Satellite C660-10F - Need Windows XP 32bit LAN driver

Question: Satellite C660-10F - Need Windows XP 32bit LAN driver

Hi there,
I want to backup my C660-10F harddisk to a network storage using Ghost 15 Recovery Disk CD. Therefore I have to configure the bootable Recovery Disk CD with the C660-10F LAN driver for XP 32bit to get access to the network when booting from this CD. When I'm using the file with the XP drivers from the Toshiba download page I get the error message

Cannot copy a 64-bit hardware device driver to a 32-bit Srd image. One or more binary files listed in ... does not match the target SRD platform

It seems that the XP drivers contain partly 64-bit files. Same problem when using the original Realtek drivers for PCIe FE Family Controller! Where can I get functioning 32-bit XP drivers for the LAN controller of the C660-10F?

Preferred Solution: Satellite C660-10F - Need Windows XP 32bit LAN driver

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Satellite C660-10F - Need Windows XP 32bit LAN driver

Hi lagraf,

All Windows XP drivers on Toshiba website are for 32bit XP version because 64bit was never supported.

Everything what you can do is testing the Realtek drivers directly:

If it doesn?t work I think you have to contact the external HDD directly. The most NAS devices also have USB port.

I recently bought Satellite C660-1MP
Product Code PSC1NE-006004G5

I bought Windows7 32bit

I searched for 32bit drivers on the toshiba website and there are not for 32 bit. I tried 64bit unsuccesfully.

Please advice if you have the right drivers. I canot install 64bit version due tu some application conflicts.

Answer:Need Win7 32bit drivers for Satellite C660-1MP

You are right. Drivers for Win7 32bit are not offered. But there is one interesting thing: your notebook has Intel HM65 Express Chipset and this chipset is offered on several other models and none of them is supported for 32 bit OS.

I?ve tried to find something but unfortunately without success. Sorry. Try to find driver on Intel support page. If you will find it let us know. We can try to find other important drivers together.

Well, Toshiba have now stated that Satellite Pro C660-2DJ is not capable of Windows 10 Upgrade. This after I found opposite statement on other sites and installed it. I am happy enough, given that I'm using it. Ah there is always a but... the Chicony USB 2 Laptop camera is registered as a device, but with (!) in yellow stating no Driver. I have found a driver for this camera, but under Windows 7 64 Bit.

Would it be very risky to install an old original Driver now that Windows 10 is fine? As a rider to this, I now know there are thousands of folk who were assure that their machines would upgrade to Windows 10 and they are desperate because very little works. Thoughts, anyone?

Answer:Satellite Pro C660-2DJ - Windows 10 Upgrade and missing Chicony Driver

Since Win8 Toshiba doesn't offer webcam driver anymore and operating system uses standard Windows driver.
I still didn’t upgrade my Satellite S50-B so I don't know if I will have identical problem on my machine.

I’m really interested if any other forum user has solution for this.

Try installing the drivers from the Toshiba America website.
If there are no Win7 drivers for your model, try here:

The most important are:

I'm looking for a touchpad driver for my P100 (PSPA4E) which works under Windows 7 32bit. After changing from Windows XP to Windows 7 the tochpad isn't working any longer.

Thx in advance for your help!


Answer:Satellite Pro P100 - Touchpad driver for Windows 7 32bit


Generally speaking for touchpad no additional driver is necassary. The touchpad also works without touchpad driver because the Windows standard driver will be used.
Touchpad driver is only important for special functions like virtual scrolling, change tapping settings, etc.

You can download all driver on official Toshiba website: > Support & Downloads > Download Drivers

But you have to search in driver *Archive* because it?s old notebook model.
It?s no Windows 7 32bit driver available but I saw touchpad driver for Vista. It should work on Windows 7 too. :)

I have a problem in installing the ATI vga-driver. I know that only drivers from the Toshiba's site can be used, but they don't even work. I have a Toshiba Satellite C660 1-EF notebook with ATI HD5470, and Windows 7 SP1 x64 installed. I had bought it without an OS, so I didn't get any disks.

