Preferred Solution: I can't find Satellite C660-20L on Toshiba support page?

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 http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: I can't find Satellite C660-20L on Toshiba support page?

You mean you cannot find it on Toshiba download page - http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com/innovation/download_drivers_bios.jsp ?

Your notebook has model name and model number. For your notebook it is PSC1LE. Can you find it?

I have a laptop Toshiba L500-1UU Short model no: PSLS9E. Initially my product had a short model number in the Toshiba support page.

but I can not find now, removed from the list. Toshiba does not support this product?

Answer:I can not find Satellite L500-1UU PSLS9E on Toshiba support page

Hi

What do you mean exactly by ?Toshiba does not support this product??
I found Toshiba drivers for this notebook model? so this means that Toshiba DOES support this model.

You can find the drivers on the Toshiba European driver page:

Hello!

I have support problems with my notebook..
When I try to get support or register my Satellite, I can find my model number/serial number on any toshiba site.

When i try to valide serial number; i get this: "Spiacenti! Il numero di serie non esiste." Why???
I need drivers and software.. but i can't find it..

Model No: L500-158
Serial No: 89434057K
Part No: PSLJ3E-028023IT

Please help..

p.s. sorry for my bad English..

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

Hi

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

Check this:
+Why does TEMPRO not accept my serial number as being valid?+
http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/kb0/FAQ0102S40000R01.htm


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

Hi guys,

please do me a favour. i am in Dubai, i bought my Toshiba laptop in Dubai. That is Satellite A300-1G5, Sr.No. 98487056Q.
The problem is: whenever i try to find my laptop in Toshiba help and support web site, it is not detecting my machine.

I have tried Auto detect, putting serial no in the box, both option, but all returns with the same result---- not available in region.

Until I detect my machine I am unable to identify the exact driver and so cannot check for updates.
It is strange that Toshiba laptop is not getting found by Toshiba website.

Can anybody help me?

Answer:Satellite A300-1G5 is not detected on Toshiba support page

It can happen that system somehow cannot identify notebook model but for drivers download it is just important to know first part of the part number.
So your notebook belongs to PSAG4E series and on Toshiba download page you can define exact notebook model and see which drivers are available.

Have you tried to choose your product manually?

Hi everybody

I bought a laptop TOSHIBA Sattellite from a supermarket, but when I wanted to download the drivers from TOSHIBA official site, I did not find my pc in the list of drivers or in any page of the site, even with the automatic detection, knowing that reference of the laptop is TOSHIBA Satellite C55-A-19K.

Now I want to know is that normal, or am I a victim of an imitation product.

Answer:Cannot find my Satellite C55-A-19K on Toshiba page

As I can see this notebook model was delivered without preinstalled operating system so I presume you want to find drivers, tools and utilities on Toshiba download page - http://www.toshiba.eu/innovation/download_drivers_bios.jsp

Your notebook model is listed there but you must watch which criteria you must choose. As you can see you cannot search for C55-A-19K but for Satellite C55-A with part number PSCG8E.

Please check it again.

Hi

Does anyone know if there is any support for this laptop? It is A 220 Satellite and I can't find anything anywhere of this site. Its strikes me as a bit poor to see that there is no support at the moment.

Did anyone else have this same problem with the A series laptop when they first purchased one? I am curious to know!

Edited by: ADMIN

Answer:Can not find anything on the support page for new Satellite A220

Few months ago the same was written by A200 users and now support is there. It is just meter of time and I think that support for notebooks produced before your one must be finished.

You will see that after few weeks (I hope) you will be able to download all stuff for your A220.

My daughter's laptop keeps freezing; I have used the internal `Repair' to set it back to the factory settings, but it is still the same. I have been told that it is a common symptom of a faulty hard drive, for which I was quoted approx £170.00 to replace and install the operating system. I am not a computer technician, but as I was a tv engineer, so feel that fitting a new HDD is within my capabilities, and as a replacement HDD from Toshiba is £80, this seems the logical thing to do; however before I buy a new HDD, can anyone tell me if it is correct that the freezing may be the result of it failing? I would just like the opinion of other people with computer knowledge before I spend my money, and I will not blame anyone if I choose to follow their advice and it doesn't cure the problem.
Any advice would be very welcome.

