My bad. Actually, if you download and install the Win2000 version of Toshiba
utility, you can adjust all the BIOS settings there(include display setting)
in stead of reboot the machine to go into the BIOS.

 No, there is only one monitor shown, the notebook screen, and I want to
send it to an external monitor (beamer).

 There is no choice in display properties.

 If you've installed the TOshiba Utilities from www.csd.toshiba.com -
support
 downloads for the Libretto, you can startup the program to adjust the
behavior
 of the power button (and lid) to do what you want.

 Thus, you can make it suspend when you close the lid (or hibernate); and
same
 with the power button.

 

 Here, I've got the power button to hibernate and it works fine on my L110.

The battery simply reaches its end of life. There is no warning or slow
dieing. It's quick and sudden death. I know it because I'm on my third
battery now. They average about a year and half depends on usage. If you
want longer living battery, keep it on AC power all the time! Li-ion
batteries only have 500 to 1000 recharge cycles. My current battery has
already beat all the odds and in its third year now (granted I don't use the
lib that often and it's always on AC). It's going to be dead anytime. Don't
know if there still is company out there selling Lib battery packs?!

 Subject: Re: [LIB] Charging problem

 I'm having problems charging the battery on my 100CT too Raymond.  I was
 about to post a question about it when I found your note.  I've checked
the
 service manual, aksed Iris, and search the Lib list archives, but can't
find
 an answer.

 My 100 won't power on from the battery which sees to be dead, thought it
had
 been powering the system fine the other day.  It does boot with the AC
 adapter connected.  But for some reason the LED for the battery suddenly
 started blinking twice quickly, staying on for a few seconds, then
blinking
 twice again, and continuing that way.  This pattern persists wither or not
 the system is booted.

 Unless there's a simple solution, I'm afraid either either the battery or
 charging circuit has gone bad.  I'm wondering if this might be connected
to
 having O/Ced the system to 266, and all of the WinXP crashes the system
has
 been subjected to.

 Any thoughts on this would be much appreciated.

 Matt


 From: Raymond [EMAIL PROTECTED]
 
 Hi all!
 
 
 Looks like my trusty L100 has decided that it doesn't want to play nice
 anymore :-(
 
 I plug the power supply and battery in and, if the laptop is turned on,
the
 charging light comes on and the power icon shows charging but the battery
 never makes it beyond about 58%. Unplug external power and the battery
 starts discharging. I get about 1h20m or so out of it which is about
right
 for a half charge given the age of the battery.
 
 However, things get weirder when the laptop is turned off. With the
laptop
 plugged in, initially the power light goes green and the battery light
goes
 orange (as normal). However, after a while the battery light turns off
 altogether (it SHOULD go green when the battery is charged) ... If I take
 the battery pack out and plug it back in again, the orange charge light
 comes back on for a while before going out altogether again.
 
 All this started quite suddenly ... it was all working OK then I ran the
 battery all the way down on a flight from Rome to Tokyo (on an Alitalia
767
 of all things ... don't get me started ...). These problems started the
 next time I plugged it in (actually thats not quite true, the first time
I
 plugged it in, instead of the battery light coming on, the power light
 flashed orange indicating a power problem) ...
 
 Anyone else seen such symptoms or have any ideas?
 
 
 *sigh* I wish I found out this thing was having problems before I left
 Tokyo (the next time I plugged it in after the flight was in Australia)
...
 I could have gotten a nice replacement when I went to Akihabara!
 
 
 - Raymond
 
 P.S. Yes, I'm back! Hopefully I'll be a little more active on the list
than
 I have been for the past few months!

Re: [LIB] BIOs Hibernation with XP Pro

Answers to your questions:

(1) No, you can not. XP has its own hibernation methods.
(2) Yes. Once you turn on the hibernation on XP, you can config your power
button as hibernation.
(3) If you're using XP hibernation, it will save into file system. XP will
reserve that space for you. If you intend to use BIOS hibernation, it's
maybe too late for you. BIOS hibernation always writes to the disc location
starts with cylinder number 1024 no matter how you partition your disc which
means if ever there is a BIOS hibernation (like when battery is almost
drained), you data near that location will be overwritten.

Subject: [LIB] BIOs Hibernation with XP Pro

Hi,

I've just upgraded my 110CT to 64MB RAM and a 40GB HDD. Having installed
XP Pro with multiple partitions (each partition has a different purpose,
System, Documents, Games, etc.) i'm wanting to configure the system for
BIOS hibernation. Basically I like the idea of pressing the power switch
and hibernating my machine that I could do with the 98SE installation
that I had previously. I'm not using EZ-BIOS or anything like it as XP
sees the entire disk with no problem.

My questions are :

1)  Can I get BIOS hibernation to work with XP?
2)  Can I get the power switch to hibernate my system?
3)  Where should I reserve disk space for the hibernation partition?

I have a copy of Partition Magic 7 running on the machine, it's helped
to create the partition layout that I have.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Kind regards,

Nick Rees.

Assume you have ACPI enabled and properly updated BIOS (version 8.0 or
later) before install XP. Go to control panel \ Power options. Make sure
hibernation is turned on in Hibernate page. Then go to Advanced page, you
can configure what action to take when you press power button or close the
lid.

Hi, thanks for your reply Lawrence.

I was going to ask about the BIOS hibernation, as I left it running for
a few hours and when I returned it had hibernated itself using the BIOS
method.

How can I configure the power button as the hibernation trigger? There
doesn't appear to be the usual power button/close lid options that i've
seen previously.

I know XP saves to a file on the root of C when it hibernates, seen that
happen before. I have also reserved some space at the 1024 cylinder
boundary in case of BIOS hibernation so I don't lose any data. As i've
got 64MB i've actually reserved 100MB just in case. It's a 40GB disk,
100MB is nothing . . .

When you install from a different machine, the HAL contains the drivers and

other necessary hardware profiles for the machine. They are not

partition the L1's HDD
put the install files on the L1 HDD 2nd partition,
then install on the L1 (using the L1 HDD)

One more detail missing?
To do this, I'd need to put the install files on FAT32 partitions, rather

Hi folks,

I have a battery question.  I remember reading somewhere (it could have
been on the list, some years ago) that the battery in the Libretto (I
think it was the 50CT) acted as a surge protector of sorts!?  And, that
it was not advisable to run the unity with the battery unplugged, only
on external power.  I would like to lengthen the life of my battery on a
100CT, and I guess one way of doing that is to take the battery out when
I am using power.  Does anyone have any advice or warnings for me?

