I have the range of Toshiba Utilities installed including PC Health Monitor.
Every day my Event Viewer and Reliability Monitor records errors for TPCHSrv.exe and states it has stopped working. These are the only errors I get.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled but the errors remain every day and always occur shortly after startup. I had to reinstall W10 and thought that would sort the problem out but no!

I cannot disable on startup because all the Toshiba apps are grouped together at start up.

Whilst it is not causing me problems it is untidy and cluttering up error records.

Is there a fix or a way of individually disabling this on startup?

over 300 views in less than a day, that is far more than I expected, but no replies!

Does anybody know of a way of disabling this module on start up? In the start up column it is lumped together with 5 other Toshiba apps and they cannot be disabled individually but there must be a way?

Hi all,

I installed Windows 7 Professional on my system and all is great but now I am not able to install Toshiba PC Health monitor anymore as I liked it a lot. I did all I could but all the time during installation I get the message "installation failed". So when I restart I have the software running and the symbol in the task bar but it shows no results.
I tried it in running in XP and Vista mode but the same.

Any ideas

IRST means the Intel Rapid Storage technology and there is also an IRST driver available on the Toshiba EU driver page.

You should update or reinstall this driver.

Just started having problems today with my Qosmio F60-00Y, purchased June 2010. I do have extended warranty but just wanted a quick fix since system is still operational.

As I have lost my factory settings recovery I can not reset my system.
It is working fine at the moment as long as I don't open both programs Intel RST, TOSHIBA PC Health Monitor.
When I open one, system decides to freeze and fan speed accelerates and it shuts the notebook down. I have done system restore several times too and same problem still happens.

I have reinstalled both programs from:

After re-installing assuming, programs will run fine again. Same thing happens, crashes and shuts down.

I do regular virus and anti spy-wear check up with trend micro 2012 and still active every 7 days and defragment the system every 7 days.
No viruses and spy-wear found.

I updated my Satelite C50D-A laptop to Windows 10 which works great.
However when I try to check Toshiba PC Health Monitor within the hidden icons there is a small dialogue box which pops up that says "Can't get the Bios type" and the application goes no further.

Is there a fix for this to make Health monitor work again?

Why my battery show poor ?

Thank you .

Answer:Portege Z10T-A140: Toshiba Health Monitor shows poor battery


This is nothing unusual for new batteries.
You should know that new batteries need to be calibrated firstly to reach the best performance.

Calibrating means that the battery has to be charged fully and then discharged until it?s fully empty. This procedure should be repeated several times in the row. After that you can check the battery status provided by health monitor again

So i updated my F60 BIOS from 2.00 today, to 2.10

Before the update Toshiba PC health monitor said the fan would spin at around 9% at idle.

Now at idle the monitor says it is at 50%.

Thing is i can tell by listening to the fan that it isnt spining any more at idle than it did before the update?

Any Ideas Toshiba????????

I just can tell you, if the fan doesn't make a big noise and cool the system down, you shouldn't be worry.

I bought a C50D a couple of days ago and noticed that when I ran the PC Health Monitor it showed the Battery Health as Poor. I've tried a couple of full charge/discharge cycles and it doesn't seem to have improved the situation.

Is this something that is likely to correct itself over the next few charge cycles or might I have a duff battery - or is the Health Monitor not too good at assessing battery charge.


Answer:Satellite C50D - PC Health Monitor show Battery health as poor

New batteries need to be charged and discharged few times in the row to reach the best performance.

I?m not quite sure how many times you have to repeat this procedure but I recommend you to monitor the battery working time.

Of course battery working time depends on the notebook usage but you should be able to notice the improvement.

I have an A660-17T which I've had since November 2010, I've used it a fair amount but not always on battery, I'd estimate that the battery has between 10 and 20 charge/discharge cycles on it.

I updated the BIOS to v1.80 when I first got the laptop, everything seemed to be fine. Recently, within the last 2-3 weeks the health monitor software is reporting that the battery is in poor health, showing that the capacity is reduced to 40% of the original capacity. I don't believe this as when I do run on battery I get several hours usage.

I have today updated to BIOS v1.90, although there is no changelog that I can find, it just says "improved features" or similar.

Is this really a failing battery, or is it somehow that the software is incorrectly reading the value of capacity from the battery pack due to a change in Windows or some other change in the system? I can't see how a battery can run for the same amount of time it always did and actually have a fault.

