Satellite L500-1XD - cannot find an update for PC health monitor

Question: Satellite L500-1XD - cannot find an update for PC health monitor

This TBS advises updates to PC health monitor and HDD/SDD alert.

HDD/SDD alert has a published update in the relevant downloads section but I cannot find an update for PC health monitor.

Any one got any bright ideas ?

Otherwise this seems quite a balanced system.

Preferred Solution: Satellite L500-1XD - cannot find an update for PC health monitor

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.)

If you couldn't find it on driver page, it means isn't available yet. I don't know why you were asked to update it but if PC health monitor runs well don't need to update. I don't think you will find something more in new version :)

today updated to win 8.1 from a one year old windows 8, everything went fine
Then I followed Toshiba recommendations for updating the tools but despite doing exactly as explained the flash cards(and the functions buttons) are not functioning, they worked perfectly in win 8!

_The only utility that fails to update is PC health monitor,_ the version installed is and the one from support site for win 8.1 is, when trying to install it fails with error message "not support"

When trying to open the installed health monitor there is also an error message "can`t get the bios type".

This is strange and every other utility recognizes the latest bios version 6.70 an the laptop`s details an serial
I tried all I could think about, installed flash card support tool from win 8, enabling and disabling in the bios, even installed VAP for win 8 but no change

Any help would be highly appreciated
Latest system driver and other tools are installed

Thanks in advance

I bought a C50D a couple of days ago and noticed that when I ran the PC Health Monitor it showed the Battery Health as Poor. I've tried a couple of full charge/discharge cycles and it doesn't seem to have improved the situation.

Is this something that is likely to correct itself over the next few charge cycles or might I have a duff battery - or is the Health Monitor not too good at assessing battery charge.


Answer:Satellite C50D - PC Health Monitor show Battery health as poor

New batteries need to be charged and discharged few times in the row to reach the best performance.

I?m not quite sure how many times you have to repeat this procedure but I recommend you to monitor the battery working time.

Of course battery working time depends on the notebook usage but you should be able to notice the improvement.

I have an A660-17T which I've had since November 2010, I've used it a fair amount but not always on battery, I'd estimate that the battery has between 10 and 20 charge/discharge cycles on it.

I updated the BIOS to v1.80 when I first got the laptop, everything seemed to be fine. Recently, within the last 2-3 weeks the health monitor software is reporting that the battery is in poor health, showing that the capacity is reduced to 40% of the original capacity. I don't believe this as when I do run on battery I get several hours usage.

I have today updated to BIOS v1.90, although there is no changelog that I can find, it just says "improved features" or similar.

Is this really a failing battery, or is it somehow that the software is incorrectly reading the value of capacity from the battery pack due to a change in Windows or some other change in the system? I can't see how a battery can run for the same amount of time it always did and actually have a fault.

Any thoughts? Should I go back to the retailer and report this as a fault, or is it worth waiting to see if a future OS or driver update fixes this?

Thoughts welcome!

Answer:Satellite A660-17T - PC Health Monitor shows problem with battery health


> I don't believe this as when I do run on battery I get several hours usage.
That means you have the same battery remaining time as before you saw the error message from PC health monitor?!

In this case it seems that the battery is ok and maybe it?s just wrong information from the Toshiba tool. So I would recommend reinstalling PC Health Monitor that you can download from official Toshiba website: > Support & Downloads

Already after a little more than two months after purchasing this laptop, the TOSHIBA PC Health Monitor is indicating that my battery health is ''poor'' (about 1/4 health left!) and I am wondering what possibilities there are that this is a hardware defect, and whether I can get a replacement battery, and where.

Thank you in advance.

Answer:Satellite L850-1FG: PC Health Monitor indicates poor battery health


I?m not sure if its really a battery problem / fault.
Maybe the battery should be calibrated several times in the row?

First of all the battery should be fully discharged? disable the automatic stand by and hibernation mode if the battery charge level would be low.
The battery should be fully empty. Then connect AC adaptor and charge it until the battery indicator would switch to blue (or green).
Then disconnect the AC adaptor and start the discharging process again?
Repeat this 3, 4 times and then check the battery health again.

I have the range of Toshiba Utilities installed including PC Health Monitor.
Every day my Event Viewer and Reliability Monitor records errors for TPCHSrv.exe and states it has stopped working. These are the only errors I get.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled but the errors remain every day and always occur shortly after startup. I had to reinstall W10 and thought that would sort the problem out but no!

