Satellite A100-979: Cannot find Vista 64bit driver for Toshiba buttons

Question: Satellite A100-979: Cannot find Vista 64bit driver for Toshiba buttons


I have a problem to find a driver for the multimedia keys (6 easy keys) on my Satellite A100-979. I have Windows Vista 64-bit and this Notebook should be vista capable. Can somebody help me? Maybe you have an idea, to solve this problem.

Preferred Solution: Satellite A100-979: Cannot find Vista 64bit driver for Toshiba buttons

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.)

Answer: Satellite A100-979: Cannot find Vista 64bit driver for Toshiba buttons

>this Notebook should be vista capable

Of course it?s Vista capable. You have installed the Vista on the Satellite A100-979 and it runs.

You ask for drivers for Vista 64bit version? Well, unfortunately but there is nothing to do!
It should be common that Toshiba does not provide any 64bit drivers; neither for XP nor for Vista. :(

I'm looking for 64-Bit Drivers for Vista for the:

SM2173ALD07 - Software Dial-up modem

I have a Toshiba Satellite A100-049 laptop and can only find 32-Bit Drivers. I've managed to find 64-Bit drivers for pretty much everything else (no thanks to Toshiba). Thanks.

p.s - I've not yet installed Vista 64-Bit so don't know if the 32-Bit Drivers (in that they could be more software than drivers) will work but imagine they won't.

I have a "Toshiba Satellite A100-049" laptop which has the capability to support 4Gb memory (but came with 2Gb) and I am unable to find a few drivers for this on Tosiba's website. I have put a second hard disk into the laptop (so well away from my normal Vista 32-Bit installation) and am testing Windows 7 64-Bit. I currently have 2Gb memory. I have most drivers but need:

* Mass Storage Controller
* Unknown Device - TOS1901
* According to "Action Center" I also need to install "Intel Management Engine Interface". I suspect this is related to the Mass Storage Controller.

I've searched Intel's website but without knowing what chipset etc... my laptop uses, it's like looking for a needle in a haystack.

When I installed Vista 32-Bit I had to install the Value Added Package and Supervisor Password Utlity.
The trouble is while I've managed to find a Value Added Package 64-Bit I cannot find a Supervisor Password Utility 64-Bit.

I understand "Unknown Device - TOS1901" mean Supervisor Password Utility.

Where can I find 64-Bit Drivers for this and also the Mass Storage Controller?
Even if they're for another model (but install fine).


p.s - If I cannot find drivers I'll be sending a letter of complaint to Toshiba for selling a laptop capable of 4Gb Memory but absolutely no way of actually getting this. Toshiba's responce awhile ago (when I asked) was to make do with 3Gb on 32-Bit Windows. It's not exactly satisfac... Read more

Hi all.

I have brand new Notebook A100 and I just replaced win vista by XP.

Nearly all of devices installed inside are operational using appropriate driver (downloaded from this site).

But I can't find driver for Bluetooth. When devicemanager launched, there is unknown device listed, labelled as acpi/tos6205/2&daba3ff&0.

Hello everybody

I have Windows Vista 64-bit installed on my Qosmio F30, but the front operation buttons are not working.
I tried to use the Vista 32-bit configuration drivers but when I press any, I receive the following error :"this function not supported".

So please can any one help me to overcome this problem.


Answer:Qosmio F30: Toshiba control buttons don't work on Vista 64bit


You cannot use these Toshiba control buttons (play, pause, etc) because the necessary drivers are not installed.

You will need a compatible Vista Value Added package but it seems that Toshiba page does not provide the 64bit VAP but only 32bit version.
The problem is that the software for 32bit Vista does not function on Vista 64bit OS.

So in my opinion there is nothing to do at this time

There should be a program that displays on the screen the volume level when I change volume and another one that allows me to use the play, forward, backward or stop buttons either with Medial player or with JetAudio.

Where can I get such a program??

Answer:Satellite A100-787: Need driver to use Control buttons and volume wheel

Do you use the original preinstalled Toshiba image?
The Toshiba Vista image contains all necessary drivers and utilities and using this OS everything should functions.

If you have installed other OS like XP then the XP drivers are necessary.
If I?m not mistaken the volume level screen notification does not appears using XP.

