Tecra notebook - Right Alt F4 key

Q: Tecra notebook - Right Alt F4 key

This is my first post so apologies for any mistakes they are unintentional. Now does anyone know of a method that can use the right alt f4 key to be functional instead of shutting the computer down.

It is a requirement of a game.
Thank you

Preferred Solution: Tecra notebook - Right Alt F4 key

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Tecra notebook - Right Alt F4 key

As far as I know ALT+F4 closes the applications but it cannot be used for notebook shutdown.
FN+F4 activate hibernation mode and notebook will be “shut down”.

Hello, what kind of device do I need in order to connect an old Tecra 8000 hard drive to a notebook from an other manufacture?

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

A:Tecra 8000 - How to connect HDD to an other notebook?

Hi!

You can use an external HDD case with USB port for this.
The external HDD case should be for 2.5? HDD?s and with IDE interface. That?s all.

Contact your local computer dealer. I?m sure they will have such cases.

I extend my Tecra laptop to an external monitor and has worked fine until a couple of days ago where the monitor screen has suddenly started showing a red tint on the screen whereas my laptop screen has a normal colour on it.

I have tried 2 different monitors and 2 different VGA cables so it must be a problem with the display settings or hardware in the laptop. Anyone have an idea of why this is happening?

A:Tecra notebook - Red tint on extended monitor

It is not easy to give you some concrete answer to your question. In my opinion this should be checked by Toshiba service provider.

I don't know which Tecra do you have and which video-out ports it has but if there is also HDMI port available try to test it with your TV.

High all
Can anyone tell me how to tell what the model I have? I am trying to download the drivers for my machine but am not sure what series / model it is.

I have the following information on the base of the machine:

TOSIBA Tecra 8200
Model No: PT820E-05WQT-E
Serial No: 61276516G ST820-0

It is a Pentium 3 machine but is it an: A / M / R / S series? Then what model do I select after that please?

Thanks.

A:Tecra 8200 - Which notebook Model number do I have?

Your Tecra is simply Tecra 8200 and there is no other model number.
Drivers you can find on Toshiba download page under http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com > Support & Downloads but under Product type you must choose option ARCHIVE.

Then you will find option for Tecra 8200.

Good luck!

There are different Toshiba notebooks on the market and Toshiba releases new models in very short intervals.

The Tecra laptops offer a business professional use and Portege series are very best in mobile computing.

At first I must say that Toshiba recovery image is created for each notebook model separately and it is 100% created to work on specific model. Why?
Every notebook model has different hardware platform and all drivers, tools and utilities for certain model are part of recovery image. These recovery images are also tested.

Generally speaking if both models have identical hardware platform (hardware parts) it can be used.

Bill_Ving Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!I read your post about wireless networking poor performance and wanted to help. My immediate guess is that you might have mixed-mode networking going on.  This happens when you have two different PCs networking in two different modes -- one using "G", the other using "N".  The wireless router (or access point) can optimize performance for either mode, but not for both.  So, the "G" mode drags down the performance of the "N" mode PC, but even worse, with the router set for mixed modes, it performs more slowly than with either PC connected by itself.Here are some other troubleshooting steps you can try: HP PCs - Troubleshooting Wireless Network and Internet (Windows 8) | HP® Customer SupportGood Luck========================================================================I am a volunteer and I do not work for, nor do I represent, HP.---------------------------------------------------------------Please click "Accept As Solution" on the post that solves your issue to help others find the solution.Please click the Thumbs-Up symbol on the left of the Reply button to say thanks fopr my help.========================================================================

I made them all collaborators on the notebook so they could all make any changes or annotations they felt necessary. However, when they go to access this notebook they are prompted for a password.

There is nowhere (at least that I can find) to even choose to password protect the notebook let alone change the password. I'm pretty confused as to what password the notebook could be. The only thing I can think of is that it's asking for the password to my gmail account, which I don't really want to be handing out. Any ideas on this one gang?

My wife has a two-year-old Samsung notebook. Recently when she unplugged it the machine cut off, even though the battery said 79% charged (it wouldn't charge any further). I figured that the battery was bad so I bought another one from Amazon.

This one charges to 100% percent and does exactly the same thing. I'm perplexed but think there's something going on with the motherboard that won't let it use battery juice, even if Windows 8.1 says it's 100% charged.

I've tried the hold the power button down for 1 min with the battery out trick to no avail.

New here and so I hope that I am posting in the correct place.
My new notebook an M50-MX5 was in the warranty depot as we thought it had a dvd burning problem, however that was not the case; it was the media.

Anyway before it was sent into the toshiba warranty depot the level 2 tech phone support said to get the computer to be like it was when I unboxed it 2 days earlier, this was last month.
And so to my frustration all of my programs were removed, however before doing this the software techie at the office Ghosted it to my Western Digital Storage Unit and then sent it off to the Warranty Depot.

