Satellite L500 PSLS6A-00X013 - cannot install LAN and VGA drivers

Question: Satellite L500 PSLS6A-00X013 - cannot install LAN and VGA drivers

I have just replaced my hard drive and have installed Windows 7 Pro 32 bit on my L500 (PSLS6A-00X013),

I downloaded all the drivers from "My" and everything went well until I tried to install the Realtek Lan driver and the VGA driver all the other drivers work fine but it won't accept these two drivers.

The L500 is an Intel i3 4 gig ram any help would be appreciated.

Preferred Solution: Satellite L500 PSLS6A-00X013 - cannot install LAN and VGA drivers

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 L500 PSLS6A-00X013 - cannot install LAN and VGA drivers

_Regarding the display driver:_
What driver did you choose?
On the Toshiba driver page you can find two different drivers (AMD/ATI and Intel) and a comment: +(For Supported Model Only)+
This means that you should check the GPU and should use the right driver.

Your notebook is equipped with Intel graphic chip. So DON?T install AMD/ATI driver!

_Regarding LAN driver:_
What?s the problem exactly? Do you get any error messages?
Can you please provide more details.

What is it with Toshiba? The part number is clearly printed on the label on the underside of the laptop but the corresponding part number appears nowhere on the Toshiba support pages. This seems to occur with most Toshiba laptops that I have ever had anything to do with. Trying to find drivers, BIOS etc is a real PITA. I'm trying to find downloads for a Satellite L500 PSLS6A-00X013 but it doesn't show up any where. The serial number search is as useless as the part number search. Am I missing something?

I would like to ask for your help in the following problem:

I bought a Toshiba L500-14Z (PSLJDE-001007G3) and I would like to use it with windows XP.
I read that I must find the drivers manually for my hardware-s, but I am not sure...
Which models have the same Chipset, LAN, Soundcard, Videocard, WIFI?

I found only this information, and it was not enough for me:
(I mean it is not too specific about the given hardware parts...)

- T6500 Intel GM45 Express chipset
(Any other GM45 Chipset driver can be used, or should I search for one with the same processor?)
(Is the soundcard included in the chipset driver? If not... what sound driver should I use? - I didn't find any specification about the soundcard.)

- Intel WiFi Link 5100 network adapter
(Is it LAN + WIFI?)

- ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4570

I would really appreciate your help!

Answer:Satellite L500-14Z - Need XP drivers


As you said the notebook supports the Mobile Intel(R) GM45 Express Chipset.
The driver can be found here:

The Wlan card is Intel WiFi Link 5100AGN and the drivers are here:

The graphic card is a ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4570.
I think you will need to check some 3rd party pages for a compatible driver because I didn?t find anything on the Toshiba page?

hello every body

I really need drivers for Satellite L500-14F. I just bought it and I did format for it then it asked me for drivers update. The shop doesn't gave me any CD for it. Is it right for this model without drivers CD if it is why they made without drivers update?

Please answer me I'm waiting.

Answer:Satellite L500-14F - Where can I get drivers?


What OS have you installed?

The L500-14F belongs to the PSLJTE series so you can find all drivers on the Toshiba page. I?m wondering that you didn?t find them. > Support & Downloads > Download Drivers

And yes that?s normal that Satellite L500 doesn?t have a recovery DVD because you have to create this disk yourself. Therefore you have to start the Toshiba recovery disk creator on preinstalled OS but now it?s too late because you have already installed another OS. If you want a recovery disk you have to order a new one from Toshiba directly.

At the end I can only say you should read the user manual first if you buy something new. You shouldn?t use the notebook if you don?t know anything. ;)

I just instaled Win XP on my L500-13Z but I cant find any driver for my motherboard card. It seems that it is a Toshiba motherboard called KSWAA 1.00 but I didnt find any XP driver...
Hope I'll find some help here.