Hi phant0m2012,

have you tried right clicking on the driver with a yellow triangle and select update this driver?

Normally there shouldn't be this kind of a problem on a newly installed system, or at least the computers I've installed this problem always appears later on.

Here is the latest lan driver for your laptop: support1.toshiba-tro.de/tedd-files2/0/lan-20101130110923.zip

Answer:Satellite C660 - no OpenGL support

I think the current graphic card driver does not support the OpenGL but only DirectX standard.
To me it looks like you have to install the graphic card driver from Intel page.

I don?t know what Intel CPU you have and therefore it?s not known to me what Intel GPU driver you need.

However, I think it should not be a big issue to find the compatible driver on Intel page.

By the way: the installation should be performed within the device manager.

Thanks in advance...

Answer:Does Satellite C660 support Windows 8

> If windows 8 is supported in my laptop, then please gave me supported drivers link also.

Even if your Satellite C660 would not officially support Win 8, you can install this system because the notebook meets the essential system requirements which are:

? Processor: 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster with support for PAE, NX, and SSE2
? RAM: 1 gigabyte (GB) (32-bit) or 2 GB (64-bit)
? Hard disk space: 16 GB (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit)
? Graphics card: Microsoft DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM driver

Hello,

I was wondering if anyone would be able to help me with getting a new processor.
I was looking at intel processors and made a thread asking if i could get a certian processor, i got a reply at what intel processors fit the port in my laptop but he said that i would have to ask what the highest processor that my laptop is able to support.

So can anyone tell me what the highest processors my laptop cna support thanks.

Answer:What is the highest CPU that Satellite C660-2LK can support?

Notebook manufacturers don?t support the CPU upgrade and therefore there are no information about the possible and compatible CPUs.

But fact is that a CPU upgrade depends on some view factors: first of all the new CPU has to be supported by the chipset which is part of the motherboard. Secondly the BIOS must support the new CPU.
In case one of the parts would not handle new CPU, the notebook would not function.

So first of all I would recommend you to check the chipset support.
The unit seems to support the Mobile Intel(R) HM65 Express Chipset
On the Intel ark page http://ark.intel.com/products/52808 under the point ?Compatible Product? you will find the compatible and supported CPUs.

But even if you would use the CPU supported by chipset, there might be an compatibility problem with the BIOS. I have no idea what CPUs are supported by BIOS because as I said above: such informations aren?t published by notebook manufacturers.

Therefore such CPU upgrade is always risky.

Answer:Satellite C660 - All models with same support?

Hello

The support is always the same, even you buy the notebook from supermarket or electronic store or ASP.

The warranty time is always the same and depending on your country. Sometimes it?s possible to get a free warranty extension if you register the notebook on official Toshiba page.

If you would have a hardware issue, an authorized service provider can fix the problem for you. It?s free when your notebook is under warranty.

Adobe After Effects always crash on startup.
It says it cannot initialize OpenGL and that I should contact the manufacturer of the Graphics adapter.

So I contact Intel because I got a Intel Hd Graphics adapter but they say the driver I already have is custom tuned for Toshiba. So I search on Toshiba but cannot really find any useful link.

Should I install OpenGL manually or can I disable it somehow without starting After Effect?
How do I installOpenGl manually?

I have downloaded the latest Graphics adapter driver from you but it doesn't help.
All I want to do is to start a popular Adobe product so I believe many people have this problem.

Answer:OpenGL driver for Toshiba Satellite C660-1J2 ?

Hi

OpenGL is a standard API for writing software for 2D or 3D computer graphics.
OpenGL is an open source product but DirectX is released by Microsoft and mostly DirectX is part of the graphic card driver and not OpenGL.

