Preferred Solution: Satellite C660-1KW - graphic drivers issue

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 C660-1KW - graphic drivers issue

Yes, you should use driver offered on Toshiba download page. This driver is tested and adapted for your notebook model.

Check please Toshiba download page on
There you can find all drivers for al supported operating systems.

If you need help anyway let us know.

I'm using Toshiba Satellite C660-1HU, and I can't find anywhere it's graphic drivers, I assume I need them because my max resolution is only 1024x768, and it should be 1300 something... Actually it is painfuly time consuming and difficult to find any drivers for Toshiba, I spent ~8 hours till I found internet drivers, and it wasn't even meant for C660-1HU, actually, there is NO drivers for this model.

Any comments/suggestions? I am VERY unpleased with Toshiba customer support, it's awful.
Thanks for the help, I hope you will change everything to better.

Answer:Cannot find graphic drivers for my Satellite C660-1HU

>? I spent ~8 hours till I found internet drivers, and it wasn't even meant for C660-1HU, actually, there is NO drivers for this model.
I don?t understand why you search drivers if you can find all you need on Toshiba support page -

Product type > Notebook
Family > Satellite
Product series > Satellite C Series
Model > Satellite C660
Short Model No > PSC0SE
Operating system > chose your OS

And you will have all drivers for each supported operating system. Instead 8 hours you will need not more than 30 seconds to find display driver.

If you need more help please let us know.

LOL :) it seems to be a user to user forum buddy? don?t think you meet someone from Toshiba here.

> I need Xp for use old softwarer for medical activity. (no compatibility with Vista or Win7)
Didn?t you know that you can install not compatible software in Win XP compatible modus?

Here a nice documentation from Microsoft:

PS: You need to install firstly the SP3 for Win XP before installing the sound driver.
The display driver is from Intel. So you could also find graphic card driver on Intel page.
But Toshiba European driver page contains both drivers too.

I've trawled the Internet for a solution to my problems running it, but I haven't found anything that works for me. In fact, the majority of the time, the problem seems to be solved by the person updating their graphics driver.

I've been trying to find an update that works for me, but I've not found anything so far.

I have a Satellite C660-26z. I am trying to use Trimble/google sketchup (3d modelling programme) but keep getting a "Bug splat" error message.

Google have recommended that I up date my driver, when I try to update from Intel, I get an error message telling me it has been modified by the computer manufacture and to contact them.

My driver is Intel (R) HD Graphics Version =
The programme runs well on my 5 year old other computer.

Any suggestions ????

Answer:Satellite C660-26z - Intel graphic driver update is not possible


It is well known that you cannot use drivers offered by graphic card manufacturers. Not for mobile computers. Display drivers are modified by notebook manufacturers to offer balance between performance and hardware protection.

What you can try is to check if Toshiba offers newer driver for newer notebook models.
Please check on Toshiba download page -
If you can find newer display driver for:
Satellite L775 (PSK6DE)
Satellite R700 (PT314E)
Satellite Pro U630 (PSK01E)

Please post some feedback.

Answer:Satellite C660 - Latest Intel graphic driver is from 2012


Display driver upgrade on mobile machines is pretty problematic. Due to specific design and limited cooling system the temperature must be all the time ?under control?.
New display driver means more performance and more performance means more heat so in worst case GPU can be damaged or your notebook will oft shut down due to critical hardware temperature.

Anyway, I would like to check if newer driver is available on Toshiba support page but you must post full model name of your notebook (C660-xxx).

Why Toshiba not sell this laptop whit one CD drivers? Why my model of laptop dont exist in the list........for download all drivers

Plz help me !

Answer:Satellite C660-2DZ no drivers


The drivers for Satellite C660 PSC1NE can be found on the Toshiba European driver page.

But I found just the Win 7 64bit drivers.. however it?s not the big problem to get Win 7 32bit drivers? you can use the Win 7 drivers released for the C660 PSC1GE series.
The Toshiba tools like Value Added Package, Flash Card Support Utility should function also on your model.

You should pay attention to some other drivers like display driver. The C660-2DZ supports the Intel? HD Intel? HD Graphics 3000 and Mobile Intel(R) HM65 Express Chipset? both drivers (or just the HM65) could be downloaded from Intel page.

