Preferred Solution: Toshiba Satellite L series - AMD R7 M260 graphic driver issue

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

On the Toshiba driver support website two display drivers can be downloaded : one installs INTEL HD Graphics Family and the other one installs AMD Catalyst. The AMD driver doesn't work for me, I remember it not even being detected in Device Manager (WEI was 1.0 for both graphic parameters also, so it was disabled for sure).Then, I uninstalled it and installed the Intel driver instead, which worked almost perfectly, the only problem being that the Video Controller is marked with the yellow ! in Device Manager. Thus this can't be the correct driver either.

I tried to install the latest AMD Catalyst manually but it turned out to be just as problematic: after resuming from standby, the screen would stay black and not lit up and I would have to shut it down using the power button)

Probably I'm not the first and last one who will ask: is there going to be any actualization for the display drivers, because the one that are on the driver-homepage of Toshiba are v8.4.0.0 form 2006 :( For example: Far Cry (1 not 2).

Nearly 2/3 of the landscape is black (when I say black, a mean BLACK). And that's not all. Timeshift wouldn't start at all (yes, I know the card will not support full graphics, but I've played games with much better graphic on my PC at home (with GeForce 5200 128MB).

Good think it was just a demo.
Can't imagine what "nice" surprise it would be if someone gives a 40-50$ for a game and finds out he can't play it because of the drivers.

Had just tried trails of some programs for 3D animation...Well, only problems :-/
Another program told me in a straight line - drivers not up do date.
Updating drivers will fix most graphical issues etc....

Thanks for the help in advance.

Answer:Question about newer graphic driver version for Satellite A series

What laptop model do you have?

You could try installing drivers from a newer Toshiba model.
You can also install modifed drivers but that is not recommended since you loose functionality and it may cause problems, and could void your warranty if something goes wrong.

I want to update my graphic accelerator driver which is Mobile Intel 4 Series Express Chipset Family.
On the Intel's website I've found for this accelerator and Win XP OS new driver which has been released 31.3.2009, its version is

Though I can't install it because this driver isn't verified by Toshiba and on Toshiba's website is driver which is one year old (of course I've got this one). So, is some way to install new driver from Intel or can you please this driver verified?

BTW If latest drivers are more than one year old, it doesn't look like good support.

Answer:Intel graphic accelerator driver update on Satellite Pro U series

Hmm I install the Intel-sourced drivers on my laptop successfully, maybe things have changed.

Anyway have you tried the drivers from a newer Toshiba model?

Is there a reason you want to update the driver? i.e. Do the new drivers fix a problem you are seeing?

I bought a laptop a few months ago, and now I've just tested the laptop in the games and I noticed a difficult problem.
My laptop has the following configuration:

Windows 10 Pro x64Intel I7 5500U @2.40 GhzGPU 1: Intel HD 5500 (shared memory)GPU 2: AMD R7 m260 with 2GB GDDR3 64bit8 GB (1x8) @1600MHz DDR3LSSD Kingston v300 128 Gb (system)HDD Toshiba 1 TB (data)

Multitasking is Excellent, the processor works as silly.
integrated graphics is also good, as soon as I enter the game on the switch r7 graphics that moves terribly that cottage.
I reinstalled the system and drivers, I tried all possible, the GPU-z says that the benefits of PCI Express 1.1 x4. Each game works better with integrated instead of the r7. it can be said that as soon switch to R7 260 laptop is not working, sticking.
As soon as I turn off the card (r7) in the device manager and so your computer stays to work on the integrated hd5500 everything goes as best he can.
I do not know what else to try, even Furmark does not recognize the AMD card.
forgive me for my bad English.

I have a three month old Toshiba Satellite L40-139 (PSL40E) with 1GB RAM with Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium Edition pre-installed. This laptop has worked extremely well for me for basic home office tasks up to now, and I'd have no problems recommending it.

In the last few days I have updated software and drivers from the Microsoft Update web site.

Since updating the Mobile Intel(r) 945 Express Chipset Family driver (to version, dated 18 October 2007) the screen resolution changes to 800 x 600 after waking from the Sleep state. The only way I have found to resolve this is to reboot the PC.

