Tecra 8100 seeing all installed memory

I'm working on a Tecra 8100 laptop for a friend. Machine does not seem to recognize the memory installed in location B at all. Is there something in the BIOS to force her to perform a new analysis or I'm just looking at a broken slot? Everything seems OK visually and clips seem sound.


I agree with Feliks;
Module of RAM or housing could be faulty.
You should try the RAM module in A slot in order to check the functionality.
If the same RAM would work in the slot, but not in the B slot then I guess the slot B is damage.

  • Inspiron 2650 'View System Info' not see newly installed memory

    You wanted to spend this memory to laptop to hand to his grandchildren.  Original Config: 128 M RAM 128 M plus additional system in the "support extensible user."    After checking with Dell, I ordered a key of 256 M to replace the 128 in the decision-making of the user.

    'View system information' in 'My computer' has not seen the new memory.  Reference called Dell.  They said they had sent me the wrong memory.  I now have the correct memory for shipping.  Meanwhile, I reinstalled the old stick of 128 M.  'View system information' reports STILL 128M.

    My question: do you think that the system actually USES the 256 origin but only REPORTING 128.  Or what the hell is happening?  Is there another place (in addition to seeing the news system) to see what resources are actually on board and used?

  • You cannot change the color display on Tecra 8100

    I have a 8100 TECRA with Windows 2000 Professional installed. I tried to install "Streets and Trips" and it won't work without colorful. I can't change the view setting because it doesn't have this option (high resolution). Is there a driver available to fix this problem?

  • Tecra 8100: memory slot problems

    I have a model tecra 8100 not: PT810L 12 c 42.

    I had problem with slot B mem, so collapsed to use it. Then I upgraded my RAM and inserted a 128 Mb TOSHIBA THLY6416G1FG-80 RAM PC100-222-620 slot A and used for a month. Then he suddenly went dead one day and did not boot at all.

    I took it to the point of service, they found somehow it work by sticking a piece of paper btw Aries and the cover. I used another week with ram cover duck taped it. Same story, then dead in the middle of winXP, switched off and no boot again. It took to the same service point, they tried some other RAM chipsets that it refused to start.

    The interesting thing is; When they inserted a faulty RAM in slot A and non-use slot B we get the message "memory incompatible chipset" on the screen. With the RAM mentioned above in the slot B (problem as always) and the A we get nothing, just a blank screen, DVD slot starts green lit, but nothing.


    What is the RAM causing problems? What must a chipset that is exactly compatible with the model no pls?
    Is it the two locations of memory A or B, their change could solve the problem?

    This is the machine he itself, must it be thrown away?



    I n know where you tried to upgrade the memory but as Lisa suggested this was not a serious technician. I changed and upgraded memory on multiple PCs, and you must use 100% compatible modules! You shouldn't t install the modules with a brute force or use strange things as a communication between the housing and the memory module.
    Possible slots are damage due to use this procedure. But I hope you're a lucky man and everything will work correctly.

    If you n t know which modules are right and taken in charge so you should contact the service partner authorized Toshiba for the right and the upgrade modules.

    Good luck

  • Install W2K on Tecra 8100

    Hi all

    I am trying to install W2K on a Tecra 8100, but I think I'm doing something wrong, because it keeps failing.

    If I just insert the CD it starts to start a load several files at a time when the Setup starts Windows 2000 (present at the bottom of the screen) and the installation crashes with a blue screen and the c0000221 error material unknown error \systemRoot\System32\ntdll.dll
    I read that, during installation, you will need to press F5 (in the screen where you can load a SCSI or raid driver) and then choose Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI) PC, but after doing this I get the same error.
    I have no additional material attached, it's original configuration.

    Any thoughts on how to solve this problem and get W2K on my laptop?


    I think that this question has nothing to do with the Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI) or similar.

    I read about the error systemRoot\System32\ntdll.dll message, and there is no particular reason for this error.
    Sometimes some service packs missing cause this problem and sometimes hardware malfunction (RAM or HARD drive) could be responsible for a BSOD.

  • Tecra 8100 - slot memory B do not work


    I recently bought a Tecra 8100 and I decided to upgrade the ram from 128 to 512.
    I did not buy good modules, but in any case, when I opened the laptop, I discovered that I had 2 modules of 128 MB...
    I did some tests:
    -1 module in the slot, he was allowed (128 detected)
    -1 module on the slot B, nothing happened, the laptop won't start...
    -switch modules, always 128 detected
    That's why I think that my slot B is dead...
    Someone has any idea what I can do?
    Maybe a bios update will do... I have yet to try this...
    Furthermore, what is the combination of keys to access the bios?


    There is not much to do if the slot B is defective. If you don? t want to repair you can use the module in slot A memory of 256 MB. The number of compatible 256 MB module is PA3051U-1NME.

    BIOS settings, which you can open by using the ESC key.

  • Tecra 8100 memory module questions

    Does anyone know if the ram PC133 144 pin for the Tecra 8200 can be used in the Tecra 8100? I think that the Tecra 8100 usually takes PC100 144 pin but I'm having a hard time getting suppliers to tell me about the PC133 so (probably because it is half the price).