Any thoughts? Should I go back to the retailer and report this as a fault, or is it worth waiting to see if a future OS or driver update fixes this?

Thoughts welcome!

> I don't believe this as when I do run on battery I get several hours usage.
That means you have the same battery remaining time as before you saw the error message from PC health monitor?!

In this case it seems that the battery is ok and maybe it?s just wrong information from the Toshiba tool. So I would recommend reinstalling PC Health Monitor that you can download from official Toshiba website: > Support & Downloads

Already after a little more than two months after purchasing this laptop, the TOSHIBA PC Health Monitor is indicating that my battery health is ''poor'' (about 1/4 health left!) and I am wondering what possibilities there are that this is a hardware defect, and whether I can get a replacement battery, and where.

Thank you in advance.

Answer:Satellite L850-1FG: PC Health Monitor indicates poor battery health


I?m not sure if its really a battery problem / fault.
Maybe the battery should be calibrated several times in the row?

First of all the battery should be fully discharged? disable the automatic stand by and hibernation mode if the battery charge level would be low.
The battery should be fully empty. Then connect AC adaptor and charge it until the battery indicator would switch to blue (or green).
Then disconnect the AC adaptor and start the discharging process again?
Repeat this 3, 4 times and then check the battery health again.

I bought an HP w2338h monitor (23") for use with my T60 laptop, but was unsuccessful in getting it properly set up. My husband had no problem plugging it into his HP laptop (all settings were fine).  The problem when it?s hooked up to my IBM laptop is the image is a bit distorted (squished) but, more importantly, when editing 2 documents, the side-by-side view doesn't show the entire page and the font isn?t legible.  So for each document, you?d have to use the scroll bars (up, down and sideways) to actually make sure you?re seeing everything (which is no better than the laptop).  Also, when my laptop cover was closed, the monitor went to sleep.  Are there particular settings on the laptopI should adjust?

today updated to win 8.1 from a one year old windows 8, everything went fine
Then I followed Toshiba recommendations for updating the tools but despite doing exactly as explained the flash cards(and the functions buttons) are not functioning, they worked perfectly in win 8!

_The only utility that fails to update is PC health monitor,_ the version installed is and the one from support site for win 8.1 is, when trying to install it fails with error message "not support"

When trying to open the installed health monitor there is also an error message "can`t get the bios type".

This is strange and every other utility recognizes the latest bios version 6.70 an the laptop`s details an serial
I tried all I could think about, installed flash card support tool from win 8, enabling and disabling in the bios, even installed VAP for win 8 but no change

Any help would be highly appreciated

I am testing my web applications on Windows 10 IE 11. I have found that the IE11 version on Windows 7 and Windows 10 is different.

Just wondering why is there inconsistent behaviour since the site is developed on IE 11 on Windows 7. I am also worried that my other web applications might have the same issue, though they are working fine on IE11 on Windows 7. Is there any test that I
should perform in addition to random checks or anything that I should take particular care or be aware about?

Last week I got a new top-end notebook (Sager NP8690 w/ LCD widescreen, nVIDIA GeForce GTX 280M w/ 1GB GDDR3) with Windows 7 Ultimate. I installed successfully four games into Windows 7, but starting games created full-screen problem for Windows 7. Game full screen did not work under Windows 7 because my mouse click is not on the game screen and the game screen looks like a square (not widescreen) - half size of the LCD screen and both side of game screen is blank. So, I disabled (by unclick the box) the game full screen in game preference option, and it worked fine after that. That was happened to Torchlight, World of Warcraft online game and Civilization 4 completed edition. Only unworkable game software for Windows 7 is DOSBOX - used for pre-Windows 95 and DOS game compatibility (Under Windows XP worked fantastic). Only game works well with Windows 7 is Defense Grid: The Awakening. Previously, all games work great on Windows XP. I am wondering if these usual error is a major bug for Windows 7, especially screen resolution, and/or game compatibility issues with Windows 7? Let me know. Thanks!

I ran Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor and followed all of the instructions to make sure my computer was ready for the upgrade. Now the installation won't run because it says I still need to delete Trend Micro Antivirus and Google Toolbar, both of which I have already deleted. I have searched my computer and deleted anything and everything that had Google or Trend Micro on it. It still won't finish. When I deleted everything, I used Control Panel> Uninstall Programs.

