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: Beep beep from Qosmio X770 speakers

To be honest I?ve never heard about such issue and really don't know why this happen but if this issue happens from the first day I think you should contact your local dealer or nearest Toshiba service provider directly and ask for help.

Generally speaking preinstalled recovery image and all installed drivers are tested so I cannot imagine it is some software related issue. Contact service and ask for help. Hey should check this and fix it. valid warranty will cover all costs.

I am getting beep sounds when i turn on my dell inspiron n5010.
Nothing is showing up other than beep sounds.
Please help me out

Answer:RE: Dell Inspiron 15 - 3000 series - Beep Beep Beep Pause Beep Beep Beep

Hi Ganny,
What are the exact # of beeps in a cycle? 
Kindly review this chart and see page# 47 - it will help isolate the source of the issue. 
Based on the exact # of beeps, that part would need to be replaced.
Also, please click my DELL-username and write me a private message with the service tag and your Name for case records.
Let us know if you have any other queries.

My laptop here is a Dell Inspiron 15, 3000 series. 
The laptop itself works perfectly fine, I am able to get into windows (which I installed myself, it originally came with Ubuntu). 
Occasionally though, it will do a BEEP BEEP BEEP PAUSE BEEP BEEP BEEP PAUSE (repeats).
This happens on boot and sometimes when I am using it. Sometimes it turns off suddenly when I am shifting the computer around. It's extremely loud.

What is causing this? The sound seems to be coming from around the area the Memory banks are under the laptop, but nothing seems to suggest that anything is wrong.
I took a suggestion and used FN+Power to do Hardware Diagnostics which said nothing is wrong.

What else can I try?


Answer:Dell Inspiron 15 - 3000 series - Beep Beep Beep Pause Beep Beep Beep

I’d suggest that you follow the steps mentioned below and check if the beep pattern repeats.

Switch off the computer.
Disconnect the AC adapter from the system.
Remove the battery from the computer.
Press and hold down the power button for 15 seconds.
Then connect back all the peripherals and check if the beep pattern repeats and reply us with the beep count.

If you still receive 3 Beeps on the system then it indicates System board failure.. You will have to replace it on the laptop.
Please let me know the findings.

I understand that this means there is a system board error.  I have a very good reason to believe that the BIOS had an issue (when I checked it before this happened, it had 75 boot options listed and said the volitale memory was almost full). Question: can I somehow force the BIOS to reset itself?  Is there a pin short I can use for this? Of course I am 2 weeks out of warranty :/  I assume if I sent it in they would just charge for a boarsd swap... likely $500-$600 dollars. Thanks for any help!

Answer:X230 1 beep, 3 beep, 3 beep, 1 beep, no screen: can I reset the BIOS?

1-3-3-1 means no memory. If you have 2 DIMMs, try with just one, then just the other. When you try with just one DIMM, it needs to go into slot-0. When you have the machine sitting lid-down and the battery compartment away from you, slot-0 is the one on the right.

My X230 gets very little use since I bought it in 2012... sometimes no use at all for weeks at a time. Yet the system board failed, as did a replacement, and now the third board seems to have failed. On startup I get 1 beep, 3 beep, 3 beep, 1 beep and a blank screen. I tried the existing RAM stick in both slots: no startI bought and tried a NEW stick of RAM from Crucial in both slots: no startI tried both sticks in the slots at the same time: no start Other than another bad system board, what could it be? Where can I get a system board that might last? By the way, at the same time I bought the X230 I also bought a T530 that gets gallons of heavy use almost every day and never had a problem that I didn't cause myself.

Hi, I have been using the Y480 for almost 2 years. However, when I boot up this morning, it just beep beep beep continously. and the screen just have a cursor blinking. But after I reboot again and press F2 to enter bios, and then quit bios settings, the notebook can be boot up successfully. I have backup everything I need What should I do to fix the error? Is my harddisk gonna be failed? I have lost all the purchase receipts but I have registered 2 years ago. Thanks!Peter

Answer:Y480 continous beep beep beep during startup

Beeps are error messages from the Motherboard. Either the MOBO is failing or you have a problem with your RAM, I dont think it is related to your HDD, but you should create a backup. Also, if you don't have, please create recovery disks immediately. You may want to do more research depending on the BIOS manufacturer and the beep codes. You can google these terms and you should find information on the procedure to validate this. You can also try to re-seat the RAM, maybe it got a bit unsettled, if you moved the laptop. All in all, if you took the externded warranty and you are still under it, you may want to send the laptop to Lenovo for repairs.

