Preferred Solution: Satellite L500 with XP - Where to find display driver

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

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

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

Answer: Satellite 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?

You can get all drivers on the Toshiba website for your notebook. I have checked this and the website show a new driver for your graphic card.

Just reformatted laptop, went from windows 7 64 Bit to windows 7 32 bit. Reformatted with the disk which came with the laptop. I have no sound at all, the sound was working perfectly before and it keeps saying i have no sound card. I tried to install the sound drivers but i can't find the right ones on the site with my model.

I have a Satelite L500-1DT with PSLSOE model.

Tried to install the drivers available and i just get an application error once its installing

any idea how to fix or where to find the right drivers?


Answer:Satellite L500-1DT - Where to find sound driver?

Hi buddy,

To be honest I don?t know what problems you have with the sound driver but that?s the correct place for all drivers: > Support & Downloads > Download Drivers
Notebook > Satellite > Satellite L Series > Satellite L500 > PSLS0E

But before you install the latest version, remove the current version firstly and clean the registry using CCleaner

My problem is that I'm looking for new drivers for the ATI Radeon HD 5165. When I install # 1, these drivers do not work just do not see any results of work. These drivers seem to be old and some games just do not work on them.

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. :)

Hello to all of you.

I bought last year the Toshiba Satellite A300-1GN, which has ATI Mobility Radeon 3650 HD as VGA. I have searched the ATI site for new drivers, but there weren't any drivers for my graphics card. I only found drivers for ATI Radeon 3650 HD, which is not marked as MOBILITY.

Can someone help me with this issue?

Answer:Satellite A300-1GN - Where can I find a new display driver?


Yes, that?s normal that you can?t find Mobility drivers on the ATI website because they are only designed for desktop cards.

But why do you need a new display driver? Can you notice a problem with it?

Answer:Satellite A80 PSA80E - Where to find the display driver?

Hi mate

Of course the Satellite A80 category is available.
The A80 is a little bit older and therefore the Sat A80 drivers have been moved to Archive area.

In the download form choose the Archive -> Satellite A -> Satellite A80
There should be a driver which you need.

On the way to updating my driver, I uninstalled the old one, but the driver I found off the nVidia website will not work. (The error message: "The nVidia Setup program could not locate any drivers that are compatible with your current hardware. Setup will now exit.")

I then looked for a driver from the Toshiba website, but all it has are ATI or Intel drivers. As well, when I check my system, it cannot find my video card (I use the Debug method), and there is nothing except the basic VGA thing.

It's scary because I know you can't change the graphics card, and if I can't fix this, then I'm screwed. =/

The system find only the VGA... After that I tried it with a catalytic driver from ATI 8.9. But after install it also don't work (I restarted the NB)

Maybe I use the wrong driver from ATI, but I cannot find an entry for Mobility Radeon 2600 HD.
Only Radeon 2600 Hd. I am not sure; did this driver work also for mobility?

Can you give me a link for the right driver?

Answer:Cannot find right display driver after GPU replacement on Satellite P200


First of all it would be interesting to know what notebook series you have.
Secondly are you sure that another graphic chip was used?
Are you sure that this is a Mobility Radeon 2600 HD graphic card?

If you are not 100% sure I would recommend contacting the technician who changed the GPU and to ask for some details; what GPU chip was used and where to get the driver.

I would appreciate some feedback from you!

My L500-126's graphic card is ATI mobility HD4650, after the upgrade to windows 7, I have 3 choices for the graphic card driver:

1. The driver from Toshiba support, version: 8.634.1

2. The driver from windows 7 update, version: 8.634.2

3. The newest driver from ATI-AMD official website, version: 8.650.0

I tried these 3 options and they all worked.

I am wondering which driver is the best choice for me, especially the driver from Toshiba support, is this driver optimized by Toshiba for their laptop?

And is there any advantage for the driver from windows 7 update?


Answer:Which display driver is the best for L500-126?

Best choice is to use Toshiba provided drivers. These drivers are tested and also optimized for certain notebook model.

Win7 update driver may not work properly and just screw up preinstalled driver.

