Question: Need new keyboard for Satellite C660-1DG

Good day!

my concern is about my Toshiba laptop I bought it 2 months ago in Europe when I reach in Philippines my son keep on playing it suddenly it was turn off and it didn't open anymore.

I go immediately to Toshiba centre at Cagayan de oro city and I found out that it was the keyboard problem but they could not replace it because there are no available keyboards suited for that laptop. How can I fix it?

Model name: TOSHIBA SATELLITE C660-1DG.

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: Need new keyboard for Satellite C660-1DG

At first I must say that biggest problem for you is that warranty cannot cover keyboard replacement and you must pay keyboard exchange alone. Notebooks from EMEA (Europe ? Middle East ? Nord Africa) countries have EMEA warranty only so warranty is, unfortunately, not valid.

To be honest I don?t understand why the keyboard must be exchanged if the notebook doesn't start properly.

Anyway, this notebook model has keyboard used on many models so to find new one should not be problem. Best way to order new keyboard is eBay. In last 3 years I?ve ordered several keyboards over eBay. You will not believe me but all of them I ordered from China.

Hi,

I've been the owner of a Toshiba Satellite C660 for approximately five days, and I'm already experiencing severe keyboard lag. Like users of the L270 model, and other posters on this forum, the keyboard has dramatically slowed down and letters are being omitted, slowing down the typing process.

I've tried to update my BIOS, as numerous posters have suggested, but my BIOS is bang up to date.

I haven't tried removing the battery or anything like that. Frankly if I have to do that to get my keyboard working properly the computer is going straight back and I'm demanding a refund.

Any ideas?

Answer:Satellite C660 - Several keyboard lag

Hey,

I never saw any L270 users here... As far as I know there is no such a notebook model?

Anyway, that?s really strange and I never heard about such a problem on Satellite C660. In my opinion everything what you can do is updating the BIOS and using preinstalled Windows version. If you can still notice the same behavior, ask the seller for a replacement model.

I agree with new: This shouldn?t happen on a five day old notebook.

Answer:Satellite C660 keyboard not working

Hi

If external USB keyboard works correctly, the keyboard controller should be OK. So I don't think its motherbaord problem.
I guess the new keyboard is faulty too and you will need to get another try and will need to replace the keyboard once again.

Got a Toshiba Sat Pro C660-1UX with a crazy keyboard.

Pressing some keys I get nothing, some wrong letters and when I press 'd' I get the date and time appears !
Have updated the BIOS, no change. Plug in a USB keyboard, that all works Ok.

Will a new keyboard fix things ?

My daughter has purchased a new laptop - 30 days ago - the keys seem to be playing up.
In particular the arrow keys will not function at all ( the arrows on the number pad are OK though)

The question mark and forward slash key plus the last letter of the alphabet - cannot type the letter!
None of these will function with or without the shift keys.
I have updated the driver - nothing has been spilt on the keyboard.

Is this just a key combination issue or should I return the laptop to supplier.

Hi

Does this function pressing other keys; for example Y is Z and Z is Y or @ is ? and so on?
Possibly the keyboard layout does not match the right language.

Check this Microsoft page how to change this:
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/Change-your-keyboard-layout

Otherwise if this will not help you, then I would say its hardware related issue so in such case the keyboard should be replaced by ASP!

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

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

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

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

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

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

Answer:Satellite C660 - Keyboard issue

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

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

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

Hi everyone,

I recently updated the BIOS to version 1.60 on my C660 PSC0LE-02300JEN (1 year old) and the keyboard is not working properly at all and at times stops working completely, rendering it not usable (I'm writing this on an external USB keyboard.).

There was a recurring problem a few months before I updated the BIOS with the keystroke being delayed or unresponsive sometimes when typing but in the main it still worked.

So I updated the BIOS, as suggested, and I am getting the following serious problems:

The spacebar is either unresponsive or when pressed writes +2 or +++++++++++++++++++++++ over and over until I stop it by pressing the spacebar again.

None of the numbers work.

At times the whole keyboard stops working and none of the keys elicit a response.

Solutions I've tried:

Taking out the battery.

cleaning the keyboard to get anything dislodged from out underneath the keys.

Reinstalling the 1.60 version of the BIOS.

I'm unsure what to do next and would really appreciate advice and help before I attempt to get the keyboard replaced. It would be great to get an opinion before I payout for a fix.

Replies really welcome.

