Satellite C670/C670D Recovery Media

Question: Satellite C670/C670D Recovery Media

HDD on laptop had died, no recovery media created. Tried ordering from Toshiba website but get following message

"...no recovery media can be ordered, because it comes not from the region of Toshiba Europe, or i's to old for this service..."

Laptop was purchased 2014 from the UK - yes t's old but so is the user.

Can not find a "contact us" section on the website where I can ask the question.

What are my best alternate options?

TIA

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.)

Answer:Satellite C670 - Recovery Media Creator do'nt launch! Error link

Toshiba recovery media creator cannot be downloaded from Toshiba download page. This tool is integrated in recovery image.
I really don?t understand how this exe file can disappear for no reason. With clean preinstalled recovery image it must work properly.

If you didn?t create recovery DVD there is only one way to get it work again: you must install whole OS using HDD recovery installation. After doing this you will have ?factory settings? again and this tool will work properly again.

How to use HDD recovery installation you can find on http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/kb0/HTD1303440001R01.htm

Hello,

I recently bought Recovery Disc's for my laptop.

However after the first disc finishes it tells me to insert the second recovery medium wich should contain the next part of the recovery (15535xsp9.swm).

Answer:Satellite C670D-19E - Recovery procedure cannot be finished

Hi

Problem is that there is nothing you can do about it and it is not possible to ?force? recovery procedure to finish properly. Either it works or not.
I presume something goes wrong with recovery disc creation and my opinion is that you must contact Arvato if you have order it there and explain the situation. They should send you new recovery disc.

I have a problem and I need your help.

I have a Satellite C670D-121 notebook in the original hardware configuration.

After a message about a process (my 10 years old son told me. But I haven't seen this message), he should press the button OK and then the notebook was restarted.
But the restart did not work anymore.

Also the recovery with the recoveryfunction of the notebook was not possible.
Now I have ordered Recovery UDF's and the restoration of the notebook is possible.

But in the moment when the UDF has to be removed and the notebook has to be restarted, I see the letters "Starting Window", the monitor is getting black and I only see the cursor.

After a short time, the cursor jumps to the upper left corner. And then comes the window whith an error message. (s. picture)

I have ordered an new recovery UDF = the same error!
Support couldn't help me.
Start Linux from CD, the notebook works fine.

So a HDD and memory error can be excluded.
[s. picture|http://www.dienagelschmiede.com/win.jpg]

Can anybody help me please?
Thank you.

Answer:Satellite C670D-121 - Problems with recovery of Win7

Hi
I?m not quite sure about this error message but it looks like it?s related to memory I/O (input / output) issue.

You mentioned a flashing cursor in the left upper corner.
Such symptom is already known to me. I had such flashing cursor problem too and in my case it was related to wrong or faulty memory and HDD.
I had to replace the HDD firstly following by memory modules in order to fix this issue.

From my point of few your issue might be related to the faulty memory since the I/O message is related to the memory problems too.

You said that Linux runs properly using the Live CD?
I guess you booted the notebook using such live cd but did not install the system on the HDD.
Well, I don?t think that this might be a clear proof that the HDD or RAM is OK.

In my opinion these parts should be checked?

Unfortunately you will not be able to start recovery image installation. Data saved on USB cannot be used on that way. It must be bootable device created by ?Toshiba recovery disc creator?
You can install recovery image using recovery disc only.

If you don?t have it you can order new one.

I've been trying to recover Satellite C670D-11K using new Toshiba-supplied factory system recovery discs. Both discs do their thing until the very end when I get these messages:

Error c/program files\mcafee\virusscan/dat\000.0\avvscan.dot (error=1117)
Error restoring image
request could not be performed beacuse of I/O device error
Error Image x could not apply win 7 V:\\HDDRecovery\SWIMG\15434XSP.SWM Index 2 from HDD to C

Only option after this point is to press any key and I get the blank Toshiba screen

When I switch laptop back on I get message 'boot mgr is missing'. I have tried the recovery disc a couple of times since and things don't get any better. In fact I just get a big black screen with cursor after

Suggestions welcomed please? I thought buying the recovery discs would be a simple solution but should I give in and go to a professional now?

