Answer: Satellite C660-1JH - Webcam missing

Hi buddy,

And can you post more details please? This one sentence says nothing. Is the webcam picture black or what exactly?

Have you tried a webcam driver update? You can find it here:

Hello,

I was recently messing around my USB settings and I've accidentally uninstalled the webcam driver. I tried a driver from the Toshiba support website but it does not install. Within the last year, I upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10 (64-bit) so I think that might have something to do with it. I've also tried running the driver in compatibility mode.

If someone could suggest where I can go next, I would be very grateful!

Thanks,
Highwind4

If you go to this page https://forum.toshiba.eu/forumdispla...llite-C-Series there is a link at the top to "post new thread", this will allow you to post your own threads.

Clearly your webcam has not been detected, is there any chance that the wires from the webcam are damaged? was the laptop screen replaced?

Answer:Can I switch off webcam on my Satellite C660-1D7?

Hello

To be honest I don?t understand your question. Webcam is on if you use it with some application like Skype or preinstalled Webcam application. When the cam is on small blue light near the cam is ON.

When the application is closed cam will be off.

Please be so nice and explain your problem more detailed.

Bit of a weird problem with the webcam on my C660 laptop. It works fine on skype no problems at all and captures pictures fine, but whenever I try and record a video, it makes a beeping noise when I press 'record' then completely freezes, the light near my webcam goes off (so I'm assuming the webcam itself is off?) and refuses to respond. I've waiting for an hour, hoping it would catch up but it doesn't. Eventually it has to be closed using task manager as it will not respond.

Any idea what's going on with it or why it's doing that? I've not added or changed any of the stuff it originally came with, I'm not very tech savvy so no idea how to sort it

Thank you :)

>I have looked in the control panel and hardware device manager but there?s nothing there for a webcam.

Hi in some BIOS version there is an additional option to enable the webcam.
Please check the BIOS.

If the BIOS would not provide such option? well, in such case I would assume that your webcam module is faulty.
If the webcam module would be OK, then you should see something in the device manager even if the driver/software would not be installed.
You know...

Trying to get this built-in webcam working. Had the laptop for a few years but never used this function before. I have skype that doesn't seem to detect it. Can't see anything in Device Manager relating to webcam or image or anything, and in program files under Toshiba all it has is 'Wireless LAN Indicator', nothing about a cam or mic, its as if it doesnt exist. After searching around I found I might be needing some certain drivers, and so I downloaded something called TC30295700E (which I believe is what I needed), I installed that and no difference seems to be made. Webcam completely undetected by the laptop even though its built-in...been at this for a few hours now, am I missing something here?

Edit: sorry I should specify, I'm running Windows 7.

Edit 2: Should also add that 'Imaging Devices' is nowhere to be found on the Device Manager.

Hello!

I have just bought a Satelite C660, however it didn't come with a web cam or microphone, which I now require.

I note the slot above the screen which should house a web cam - is it relatively easy to buy something to fit in there and install it myself (I'm not very technical and don't have a good range of tools)?

Or, is there a reliable add-on camera / mic combination I should get?

The purpose of the camera is mostly Skype video conferencing. Might be of interest to do the Face Recognition thing too, but not absolutely necessary.

Thanks!

Answer:Satellite C660 - Webcam and microphone not working

Hello

And why does webcam and microphone not work? How do you notice this?
I mean is webcam picture just black or what happens exactly? Also what is with the microphone?

The microphone is a part of webcam so it?s enough if you reinstall the webcam driver. Newest vesion can be downloaded on official Toshiba website. If the driver is installed make sure the webcam is set as default input device. You can do this in Windows sound settings.

Is the webcam listed in device manager and does it work if you start the webcam software instead Skype?

I have an integrated webcam on my Toshiba c660d and while trying to use it it is not on focus.
The focus can't be set (it is disabled) either in the software settings or in the Skype video settings.
I have the most recent driver installed.

How can I focus it?