Many thanks

Patrick

Answer:Satellite C660 - keyboard is not working

Hi

I think this keyboard issue is not related to BIOS update not to other installed software.
Fact is that you can use the external USB keyboard as you said above? this means that the BIOS is ok and also the keyboard controller functions properly?

This means that the issue is related to internal keyboard malfunction. I have no explanation why this happened after the update but it could be simple a bad luck?

In my opinion, the issue can be solved by keyboard replacement.

Recently I bought a Satellite C660, but now I would like to know if it's possible to replace the standard keyboard with an illuminated one. Will an illuminated keyboard not work because it needs some kind of a power cable for leds ? Does Toshiba sell such component individually ?

Egert

Answer:Illuminated keyboard on Satellite C660

Such upgrade is not possible.
Illuminated keyboard needs power supply and it must be connected on small port placed on the mainboard. So if your mainboard doesn?t have it there is no chance to use illuminated keyboard.

Also I already asked about this at [US Toshiba Forum|http://forums.toshiba.com/t5/Keyboards-Touchpads/satellite-c660-cekbfilter-sys-deleted-and-no-keyboard/td-p/364673] and there was advise to ask here too

So Is here way to recover drivers? As I already said at US Toshiba Forum - I already tryed delete touch pad driver and instal from Synaptic official website, and I not changed anything.

Also I think antivirus may delete not only file, but do some fixes to remove "wrone" driver

Answer:Re: Satellite C660 - keyboard and touchpad are not working

Huh it is very stupid situation now. I never had such problems but it will be interesting to find solution to this.

Have you tried to connect external mouse, just to see if this can work? I mean it is much easier to use windows with mouse and choose different options.

If this works try to open device manager and properties for keyboard. There you can find option for driver update. Check if some driver update can be found. Fact is that keyboard uses standard Microsoft driver so f you are online maybe some driver can be found.

Of course best and easiest solution for you is recovery installation. If you don?t want to do this try to find right drivers using such driver update option.

One more thing: if you have so important stuff saved on HDD you can remove it from your notebook and connect it to other PC/notebook as external device and make backup. After doing this you can install recovery image and problem is solved.

Hello,

I've been using my Satellite for like a year now and I am quite happy with its functionality but lately the up arrow (Moving keys) it stuck for a bit when clicked also making a noise which can be quite annoying after a while..

I have checked on internet and I found only videos of totally removing the keyboard of a C660.
Can I just remove a button and put it back or I could damage it even more?

Please advice

Answer:Satellite C660-1PH - keyboard button stuck

As far as I know you cannot repair single buttons. What you can do is to remove keyboard cap and eventually clean the small plastic mechanism placed under the cap.
Later you can place key cap in the right position and press it down gently. When you hear ?click? the cap should be in place again.

If you try to do this be careful and gently.

Answer:Satellite C660 - new internal keyboard does not work

Did you ever check if the external USN keyboard works properly?

I?m asking because in case the external keyboard would not work properly, the internal keyboard problem could be related to faulty keyboard controller (motherboard) or system problem.

In case the external keyboard would work properly, you simply had bad luck with the new keyboard. It could be possible that the new keyboard malfunctions.

>Am running windows 7 on toshiba satellite pro laptop and was wondering if its a software or perhaps hardware issue.

Keyboard is controlled by an Microsoft driver which is part of the Window system.
So the story is quite simple? either your internal keyboard is faulty or the keyboard controller on the motherboard does not work.

How to find out what part is affected?
This is also quite a simple procedure? you need to connect an external USB keyboard.
If you notice the same problems using external keyboard, the problem is related to keyboard controller. If you don?t notice any problems using the USB keyboard, the internal notebook keyboard malfunctions? in such case it needs to be replaced.

Answer:Satellite C660-28T - Keyboard and touch pad problems

Hi

Regarding the keyboard issue:

From my point of few the described keyboard problem sounds like a hardware related malfunction… probably in order to fix it, the internal keyboard should be replaced… just to ensure that your internal keyboard is affected, please attach the external USB keyboard and check whether it would work properly.
If you will not notice any issues, the problem is caused definitely by internal keyboard malfunction and as mentioned before, you would need to replace the keyboard.

Regarding the touchpad:

I’m not quite sure if both issues are related to each other but touchpad can be disabled using the function keys… I recommend you to check this… (function key details can be found also in user manual)… you can also try to reinstall the touchpad drive.