Original ATI driver is not optimized for your notebook model and can force graphic card to run on limit.
That can end with overheating or hardware damage.
It is also possible that ATI official driver cannot be installed on your notebook.

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?

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

2.The cover/lid of my laptop when i close it its kinda not in line with the rest of the pc it is not totaly alligned but its kinda hard to see expect when you look for it..but its properly on and its not lose or anything just not alinged to the "body" of the laptop

3.The lid again, Underneath the screen where the lid is mounted to the "body" off the laptop if.. it is not glued to the screen like the rest of the edges its just putted next to it you can drag in it so you can see the wires going into the screen etc
is that normal?


Answer:Satellite Pro L500-12E - Issue with CD/DVD drive and display

Hey Pedersen37,

1) Maybe your older CD?s doesn?t work properly anymore. What happens if you try the same disks in another computer?

Regarding your display/lid problem?If you mean that you can see cables they going into the screen I can?t see it on my notebook. Normally all cables are invisible and under the plastic.
It?s strange to say something about this but maybe a plastic cover isn?t installed properly or a screw is missing?

If you think something isn?t normal you have to contact your authorized service provider. They can check the notebook.

I've already posted this in the Multimedia section but thought it probably belonged here instead.

I was wondering if anyone else who had this laptop find that the display looks a bit like you can see lines on the screen of where the pixels join?

In my opinion there is no much you can do. What you can do is to change display resolution, the size of the text or calibrate color but if this will help.
Try to play with all these settings.

0x0000116 (0xFFFFFA8007AF8010, 0xFFFFF88004AC3D9C, 0x0...0,
0x0....02) atikmdag.sys Address FFFF88004AC3D9C base at FFFF88004AB1000

After that it was impossible to start the OS (Windows 7) regularly.
The PC was very slow and had a lot of disturbance in the display (a few columns with horizontal stripes all over the display). Starting the Computer in the safe mode was possible, but the disturbance was still there.

My first idea was to deinstall the video card (ATI Radeon Mobility 4650) and it first worked.
I could start my OS normaly.

But the Notebook kept crashing into a BSOD after a few hours.
The report after that was:

OS Version 6.1.7601.
ID: 1031
BCCode 116
BCP1: FFFFFA800580A010 (in a later Crash it was FFFFFA80040BB010)
BCP2: FFFFF88004A2F7F8 (later FFFFF88004AA07F8)
BCP3: 0......0

It's sad, that nobody seems to know anything to solve my problem.

I can't blame the forum - but I definitely blame Toshiba for not even reacting on my request-email for almost two weeks now.

That is really bad service and if one thing is certain after that: I won't buy a Toshiba notebook again, as they seem to help only if you have guaranty left.

With all do respect its not normal that not only that you can't get any new drivers by support but also that the motherboard menufacture won't let you install updated intel graphic cards at all claming your drivers must be manufacture specific!!!

All the MANUAL install trough the device manager people sujjesting won't work as well giving you the same messege when you try to install it manually with advanced installetion wizzard....

Altough my laptop l500 1r3 sepused to be an Hd laptop and i have my hdmi port,movies that i watch through Tv won't stream smoothly.
The movies keep playing faster or slower like robotic movments from time to time every couple of seconds and while connecting the laptop through the hdmi port i got red lines showing up the whole time of the movie in diffrent places!!!

Since there's no drivers update im basiclly stuck and i almost regret i bought this laptop.

I never tought for a second that a lap top with t4400 proccesor,4 gb ram of ddr 3 in 1066 mhz and intel latest display graphic card WON'T be able to stream movies trough tv smoothly....The funny thing is that my friends 10 years old computer with old geforce 4 mx graphics card older proccesor than my own and 512 mb of ram ddr 1 DOES able to play movies through the tv smoothly.

It's a SHAME!!!!

Answer:Satellite L500-1r3: Why there are no new intel display drivers??

Have you tried another HDMI cable?

Does DVI or VGA output work fine?

Have you installed the latest BIOS version?

Have you tried uninstalling the existing Intel Display Drivers before installing the newer drivers?

