Satellite L500-113 - How to record audio from website?

Question: Satellite L500-113 - How to record audio from website?

I have an L500-113.

I am the Program Controller for an Internet radio station, and want to record audio streamed from our website. Regardless of the recording software, I can only record from the built in MIC, even though the stream is playing happily on my computer. No other recording devices are shown in Device Manager. Surely I can record from the built in Realtek soundcard?? I have installed the latest Realtek drivers/manager from Toshiba.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

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

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

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

Answer: Satellite L500-113 - How to record audio from website?

hello,

basiclly, you mic is the only real recording hardware.
however, on a programming level, i think it should be pretty easy for you to record all audio running on the specific jack on the sound card. Just make a class that reads,selects and records on the jack you wish to record from.

cheers,
Phil

[edit]
thinking back over a couple of year, adobe audition used to be able to record from all audio jacks, maybe download the trial and see if it does the trick for you.

Yesterday i found the description about this notebook - Toshiba Satellite L500-17L but I cant find it on the toshiba's site. How can this be?

And there is a lot of information about this one on the web

Answer:Satellite L500-17L - How can I find it on the Toshiba website?

Hi!

I have a little bit searched using Google and it seems that this is a Russian model so you can find the specifications on the Toshiba Russian page:

I hope I could help you a little bit. :)

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?

Hello,
I bought a second hand L500-245 which works well. Sometimes I get audio feedback if I turn the sound up beyond a whisper. I've tried disabling all the mic inputs,and covering up the built-in mic above the screen, but it continues. Is something being microphonic? Is there another microphone?

Answer:How to record the sound from a website on Satellite A100-307

Hi

What sound card was installed on other notebooks??
I have got 2 notebooks at home. One Satellite and one from other manufacture but I do not found such option like you have described.
There is no recording from the wave or mp3. The sound card does not support such function.

I think it?s not possible to record from other audio source. I think you can only use the external micro jack as a recording source because the line-in jack is not available on this unit.

Therefore not stopping onboard speaker from working-sound still comes out disturbing others.

Hi all,

I bought a L500 a few weeks ago (Windows 7 64bit). Everything goes fine except for the sound. 1h or so after turning on the computer, the speakers start to produce a "crackling", "metallic" noise when audio is being reproduced, irrespective of the source (CDs, system sounds, movies, mp3 files...). It's just like there were hundreds of "micro-interruptions". The same with earphones. This seems also to affect any multimedia files, e.g. videos 10 min length take 12 min or so to play due to these micro-interruptions. The sound goes worse with the time and gets normal once the system is restarted, but some minutes later the noise comes again.

I've all the last Toshiba driver updates, including BIOS, LAN and sound cards, etc.

What can I do? Any clue will be welcome.

Many thanks in advance.

Answer:Re: Satellite L500 - Crackling noise when audio is being reproduced

hello,

first thing i would try is to replace the driver from toshiba with the Microsoft driver, I personally dont use any of toshiba's drivers due to branding i dislike, however this to one side I run Windows 7 64 Home Prem, the sound cards (typically realtek) all have Microsoft drivers available, they work with no problem for me.

If its deferntly not a driver issue and you have the same problem with headphones as well as the laptops speakers then its a problem with the soundcard itsself.

Is your laptop still under warranty? hopfully if its hardware its still under warranty. Give toshiba a call, they should pick the laptop up and get it repaired for you solong as you did not get it from somwere like P.C World, AOL etc, if you got it from one of them stores then you need phone or take it to the tekguys.

If you need a step-by-step for using microsofts drivers just reply saying so and i;ll sort that for you :)

Hello,

I cannot get the sound out of the HDMI port of my Satellite L500-131 to my Pioneer amplifier supposed to be designed to manage such tings...

Think the problem lies in the very first steps as I *can't* select the "Realtek HDMI output" as +default+ output, the option is unavailable.
Playing around I managed to switch to an older Micosoft driver hidden in the memory somewhere, and then could select HDMI output as "default" over the laptop speakers. But ultimately this ddn't get me sound through either, though volume control in "sound panel" of Vista indicates signal activity (bars while DVD playing)... :|

Any clue what's wrong ? Selecting "HDMI output" as default sound output seems to be a solver for everyone but it is the one option that is not left to me, so frustrating... :|

Thank you very much for any help provided.

