Preferred Solution: Satellite C70D-B-105 microphone missing after windows update

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.)

Can't get my microphone and webcam working under Win7 64.
Drivers not available on the download section of Toshiba.

What to do please?

Toshiba Satellite C70D-B-310 PSCLEE.

Answer:Satellite C70D-B-310 - Webcam and Microphone not working

All essential and necessary Win 7 64bit drivers for Satellite C70D-B are available on Toshiba EU driver page.

The single webcam driver isn?t available because as far as I know the Toshiba Value Added Package already contains the essential driver to get the webcam working.

The mic is part of the webcam and should be chosen in control panel ? sound ? recording tab

Hi there,

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

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

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

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

After updating my P300 to Windows 7 (32-bit) my in-built microphone has not worked. I understand that the microphone is part of the camera, but I cannot find the driver for Windows 7 32-bit to update it with. The camera is working fine.

There have been similar threads that direct you to download the driver, but after looking at the Toshiba Australia and the toshiba-europe sites, I have not been able to find it.

Does anyone know where I can find this driver?


Answer:Satellite P300 (PSPCCA-03W01Y) - No microphone after Windows 7 update

Hi stelth_turtle,

You can try the Vista 32bit driver from Toshiba Australian page. Usually this driver also work on Windows 7 because Vista and Windows 7 are very similar so it would be worth a try and install the Vista 32bit driver.

If it doesn?t work have a look for Satellite P500 drivers. On Australian page I saw a Windows 7 32bit driver for this model and I assume it should also work on your P300.

Check this!!!

Just bought a Satellite C70D with Win 8.1. Everything works (as far as I know until know), except boot from DVD. I disabled in the bios the Secure Boot and changed the boot order to DVD first, then USB and then HDD. The DVD drive starts, but then it skips to the HDD and Windows is started. First time I tried there was a message like "DVD boot not supported" or something like that.
The DVD is bootable, so that is not the problem.
I would like to install Linux Mint alongside Windows.
Anyone solved this problem already?

but I find myself in a situation to which I find no solution,
that's why I come here asking for some help.

A friend has just purchased the following laptop:

but the worry is that apparently it is impossible to have access to the HDD recovery to execute the factory restoration.
I try all possible solutions that I find on the web and none of it works.

what to do ?

does Toshiba sell the recovery DVDs that will restore the computer to its factory state?

Thank you very much .

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

Answer:Speed-up Satellite C70D-A-107

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

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

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

My wive purchase this computer coupple of months ago. It was from the beginning ferry slow on windows 8
The wurst laptop we ever had. We feel robbed of our money.

2 months ago we started with Ubuntu. It Still slow. IS there anybody with the same problems?



Answer:Satellite C70D-A-108 is very slow

Hi Marco

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

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

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

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

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

The OS is windows 8.1

I picked up a brand new c70d-b-10u today from a well known retailer.
I turned it on, set the language, gave a computer name, hooked up to a wi fi and then it asked for Other User Password!

I never entered a password to start with so why is it asking for one?

I cannot get to the shop again until next week and urgently need to get up and running.

Any ideas greatly received.

Answer:Brand new Satellite C70D-B-10U wants a password?

Try to recover the notebook once again using the HDD recovery option.

The recovery procedure would reset the notebook back to factory settings… usually after that no passwords should be set…

My girlfriend bought me a new Toshiba laptop C70D-B-10U (my second Toshiba), it is a good laptop apart from the speakers they are terrible. I didn't want my first post to be a complaint but, Toshiba cut corners when it put the speakers in this series of laptops.

Or have I not set them right has anyone else had this problem, any ideas or solutions thank you.

Answer:Bad Speakers on Satellite C70D-B-10UM

I think your notebook has only small stereo speakers and the sound is not the best. I have Satellite S50-B with Harman/kardon speakers and sound is really good.

You can try to change sound options but if you want to have better sound I’m afraid you need external speakers, Maybe BT speakers.

Hi All,

I have an Satellite C70D-A-11D ... when I use once the FN Key to do a Print Screen or use the Screen-Zoom on the Space Key...

I am not able to use the Keynumbers 1 to 4 neither the space Key to enter a space between two always change between the bigger screen solution or the normal solution...

I only can change the FN Key again after change the settings in Display settings and after a reboot...
So I cant use FN without a reset with the F1 to F12 Key use and a reboot...

Normaly the FN Key works only if it is pressed...if not the normal Function of the Keys 1 to 4 or F1 to F12 will work if configured in the settings, or not?

What to do?

Kind regards

Answer:Satellite C70D-A-11D Function Key deactivate after use

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

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

Check this option.

Hi There,

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

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

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

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

Thanks in advance for your help

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

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

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

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

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

You can order it on

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

Hello list!

