Preferred Solution: From where can I download Toshiba Assist for my Satellite L500?

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

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

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

Answer: From where can I download Toshiba Assist for my Satellite L500?

Your question is pretty general so here is my answer:
You can download it from Toshiba download page - http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com/innovation/download_drivers_bios.jsp

If you need more details please post exact model name and preinstalled OS version.

Answer:Satellite A300D-20E - Toshiba assist does not work

Hi

The error says that registry is broken? maybe some entries are faulty? who knows?
I recommend uninstalling this software firstly.

Then you should clean and repair the registry using an special tool. I use CCleaner.
Its freeware and repairs the registry entries as well.

Run CCleaner several times also after an reboot.
Then you could try to install these tools again.

Good luck

I have recently installed a new driver for toshiba assist for my A100-599, it is dated 14/2/2008.

I have uninstalled the old version and then installed the new one, I open the program and it doesnt display anything, what could be the problem?

Answer:Toshiba Assist problem on Satellite A100-599

Hi,

are you sure you?ve downloaded the appropriate Assist for your machine? Maybe you confounded the models or something. The first step which I can suggest you is to:
1. Download, install and execute some registry cleaner
2. Uninstall the Toshiba Assist
3. Repeat step 1.)
4. Install the latest version of the Assist
5. Check if it works - if not check the Driver Download site and *update* *all* *drivers*
6. If this also does not resolve your problem, come here again, maybe we?ll find some other solution

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

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

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

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

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

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

Answer:Cannot run the OS on Toshiba Satellite L500

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

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

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

Hi, I bought Toshiba Satellite L500 -00W and it came with Windows Vista. I tried to downgrade to XP, but it doesn't allow XP installation. Do you know how to downgrade?

Thanks!

Answer:Toshiba Satellite L500 -00W downgrade to XP

Hello & Welcome, toshibaquestion.

Downgrading from Windows Vista to Windows XP is actually a very easy thing to do, BUT, I must warn you; it's the smartest of ideas since Windows XP and Windows Vista differ in driver capability and efficiency. So when you want to you use your MIC or Webcam, they may not work, this goes for your Audio, Network and even Display.

Also, Toshiba's a popular brand, and also a very updated** one, meaning they'll most likely be packed with a webcam, nice wireless card, hi-def monitor, etc - meaning, lots more drivers for you to fuss about and have to replace - which, believe me, isn't fun at all.

Downgrading would require you to actually make a partition (D), then install XP on your partition (D), and then delete your previous partition (C) - This is how I would do it, but I'm sure there's many many many other ways.

Dabble into it abit, and see if you find anything interesting. I'll be here to answer any further questions you may have.

Hello!

I've bought Toshiba Satellite l500-1ef November, and until now laptop worked brilliant. Three-four weeks ago, touchpad, and some space on the left of the touchpad started to be warm. I checked CPU temperature in Toshiba PC Health Monitor (v 1.4.1.64), and it was circa 30%, with 40% use of the cooler. The temperature is incresing in time, and now, after four weeks, touchpad is warmer, and it's about 45-50% temperature od CPU, with 50-60% use of the cooler.

I'm using laptop only for Internet, work in MS Word, and listening music, sometimes I play Warcraft III on it, I've got Windows 7.

Should I go with PC to technical support, or it's normal in my model?

Best regards,
sebastian krysiak

Answer:CPU temperature in Toshiba Satellite l500-1ef

Hi mate

It?s nothing unusual that the touchpad would be warm since the CPU and cooling modules are placed near the touchpad.
So in my opinion you should not be worried about that.

The notebook?s temperature can increase after some time of usage?
This happens due to dust inside the cooling ventilators?
If you want, you can try to remove the dust using the compressed air spray?
I do this from time to time and this helps to keep the temperature on lower level?

No disply on my toshiba satellite L500,power supply led is getting on .

Answer:Toshiba satellite L500 not working, No disply

If you still get lights on the edge of the laptop & you can hear the fan spinning and harddisk clicking a bit but nothing at all is appearing on the display then it's either the screen or the power inverter that have gone. Either way it's not really something you can do yourself, take it to a technician to sort out. If you are not getting any lights, fan or clicking sound then it is a power issue - the LED doesn't necessarily mean that the power supply is ok. Again, not much you can do yourself, take it to an expert."I've always been mad, I know I've been mad, like the most of us..." Pink Floyd

Answer:Satellite Pro A120 - Where to find the Toshiba Easy Guard & Assist Button

Hi

Toshiba Easy Guard is not a single too but a collection of different notebook properties which secures your notebook.
Check this Toshiba page about easy guard:
http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com/innovation/generic/TOSHIBA_EASYGUARD_08/

The Toshiba Assist button would start the Toshiba Assist tool:

You can optimize the button in this way:
1. Launch the Toshiba Assist utility using one of the methods described above.
2. From the left hand side of the Toshiba Assist window, click the OPTIMIZE tab.
3. Within the Optimize window, click the TOSHIBA Button Controls icon.
4. Within the Toshiba Controls Properties window, ensure that TOSHIBA Assist is selected from within the drop-down menu list and then click OK.
5. Close the TOSHIBA Assist window.