My computer is an HP Pavillion Media Center m8100n TV PC, Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit, 3072MB System Memory, 500GB Hard drive, 3.0 GB RAM, and an AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 5600+ 2.80 GHz.

Answer:Windows 7 Installation Compatibility Issues

Is there any reason in specific you are running the UA? As far as general suggestions, I would advise backing up your data and doing a clean install instead of the upgrade. The clean install will allow Windows 7 to run as smooth as possible and will also help if you have any future issues. I attached a few links that may help you. The first is for general media [non-upgrade media]. The second is specific for upgrade media. Also, don't hesitate about coming back if you have any issues. Just remember to search first.

I have had a 850 pro for 4 months with no issues running that i can remember. After having Win 10 beta then going to the full upgrade my SSD drive decided it would want to act up. I would get random freezes, Samsung magician telling me the drive is now on sata 2 instead of sata 3...things like that.(Drive was set for ahci mode like it said to have it) Tried to see if there was a new firmware but it was updated to the latest one i believe when i first got it. Since then i have swapped back to my old regular hard drive. Ran memory/system tests and everything i could think of but the drive just doesn't function right most of the time. I can still run windows on it but there is a bottleneck for sure.

So just wondering does anyone think it could be an issue with the drive or maybe the firmware not being certified yet for Windows 10? I can't seem to get through the process of an RMA on the samsung website or find much info besides the firmware being flaky and pulled from the website. Just strange i would have issues with it now i guess. Not sure what to do or why samsung would atleast update there firmwares more often for a possible fix.

Looking for something with a fairly specific function that I think SHOULD be common, but all my searches just return WAY too much unrelated or barely-related stuff.

What I'd like is a program I can run on remote sites, that will monitor a specific application, and periodically "check in" with a central server... then if that application isn't running, send an alert to the server, and if the server doesn't receive a regular update from the remote machine (like, every 15 minutes or whatever), it also throws an alert that the remote system hasn't checked in.

Obviously, free is wonderful, but this is a business-related thing, so there's no issue with paying for a solution (as long as it's something reasonable, I don't need high-end, full-blown enterprise-grade stuff).

When trying to print an invoice to pdf in order to email it to a customer in quickbooks premiere 2011, I get an error message that says "Printer not activated, error code -20". I close that error message and a new one pops up saying "Could not print to printer. Check your printer selection.  Printing may have been cancelled from another program". It then says "Your forms were not sent because Quickbooks could not create the necessary PDF files.  You should be able to solve this problem by exiting and restarting Quickbooks and then resending the forms again"  This does not work When trying to print a hard copy invoice to our printer, I receive the same error messages. I googled these error codes and the recommendation was to go into the properties of quickbooks and change the compatability to run with a prior version of windows.

I've recently been having trouble installing official and forceware drivers for my Geforce 8400m GS on my Dell 1420 since I upgrade to Windows 7 32-bit from Vista. When I uninstall my current drivers and reboot Windows fails to boot in normal or safe mode. Generally when I install drivers I reboot into safe mode, run driver sweeper and properly install them. Windows kept freezing at the classpnp.sys file so I changed the file to classpnp.old after some research but it started to BSOD me at the disk.sys file.

So I tried to just outright install the drivers from device manager by upgrading and I would get a message saying Windows couldn't find drivers compatible with any of my hardware. I've done a lot of homework, downloaded countless drivers, disabled aero, used mobility modder, and done just about all I feel I can do to fix this. These drivers worked fine with Vista and I really don't want to downgrade because I lost my product key and disc so that would be a pain.

Hello chribroo, Welcome to Seven Forums. You'll have to bear with us, because we'll likely advise things you may have tried, but if we don't, we won't know we are missing the answer.

I have set up 2 seagate drives in raid 0 stripe on an Intel Rapid Storage controller and would like to be able to monitor the health of these drives.

Any program that I've tried reports it as a SCSI Disk Device and offers no info.

Recently I was successful in updated the Health Monitor (which ironically the Heath Monitor recommended).

An error indicated that there was "an older version installed", and I was advised to remove it first. I did this, not have no path to be automatically advised of driver and other upgrades, including the health Monitor.

It seems the Health Monitor did not save the download file - it's not in Downloads. Does it save some other place? It did not prompt me, so the location is hard-coded, wherever it is.

I only wanted to do this because a previous Health Monitor driver upgrade blew away my touchpad driver.

