Tecra 8100 CPU 450 Mhz speed?
Install XP Professional sp2 clean
Energy saver: full power, the speed of the processor: full
BIOS set 2.50 in place at full power
Speed measured with: EVEREST Home Edition and Intel(r) processor frequency ID Utility version 7.2
How to install XP on this model to run at full speed?
I know in regards to this unit was not tested and delivered with Win XP.
In this case I put t find all the Xp drivers for this device.
But if you have installed XP on you unit, you should check the settings of the CPU in the BIOS. It should be possible to put the CPU for maximum performance.
I have an old Tecra 8100. I've updated the 700 to 900 Mhz CPU. It works but the CPU is always set to 100 x 7 = 700 Mhz. I think this would work if I find a tool that can update the record DMI for the CPU. DMICFG can read the values but could not write them.
Could someone tell my worms a solution?
I think there is a Toshiba tool for this.
AFAIK more CPU, 800 MHz which was delivered with the Tecra 8100. I think it's limit.
I found other topics about changing the CPU on the Tecra 8100.
Maybe this help you: entered the BIOS using "Esc" + F1 during POST. Past processor speed of 'Low' to 'High' (used for recording of the battery).
I just bought a Tecra 8100 opportunity and told me the cpu speed to 800 MHz. This excerpt with the technical spec that I downloaded form the Support from Toshiba site.
However, there is a program called Belarc advisor installed that the cpu is a P3 252 MHz. Windows XP system also P111 252 Mhz properties.
Can someone advise n the correct speed?
Right-click on my computer, go to properties. At the bottom of the first page must list the CPU speed and ram installed. Everything that is written there what is installed in the computer at that time here.
Well, some may remember my previous post about the fan activation in my Tecra 8100.
This laptop came to me as a gift by a customer, because the screen didn't work. After some research, the problem was the internal cold cathode that was broken. Once replaced: Yes! a free book for me! It was a Pentium III 650 Mobile, with 64 MB of RAM and a 12 GB hard drive. I replaced all the components (which are now on sale, btw), and now has a Pentium III 850 Mobile, 512 MB of RAM and a 40 GB hard drive. Someone gave me a card PCMCIA of WiFi 11 Mbit/s, and now how it works with Windows XP Professional and updated Toshiba Utilities and drivers downloaded from Toshiba USA.
What's the buzz? SpeedFan, Motherboard Monitor and other monitoring utilities reported temperatures up 72a? Aºc in the processor. I opened the computer laptop and put thermal paste instead of the sticker that has the heat sink. Temperature guard high and utilities Toshiba even with parameters ' cooling high performance "does not have the fan to cool the cpu...
I hangs at all, but the business cards and pcmcia laptop have too hot even with the system works with any of the applications running. Lowering of the CPU clock or the ratio helps not at all.
I think putting a fan somewhere extra to force air circulation and that cool the cpu, unless...
... Toshiba could develop a utility that allows you to directly control the fan speed. I don't know if the thermal management is hardware or software-driven. If it is a software-driven, it should be easy to create a utility that directly access the fan and temperature records. It would be MUCH better than simply let the computer decide when and how long to activate the fan.
I'm sure that Toshiba engineers are busy with more important things which will not create the utility for us, so...
.. What to check or do to cool the CPU at more appropriate values?
Thank you all!
As in you previous announcement describes the Toshiba power saver controls the CPU and fan usage.
This software works very well, and if you use the laptop as prescribed, you should not get all the problems and overheating problems.
The problem is that you have changed all the devices and parts on you laptop. The new parts are effective, but produce more heat.
On the laptop you can cool the CPU with a small fan, and if she goes out, it is necessary to decrease the performance of the processor.
It is a simple fact. All these functions can be set with energy saver.
In addition, it is very important that your cooling module is clear and free from dust and debris obstruct the work of fan.
PS: Useful link about changing CPU:
1. I have a 500 MHz processor on my 8100. I would like to upgrade to maximum capacity. I think it's 800 MHz since it is the highest, the series went to.
But if it's 800 MHz, any Mobile PIII on this frequency do? Or should I check for special settings of the processor?
2. I don't have a floppy, or ways to get drive one. And I'm not going to ebay one just for an update of the BIOS. Any ideas? A bootable CD with the files will do?
3. What is the location of the DVD-ROM and what alternative models can I use? The 8200 went up to 8 x DVD - RW. Could I go further?
Thank you. I hope that my post is OK like this instead of three different positions.
1 take a look at the other Tecra 8100 models to determine which processors are compatible.
2. I don't think that would work a bootable CD, you must follow a special procedure to update the BIOS and requires a floppy drive. If there is a version of Windows, you must use that instead.
3 upgrade the DVD player can be difficult because you must use the correct master/slave settings, and it must have the same design of the façade of the original.
Personally, I'm selling the laptop and buy a second hand faster one. It can work out to be cheaper.
I had the problem after tonight and want to post how it solved, so others can find it.
I changed in the info bar of management power for the profile with the fastest processor because I wanted to start an analysis of the data, what I do every week and take appr. 50 minutes. The fan has not started and the process was not completed at the end of 70 minutes, so I checked for the speed of the CPU with the Windows key + Pause-key, it shoewd 591 MHz (Sisoft Sandra Lite showed 599 MHz). Back to zero didn't helped, also uninstall and reinstall.
The problem suddenly disappeared when I open the third tab allow you to define the actions on the key ON / OFF support and display relatives. I only changed from hibernate on near display anything and the fan has started and the CPU showed 1.60 GHz.
The first time I wanted to hear the fan.
Thanks for sharing this with us.
I think this could be useful for other users!