Furthermore if you want to use the Toshiba control buttons you have to install the right drivers like Controls, common modules, etc?
The right installation order is necessary and important. Therefore I recommend checking the installation instruction on the Toshiba download page!

By the way; the control buttons are preconfigured and I don?t think that it could be possible to use it with another players like i.e Jetaudio.

Hello all. I am very new here. By very new I mean this is my first time posting on a Tech forum. I very often search for answers and appears a lot with solutions to practically every question I can think of.
Today I am stumped and running short on time.

My colleague from work, who is quite poor with computers and setting up and stuff, so I told him I would help him by removing Vista from his system and installing windows XP.
I know that this day and age I should be upgrading him to Windows 7, but I dont have that CD.

What I have done is this:

Installed a Windows XP Professional for a DELL onto his Toshiba Satellite A100-033.
I already knew (thanks to forums) that I would need to install the drivers for many of the devices after Windows XP installed. Oh I should mention, When installing XP I deleted the partition that originally hosted Vista, and formatted the drive to NTSF (forgive me if the arconym isnt exactly correct).
After installing XP, I searched Device Manager for the yellow ? marks. I currently have 7 yellows:

- ? Mass Storage Controller
- ? PCI Device
- ? SM Bus Controller
- ? Video Controller

Unfortunately I could not.

Answer:Need to find Toshiba Satellite A100-033 drivers? Do they still exist?

If the PC you are working on was bought with Vista pre-installed on, then installing XP should be ok as far as the hardware is concerned.
You can try a program to automatically do the searching for you, but it's not always 100% correct, and you may be left with a few to find.
This one seems to work fairly well;
You will need the product key that was supplied with the installation disc, to activate windows.
You should be able to get the Video card driver from either Nvidia or AMD (or SIS), from the information in 'Device manager'. the 'update driver' option can work, but sometimes has been known to download an old version of the driver.

I've just upgraded my A100-847 from 2X512GB RAM to 2X2GB RAM. Altogether 4GB, wich is officially supported by this model.
Altough there is no offical x64 support for A100-847, eveyrthing work fine except for the RAM.
Only 3.1GB is recognized in Vista x64. Since the BIOS also sees 3.1GB, I assume it is a problem of an old BIOS.

I've never updated it myself. In BIOS it says it is version 2.0. I tried to download the latest version 6.o from I downloaded the the file from: Iside of it there is a SFX archive S10V600.exe. When I click on it, after the notification to turn off all applications, ther is an error message: "LOADPEDRV.EXE: Failed to start the service." I assume it is because it is not porgrammed for X64 Vista. I also tried to extract the archive, and run WinPhlash.exe (BIOS update WIndows application) which is inside the archive, but there was also some error stating that vista doesn't allow some driver to be installed.

So how can I update BIOS manually?

There is an instruction how to do it via CD-ROM while booting, but the list of folders and files that has to be copied to the CDROM doesn't match the files inside the archive so it's useless.

What can I do to activate whole 4GB?

Answer:Satellite A100-847: Only 3.1GB using VIsta 64bit

It seems like that BIOS Update needs a 32bit version of Windows.

So you either need to:

1) Temporarily install Windows 32bit and update the BIOS
2) Use the DOS version of the BIOS Update on a Floppy Disk (If you cannot download it, an ASP should be able to update it for you for a small fee).

However, maybe there is a chance to get the 64bit drivers? as far as I know some notebook series are equipped with the same devices. Therefore some single drivers should run on the different notebook series too.

You should check some other series where the 64bit drivers are available and try to install it? Maybe you are lucky man.

Answer:Satellite A100 - Can I use the product key from Vista 32bit for Vista 64bit


The product key on the bottom side of the notebook is an OEM key. That means it belongs to the preinstalled Vista version and can?t be used with another version that you can buy on the internet or computer shops.

So if you want another Vista version you have to buy a copy with product key from your local computer shop for example.

My problem is the following: I have a Toshiba A300-1ND notebook, and I installed a 64bit Windows Vista on it. I installed all drivers from the Toshiba support page, including Value Added Package, which makes the media keys work, I think.

My problem is that I can not set up the button on the left edge to turn illumination on and off (like on the pre-installed Windows), instead of muting and un-muting the computer.
I tried to use the button setup utility from within the Toshiba Assist program, but I couldn't manage to get it work.

