Can't access drivers for Satellite A660 on Toshiba support website

Question: Can't access drivers for Satellite A660 on Toshiba support website


I believe i need to update video drivers on my Toshiba laptop (it's a Satellite A660, but I don't think that's relevant).

I have tried to use the downloads page on the Toshiba website: It gives me no response, no list of products, nothing, whether I try to use the drop-down lists or enter my laptop's part number directly.
And it does the same using another laptop too.

Am I doing something wrong?
Is there another way to get to product downloads?

Preferred Solution: Can't access drivers for Satellite A660 on Toshiba support website

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.)

I downloaded the following drivers (for my Notebook; Satellite A10-163 Model number : PSAA9E)


I unzipped each of these and can only find a PROUnstl.exe file, which un-installs any existing drivers; I cannot find a "Setup.exe" or anything that sets up either of my wired or wireless networking cards. I am using Windows XP Home edition.

Is there anywhere I can get a driver that has an easier to use "install.exe" file in it?

Is there anyone that can help me over-come this problem?

Answer:LAN Drivers from Toshiba Website - won't work - Satellite A10-163


First of all, all drivers which are available on the Toshiba driver page should works properly. I?m 100% sure about this. If you don?t find any setup.exe or install.exe in the driver folder so you have to use another driver installation procedure.
Go to the device manager, choose the LAN card and install the driver. Please choose the driver form the driver download place.

i have Toshiba Satellite A200-1GM (PSAECE-02C00DPL) serial no. 97303299K.
I would like to refresh my Windows. I reinstalled to Win 7 - 32bit.
My problem is, when i try enter my notebook model in Toshiba driver search, there is no matches... for any windows.
Just simple Toshiba deasn't recognise my notebook model...

Can someone help me...

It's radiculous...

Best regards...

Answer:Satellite A200-1GM - no drivers on official Toshiba website

Your files aren't stored in the main Toshiba files, which probably means Toshiba no longer supports your model. But they are still stored in the listed archives. This is all the files I could find for your device Windows 7 32bit

Important drivers

Firmware: You will need at least one of these but not all, use the one you know you had before the refresh. If you don't know which one you had then use the top one.

I am looking at upgrading my toshiba satellite a660 the manual says only 8gb can be installed is this a main board issue or a bios issue or can I put in 16gb just curious

Answer:Toshiba satellite a660 only 8gb ram????

If the manual says only 8 GB is supported, then that's what you are limited to. The chipset usually determines the limits, but sometimes the mainboard manufacturer/computer manufacturer can limit the amount even further.

Hello guys,

I have the A660-10W and want to download iTune movies in HD
It says I need to have a video driver with HDCP (Support?) but I don't know, nor do I understand what it is.
I would appreciate your help - as you have done extremely well in the past.

Thank you in advance

Answer:Satellite A660-10W with HDCP support


HDCP is a copy protection protocol.
This protocol prevents copying of high-definition movies.
If the system does not support the HDCP you will not be able to send the data to the device (TV, LCD) via HDMI or other ports like DisplayPort or DVI.

Microsoft Vista and Windows 7 use HDCP in computer graphics cards and monitors.
But if you want to watch high definition movies on external TV you have to ensure that both HDMI ports on TV and notebook would support the HDCP.

But it seems that Sat A660-10W does not support the HDMI port and therefore you will not be able to watch the HDCP protected HD movies on external monitors.

My view after using different laptop, I cannot believe anymore that Toshiba is good quality.

My own view on this issue:

For using it 2 years, I had to change the memories, the hard drive and the battery. This is ridiculous because I paid this laptop more that 1000 pounds to avoid this type of issue.

Hi everyone.

I've spent a harrowing couple of days fixing a problem with an audio feed to a TV via an HDMI cable.

The computer is a Toshiba satellite laptop A660 part number PSAW3A-07T00R and the television is a Panasonic ET5 flatscreen LCD unit.

