Tecra M9: Does not start at the local network after the value of BIOS password.

Hi all, I have configured a supervisor BIOS password on a number of Tecra M9s but later found that this does not allow books to be PXE started - and a number of them require now that rebuild.

I tried pressing the cursor keys in the first screen flash "Toshiba" (with the device down icons), but this will not allow to select the boot device - it's as if the keys are not pressed.

I also tried to get into the BIOS to change boot device priorities, but I can't just to get into the BIOS in a limited form - there is no prompt to enter BIOS password.

In brief - how can I work around this? -J' I need to know how to get the BIOS to ask the supervisor password (pressing ESC then F1 at boot only gives me the 'limited' BIOS)... Or, how to get the laptop for a PXE boot with a BIOS supervisor password.

Thanks in advance.



I would recommend pressing the F12 key, immediately after that the laptop has been powered.
This would allow the start on-screen menu.

Then choose the HARD drive as the boot source.
Then you could boot into the operating system and could use the Toshiba HWSetup to clear the supervisor password.

I guess the password is known to you

  • Tecra S3 does not start when the multimedia center of Toshiba is connected

    Whenever I (re) start my Tecra S3 with the powered gigastore on (which is connected to the Media Center which is connected again to my dock via USB), my laptop only shows me the "toshiba" screen and doe not continues the start unless I turned off the gigastore and restart the laptop.

    What can I do?

    The same thing happened on my laptop while my external USB printer is connected to the computer. It has something to do with the BIOS.
    Hmmm, you can try to change the boot order in the BISO. Probably, it helps.

    I was an unlucky boy because the change of the boot order has not improved the situation. I had to unplug the printer or turn off the printer during the start-up procedure.

  • Tecra M2 does not start - the power light AC blinking orange

    Someone at - it a list of codes for the Tecra M2 flash.
    My friend has a laptop that does not start at the top. the AC power LED flashes orange. a long, short, long, short, long, short, long, short.

    I checked the battery and reinstall the RAM.
    Any IDE?


    I agree with go.
    The ASP would be able to tell what means error.

    Usually means short and 1 long: 0
    So the error must be: 1010 1010
    Due to the last significant bit (LSB), to be read by behind:
    So it now means: * 0101 0101 binary *-> it must be converted to hexadecimal-> * 55 Hex *.

    Then, you will get a hex code.
    But unfortunately, I m not very well which could mean this code

    So ask ASP for help!

  • Tecra M2 does not start successfully - zeroes appear all over the screen


    My Tecra M2 does not start. After the toshiba logo, a series of zeros (0) appear all over the screen.

    -suspect it is caused by a virus, I formatted the HD (in another PC), but still the zeros appear
    -I might want to start in the DVD player, it seems to read the disc, but nothing happens, just a cursor flashing at the top left of the screen
    -J' I reset / replaced the RAM, but still no effect.
    -the power button works, lights and shuts the laptop but does not start.
    -CPU fan works
    -LED indicators of work are power, battery, dvd, wireless. Does not have HD LED light on.

    Any suggestions on how to solve this problem is greatly appreciated.
    See you soon!


    I think we can exclude HARD disk failure because you are able to format it in another computer.
    As you suggest the RAM modules has been replaced but the problem persists
    So in my opinion, a motherboard problem would be possible

    But as you know, it of really difficult to say what might be exactly wrong
    I think that the technician should check the laptop then it would be possible to say what part is malfunctioning

    In any case, I think a motherboard might be affected

    L300-21F is aged 18 months, so out of warranty. When you press the power button, you can hear the fan and a "click" but the hard drive does not start and the screen remains blank. The power and the battery on the headlight LEDs, but the switch light does not work. I checked the power supply and it is 19.3V and substituted a good known. Removed the battery, tried with just the power cord and still nothing. Pressing ESC or F2 when you press the button power does not bring to the top of the screen of the bios or any other message. I have concluded there is no power the jury. A friend he had its technology take a look and he concluded Council is probably a friend.

    1. He's probably right?

    3. what else can do before shelling out for a new Board of Directors?
    4. is there a link where I can find how to disassemble the case?

    Any help appreciated


    > 1. He's probably right?

    Yes, it looks like motherboard failure

    > 2. Is this a common problem with an easy solution?

    If it's a motherboard problem, the whole motherboard is replaced. Quite expensive part...

