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!

Hello,

My laptop was slow. So I used hijackthis and found few suspicious entries. I deleted them. One of them was thotkey. Now my function keys are not working. So FN + F1 to FN + F12 is not working. I have Tecra A series with XP 32-bit OS. From where can I download this utility again?

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.

A problem has recently developed with my Envy notebook.   About 2 weeks ago my entire wireless network began slowing down when on it.   Noticeable on all devices.    When my provider came out, checked and tweaked some issues it appeared to be ok.   I went on with my daughers HP laptop and was drawing 20-24 mbps all over the house. When I reconnected mine to the system I was only pulling 6, 3, 5, up and down.   It doesn't start right away but after a few minutes.   So I put my duaghers right next ot mine and low and behold, when I ran her's it pulled 3 - 6 also.   So I turned my wi-fi off and hers' popped right back up.   I have also tried this with an old XP mini, my i-pads etc.   As soon as mine gets on the network the speed crashes.    This also happens with no one else home and no other devies conncted. I have downloaded the latest up to date Intel driver for this network adapter and it hasn't changed anything. Any ideas?

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?

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.

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.

Any ideas? I'm stumped and think I might need to get her another notebook.

Hi,

I'm trying one of this popular caddy's that allows me to put a second hard drive in the optical slot bay, I use a Sata to Sata adapter, so there is not really an adapter besides connecting properly:

[http://www.akasa.co.uk/update.php?tpl=product/product.detail.tpl&no=181&type=Enclosures&type_sub =2.5%20Enclosure&model=AK-OA2SSA-BK]

My problem is with Toshiba BIOS that is expecting a ODD device in that Sata port and cames out with a "CD-ROM error", disabling the Sata port.

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.

Is there any help, a Beta BIOS or something else, I have the last BIOS 3.00 for this machine installed.

Hello,

we are encountering unusual problems with one of our Tecra devices.

Background info:

(The Laptop is used mostly in docked mode).

Occasionaly the screen won't turn on (laptop aswell as ext. monitor) while the laptop is used in dock-mode when the system is powered on by the user.

The user is also facing this issue, when the device is used outside the dock (eg. presentations) and reputting it into the docking station.

As said, the issues arrive occasionaly and we can't spot the problem.

Things I've already did:

- Update BIOS/UEFI to newest version
- Check multiple BIOS/ Windows settings e.g. Power-Settings -> disabled most of them that could cause this weird behavior
- Checked display drivers (Intel) and updatet them to the newest (no beta drivers)

The solution now exists of powering off the device via hard reset (pressing the power button for multiple settings), restarting the system and then putting it back into the docking station.

As you can imagine, this problem is very frustrating to us when the user has worked on something important and hasn't saved his progress before leaving meetings, because he knew he will be at his office, putting his device back in, but nothing happens and we have to hard reset it.

I appreciate any kind of help.

Best regards,

How much memory can i fit in a Tecra M10-1CN and should it be in two 200 Pin SO DIMM DDR2 PC2-6400 800MHz modules

A:How much memory can i fit in a Tecra M10-1CN?

Hi

The memory expand possibility depends on the chipset of the motherboard
The Tecra M10 supports the Mobile Intel(R) GM45 Express chipset? and this chipset supports max DDR2 800MHz 8GB RAM

So first of all you can use 2 x 4GB RAM modules and secondly the memory speed is limited to 800MHZ.

Even if you would use faster modules i.e. 1033Mhz the FSB would clock down the speed to 800Mhz? so it?s not worth to use faster modules than DDR2 800Mhz

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.

Hi all,

This is a problem I have been facing for about one month.
I've already asked help to the Microsoft support and I manage to circumstance the problem, unfortunately without being able to solve it.
The problem is the following:

Every time I plug an external hard drive via USB I am asked to format it before using it. This of course I do not want to do. This problem appeared all of a sudden, before everything was working perfectly.

My external hard drives work perfectly in other enclosures namely other laptops.