Additional tip: this forum contains many threads about similar issues… therefore I would recommend you to read the recommendations posted in this community.

Hi,

I am the owner of an Toshiba Satellite C660-PSC1GE and my laptop suffers from the known keyboard problem (keys working twice or not working at all).

I already updated my BIOS to the newest version 1.90 which according to Toshiba should have solved the problem. A reboot later the problem is persisting though.
Any suggestions? I really need the laptop to work right now and would really like to avoid to bring it to a shop.

Answer:Persistent keyboard problem on Satellite C660

Indeed the keyboard issue should be solved by BIOS update as mentioned here:
http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/kb0/TSB1103370000R02.htm

You could also try to press "Fn" key then "N" key then "1" in order to check if the keystroke issue still appears?
But of course it could be possible that the mentioned issue is not the same and possibly its related to keyboard malfunction?
In such case the keyboard should be replaced in order to check if this could help.

By the way: does the external USB keyboard work properly?
It the USB keyboard work properly, then this issue is NOT related to BIOS but possibly to internal keyboard malfunction.

Hello,

A month ago I purchased a Toshiba C660-1FE. After three weeks my HD broke down. I bought a new HD from Western Digital and replaced the broken HD. As I did not make an recovery image of my HD, I had to order the Product recovery discs off the Toshiba website (3 discs, of which disc 1 and 3 were the only one's required for installation).

Now, I have the problem that my laptop keyboard does not work. I am currently using a USB keyboard and mouse to replace my keyboard and touchpad of the laptop.

The laptop keyboard works fine in BIOS. Therefore, I hope it's just a driver problem.

I have:

tried finding and installing lots of drivers on from the toshiba website, no result.
tried changing settings in the bios (usb enable/disable).
tried to fix the problem by re-installing the entire computer again several times.

The keyboard seems to work until windows loads. When the system is starting up I can press caps lock and num lock and the green lights come on. This all stops working once the windows startup symbol appears.

Perhaps a second problem in the device manager: under the display-adapter, 2 subcategories have exclamation marks: it says Mobile Intel(R) 4 series express chipset family twice!

Answer:After Recovery with CD Satellite C660-1FE keyboard does NOT work

Hi

Keyboard works in BIOS? this means that the keyboard hardware should be ok and the connection between the motherboard and keyboard is established.

So what could be wrong? Keyboard driver?
Hmm? the keyboard driver is a part of the Windows OS and is installed automatically while OS installation?
I would recommend following:
Go to device manager and extract the point Keyboard.
There you should see something like ?standard PS/2 keyboard?
If you will see a red cross near this device, then this means that the keyboard is disabled.
Usually you should be able to enable this again (in device manager).
If there is no red cross, then I recommend deleting this keyboard from the device manager list?then reboot the notebook. Usually the OS should recognize the removed device automatically and should install the driver too.

Check this.

By the way: it could be possible that you have received a wrong Recovery disk? this could explain the issues after the recover procedure?

Answer:Satellite C660 - Keyboard and Touchpad failing

Before we start the discussion one question: do you have problem with FN keys only or you cannot use whole keyboard?
What is with touchpad? Is touchpad maybe disabled? Have you installed Synaptics touchpad driver?
It is really not easy to say what is going on there but maybe you should install recovery image and test functionality with ?factory settings?. I mean with clean OS installation everything should be OK. If not there must be some hardware problem.

The list of problems are as follows:

Keyboard doesn't work
Mouse pad and button's don't work
USB mouse and keyboard don't work (but light up with power)
It also likes to turn itself off randomly when the battery in but this is the least of the problems.

any ideas as to why this is doing this and what can be done to fix it will be much appreciated.

thanks.

Answer:Satellite C660 keyboard and mouse not working

Hi

I?m wondering about your statement about external USB mouse and keyboard.
I thought that your problem was related to faulty touchpad module and internal keyboard but now I?m thinking that this cannot be the case since the external USB keyboard does not work as well as the external USB mouse.

Probably its more serious hardware malfunction: maybe something related to the motherboard??? Who knows? an hardware diagnostic test needs to be done to confirm this?

Just one question: are you able to access the BIOS? I mean does the F2 keyboard button work in order to access the BIOS?

I am running Windows 7 ultimate 64bit and all windows updates are done

Any help will be greatly appreciated as this is really annoying the whole family almost rendering the laptop unusable.