While it was in the shop I used my 3 yr old toshiba satellite 2410 which I am now typing on at this moment.
I was finally able to get the software tech from the office to reGhost my new toshiba M50 on this past Saturday and left it with him for a couple of hrs and then returned to pick it up as there was not much in the way of programs on it and so it wouldn't take long to Ghost the Images back.

Well, in my Western Digital Storage unit are Ghosts of this 3 year old satellite that I am presently using.
After the techie got my Restore Disk installed and tried to reGhost the image onto the New M50, it crashed.

He was using the wrong Ghost, he was using the one that was from this unit???
I was not happy, especially after he claimed that he now had it Ghosted with the proper Image and I tried it out and it was very sloooooow to Boot. He said it was my Norton 2006.

Something you might want to try (it's a pita) is a repair of windows - this may fix some of the slowness issues you're seeing. The install program he's talking about is probably the U3 component of many larger USB pen drives. I think it's on most of Sandisk's newer large drives. A repair of windows might also take care of this. I seriously doubt that putting the wrong image on the machine and then putting another image on could do any damage to the machine itself - the folks here at my job do it all the time.

I have a workaround, if I start the PC, after BIOS post with anything in ODD bay, after starting Windows, I insert the second HDD in the ODD bay, go to "Windows Device Manager" do a "Check for hardware changes" and voil?, the second HDD is working fine, to me this proves a BIOS limitation.

I wonder whether anyone might be able to answer a question for me.

I have a nice Tecra R10-11B and it has been very good for quite a few years. It runs Win XP and does everything asked of it without a problem.

What I would like to find out, though, is whether it is possible to fit a quicker CPU. I have a suspicion that the installed cpu may be permanently fixed and is not replaceable but I would like to find out.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

A:CPU upgrade on Tecra R10

The CPU is socked and this means that the CPU is removable.
But the important fact is that notebook manufacturers don?t support CPU upgrade.
One of the main reasons is the BIOS which is mostly modified by notebook manufacturers.

But let?s start with some basic knowledge:
The CPU has to be supported by chipset and BIOS.

So let?s check what CPU would be supported by Mobile Intel GS45 Express Chipset which is part of the Tecra R10-11B
Here on this Intel Ark page you can find compatible CPUs
http://ark.intel.com/products/35505/Intel-82GS45-Graphics-and-Memory-Controller-Hub#@compatibility

But even if the chipset would support new CPU, some compatibility problems may appear because of the BIOS.
However, the Intel Core 2 Duo CPUs ( Montevina Penryn) were equipped in different R10 models, so probably other Intel Core 2 Duo CPUs would be supported.

By the way: the RAM could be upgraded up to 4GB RAM

A:Tecra A11 - Win XP and Win 98 multiboot

Well, Win XP installation should not be a big problem because the Win XP drivers seem to be available on Toshiba European driver page.

But Win 98 might be a problem here since its not supported and the drivers are not available? you will need to search for such drivers at your hand and I think this might be a painful time? I doubt you will be able to get Win 98 drivers because this OS is really, really old.

I would recommend installing the Win 98 only using Virtual Machine (VM) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virtual_machine

This is very easy? running Win XP you can open virtual PC or VM and could start the Win 98

A:How to reinstall my Tecra M11-103?

Hi

According notebook specification your Tecra was delivered with preinstalled WIN7 64BIT PROFESSIONAL and you got additional WXP DVD. Original Win7 recovery image was saved on HDD and using preinstalled Toshiba recovery media creator you have had possibility to back-up recovery image and create bootable recovery installation disc.
How it works is described in user?s manuals document.

I don?t know if you have created this disc but now after WXP installation you need this recovery disc. Of course, if you want to have ?factory settings?, you need this disc. Other way, you can obtain Microsoft installation disc and install Win7. All necessary drivers, tools and utilities you can find and download from Toshiba download page.

I hope you understand the situation but if you have more questions you are welcome.

What do you think about that?

Hello at all,
I have some Problems with the sound of my Toshiba Tecra A10. I already installed the Realtek Audio Driver and I see the little Speaker symbol down on the right side,too.

But I hear nothing. The Device Manager has a yellow Question Mark on "Modem Device on High Definition Audio Bus".

I Installed the Agere Systems Modem, but nothing happened.

Can someone help me and give me a link for this Driver I need.
I use Windows XP.

Hardware Detail:

HDAUDIO\FUNC_02&VEN_11C1&DEV_1040&SUBSYS_11790001& REV_1002\4&9E9AEC4&0&0101

Regards,

A:Tecra A10 - No Sound using Win XP

> I use Windows XP.

Ok, I though similar issues with Win XP on other notebooks with new HD audio from Realtek.
The point is that you need SP2 and SP3!