When I plug external speakers on my Qosmio x770-135 the internal speakers don't turn off.
Can someonee help me?

Answer:External speakers do not turn off Qosmio x770 speakers

You may check the Realtek HD Audio Manager in the Control Panel.
In the top right corner, there's a little yellow folder called "Connector Settings?.
There, you could enable the setting "Enable pop-up dialog, when device is plugged in".
Now when you plug in an external speaker or headphones, it pops up and I select the option "headphone" (instead of "line-in"), and then the sound comes out only through the headphones/ext.speaker.

How do you use your Qosmio's speakers? You select Full Range Speakers (Front + Left) and Dolby?

How we can have the maximum out of our laptop's sound system?

Answer:Sound on Qosmio X770 - How do you use your Qosmio's speakers?

i have actually checked it out of curiosity

even if you route your audio in windows (so called "software routing") through 2.0 (just left and right speakers), the subwoofer will still be working properly as there is a hardware "crossover" device inside of the laptop that routes the audio stream first through the woofer (but just a narrow band from like 0Hz to 200Hz or something) and then the rest is being routed through to the actual tweeters (high frequency speakers, or in this case 200Hz-high)

i would actually advise to use 2.0 configuration over 2.1 (stereo+subwoofer in windows) because 2.1 would mean you are using two frequency crossovers - the hardware one mentioned before and then another one inside of windows - and i am 100% sure their crossover frequencies are not the same, so you migh end up losing (or making it sound "muddy") some sound in the process

hope this was clear enough, if not i dont mind explaining this again

Is there any way to disable on board speakers when the line out is used.

Currently if I plug in a cable to the hadphone socket and choose lineout on the realtek control panel, the sound is output to the line out as expected but also through the internal speakers.

Is there any way to stop this, and only have sound going out through the line out?



Answer:Qosmio X770-11C - how to disable on board speakers when using Line Out?

If you want to hear sound on headset only you must choose ?Headphone? option.
Disconnect cable and connect it again. When you see small window on the screen where you can choose between headphone and line out options choose headphone and you will hear sound on external device only.

In case you have disabled this popup dialog you can activate it manually. Open Realtek manager connect external device and when you see activated black point on the right side make double click there and change settings.

They vibrate quite heavily when sounds go really high, low or loud in pitch. It makes a rattling/ distortion sound.

When I open the disc tray it slightly makes the issue go away. This leads me to think something is loose within the laptop?

Can anyone help diagnose?

It's no throttling, but that too is annoying.

Answer:Are Harmon/kardon speakers on my Qosmio x770-11c damaged?

If the warranty is valid why you don?t contact nearest authorized service provider and ask for ?diagnose?.
Here in forum on this virtual way it is not easy or almost impossible to offer exact diagnose.
Contact service, explain the situation and ask for help. They can check this, open the notebook and fix speakers if there is some hardware problem.

In the past I had two Qosmio notebooks and the speakers were really amazing.

Is the beep pattern just one short one long? Check your manual for the POST beep codes to determine what it is telling you. All POST beep codes are different so there's no way to tell unless we know exact model of your PC. The manual usually has the beep code in it, though.

Answer:CPU fan is working for few seconds and stoped then a long beep and 2 short beep

Hello, Your reported T61 bios beep codes would indicate you have one of the following failures: System boardLCD assemblyDIMMThe DIMMS would be my first choice to test so, if you have more than one DIMM installed, try  try removing one of them and try to boot, if OK, you have removed the bad RAM; however, if the results are the same, remove the other DIMM and install the one you removed previously. If you can boot OK now, you have isolated the bad RAM. Now, if you can't boot with either stick, then, I guess the RAM is not the problem (unless you have two bad sticks and I doubt that). See the  Memory Removal and Installation Guide for more information. Good luck!