Hi,

Last week, I bought my first laptop - a C660.
A few days after I bought it, I noticed that it was typing doubles of characters or missing characters out completely.
Now, it might just be that I'm adjusting to the keyboard, but I was wondering if there's been any problems with the keyboards?

Answer:Satellite C660-1TK Windows start freezing after 55C and keyboard lags

Hi

Keyboard lag can be solved by BIOS update.
Update the BIOS to the latest state.
The BIOS can be downloaded from the Toshiba European driver page.

Furthermore you should clean the cooling fans.
Possibly the dust prevents the fans from rotating faster? use an compressed air spray to get the dust removed?

Dear all,


I have a strange problem with my keyboard for several weeks already. It performs strangely - lags all the time. In every program or Internet site (in the different Internet browsers) - characters (it doesn`t matter which one) would once appear and on the next time would simply not. Sometimes they just appear several times while I am typing. Sometimes simply nothing appears on the screen. Another test - pushing down one character for a long period of time would appear on the screen, but would stop for a fractions of the second and then would continue again visualizing on the screen. This is really annoying. You simply can not write. If I hold down a different character individully and slowly, I wouldn`t have any problems, but I can not write in this way.


That is why I decided to format my Windows OS today (XP PRO SP3) - no effect at all. No viruses. I tried from the WIndows services to turn them on and off one by one - no effect again.



After following these steps:

Workaround Procedure
1.Press then release the 'Fn' key
2.Press then release the 'N' key
3.Press then release the '1' key

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.

Answer:Satellite C660 - keyboard is not working but Num lock and Caps lock are lit

Hi

Are you able to disable the CapsLock and NumLock?
Can you access the BIOS pressing F2 while powering up the unit?

If this does not work, I would recommend checking an external USB keyboard.
If the USB keyboard would functions, then this means that the internal keyboard is faulty and needs to be replaced.

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.

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).

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

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.

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.

Why you don?t believe the official specifications?

Satellite Pro C660 has Intel GL40 Express Chipset and this chipset is limited to 4GB RAM. That means your notebook supports only 4GB RAM and not more.

I bought 2 x 4Gb memory modules to upgrade the memory to 8Gb.
With 8Gb installed the laptop won't boot but it will boot with 6Gb installed.
Both the 4Gb modules work in the 6Gb configuration and the BOIS is 1.8.

Any ideas?

Answer:Satellite C660-108 does not boot up with 8GB RAM

Hi

According to the user manual, this notebook can be upgraded up to 8GB RAM.

So you should be able to use the 2x 4GB RAM modules?

I think both modules are not compatible to each other and therefore the notebook cannot boot up.

You should test the notebook using other modules.

Hi,
I need install Solidworks 2011 on my Satellite C660-226, the installation seem normal but i cannot run the software. The first windows is opened and after nothing !!!!

Similar problem with CatalystEX, normal installation ( ?) but the software stop with error's message." Memory can be defective"
I use Windows 7 pro.

Help !!!!!!

Answer:Cannot run Solidworks on Satellite C660-226

Hi

I think this 3D software needs some graphic memory.

The INTEL HM55 graphic card should be ok for such purposes and the 3D Graphic Accelerator is supported too.

I think you should update the graphic card driver? maybe you can use the latest one from the Intel page.

Hi!

I have a Toshiba Satellite C660-11W, who I bought 10 months ago. Since October, the num pad of my laptop does not work, but when I push the button "Num Lock", it makes a sound like I had activated the sticky keys.

How do I solve this problem?

Answer:Satellite C660-11W - Num pad does not work

I think the service technician should need to initialize the Numpad function by Test & Diagnostic software and should replace the keyboard if the test would fail.

Hi all

My C660 is just over a year old & slowing down etc, I thought Id reformat it with the 4 recovery discs I made when I first got it, problem is, for a while now the cd/dvd player doesnt start as soon as a disc is inserted & I have to open it manually. Anyway I put the first recovery disc in & as usual nothing happened, I went to "My Computer" & opened it from there thinking it would start doing what its supposed to, it did nothing but open up & display what is on the disc :-(

How do I get it to run so I can go through the other 4 discs & make my lappie like new again????

Answer:How to reformat Satellite C660?

Start your notebook and press F12 to enter boot menu.
When the boot menu is shown on the screen open optical disc drive and put first disc inside.
Choose CD/DVD drive on teh list and press ENTER button.

