Answer: Satellite C660-1J2 - Changing the display colour

Hi milleras,

Sorry but that?s just confusing? Do you really mean the screen colour and not the screen brightness? Can you post a screenshot of this message?
What operating system you have?

The screen brightness you can change with FN+F6 and FN+F7 key combination but it has nothing to do with display colour.

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.

Gidday all. This is my first visit to this forum, so please bear with me.
My problem is like this:
Firstly, this is what I did.
* I setup my desktop background picture and colour scheme by clicking on the desktop and selecting properties;
* I got into the area that allows one to choose the colours for the desktop, windows background etc (all those elementary things that were easy in the anceint versions of windows);
* I chose a custom colour version of "cyan" for my background and use black for the letters. I prefer this combination as it's easier on the eyes than a white background with black letters.
Secondly, I saved everything then selected apply.
So far so good. Works well for awhile. Then in the middle of working on something (even Word) I get the "PLEASE WAIT" window and everything defaults back to the original windows colour scheme. This problem occurs regardless of what application I use.
Has anyone got any suggestions, please? I contacted the tech help guys that set up my machine originally but they couldn't help.
Cheers

Answer:Changing appearance of display colour scheme

Hello and welcome to TSF.

A few suggestions to try out while others ponder the possible causes.

1. After making the changes go and right click on the desktop and under arrange icons , choose lock the desktop.

2. Control panel / display / settings/ troubleshooting
lower the hardware accelleration.

3. Right click my computer choose properties (or control panel => system) => advanced => performance => settings
Click adjust for best appearance.

Restart after you have made these changes so that they get hard recorded to the registry hive before anything else tries to use the old settings.

Hello.

>...Satellite Pro C660-16N - Windows 7 64bit Home Premium preinstalled...

Does anyone know what the best route is to change Win7 64bit to Win7 32bit. Does this model have a 32bit install option on HDD recovery?

Or will it have to be a clean install from a Win7 32bit DVD.

Many thanks.

Answer:Changing Win7 64bit to 32 bit on Satellite Pro C660-16N

I presume this notebook is offered with 64bit version only (specification) and there is only one way to install 32 bit OS version ? you must install it using original Microsoft Win7 32 bit installation disc.
Please note: for OS activation you cannot use product key from the sticker. You must buy new licence for your own installation.

By the way: check also if this notebook model is supported for 32 bit version. You can do this on Toshiba support and download page under http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com

If you have more questions you are welcome.

This is not possible.

The shared memory is assigned automatically and this is controlled by graphic card driver.
But the shared memory is only in use if the applications (i.e game) would require more graphic RAM.

I have a Satellite C660 laptop that is only a couple of months old and not used too much. I turned it on the other day, but the screen is completely blank. The laptop is making 'bleeping' sounds. One, quite high longish bleep, followed by the same pitch but two bleeps in quick succession. This cylce occurs every 30 seconds or so. It doesn't matter whether it is plugged in or running on the battery, the results are the same. I have also noticed that the machine is not getting that warm. When I had the laptop plugged in earlier I had to leave it for a while to answer the phone. Since it has not been working the laptop has one red light and one green light - none flashing. When I returned after about 10 minutes, both lights had turned to green and the bleeping was the same. I have went through the users manual and have tried the suggestions re: screen contrast, brightness and so on, but nothing is happening. I'm pretty p----d off as the laptop is only a few weeks old as I mentioned earlier.. Any help would be appreciated. PS - it is still under warranty.

Answer:Satellite C660 - No Display

Hello

If your notebook isn?t able to start and makes only some beeping sounds it means that a hardware malfunction was detected. It?s not a software problem so you must contact an authorized service provider and let the guys check your unit for errors.

It?s good that the notebook is still under warranty because such hardware repairs are for free and covered by warranty. So get in contact with your local authorized service provider and ask for help. I?m sure the problem can be clarified with the guys :)

Answer:Need WXP display driver for Satellite C660-2TL

Hello

I?ve checked notebook specification and your notebook has NVIDIA N12M-GE-S 1GB (DDR3) graphic card. Several Toshiba notebook models have this card but none of them is supported for WXP.

Toshiba doesn?t support WXP and display driver for this nvidia card is not available. I?m afraid you must try to find driver googling around.

I've been trying to find a Sattelite Pro C660-2JD display cable for several months now with absolutely no luck at all... I've even tried display cables from within the C660 series and none of them seem to fit, it seems to be it's own cable.