However, you cannot ?download and install? OpenGL to use it within the graphic card driver? the OpenGL needs to be implemented in the driver?

Mostly it?s done by graphic card manufacture.
Therefore you will need to check the Intel page to get an driver from Intel which supports OpenGL because the notebook supports the Intel (HM55) HD graphics.

This link detects which driver updates are relevant to your computer and then helps you install them quickly and easily.

Hello There,

I recently purchased a Satellite C660/C660D everything is fine, apart from one or two minor issues (which this thread is about). Firstly, The laptop was and still is littered with loads of TOSHIBA random software, below is a list:

+TOSHIBA Assist+
+TOSHIBA Bulletin Board+
+TOSHIBA ConfigFree+
+TOSHIBA Disc Creator+
+TOSHIBA Face Recognition+
+TOSHIBA Flash Cards Support Utility+
+TOSHIBA Hardware Setup+

+TOSHIBA Media Controller+
+TOSHIBA Media Controller Plug-in+
+TOSHIBA Online Product Information+
+TOSHIBA Recovery Media Creator+
+TOSHIBA Recovery Media Creator Reminder+
+TOSHIBA ReelTime+
+TOSHIBA Service Station+
+TOSHIBA Supervisor Password+
+Toshiba TEMPRO+
+TOSHIBA Value Added Package+
+TOSHIBA Web Camera Application+

Is there a pre made ISO recovery image somewhere or do I have to make my own, because if I decide to unisntall some of these programs I might need it at a later date?

The second issue is with the TOSHIBA Accessiblity application which shows the FN keys, it does not seem to start. It worked the first day then I disabled all TOSHIBA applications from startup and I get the following error: "Registry is missing or may be broken.", I dont know why!

I have tried cleaning the registry, so the registry isnt broken.

Answer:Satellite C660 - TOSHIBA Accessibility Error

Hi Humza,

I?m happy to hear that you?re an owner of Toshiba notebook too and you discovered the forum here. We can discuss everything about Toshiba notebooks, that?s interesting :)

I will try to help you to sort this out:

1.Yes, there is a premade recovery image to restore factory settings with all driver and tools on your notebook but important is you burn this image on a blank DVD using preinstalled recovery media creator. You will get a disk with an image of Windows with all drivers and tools => ?out of box settings?. So the same settings as you purchased the computer.

2.I think the FN keys don?t work anymore because you disabled some important Toshiba tools they are necessary for FN keys. For FN keys the startup items ?TOSHIBA Button Support? and ?TOSHIBA Flash Cards? are absolutely necessary so you should enable them and restart the computer.

I bought a VGA cable to connect my laptop to my TV in order to mirror what ever is on my laptop screen. My TV did not pick up anything when I checked the Sources.

I opened the "Action Centre" on my laptop and selected "Project". I changed the current setting of "Duplicate" to "Second Screen Only", this caused my laptop screen to go black when the VGA cable was connected. When I disconnected the VGA cable my laptop screen came back on. This frustrating because I want to change it back to "Duplicate" but it is impossible to navigate while the VGA cable is plugged in because of the black screen.

note that when i changed it to "second Screen Only" my TV still did not pick up my laptop.

SmartFaceVWatcher.exe belongs to the Toshiba software and I think this related to face recognition utility.
To be honest I?m not quite sure what cause the error message but I recommend doing this;
- Uninstall face recognition utility
- Clean the OS using CCleaner (its freeware tool)
- Reboot several times and install the face recognition utility again
- Reboot the notebook, run once again CCleaner and then start the face recognition utility

Hi Tech Guys,
I have a friends laptop that I am trying to fix, their laptop HDD is failing which has been confirmed by Crystalmark and the Toshiba HDD/SDD monitor tool. I have a spare HDD lieing around which I would like to replace it with but I want to clone/backup the files first. I tried using acronis clone image but when I place the HDD in the laptop it does not recognise the new HDD, could it be due to the fact that the HDD has to be a OEM HDD set as the OS drive? I'm stuck as the laptop will not allow me to use my external HDD to backup the files manually. Not sure what to do next even tried to backup the files via my network using easy to transfer tool but it cannot find my PC please help thanks.
 