After I installed (clean install) the OS, I saw that some devices had been installed with the built in drivers of the Windows (or not even installed). So I decided to download the appropriate drivers. The first problem was, that I couldn't find ATI driver for W7 x64 on the Toshiba's site for this type of notebook. I tried to find a similar laptop, which has the same graphics card. At least I could find a driver. But when I wanted to install it, it was closed. It didn't do anything, just closed.

Since that, I have tried several drivers (most of them I downloaded from the Toshiba's site), but the result was the same.

What should I do?

I have a Toshiba Satellite C660-28T.

The hard drive has failed. I have phoned Toshiba Support who are sending me out a replacement.

However as an interim measure I was going to put in my spare hard drive and do a fresh install of another operating system which I have a spare key for (Win 7).

However I can't get past the "Load Drivers" screen as the laptop didn't come with any driver discs.
I can't find the relevant drivers from the Toshiba website (I did try some intel drivers which I thought were the right ones but and it says they are unsigned and just reverts back to the load drivers screen).

I have made recovery disks but obviously can't use them on the new hard drive as it doesn't have the recovery partition.

Any ideas on where I can get the appropriate drivers from?

If you have made a recovery disk using the preinstalled Toshiba recovery media creator tool, then you have just to boot from this disk in order to start the installation.

Hello all,

So i'm trying to update my graphics driver on a satellite C660 1LD and I'm getting nowhere fast.

The current driver i have is version
Toshiba website offers version which i'm led to believe is an older version than my current one?

I have tried downloading the newest version from the Intel website however this doesn't work either and i cant actually find what the newest version is from this site. Can anyone offer any advice on how to get this done?

The annoying thing is i went through this process over a year ago to fix a bug on civilization 5. I remember it being a bit of a headache then. The most annoying part is that i cant remember the processes i had to go through to get it done. Doh!

Thanks in advance


Answer:Trying to update graphics driver for Satellite C660-1LD


Generally speaking you should use Toshiba drivers only. Why? Drivers offered on Toshiba support page are tested and adapted to work with notebook?s hardware. Of course, you can use drivers from GPU manufacturers support page but you must know that newer drivers will increase GPU performance. More performance means more heat and also a bit risk for hardware.

Result can be suddenly shut downs or even hardware damage.
Anyway, I hope you are satisfied with GPU performance with your last driver so I don't understand why you want to update current version. Be happy that everything works well with this ?non-supported? driver version.

Anyway, I?m sure that you know that everything you do is on your own risk so you can do with your notebook whatever you want. I found one interesting article that may help you.

Good luck

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

I can't install WLAN driver on my Satellite C660-168 after Windows 7 installing.

What's the problem?

Answer:Can not instal Win7 WLAN Driver for Satellite C660-168


Maybe you used a wrong WLan driver?.
The notebook support BROADCOM 802.11(B/G) BCM94313-HMC WLan card.

I have a Satellite C660 and I, just recently, reformatted it. There was no problem with the reformatting. I installed Windows 7 Ultimate x64 bit. After that, i installed the proper drivers like the LAN drivers. There was no problem until I installed Counter-Strike 1.6. 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.

i tried to find the cause of this problem online and most of the solutions i found was to update my display driver. Evidently, the updated driver supports OpenGL. (Please explain if i got something wrong as I'm not really a techie).

Answer:Satellite C660-1TN. Win XP Pro SP3. Driver of video card GF 315M

Your corporate standards are pretty old. It should be time for corporate update to new standards. ;)

Anyway, newest notebook models are not supported for old operating systems and newest notebook models are designed for newest operating system. Newest notebook models have newest hardware also designed for newest OS.

Problem is not Toshiba or WXP support. As far as I know even Microsoft doesn?t support WXP anymore.

Check if NVIDIA supports WXP for GeForce 315M.

Hi Folks,

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

Story so far...

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

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

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

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

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

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

Several websites have links for what seem to be the correct drivers - but t... Read more

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?

I trialled Lightroom 5 on my Satellite Pro C660 and it worked fine.