Furthermore the notebook supports Realtek Wlan card and the driver can be found also here

I am having an issue with the keyboard on my Satellite c660 laptop, part number: PSC1LE.
The best way I can describe it is as a stuttering problem because it comes and go's (fine for a few hours, then not for a short while).

The problem is that for reasons unknown to me I keep encountering a problem where the A, N and Enter keys do not work when pressed. Occasionally pressing the key repeatedly (they aren't jammed) just makes the letter come out, but I can't keep pressing the key five or six times to get one letter. Just to mention, I have not spilled anything on the keyboard.

I have done full anti-virus and spyware scans but have found no issues.
I have this evening done all of the windows updates available to me, however it doesn't seem to have done the trick.

After restarting the device following the updates all worked well for about 15 minutes, until the same three keys stopped working again. On this occasion it lasted only for a couple of minutes, and now I am writing this with the same keyboard.

Note: I am not using the original keyboard. I changed the board due to minor material damage but had it done privately.
However this was done the better part of a year ago and has worked perfectly since being installed, until this new issue occurred in the last few weeks.

If anyone has any further recommendations or suggestions as to what may be the cause or any solutions then please share them.

Answer:Satellite C660 - Keyboard issue

I think you would understand that nobody is able to say why your keyboard malfunctions.
Only if the notebook hardware has been checked/scanned, it would be possible to say what?s wrong here?
But generally speaking there is a good workaround to diagnose the problem.

You could connect the external USB keyboard to the notebook and could check if the same problems with the mentioned buttons will occur.

In case the external USB keyboard would work properly, I think that your internal keyboard is the troublemaker? in such case you would need to replace the keyboard once again.

Hi there,

I have purchased a Satellite C660-17J and occasionally when I turn it on (holding the power button for 2 or three seconds and then releasing) - it doesn't seem to power on properly eg - fan starts - power light comes on - but not screen. If I hold the power button again it goes off. Then if I try again it will come on but the date and time resets itself to 2008.

Any ideas or will I have to send it back to Amazon as faulty? (could do without doing that!).

Answer:Satellite C660-17J - Power on issue

Hi ebarnyard,

When you connect an external screen, can you see something on it or is it still black as internal screen?

> Then if I try again it will come on but the date and time resets itself to 2008.
Do you mean the time of Windows or BIOS?

Generally speaking I must say this is no normal behavior and in my opinion it?s something wrong with hardware itself. So I would contact an authorized service provider in your country and ask the guys to check your notebook what?s wrong with it because hardware repair is for free due warranty time ;)

Hey Guys,

I've been having an on and off issue with my touchpad for at least a couple of months now. I've tried doing the function +F9 thing with little effect. I also re-downloaded the synaptics driver which seems to make it work for a little while but then it started working only sporadically.

Currently my touchpad works some of the time, if it fails at first pressing Ctrl Alt Del and then Esc seems to make it work for a little while longer but after that it simply stops working. I'm a student and not having a fully functioning laptop is often a great hindrance so any help would be great.



Answer:Satellite Pro C660 - on and off issue with the Touchpad


My first question is: when did you notice this touchpad issue.

I mean, the Sat Pro C660 is an older notebook and if this issue did not appear from first day of purchase, then something has affected the touchpad functionality in the past.

The question is: is there something wrong with software or maybe touchpad module.
I think this can be answered only settings the notebook back to factory state.
If you recover the notebook using Toshiba recover disk, you will get exactly the same state like at the first day of purchase.

If touchpad would still not work properly, well then there is some hardware problem

Hi I have just recently been provided a Satellite C660 for my further education, though I do believe in my haste to get it set up how I like to set up my computers I might of turned off the hot-keys now reading about on this forum I have found that to make them work again I will need to allow TOSHIBA Button Support to run at start up, but no matter how hard i try to find it on msconfig it no longer seems to be there, any one have any ideas about where I could find it on the C drive?

Though one of the strangest things I have noticed about this problem is that the volume hot-keys still work perfectly its just the rest of them.


Just to let other people out there know I think I have solved my problem, here is the process I used to fix the hot-key issue.

Start menu - -> write msconfig in the search box on vista or windows 7 (if using XP type it into the run box) --> go to start up --> look for KeNotify Application and select it to run at start up.

There you have it it seemed to fix my issue so I hope it helps you out.

Hi all!

I have Toshiba Satellite C660-1GK for about year and a half. After 6 months my hard disk drive died.