I understand from other postings on the web that this particular driver (Mobile Intel(r) 945 Express Chipset Family driver version has caused many other problems on a variety of hardware and software platforms.

Has anyone a definitive fix for the Satellite L40?

I have looked at four options.

1.Leave the new driver installed and reboot Windows every time after waking from Sleep mode. I'd rather not have to do this.

2.Using the Restore Point created by Windows Update before the driver update, roll back to an earlier time. This seems like a good safe way back if it works.

3.Download an old version of the driver and reinstall this. I do not know which version will work but note that others have had success with version I guess a similar version may be included in the Driver Package that can be downloaded from the Toshi... Read more

Answer:Satellite L40-139: New graphic driver causes issue after waking from Sleep

Hello Peter

If I understand you well you use your notebook for ?usual everyday work? and you do not need any ?high performance notebook?. If I am right I must say that you should be happy if notebook runs well and stabile.

I really do not see any reason why you wanted to update chipset driver. Anyway you should try to roll back OS to earlier time and I hope everything will work again. There is definitely no risk and you can test it.

Please post the result.

The problem concerns the driver for Mobile Intel(R) 965 Express Chipset Family. System: Vindows VISTA 32bit Home Premium Service Pack 1. Laptop: Satellite A200.

I installed the new driver from this source (suggestion by Toshiba TEMPO): rLanguage=42&SOURCE=TEMPO&LNG=20

After switching on of the computer, the system is constantly asking me ("warning about securities"), whether to run (open) 3 files: C:\Windows\System32\igfxtray.exe / ...hkcmd.exe / ...igfxpers.exe. Disabling of option "Always ask before opening of the file" doesn't help. I have to choose option "Open / Cancel / Close" to continue switching on of the Windows (any option allows switching on). Please mind that I have translated above mentioned communications from Polish.

Answer for the question, which I received from Intel(R) Technical Support:

++This is actually not a problem with our drivers. This is related to the administrative/user rights and security features set by Windows* Vista.++

Yours faithfully,

Maciej Kochan

Answer:Satellite A200 - strange issue after graphic driver upgrade

When you install drivers, you should Right-click the EXE file and choose "Run as Administrator".

You should also temporarily disable your security software or reconfigure it to allow the system file.
Spyware removal tools such as AdAware and Spybot (or the spyware tool in your Internet Security package) may be blocking the system file.

Answer:Satellite M70-193: graphic driver installation - minimum requirements issue


Very strange ?:|
How did you try to install the graphic driver and what graphic driver did you try to install???
You should use the on from the Toshiba page.

I would recommend downloading firstly the graphic driver.
Then go to the device manger and remove (uninstall) the graphic card from the system.
After new reboot the OS should find automatically the new device and would ask to start the installation.

In this case you should follow the installation procedure and install the new downloaded driver.

good luck

I have a toshiba A100-095 with nvidia geforce go7300. I use my pc to develop application in .net, today after some hours i put the laptop in standbymode, when I resume the system, windows vista told me that video drivers caused problems and were reverted to original version.

You are right. This is really strange and I?m also not 100% sure what could happen.
In my opinion there could be something wrong with the system files and /or the registry entries?
I don?t know how difficult is to reinstall the OS on your notebook (because of the backup) but it?s really, really interesting if the same would happen after installation of ?clean? Vista?

try reinstalling the driver if you can, or get e newer version if there is one. if you can't get it off of that pc, burn the driver onto a disc from another computer, and put in the problematic one and quickly install driver

or you could set the screen to default settings while you install driver e.g. (My laptop) Intel Series 4 Express Chipset Standard Monitor. Or Standard VGA Resolution.

Hi OliviaITlover Depending on the laptop/computer brand and model you have, you won't have the same lights as others. Some offers light for the A/C, network (WiFi), network (Ethernet), disk usage, etc. while others only offers light for the A/C. Personally, I've never seen a light for the CPU usage. If you want to know your CPU usage (and if it's struggling), right-click on the taskbar and select Open Task Manager. From there, you'll see your CPU usage and if it's struggling or not.

Hello everyone,

My little more than one year old Satellite notebook won't turn on when I press the power button. The lights next to the button work, but the computer itself doesn't turn on (no HDD, no CPU).