Answer:Satellite L500-131, HDMI output to audio amplifier

Hi

To be honest I often use HDMI connection on my notebook but I never had any problems with this connection. Everything is working properly and even I have checked it again ? All is working fine!

Anyway, in your case I would try to reinstall the sound driver. You can find it on the Toshiba website.

If you use the HDMI connection, connect the cable firstly. Then power on your TV and/or audio amplifier and at last the notebook.
Check this!

Hope for quick answers, so I can send back the notebook in the conversion period.

thank you for help!

ps: sorry for my bad english.

Answer:Satellite L500-164 - How to cut internal speaker in audio out mode?

Hi

Check the settings in control panel -> Realtek HD audio Manager
There is tab called Speakers.
On the right you will find different settings.
One option is called ?Device advanced settings?.

There you should try different option like:
- Tie up same type of input jacks
- Separate all input jacks as independent input devices.

Take a look there a play a little but around?

Greetings,

My name is Boyan and I am from Bulgaria and about an year ago I've bought a satellite laptop from the l500 series ( i can not state which exactly is the model at the moment because my computer is not currently with me and on my user manual the only thing which is stated is that it is for L500/L505/ L500D / L505D . But by memory I think it was the Satellite L500D-ST5506 which is currently not at my dispossal because I gave it for repair for the same problem which I will state down below)

The problem with my laptop is that when I plug a Usb Audio card in my laptop I have a cracking sound when live sound is played trough the speakers/headphones from the external card. I've tried numerous audio cards and speakers/headpohnes which work perfectly fine with other computer, including laptops but the same problem keeps on showing up in the headphones/speakers of my laptop when I am using an external audio card to connect them to the laptop.

The problem is prominent only when the sound signal passes trough an external audio card and it is very annyoing since I use my laptop to create music and i've bought an expenssive audio card and speakers which can not be used with the laptop. I've tried 3 models of audio cards:

I have a Satellite M105-S3084 notebook with XP SP-2 MCE. The sound card seems to be something called "Realtek High Definition Audio" on an internal bus. The driver is 5.10.0.5200 dated 12/9/2005.

This soundcard and driver seems not to have what is necessary to allow me to record streaming audio from the web.

I've been on audio newslists and have determined that although with soundcards like SoundBlaster one can record essentially anything that can be produced by the PC speakers, that is not the case with the card I have in the Toshiba Satellite.

For instance, the only feeds available for recording in software such as Audacity and others are "Mic" and "Line" while what is available with other cards are several other inputs (Audio mix, etc.) that software can use to record the sound from the web browser.

Other than getting a different PC or sound card, is there a way to improve the capabilities of the Realtek High Definition Audio sound card? Have others been able to record web sound using this soundcard?

Thanks.

Answer:Satellite M105-S3084: Not possible to record streaming audio from the web

Hi

I use two programs to record the sound from the internet websites;
The first one is ?Wave-Recorder? and the second ?Messer?.
Both applications allow you to record from wave and to convert and save the files in MP3 format.
You can choose record source; either the external microphone or the wave.

Check it. In my case it works and I?m very happy

I have a problem with recording the Internal Windows Sound (which is known as Stereo Mix)
I am having Satellite A110-195.
I am updating my Sound Driver to the last updates (Realtek HD Audio Sound Driver). I tried to check it out, I pressed on sound icon in tray of task bar > Options Tab > Mixer Device : Realtek HD Audio Input.

I only have "CD Volume" and "Mic Volume". As far as i know, I should have "Stereo Mix" and "Mono Mix" too.

I don't know if the Sound chipset is not supporting to record internal sounds.
Is there anyone could help me please?

Thanks in advance ...

Answer:Satellite A110-195: Can't record internal audio using any programs

Hi

Do you have Vista preinstalled on Satellite A110-195?

I?ve got a Vista on my Satellite which supports the Realtek sound chip.
I?ve got also the Realtek HD audio manager preinsatlled.