Is the factory Windows installation installed? Or is a generic version of Windows installed?

i`m using the Satellite L500-120 Notebook, and before installing Windows 7 the laptop had a very comfortable function, when i applied an external display.
When i closed the lid of my notebook, the desktop was shown on my external display (with the native resolution of the external display), so i didn`t have to
switch anything at the Control Panel. In Windows 7, i`m missing this function. I already tried to use the Control Panel, but there are no settings, which fits
with the earlier ones. I can duplicate the display, in order to see my desktop screen at my external display, but with the notebook resolution of 1366 x 768.
If i extend the displays, then there is only the background image at the external display, but this time with the native resolution.

So my question is, how to conifgure Windows to recognize that i closed the lid, and that the desktop screen has to be shown on my external display?
Or do i have to install one of the Toshiba applications, which i had before, that realized this function?

Thanks for any help!

Answer:Satellite L500 - How to show external display after closing lid?


I?m not a Windows 7 user because I will wait until it will be released offical but I hope I can help you a little bit:

First of all in Power Management you can choose the action what happens if you close the Lid (e. g. sleep, turn off, etc.). This action should be disabled because otherwise the notebook will shut down or something else.

Then I think you have to install the display driver for your notebook. You can try the Vista driver because the most of them are work on Windows 7.
Then you should be able to set the correct screen resolution for external monitor.

A working display driver is important for clone or extends monitors so check this!!

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?

Having followed instructions to connect laptop to TV via HDMI there is no signal. Followed instructions in User Manual but
User Manual says go to Adjust Resolution/Advanced/GenericPnPMonitor/Graphics Properties/Display Properties then click 'Multiple Display' but there is only one drop down option 'Single Display' and 1 primary device the notebook.

When I toggle FN F5 to change display it only shows LCD display.

Is this something simple I'm missing or does this suggest a fault with the Toshiba Display Driver?

Answer:Satellite L500: unable to change to Multiple Display to play via TV


For I using the HDMI connection I can recommend this:
Firstly connect the cable to your notebook and TV or external monitor. Then power on the TV and choose the right input channel. Finally power on the notebook and normally the HDMI connection will be recognized automatically.

If it doesn?t work I would recommend updating the display driver and BIOS. Both can be founded on the Toshiba website.

Answer:Satellite L500-14F - Need sound driver for XP


The Satellite L500 doesn?t support Windows XP so you have to search on external websites for drivers.

In your case I would search on the manufactures website of the sound chip. Normally there you can also download the sound driver.

And don?t forget to install SP3 before you install the sound driver. SP3 contains 2 Hotfixes for High Definition Audio cards and you will need it!!!

Answer:Satellite Pro L500 with WXP: reinstalling driver

If uninstalling and reinstalling those drivers doesn't work then the next step is to do a System Restore to restore the registry back to a previous date.

If that doesn't work, then Windows may be corrupted beyond repair. You may need to backup your important data and run Recovery to restore Windows back to it's factory state.

Hi, I have a Toshiba Satellite L500-22R with a ATI Mobiliti Radeon HD 5145.

I want to install new drivers for my card, but Toshiba doesn?t upgrade the driver since 2009 (version 8.653.0.0) and the oficial driver version for ATI is 13.1. The problem is that i can install from AMD page because there is a compatibility problem with hardware.

Someone can help me? I want to upgrade my driver version and i can?t understand this situation.

Answer:Satellite L500-22R - ATI driver upgrade


Here is a AMD page providing this info:

+The following notebooks *are not compatible* with this release:+
+? Any notebook launched after this driver release+
+? Toshiba notebooks (please contact the notebook OEM for driver support for these notebooks)+
+? Sony VAIO notebooks (please contact the notebook OEM for driver support for these notebooks)+
+? Panasonic notebooks (please contact the notebook OEM for driver support for these notebooks)+

In some cases its possible to install such driver but you will have to do that manually from device manager. There you have to click on graphic card, have to choose the Advanced installation procedure which helps you to point to the driver folder which you downloaded from the AMD page. The driver folder should contain dll and ini files. Such files are needed for driver update.

Then i tried to recognize my notebook with downloading pc-recognize program so maybe i just picked wrong model of notebook . The PROGRAM that i installed did not RECOGNIZE my notebook !!!!!!

