Need help to buy new graphic card for Satellite C670-14W

Question: Need help to buy new graphic card for Satellite C670-14W


Since I upgraded to Windows 10 in my TOSHIBA SATELLITE C670-14W my graphic card (Intel HD 3000) don't work propely on Video Editing Softwares and Games. I contacted the Intel Support and they rudely answered that they will not release any new drivers for my Graphic Card for Windows 10 and that I have to buy a new graphic card or roll back to Windows 7 (but the month is gone). They said that for help on which graphic card I should choose compatible with Windows 10, I need to contact my OEM support but as my pc is discountinued I can't ask the support; so I ask you: the community. What new Graphic card (compatible with Windows 10) should I choose compatible for my PC to have a similar/improved gaming/software performances ?

The DxDiag.txt file (attachment) has all my PC setting.

Thank you for your help.

Does anyone know if it is possible to expand the video memory on the satellite p10-504, or replace the video card. Because the memory is too small to play most good games.

Answer:Is possible to expand graphic memory or replace graphic card on the Satellite P10-504


Unfortunately, it?s not possible to increase the graphic memory or to replace the graphic card on the notebooks.
Please don?t compare notebook technology with the simply desktop PC.
Notebooks use other motherboards and the graphic cards are mostly soldered on the boards!!!

Nothing to do, buddy?

I would not buy a notebook if you want to play the newest games!!!! Why??? Because of the hardware upgrade possibilities?.
The desktop PC can be upgraded very easily but not the notebook?

Hi all,

I have a C670-19K for a while now ( 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 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,

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.

> 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.

Satelilite c670 - 188 WOW shutdown after 20 - 30 minutes game.
my notebook shutdown cpu temperature 86-90 degrees.

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


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.

clean. Still couldnt find nothing..., now a bit later and alot of research later i learned
that the only way to get what i want (the laptop in a out of the box state) is to magicly
clear the password what is stored on 1 of the chips wich does not require a cmos battery anymore

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 !

it?s not possible to exchange the VGA-Card in your system since the VGA-card is soldered on the mainboard (most important thing in your notebook on which all components are on) and if you got a problem with your graphics card then you should contact a local authorized service partner, because of a hardwarecheckup or a repair of your machine.

To find the nearest one just check the following link:

i guess my graphics card is broken because the quality of the screen is bad an flickering with green stripes. Almost impossible to read what is on the display. In the device list, the graphics card is marked with the yellow triangle symbol.

Its seems not to be a driver problem because it is the same on startup when entering the bios (before booting windows xp).

Is it possible to change the graphics card myself? I know, could be tricky but I guess I am able to tue.
But which card can I use? Now its a GeForce4 410 Go.
Can I take a better one as long as it is same size and need not more cooling than the old one? How to know which one fits and where to buy?

Hope someone can help.

Thanking you in advance.


Answer:Need new graphic card for my Satellite Pro M10

Hi there,

unfortunately you cannot exchange the graphics card since it?s soldered on the main PCB (printed circuit board). So theres nothing with DIY-exchanging. You will have to exchange the whole motherboard to fix this error.
So if you have still warranty then bring your machine to an ASP. You can also bring your machine to an ASP when not in warranty, but you will be charged for the exchange/repair of the motherboard and in your case it could be cost about 300-500 dollars (I am just guessing, it can be much more expensive..)

So if you really want a working machine again then check this link:

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?
I think you should backup the date just to be safe?

I was wondering if anyone could help me?
The screen on my C670 works but has visible damage and a lot of dead pixels,
I have bought two replacement screens but have been unable to get them to work any more than the backlight coming on.

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?

My screen is a LP173WD1(TL)(N1) and the replacements were N173FGE - L23 and LP173WD1(TL)(E1) which I was assured were both compatible with my machine.

Thanks in advance

Answer:Satellite C670 screen replacement problems


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.

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:Looking for a new graphic card with 1GB memory for Satellite Pro A10

I don?t know exactly what you want to do but I presume you need this card for an upgrade.
Bad news dude! The notebooks graphic cards are mostly fixed on the motherboard and cannot be removed!!!
Additionally you should know that the notebooks graphic cards are simply different and you cannot compare such chips with the graphic cards for desktop PCs.

Why is there not one updated driver for.... well... every notebook that has ATI graphics? I downloaded the ones for my notebook (P30), 2 years out of date, downloaded some for the latest notebook with the same type of card - they work - but are also 2 years out of date.

I?m using the Omega drivers that overheat the card to the point where everything is probably going to melt one day and I can do not without them, cant play City of Heroes, Cant play Doom 3, Cant play Half Life 2, cant play ANY game newer than 2 years.

[Edited by: admin]

Answer:Satellite P30: Where are updates for graphic card?


I can't give you a proper answer why there are no newer graphic card driver updates for old units. But the fact is that Toshiba designed many notebooks which many different graphic cards and there are the newest graphic drivers. Additionally the Toshiba graphic drivers are not the same like the graphic card manufacture drivers. The graphic cards on the notebooks are not same like graphic cards on the desktop PCs. Don?t mix that!