Answer:Satellite C660 - Integrated webcam not on focus

I?m not quite sure if I have understood your issue correctly.
The zoom option is available in webcam software but it?s disabled? Right?
In such case I recommend uninstalling the webcam software and removing this completely from the system. Then you should clean the OS using the Ccleaner.
After that reboot the unit several times and install the webcam software.

But I?ve got another Toshiba notebook series, and in my case the Zoom is not available as webcam feature.

The webcam works properly when using skype etc. But I have no acces to it from Windows, so I can't change any options or take a pic without using skype.

At the first day all was working great, and now after few months I can't even find an application (don't remember exactly the name, but pretty sure I tried everything and googled any other possibility). No, I'm not so dumb- I didn't deleted the shortcut from the descopt.
Windows can't find any application, nor there is any option in Windows control panel (just an adnotation in Device Manager saying that I have a Chicony USB2.0 built-in camera, it's working and there are drivers installed- installed originaly, I didn't changed anything.)
I tried to reinstall the drivers, no change at all (as it was easy to prefigure).

Then I googled that some C series Toshiba laptops have a Camera Assistant Software, which I didn't remembered to install on the first day (yep, I had bought "blank" laptop and installed Windows and drivers manualy). I thought it can be what I'm looking for, maybe I just deleted it accidentaly.
Didn't work too, when I try to run it it says that the camera is off (it's active) or not working properly (oh, rly?).
Maybe that is because the version of software is not good for my model (which can't get a technical support, there is no model like mine to choose from the list. Funny, isn't it?).

Thanks for any help.

Answer:Webcam software usage on Satellite C660- 1M2

What you need is ?Web camera application? and it can be downloaded from Toshiba download page.

Please visit http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com/innovation/download_drivers_bios.jsp and choose your notebook model and OS. Your notebook is Satellite C660 with part number PSCJ1E.

You will find ?Webcam driver? there. Install it and try to use preinstalled software. Before you start it be sure Skype is off.

Answer:Satellite C660-1NW - Webcam is not working with facebook chat

Hi,
if Facebook doesn't recognize your webcam right away when you want to share a video, click the Look for Cameras Again button.

Your Adobe Flash Player settings will pop up.
From the tab, make sure you select the correct type of camera you are using with your computer.

From the tab, you may also need to "allow" Facebook to access your camera and microphone.

If adjusting your settings does not work, try uninstalling Adobe Flash Player from your computer and download the most updated version of Flash-Player.

I then endeavoured to download the latest driver which I have on my pc. I run the file but nothing happen afterward i.e. no setup wizard nothing.
Am I doing something wrong, do I have to delete the existing application?

What is wrong here?

Answer:Webcam and internal mic has stopped working on Satellite C660-1D7

Hi

The webcam should be listed under the point: Imaging Devices
There you should see USB Video device.
Can you see this?

If can see this, then uninstall the driver in device manager.
Then go to control panel -> software and uninstall the webcam software.
Then clean the OS and registry using the CCleaner.
After that reboot the notebook and download the latest webcam software from Toshiba driver page.
Install the webcam software and reboot the notebook.

After the notebook has booted up, start the webcam software and check if the webcam can be used.

I have a Satellite C660 series laptop. the web cam was working fine with the old driver installed..
I work away quite a bit and use Skype to speak to my wife while stuck in a hotel room...

I logged in as normal but skype couldn't find the camera, i opened the camera manually using the side browser bar on the desktop and got an error message "Device is locked by other application" I shut all other programs down which may be using it but still got the same message.

Still couldnt get it working so looked in the task manager and process tree to see if anything was running (didnt really know what i was looking for in the processes.)

I then updated and reinstalled the driver - this is the latest version of the driver and changed the appearance of the camera home screen - still got same error message.

Tried numerous times to install driver but nothing... yet the face recognition screen comes on and uses the webcam.... so i know the camera works but it wont open manually or with skype

Please help

Answer:Satellite C660: webcam message - Device is locked by other application

Hi

I think you cannot use the cam in connection with the skype because the webcam is blocked by another software? I assume its face recognition.