I have a Toshiba A500-026 laptop for presentations (via overhead projector) and internet communications (Skype, etc.).

At a recent presentation, I was to use the in-house speakers of the venue (plug into line-out socket on my A500), but was getting feedback from my inbuilt microphone, which I had been successfully using as part of my Skype (using the in-built webcam and microphone on the A500). I tried every solution to cut the microphone (selecting RIGHT CLICK Speaker Icon - Recording Devices did not appear to cut the Microphone) and eventually the pressure and stress of the situation over-rode my taking note of what I was actually doing.

Now, I do not have ANY 'recording devices', AKA Microphones, on the system, and I have been spending the last 4 days trying to reinstall the in-built microphone. I have reinstalled the RealTek Drivers, but still there is no Microphone identified.

Any help for reinstituting the A500 in-built microphone would be gratefully accepted!

Answer:Missing Audio Device (Microphone) on Satellite A500-026 (PSAR2A 026002)


You should check if the microphone has not been disabled.

Go to control panel -> sound -> recording tab
There you should make a right click and should enable the both options called ?show hidden devices? and ?show disabled devices?.
Now you should see 2 microphone entries; one internal mic and second should belong to the external mic jack.

If you want to use the internal mic then mark it as default device.

Who can give me the golden tip?

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

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

Here is an short instruction how to find this details:

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

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

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

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

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

Great !

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

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

Thanks a lot for your help.

Hi there

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

Thanks for your help in advance

Hi all,

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

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

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

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


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

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

I have since week 1 Series Toshiba Satellite C70D-A-11E notebook,
Unfortunately, I am at the moment not really satisfied with the image.. game lags because my graphics.

My question is where can you find how much I consume from the 4 GB.

And where I can set that I consume more or less. since it is a separable memory yes.

My English is not perfect. hope someone understands.

Please reply

Answer:Satellite C70D-A: game lags due to graphic chip?


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

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

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

Message was edited: posting has been translated

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


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

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

In such case ODD must be exchanged.

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

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

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

Even our IT guys at work cannot work it out.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

If you could help me it would be appreciated!

Under vista microphone is working fine but I wanted to try Windows 7 on laptop and everything is working excellent except microphone.

Answer:Satellite L300-1A3 - Microphone is not working with Windows 7


I think the reason why Windows 7 is only RC and not a final version that is on the market. I think you should wait until Windows 7 is official released.

However, have you installed the driver for the webcam and sound card? You can try to use the Vista drivers. It should also work on Windows 7.

I have just purchased a Satellite A500-026 and although I have increased the gain and boost to the microphone to maximum, and turned on and off the three microphone noise control modes, the microphone performance is very weak and basically unusable unless one speaks very loudly.

This happens with both Skype and the standard supplied webcam recording program. Note that the laptop came with Windows 7 installed.

As I am 500km away from the nearest stockist, can anyone who has an A500 comment on the "strength" of the microphone in their experience.

My Bluetooth headset and microphone work very nicely, but it is a pain to have a webcam rendered marginal by a poorly performing built in microphone.


Answer:Satellite A500 - very weak microphone - Windows 7

The same is on older notebook models. You must simply come closer to the mic.
Due to this I always use headset and people who I am talking with hear me perfectly.

You know, this built in mics are not so perfect and you cannot expect best performance and compare it with standard headsets.

Could anyone please help?

Answer:Problems with webcam and microphone on Satellite with Windows 7


The webcam software is designed by Chicony.
It?s notebook model independent and therefore the usage of webcam software which was released for other notebook models should not be a problem.

I recommend checking the driver area for Toshiba Satellite L500 series.
There you can download the drivers for Win 7 32bit and 64bit OS.

Answer:Satellite P300-1A8 PSPC0E - Microphone driver and RAM with Windows 10

I upgraded and fine a clean installation of Windows 10 32 bit.
It is only showing 2.99gb usable 4gb installed.

This is no problem but fact that 32bit systems, no matter which 32bit system it is, recognize only 3.2GB RAM.
The 2.99GB appears because part of 3.2GB is used by GPU.

In built microphone not working

The built in mic belongs to the webcam… I assume the internal mic must be chosen as default device in control panel -> sound → recording device

Sometimes its necessary to click right and to enable the both options to see hidden and disabled devices.

There are no Win 8 drivers for P300 because the Win 8 isn?t supported for this series.

Does anyone know the BIOS version this laptop came with to downgrade? Also, If I reinstall windows will I get a new bios version or wlll it be unaffected?

Answer:Satellite Pro L670-18F - Drivers missing after BIOS update


Did you download and install the correct BIOS version for your notebook? Satellite Pro L670-18F belongs to PSK3FE series as far as I know so did you choose the BIOS for this model series?

