Toshiba Satellite LED error codes

    Hello, I was wondering if anyone had a list of these flashing LED
    error codes my Toshiba Satellite keeps sending out. I've attempted
    over several hours to find a listing on Toshiba's website, but they
    refuse to post any info except "go to the repair shop".

    If anyone knows the secret location of Toshiba LED codes, I would be
    greatly appreciative, thanks

    These flashing codes are in hexidecimal for several problems that usually
    all refer to some portion of the system board that is having a problem. The
    codes vary a little from computer to computer and type of model like Tecra
    versus Satellite versus Satellite Pro and so on. Most models have one main
    part like a system board while others may have a system board, a separate
    power board, video board, sound board, etc. Without knowing the actual
    model of your Satellite, it probably sounds like a system board failure.
    Have you tried the Compuserve forum run by Toshiba Users? It is not an
    Official Toshiba site, but they have lots of people who have a good
    knowledge base to help you. Otherwise it sounds like service time at a
    Toshiba authorized service center, or premiere service center (and you can
    find these listed at the Toshiba web site).

    Sorry, it's a 2595CDS. The code is 01000100 with long flashes
    representing 1's. I am guessing the first LED flash is the binary
    digit farthest to the left, moving towards the right. Otherwise the
    above binary sequence is backwards ;)

    can you help point me in the right direction? I tried looking on
    toshiba's website, but I think it required me to use a compuserve
    login, and I don't have an account.

    Thanks,
    Dan