OK ... you'd think I would be able to download new drivers manually, right? Alas no. My part number does not seem to be acceptable to the downloads selector on Toshiba AU selector window, and likewise there is no U model above U500 in the dropdown list of models.

So many annoyances here!

Can anybody suggest how I might get the correct Health Monitor install file for my Satellite U940?

I am running Vista SP2 Home Premium and I get a message every time I run system health reports. It says I have no Antivirus or Malware running on my system.
I have Avast 4.8 as the Antivirus and for spy/malware protection Spybot, Malwarebytes and Spyware Blaster.
For a while the security center ALSO reported no Antivirus/Malware protection. Resovled this issue by reinstalling Avast and rebuilding the /Windows/System32/WBEM/Repository folder by deleting it (temp stopping the WMI in services) and reboot.
but the health report still says no antivirus or malware programs detected.
System Center looks normal.
Been doing googling on the issue and seems that some vendors such as Norton have said this is a possible bug with both Win7 and Vista. Probably due to a bad windows update (the monthly ones). Makes since because this issue started not too long ago.
It's not a biggie but I like having my system healthy and smooth
Any other people had this happen?? If not, I recommend trying the health report (in Control Panel - Performance Info and tools - Advanced tools - Generate System Health report) for the rec I use control panel in Classic View.
you might get the same results..

Answer:issues with system health report.

Its a bug. The way to resolve it is to use Microsoft Security Essentials

I am running a fairly new 3GB P4 with 2GB of Ram and Windows XP with SP1.
I also run a full Zonealarm suite, a pipex 2meg adsl connection and DC++ Hub server software permanently on this machine.
My machine has always run very smoothly and still seems to be ok with regards to speed online and with intalled programs such as media players and games.

The concern I have is that recently my pc fans have been running at top speeds constantly even when my machine is doing very little and barely any ram or processor capacity is being used.
My fans have always kicked in when the machine is working really hard on tasks but always calmed back down once it got a rest but for a couple of weeks now it has been constant without a break and the noise is terrible.
This is making me very suspicious that my pc is doing things that maybe it shouldn't be.

Hello to all Solidworks Cad users who have made the switch over to Windows 7.

Back in January I installed W7 and nearly everything worked quite flawlessly. With the exception of two drivers &/or softwares:

1- Asus Rampage Extreme Supremfx x-fi Creative Sound Blaster driver recognition & creative audio console launcher.

Most importantly of all is...

2- Dassault Solidworks 2007 thru 2009 all service packs 0 thru 5.0 & 3.0 early visibility with 2009, install properly display properly but seem to have some bug.

The bug/issue is that you can not open any SW or other imported CAD files without causing the program to immediately crash.

Also, you can not save any files that you work with in Solidworks that are new either.

To go without the web based client sound processing software from creative is a big deal, as I like most everyone on the planet loves music.

Yet I was content to go on using W7 with it's basic plain sound, as opposed to the multi-faceted processing power of creatives' sound blaster software.

It should be noted that another thread here on Seven Forums has brought some light upon this issue.

Just this thread is titled such to make the issue more known so that Solidworks users as well as microsoft are clearly made aware of the situation.

So, that these issues can become resolved prior to the upcoming W7 RC(which is already being used...just I have not tried it out yet), as well as the Windows 7 retail version release.

Answer:Windows 7 & All Solidworks 2007-2009 CAD Compatibility Issues

I can say that Windows7 RC 7100 now opens/saves files within the SW application rather well.

And, I am now back to W7 for good.

Hi all,

I noticed shortly after installing a bunch of updates I started having compatibility issues with programs. Unless I run them under Windows XP Service Pack 2 with admin permissions, they don't work. It's extremely problematic and some prgorams I straight-up can't get to work. It's time-consuming and a headache and I want to go back to how things were before, with prgrams starting up normally with no fuss.

Sadly system restore is useless as there isn't a back-up point before it (it doesn't keep them very long apparently...) and uninstalling the updates didn't seem to do much good + Windows likes to reinstall more updates after. Admittedly I haven't tried uninstalling some graphics card and Realtek network card or w/e updates but I don't see why'd they be related.

So yeah, I'm kinda stuck here, any suggestions on how to get things back to how they were so my programs are running WITHOUT compatibility issues? I pretty much gave all the info I could think of but if you have any more specific questions that might help help me, please ask.