I decided to get it, and that week Lightroom 6 came out, so I bought Lightroom 6.

LR6 gets to its splash screen and then stops and Windows7 closes it.
I contacted Adobe and they went onto my machine and identified the problem as being the graphics card and said I need a driver update.

I have been on the Toshiba site and it says that the latest available driver is, which is the one I currently have (and was last modified in 2012).

I have been on the Intel site and their auto-upgrader says the machine has a customized driver so contact Toshiba.
I have looked around the Intel site and tried to install what look to be plausible drivers, but haven't found one which would install.

My setup includes an LG 22" monitor connected to the laptop with the desktop spread across the two screens (laptop and monitor).

Does anyone know what the driver upgrade I need would be or how I can find out?


Answer:Satellite Pro C660 needs graphics driver upgrade for Adobe Lightroom 6

The graphic card driver from Intel page can be used and you can also download the driver directly from the page.

What CPU does your notebook support?
What Intel GPU (chipset Intel HD graphics ******) does the notebook support?

The Intel download page provides Intel driver as an exe or zip package

You need to download and to unpack the zip package.
Then you will be able to update the driver within the device manager choosing the Advanced installation update procedure.

Having recently set up a new Satellite C660-1ZM running Windows 7 64bit (upgraded from Home Premium to Ultimate) for a friend, the mousepad and USB ports have suddenly stopped working. The drivers show an exclamation mark against them and the error is "code 52" which is related to driver signing. Windows doesn't seem to recognise the driver signatures for the published drivers that came on the machine's pre-installed disc, so the devices don't work. I've updated the drivers (Intel chipset [which includes USB]; Synaptics touchpad) to the latest ones publised on the Toshiba web site - and we have the same problem.

Pressing F8 on boot allows you to select "disable checking of driver signing" in the WIndows 7 boot options, which then enables the drivers and all is well, until you reboot - at which point you have to hit F8 again.

I think that one of the many recent Windows updates has somehow messed things up, but we can't easily prove that. The machine worked fine for a week or so, then the mousepad suddenly quit working around 8th August 2012.

1) Are there valid signed drivers that pass whatever checks Microsoft impose on driver signing, including whatever checks they've potentially just imposed via some recently inflicted update?

2) Does anyone know exactly how to disable the checking of driver signing permanently, so that a reboot will not require the F8 keypress and so on?

Answer:Satellite C660-1ZM Win 7 64bit: mousepad and USB - "code 52" driver error


Did you receive the error that windows cannot verify the digital signature for the drivers required for this device? Usually this means the error code 52
Since the USB drivers are parts of the Windows OS, I don?t think that this could be an signature issue? I think some files are damaged.

Try to uninstalling/reinstalling the driver and deleting the device and it?s drivers from device manager before reinstalling.
Usually this should help, if not, well try to repair the system.

Power up the unit and press F8. Then choose Repair my Computer.
Now choose the first option which would help to repair the system.

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


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

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

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.

From my knowledge the Satellite C660-M21G belongs to the PSC1SE 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?

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.

What to say; I use the driver from Toshiba page and I?m able to use Aero.
But note; Aero has to be supported by graphic card and other notebook hardware components. If the hardware requirements are too low, then you would not be able to enable Aero.

In the Toshiba driver download section i can only find a display driver from the year 2008 (V8.383.1.1).
This is quite old for a display driver. Is it possible to get a newer one?
The original Catalyst Driver Pack from ATI doesn't fit. No driver is recognized and no driver was installed when i tried this.



Answer:Need newer display driver for Satellite P200D Vista 32bit

Hmm? the Toshiba driver page provides always the newest release of graphic card driver for this notebook model.
If you need newer version then you will need to search on some 3rd party pages for such driver.

But usage of 3rd party drivers is your own risk.
However, you could try drivers from pages like or directly from ATI page.

But if you want to install such drivers then you have to do this manually via device manager.
There you have to use +Advanced installation+ procedure and have to point directly to the downloaded drivers.