A few times now my E5440 will give a low beep... then a few seconds go by, and another beep.  It just happened a minute ago - only two beeps this time.  But I think it happened a few days ago and beeped several times with the same pause of a few/several seconds in between the beeps.  It's so quiet that before I've thought I was imagining it.  But this time I was sitting in front of it typing.
There are no pop-up notifications on the screen anything is wrong, such as the 'disconnection' sound when you remove a portable HDD, or your Wi-Fi disconnects.  Nothing to indicate what the beeps mean.  The laptop is working perfectly.  Battery is fully charged.  I can hear the fan turning and changing speed but it's 2:30am here with no outside noise and I can barely hear the fan.  (I assume it would be spinning up like crazy if something were overheating.)

Can anyone help?

Many thanks


Answer:Qosmio G10 - continuous beep on start up

I think there is a problem in the hardware configuration.
Did the laptop receive a shock recently?
The laptop beeps because the checks of the bios detected an anomaly.
What you can easily do is to check that at least the RAM is correctly inserted in its place. It happened to me once: I did not inserted correctly the additional RAM that I added, and the laptop beeped loudly!
If it does not solve the problem=> toshiba service.

3. screen

Answer:2G Graphics card upgrade...Beep! beep!

It's possible you need a new PSU.

The TDP on that card is only 27 Watts and it doesn't require a hook up so I would think your current PSU could maybe support but I wouldn't risk it. There is also the possibility that the motherboard you have isn't providing enough power to the card.

You could try to re-seat the card or clean out the PCI express slot and see if that helps.

The beep sound of illumination buttons you can disable in BIOS (BIOS setup > Advanced > System Configuration). There is an option called ?Beep Sound?.

Generally speaking you can also disable all illumination buttons in BIOS, after this you will not see such shortcut buttons anymore but only disabling the icons only is not possible.

Hi, I'm having a problem with my microphone thats build into my laptop, I was hearing this wear beeping noise coming out of my speakers ( not the default laptop speakers) and I was really getting annoyed... Because at some random point I would hear a faint 'Beep Beep'. So I look for a solution on the internet could find one... But it stopped to I didn't care. (It didn't really just thought it did)... So then I was talking to my friend on teamspeak, he was saying YOUR MICROPHONE IS SOO BADDD!!!! (lol) And I didn't know what was up, So I did some playback, and it was ECHOING AND ECHOING AND SCREECHING!! So I thought my speaker where at fault (There really close to my laptop inculding the bass) But no matter how low I turn the speakers down there was still some level of echoing.

Answer:Qosmio X300 - How to disable the beep-sound of the Multimedia keys?

You must enter BIOS and search for option name something like BEEP SOUND or something similar and change to DISABLED. I can't tell where exactly this option is, because my laptop is away from me ;)

Emachines computer speakers making loud beeping sounds. It lasts for a few seconds before it stops. It doesn't happen all the time, just every now and then. It sometimes happens exactly when a cell phone is about to go off in the same room, but I don't know if that has an relation. I recently cleaned out the computer, but its been going on for sometime. I tried ignoring it, but now I thought it was time to look into it. I'd just like some help figuring out what's going on. It seems to happen more often when I try to play games on my computer. Specifically an online game that I noticed so far. WoW or World of Warcraft if the specific name helps. I know that's not the cause, it just seems to happen quite a bit when I'm playing and I'd like to know what the relation is. It's not even a sound I heard from my computer, out of all the sounds it makes, it's just a repeatedly loud beeping noise.

Answer:Emachines computer speakers making loud beep

If the beeps accompany game play I would suspect the sound is an alert that the computer has reached a preset temperature. Boot into the BIOS and look at the setting for those values. May be labeled PC Health or similar.Did the sounds start AFTER you cleaned out the computer case? If so, you may have dis something. Did you remove the heat sink/fan from its mounting?