Thanks for your time and have a great day. =)

Hello guys;

This keyboard had the feature as showing the bullet damage, health remaning and etc. for compatible games. I've downloaded the latest driver and software for g15 from the logitech web site and in the web page, COD4 was on the list which showed the compatible games. I've installed the software and it matches with COD4. It also displays "profile activated Call of Duty 4" when I run the game. But during the play, the LCD monitor shows the clock as it is on windows xp. Is there any option for making it work or something else needed ? I'ld be glad if I get the solution.

Hi guys,

I?m appealing for some help and hope some of you experts out there may be able to help me!

My laptop is a Satellite L510 purchased November 2009
Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 32 Bit
BIOS Version/Date: INSYDE 1.30, 5/8/2009

1. ReelTime (ver: TC00210100H ? stopped working about 6 months ago so I uninstalled it.
2. PC Health Monitor (ver: TC00148300O

Value Added Package: Ver: 1.2.25 (TC00214700E)

For a couple of weeks shutting down would take a bit longer than it used to and last weekend it just shut down even though the battery was fully charged.

I had a bit of a job getting it back but I finally did, I came to the conclusion though the hard drive was failing.

I then tried to open PC Health Monitor but this error appeared ?Can't get the bios type?, and obviously wouldn?t open. I uninstalled PCHM from Programs and Features and then ran TC00148300O.exe from
C:/Program Files/ Toshiba/ TOSAPINS / COMPS1/ TOSHIBA PC Health Monitor-, it seemed like something was happening but ultimately nothing did.

I gave up then as I needed to sort out the hard drive first. Long story short, hard drive has been replaced with a SSD 840 EVO 250GB by an IT friend at work.

Answer:Satellite L510 - PC Health Monitor - Can't get the Bios Type


If you have replaced HDD I recommend you to install original recovery image and start to use your machine with factory settings. After doing this everything will be OK again. Install important Windows updates, your important software and I think everything will be OK again.

Software related issues can be sometimes very complicated. All you can try to do is to remove preinstalled application, restart machine and try to install it again.

About BIOS I can just say that you should not change anything.

One more thing: I don?t know how important ReelTime and PC Health Monitor are for you but I have removed both applications from my system. In my opinion there is no much help from both of them but they using up CPU for unnecessary processes.

At the moment my battery wear is at 50% of full capcacity according to BatteryBar
however on the health monitor it says that my battery health is good (full green).

I can only get about 1.5 to 2 hours of life out of my laptop and am just asking for help and information on whether I should buy a new battery or is there something wrong with my battery readings.

Thanks for reading this.

Answer:PC Health Monitor and Battery wear on Satellite U940

> At the moment my battery wear is at 50% of full capcacity according to BatteryBar
however on the health monitor it says that my battery health is good (full green).

The battery health shows you the battery health status and not the battery charging status.

> I can only get about 1.5 to 2 hours of life out of my laptop
The battery working time depends on notebook usage. What does this mean?
Well, running heavy performance software (games, video editing software, etc?), using bright display brightness or playing DVD movie would discharge the battery quickly.

1.5 - 2h of battery working time is not bad. But of course; sooner or later every battery needs to be replaced. It?s just a matter of time.

Hi, I’ve just inherited a desktop computer from my dad. I’m not entirely sure how old it is, but up until quite recently it’s been regularly updated to be (what I believe) was a relatively decent gaming PC. All I need to use it for is pretty basic stuff, just word-processing, internet surfing, basic photo-storage etc, and to use some sort of personal finance software on it.
I have a few issues though, not helped by my relative lack of knowledge and understanding of PCs. First issue is that it doesn’t seem to be performing as quickly as would be ideal, and I want to know if there’s anything I can do to remove some of the clutter and baggage that might be slowing it down? There are 2 users on the windows, one is myself, but the other is my dad and all of the clutter he has used it for. I really just want to get a “fresh start” as at the moment there’s loads of stuff on here I have no use for and would prefer to start again.
The second issue is that I’ve bought a new monitor for the desktop and for some reason the picture doesn’t fill the monitor, there is probably a couple of centimetre gap around the edges and no matter how I play with the setting I can’t work out how to fill it! Any ideas?
Thanks for the help, I appreciate it. I wish I understood what I was doing!

perfmon.exe /report

Now save it as "whatever.bat" to your desktop... I called mine perfmon.bat.

For whatever reason, if I put the perfmon.exe line last it would only run the first 2...???