Thanks,

Dion

I'm looking for a small wireless keyboard with
integrated pointing device.

I'd prefer RF wireless over IR.

I know there are many available, but they aren't very
small.

The ideal size is one that is basically just a full
size keyboard or slightly smaller without the numeric
pad.

It is primarily for the passenger in a car to use.
The Libretto is mounted on the dash, generally running
Street Atlas with the GPS.

Thanks!

Re: [LIB] L1 Scrub

Subject: Re: [LIB] L1 Scrub

fdisk /mbr method is a much easier and safe way to clean up the partition
sectors in a HDD. Of course, the DEBUG is a handy tool but you need to put a
few lines of assembly code to call BIOS INT13 to wipe out the master boot
sector. I can't believe you still remember how to do it, David. Last time I
did it, I had to open my dusty DOS book:)

As for boot from CD-ROM, it requires BIOS support. Not sure what is support
in L1 BIOS. I'll just hook up a 2.5 to 3.5 converter and copy all the XP
files from another computer to the HDD and run setup from HDD directly.

If it is really a bootsector virus, you can boot from a floppy and type:
fdisk /mbr

I used debug to write zeroes to the boot sector.
It's gone :)

Else you can copy win CD on your disk using DOS and a CD driver, that's
10 times quicker than copying win98 to support the CD (such things is
ony 1 floppy disk).

Will that work for a USB CDROM?

Subject: Re: [LIB] USB Card

L100/110's IDE channel is Enhanced IDE only. Only a little better than
L50/70's regular ATA. However, L100/100's CardBus slots is connected to its
internal PCI bus which is capable of 132 MBytes/sec. But, the Toshiba
PCMCIA/CardBus controller used in L100/110 does not support DMA. Hence the
limiting factor on how fast a USB 2.0 card can move is the processor speed.

Subject: Re: [LIB] USB Card

From: Paul Bristow [EMAIL PROTECTED]

I have a USB2 card working on my L100 under Linux.  You definately do not
need to use the DC adapter for low-power USB 1.1 devices.  I have no idea
what speed I get as I do not actually own any USB2 peripherals.

A while back I did a bit of research on various kinds of transfer rates, and
came up with this list of theoretical rates depending on a systems
components:

* Ultra DMA ATA/33 hard disk drive  264Mbps (33MB/s)
* Ultra DMA ATA/66 hard disk drive  528Mbps (66MB/s)
* Ultra DMA ATA/100 hard disk drive  800Mbps (100MB/s)
* USB 1.1, supporting 127 devices up to 12 Mbps (1.5MB/s)
* USB 2.0, supporting 127 devices up to 480Mbps (60MB/s)
* Firewire IEEE-1394, supporting 63 devices up to 400Mbps (50MB/s)

So if anyone knows the limitations of bus speeds for the different Libs,
maybe we can determine if, say a Lib o/c to 266MHz would be able to perform
transfers faster with a USB 2.0 interface over USB 1.1.

I would guess the Libs use ATA/33 HDDs, but Ultra DMA?  I don't know enough
about HDD specs.

Hi folks,

I have a battery question.  I remember reading somewhere (it could have
been on the list, some years ago) that the battery in the Libretto (I
think it was the 50CT) acted as a surge protector of sorts!?  And, that
it was not advisable to run the unity with the battery unplugged, only
on external power.  I would like to lengthen the life of my battery on a
100CT, and I guess one way of doing that is to take the battery out when
I am using power.  Does anyone have any advice or warnings for me?

Thanks,

Dion

You're correct about CardBus not supported in L50 or L70. Only a handful of
wireless cards are CardBus (those based on TI's 22mbps chip). Any WiFi card
will do. It's just the matter of personal preference and how much you want
to pay. Some are better than others but difference is small. I saw DLink is
dumping its old DWL-650 (not to be confused with the new CardBus version
DWL-650+) at either Amazon or But.com for $14.99 after rebate. I have both
DWL-650 and DWL-650+ and they worked great on my L100. However, I heard
DWL-650 needs 3.3v power and may not work with L50.

To use wireless, you will need either one of the following:

as well as wireless access point
(2) a wireless access point that connect to your existing LAN
(3) another wireless card in another computer so that both can connect in

Make sure all your wireless products are 802.11b standard compliant so they
can talk to each other. There are also 802.11a and soon 802.11g products.

A Wireless Access Point can serve multiple wireless clients (up to 253) and
bridge them to the wired LAN the WAP connects to. A wireless router is
essentially a wired router plus WAP. A WAP is useful when you already have a
wired LAN setup. Otherwise, a wireless router is what most people buy and in
most time it actually costs less than WAP alone.

If you have the bigger port replicator, maibe it is worth to try those small
cheap USB mini-hubs. I use one to duplicate the single USB port of my L110
replicator. I've seen nice mini-hubs up to 4 ports with no power supply
requirement. The bigger ones require power supply.

Subject: Help with L100 Cardbus USB 2.0 card

Hi all,

I noticed in a recent post that the L100CT can handle Cardbus?  I
recently tried a Chronos PCMCIA Cardbus card with two USB 2.0 slots on
the side (these would be perfect to run my external CD re-writer and
connect my digital camera!)  However, the card did not seem to be
detected on my L100CT running Win98 SE at all!  However, when I inserted
it into my Sony Vaio PIII 700Mhz laptop (running XP (Xtra Problems...)
Professional) it picked it up right away and asked for the device
driver.  In the Win98 Libretto it did not even register that a card was
inserted.

Has anybody got any ideas?  Is it the Lib 100, or is it a Win 98
problem?  I would love any help since I would love to use this card, it
is dirt cheap at R420 (South African Rand to dollar it is about 40
dollars or so for the card).

Thanks for any help.

Regards,

Dion

To dual boot, you have to install OSes on separate partitions or disks. It

Win2K runs like a pig on 32MB too. First upgrade to 64MB on your L100. Then,
install Win2k not WinXP. Your processor is too slow for XP (P2-300MHz
minimum) even if you have enough memory. Besides, win2k with the latest
service pack (SP3) is more stable than XP.

Also, make sure your L100 has latest BIOS (8.00 or later) before you install
win2000.

As already discussed before, the BIOS hibernation takes priority over
Win2000 or WinXP's hibernation. Let say if you let your Lib standby for a
long time that battery running low to a critical level, the BIOS hibernation
procedure will take place no matter what you tell your XP or 2000 to do.
When this happens, your data located after 8GB boundary will be wiped out.
It's better be safe than sorry.

