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 L500-1EN - Where to find drivers for XP and Windows 7?


I have a little bit searched on the Toshiba website and it seems that your model belongs to the PSLJTE series and therefore you can download all drivers for XP and Windows 7 here: > Support & Downloads > Download Drivers
Notebook > Satellite > Satellite L Series > Satellite L500 > PSLJTE

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.
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.

Please help me to find solutions.

Answer:Satellite L500-1XZ - Cannot find all drivers


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

Function button F8 means that key combination of FN+F8 doesn?t work, right? Well, for all FN keys you have to install Toshiba Value Added Package and Flash cards Support Utility. Both tools can be downloaded on Toshiba page too.

Where can i find it?


Answer:Satellite L500 PSLJ3E - Where to find XP drivers?


The Win XP drivers for this notebook model are not released.
It?s a new model on the market and only vista drivers are available.

But of course you could install the Windows XP.
Many Toshiba notebooks are equipped with the same devices? therefore another Win XO drivers should run in different notebook models?

You will have to collect the drivers at your own hand? this is not comfortable but I?m sure you could use the notebook with Win XP

It seems that SATELLITE L500-02F PSLS0C-02F012 belongs to Toshiba Canadian series.
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.

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.

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.

where can I find drivers for Win XP??? Or do the Vista drivers work for Win XP, too??

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. ;)

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:

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 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 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:

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.

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?

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.


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.

Hello everybody.

I hope somebody here can help me with my problem. I have old Toshiba laptop- Toshiba Satellite SA40-221, here's it's photo . I've reinstall windows xp and now I can't find drivers. I've look for it on official Toshiba web-page and on other internet resources, but can't find anything. So, I hope you can tell me, where can I find drivers for this laptoop.

P.s. Sorry for bad English b.t.w. :)

Answer:Satellite A40-221 - Where to find Windows XP drivers?


Your model is Satellite A40-221 and not SA40-221.

The drivers are placed on official Toshiba website but you have to search in *Archive* because it?s old notebook model but it?s still possible to download drivers: > Support & Downloads > Download Drivers
Archive > Satellite > Satellite A Series > Satellite A40 > Windows XP

I am looking a upgrading my Satellite M110 from XP to windows 7 via clean install.

I had a look on the Toshiba website to find drivers for my pc (M110) but I couldn?t find any for windows 7.

Does anyone know if they are available on Toshibas website or anywhere for that matter?
Thanks in advance.

Answer:Cannot find Windows 7 drivers for Satellite M110

If you cannot find Win7 drivers on Toshiba support page that means your old notebook model is not supported for Win7.
What you can try is to use drivers from other notebook models with same hardware configuration and see if this will help.
I am sceptic about that because I?ve tried the same with my old Satellite M70 and I was not able to install all Toshiba stuff.

Hi Ratnose,

At the moment the driver support didn?t start for Windows 7 because it will be released this week on 22nd October. So you have to wait some weeks more. ;)

Normally you can get all drivers on the Toshiba page: > Support & Downloads > Download Drivers

Answer:Satellite C670-13D: Where can I find drivers for Windows 7 32 bit


Seems not all Win 7 32bit drivers are available for the C670 at this time.

Since the VAP is not related to specific notebook series but to the system (Win 7 or Vista) you can use the VAP released for other series?

I recommend checking the C660 series and to download the VAP released there.

Answer:Satellite A300D-17F - Where to find drivers for Windows 7?


I have checked the Toshiba page and your model belongs to the PSAKCE series. Therefore the Toshiba website doesn?t show Windows 7 drivers at the moment. Maybe they will be released soon because every day more and more drivers for Windows 7 will be released.

If you want you can try the drivers for another A300D model. Maybe they will work because I don?t see a big difference there.

Not all machines are supported for all operating systems. Either you can find drivers on Toshiba download page for your country or try to use some drivers offered for other notebook models.

If your notebook model is not supported for 32bit nobody of us will be able to help.

By the way: why 32bit OS? Since years Toshiba supports 64bit operating systems.

Answer:Satellite L500D - Can't find SATA drivers for Windows XP

Hi buddy,

The SATA driver is a part of display driver. So you have to download the display driver and extract the files. The driver files that you need you can find in directory SBDrv\SATA

You can use this files to create your own installation disk with these drivers using nLite but make sure that XP disk contains at least SP2 or better SP3.

Of course it?s possible and you can install what you want on your notebook but I don?t understand why you want to change from 64bit OS to 32bit version.
What are the reasons of this?

Normally everything can be downloaded here: > Support & Downloads > Download Drivers

Your model belongs to the PSAR9E series and therefore only 64bit drivers available.