I found out that the ?Stereo Mix? was disabled on my notebook.

I could enable it using these steps:

- go to control panel
- access Vista ?Sound?
- choose second tab called ?recording?
- right click and mark the options ?show disabled devices? and ?show disconnected devices?
- then Stereo Mix should be visible
- mark it, choose properties and enable it again


Hope this helps.

Hello, I'd like to record some audio from a line-level source using my computer, but my ThinkPad T410 apparently doesn't have a microphone in jack (which is how I always did it before). So I bought this adapter:http://www.kvconnection.com/product-p/km-iphone-2trs.htmiPhone 4 conductor TRRS male to headphone and microphone-in. However, the adapter does not work. Even when I hook my source up to the microphone-in of that adapter, my laptop still records using the built-in microphone. Did I buy the wrong adapter? Has anyone else had this problem? Is the problem maybe in software? Thanks for any help!

Answer:Using the Combined Audio Connector to Record Audio

Is the line you're connecting to the splitter a stereo or mono cable?  I had this same issue with the T410/T510 systems I sell to my customers (I'm a Lenovo Reseller) and had a custom cable like yours designed.  What I discovered is that if your microphone is stereo there was no problem, but if is a MONO cable you are connecting to the microphone splitter jack the only thing that happed was that the internal mic was enabled. If thats the case just pickup a cheap 3.5mm stereo male to 3.5mm mono female adapter and put that between your "Y" adapter and the cable you are connecting.

Im looking to upgrade my Toshiba L500-1ZP
Upgrade includes 2 x 4GB DDR3 1066Mhz a SSD 500GB and changing out the current i3 330M with an i5 580M (tdp on both is 35W)

The only problem im walking against is Bios support for the i5 580M
Did Toshiba make 1 bios version for ALL L500 series laptops?
ifso can any one tell me if there is a toshiba l500 series laptop with a i5 580m cpu?

Thanks in advanced?

Answer:RAM upgrade of Satellite L500

not sure about the bios, but you might wanna make sure that the i3 die is the same as the i5 die (in shape and size). It should be because mobile i3/5/7's are basically all the same 2c4t with different clocks and cache amounts

Hello,
i can't install Windows 8.1 (Windows 8 is running successfull). Is this "by design" (maybe missing support for things like PAE, NX or SSE2. see http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/w...is-pae-nx-sse2).

Thanks for help

Frank

Answer:Satellite L500-1C7 and Windows 8.1

If Win 8 runs on your notebook properly, then it should be possible to upgrade the Win 8 to Windows 8.1 too…

In order to get Win 8.1, install all Win 8 updates and then access the Windows Store to get the Win 8.1 update.

It should be possible to install the Win 8.1 update in case Win 8 is already up to date.

Hi everyone,

I'm looking to replace the existing 2Gb factory fit memory with 2 x 4Gb .

I've purchased the memory after confirming the memory requirements by manufacturer and model.
When installed the Bios correctly reports 8Gb installed yet when I allow the computer to boot the screen sits blankly with a cursor blinking in the top left corner. Leaving the unit for up to an hour makes no difference.

I've tried to load each sim individually with the same result and have replaced the memory once already with the supplier to no avail.

The memory supplier has now suggested going back to Toshiba (I guess out of desperation).

Am I doing anything fundamentally wrong ?

My New Satellite L500 1W1 Pro Freeze randomly.

I can't associate the freeze at any activity or any program.
The notebook freeze at startup or even afrer hours, with apparently no reasons (mouse pointer and keyboard freezed).

I've installed all the latest drivers and software available from Toshiba site.
I've tested the ram modules with different utility
I've tested the HD with various utilty and it's error free (only some SMART value like reallocation count)
I've disabled all settings regarding power management
I've controlled the temperature but it's ok when the system freeze, nothing strange BUT it freeze randomly.
At the end i've also uninstalled the graphic drivers and the system have installed the intel version automatically (now the system seems to be less freezzable).

I've uninstalled bluetooth and some other utility i don't use.

I don't know what other to try.