I recommend doing this:
Uninstall webcam software
Uninstall face recognition
Reboot the unit
Install webcam software
Install face recognition
?and then test it with skype.

Hi,

I was just wondering if the web camera on the Satellite C660/C660D is colour or black and white?
If its colour, how do I change it to colour?

Thanks.

Answer:Satellite C660/C660D - Webcam colour or black and white?

Hi

Of course it?s color cam.
It?s a common webcam? Do you have just black/white webcam picture?
In your case I recommend checking the webcam software options.
Start the Camera Assistant software and in the Properties you could find the option called ?Backlight Compensation?. Check this option.
Furthermore in the ?Image? tab you will find some controls like: brightness, gamma, hue, saturation and sharpness. Play around with these settings.

I went on Skype to talk and I found that it could not detect a webcam, and the other person couldn't hear my voice. I checked the device manager and no imagery or recording device was found.
The camera and the microphone are both integrated. They have worked before.

There is another problem which may be linked. When I first got the laptop, when I pressed the fn key, a bar at the top of the screen would pop up which showed me what all the different f keys did. This no longer appears.

Also, when I first got the laptop, if I were to plug in headphones or an external microphone into the line-out sockets, a message would pop up. This no longer happens, and the laptop isn't receiving any input from a headset I plug into it.

I have tried reinstalling the webcam drivers but to no avail. According to the device manager it doesn't exist. If this were the only problem then I may put it down to damage, but the other problems give me a feeling it has something to do with some kind of software I may have accidentally disabled or deleted, that has control over the webcam/mic and the line-out, which also produced user-interface elements such as that of pressing the fn key.

I cannot pinpoint a time when this stopped working as I have only just noticed the webcam and the microphone not working as I have not used them in a while. I have noticed, however, how pressing the 'fn' key no longer brings up the respective information on the screen.

I bought recovery system disc (Disc R15379SO) on Toshiba support to refresh my C660 1R3 Satellite. Unfortunately my computer continue to block with this message : BOOTMGR missing.

It's the first time I try to reinstall factory settings on this computer from 2011 and it's impossible.

If you have any advice about this message and the real meaning I thank you.

Answer:Re: Satellite C660-1R3 - BOOTMGR missing

Hi

In my opinion this message appears because the notebook did not boot from optical disk drive but tried to boot from the HDD.
Are you sure you booted from CD/DVD drive?

In case you are 100% sure that the notebook booted from the inserted Recovery disk, then in my opinion the new ordered disk is faulty. You should get in contact with the supplier and replace the disk

Hi folks,

I have Satellite C660,
at first i had a virus, and tried to reinstall windows, but no good.
When it came up to the point of saying there was not enough space on the disk to install windows,
I realised i had forgot about the partition bit.

Now when i try to boot up again, its a black screen which says..BOOTMGR..manager..is missing.
So when i try to boot up again, i get to the same point about not enough space on the disk
so im going round in circles, and getting no where,

I'm thinking about getting a new hard drive, but does anyone know how to fix this before i do have to buy a new drive.. cheers

Answer:Missing BOOTMGR on Satellite C660

Missing boot manager is a common error message which appears if the notebook cannot find and boot the system.
So you have to find the reason why the system cannot be found.
I think its HDD problem. Probably the HDD or system partition is faulty.

In my opinion you should access the BIOS and should check if the HDD is listed on the first BIOS page.
In case it does not appear in the first BIOS page, the HDD isn?t recognized and therefore I think it should be replaced before trying to install the system again.

I have a strange problem with a Satellite C660-18C, and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions.

This is a friend's laptop that crashed a little while ago. He appears to have tried to reinstall an operating system, although not using the recovery media, which he never made when the notebook was new. He has not managed to do this, so asked me to take a look.

The hard disk is still the original Toshiba disk that shipped with the laptop, although it has been removed and replaced. This was done to do some basic testing on the hard disk, which showed no errors.

