1. Where can I find the service site for this notebook?

2. One memory module can be removed, how much memory can I place there? (If I buy a 512M notebook SDRAM, will it work whith it?)

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.)

Hello!

I have support problems with my notebook..
When I try to get support or register my Satellite, I can find my model number/serial number on any toshiba site.

When i try to valide serial number; i get this: "Spiacenti! Il numero di serie non esiste." Why???
I need drivers and software.. but i can't find it..

Model No: L500-158
Serial No: 89434057K
Part No: PSLJ3E-028023IT

Please help..

p.s. sorry for my bad English..

Answer:Satellite L500 - Cannot find notebook model on Toshiba support page

Hi

Are you using the Tempro tool in order to register the notebook?
If yes, then you should update this tool to the latest version v3.33

Check this:
+Why does TEMPRO not accept my serial number as being valid?+
http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/kb0/FAQ0102S40000R01.htm


Otherwise the L500-158 belongs to the PSLJ3E series and all drivers can be found on the Toshiba European driver page:

I am Reinstalling Windows 8.1, But Cannot Find The Product Key For My HP 15 Notebook PC. Does Anyone Know We're It Is Located.

Answer:We're do I find windows 8.1 product key on HP 15 notebook pc

Hi: The windows product key is encrypted in the BIOS.  Microsoft put an end to product key stickers starting with all PC's that come with Windows 8. The product key will automatically populate the area where you enter the key as you install W8.1. Note:  You  have to use the HP recovery disks, recovery disk set you made when you first got the PC, or a W8.1 OEM installation disk. If you plan on trying to use the W8.1 media you can download from Microsoft, there is a trick to get that to work. http://www.eightforums.com/installation-setup/38486-need-help-formatted-genuine-windows-8-lenovo.htm...

The most defitive minidump error is 0x000000D3: DRIVER_PORTION_MUST_BE_NONPAGED
Basically a driver is attempting to access a higher IRQ Level as paged when it actually should be non-paged. This results in system crashes.

The driver in question is kl1.sys which belongs to your Kaspersky antivirus. Try uninstalling it via Safe Mode and reboot. Then reinstall and see if that helps.

Hi!

I have a TOSHIBA notebook Satellite P10, Windows XP.

It is a new computer, not second hand!
The problem is that it shuts down itself when I connect it to the AC adapter.

The only way I can work is charging it while it is off and then using it while on battery.

The problem appeared after 20 days I bought it.
I sent it to the TOSHIBA service, they updated the BIOS, it worked perfectly for 5 hours (connected to the AC adapter) and then the same problem appeared.

Do you have any suggestions?
I am looking forward to your replies!

Hi-

I had a problem a while back with my Satellite L10 and was unable to get full recovery settings after installing Sun Virtual Box and ignoring Microsoft warnings.

I suspect this has now cloned my disk. Something is very very wrong. I am using Win 7 beta in the interim but would like my XP back.

Answer:Sun Virtual Box & Toshiba Satellite L10 - product recovery settings problem

Hi

Sun Virtual Box is not known to me and I don?t know what happened with your installed Win XP on the HDD (if you have such OS installed)?
Usually you should be able to start the system using the safe mode? Restart your computer and start pressing the F8 key on your keyboard. Select an option (last good configuration, etc?) when the Windows Advanced Options menu appears, and then press ENTER.
Check this!

If you are able to boot into the Win XP then you could use the system restore tool and could set the OS to the early time point before the Sun Virtual Box has been installed

Hi! I just bought a Toshiba Satellite R830-146, with the following general specs:

OS: Windows 7 Home Premium
Processor: Intel i5-24010M
RAM: 4 GB DDR II
HDD 640 GB

I've spent installing/configuring it the last few days.

Besides to the original, Aministrator account I initially worked with when turning on the machine and starting the installation/config process, I had to create another user account with administrator privileges. ?The reason? Because the Internet Explorer 9 settings in the original Admin account had somehow gone corrupt: some web pages I need absolutely to work with because of professional reasons can't be correctly loaded anymore, and those web pages are only compatible with Internet Explorer, not any other navigator, Mozilla or anything. After several hoyrs of work trying to fix that issue, I couldn't find any way to solve it.

So I created a second admin. User account (with the intention of deleting the original Admin account if the new one worked OK); and in the new admin. account IE 9 works fine in any web page ? but I that's where my issue with the Toshiba ?Online Product Info? application begins.

Namely: Toshiba OPI app does not work at all in the new admin. user account, though it worked perfectly in the original amin account - and it still does (I haven't yet dared to delete the original admin. account)! When it runs in the new admin account, Toshiba OPI only shows an error message. I've tried with un-installing the utility, then re... Read more

Answer:Problem with Toshiba Online Product Information in Satellite R830

In the last few years I?ve changed 3 Toshiba notebooks and the first thing I?ve done was to remove OPI and several other Toshiba specific applications. Why? All of them start with Windows, slow down notebook start, run in the background for nothing.