 An added benefit is that THERE IS NO MORE
PROBLEM WITH THE 8 GIG HARD DRIVE LIMIT!  XP sees the whole drive and so
do Norton  Systemworks 2003 and PM8.  XP makes its own 64k file for
suspend, so no more worries about leaving a gap after 8 gig on the
drive, either.  (I've installed a 40 gigger.)

 message in a Easy CD Creator error log that said:

 . Make sure that the CD recorder and the hard drive
 . are both configured to allow disconnect.  Refer to
 . the property sheet for your CD recorder and your
 . hard drive. You can view these property sheets by
 . opening System from the Control Panel and selecting
 . Device Manager.

 Checking in the hard drive properties in Device Manager for the drives in
 both my L70 and L50, the 'Disconnect' option is grayed out.

 Does anyone know if this is common with most HDDs in Libbys, or notebooks
in
 general?

 Ya but by 'digital CD audio' is it referring to the digital audio output
on
 the CD-ROM drive (the 2 pin connector that often appears next to the 4 pin
 analog audio connector) or is it referring to the piping of the audio data
 through the IDE cable?

 It refers to piping the audio data through IDE cable. Try this on your
desktop: enable the digital audio and either mute the CD audio channel on
your sound card or detach the CD audio cable. Play a music CD, you will
still hear your CD music-through the  wave channel of your sound card.

 It's called digital CD Audio. Most of today's CD-ROM supports digital
audio
 through IDE bus. CD Audio cable is a thing of past.

 I'm guessing that if a CD-ROM drive supports digital audio extraction,
then
 it's just a matter of having audio CD player software that can access the
 disk via the IDE bus.  My old EXP CD-ROM drive could extract digital audio
 (or at least it used to :-/), but I guess I was never able to get CDs to
 play because the software I was using was looking for the old analog audio
 input.

 When I first got my L50 and the EXP CD-ROM drive, I tried the Windows CD
 player, MusicMatch, Media Player, WinAmp and a bunch of other CD software,
 and gave up.  I guess Nero must be the first software I've used on a Lib
 that actually can play CDs via the IDE bus.

 Subject: CD Audio coming through speaker!

 I can't believe it, nor figure it out.  I've been playing with my Nero CD
 burning software, and converting some tracks from CDs into MP3s to store
on
 my L70s HDD.

 After you select 'Save track', a window pops up with the names of the
tracks
 it finds on the CD.  Then when you click a button to accept that CD info,
a
 window pops up with all the tracks ready to convert.  You can set all your
 conversion preferences here.

 But something I noticed is a bunch of CD player style control buttons.  So
I
 clicked the 'play' button, and lo and behold, music came out of my speaker
 from the CD!

 I was always under the impression that the OPL3-SAx chip on the L50/70s
 couldn't play music CDs through the speaker.  Is this yet another
something
 I've spaced out on all these years?  Or might it have something to do with
 this HP M820E SCSI CD-ROM drive and the Nero extraction software?

 Hi,
 
  Never had any trouble with my Win2000 installation. My L100 works in
  standby/resume mode all the time.
 
 I was using the original Windows95 that came with the Libretto.

 Presumably as someone else mentioned having the same problem with
 Linux, there must be a BIOS problem which Win2000 presumably avoids
 by doing things itself...


When I was on Win95, hibernation or standby never really worked well. 90% of
the time ends up with a hard reset. When I moved to Win98 with ACPI support,
it gets better but still not dependable.

 Has anyone ever found a utility than lets the libretto suspend then
 when the battery level gets low enough allows it to hibernate? Kind
 of using the best of both worlds?

 John

This is the default mode of any model of Libretto if you just suspend the
libretto. The hibernation will be automatically called up when battery is
below certain margin. Of course, the exact execution depends on models of
Libretto and versions of windows.

 I don't use the hibernate option very much, so this may well be a
 problem which has always existed - but I just tried it in order to
 check my HD partitioning to make sure nothing valuable is being
 over-written, and it didn't start up properly...
 
 What I did was boot Windows and select 'suspend', the familair

 turned off normally.
 
 Then when I re-activated it, the disk filling up image appeared as
 normal, then the screen went blank, and nothing
 
 I had to kill the power with the lid button, after which it did a
 cold start without so much as a scan of the disk...
 
 I tried again after un-docking from the EPR, and it worked normally.
 
 Anyone else come across this before? I had no USB or PCMCIA
 devices in the EPR for the test.

 Subject: Desktop hard drives (Warning: minimal [LIB]retto content)

 Hi all!

 OK this has minimal libretto content but I'm getting desperate and you lot
 seem pretty smart ... so here goes.

 I've been caught not once, not twice but 4 times by the infamous IBM
 DeskStar 75GXP bug. I had 2 30 gig drives die on me, sent them away,
almost
 3 months later I got 2 45 gig 75GXP drives back from IBM which have now,
 barely 3 months on, died of the same cause (indicated 3 or 4 loud rasping
 sounds followed by silence then a few more times then the computer locking
 solid when accessing certain parts of the hard drive).

No kidding. That's why there is a class action law suit against IBM on
75GXP. And also why IBM now decided to get out of hard disk business.


 Until now, I've had almost perfect faith in IBM hard drives but this has
 shaken my faith to its foundations. What are you people's recommendations
 regarding IDE drives from other manufacturers that are dependable and
 relatively quick, based on your experiences? I'm looking for
 recommendations for 7200RPM ATA100 or better hard drives in the 40-60GB
 range. I'd also be interested in experiences with companies that give
 pretty good warranty service (ie. it doesn't take them 3 months to replace
 a pair of hard drives!).

I still have two IBM disks on my two desktops. One is the first generation
7200 rpm DeskStar 10GB. Still running strong after about 4 years and a new
60GXP. Some say 60GXP does not share the problem with 75GXP. Some say
otherwise. Keep my fingers crossed on this one.

I've a Maxtor 20GB 7200 rpm disk died couple months ago after installed it
for only 2 years. Its warranty service is pretty good. I just went to
Maxtor's web site, put in the serial no and fill out a form and get a
replacement in weeks.

So, it leaves only two brands, Seagate and Western Digital which I haven't
used them for years.

The major difference is the internal design. 50 and 70 are basically 486
architecture while 100 are Pentium class architecture. This can be show in
many cases:

(1) When put in standby or suspend mode, L50/70 will drain the battery in
couple of hours while on L100, it is almost the same as shutdown or
hibernation.