Furthermore I would recommend loading the default settings in BIOS. Just press F9 key if you are in BIOS setup.

If you reinstall Windows, the BIOS will not be affected. BIOS and Windows are different, you will always have the current version even you change operating system.

Answer:Satellite P300 - Microphone doesn't work after Windows 7 installation


Maybe you didn?t install the driver for the microphone?! Therefore you have to install the webcam driver because the microphone is a part of it. You can get it here: => Support & Downloads => Download Drivers

After this it should be possible to use the internal microphone.

By the way: Which application you use for the internal microphone? Skype or something else?

Hi buddy,

Sounds like it?s something wrong with your Windows 7 installation if the microphone doesn?t work anymore...

I would recommend updating the webcam driver because the microphone is a part of it. You can find driver updates here:

Did you really install all drivers after Windows 7 installation? Maybe you have forgotton something and so it doesn?t work.
Microphone is a part of webcam so make sure that webcam driver is installed properly and sound driver you need as well.

After this check the sound settings. Make sure that Microphone is enabled and test it again with enabled microphone boost.

Answer:Satellite P200 - missing SATA option after BIOS update

I have P200 too but until now I didn?t change BIOS version so I cannot confirm that.
As I can see on Toshiba BIOS download page there are two versions:
2.70 and 5.40 designed for user who want to install WXP.

I don't know which operating system do you use but if you use Vista or Win7 you don't need this option in BIOS. By default SATA controller mode it will be set to AHCI mode so your HDD will run with full speed.
In my opinion there is no reason for panic.

Hi Largo09,

Usually you have to install the webcam and sound driver to get the microphone working. The microphone is a part of webcam?

As you wrote, Satellite A210 is not Windows 7 64bit supported so the only option you have are Vista 64bit drivers?

In my opinion you should check if Microphone is enabled in Windows sound settings. There you can also enable Microphone boost, that can increase the microphone volume.

I own a laptop (Presario CQ56) and have been using Skype constantly for about a year with its internal microphone without an issue. After obtaining an automatic Windows 7 update a couple of days ago, my internal microphone stopped working. The microphone is still detected, enabled, but isn't picking up any input whatsoever. However, there is low static, but it's very constant, and isn't changed by input whatsoever. Here are the things I've tried:

-System Restore to before the update, then disabling automatic updates so I no longer have it
-Running the computer's find and fix audio recording software which claimed that there was no issue
-Uninstalling and reinstalling drivers without restart (with driver updates automatically through the computer's find and fix audio recording problems)
-Uninstalling and reinstalling drivers with restart (with driver updates automatically through the computer's find and fix audio recording problems)
-Uninstalling and reinstalling drivers with restart (through the official site's driver updates)

I do not own an external microphone, and I am hoping that I don't have to get one. That being said, that also means that I can't be entirely sure whether it's software or hardware based.

I hope that one of you can help me. I've done a lot of internet scouring and Google-ing and have run out of things to try; I've been at it for about 5 hours so far.

Thank you in advance.

Answer:Internal Microphone Suddenly Not Working After Windows Update

I would do a system restore to before it did the updates and see if it resolves the issue. Click start, programs, accessories, system tools, then system restore. Choose the date before the problem started happening and let it restore. See if the mic works after that. If it asks to do updates again and by chance you know what one caused the problem; then just dont download it. And to solve that from happening i would change the windows update settings to only download but let me choose when to install. EDIT: nevermind the system restore I just saw you already did that. In the end though i would just completely uninstall the device itself; remove it from device manager completely; and let windows hopefully re-detect it correctly.

A friend of mine, that I chat with, on Skype, appears to no longer have a functioning mic, or at least I can't hear her (could a couple of days ago). I've checked my end, and seems OK. Is there anything I can suggest she try (she's even less tech savvy than I am). Alternatively, as her webcam is pretty rubbish, anyway, can I get her a reasonably cheap webcam, that also includes a mic?

Answer:Missing microphone.

Skype can sometimes lose the settings for the mic. Open Skype - Tools - Options and on Audio settings check that the correct mic is selected.
Check too that it isn't muted. Right click sound icon in system tray and choose recording devices. Properties and levels tab will allow you to check.

Using XP Home and have installed a web cam Ok, but the software does not recognise a microphone at all.I have tried alternative working mic but still no success.Following help files and knowledge base etc. I should have facility of selecting recording source but all I have is:Realtek 97 and Modem#1 Line Record with no option to select a mic.Does this mean that my on board sound is duff( Cd's etc play Ok) or is it the input jack or am I missing something?Any help would be appreciated.

Answer:Missing Microphone?

Right click the sound icon down by the clock / left click open volume control / left click options /left click properties / make sure the spot is in playback then put a tick in microphone left click OK and that should add the microphone box tp your properties, just make sure that the mute box is not ticked.