If you boot the laptop from a USB stick with a Windows 7 Pro installation image, you get as far as choosing a partition to install Windows on to. It shows "Disk 0 Unallocated Space 232.9GB"

However, it reports "Windows cannot be installed to this disk. This computer's hardware may not support booting to this disk. Ensure the disk's controller is enabled in the computer's BIOS menu."

I have looked in the Bios and I can see no trace of the hard disk. For instance, if you look under "Boot", this list only shows, CD/DVD, FDD, LAN and USB.

It seems to make no difference whether the SATA mode is set to "AHCI" or "Compatibility"

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks

Answer:Satellite C660-18C HDD missing from BIOS

Usually good working HDD should be listed in BIOS (first BIOS page).
There you should see the HDD name and the size.

If first BIOS page does not provide any details about the HDD, then the HDD was not recognized by BIOS and in most cases this means that the HDD is faulty.

If you are 100% sure that this HDD isn?t faulty (for example it works in connection with another notebook), then an HDD controller malfunction could cause the problem?

But I guess it?s an HDD issue?

Hi folks,


I'm hoping someone may be able to help...

I've got a Satellite C660-10T (p/n: PSC0LE-00j00JEN)..

I've just reinstalled Windows 7 (Ultimate, x64 from my own DVD). I've got all the shipped apps and drivers going apart from the Fn+F8 Wifi on/switching.

The flash cards app shows along the top of the display when I press Fn, but there's no F8/Wifi panel and pressing Fn+F8 does nothing.

The Wifi driver is installed and the wifi's currently on and working, but cannot be turned off.

I've got these installed:
Value Added Pack-20101130111348
Flash Cards Support Utility-20110519151724

Both of these two wifi drivers lead to the same behavior:
WiFi RTL8192ce_WindowsDriver 1005.31.1222.2011.F0066.P0830 ISS 1.00.0180.L
Win8 20121203105641
(it's the Realtek RTL811CE, according to device manager)

I have a Norton Ghost image of the same flavour of windows within which the Fn+F8 combination works fine, so I think I can be sure all relevant hardware's good (thats the slow old install I'm trying to replace).

I've tried every varient of every driver or app I can find, but the results are either WiFi looks to be installed OK but can't be turned on at all or looks and connects OK but can't be turned on/off.

Does anyone know the trick to getting the Fn+F8 Wifi /off feature both showing and working with a fresh windows installation please?

Hi,

I bought a Toshiba Satellite C660-10D for my birthday last August and was a bit disappointed to find that it didn't include the Windows 7 disk - instead I found a "Recovery" partition to be used if there was a problem. Another disappointment was finding that the 500Gb hard drive I thought I was getting was actually about 360Gb - the remainder apparently partitioned off for the "Recovery".

After a few months use I decided to check out the recovery option and found it was inaccessible (Press F8 at boot up just didn't work). Scouting around the 'net found another option (I think that was something like ESC 0 at boot up) but that didn't work either.

I should have taken the darn thing back to the shop at that point but it was a 10 mile round trip and an injury kept me from driving. Anyhow, I decided to make my own back-up with Acronis (which has been a life-saver on my desktop PC).

The main installation took 3 DvDs and the "Recovery" partition went on another DvD. With hindsight, I should have backed up to a spare USB harddrive - it would have been quicker.

Anyway, Sod's Law, a few months later and I had to do a re-install from the Acronis back-up and, whilst everything seemed to install OK, I now just get the dreaded BOOTMGR IS MISSING message. Scanning the hard drive shows that the Windows installation is there but it just will not Boot.

Scouting around the 'net only came up with suggestions that involved using the installation... Read more

Answer:Satellite C660-10D - Bootmgr is missing

> I bought a Toshiba Satellite C660-10D for my birthday last August and was a bit disappointed to find that it didn't include the Windows 7 disk - instead I found a "Recovery" partition to be used if there was a problem

The user manual provides an information that you can create own Recovery Disk using the preinstalled software called Toshiba Recover Media Creator. So apart from the HDD recovery, then Recovery disk could be used too.

So its always recommended to create an the Toshiba recover disk in case something wrong would happen to the HDD recovery or the HDD itself?