I use a Tecra 8100, PIII 600 MHz, 256 MB with Windows 2000. It seems to be too slow. So I used CrystalCPUID for more information about the system. It shows a cuurent Speed 301 MHz CPU and a 51 MHz instead of 100 MHz (FSB) system clock. How can I set the system up to 100 MHz (FSB) clock?
I think that the current settings in the BIOS for CPU LOW speed and optimized battery. Check this.
Is it possible to overclock toshiba tecra 8100 with 600 MHZ processor, please? If so haw can do?
There is no option in the BIOS to overclock the system, it is not a good idea in a laptop because the cooling system is designed to cool the CPU at stock speed. Overclocking can cause the system to overheat and fail.
I can't play a normal DVD on my Tecra 8100 (P3 600 MHz, 256 MB RAM, Windows 2000 with SP4)
without convulsions. Already have try to copy the image of the DVD on the HARD drive and play directly from the
HDD - same result. Therefore, it is NOT a problem with the DVD drive, may be a problem
with the S3 S3 Savage/MX VGA-Cardinal display driver integrated V installed 126.96.36.19902.
Tested with PowerDVD 6 and VLC media player. Any special DVD playback software for the
8100 available? Please help, try several hours to solve this problem, already
talk with toshiba customer service!
Well, the Tecra 8100 is not a high-performance notebook and maybe it is not generally possible to watch DVDs jerking-free s.
But I think you should check several parameters before we abandon ;)
In order to check if DMA and not PIO mode is available and updated on the IDE controllers.
Check if you have installed the latest version of DirectX.
You said that you are using the latest version of the graphics driver. Well perhaps you will check this site:
Also check if the installation of some codex will help you:
The Nimo Codec Pack is a nice collection
I think I bought the toshiba tecra 8100 on summer (when I had the money), but I have question. What is this laptop processor?
I read it as 600 mhz, 700 mhz, 800 mhz and 850 mhz, but what really are? Or it's possible overclock via the bios etc?
I Don t understand the question is what a laptop processor. It s the thing that makes your 'computer' computer or think. No matter what.
The speed is set in Mhz, so it depends on the model how Mhz, the processor of your machine has.
The exact clock speed is written on the label on the bottom of your machine. You can also try CPU - Z to determine the exact speed of your processor.
And NO, not possible to overclock the CPU of machines it s.
advice please, I installed a p3 900 processor in my tecra 8100 and he sees it only as a 700. Since the Bios was outdated, I downloaded the latest bios which had no effect on its speed. However, as the update of the bios fan never happens that maybe a coincidence?
Can any body advise me the temp for the processor and the motherboard. My diagnostic software shows 55(c) of the motherboard and 43 for cpu, no fan activity at all. The original processor speed was 600 and I expect the 900 full because I think this is a 100 mhz bus.
Any help or comment gladly received thanks.
I'm not an expert, but maybe don windows to see the t the correct CPU speed. I recommend you to use a tool (clock THG) which indicates the speed of the processor.
I updated the bios and the performance max cooling and the dynamics processor and then put in a new HD. I then installed Win XP.
During the installation of the cooling fan was still running and completed the installation of the OS. Now, my laptop crashing all the time. The hanging of the changes of time (between 5 and 60 minutes).
I noticed that the fan rarely during 5 s maximum, and the computer gets very hot. The fan is supposed to turn all the time by running and changing speeds according to temp or is it normal that it be turned off. Are there steps that I missed during the installation or special drivers to install.
Tecra 8100 is a little older. Am I wrong? I checked the page of the Toshiba driver and there is not a lot of XP drivers for this Tecra series. Most of the drivers are for OS W2k Win98and.
I recommend you to check the cooling fans. Maybe dust and debris inside prevents air flow correctly and so the laptop can not be cooled very well.
It s a fact that stuck fans are mainly responsible for overheating problems
A few months ago, I had a problem with my Tecra 8100 - does not start, everything seems OK but nothing on the screen (no post). I bought another motherboard and replace the old 1 MB, but the problem remains the same: everything seems normal, led lights turn just as it should, cooler works well but nothing on the screen.
I tried to connect the external display, but there is nothing on it, too. I have two memory modules and I tried all combinations with them (they are OK).
Is it possible that the problem is something with CPU - I don't know what else could be the problem?
Please, can someone give me help!
I assume you mean on this subject:
Well, as mentioned in the first thread, it's not easy to say what could be wrong.
Of course, it is possible that the CPU malfunctions and, therefore, you cannot use your laptop's!
But these are only suggestions, and no one will be able to provide an exact error diagnostic.
Anyone know if one of the hard disk for Toshiba laptop is compatible with the Tecra 8100 pentium 3 (500 mhz)? I'm looking for the reader more fast/capacity for the execution of programs like Cubase 5.1, Cubase SX 1, 2 music sequencing, Sibelius etc.
I found information that this device has been delivered with 6 GB; 8 GB; 12 GB; 15 GB; 18 GB; 20GB hard drives. In my opinion, it should be possible to use a 40 GB HARD drive. But I don't know if the 80 or a 100 GB HARD drive works Mr. I think it might be a problem of recognition of the BIOS.
If you want to learn more about compatible HARD drive sizes, you should ask the ASP or the HARD drive manufacturers because they hold more information and sometimes they test units with different drives.
Does anyone know if it is possible to use a Pentium 4 in a Tecra 8100? Are there any that will fit the connector and the motherboard will be able to cope?
Don t think you will be able to update the machine with a Pentium 4 CPU.
The computer is equipped with an Intel? Mobile Pentium? III processor and it has three speeds of operation as follows:
It seems that this is a limit.