Does anyone know where I can find the display cable for this laptop model? Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Answer:Need display cable for my Satellite Pro C660-2JD

it is pretty problematic to find such parts. When I need something I search on the eBay. With a little bit luck you can find many parts for different notebook models.

Hey everyone.

I recently changed my HDD and did a fresh reinstall, as the previous one was damaged. What happens now is that every time I plug or unplug the power cable the display goes black for a second. There are no real negative consequences from this, I would just prefer if there was an option to make this not happen.

So, give out a shout anyone if you know how to deal with this.

Answer:Satellite C660-1J2 - Display goes black for a second

Hello

> I recently changed my HDD and did a fresh reinstall
Have you installed Windows from Toshiba recovery disk or normal Microsoft Windows disk?

For me it sounds like that you have forgotten to install the display driver. Also check the device manager for yellow exclamation marks or unknown devices.
Make sure that correct display driver is installed. You can download the newest version on official Toshiba website:

Answer:Updating Display Driver on Satellite C660-23M

Hi

You want to update the Intel graphic card driver?

The internal GPU is part of the Intel Core i3-370M CPU and its Intel HD graphic.

I?m wondering why the update is so important for you? I think you will not get any new features nor you will notice any performance boost.

However, you could try to start the graphic installation via device manager.
This procedure should work especially if you would use the ?Advanced? installation which allows you to point to the driver folder containing the driver update files

22-09-2012(Sat- 4:30 PM): I took the laptop to the store and asked for a replacement. The helpdesk team simply changed the settings and said it was fixed it and gave me the pack.
22-09-2012(Sat- 7:00 PM): When i tried logging in again to my laptop i found the display cracked.

When i searched in website i found many facing the same issue.
But atleast after some months are years.
But a brand new laptop without even using for a single day becoming unusable is not fair.

Now i am being asked to pay more than half of the actual price of the laptop to get it fixed.
I strongly feel that i have been given a defective piece of laptop and now being asked to pay for it.

Either i want a replacement for the one i bought or else i want to return my laptop and get back my money.

Kindly assist.

Thanks & Regards,
Dhivya.

Answer:Satellite C660 - Crack in display without any reason

Hi

It?s really strange that an display breaks without any reason.
For me it?s not understandable how this can happen.
However, I would strongly recommend asking an Toshiba authorized service provider in your country for assistance.

>I try to install the OS and run into the @ & " Key mismatch fault. This is a clear defect in the system in the first place.

Hello,

I am trying to view my laptop on an external device but am not sure if my laptop supports what I am trying to do. If anyone knows if I can do this or not, or whether there is a work around, I would greatly appreciate it.
I have a standard digital tv which I am attempting to use as an external display. I am using the VGA output port on my C660-2f7.

I have a VGA-to-AV/S-Video converter (i.e. the vga converts to both S-video and yellow, red and black av cables) and have connected all of the ports to the tv via S-Video-to-S-Video cable and AV-to-AV cables. Yet the computer does not seem to dectect anything. I have tried 'Connect to a projector' and 'Connect to an external device' on control panel, plus the equivielent on the hot keys, both 'duplicate' and 'extend'. On 'Change the appearance of your displays' I have set display to to VGA. On Intel's 'Graphic Properties'>general settings>display, I only have the options 'monitor' and 'built-in display'.

And under 'Graphic Properties'>monitor/tv settings' it says 'monitor/tv settings are not supported.' Does this mean I can not do what I am trying to do? and that my laptop only supports computer monitors and external display? If so, is there any workaround I can use with this or not?

Thanks in advance.

Answer:Satellite C660-2F7 - external display on TV via VGA output

Has your TV SCART port?
In the past I?ve tested few combinations using s-video port on my old notebook.

What you can try is to obtain VGA to SCART cable and check if this will help.

Unfortunately it is a bit complicated.

hi

i have 3 Satellite C660 laptops all doing the same things,
The power is turning on and i get the green lights but no display on the screen. it only happens every so often.

Does anyone know what i could be is the mother board going or is it over heating?

Thank you

Answer:Satellite C660 - green lights but no display

I cannot say for sure what part might be affected but fact is that if Toshiba splash screen does not appear at the beginning of the booting procedure. This means that the power on self test isn?t started and cannot be passed properly. This might be related to motherboard problem or an part connected to the motherboard; ie. RAM modules.

If possible, I would recommend checking the single RAM modules.