Windows 7 it's up to date and i've scanned the system with three different antivirus softwares + antispyware and it's clean, i can't uderstand what is the possibily cause

I won't return the notebook at the assistence becouse i'm sure that the problem it's not simply and becouse i've activated the Office Ready Product and i won't buy another licence key if the notebook it's replaced.

I need a goog PC for my professional activity and now with all this problems i need another notebook to work.

Please Help!

Hi All

I am new to this forum. I have been given a Toshiba Satellite L500 to attempt to repair and the fault is that the laptop was shutdown normally and now will not turn on.

I have checked the power adapter which is giving out 19.25v. I have stripped the laptop down to motherboard level and have checked where the DC jack plug is soldered to the motherboard and that also reads 19.25v with the adapter plugged in. Can anyone suggest a possible cause.

My initial thoughts are a motherboard failure but any other ideas are very welcome.


Gary

Answer:Satellite L500 is not Switching ON

Your description is OK but we still don?t know some facts.

When notebook is connected to AC power supply is power LED on notebook ON or not?
Is battery LED on (charging)?

On this virtual way we can just speculate what the problem can be but if there is no power supply there must be problem with power supply electronic and, I?m afraid, you need some professional help with this.

it was running fine until a fortnight ago, when my computor kept popping up message in the far bottom right hand corner saying windows error, critical error, youre hdd is missing, missing RAM etc etc, a window popped up telling me to do a system scan which i did and it came up with all these very bad errors.. it them popped up a program calle dmemory optimizer and told me to scan and do a defrag.. which i did.. and then teh next thingi knew, the hdd had disapeared from my computor, i couldnt access anything on the desktop, but could tab between the pages i already had open. then teh whole thing crashed.

i did a recovery on my own, and the error appeared to be fixed.. but then would only work properly in safe mode. so i took it to a repairer who charged me $188, reformatt teh whole drive, put on a copy of kapersky and office full version..

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 L500 won't boot

On the picture its visible that the notebook tries to boot from the HDD?. But obviously this procedure fails.
Therefore I would assume that the internal HDD does not work properly?
Probably the previous slowdowns were related to the HDD issues.

Try to boot from using a Linux Live CD or another bootable system live disk (WinPE)
Such ?Live CDs? don?t install anything on the HDD and usually even if the HDD would be faulty, the notebook could be booted up.

Finally I think you will need to replace the HDD in order to reinstall the system.

Only Fn (F6 F7) key don't work.

Tried to uninstall TVAP and Toshiba flashcards support utility and reintall them, restart the computer and still don't work.
The Toshiba ECO mode utility also don't work but i think this could be because the screen brightness can't be adjusted.

Hi WML,

That means all FN keys work without the FN keys for screen brightness control?

It would be interesting to know which versions of TVAP and Flash Cards Support Utility you have used for reinstalling. On Windows 7 you need the newest versions as far as I know, both must be released for Windows 7.
Check this!!!

If you reinstall the applications, remove all old versions first. Restart your notebook and then install TVAP firstly. After one more restart you can install Flash Cards Support Utility and all FN keys should start work.

Last but not least ECO mode utility should also be reinstalled. ;)

Hi I have a second hand Satellite L500-1XC, the previous owner has installed Ubuntu (which I can't access due to password) as well as windows 7 and I'm trying the laptop restore it to factory settings but I just don't know how.

I've tried turning it off and then holding 0 and pressing the start button.

If anyone can help me to fix this laptop I would be so grateful as I really can't afford to buy a recovery disk from Toshiba.

Thanks

Answer:Satellite L500-1XC HDD Recovery help

> I'm trying the laptop restore it to factory settings but I just don't know how
I don?t think that HDD recovery would work because the Linux has been installed on the HDD and I think the partition table has been changed.
This might be the reason why the HDD recovery isn?t working.

You could still check this Toshiba document which describes the whole HDD recovery procedure:

So now HDD recovery does not work? in this case you can use only the installation disk.
You can try to install Windows 7 using Microsoft disk (the Toshiba drivers are downloadable) or you will order the disk from Arvato:

Hi All!