Thanks, Paul

Answer:Satellite C670D-11K - Toshiba recovery discs is not working

I presume you use recovery discs that you have created using Toshiba recovery disc creator tool, right?
It sounds stupid now but something went wrong and I?m afraid recovery discs are useless now. Fact is that you cannot change anything or force notebook to install recovery image properly.

Only thing that you can test is - http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/kb0/HTD4103KB0000R01.htm
I don't think this will help but you can test it anyway.

Now you have two options:
-to order original recovery disc from Toshiba
-to install own OS version using Microsoft installation disc

Hi. I have a C670 which I had problems starting up. I tried the back up discs I had created when i got the machine but they failed to work. I had an extended warranty with the company I had bought the laptop from and I sent it back to them to get the problem sorted. As the back up discs didn't work, all they have done is reinstall windows and I've lost all the bundled software and the HDD recovery system on the D drive which come on the machine.Lesson to learned here I think.

If I was to buy a set of toshiba back up discs would this take the machine back to its 'out of the box' condition.

Thanks in anticipation

Answer:Satellite C670d-11k - can i replace the CPU?

Hi

The chipset is AMD A50M so you can use ONLY AMD CPUs which are supported by chipset.
But there is still open question if the BIOS would support the new CPU.

Since the CPU upgrades are not official supported by any notebook manufacturer, you will not find such info anywhere....
So such updates are your own risk and nobody would be able to say if the notebook would run stable after such CPU upgrade.

According notebook specification your notebook was delivered with preinstalled Win7 64bit Home premium so if graphic card is not installed properly I presume you have installed own OS version, right?

Hello everybody,

after the update of my Satellite C670D-125 to windows 10 the function-key (fn) is permanently active. That means that I have to press the fn key when I want to use the standard key-funktion (e.g. the numbers above the letters). Only the numbers wouldn't be a great problem, but also for the space-key and the esc-key I have to press fn in order to use the standard-function (space and escape ).

This behaviour also happens now in the bios-setup! So it seems to me like the update switched an integrated keyboard option.

In other threads and forums the (re-)installation of the "Value Added Package" is recommended, but there is no option for my notebook concerning the fn-functionality and the de- and reinstallation had no effect. An other option was to change the setting in the bios setup, but there is no menu entry in my bios, which deals with this issue... It seems that I have a simplified bios (I guess, because there are not many options for setting up the hardware) and I still installed the latest bios-update from the toshiba support side.

Has anybody the same issue or an idea how I can solve the problem?

Thank you very much

The reinstallation of VAP would be useful but only in case your would still use Windows 7

Since Windows 8 the VAP has been replaced by Toshiba System driver but the point is that your C660 isn’t listed as Windows 10 supported model and therefore there Win 10 drivers are not available for this unit.

Anyway, you could try to install the Win 10 system driver released for other notebook series… I’m not sure if it will work but I guess this is the last resort to get it fixed running Win 10…

I have a C670-19K for a while now
http://www.toshiba-greece.com/suppor...oduct/laptops/ ( Greek web site for info about the laptop )

Have upgrade it a bit : 8gb ram and new ssd things are running little bit faster now, bought a cooling pad 17 inch ( 2x160mm fans spin at 1000rpm ) that doesn't do much work on Toshiba armor, have clean and change the thermal paste over time at CPU and GPU, have clean as well the fan + the thermal metal body part , battery have died over time haven't replace that !

I recently made a format ( yesterday ) and today decide to have a further look in my gaming section to see if everything is alright, i have a application to counts the temperature to make sure i`m running good without issues when gaming or multitasking
Before the format i have seen numbers up to 99c with out making the laptop BBQ, but for safety reasons it was turning off which fine for me
After format when it reach 84~85c computer is turning off for safety reasons !!

Am i missing a specific driver that i didn't add ? And which is that ? Can u provide a link for this ?

Did have a look at the web
Bios doesn't have adjustment for temperature
Have formatted the laptop sometime ago and it worked fine afterwards
Have installed the drivers from Toshiba web-site in order to run the laptop

Thanks for your time !!