From my experience Toshiba doesn?t offer new stuff daily so, generally speaking you can use OPI every two months to check if anything new is offered or not. You can do this when you start your notebook with original admin account.

You know these ?specific? issues are not easy to explain. Toshiba tested preinstalled software and functionality with original account. Who knows what is corrupted with your admin account and what have you done in the past.

In my opinion, if you want to keep your configuration, stop OPI to run with your additional account and be happy. Every two months login using original admin account and check for updates.

Preinstalled Office version is not a full version. It is 60 days trial version. 60 days you can use Office and test it. If you like it you must buy valid licence.

That?s the reason why you cannot find licence code. Unfortunately your seller is not well informed about product they offer.

Answer:Cannot install Toshiba Recovery image on my Satellite notebook

You can install original recovery image and set notebook to ?factory settings? using two possible options:

-to use recovery DVD

If I understand you right you have installed own OS in hope to use your notebook but on this way you have ?deleted? this repair my computer option so you will not be able to start installation from HDD. Your only option is usage of recovery DVD.

Now the million dollar question: have you created recovery DVD following Toshiba advice to do this?

When I have the touchpad enabled the cursor jumps around the screen when I'm typing somthing causing me grief. It also has minimized the current browser I'm in, not always but has happened.

When I disable it and connect my Logitech wheel mouse (which I'v used for 2+ years) the problem disappears but I can't highlight/select things properly. For example, normally when I double click on a word it highlights but it doesn't do that anymore. Or when I try to select a a few words it selects the entire sentence or parts of it. I have to use the shift and arrow key. Also using the vertical scroll gives me a problem as well.

I downloaded and installed the current mouse drivers, changed the USB the mouse connects to...nothing. I'm using XP Home version (i've only used the pro version before).

It could be a hardware issue.

You could try to un-install all drivers in Device Manager then re-boot. Vista will re-install. Also make sure to go to OEM site and get updated driver - if available.

Note that you will lose mouse function completely after un-install. Have USB mouse or b/c familar with CTRL-ALT-DEL that will get you to screen so you can use arrow keys to restart system

I plan to replace the failing CDRW/DVD-drive in my Toshiba Satellite 5100-503 (european version, it was sold as 5105 in the US and other countries).
The built-in drive is a UJDA730.
As upgrade I consider the highly regarded a Slimline DVD+/-RW drive. Unfortunately, some research on the internet revealed that upgrading a notebook's optical drive is not as straightforward as one might hope. I had no trouble removing my old drive (you only have to remove the keyboard and unscrew two screws), so I consider myself capable of putting in an new drive instead. However, two problems remain:

-mechanical compatibily: The 6500A appears to have a different front bezel layout. Its eject button and LED are in a different position than that of my current drive, so I doubt I will be able to use my old bezel with the other one. In addition, the bezel of my old drive has a recess in the lower right corner (similar to that found on some Fujitsu-Siemens notebooks), which gives room for the volume control of the notebook. So I cannot reuse the old bezel, and the NEC's bezel will probably not allow me to close the drive's tray. I wonder if some Dremel-work on the plastic parts of the NEC drive will allow me to fit it in physically. Has anybody tried that?

-electronical compatibility: notebook drives generally do not have jumpers to change their Master/Slave/cable select configuration. Instead this is set within the firmware, so changing it requires flashing a new firmware, which is not ea... Read more

Answer:Replace my notebook drive in a Toshiba Satellite 5100/5105 - Experience?

Hi,

at first the CD drive in a Satellite 5100 is fixed mounted and only replaceable with the same model! So another modell could work, but as you see the bezel don't fits and perhaps the new drive doesn't fit to 100%! So you will have problems all the way!

I upgraded windows Vista on my Toshiba satellite L300 (intel 45 express chipset,core 2 Duo 2GHz processor) with Windows 7. All drivers taken automatically. But when I started Webcam (chicony webcam) a message appeared: "Webcam driver open fail.Please restart Camera or Computer." Message persists after restaring repeatedly. Same with Modem, When I tried to connect internet on Dial up modem, message appeared "Dial tone not present." Actually Dial tone was present. Device manager is showing both devices as "Working Properly". Can any one suggest solution?

Hi iqbalhuma and welcome to the forum!

Please go to Toshiba support web and download your drivers from them as there are vista drivers for your model.

Hi everybody

I bought a laptop TOSHIBA Sattellite from a supermarket, but when I wanted to download the drivers from TOSHIBA official site, I did not find my pc in the list of drivers or in any page of the site, even with the automatic detection, knowing that reference of the laptop is TOSHIBA Satellite C55-A-19K.