Thank you


Answer:Need drivers for Satellite L500-13Z with win XP


As far as I know newest notebook models will not be supported for WXP anymore. At some point WXP must be history and you should use newest hardware with newest OS.
Anyway, your notebook model has Mobile Intel GM45 Express Chipset and if you need WXP drivers you are on your own. Google is your friend! ;)

I just hope you have created recovery installations DVD before you installed WXP.

Apologies if this isn't the right forum. Not sure if this is purely for those laptops upgraded through the official Update programme.

But anyway, I have a Satellite L500-1ZR which isn't covered by the official programme so I went and updated my laptop directly through Microsoft. Everything works perfectly so far. However, Windows has installed its own drivers for my Radeon Mobility HD 4500 series and I would prefer to use the ATI drivers. As is normal, I can't install the drivers directly from the ATI website but when I try to install drivers through the Catalyst Install Manager that is on the Toshiba website, as I've always done in the past, it claims that it can't find any installable content.

Is there any way around this or is it a matter of waiting (and hoping) that Toshiba release Windows 8 drivers?

Here is a nice thread about Win 8 supported notebook series:

Check if your series is listed.

Windows 7 officially launched today and I was wondering if the drivers will be available for my L500 laptop any time soon.
The reason I ask is because I bought the Windows 7 Ultimate and want to implement it on my laptop.

I've been using Vista drivers but ofcourse some bugs occur every now and then. Especially the Toshiva Value Added Package / Flash Card Button support giving me a hard time.
There aren't any drivers for the ATI Mobility Radeon 4570 since it's a new chipset so I editted my own driver by rewriting the INI file inside the driver folder. Setting it to my hardware ID.

But anyway, when I bought the laptop it had some kind of folder with it stating that I can upgrade my laptop to Windows 7. Allthough no drivers are available yet.

I'm probably asking the obvious but is there a date set for the drivers to be available ?

I'm sorry if this post has been answered elsewhere. I didn't manage to find an answer.

Thanks in advance.

Answer:Satellite L500-128 and Windows 7 drivers

Your laptop model will definitely be supported for Win7 and I am pretty sure drivers, tools and utilities will be available soon.
I don't believe anyone here can say for sure when exactly but I think next days they should be available for download.

My Satellite Pro L500 is playing up!. Device Manager tells me I have problems (hence I write on a different laptop).

I will list what the problems are, and hopefully someone can tell me which drivers I might need.

a) Realtek PTL 8101 Family PCI-E Fast Ethernet NIC (DDIS60). It asks for installation disc. I did not get one with the laptop, I only have a Restore Disk I made. Will that be okay?
b) SM Buscontroller (code 28) No Driver
c) Network Controller (code 1) Not configured correctly.

These words are just as they appear when I click the yellow triangle.
Can anybody help me sort the problem?

Answer:Missing drivers for my Satellite Pro L500

All missing drivers you can download from Toshiba download page -
Please check it and install all missing drivers. If you still need some help you are welcome.

Restore disc cannot be used because using this disc you can reinstall whole OS only. It is not possible to use it for certain drivers installation.

I have a little bit searched using Google and this could be the card reader of your notebook. All drivers you can download here: > Support & Downloads > Download Drivers

I just bought this laptop, and if I knew that it does not support XP, that it has only drivers for Vista I doubt, better yet I know that I would not take Toshiba.

There's no warning thas says "Vista only" or something similar, at least not in my contry and it was unpacked.

The problem is that I have only XP and I do not like VIsta at all, so is there any drivers for XP?

I couldn't find any drivers for XP, there is no drivers even for Win7, only for Vista.


Answer:Satellite L500-12P - Where can I get Windows XP drivers?


In my opinion Windows XP is pretty old OS and is the past. Vista is the future and in few days it will be Windows 7.

So you should be happy if your notebook runs properly with preinstalled Vista. The notebook is fast enough for this OS and with new SP2 it runs faster as without SP. Furthermore you can switch to classic mode and then it looks like XP.
Have you check this?