High internal temperature could affect the notebook functionality too. But you can avoid such problems cleaning the cooling fans as well as the cooling grilles from time to time.

Hello all you wonderful people.

I'm writing this post to inquire as to why the display driver for this model hasn't been updated since 2010?
I have been playing a favourite game of mine (Civilization V) on this model. They updated the game with a patch in November and the computer can no longer display the graphics properly because of the old drivers.

I've done my research on the gaming forums to try and fix this and after looking at my dxdiag its become clear that the drivers are out of date. I've been on the Intel website and they have updated drivers for the card (Intel(R) HD graphics), I've downloaded these drivers however the laptop will not install them unless they are Toshiba verified? My questions are..

Why does Toshiba stop me from installing these drivers from Intel's website?

In the Video options of CS, there were 3 choices for renderers, (Software,OpenGL ,and D3D).

Before the reformat, i was using the OpenGL option. But after that, it seems like the OpenGL is missing.

After only 2 months I got an HDD alert saying it would fail soon. So under warranty 2 weeks ago Toshiba arranged for an authorized dealer to collect and replace the HDD which they did. Ever since then I cannot use my graphics software. Now, I remember when I first got my laptop I had the same problem and it was to do with my graphics/video card and OpenGL. Toshiba site and my own laptop kept saying that all drivers were up to date. But when I went on Intel site I found that Intel HD Graphics was not up to date. As soon as I updated I was able to use all my graphics programs.

The drivers installed without any problems at all. This time, although I gave a recovery disk to the repair dealer, when my graphics software was not working.

Answer:Satellite C660-1D7 - Installing latest Intel display driver

Hi John,

The problem is that only Toshiba drivers are pretested on your system. Installing other drivers happens on your own risk because they are not tested by Toshiba.

Anyway, just download the drivers on Intel website. If setup.exe file shows you an error message about not compatible drivers install them manually (I know this message from my notebook). Therefore navigate to device manager > right click on graphic card > update driver. Then choose the advanced installation where you can choose the driver and directory yourself. Now you are able to install this driver :)

Hi,

I have a Satellite 1100-Z6 notebook which doen't display the RED colour. To troobleshoot this I went to the Intel Graphics Properties and under the Colour tab turned each colours gamma up and noted the response.

Both the Green and Blue work fine but nothing happens when I turn the Red up/down using the slider control so as a consequence I have a blue/green tint on my display.

This is also the same on an external monitor so I suspect its something to do with the Graphics card itself.

Any ideas on how to fix this would be very welcome.

Hi,

did you already tried to deinstall the intel graphics driver and to download/install the latest available version? Would be helpful to know since if you didn?t tried it already, it could be a software related issue.
So, just go here: www.intel.com and download the drivers. Perform the reinstall and tell whats happening and if your problem was solved.

Answer:Satellite C660-M21G SM bus controller and display driver installation issue

From my knowledge the Satellite C660-M21G belongs to the PSC1SE series.
I?m wondering where did you find the right display driver for this series?
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?

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.

hiI would like to know if you can manually change the colour of the taskbar and the active window boxes etc in display properties box.when i right click on the desktop and go in appearance i have only got blue, silver and olive green. this is on xp home tho.can i alter it myself or do i have to download and pay for packages to do it. I have tried to do it myself but to no avail.in advance i can alter the active/inactive title boxes but then the colour only changes as the box does then goes back to the original setting or blue/silver or green.hope i made some sense!!!!

Answer:changing colour

The appearance of Windows can be changed very easily by the user.1. Click on Start > Control Panel > Display2. When the Display box opens click on either "Themes" or "Appearance"3. Modify as necessaryTip : Before making any changes make a note of the current settings so that you can go back to them if you don't like the changes that you have made.

Question: Colour changing

I can't believe what happened to me. I was downloading and my system just hung. All of a sudden my colour scheme changed altogeter. In Display I now have only about 6 colours available. How did this happen and what can I do about it. All my efforts to return to my previous setup was to no avail. Btw how can I return to a start-up 5 hours ago.?ThansDawieWhen was the last time you did something for the first time?