Hope I've got this in the right place.

However, the sound is very poor quality - sounds "tinny"

This is applicable to CDs, radio and DVDs particularly when listening to audio books and radio making it impossible to listen to. Have tried changing the settings for the Realtek High Def Speakers, but no difference. Then updated drivers. Windows test 'sounds' are okay and sound coming from both speakers.

I think I've tweaked every available setting I can find but can't find a tweak/setting to change the sound (less bass?). I have seen the volume control and it makes no difference.

I would purchase a can of compressed air or use an air compressor (with a light gentle nozzle) and blow the dust out of the inside. If you have a failed cooling fan, then it will need to be repaired or replaced. That model I think is rather old, it may not be worth it to repair.

OK so i have just received an older laptop that im trying to resurrect.

O/S : Windows 7Model : Toshiba satellite L500 PSLS3A-04M002Battery model NO : PA3534U-1BRS
It died a few days ago and refuses to boot, press the power button -> power LED glows briefly and goes out.
As it's a smart battery you can't boot directly off the AC adaptor because it's expecting a signal over the SMBus (IIRC) power LED doesn't even light up with A/C only with the battery is removed.
I believe it's the battery.
First because i disassembled the laptop, cleaned it, and put it back together, nothing seemed wrong with other system components.
Second, it's only a small 3620mAh Li-ion that (AFAIK) hasn't been changed since the laptop was bought (roughly 2011/2012) so im thinking the charge cycles have been well and truly used up.
OK no problem, searched around online using the battery model number (above), found a replacement

Cool, battery's enroute, should be here in the next few days.

Answer:Wireless not working in toshiba satellite l500 in windows 7

For a start, turn off CAPS LOCK - it's considered to be shouting & many will ignore you.Did the laptop come with Windows 7 or have you installed it later? Are you sure there are drivers available for the wireless card - check the manufacturer's website if necessary. Some Toshiba laptops have a separate wireless switch on the front edge - if it's there make sure it is in the 'on' position. The usual key combination, as far as I recall, is Fn and F8 pressed at the same time (not F8 on its own) - there should be an LED that lights up on the front edge of the laptop when the wireless adapter is on."I've always been mad, I know I've been mad, like the most of us..."

I have a Toshiba Satellite L500 PSLS0A-019002 with Windows 7 Home Premium pre-installed that I received two months ago as a gift.

Apart from disliking some the quirky and useless (to me) Windows Vista / 7 features, as the desktop is loading I get the error message "Toshiba Service Station has stopped working" which proceeds to find a solution, but apparently never finds one because this condition repeats itself every time I boot.

On another thread in these Toshiba forums, someone suggested downloading the independent utility called Toshiba Service Station and reinstalling it. I do not see such utility listed on the downloads page for my Toshiba model. Since I don't even know what the Toshiba Service Station does (unless it goes by another name - Toshiba Bulletin Board perhaps?), I have no idea what is causing the error or how to correct it.

Does anyone have a more precise solution?

However, some and not all, CD's vibrate terribly when the drive is running at say anything over 8x's, but equally it can run at 20x's and be silent. having looked at various threads I can see lost of references to Toshiba Acoustic silencer and the ability to slow the drive may be the answer. However, I cannot find acoustic silencer on the laptop and cannot find where you can download a copy from Toshiba.

Any thoughts as to where I can find it on the new laptop and if not where I can download a legitimate copy. I say legitimate as there are lots of references to downloading it but from third party sites and not Toshiba.

regards in advance.

Answer:Satellite L500 - Where to download Acoustic Silencer?

Hi

Acoustic Silencer was available for older notebook series like for example Satellite A100.
But there is no Acoustic Silencer for newer notebook series.

But if you want you could try to install the Acoustic Silencer released for other series.
I found Acoustic Silencer for Vista 32bit.
But I?m not quite sure if you could install it on Win 7 and L500 notebook series?

You could check it but there is no warranty that it will functions?