The Bootmgr is missing could be solved by new installation.
So wither you would use an Win 7 Microsoft disk and would install the drivers which could be downloaded from the Toshiba European driver page or you will order the recover disk here:

From my knowledge it?s not expensive: about 30?

Hey everyone,

I use my Satellite C660 Notebook for some music production and I try to get my extern Presonus Audio Interface working. All is well so far except some occasional cracking noises in the AudioInterface. After fixing some things in Windows 7 that were recommended by tech support from Presonus these noises were still there.
So Tech support then gave me the following advice:

+"There are some power options that can be tweaked in your BIOS that may be causing the noise you are experiencing.+

+CPU Settings Section - Intel SpeedStep set to normal.+
+CPU Settings Section - Turbo Mode set to normal not turbo mode.+
+CPU Settings Section (if applicable) - Processor Operation Mode will have 3 settings, Normal, Fast, Extreme (??). Set it to 'Normal'+

+Power Settings: - C1E Support+
+Power Settings: - C3E Support (if it's there)+

+Save BIOS and restart.+

+Typically overclocking CPU's like the iSeries can cause the CPU power to fluctuate causing issues with noise on your audio devices, it is a new find and we are writing a FAQ that will be available on our knowledge base that will have a detailed description on the reasons why this occurs on over clocking CPU's.+

+Make sure any overclocking settings have been set to normal."+

*So for the first Time I entered BIOS only to find that none of these settings can be made on this Toshiba Satellite c660.*

Or can they somehow still be made? Are there tools, programs,...?

I hope someone can hel... Read more

Answer:Missing BIOS Settings Satellite C660

Hi

If the settings are not available in BIOS, you will not be able to change it or to appear it within the BIOS.

Mostly the Phoenix BIOS would be used by different manufacturers but the BIOS is always modified by manufacturers and configured for each notebook series.
Therefore particular settings are not always available in each BIOS.

I read in the presonus forum about crackling sound using dual core CPUs.
One guy could solve this using another USB port.

So maybe you should test all available USB ports.

Another option could be the usage of external USB hub connected to external power source?now quite sure if this would help to get rid of such noises but its worth a test.

Last but not least you could test this with connected and disconnected AC adapter

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

Answer:Satellite C660 LAN missing while booting the Win7

Hi

Do you mean that your LAN card is not visible in device manager or what?

Usually if no network cable is plugged to the LAN jack, the system switches off the LAN network adapter to extend the battery run time.

Does anyone know how I can get a replacement foot for my laptop (at a reasonable price).

I'm surprised they are not easy to source via the Toshiba website, google or ebay. Possibly I've missed something obvious .

Answer:Satellite C660-1UJ - Rubber Foot missing

It is not easy to find and order such parts. Toshiba doesn't sell any parts directly so you cannot find it via Toshiba pages. All you can do is to contact nearest Toshiba service provider and ask for help.

Check also eBay. There you can find many different parts for different notebook models. Maybe you will be lucky about that.

Bought a Satellite C660-22v on ebay which seems to work fine except none of the Tosh utilities are present.

I was going to reload the OS and downloaded the manual which say I need to set the BIOS to default. The previous owner has set the password on it and has told me what it is. What I want to know is, can I do the system restore without resetting the BIOS or how do I get the Tosh utilities?

Answer:Satellite C660 - missing utilities, BIOS not in default

To be honest I don?t understand what do you mean with these missing utilities. Fact is that this notebook was delivered with original preinstalled Win7 home premium. If you have recovery disc reinstall OS and start to use notebook with ?factory settings? that includes all Toshiba tools and utilities. If you want to install some of them additionally you can download them from http://www.toshiba.eu/innovation/download_drivers_bios.jsp

Generally speaking you can do system restore without changing BIOS settings but now when you want to use notebook from other person I think best thing is to remove BIOS password, set BIOS to default settings, reinstall OS and start to use notebook with original ?factory settings?. Later you can configure notebook and change the settings.