The SP2 and SP3 provides important fixes and patches for HD audio?
So first of all uninstall the installed Realtek audio driver.
Then install the SP2 and SP3.
Then go to the device manager and delete the devices marked with yellow exclamation mark.
Then reboot the notebook.
Now Win XP should found a new audio device and should ask for the driver.
No you should install the sound driver from Realtek.
Reboot once again? and now the sound should works fine?

I am trying to rebuild a Tecra M3 Model PTM30A-1DD002 for a friend. I have installed Windows XP Professional but each time I try to install a service pack it seems to hang.

I have tried SP1 & SP3 and each time it starts off gets about a minute in and then just sits and does nothing. I left the machine on for a couple of hours and it just doesn't do anything. On SP1 it says it is "backing up files" and SP3 says "Checking Product Code".

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

A:Cannot install SP3 on a Tecra M3

As far as I know Tecra M3 is delivered with WXP SP2 Professional so for WXP installation use Microsoft WXP installations disc with already integrated SP2 or SP3.

Do you have original Toshiba installations disc?

Hi,

my TECRA A10-1HG PTSB1E does'nt recognize my second HDD who has taken the place of the cd-rom.
i'm using a SATA caddy, and the A10 boot with a CD-rom Error !!!
is it not possible to use a caddy with one TECRA A10?
Anybody have a solution ?

Thanks for your experience return.
Best regards

A:Tecra A10 does'nt recognize 2nd HDD in ODD bay

Hi

I assume the Tecra A10 does not support such upgrade.
The 2nd SATA controller does not seem to support the additional HDD instead of ODD.

But I read about some tricks to get such2nd HDD recognized.
You need to boot the notebook without the HDD caddy in the ODD bay.
After the Windows system has booted up, you could plug/connect the HDD caddy and the PnP system service should recognize the new device.

I think its not the best solution but it looks like it?s the only solution to get such HDD caddy recognized in ODD bay

HI, was wondering if anyone has had a similar problem: on boot up the screen flashes red instead of black, with vertical lines (white thin ones) across the screen. When it finally boots with windows xp, there are horizontal lines across the screen with different shades of the colour. The cursor has a box of lines around it. I think it's a VGA card issue but am not sure; has anyone had similar problems? I have visited irisvista on the web, where there are some instructions on disassembly. I got to the connector to the LCD and repositioned it, and noticed that when I appllied pressure in this area I could get near normal display.... can anyone shed some light???

It sounds like there might be something wrong with the cable or cable connector. Can you try another cable?

Have read many posts and tried what was suggested. I pulled the 2 memory modules and cleaned the contacts with an eraser. I inserted only one of the modules at a time, switching slots etc. and then powered it up each time. Once with only 1 module installed, I got the WINDOWS XP startup screen (with the moving bar below) and then the Toshiba Splash screen appeared and then the screen went blank again. Seems like the hard drive starts up and then stops. The DVD drive seems to respond with a low clicking sound. I hear a couple chirps/clicks from the hardware but no beeps whatsoever.

I'm guessing bad RAM. I will try with some new RAM later when I get some.

Since I did get the machine to sort of startup once, am I safe to assume the BIOS and Motherboard are okay ?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

For the graphics card on Tecra S1, is the mother board attached to it so that it cannot be seperated? If so, how much would it cost to replace the board? Thanks for the help~
 

A:Question about Tecra S1

About $75 to $150, used. Much more new. Better to buy a better laptop. Or lurk on eBay until you see the right package.

See subject. I'm not able to add another OS on these laptops (I've got 5 Tecra's S5). Windows XP is on the computer now and because I want to format the computer (classified data) I want to add W7.
When I start no drivers were found on non of the 5 laptops.

Does anyone knows about this issue?

A:Cannot add another OS on Tecra S5, but XP is already installed

I assume you get an message about missing HDD while system installation.
Right?

I think you need to add SATA drivers while Win 7 setup.

There is an Intel Storage Manager on the Toshiba EU driver page which contains the SATA driver.
You can find the Tecra S5 drivers in Archive (Product type -> Archive)

Hi,

my Fan is running continously and Health Monitor reports Fan Problem. How do I get to the Fan? Where do I get a Service Manual?
I followed the instruction to blow air from outside- as expected this didn?t work
PS: ( if the only answer is that there is no Service Manual and to contact a Service Partner that will be my last Toshiba- from a pro model and its Prices I expect a little bit more)

thx for your answer

A:Cleaning of Fan for Tecra A50

Service manaual is not a public document and not free for the download.
I’m sorry if this will be your last Toshiba but don't be sure that another manufacturer will give you service manuals. No one will give you such document.

Notebooks have specific design and it is pretty easy to damage something. That’s the reason why the disassembling procedure should be done by authorized personal only. When you buy TV, auto or anything else nobody will give you service manuals.

Of course you can do with your notebook whatever you will but on your own risk.

Have you tried to remove the dust using compressed air.