If you search for all A500 models (without PSAR9E) you will find a lot of Vista 32bit drivers. Maybe they work and it?s worth a try!! :)

Answer:Satellite L300-22L - Where can I find Windows 7 (32bit) drivers?

Hi Lena!

Normally you can answer this question yourself or why do you think on the Toshiba website are no Windows 7 drivers?

The question can be answered in one sentence: Windows 7 isn?t on the market as yet.
So this is the reason why you can?t find Windows 7 drivers at the moment.

I would imagine that driver support for Windows 7 will start after release in October. I mean on Vista and XP it was the same. After the official release the driver support started.
Furthermore at the moment it?s not easy to say what Toshiba notebooks will support Windows 7. That remains to be seen.

But let me give you a word of advice: The most Vista drivers are also work on Windows 7. So if you want to install Windows 7 beta you can try it with the Vista drivers from the Toshiba website.

Hi All. well...

I been having a problem with this notebook from day one. First off.. I hate Windows Vista.
Second, it took me forever to figure out how to install windows XP on it..

If anyone else is confused all you have to do is go into BIOS and set the SATA to "Compatible" and boot from CD.

Ok after i have windows XP installed it won't let me download any drivers.. I went to " " but when it says "Model" I can't find M305 anywhere!

All i see is M30 or M30X...i even tried those drivers and they won't load i keep getting "BIOS update FAILED" sigh... i searched everywhere....

I'm trying to help my girlfriend here but theres no use.. I mean hardware wise this baby packs some power but OS. :( Luckly for me i have the MSI WIND i don't have to deal with any of Vista since it comes packed with Windows XP SP3.

But the Toshiba.. sigh..
Can someone Please please please help me.... i stayed up for almost 12 hours trying to figure this out... sigh.. If anyone finds a solution.. i will forever love you :X Here's some info on what notebook i have:

Series: Satallite M305-S4815
Part# PSMD0U-00V00K
Came with Windows Vista Home Premium
Installed Windows XP

Cannot find any drivers for this model.

Answer:Satellite M305-S4815 - Where to find Windows XP drivers

Hi Alexander

This is a long story but believe me ;) the solution is simple :D

You cannot find the drivers for this unit on the Toshiba UK (European) driver page because this unit was designed for the Toshiba US market ;)
Therefore the drivers are not released on European page but on the US page!!!

This is the whole secret ;)

So if you need the drivers, go to the Toshiba US page:

Choose your notebook model and you will find all necessary drivers.

Hi Alex

Huh ...what to say now. Why you are doing such stupid mistakes?
Please don?t understand me wrong but to install some OS and then try to find the drivers is for me is really ?crazy?.

For me is logic step to check OS support at first, to collect drivers and then install OS including all necessary drivers. I just hope you have created recovery DVD before you have installed WXP.
Where you have searched for WXP drivers?

If you check Toshiba support page you will see that your notebook model is not supported for WXP so where you want to search the drivers for WXP now? Hardware used in your Satellite is based on newest technology and standards, so the hardware manufacturers don?t support t for old WXP.

Anyway we can try to find some of them. Which A665 do you have exactly? PSAW3E or PSAW9E?

I bought a Satellite L500 with Vista as the os. I upgraded to win 7 using the Toshiba upgrade disc I was sent. Since installing Windows 7 my laptop freezes at any time.
Ctrl-alt-del do nothing.

My only option is to turn it off with the power button. I have installed all the available drivers from the Toshiba site but to no avail. Also, since installing Win 7 the FN key does not work, the touch pad won't work and the eco utility won't work. I have checked all the drivers that I can find and reinstalled or tried to update them. I have looked at the settings for the mouse and pointing device and it all says its working.

I think it is because I can't turn it on with the FN key- FN+F9. I can mute the volume now with FN+ESC (couldn?t a few days ago) I can use the FN key to sleep and lock the laptop but the dim/ brightness keys don't work. It seems they work up to F5 only.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi joey,

Can you find any information in Windows event viewer about this freeze?

You should check the device manager for unknown devices or yellow exclamation marks. Maybe it?s a driver issue.

Regarding the FN keys you have to install Toshiba Value Added Package and Flash Cards Support Utility. They are required for FN keys and then you are able to enable/disable the touchpad (FN+F9).

Last but not least check the Toshiba page for a Windows 7 version of Eco Utility.

There you can download the modem driver for Windows 7 32bit and Windows 7 64bit. :)

Hi all.

Although still mostly functional, Ive got several issues with my L500 which i bought 2 years ago (win updater, security center, a bunch of stupid annoying little things i have to scour the internet for specific answers) so I've decided to reinstall windows and start again from scratch rather than try to deal with each of them individually. I have tried to fix them several times now.