If you really want XP you have to collect drivers yourself on external websites, like Intel, Realtek and so far.

I cannot test it now because I first want to ensure that it will work with win xp, after I wanted to install it..

Answer:Satellite L500-164 Drivers for Windows XP?


The Satellite L500 doesn?t support Windows XP, it supports only Vista 32bit and Vista 64bit. Windows XP is pretty old OS, it? the past. Now it?s Windows Vista or Windows 7.

If you want to install XP you have to collect the drivers by yourself on external websites, like Intel, Realtek and so far.

But to be honest be happy with preinstalled OS. All new notebooks are fast enough for Vista. ;)

Indeed, there are only Win 7 drivers.

But you can check the Toshiba European driver page.

There you will find different L500 models and there are some Win XP drivers which could work in connection with you L500 series.

Hello everyone!

I just purchased a Sat Pro L500-196 which comes with Windows7 installed.

However for the use of older software which I need for my work, I want to install the Windows XP from my old laptop.
I want to setup a dual-boot environment so I can use Win7 for most of the time but be able to boot into XP whenever I need to.

The support page for this model lists 96 drivers for WinXP for this modell.
Which of these drivers do I really need?
And are there any instructions in which order install them? Or can I download/order a cd (or cd-image) with all drivers for WinXP

As far as i know, after installing WinXP on a second partition, I need a Windows7 installation-DVD to repair the boot manager.
Otherwise only WinXP sill start.
My laptop came without such a DVD, there is just a recovery partition.
Is it possible to use the recovery-system to make Win7 start again or do I really need a Win7 DVD?

Thanks in advance,
Juergen from Germany

Answer:Re: Satellite Pro L500-196: Which drivers for Windows XP

>The support page for this model lists 96 drivers for WinXP for this modell.
>Which of these drivers do I really need?
There is no special installation order needed?
But I would start with common drivers like:
Display driver, LAN driver, Wlan driver, Modem driver, Card Reader Controller, touchpad driver, etc?.

The Controls driver should be installed before Controls (utility)?.
Try it simply?.

>As far as i know, after installing WinXP on a second partition, I need a Windows7 installation-DVD to repair the boot manager.
This is right?. I had the same issue with Vista and had to boot Vista DVD in order to repair the Vista boot manager

>Is it possible to use the recovery-system to make Win7 start again or do I really need a Win7 DVD?
No because it?s not the same.
The recovery image will format the HDD and partitions and will erase the installed Win XP.

The Win XP drivers for this notebook model are not released.

Many Toshiba notebooks are equipped with the same devices? therefore another Win XO drivers should run in different notebook models?

I have found and installed all drivers I need for this laptop using Windows XP. My problem is that I can only activate Wireless on this laptop by pushin FN+F8 key, I have installed the Realtek Wireless drivers and they are installed fine, but I can't get Wireless to work because of the FN keys. When I push the FN+F8 key, a blue led should turn on next to the volume controller, but it doesn't...

I've searched for the Hotkey Utility in the Toshiba India site, I downloaded and tryed it but I get the error "This software utility does not support this system", the Common Modules gives me the same error too.

I've tryed installing other Hotkey Utility driver for another laptop, and it doesn't give me that error, but it doesn't work either... I actually leaves my laptop freezing a second, every 5 seconds... and the FN keys still don't work.

Anyone know where I can find a working Hotkey Utility for my laptop using XP?

Or maybe is there a way to activate Wireless without the FN keys? I don't need the other keys... I just want a way to activate Wireless.

Answer:Satellite L500 - Can't find drivers for FN keys for Windows XP!


That?s very strange buddy because the point is that XP is the past and newer notebooks doesn?t support this OS.

What you can do is to download the utilities for another Satellite L notebook, e. g. Satellite L300. This supports Windows XP and maybe the tools from that notebook are working on yours.
Check this!!