1) When recovering from Standby, the display goes to 1024x768 instead of going back to 1280x800
2) When playing Lineage 2, the game crashes to Desktop and I get the error message "Display driver igfx stopped responding and was recovered". After googling a little, i figured out a new display driver for my Intel 945GM Express would resolve the problem. So I downloaded the proper driver from but I can't install it. I'm getting an error message saying "Installed driver is not verified for this computer. Ask the computer manufacturer for the appropriate driver." So I went to the toshiba website and I've downloaded the appropriate driver from there (well, the one on is not the latest, has a newer one). But when I tried to install it, I got the message that my computer does not meet the minimum requirements for the installation! What does this mean?! I've read the readme file and my laptop definitely meets the requirements, besides the driver I've downloaded has to be working for the Satellite Pro U200, because I've entered all the needed info for downloading the driver.

So can someone please solve my problem? And if not, is there a toshiba support hotline or something where i can call?

Answer:Graphic Driver on Satellite Pro U200 (Vista Business 32bit CZECH)

1st: Download the latest driver from the iNTEL-Page.
2nd: !UNINSTALL! the old one, under Add/remove Programs.
3rd: Reboot.
4th: Install the new driver.
5th: Reboot.
6th: Pray ;)

Good Luck. The error comes only when you try to install a new driver over another old one (which is from Toshiba). But Toshiba is never up-to-date when it comes to drivers, so better look for wireless, display and chipset always on the intel page!

When can we expect to be able to download the driver software to enable an upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10?

And, when is Toshiba Support going to have enough staff to take calls within a reasonable time-frame? Sorry but a wit of 10 minutes on a premium rate number is not acceptable!

My C660 needs a new hard drive. It came with Windows 7 home premium pre-installed and I would like to return to that.

If I go to Microsoft to download windows 7 with my product key, it gives an error. I contacted MS support. I don't quite remember what they said but they couldn't help, possibly because it was a manufacturer installed version?

So If I get a new hard drive, how can I return to my previous OS, Windows 7 Home Premium?

Help please?

Answer:Satellite C660 needs new HDD - Windows 7

You can have previous OS (recovery image) if you install it using recovery media (DVD or USB).
I presume you didn’t create this recovery media in the past, right?

If you still can use your notebook and preinstalled OS try please to create this media using preinstalled recovery media utility. More about that you can read in user’s manuals document.

I am going to download this new Windows 8 Preview..
Will it accept the drivers for my laptop??
My laptop is TOSHIBA

*PART NO.* PSC1GE - 029002AR
*SERIAL NO.* 6B206893K

Answer:Windows 8 on Satellite C660-1M0

Untl now I didn?t make some experiments with Win8 but I think there should not be problem if you use Win7 drivers.

Create recovery DVD and make test with Win8. If you don?t like it or you will see that there are problems with drivers, tools or utilities installation you can install recovery image again using created recovery DVD.

I think you are the first one with Win8 and it will be nice if you can make short report about all this. It will be interesting to read your experience about it.

I just installed windows 8 on my Satellite C660-162 PSCOSE and I want to know if it's compatible with my Toshiba model because I heard that windows 8 can damage the computer if it's not compatible with it

Thanks in advance

Answer:Is Satellite C660-162 compatible with Windows 8?


In my opinion such question should be asked before Win8 installation. More about Win8 instalation on Toshiba notebooks you can read on
There you can check support for your notebook model > Toshiba Compatibility Matrix. Check it.
>... I heard that windows 8 can damage the computer if it's not compatible with it
I don't know what kind of damage you mean but generally speaking you can install any OS and check if and how it works.

Only thing that will be damaged is HDD recovery option so I hope you have created recovery disc before you have installed Win8 version.

If you have more questions you are welcome.

I have a Toshiba Satellite C660-2KW.
I would like to know if it's possible to make the upgrade for the Windows 10.

If not, when will be possible to do that?

In case of not be possible to upgrade, what are the "problems"/risks in upgrade for the Windows 10?

Thank you so much.


Answer:Satellite C660-2KW - Upgrade to Windows 10??