I cannot disable on startup because all the Toshiba apps are grouped together at start up.

Whilst it is not causing me problems it is untidy and cluttering up error records.

Is there a fix or a way of individually disabling this on startup?

Answer:Satellite L500 with XP - Where to find display driver


You are right. The Toshiba European driver page does not provide any Win XP drivers for this notebook yet.

But I think you should not worry? many notebooks are equipped with the same GPU chip.
I recommend checking the previous Toshiba notebooks series and trying to install such driver.

In worst case you will have to google a little bit for a Win XP ATI mobility Radeon HD 4500 driver.

If you will find such driver then you could install it in device manger using the Advanced installation procedure. This will help you to point to the driver files which you have downloaded and stored on the HDD. This installation works nearly everytime?

Recently I was successful in updated the Health Monitor (which ironically the Heath Monitor recommended).

An error indicated that there was "an older version installed", and I was advised to remove it first. I did this, not have no path to be automatically advised of driver and other upgrades, including the health Monitor.

It seems the Health Monitor did not save the download file - it's not in Downloads. Does it save some other place? It did not prompt me, so the location is hard-coded, wherever it is.

I only wanted to do this because a previous Health Monitor driver upgrade blew away my touchpad driver.

OK ... you'd think I would be able to download new drivers manually, right? Alas no. My part number does not seem to be acceptable to the downloads selector on Toshiba AU selector window, and likewise there is no U model above U500 in the dropdown list of models.

So many annoyances here!

Why you want to install Eco Utility if it?s available for your notebook? I have checked the Toshiba driver download page and Eco Utility is only available for A350 PSALWE series and not for yours that is PSAL6E model.

Anyway, you can install PC Wizard 2009 for example. It shows you some informations like the temperature, voltages and so far. Test it if you will be satisfied with this program and give us a feedback! ;)

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.

Thanks for your time

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.

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

My laptop is a Satellite L510 purchased November 2009
Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 32 Bit
BIOS Version/Date: INSYDE 1.30, 5/8/2009

2. PC Health Monitor (ver: TC00148300O

Value Added Package: Ver: 1.2.25 (TC00214700E)

For a couple of weeks shutting down would take a bit longer than it used to and last weekend it just shut down even though the battery was fully charged.

I had a bit of a job getting it back but I finally did, I came to the conclusion though the hard drive was failing.

I then tried to open PC Health Monitor but this error appeared ?Can't get the bios type?, and obviously wouldn?t open. I uninstalled PCHM from Programs and Features and then ran TC00148300O.exe from

If you have replaced HDD I recommend you to install original recovery image and start to use your machine with factory settings. After doing this everything will be OK again. Install important Windows updates, your important software and I think everything will be OK again.

Software related issues can be sometimes very complicated. All you can try to do is to remove preinstalled application, restart machine and try to install it again.

About BIOS I can just say that you should not change anything.

One more thing: I don?t know how important ReelTime and PC Health Monitor are for you but I have removed both applications from my system. In my opinion there is no much help from both of them but they using up CPU for unnecessary processes.

Answer:PC Health Monitor and Battery wear on Satellite U940

> At the moment my battery wear is at 50% of full capcacity according to BatteryBar

The battery health shows you the battery health status and not the battery charging status.

> I can only get about 1.5 to 2 hours of life out of my laptop
The battery working time depends on notebook usage. What does this mean?
Well, running heavy performance software (games, video editing software, etc?), using bright display brightness or playing DVD movie would discharge the battery quickly.

1.5 - 2h of battery working time is not bad. But of course; sooner or later every battery needs to be replaced. It?s just a matter of time.

Last week I bought a brand new L50t-A-145 running Windows 8.1. Beautiful machine and on the face of it everything works perfectly.

However when activating the PC Health Monitor it recorded the battery as being in only "fair" condition ... which means it has "some capacity loss but it will meet the requirements of most usages". For a brand new machine this is simply not good enough ... I have a P845t which is over a year old which has never recorded the battery condition as in anything other than "good" condition.

I've done a number of things (which, I hasten to add, I never had to bother with on the P845t or indeed any other Toshiba laptop) ... (1) I have charged the battery fully and let it discharge to sub 10% at least 6 or 7 times; (2) I have uninstalled PC Health Monitor and downloaded the latest version from the Toshiba website and reinstalled it; (3) I have completely reset the computer. All to no avail ... the battery condition still shows as only "fair".