Answer:Colour changing

In Windows XP there's a feature called Windows System Restore, this will restore your OS to a state previously saved by either you or Microsoft Windows.Follow these instructions to restore:1. Start Menu > Run2. Type or paste in.. %SystemRoot%\System32\restore\rstrui.exe ..then press enter3. You should be on the System Restore program, proceed to the option labled "Restore my computer to an earlier time"4. Chose the appropriate restore point and continueOnce you've finished, it's VERY important you run a virus scan on every HDD, and make sure you use updated Anti-Virus software. AVG with the latest upgrades would suffice. If you perform the scan from Safe Mode, you'll have a higher chance of catching and removing a possible infection.In future, whenever you have downloaded something, I reccomend you scan whatever it is. Also, make sure your Anti-Virus software is updated.Best of luck....It is simply phsychological analysis consisting mostly of theories I myself have to decypher and deter their respective plausibility...

As standard when you download something, the pop-up box is gray and the status bar is blue.

Is there any way that the colour scheme etc can be changed to your own preference ?

Also, can similar be done for a website that has a particular colour scheme (My new site will be in colours of black (#000000) and green (#009900) ? ? ? ?
 

Answer:changing colour of download box etc

My progress bars, download bars, and title areas are the same color as my "Active Title Bar" = Red. The box itself is gray, though. All my programs that have progress-indicator functions are red, like when Norton scans emails, the bar is red, and its title area is also red. Everything uses that color when they do their things! When they load up, when they get updates, I can see any color I want. If I changed my "Active Title Bar" to light green, all my progress bars and title bars would be light green, etc.. .You can make it any color in the palette.

The "Active Title Bar" color setting is in Control Panel>Display>Appearance>Advanced>..click "Item">scroll up for "Active Title Bar" & highlight it = under the "Color One" and "Color Two" boxes, pick your color. (I pick the same color for both boxes, I think it looks better). There are some other things there that might change the gray but I don't know - things like "Application Background", "Messge Box" - ?

If you do this, be aware that the main thing it does is change the color the color of your Internet Explorer main title bar. But it will look neato! (And you can make your Inactive Title Bar a color too - mine is light purple.)

hi, I think I read that the LED's that shine on the sides and top of the Dell laptop can be changed to a different colour, any one know how to do it, can find nothing in the handbook..thanks

Answer:Dell, changing colour of LED's ??

I've never heard this before, it is possible I suppose as you can get LEDs that will display more than one colour but I would think they would be more expensive than standard LEDs and therefore any PC company looking to save costs would not use them unless really necessary.I realise this might seem like a strange thing to say as the difference is likely to be only a few pence but if you sell as many PCs as Dell then it would soon add up.I also think that changing the colours would not be that simple as the colours would have a particular function and as they are hard wired it probably couldn't be changed.Hopefully someone that has one of these machines can advise on to whether this is possible.Personally I would think not but perhaps you could tell us where you saw this info on changing the LED colours and this may give us somewhere to start.

hi,
I have noticed over the last day or two that when I am browsing the internet the entire screen is changing coulours slightly.

As I am writing this now the white background on to which I am typing as is changing between white and a very pale blue hue a bit like the colour of the scrollbars on the forum only lighter.

Everything else on the screen is also changing from its original colour to this pale blue as well.

It is doing this every 1-2 seconds.

It does not do it on the windows screen and I have not tried playing a game so I don't know if games are effected.

Can anybody help please?

It's possible your browser has been hijacked and you are running a dodgy .css filke that can cause these symptoms, to check this out please
Go to http://www.tomcoyote.org/hjt/ , and download 'Hijack This!'.
Unzip, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
Press that, save the log somewhere, and please copy & paste its contents to the forum.

It will possibly show other issues deserving our attention, but most of what it lists will be harmless or even required, so do NOT fix anything yet.

Answer:Taskbar colour is not changing !

For you to get the "Window Color and Appearance" window that you show in google is to have Windows 7 selected in Aero themes (personalization window). You have "One Piece Theme" selected. This may be causing your issue.

See if you can change the taskbar color with "Windows 7" as your Aero theme. Then select "One Piece Theme" and see if the taskbar stays the color you changed it to.

Your subject line doesn't seem to match the text in your post.Do you want to change the font color using VBA (subject line) or do you want to recognize the CF color using VBA (text in post)?If you want to recognize the font color set by CF, try something like this:MsgBox Cells(1, 1).DisplayFormat.Font.ColorIndexI don't know what you are trying to accomplish, but perhaps checking the value of the cells that the CF is applied to might be easier than checking the font color set by CF.

When I open a program, regardless of what it is, my monitor tints everything slightly green. If I close or minimise everything the green tint disappears. It's not a problem at this point so much as a concern that my fairly recently purchased monitor might be dying. However, it's really strange that the green tint only appears when a window is open. Would it be fair to say that my monitor is dying, or could it be a software problem of some kind?