You have pretty old notebook model and it will not be supported for Win10.
I presume you have created recovery back-up (recovery media) so you can test your notebook and install Win10 to see how it works.
I don’t know if you can have some big problems but what can happen is that sound will not work properly.

I have older non Toshiba notebook and Win10 was installed successfully. Everything works pretty well except sound.

Test it. Play a bit with it. If you will not be happy with it you can go back to original OS anytime you want.

Intel Core i3 M380
RAM 2GB total(i added 1gb was actually 1gb)

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

Thanks in advance...

Answer:Does Satellite C660 support Windows 8

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

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

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

More details here:

I have no idea what C660-xxx do you have exactly but all Toshiba drivers are available here:

I have installed a new hdd in my C665. I went to Microsoft Download page to download windows 7. I have the activation # on the sticker underneath. Microsoft said I could not download because windows 7 was originally put on this laptop by Toshiba. Microsoft also said I have to get in touch with Toshiba.
I cannot find any satisfaction on the Toshiba site and wanted to know if anyone can help me solve this problem.

I have a Satellite C660-162 and suddenly it was soo slow so I tried to install a new Windows but I could not install it and gives me this error Windows cannot be installed to disk 0 partition 1 or 2 and when I press it " Windows cannot be installed to this disk. This computers hardware may not support booting to the disk. Ensure that the disks controller is enabled in the computers bios menu".

Then I?ve changed the boot priority or something like it to fast and it was normal after that my Toshiba logo does not appear and I cannot enter the bios setup.

Hi friends,

I'd like to ask you if my Toshiba Satellite C660-R12 is compatible with Windows XP? I'm not able to find out any information about it.

Thanks for your help

Answer:Satellite C660-12R - Compatible to Windows XP?

Hi wencman,

It?s important to know if you can get all drivers for your notebook model and Windows XP. This must be checked on official Toshiba page: > Support & Downloads > Download drivers

Satellite C660-12R belongs to PSC0QE series and as you can see all drivers for Windows XP are available so installing XP should be no problem. You can download official and pretested drivers! :)

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

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

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

Please can some one advise me on the best way out of this problem.

its really very painful and irritating to deal with this, as its been just 5 months since i bought this laptop.

Answer:Windows 7 issue on my Satellite C660-1F1

> however, after the repair process was completed, it showed an error message with steps to install Windows. i am getting this message now everytime i turn my laptop on!

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

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

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

So would recommend starting the HDD recover as described here.

I have recently had Microsoft Technical Assistance reinstall Win 7 Home Premium 64-bit.

I find it most offensive that Toshiba are unable to supply the Original Windows Activation code for the Laptop which was bought with the operating system pre-installed.

The Windows "Identification" label has long since perished.

No back up disk was supplied nor ever made, and there were no instructions nor inferences that it was imperative to create such.

It is not only preposterous but TOTALLY WRONG that one should be expected to pay again for something one has ALREADY PAID for!

Answer:Satellite C660 - Windows reactivation

This theme was discussed probably 1000 times on this forum and you can find many threads with very good and detailed explanation how it works.

Notebook is not delivered with restoration disc but original recovery image is saved on HDD and in user’s manuals document is clearly described how you can install recovery image using HDD recovery option but also how to create bootable recovery media (DVD or USB).

If you don't have it now all you can do is to order original recovery media or use own operating system but in this case Toshiba has nothing to do with product activation.

Product key that you got with your machine belongs to the OS version that you got with your notebook.

If you have more questions please be free to ask.

I upgraded windows 7 to 8.1 and it was very slow, the disk is always in 100 usage.
When I had the Windows 7 I never had the computer slow.

Answer:Satellite C660 with Windows 8.1 is very slow

Can you please explain to us what have you done exactly?
As far as I know your machine is supported for Win8 upgrade only.
Have you upgraded Win7 to Win8 and later to Win8.1 or you have made clean Win8 installation and later updated it to Win8.1?

When you used notebook with Win8 only have you noticed the same performance issue?

I have just purchased a Toshiba Satellite C660-195 with Windows 7 pre-installed.