First the laptop got really slow and then started the famous clicking sound from the disk.
I've made backup and checked the drive with Hirens tools. Toshiba diag won't even read it, S.M.A.R.T. said that his health is poor (30% or so), bad sectors started popping out.. so I've took the laptop to my ASP.

They replaced the disk and then, 13 months later (a week ago) the same story! Disk health went even lower (was at 11%) and bad sectors started jumping out like maniacs.
Again a trip to ASP.

I've got my laptop today with a new disk. After reading posts on this forum, I'm worried that it's or motherboard/power supply problem or we're just all with bad luck with drives.

I just can't accept that disks randomly die every 4-12 months as an answer. My last disk on HP laptop lasted 4 years! I have about five more months of warranty and I'm really not happy with situation. This laptop is on my work desk, has it's own station with a nice, big fan so it's not overheating - basically I've took it out of house last September.

I'm careful with it! But if this drive dies before end of year, maybe it's time to get a new laptop.
Not Toshiba this time :(

Please, do you have any thoughts, advices..?

Answer:Satellite C660-1GK - HDD partition C issue


Some years ago i purchased an notebook from another manufacturer.
My first HDD died after more than 2 years of usage. I bought another one, replaced the old HDD and the new HDD died after 4 month of usage.

Any HDD will die sooner or later because its expendable part? it?s a matter of HDD usage and matter of how you handle the unit.

In my opinion it?s a bad luck? of course its always pity if an HDD start to malfunction but I?m afraid there are no many options to prevent it.
Of course you could switch to an SSD drive which is much stable in use. I did it some month ago? I purchased the 250GB SSD drive and replaced the internal HDD

i am having a kind of software glitch on my laptop. when i turned it on, it showed a message with options either to launch startup repair (recommended) or start windows normally. i chose the first option as that seem to be the recommended option and i thought this might repair if there was any damage. however, after the repair process was completed, it showed an error message with steps to install Windows. i am getting this message now everytime i turn my laptop on!

Since i have the software pre-isntalled on my laptop, i do not have the Windows 7 disc with me. this is really strange as i am unsure why this happened.

Although my laptop is covered with the warranty, i am not sure if it covers the software warranty too?

Looks like something has gone wrong with the installed OS.
Not sure why but it seems that you need to reinstall the windows once again.

> ince i have the software pre-isntalled on my laptop, i do not have the Windows 7 disc with me. this is really strange as i am unsure why this happened.

You did not receive any disks because the notebook supports the HDD recovery and additionally there was/is a option to create a own recover disk.
You could use the Recover disk creator software in order to create such disks?
But not sure if this would be possible now because of the error?

So would recommend starting the HDD recover as described here.

if am i just surfing on internet, temperature of notebook is about 40-60 degress, but if am i gaming it goes quickly up (65-75)
- maybe after 2 hours gaming temperature goes up and i must quit game.
If temperature is about 75 degress, computer started to be noisy and i think it goes down..

What i have to do?

Answer:Re: Satellite C660-11W - overheating issue

After reading your posting I don?t know what the problem is. The temperature you mentioned in your posting is not on critical level so I think there is no reason for panic.

When you want to play the game, close all useless applications, switch to high performance power plan and be sure notebook is placed properly on the desk. Cooling fans should not be blocked and notebook must be able to ?take a breath?.

Until there is no ?unexpected switch off? there is no reason for panic.

It asks me to select a keyboard layout and then enter my username and password to procede with HDD Recovery. It is this lack of password which is the reason for recovery.

Any advice on what I can do?

On this step you must enter your Windows login name and login password. Without right password you will not be able to start HDD recovery installation.

There is second option to install recovery image. You can do it now using recovery DVD. Have you created it using preinstalled Toshiba recovery disc creator?

When my wife got off the plane a baggage handler helped her by pushing her mother in the wheelchair and dragging one of the bags behind him allowing my wife to take care of the rest of the luggage. Unfortunately the laptop that was sitting on top of that bag decided that it didn't like the ride, it jumped off the bag and tried to enter the terminal under its own battery power.

There is no visible damage to the laptop as it was inside the laptop bag and no cracks or anything on the screen. When the laptop turns on, the screen can remain blank, flicker or it will display the log on and desktop but instead of showing white it displays a pinkish purple, only white is affected not off white. Other colours display correctly although they do look as if the display is set to 256 colour or using the wrong driver.