Additionally, if I reboot Windows 7 in the "safe mode" I can connect the external hard drives via USB without problems. It appears it is something I've got recently which is conflicting to my external hard drives.

Could it be any Toshiba update? Do you have any idea about things I could try to locate the problem?

Upon finishing the update, some keyboard keys stopped working (keys A, B, N, right Shift and both Enter's).

Generally speaking graphic card upgrade on notebooks is not supported and I think not possible. http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/kb0/TSB9401AX0001R01.htm

Back to your problem:
In user?s manuals is written
As the port operation of all DVI (Digital Visual interface) monitors has not been confirmed, some DVI monitors may not function properly.

Page 86.

Have you tested it with different monitors? I mean from different manufacturers?

Does any one see any problems swapping out the 160GB HDD for a 1TB HDD i have already partitioned/formatted and installed XP PRO on the 1 TB HDD in my Satellite M-105 and it is working fine in there but would prefer it in the faster newer TECRA Laptop.

Thanks

A:Tecra M10 - HDD upgrade

Hi

I think this should not be a big problem since the SATA controller should handle the 1TB HDD.

You can test it using the HDD from the M105? the replacement is not difficult and both units M105 and M10 supports the same SATA HDD.

Hello,

I own a Tecra A8-133 (PTA83E-0E403MBT ).
To give a kick to my aging laptop I bought a corsair neutron GTX SSD. Unfortunately, after
many attempts, and some corsair support, it seems the SSD is not compatible with that TECRA.

I'm ready to buy a new one, but, obviously I want to be 100% sure the SSD is compatible this time.

How can I find a list of compatible devices for this laptop ?

As a SATA 1 laptop, I know the performance will be restrained, but I don't care too much.

Any help would be appreciated.


Thank you

A:Compatible SSD for Tecra A8-133

Hi

What?s wrong exactly?

I found some specification of the mentioned SSD drive from Corsair and it looks like the SSD drive is designed to support the latest high-speed standard SATA III (6Gb/s).
But it?s seems to be fully backward compatible with SATA II and SATA I. So it should be compatible?

From my knowledge there are no any special info regarding the SDD dive compatibility.
In some cases the SSD drive manufacturers provides an SSD drive firmware updates and sometimes such update helps to sort out some issues.

Hi, I've a Tecra that came with Win Pro 7 Sp1 that was upgraded with supplied Recovery DVDs to Win 8 Pro and subsequently online to 8.1 and Win 10.
Win 8 and 8.1 ran fine but with so many problems on Win 10, I eventually went for "scratch" install with the recovery Win 8 DVDs.

Zapped the entire HDD using the Recovery DVDs but finally get the following msg after Win 8 had been re-installed: "Windows Setup could not configure Windows to run on this computer"
Ran "MSoobe" , as recommended on other forums and while this advanced the process, Windows ultimately did not run.

Any ideas anyone?
Thanks - davidtjm

I try to eject Cdrom and hdd but it hasn't any video yet.

A:Re: Tecra M2 has no video

Hi

On this way it is not possible to say what is wrong there. Obviously there is some serious hardware problem. Who knows what is wrong there.

Have you bought this old Tecra and try to get it work or what?

Hi,

In my laptop model Tecra A8 # PTA83L-02K014, current HDD is Fujitsu 60 GB SATA (mode# MHV2060BH).
I want to upgrade it to 320GB/500GB.

Please suggest a replacement HDD.
I cannot figure out which HDD I should buy.

Regards,
kannit

A:HDD upgrade for Tecra A8

This old Tecra was delivered with several HDDs (from 60 up to 120GB). God thing is that this Tecra uses SATA HDDs so; generally speaking HDD upgrade should not be problematic.

Which HDD can you use? In my opinion HDD with around 300GB should be enough for this old piece of hardware. Just buy SATA 2,5? HDD. Talk with your local dealer and buy high quality product.

HDD replacement is not complicated and you can do it alone. If you need some help you are welcome.

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.