The Toshiba graphic drivers support an overheating protection. This is important because the graphic card cannot be cooled as on the desktop PC. If the temperature inverses to the critical level the driver will decrees the card performance to make the temperature lower.

Has anyone got any ideas as to why its not switching or can tell me to switch it myself.

Answer:Satellite L50-B-23F - how to switch to AMD graphic card

In Catalyst Control Center click on Power and select Maximum Performance when Plugged IN
Then in Switchable Graphics Global Settings choose also Maximize Performance
Then click on Switchable Graphics Application Settings

Now you would be able to add an application (for example a game) which could use this graphic card settings
Point simply to the game exe file and add to the application list.
After that you will see the exe file in the list. Click on graphic settings column and set it to high performance.
By the way: this YouTube clip could be interesting…
It shows you how to switch to ATI GPU and to get best GPU performance.

Hi Richard

Graphic card upgrade is serious theme and my only comment to this is: pick up info by serious source and not in the forum where everyone can affirm to know everything about notebooks.

Sorry but I am always a little bit skeptic about some comments. I have had P20 for about one and half year and it is very nice notebook (desktop replacement). Unit is pretty powerful and with max RAM you can have very nice unit. But never forget that for the hardware upgrade this unit is not so flexible like desktops.

One another thing: Few months ago I have Googled around and searched some ?independent? (non-Toshiba) dealer where I can buy different hardware parts. I can tell you one. You can get everything but they don?t offer graphic card update. Guess why!

As far as I know the graphic card can not be exchanged. It?s soldered on the mainboard and so you need a new mainboard.

I have a Satellite P10-554 for more that 2.5 years (warranty has expired). However now the display starts flickering (sometimes some horizontal bands like refreshing troubles, sometimes turns completely into black,...).

In all this time, the laptop is frozen until the display recovers. After several times flickers, the display cannot recover anymore and sometimes the laptop reboots (sometimes with after a blue screen of death). If I'm lucky that day, WXP tells me that an error happened related with the NVIDIA driver and switch to 800x600 resolution asking me to restart.
This happens usually a while after Windows XP starts, usually as early as 5 minutes. I did not notice any software related issue and it persisted after completely format and reinstallation of Windows XP.

Besides, the most annoying part is that when I reboot after that, the display is still wrong during the booting welcome screen (some horizontal bands move downwards as it was a refreshing problem). To solve the problem, I have to leave the laptop off for minimum 15 minutes. When I restart "in cold", problem repeats after a while.

My guess is that the graphic card is broken. My laptop is installed with a NVIDIA FX Go5600 64Mb. I actualized all the drivers. The same problem also appears even if I use an external monitor or a TV.

You will probably have problem with this. You cannot buy graphic card only. If the graphic card is defective you must exchange whole mainboard so my advice for you is to check if you can buy already used or refurbished mainboard.

From time to time check eBay. There you can find many hardware parts for Toshiba notebooks. You can also check if you can find some company in France where you can buy refurbished mainboards.

Can you exchange them alone?

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.

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.

Hello members,

I?m a proudly owner of Satellite X200 with a single graphics card (NV8700GT-256). But like most of these NV cards... black screen-no video. I know, that this card can be changed- it?s not soldered but it seems to be a specialized card only made by Toshiba.

Many sellers (most of them in CN) have such cards and I have googled a lot: NV8700GT with 256MB or 512MB. This should be suitable without any problems LS-3443P. But there are sill some other cards: LS-3442P with an ATI chip and 256 or 512MB ram. They are used in a P200 note. Some dealers say, that they are useabe in a X200 too. The connector seems to be the same like the dimensions of the board an the place of the chips. Some say, that ATI would be better, cooler and there are no "burn outs". I have got no answer till yet which chip is used- i think it is a radeo 2600 series. Benchmark tests provide the same speed as NV8700GT. But no one of them give a real answer- so my question is: has anyone of you any experience with this card? May i choose ATI or the upgrade to a NV with 512MB ram. Will my laptop boot up or have i to cahnge the bios first? These graphics problems are boring!

Is it possible to upgrade the Graphic card on the A100-033 ?
I am not sure if the PCI slot on the side will accept a seperate Graphic card ?

Answer:Satellite A100-033: Is it possible to upgrade the Graphic card

Hi George

It?s definitely not possible to upgrade the graphic card. The notebook technology is a little bit different and you should not compare it with the common PC desktop.
The GPU is fixed and not removable.

Answer:Can I install this graphic card on my Satellite C660


Please don?t understand me wrong but I?m asking myself is your question a big joke or do you think seriously you can upgrade notebook with such piece of hardware designed for desktops.

Generally speaking graphic card upgrade on mobile units is not possible -

All direct 3D applications do not run anymore and while running videos there are vertical stripes all over the display.
I already tried to install many different drivers but without any success.
In case the graphic card has a defect is it possible to repair or replace this?

Unfortunately the warranty of my notebook expired 10 weeks ago.
Thank you for your help.

Answer:Is graphic card defect on my Satellite M30X-131?


You should firstly find out what?s exactly wrong.