I took it to a service, and today I called them - they're telling me that the video card overheated (and I didn't really understand, what I got out of it was that the soldered pins got detached) and that's what's causing the problem. They said they can solder it back for $250...

I'm a little skeptical, because I know that I can boot a [desktop] computer without a video card, at least to hear the HDD and the CPU.

Can it be possible that my computer doesn't boot because my video card is detached from the motherboard?

I'm also a little skeptical because I think what they're trying to do is rip me off, that's why I'm asking if this is reasonable. They charge me $30 bucks either way now that they opened my computer and "checked" what was wrong, and they walk away with even more money if they get me to agree to repair it...

My fear is that possibly they even fiddled with my video card now (let's say that the problem was a simple wire and they ruin the soldering on my video card...) just to get me to pay $250 bucks for the computer back.
If I choose to not repair this computer, they'll probably offer to buy it off of me for about the same price if not lower, and it's still a very good lapt... Read more

As far as I know the L300-1AQ supports only the RGB port (VGA port).
This port provides only analog signal and I doubt you will be able to connect it to HDMI port because you cannot convert an analog signal in digital signal.

Hello everybody, first let me say hi as I'm new to this site!

I have a Toshiba Satellite U305-S5077, with an Intel Pentium Duel-Core processor T2080, 1024 MB DDR2 SDRAM (512MB X 512MB) (uses PC2-5300) 160 GB HD.

I'm looking to upgrade the RAM because it runs a little slow for my tastes with Windows Vista.

My question is, would it be beneficial to invest in another Duel Channel/Duel Core RAM Stick, or would it be just the same just to purchase a regular old memory stick (non duel core)?

BTW, the RAM's that I'm looking at in particular are:

CORSAIR ValueSelect 1GB (2 x 512MB) 200-Pin DDR2 SO-DIMM DDR2 667 (PC2 5300) Dual Channel Kit Notebook Memory

To benefit from the performance advantages offered by dual-channel systems, you should install memory in identical pairs. Installing a kitted pair is the best way to ensure that your modules are identical, right down to the chip count.Click to expand...

maybe you should download the newest version of the powersaver for your machine, remove the old version (just go to Add/Remove Applications in your "Control Panel" and uninstall it) and install the downloaded one.

You can download the powersaver here:

Hello, I have big problem with my graphic card.

I bought my laptop :

Toshiba Satellite L-50-B-171 almost 1 year ago. I played some games but in my opinion frames were not enough for this graphic card amd.

I tried also in Bios change something but i dont see any graphic options.

Please, help me with this. I bought this laptop becouse i wanted better card. Not integrated intel.......

Hey there!

I'm having some issues, I believe, with my dedicated R7 M260 Graphics Card.

Every website mentions the card as using a 128 bit bus and a 64 bit bus on slower models:

Meanwhile, benchmarks on the laptop have been terrible at best, and GPU-Z Recognises at card as using a 32 bit (!!) bus and using a PCI-E X4 Interface...

I mean, even my 9 year old desktop graphics card uses a 64 bit bus... And my 5 year old low-cost Acer laptop uses a 64 bit bus ati card...

GPU-Z even recognises the HD 4400 that is also on this laptop as having a Bandwidth 4 TIMES as big as the dedicated r7.

Something seems wrong here...

Please give me a hand..

I'm using the latest toshiba drivers and it's running on maximum performance energe mode...

Here are some useful links:

Answer:Satellite L50-B-1JQ - Radeon R7 M260 working on x4 32bit bus

Every website mentions the card as using a 128 bit bus and a 64 bit bus on slower models

Yes, I think you are right. I found also the information that this graphic card has 2 variants:
DDR3 + 64-bit and DDR3 + 128-bit
Radeon R7 M260 offers 384 Shader Processing Units, 24 TMUs and 8 ROPs, on a 64-bit of DDR3. While the central unit runs at 940MHz and goes up to 980MHz, in Turbo Mode, the memory clock operates at 1000MHz.