The reason I have checked out a number of options is that to me it seems there is nothing wrong with the battery ... it doesn't seem to take longer than normal to charge and I appear to get good use of the machine as it discharges ... my gut tells me there is nothing wrong with the battery.

However, unlike previous laptops, this one comes with the battery sealed in (one wonders who the nutter was who thought of that or has it been done to overcome airport security... Read more

So i updated my F60 BIOS from 2.00 today, to 2.10

Before the update Toshiba PC health monitor said the fan would spin at around 9% at idle.

Now at idle the monitor says it is at 50%.

Thing is i can tell by listening to the fan that it isnt spining any more at idle than it did before the update?

Any Ideas Toshiba????????

I just can tell you, if the fan doesn't make a big noise and cool the system down, you shouldn't be worry.

I've been re-organising my nephew's laptop (part number Satellite L500-19X PSLS0E-00F01DEN), tidying files etc, applying outstanding updates etc and foolishly agreed to the Toshiba's utility offer to upgrade the BIOS which totally froze part way thru (at step 11 of 37 IIRC).

I've now got nothing but a black screen.

As I do have some IT skills, I've looked around and was going to go down the WINCRIS.EXE route creating a bootable USB drive to try and recover that way.

However, the latest BIOS for this laptop seems to be an .exe file, not a zip file from which I could extract the boot rom.

Guess I still have the option of taking the drive out of the laptop to try and recover the backup bios file the update utility said it saved to another machine anduse that to try to regress that way, but I would appreciate any advice - or indeed a bootable image - anyone could offer.

Guess I'm hoping for too much to think Toshiba themselves could supply such an image...


Answer:BIOS update bricked Satellite L500-19X

>However, the latest BIOS for this laptop seems to be an .exe file, not a zip file from which I could extract the boot rom.

The exe file isn?t ?real? exe file but it?s a package.
You can extract this exe clicking right and choosing ?Extract here??

I use WinRAR to extract the packages. Also WinZip or 7Zip should work.

But to be honest I?m not quite sure if you would be able to fix this issue.
From my knowledge an BIOS crisis disk would be needed to reflash the EPROM module and usually this can be done by Toshiba authorized service provider

However, please keep us up to date.

Thanks for your help.

Answer:Satellite L500-1Q9 - Update for display driver


Is it really a display driver issue that you need a new version? If you need a newer display driver for games you should update the DirectX version first and have a look if the game is compatible to your graphic card.

If you can?t find a newer display driver for Satellite L500 check other notebook specifications. Other models like Satellite L650 also have an AMD graphic card and there you should find a newer version. :)

The Bios update takes several minutes to complete. it looks like that the Bios failure process goes wrong. If you turn it off, you will get a blank screen. I even don't know what to advise you. You can wait but I don't think it finishes well.

The bad thing is that you have to go to ASp (service center) and ask them to reflash for money. Unfortunately, there is no warranty for Bios failure

There is no relation between Bios and hard drive. They will reflash your Bios, all data on you hard drive will be untouched. But you should know that Bios reflash is not free procedure, you will have to pay.

It is just a small thing, but my last Toshiba laptop has the option of booting from USB. I could boot a Linux, and Windows from a USB flash drive, and this was great. So here is my question. Is there a way to boot from USB without a BIOS update?

Well, I know the answer is probably no, so I will ask the next question. Thinking that there is a update for my BIOS, I visited the website, and found out that the only update avaliable is the one I currently have. Next I went to the BIOS makers (Pheonix) website, that directed me to, which scanned my computer to check for updates. It claims that that is a new BIOS update avaliable, but I have to sign up and PAY for a yearly subscription to just get to see what the version number of this update is. So my question is, where is this "update" and does it support booting from USB?


Answer:Satellite L500 (PSLS9A-01U012) - BIOS update better than 1.6?

Hi Hambo,

The point is that not all notebooks support booting from USB device and if it?s possible is described in your user manual.
As far as I know it?s only possible to boot from USB floppy drive on Satellite L500 but not from USB stick?

Furthermore BIOS update does only fix bugs and not add new features so I don?t see a reason for an update.
But if you make a BIOS update anytime, you should download it form Toshiba website. This is the only website there you can get a compatible BIOS.

Good morning everybody!
I have recently performed a factory default installation on the notebook object of this thread followed by Windows 7 update.
I had some problem in reinstalling all the drivers, but I solved it.

Because I always am a lucky guy , the installation of the AHCI driver has brought another undesired issue.

