I have a toshiba tecra 8200 laptop. I started getting a warning during boot, a "cheksum error, cmos". it allowed me to boot into windows about 6 times and now it no longer boots.
ive replaced the RTC battery with the correct replacement. the first time I put the battery in and booted the machine, it listed a different error but i dont remember exactly what it was. it only allowed me to get that far once and since then, all i get is a green light in the front for about a second or two and nothing else. no hd spin, no cpu/ fan spin etc....
any suggestions? maybe my new rtc battery is bad? im thinkn of taking it to radio shack tomorrow to see if they can test it.
thanks for the help