I connected an external monitor to it and that works fine with full colour. If the laptop screen flickers a light tap to the back of it will get it to stay on but the colour isn't corrected. I am thinking that it may be just a loose connection or broken wire between the screen and the motherboard but not sure if the change in colour would be caused by this.

Answer:Satellite C660 - screen issue


On this virtual way it is not possible to say for sure what is wrong there. Your notebook must be disassembled and all must be checked. Graphic card seems to be OK so there must be some problem with connectors, cable or with the display itself.
>Satellite C660 (PSC1LA-00J001) looks brand new but I don't think it would be worth taking in to get fixed.
Why not? Even display exchange is not so problematic. Googling around you will find many online stores where you can order new display, if necessary. Even on eBay you can get it for reasonable price.

If you don't have experience with this stuff I recommend you to contact nearest Toshiba service provider or some independent IT service and ask for help. Check which options are available and how much you must pay for repair.

Answer:Satellite C660-1F1 - Question about newer drivers and memory speed

Hi cryogenized,

> Some of drivers conserning this laptop are outdated compared to latest drivers on device manufacters site. Is it safe to use these newer drivers or is it recommended to stick with the older drivers that are on Toshiba site?
Why you want to update your drivers? Do you expect a performance boost with newer drivers?

Generally speaking with the official drivers from Toshiba you are on the safely side because they are pretested. So you can make sure they work properly and don?t cause any hardware damages. Installation of other drivers happens on your own risk!

> And second question: Is there a way to getting memory working the fastest possible supported? BIOS options don?t include any options for memory settings.

The notebook is equipped with 1066 MHz DDR3 modules and the RAM speed is depending on FSB of CPU. If your CPU is throttling down, the RAM modules will also run on lower speed. On high CPU usage (100%) the RAM modules should run with 1066MHz speed I think.

Last year I purchased a Satellite C660-1G3 laptop from UK; even today, I am using the factory settings, and running the originally installed Windows 7 OS. The following is the issue that I started facing yesterday onwards:
- Even when the battery is well-plugged and the laptop running, the Power Meter indicates a falling charge level, with the "Plugged in, Not Charging" notification. The orange LED keeps blinking

- However, when I completely shut-down the laptop, without touching anything (not even touching the adapter or the power cord), the orange LED indicating battery charging process stops blinking and becomes stable

- On re-starting the laptop, for about 1 minute or so, the battery appears to be charging (orange LED not blinking and "Plugged in, Charging" message). However, soon the orange LED again starts blinking and the nuisance message again comes up

A couple of things:
- the battery seems to be working fine and charging properly when laptop is shutdown (in fact, till a couple of days back, the battery used to show 2:30 hours of time available on 100% charged level)
- is there some issue with the Operating system? no idea on that

can experts help me in resolving this issue? I do not really want to approach the Service Center due to long distance involved.

- Biren

Answer:Re: Satellite C660-1G3 - "Plugged in, Not Charging" issue

Hi Biren

Not sure if I can help you but I would like to provide you some tips.

1) Check if your BIOS is up to date. If Toshiba European driver page provides newer version, then update the BIOS. Additionally set the BIOS to default pressing F9 and save changed pressing F10.
2) Try to calibrate the battery. To calibrate the battery you should discharge the battery completely and charge the battery again. Repeat this procedure 2-3 times in the row.
3) Remove the battery and AC adaptor and press power button (30 sec long) then connect both parts and check if the LED would start blinking again.

Finally I think that the notebook should be tested using new, good working battery. But if the issue would still persist, then I would assume that your motherboard might be affected.

I have left it for 40 mins to run but it did not get back to normal state. As motherboard fan has started to move on high speed I decided to take battery out. In result when I power back my laptop I have 1 beep from the motherboard and black screen.

Can some one help me please ?

Answer:Satellite C660-13R - BIOS update issue

Obviously the BIOS update procedure has failed. Something went wrong during the update process and it looks like the EMRPOM module has not been flashed properly.
This is the reason why the notebook does not work anymore.

Possible solution?
Well, if EMPROM isn?t damage, it should be possible to re-flash the BIOS module once again using special BIOS version and BIOS crisis disk.
Usually the Toshiba authorized service provider in your country should be able to re-flash the module using such crisis disk.

I read also in this forum that some people managed to re-flash the EPROM module using some 3rd party crisis disk found somewhere in the internet? but this did not work always?
So probably the ASP will be your last resort?