Well apparently there was a massive Windows update yesterday - which installed itself this morning. I say massive, because despite having a good desktop CPU & fast SSD, it took more than 10 minutes to update, which is surprising.

I noticed the "Windows Update" options are now missing from the control panel - which does not allow me to see any details about the updates that were installed.
I also noticed a new icon in/near the system tray, the icon says "People" if you mouseover. I'm tempted to click it but was hoping to know what it is all about first.

Answer:Today's Windows update - "windows update" missing from control panel

Hi, could you tell us what your current build is?
Windows key + R, winver

Windows update disappeared from the Control Panel a couple of major builds or so back.
Slowly MS is migrating things to Settings, where you can find:
In the Control Panel you can still find
(Caveat- my build is 1703.. you may have upgraded to 1709)

I want to install *windows7*, but I didn&acute;t find the drivers ( _sound_ , _LAN_ , _Storage_ ) for windows7. Do someone help me???

Where can I find these drivers?

Regards For All....

Answer:Re: Satellite M70-164 - Missing drivers for Windows 7

You will not find such drivers since the Win 7 is not official on the market and not supported at this time.
But from my knowledge many Vista drivers are compatible with the Win7.
Therefore try to install the drivers released for Vista.

The sound card seems to be a Realtek one. You can try the driver from the Toshiba European page or from Realtek page!
The LAN card is the Realtek one too. So take a look on the Realtek page!

Hi everyone, I need your help guys.
I've just purchased my new Satellite C55-A-1R8, PSCJEE laptop with windows 8.1 preinstalled and n3520 intel cpu on board but because I hate windows 8 I've decided to downgrade it to windows 7 64bit thinking I'll find all the drivers but the problem is that there is no drivers supporting win 7 for this model and I think I've already tried all the others unsuccessful.
My usb ports doesn't work and I can't find the drivers, windows can't do it either.

My missing drivers:

Enthernet controller
PCI encryption/decryption controller
universal serial bus USB controller
unknown device (in properties says on Intel(R) Pentium(R) processor N- and J-series / Intel(R) Celeron(R) processor N- and)

also my bluetooth driver seems to be ok but I'm not able to install any Toshiba bluetooth software for win 7.

If somehow I could sort my usb ports would be perfect.

Guys do you have any ideas where to locate correct drivers?

many thanks in advance!

Answer:Satellite C55-A-1R8 - missing Windows 7 64-bit drivers

At first I must say hat I just hope you have created recovery DVD or USB before you have started with OS downgrade. Problem is that now after clean OS installation you will not be able to start recovery image installation from HDD and one day if you want to have ?factory settings? you may have big problem.

Anyway, I?m really wondering you have installed Win7 before check if this older OS is supported or not. What you can try now is to install Win7 drivers offered for other notebook models.
Try please to install follow rivers:
Chipset river ? Intel HM70 (should help with USB ports)
I don?t know for sure if this wll help but try please to install follow drivers for LAN and BT:
Atheros LAN driver ? LAN
Bluetooth Filter Driver Package ? BT filter
Bluetooth Stack

Please test it and send some feedback.

I bought a new TOSHIBA SATELLITE L650 -11R computer yesterday.
It has Windows 7.

I didn't get the original DVD of the Windows 7 program.

I want to install Linux too.

Therefore I need to format the hard drive and install Windows 7 again.

I want both Windows and Fedora Core Linux.

How do I get the original Windows 7 DVD?

Your help is deeply appreciated.

Answer:Satellite L650 -11R - Missing Windows 7 DVD

I can explain you everything but tell me as first have you checked ?User?s Manuals? document maybe?
I mean everything is described inside and you can pick up info how it works with operating system installation.

You must create this recovery disc alone but it is not Win7 DVD but just recovery image designed for your notebook model.
Don't install Linux before you have created this disc.

Be careful with this.

I just realized that a microphone is missing from my laptop. It did exist, and only software updates were done and now the microphone is not showing up in the hardware. Nothing was done physically so I don't know where it went.  In the sound options it says for the recordin devices that "No audio devices were found" I've tried downloading the webcam updates and audio updates, but that got no where.  Any idea what I can do next?

Satellite x200, Windows xp SP3

I can not find the drivers "PCI memory controller" and "SM bus controller". Even at the official page "" they are not available.
Any one has an idea where to download those two drivers?


Answer:Satellite X200 - Missing drivers on Windows XP

SM Bus is part of the Chipset, so you'll need to install the Intel Chipset Driver which is available on the Intel website. Or you could use the Chipset driver from another Toshiba model, such as the Satellite P200.

PCI Memory Controller is the Robson Card I think. Its not compatible with XP, so just disable it in Device Manager.