ODD will start to read data saved on the disc and recovery installation should start. It starts with main menu.

How it looks like you can see on http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/kb0/HTD1303440001R01.htm
Just follow the menu and continue with installation.

If you have more questions you are welcome.

Hello everybody.
I have a laptop (model in title) that is running into a strange issue. It has happened two days ago: I was trying to turn it on and while I were onto win7 login screen, it suddenly turn off. Apart that fact, that of course is not related to what I'm asking here, when I tried to turn it on again, a white-blinking-dash appears into top-left corner of the screen.

First thing I had in mind: no bootable HDD; basically an error into MBR o something like this?

My first try was to access recovery partition (by pressing F8) but nothing happens. So I've tried also with every possible F{1,2,3,...,12} key but without success. Strange, I've never formatted my laptop, toshiba didn't mount a recovery partition for that model?
Ok, nevermind, as I'm an IT guy and I'm quite skilled, my second try was to create a bootable USB stick with some tool (like partition manager, gparted and so on...) and to boot the utility from there just to check and fix errors (if there are).

With my big surprise, this laptop seems not to be able to boot from USB!

What I've tried:

- Create a stick either with MBR for BIOS and UEFI (FAT32, NTFS)
- Create a stick either with GPT for UEFI (FAT32, NTFS)
- Switch BOOT order in BIOS
- Pressed F12 to select manually USB to boot
- Check for safe mode (that BIOS [1.40] seems not to have that possibility)
- Change to CMS (that BIOS seems not to have that possibility)

So I'm stuck here, wondering why this laptop can't make a normal boo... Read more

Answer:Satellite C660-155 - cannot use FN keys

You need to install TOSHIBA Flash Cards Support Utility and then Toshiba value added package.

By the way: if you want to use own OS installation you need to install many other drivers, tools and utilities that should be installed in right installation order.

Hi, my laptop, Toshiba Satellite C660-1RR, is experiencing terrible problems. First, the blue screen (BSOD) will appear, and then, the laptop either shuts down or restarts again and again. Then upon shutting down, it only opens after hours later. When it is switched on, it doesn't last for even 5 minutes.

All the drivers have been installed and re-installed but the same problem still exist.

Please help.

Answer:BSOD on Satellite C660-1RR

Hi

There are different reasons for BSOD errors.
The BSOD could appear due to serious software problems or hardware malfunction.

You can check easily if its software or hardware related problem.
Take your Toshiba Recovery disk and set the notebook back to factory settings.
In case this will not solve the BSOD problem, the issue is caused definitely by hardware problems.

Did you notice a higher internal temp?
I had a similar problem with my 6 year old notebook. Because of the dust, the internal memory modules could not be cooled down and this caused BSOD.
I had cleaned the cooling fans and removed the dust using compressed air spray.

This solved by BSOD problem for a while?

Hello people,

My laptop Toshiba Satellite *c660-1uj* won't start up.

It does nothing when I press the powerbutton.
When I plug in the poweradapter I hear a clicking sound this is with or without the battery and I also see the battery light(led) flashing green.

I think it got something to do with my motherboard but i'm not sure.

I would like to be sure before I buy a new one.
Does anyone know where the problem comes from and how to fix it?

Thanks in advance.

Kind regards,


Sjoerd

Answer:My Satellite C660-1UJ won't start up

> I think it got something to do with my motherboard but i'm not sure.
Yes, I think this problem could be related to motherboard problems.
But this would be the worst case since new motherboard is very expensive part? I gues warranty isn't valid?

But why you don?t test the memory modules? Faulty RAM can prevent the notebook from booting and powering ON. RAM module replacement is not very difficult.

Of course you would need to purchase new modules just for the check? but maybe you could visit some notebook/computer technicians? downtown who could test the unit with new RAM modules.
In such case you would not need to purchase the parts just for testing purposes.

Hey guys,

Thanks a lot for taking a look at my post.
I have Satellite C660-108. I'm thinking of upgrading ram from 3 GB up to 8 GB.
I will be very grateful if someone could answer my questions before I make a purchase.

This is a Ram model. I'm thinking of buying.

Kingston HyperX Plug in and Play DDR3 1600MHz CL9 8GB SODIMM Memory Module

I wonder if it would fit to my laptop ?

Also I found this on C660-108

Type : Intel? Graphics Media Accelerator HD
memory amount : up to 1,273 MB shared memory with 3 GB system memory installed, and up to 1,696 MB with 4 GB system memory, (with pre-installed 64-bit operating system)
memory type : shared .

