Satellite A200-195: TOSHIBA Flash Cards "black and white cards" not working

Question: Satellite A200-195: TOSHIBA Flash Cards "black and white cards" not working

Wondering if anyone can help me.

I recently just rebooted my Satellite A200-195.

I found that my flash cards for my ?FN? hotkey function buttons have disappeared and do not pop up on top of the screen anymore.
However I am able to press the other function buttons on the keypad F1 - F8, part from the one that enables the mouse?F9?.

I have already uninstalled and installed the Value Added Package, Flash support utility and even tried to update the Bios but it seems my Bio is already the newest version.
After all this I seem to be able to enable my mouse pad ?F9? but my other function buttons are not working anymore and the flash cards still are not appearing like they use to.
Is there anything I can do to get my flash card to pop up back on screen without having to set my laptop back to factory default?

Have you tried to restart Flash cards?
Start > All programs > Toshiba > Utilities > Restart Flash cards.

What you can also try is to install ?Flash cards support utility? if you can find it on Toshiba download page.

I have a Toshiba A200 1s5 notebook with Vista Home Premium preinstalled. c2d [email protected], 2GB RAM.

The problem is that flash cards utility is very slow. It takes quite a lot of time from when I press the FN button until the cards appear. Plus the entire utility runs slow. Sometimes it won't even appear. I understood you really need these flash cards to use the function keys without which they won't work.

Is there any known issues with this utility or should I just try reinstalling it? I have this problem since I bought the notebook and I never did a reinstall or a recovery. So all the software that came with it is original.

Excuse my bad English.

Answer:Satellite A200 - slow flash cards

Hello

It is known that previous version is pretty slow. Toshiba has offered new version and now it works fast. Please remove preinstalled Value Added Package and install latest version that you can find on Toshiba download page.

It is strange. On Toshiba download page under http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com > Support & Downloads you can find drivers for Vista 64-bit.
Windows 7 is still in beta phase and still not available on the market. So support is still not started for it. To be honest I don't believe some other notebook manufacturers have started with Windows 7 support.

Hello

You know Flash Cards is transparent and moving flashy when pressing FN key.
After I downloaded & installed TVAP 1.1.7, Flash Card became a dark, not transparent and not moving when pressing FN anymore (shows suddenly when pressing FN).

What's wrong?

PS. I have A200-1M4

Thanks

Answer:Satellite A200-1M4: Flash Cards are dark and not transparent after v1.1.7 update

Nothing is wrong. It is simply new version. Toshiba has offered this update and fixed one big problem. Using last version the flash cards were very slow and it was very annoying. Toshiba has designed new tool and the transparency is not available anymore.

I hope you know very well that such settings need more resources and notebook runs slower. But at the end I am asking myself: is this so important for you?

I have a Satellite A200 PSAE3E and I have noticed just recently that the Flash Cards do not appear now when I move my mouse pointer to the top of the screen.
I have checked that the program is set to start up when the laptop is turned on and I have looked at the settings for the program and everything seems to be OK.

However I can only get them to appear if I double click the file and start it manualy.
As a temporary fix I have put a shortcut on my desktop to start it.

Any help would be appreciated.

Answer:Re: Satellite A200 PSAE6E: Cannot install Flash Cards - invalid serial number

Hi

In most cases the invalid serial number error message occurs if you try to install a utility which has been not created for this notebook series.
You should check if you have downloaded the right tool.

But one question; Do you use the Vista BIOS version?
At this time Toshiba European driver page provides the 2.60 Win Vista BIOS.
Please check this!

Furthermore before you would try to install the Flash cards you should install the VAP. The value added package contains necessary tools and this should be installed firstly before Flash cards installation.

Hello,

My toshiba is Satellite U300 model no. PSU30C-TP908C with windows vista installed

I am getting into a big trouble for some reason, all the keys from "F1~F12" are malfunctioned. When i press them, they do not work as what its suppose to do, instead they all became the functions that you would have when you press them while holding the "Fn" key. So, now if i press F1, I actually get a compter locked instead of casting the help window. Pressing "U,I,O,J,K,L,M" would print out numbers, but if you turn "ON" the numberpad by pressing "F11"(note that i could do it without holding Fn), these keys will return to normal. Space bar does not work no matter what you do. The numbers "1,2" above "Q,W" does not work either.

Another thing i found out is that when i try to open the accessibility tools in the toshiba utility. It says "This system does not support this program".

I have tried to find updates to these utilities, but i could not find the ones suitable for my toshiba. I went to the toshiba support page, click on download and it prompts me to select my toshiba laptop and model number. However, from the list of toshiba satellite U300, there is only 3 models and none of them is PSU30C-TP908C. I did not know which one is compatible with my model, so i gave up finding the updates.