Hi.
My satellite c670 has an i3-2310M as you can see here :
http://www.toshiba.co.il/en/disconti...lite-c670-145/

My question is : I would like to knox if I can upgrade it, which CPU are compatible?
On this list there are lot of CPU with the same socket, but I know that it depends of the motherboard too :
http://www.cpu-upgrade.com/CPUs/Inte...10M_(PGA).html

So, wich CPU are compatible with my laptop?

Thank you.

Hi all,

My Satellite notebook (C670-12x) does not recognize any hard drives (bios startup). I tried with several hard drives. I was wondering if a Bios update would help? Is there a Flash Bios update for CD boot?

I allready tried to convert the Bios driver to an image/bootable CD, but that didn't work.

Thanks in advance,
Gunther

Answer:Satellite C670-12x does not recognize any HDD

I don?t think BIOS update will help. Try to set BIOS to default settings and check it again. If the same happen again it can be that HDD controller is defective.

Hello everyone,

my friend bought a Toshiba Satellite c670d-11r in Germany over a catalogue (Otto to be precise) with Windows 7 Home Premium installed on it,

After a few months he brought it to a Computer shop and service in the Town he lives in to get a fresh installation of Windows. A day ago he came to visit me and complained how slow it was and asked me to install Windows again and that's what i did.

After the installation i asked him about the drivers CD he has no clue where it is or if he even got one so i downloaded all the drivers from the site and installed it on his laptop except the Display Driver.

First i have unpacked in the Appdata path wich was preset but it wouldn't launch after the extraction so i gave in a custom path and tried to run ''Installtb.exe" but again nothing happened so i have decided to run the "Setup.exe" it started the installation of CCC and afther the installation i've checked "Dxdiag" but it still wouldn't recognize the GPU in the display tab as in the previous version of Windows,as a ''Radeon HD 6320'' but as a "Standard Video Card" i have tried everyhing i could come up with but nothing really helped,a bit later i have noticed a clicking noise where i think the HDD should be (right of the touchpad) i thought i broke something but he said he noticed that clicking too a few weeks ago.

I will post the dxdiag log now if that will help.

Answer:Display driver issues and clicking noise with Satellite C670D-11R

Hi

Regarding the HDD clicking noise:
This is nothing unusual? can happen with some kind of HDDs?I own some HDDs (internal and external)? two HDDs produce an clicking noise sometimes? but the HDD run and work properly? so I guess its ok? but nevertheless? if possible, backup the data always?

Regarding the ATI driver:
The notebook belongs to the PSC4AE series.
Choosing the C670D PSC4AE series in driver download form of Toshiba European driver page would show you the compatible driver v8.812.2.2.

You have to download this and unzip the package firstly.
Now you should see the TCA0056800E.exe file.
This file has to be unzipped too?

Now go to device manager and choose graphic card.
Here choose install driver and choose the manual installation procedure. Now point to the folder where you have unzipped the display driver.
As far as I know the driver files for Win 64bit are placed in driver -> display folder
Usually the Windows OS should pick up the right files in order to install the driver?

That?s it?

Answer:Processor Upgrade on Satellite C670-17M

> My question is, Can I upgrade my current processor with all of processors on that list?

Probably yes.
But fact is that nobody would be able to answer this question since such CPU upgrade isn?t officially supported. This means that notebook manufacturers don?t provide any information regarding such upgrade and compatibility.

You can try such upgrade at your own hand and hope that BIOS would be able to handle such new CPU.

Hello Support,

Quite recently I have noticed that the clock / time (displayed in the system tray) of my Satellite C670-12P is going crazy, typically slowing down a bit, but sometimes jumping backwards in time by one hour or even more ! The biggest leap was more than 3 hours backwards... As you can imagine the OS (Windows 7 Home Premium) doesn't like that much and I've had to suffer possibly related hangs.

After some googling it seems that it might be related to an aging CMOS battery (which i've never replaced indeed). After some more youtubing I have learned how to unmount the keyboard under which the CMOS battery would probably be located (as seen on the similar Satellite C series' video). To my greatest surprise, however, unmounting the keyboard of the laptop only revealed a "hole" in the plastic board with some connector, but not the expected CMOS battery -- see attached picture I took and red circle where I was expecting it.

