Tecra 8000 and broadband connection

Hi all

I recently asked to watch Tecra 8000 a friends (PII 233) and give it a bit of an update... Don't know why the most I've ever done, is to add a few small components in my PC at home!

My question is - is this possible for a connection broadband to be put in place - I looked all over the laptop, but don't find nothing which would suggest it is possible.
(Also what other improvements should be can) watching us.

Sorry for the noobness, but any help is greatly appreciated.

Thank you


Wow this is really an oldie
Broadband do you mean the LAN port?

As far as I know that the Tecra 8000 was not equipped with LAN port.
It s really amazing but it is a fact

However, if you want to use LAN then I advise you to buy a PCMCIA (Cardbus 32-bit) LAN card that would be allows to connect the Tecra 8000 to LAN.

See you soon

  • Tecra 8000 - how to connect the HARD drive to another laptop?

    Hello, what kind of camera do I need to connect an old hard drive Tecra 8000 to a laptop from another production?

    I want to just transfer some data, but the connector on the Tecra ac no longer works.


    You can use a drive enclosure external DRIVE with USB port for this.
    The external HARD disk enclosure should be for 2.5 s HDD with IDE interface. All that s.

    Contact your local computer dealer. I'm sure they will have these cases.

    I have a Tecra 8000 PII 400.
    The PCI card (which is actually a 'C-Cube Microsystems Cinemaster C 3.0 DVD Decoder (rev 02)') works fine with W2k.
    On linux, I don't have the drivers to make it work (but I use xine player for watching movies, which is fine with the 400 MHz processor).

  • Tecra 8000 does not recognizing PCMCIA

    Ive been using my XP loaded Tecra 8000 and connected to the internet via a wireless system using the USB port. It continues to lose signal, Ive just bought an Edimax Cardbus Fast Ethernet PC Card. It fits in the PCMCIA slot and gives me a RJ45 connection directly to the router. The problem is that I mounted the card in the Bay, but it was not recognized by XP. Should I change the bios for the PC to recognize this new material?
    Thank you very much


    I guess you need the driver.
    Have you installed all the drivers and got all the drivers with this card?

    So note to check this site for card manufacturers;

    You will find all drivers

  • Tecra 8000: Display driver

    Hi all, I hope someone can help with my problem. I have a Tecra 8000 and just reformat and installed Windows 98 Second edition, the problem is that I have a small window in the middle of the screen with a black border completely round. I don't have the original disks that came with it and said that I need to install the display driver, as I can change the resolution, is does anyone know where I can download this driver from, or can someone provide me with it. I tried the download from toshiba site, but its not available.
    I also tried to change the resolution, but because there is only the installed base driver I can't change it. If anyone can help.
    Thank you

    Hello Mick

    The problem is that this device is not supported for W98SE and that is a reason why you can not find a driver on the Toshiba site. The graphics card in your unit is NeoMagic NM2200 (MagicMedia 256av).

    Please check on the net if you can find a driver on the site of producer of graphics card. There is no guarantee that it will work, but I'm sure that there should be no problem. Please also check the BIOS settings if there is an option called display stretching or something like that. If so he set to active.

  • Tecra 8000: W2K - how to operate the 2 screens at the same time

    I have a tecra 8000 with win 2000 pro is installed.

    Everything works fine with one exception...
    Press the [fn] [f5] keys to use the device outside.

    Is there a way I can get it to run 2 screens at the same time (either cloned or, preferably tv being a secondary monitor)?

    If anyone can help I would be eternally grateful

    Thank you

    I'm not familiar with the Tecra 8000 and W2K operating system. If there I sno good driver on Toshiba download page (I assume W2K is not supported for this model of laptop), please try to find the driver somewhere on the net. I found some info your unit has NeoMagic NM2200 (MagicMedia 256av) video card.

    To use an external monitor as a second monitor, or extended display just try to use the Windows settings in display properties.

  • Tecra 8000: Lack of OS, how to install

    I have this old Tecra 8000, and he had Win ME above. I used a software called drive to kill, and after reboot I get "missing OS".

    I have a bootable CD with a (legal) copy of XP Pro top. But nothing happens when I insert the CD, it runs for a while, but "lack of OS" message remains. I tried to restart with the CD inserted, but nothing other than the message.

    It is and old comp but I still feel like it's running, there is no mechanical failure, then... any help much appreciated.

    Hi Yavis,

    Check in your BIOS that the boot order specifies the CD first, followed by the hard drive. Otherwise, press the F12 key during the boot process, and this should give you the boot device selection menu where you can specify your CD-ROM as boot device.

    Kind regards

  • Tecra 8000 - factory restore

    I'm having a lot of problems with my tecra 8000 and I want to restore it back to factory settings. No idea how I can do that I don't have a boot disk.

    If you don t have delivered the recovery CD, you must use the full version of Microsoft CD and install the operating system. After installing all the necessary drivers, tools and utilities that you can find on Toshiba download page.

  • Tecra 8000: Desk Station V + chipset/HDD on Debian Linux?