Now I want to know is that normal, or am I a victim of an imitation product.

Answer:Cannot find my Satellite C55-A-19K on Toshiba page

As I can see this notebook model was delivered without preinstalled operating system so I presume you want to find drivers, tools and utilities on Toshiba download page - http://www.toshiba.eu/innovation/download_drivers_bios.jsp

Your notebook model is listed there but you must watch which criteria you must choose. As you can see you cannot search for C55-A-19K but for Satellite C55-A with part number PSCG8E.

Please check it again.

Hello everybody.
I've got an old fashioned 480 CDT here, used, but still works fine. Runs Win98 fine so far.

The Problem: The machine urgently needs re-installation, but I've got no disks for the Toshiba specific tools (i.e. HWSETUP etc.) which came originally with the laptop. (But a Win98 CD I do have!) Seems that they've been lost along its long way.

I didn't find a possibility to download these tools from the Toshiba support pages. Maybe I'm too blind so somebody can give me a link where to download the Toshiba Tools?

Where can I find these tools? (I did find the Archive section, but there these tools aren't listed :-(

Thanks in advance.

Martin.

Answer:Where I could find Toshiba tools for my Satellite Pro 480 CDT

Hi,

I looked on the toshiba sites after your problem and you could go to http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com
in the menu Support & Download - Driver Download you could find a site to download drivers.

In the first drop down menu you have to choose ARCHIVE there is your laptop.

But there is only the Advanced Power Mode for W98 and BIOS update downloadable

it seems that the Satellite Pro 480 was only delievered with Win95.

It'll hope this will help you

Hello,

I turned on my laptop running windows 8 and the backlight lit up but there was no display. I could hear it turning on and the indicator light came on. When connected to an external monitor, the display was just fine. I did some research, opened it up and disconnected and reconnected a few things (which I do often) and closed it back up. When I tried to turn it on this morning it was unresponsive. When connected to the ac adapter the charging light will turn on but the power button does not turn the laptop on. I desperately need this laptop for school, it's beyond it's warranty and I don't have the money to get it serviced. If I can find the source of the problem I'm open to replacing said part as long as it's not more expensive than sending it out to Toshiba.

I've since taken the entire thing apart. The only things connected are the motherboard and CPU, both of which I've taken out and cleaned (fan was gross but I digress). I'm handy enough to be able to put it back together correctly and I know the basic parts, but I was hoping that someone could walk me though some troubleshooting as I put it back together. Or if that's not how it's done, maybe someone can help me take it apart in the right order to isolate the problem part once I get it back together.

I have high hopes that it can work again (as it was powering up just fine a couple days ago with the exception if the display problem) I'm just not sure how to ... Read more

Hi,

I cannot find the Windows 10 product Key on my Toshiba Notebook. Where is the sticker? On my notebook or elsewhere? Thank you for your answers in advance

Answer:Cannot find Windows 10 serial key on Toshiba Satellite C50-C-1JL

Windows 8 PCs now embed their product keys in the BIOS.

In the past, a new Windows PC would display its product key on a sticker, usually on the side of a desktop and on the base or the bottom of the battery compartment on a laptop. But with Windows 8, Microsoft has switched gears and now stores and encrypts the key in the BIOS instead.

Guess its the same for Win 10.

I've seen an HP laptop running Win 10 that doesn't have said sticker either.

Hello,

I have a Toshiba Satellite U205-S5002. Yesterday when I attempted to start my laptop I received this error message: windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: \windows\system32\config\system

And something about pressing "r" from the recovery disk. Well, I booted from the only disk I received when I purchased the computer and there is no option for repair. The only options available are to return the laptop to "out of box" condition, or to erase the hard drive. In addition, every search I've done on this error message references a recovery console, yet I cannot seem to find one.

I have several very important documents that I did not back up. Also, this happened after I shut the laptop down and put it in my laptop backback (in a nylon zipped pocket) and wonder if it could have overheated? I'm dreading the possibility that my documents cannot be retrieved.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Specifically I need to know if and how I can get to the recovery console (I've tried F8 to no avail).

Please help...

Thanks

Answer:Toshiba Satellite Can't Find Recovery Console

Hello all. I am very new here. By very new I mean this is my first time posting on a Tech forum. I very often search for answers and techspot.com appears a lot with solutions to practically every question I can think of.
Today I am stumped and running short on time.

My colleague from work, who is quite poor with computers and setting up and stuff, so I told him I would help him by removing Vista from his system and installing windows XP.
I know that this day and age I should be upgrading him to Windows 7, but I dont have that CD.