(2) L50/70 only has ISA bus so it won't support 32-bit card bus and USB
interface. L100 has modern PCI bus.

 I am still working on my *(^% 70CT and its rebooting problem.
 Basically I am thinking of selling it as spare parts and getting a 100
 or 110CT. I was wondering- what are the main differances besides
 the 70 and 100/110 besides things like the cardbus enabled
 pcmcia, larger screen, more memory and faster microprocessor?
 Like- what are the differances between the power supplies used by
 each? I saw from the specs they use the same voltage and current
 but do the have differant jacks and/or polarity?  Does the 100/110
 use the same floppy drive as the 70? I understand either the 100 or
 the 110 has a 8 mm hard drive which is it and can a 9.5 mm hard
 drive be made to fit? Will the port expander work from the 70 to
 100/110? Basically I'm thinking of getting a barebones 100/100CT
 and using everything from my 70CT. Thanks in advance...

 Hi Tom

 Thanks for the info. I was doing a search for third party power supplies
and
 such for the 100/110 and didn't find much. I found a bunch for the 50/70
 though. Has anyone tried replacing the power jack in the 100/110 to match
 the 50/70? Cost about 2 dollars and the 50/70 jack is availible at Mouser
 Electronics.

Unlike the power plug for L50/70,  you can not buy the power plug for L100
anywhere else. It's a Toshiba proprietary plug.

 I powered L110 off during the OS selection menu and it hibernated OK.
 Looks like I am safe, but to be sure I think, I will have to fill up both
 partitions, hibernate, and run scandisk. I still have doubts about the
crash of
 the old L100. I had the largest possible first partition with Win98 and
second
 partition with XP. After hibernation XP was dead. But shouldn't the
hibernation
 data be written in the end of the first partition, not in the beginning of
the
 second one? Or may be my first partition was a little smaller and second
one
 started a little earlier?


Sounds like you misunderstand how Lib BIOS hibernation works. It writes data
to a specific location (specifically a specific cylinder number) in the disk
no matter how the disk is partitioned. When create a partition that includes
that location, the BIOS hibernation will overwrite that partition data.

 this just because its not really designed for it or what?

 Paul

I remember somewhere I read that these wireless cards are designed to take
the lower 3.3v offered by CardBus slot. Maybe operates at 5V in L50 causes
those overheating. My Dlink wireless card on my L100 never really heats up
and consumes very little power for normal internet surfing.

 There have been advances in technology since the 'umble yet puissant L50

 Has anyone successfully investigated replacing the cells of the standard

 Hello to all,

   I plan on buying a Lib 50 on Ebay. The following is listed:
 **
  The only problem with the unit, as with all Libretto 50CT's,
 is the CMOS only charges when the unit is powered on, so it looses time
 when left powered off for too long (More then 10
 days). I do have a replacement CMOS battery (which I will include),
 that will minimize the time loss problem but it requires
 opening the case of the 50CT too install it (Which I havn't done).
 **

   Is this true? If so, how hard is it to change the battery? Can this
 be a cause for another problem? Thank you.


This is true for Libretto 50, 70 , 100 and 110. Just make sure you use it
frequently. It's won't be a problem at all. After all, why you spend money
on something you don't really use.

  My comparison isn't a straight one, however - L110 with 64MB memory:-
 
  -- Win'98 on 4.3GB HDD - from memory (timed it once but can't find the
  original post) - something like 2 minutes and a few odd seconds (2:06
rings
  a bell)
 
  -- Win'2K on 30GB HDD - 90 seconds
 
  Win'2K shuts down a hell of a lot faster than '98 (and more reliably,
too).

 After seeing this post about timing shutdown of Win2K on a L100 I ran the
same
 timings on my L110 with Win2K as was done above with Win98  Win2K. I
found that
 my unit (with the original 4.3G HD and 64mb memory) was up and running in
1:25
 seconds and shut down in 15 seconds! I have only had the L110 for a few
weeks
 and am familiar with the Win2K OS from using it on my desktop but I don't
see a
 lot of difference in its speed and facility on the Libretto. Someone
mentioned
 some sites where one can find info about trimming the Win2K OS (and I
would like
 to know more about this) but I can't imagine that it would work that much
more
 efficiently in doing so? Why would 64mb's of memory work with Win2K more
 effectively in a L110 than a L100 - the smaller HD shouldn't have much of
an
 influence at least for booting up - or does it?


Shutdown time heavily depends on what kind of software or driver installed.
And also L110 is running at 233MHz while a stock L100 is running at 166MHz.

 Does W2000 have a utility like MSCONFIG in W98?  I've used that a lot to
 disable all the many applications that insist on setting themselves to
load
 at boot.  You end up with dozens of little icons in the system tray on the
 right end of the status bar that suck the life out of the system
resources.

Nope. The thing I mentioned are services that usually does not display
anything and you need to use Service Control Panel to disable them.

 Also, there must be a place in W2000 where the system resources are
 displayed immediately following a boot to the desktop.  IN W98, you can
 right click My Computer, and go to the Performance tab.


Much easier than Win98. Just right click on task bar bring up the Task
Manager. It shows all the information there. 100 times more useful than
anyhting you can find in Win98.

Win98 also suffers from the 64 KB limit on system GDI resource and USER
resource (64KB for GDI and 64KB for USER in Win98. Win95 only have 64KB
total for both USER and GDI). A buggy software can easily cause these
resource to leak and when all the 64KB are used up, system crashed without

 Subject: renaming Program Files folder [LIB]

 I now have Win'2K up and running on the new 30GB HDD in my L110.

 I'm thinking about renaming Program Files to PRGFILES before I go
 further and start installing non-OE programs.

 Several web sites document the registry and related nitty-gritty, but
others
 say it's better not to bother, citing that some (none MICROS~1 - LOL)
 programs may be hard-coded to look for PROGRA~1.

 Anybody else considered (or actually done) this?


A lot of system files are under Program Files folder. It's not a good idea
to rename it after installation. You will lose a lot of functionalities.

 A lot of system files are under Program Files folder.

 I don't understand this - what functionality would be lost, and why?

A lot of shared system components are located in this folder. These
components are usually registered in the registry. Unless you have tools to
fix all those registry locations that point to this folder, you will have
problems sooner or late. Components like OE, IE, ODBC drivers and OLEDB
drivers used by various applications are located here. Usually you won't
notice any problem immediately. But eventually you'll.