I had almost gotten to the point of re-installing the original working HDD. I had installed a larger hybrid 1 TB unit rebuilt with Win 7 when I read a comment that some manufacturers load their hardware with "bespoke" drivers to "enable" all of the facilities that their hardware will support.

Previously the laptop would quite happily feed both video and audio to the TV, but after the rebuild of the HDD the audio was missing, on the TV, when attached to the TV via an HDMI cable.

When investigating the >Control panel>hardware and sound>manage audio devices options, only the on board RealTek loudspeakers appeared and all attempts to alter this to show the TV audio capability failed.

Finally, I discovered this site

downloaded the graphics and audio drivers and installed them ( I might say they were earlier versions than were currently in use). Upon rebooting, with the TV active, the audio channel of the TV appeared in the audio device options and became the "default" connection condition which worked without trouble. I suspect that other manufacturer's hardware drivers would be accessible at the same site wi... Read more

First of all I have to say that you can ignore such driver update messages. If you don?t notice any problems you can still use the old drivers.

For power saving you should use the Eco-Mode on your notebook. As far as I know Satellite A660 has an Eco key and if you press it, Eco Utility will start and save energy.

Furthermore the preinstalled Windows 7 from Toshiba is already configured for best compatibility and good performance. You can install and do what you want, everything is configured properly. :)

Answer:Satellite A660-17M - Need drivers for Windows 7 32bit

Hi buddy,

The problem is that most new notebooks only support windows 7 64bit because they are delivered with 4GB or more RAM capacity and 32bit support only up to 3.2GB.

I think you must search the drivers yourself. Just check some similar Toshiba models they support Windows 7 32bit. As far as I know Satellite L500 provides Windows 7 32bit drivers and tools where you can also get Value Added Package for example.

If you find all drivers some feedback would be great. :)

I've bought a Toshiba Laptop (model A660-11M) with a Nvidia GT330M and I tried to update the driver with the newest verde release (258.96).
The installation ended without problem, but when I restart the laptop the control on brightness (via fn+f6 or f7 and the windows slider on the dedicated menu of the control panel) are gone.

Or rather, If I try to modify the brightness level via this two way, the slider and the fn keys work togheter (if I push the fn+f6 buttons the windows slider comes down but the brightness is not affected) but with no effects on the screen brightness.
The only way that works is to set the brightness via Nvidia Control Panel.

Obviously with the preinstalled driver (189.16), all works perfectly. I tried also to uninstall, clear with DriverCleaner and reinstall the new driver, but with no better result...

I hope someone could help me...

Answer:Satellite A660-11M: Nvidia drivers (258.96) brightness control on GT330M

This issue seems to be discussed already in this thread:

It seems that the original driver from nVidia is not fully compatible with the FN buttons which controls the brightness?
However, the Toshiba driver works as it should so it?s recommended to stay with Toshiba drivers since these drivers are pretested and compatible with other apps?.

Furthermore the nVidia drivers don?t support the GPU overheating protection and the usage of such drivers is only at own risk?

Hi everyone.

first of all:

I use the default-pre installed s.o. (w7-64) and nothing more is installed on it except toshiba's software.

The problem is that, while i use default installed driver everything works fine, if i update nvidia drivers, i can't change brightness anymore.

can't change it through fn+f6/f7
can't change it in windows through "adjust brightness"
neither changing power management profile.

(i can set different levels of brightness, but nothing happens!)(i hope you understand what i mean)

the only way to do it it's using nvidia control panel.

even if use windows utility to update drivers windows downloads the same drivers and there's the problem.

the only way to fix it is reinstall the default driver.

but i don't wanna use prehistoric driver!

how can i do to fix that? is it a known issue?

thank you for your help!

Answer:Satellite A660-11M: Display brightness does not work using nVidia drivers


Since the nVidia drivers from nVidia page are not pretested and not certified by Toshiba, it?s not recommended to use such drivers.
You should use the Toshiba graphic drivers because the drivers are modified and created for notebook usage. Such drivers support own overheating protection which protect the graphic chip.

