD drive upgrade

    I have a Portege 7200. It was just given to me. There is therefore no documentation or manuals.
    I'm interested in upgrading his old 4 GB HARD drive to something more modern. Can someone tell me what could be done to it? I mean - if standard 2.5 "HDD is Ok, is there a limitation of the motherboard/BIOS card as to the maximum size, etc.. ?

    Thanks in advance!


    The manual can be downloaded from the Toshiba European page;

    Here, you should go to support downloads & -> user manual for Toshiba.
    In the upload form, you must choose;
    Archive-> Portege Archive-> Portege 7xxx--> Portege 7200

    Maybe you will find some info in the user manual.

    But I want to provide some details too.
    To my knowledge, several versions of BIOS supports a HARD drive size limitation. I mean that not every size of HARD drive is supported.
    I have goggled a bit and discovered that the Toshiba MK1214GAP HARD drive can be used with the Portege 7200. It s a 12 GB HARD drive that supports ATA-2/ATA-3/ATA-4 interface.

    Maybe you could test it.

  • Which display driver used with Portege 7200?

    I bought the Portege 7200 series machine and I have a huge problem with the display driver. According to the books of Toshiba, I should use Trident CyberBlade e4 - 128 pilot 3D. I have d/load (Win 98 SE) from two different versions of two different websites (display-win9x - 650554022icd.zip) and no joy. Can install it. Tried with Win 2000 and no joy either.




    Turn off your laptop around to find a label. There is the exact number of prodcuct and name!

    Please report it on the forum.

    What w98 version do you use? Win98 or win98SE?

    Is the operating system version of Toshiba OEM recovery?

  • Portege 7200 multiple problems


    It is my last ditch attempt to try and get some sort of difficulty for my Portege 7200.

    I will try to explain as best as I can, so this is.

    I had a system dual boot (Linux & Win98), did not want Linux HD so formatted and reinstalled Win98.

    Everything works except for a few problems that I hope you guys can help with.

    1. at startup (before windows logon) I am invited with cannot find VREDIR. VXD and a few other VXD files.

    2 screen dislikes the adapter PCI/AGP of Trident Cyberblade e4-128. Only the driver installed, that followed the instuction on the Toshiba tools and utilities cd-rom. keep getting invited to change my display at startup configuration. Once logged into windows screen does not match the entire screen (black border). Have used the companion disc one receives with the Portege to stretch the LCD. The screen is bigger, but the display quality is bad.

    Can anyone help as I am at a loss on any one of the above point.

    Kind regards


    P.s. If there is more clarification or information then pls let me know and I'll try my best to get it.

    most likely, these files are not at all. This message usually when these files become 'independent' in the registry, or when certain network/protocol device missing files.
    The problem with these files occurs generally when you install something in the network control panel that does not install correctly.
    If you have recently installed a network adapter or Protocol in your system, remove it and reinstall it.
    The IPX protocol is often also responsible for this message.

  • Portege 7200 - HDD replacement/upgrade

    I want to upgrade my Portege 7200 with the standard 12 GB of HDD to a 60Gb, my questions are:-
    1. do I have updated BIOS?
    2 Will fit a standard 2.5 notebook HARD disk drive 9.5 mm inches (for example 60 GB 2.5 "IBM/Hitachi Travelstar 7 K 60 ATA100 7200 RPM, 8 MB)
    3. is special caddies or cable required.
    4. someone at - it instructions or is simple.

    Thanks in advance for your help.


    regarding your first question:
    BIOS update is useful, but I don't know how much GB the most recent BIOS for P7200 can handle! Try a test!
    2. normally a 2.5 inch HDD fit. I don't know who the old we have size, but you can compare it with the OE ew!
    3. no
    4. normally the change of HARD drive is not difficult. The problem is "the BIOS detects the new HARD drive and the right size." But this only experience could help you!

  • Booklet: Question about DVD docking station

    IM new to computers
    The booklet and the dvd docking station
    When transporting the computer you will need to carry the docking station, if you are using DVDs.
    The computer keeps the cradle in place while on the move as an all in one device?
    Thank you


    Yes the Docker and laptop are 2 separate elements which can be locked together and remain together until you unlock them. They can be transported as a single unit or 2 separate. Its a very good design as it all works as a single unit with the battery powering the two units. You need to distribute the docking station, if you want to use the DVD player but its not that heavy and much smaller than some portable DVD players