This is the primary reason why Microsoft insists you to install dual boot
Windows OS in two different partitions because otherwise components for
different OSs will override each other in Program Files folder. I learnt it
hard way.

 expanded port replicators..$50 plus UPS ground at cost. These units
also
 have the AC power supplya pretty good deal! Email me offlist for the

Man! $50 - $19(for which Toshiba sold them a few months back) = $31

  (1) What is better for the Libretto in terms of machine/battery life
span
  when it is not used and shut down (e. g. overnight): if I leave the AC
  connected (two LEDS lighting), or if I isolate it from all current (no
LED
  lights)?

   Machine, doesn't matter.  Battery, continous charging of systems is not
 recommended.  Better to let it sit hibernated to disk, suspended to RAM
(will
 use energy) or simply off overnight unless you need a full charge at the
 beginning of the day.

   The Libretto batteries and charging system isn't as smart as the latest
 designs, unfortunatly.

   Also, continously charging and dischargin within a narrow range will
reduce
 battery lifepsans vs. full discharges and recharges.


I beg the differ. Libretto batteries are the same type of battery used in
most new laptops. It's Li-ion cell. One thing that separates Li-ion battery
with other rechargeable battery is that Li-ion battery does not suffer
either over-charge (built-in circuit to prevent that) or memory effect. My
third battery is on AC 24/7. It has been that way for almost two years now
and still going strong. My other two batteries failed in less than two years
because I didn't do so. The Libretto will keep drain the battery in a rate
of 8% per day even when shutdown.

 when it is not used and shut down (e. g. overnight): if I leave the AC

Leave it on AC so the Li-ion battery get fully charged all the time. If you
don't, the battery will lose its charge in a week. A full recharge eats one
of its limited recharge cycles (500 to 1000).


 (2) There are 2-3 pinkish-colored vertical pixel columns on the left edge
of
 the screen. Is this a permanent fault of the screen (the machine is 4
years
 old), or something can be done with it?

I've one vertical columns changing color if I press on it. The LCD connector
at the edge might have worn out. I don't think it worth the risk to open up
the LCD screen to fix it.


 (3) The machine _sometimes_ locks up when coming back from hibernation.
The
 screen remains black with the cursor blinking in the left upper quarter of
 the screen. The only way to come out of this is to push the reset button.
 This only happens sometimes, with no obvious reason. Is there any
experience
 with this? (I realize from recent posts that suspend/hibernate is a
 less-than-obvious feature of the Librettos.)

This happens to me most of the time when restore from hibernation in Win98.
I since moved to Win2k and use standby all the time. And it never fails on
me.


 (4) My machine has BIOS 7.30, and I downloaded the 8.10 version. Is it
 worthwhile to replace it? Anything particular to watch out when doing a
BIOS
 update? Can I save/restore the previous one in case something fails? Can
it
 be done safely on a fully installed machine, or better on a virgin one?

You will need a 720k floppy disk and boot from floppy to do the BIOS
upgrade. You can't upgrade from hard disk. And if you're not intended to
install Win2000, you don't really need the new BIOS. Everytime you upgrade
any BIOS, you run the risk of failure and trash the whole computer useless.
Of course the risk is very small but it is still possible. It doesn't matter
it's a new or fully loaded one.


 (5) Is there an Email address where Toshiba service engineers would answer
 tech questions? (Guarantee is over.)

This list the only email address you need. I don't think the support
engineers in Toshiba even know what Libretto is any more.

in my overclocked L50 after a pile of activity the card never got that hot!

It will be a little bit slow on stock L100. I overclocked it to 200 MHz and

 If you're referring to the CPU idling code in Win2k, ya I know about that
 ... I've not put a CPU idling program on the L100 yet so it'll be
 interesting to see what effect it'll have ... I was just curious because
 from what I was able to gather, the L50 would have gone into thermal
 shutdown before it got as hot as this L100 did ...

 I'll be booting Win98SE, Win2k and Red Hat 7.2 on this laptop, it'll be
 interesting to see the differences!

If you're using Win98, you need download Toshiba's lil utility that uploads

works fine. However, the documentation comes with my EPR suggest that I
should shutdown before docking/undocking the EPR to avoid the potential

 Subject: Hot docking or not ...

 I'm having a few headaches regarding hot docking of the L100 to and from
the advanced port replicator. I found that I MUST warm or cold dock the
libby but I MUST hot or cold undock it.

 To dock the L100 I need to either shut it down or suspend or hibernate
first, then dock, then resume otherwise it doesn't detect the APR (but it
squeals at me if I remove it). Power connects though so I'm sure its docked
right as far as hardware goes.

 To undock, I need to either shut down or go startundock, let it do its
job (which apparently also turns off the APR as the 'eject your computer
now' screen just flashes up then goes away) then undock. Curiously, after
this operation it recons it has 3 PCMCIA slots (normaly when docked it
recons it has 4 and when powered up from undocked state it recons it has 2).
If I suspend/hibernate before undocking, undock then resume, the computer
never makes it out of suspend/hibernation and requires a hard reset.


 Is this consistent with anyone else's observations? Anyone managed to do a
proper hot-dock or warm-undock operation with this laptop? It just seems a
little inconsistent that you MUST do it hot one way and you MUST do it warm
the other ...

 Subject: Inactive PCMCIA slot on the L100 advanced port replicator?

 Has anyone else noticed something a bit weird with the PCMCIA slot on the
LEFT hand side of the APR for the L100 (marked slot 3 on the casing)? I
understand its only a type I/II as opposed to the I/II/III slots on the
right hand side of the L100 and the APR but for some weird reason whenever I
plug a card into that left slot, Windows crashes! When I have a card in
there during boot time, Windows detects the card but can't start it and when
I try to stop it, Windows crashes again. Those same cards are fine plugging
into either of the Libby's internal slots or the APR's right hand PCMCIA
slot ...

Most email viruses that disguise itself as JPG is just exploiting one
Windows Explore feature: hiding file extensions of known file types. So a
virus named vir.jpg.exe or something similar will show up in your email as
vir.jpg instead. If you look carefully, the icon is different. Always
uncheck the above option in Explorer's Folder Option menu and you will never
be fooled again.

You can embed any binary code into a image file but it will never get
executed unless you also have some special software designed to extract them
and execute them.

 The jpg is a compression from not just an ext. when you execute the JPG
 it decompresses..