Good afternoon,I'm having trouble with my windows vista computer.  When I start it up, nothing appears and there is a beep noise.  It goes beep beep then there is a 3 second pause then another beep beep.  I don't know how to fix this and any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you.

Answer:Windows Vista Beep Beep

These "Beep codes", as they're called, are to notify you that the Power On Self Test, or POST, has failed. The number and sequence of beeps is generally to identify which component failed, but without knowing the manufacturer, specifically the BIOS (Basic Input/Output System), it would be difficult to determine what the beep code is identifying as the problem component. For a successful Power On Self Test to take place, the following components must be working:BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) CPU (Central processing Unit) or processorPSU (Power Supply Unit) Video Output device (Graphics card)RAM (Random Access Memory)If any of these fail, your computer will not power on properly, and may exhibit symptoms like what you are describing. Generally, the first step in fixing a computer that refuses to start up is to isolate components that may be causing the problem. One thing to try would be to clean the internals of your computer (Warning: be sure power is turned off to your computer before working on internals!) and to reseat components like RAM, peripheral cards (such as your graphics card), etc.. If you do not feel comfortable doing this, you may think of taking the computer in to a reputable shop- most places that are reputable would not charge or would charge very little to clean and reseat a couple components. Chances are that the problem component is either RAM or Graphics card, these components tend to fail or require service faster than others, and may als... Read more

Hi, Today I replaced my old graphics card with a new GeForce 9500GT and also added a new Kingston 2GB Ram Card. I installed both of them then restarted the computer, since then it has only powered on and playing 1 short beep then 1 long beep. I've tryed everything I can think of ranging from taking out everything new and putting it back to before I added the new items to completely taking out all 3 RAM sticks and reseating them. I'm not sure how a brand new unopened 2GB ram stick that fit perfectly and a brand new right out of the box graphics card can cause a problem like this. I've been through the ins and outs of the internet trying to find a solution but nothing has worked. Hoping someone can think of a unique way to fix this or how it could have possibly happened in the first place. I dont buy anything used everything placed inside my computer was/is brand new when it was purchased. Any help/comments on solutions would be greatly appreciated thanks.

Answer:One short beep, one long beep

Is it possible you are hearing 1 long - one short?
That might indicate a BIOS CHECKSUM error, depending on the brand of BIOS.

You can try a ClearCMOS procedure (CLRTC is the same thing):
Note all your current BIOS settings
Shut down the computer > remove the power cord.
Remove the 3v motherboard battery.
Move the CLRTC jumper from pins 1-2 to 2-3.
Touch a metal part of the case and Press and Hold the reset button for approx. 30 seconds to discharge all power from the board.
Put the CLRTC jumper back on pins 1-2.
Replace the 3v battery > replace the power cord > boot.
Immediately go back into BIOS and reset all your preferred settings. If the CLRTC worked you will need to reset the date and time.

I just had a "search engine redirect issue" fixed by "Gringo." One thing that is different now is at windows start-up, this laptop makes a BEEP TIC (Higher in frequency than the BEEP) vs the BEEP BEEP sounds I've had for ever. The computer start-up sequence is very slow as it takes minutes before the computer is ready to be used.

During the virus removal, a few times the reboot start-up sounds were BEEP - TIC - BEEP (again the TIC was higher a higher tone and faster than the BEEPs). What do the different sounds mean?

It could be that your Pc is overheating.If it has been with you for a while then dust gets stuck in the heat sink of the procesor and on its fan this makes the fan go slow and that causes the overheating.Ifyou know a little about Pc then switch off the PC at the mains take off the side pannel of the tower and look on the mother board for a small fan, you could put a vacuumm close to the fan and this may take out the dust, if not you will need to take off the fan to clean the heat sink

Question: Beeeep, beep beep

I just got new asus AM2 mobo and I'm getting beeps on start. 1 long beep and two short. Somewhere I found it is related to video card. I'm not sure if that's true, but I know videocard is functional and inserted correctly.
The mobo has it's own video, so I tried using only that, same thing. It just doesn't seem to make sense.