However, use the forums advanced search option to find related threads about the BIOS crisis disk? could be interesting for you

Good day, fellow Toshiba notebook owners.

I have a little trouble upgrading my BIOS to a "newer" (according to Tempro) version.
I just installed the Tempro application, and it detected that my BIOS needs an upgrade, so I naturally downloaded the "new" BIOS. Everything went fine, but when I tried to install it, a message popped up in the install window:

"*The program will be closed!* There is an error occurred, please check below items. Bios version above 190. Battery capacity more than 10%. AC is attached."

No matter what I do, I get the same error, over and over again. I looked the problem up before I posted this thread, and other people encountered it, but, unlike my case, advices like "Close all background applications", "Charge your battery", or "Make sure the AC is attached" really helped them.

I tried closing everything, my battery is always fully charged, as I rarely disconnect the AC adapter, and, of course, the AC connection issue is not the cause, since it is almost always plugged in.

I checked my BIOS version in +msinfo32.exe+ and it is 1.90 already, but I remember upgrading it months ago (sooner than the release date of this last version), and if, hypothetically, I have the last version already installed, why doesn't Tempro acknowledge it and keeps alerting me over a non-existent issue?

Maybe there is something wrong with Tempro, but I just need to be sure before... Read more

Answer:Satellite C660 - 1C7: BIOS upgrade issue


Tempro notify you about new uploaded drivers or BIOS?
The Toshiba European driver page provides all the drivers and BIOS files and the latest BIOS version 1.90-win has been uploaded at 04.06.2012 and therefore you received this notification by Tempro software.

Who knows why they uploaded this file once again.. but fact is that your BIOS is up to date and therefore you cannot update the BIOS once again using the one and the same version.

The notebook seems to support the NVIDIA GeForce 315M

I checked the Toshiba European driver page and not all Win 7 32bit drivers are released on the European driver page? I think you tried to install wrong or not compatible graphic card driver and therefore this error message appeared while installing the drivers.

But it seems that Win 7 64bit driver is available for this series therefore I would recommend testing the driver for Win 7 64bit.
The SM bus controller might be the Card reader and in such case you should install the Card Reader Controller driver from Realtek. There is also an Win 7 64bit driver version available on European driver page?

Test it simply?

Can someone please help,

I recently bought a Toshiba Satellite C660/C660D for my nephew, We have forgotten the administrator password and we don't have password reset disk is there anyway around this.


Answer:I forgot my administrator password on Satellite C660/C660


I assume you are talking about windows system password and not about BIOS password. Right?
It?s not very big problem if you forgotten the System password but if you mean BIOS password then you are in trouble because the BIOS password can be deleted just by an Toshiba ASP technicians?

So I assume you mean Windows password? so start the notebook and press F8
Now you can choose Repair my Computer and then choose HDD recovery.
This would start a HDD recovery procedure which would reinstall the system? during the setup you can set anther admin password.

Of course there are some other methods but as far as I know this requires 3rd party software/tools or Win 7 DVD? so I think the HDD recovery is the fastest solution.

Answer:Need XP graphic drivers for Satellite 5200-902

So what?s the problem??
Why did you download the display driver from the Toshiba page?

There you should search in the ?Archive? -> ?Satellite Archive? -> Satellite 52** -> Sat 5200-902 -> Win XP

At this time the nVidia display driver version 43.36 is available.

I have a Satellite Pro A40 with on board Intel 82852/82855 graphics. the current graphics driver on the Toshiba site is (Dated 19 December 2003), but the current driver for this graphics card is 6.14.19.**** (Dated 8 February 2006).

I was trying to instal pivot software for an external monitor, and needed to update the grahics drivers, so I downloaded the reference drivers from the Intel site. These refused to install, so I checked the Toshiba site.

The question is, Why are the Toshiba drivers so out of date, and is there any intention to update them in the near future?

Answer:Satellite Pro A40: Why are the graphic drivers out of the date

Hi David

Very good question. I also wonder why some graphic card drivers are out of date.
I have read many postings in this forum and it seems that the Toshiba graphic drivers are not similar with the original manufacture graphic card drivers.
The Toshiba graphic drivers are a little bit modified. The graphic cards on the notebook are different as the desktop graphic cards. The notebook cards don't have an own cooling module and therefore drivers controls the performance and the producing of warmness.

