Two beeps usually means a parity memory failure, but it changes form bios to bios.

Here's what I suggest....

Toshiba Technical support is free for all owners of Toshiba computers and laptops for life, even if you bought the laptop second hand.

I don't know where you are in the world but go to the Toshiba website and look up your technical support phone line and give them a call.

You may have a cooling problem (with older computers), if you hear your fan running excessively and then it shuts down on you. Otherwise it is more likely a hard drive issue.

reinstall the audio driver then restart the computer. you can download the latest audio driver from your computer manufacturer's web site.

It is better to give it for repair. But I would recommend using a USB keyboard externally. It is easier.Read more at www.fixpcfreeze.com

Try to download and install newest windows drivers for the wireless and check BIOS for wireless settings. Apart from that... stick to Linux? ; )

When you install a new harddrive, it has no Operating System on it.
Windows XP and Windows Vista, are examples of an Operating System.

Each laptop manufacturer, has their own system of changing a laptop harddrive. Some allow you to press a key or two, to put the laptop in a state where it will save the basic Operating System files, and when you install the new harddrive, it will transfer them over to it.

Some laptop manufacturers do have this option.

You either have to take the harddrive out, install it into an external enclosure for a harddrive, (Uses a USB cable) Then attach the external enclosure via the USB cable, to another computer, and use a 'mirror' imaging program to save the Operating System to that computer.

Then the new harddrive is installed in that external enclosure, and the Operating System is 'mirrored' over to it.

Just information for you, as you cannot do this now with a crashed harddrive.
Your option now, is to buy a genuine copy of the Operating System you had on the laptop, and install it.
Not what you wanted to hear, huh?

You need to buy whatever version of Windows XP it had, (WinXP Home or WinXP Pro), or Windows Vista.
If it was Windows Vista, I suggest getting at least the Windows Vista Home Premium version.

I personally prefer Xp over Vista.
Tigerdirect.com, and Newegg.com, have these.
Look for Software>Operating Systems.

OR, you can simply put Ubuntu Linux on it for free.

I hate to say your getting scammed but...........

First. Price for service is unreasonable.

Second, Slow boot=new mobo? I am very sceptical about that diagnosis.

A few questions if I may.
Are there more than 6 icons in your system tray?(lower right corner)
Are there any programs in the startup folder? Start/allprograms/startup.
Have you de-fragged the comp in a while?

After that, consider this. Can you get a newer laptop for 700 bucks? OK, not as nice as yours. Isn't it still under warranty?

It could be a driver problem perhaps. Does the post screen show at all or is there absolutely nothing?