Not quite sure if it could be an driver related issue but you could try to install other driver i.e ATI omega drivers and could check the GPU performance.
But as far as I know notebook manufacturer recommends always the usage of own drivers…. especially the graphic card drivers… therefore the usage of non-Toshiba drivers are your own risk…

I have a Toshiba Satellite L50B-127 and yesterday my video card from AMD failed to identify the programs and games. I've tried to reduce graphics, put everything in performance mode and update all drivers and only the intel graphics card are you running which does not give enough income. Including already formatted the computer and the result was the same. Deactivated the card and the computer runs better just a bit with the intel but the income is not enough.
Note: I updated a few weeks Laptop for windows 10 and so far has not given problems.
What are the solutions to solve the problem?

Is there any other URL where I can get updated version of Toshiba Power Saver for my laptop Satellite A100 PSAARE other than the drivers homepage?

It seems that it is not controlling CPU fan anymore (it keep it always at maximum speed).

Also, I've noticed the graphic card (GeForce 7600) too noisy.

If the monitor is off I can't hear it (just the CPU fan), but as soon as I start working it's audible and like a continuous small beep.

Is there any fix (software/hardware) for this?


Answer:Satellite A100 PSAARE: Toshiba Power Saver + Graphic Card noise


The Toshiba European driver page is an only place where you could get the drivers and tools for your Satellite A100 PSAARE European model.
At this time it?s a Power Saver v7.03.07.I for Windows Vista!!!

But I have to say that I don?t see any software problems on your notebook.
The cooling modules and fans have to run with higher performances to ensure that your hardware parts could be cooled properly.

Maybe a cooling module cleaning could help to improve the internal cooling and to reduce the noises.
From time to time I clean my notebook ventilators using the compressed air spray and then the fans run quieter.

Well i've posted this problem before thinking it was a problem with my power settings and using ATI's drivers instead of toshiba, however this problem has persisted and i've managed to pin point the problem. Whenever I have my laptop running on battery its stone cold, but my battery only lasts an hour so this isn't much use.
However as soon as I plug it into an adapter to charge the battery/run on mains my laptop begins to rapidly heat up. Its got to the point that its that hot sometimes I can't touch it for more than a second.

Is there anyway to fix this problem at home or would I have to send this off to toshiba for fixing?

Answer:Overheating issue on Satellite A series

When you connect your notebook to mains the power plan will be changed and your notebook will probably run in high performance mode. That means all hardware components will run under maximum power.

Under these circumstances it is very important how you use your notebook. It must be placed on the desk and cooling vent and grill must be free. The air must circulate properly. What you can try is to set your notebook to run under Balanced power plan. The performance will still be good but the hardware will not run with maximum power.

Play a little bit with all those power settings. If the problem persists I recommend you to contact your local dealer or nearest authorized service partner. They can check your notebook and see what happen exactly. Sorry but I do not see any other solution.

Good luck!

Hello dear people,
English is not my native language. This is Dutch. This is a google translation, the language exuseert you s.v.p. errors. Now my problem: I wanted a different Windows version on the Laptop Satellite by my grandson install. To my surprise, this is not possible. As far as I know I have done everything right and in the past I have already several times a Windows installation on different brands of Laptops. I have followed the instructions in the manual for this Laptop well studied and try to implement. On the Toshiba by my grandson did not and I do not understand why. What I did: I first the start order set for USB with the F12 key, then click F10 pressed and start again. Next, did not begin the installation, but returned after the boot just to back the existing installation. Then I made a few more attempts, unfortunately without results. Can anyone tell me, what I did wrong and point me how I need to run a Windows installation on this toshiba Satallate. I would be very grateful for a comment and a little help.
Best regards,

Good morning people.

I do have an issue with my Satellite. I am currently not home and do not know the exact version i have, but its a C-Series Laptop.

I watched NFL on Sunday, as usual, shut down the Laptop, went to bed.

Monday morning, i started the Laptop and it was already taking ages. I could then log in and saw my wallpaper, the battery status on the bottom right and the windows logo (Start) in the left bottom corner. Every now and then, other logos would show up, but disappear shortly after.

After a few minutes, i got the Windows Blue screen, saying there was an issue and data is being collected.


Toshiba Logo and its saying "data beeing analyzed" - "repair being prepared" - "repair started, may take up to two hours" - blackscreen, reboot, "data being analyzed" and so on.

Now, i had my laptop running for a solid 14 hours and it kept going through this loop.