If I upgrade ram up to 8 GB would it mean that my graphics system memory will be up to 3,392 MB as well ?

Thank you so much.

Kit

Answer:RAM upgrade up to 8GB on Satellite C660-180

According to Toshiba notebook spec page, the 8GB RAM (2 x 4GB) are definitely possible.
Kingston is a good RAM manufacturer and provide good quality modules.

The RAM modules should support following sepcs:
DDR3 1066MHz (PC3-8500)

The CPU PENTIUM P6100 (2.00GHZ) supports an 1.066MHZ FSB and therefore the PC3-8500 should run at full speed 1066MHz

> f I upgrade ram up to 8 GB would it mean that my graphics system memory will be up to 3,392 MB as well ?
More RAM means a bigger part can be shared with the GPU but this is controlled by graphic card driver automatically.

hello i have a toshiba satellite c660-2q8 laptop,

when i got it it only had 1g of Ram i now have got 8g of RAM for it but as soon as i fit it the laptop starts like normal with the BIOS screen then i get a black screen with a flashing - and thats it.

After some time it will restart and do it again.
I have contacted the place i got the RAM it.
The RAM is right and there said it was the BIOS that needs updating but it is version 1.50 and will not update cos it is up to date if i put the old RAM back it boots fine

can some one please help

Answer:Satellite C660-2Q8 does not start with 8GB RAM

It?s NOT BIOS issue but the RAM modules are NOT compatible.
Even if the guys says that the RAM module are right, obviously they are NOT?


The 4GB Genuine Toshiba PC3 DDR3 (1333MHz) Memory Module PA3918U-1M4G should be OK and should work properly.
Also the Kingston modules are great and provide good quality.

Cheaper modules might not be fully compatible or would not work properly.

I'm trying to put a new hard drive in a C660 but cannot get to the 'boot from cd' option no matter what i do.

If i press F2 i get the windows boot manager with one option.
Windows 7

If i go to F8 i get Advanced boot options.
Safe mode ect. No CD option

F12 takes me to Windows error recovery with 2 options
Launch setup repair ( recommended )
Start windows normally

Also tried 0 on powerup, that just gives F2 and F12 options.

Can anyone tell me how to get to boot from the cd?

many thanks

Answer:Satellite C660 -cannot boot from ODD

Try to get hold of an external cd drive and set your bios to start from usb device or usb cd rom. You can also copy your installation disc to a bootable flash drive.

Answer:How to connect my Satellite C660-119 to TV

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 was watching a film on my Toshiba Satellite C660-17E and all of a sudden the computer powered off as it gone in to hibernate mode, so I plugged the power. I could see two lights in front of the laptop one from the ac power and the other to indicate the computer was on.

So I tried to re-start the computer I could hear it powering but nothing on the screen, so I i thought my LCD screen was gone, so I tried again switching off, unplugging, removing the battery, and putting the battery and the ac power back just to notice that the ac power now is not working because the power indicator light is no more coming on, only the green indicating that the computer should be on but there is nothing on the screen.

1) so now I will list what is happening when I try to switch on.

when I press the power button - I can here noise as if want to power up but nothing on screen for a couple minutes the I here some activity but with very low noise.

2) ac power not working anymore when plugged to the lap top.

the green light to indicate the laptop is on is working as the battery still have some power but I know when the battery go flat I will have nothing

so all I have is one green light a bit of noise for a couple minutes and the fan works , no BIOs, no windows, no battery charging,

so I don't know if is the LCD, MOTHER BOARD or else

Basically, my Satellite C660-2QN battery wore out the other day (1 month out of warranty, typical!).
I checked out Toshiba's replacements and decided to see if I could get a cheaper one.

I found on Amazon a replacement battery advertised as being for all Satellite C660S, it basically arrived today and I first noted that it said on the back it was modelled for Satellite Pro.

When I tried to fit it into my laptop, it was too large, though my mother, who insists it is correct, forced it in. It went fine for a while until the battery needed charging, at which point I plugged it in.

However, the battery doesn't charge, or if it does, very slowly. It's gone from 6% to 12% in around one-and-a-half hours. So I pose the question, does a Satellite Pro battery fit a regular Satellite C660?

If not, I'll keep using my old one as a placeholder and stay on AC power when it's in use.

Regards,
Ryan.

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.