Am I going down the wrong path here ? How can I make sure that it is a weak CMOS battery the root cause of the clock / time going crazy ?
Once that's proven, where is it actually located in the C670-12P and can I easily replace it ? I've seen that sometimes its soldered on the motherboard!

Thanks in advance for your advice and assistance !

Does the Satellite C670 14P have a line in option through the mic/headphone sockets.

The problem is am trying to record a dj mix using a recording program but each time a recording is done it sounds like it is being recorded through the laptop speakers and not through the soundcard. I have my mixer plugged into the laptop using a phono to 2.5 jack lead I have both the mic and the headphone sockets but either make any difference to the sound.

Can someone please help me.

Hi buddy,

This has nothing to do with customer support.

I think you have set the wrong keyboard language. If you press Shift + i you should get the @ sign?

Important is that you change the language from EN (US) to EN (UK). You can do this if you navigate to control panel > clock, language and regional > regional and language options. Go to keyboards and languages tab and then click change keyboards. Click Add and select the keyboard layout you would like to add.

I used to play normally. Now your computer is overheating!
the laptop is on the stands with fans!!!

Answer:Satellite C670-188 shut down playing WOW

Hi

It seems high temperature causes this unexpected shut down.
Did you use the notebook on the table?
There should be enough free space to keep the air circulating.

Furthermore you should check if the cooling fans are not clogged by dust or debris.
This might affect the air circulation too? I clean my fans from time to time and this keeps the temperature low.

What graphic card driver do you use?
You should use the Toshiba one because such driver is modified for mobile usage? the other drivers don?t support an GPU overheating protection and this might cause such unexpected shutdowns.

Why Toshiba did so not updated the graphics card?

Answer:Display driver update for Satellite C670

Drivers update for mobile machines is pretty limited and it is big difference between mobile machines and desktops.
Due to specific design and cooling system that machine has GPU must be ?under control?. With new driver GPU can offer more performance but result is more heat that can be dangerous for notebook?s hardware.

This is the reason why notebook manufacturers don't offer such updates and offer just adapted display drivers. If you try to download driver from GPU manufacturer directly there is always a indication to use driver from notebook manufacturer?s support page.

For me it sounds like the keyboard would be faulty.
The point is that if the USB keyboard is OK then the issue cannot be related to the software settings.
So it has to be hardware fault.

Hi there!

I helped my neighbour to find a new laptop, and the whole setup and startup.

We ordered a C670-11Q and it works really well, theres just one annoyance.
The disc makes some loud clicking noises, not like a dying or working disc. It's the same sound as when you turn of a disc, just much louder. I guess it's the "disc reading arm" that goes into it's safe position.

I don't know if this laptop has a shock sensor to do this? The laptop was sitting flat on the table, and there where NO vibrations while it's doing it. There are no clicks while under load, but they occur randomly while idling or normal surfing/writing.

I also checked power saving options and disabled them to turn of the disc, no help.
This also seemed weird, because the clicks often occur several times in a row. But it definitely does it more when running on battery.

I'm running the newest BIOS and drivers from the support area (as of yesterday).
The disc is set to performance mode, i didn't test battery saving - should i?

And no, the disc hasen't taken any beating. I was the first person to turn it on.

The drive is from Hitachi, i ran their analysis - no errors.

Any help is greatly appreciated :o)

One of my notebook?s HDD makes such noise too.

I?m not exactly sure why but I think also that this is the disks head which moves into save position.

However, I think that this is not really a malfunction since the notebook runs pretty well and I didn?t notice any problems with the HDD or the files? but I created a backup of my files? just to be safe ? you know?

Both replacements have been returned to where they were purchased and been tested and found to be working fine, I am now at a loss at what to do next...

I don't really understand what could be wrong that both replacements didn't work but my original works fine....surely if there was an issue with the connector my screen wouldn't work either?

Answer:Satellite C670 screen replacement problems

Hi

As far as I know there are different Satellite C670 series.
I found some details regarding the PSC3SE, PSC3NE, PSC3LE, PSC3QE sub-models.