Yes, jpeg is an image compression method and .jpg is the extension commonly
given to the jpeg compressed files. The decompress of the jpeg file only
happens with the help of JPeg capable programs like browser and photo
editing software. You do not execute the jpeg file because you can't.
However, it is possible for someone to rename an executable file into
something like vir.jpg or vir.bmp. And in normal cause, this will not cause
any problem in Windows as Windows will check file extension and load the
photo editing software to load the file and display some error message since
it is not a jpeg file. However, in the native Windows API calls, you can let
Windows execute any file regardless the file extension as long as the format
of the file is that of the windows executable file (or called PE format).
This can only be done through 3rd party software, however. Maybe your IRC
software have this feature to execute those files if instructed.

 Absolutely not.

 The L100 and presumably the 110 have markedly different behaviors of the
 power button than the L50 and presumably the L70.

 The L50 only seems to cause a hibernate no matter how long you press it,
IF
 it is not set in BIOS to boot mode

 The L100, even IF it is set to hibernate, WILL power down the machine if
the
 power button is pressed long enough ( 3 sec seems about right ). A very
 sensible change in my opinion.


It should be 4 seconds. All new computers require to support forced power
down if you press power button more than 4 seconds. Remember that's a forced
power down which means nothing get saved before it goes down. Kind of
helpful when machine crashes.

Because for whatever reason (like thermo shutdown or low battery shutdown),
the Libretto's built-in hibernation may kick in before win2000 get a chance
to hibernate. This will overwrite whatever data in that location. For the

 From: Chris Kalos [EMAIL PROTECTED]
 Subject: Partition locations?

 I've got a 12GB (or is it 20?) drive in my L110.  Where exactly do I set
 the partitions to leave room for hibernation?

Use your lib to create the primary parition using DOS and FDISK. It will
create a maximum partition around 8GB. Do not use Win2k to create the
primary parition or partition it outside of Lib. Leave 100 to 200 MB after
the primary partition and you can create the second parition on rest of the
disk. I use Win2000's disk manager to create a partition of 200MB after the
primary partition and leave it unformatted. Then I create another partition
that takes the rest of the disk space and format it.


 Also, is there a way under Win2000 to merge the two resulting partitions
 into a single drive?

Yes, you can use Win2000's disk manager to mount any volume(partition) into
another volume's empty folder.

 the Orange Micro PMCIA 2.0 USB card won't work with my L70 so I'm thinking

Subject: Re: [LIB] P-330 USB connection

I think your problem is related to your drivers rather than USB speed. The
driver that controls your USB to parallel port and your printer driver
capable of using such adapter (a lot of old printer drivers don't support
this).

 Subject: P-330 USB connection

 So, does anyone out there have any ideas about
 how to slow down a USB connection?  I'm trying
 to use this printer with my Libretto 1100, which
 only does USB, to take advantage of the Smart Card
 reader (and the fact that it's the 1100 that has
 all my photo software on it).  I'll continue
 pursuing with Olympus, of course, but I suspect
 there are more experts out here.

 With the default settings for the printer driver
 and the USB-to-parallel cable driver, I get no
 indication that the printer is receiving any data
 from the computer.  Next, I've tried modifying
 the driver settings for the cable to disable bidirectional
 communications, and to really really long transmission
 timeouts.

 After this change, I do get activity from the printer --
 the printing light blinks really optimistically, and
 it sounds like the printing process starts (the paper
 starts its printing process, but no ink is deposited).
 Then after a couple of minutes I get an error indicating
 that the printer is out of paper.  Fascinating, captain,
 since I've just reloaded all the paper.

 Now, I'm about at the point of running the printer to my
 L110 which has native parallel capabilities, and doing
 something annoying like using IrDA to transfer pictures
 between the machines -- but if anyone has any ideas about
 this, I'd be much obliged.

 My Libretto doesn't have a parallel port, so I bought a USB-to-parallel

 try
 to print an image, there's no sign of activity on the printer (errors,
 printing or otherwise), and I keep getting the Olympus P-330 Language
 Monitor popping up and then disappearing, without ever showing any
 progress.  The documentation is really really awful (I am a sys admin by
 profession, so I read a lot of doc, and the stuff that came with this
 printer is awful even for computer documentation).  How do I
 troubleshoot
 this?

 Actually if memory serves correct, thats not *quite* accurate ... Win95B
has full USB support however those cameras need whats called USB Storage
Class drivers - it lets Windows mount USB devices as removable hard drives.
Win95C(?) actually DOES have rudimentary support for this IIRC.

Win95 OSR2 with USB supplement only have a very limited support for USB. If
you look at the boxes of most USB products, they all require at least win98.
The fact is many USB devices do not work in any versions of Win95.

  While trying to install a new hard drive in my L50, I somehow
 messed up my BIOS to the point that I now cannot boot up or even get an A
 prompt with either the old or new drive ( which was working well).
  It seems my only hope is to reinstall the BIOS via the F12
method,
 but this calls for a low density formatted disk. I formatted a 1.44MB disk
 at 720K and copied the appropriate (I think) files to it, but could not
get
 the Libretto to recognize it.
  Any suggestions?

 The only thing that has slowed down the start up is my loading of McAfee

 make another partition of this or what.  Can you 'talk' me through the

The only way to create the second partition of your 10GB HDD is using
WinXP/2000's Disk Management tools. Create a partition of size 100 MB or
more and leave it unformatted. Then, create another one that take the rest
of the space on the HDD and format it.

I'm currently running on Win2000 Pro on my overclocked L100CT.  I am
reluctant to upgrade to WinXP because I heard its a memory hog and CPU power
hog. How you feel the XP running on your L110 when you open menus and load
something like MS Office?

As far as hibernation goes, leave 100mb or so at the end of your current
partition and format the rest of them.

 Subject: Re: Windows XP - Am I the first

 Just to let you know that I have successfully installed XP in a Libretto
 110CT - no problems at all - a lot faster than Windows 98 and a lovely
 desktop.  I have also done this on my 'big' laptop and this, too, was
easy.
 The only difficuly I had was making the network cards work.  The 'big'
 laptop needed a new one (! - no updated drivers for my old one) and
although
 PSION have sent me (free of charge through the post) W2000 drivers for the
 Combined 56 / 10-100 IT card (network and modem) in the Libretto only the
 modem part has successfully updated.  The hairy light bulb has gone,
 unfortunately, but XP has battery management facilities.  Everything else
 Toshiba works, even the 'light' for the caps lock.