Answer:Satellite U300 PSU30C - Toshiba flash cards and accessibility tools issue

Hi

Normally you can find all drivers on the Toshiba Canada page for your notebook:
http://www.toshiba.ca => Support => Mobile Computing

For the FN keys on Windows you need the Value Added Package. You can find it on the Toshiba website. Remove the old version and restart the notebook. Then use CCleaner to clean the registry and then install the version.

But be honest if you can?t go in the BIOS because with F2 I think it?s a keyboard malfunction and this has nothing to do with the Toshiba tools.
In your case I would test an external keyboard? So you can determine if it?s an internal keyboard problem or not.

Good luck!

I have used the following ?repair? order for this problem:
I uninstalled Flash Cards Support Utility and then Value Added Package. I did make a restart and cleaned the system by using CCleaner. One restart more and I installed Value Added Package firstly and then Flash Cards Support Utility. Now I did make the last restart and the FN keys started to work!

It?s important that you install the new versions for Windows 7!
That means Flash Cards Support Utility version 1.63.0.4 and VAP version 1.2.34_64. I founded both on the Toshiba website :)

Hi there.
Like to first off apologise if this is the wrong place to post this topic, but put it down to been new here and the fact that at this point I'm tearing my hair out!!!...
Just recently bought a Toshiba Satellite A135-S4427, which runs Vista Premium, and in the main I'm pretty pleased with it.
No major problems...at least none that don't resolve themselves eventually.
This was however not until I noticed that my Toshiba Flash Card, which host the hot keys and some computer functions and which should drop down only when you point your cursor at the top of the screen, developed a mind all of its own and from time to time decided to make an unsolicited apperance and drop down without been prompted!
As it usually happens when I have just finished clicking on something or touched my mouse, I thought it might have something to do with the external optical mouse I was using so off I went to buy another one but of course the darn thing still does the same thing with the new mouse.
I have found a way to disable the flash cards, but I would rather be able to make use of them rather than turning the fuction off completely because of the annoying 'drop down'.
Someone mentioned to me that it may be a conflict between a program I've installed since getting the computer and the flash card program, but as itunes is the only major add-on I have installed, I wonder!?!...
Could this be another classic case of vista gone bad, or is there something else?

Hi, essejyar, and welcome to the forums.

Can you give us a picture of the *exact* error message, or else write down what it is saying exactly?

As far as multiple user environment, sorry, XP and Vista are both built on the NT kernel (and advances made to said kernel) which means they support multiple users by default. There are a couple of things you can do to make it less intrusive, like automating your login and such, and you can make it easier to use, like disabling UAC, but to protect you from your own self, I'd not recommend these at all.

I am a 20+ year veteran of using computers and I leave UAC on - because then I don't have to run Ad-aware and Spybot and Malwarebytes and Spywareguard and lock down my hosts file and all those other fun things you needed on XP to keep it relatively safe from intrusion and malware....

Answer:Origin of Toshiba Flash Cards?

Might be the card reader driver for the laptop. Chances are, Windows Update automatically installed what it thought was the right driver and ended up trying the Windows 8 one instead.

Go to Device Manager and see if you can see anything about the card reader there?

Hi,

The nVidia GeForce Go 7300 board (Toshiba part no. V0001000500) has failed in my Satellite A200 (PSAFCA-01K00J) laptop. I've removed the board and am looking for a replacement. I note that there are some other, more powerful graphics boards now available, such as the ATI M76M 512MB (Toshiba part no. V000101740).

Has anyone had success with replacing their nVidia GeForce Go 7300 board with something different?

Here are the A200 graphics boards that exist:

V000100500 VGA-BOARD-nVIDIA-G72MV-128MB ASSEMBLY,BOARD,VGA
V000101600 VGA-BOARD-ATI-M76M-256MB ASSEMBLY,BOARD,VGA
V000101610 VGA-BOARD-ATI-M72M-128MB ASSEMBLY,BOARD,VGA
V000101740 VGA-BOARD-ATI-M76M-512MB ASSEMBLY,BOARD,VGA

Cheers,

'max

Answer:Re: Satellite A200 - Compatible Graphics Cards

> I note that there are some other, more powerful graphics boards now available...
Do you think these graphic cards can be used without risk? I mean you know that cooling system has very limited cooling performance, right?

If something must be replaced on mobile units than it is strongly recommended to replace it with the same part.

