Tecra 8000/windows98se register
I have a tecra 8000 which has a default intermittent starting
When his absentees for awhile. Next time you start it has errors on the windows registry and stop to repair the registry, once it starts successfully, it is ok, including reboots, unless you leave for a few hours or overnight. Someone has an idea of what could be the cause
It is not easy to say but is obviously an entry in the registry is damaged and may not be readable or understandable to the OS. After that it must be written again. On this path, it is not possible to give you an answer why this happens. It is possible that some application that runs on your unit to this entry.
Sorry but I can't give you more information about this
I searched this forum a solution update the BIOS without a floppy drive. The only one i found was this thread [http://forums.computers.toshiba-europe.com/forums/thread.jspa?threadID=66966&tstart=0], but there is no file .iso for the tecra 8000 series.
is there a solution to get the new bios installed on my tecra 8000 without any floppy drive?
I checked Toshiba BIOS download page on http://www.toshiba.eu/innovation/download_bios.jsp and TRAD BIOS version is proposed. This old Tecra is maybe 10 years and now, Toshiba has offered traditional update the BIOS only.
Win versions are later available with latest Tecra 9000/9100.
Maybe stupid question now, but why do you need the BIOS update?
The CD-ROM drive in my Tecra 8000 has a defect. It attempts to load a CD-ROM, LED is flashing, it stops, and then the drive LED is lit.
So I guess the drive is down.
What kind of new CD-ROM is suitable for this laptop? Toshiba only original ones?
Wow, the Tecra 8000 series is really old. Do you use yet this laptop?
It feels like the notebook would come from the stone age ;)
However, I think that the CD/DVD drive supports * interface IDE but not all readers would be compatible due to master/slave/cable select settings
It seems that the reader of DVD-ROM + Toshiba - SD-C2002 + would be compatible.
Not sure if you'll be able to get this disc because of the age of the unit, but probably the authorized Toshiba maintainer in your country could provide some readers compatible optical disc
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.
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
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.
does anyone know what RAM I need for my Tecra 8000
I need the number of PA
The Tecra 8000 is an oldie and it therefore RAM modules that are no longer used in most models of laptops.
As far as I know, you need the module SODIMM 144 pin PC100.
128 MB part number is PA3005U
I don't get my Belkin network card Wireless PCMCIA connected to my Tecra 8000.
That's all new win 2000, including all updates and I don't know that the pcmcia slot is working very well.
The problem during the installation of this card is that the tecra does not see the network card.
Does anyone have an idea how to solve this problem. Network adapter is Belkin F5d7010 54 Mb.
Try to change some settings in the BIOS.
In the configuration box, you can set the configuration of device option to all devices.
In addition, in the area PC card, you can try changing the compatible option CCIP or CardBus / 16-bit.
Play with these settings and check if a this will allow the card.
PS: Have you installed all the drivers that should be shipped with this card?
Is it possible to get the sound to work on a Tecra 8000 using windows 2000 pro? I just upgraded from win 98 and the audio driver install the Yamaha opl3-sax, but there is no sound. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling different drivers, but none seems not to work.
I also recommend to check the Device Manager. If there is no yellow exclamation next to the sound card, so I would say that the audio driver has succeeded not installed and there must be something wrong with the audio settings.
Have you checked the sound and audio devices in the control panel? You should check all the audio controller if they are defined at the top level.
In addition, I would recommend controls the controller of volume on the side of the laptop. People sometimes forget to define. ;)
I'm updating of the bios in my tecra 8000 successful.
"Finished WRITING successful ROM utility. LEADER BIOS: Tecra8000 v 9,30 "
I can't turn on my laptop (press POWER), but the display is black and tecra does not not :(((
When I find the old version of the Bios
I have a PII 266 Mhz
Help me :(

Have you tried to get into the BIOS?
Check it out.
But usually after the update laptop BIOS should properly work and boots.
Have you followed the instructions on the BIOS update on the page of Toshiba?
Maybe you did something wrong and the motherboard is damaged.
I hope someone can help,
I have an old tecra 8000 P11 and the HARD drive failed, I tried re starting from the cd but says disc hard is not recognized or does not. any ideas?
Can someone point me in the direction of a compatible HARD drive replacement or original.
This is an older unit and it is not easy to give you accurate information but I found one that can be useful for you. Obviously, Tecra 8000 comes with different HARD drive capacities and the largest is 14FR. I don? t know which one you have now, but you should not use the HARD drive with too much capacity because it won't be recognized without doubt. I recommend you check eBay because there you can buy an and it won't cost much.
I have an aging Tecra 8000 running XP Pro. It came with the standard DVD player (SD - C2102) I can not read the DVD. After a brief look at the electronic manual, it seems there is a MPEG2 decoder in there somewhere for DVD playback and it came originally with a program of DVD player who took advantage of this.
This DVD player is not on the system and just WMP plays the audio and RealPlayer not playing the ball at all.
I don't know if DVD software has been bundled with this Tecra8000, but this is not very serious.
In the internet, you will find many freeware DVD player.
The new laptops Toshiba come with a preinstalled WinDVD program.
But you can also use other programs such as PowerDVD.
Control the internet.
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.
When I update me my Tecra 8000 NT 4.0 to Windows 2000, my Setup stopped and I got the message that I had to remove the Configuration Interface for system Toshiba driver. What is going on?

I am trying to install Linux on a Toshiba Tecra 8000. The problem is with a chipset Realtek ethernet PCMCIA card (module: 8139too), which is recognized, but the network is unusable. I always get an error of SIOCSFFLAGS and assigned interruption is 0, which means that it has failed. I have read many times that I have to disable plug-and-play, but there is no choice when I start with a floppy and run the TSETUP. EXE. Y at - it an alternative to this? Do you have any other clues?
Perhaps the following site will help you solve the problem.
Here are 2 official linux Toshiba sites and there are also some tips.
PS: You can also enter the BIOS if you press the ESC key immediately after lighting NB!
Since yesterday, I have my NB again at home and so far, I'm happy with it!
It has a processor M760, with 2 GHz, 100 GB HDD, FSB 533 and such - but it is slower than my old Tecra 8000 with PII and 366 MHz with only 8 GB of HARD drive.
Y at - it a tip or something I should fix, or is it quite normal when there is now software for nearly 10 GB (nothing special, just the software more pre-installed desktop, antivirus and internet, no games) on this subject?
Would be happy to help!
Your new Tecra running the same OS as your old?
I would be interested to know if slow is during the initial loading of the operating system or if it appears when you actually use the system.