Answer:Beeeep, beep beep

One long two short looks like a video issue, as you said. You say it is also happening when you remove the graphics card and try to boot up with the onboard graphics?

Here's what I'd do:

Remove the motherboard from the case and set it on a box beside your case. Next, reset cmos (check your manual to find the cmos jumper pins).

Remove everything from the motherboard except:

cpu with heatsink/fan
one stick of ram
power supply connections to the motherboard (should be two)
connect the case's speaker to the motherboard

Then use a screwdriver to quickly touch (short) the two pins that usually connect to your case's power on switch.

See what kind of beeps you get.

If you still get the beeps, my guess is your need to RMA the board, but please post your system's full specs (including your power supply specs)

Good luck!

I just got a strange reaction from my pc. It was working fine last night, I went to start, turn off computer, shut down and went to bed. I got up this morning and I saw a notice on the screen (PC did not shut down during the night) It said there was a change to the global template for microsoft word and did I want to save changes so I said no and the pc shut down. Later on I tried to call up my key logger and heard a beeping noise from within my pc. I paid it no attention and went on the rest of the day working. I was using Quicken later on and noticed that when I tried to view certain graphs they seemed to be "fluttering" (The page seemed to go up and down rapidly on its own) I closed it and ran Avast antivirus scan. I tried to activate it and got an error message that said it ran into some kind of runtime error (I think) I finly got it started, ran a scan and came up empty of viruses. Then Avast kept shutting itself off. I emptied my waste basket, went to internet options, deleted all files and history (Including online content) then cleared all in Firefox. Next I went to start, run msconfig, start up disable all, restart, back to start, run, msconfig, enable all, reboot and everything seems to be fine now.

Ok, the other day my girlfriends brother gave me a Compaq Presario V2000 laptop. He said he couldn't get windows to boot up, all it did was start to load and after a few seconds it would start running CHKDSK with a blue screen, but once it got to step 3 it would say it was complete, but wouldn't go any further or boot windows up.

So yesterday I decided to mess with it, and it did what he said it did. So I tried to booted it into SAFEMODE and it wouldn't. So I restarted it and pressed ESC and ran a Hard Drive Self Test and got an 07 FAIL. After that I restarted it, and all I got was a black screen then it made a loud BEEP sound fallowed by a REALLY LOUD BEEP, then it did nothing.

Does anyone know what the problem is?

Probably a bad harddrive.

Youd better hope they had their information backed up...

What you can try is hooking it up to another PC as slave and see if you can get any data off of it, but they will likely need a new harddrive and OS.

Answer:to beep or not to beep(that is the question)

Hi SLAYER. Although I've read that some motherboards don't have a POST beep, I personally haven't come across one. The most likely cause of no beep is that there isn't a connection between the case speaker and the motherboard. Possible causes that immediately come to mind are broken wire or the speaker connector doesn't match the motherboard header pins - possible one is wired for 3 pins and the other for 2 pins. If the motherboard connection is correct, remove the socket from the header and touch a 1.5V battery to the connector. You should get a distinct clicking from the speaker.

Well, the HDD controller is a part of the motherboard and if the motherboard does not support such 2nd controller, you will not be able to add this?

> If i want to use the Recovery, it only works with the Original Configuration of Hard Drives, is there any way, to fix that?

Possibly this does not work because the SSD drive has an different size? the point is that recovery disk formats the HDD and creates the partitions again?possibly the reason is the difference in the partition sizes.
In such case you would need to use an clean Microsoft Windows disk to install the windows system.
Necessary drivers can be downloaded from the Toshiba page.

Jos Sallets, Belgium

Answer:Qosmio X770-116 - can i upgrade CPU to i7

On this forum we have discussed many times about COU upgrade. To have better performance many people want to upgrade CPU. CPU upgrade is not supported and each notebook model is designed, especially cooling system, to run with certain hardware platform.

Generally speaking Qosmio notebooks have the best hardware with excellent performance so I don?t know why do you think about CPU upgrade. In my opinion you should upgrade RAM and HDD. It is supported and can be done by notebook owner without losing valid warranty.

