Screen/hinge Portege M100 problem
I have a Portege M100 and have a slight problem with the screen
The screw on the left has out & disappeared. This left the very "wobbly" screen and it seems to have jumped off a plug or two, just on the left side as the case/wallpaper sometimes seems to gape slightly face down by the hinge.
I would try to replace the screws & it back to the 'normal' but I can't find instructions or advice on how fits in the screen - can someone help me to clip it together & rplace the screw?
(please don't make comments about how old he was, that's what I have & I can't afford to replace it at the moment!)
I think that there are no manuals or instructions how to replace something on a laptop. These technical documents are not for the public, they available only allowed for the service provider.
So, I would recommend an ASP because there you can also get the right spare for your laptop and technicians will help you fix it. :)
Dear all, my Portege M100 is still!
I am writing (via VNC), but unfortunately
the backlight on the screen seems to have gone out.
Is the laptop still under warranty and how do I get this problem?
Do I have to do it manually?
Unfortunately there is no a lot that you can do everything alone. I assume that FL converter is defective. Contact the Service partner in your country. They can help you.

I recently had to return my laptop to get a defective hard drive replaced and have found it difficult to re - install all drivers for W2K. I don't hold any recovery CD.
After installing W2K, Manager of devices has about 11 items requiring pilots (and a single unknown device). I installed these drivers on the Toshiba site for this model but could not do any support to see if they were to be installed in any particular order. Device Manager now seems to be correct, but I still have problems with the Modem (Toshiba Software Modem). The diagnostics tab reports that the modem could not open a port.
Only COM1 and LPT1 appear under Ports in the Device Manager.
Sett you up a new system without a recovery CD, you need to install the drivers and tools in the correct order.

Laptop for my wife, it's a Portege M100 3 or 4 years, which is seems a good machine, although the hard drive failed and had to be replaced recently.
However, there is also a problem with the battery charging.
The machine works very well when connected to AC power whether the battery is or not, but as soon as you remove the power cable it stops working immediately, it is to say everything, including the fan stops immediately.
The sign of the battery on the top edge of the screen/cover blinking orange.
I figured it was the battery that had given up and bought an another toshiba (IE not a compatible but the real thing) and he slotted in but still.
This problem above the hard drive has been changed also.
Any thoughts or ideas?
Thank you very much
> The sign of the battery on the top edge of the screen/cover blinking orange
Are you sure that it is a LED battery?
AFAIK the battery LED indicates the State of charge of the battery.
Green: charging completely charged and orange way. But in both cases the LED does not flash/blink.
Only the power adapter LED will Flash orange if feeding malfunctions and the voltage is abnormal.
But if the battery LED flashes then I guess this code refers to the battery failure.
You should always buy a battery recommended by Toshiba and not other 3rd party products.
The manufacturer of the HARD drive is not important, but if the battery is dead so you can buy one that is part supported by Toshiba
I've used Ghost to recreate the image other desktop computers and laptops without any problem, boot from floppies, CD ROM BACK or by using network services PXE to boot the machine and load the PC - DOS comes with Ghost and the Ghost BACK customer.
However, with the Portege M100 (which is the only machine of Tosh, I've tried so far), I managed to get the loaded PC - DOS and the Ghost client begins to load, but hangs at the splash screen and is unusable, requiring a reboot.
Has anyone else had this issue or know of any fix that I can use to allow me to manage my Portege OS with Ghost.
Thanks for any help.
Well, I had a similar problem with another unit. I solved with formatting the HARD drive completely.
I put t know if this procedure will solve your problem, but you can try it.
Hi, I have a Portege M100 and I'm trying to update my BIOS to version 1.40 to 1.50 by using the windows update utility.
But when it gets to the screen where it says update BIOS preparation, place appears a message saying that the user is not authorized to update BIOS?
1 user account is only available on the pc and it's privaleges admin, using Windows XP sp2.
Any help would be apreciated.
How have you tried to upgrade the BIOS? From the windows or have you used the traditional procedure?
According to this document, you must use the traditional BIOS upgrade procedure.
