>> Re: toshiba 6100 wont turn on
I found this forum/thread when my out-of-warrantyToshiba 6100 suddenly stopped powering on. Reseating the video card did not work and I do not have the tools/skills to diagnose or fix the 80+ pin connectors on the video and power cards. After another google search, I found a guy on eBay who was auctioning his services to repair and improve the Toshiba 6100 design flaw. I sent him my motherboard, video card and power card (~$12 via UPS ground) and $245 (which included return shipping via UPS ground). Three days after he received the boards, he sent them back to me, I reinstalled everything and the laptop fired up like a charm on the first try. (Of course the whole process took longer because UPS ground is slow, but his turn around time was only 3 days.) The improvements that I could see were that after fixing the connectors, he appears to have put some kind of clear sealant over the pins to keep them from breaking free again. I've only had the laptop back together for a few days, but his auction had plenty of testimonials as to the longevity of his fixes. He was extremely pleasant and helpful as far as advice on disassembly, shipping and reassembly and $267 is significantly cheaper than buying a new motherboard which seems to be common advice from repair places. So, if you are like me and know enough to take your laptop apart but not enough to fix a board, then this might be a solution for you. It sure was for me - I'm really happy to have this laptop up and running again at a bargain price. If you go to his website there is contact info and links to his current eBay listings.

I have a toshiba 6100 which was working fine until last night. I decided to conserve the battery life of the machine and so removed the battery from the system. I have dome this with IBM and Sony laptops before, but when I powered the toshiba up using only the a/c adapter the computer gave a bad checsum error and asked me to go into the bios. after this, it booted into XP normally, tho it did say the system time was wrong. thinking nothing more of it, i shut the computer down and left it. Today I find the computer completely lifeless. There are no lights that come on, the computer won't boot up. I have tried putting the battery back in and using the a/c adapter, but there is nothing! I only bought this computer yesterday!! please can somebody help.