It will not start from a CD, it will not let me get to BIOS.

I have taken out the RAM one after another, same issue.

What other steps could i take to save my data or the laptop?

Thanks all,

First of all it?s important that you install all Toshiba drivers in the right order.

The Ethernet controller need a right WLan driver or/and a LAN driver.
I have checked the info about this unit and it seems that this unit was delivered with different hardware configurations. (intel wlan card and Atheros wlan card)

Well, if you are not sure which card is installed on your unit you can try to install the both wlan drivers. One should works. Don?t forget to install also the Realtek LAN driver

2 months ago, my notebook didn't want to boot.
I call the After Sale Service which tell me to send it in repair.
No problem : my notebook came me back and it worked fine.

Now there is a *new* (graphic) problem : sometimes, and I don't now why, the screen is dirty.
One can see white traces and white little dots everywhere on the screen, especially near the icons.
It's rather than difficult to explain precisely in English.
I attempted to make a screen, but the bug don't appear on it ; I will try a photo tomorrow...

To make them disappear, I have just to close the screen, which make my notebook hibernating, and when I open it up (immediately), all is good.
+Damned, the bug have just came back !!+

Did someone had this bug ?

I can?t image what this could be exactly but if this appears after your GPU and CPU was changed then I would recommend contacting the ASP again and to ask what is going wrong.

I don?t know if you are using an newest graphic driver and BIOS but you should check if the issue would still persist with updated BIOS and graphic driver.
But if you will not notice any improvements then an ASP call is needed

Answer:Vista on Satellite P20 - need graphic driver

Hi mate,

since Vista is not supported on this machine you won?t get any official drivers for it. The only chance would be to try the drivers from [Laptopvideo2Go|] and check if they work.
The graphics card is old, the machine is old and you will need enough RAM to run Vista smoothly.

But I ask you: why don?t you stay with Windows XP?? It?s more reliable, it?s faster and you have even official drivers for it..

Just give some short thought about it, otherwise visit the suggested site and try your luck. :)

Answer:New graphic driver for Satellite 5200-802

Hi Raoul

All the Toshiba drivers are placed on the Toshiba driver page and the compatible drivers for you unit you will find only at this page.

The problem is that mostly other display drivers cannot be installed on the notebooks because the drivers are not designed for the notebook usage.

But if you want you can try the omega graphic drivers. Sometimes it?s possible to install it. But you should know that if something going wrong you will lose the warranty coverage because as far as I know Toshiba does not support usage of other graphic drivers. The not supported drivers can overheat the graphic card.

So be careful and if you do something it?s at your own risk.

Have downloaded driver from Toshiba support website (psl33-xp-820300) but on installation comes up with not compatible with display adapter.
Can you advise....?

Answer:Can not install ATI graphic driver on Satellite L30-10V


This is very strange because a friend of mine has the same notebook series L30 PSL33E and the ATI graphic driver works and can be installed!!!

Could please post the ?Hardware ID? of the Graphic card?
You can find them in the Device Manager Display Adapter details.

By the way; this is a XP driver adn if you have installed XP on your notebook, you have to install the Toshiba drivers in teh right order.
Check the installation instruction.

I anticipate your feedback!!!

I can't find the drivers for my laptop, anywhere. I've got Omega drivers right now but I want to use official ATI drivers. I can't download them from the ATI website because the refer me back to Toshiba. But Toshiba hasn't got anything on their website. They don't even list the m40 anymore.

Why is it, and it's not only Toshiba, that computer manufactures have bad websites? Never heard of web 2.0 or something?

*woops, this had to go in the Satellite forum, not the pro.

Answer:Need graphic driver for Satellite M40x-231


>But Toshiba hasn't got anything on their website. They don't even list the m40 anymore.
I don?t agree with you buddy? you problem is that you didn?t search properly.

The Toshiba European driver page is very clear? Maybe you need a additional help? ;) LOL

Anyway? Toshiba European drive page can be found here: -> Support & Download Center -> Download Drivers

Here you will find a download form.

So now you don?t know what to choose??? ?:|
Hmmm how about this:
Archive -> Satellite -> Satellite M -> Satellite Mx40 -> ?.

Is it soooo difficult??? In my opinion it?s not.

