Question about Toshiba Computers & Internet
I have a Toshiba Tecra M5 that won't boot up. I have bought it as working but without a hard drive and ram. I have fitted a new hard drive and 1GB Ram now but when i turn it on it won't boot. I get the toshiba splash screen and i am able to select a boot device (after pressing F2) but when i select the boot device i just get a flashing cursor on a blank screen and nothing more. One thing i did note is that once i t has been on this screen for 5-10 seconds the fan comes on flat out and stays on. Also i am unable to get into the bios. I have tried pressing the esc key during the flash screen but it just goes to the blank screen with the flashing cursor. If i try to put a windows disk into the drawer (whether a dvd or cd) you can hear the drive begin to spin up like its going to read the disk then it stops and nothing. I can't think what to do so any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Man you push alt+ Ctrl +p so you can get it the Bios specially where has been saw it the flash cursor you will see now BIOS normally