    I have a Toshiba Tecra 8000 and a desk Station V, currently under Debian Linux.
    The HARD drive I have in my docking station is functional, but very slow (and I know that's not the drive itself, it works very well in another computer). I can't seem to activate the DMA ("' HDIO_SET_DMA failed: operation not permitted", is it still possible for hard disks anchored? "), but it works with one internal.

    The HD internal (had) gets pretty decent speeds, but externally (hde) works at a snail's pace:

    Ulmo: / etc # hdparm-t/dev/hda
    / dev/hda:
    Calendar of the disc in the buffer reads: 14 MB to 4.94 seconds = 2.83 MB / sec

    Ulmo: / etc # hdparm t/dev/hde
    / dev/hde:
    Calendar reads disc in the buffer: 2 MB in 3.92 seconds = 522,50 kB / sec

    Any suggestions? A fact, anyone know if the Desk Station V requires any configuration of chipset/IDE controller or support?

    Thanks for any help whatsoever.


    As much as I know the Station V Plus office devoted additional features to Enhanced Port Replicator II as follows:
    a PCI/ISA bus and a bus PCI expansion slots, a Bay 5 inches.
    a selectable Bay and a built-in SCSI-2 (Small Computer System Interface) controller.
    I also found information on the net that the Desk Station V plus supports also only the UDMA2.

    Well, I think that the internal interface for laptop is a bit faster than the DSV.

  • Need help installing a Tecra 8000 wireless

    I just bought the wife an old laptop tecra 8000 and like to run wifi on it, I bought a d-link router and a d-link usb adapter, but he said I would impose a usb high speed and it n, t, raise the router a pcmia card would work better, also can anyone suggest a modem/router and card that works on it, any help is appreciated...


    The Tecra 8000 supports only USB 1.1 standard.
    Are high speed USB 2.0 ports
    Many USB devices are designed only for USB 2.0 and I guess that your USB WLan adapter also supports the 2.0 standard.

    The PCMCIA should work better. There is no standard limitations as on the USB ports.

  • Tecra 8000: No memory available to connect with area map PC

    I have a Tecra 8000 running Win98 SE and use a card PCMCIA 3Com for my Internet connection. I was troubleshooting my computer on another issue and in the process disabled Cardbus PCMCIA Toshiba ToPIC controllers. After you have enabled these again once I am more able to communicate with the PC card and so unable to connect to the Internet.

    Card troubleshooting agent PC States: "Windows is not able to identify or use the inserted PC card device because there is no available memory area to connect with this device. You need to do an area memory available before this device can be used. Check the CONFIGURATION of your computer. A memory manager that is excluding the regions of superior memory between A000 and FFFF in the SYS file '.

    My Cardbus controllers are defined as follows:
    1 memory range - 0c 000000 - 0C000FFF
    2 memory range - 001000 0c - 0C001FFF

    ' Error 666: the modem is not plugged in or is out of service. "Connect a modem to your computer and try again.

    When I run the Diagnostics on the Modem does not respond to the exception of the following:

    "' Open Comm: cannot open port"

    Any help or advice will be appreciated.

    Have you tried to uninstall the Cardbus drivers? Not sure about the location in Win98 (in XP it is in Device Manager), go to "PCMCIA adapters" and uninstall all entries in controller.

    Reboot and Win98 will perform his routine "new hardware found". This is going to re - install drivers and with a bit of luck should solve your problem.

  • Tecra 8000 - connection of the hard disk


    My old Tecra 8000 dropped last night after 4 years loyal service. She simply refuses to start to start most of the time. I think that this is a motherboard problem because sometimes it is starts on a diskette and remains stable for about 10 minutes. I know that the hard drive is fine as I can copy files on disk when booting from the floppy in DOS mode. Is there a way I can connect the HDD on a desktop PC so that I can recover the files which are there?

    Thanks for your help,



    James means the case of HARD drive 2.5 external with a USB port or / and the firewire interface. These cases, you can buy everywhere. Also check ebay.

  • Upgrade RAM and disk on Tecra 8000

    I have a toshiba tecra 8000 p2 266 mhz, 64 MB, 6 GB HD.

    My question is I want to upgrade the ram and hard drive. can someone tell me what is the maximum I can put in my laptop. IM aiming for a 256 RAM and 40 GB HARD drive... I want to upgrade the processor, but I don't think it would be possible. If Yes please let me know what is the maximum.

    Thank you guys


    I found information that your device can handle with max 256 MB and compatible module unit Pentium II are:
    PA2060U 32 MB
    PA2061U 64 MB
    PA2062U 128 MB

    For user who have the Pentium III unit I'll also post this compatible module are:
    PC100 128 MB (PA3005U)
    PC100 64 MB (PA3004U)
    PC100 32 MB (PA3003U)

    HARD drive upgrade is always a little more problematic because of the maximum capacity that will be recognized correctly, but I assume you can use up to 20 GB of HARD disk without problem.
    Sorry, but I didn? t find accurate information about it.