I didnt like the first file because the command prompt window remained open after executing the batch file.. so change it to this:

I am currently attempting to install Office XP 2002 Professional and it's not happnin'. I went to Microsoft's website to determine compatibility and even installed a toolkit that still didn't fix the problem. Is this possible?

Acronis Drive Monitor is a free soft that monitors drives health and provides early alerts thus preventing malfunctions.
Acronis Drive Monitor checks disk health in the following three categories and reports deviations from normal operation to users, giving them an opportunity to replace affected drives prior to a potential total failure:
State and health of physical drive (including temperature, seek error rate, spin-up time and more than 20 other indicators) via a disk-resident monitoring function called S.M.A.R.T. (Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology) is presented in a understandable form. Acronis Drive Monitor also supports other storage, such as non-S.M.A.R.T.-compatible RAID systems, via scripts.
Critical events that may indicate an increased risk for data safety, even when S.M.A.R.T. output data shows no abnormalities. These include: logical file system corruptions on NTFS and FAT file systems, corruption of dynamic disk logical structure, failed read or write operations that might indicate faulty hardware or drivers, and Volume Shadow Copy service failures.

Last week I bought a brand new L50t-A-145 running Windows 8.1. Beautiful machine and on the face of it everything works perfectly.

However when activating the PC Health Monitor it recorded the battery as being in only "fair" condition ... which means it has "some capacity loss but it will meet the requirements of most usages". For a brand new machine this is simply not good enough ... I have a P845t which is over a year old which has never recorded the battery condition as in anything other than "good" condition.

I've done a number of things (which, I hasten to add, I never had to bother with on the P845t or indeed any other Toshiba laptop) ... (1) I have charged the battery fully and let it discharge to sub 10% at least 6 or 7 times; (2) I have uninstalled PC Health Monitor and downloaded the latest version from the Toshiba website and reinstalled it; (3) I have completely reset the computer. All to no avail ... the battery condition still shows as only "fair".

The reason I have checked out a number of options is that to me it seems there is nothing wrong with the battery ... it doesn't seem to take longer than normal to charge and I appear to get good use of the machine as it discharges ... my gut tells me there is nothing wrong with the battery.

I am not permitted to add to the previous thread on this subject ... it turns out my question is not answered as my laptop's Health Monitor has, after two days, reverted to showing the battery in "fair" condition ... since it has been showing the battery as in "good" condition I have charged the battery fully twice and always let it discharge to sub 10% ... no partial charging at all.

Anyone any bright ideas?

Answer:PC Health Monitor - Assessment of Battery Condition on Satellite L50T-A (2)

I guess you are referring to this another thread:

From my point of few the PC Health Monitor software functions properly but probably the battery is in good condition and therefore you should check with a new battery.

Before we can ascertain the true cause you need to:

Always lots of issues/problems posted but not many figured I would post a solution just incase people are having the same issue...Google doesn't come back with much so hopefully this helps a few peeps.

Server 08 isn't all that friendly when it comes to video drivers...especially the x64 version. We have been playing with it for awhile and recently had a company want several systems with dual video. Yes, most vista64 drivers work with most hardware...not Catalyst or the Dets. Guaranteed BSODs with the nvidia detonators..and the Catalysts were no better.

We got ahold of several Rage XL 8MB PCI cards as they are on the HCL for 08 x64 (old yes, but they are littered all over ebay). Customer purchased them and brought them in...nothing came up in windows update or as an embedded driver either. Not that it should work, I gave the Server 2k3 x64 driver that Intel has posted on their site for some of their server boards. Works like a champ (couldn't believe it to be honest). Recently the 8800GT has been certified to be compatible with the x64 version of server 2k8, but I have yet to test a day or so..and it sure as $hit wasn't on the HCL 2 weeks ago.

There probably won't be too many people that this is applicable to, but I figured if this post saves someone the amount of crap I went through with our good friends at MS, then great.

The HCL gets better by the day, but the video support list is HORRIBLE.

Answer:Windows Server 2008 video driver compatibility issues resolved

Never had any issues with video drivers and 2K8, so I wonder if it's not a case of hardware gone wrong or something else. I have a variety of video cards, from old ATI/Nvidia PCI cards (all the way back to Rage 128/Riva 128 chipsets), AGP (ATI Rage/Radeons of the first generation, Nvidia TNT/Geforce of the first generation), and more current ones (ATI Radeons from 7xxx on, Nvidia Geforce from the Ti series on), all the way up to a Radeon 3870 and a Geforce 8800 GTS and haven't had a single issue installing drivers for them, 32 or 64 bit flavors.

