Preferred Solution: Tecra M2 BSOD.

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.)

Hello,

I have my Tecra since 2007. I bought it with win XP. Until to the middle of 2011 OS works OK but later no.

When I turned up the computer, it starts and when the desktop was up and running, I just started with the touchpad or USB mouse on any item on the desktop but could not close it anymore. I could only using the keyboard and select logoff windows to n blue screen to log in again.

From that moment on I could turn on and off each application or component on the desktop.
The problem associated with Windows XP.

Unfortunately, after replacing the windows 7 32 bit with an earlier disk formatting problem remained.

Now, do not turn off your computer only toggle into hibernation. Each full shutdown ends the same, and I have to log out and log. Both the USB mouse and touch pad work the same way. It makes no difference whether the mouse is connected or not.

A:Tecra A7 PTA71E - Win XP BSOD

Hi

It looks like hardware problem.
I came to this conclusion because the new OS installation (Win 7) did not help to solve this problem.
So I think you are agree with me.

What hardware part might be affected?
Well, I think some common parts like HDD or RAM should be tested.
How?

Well, the HDD could be tested using some freeware tools like Drive Fitness Test.

The software RAM tests are not really helpful and I think notebook should be tested using new good working modules.
But of course it?s just an assumption from my side?

If you don?t want to spent money for new RAM modules only to check if its ok or not, visit an technician who could do that for you.

A friend entrusted me with her Toshiba Tecra A2 (1.75GHz, 489MB RAM, 40GB HD, XP Pro SP1), which was suffering from the usual middle-age-terminally-slow-operating system problems, caused by badly clogged registry etc...I ensured her that I wouldn't break it, or at least wouldn't make it any worse, and she would be ?30 better off than taking it to a tech shop for them to look at.

So I did the following, standard stuff, all of which worked fine.

*Disk clean-up (from C:\ properties)
*msconfig to remove unnecessary startup programs
*Full scan disk
*full defrag
*hooked up online to run liveupdate for Norton AV
*ran a standard, basic registry cleansing program
*whilst online ran several passes of windows update, with several reboots all without error.


It then took all afternoon installing SP2, and upon reboot, it went through the usual XP-style sky blue boot screens I expected post-SP installation i.e. "please wait.............................."

then seemed to crash, reboot, and displayed the blue screen of death, and this message:

Hi

Do you get the BSOD during the BIOS update procedure?
Do you use the Toshiba preinstalled Windows OS? or did you install your own system?

If you installed your own system, then you should check that VAP is installed as well.

Furthermore I found this info regarding the BIOS update:

+Caution !+

+Please close all applications before executing the update.+

+At the end of this process, the computer will be rebooted in order to update the EC.+

A:Tecra 9000 - BSOD after display driver installation

Hi

BSOD is a result of serious software issue or hardware malfunction.
You said this BSOD appears after installation of graphic card driver.

First of all; did you install the right graphic driver?
Secondly; did you install the Win XP patches?

The Toshiba driver page provides some Win XP drivers for this notebook model?
The drivers are placed in Archive area because this notebook is an oldie?
Should check it?

If the BSOD will still appear after Windows XP update and after right driver installation then a hardware issue could be the reason for this issue?
By hardware malfunction I mean the graphic chip issue or memory module issue?.

My faithful 8100 (W2K sp4) has developed an irritating fault. If you press Fn-F5 (Display control), the system promptly crashes.

It's quite hard to see what is said 'cos the BSOD message flashes by very quickly.
However, it looks like Stop 0x00000050 (0xF000FF54) Page fault in non-paged area.

Now I have no idea whay this has started. In case it was software I re-imaged the boot partition back to a stable image from 12 months ago but it makes no difference.

Its something to do with windows for sure. If I press Fn-F5 before the Windows has loaded there is no problem.

I'll try it in safe mode tomorrow to see if that helps but if anyone has any experience of something similar I'd love to hear it.