Ive never used a laptop before this one so this is somewhat different to what i used to do when reinstalling windows on my old pc so i thought before going ahead I'd check with some experienced laptop users.

My L500 came with minimal instructions, a product key and no windows cd. From what I have gathered so far from help documents, surfing and from a quick chat today with some one who sells computer gear is:

create a 'recovery disk' -which windows told me to label as 'windows 7 64bit repair disk'

back up my data- im buying a 500gb external hardrive for the occasion.

format my internal harddrive (erm its still right click *format* isnt it?)

once formatted insert all haloed recovery disk wich restores my L500 to manufacturers factory default setting from a partition i seem to remember the computer creating when i first turned the thing on.(is there a way i can check this? or is it standard?)

this is pretty much the gist of what the guy in the store told me today. he said it was a much faster alternative to buying a new windows cd and doing that from scratch. its also... Read more

Answer:Satellite L500 - reinstalling Windows check

OK I have an L600 as my old laptop and I reinstalled windows 7 by downloading a windows 7 iso and burning it to a DVD and using my product key you if it,s the same you have intel graphics and chipset i may be wrong but mine does so google digital river windows 7 ISO download it 64 or 32 depending what your flavour is you will need your wifi driver too as windows does,nt pick that up should be able to get that from Toshiba support.

I,d recommend formatting the whole drive and removing all the junk that they pre install so you have a nice clean install but you first install could be a test run to get you drivers you can use the intel detect you find your drivers for chipset and graphics

Hi all,

I'm newly joined here in the forum and I am looking for a sound driver for my Satellite L500-1EJ model laptop which I bought last year here in Doha.

I am really surprised that the model number is not available in Toshiba driver download website!! ??

Can anyone help me please?? I am using Windows XP, service pack 2 now.


Answer:Satellite L500-1EJ - Looking for Windows XP sound driver

Hi shihabuhashim,

Why is the model number not available on Toshiba website? Where have you searched?

I have checked the Toshiba website and I can find it: > Support & Downloads > Download drivers
Notebook > Satellite > Satellite L Series > Satellite L500 > PSLS0E > Windows XP
(Satellite L500-1EJ belongs to PSLS0E series)

Now download the sound driver that you need but it?s recommendable installing Service Pack 3 before you start with driver installation because it contains important updates.

I have bought a new laptop Toshiba Satellite L500-1EV. Now I am with Windows 7 32 bit OS, and I noticed that some of the shortcuts - espacially the "fn-F8" - for switching on and off the wireless adapter and "fn-F9" for toggling between mouse and touchpad input don't work. After I press FN-F8 the wireless adapter is still working and the indicator still lights. After pressing FN-F9 the system keeps on receiving input from both mouse and touchpad.

Am I missing some driver?
Thank you !

Answer:Satellite L500-1EV- Some FN keys don't work on Windows 7


Have you installed Windows 7 yourself or was it preinstalled on your notebook?

As far as I know for the FN keys you need Toshiba Value Added Package and Flash Cards Support Utility. In your case I would try to reinstall both of them, VAP firstly and then Flash Cards Support Utility.

Check the Toshiba website where you can find both tools! :)

Hi I have a Satellite L500-1XM that keeps bluescreening with an iaStor.sys error. It happens randomly between 10 mins and a few seconds after booting (even in safe mode).

I have tried a memory test and that has turned out fine. I have checked the system logs and they don't indicate hard drive failure nor does chkdsk report any corruption or bad sectors.
What could be causing this?

Answer:Satellite L500-1XM Windows 7 Bluescreen iaStor.sys

I ended up rebuilding the Win 7 OS from a recovery CD and all seems to be well now.
I am suspecting it was caused by a crafty virus as I ran GMER in safe mode and I got a message saying C:\windows\system32\config cannot be accessed, which seemed quite unusual.

I have got a Toshiba L500 13W laptop which originally came with windows Vista.
I already installed Windows 7 ultimate 32-bit, but i don't like either Vista or 7, becausa of that new taskbar interface.
So i was thinking to install windows xp on it.

Toshiba offers the drivers, but i already had problems installing xp on a Vista designed desktop.
I had to make a special CD with the SATA drivers, which toshiba doesn't offer for this laptop.

So i wanted to know if somone of you people have already installed xp on this laptop model.
If you had any problems, what drivers did you use and if the original factory disc worked.

thank you for reading ,

please reply!!!

Answer:Re: Satellite L500-13W - Windows XP installation - need details

Hi mate

First of all you can install Windows XP on this notebook without the installation of SATA drivers too.
In BIOS you have to set the SATA controller mode to compatible (instead of AHCI).
This will simulate an IDE HDD controller and this does not need any SATA drivers.

Of course it?s advisable to install the SATA drivers because of the HDD performance but Win XP will run in compatible mode too.

