Ok. I will try that. Also I have my son hunting a phillips head in case---
It looks like you didn't get my entire response so I'll copy it
re-read your post i sounds like you did something to your video adapter is all. possible even just the laptop screen. do you have a desktop VGA monitor by chance
yes- a dell and a viewsonic
ok, if you cant get in at startup we do this: this would be soooo much easier on a desktop PC but u need to reset the CMOS. i'll have to lookup the access to it but it means opening the laptop and either removing the button-cell battery or if it's soldered in shorting itI am pretty good at electronics but I just want to make sure this button-cell battery has nothing to do with the outer battery compartment. It doesnt sound like it so I have hope again.
we need to close this out and open a new thread .... lists your open question as 3 i just cant find it
closed thread cant figure how to use the open question to you so I will let it expire and start this new thread to you
In any event, you did not flash the BIOS of your Toshiba. who is the BIOS manufacturer?Have no clue but I looked on the toshiba site and got a list of drivers some of which I loaded. I will paste the link.
Fn + F5 gave me nothing still. I will start using the screwdriver and wait for the next step.
hooked up the external monitor, unplugged power, booted up twice, used fn+f5 rhe second time. Both were a no go.
Have I given you my headache yet? Hope not cuz I don't want you having to go home to take some excedrin.
Every time we think all the screws are out and try to pop it open we see more we missed. Don't know whats holding it closed now. guess I'll have to wait for you to find that diagram. I would look on toshiba.com but dont know exactly what to look for.
Do I need to send more $$ yet or can I leave it as your bonus?
you have got to be kidding me Angus--- When I try to download the manual it says I don't have permission!! GRRRR!
Any chance you can copy and paste?