Hello..

It is possible that the monitor is going bad, but I would check the video card driver first. You might want to update it.

If possible, check the monitor on a second system and see if it does it. I have seen it work both ways... One time the monitor was actually bad, but the other time, it was just the video card driver.

Guzeppi It is apparent that you are trying to learn how to use a photo manipulation software program as you are repeatedly coming to the CH forum with questions related to a very specific task you are trying to achieve. If i am not mistaken the software that you are trying to use is a version of Adobe Photo-shop. If that is so and because of your earlier stated problem with reading instructions in the English language i have a suggestion for you. I am providing a link to the Adobe Photo-shop software forum which i suggest you join and seek the assistance of the forum participants there. It is not that we here on the CH forums are unwilling to try and help you but it is a fact that numerically the number of CH forum members truly knowledgeable about that program will be small compared to the Photo-shop forum where the majority of the participants will be in a far better position to assist you than we are here. http://forums.adobe.com/community/photoshoptruenorth

re: "all cells in a workbook"All cells in a workbook or all cells in a worksheet?In addition, I assume you mean that you want to change all cells that contain <title="text string"> such that the text string turns red.Can you narrow the range down a liilt bit?e.g. Are these cells all in a specific column or row or randomly spread out through a worksheet?Are they all on one sheet or does the change have to made to multiple sheets?The more detail you provide, the more specific a solution we can offer.Click Here Before Posting Data or VBA Code ---> How To Post Data or Code.

I have one column with a date which a task was done e.g. 12-12-2007, I have another column which needs to 'track' the progress, in this column i need the task coming up to the three year period 6- months to highlight green, then if the task is entering the 6+ months to highlight orange and if it is on the three year date (12-12-2010) it must be red signalling a reoccuring task must begin

Answer:formula for changing cell colour and working

Let's say your date (12/12/2007) is in E4.Select F41 - From the Ribbon select Home - Styles - Conditional Formatting, 2 - From the drop down select 'Manage Rules' and select 'New Rule'3 - In the dialog box select the last item in the list 'Use a formula to determine which cells to format'4 - Enter the formulas below as a 3 separate Rules, clicking the format button then 'Fill' Tab and selecting a color for each Rule:=IF(TODAY()>$E$4+1095,TRUE,FALSE) Format with Red=IF(TODAY()-$E$4>182,TRUE,FALSE) Format as Green=IF(TODAY()-$E$4<182,TRUE,FALSE) Format as OrangeEach of these formula will use the TODAY() function (which always returns the current system date) to compare the current date to the date in E4.1095 is three years worth of "days" (3 * 365) so if "today" is greater than E4 + 3 years, the cell will turn Red.The other formulas use 182, which is approximately 6 months. Adjust as desired.

Hi all,

Basically i need to create a spread sheet Cells A2-99 will have dates input into them at different stages i want to make it so if i put for example 01/01/2015 exactly 90 days after that date the cell turns red.

But all dates will be put in at different times and all dates i input will be different is this possible?

Context for this drivers have to fill in a form once every 90 days we need to keep control over this making sure this is highlighted so it can be corrected asap

How do I change the colour settings on my X500/02G running Windows Home?

At present the colours are way too bright and saturated - similar to the way tvs are set up in stores.

I've changed the brightness to no effect. I've checked the NVIDIA software but its not controling the colours some other sofware is - which I cant find

Any ideas?

Answer:Changing colour settings on Qosmio X500/02G

Hi

How did you change the brightness? Normally therefore you can use the key combinations FN+F6 and FN+F7.

Furthermore the colors can be changed in driver options of your graphic card. Right click on the desktop and choose the display properties. In advanced options you can find it and the driver menu will appear.

So i have had this for only about an hour, but it is really bugging me. I have also read through other posts on this site and they haven't helped. I used a program which changed my colour scheme to basic. This wasn't the first time a program had done that, but when i closed the program it did not change back. I have tried turning off the computer and that sort of thing, but to no success. I also have right clicked desktop, gone to personalize and tried to change it from windows basic, but it did not work. The basic scheme has changed my windows, so when i hover over an icon in the taskbar, the box thing doesn't appear, has changed my taskbar colour to non-transparent and my log on screen (or the screen when you hit ctrl alt delete) to a different colour. Sorry i don't know much about computers, but i would love to get this fixed. thanks