As far as I know this notebook is equipped with the ATI Mobility Radeon? HD 5145.

[Satellite L500-1UU Part Number: PSLS9E-01N00DG3|]

Not sure why your Win 7 recognize the card as HD 4500 but I recommend checking this in DirectX
In RUN (or search) type DXDIAG and check what info would be available for this GPU.

The graphic card driver?s ini file contains more graphic card chip model numbers so the same driver is compatible with different graphic chips!

Be sure that you have downloaded the right version Display Driver v 8.653 (32bit or 64bit)

I noticed that Toshiba release the new notebook models very often and the drivers will be released for such new series. So in cases the new notebook model uses the same ATI graphic series, you could use the same driver.

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

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

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

Answer:Satellite L500-1CQ PSLS0E - CD/DVD drive does not work - Driver problem?


To be honest I?m a little bit confused.
Are you not able to boot from ANY disks; Windows disk, recover disk, Linux disk???

If it?s the case, then this means that you CD/DVD drive is faulty.
Why? Because CD/DVD drive is recognized and controlled by BIOS while booting from CD or DVD.

When Windows operating system has booted up, then the CD/DVD drive should use the common Microsoft driver which is a part of the Windows OS.
This means that you don?t need to install ANY drivers in order to get the CD/DVD working.

If you can boot from any disk but if the CD/DVD drive is not recognized in MY Computer, then I recommend checking this:

Before you would delete the upper and lower filters from the registry, delete the CD/DVD drive from device manager and then go to registry and remove filters. Then reboot the unit.

Good luck

I was planning to upgrade my already fast 32 meg agp card with a 3dfx card.
I however do not have the drivers for it and I don't own the manual.
It was made by STB systems, has both a male and female vga connectors with cable connecting them both, pci, brown pcb board, three 3dfx chipsets and 12 chips that look like ram.

It has stickers on the back with the following:



It also has a chipset from GENDAC.

If possible, I would like a link to site that has the manual and the drivers.

Windows has my settings on the standard vga whatever, and I can't get it to accept any changes to update to a new driver. I read that I need to make sure it will work with my video card, and I'm not really sure if I know what the name of my video card is. (can you tell I'm new at this??) I've got a bit of info, if someone can ask me the right questions, I might could figure out the answers!!! Help if you can!! It's driving me craaaaaaaazy!!!

Answer:256 color display...cant find driver??

this may work, go to this link and download sisoft sandra. After install, run it, choose video system information, select the drop down bar and choose your vid card, usually it shows your monitor by default but the vid card should be in the list. It is a 2.8meg download but hopefully it will be able to recognize your card. sisoftsandra
Other options in to right click on my computer, choose properties, device manager, display adapter, vid card and see if it gives you any info about it. If not you may need to visually look at the vid card to get the information.

my display is broken and is out of warranty. where i can find a display? a new one or a used one. thanks

Answer:Where can I find a display for Satellite A135-S4527


You can buy a new one from the authorized service provider in your country.
They can order it from Toshiba directly.
But the new display is very expensive? I think it costs about 300$-350$

In my opinion a second hand LCD display should be sufficed.
I would recommend checking some offers on a famous auction website and buying a second hand one?

Plz help to find Windows XP drivers for my video card.

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 2400.

The problem is that the Toshiba Download Website dosnt enclude my video card with XP OS. I know some guys from this forum had such problem before and it was solved. So I hope to to solve mine too.
PLZ help!

Answer:Re: Satellite P200D-12Z - Where can I find display drivers for XP?


I have checked the Toshiba European driver download page and it seems that your model is only Vista supported and not XP. :(

I think must search on external websites for drivers or somewhere else.
Or you try the Mobility Modder to modify the original ATI drivers (Google is your friend).
But be really careful with this! These drivers don?t have an overheat protection and the graphic card can be damaged.

Good luck!

Is there anyone who knows where i can find display hinges for my laptop.
I prefer second hand beause Toshiba asks for a new pair 160 EUR.

And a second hand laptop like mine costs around 250 EUR.

Do all A200 series have the same display hinges?

Help most appreciated!

