Toshiba laptop BIOS not loading on power up

September 3, 2010 at 03:19:22
Specs: Windows XP, 1.8GHz Intel Dual / 1Gb DDR2
I was using a Toshiba P100 laptop and after getting frustrated with a few game crashes I pressed the power button in quick succession and I think the BIOS has been deleted - I can turn it on, but the screen displays nothing and the HDD and DVD drive run for a bit and still respond. I figured I migh ttry to reset the BIOS by disconnectiong the CMOS battery , but I could not properly take out the MB so I put it all back together now it won't even power on. It was a really great laptop, any suggestions without replacing the MotherBoard?

You can't delete the bios by pressing the power switch. Depending on what games you were trying to play, you may have overheated the machine and that's why it froze. Laptops aren't made for gaming. I would suggest you take it to a shop for repair.

I know that it's not overheating - crashes were caused by game modding (probably unrelated to not powering up). I've heard about destroying computers by pressing the power button rapidly/repeatedly, anyone else wanna try it?

It was just faulty SODIMM slot..