I have a problem in searching and installing Windows updates through, obviously, Windows Update (WU).
When I try to perform an update research, I get this error:? Windows Update cannot currently check for updates, because the service is not running...?.

The first thing I did was to check if WU service was running looking into the service ?tab? of control panel.
Nothing was changed accidentally and in fact the WU service was turned on as always.

The second step, suggested by some tutorials on the web, concerned into stopping the Windows Update service, deleting the ?SoftwareDistribution? folder and turning on another time the Windows Update service. This procedure did not solve the issue.

After many others attempts, I found the solution reading a thread in an Italian forum.

Briefly, the post explains that the issue (more evident on just formatted machines) is caused by an incompatibility of Intel Matrix Storage Manager with some processes of Windows Update. This causes that error appearing without any apparent reason.

The solution is uninstalling the Intel Matrix Storage Manager software and installing a newer one, for example this suggested by... Read more

I have a Satellite Pro A100-02Y.

I'd like to run an external monitor but have no idea how big a monitor the graphics drivers will deal with. How can I find out?

Thanks for any help.

Answer:How to find out max external monitor resolution on Satellite Pro A100-02Y


You have to keep one fact in mind that the available screen resolution depends on the graphic card and on the graphic card driver.
If I'm not mistaken, you can find the information about the max graphic card resolution somewhere in the user manual?.

But note; if the graphic card driver does not support you favorite resolution then you will be not able to use and to choose it!!!

In the graphic card properties you can find the available screen resolutions which are supported by GPU driver.
Usually these resolutions could be used on the external monitor but only if the external monitor can handle it.

Answer:Satellite M30: Cannot find driver to run external monitor on 1680 X 1050


You are not able to choose the 1680 x 1050 as you favorite resolution on the external display because the driver does not support this.
I?m not sure which driver could support this resolution but you will be not able to install the original nVidia drivers from the NVida page! This is clear?

Instead of the driver installation from the NVIDIA site you could test the driver from the site. Probably this is a key?

If the omega drivers don?t function, I assume you will be not able to run the 1680 x 1050 on external monitor.

> Video does not work on the monitor
You have to switch firstly to the external monitor with FN+F5 and then start the dvd player application like WinDVD

It seems the Satellite A30 series is a one of series which was delivered with the ?no Vista support? BIOS.
I think it should be possible to install Vista after a the BIOS update.

But know you will ask for the new BIOS version. Am I right? ;)

Well, on the Toshiba BIOS page you should find different BIOS versions.
It?s very important that you will check the ?more info? option before you will start the BIOS update. There you should find information about the BIOS compatibility (not every version is compatible with every unit).

But as you know the Vista is not official on the market. As far as I can remember it should be possible to buy the OS in January 2007.
I think Toshiba will offer a new version of ?Vista BIOS? in the next time. I hope so ;)

I think the option SATA mode has been set to AHCI and therefore the Windows XP cannot find the HDD.
This is because of the SATA controller.
You can set the SATA mode from AHCI mode to compatible mode and this will allows you to install the Win XP on the notebook without the usage of SATA drivers.

So, you?ve got two options if you want to install Win XP:

AHCI mode -> but you have to include SATA drivers
Compatible mode -> Win XP installation possible without the SATA drivers

Looking for something with a fairly specific function that I think SHOULD be common, but all my searches just return WAY too much unrelated or barely-related stuff.

What I'd like is a program I can run on remote sites, that will monitor a specific application, and periodically "check in" with a central server... then if that application isn't running, send an alert to the server, and if the server doesn't receive a regular update from the remote machine (like, every 15 minutes or whatever), it also throws an alert that the remote system hasn't checked in.

Obviously, free is wonderful, but this is a business-related thing, so there's no issue with paying for a solution (as long as it's something reasonable, I don't need high-end, full-blown enterprise-grade stuff).

I have only had my Satellite C50-A-19T for 4 months and today I received a notification saying that my battery is now of 'poor' health. Is there any way of fixing this problem and what may have I done to cause this?

I am still under a 1 year free warranty that came with the laptop.

Answer:Satellite C50-A-19T - 'poor' health battery


Generally speaking the battery is part of the notebook and covered by notebook?s standard warranty.
In case the battery is faulty, you could contact the Toshiba authorized service provider in order to fix/replace the faulty part. This should be done free of charge if its warranty covered case.

But before you will contact the ASP in your country, try to calibrate the battery.
To calibrate the battery, you should charge and discharge the battery until it?s fully empty. This procedure should be repeated two, three times in the row.