Upgrade RAM to maximum and upgrade HDD with SSD and you will see big difference. You will be surprised how fast your notebook is.

I?ve done it on my notebook. It runs perfect now. Think about all this.

Hi All

Please help me here. i have just purchased the Qosmio X770-107 Laptop, and I have set up the 3D as per the Nvidia settings. Now I am trying to get the 3D movies to play. On the laptop it has a few sample clips (movie trailers), which I am trying to watch to get the 3D to work. The Nvidia comes with a sample slide show, and the 3D graphics work perfectly with the supplied glasses.

Under the User Manual, Toshiba states that one must use the pre-installed "Toshiba Video Player", which supports the 3D playback. I have opened that and and changes the settings under 3D to the L side and R side playback, to convert to 3D. It cannot be the glasses or display drivers as I mentioned above, the Nvidia supplied slide show works perfectly.

But the problem then comes in as the sample clips do not open in that player. The clips only open up in Windows Media, but then it has a LH screen and a RH screen. (I hope this makes sense).

Is there anyway of opening these files in the Toshiba Player to enable the 3D playback? I do not want to go out and waste money buying 3D games and movies if I cannot use it on my Laptop.

I have googled for help etc but to no avail.

Answer:Qosmio X770-107 - 2D L&R converting into 3D


First of all the 3D gaming and 3D blu-ray is supported? you can read here in the forum about this theme. Of course 3D needs the supplied glasses.

Here is a nice doc from Toshiba about Toshiba Blu-ray Disc Player and the 3D settings.

The Toshiba Video Player can be used to play 3D content and to convert 2D into 3D.
As far as I know it set by default to 2D so you have to press 2Dto3D conversion in order to get 3D. DVD videos and DVD-VR and files like mp4 are supported and depending on the video content it might be not possible to play this in 3D.

Note: also the WinDVD BD for toshiba is preinstalled. This is different software and it can be used only for Blu-ray playback! If you want to play other content (DVD), you have to use Toshiba video player.

By the way: there is an update for Toshiba Video Player on toshiba European driver page: video player v check if you can run this update.

question 1: wondering if there was a way to remove the 3D part of this laptop, disable, uninstall? never going to use, and i hate that it automatically enable itself when starting up games.

question 2: is there a way to turn off the red light on the keyboard?
it's kinda using unnecessary power now that am using a wired keyboard with my 42 inch led tv.
and if there are anything else i could turn off to make my laptop less prone to overheat, while playing games.
Am using a cooler plate, but it's really not helping at all.

and the final question: played guild wars 2 beta, the fps is shockingly unstable on low settings, i mean.. this laptop is a powerhouse for a laptop, that can't be normal? am running the latest nvidia drivers.
all drivers are up to date.
Could the hardware be damaged? I've had an incident were i was watching a movie, suddenly the screen froze flickering with red lines and squares, had to turn the laptop off using the power button.

Answer:Few questions about Qosmio x770

1.) Go onto Nvidia control panel and disable it from there.

2.) Yes there is. Press and hold 'FN' key, then press the 'z' key. ON, OFF OR on a timer are available.

3.) It's unlikely it is damaged. Are other games fine? It is a beta remember. They do test on varies laptops, drivers, bios combinations. What a beta is for. You could try downloading some beta nvidia drivers as in the descriptions it gives examples of fixes specific games (which is kinda cool)

"Fixed instances of very low frame rates in Deus Ex: Human Revolution (DX11)" etc etc

I have a Toshiba Qosmio X770-116, PSBYSE-01N013BT, serial no 8B088257K.
Windows 7 Home Prem is installed.

Usually when I stop working, I shut-down or I use the normal sleep.
The option was there to choose also deep sleep, which I wanted to try.
Sadly enough my portable does not want to wake up anymore.

When I push the power button, I can see the light of the power button (red) and hear the ventilator.
Besides this: nothing.

I read on the internet that there are a lot of problems with the deep sleep.
One of the tricks was to remove the battery and the RAM for 30 minutes, but that did not help for me.

Can anybody help me with some tips ?


Answer:Qosmio X770 does not wake up

With deep sleep you mean hibernation mode, right?