Satellite A200 is pretty old notebook model so if you need notebook with much more graphic performance I think it is time for new notebook. Fix this old piece of hardware, sell it and buy new one. It is my personal opinion.

Hi, everyone,

there may be a thread about this, but i could not find it.

I have the following problem: after the lat uptade from Microsoft (I believe the Fall Uptade...) everytime I try to shut the laptop down or restart it, I get the notification on the screen that Toshiba Flash Cards is preventing the computer from shutting down. I get two options - to cancel shutdown or force it. I tried turning the FN keys off from star up settings. However it did not help.

Has anybody ever had this problem? Does anyone know how to fix it?

I don't want to loose the FN keys, but i don't want to force a shutdown everytime either.

So any ideas?

After finally being able to launch Toshiba Flash Cards ( [see thread|http://forums.computers.toshiba-europe.com/forums/thread.jspa?threadID=29870&tstart=0] ), I just discovered that Fn+key does not activate any of the functions!

Activating them using the mouse and click the correct card does however work as expected.

I also discovered that adding the Raid console to my Flash Cards causes FC to crash!

Answer:Toshiba Flash Cards v1.1.7 - problem with Fn-keys

... So I found the cause of this as well...

User Account Control (UAC) prevents the Fn-keys to work. By disabling UAC, I can use the Flash Cards. But I suggest Toshiba better find another solution for this, as disabling UAC lowers the security!

There you can choose the notebooks series and the language.

Regarding the installation issue;
Possibly you have chosen the wrong utility version or for wrong series. Please note that the common modules are necessary and must be installed firstly.

Answer:Satellite A200-1M5 - can't see memory cards after Vista re-installing

Hi

First of all the Satellite A200-1M5 seems to belong to the PSAE0 series and you should choose exactly this model on Toshiba European driver page if you want to download the compatible drivers.

Now back to your issue;
Did you check if the SD card controller has been recognized properly?
You should do this!

The point is that you need the Flash Media Driver 2.0.0.6 to get the SD card controller working!
The Flash Media driver is for your Bridge Media Slot.
This slot lets you insert either a SD card, Memory Stick (Pro) or xD picture card.

If you have already installed this then I think you should reinstall it again?

The Toshiba Flash Cards has been designed for the Windows Vista only

The Windows 7 is very similar to the Vista and many drivers could and would run with Windows 7 but in very rare cases some tools would be not fully compatible?

The Toshiba Flash Cards is not a driver; it?s a utility which seems to be not compatible with Windows 7?

Hey,

I've done some searching and it seems that both KeNotify.exe (Toshiba/Utilities) and TCrdMain.exe (Toshiba/Flashcards) are responsible for managing the Fn keys.

Could anyone please explain what each does separately, and what functionality will I loose if I remove them from startup?

Thanks a lot!

Answer:What does the Toshiba Flash Cards / KeNotify Application controls?

Hi

From my knowledge the Flash Cards (visual FN button row at the top of the screen) appears pressing if one of the FN + F1-F9 key combination would be pressed.
If you remove both tools, I assume that this visual menu would not appear anymore and you will lose the FN button functionality.

But you can test this just for testing proposes without deleting both entries.
In search type msconfig. In msconfig choose Startup tab and here uncheck both exe files. Save the changes and reboot the unit.

If you want to get back these processes, access the Startup tab again and enable both processes once again.

Toshiba Flash Cards crashes on Vista when windows is set to use the "windows standard" colour scheme under appearance settings, (for your information, I prefer to use this mode as vista runs quicker, uses less battery power and less system ram in this mode).

However it does not crash immediately, instead it seems to crash whenever I rotate the screen (which happens quite often as I?m using a tablet pc) with the previous version of the software it crashed on boot however that seems to have been rectified with this version although not completely, however when it crashes it will not fully close even if i force task manager to end the process (rather than just the task).

hi all

Thanks for the wonderful forum. I think this is the right place to ask.

I own a Toshiba Satellite A200-1M4 model and the problem is with the TV out option. When i connect the s-video cable to TV, the Tv is showing a black and white signal instead of colour. Tried PAL and NTSC settings on the TV however nothing worked out.

Went to the market to search if there is a cable fault but changed 4 to 5 cables and the problem is the same.

I guess one of the store persons said that there is a software to convert Black and White to color.
I googled for more but ended up with nothing

Can anyone recommend what do i need to do to get the color option on the TV.

Thanks

Answer:Re: Satellite A200-1M4: TV Out is black and white

I presume your TV settings are wrong.
I?ve got the same issue. I?ve connected the notebook to the parents TV and the pic was black and white. But the pic was great on my TV.