I have noticed that Intel have released new drivers for their 4500MHD graphic card, however, the one's released on Toshiba's site for my Satellite L500-1KK are older and are never updated as frequently as those released on Intel's site, my questions are:

1. Is it safe to use the new drivers from Intel for their chipset or should I stick to the ones released by Toshiba?
2. What possible differences are there between these Intel drivers and Toshiba's? ?:|

Thanks all!

Answer:Satellite L500-1KK - Which driver to use?

Hi,

You see, dude, If everything works fine don't touch the system with any driver update. I still run my laptop with the old drivers and satisfied.

> 1. Is it safe to use the new drivers from Intel for their chipset or should I stick to the ones released by Toshiba?

Yes, you can use intel chipset drivers and shouldn't be worry :)

> What possible differences are there between these Intel drivers and Toshiba's??

As I know, they are pretesed by Toshiba.

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?

Hi!

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.
http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com > 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. ;)

Any suggestions what to do?

Answer:How to use HDD recovery on Satellite L500?

Do you use original preinstalled OS hat you got with your notebook or own OS version?

Have you created recovery discs? If yes, use these discs for recovey image installation.

hello,
I just bought a new Satellite L500-1EH, Windows 7 and none of my function keys work with the fn keys seem to work (meaning that when I press fn key + one of the function keys nothing happens). Does somebody know how can I solve it?

thank you very much,

Answer:Satellite L500-1EH - Nothing happens if I press a FN key

Hi

What do you think about installing the drivers for FN keys?
You have to download Toshiba Value Added Package that you can find on the Toshiba website.

Hi,





I am experiencing a "little" problem. Everything started with the following BSOD :

0x00009C (0x00000000, 0x8922c94c, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)

I managed to find out that the touchpad is faulty. I disconnected it , problem solved.



It was working fine until I noticed that only one core is working out of 2 (Intel i3 M330).

In the BIOS I found:



Dynamic CPU Freqency Mode - Always Low

Core Multi-Processing - Disabled



So I switched them on to:



Dynamic CPU Frequency Mode - Dynamic

Core Multi-Processing - Enabled



For first the windows 7 64bit crashed with the followind BSOD message:



STOP 0x0000009C (0x0000000000000000, 0xFFFFF88002F6BB70, 0x0000000000000000, 0x0000000000000000)



Since this message I can switch it on but there is no display, no response.

Is there any solution for this?



Modell: Satellite L500- 1QK

PSLS9E-01000SEN

Answer:Satellite L500 BSOD

>Since this message I can switch it on but there is no display, no response.

I?m afraid I don?t understand this? what do you mean by ?no display? exactly?
Can you see the Toshiba splash screen and can you access the BIOS properly?

From my understanding this BIOS should be set to default settings (in BIOS press F9 and F10 to save the changes) in order to get the same BIOS settings configured by Toshiba? then the BIOS should be configured properly.

Generally speaking the BSOD appears due to serious software or hardware problem.
In most cases the system recovery should solve system problems but if the BSOD would still appear even after the usage of recovery disk, then I would assume your hardware is affected.

This would mean that any single hardware parts like memory or motherboard should be tested

Recently I noticed that my newly acquired Toshiba Satellite Laptop's fan (Windows 7 64 Bit, Pentium T4300) is permanently running at approx. 50% (according to the Toshiba PC Health Monitor), even if there's 0% CPU usage.

Is this normal?
Or do I have to change some settings in the BIOS or something?

I also believe this effect started after a BIOS update which was released by Toshiba a few days ago...

Thanks in advance

Answer:Satellite L500-1C7 - FAN runs at 50%

Hi

Did you load the default settings in BIOS after the update?

Furthermore you can adjust the cooling method in Windows Power Options. There you can set the cooling method for each power profile, for example Maximum Performance or Battery Optimized. I would recommend choosing the Battery Optimized cooling method, it?s enough in my opinion and the notebook is more silent.
Check this!!!

hi,

does anybody know why the L500-1VT is out of stock everywhere online and the estimated times till new stock arrives keep getting pushed back?

are Toshiba replacing this model with one just a good? i.e. i5 CPU and decent ATI graphics?

Answer:Satellite Pro L500-1VT - not on stock anywhere?