    > 3. What else can do before shelling out for a new Board of Directors?

    I don't think you can do anything with fried mobo

  • My pc says that windows does not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: \WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM.

    My pc says that windows does not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: \WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM. It is said it can be repaired by using the original installation CD, but we do not have. Any ideas please?

    The file is missing or corrupt is one of your files in the system registry.

    By far, the best way to recover from this is to go to another computer and create a free Hirens Boot CD.
    Download Hirens: <> http://www.hirensbootcd.org/download/ > (link at the bottom of the icon of the disk)
    Hirens CD burning <> http://www.hirensbootcd.org/burning/ >

    Once you create the CD, and then start your system of problem with this CD.  In the first window, select "Mini Windows XP" and wait for the system to start.  When it starts, go to the Hirens Boot CD menu and select
    Register-> Registry Restore Wizard.
    then follow the prompts.  This wizard will return a copy of your registry database from backups that are stored with your system restore points.  After the restoration, stop, remove the CD and restart.

    When you start your system, it is recommended to perform a system restore operation to ensure the consistency of your system

    Also, this error is almost always accompanied, if not caused, the corruption of the file system.  Also a good idea to perform a check disk (chkdsk) operation with the option "repair".

    The hard way to get back is covered in the following Microsoft KB article, but if you have installed a large number of service packs for your installation of XP, I don't give you many chances to get past part 1. (And there's also an installation CD to access the Recovery Console)

  • Problems with my installation of Windows XP and my computer does not start on the CD.

    Hi, I need BIG help here please!... I wanted to do a fresh install of Win XP Pro, but my PC didn't boot from the XP CD...

"

    Thank you!

    original title: HELP for the installation of Win XP.

    Hi Jorge,.

    So the only thing I can think is that it is a sort of master/slave thing.

    Your IDE HDD will be a Knight, probably alongside where the power cable is inserted, to dictate whether the player will be considered to be a master, slave, or cable select. Assuming that it is the only HARD drive in the PC, make sure it is designated "master". Then, in the BIOS, make sure that the boot order is specified as HDD0 first (as opposed to HDDx where x is greater than zero).

    In addition, assuming that the data cable is the new type of Ribbon with strands of 80, make sure that the blue connector of the IDE data cable is in the motherboard and that the end of the black connector is in the HARD disk and, if it is a two-disc data cable, do not use the gray connector.


  • XP Home Edition does not start without the installation CD after reinstall.

    I reinstalled XP Home Edition on my PC without formatting the drive first in order to keep all of my data.  I have installed all service packs.  However, for some reason, I had to call Microsoft to get validated.  The only problem I have now is that it does not start without the installation CD in the drive.  I have XP on the half before the C drive and me on the back of half.  The reader is a digital WD800JBRTL of Western.  Well it worked like that for years. Why can I now not start without the CD?


    It seems that the NTLDR file is not on the C: drive. NTLDR is the boot loader for all versions of Windows.

    You can perform a Windows XP repair installation & check if you are able to start normally.

    Hope the helps of information. Please post back and we do know.

  • Tecra 8000 does not start after the BIOS update

    From one day to the other does not start my Tecra 8000 (400 MHz/256 MB BIOS 9.30 for years). After start-up, the disc starts to turn, but the screen including the backlight remains completely black, without red logo TOSHIBA BIOS is not accessible.

    I got a new mainboard on stock, so I replaced it, and it worked. Unfortunately now my WLAN card now did not work properly. I tried several settings of the BIOS with no results, so I decided to do an update of the BIOS from 7.50 to 9: 30. After the upgrade, I get the message "ROM WRITE successful, utility completed. LEADER BIOS: Tecra8000 v 9,30 ". Because what either kept silent, I pressed the power button to restart and heard a long and many short beeps (endless). I could interrupt what pressing the powerbutton for 5s.

    After turning on again I have the same problem as described in the first line :-( I can't get into the BIOS, but I can again update (with pressed F12). Once again these beeps.

    What to do with these beeps after average BIOS update? I replaced the MoBo connector LED with pension. Processor, memory, keyboard and HD has remained the same. So, before I start disassembling the machine, please notify, your help is very appreciated.

    Hello Joachim

    I'm not a technician and don t know what the beeps but I am afraid that the BIOS chip is damaged. Because of this, the unit is completely dead. Sorry, but I really don t believe you can do anything. Maybe the new motherboard again :(