I think the issue has nothing to do with Toshiba FN button software because the brightness cannot be assigned even using Win 7 power management?

So I recommend going back to the Toshiba original drivers!

I desperately need the Service Pack 1, and cant just download it from the Microsoft download centre either, because the info says to make sure drivers are up to date.

Can anyone point me in the direction to where I can download the correct Intel Graphics driver. I looked at the Intel site, but its just way over my head.

Hoping someone can help

Answer:Re: Satellite A660 - Intel Graphic drivers & Service Pack 1 installation

According notebook specification your notebook was delivered with Win7 HP 64bit.

Have you installed this original recovery version that includes all drivers?
Anyway, in the past I have recovered several Toshiba machines and after some period of time under Windows update was always offered Service Pack 1 as option for Microsoft Windows update. Maybe not at the beginning of usage notebook with clean preinstalled OS. Wait a bit.

To be honest it is not known to me that it depends on preinstalled display driver and I?ve never made such experience.

If you are unable to get them from Toshiba ( I am sure you must be able to if you persist, maybe even chatting with one of their service techs) you could try the free site You must register to use the site but it is free.

I have re-installed to Windows XP and am having issues that will be resolved if I can download the drivers.

My camera stopped working. I decided to uninstall it and load the latest driver. On the Lenovo website for my system, the camera description is: USB 2.0 PC Camera Driver for Windows 7 (32-bit and 64-bit), Vista (32-bit and 64-bit) and XP - ThinkCentre M70z, M90z My camera is part of my system and not plugged into a USB port.  Is this the right driver?

HERE is the link.
It is packed with file *TC20043100A.exe* (if there is an error decompressing checksum CRC). Windows 7 also can not run TC20043100A.exe so I can not install *Value Added Package*

Answer:Satellite L - VAP on Toshiba website is corrupted


Are you sure that the file is corrupted?
I have even downloaded the file and I didn?t get any CRC error. It was successful to unzip the file so I can?t notice any problem.

I have a laptop TOSHIBA SATELLITE M70-169
I wanted to upgrade my drivers, so I connected myself on the TOSHIBA site.
The problem is that my laptop is not referenced on the site, there are well *M70-168* and *M70-170* but not *M70-169*
I tried the reconnaissance by serial number, result: NOT RECOGNIZED

I tested the autod?tection, and there too, the result was: NOT RECOGNIZED.
I am astonished that my laptop is not recognized on the official site of TOSHIBA, whereas I had bought it in a store.

Somebody can tell me if he had the same problem, and give me the indications in order to upgrade my laptop?

Thank you

Answer:Satellite M70-169 is not recognized on Toshiba website

Satellite M70 is pretty old notebook model and I can imagine that auto detection tool doesn?t work properly. Your notebook is European model and has part number PSM70E (very important for search).
Anyway you can find all drivers or updates manually. Please do it as follow:

Visit Toshiba download page under
Choose follow options:
Product type - ARCHIVE
Product series - SATELLITE M SERIES
Model - SATELLITE M70 (PSM70)
Short Model No - PSM70E
Operating system - your OS

And all available stuff will be listed there.

If you have more questions let us know.

Sorry if this is an obvious question but: am I right in feeling that there are newer drivers for my T440s on the Lenovo Support page than are being offered to me when I run System Update? If so, how come?Are these betas? Should I be watching the Support page as well as running Update? Just want to stay sensibly up to date. Thanks for any help you guys can offer.

Answer:newer drivers on Support website than on System Update?

In my experience, System Update can lag behind a model's driver matrix. I routinely look at what TVSU is offering me and then go look at the matrix for comparison. If a TVSU-offered package for something I want matches the matrix, then I let it install it. Generally speaking, though, I'm pretty conservative about driver updates.
Lastly, I don't think I've ever seen a true beta driver in the matrices for my ThinkPads.
Hope this helps.

A couple of days ago I received my new brand Toshiba A660 12t. Everything is perfect except the fan noise. It is loud for me especially that I often use the laptop in the library. For simple tasks the fan works between 59% and 67%. I tried different things from playing with the power settings to upgrading the Bios and the graphic card but nothing has changed.