Hi

As far as I know the Satellite Pro L500-1VT is available ONLY in Italy and UK.
If you are leaving somewhere else, then you would need to search for another Pro L500 model with the same hardware specifications.

I?m sure some online dealers would offer similar Pro L500 models?

Hi,

I have a Toshiba L500-176 with Windows 7 Home Premium (64), only one month old and I have a problem with it.
Suddenly, it stopped connecting via wifi, I thought it would be to have installed or uninstalled a program and restores the system to a previous point where if it worked, but still did not detect connections, so I restored the former point, asin but I kept working.
I have tried to activate the wifi with the famous combination fn + f8 but as happens to many people is no particular combination appears on the screen (but on the keyboard). So look at the ConfigFree where it appears that the wlan connection is not available. "

The connections via ethernet cable running smoothly, but as withdrawal cord, no wifi option anywhere.

I tried to fix it with drivers available for this model but no way, as a last alternative format the computer to see if he returned to its original state, but still not working, the wifi light comes on only when you reboot, at first.

There a solution? why looking for information I've found many people with the same problem and few solutions.

PD: certainly in the device manager you see only the Realtek PCIe Controller Family. And right now I have no ethernet cable connected...

As I see, you have made a factory restores settings but it is still not working. Also, it's not shown in device manager that makes me think that there is hardware malfunction related to wifi module. You said it's only one month and still under warranty. So, contact the Asp (service center) in your country:

now when i start it up with the windows XP cd in it the blue screen "windows setup" starts but when its finished loading it gives me an error code:
"*** STOP: 0x0000007B (0xF78DA63C, 0xC0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)"

I've read somewhere that I need to download SATA drivers for my laptop and make a windows xp installation disk with the SATA drivers on it???

I've tried searching these drivers but i dont know wich ones i need and how to make the installation disk
Do I copy my original windows XP home cd and put the drivers in a folder somewhere on the disk?

I hope someone can solve my problem because the laptop is just one year old and I dont really want to buy a new one...

Answer:How to install WXP on my Satellite L500-1ZP?

I just hope you have created recovery DVD before you have started to install own OS. After own OS installation you will not have access to recovery data anymore.

You are right. For WXP installation you need SATA driver. How to install WXP on newer notebook models you can read on http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/kb0/TSB85017Z0000R01.htm

At the end I must say that your last sentence is pretty confusing for me. You have bought notebook designed for Win7 and you want to use old WXP on it. Do you really think you must buy new notebook if you want to install WXP?

Hi,
I cannot get my Toshiba Satellite L500 13T PSLJ3E to work. Here is the timeline:

1. I brought it with Win Vista, It worked great for about 6 months but started slowing down and I decided to change it to Windows 7

2. I installed the Windows 7 using custom install(creating new "windows" folder, not upgrading Vista). Once again it worked great for about a month, but once again it ran into trouble - showing the Windows 7 version of the blue screen of death for 0.5 seconds followed by a restart.

3. I browsed the net and they said that the easiest way to get rid of the problem is to re-install. I did it(after trying several windows repairs) but yes, thats right, it died - before starting the windows it showed problems with Realtek Wireless.

4. I had hopes that third time - the charm will work and re-re-installed the W7(every time using new installation).
Once more time - doesnt work, but this time I cannot even get to install it - the windows installer stops at around 60% of the expanding files and says: problems with the media device. And after the restart I cannot find the Hard Drive(the BIOS shows only FDD and CD/DVD)

Now I'm stuck here, the only way to start the windows is by Safe Mode on my Wondows installed on point 3, yet not every time .
Unfortunately the first of my Recovery DVDs cannot start and on top of that I cannot enter into the recovery partition by pressing 0 at start up, but I see the Recovery Partition when I go to the WIndows in... Read more

Answer:Cannot run the OS on Toshiba Satellite L500

Blue screen and then restart sound's like something with hardware is wrong. I had something like that when my RAM module failed. Check your memory using memtest.

PS. I will not recommend installing windows on windows and reinstalling it. Better format drive and install new clean OS.

edit: or maybe something with your hard drive - if you had an option pull out you hard drive and check it on another computer using HDtune (or something like that)

Could somebody please tell me which keyboards are suitable for Toshiba L500-1V1?