This morning I have switched it on and it came up with a black box with x:windows\system32\drvload.exe in it. This box then disappeared and Startup Repair kicked in. It then told me Startup Repair cannot repair this computer automatically. The advice was to remove any device which had been recently attached to the laptop (such as a webcam or music device) but I have not installed any hardware or devices. I clicked finish and it shut down the laptop.

I switched it on again and the same thing happened (again and again!)

One forum suggests trying the following: Click the 'view advanced options for system recovery and support' link which asks me to choose my keyboard configuration but then when I do & click next it tells me "You must log in to access system recovery options" I am never given the option to log in!!

When accessing the Advanced Startup options using F8 I am still unable to solve this problem. The same thing (above) happens when I try to start in all Safe modes, Last Known Good Configuration (advanced), Debugging mode, Start Windows normally etc. I just don't understand it.

Upon searching other forums they have suggested holding down zero whilst switching on and then chosing Windows 7 to restore the laptop to its factory settings but the same thing happens - it just shows the black screen with x:windows\system32\drvload.exe then launched Star... Read more

Answer:Windows 7 will not boot on new Satellite C660-195


Sorry to hear you have this problem. Fact is that new notebooks are delivered with HDD recovery image only and not with recovery DVD. What you can try now is to install recovery image again using HDD recovery installation.
If this will work you will have ?out of box? state again.

Please do it following instructions on this document -

Welcome to the Forums.
I tried to extract the B50-30 Realtek Lan Driver for 64bit and it looks like there's a 32bit driver inside the setup package.
Can you try the following:
1. Download this Win7 32bit Realtek LAN driver and extract it (e.g., to the desktop)
2. Open Device Manager > Other devices > Ethernet Controller (right click > choose Update driver software) > Browse my computer for driver software then point it to the folder where you extracted the files in Step 1.
If successful, the Realtek LAN driver should be installed.
As for WLAN and the other missing drivers, can you follow this guide on how to get their hardware ID and post the results here.

I have problem with Toshiba Satellite C660-1CN PSC0QE.

Touchpad don't start with Windows 7 Home Premium.
All drivers are updated.
Bios - lastest.

After log on I need to click *twice* "FN+F9" and after this is OK until next reboot.

I tried:
several Synaptics drivers - no change.
reinstall Windows - no change.
Windows XP mini from Hiren - no working.
BIOS defaults - no change

After I installed "toshiba value added package" I can't turn on touchpad at all.

Answer:Satellite C660-1CN - touchpad do not start with Windows

To be honest I never heard about such issue. According notebook specification your notebook was delivered with Win7 home premium 64bit. With factory settings touchpad should be enabled after OS start.
As I can read you have reinstalled Windows. Have you reinstalled with original recovery image and tested it with factory settings?

Good health. On the laptop TOSHIBA C 660, replaced the hard drive and, as a fact, the OS flew down (Windows 7 SP1 HB x 64). Installed not licensed, there was no way out, on the Microsoft website, to download the image failure, the key from the laptop is not suitable. Not a licensed image, there was no desire to put, the assembly is an assembly, naturally installed such an operating system behaved badly, buggy. Done, and now the laptop does not work. In the service center installation of OS and drivers costs 3500 rbl. Offensively. So I'm looking for help on the forum. Please, kindly request help. Thank you.

I have just bought Toshiba Satellite C660-15r off someone but the problem is it has a password on start up.
This is fine because i was going to restore it any way but when i go in to windows restore you need a password to access it.

Is there a way to reinstall windows with out using windows restore. I really hope someone can help.

Answer:Satellite C660-15r - Restoring Windows 7 without password

My advice is follow:
When you buy used notebook install OS again to have clean preinstalled operating system. Use Toshiba recovery image, if possible.
Just one question: do you mean BIOS password or Windows login password?

If previous user has set a password you need it and without this password you cannot do anything.
If preinstalled OS is locked with login password you can install OS using recovery DVD and you don't need any password for it. I just hope previous owner has created this recovery DVD.