I would greatly appreciate if someone could help me!

By the way, I was wondering, why does Toshiba ship a notebook with 4GB of system memory and a 32bit operating system which can only use 3GBs of that memory (because of the 512mb video memory I believe)? This does not seem very logical to me.

Why not?! There are many people who want to install Vista 64bit (like you) and then the full 4GB would be in use.

As far as I know you can disable and enable the illumination in BIOS and in Toshiba HWSetup which you could fin in the Toshiba Assist.

Answer:Solved: help to reinstall VISTA OP on toshiba Satellite A100

Reinstalling is sometimes the best and fastest way to sort out a problem, but can also be a major time drain and source of frustration. If you prefer you could detail exactly what problem is prompting you to reinstall, and we could consider addressing that instead.

The process will empty your drive itself, which means that you don't have to do any wiping (unless you want to sell/give away the computer). It also means however that all programs and files on your computer will be lost. Make backups of important files (Documents, pictures, etc) before you reinstall.

Another point to bear in mind if you suspect a Virus caused the problem, is to ensure that you install Anti virus software immediately, before trying to replace your backups.


If you have two disks one will be for the Operating System (Windows) and the other will have Toshiba Software and drivers. Make sure that you use the Operating System Disk.

To use the recovery CD you have to boot from it--basically load its own Operating system which does the work of replacing Windows. You don't put it in while Windows is running--Windows very sensibly protects itself from being overwritten. When your computer first turns on and before you get to Windows, you should see the POST screen. At the bottom it prompts you to press F2 for Setup or F12; you have to press F12. Actually the easiest way is to repeatedly press F12 from the moment you turn it on until you get the menu.

Normally you get all drivers on the Toshiba website but Toshiba does not offer 64bit drivers for all notebooks.

I have a Sattelite Pro A200 lap top and would like to install 64bit Vista.
As i've read you can use the 32bit key to install the 62bit version. Is there a way to get the "Product Recovery Disk" in a 64bit version.

Or to download it from somewhere

Answer:Satellite Pro A200 How to get a 64bit Vista recovery disk from Toshiba


What OS was preinstalled on your notebook?
If it was a 32bit Vista OS then you can get ?only? a 32bit Vista Toshiba recovery CD.

If you want to install another OS, no matter if it?s XP or Vista 64bit, you have to buy the OS from Microsoft.

PS: As far as I know the serial key used for the Vista 32bit OS is only a OEM key and it does not work with other operating systems!

Hello Silvio

In one thing you are right. At the moment there are no Vista drivers for Satellite A100 available but it is just matter of time when they will be ready for download because A100 is definitely ?Vista capable? notebook.

Back to your problems: As fat as I know on Satellite A100-926 IrDA is not available and because of that I don?t understand which kind of problems you have. About BT I can recommend you to visit Under Download you can find BT for Vista. It is version 5.10.01.

Hi All,

I have a Satellite A100-413. As some or most of you know, that laptop is equipped with Harman/Kardon speakers and needs the SRS Trusound software to use the speakers' capacities.

I used to have Windows XP on my laptop and the speakers were running without any problems.

However, last weekend, I switched over to Vista (Enterprise). I have found most of the drivers required for Vista. However, the only driver I cannot find is the one for my speakers. I have installed the sound drivers, but need an additional driver for the srs.

Can anyone help me on this topic???

Answer:Satellite A100-413: Need additional Vista driver to use SRS Truesound


You do not need any driver for speaker?s functionality. What you are talking about is just one tool that allows different sound settings. As far as I know his tool is called ?Virtual sound?. I have it on my Satellite M70 too.

I have checked Toshiba download page and ?Virtual sound? is really not there. I can not understand why but in the past I have noticed that missing stuff will be listed sooner or later. Check download page from time to time. Maybe you will find it soon.

Hi there,

I downloaded the ATI driver from the Vista downloads page but it does not want to install - it goes through the whole installation process, but at the end gives an error message. At the bottom of the log is :-

Error messages
Driver Install: the installation failed
Application Install: failed

What to do now? The Vista driver does not allow me to activate my SVideo out which is really annoying.

Thanks for any insight!