My laptop is Satellite C55-A-134 and I have problems with graphic cards. Intel HD 4000 and Nvidia GeForce 710M. My programs and PC games recognize only Intel HD 4000 and I can't even choose to open programs or games with "High performance graphic card" because there is no option anymore :/ I tried to install latest graphic drivers, but nothing change. Aplication "Nvidia control panel" doesn't work. I have windows 10, but i had that problem in windows 8.1 too.

Hello Everybody,

my english isnt very good, but i try.
I've buy a TOSHIBA A100-02b with win vista. But Vista dont work with corel 10< or photoshop.
So i remove vista and install xp.

BUT xp don't find the graphic card. ->geforce (i am no specialist).

What have i to do that xp works with this card???
you can also write me on icq 150667202


Answer:Satellite A100-02B: Need XP graphic driver


The Satellite A100-02B is a part of the PSAARE series.
I have checked the Toshiba driver page and found only the Realtek XP sound driver?.

So what to do???? In my eyes only the sound driver was published because other XP drivers can be found and use from another A100 series.

Therefore I would recommend checking other Satellite A100 and Equium A100 series and try to install the single XP drivers.

Good luck?.

i have just bought an A10 Sat Pro, with an intel 82852/82855 gm/gme graphics controller. I have tried to install latest drivers for this card...

But it gets about 75% of the install and then hits an error box saying "contact toshiba"?! HELP!

The driver which is installed is a 2003 driver. I need to update the drivers as i cant get Medal of Honor allied assault to run...

Answer:Satellite Pro A10 won't accept graphic driver


Where did you download this graphic driver??
From the Intel website or from the Toshiba website?

I suppose you use not a original Toshiba graphic driver and therefore it?s not possible to use it.
Unfortunately, some people have suggested that the Tosh drivers are a little bit different. They are modified to prevent from graphic card overheating.

The error message occurs when i install the software package : Setup copy dll, install some component and stop at driver installation slide with message ( translation from french ) "setup was not able to finish installation, try to configure your display adapter with standard vga one before executing setup

When i try to detect the card with control pannel and chose the CX_21880.inf file in 2KXP_INF, the process copy the dll, but at end complains that "a problem occurs in installation of Radeon X700" and then error is "ACCES DENIED"

I've tried to follow sequence as :
uninstall all, go to safe mode, delete video card ( i can't set a proper VGA other card )

I'v tried a driver removal tool ( Driver Cleaner pro ) then restart XP then try to reinstall ATI original toshiba driver : same problem

TOSHIBA support told me to upgrade to bios 1.60 : same problem

I can't conclude that original toshiba video driver can't be installed on a toshiba....

Answer:Satellite M60-176: Cannot install the graphic driver


What happens if you install the OS from the Toshiba recovery CD???
This CD contains also the ATI graphic driver.
How about installation of the graphic driver from site???

But I have to say this is very strange issue?. The driver from the Toshiba site should works.

Can anybody tell me about any compatible VGA Driver for my Satellite 1900-102 notebook. It is not available on toshiba website.


Answer:Satellite 1900-102: Need graphic driver

Hi there,

where did you look for the driver? On the european site?

Here are two links which will lead you to

Toshiba Europe drivers download ->
Toshiba Canada drivers download ->

Otherwise if you really do not find anything you could try

since you have a ati graphics chip in your machine, the omega drivers should be useful for you.

Whenever i start my computer it says "Webcam driver open failed, please restart your camera or computer".

Can someone help me to solve this problem or I have to buy a new camera?

Plz let me know as soon as possible


Answer:Webcam driver open failed on Satellite A series


What OS are you using? Vista? What notebook model is it?
If yes please install the SP1 because it contains a Microsoft patch which helps to solve the webcam issue.
I had a similar issue and the SP1 was the key.

It would be also recommended to remove the old webcam software/driver and to download a webcam driver from the Toshiba European driver page and to reinstall it.

Check it out!

I possess two Toshiba laptops 17 inches screen as desktop replacement: 1x Satellite P20-552 & 1x Qosmio G10.
Both are dead graphic card problem.
The conclusion of my search on the WEB is that the nVidia FX Go5700 seems to be the weak point of these laptops.

