    Hi,

    I have a tecra 9100 that is not booting at the moment. When I turn it on I get the Tosh splash screen and I can choose a boot device if I want. Whatever I choose (HDD/CD) all I get is the flashing cursor in the top left corner.

    I have taken the HDD out and tried to boot of a CD/DVD but that does not work either. Also I can't seem to get into the BIOS, I have tried doing an upgrade via a bootable CD but that didn't work either.

    Cheers for any help

    Hi

    Did you try to use ESC and then F1 to enter the BIOS?
    Check in the BIOS the boot sequence.

    Bye

    I have tried to get into the BIOS but it won't come up with the F1 prompt when I press the ESC key. It does work on my other 9100 so I know I am doing it correctly.

    PS: Had to changemy ID, I kept getting "Your ID is not valid for this country. Please go to the Toshiba website where you set up your ID with Toshiba."

    Hi

    As far as I know the Toshiba HW setup should be installed on the unit. There you will find many options similar to the BIOS options. There you will find also a ‘boot priority’ tab. In this tab you can also change the boot priority. Check this possibility.

    Hope this helps

    Cheers for that, I don't think it's a problem with the boot order as that has not changed since I last powered the laptop on about 3 months ago and I can't even get into the BIOS on this laptop. I do get the tosh spalsh screen and it allowes me to choose a boot device, but whatever I choose it does not boot. I know the HDD is fine as I have put it in another laptop.