Answer:Where i can find display hinges for Satellite A200-1k8


If you prefer second hand parts then I recommend checking some auctions pages in internet.
Otherwise you can get new hinges from Toshiba ASP? but it seems you have already asked the guys for such parts and it?s too much for you?

So internet is your first option?

i need new display drivers for my Notebook (Satellite P100), but it's only Version 84.0 to download.
I need version 162.0 or higher.

On Nvidia Web-Site is the new 167.0 beta, but does it work with my system?

Answer:Where can I find new display drivers for Satellite P100

The Toshiba graphic drivers on the Toshiba European driver page are not the same like the original graphic driver from the graphic card manufacturers.
Therefore you cannot compare the driver version numbers!

Generally the graphic driver which appears on the Toshiba page is the newest Toshiba driver.

Best regards

I picked up a solid state drive for my Y550P and reinstalled Windows 7 64 bit (I highly recommend - it makes this system LIGHTNING fast).  I am not a fan of most of the lenovo-ware that comes with the computer so I skipped installing most of it.  I am, however, a fan of the on screen display for volume and wi-fi/bluetooth function keys.  Anyone know what I need to re-install in order to regain this functionality?  Thanks a bunch!

Due to problems with certain games I had been experimenting with alternative ATI drivers for my laptop.
As it turns out their support for Open GL is shockingly broken so I attempted to roll back the drivers.
Unfortunately Windows will not let me do this because I need the original driver files so tried to download them from the Toshiba support page.
Well it appears that the Equium A60-181 aka PSA67E doesn't show up as a listed product anymore also any attempt to search for A60-181 or PSA67E displays empty hits unlike Google or Msn.

What's going on here?? please tell me Toshiba haven't pulled the plug for support this laptop isn't exactly new or old it's still worthy of driver / BIOS update support especially in times of need.

Answer:Equium A60-181 (PSA67E) - Can't find display driver

Answer:Satellite A500 - Can't find display drivers for Windows 7


Normally you can get all drivers here: > Support & Downloads > Download Drivers

I have checked this and it seems that at the moment are no 32bit Windows 7 drivers available.

What you can do now is searching for other display drivers. Maybe another Toshiba notebook has the same graphic card and there are Windows 7 drivers released.
Otherwise you could try the Vista 32bit drivers. Normally they also work on Windows 7.

Hi everybody,
I'm desperately looking for display drivers for my ATI Mobility Radeon X1400 (Satellite A100 PSAA9E)

The ones that can be found on the Toshiba website were last updated in 2007! And they are totally useless on most 3D applications!
Any idea where I could find these?

Many thanks in advance

Answer:Satellite A100 (PSAA9E) - Where I can find new display drivers?


Normally you can find new display drivers on the Toshiba website as you said but I think in this case you can do nothing.

I have checked the ATI/AMD website and there I can find newer drivers for the Mobility Radeon X1400.
But it?s on your own risk to use these drivers because they don?t have an overheat protection. The graphic card can be damaged.

By the way why you want to update the driver? Do you have some problems with the notebook (in games)?
Sometimes it?s useful to search a patch or update for the game and OS.

I have to change the LCD display for my Satellite P100, but first of all I need to know the screen part number to verify compatibility.
How can I find it?


Answer:Satellite P100 - how to find display part number


New notebook display is not cheap. You will have to spend a lot of money.
If you need a one which is compatible then get in contact with your ASP.
The authorized service partner would be helpful to order one.

Purchased laptop in july 2007, o/s Windows Vista Business.
Did windows vista update straight away so do not know if the following problem was there before I updated.

When put into slideshow for any pictures almost immediately a blue screen appears and the problem message that I get is ' problem caused by ATI grapics card.
Have never been able to sort out as when I contacted ATI they told me to contact Toshiba.

Can anyone help? Where can I get the correct drivers and how do I find out on the laptop what my current driver is?

Answer:Satellite Pro P200 (PSPB7E) - Where to find new display drivers?


You can download all drivers and tools for your notebook on the Toshiba website: > Support & Downloads > Download Drivers

Before you install new version you should remove the old one first and then restart the notebook.

If you navigate to graphic properties you can check what display driver you have at the moment.

By the way, what Service Pack did you install for Vista?