 I also upgraded the HDD to 10GB.  I used Drive Copy to copy the original
 Win98 'image' and then copied this to the new HDD (which was FDISKed and
 FORMATted on the Lib110CT) so the hibernation partition is the the correct
 place.  Because I FDISKed on the 110 the HDD is only seen as 8.4GB.
 However, XP sees the rest.Although this is the case I don't know what
to
 do with the rest of the unallocated space as the Lib BIOS will have put
the
 hibernation partition at the end of the 8.4 (this does not show as any
space
 on XP computer management window).  Any ideas out there?  I suppose its
the
 same as W2000 so can any one with any experiecne of this advise?


 Best wishes

 George

 Virus software is a great way to suck the performance out of your system.

That is very true. Sometimes up to 10 times slower. That's why I never use
any AV software.

 I simply use eudora, and don't open unexpected attachments.
 When you don't run the MS virus autoinstaller mail clients, life gets a
lot
 simpler.
 According to today's roundup, I've got some 1700+ attached files
 probably  half are viruses.
 One of these days, I'll get around to deleting them, but it's hardly worth
 the effort.

It doesn't matter what email client you use. The only advantage you get from
non-Outlook email client is that if you did get infected you won't help
virus to spread to others provided you properly disabled the OL/OE to send
emails. It always comes down to the user who clicks to open the attachment.
So far, there aren't any email virus that will automatically infect you when
you simply read the mail without open the attachment. Why people keep
opening the attachment w/o caution is beyond me.

 Actually, depending on the security settings you've got (and to be honest,
you DO have to be a little silly to have them set so low for this to happen
BUT there are exploits out there that'll let malicious code lower your
security level without you knowing it), OE CAN be infected by just opening
the email because of the integration of HTML and ActiveX and whatnot. Also,
in OE you can set it to open attachments by SINGLE clicking on the icon
(instead of DOUBLE clicking). Once thats done it becomes all too instinctive
to just open attachments unfortunately ...


Like I said, so far there is no HTML scripting virus yet. And ActiveX is
nothing to conern about because if your ActiveX is not digitally signed (you
have to prove your identity to get a digital signature from company likw
VeriSign), it won't be activated automatically unless you're stupid enough
to lower your setting to allow this. Single Click or double click is not the
point, you still have to click it. And BTW, OE does not offer attachment as
icon. Outlook does.

 My Toshiba 30 Gb drive just arrived in the mail. I've taken the
the time to
 review as much of the previous posts on the hibernation/partition

 Should be able to get this to work.

 Question. From what I can see the (hardware?) hibernation is
initiated by a
 bios call to int 15. Has anyone written a TSR (terminate and stay
resident)
 to capture this call?

 Once control on the bios call is captured, one could redirect it
toour
 hibernation code which could tell the libretto to write where ever
we pleased.

 I've attacthed a list a INT15 bios calls I've found in my
research.

 Subject: Hibernation INT15 Extended BIOS Call Function  TSR's

 My Toshiba 30 Gb drive just arrived in the mail. I've taken the the time
to
 review as much of the previous posts on the hibernation/partition topics.
 Should be able to get this to work.

 Question. From what I can see the (hardware?) hibernation is initiated by
a
 bios call to int 15. Has anyone written a TSR (terminate and stay
resident)
 to capture this call?

If you only run DOS or Win3.1, then you can do this w/o problem. Any 32-bit
OS will be a totally different story.

 I just picked up a 110ct from e-bay and a 32 meg memory upgrade (Kingston
 technology KTT-LBT/32)

 I followed the instruction to take off the keyboard, but when I went to
put
 the memory module in the laptop, the RTC battery was where the module
would
 go.  The memory module did not seem to lie flat on top of the battery.

 I checked the archive and see no questions on this.  I am wondering:

 1) Is this the right memory module?

This is the correct module

 2) Is this where the battery should be (or did some one do a cheesy
 replacement )?

You're right. RTC battery should no be there.

 3) Is the problem just me being a klutz?

 any help would be appreciated.

 It's the among other problems I'm wondering about.  I'm wondering if
it's
 electronically impossible to make a PC Card to interface with the existing
 70CT MB that can interface USB with the bus on the 70CT?


Common USB controls chipsets are designed with PCI interface not ISA
interface. L50/70 only has ISA interface support. You need CarBus to get PCI
interface support. I've yet to see any ISA USB adapter in desktop computers.

 Where can you get a PC card to CF adapter for $15? I was looking at some
SmartMedia to PC card adapters but they cost an arm and a leg ... or are CF
cards a lot closer to PCMICA (and hence their adapters would be a lot
cheaper)?

CD cards have the almost exact same pin layout as PCMCIA. The only
difference is physical size. So a CF/PC card adapter contains nothing but
wires that connect two connectors. SmartMedia and other flash memory cards
do not have this interface logic built in. The adapter needs to have its own
circuit to support the PCMCIA interface. That's why these adapters are much
more expensive.


 I was just looking at getting an Olympus C-200 Zoom digital camera (I
think its called the C-450 in the US) but the downside is that the only ways
to get images out of it is either through USB or SmartMedia, neither of
which is an easy proposition for the Libby.


True unless you got a L100/110.

 For that matter, how much slower IS serial compared to USB as far as
digital cameras go? Anyone got any figures for time taken?


It's 115kbps vs 12mbps. It is VERY SLOW.

 Ya but in practical terms, how often is your average digital camera able
to pump 12Mbps down the USB cable?

Believe or not, it's quite close to that.

 Sorry, batteries have its own limited life span whether you like it or
not.

 I don't think batteries would die that quickly ... certainly not overnight
like that. I had the same problem on an old Compaq LTE Lite/25 (a 386 with a
NiMH pack) ... battery was fine, accidentally ran it right down and it never
detected the pack again. The scary thing is it never detected ANY pack
again. The motherboard blew a month or so later (unrelated - I have a habit
of soldering my projects straight to the motherboards of old computers ;-)
so that solved THAT problem for me ...


Obviously you have no idea of how a Li-ion battery dies.

 Hello.

 I have a big problem with my CT100 machine.

 I probably left my CT100 powered up without power.

 Anyway, I left for some hours, then came back and my libretto was out of
 power (which is quite obvious).

 After plugging back the adaptor power, when I run it it said that BIOS had
 CRC error or something (don't remember exactly, but it did enter BIOS
 and didn't remember any of my BIOS settings).

 The problem is that now it does not see the battery - it only runs with
 the power adaptor plugged in.

 Every apm tool says that it has 83% battery and that it is running on
 external power (which is also quite obvious).