Thanks for any info

A:Tecra 8100 W2K: Fn+F5 produces Blue Screen of Death (BSOD)

The bad thing about those Blue Screens is, besides they are really annoying, that their error messages are just good for nothing. Never found out what Windows wants to tell me with this ;)

At the moment it is a bit hard to say what this has caused, but you could try to install new display drivers. They can be found at the Support & Downloads section.
So, safe mode seems to be a good idea for testing, because most of the drivers are not loaded, including the graphic card one's.

Perhaps this helps.

A:Can I use Tecra A10 OS disk to install OS on Tecra M10?

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.

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.

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

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

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 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?

In some cases this is not possible if the notebook series has been discontinued.
But check this page:

Usually you could order the recovery disks there.
But if it?s not possible, then you will need to install the Windows using an Microsoft disk!
The necessary drivers could be found on the Toshiba European driver page:

Note: you have to choose Archive in the driver download form in order to find the Tecra M7 series.

The first three lights come on,when I try to start it . Nothing else happens no noise or anything. I have tried taking battery out,starting with external power only still the same.

Does it sound expensive to fix.

A:Tecra A2 is not powering up

Can you please post a bit more about this machine?
Have you bought it as used one and now you try to fix it?

Have you maybe tried to update BIOS and now you have this problem?

On this virtual way it is not easy to offer exact diagnostic but it doesn?t sound good to me. Maybe is BIOS screwed-up. Repair can be pretty expencive.

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.

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

Oliver

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.

Hi,

Yesterday my PC (a Tecra W50-A; with Windows 8.1 x64) performed an automatic windows update. Upon finishing the update, some keyboard keys stopped working (keys A, B, N, right Shift and both Enter's). Since everything was fine before the update, I think it is not hardware-related but rather associated to the update itself, such as installed software or drivers.
In the meanwhile, I have tried to restore my PC to a time point prior to the Windows Update, but the problem persists. I have also tried to find the original drivers for this model in Toshiba website, but couldn't figure out which driver to download/install (none specific for keyboard).

Looking forward for your help.
Thank you in advance

Best regards,
Sandro.

We bought a Crucial M550 256GB disk and want to replace in a Toshiba Tecra Z50-Av1

We do not want to make any transfer of data or cloned.
We want to do a clean install with Windows 8.1
The BIOS recognizes the SSD

But when you install Windows 8.1 does not detect any disk connected to the unit and requested additional drivers. Windows not detect drive

any help?
Thanks

A:Tecra Z50-A-11V: New SSD but Win 8.1 does not detect it

Hi

Did you solve this issue?
Could you install the Windows 8.1 system on this SSD drive?

I think the additional driver installation while setup procedure isn?t necessary since Win 8.1 should already contain the essential drivers.
From my point of few there could be an compatibility issue (maybe SSD firmware update would solve this).

How about the usage of other SSD drives? Do you have the same problem using other SSD drives from other manufactures?

Feedback would be appreciated.

Is this possible or not possible?

Of course you can do this. All you must do is to use “extended desktop” option.

I need to (re)format my laptop, I have a Tecra M11-103 with Windows 7 pro 64bit. I received it with only an WXP downgrade CD but no Windows 7 installation CD.

Laptop no longer under warranty. How do I reformat? It seems like I used to have a nero backup software as it came bundled with laptop a long time (and a format under warranty) ago...

Is it possible to get nero again?
Thanks

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.

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?

I want to use this old laptop which originally had win98. I managed to put win xp on it, but it is unworkable slow. Today I tried Lubuntu (a linux distributioon specific for oldies) but that too is too slow.

I don?t know which ?new? OS do you mean but fact is that you have old piece of hardware and if you want to have well working machine you should install supported operating systems ony.

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.

I had played with the idea of replacing the Intel P9400 Core Duo with something a bit new, to allow perhaps installing Win 7 and more memory. There is 3gb of ram installed.

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