Hi Guys,

ive got a little problem, not extreme, but little.

In the Factory Default i press the FN Key, and in the upper Field of the Desktop diplays the Bar with the FN-Options.

Now, i dont know why, this function is disabled.. the FN-Keys works normal, but the bar never shown again.

Maybe Display Driver?? its the NVIDIA-Reference Driver from the NVIDIA-Homepage.

May you help me??

English is not my Motherlanguage. :)

Answer:Qosmio X770 - No FN-Bar in Windows 7


The FN bar is called Flash Cards
The Flash Card Support Utility controls these FN buttons.
You can restart the Flash Cards easily: All Programs -> Toshiba -> Flash Card Support Utility -> Restart Flash Cards ;)

Hi guyz,

i have had bad experience with qosmio before, atm i m looking for new machine. i like to ask about whats ur opinion about Qosmio x770-107.

Also, dont mind suggestion for other notebook too which works fine.

Answer:Your Opinions about Qosmio X770-107

I bought qosmio X770 for its specifications. This is my first toshiba computer and probably if I am ever going to buy a gaming computer I will NOT choose Toshiba.
If you are buying a gaming laptop check that it has regular updates for all its components.
I would not recommend Toshiba, Asus, MSI for a gaming computer. All have issues.
I am not sure about Alienware or those other highend little known brands as I didn't have those ones.
Seems like gamers are just limited to big "cans" on their tables.

I am just disappointed with all so called "gaming" laptops lately. They are just money magnets for fools like us to buy them.

Investigate those new ones AMD fusion laptops. low price good performance.
If you have tons of money get some custom built laptop with 24/7 customer support which gives a damn about their customers.

I have a Qosmio X770 with two 4GB RAM modules installed but the system details show that the total system memory is 4.00GB RAM.
It also shows only 4 processor cores when there are 8 shown in device manager.

If I take out either RAM module, the system still shows 4GB RAM.
Either chip in either slot shows up as 4GB but nothing I do can get the system to show 8GB.

What is going on?

Answer:Qosmio X770 - 4GB RAM not shown


I assume you are using Win 64bit…

The 64bit OS is able to handle more than 3.2GB RAM… so probably the issue is related to wrong settings in the msconfig.
Go to msconfig (in search type msconfig)

In the “BOOT” tab click on the “Advanced options” button.
Then Uncheck the Maximum memory box and click OK

Then the max memory limit should not exist.

I have X770-11C and I cant Use Wi-fi. The Bar with the signals show "X" and when I try to establish a new connection it asks to switch it with the Fn key or with the manual key on the front side of the laptop.

There is no button or key anywhere on this laptop so I try to use FN F8 and it does not work.
Where Can I try to switch wi fi on?


Answer:Qosmio X770-11C - Wi-Fi without connection


The wi-fi switch is the touch button (second button - after the Eco mode button).
When you press it, it should show an icon in the middle of the screen with 'on' or 'off'.

When it's ON, if you still see the "X" use FN + F8 to switch your wifi or bluetooth on.

Hi, (yes I'm another who has joined this forum when only in need)

About an hour ago I dropped my Qosmio X770 to the floor it conspired to land on it's front (with the lid open) thus causing some infuriating superficial damage. Then when I picked it up I could hear the hard drive beeping and the system had froze. I immediately in anger turned it off and proceeded to get myself into a state where I can't believe I dropped a near ?1,500 3 month old laptop. Gutted.

Upon reboot it told me that it couldn't find a somewhere to boot from. I took the bottom off and set about hooking up my hard drive to an external reader thing that there was in my house. The part solid-state drive, didn't spin up at all and just started beeping at me.....

The other HDD sounded normal but was protected so couldn't see any data.

Everytime I booted up my laptop I was told to create a recovery disk, which of course I didn't. So now I am in a panic.

Where do I start? Can I use the other partition at all? I am really down in the dumps right now. A sense of dread has descended upon me.

Help me mighty forum.


Answer:Dropped my Qosmio X770

Well, I can understand how do you feel at the moment. it's not a feeling that anybody wants to feel.