IOS http://eu.Computers.Toshiba-Europe.com/cgi-bin/ToshibaCSG/FAQ.jsp?z=234&service=eu&from=faq_selection&CFID=B & FID = TRO0000000b07
But why you want to upgrade the BIOS?
Have you had serious problems which the BIOS update can fix?
Please note that you must pass the BIOS only if you have serious problems, and if you know that the upgrade of the BIOS will solve the problems.
Quick question - a keyboard for a Portege S100 will work in a Portege M100?
Page layout looks like. Although a different color.
I think that you can not use the same keyboard as the Portege S100 supports the year-easy-to-use 84 keys (US) or 85-keyboard (UK) and the Portege M100 supports the year-easy-to-use 85/86-keyboard.
In addition, the S100 connector supports the keyboard interface 34 CN3230 pins and the M100 supports PJ3230 34pin keyboard connector.
So maybe this could be a problem.
I recommend using the original keyboards published for each laptop model.
Can anyone help?
Had to rebuild my beloved Portege M100, after a hard disk failure.
Everything works well except the video player.
Tried using Windows Media Player and Intervideo Win DVD, but the two close as soon as the video starts.
WMP has said that this is a problem with a codec called ivivideo forming Intervideo and Corel as they are now.
However, their site is less useful and I can't find a way to update.
Try VLC Player.
It s small tool/player which can be downloaded for free.
It plays most files smoothly.
In addition, you could install some packages of codec as K-Lite codec pack
I recently acquired a Portege M100 1.2 ghz model no PPM1DE-0000Y-EN. The hard drive had been cleaned, so I installed Windows XP with Service Pack 3. I don't have a utility Toshiba and driver CD.
For the moment, my main problem is that there is no sound and I get messages of "no audio output device. I can watch a DVD but once again his silence as the internal speakers do not work. I am a novice, so if you have any tips please try to not do not technical but in simple terms that I can understand. There are probably a number of questions that I haven't discovered yet IE Power Saver, etc. without wire.
I think you're missing the SOUNDMAX program to render sounds. At least that's what I had with my M200, but apparently M100 and M200 are quite similar. Installed SOUNDMAX SE will solve the problem. The easiest way is probably to get a sort of utility CD.
And it's probably the only one too. Even if make you it work without, you always end up without the other Toshiba Utilities (which can be quite crucial, as power saving, ability to use the buttons and the FN keys, possibility to use the touchpad, etc..).
I received a Portege M100, this week, installed Debian GNU/Linux (Sid) on it and almost everything was fine.
Then I upgraded to the latest BIOS/FIRMWARE (from V1.10 to V1.50) and now my Pentium M 1200 MHz running at half speed.
I can not load also cpufreq, which controls the speed of the cpu.
I see this problem is already known, then:
It will come a new BIOS/FIRMWARE fix for this?
What do you mean by "I saw that this problem is already knowna? ¦ »
Where do you find the description for a same problem?
Usually the BIOS update should not have any influence 'wrong' on the speed of the CPU!
Have you checked the BIOS option called "dynamic CPU frequency mode".
This option is also in the Toshiba HWSetup. You can also switch between 'high' and 'always low '.
I have a Portege M100 that I found very slow until I discovered it was running half speed (IE 600 mhz). I tried everything in the Bios and in Toshiba utility, but nothing to do: always clocked at 600 Mhz.
Is there something I missed? y at - it 'special' something to do to allow him to run at full speed?
I thank the of in advance to anyone who helps!
As already suggested that the firmware must be updated! This portable strange behavior happens especially if the technician forgot to update this laptop runs only at 600 MHz.
Similar questions have been described a lot of time here in the forum.
I always recommend the use of the forum advanced search before posting on similar problems!
Forgive me in advance if this sounds a bit sketchy but my husband's is the only useful with these things, but his time is limited with work, I thought I'd try and help in advance for when he comes home.
I bought a M100 to take with us on our vacation, especially to just watch DVDs for children and some web browsing so n t need something fancy or again the guy we got it installed Ubuntu Linux 9.10.