Answer:Can not install Vista display driver on my Satellite A100-529


Mostly such error messages appear because something went wrong during the installation procedure.
This could be caused by usage of the wrong, not compatible graphic driver.

Are you sure you have used the right graphic driver??
You have to choose the drivers developed for the Satellite PSAA2 series because the A100-529 belongs to this notebook series.

The Toshiba page provides a version of the ATI graphic driver.
You should install this!!!

I remember this unit was not delivered with Windows Vista but with the Windows XP home version. Therefore I assume you did something wrong during the Vista driver installation.

Do you use the newest BIOS version??? Please check it and if necessary try to update it.
But be careful!!
Be sure you use the right BIOS and the right BIOS update method.

I wonder why you were able to install the Catalyst Control Center and not the inf file ;)
Hmmm? In my opinion the driver is ok but the only installation failed!!!

Did you unzipped all folders correctly ;)
In first step I would recommend removing the whole graphic software.
After new reboot you could try to reinstall it again!

You don?t have a recovery disk because you didn?t create it before you have formatted your HDD!!! So it was your mistake!

At this time you will not find any Vista 64bi drivers for this notebook model.
There are Vista 32bit and XP drivers but no Vista 64bit drivers.

But I presume Toshiba will publish it in the next time? hopefully?

However, you could try to test some Vista 64bit drivers which are released for other Toshiba models. Many notebooks series use the same devices and therefore also some single drivers could functions.

Last but not least you can search on chip manufacturer websites for 64bit drivers.

LAN driver can be found on Realtek page.
Wlan on Intel or this Toshiba WLan portal page
BT can be downloaded from here

Then I tried the ones from Toshiba's website, but The Vista-compatible ones display an error that says error code "#5B4 @10".

Then I tried The Windows XP-compatible drivers, and they work perfectly, except the fact that I cannot configure enhanced features such as virtual scrolling and tap zones.
I click on the icon in the tray, click on The Device Settings tab, and whenever I click on The Settings button nothing happens.

Any help?

Answer:Satellite A100: Where to get a working Synaptics touchpad driver for Vista?


Usually the driver from the Toshiba page should be fully valid and should works.
Please note that there are different A100 series and if you download any drivers, be sure that you choose the right drivers for the right notebook series.

Did you check if the touchpad settings can be set and changed in the control panel??
As far as I know the touchpad properties can be set in the ?Mouse? option which can be found in the control panel!!!

In the ?Device settings? tab you should select the ?synaptics touchpad? and press ?settings?.
New window will pop up and you will find many options controlling the touchpad settings!!!

On my Satellite notebook the Toshiba control are responsible for the properly function of the buttons above the keyboard.

I think you should check in the control panel if the Toshiba controls was properly installed and check if the applications were assigned to the single buttons.

For some time I was searching for 64bit Vista for my laptop (P100-324) sound card. Nothing works... I was very desperated, so I start ... thinking ;)
This solution isn't perfect - laptop speakers doesn't work, but if you plug in some speakers or use bluetooth headset it works.

1. Get HP driver "sp35683.exe"
2. Run it - it unpacks to "C:\swsetup\SP35683\" directory
3. Open "wi630B2a.inf"
4. Find "[Conexant.NTAMD64]" line
5. Just under it you'll find lines beginning with "%HdAudioFunctionDriver.Waikiki...."
6. Edit first of them: replace number at the end of line (after "&SUBSYS_") with "1179FF31"
7. Save changes and close. Run "Setup64.exe" and follow white rabbit... uh. installation instructions.
8. Restart your Vista 64bit and it should works.

This is not easy to say but did you check the touchpad functionality using the Toshiba preinstalled OS???

Usually the touchpad should work without big troubles using the Toshiba original image.

May I ask you what notebook model and what OS do you have?

Hi, please help.

I've just upgraded my laptop from Windows Vista 32bit to Vista 64bit.

I've managed to find all the drivers apart one: The 'Mass storage controller' driver (yellow exclamation mark in Device Manager).

I don't know where to look for this driver.

Any help would be appreciated. Al

Answer:Satellite Pro P300: Need Vista 64bit 'Mass storage controller' driver


I assume you didn?t search in forum for similar questions? Is it right?
I think I?m right because I searched in the forum and found this Toshiba FAQ doc.