On the Satellite the card died slowly: during the start up Toshiba logo disappeared but WinXP logo was loading fine, then WinXP loaded with the screen not refreshing and having synchronization problem, etc.
The Qosmio died suddenly: activities on the hard disk I suppose WinXP was loading, but black screen (internal and external)!

I know that, contrary to the desktop, the graphic processor is not a separate entity; it is incorporated to the motherboard. My queries are:

(1) Who has to be blamed, Toshiba or Nvidia?
(2) How to prevent the premature breakdown of the card/motherboard?
(3) Could the card/motherboard be repaired?

Answer:Graphic card issue on Satellite P20-552 & Qosmio G10


I have red Satellite P20-304 and it still works well. Maybe you can offer this story to someone else but I can say that Satellite P20 is great notebook. I love it. Old one but still has an attractive design.
If you have bad luck I can understand it but to speak generally and write about weak point is for me nothing but absurd.

Nice questions you have here especially the first one. :)
1 - To blame someone will not help at all. Try to get replacement and get it work again.
2 - There is nothing you can do. All you can do is to take care how to use the notebook and do not allow overheating.
3 - As far as I know something like this is not possible. In such case the mainboard will be replaced.

What you can do is to check eBay from time to time. Maybe you will be lucky and you can buy used mainboard for good price and exchange it.

I have one Toshiba Satellite A500-149 and in the last week my display was ace stripes.

The grapichs card is ATI Mobility Radeon? HD 4650 .

I send the computer to Toshiba yesterday but i need a feedback because a repair . If the problem even graphical as might cost to repair?

Someone know ?

Answer:Satellite A500 -149 - graphic card issue

I think nobody here can help you. Either is graphic card defective or maybe display only.
Anyway, if GPU is defective it will be pretty expensive.

I think you should contact Toshiba service and ask what is the result of the diagnostic and how much you must pay for repair.

Hi everyone,

I have Toshiba Satellite L50-B-1K7 (PSKTCE) laptop model.

When it should switch from Intel graphic to AMD it just turns off without any warning. I have installed latest drivers for both graphic cards, and also checked in device manager for latest versions of drivers but problem remains. Sometimes, for example when I turn on the Solidworks, although it is listed in catalyst control center for high performance and should use AMD instead of Intel graphic, laptop still uses Intel.

When I load something in Solidworks what needs more graphical resources (rendering...) Solidworks crushes down with message that AMD driver had encountered a problem but it is solved (on way that laptop switched back on Intel graphic).

I use Win7 64bit and switchable graphics system doesn't work. I have this laptop less than a month and tried everything.

Does anyone have similar problem, or some advice how to solve it?

Thanks in advance!

Answer:Satellite L50-B-1K7 - switch from Intel graphic to AMD issue

> I have installed latest drivers for both graphic cards
According to notebook specification page, this unit has been sold without preinstalled system.
Therefore it looks like you installed the Win 7 64bit at your own hand.

From where did you download the graphic card drivers (Intel and ATI)?
Did you use the drivers available on Toshiba EU driver page?

In order to switch to the external GPU you have to click right on desktop.
In Catalyst Control Center click on Power and select Maximum Performance when Plugged IN

Then in Switchable Graphics Global Settings choose also Maximize Performance

Then click on Switchable Graphics Application Settings
Now you would be able to add an application (game, etc?) which could use this graphic card settings

Now point simply to the exe file and add to the application list.
After that you will see the exe file in the list. Click on graphic settings column and set it to high performance.

Hi all

I have updated my notebook with the drivers from Toshiba support site, and I updated all with Windows Vista 32-bits drivers.

And now my windows in the top are with problems..... (attached in link)

Image one

On the support site there is no other display driver.
Does somebody know how can I solve this problem?

Thanks Daniel

Answer:Strange graphic issue on my Satellite A200-1V0

The notebook was delivered and preinstalled with Vista. Am I right?
Therefore you have received a Toshiba Recovery CD too.

Did you notice such display issues with the Toshiba preinstalled OS???
Or did the display issue appear after the installation of the new display driver?

You could try to connect an external monitor to test if the same would be visible on the second display. This info would be helpful to provide further suggestions regarding your display problem.