In worst case you have to live with this issue or you upgrade to Windows Vista. That?s all what you can do.

if you want to install Xp on your computer, you need to change Sata Controller in Bios ,,Compatible,, otherwise you will meet a blue screen during installation. It's because of AHCI drivers Then after installation, you can download and install Storage Manager and return AHCi mode in Bios. You can also integrate them into Windows disk.

Answer:Satellite Pro L500-1W4 - Cannot install Win 7 Pro after changing the HDD

As far as I know there is no some kind of limitation and if there is no problem with original recovery disc for Win7 you should be able to install it on any HDD that you use with your machine.
I have upgraded HDD to SSD on my machine and recovery image installation worked without any problem.

To be honest it is not easy to say what is wrong there but this Win7 installation disc is somehow suspect for me. I don't know which notebook model do you have exactly but somehow I feel you didn?t get original Win7 disc. Best evidence is WXP recovery disc. The prinziple with Win7 is the same and it must works.

When you use this disc you should have menu as described on

Answer:How to install external speakers on Satellite L500?

It will be interesting which speakers do you have exactly.
Anyway, exact notebook specification is not known to me but as far as I know you can connect usual PC speakers (2 speakers + 1 subwoofer) using audio out port.

Please let us know which speakers do you have exactly.

One more thing: for digital audio output notebook must have SPDIF port with optical port.

I can't install the drivers for my graphic card on my computer. It's a satellite L500-1C7.
You can see her configuration here :
fabricant : Intel
model: Mobile Intel GMA 4500M

On the intel's website, they said to download the drivers on toshiba's website but here the drivers doesn't install.
During installation a message saying:

"Ce syst?me ne poss?de pas la configuration minimale requise pour l?installation du logiciel. Le programme d?installation va s?arr?ter."

I could traduct it by "the system doesn't have the minimal configuration requiered for the program's installation. The installaion program is going to stop.
I've download this drivers :
Chip Set Utility
Intel Windows 7 - 64 Bit World Wide

I'm sure this is the good drivers, so what could i do in order to install this drivers what i need?

Sorry for my bad english !

Answer:Satellite L500-1C7 Cannot install Intel graphic driver

Generally speaking it is always recommended to use Toshiba drivers only. Toshiba drivers are tested and adapted to work with graphic card placed in notebook. There is also ?mechanism? to protect graphic card from overheating and damaging.

If you check this forum you will find many users with same problem. graphic card manufacturers write on own download pages that for mobile PCs it is strictly recommended to use drivers from notebook manufacturer.

I believe you think it is good driver but do you also think that Toshiba?s driver is not good or not good enough?

had complete hard disk failure, no recovery cd's had been created, reloaded windows 7, looked up and downloaded drivers from Toshiba, BUT there are only two video drivers listed, amd and Intel both marked "for supported model only" its an Intel machine so I tried the Intel driver but it doesn?t install, it just closes, which I gather if the matching hardware is not found is the default action for these drivers.

However I am stuck with "standard VGA graphics Adapter" all the other drivers loaded perfectly, ( I installed the Intel chipset driver first and rebooted, so it should be ok but it?s not)

Any ideas?

Are you sure that the printer software which you have installed on both notebooks (with Win 7 and Vista) is Win 7/Vista compatible and supported?

I need a new keyboard for my L500 and found out, that the keyboad of the P200 (and some other models) seems to be the same (105 keys, num pad, 2 win keys). Are those keyboards 100% compatible or do they just look the same?

Answer:Satellite L500 and Satellite P200 - compatible keyboards?


In my opinion this question is for Toshiba service and not for user-to-user forum.

Anyway I think that both keyboards are not the same and you should order 100% identical keyboard designed for your notebook model.

Question is: why do you look for keyboards for old notebook models if you can order new one for L500.

However, when I launch the installer, it decompresses, telling me it will launch after wards, but then the window closes and nothing further happens.