+No Windows XP driver for PCI Memory Controller+

Here you can find this text passage:
After installing Windows XP there could be a yellow exclamation mark by a "PCI Memory Controller" or *"Mass Storage Controller"* in the device manager.

This device is likely the Turbo Memory former Robson module.
This hardware will only supported by Windows Vista.
Therefore there is no Windows XP driver.

Now everything should be clear ;)

I have the Satellite Pro U400-12p.
I installed the Vista 64bit because I upgraded the ram to 4GB.
Now, the driver of Conexant is not working.
Downloaded everything just right, even tried the 32bit Version.

It shows that it can upgrade, then "installing" the files, and at the end it shows "Failure"
The cause of it, it shows I have no audio output/input installed. = speakrs are not working and the microphone of course.

Only when I remove the driver in the device manager and restart the machine, it gets fine.

So, what is the problem?
*The problem is, the Microphone does not work! How do I make it work?*

Please, help me, I am a student and need it very much for the studies.

Thanks a lot for the help.

Maybe it is a stupid question, but I am not that good with knowledge when it is about hardware...

I have Satellite A100-153. It's CPU is Intel Centrino Duo T2300 1.66 GHz. So I would like to know is my cpu 64bit or 32bit? Also, if it is 64bit what are advanteges of that type of CPU?

Thank You!

Answer:Satellite A100-153: Is my CPU 64bit?

No, the Generation of your Centrino has no EMT64 (64 Bit). The next generation which production has started at March of this year is now 64 Bit.
The new CPU?s have a similar core like the "Core 2 Duo".

So, the advantages of 64bit are apparent, you have a wider bus which can handle more data at the same time. And more processed data at the same time means a higher processing speed.

But there is just a little problem: the driver support for 64Bit Operating systems is not very good and there aren?t many programs for us end-users which are written in 64Bit. So we have to wait till the software developers and chip manufacturers are going a better way than now.

Please give me a solution.

Answer:Satellite A100-813 - Express media buttons not working after XP install


For these special buttons you have to install the Toshiba tools. Did you check this?

On the Toshiba website I founded the installation instructions document for your notebook and XP. This is a list for recommend driver installation order.
That means you have to install also Toshiba Common Modules, Hotkey Utility, Touchpad ON/OFF Utility, Utilites, etc.

I have a Satellite P100-400(PSPA6E) and I just got the new Windows Vista x64bits version. I wanted this version of Vista because this Portables runs in 64bits processors. Well the problem was when I downloaded the display drivers from the site and when I'am installing them the installer say that I am not running a windows vista OS.

Well in fact those drivers only works for x32bits Vista. And I had the same problem with sound drivers. So Vista was running really slow and without sound, for perfect...

What I am asking is, if you realize portables with 64bits why don't you make drivers that work with 64bits systems...

Answer:Satellite P100-400 (PSPA6E): Display driver doesn't work with Vista 64bit?


In fact the Toshiba 64bit drivers are not available at this time on the Toshiba page.
In my opinion the 64bit drivers are not available because Toshiba does not deliver any notebooks with 64bit operating system.

But as far as I know the new 64bit drivers should be released in the text time.
I?m also looking for such drivers because I?m a owner of the Vista 64bit version.

It seems we have to wait but I?m sure the drivers will be available.

Hi all,
it's possible to install Win7 64bit versione on laptop A100-646?
I think that the toshiba support (drivers) for this OS is not complete for my "old" laptop

thanks a lot

Answer:WIN7 64bit on Satellite A100-646

I?m afraid 64bit is not supported but you can try to install it anyway and check which drivers are missing. Maybe some drivers for A200 or A300 can be used.

I also saw that A100 (PSAA9E) is supported for Win7 32 bit. Install 32 bit version. It is Ok and I hope it wil run well on your notebook. I use 32 bit on A300 and I?m very satisfied.

Hi everyone,

I have some questions. I've got Satellite A100-294 (PSAA8E-02T026G3) and i was asking is it possible to install 64-bit win 7 on this machine? I've got 4 GB of RAM but it's really slow when opened few app's (CS4, video editing, internet, office..) and I wanted to install 64bit win to experience some faster work. First of all I can't figure out which chipset I'm running. In device manager it says this:

mobile intel(r) 955XM/945GM/PM/GMS/940MGL express processor to dram controller - 270A. Is this chipset supporting 64bits OS??