Answer:Solved: Toshiba Satellite C660-18C - HDD failure

When you clone with acronis, there are some things you need to do;
1 Boot the system using an acronis boot CD/flash drive. I always recommend doing a clone, image, etc from the boot disk rather than from within windows. It just removes one more layer of complexity from the task.
2 The new hard drive must be blank ie no partition info on the drive at all. You may need to zero fill the drive IF it was previously used.
3 Select source [old drive] and destination [new drive]
4 Complete the clone process and shutdown. DO NOT reboot with both drives connected.
5 Swap hd and pw ON. Make sure drive letters are correct, system boots without errors, etc.

Since this is a laptop, I would do the clone with A/C pw connected. Once finished with the clone, shutdown and remove both A/C and battery prior to swapping drives. Modern systems apply pw even when OFF so you want to be sure there is no pw applied when you are swapping drives or working on the system. Most [if not all] of the time, swapping drives in a laptop with the battery installed would not hurt anything however completely removing pw prior to working on the system is a VERY good habit to get into.

Answer:toshiba satellite c660 black screen on xp

Hi mw_86 and welcome to TSG.

Have you tried an external Monitor ? I would do that first if possible and if it's display is good carry on below.

With those symptoms if that model has an Inverter I would try switching it with a known working one.
You should find some on Ebay. (I've had good luck even with used ones).

If it does have an Inverter it could be the backlight instead but that's usually much more difficult to replace.

If it's an LED model (ie no Inverter or Backlight) I would guess either the LEDs have failed or they aren't getting power from the motherboard.

Hey,

So basically i have a Satellite C660, and it came loaded with a iso on drive D. So whenever i need to clean my system i can just use the iso from drive d and it will be like new again. However i hate all this toshiba bloatware it installs and all other stupid stuff, so i was wondering if i got a windows 7 disk, and like booted the laptop up from the disk, and installed windows 7 from it without all the stupid stuff, would everything still work as normal? or what?

Thanks.

Answer:Satellite C660 - Can I use own Win7 without Toshiba bloatware?

Generally speaking you can do with your notebook whatever you want and nobody force you to use preinstalled stuff. You can install own Win7 version and if you install all necessary drivers it will works without any problems.

Please note: for this own Win7 version you must have valid licence for product activation and before you start installation create recovery DVD for recovery image back-up. After your Win7 installation you will not be able to start recovery image installation from HDD.

What I do, and can also recommend to you and all other people, is preinstalled OS optimization. Use original Win7 but remove all stuff you don?t need. After doing this you will have original, activated OS that will run much faster and without some ?useless? stuff.

This question relates to a Toshiba Satellite Pro C660-1UX Laptop running Windows 7 Home Premium Service Pack 1.

Some of the onboard keys (E, T, U, I, O, A, B, N, together with the Enter key) fail to register. All of the other keys tested so far appear to register normally.

When connecting an external USB keyboard, all keys function properly. However, when using either the onboard keyboard or the external USB keyboard, it is necessary to hold down whatever key is selected for approx 2-3 seconds in order for its character to register. This makes typing incredibly slow and is understandably unacceptable.

I've checked device manager looking for errors, but am unable to find any. The driver for the keyboard is listed as installed and working properly, and driver update says that the latest version is in already in use.

I have also scanned for viruses using Malware Bytes and Spybot, and also with the laptops own pre-installed antivirus software. All of the full system scans return a no threat found message.

I have read that the keyboards on these machines are prone to failure, which could answer why only certain onboard keys function. The fact that all keys on the external USB keyboard work would seem to confirm this. However, the fact that both onboard and external keyboard is affected by the same slow keypress might also suggest a bios problem - but as this laptop is several years old and has been working perfectly, why would bios suddenly cause this problem.