Anyways, my answer may not be helpful but I will try my best. Since everything else works properly; the screen and the motherboard are the most important parts to worry about, the problems is then well defined. The worst thing you may do is to replace your primary hard disc, which is pretty expensive I know. You can also order the recovery media from Toshiba for free during the warranty period (still not sure about this). You may also have made yourself a recovery disc when you first got your laptop, this will save you ordering it from Toshiba guys.

I hope everything works good for you.

ive bought the X770-107, and i want to change the First HDD, but i dont know how to remove the first HDD..

A Cable is over the first HDD leading to the 2nd HDD Controller.

I want to change it, with a SSD 160 GB .. Does somebody know, if i can remove the two screws over the 2nd HDD Controller to remove the First HDD??

Sry, my english is a little bit rusted.

Answer:Change HDD in Qosmio X770-107


As far as I know before removing the main HDD you have to remove the 2nd HDD which is placed near the CD/DVD drive.
After removing the HDD cover at the bottom of the unit, you can remove the 2nd HDD by pulling the tab attached to the HDD.
To remove the main HDD, you have to remove the HDD board firstly.
The HDD board is secured by one screw.
After the screw has been removed, you should be able to remove the HDD board.
Then remove the main HDD by pulling the tab attached to the HDD.

But be very very careful? and don?t use force in any case.

Have just did an upgrade but it was a clean upgrade ( keep nothing etc ) . Didnt check here first which was silly but now want to get my laptop running smoothly. Surprised that there are no win8 drivers available so should I download and use the win7 #64 bit # drivers ?

Or does win8 supply decent drivers of its own ? Should I use the 560m 64 bit win8 drivers from the Nvidia site or just leave the ones that win8 put in?

Laptop is running but its not smooth and gaming is not good.

What drivers do I need to get it going smoothly ? Also I guess the win7 64 utilities and other toshiba software will work ok ?

Answer:Qosmio X770 and Windows 8

It's better to use Win8 drivers since many of the Win7 drivers/utilities are not compatible with Win8.

Why does the Qosmio x770 only have one partition ? the harddisk is 500gb,as this laptop is presented as
also a gaming laptop.
Can i safely repartition this drive,if so idiot proof help would be greatly appreciated.

Answer:Qosmio x770 why only one partition

You can add easily another partition or you can change the existing partition as well. But before doing this I recommend creating an Toshiba recover disk as mentioned in user manual.
The point is that HDD partition modification can affect the HDD recovery and in worst case you would not be able to get access to HDD recover option.

However, to create new partition click right on Computer -> Manage -> Disk Management
Here you can shrink the partition and can use the free space in order to create another partition.

I'm having troubles getting my webcam working.

I reinstalled the latest driver from Toshiba a couple of days ago, and it worked for a couple of minutes. The day afterwards I clicked on the icon again, and nothing happened. Worse, the icon for the webcam software also disappeared.

this threat is just to report out my completed upgrades for the x770-116 model so it might help other people.
first upgrade was putting an ssd in, the -116 comes stock with only a harddrive which means it only has 1 functioning hdd bay.
to make the upgrade possible youll need to install part::zekhv8AC which can be hard to come by in the EU.

Next off I started working on the overheating issues, fist step was to replace the horrific stock thermal grease with artic mx-4 for both cpu and gpu, be carefull however. This grease can cause problems in the ellectrical circuit when used too much as was the cames with mine, I cleaned the gpu transistors with alcohal after which it worked fine. This summer I started having trouble when my room reached 30 degrees celcius, my cpu was overheating to about 90c. When I last disassembled my laptop I noticed the cpu heatsink of the cooler was smaller then other models, so I bought a x775 heatsink which has a bigger heatpipe and my cpu temps dropped with about 11c! So this might be a solution for people with overheating ci5 model x770s.

Being quite happy with the new performance I did however notice the cpu load was almost constantly on 96% while playing GTA5, I did some research and could'nt find a reason why an upgrade to ci7 processor would work so I bought a second hand one for ?70- the core i7 2630QM.