It looks that the LCD module 17.3" W HD+ (1600 x 900px) uses a LED backlight as the light source.
So you should be sure that you are using the right one.

I don?t think that the display controller on the motherboard would be faulty because in such case the original display would not work too.

The LCD display and motherboard are connected by inverter cable, inverter board and
LVDS cable. You should make sure the LVDS cable is firmly connected to motherboard.
If the connection is loose, reconnect firmly and restart the C670 notebook.

In the HWSETUP there is no option as well

I would really welcome any suggestions. Thanx for your time.

Hi,

I got the same problem over the previous months when I play Football Manager 2011 on my Toshiba laptop.

The game needs a lot of CPU usage at some time (when I move step ahead, CPU and game create other teams results and create next news and so on) and it breaks after 1-2 hours of playing.

It gets louder and louder and thats all!
PC restarts automathically and I lost my time useless!

It might be overheating processor but I get this problems only while playing this game.
I can forget to play while listening to some music from Youtube or other source or having Skype chat in the background, then it remains only for couple of minutes and it restarts PC again and again.

Whats wrong ? Overheat or anything else ?
Maybe I just need to reinstall whole Windows or game (FM 2011) ?

I use: Toshiba C670-105 / Intel Cor i3 2,53 GHz, 4 GB RAM, Win 7 Home Premium, 64-bit SP1, 300 GB HDD, DirectX10, NVIDIA GeForce 315M

My savegame is currently about 180 MB. And of course my laptop is above of minimal requirements to play this game.

Any hints ?

Answer:Satellite C670-105 unwanted restart while playing some game

> Whats wrong ? Overheat or anything else?
Well, I think nobody would be able to say exactly why the unit shuts off without any further investigation.
Generally the notebook could power OFF due to high temperature and high temperature is mostly the reason for unwanted automatic shuts downs.

Did you ever clean the notebook?s cooling fans in the past?
No?! Probably the dust and debris inside the cooling modules prevent the fans from running with best performance and cause high temperature which leads to the shut down.

I would recommend you to use an compressed air spray in order to get rid of dust. But sometimes such cooling modules need to be cleaned professionally.
But try the compressed air spray firstly.

I have put a I7-2720 into my C670 and everything is working well. I had to use external cooling fans to keep the temp down but Ihad planned for that.

I'm just wondering if I should update my bios from the standard 1.40 that's recommended so that I can fully use all the features of a I7 qm CPU.

Thanks for any help

Answer:Re: Satellite C670 upgraded to I7-2720qm, BIOS update?

Hello

As far as I know Toshiba doesn?t support BIOS update and BIOS update has nothing to do with your update. BIOS update is designed to fix some issues or offer some additional options but it has nothing to do with CPU upgrade.

I hope everything will be OK with your notebook in the future. Be careful how do you use it. I presume that you know that after CPU upgrade every hardware failure and repair you must pay on your own.

Hi all,

I made an upgrade to Windows 10 but after that my satellite notebank C670 has booting problems. It's always after Windows updates were installed. It shows the Win logo followed by a blue screen. After repeated switching on and off I get again to the login screen for the password. Have Windows 10 already reinstalled because I didn't come to the login screen anymore. But problems are still there only with switching on and off attempts it works. But this is not a solution. Have you any ideas - drivers for Win10 or bios? Thanks for help

I have a Toshiba Satellite C670, win7 64bit. I've had it for about a month. Monitor drivers are at the most recent available version.

I've recently noticed a problem with the monitor's gamma settings. On startup, the screen is brighter than it should be. When I go to monitor settings / colour improvements and I change gamma from its default 1.0 to, for instance, 0.9, I see the screen darken (considerably) in 2 distinct but fast steps. Changing the gamma back to 1.0 makes the screen go brighter in one (small) step, and the end result is darker than before I changed anything.

Increasing gamma to 1.1 or 1.2 also gives me a darker result than the "reported" gamma of 1.0 at startup; from my estimation, the gamma at startup is about the same as when I manually set it to 1.3.

