Toshiba Satellite C70D-C asks to put in date/time

Question: Toshiba Satellite C70D-C asks to put in date/time

Hi there

Pretty much every time I turn on my laptop I am being asked to enter in the date, it defaults to 1.1.2015. Does anyone know why this is happening and how I can overcome this issue? Just to be clear this happens right at the point of turning the computer, i.e. before Windows even starts to load up. It must be date/time settings of the device.

Thanks for your help in advance

Preferred Solution: Toshiba Satellite C70D-C asks to put in date/time

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 http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi,

I am new to this forum and purchased a Satellite C70D yesterday.
I went thru set up, It asked me for my email and password.

I entered this and the next time I logged in there was my hotmail profile photo.
I entered my password - no problem. I changed the language from Spanish to English etc etc.

I switched it on this morning and got the Toshiba Logo - then it went to blank screen and there was a large data entry box asking me for a password. I tried the same one and I get another screen showing a red data entry box saying "VERIFY ERROR!! Please reenter to continue!!

HELP!!

Can anyone help me please. I am operating windows 8.1

Thanks

Eric

Answer:Satellite C70D asks me for my email and password

I think I must be in the operating system as there is no need to click on the box to enter a password!!

Hi.
I have Toshiba Satellite L50-B for over a year now. I upgraded RAM memory to 8gb and it works great. But last 10 days BIOS date and time keeps restarting to default every time I shut down or hibernate laptop. My battery is dead, but I didn't take out, it charges all the time, and BIOS restart after I disconnect charger from laptop. I think that CMOS battery is dead, but when I open laptop there is no CMOS battery. Someone told me that this model have some kind of flash chip for bios time. How do I fix this?

I've only noticed today that when I turn up my laptop's volume up to about 28 (even with headphones in), there's this high pitch noise that comes from the speakers. And I'm sure it's the speakers and not anything else.
But the sound is sort of that real ear-killing noise so I can't listen to it for long. It even sometimes sounds like thousands of crickets - a complete nightmare

But with my volume at any level below 28 I can listen to whatever through headphones without the sound bothering me.

Does anyone have any ideas for a solution? I do know a thing or two about computers but nothing about anything extremely technical and I'm not sure if I want to take it apart, unless I really have to.

If you could help me it would be appreciated!

Thanks in advance. I am novice to computers and am not exactly sure if this is because of virus or something else!!
 

Answer:bios starts by itself and asks to set date and time on startup

It sounds as if the CMOS battery is dead. Do you know what to look for, the battery is a small silver disc that you will find on the motherboard.

Hello everyone,

I've just bought a Satellite A300 - 1MC (model no. PSAG8E-00W00TEN) and i'm trying to use the Toshiba Assist software, but its asking me for a password and i have no idea what it is or where i can find it.

Any suggestions?

Also slightly off topic, the laptop has buttons for controlling media player, is there anyway i can change them to control iTunes?

Cheers
Ian

Answer:Satellite A300-1MC PSAG8E - Toshiba Assist software asks for password

Have you tried to make an update of Toshiba Assist? A new version and all other Toshiba stuff you can find here:
http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com
Maybe the update will solve the problem.

About the control buttons? I think you must set iTunes as standard media player and select all file with playing iTunes.

I have two C70D's. Both died within weeks of each other, and went back for repair with RepairTech, under warranty.

Both machines failed to boot, with an error code(?) of three flashes of the power button.

One machine came back within a week, fully working.

The other took three weeks, came back with a change of motherboard (they say). I unpacked it, and it was still not booting, still flashing three times on the power button.

I phoned repairtech, immediately, sent it back, the next day.

Today it came home, again, I opened it...it wont boot, and does the same three flashes on the power light.

Back on the phone. They've booked it in again, saying maybe it's a peripheral. The only peripheral is the power adaptor. I have two. It doesn't work with either.

I believe the problem is battery related, but it's an internal battery so I can't open it without voiding the warranty.