Try to connect the external monitor to the notebooks and check if the same vertical stripes will appear on the second display.
If you will notice the same problem then it?s definitely something wrong with the graphic chip on the board.

This would be a worst case :( because mostly the whole motherboard must be replaced.
But maybe you?re a luck guy and the card is only stuck on the MB and the technician would be able to remove it.

Whatever, I don?t think that you will be able to fix this yourself and therefore you should contact the ASP in your country for details and further handling.

Good luck

Well this was a fun day, simply unplug the p200 and moved to another room, plug it in again and nothing!
No lights or anything.

So yes this happened while nothing was turned on.
So I took to taking apart the many screws holding the P200 together (there are a lot) finally getting to the motherboard, looking everywhere for a problem and finally found a small ic chip that has had better days.

Such a small piece taking down the whole computer. repair man say a replace chip is not available but will be hunting down another card to replace it.

Problem that occurred before, I would get a conflict on start-up when the laptop would try to power up the rest of the system and give me a BSOD then restart and go for system repair. (Sometimes it would happen other times it would not do that for a while) That never did anything because the problem was not where that service was checking, however it may have helped by preventing a fault occuring, yet another however this occured only on plugging in the laptop not pushing the power button.

A word for maintainance even though there never seemed to be a build up of dust on the outside there was on the inside of the cooling fins. Do get something to blow through the fins, it does not go into the computer on back into the fan housing it self and should fall out through the bottom.

A side from that it has being a good performer and it does build up the heat so a cooling pad is also a must

Answer:Satellite P200 lost it graphic card

Hi gazza,

Your GPU / motherboard part failed? what to say; as far as I know it?s not possible to use another chip.
In most case the motherboard needs to be replaced and this is expensive procedure.

Don?t know what an advice you have expected from the forum but in my opinion either the notebook will be fixed by an service technician or its time for a new notebook.

Ok, here`s the problem. I have an ATI X1200 with 128MB and I want to extend it at 256MB. The problem is I can?t do that. The reason?

I don?t know where. I tried in BIOS but nothing, CCC nothing, although the card is extendible at 831.


Answer:Cannot extend the graphic card to 256 MB - Satellite A210-C11

I am afraid there is no option for doing this and it works automatically. With more RAM graphic card can use more memory for graphic operations. The same is on notebooks with Intel graphic cards with sharing technology.

Ok, im pretty new to laptops I've had my P100-240 for just short of a year.
I've put up with it for long enough, its been really good to me.
The problem that has now really started to tick me off is the graphic card, the Nvidia Go 7600, it slow, Nvidia don't support up to date drivers (laim).

Lot of my games have issues with this graphics card.
I'm looking into opening my little baby open and hopefully placeing in a compatible graphics card.

Im looking to replace the Go 7600 with an ATI alternative, a list of possible cards that will fit, where I can get my hands on one of these cards and if possible rough prices. I aint going to fork out too much cash if it isnt going to be worth it.

Thanks for reading, hope to get good answers soon.

Answer:Satellite P100-240: Is it possible to replace the graphic card


Graphic card replacement on notebooks is not possible because it is a part of mainboard. For example: by defective graphic card the whole mainboard must be exchanged.

Sorry but there is nothing to do.

Is it possible to change the graphic card of a Satellite 5200-801? Or is it part of the motherboard, means, I would have to change the mothermoard? If it is possible, what is the likely invest?

My graphic card seems to show a HW failure. After turning the laptop on the display shows fine vertical lines and it starts flickering after a few seconds.

During booting Windows XP the machine runs into a Bluescreen detecting problems with the nvidia device.

When I boot the laptop in Safe Mode, the Laptop boots and I am able to proof with the Windows hardware manager, that Windows detects an HW issue with the graphic card.

So I am pretty sure it is the graphic card and/or the video RAM. Even playing around with video modes does not change or fix the issue. Also the video mode with the highest resolution is no longer available.

The LCD-display is new. I have changed it 3 month ago with a new one.

Thanks in advance,

The grapichs card is ATI Mobility Radeon? HD 4650 .

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

Someone know ?

Answer:Satellite A500 -149 - graphic card issue

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

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

I've had this PC for only a few months now and i've been disappointed to have heard that my drivers are WAY out of date. The only drivers i can find are on here and they are only v.8 something (although the game reads this as an older version).

The problem comes in when i want to play games like Half Life 2 and CSS, the game crashes because these drivers are out of date. Where can i get the LATEST drivers for the ATI Mobility Radeon x700 card for the Toshiba Pro M70?

Answer:Need latest graphic card drivers for Satellite Pro M70


You can check the different graphic drivers form the notebooks which were delivered with the same graphic card as your Pro M70 Satellite.

Additional you could check the different websites which offers also some graphic drivers? for example the site.

Please note:
According to several threads here in the forum the installation of the non-Toshiba graphic drivers is at your own risk!

I have googled a little bit and you should know that the notebook series were delivered with different hardware configuration.
The number what you have placed says nothing to me and therefore it would be very interesting to know the further notebook name; Satellite A80-xxx

However, some of these units support Mobile Intel 915GM Express Chipset AlvisoGM up to 128 MB sheared memory.
