Toshiba TECRA M2 Boot problems Tags: Tecra Toshiba Components Last response: January 27, 2009 7:48 PM in Components Share forfein January 16, 2009 4:20:50 PM Hi Silly me bought a Toshiba TECRA M2 Laptop off eBay Needless to say it dont work ! The power lights will come on, but that is as far as it will go. I have attached it to external monitor, still the same result I have taken it apart, and there was hardly any dust/dirt started it up with the keyboard not connected to see if the fan started to spin, but nothing ! I left it on for a half hour or so, and the CPU was quite warm, so it is getting that far. I removed the memory, and then reseated it, but it still aint fixed. Any other ideas ? or do I need a need board? Thanks Geoff More about : toshiba tecra boot problems evongugg January 21, 2009 1:41:19 PM Sounds like a power problem. Not getting juice from the wall. jamesgoddard January 21, 2009 7:35:06 PM when you plug the lappy into the wall you should get two lights at the front on, then when you power the unit up there are three - how many lights do you have and are they amber or green... If the third light comes on - does it sound like it's booting - if you stick a DVD / CD in does it try to spin it up and read it on boot? And the CPU fan only spins up when the CPU gets to a certain temp... PS I have an M2 - lovely little lappy but sounds like you got a dud Can't find your answer ? Ask !