Has anyone else had problems with RepairTech? Does anyone know if this is a battery problem?

Hi,

I've been given an satellite pro 6100 that hadnt been used for some time. Windows wouldnt work so reinstalled it with the correct disk.

when i try and 'activate' windows i get 32777 error message and the laptop is unable to connect with the activation servers which a google leads to me believe that the date/time are incorrect in the bios.

I know to press esc to get access to the bios but there is no option to change date and time in there. i have set the correct date/time in windows but this doesnt seem to synch with the bios. i have updated to the latest bios version but this still does not help.

how can i change or update the time in the bios?

thanks

Answer:Satellite Pro 6100 - How to change date/time in BIOS

Hello

I doubt that time and date setting in BIOS does affect the Windows activation? Even the Windows time doesn?t affect this in my opinion. There must be another reason for this problem.
Can you activate Windows via phone?

Normally the date/time in BIOS can you change if you mark the date or time then press ?+? or ?-? key to change this. Sometimes you have to press PageDown/Up depending on the BIOS or notebook model.
Usually in BIOS setup you can find a short info how to change the values.

Check this!!!

Hi, sorry for my bad english, I'm italian!

I've a problem with my new L40-17S. Yesterday I've took off the battery becase now I use the notebook only at home;
Today I've turned it on (with AC adapter..) and bios say to me that date/hour is not correct.
I think because there's not a bios battery? What should I do?

Thanks in advance, Matteo

Answer:Removed the battery on Satellite L40-17S - Now date & time not correct

Well, seems the RTC battery is empty.
You should recharge the RTC (BIOS) battery. In such case you should read your user manual because there you will find the nice explanation.

Usually you should insert the battery and connect the AC adaptor to the notebook. To charge the RTC battery the notebook must be connected and running for about 14-20 hours. But all details can be found in the user manual like on my notebook.

Hi,

I have a Satellite M100 laptop (PSMA0A-0J4002) which is having problems with keeping time. It loses several hours during normal operation (on AC power or battery power or even with no battery and only AC power). It stops when the computer hibernates or is turned off.

My Windows time zones are correct and I have turned off automatic internet time updates too.
The strange thing is the date never changes! It does not go to 1980 or similar when the battery is removed. Does this mean it is not the CMOS battery?
I have dismantled the laptop looking for the CMOS battery but it is soldered in! Is this correct?

I am not sure if this is relevant or related but occasionally the screen goes black after emerging from hibernation and the laptop needs to be turned off and when it comes back it asks something like: delete memory and restart or restart.
I have to choose delete memory and restart. Very rarely I also get the blue screen of death with counting upwards saying that dumping memory (I think).

I have removed my firewall and AV programs but it still loses time.

Does anyone able to help please?
Is it likely to be hardware, CMOS battery or software?

Thankyou in anticipation!!
Lewis

Answer:Satellite M100 PSMA0A losing time but not date.

> I have dismantled the laptop looking for the CMOS battery but it is soldered in! Is this correct?
I?m not quite sure how it?s mounted on M100 notebook but in many cases the CMOS batteries are not easy to remove? it?s always a job for ASP technicians?

The time and date issue might be related to empty CMOS battery?
Usually you can recharge such battery easily.
In order to charge the CMOS battery, the notebook needs to be connected to the AC adaptor and the notebook has to run more than 20hours.
After that the CMOS battery should be recharged.

But if the issue would still appear, then you should check if the BIOS update would help you? otherwise it?s an motherboard issue which should be checked by an notebook technician!!!

Hello friends :-)

I just bought new Toshiba Satellite L-50-B (Skullcandy) laptop. After couple of days I read on internet if I want to save my battery I just need to remove it and work on AC power. I did that. My battery is attached with two screws. When my battery is removed I noticed one problem, my BIOS time is resetting every time I turn off the laptop. When I put the battery back, time is not resetting.
I tough maybe it was a CMOS battery? What do you think? I open it and I could not find the CMOS battery?????

