User Manual T2130CT Laptop
I have just bought a Toshiba T2130CT Laptop and wonder if you can help me out with a copy of the User Manual for it and any info about it.
Do you know any good websites re T2130CT
I have never had a Laptop before so will need your help.
Will the battery charge up IF i leave it plugged ON or OFF into the mains AC supply/
Do not know how good the battery is ? it's a Ni-Mh model PA2457U 12V DC 2600maH .. how long does it take to recharge?
As i do not have a CD drive can i add an external CD or would be best to get the Docking station as i think it would have a built in CD ROM drive , and how easy would it be to find a docking station ???? are they cheap?
anyway any help you can give me , would be most gratefull

PS. I do NOT have a Operating System installed yet
as it only has a floppy drive , i think i might have
MS DOS 6 some where ?
The battery will charge both in ON and OFF mode. However, do not expect the battery to be good. The unit is quite old and the battery is probably dead. You can see the 'status' of the battery on the LED in the front (it has a battery icon).
Black - battery not recognized / not charging.
Orange - battery is being charged
Green - battery is fully charged.
The time to recharge is unknown for me but I always look at the LED's to give me the status. Don't care about times, just look at the LED's.
For sure You can use an external CD via PC Card - but remember to use a 16-bit card only!! I don't think it supports 32-bit cards (Cardbus cards).
I don't think that any docking was including a CD. And I don't think You can get hold of a docker for this unit anymore. Perhaps used ones can be found.
Hope this helps!