If it helps, fine, if not -> get in contact with service agents.

Greetings mate.

I've installed standard nvidia driver , but display show me standar PnP device with microsoft standard drivers and 60hz frequency
Win 7 home.

I think there should be original drivers and 75 hz frequency on display

Message was edited by: Lias

Answer:Satellite A500-1G0 - cannot update monitor driver

I think that you think wrong. :)
Why do you think it should be 75Hz for display?

I have two brand new notebooks and both of them have 60 MHz displays. Please note both of them are installed with original Toshiba recovery image so I can say, 100% right display driver.

LCDs have standard settings for 60MHz and it cannot be changed.

I don?t know what is for you ?standard driver? but fact is that your notebook is supported for Win7 64bit only and right nvidia display driver you can find HERE .

If I am right you try to use the same driver. Does it mean the driver installation was not finished properly.
What is the entry in the device manager?

By the way: why you must install this driver again?

Just started having problems today with my Qosmio F60-00Y, purchased June 2010. I do have extended warranty but just wanted a quick fix since system is still operational.

As I have lost my factory settings recovery I can not reset my system.
It is working fine at the moment as long as I don't open both programs Intel RST, TOSHIBA PC Health Monitor.
When I open one, system decides to freeze and fan speed accelerates and it shuts the notebook down. I have done system restore several times too and same problem still happens.

I have reinstalled both programs from:

After re-installing assuming, programs will run fine again. Same thing happens, crashes and shuts down.

I do regular virus and anti spy-wear check up with trend micro 2012 and still active every 7 days and defragment the system every 7 days.
No viruses and spy-wear found.

Answer:Qosmio F60-00Y- Intel RST, TOSHIBA PC Health Monitor crash

It is not easy to say how you can fix this.
Try to remove all problematic applications, clean registry entries and try to install it again.

Hello guys;
I have been using g15 keyboard for 1.5 year and I've just started playing Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. This keyboard had the feature as showing the bullet damage, health remaning and etc. for compatible games. I've downloaded the latest driver and software for g15 from the logitech web site and in the web page, COD4 was on the list which showed the compatible games. I've installed the software and it matches with COD4. It also displays "profile activated Call of Duty 4" when I run the game. But during the play, the LCD monitor shows the clock as it is on windows xp. Is there any option for making it work or something else needed ? I'ld be glad if I get the solution.

Thank you.

Answer:Logitech G15 LCD monitor bullet, health etc. display for COD4

At least anyone who have used G15 with any game, can say his idea.

Hi, I’ve just inherited a desktop computer from my dad. I’m not entirely sure how old it is, but up until quite recently it’s been regularly updated to be (what I believe) was a relatively decent gaming PC. All I need to use it for is pretty basic stuff, just word-processing, internet surfing, basic photo-storage etc, and to use some sort of personal finance software on it.
I have a few issues though, not helped by my relative lack of knowledge and understanding of PCs. First issue is that it doesn’t seem to be performing as quickly as would be ideal, and I want to know if there’s anything I can do to remove some of the clutter and baggage that might be slowing it down? There are 2 users on the windows, one is myself, but the other is my dad and all of the clutter he has used it for. I really just want to get a “fresh start” as at the moment there’s loads of stuff on here I have no use for and would prefer to start again.
The second issue is that I’ve bought a new monitor for the desktop and for some reason the picture doesn’t fill the monitor, there is probably a couple of centimetre gap around the edges and no matter how I play with the setting I can’t work out how to fill it! Any ideas?
Thanks for the help, I appreciate it. I wish I understood what I was doing!

Answer:Inherited computer - monitor issue + health check

Reinstalling the OS would give you a complete new start and speed things up. What OS are you using.

Answer:Reliability Monitor and System Health ReportHi the following shortcuts

So do you want a shortcut for each command or one to run all of them? Should be an easy batch file...

You can run all three from one batch file...

Open notepad...

Type the following:

perfmon.exe /rel
perfmon.exe /report

Now save it as "whatever.bat" to your desktop... I called mine perfmon.bat.

For whatever reason, if I put the perfmon.exe line last it would only run the first 2...???

I didnt like the first file because the command prompt window remained open after executing the batch file.. so change it to this:

START perfmon.exe
START perfmon.exe /rel
START perfmon.exe /report

PS... create the first one... run it and then right click the batch file and edit it, then run again... the second one is cooler!