Another question, why the battery is attached with two screws? I was wondering, maybe she is not meant to be deattached?

Hi all,

I'm not very good with computers, and I've been having a couple problems for a while now. My laptop is almost three years old, I don't know why I'm posting this after so long but anyway. I think they're called "hotkeys" or the "launchkeys", hopeyfully you know what i'm talking about, but anyway they are not working anymore. They worked for sometime, but they do not work now. I went into the control panel and went into the "Toshiba Controls" and tried to change what each control does, but it still does not work. Does anyone know how to fix it?

Also, another problem I've had since I first got the laptop is my date and time are screwed up. If I set my time for 3:30pm, it will work fine, until about 4:15pm, which is when it will go back to 3:30pm, and go all the way until 4:15pm and it continues in that cycle until I manually change the time. I've had a few friends (no one professional) look at it, but can't figure it out. When I start my laptop I go to the settings in the boot screen, try and change it from there, but it keeps going through the cycle. If I click the time, and click the "internet time" tab and say "update now", it will update, and only then will the time work normally, but only until I turn my laptop off. Once I turn it off and back on, it goes through that 45 minute cycle again. Has anyone had this problem or know how to fix it?

Greetings

Marco

Answer:Satellite C70D-A-108 is very slow

Hi Marco

I don't have this notebook model and cannot confirm what you wrote but fact is that almost all new notebooks are pretty slow at the beginning. Many applications are set to start with Windows and this, of course, slows down boot time.
Windows updates are also set to automatic so in the background the machine will download and install many updates so this will slow down your machine rapidly.

In my opinion you should install original OS that you got with this machine and optimize it a bit.
Remove all useless stuff, change start-up option and disable automatic Windows updates.
In the past I have noticed that original preinstalled antivirus is also responsible for notebook?s performance so I don't use original preinstalled application but my own version of Avir Antivir and it runs perfectly.

Check all these options and I hope your machine will run much better than before.

I have a C70D-A-107 and want to speed up this notebook. Already placed 4gb extra memory so the notebook has now 8gb internal. I doubt whether it is usefull to put in 2x8gb. I think the processor is just to slow. It has a AMD E1-2100 inside. Is it possible to put in another (faster) processor?

Answer:Speed-up Satellite C70D-A-107

The Satellite C70D-A-107 was equipped with an AMD Essentials E1-2100 Accelerated CPU (1,00 GHz, 1 MB L2 Cache)
It’s not the fastest CPU therefore the notebook performance isn’t the best…

But CPU upgrade isn’t officially supported by notebook manufacturer... therefore I don’t think that you will be able to upgrade the CPU…

I read about successful Intel CPU upgrades but did not meet anyone who was able to perform an upgrade with an AMD CPU

Hi There,

I have had a Satellite C70D for about 18 months now, but have not used it in the past year as I have been disputing with customer services about the windows licence for the machine as I lost it when I formatted the original hard drive before installing an SSD and they wouldnt send me a copy of it. I have now bitten the bullet and bought a windows 10 licence again. However since building the machine a few days ago, I have been having a couple of issues and as it is now out of warranty, I cannot contact customer support (Who I found unhelpful even when it was in warranty!)

The first issue is when I boot up the machine, occasionally the keyboard will not work, I cannot type the BitLocker pin and I have to remove the battery and press and hold the power button for 10 seconds, this then fixes the issue for a few reboots before it goes again.

The second is that occasionally it will boot up with a red x next to the WiFi symbol, but it detects the WiFi card, usually a reboot fixes this but not always. I have reseated the card and still no avail.

Can anyone shed any light on what may be causing this? The BIOS is up-to-date as are all of the drivers.

Thanks in advance for your help

Answer:Can I replace the HDD in my Satellite C70D-B -00P model with an SSD?

Generally speaking yes, you can do this but problem is that your notebook model doesn't have HDD cover at the bottom side.
To have full access to the HDD the bottom cover must be removed completely but it should be done by authorized service only.