If I go in the folder where the installer was decompressed and launch tinstall.exe, nothing happens. If I launch SMIPlayerSetup.exe, it tells me "Can not find our player in your system. Installation aborted.".

What's happening?

Answer:Can't install any drivers on Satellite L855-10P


Tempro is a tool which notify you about new uploaded drivers.
This isn?t a ?invitation? to update the driver. Its just an info that a new version is available.

Furthermore if download does not functions properly via Tempro, I recommend visit the Toshiba EU driver page and to download the driver from the page directly.

As far as I know Toshiba does not recommend using and installing the 3rd party graphic drivers? On the Toshiba driver page you will find the graphic driver which is compatible and which should be used.

Anyway, the error message: ?Can't find supported hardware? means that the driver which you want to install cannot find the supported graphic chip?

Answer:Satellite L30 PSL33E: How to install the XP drivers!

Hi Anthony

First of all I would like to provide answer for these questions:

> Can I purchase a restore CD for XP with this model or how can I build one?
No, this PSL33E was delivered only with Vista and the Toshiba XP image does not exists for this L30 unit

> I have product recovery disks XP for satellite pro PSM55E but when I tried this above faults occurred.
This is nothing unusual. The Toshiba recovery CD designed for other notebook series will not run on the L30!!!
You have to use only recovery CD designed especially for PSL33E!!!

In my opinion all issues which appear on the notebook are related to the missing or wrong drivers!!!
As you said all XP drivers are available on the Toshiba European page and should be installed in the order mentioned in the installation instruction!!!
All the QFEs are simply Microsoft fixes and this updates can be installed automatically using the Microsoft update page.

Check this:

Note; Sometimes you have to reboot the notebook several times and have to run this update to install all available patches!!!

Answer:Satellite L300D - How to install Win 7 drivers?

Hi newtoallthis,

Before you start with Windows 7 installation, download all drivers from official Toshiba website and check if all drivers available. I don?t know what notebook you have exactly and if you install Windows 7 32bit or 64bit but you can check this yourself: > Support & Downloads > Download Drivers

If you have found all drivers you can start with Windows 7 installation. After this install all drivers. Usually the installation order is not so important but a friend of installed Winodws 7 on L300 (little bit other model) and used this installation order:

-Windows 7
-Chipset driver
-Display driver
-Sound driver
-LAN driver
-WLAN driver
-Modem driver
-Value Added Package
-Flash Cards Support Utility

Depending on your model the order and amount of drivers is a little bit different. ;)

So? as said install WinRAR, download the Toshiba driver and unpack the driver folder!
Then you will get a new folder with the driver inside.

On the Toshiba website I can?t find the display driver package for XP but maybe you find a driver for another notebook model with the same chipset that also works on your Satellite U405D, for example A305D or A300D from the European website.

Answer:Satellite L650 - OS recommendation and can't install drivers


> I tried to instal windows 7 seveeral times ... (different x64 editions) without succes, i managed to install a clean windows 64 edition
Where is the difference between Windows 7 64bit and Windows 64 edition? In my opinion it?s the same?

Anyway, best OS recommendation is preinstalled Windows version in my opinion because it?s configured from Toshiba with all drivers and tools that you need. Your notebook is ready to use and no further installations are necessary.

Generally speaking for FN keys you need Toshiba Value Added package from Toshiba website.

Good evening,

I would like to know if there's any possibility to give me any link with SATA Drivers for the laptop i specified on the Topic's subject.

I ask for this because i would like to change from Windows XP MCE, to Windows XP Profissional SP2, and to do this i want to format the hard drive and than install the OS.

Btw, some days before, i checked my laptop's CPU temperature, and when it is 90% Load it reaches temperatures like 90-100?C !
It this normal, so high temperatures? I checked with CoreTemp, i heard that it's a good software to use with Core2Duo processors..

I'll wait for news,
Best Regards.