I have to get it as soon as possible and it seems to be impossible to find an original Toshiba keyboard replacement here in Finland.

That is why I am wondering if some other brands keyboard (f.ex asus, acer, hp, samsung, lenovo) would suit my computer because they are available in stores?

Thank you in advance!

Answer:Satellite L500-1V1 What keyboard can I use?

Hi

The Satellite L500 supports and is equipped with an standard black A4+10key keyboard.
Usually keyboards released for other notebook series using the same layout (A4+10key type) should be compatible.

Furthermore you can always order a compatible keyboard from Toshiba authorized service partner in your country.

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.

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

Hello Everybody!
I am Tibor from Hungary. I am not a big forum user but now I would need a little help.

I have a Satellite L500-1GE and I use Windows 7 ultimate (64bit). My problem is the following:
I can not use the hotkeys (FN + F1..9 buttons) and so I can not switch on/off the wireless. It always work (the led of wireless always burn). I downloaded the value package, hotkey, accesibility driver but bootless. In base without drivers some application work (ESC, F1, F5, F6, F7) but I setup the value package nothing work.

The most important function for me it is the the wireless switching (FN + F8) because if it always work I can not use my notebook full accumlator capacity.

Could you help me about this problem?

Thanks so much for your help in advanced and I wish you a Merry Christmas and all the best for the NeW Year!

Kind Regards,
Tibor

For using the FN keys you have to install Toshiba Value Added Package and Flash Cards supports utility. Make sure that both versions are released for Windows 7 64bit already. If you choose a Vista version it will not work!

Hi!

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!
Thx!

Answer:Satellite L500-14Z - Need XP drivers

Hi

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:
http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/wlan/?page=downloads

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?

Hi guys,

I recently bought a new Satellite L500-19X.
Had no real problems until the battery died last night and now it will not boot Wndows at all.

When i switch it on it comes up with the "Start Windows Normally" and "Launch startup repair" options. If i try and repair it loads some files then goes to a black screen with the cursor on it. If I start windows normally it just tries for a bit and goes back to those two options.

From what i've seen a lot of people have had similar problems, all o the sugested solutions have been unsuccessful for me though.

Can't load safe mode. Tried using the recovery disc that was provided and that just leads to the same black screen with the cursor. Also tried booting up without the bttery etc. that also didnt work.


I'm running (or at least trying to run) windows 7 which is already installed on the hardrive.

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated, ive tried pretty much everything though.

Cheers for your time. Any help would be great.

Answer:Cannot recover my Satellite L500-19X

Hi

Hmm?. you?ve got a blinking courser in the upper left corner?
This looks more like an HDD or partition issue?

But try this:
Power up the unit and press F8.
Then choose ?Repair my Computer? and then choose (if possible) HDD Recovery.

If this is not possible then go to BIOS and check if the HDD is recognized (all details should appear).
If HDD is not recognized, then this would mean that your HDD is faulty.

If the HDD is recognized then there could be something wrong with a partition on the HDD?

In such case you could try to create an bootable system disk like WinPE:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_Preinstallation_Environment

Then could format the HDD again and after that could use the recovery disk in order to reinstall the Win 7.

I have just purchased a Toshiba Satellite L500, switched it on and the first thing it is doing is going to the "System Recover Menu". Is this what it is supposed to do???

I selected the 64 bit option and now it comes up with a big "WARNING" that all my data will be overwritten. HELP please...do I go ahead with this system recovery stuff.

This is a brand new laptop never been switched on before.

Answer:Question about Satellite L500

This notebook model is not known to me but I presume your notebook is delivered with Vista 32-bit and Vista 64-bit operating systems. When you start it for the first time you must make decision which one you want to use.

If you choose 64-bit version other one will be deleted and you can use installed version only.
So think twice before you choose OS you want to use.

Later when the OS is installed first thing you should do is to create recovery installation DVD. If something goes wrong you will be able to install chosen operating system using this disc.
For DVD creation use please preinstalled "Toshiba Recovery Disc Creator". I am pretty sure shortcut for quick start you can find on the desktop.