I learned a long time ago that when choosing to run a "server" OS that I'd encounter some difficulties, most notably just getting the driver installation to work because the installer would typically ID the OS as "not the one you should be running to install us" from the drivers, so then I learned to just manually install them always. As for any driver control applications (ATI Catalyst Control Center or Nvidia's stuff) I just avoid it. Not being a hardcore gamer - aside from Quake 3 madness - doesn't necessarily keep me out of the loop when it comes to what driver set can do what, etc.

And running XP x64 since it was released made me encounter effectively the same issues because of it being starved for 64 bit drivers for quite some time - those issues are null and void now as long as someone doesn't choose cheap shit no-name hardware for a low price. You get what you pay for, so the... Read more

Ok, so hi everyone again and sorry for this but yes... I just downgraded from Windows 8 and so far I'm not very happy for a few reasons (more like problems) that I really need help with... So, before I go into exposing my problem I'd just like to give some background so you know where I'm at:

Instead of doing a so called downgrade and going through all that process of contacting the manufacturer and asking for the software required I decided to go full-on cowboy and take my chances doing a clean install of Windows 7; So I booted from the disc and got some problems (which I later fixed) with the whole partitions thing (I ended up deleting all of them and having only 1 partition filled with unalloc'ed space to which I installed Windows 7 (x64 BTW)); after that I got everything going and I once again ran into some issues, this time I had no Internet Connection either wireless or wired...

Long story short, I went to Samsung's site for a product I believe is equal or at least very simillar to mine (my laptop is a Samsung NP350-V5C-S04PT) and I downloaded the x64 drivers for the wireless LAN (got that working) and downloaded the both x64 and x86 drivers for the LAN device (also got that working) I was happy! But then... More issues....

I don't understand how the registry patch update works, i downloaded and extracted the update as asked into a temporary folder but there was no install setup and i'm pretty sure i didn't install anything unless the system installed it itself without asking me. I want to know how this registry patch works and how it is installed.

And the disc creator has wasted over 15 empty DVD with the same error code 380381-26-2A030C00. I don't know what to do about it, i've tried microsoft fix it software and deleted the upper and lower filters in the registry but still, i can't burn CD's.

Help me. Thanks.

Answer:Toshiba registry patch update and Toshiba disc creator issues


I?m a little bit confused?
What Disc Creator patch do you mean?
What notebook do you have exactly?

On the Toshiba European driver page I could find some patches like recovery patch.
But this is Registry Patch for System Restore.
After downloading the zip folder, you should unzip this package? then you will find one exe file? this file needs to be unzipped too! Right click on this file and choose unzip here.
Now you should find some additional files and one of the files should be an install.exe?

However, in your case I recommend testing other disk like DVD-R from different manufacturers like TDK?
I use DVD ?R and never had any problems using such disks?

Moving over from "Am I Infected?  What should I Do?"
I have an odd issue with my computer, which has been persistent on and off ever since my AV blocked a trojanscript.iframer virus.  After cleaning out adware the symptoms disappeared for a month but recurred sometime yesterday/today.  They include:
* a lock-shaped icon that appears in my task bar whenever I reboot my computer.
*  intermittent sound difficulties, lack of system sounds when opening a file and slight audio delay when watching a video online.
* An inability to install windows updates or support system updates or view my update history.  Current error message: Windows Update Ran Into a Problem.
* When opening a browser, a delay of thirty minutes or more before it launches.
* For some reason, I can only seem to access the mobile version of google on my main chrome browser.  I can access the search engine as normal through incognito. Also sometimes it won't let me search by typing into my browser window and instead just takes me to google.
Does anyone have any idea what might be up?  Since it's apparently not malware related I don't have security worries but waiting a half hour for a fresh browser window to launch is a pain and I would like my windows updates back.

I am fixing a laptop for a friend who was expiriencing some problems connecting to the internet and general slow running of his system.

I checked internet settings to find that the LAN settings are set to "Use automatic configuration script" Address - http://localhost:9415/tudova.pac

Thats in internet explorer, in firefox connection settings:

Ive done some research on this and it seems to be linked to some chinese p2p tv streaming service.

I found that the internet settings had been set up to only connect to one DNS server, so that may have solved the connection issue, but not the malware that its ridden with!