Hi everyone,

I have problem with those two buttons on right top corrner on my toshiba r600, i just try everything and buttons not work.

I associate buttons with valid exe files in toshiba assist/toshiba button support/ register with target paths but buttons still not work,
also i check bios there are nothing that can enable/disable those buttons...etc...

all other things installed successfully such as drivers, software everything that i donwload from toshiba support page.

Any help???

My windows version is windows server 2008 enterprise sp1 x64.

THanks.

Answer:Portege R600 Toshiba button (backlight, toshiba assist) don't work

Hi

Did the buttons work with the previous OS preinstalled by Toshiba?

I think the problem is the Windows Server 2008 enterprise sp1 x64?
Possibly the Value Added Package does not support it fully?

Of course the Windows Server 2008 OS is based on Vista but it?s not the same and I think this is the problem?

Hi.

I?ve been told on this forum that I shouldn?t download anything unless I really need to but what happens when Toshiba tells me to update certain things surely I?m meant to?

Is it just Toshiba tempro that I go with if I need any alerts or does anything else let you know you need updates?
Is there anything I need to do to keep my notebook as finely tuned as possible as I don?t understand a lot so be gentle with me please.

I?ve also done my 2 Toshiba disc creator so is that me sorted if anything ever happens to my notebook?
Thanks a lot

Answer:Satellite L - Must I download Toshiba updates?

I wrote in your other thread and I just want to repeat what I wrote. You must not install ?Toshiba updates?. If preinstalled tools and utilities run well and without some errors it is not necessary to change anything.

I use my Satellite P200 almost one and half year and still with ?factory settings?. Only installed updates are from Microsoft. Nothing else.
It is very good that you have created recovery medias. This medias you can use to install Vista again if something goes wrong (virus attack).

Please don't worry about anything. Just enjoy your new ?toy?. ;)

Answer:Looking for right Satellite A50 on Toshiba download page

Hi

I don?t know what the problem is. On the Toshiba website you can find the driver download area.
http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com/cgi-bin/ToshibaCSG/download_drivers_bios.jsp?service=EU

There you have to choose the right notebook. In your case it?s Satellite A50.
Then select the right OS and you will get all available drivers.

It?s simply.

I have a Satellite C50-A-571 notebook

Answer:Satellite C50-A-571 -Two questions about Toshiba drivers download

Hi and welcome

I?m not some expert but I?ll try to offer my answers.

1/
As far as I know support page you use is offered for Middle East and Arica. I don't know where is the server placed but download should not be problematic. In the past I used it few times for drivers check and everything was OK. Maybe is there some problem with your Internet connectivity.
Toshiba support and download page is definitely not limited and can be used anytime you want.

2/
I?ve checked download page and found 33 results for Win7 64bit so I presume you want to install this Windows version.
Anyway all listed stuff are not just the drivers but also useful Toshiba specific tools and utilities. This tools and utilities control some special useful special features like special keys functionality or HDD protection.

I can just recommend you to install all of them and have full control over your machine. Of course if you don't like or don't need some of them they can be disabled or removed from the system.

I hope my opinion is useful for you. If you have more questions you are welcome.

Can anyone tell me where i can download this?

Answer:Where i can download Toshiba Disk Creator for Satellite A200-1DY PSAE3E

You cannot download this additional software.
The Disk Creator can be installed only using the Toshiba recovery CD. The software is a part of the image on the Recovery.

The point is that you have purchased the notebook with an OEM licenses and such additional software can be used only in connection with the Toshiba image.

Unfortunately but a full version cannot be downloaded. If you wan to use it on a different OS you will have to purchase it

Before sending my Tecra M9 for attention at Tosh under warranty, I took care to do a full backup onto a separate HDD.

On the PC's return I was instructed to use a recovery CD and then re-install my backup.

Most of my original software and data appears to have been re-loaded, again using the tosh assist backup software.

But the outlook express files - the most precious! - appear not to have been restored. (Nor the MSOffice 2003 suite either).

There were some outlook express dbx files I saved separately on a memory stick, and trying to get them loaded back into the software seems impossible to me.

Answer:Re: Toshiba Assist backup not transferring Outlook Exprs data

As far as i know Toshiba Assist is small platform where you can find usefull overwiev to all most important functions. There you can find shortcuts to Toshiba specific tools but also shortcuts to Microsoft tools built in into preinstalled OS.

As far as i know link for back-up there is link to Microsoft tool and Toshiba has nothing to do with functionality of this tool.