Of course you can try to do it alone but I?m afraid you may lose the warranty.
If possible contact nearest Toshiba service provider in your country, explain the situation and ask for help.

First of all you can change between the special function key mode (without pressing FN key) or normal (standard) mode (Hold Fn first to use standard F1-F12 functions.)

This function can be changed in BIOS.
In BIOS go to Advanced -> System configuration

Check this option.

I have 2 issues with my new Satellite C70D-B-32U.
When I put it in sleep mode, it does. But after about 5 minutes, it goes automatically to hibernate. This I don't want. And I don't want to disable hibernate, because I do use it when the laptop is not in use for longer periods. The power settings in control panel do not reflect this behaviour. In the settings, I specified that the laptop should never go to hibernate. Hybrid state is disabled.

And secondly, more importantly. Whenever it goes to hibernate, I can only wake it up with the power button. Not with the (internal) keyboard, not with the usb mouse. I would like an option to wake it from hibernate by pressing any key on the keyboard. In bios power on keyboard is set to on. Is there anything else I can change to have this available?
Actually if issue 1 is solved and the laptop stays in sleep mode, this issue is also solved since from sleep I can wake on a mouseclick which is also fine.

The OS is windows 8.1

After a regular shutdown I cannot boot the system anymore.
System starts but does not boot.

Referring to the manual (section 6, solutions of problems) I tried to hit [F12] after power on but nothing happened.
Same when hitting [F2].

My impression is that something failed on hard disk drive.
:-(

P.S. system has Win10 installed.

I have a Satellite C70D-A-114...

i hardly used it because it was slow

so i wanted to sell it

first i wanted to set it back to factory settings

doing that, in that process i seem to have deleted all files

so now i get message no bootable disc etc.

Tried everything, there is simply no recovery file

So where can i find such a file for free? It's just not normal that it is not on the site.

Answer:Need recovery files for my Satellite C70D-A-114

All you can find for free are all drivers, tools and utilities. Original recovery image (software package) is not for free and if you need it you must order recovery disc directly by Toshiba.

You can order it on https://backupmedia.toshiba.eu/landing.aspx

By the way: in user’s manuals document is clearly described how you can create recovery installation disc. I’m wondering you didn’t make it in the past.

So I bought this laptop a few months ago.
For the past few weeks the Laptop stopped playing sound.
I watched a stream in Chrome.

So actually I should be able to see the sound playing in the mixer.
But I wasn't able to play any sound or get any deflection in the mixer.

Then I installed Speccy and as this administration window popped up a sound was played and it worked.

I have no idea why the sound stopped working and why it started again.
Is someone able to help me?

I am using Windows 8.1

Answer:Satellite C70D-A-11D - no sound, random

The main thing is that you have sound again. It is not easy to say what was wrong there.
Have you installed some updates or anything else that can be responsible for this sound issue?

There are too many problems.
In my opinion you should reinstall original recovery image and test notebook functionality with “factory settings” again.

To be honest I’ve never heard about such touchpad behaviour.
Have you tested all touchpad settings?
If there is option to set all of them on default settings please do this and test functionality again.

Anyway, best hardware test is to reinstall operating system and check touchpad functionality with “factory settings”.

Hi all,

excuse the new thread but I haven't found any answers anywhere online, just speculation and it's for different models.

So I have a C70D-B-10U, running windows 7 64bit pro. When I formatted it and updated everything, it just kept crashing when trying to play back videos on Windows Media Player. I cleaned the inside and replaced thermal paste, updated to even newer drivers, and started using VLC as my default media player. It rarely crashed BUT it always does when I try to start playing games (nothing heavy - League of Legends). Laptop seems to be doing well with memory tests, no faults detected.

I've read that this could be caused by:
Faulty GPUFaulty BatteryFaulty PSUBad Capacitors on the MOBO

Has anyone had any similar experience? I've reinstalled Windows and it's the same story. If it's a motherboard issue, I guess it would be better to just get a new one?