Installed not licensed, there was no way out, on the Microsoft website, to download the image failure, the key from the laptop is not suitable. Not a licensed image, there was no desire to put, the assembly is an assembly, naturally installed such an operating system behaved badly, buggy. Done, and now the laptop does not work.

Hey ive got a C660 here,
So my sister installed windows 8 and deleted the original windows 7 partition and now she wants to go back to windows 7 but whenever she presses F8 and goes into 'repair my computer' the toshiba hdd recovery wizard isnt there anymore. How can I get this back? The HDD Recovery partition is still there though. Any ideas?

Cheers.

Answer:Satellite C660 - missing Toshiba HDD Wizard

HDD recovery installation works with ?factory settings? only. After Win8 installation this will not work anymore. Recovery image can be on the HDD but it is not possible to start HDD recovery image installation.

Only way to install recovery image again is usage of recovery DVD. I presume your sister didn?t create it in the past. Now she must order original recovery DVD from https://backupmedia.toshiba.eu/landing.aspx

If you have more questions you are welcome.

My Toshiba Satellite Notebook C660/01C PSC0LA-01C01H came with Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit installed. I later upgraded to Windows 7 Professional 32-bit.

This supports a maximum of 4 Gb RAM.
The Celeron Dual-Core T3500 CPU supports 64-bit processing according to the Celeron and C660 specs.

Will the other hardware and firmware -- data bus and BIOS, etc. -- support 64-bit memory addressing if I install Windows 7 Professional 64-bit. CAN I even install Win7 64-bit?

Hello admin,

Hi Folks,

A colleague passed me his poorly laptop (the Toshiba C660-18C of the title) as he is unable to connect to the internet after the re-installation of Windows 7 HP 32-bit.

Story so far...

His computer was slow - full of junk and stuff - so he asked me if I had a Win 7 disk for him to start again with a clean install.

I provided him with a disk and the re-installation went without a hitch - except now there aren't any drivers for the Ethernet NIC or WiFi and so he is unable to connect by either wired connection or wireless.

I've had a look and can't figure out what the problem is.

Device manager doesn't give any info - nothing like 'Realtek PCIe EE Family Controller' or 'Realtek RTL8188CE Wireless LAN 802.11n PCI-E NIC' that appear on my wife's Toshiba C660. Also there is no 'Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter' (not sure if that is needed). There is no description at all of the hardware.

I have found from the Toshiba UK website the following drivers and installed them, but still no joy.
The Network Device ID Registry Setting Tool, Realtek Semiconductor Corporation LAN Driver, Toshiba Wireless LAN Indicator and Toshiba Hardware Setup.

I went with the Realtek drivers as the Toshiba website lists these as 32-bit. The NICs may be Atheros but the only drivers I could find for them were 64-bit (will they still work on a 32-bit OS?) - and these were on Toshiba Australia's support site.

Sorry I wasn't exactly sure where to post this thread

I looked up how to remove this warning that keeps coming up on this forum earlier and followed the procedure someone posted about renaming a file called TWARNMSG.EXE. i couldn't find that file, and as the problems and the make of laptop were slightly different, I thought I'd post my issue.

My laptop is a Toshiba Satellite Pro C660-16W and I have a message that keeps coming up every ~20 seconds headed "System Warning" and reads: "Warning: A problem with the cooling system has been detected. (Next Line) Please turn off the computer immediately, and return it for service."

I have had this warning coming up for months and tolerated it but it has gotten worse and annoyed me for the last time. I can hear the fan, and the computer is not over heating. No other issues arise like the computer slowing down, it just gets in the way of what I am doing, like typing right now. As I have typed, it's already popped up 6-7 times.

Please help soon, this is preventing me from gaming and even other things by now.

Thanks
 

Answer:Repetitive cooling system warning -- Toshiba Satellite Pro C660-16W

I'm going to have your thread moved to a more appropriate forum. Please stay subscribed.