There are 3 external USB ports on this L500 modelPSLS6C-00F005. The one on the front right has developed a problem. Nothing is recognized when plugged in. An unrecognized device error pops randomly even with nothing plugged in to the front port. When the error pops the other 2 ports stop working momentarily. For instance the wired mouse I have connected to the working port will stop, then be re-detected. The trackpad always works.
While running windows 7, I fiddled with drivers, uninstalling/reinstalling USB components in device manager and I disabled the faulty device but the error returns. I found that disabling the usb hub component made the error go away. Unfortunately the other 2 ports are attached to the same hub so I lose all usb functionality.

Disabling the device in device manager seems to lessen the problem but in Windows 10 the device keeps getting re-enabled.

Answer:Satellite L500 and Satellite P200 - compatible keyboards?

Hi

In my opinion this question is for Toshiba service and not for user-to-user forum.

Anyway I think that both keyboards are not the same and you should order 100% identical keyboard designed for your notebook model.

Question is: why do you look for keyboards for old notebook models if you can order new one for L500.
On eBay you can get it quite affordable.

Answer:HDD swop from Satellite A300 to Satellite L500

Hi

Satellite A300 supports the same HDD like a Satellite L500. Both use the SATA HDD therefore the inserted HDD should work.
Its good sign, that the HDD is visible in BIOS. This means that HDD is recognized and in good condition.

I?m wondering what you have done after the HDD has been inserted.
Did you try to install the system using Toshiba recovery disk or another disk?
Did you try to format the HDD firstly?

Try to boot form the system disk and format the HDD firstly.
Then follow with system installation

I just started using my new laptop, and researching the manual from online, stated that there is something called Desktop Assist, and I can't find it.

Where have I erred?

Thanks

Answer:Satellite C50 - Can't find Desktop assist

TOSHIBA Desktop Assist is installed on computers with Windows 8 (factory installed and upgrade).

There are mutiple ways to access the Desktop Assist utility.

• From the Start screen, click on the desktop tile to view the desktop. You'll find the Toshiba Assist icon located on your desktop.
• From the Start screen press "Windows+C" keys to open the charms bar and select "Search". Type "Desktop" into the search field. Click on "Desktop Assist" from the search returns.

New Satellite P50-A09M

Just done a system restore no software loaded and get the desktop assist stopped working, is this normal or just buggy software..?

Thanks.

Answer:Satellite P50-A09M - Desktop Assist keeps stopping

>... is this normal or just buggy software..?
I have done system restore numerous times and I?ve never noticed something like this. generally speaking system restore should not have some negative influence on preinstalled Toshiba tools and utilities.
If some software doesn't work anymore there is some problem and it cannot be normal but also I cannot say it is buggy software.

On this virtual way it is not possible to say why this happen but what you can try is to reinstall Desktop Assist. I presume that latest version you can download from Toshiba download page.

I have a Satellite L500-02C and I install Windows 7 32bit from original version of 64bit to run application that wouldn't work on it. I have installed all drivers for the 32bit, but I am having trouble getting the drivers for the touchpad (synaptic) also the driver for the function keys. I have tried the Toshiba web site download from there but they don't work.

Can anyone help?

Answer:Re: Satellite L500-02C

Download and install the 32bit versions of the Toshiba Value Added Package and the Flashcards Support Utility from the L500 drivers page. 64bit version may not work.

When I ran a diagnostic report on my laptop (Satellite L500-1XL) it said that my RAM was low and to upgrade it for better performance - it has been very slow to start up as of late.
However I have discovered that my model has been discontinued and I'm not sure what to do.
Any suggestions?

Bear in mind I am a total novice when it comes to computers so nothing too technical please!
Thank you.

Answer:Low RAM in Satellite L500-1XL

With more RAM your notebook will have better performance.
According notebook specification your notebook is delivered with 2 GB RAM but it can be upgraded up to 4 GB.

So buy second 2 GB RAM and upgrade your notebook.

Answer:4GB ram use on Satellite L500/049

Hi,

Not sure if it solves your problem but try:

Go Start-Control Panel-System security -Administrative tools- System configuration-Boot - advanced options
make sure that maximum Memory option is not checked. If it's checked, uncheck, press Apply, Ok and restart.

On the spesifications of the Satelite L500-1V1 it says that there is 4096MB DDR3 RAM with 1066MHz, but why is there only 533MHz in each card?

I don't suppose you have to multiply it with 2?

Answer:RAM MHZ on Satellite L500-1V1

Hi

As far as I know the notebook has been equipped with the DDR3 1066MHz (PC3-8500) 2GB modules?
There are two modules means notebook uses 4GB RAM.

But the 1066MHz can be reached only if the FSB (front side bus) would support 1066MHz too?