The main problem we are having is
1. we can t connect to the internet, the wireless on the top light is still orange (I presume it must be green once everything is well and is connected), even if my husband did the usual things that connected our 3 other laptops for the wireless. It downloaded the user manual and it has to activate the wireless press SHIFT + F8, but this doesn t seem to do anything.
2. we can play t DVD, the guy we got if says he burned a CD from it, but when we asked to watch DVDs, he said he didn t try know everything, when you insert the DVD, it says you need to download a codex, which her husband is very well done if it was able to connect to the internet.
I hope all that makes sense please advice on what we could do
Thank you very much
Portege M100 is old enough laptop model, and certainly not supported for Linux operating system that's why if you want to use all the functions described in the user manuals, you need to use supported WXP.
What you need to do is to install the operating system using upgraders original CD.
Do you have the with your laptop?
If you don't install WXP using the original disk of Microsoft WXP facilities. All the necessary drivers, tools and utilities that you can download at Toshiba page under http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com/innovation/download_drivers_bios.jsp for assistance
If you need good facilities order list please let us know.
On my Portege M100.
Can I switch my Banias 1.2 Ghz chip to a Dothan 2.0 Ghz chip now that BIOS 1.5 supports Dothan?
I agree with robin. Computers mobile processors are usually not extensible for different reasons. One of the serious reasons is the BIOS compatibility and the second reason is the dissipation of heat.
Faster CPU produces more heat, and this could lead to overheating problems.
To cut this story; upgrading the CPU is not possible
I have a Portege M100.
Since ysterday, the computer does not boot. When I push the power button, I hear the noise of the fan starts working, but nothing else happens. The power light continues to blink in orange.
I removed the battery and tried to turn on the computer with the AC adapter is plugged in, but nothing changes.
Any ideas on what could be the problem? I would appreciate help,
Thanks in advance
could possibly be the RAM, so please check the RAM modules and remove 1 module if you have 2 of them installed.
Otherwise, I check if some another module of RAM is available and install the module of well known work. If this is not sufficient then I strongly recommend you to bring your machine to a service partner chartered for a balance of health/repair of equipment.
Please give some information about your situation...
P.S.: you can try to remove the battery and AC and leave the machine without power for about 24 hours. Maybe it helps?
Hello all :)
Have a Portege M100 for general use with WXP Pro installed.
Recently decided to upgrade to a DVD - rom DVD burner, then bought a Sony DW-Q250A burner.
Installed and it worked, but I continue having problems when the computer wakes from sleep, I get the message "ERROR #1 IDE", while the system reboots without additional probs in windows
The problem is, once this happens, the DVD player then disappears from the window 'my computer' and is not visible in the "Device Manager", until I remove the disc, back up and then analyze for pop. "p in Device Manager devices, it reappears as nothing has happened."
I thought it might have been a conflict with the IDE bus (ie the two - disk HARD & DVD - disks configured as master) so I put a rider on the HARD disk to make the slave drive (which looks like to mean a change of firmware on the DVD drive for this) but it just created more probs... Then I got a message "ERROR of IDE #0" extra when I did and the machine would not boot from the HARD drive.
Any thoughts would be welcome? :|
"first of all I would like to explain the IDE #0 error: it s quite understandable given that the HARD drive is the * FIRST * player of all and must stand the * FIRST" by car, which means that you jumper shouldn´t to a slave drive. It must be a master, otherwise, as in your case, the boot of won´t machine.
So you have 2 IDE channels (primary and secondary IDE channel), and each channel has a master and a slave. Apart from the HARD drive that is located on the main channel, your DVD player is naturally on the secondary channel configured as the master drive.
Here´s a bit 'image': D to explain it:
-> Primary channel-> Master = HARD drive
-> Slave = nothing
-> Secondary channel-> Master = DVD
-> Slave = nothing
Regarding your problem:
I have no definitive solution for you, but I can give you some advice. First download the latest BIOS for your machine and upgrade to the latest version. Then download the latest drivers and install them. After that, look for an update of the firmware of your player of DVD and last but no less check the database of microsoft for known issues as any of the similar issues are known for me with drives toshiba toshiba machines.
Would be worthy to try
See you soon