Thanks

Answer:Satellite C70D-B-10U no warning crash (power, GPU or capacitors)

Update: I decided to test the RAM and it seems like it can't handle 8GB. Both 4GB sticks work on any slot, but when I have all of it on the machine it crashes. Do you think it is a motherboard issue?

Hi there,

I was bought the above model of laptop for an early Christmas present which usually sits down in the living room, my old Satellite Pro sat down there with no issues however with this device the wireless signal is very low and I appear to be having it sitting right next to the wireless router (which is located upstairs in my sons bedroom), I wondered if there's any steps I could take to improve the signal?

It baffles me how a new system has such a poor wireless signal when my old Satellite Pro which was 6 years old had no wireless issues whatsoever.

My other issue is from the moment I switched the laptop on (yesterday when it was delivered) the updates on Windows Update are slow or don't start at all, is this an issue or just normal?

I'd appreciate any help or input at all, thank you.

Hi

Well, I?m wondering why you purchased a unit with an internal (part of CPU) graphic chip if you want use the notebook for gaming?

The notebook supports the AMD Radeon HD 8400 graphics which is part of AMD Quad-Core A6-5200 CPU.
Such GPU is similar to Intel HD GPU which is also part of Intel CPUs.

Such internal graphic cards are not really designed for gaming? of course you would be able to run and to play a game but don?t expect too much?

Hi,

I have a toshiba C70D-B-306 (psclee) laptop and I reinstalled windows 8.1 from a seperate DVD because i exchange the default harddrive for a fast ssd disk.

Everything works but in my device manager I have 2 unknown devices listed (with exclamation mark), as far as I know I downloaded all available drivers from toshiba support website for this laptop and installed them but the 2 unknown devices simply will not disappear.

Can someone tell me which driver I exactly need for these 2 devices?

The 2 devices are:
ACPI\ASD0001\2&DABA3FF&1
and
ACPI\SMB0001\4&FE73487&0

As mentioned, i allready downloaded all drivers for this laptop and installed them, windows is ofcourse up-to-date. Also I let windows search for drivers on the Internet and on the whole drive, but no drivers where found.

Who can give me the golden tip?

Answer:Satellite C70D-B-306 - 2 unknown devices in device list

There is a good method in order to find out what drivers are missing.
First of all you should check the DEV (device) and VEN (vendor) IDs

Here is an short instruction how to find this details:
http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/kb0/HTD0302U00000R01.htm

Knowing the device and vendor ID, it should not be a big deal to get the right drivers.

At the other hand you should install also additional Toshiba software (Toshiba System Driver) released for Win 8.1
Please note also that there are two Win 8.1 driver areas: ?Win 8.1 update? and ?Win 8.1 32bit/64bit? categories
In case you would not find all drivers within the Win 8.1 update check also the Win 8.1 32bit/64bit categories.

Hello,

I have buy a Satellite C70D-A-11T and pass it on Windows 7 64 bits Home Premium.
I install all the drivers and I haven't any problems.

When I want to connect it to my TV for first time, I discover there is no sound on the TV.
I try to go on the speaker (near the clock of windows), right click, sound, first tab (I think it is "Playback" in english... I have a french Windows) and my device (TV) doesn't appear.

I come back on Toshiba Support website to download the last driver "HDMI Audio driver" for my laptop, I connect the cable, and it appear in the sound properties. I select it as my default device and the sound come right from my TV.

Great !

But when I restart my laptop (with or without the HDMI cable), the TV disappear from the list in the sound properties, the only one solution to recover the sound is to reinstall the HDMI Audio Driver.
If I start the driver installation with the "advanced" option, I have the list of drivers to install and I see all drivers are already installed, but the HDMI Audio Driver will be upgraded... I install it and it work until the next restart.

Could you explain me why the version of the driver don't stay on the system, and how to make it work without reinstall it everyday ?