Now I want to turn it back and change it with the Toshiba A660-1FL. Why this one? Both laptops have the same characteristics and the same price except the Graphic card and the CPU. mine comes with Nvidia 330-m and I5-430. on the other side, the A660-1FL comes with the Intel integrated GMA HD and the I5-460.
I thought may be the Graphic card is the reason!!!
Does anybody know if the fan noise will be reduced if I will use a less dedicated graphic card? Shall I change? in this case is the GMA HD a good graphic card?
If somebody is using a Toshiba A660-1FL, could you please tell me if the fan is also loud?

I appreciate your help. Thanks in advance

Answer:Satellite A660-12T / A660-1FL - Which one has less fan noise?


nVidia GPU is powerful graphic card and mostly such cards are designed for gaming.
The Intel GPU is also a good graphic chip but it?s not powerful as the nvidia chip.
The nVidia chip would allow running apps much smother but it creates more heat.

This would affect the cooling fans which mean that fans would run faster and often.
So theoretically the notebook with Intel GPU should be a little bit quite.

Hi all,

I bought a Tosh laptop a year ago and I like to keep the programs and services up to date.
When I visited the site the other day I notice my laptop model is now discontinued...someone else in the family just got a new Tosh laptop and I noticed many of the basic Toshiba programs and services are much newer than mine.

Does anyone know how long we get updates for? End of warranty? End of production?
I've downloaded a similar, newer Tosh's programs and they work great - I don't know why my previous Tosh software updaters didn't give them to me. Of course some newer models will have some newer features which won't be compatible with mine.

Has anyone else noticed this about their laptop?
Very quickly after purchase, the software support dries up...

I attended the Windows 7 launch and was given a free Ultimate disk which is just lying there.
I'm thinking about slipstreaming the newer updates into it, and I notice I can add newer driver updates. I'm beginning to think my laptop's software has reached the end of the line for backup and recovery - maybe slipstreaming a retail Windows disk with newer Toshiba programs and drivers would be better for future reinstallation. What do other users think/do?


Answer:Re: Driver and Toshiba Tool support after Satellite has been discontinued


You can always download the drivers, tools and utilities for Toshiba notebooks even if the notebook is not more available on the market.
Even the drivers for very old Toshiba notebooks are read for download.

You have to visit the Toshiba European driver page and have to select Archive in the first category ?Product type?.
Drivers for older notebook series are moved to the Archive and can be found there.

I'm a bit confused with the 'support software' that came with my new laptop. It doesn't seem to be clear what the various programs are for.

Then I looked at SERVICE STATION which also seems to be for updates.
Is there some duplication in all this?

Can someone recommend which of these programs needs to be active?

Any guidance would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks.

Answer:Question about Toshiba support software for Satellite C850

I can imagine that you are a bit confused about that.
Both of them are nice applications especially Tempro. More about Tempro and Tempro service you can read on

To be honest I don?t use any of them and both are removed from my system. Generally speaking when you get new notebook you will have perfect configured OS and everything will work stabile so some not so important updates will not be needed at all. Both applications run in the background and just slow down the system.

It can happen that system somehow cannot identify notebook model but for drivers download it is just important to know first part of the part number.

Answer:Satellite L500 - Cannot find notebook model on Toshiba support page


Are you using the Tempro tool in order to register the notebook?
If yes, then you should update this tool to the latest version v3.33

Check this:
+Why does TEMPRO not accept my serial number as being valid?+

Otherwise the L500-158 belongs to the PSLJ3E series and all drivers can be found on the Toshiba European driver page:

I have just been looking at the services running on my computer, and there are two which i am not sure whether i use or if i can set them to disabled if i don't use them.

Toshiba Navi support service......
Toshiba Smart log service......

Any information on what these services actually do
I did do a search on these, and could not find any information , mostly people sending hijack this logs in.