Hello,

I want to change the Power Saver Settings in the Advanced Power Settings of the Power Management.
I've seen that people have the option "TOSHIBA Power Saver Settings" but I don't.
After searching a bit more, I found out that is the Power Saver Utility that needs to be installed.

I think I have uninstalled it, but there still is a folder under "Program Files(x86)\Toshiba" called Power Saver with all kinds of files.

Answer:Satellite C660 - BOOTMGR is missing press Ctrl+ALt+Del

Hi dude,

First of all i’ve got a good message for you: this isn’t very serious issue and could be solved easy.
I assume you cannot start Advanced boot menu pressing F8. Correct?
If this is not possible you need an bootable Live CD for example Windows PE or BartPE
http://www.nu2.nu/pebuilder/

Booting the notebook using such Live CD will allow you to use the command prompt where you could execute some commands in order to rebuild the Master Boot Record.
Using the command prompt (shows like a black DOS box) you should type this command:
Bootrec /RebuildBcd, and then press ENTER.

Usually this should rebuild the master boot record on the HDD and the notebook should boot again from the internal C partition.

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 have had a similar error message and could solve this by disabling the webcam software from startup.

This prevents it from automatic loading.
I don?t use MSN but Skype and the Chicony webcam software is always disabled (not executed) if Skype is running.

Maybe you should try this too.

Furthermore you could try this:
Go to device manager, mark the webcam (imaging devices ? USB video device) and deleted it from the device list.
Then reboot the notebook and wait until the webcam has been recognized again.

Then test it.

You should firstly go to device manager and should uninstall the driver.

Then reboot the notebook several times and install the webcam software again.

Hiya,

firstly I am not sure if this is a warranty issue, but I always seem to be geting in post the closure of the offices at the moment.

The new laptop seems to occasionally play up and suggest the USB device not recognised.
On top of this the webcamera is not listed in the hardware settings.

I have tried re-installing the webcam drivers, but although they install ok the computer cannot actually find the webcam, i.e. its not listed in system devices, and forcing Vista to look for the camera does not result in any luck. (the microphone adjacent to the webcam works fine).
Every time I start the computer it now tells me I need to restart the webcam or the computer.

I am running Vista 32 bit, the 250D being a 1.9Athlon core duo with 2GB ram and definetly comes packaged with a webcam (I do seem to recall the little blue light coming on early during setup but never again since).

Is it worth doing a hard re-install, although Windows is normally pretty good at picking up new hardware surely??
I have had a look at the other webcam issues but the drivers are no good as I cannot actually make the webcam do anything.
I have been onto the Warranty page but trying to enter the Serial no. it says it doesn't exist.

Any ideas?

Thanks, Jason

Answer:Satellite L350D - Webcam doesn't work - webcam must be restarted

* Download the updated Chicony Webcam driver from the Toshiba website drivers section. If you cannot find an updated driver, try a newer driver from another Toshiba Model.
* Install Vista Service Pack 1, or Vista Hotfix KB934374: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/934374 (KB934374 is included in SP1)
* Update your Messenger software (MSN/Yahoo Messenger, etc..)
* If you have another program that can use the webcam (Skype for example), make sure they are completely closed, and not sitting in the System Tray.
* Try closing the Camera Assistant Bar on the left of the Desktop.
* To stop the Camera Assistant software from running on startup, run Regedit and delete "Camera Assistant Software" from HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run \

Question: Satellite C660

My brother has a Satellite C660-1H6 laptop. Unfortunately his HDD went bad.
I installed a new HDD and reinstalled Windows 7 Home Premium, which was originally installed on the laptop.
Setup accepted his product key and installation went relatively smooth, only problem is that after installing the drivers, I cannot connect to wireless network.
Laptop uses an Atheros wireless card, model AR9285.
Things I tried, following forum suggestions:
-Allocate a MAC address instead of "Not present" to the wireless adapter.
-Changing various drivers, including the one from Toshiba page and some from the Atheros page.
-I installed ALL the drivers, I don't have any unknown device or exclamation mark in device manager
-Installed ConfigFree, Flash cards support utility, Value Added Package, Wireless LAN indicator (some users select that some of these are needed)
-I ran Windows troubleshooter
-I did a factory default reset in BIOS
-Although I did not change the antennas before, I also tested the wireless with the 2 antenna connectors replaced the other way on the wireless card.