Answer:ODD on my Satellite C70D-A-11E wont read DVDs anymore

Hi

If optical disc drive is installed properly maybe is reading lens dirty. Try to clean it up.

Other way, if your ODD can read CDs but not DVDs it can also be hardware malfunction. The reading lens cannot be calibrated properly and cannot find the right position to read DVD media.

In such case ODD must be exchanged.

Try to clean lens up and check if the problem persists. If yes contact nearest Toshiba service provider and ask for help.

Would be grateful for any advice to remove the back panel.

I've removed battery, ~16 screws + 1 tiny screw at the optical drive and whilst it does 'unclick' everywhere else, there seems to be something stopping the panel being removed just above the battery compartment and don't want to force it.

Even our IT guys at work cannot work it out.

PLEASE HELP.....my new laptop is very slow so have purchased RAM but can't access the back.

Answer:Satellite C70D-B-30D: How to access back panel after ~16 screws removed

At first I must say that you should not remove bottom cover alone because it will cancel valid warranty. If there is no RAM cover, RAM should be exchanged or upgraded by authorized personal only.

I know every of us think it is easy to do and want to do this alone.
What I know is follow:
2 screws in the middle are fixing the keyboard. What must be removed are 14 screws and small flat screw at the optical drive. That’s all. There is no other hidden screw.

Of course there are also small plastic holders and bottom cover must be removed very gently.

Greetings, and thanks in advance for your help..

Awhile back I formatted my Windows 10 PCs to show ddd dd-mmm-yyyy on my taskbar clock. This worked happily on my desktop and laptop for months, maybe even a year +

Now (probably starting in the past couple days, if not today), on one of those two PC's, this format will no longer display. It is Okay on the other PC.
What has changed that the taskbar clock space used to expand to fit the "short date" format, but now it will no longer expand - and instead just refuses to display the date at all. (NOTE: I've verified the issue by testing shorter formats -- short formats, like "ddd" show up correctly. Only if you request a longer format will the date not display - evidently because it is too long for the clock area. )

Additional Notes that may help:

* "Working" pc is running build 10586 PC with too small a clock space that won't expand -- Build 14393

*Other differences: Notification/Action center Icon is left of clock on the working PC - Right of clock on the non-working
Right- Clicking on task bar gives "properties" option on working PC -- But "Settings" option on the non-working

( I don't want to prejudice responses - but clearly the implication to me is that some recent OS update is most likely the culprit.)

Before I ask my question I just want to let everyone know that this site has been a great help.

So, I have a TextBox that needs to accept a date and time. Simple enough. However, the data that I need to collect has to always have a date and time but when I use General Date it will accept either Date or Time or both as its designed to do so.

I have tried setting

Format as " m/d/yyyy h:nn:ss ampm "
Input Mask as " 90/90/0000\ 99:00:00\ >LL;0;_ "

and tinkered with me.textbox.format() as an if statment

But this leads to the other issue that most of this data will be pasted into the form in either of the below formats.

I'm stumped and haven't been able to figure this out through research or my own luck.

Any help is appreciated and thank you all.
 

Answer:General Date Forced To Have Date And Time

So.... I think I figured it out. Been testing it and it seems to result in the way i need it to. So I have the Form/Table set to Date/Time Field formatted as a General Date. This will at least validate that the information inputted in the text-box is a date/time of some sort. Then I added the below code to make it follow a validation rule of sort. So far it seems regardless of the way information is pasted in the end result is always MM/DD/YYYY HH:MM:SS AMPM
If Me.YourTextBox Like "**/**/**** **:**:** **" Then
Cancel = False
Else
MsgBox ("Please enter a date and time in this format MM/DD/YYYY HH:MM:SS AM/PM")
Cancel = True
End If
I'm still open to suggestions if there is a more efficient way of doing this. If not I hope this information will be found helpful to others.
Thanks All,

Every time OE checks for new mail, a MSN screen pops up asking me to log in. I can cancel it and then close the error screen from OE when it can't connect, then hit send\receive again, go thru the same gyrations a few times and finally receive my mail. Sending mail works fine. I do not use MSN for anything, never have. How do I get rid of this MSN request to log in? It gets quite annoying every 5 minutes. I have win XP home, high speed internet service, 3.06 gig Pentium 3, 2 gig memory. I have looked in startup, add\remove programs, OE tools, etc. Thanks for your help.