I have a 3 month old Toshiba Satellite. A couple of weeks ago after a Windows Update it went a bit wonky, saying there were corrupt files. I ran sfc/scannow it found some things but couldn't fix them. I did chkdsk and sfc a couple more times after which it said all was okay but the Windows Update Troubleshooter thing still said there were corrupt files and I was getting the odd error and a few warnings in event viewer. Sick of fiddling with the thing I did system refresh - after which all seemed okay for a few days.

I wonder if there are any Techheads out there looking for a challenge?

I have a new Toshiba LCD HDTV that I want to use as the primary and only monitor for my Toshiba Satellite laptop.

I want to eliminate the laptops screen altogether.

I would like to know if there exists a connector or some other way to connect my laptops ribbon cable output to a VGA output and then to the HDTV via a VGA cable; or if there is a better way to go?

The screen on this 4year old laptop got cracked so I have to spend at least $75.00 for parts alone and if I go that way I might as well buy another laptop, or use a desktop with a wireless keyboard which will cost more than $100.00 to set up.

Besides, this seems like a kinda cool fix so if anyone has any bright Ideas, please respond.

Toshiba Satellite P755
Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit
While using the Internet the other day, and had the computer speakers muted, when I heard a very faint and slow-paced beeping sound.  I thought maybe it was a watch alarm buried under some laundry.  Suddenly, the volume and tempo of the beeping increased alarmingly until the computer was basically screaming.  The wireless connection was interrupted and connectivity did not automatically return.  After the wireless was interrupted, the beeping volume and pace again decreased and eventually stopped.  I turned the wireless adapter on and off a few times, and was able to reconnect after a few minutes.  This has happened three or four times.
Yesterday, the wireless bars did not appear in the system tray, but the computer with network cable icon with red X.  Strangely, I was able to connect to the Internet, but the icon did not change to the wireless bars.  Once I restarted, the problem went away.
I haven't done anything to diagnose or troubleshoot this problem.  I checked the vendor website for software updates, but everything is current.
Thanks for your time!

That is the question! I seem to spend as much time on one as on the other.

Let me count the ways:

Computer -
Updates, something daily : Microsoft, Dell, Java, Adobe, anti-virus, anti-malware, system imaging, differential backups (that surely left somethings out).
Scans, often: anti-virus, anti-malware, anti-spy

Body - daily aerobics, strengtheing every two or three days
I don't mind the body maintenance, because my body was a gift (not beautiful but serviceable) and I feel a sense of gratitude that my luck has been better than others'. I am 82yo and feel fine!

The computer, I paid for. I bought it to save me time and for communications purposes. It's good for communication. As a time saver, I think it saves more time for the IRS and the businesses that sell me stuff than it saves me.

My body has lasted a long time, and with luck and maintenance it will last a bit longer.

My computer? I don't know, but I keep getting frightening messages about buying and extended warranty.

It's been a while since I've been hardcore into the hardware aspect of things, so just for reassurance I wanted to ask here.

My girlfriend has a Dell Inspiron 6000 laptop computer, loaded with Win XP and 512mb of RAM.

I just bought a Toshiba Satellite A215-S7422 laptop loaded with 1gb of RAM and Vista (2x512). Any minute replacement ram for my computer will be arriving, which is a single stick of 2gb.

Her laptop uses DDR2 400 PC3200 200pin RAM.
My laptop uses DDR2 667 PC5300 200pin RAM.

My pair of 512mb sticks would run in her laptop, right? The speed would just be downclocked to that of what her laptop is designed for, AKA 400.

I just am 100% flat broke and the last thing I want to do is fry her computer and buy her a new laptop.

I have an HP laptop and I have been running it with dual monitors. I finally decided to upgrade to Windows 7 and after I installed it I noticed that the built in monitor of my laptop looked strange and when I opened the display settings to change the screen resolution and set the external monitor as a separate monitor rather than a mirror I noticed that only one monitor was detected and it was the external one (Generic non-pnp monitor on standard VGA graphics adapter) and the built in monitor does NOT show up at all.

I've tried the detection button, in hopes that the computer would read the built in monitor and I could fix the problem. This did not help. I tried unplugging/replugging the external monitor to no avail. I tried restarting without the external monitor plugged in and it STILL reads the built in monitor as if it is the external one. Is there anyway to fix this? I have not tried re-installing the OS, not yet anyways.

Any suggestions ?