Fn+F8 works, I can enable/disable the wireless. I can see a list of available networks, including mine. When is try to connect, it asks for password. My router is using WPA2-PSK authentication and AES encryption. I type the password, it tries to connect, but I get the following error message:
"Windows was unable to connect to XXX" (I replaced the SSID of my network with XXX)
After that... Read more

Have a look at the other C660 models, if they have an i5 then your model should be able to take the same CPU.

Hello all,

Yesterday all of a sudden, the laptop screen went blank. Upon turning it on several times, the screen still doesn't turn on. By connecting the monitor to a external monitor via VGA (my TV), the TV does show up the screen, but has several flickering horizontal lines showing, thus obscuring part of the screen (http://i.imgur.com/83RO8xg.jpg - ignore the windows behind, I was testing the sound - and it works).

I have tried several solutions on the web (like removing the battery and AC cable and pressing the power button, and interchanging the RAM card in the slots), and not surprisingly, nothing worked as I think my problem is not similar. Windows 10 just boots to a blue screen with a sad face and a QR code (I don't even know...), while Linux Mint does boot and gives a message of "running without hardware acceleration". I couldn't get any diagnosis on Linux to check if it's a problem on the graphic card or the motherboard, so I am turning to these forums to check if anyone had any similar problem.

Thank you.

Hi!

My model is Satellite C660-1LD .
I want to add 4 GB RAM to my laptop.

There is now 4GB RAM DDR3 *(1066MHZ)* on my laptop.
Can I add, or is it better to add 4GB RAM DDR3 to the second slot with *(1333MHZ)*?

And what frequency my computer will work? (1066mhz or 1333mhz).
What better RAM to add( brand, frequency) you think?

Also the RAM I found is Unbuffered, what it means?

Thank you!

Answer:Satellite C660-1LD - I want to add 4 GB RAM

> Can I add, or is it better to add 4GB RAM DDR3 to the second slot with *(1333MHZ)*?
This depends on your chipset.
If your chipset supports 1333Mhz then the RAM will work with full performance, otherwise it would be clocked down to 1066Mhz.

Answer:Key lag on Satellite C660-1F1

Hi Helenuk1963

A BIOS update is something that makes the main brain of the laptop smarter but this does not 100% mean it will fix it the normal fix is to run a recovery of the unit via the HDD by pressing F8 non stop on startup and selecting repair your computer then login and select Toshiba HDD recovery but before you do this make sure you have backed up all your data and created recovery disks via the toshiba recovery media creator in the start menu.

if you do want to run a BIOS update best thing to do is call Toshiba direct who can walk you though it and at least if something goes wrong it will be covered.

First of all you should connect both devices (TV and notebook) using an proper cable which is supported by TV and notebook.
Then you have to power up the TV and notebook and have to enable the HDMI channel on TV.
Now use the key combination FN +F5 to switch the video output to TV.

Does this work?

It is a bit complicated due to missing HDMI port. According notebook specification your notebook has RGB port only and it can be used if you want to connect external display. This port sends video signal only.

You can use this port to send picture to the TV too. I don?t know which TV do you have and which ports has your TV but for sound you need separate audio cable.

I have tried uninstalling the USB controllers, re-booting and allowing the automatic hardwarediscovery to run and install them again. This hasn't resolved the problem unfortunately.

I'm running windows 7 incidently.

Any one else had a similar issue or has any ideas??

Thanks,

Answer:Re: Satellite C660 - One USB is not working

If only one USB port does not work and if other is OK then I think that this is a USB port malfunction and not related to any software.

So in such case I think you should visit the Toshiba ASP for a motherboard check.
The USB ports are part of motherboard and possibly you need new mobo.

If you cannot find drivers on Toshiba support page - http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com/innovation/download_drivers_bios.jsp - then your notebook is not supported for WXP and you will, probably, not be able to find them.