While i am here the other two services are

Toshiba Optical Disc drive servive....
Toshiba Power saver.......

Do i need all these services running, and if possable could anybody give me any links to find out information on these services.

Thankyou all.

Answer:Satellite L300 - Disabling of Toshiba services: Navi support & Smart log


Why do you want to disable these services? I mean the services will be installed with the Toshiba tools and I think they are necessary for the properly working Toshiba functions like FN keys, Flash Cards, etc.

On my Qosmio notebook with Vista I have the same services but I don?t find more informations about these in services.msc

I can give an example: Few days ago I also thought about disable some Toshiba services. I did it and restart the notebook and what happens? The FN keys and Flash Cards are not working anymore. So I activated the services and then all was working again.

So I think the better way is you disable some other services. With Google you should find enough hits. ;)

Odd issue. Toshiba website doesn't recognize my serial number. Has anyone encounted that? I assume alpha characters are upper case. Serial number is 9 characters long with alpha characters at either end of string.
Has anyone had problems registering their laptops?

Answer:Toshiba website doesn't recognize my serial number of Satellite A215-S7428

Wait a moment my friend. On which Toshiba website you try to do this? I hope you do not try to register non-European notebook model on European support page.

Am I right or you really try to do this? As far as I know you have an US notebook model.

Toshiba Satellite a25-s207. Windows XP Professional.

how do I lower the brightness without the use of function keys?
I do not have the startup disks or anything that my computer originally came with six years ago. I have recently reformatted my computer. I've searched on the internet for drivers only finding rather fishy websites. I have looked extensively through the toshiba website ( such as through this link
only finding some driver support. I realize this product doesn't get updates any more, but I'm trying to figure out what bios and firmware options this thing needs or even if I'm saying that right. I can't even access the function keys to lower the brightness.
If there is something more I should post please let me know. Thank you very much.

OS Name Microsoft Windows XP Professional
Version 5.1.2600 Service Pack 2 Build 2600

Answer:Toshiba Satellite A25-s207, recently reformatted, needing firmware support...Possibly

The big mistake that you made before you formatted the hard drive and did a fresh install of Windows XP Pro in your Toshiba Satellite A25-S207 laptop was not writing down the descriptions in the Device Manager for:

Display Adapters

Network Adapters

Sound Video And Game Controllers

and then obtaining and burning off to a CD-R the current drivers for them.


I checked the Toshiba link that you provided. You'll have much better luck refining your search with Windows XP instead of Windows XP SP2/SP3, and then selecting Display and Sound and LAN and Mouse and downloading the drivers from there.


Don't worry about BIOS or firmware updates. They're usually not needed, and you can render your laptop or the drives inoperable by installing the wrong ones or if the install goes wrong.

The issue I'd like to bring up to your attention is due to the availablity of chipset and graphics drivers on intel website for laptop chipset family 852/855 GM/GME, much recent than the corresponding files available on this site, released by the end of 2003.

My question is: is it mandatory to use oem provided drivers or can we use those ones, assumed that a pc (I hold a SA-40 model) comply with posted requirements (as it is my case as far as I can see)?
And if so, why do they not show up on this website?


Answer:Satellite A40: Should I use only Toshiba drivers or can we use others?


you can use the drivers from every source you want to.
But be aware of that drivers for examlpe from Intel are designed for desktop PCs.
So they will not work on a notebook or can even damage it.
But there are unofficial pages on the web, which provide modified drivers for notebooks.

Be aware of there is no guarantee that this drivers will work, and you also don't have warranty in case of damage.

Hi! I have a Toshiba Satellite A500 15N. I have just installed Windows 7 Home Premium today and i have been looking for drivers all over the place.

I have been on the website but still can't get it. Could someone please help me find a website where i could download all the drivers needed?

If i could download them all at once that would be class!

Answer:Toshiba Satellite Drivers Help.

Laptop Driver Downloads:

Above is Toshiba web site. Enter your OS on the right side of above page. The easiest would be to click the big red button on the left of the page and let it find your drivers.