Sometimes different notebooks are delivered with the same graphic card. In this case it's a good idea to check the other drivers which are designed for the different notebooks with the same graphic card

I have a problem with my laptop, and more precisely with the AMD graphic drivers.
My laptop has a ATI Radeon HD 5650, and i can't update the graphic drivers. Recently i bought Battlefield 3, and i have to update the drivers to completely enjoy the game (because i have some screen-lag and control delays issues).
The problem is that i can't install the official (and latest) drivers via the AMD website ... Apparently the only way to update these drivers, is to install the official Toshiba ones ... but there last drivers was in February 2011.

Someone can help me ? How to install the latest drivers without passing by the Toshiba support, and dirctly by AMD ?

Answer:Satellite P30: Not updated graphic drivers

What to say buddy? all available graphic drivers are placed on the Toshiba European driver page. It seems that other divers don?t exist.

So if the driver placed on the Toshiba European driver page is too old to run the game then you have not many choices?
Sometimes different notebook series are equipped with the same graphic card. So check the units which support the same card and try to use the drivers for such units?

At the other side you could try some drivers from a 3rd party websites but I assume that these drivers are not tested and not certified and therefore you could use it only at your own risk?

Hi everyone,
I've got some trouble to launch the game SuperMeatBoy so i decided to check out my Satellite L300's drivers.
Using Toshiba Tempro : nothing new, "your laptop is up to date"
But when i check Intel's website for any new firmware for "Mobile Intel? 4 Series Express Chipset Family" (the graphic chipset on Toshiba Satellite L300) there's something interesting : my current driver is and there's a driver available since 10/23/2010... It could be great for me. But when I want to install it, a error window says that this driver is not signed by Toshiba and cannot be installed...

Here's the driver i want to install : ang=eng

Ad what i get when a use Intel's autoupdater : "A customized computer manufacturer driver is installed on your computer. The Intel Driver Update Utility is not able to update the driver. Installing a generic Intel driver instead of the customized computer manufacturer driver may cause technical issues. Contact your computer manufacturer for the latest driver for your computer."

What can i do ?

Thanks .

Answer:Satellite L300 - Cannot upgrade the graphic drivers

Try to install this driver via device manager.
There you have to choose advanced installation procedure and have to point to the driver files stored on the HDD.
This will force the OS to choose this driver.

Answer:New graphic card drivers for Satellite P200

I have P200D with same graphic card and I still use Toshiba driver. I am not focused on gaming and for my favorite games like COD2, COD4, Max Payne 2, NFS Most wanted and El Matador is OK. the graphic performance is good and I didn?t notice any problems.

Do you want to update graphic card driver just because of gaming?

By the way: for mobile computing it is always recommended to use manufacturer?s drivers because those drivers are adapted on each notebook model and they have also important function to protect hardware and avoid overheating. Using some other drivers the graphic card can be forced to run on the highest limit. I believe you know what can be the result of that.

If you will not have any problems after graphic card upgrade please let me know.

Answer:Problem with updating graphic drivers on Satellite A200 - 1M8


Notebook manufacturers used different display drivers and all of them are adapted for mobile computing. Notebook design is pretty different and all hardware components are placed on small place. Notebook manufacturer must take care about overheating and hardware protecting.

Usage of some other drivers can result with hardware overheating, suddenly shutdowns or even with hardware damage. Because of that there is a mechanism to avoid non-Toshiba display driver installation.

Maybe something wring with the graphic card?
IF this issue will appear again connect it to an external monitor to check if the same will appear on the second display.
If this issue will not appear on the external monitor then either the notebook display or the FL inverter malfunctions.

However, both cases the authorized service provider in you country should be contacted because this could be a hardware problem and the faulty part should be replaced.

Hello everyone,
I apologize for my English, I'm not an English-speaking.

2 months ago, my notebook didn't want to boot.
I call the After Sale Service which tell me to send it in repair.
No problem : my notebook came me back and it worked fine.

Now there is a *new* (graphic) problem : sometimes, and I don't now why, the screen is dirty.
One can see white traces and white little dots everywhere on the screen, especially near the icons.
It's rather than difficult to explain precisely in English.
I attempted to make a screen, but the bug don't appear on it ; I will try a photo tomorrow...

To make them disappear, I have just to close the screen, which make my notebook hibernating, and when I open it up (immediately), all is good.
+Damned, the bug have just came back !!+

Did someone had this bug ?

But if you will not notice any improvements then an ASP call is needed