What I have done is this:

Installed a Windows XP Professional for a DELL onto his Toshiba Satellite A100-033.
I already knew (thanks to forums) that I would need to install the drivers for many of the devices after Windows XP installed. Oh I should mention, When installing XP I deleted the partition that originally hosted Vista, and formatted the drive to NTSF (forgive me if the arconym isnt exactly correct).
After installing XP, I searched Device Manager for the yellow ? marks. I currently have 7 yellows:

- ? Mass Storage Controller
- ? PCI Device

Answer:Need to find Toshiba Satellite A100-033 drivers? Do they still exist?

If the PC you are working on was bought with Vista pre-installed on, then installing XP should be ok as far as the hardware is concerned.
You can try a program to automatically do the searching for you, but it's not always 100% correct, and you may be left with a few to find.
This one seems to work fairly well;
http://www.driveridentifier.com/
You will need the product key that was supplied with the installation disc, to activate windows.
You should be able to get the Video card driver from either Nvidia or AMD (or SIS), from the information in 'Device manager'. the 'update driver' option can work, but sometimes has been known to download an old version of the driver.

About a month ago I was on my notebook browsing clipart on Office.Microsoft.com when a window popped up in the lower right corner (taskbar). The only anti-virus I was using was Windows Defender and running IOBit360.

I will tell you what I remember. The window borders in the pop up were red, it presented itself as a Microsoft Windows product and it stated I was infected with a virus. There were 2 or 3 buttons to click and I clicked one of them which prompted me to buy the product, I did not do this. I closed the window, again and again, and downloaded several anti-virus, anti-spyware, and anti-malware free programs in addition to system optimization software. Several threats were found and removed (unfortunately I do not have the logs for these events) but the startup was getting slower and slower and I believe my settings were being hijacked.

Hi,
My laptop cannot tell me any post after the Toshiba logo just black screen. Cannot get into the bios or anything... These are the things I have tried:
Taken hard drive out,
Taken ram out and only tried one..
Taken Battery Cmos battery out for a few minutes..
Had a look at the motherboard and fan is not even working when I turn it on..
I have taken the cpu and put it back in..
Defiantly Sounds like the motherboard problem but want to know if its just a chip that needs to be replaced and soldered.. If anyone has any ideas that will be awesome.

Thanks

when using the above card, and TRENDnet TEW-311BRP WireLess Broadband Router, I cannot get a stable connection.

It always connect and disconnect me.

I use this machine and card all over the world: airports, hotels, offices and it works great.

I asked the dealer to replace the 311. Same problem.

However, if I stick TRENDnet PCMCIA card and disable the Toshiba Wireless LAN Mini PCI Card, I connect w/o disconnections.

any idea?

Greetings, I am trying to update my Toshiba Satellite P50-C-11M through the Service Station, however an error occurs. Please note the laptop is roughly a week old only.

As I press install on the updates I get the following message: "The software update download operation failed. Reason: Retrieving the COM class factory for component with CLSID {4991D34B-80A1-4291-83B6-3328366B9097}.

I tried the following solutions and nothing worked:
1. Updated the BIOS Independently from the Toshiba Europe Website.
2. Uninstalled the Service Station and reinstalled it again.

Thank you, and I hope this helps others too.

Hi...

I had been using Toshiba A30 for a pretty long time but I had some serious problems and contacted local Customer Support Dept... But I thought it's better to contact Toshiba Europe or Toshiba Worldwire regarding my concern...

Thanks..

Answer:Satellite A30 Should I contact Toshiba Europe or Toshiba Worldwide?

Hi

What a strange question?.
If you have some problems with you notebook you have to contact the authorized service provider in your country.
The technicians should help you.
But listen; if your notebook is out of warranty (and I think it is) you will have to pay for the reparation!!

But what?s a problem with you unit???

I ve loaded one laptop and trying to add one more and its states invalid product key ? when its states you can load 3 units - Tells you to to www.norton.com/digtal which is no help

Answer:I have a Product key for 3 units i cant load on notebook

I assume, from the web address given, that you are having product key issues with some Norton product or other. It's difficult to see how a general computer help website such as ours can help with a specific issue like this. The provider is the only one that can say why their product keys are not working according to their marketing literature. If your posted website is no help then maybe try this Norton forum:http://community.norton.com/t5/Nort...EDIT: Added linkAlways pop back and let us know the outcome - thanksmessage edited by Derek

pleas helping me to find solution to my problem i have a new laptop hp pavilion g6 1220sx and there was win 7 home premium but i formatted the hard disk and in addition to the recovery partition was removed what can i do if i have a product key for win 7 home premium

Answer:HP Pavilion g6-1220sx Notebook PC Product Spe

There are a couple of solutions available.1.) Call the 800 number for HP and they will send you a system restore disk for about $11 shipping included, you will need to take off the battery and with a flashlight read to them the model and serial number and wait 2 days.2.) Download Windows 8 Developers Edition and install, its like good till November 2012. You will need to download the firmware and driver updates from HP also.