Note: TWarnMsg twarnmsg.exe > Toshiba System Warning Function for Windows 98, Me, 2000 - provides notification dialog when the cooling fan stops ...

This is a valid program, but it is up to you whether or not you want it to run on startup.
---------------------------------------
There are some rogue programs that give fake alerts or 'critical system messages.' But this isn't one of them. It is specific to the brand of system you have. It might be that someone in the other forum has another idea- but my suggestion would be to take it to a show and have them open and clean out the box.

I don?t understand why you search drivers if you can find all you need on Toshiba support page -
http://www.toshiba.eu/innovation/download_drivers_bios.jsp

Product type > Notebook
Family > Satellite

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.

Hi all,

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

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

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

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

Thanks

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

Hi

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

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

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

As an example, I opened up TEMPRO and it specified a bios update which I duly installed.
Then I looked at SERVICE STATION which also seems to be for updates.
Is there some duplication in all this?

Can someone recommend which of these programs needs to be active?
Is there a brief explanation on what they do and whether there is any 'overhead' in running them?

Any guidance would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks.

Answer:Question about Toshiba support software for Satellite C850

I can imagine that you are a bit confused about that.
Both of them are nice applications especially Tempro. More about Tempro and Tempro service you can read on http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com/innovation/generic/TEMPO_RELEASE_V1

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

If you have some time check other postings about these applications. You will find a lot of them here on this forum.

I've downloaded the drivers that I'd need for clean install of Windows 7. I've then checked the Device Manager in Windows for current drivers, and I couldn't find the corresponding ones for download. Here's the list (as shown in Device Manager): SM Driver: SM bios service (Lenovo TVT SMBIOS, 6.1.1020.0); SM bus service (Lenovo TVT SMBUS, 6.5.1018.0) --////-- Sound, video and game controllers: Intel(R) Display Audio (Intel Corporation, 6.14.0.3090) --////-- System devices: 3rd Gen Core processor DRAM Controller - 0154 (Intel, 9.3.0.1011); Intel(R) 7 Series/C216 Chipset Family SMBus Host (Intel, 9.3.0.1011); IWD Bus Enumerator (Intel Corporation, 3.1.27.0); PCI Bus (Intel, 1.0.4.225). It's possible that these come with other packages, but I'm not sure which. Would be great if anyone knows anything about these drivers.

Answer:Couldn't find these drivers on Lenovo download support page

Hi, lenssd9
 
Lenovo makes it simple and easy to find and download drivers for your machine. You can go to this driver matrix and select your machine type. From here, you will be brought to a site where you can filter drivers by component (audio, video, chipset, etc.) and also filter by operating system. These drivers should be the most up-to-date for the components and your system.
 
Let me know if it helps,
 
Adam

Hi,

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.

Thanks

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

Hi

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.

I had to replace the hard disk drive in my notebook (Toshiba Satellite L50-C-,19P) windows 10. So when I try to put Windows back on my notebook it can't find the new hard drive. It says I need drivers for my hard disk drive. I can't find any on the Toshiba website and on other sites the ones don't work. Does anyone know where I could get the right drivers for my hard disk drive Toshiba MQ01ABD100?
If not, is it possible to buy another hard disk drive for which I can get some drivers? What kind of hdd could I use instead?

Hi, i bought this notebook with AMD A10-8700P CPU and i would know if is possible upgrade the ram, with 2 modules (2x4gb or 2x8gb), using Dual Channel. This information is very important, because all AMD APU, works better in Dual Channel than Single Channel. Thank you very much.

Hi

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

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

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

thanks,
Simon.

Answer:Looking for right Satellite A50 on Toshiba download page

Hi

I don?t know what the problem is. On the Toshiba website you can find the driver download area.
http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com/cgi-bin/ToshibaCSG/download_drivers_bios.jsp?service=EU

There you have to choose the right notebook. In your case it?s Satellite A50.
Then select the right OS and you will get all available drivers.

It?s simply.