    The Tecra 8100 uses these memory modules:
    PC100 256 MB (PA3051U-1NME)
    PC100 128 MB (PA3005U)
    PC100 64 MB (PA3004U)

  • Tecra A6 - how to install 4 GB of memory?


    I have a Tecra A6. I can't install memory 667 mhz? How can I install 4 GB when there is only a single slot on the bottom?

    Thank you


    Hmm memory on Tecra A6 can scale up to 4 GB, but only a slot is user scalable.
    This means that the second location of memory is hidden somewhere in the unit. I presume that it s under the keyboard.

    But from my understanding, you will lose the warranty if you remove the keyboard from the laptop.
    Therefore, it would be advisable to contact a service partner allowed in your country for these updates.

    PS: you can use 667 Mhz modules because the laptop supports a FSB 667 Mhz also.

    Best regards

  • If I had to format a hard drive, it will delete everythink including windows xp disk if yes I would be able to see all thinking when I turn on my computer, as if that were to happen I could use windows install for install windows xp

    If I had to format a hard drive, it will delete everythink including windows xp disk if yes I would be able to see all thinking when I turn on my computer, as if that were to happen I could use windows install for install windows xp

    Welcome to the responses of the Forums.  The short answer to your questions are Yes and no and no.

    Depends on how you format the drive, it will delete everything on the drive.  Now, it may still be recoverable with a software specialist or moving to a data recovery company.

    If you formatted your hard drive you would not be able to start to do anything, because there would be nothing on the startup disk.  With the Windows XP CD or with the recovery media provided by the manufacturer of the PC is the only way to reinstall Windows.

  • Tecra 8100 - no sound except in mic!

    I have a Tecra 8100 Windows XP.

    I can't get sound on the speakers or the headphones emitted by the computer, such as beeps, CD, etc. But if I have to reactivate the microphone, I can hear through the headset, ensure that the microphone picks up (there are a few comments without microphones, proving that the speakers work physically). All volume controls are the maximum and reactivated. All devices are enabled and correctly selected in sound control panels.

    Any help would be welcome! Is the sound card, or am I missing a driver? Could not find anything else on the web with similar symptoms. Thanks in advance.

    A good questions and I never heard of this topic which s...

    I think the fist, you should start to update the audio driver of your laptop. Therefore, you can see the Toshiba site for an update:
    http://EU.computers.Toshiba-Europe.com-online decision-making supported Downloads & => Download drivers

    Before installing the latest version, you must remove the old version first and reboot the laptop.

    Maybe a reinstall of Windows with the Toshiba recovery disc could also be useful and in the worst case, it s only a hardware malfunction and it must swap the motherboard. :(

  • Tecra 8100 does not start.

    Hello. I have this Tecra 8100 I think sell for parts, because I am crazy about her. But before that, I ask you here as a last.

    It seems the section "power" of the laptop works very well: if I plug the power, the 'dc in' and 'battery' LED will light, and the "battery" led even go from orange to green when the battery is charged.

    If I press the button "power on", "power" lights up. The hard disk starts to spin. The fan does nothing, and no "beep" is heard at all. In addition, the screen does not display anything. External VGA output or output TV shows nothing, too. I repeat, that no. a BEEP is heard, until...

    I close the lid. A long beep is heard when I close the lid, but no trace of the image on the screen.

    I have changed or upgraded nothing notebook: memory, CPU, etc.

    I opened and took every piece of it: internal battery, motherboard, sound card, leds and buttons edge... and I tried to connect our case so t may be a short circuit with no luck at all.

    What is a BIOS problem?

    The BIOS can be reflashed in this State, as the AWARD BIOS?

    Are there keys or buttons I could press to enter a kind of mode to diagnose or service?

    Thank you.


    The Tecra 8100 doesn t supports no internal memory. Two memory slots are available, and it depends on the unit memory has been installed.
    Always is it that you can improve it to max 512 MB (2 x 256 MB)

    Now to you deliver; It sounds like a hardware problem, but no one could be able to provide a diagnosis exactly what we can do is speculate on the fault.
    I think that it s a motherboard problem

    See you soon

  • Tecra 8100 hangs after startup

    My Tecra 8100 has the same problem as described some time ago: the memory locations of MB were broken and doesn't have a connection properly. Even when I put paper or anything else between the cover and the memory module, it did not work and often my laptop has not yet started.

    I bought the new MB and now the laptop still start (I can see BIOS etc.) BUT crashes after Windows XP logo with notice: windows cannot start because the pci.sys file is damaged... The names of 'corrupt' are different, not only from pci.sys.

    When I portable computer boot from CD Win (to save the system) it blocks (crashes after 2-3 minutes). I tried to boot from Ultimate Boot Cd to detect the problem, but I can't do anything - always crashes after a short period of time - never start to run tests or Tools CD.

    I think that there is a problem of memory - I have 2 modules Kingston KTT-SO100/256, I tried to place them in different locations, together and alone, but nothing changes.
    These modules have worked with my old MB all the time.

    Any ideas?

    I read on other forums that this error can appear if the modules of memory are corrupt or not compatible or the memory on the motherboard slot is faulty.

    Well, you have replaced the Board but do you use 100% identical to that of first?
    Perhaps modules of memory are not compatible with the new Board of Directors.
