    UPDATE: The Toshiba is back in the land of the living, there seemed to be an issue with the OS, and the issues with power seem to be a BIOS issue. No known fix ATM.

    So OS is reinstalled. prior to this, I was having issue's getting the device to shut down, it would just restart forcing a hard power down, Subsequently, I had issues getting it to boot/power up. I've set it to be able to be turn on when the power supply is inserted and the reinstall of Windows seems to have nixed that problem. Whew!

    Have spoken to Toshiba UK about the failure to honour the international warranty, they claim it is being escalated to the head office, and that they will talk with the local ASP....we shall see...

    man I remember when i was only around 9 years old, even back then, this would have been like around 1990, i was always mesmerized by Fujitsu and Toshiba laptops. I remember to this day, printing out sheets of different laptops of the time. The big thing then was cd roms and windows 95, I never did get one cause they were like between 2 and 5 thousand dollars but man they were cool. Sad to see the brand now doing this.

    Those were the days, carrying those suckers around would have put hairs on your 9 year old chest. Laptops were built like tanks back then just don't even mention the graphics.

    I had a couple of Toshiba T1200's and then I got a T1600 286 with a whooping 20Mb hard drive which was amazing at the time. Prior to that I had a couple of Zenith Super Sports if I remember correctly and they were really well made as well. I moved to PC's from BBC B's and Commodore 64 and 128's.

    Here's a blast from the past for you:



    I really like the Zenith machines I had. Those viewing angles were something else though.



    I hope you're admiring the refresh rate and the not so many shades of blue. :eek:

    and another



    I don't remember the model number but I had a 386 version of the Satellite which looked similar - no USB on mine if iirc.

    Found the the one I had



    I was a Toshiba fan boy back in the day, but that was the last Tosh I had, apart from a brief spell with a Portage a couple of years back. The T3000's were way over priced if memory serves, due to the Plasma screens. You didn't really need to use their support back then because the machines were unbelievably reliable.

    In the early 2000's I mostly owned Dell's, Fujitsu and HP's. From around 2010 all my portables have been Samsung mostly plus one MSI and one Asus.

    I found a little gold mine of old hardware pr0n while looking up my old machines, here's a link http://www.mashpedia.com/t1200xe?pagetype=search&tab=1&pagecode=CDwQAA&xn=61 enjoy.