Answer:Satellite P100-400: Need SATA drivers to install the Win XP


As far as I know you do not need any SATA drivers. Put installations CD in your notebook and start OS installation. Using installations CD you can format the whole HDD and create own partitions. After finishing download and install drivers, tools and utilities from Toshiba support page. That?s all!

About CPU temperature I can not tell you much but if the notebook works well you should not be worried about it. Just be sure the notebook is placed properly on the desk and the cooling vents are free.

Can you guide me please on solving this issue?

Thank you so much!

Answer:How to install Bluethooth drivers on Windows 8 - Satellite S50-A-10P

[Enable Bluetooth functionality after a clean installation of Windows 8|]

If a clean installation of Windows 8 has been performed, Bluetooth is not present and does not work on your notebook. It is necessary to install two driver components manually to activate the Bluetooth functionality.
- Toshiba System Driver
- If your notebook is equipped with an Atheros or Realtek WLAN card with Bluetooth, you have to download the Atheros or Realtek Bluetooth Filter Driver
- If your notebook is equipped with an INTEL WLAN card with Bluetooth, you don't need to download any filter driver

May I ask what drivers did you try to install?
Are you speaking about the XP drivers?

Listen dude? The Toshiba driver page provides some useful documents. First of all you should take a look into the Toshiba installation instruction. This txt file describes the whole way how the drivers must be installed!! Please follow the guide lines?

Secondly you have noticed the Microsoft Windows XP SP2 Update information on the page;
According to this page some applications must be updated after the SP2 was installed.

Last but not least all the Microsoft QFEs released on the page are necessary and need to get the operating system working!!!

Follow the guidelines!!

Hi all

I have a L300 that I have downgraded to XP. It is running with the SATA controller in compatibility mode and as is reported here a lot, it is slow.

I read about needing the intel drivers for it and so I downloaded them and ran them and got an error "your computer does not meet the minimum requirements"

Tried it in safe mode as well and got the same error.

Now I could try using nlite and I have used it before, but the file I have is an executable and not a inf and associated files for a driver so i do not know how to add it to nlite. I would prefer not to re-load again if possible.

So the simple question is how do I install the AHCI SATA drivers so i dont have to run in compatibility mode.



Answer:Re: Satellite L300 - How to install SATA drivers?


I think you should use the forum search. You will find enough threads how to install the SATA drivers?

I have Satellite A500-13F with ATI Radeon HD 4650 graphic card.
Can I install drivers from ATI downloaded from their site? I'm asking because theres a note on the downloading page saying the folowing:

*The following notebooks are not supported in this release:*
*Toshiba notebooks (please check with your notebook OEM for driver support for these notebooks)*

What does this mean? Should I install these drivers, will they work?

Thank you

Answer:Satellite A500-13F: Can I install drivers from ATI page?


You always should download the drivers from the Toshiba driver page because they are pretested. Talking about the graphic card driver, it 's modified and has the overheating protection. So, I don't advice you to use original ATI drivers. You can use them but at your own risk.

Answer:Satellite A300D-213 - Can I install new display drivers?


No, you can?t install this display driver from AMD because it doesn?t support mobile graphic cards, it?s only for desktop cards.

I have problems with installation of sound driver on my Satellite X205 sli1. I have tried to install drivers from realtek website, but they doesen't work. Next I have tried to install fixes "kb835221" "kb88811" and than drivers but still nothing.

On toshiba website I can't find those drivers. I checked in everest my audio device is - Realtek ALC268 @ Intel 82801HBM ICH8M - High Definition Audio Controller PCI.

Please help me !!!!!

Answer:Satellite X205 - Can't install sound drivers

Hi buddy,

In my opinion the easiest way is installing Service Pack 3 for Windows XP. It contains the Hotfixes for high definition sound cards and other important security fixes. You can download it on the Microsoft website.

But SP3 or Hotfixes must be installed *firstly* and then the sound driver. Otherwise it will not work.