Answer:Satellite C660-2DZ no drivers

Hi

The drivers for Satellite C660 PSC1NE can be found on the Toshiba European driver page. http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com

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

Hi!

I have a Toshiba C660-1DN laptop, i've bought it in October. My problem is, that the cooling fan starts in the first 2-3 minutes, and it keeps running, until i shut down the computer.

It is loud, and very annoying.
I have installed all of the drivers, updated the bios to 1.8, changed the cooling method in Windows, changed the CPU frequency in bios to "Always low", but neither helped.

It is interesting that, it has the same noise, if i play an FPS games for hours, and if i write text in Word, or browse the internet... I've bought a coolpad, but it isn't helped too.

The air - which flows out on the left side - is quite cool, but comes out with a large speed. I've used some other laptops, (Acer, Dell, HP) but they flows out warm or even hot air.

_Temperature details (AIDA64)_: (The machine is on a glass table, balanced energy saving mode)
1. CPU / 1. core : 61?C
1. CPU / 2. core : 58?C
PCH : 66?C
IMC: 65?C
GMCH: 27?C
GPU diode: 53?C
TOSHIBA MK2565GSXV : 33 ?C

_Cooling fans:_
CPU : 3093 RPM (103%) ???
GPU : 30%

My question is that, is it normal??
Thanks for the replies! :)

Answer:Satellite C660 noisy fan

> I have installed all of the drivers, updated the bios to 1.8,

It seems that there is a new BIOS version v1.9 for Satellite C660 PSC1JE available on the Toshiba European driver page. You can try to update the BIOS.

Additionally try this settings Power Plane settings:

_1st Proposal:_
Cooling Method: Maxim Performance
Intel Turbo boost Technology: Enable
CPU Frequency mode: Always low

_2nd Proposal:_
Cooling Method: Battery Optimized
Intel Turbo boost Technology: Disable
CPU Frequency mode: Always high

Here you can find the single options:

<Setting Method>
Changes in Operating System:
Control Panel --> Power Options --> Change plan settings --> Change advanced power settings --> TOSHIBA Power Saver Settings --> Cooling Method

Changes in Bios (Power Management):
Intel Turbo boost Technology

Changes in Operating System:

Hello, I have a problem.

I own laptop Toshiba Satellite C660, i bought it two and a half years ago, but i didn't extend my warranty.

Unfortunately, six months after my warranty expires, my HDD failed. One day it started doing weird sounds and computer was not able to start. I find out that my HDD is broken and I need new one.

So I ordered a new one, put it into my laptop, installed Windows 7 on it (I am a student and my university give us Windows free). But there is this problem:

My laptop's resolution can be changed only to two possible options: 800x600 and 1024x768. I don't remember what resolution I had before, but I am 100% sure that it was better and, what is more important, it was 16:9, not 4:3.

Another problem is that my function key (Fn) do not respond. So I am not able to turn my WiFi or Bluetooth on, or make my laptop hibernate.

Can you help me? What should I do?

Thank you very much.

Answer:Satellite C660-28V - USB hub problem

Hi

I?ve checked specification for your notebook and as I can see your notebook was originally offered with Win7 64bit so I don't understand why you don't use this original version.
You could install original recovery image and just optimize it to your needs.

Ok you maybe want to have Ultimate version and your own OS installation should not be problem because all necessary drivers, tools and utilities you can download from Toshiba drivers download page - http://www.toshiba.eu/innovation/download_drivers_bios.jsp

Of course we don't know what have you installed and how it looks like when you open device manager. Are all hardware components installed and listed properly?

Anyway, what I can say is that all Win7 64bit drivers, tools and utilities are available and you should install all of them.
The right installation order is as follow:
Windows 7 64bit
TOSHIBA Assist
Intel Chipset SW Installation Utility
Intel Management Engine Interface
Intel Display Driver
Intel Rapid Storage Technology Driver
Realtek Audio Driver
TOSHIBA Supervisor Password Utility