 Has anyone got any idea what may be the problem and how do I fix it?
 (buying new batteries is a very desperate measure, which I'd like to
 avoid)

 I got now my Lib 100 running with NT, including power management,

 But there ist one small disadvantage in the power management: it displays
 the remaining battery capacity but not the remaining time - does anybody
 know a way to display the remaining time?

 How 'bout going with Win XP?  Other than a few nice new features, I've
heard
 ME can be a real pain.  People XP wins on being stable.  Wonder if it

 more juice than ME?

Running XP will be too much for any Libretto. It needs P2 350MHz and 64MB as
bare minimum.

 I'd be interested in users experiences. I have tried Win2K but found it

Than, by any means stick with your 98SE. WinME is nothing but trouble.

 Subject: L110 - Win2k - 2 issues

 Hi All,

 I just upgraded my Lib110 (64MB, 30GB HD) to Win2K and I have to say that
 so far I am very impressed.  Very good driver support in general, and very
 few issues.  Much improved reliability.

 Now for the down side - I have two problems remaining.  First is that it
 won't automatically shut it self down.  I upgraded BIOS to 8.1 and made
 sure that I had installed the Toshiba Power Extensions from the Toshiba
 site, but it still hangs at the screen saying It is now safe to turn
 off your computer.  I know it's APM BIOS, but how do I make it shut off?

You have to update the BIOS before install the Win2K so that it will install
as ACPI computer rather than standard computer. There is a hack that you can
go to device manager and click the item under Computer and update its driver
to Advanced Configuration and Power Interface PC which will basically
re-install your win2k to use ACPI.


 Second, is there a Win2K driver available for the PCMCIA floppy drive?
 If so, I couldn't find it on Toshiba's site or by letting Win2K detect
 it... not a big deal since nobody uses floppies these days, but just
 thought I would check...

Libretto Win2K floppy driver is built in Win2k. It should auto detect it.
Make sure you installed Win2K SP2.

 Apparently, I need to find a way to set the RTC clock on the Libretto.
 Apparently 'date' and 'netdate' don't do this -- they just set the system
 clock. When the Libretto sleeps and them wakes up, Linux restores the time
 from the RTC (as evidenced in /proc/pci).

 Will Windows set the hardware clock? I was going to install Windows 98 as
 soon as I used my spare partition to convert my main drive to reiserfs
 (better than ext2 in case of battery failure or some other problem) ...


Even the good old DOS can do this. Find a DOS boot floppy or let Win95/98
make one for you. Boot your lib from it and set the date and time.

When the RTC battery runs out of juice, most you will see is clock been off.
I've not seen any CMOS error at all. Remember, even though your Lib is on
A/C all the time, the RTC battery does not get charged unless the machine is
on. Leave your Lib on for 24 hours, and see what happens.

 Anyone out there running Linux on a Libretto 100CT?

 Here's an interesting problem. Say I do this:

 # netdate time.mit.edu
 time.mit.edu -0.701  Fri Aug 31 11:45:27.000
 # date
 Fri Aug 31 11:45:27 PDT 2001

 That's great. Just what it's supposed to do. But if I close the lid (and
the
 Libretto thus enters suspend mode) and reopen the lid, here's what
happens:

 # date
 Mon Jan  1 05:02:43 PST 1990

 Since I plan to use the Libretto as a custom-made replacement for my Palm
Vx
 (well ... not to carry in my pocket, of course), the near-instant suspend
 and resume is very important. Does anyone else have this problem?

 The Libretto is plugged into the AC adapter the entire time, and the
battery
 is at 100% (brand new, no less). I did, however, disassemble it yesterday
 (and, of course, disconnected the RTC battery in the process). But if the
 clock battery was dead/not connected, wouldn't it give me CMOS checksum
 errors
 every time I remove power from the computer?

 Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

You need a floppy disk to complete the BIOS update. There is no other way

Re: Lib 70 clock batteries

Subject: Re: Lib 70 clock batteries

Lib does have a separate battery on the mother board for the clock. It's
only recharged when the machine is up and running. It won't recharge is
machine is turned off while AC is connected. How often do you use your Lib?

My L100 is four years old and the clock battery is still working. But I know
sooner or late this thing will fall apart. But the clock battery is the last
thing I would worry about.

 Subject: Lib 70 clock batteries

 I've been running my Lib 70 without the main battery attached and I've
 noticed that the clock in Win98 resets to midnight sometimes.  The date is
 always fine and none of the BIOS settings seem to be affected (can't
 guarantee that tho'.).  Does the machine have a seperate battery for the
 clock/CMOS which might be failing, or does the machine need the main
battery
 attached?

 Cheers,
 Jim Hudd.

 Subject: MAIN BATTERY

 Hi. I bought a new standard 1200 mAH battery for the L100 last year to
 compliment the used enhanced battery I had. I am careful to cycle the
 batteries regularly to keep them from going weak.

 Well, A month ago I noticed the standard battery would not take a charge.
 Either the orange light would stay on forever or it would go green
 immediately ( done ). Either way the Libretto had no life. OK, maybe a bad
 battery.

My old standard battery that came with my original Japanese L100 did that
for me two years ago.


 Last week my trusty used enhanced battery did pretty much the same thing,
 except the orange light would wink out twice every few seconds.
 On-off-on-off-Onnn if the battery was plugged in
 while the A/C is also plugged in.

My second battery recently did the same thing to me (standard battery bought
two years ago).


 Does the group feel I have a bad charger in the computer or 2 battery
 failures?

The life of your batteries has come to end. I bought a new enhanced battery
two weeks ago for $130 and it works. I guess battery dies in one or two
years (based on usuage) no matter how many batteries you have in hand to
rotate.


 I do have an external charger I just got, as soon as I find it I will try
 that to charge it.

No need to try. Just buy a new battery.


 Thanks

 Subject: BIOS version for Win 2000

 This is a question for those who 110CT users who have upgraded to Win
2000...

 On the Toshiba website, there is a Flash BIOS upgrade version 8.0 which is
 said to support Win 2000, and on the download page for this item, under
 Applicable Models, both the 100CT and 110CT are listed. However, in the
 Readme.txt file which comes with this download, only the 100CT is referred
 to.  So what's the story here...does the 110CT need this BIOS upgrade to
 run Win 2000 or not?


Yes. Better yet, get the latest version of 8.10 listed on Toshiba's site.
L100 and L110 are identical except for the CPU speed.