The notebook L500-13W belongs to PSLJ3E series.
You should choose this series for driver download.

You can download the drivers from Toshiba European driver page.

The Intel Storage Manager contains the SATA drivers?

Good day,
I bought my Toshiba Satellite L500 around 1 and a half years ago. I remember seeing a page in my manual that said that it would be possible to download Windows 7 free of charge.
I've been searching around for this however I couldn't find anything. Is there anyway I can find this page?

Thank you in advance,
Eduardas Lazebnyj

Answer:Re: Satellite L500 - 2e - free Windows 7 download

Operating system download is not possible.
I don?t know what kind of info you saw at this time but I presume you saw info about Windows7 upgrade.

Upgrade DVD was for free and Toshiba customers have paid shipment only.

Unfortunately this offer was limited in time and doesn?t exist anymore.

My nephew owns this 1 year old laptop and asked me for help yesterday.
There is a permanent eggtimer on the mouse cursor and clicking trackpad or any key does nothing.

I ctrl, alt, del to open and select task manager but then the thing freezes. depowering then the only solution.
I could not access my computer or start/ programs etc. clicking anything does nothing.

I booted in safe mode with networking and updated & ran several programs - super antispyware, spybot, ccleaner & anti malwarebytes. the latter found some stuff but no importance or anything was reported by any.

He has no recovery discs as none were supplied. he never made the recovery discs as advised when new So i tried to make a set of discs but it was unable to read some files and i had to abort the operation.
I downloaded and ran system mechanic but this found no real problems.

When i try to open my computer the response is a long time in coming and opens up a m/s windows help page only. It advises system restore but there ar no restore points available.

When i tried running avg it was behaving "very weird" to say the least. i uninstalled this too.

I uninstalled several toolbars and gaming stuff that my nephew had but for all of my efforts, above the situation remains the same. I'm now making a windows repair disc and will try that to see if it helps.

I put the disc in and rebooted with poor results. it asked me to reinstall windows and i accepted. i then, a long time l... Read more

Answer:Satellite L500 does not boot up - Windows issue?

>I think i need a new windows 7 (64) disc or a recovery dvd set from toshiba.
> Any thoughts on recovering a bad situation would be most welcome.

Yes, I agree with you? at this point I would also try to reinstall an fresh Windows system or the image from Toshiba Recovery disk?
Usually the new OS installation would help to determine what?s wrong here? from my point of view, it looks like the OS has been muddled up and possibly an installation of OS would solve this.

But as you know, this is just a theory. I think if new OS installation (Recovery) would not help you, then the next should be an HDD and RAM test?

What do you think?

After install SP1 on Windows 7 64bit does not work setting the display brightness! Installing Toshiba Value Added Package 1.4.1 for Windows 7 64-bit not helped!

Need help!

Answer:Satellite L500 - FN+F6/F7 not work after Windows 7 SP1 installation


Let's try to find out what can be the cause by checking general behaviour:

- Pressing FN only should partly light up a small lamp on the keyboard AND if TVAP was installed with basic configuration should also put some images in the top of your screen. Please explain what happens in your case concerning the lamp and the visual feedback on the screen when pressing and holding the FN button only.

- Pressing i.e. FN + F5 should give You a possibility to switch between display outputs which is visualized on the display with some nice pictures. Let us know what happens when You do this please.

at first excuse my bad english, please. :)

I bought my L500-208 a few years ago, with Windows7 64bit.
My activation-Key is on the bottom, but its not really readable completely anymore. I still got the bill included the bill of the license key (Windows7 64bit).
How do i get my activatino-key back. Is there any way to get it?

Thank you for your helpp,


Answer:Win7 Windows key on my Satellite L500 is not readable

Maybe it sounds stupid now but it is not important if this product key is readable or not. It is just evidence that you have bought notebook with preinstalled OS and valid licence key.

This key belongs to original preinstalled OS (recovery image) and this original recovery image must not be activated. You can install it 1000 times and it will be activated every time after clean installation.

In case that you want to install other OS version this key cannot be used for activation. Simply put, this key is useless.

Have a Satellite L500 Windows 7 32 bit. Windows Backup on external disk does not (longer) work. Message: Last backup was not successfull. Error message 0x8007002.

Can set restoration/recovery point and can backup from restoration/recovery points, but cannot actively save/backup data on external units with Windows tools. Toshiba Board for "secure your laptop" does not work as well. If possible, do not want to restore the whole OS.

Thanks for your help.

Answer:Satellite L500 - Error in Windows backup


To be honest I doubt this issue has something to do with Toshiba?

Have you already checked Google for useful links?

I found an answer that cleaning the registry with CCleaner (or another program) worked? It would be worth a try ;)