Bios is the latest and also the CPU is Core Duo T2400 1.8Ghz and I suppose that CPU can also handle 64bit OS.

Also, would I experience driver problem if I install Win7 64-bit?? Is it hard to find necessary drivers?

Thank you for help!!

Have you already checked the BIOS? How much RAM does the BIOS show?
And what type of modules have you installed exactly?

Normally it should be possible to use full 4GB of RAM on a 64bit OS because your notebook does also support 4GB.

Maybe you should also try to update the chipset driver. You can find it on the Toshiba website.

I have the A100-847 PSAA9E-0R101QAR laptop and I have 4GB ram installed on it.
Yesterday I installed Win7 64-bit system but when I check it on the computer properties I only see:

Installed Memory (Ram): 4GB (3.00 GB usable)
System Type: 64-bit Operating System

What should I do to use my full 4GB ram?

Answer:Satellite A100-847 PSAA9E - 4GB ram but it reads only 3GB Win 64bit


In order to be abele to use 4GB RAM, three notebook components should support 4GB.

- Win OS
- Chipset

If one of these parts would not support 4GB RAM then you will not be able to get access to full 4GB.

You are using Win 64bit? that?s ok? so now only the chipset or BIOS might cause this issue?
Check the chipset and search on Intel page if the chipset is 4GB RAM capable.
If chipset would be 4GB RAM capable then the issue is releated to BIOS.

Hi Akis,

> where I can find drivers, because they are not listed on Toshiba site.
That?s the point because all provided drivers for this model you can find on official Toshiba website. There is no other place where you can download pretested and official drivers for Toshiba notebooks.

Theoretically it?s no problem to install Windows 7 but you must search for drivers yourself on external websites like:

Alternative you can try Vista 64bit drivers. Usually they should work on Windows 7 too.

In the last two/three days the speeds of the cursor/pointer and control buttons have dropped alarmingly.

Also the tracker icon in the system tray does not always register that the touch pad is being used, and this is normally when the speed drops away.
The pointer moves across the screen alright, but there is a long delay to highlighting the target or getting any response to clicking the buttons when it is.

I suspect a virus of some type, but having run Norton, Hitman Pro and Webroot Spyware I have not found any. Can anyone suggest a possible cause/cure please?

Answer:Satellite A100-487: Speed of cursor & Button control buttons have dropped alarmingly


Did you notice a full CPU usage rate while the speed of the cursor/pointer and control buttons have dropped?
Sometimes my mouse doesn?t response or moves slowly because the CPU runs with 100% and has to execute many background processes.
Of course, a virus or malware could increases the CPU usage rate to a higher level.

I noticed that Norton does not recognize some Viruses or some unsafe files are not known to Norton Antivirus.
Since several months I have been using the freeware AntiVirus program. It?s nice and for free!

But maybe it?s not a virus issue but only something wrong with the system files and/or drivers.
In such case I would recommend reinstalling the common modules, touchpad driver/utility and Toshiba controls.

In worth case you have to reinstall the whole OS from the Toshiba recovery CD!

Hello everybody,

I have the Satellite A100-003 and I have been running it with Windows XP since I got it(downgraded). Now I want to install Windows 7 on it, however, I am confused about what I can install on it.

I some places on the Toshiba site, I have found that I can install Windows 7 (32 and 64bit) but I may run into some problems with the BIOS, in other places I have tried but could not find any drivers for Windows 7 64bit.

So what is the case? My first goal is to install windows 7 64 bit, because I have 4GB RAM on my laptop, but even the 32bit would be a better choice than XP right now.
So, can I install Windows 7 64 bit on my laptop?

Thank you in advance for any reply!

Answer:Satellite A100-003 - Can I install Windows 7 32bit or 64bit?


Important is before you install another OS, that you check the Toshiba driver download page. Satellite A100-003 belongs to PSAARE series and therefore are no Windows 7 drivers available. You can only get drivers for Windows XP and Vista 32bit.

That means you can try to install Windows 7 because the most Vista drivers also work on Windows 7.
If not you must search newer drivers yourself, maybe you can find something.
