I just aqiured a toshiba tecra 9000,--1.2ghz--takes pc133 memory
i dons't have a hard drive nor any memory.
When i press the on button the power ligh comes on, but no screen.
So i tried putting in a stick of pc 100 and got a "please remove incompatible memory from slot a" or somthing simular.
Ok i thought it just needs pc133 to get to the bios screen.
But when i put in the pc133 and turn on the laptop the screen stays blank--power light comes on, but thats it, no beeps or anything.
Is it becuase there is no Hard drive in the slot?
Shouldn't i at least get to the bios screen anyway??
Could it be the cmos battery needs to be changed?
I got the "incompatiable memory screen" so the lcd screen works
I got a caddy and hard drive comming next week, plus some more memory.