Hello,

I bought this computer a month ago and I thought I might check the support page for this laptop for any new updates. I clicked the link in Toshiba Tempro (support for my PC or something like that) and when opened my browser there was an error saying that my product haven't been found. So I typed my serial code in and also tried the automatic recognition of the system, which both came up with the same error.
Even on that list "Find your laptop manually" i haven't seen not only my model but entire series (L650) wasn't there. Is this in any way related to the problem I am having recently ("Toshiba Service Station has stopped working")?

Please also explain me what to do in this case. I have tried manually uninstalling and re-installing the service station but the problem persists.

Thank you in advance.

Answer:Satellite L650-111 - Where is support page?

On the bottom of your notebook you will find Toshiba sticker with part number and if you want to search for your notebook model manually you will not find it searching for L650-111 but you must search for PSK1JE model.


Your notebook model is pretty new and I don?t think some important updates are available. If the system runs well don?t change anything.

Hello everybody.
I've got an old fashioned 480 CDT here, used, but still works fine. Runs Win98 fine so far.

The Problem: The machine urgently needs re-installation, but I've got no disks for the Toshiba specific tools (i.e. HWSETUP etc.) which came originally with the laptop. (But a Win98 CD I do have!) Seems that they've been lost along its long way.

I didn't find a possibility to download these tools from the Toshiba support pages. Maybe I'm too blind so somebody can give me a link where to download the Toshiba Tools?

Where can I find these tools? (I did find the Archive section, but there these tools aren't listed :-(

Thanks in advance.

Martin.

Answer:Where I could find Toshiba tools for my Satellite Pro 480 CDT

Hi,

I looked on the toshiba sites after your problem and you could go to http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com
in the menu Support & Download - Driver Download you could find a site to download drivers.

In the first drop down menu you have to choose ARCHIVE there is your laptop.

But there is only the Advanced Power Mode for W98 and BIOS update downloadable

it seems that the Satellite Pro 480 was only delievered with Win95.

It'll hope this will help you

Bye

Hello

I have Toshiba Satellite L755-161 and Windows 7 32bit installed (for quite some time) - when checking My Computer properties I can see that from 8GB of RAM only 2.74GB are usable.

Is this a normal value for usable memory?
Would this change depending on the additional software installed or would this only depend on hardware?
Would this value change (hopefully increase) if I reinstall my Windows 7?

Second thing:
Would it be possible/wise to upgrade to Windows 10?
Are all necessary drivers for Windows 10 released and where can they be safely downloaded?

Thanx in advance.

Hello.

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

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

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

While i am here the other two services are

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

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


Thankyou all.

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

Hello

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

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

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

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

I have bought a new Toshiba C70-A-126 yesterday,
I just wonder if I have to check all the updates available on the Toshiba web site or just all the updates downloads automatically when I sign on in the internet?

There are more than 39 new updates for this kind of laptop and I do not realy know what to choose and I am afraid of downloading a wrong update which leads to a problem.

Answer:Satellite C70-A-126 - do i have to check all updates from Toshiba page?

Hi

Your notebook is preinstalled and preconfigured so you don?t need to check anything if your notebook is running properly.
In case you will get some problems with graphic card driver or WLan, you could try to update such drivers. But until everything is OK I would not change anything.

Please I have some problems with my Satellite A50-109, I formated it and I cant found ethernal driver from toshiba site. The second problem I have with it again, it hang ever 5munite from the day i formated it.

Please I need help to solve it.thks

Answer:Satellite A50-109 - Can't find drivers on the Toshiba site

Hi Newton_1,

It?s nice that you have founded this forum and post here a little bit but some important informations are missing.

Which OS you have?
How did you reinstall Windows (Microsoft or Toshiba disk)?

Furthermore it would be interesting to know what you mean with Ethernal driver. Do you mean Ethernet driver?

Normally if you reinstall Windows by using Toshiba recovery disk you don?t need a special driver. Everything is preinstalled on your computer.