Answer:Sign in asks for password every time

Hi @lilaclily, Welcome to HP Forums! I have read your post and wanted to help. I understand that the laptop asked you to enter password every time when you signed in. Do you want to remove the password since you are the only one user? If you're using a local account with a password, you can delete the password to sign in without one, but we don't recommend it. Enter sign in the search bar in the start menu, and then tap or click Sign-in options.Under Password, tap or click Change.Verify the current password for your local account.Leave the New password, Reenter password, and Password hint fields blank, tap or click Next, and then tap or clickFinish.Now, you (or anyone) can sign in to your local account and use your PC without a password.Let me know if it helps. If this helps you to reach a solution, please click the "Accept as Solution" button down below in this message. If you wish to say "thanks" for my effort to help, click the "thumbs up" to give me Kudos.  Regards,

Whenever it starts there are some windows asking whether to run certain Intel tray apps. How to disable that? Just in case, turning off UAC has no effect.

Hi Funnycat,

Try using the task scheduler,

http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/13...eate-task.html

Create task,
General tab, Give task a name, put tick in box Run with highest privileges
Triggers tab, New, Begin the task at Log on
Actions tab, New, Action start a Program, Browse to program .exe then click on ok, ok Done

Remember to disable the other autostart methods

My new Toshiba Satellite P870 Starts with Screen Flickering 1,2 or 3 times with every start, exactly AFTER Toshiba, Leading Innovation Logo starts.

Anybody can help?

Thank You In Advanced!

Answer:Re: Satellite P870 - screen flickers for some time after Toshiba splash screen

I don?t know how it looks like but something like this should not happen. If you have brand new notebook contact your local dealer as soon as possible, explain the situation and ask for replacement.

If you are not happy with your product you can get replacement. In my country customers have 14 days time to do this.

Vista asks for password everytime it get locked.

How could I set it to a longer time until it asks again for the password?

TNX :-)

Answer:Q: Change time lag till it asks for password.

Are you talking about having to provide a password after the activation of the screensaver? You can change the amount of time that your system has to be idle before the screensaver activates, and you can also select whether or not you need to enter your password to resume.

If you are on about the Win + L method of locking, then if the account you are locking has a password, you must provide it when resuming.

It a dell 2200 inspiron laptop. I loaded win XP from an OEM disk, which came with the laptop. Everything was fine until yesterday when I booted the computer up. It asks me to activate windows each time I log on, why is this? Do I just put in the same key that I entered when I loaded XP the first time? Funny thing is, even though I see the prompt to activate windows, when I go to start, run and type msoobe oobe /a, it says windows is already activated.

Do I need to activate windows, or what do I need to do to make that reminder go away?

Answer:asks to activate windows each time I logon

Hi,

I use a JP Morgan Chase website multiple times a day. I normally only have to reregister my machine if i clean out the cookies. The website setting is set to "keep this machine registered"...so for the past three years I did not have to re-register every single time I try to log on to the website.
Recently, even after I register my workstation ( and i do not clean out history or cookies), log out and try to go back in, it asks me to register again (as if i was using a new machine)? I am not sure if this is some sort of Internet Explorer Setting tha I may have changed accidentally. I do not think its the website due to the fact that my empoloyees do not get the prompt to reregister their machines.
Its just quite a bit of a hastle to have to reregister, considering i have to wait for an email from the Website for the activation code. I do this at least 5 times a day.
Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks!
 

Answer:Website asks to Activate computer each time

In Internet Explorer, go to Tools, Internet Options, Privacy Tab, set the slider to Medium ( which is the default value unless you changed it )