I have a Toshiba Satellite L500-1XC. will it take an solid state drive to replace the hdd inside it now?
I was looking at the Toshiba 120gb stor.E comes with caddy, cables, and software to clone you old hdd, its SATA III.

IS MY LAPTOP SATA III?

Answer:Can I use SSD with my Satellite L500-1XC?

Of course you can use SSD. When you do this you will see how fast your notebook runs.
I recommend you Samsung 840 Series SSD. I use it with my Satellite notebook.

Which one you want to use is your decision.

I see that I have three Primary partitions already made on this new L500 ~
1.) 2GiB /dev/hda1 for Toshiba Recovery,
2.) 330+GiB (C:) for Vista and 3.) 12GiB /dev/hda3 ???.

I need to dual boot two windows installations and use and extended partition for Linux and Storage.

What is the third partition for and can I configure things so that I can save it within a Logical Partition ?

My aim is:

/dev/hda1 = Toshiba Recovery
/dev/hda2 = Vista
/dev/hda3 = Windows 7 ~ RC7
/dev/hda4 = Extended for all others ( including Linux, the 12GiB existing and a common storage space as well.)

Any suggestions or thoughts before I dive in ?

Regards, SnapafunFrank

Answer:Satellite L500 - What is the third partition on HDD?

Hi

The third partition belongs to Vista.
Vista creates two partitions; one a usual partition to install system and the second hidden partition for backup files. These backup files are important for Vista. Vista needs it to repair the OS if something will go wrong?

So it?s strongly recommended to leave this partition on the HDD?

I just purchased a new L500/00U, took it home, plugged it, turned it on and it has been in configuration mode with a few reboots for over an hour.

Is this normal?

Answer:New Satellite L500/00U keeps configuring

I?m afraid it is normal. Last week I got friends Satellite L500 and I have noticed the same.
To be honest I thought something was wrong with it but finally after almost a hour OS was installed and configured properly.

Answer:I want to install Win XP on Satellite L500-14F

Hi,

if you want to install Xp on your computer, you need to change Sata Controller in Bios ,,Compatible,, otherwise you will meet a blue screen during installation. It's because of AHCI drivers Then after installation, you can download and install Storage Manager and return AHCi mode in Bios. You can also integrate them into Windows disk.

I didn't use my laptop for 2 weeks and now when I try to turn it on there is no sign of life other than the power lights at the front when it's plugged in. It's not just a screen issue - there are no whirring noises or anything when I try to turn it on, I just get nothing.

So far I have tried:

A power cycle
Changing the power supply and battery with my dad's identical computer.
Removing each of the two RAM sticks one at a time, repeating the power cycle, and trying to turn on.
Disconnecting the DVD drive and turning on.

None of these worked.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Answer:Satellite L500-1XD will not turn on

Hi

> Removing each of the two RAM sticks one at a time, repeating the power cycle, and trying to turn on.

What you could try to power up the unit using the RAM modules which are used in Dad?s identical notebook.
In case this does not help, I would assume some kind of motherboard malfunction might be the reason why the notebook cannot be powered ON.

How to solve this?
I guess you have no many options; the faulty part needs to be replaced. But I think this is a matter of expense

Hello,

I just instaled Win XP on my L500-13Z but I cant find any driver for my motherboard card. It seems that it is a Toshiba motherboard called KSWAA 1.00 but I didnt find any XP driver...
Hope I'll find some help here.

Thank you

Christophe

Answer:Need drivers for Satellite L500-13Z with win XP

Hello

As far as I know newest notebook models will not be supported for WXP anymore. At some point WXP must be history and you should use newest hardware with newest OS.
Anyway, your notebook model has Mobile Intel GM45 Express Chipset and if you need WXP drivers you are on your own. Google is your friend! ;)

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

L500 suddenly started to hang on shutdown forcing manual power off sequence next morning. "Shutting Down" message visible. On power up login process sometimes fails. I have resorted to starting in safe-mode and shutting down before "starting the day" normally to be on the safe side. Nothing installed but Adobe Air upgraded.

Any one else experiencing similar symptoms?

Answer:Satellite L500 - Won't shutdown

Maybe other programs (like adobe... something) are looking for updates and blocking shutdown or maybe you have some bugs on you computer. Scan computer for viruses and some malware.

Answer:Satellite L500-1XC - Need HDD Caddy

Hi

What caddy do you need exactly?
An external USB 2.5? HDD caddy in order to connect the notebook?s HDD to an USB port?

As far as I know the notebook supports SATA 2.5? HDD so you will need an SATA USB caddy.