So my recommendations are uninstalling the sound driver and clean your system using freeware tool CCleaner. Restart your notebook and make sure and install SP3 if it?s not done. After this install the newest driver from the Realtek website.

Check this!!!

I want to know if I could install windows Vista ultimate edition, and where can I find the appropiate drivers of devices for Windows Vista,


Answer:Satellite A60: Can I install Vista and where to find drivers


Of course you can install the Vista on your notebook. I have installed the Vista on my old A50 and it works. Ok, I?m not able to use the additional features like Aero for example but the OS runs.

The driver situation is a little bit tricky? simply said, there are no Vista drivers published? I have found some singles Vista drivers on some device manufacturer?s sites but at this time there are no Toshiba drivers for this notebook.

PS: on the Toshiba Canada website I have found single drivers for some newer Toshiba notebook:

I've just bought a Satellite A350 and as the Adobe Master Collection doesn't install properly on Windows Vista I would like to install Windows XP on the notebook.
Allas, the drivers on this site for the A350 are only for Vista?! Can't I install XP on it at all, and if I can, where do I find the necessary drivers?

Thanks for the help!


Answer:Can I install Win XP on a Satellite A350 & where to find drivers?

Of course you can install the Win XP on this notebook.
But drivers for Win XP are not available for this notebook series and in such case you will have to search for the drivers at your own hand.

Many notebook series use the same devices and therefore the drivers should run too.
I recommend checking some other notebook series like Satellite A300 or another and to try the XP drivers released for these models.

Hi everyone!

I need your help... Here's my story.

There was a time when I need to reformat the Sat L100 laptop and an XP cd is used instead of the recovery disc since, I'm too dense to know about it.
When I've found out about the use of the recovery disc, I've tried to boot from it, and I've already seen the menu which gives me the chance to restore the laptop's configuration, but I did not move forward since I really do not need to reformat way back then.

After some time, (again) I need to reformat but the problem is, the installation from the recovery disc is asking for toshiba raid drivers.
What has happened?????? and what should I do?

I've read some forums and they are suggesting to change the SATA mode in the BIOS options, but I cannot find it in the laptop, thou I'm seeing it in other toshiba laptop. How can I change the SATA mode in the L100 laptop?

I've also read that I raid drivers must be copied in a floppy disk, wherein I dont have an external floppy drive.
Is there a way that I can install it without pressing F6 or something, i.e. on Windows desktop? Or can I save it on USB flash drive?


Answer:Satellite L100 - Need SATA drivers to install the Win XP


First of all the SATA mode option is not available in the BIOS of L100 so you could not change this to compatible mode.

Secondly you don?t need the floppy disk drive to install the SATA drivers.
If you would read more threads here you would find out that you could also use the software called nLite which would help you to include the SATA drivers into the Win XP.
This application creates the new Win XP with SATA drivers and you could use this CD to reinstall the windows XP.

I wonder why the Intel Storage Manger has not been placed on the Toshiba European driver page in the driver download L100 area? however? as mentioned the Intel Matrix Storage Manger contains the SATA drivers and you need this package.

You can search in other notebook series for such the Intel Storage Manger or you will search on Intel page and would download it.
Then as I?ve mentioned use the nLite and include the SATA drivers.

More details about nLite you will find on the nLite page:

I have a laptop U400-138, with Win Vista. I installed XP prof. and downloaded the drivers from the Toshiba Website. I tried to install the Display driver but always give me that this driver can't be installed in this PC.

Please anyone can help or advise if anything is wrong.


Answer:Satellite U400-138 - Can't install display drivers on XP


The Satellite U400 belongs to the PSU44E series and therefore you can find all drivers on the Toshiba website: > Support & Downloads > Download Drivers

If you can?t install the driver with the setup.exe file you should try to install it manually. Go in device manager and select the graphic card. Then choose ?update driver? and use the advanced installation routine to choose the driver by yourself.