However, when I set gamma to, for instance, 0.9, at startup the screen will be back at about 1.3 " real gamma" again. Ofcourse I could shuffle the gamma control back and forth every time I start up my laptop, so that gamma 1.0 is indeed as dark as it should be, but surely I shouldn't have to do this? I use the laptop mainly for photo editing so it's pretty important to my use of the laptop to have correct gamma.

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated!

Kind regards,
Bart

Answer:Satellite C670 - monitor: gamma setting too high on startup

Hi

From my own experience every display supports different properties.
As far as I know monitor manufacturers store gamma, color information inside the monitors which is being used by the graphics card drivers.

For common usage its ok but for people who do imaging there are different tools which helps you to manage such settings.

I recommend you testing an tool called ?QuickMonitorProfile?
Its free and allows you to create the most commonly used working space profiles. It is also possible to create a monitor profile.

On this virtual way we cannot hear it and cannot say if this is normal or not but fact is that HDD produce clicking noise. It is not extremely loud but you can hear it.
Are you sure this noise comes from HDD. Does it click when HDD LED blinks?

Since my problem getting my laptop to boot up I recently tried to use the recovery discs which I made 2 years ago. The first 2 seemed to load but the last one was rejected ( it was a different make DVD). I have copied it on my old Tosh.L 350 but it still does not work. I suspect that copying does not produce an exact duplicate! Is this reasonable?
Does anyone know where I can get the required recovery media and is it the same for any laptop of the same model or is it specific to mine?
After the recent failure of My C850 to boot up I eventually got the message

Recovery

Your PC needs to be repaired.

Required device isn?t connected or can?t be accessed.

Error code: 0xc000000f

I followed some instructions for this so that my PC should boot up from the CD/DVD drive.but when I try this I get the message

PXE-E61 : Media test failure, check cable
followed by
PXE-M0F : Exiting PXE ROM. No bootable device -- insert boot disc and press any key.

Since the only cable attached is to the power supply does the message about the cable mean that either the CD/DVD drive or hard drive are not properly connected?
Can anyone help please.

Answer:Satellite A300D - can't use recovery media

Hi

If you cannot use it contact Arvato where you have order it, explain the situation and ask if you can get new one. I cannot say for sure what the problem is but I can imagine that recovery disc is ?troublemaker?.

What else can be? HDD? I don?t think so.

Hi,

We bought toshiba Satelite pro S500-115, and we are very much dissapointed!!!
In first two months I brought to service three times, because it was freezing up every few hours.
Finally they changed CPU and motherboard.

Then, the major problem appeared.
I couldn't make recovery media before, because of freezing, but now, the official service also deleted the hard drive - just in case....
So, I don't have recovey media, it can't be downloaded, neither the other media from Win7 doesn't accept the number from bellow.

I send the mail for help many times to toshiba headquarters, but they just don't care! I found out that, I must pay extra to get the media - but I allready bought system! This is really shiiit, and I don't suggest to my customers to buy anything from Toshiba.

I really don't like their atitude. they just want to sell, but then they just don't care, *******es!

Answer:Satellite Pro S500-115 - Recovery media

Really sad story mate?
I think you should get in contact with a local ASP in your country.
As far as I know in many (maybe all) European countries you can find Toshiba subsidiary and I think the ASP should be able to forward this to the Toshiba in your country.

Good luck man?

PS: I had some problems with my notebook and my ASP was very helpful. I was very satisfied how the issue has been handled?

Hello


unfortunately i need to recover factory default with the recovery Media (3 DVDs which i created with the "Toshiba Recovery Media Creator" Tool before starting the recovery process).

So i boot the Toshiba Recovery Wizard from the Recovery DVDs and choose "Recovery of factory default software", which starts with copying the files from the Disks.

But it will come to a point when it asks me for a further Disk (DVD 4), which i of cause don't have. And when i checked the 3 REcory Disks i noticed that one was not complety written and one was even empty.
(DVD1: 4,4 GB, DVD2: 709,1 MB, DVD3: empty)

i can't repeat "Toshiba Recovery Media Creator" because the Hard disk is already complety erased.

this is why i aks for recovery media.
is it possible to download an iso image?