I have enabled the s-video option on the other TV and I got the colour ;)

The FN key flashcards (that drop down from the top of screen) worked nicely for the first week of using this new notebook, they seemed to disappear by themselves (windows updates are the devil, so I point the finger at that) and I've spent an inordinate amount of time resolving this issue.

I have downloaded the latest TVAP and flashcard utility from Toshiba support. installed tvap and then rebooted and then ran the flash card utility installer which uninstalled the utility and then rebooted and then reran the utility installer, rebooted and still no joy.

my FN keys are still working, but without the flash card I cant see where im scrolling through wifi/bluetooth on/off.

What else can be done once tvap and flash card utility have been installed?

Answer:Re: Satellite A500 - Flash Cards don't appear

Hey,

I had a similar problem that Flash Cards didn?t appear anymore... As far as I know it was related to an additional software that I installed? If I remember rightly, it was VMware?

So if you install this program remove it. Furthermore make sure that Flash Cards Support Utility and Value Added Package will be started properly.

Before you install newest versions, remove the old one firstly and start CCleaner to clean up the registry.

I hope it helps!

This model does not come with the Flash Card Support Utility, it does however come with the Value Added Package.

I have uninstalled, CCleaned and reinstalled and repeated mulitple times, trying to get this to work properly. I have also restarted after each of these steps.

(Running Vista Home Basic on a Satellite L30)

The Flash Cards utility only really works if I use it soon after starting up my laptop. I often want to change the machine brightness after I've been using the machine for an hour or so, but the utility either ignores my attempts to move the slider down on the brightness setting, or shows it as at the lowest setting already (when it's actually at max).

So far the only solution I have found is to restart the machine! I cannot even seem to restart the programs instead--I can hunt it down in task manager and close it, right enough.... but then double clicking on TCrdMain.exe does nothing and the blooming thing won't reopen.

How do I restart the utility? And, have there been any updates to make this any more stable?

I mean if this work don't switch your notebook off but you can often use hibernation mode.

Some function like WLAN enable/disable are controlled by additional software and your old machine will probably not supported for Win10 so I think you will not be able to fix this.

Furthermore you should check the output signal of the S-Video port and the input mode on your TV. If you use NTSC you must set this mode, otherwise use the PAL mode.

Hi there, I have a Toshiba Satellite A200 and I've encountered a frustrating problem. Let's just get a few things out first.

I had intended to turn it off last night, but it didn't shut down. There was some message about a program still opened or something like that (not a big deal I thought as I had gotten it a few times before). I just clicked whatever it was that ended it or turned it off anyways. So today I come back to turn it on and it was on that message. I turn it off and come back later to turn it on. I noticed there was a black screen and I could not do anything. I hold the power button to turn it off and restart it. It loads the Toshiba/Phoenix screen fine. Then I get to the Windows Recovery screen. It gives me two options.

Hi there, I have a Toshiba Satellite A200 and just today I've encountered a frustrating problem. Let's just get a few things out first.

I had intended to turn it off last night, but it didn't shut down. There was some message about a program still opened or something like that (not a big deal I thought as I had gotten it a few times before). I just clicked whatever it was that ended it or turned it off anyways. So today I come back to turn it on and it was on that message. I turn it off and come back later to turn it on. I noticed there was a black screen and I could not do anything. I hold the power button to turn it off and restart it. It loads the Toshiba/Phoenix screen fine. Then I get to the Windows Recovery screen. It gives me two options.

Windows XP Pro, SP3
HP nx9420 laptop

My Computer won't see any USB storage devices like flash memory sticks or SD
cards in a card reader.

I've checked for drive letter conflicts and I don't have any...

When/if I plug in a U3 memory stick I can see the U3 CD part of the stick,
but none of the flash memory storage area.

When/if I put an SD, SDHC, or Compact Flash card into a card reader I get
nothing.

None of what should be available storage space can be seen under Disk
Management. I can see all my other drives but the flash space is not there.
Its like the disks don't exist!

Every stick I'm having issues with, every flash card I'm having problems
with, they all work on other machines without any issues at all!!

I do have ONE memory stick that works, but the AutoPlay no longer functions
as it did, I don't get a choice of what to do even though its set to let me
choose when I insert... Other than that NONE of my flash based storage
works...

Help!!

Thanks!

Flash Cards used to work well until recently but now they only become active when I use the mouse.

To attempt a solution I have uninstalled and reinstalled the Value Added Pack, I have checked the settings of Flash Cards Settings utility but to no avail.

What I miss most is the Flash Card zoom function which is not available in mouse mode.

Answer:Satellite A200-1AE - Need drivers for Flash card and Toshiba buttons

Hi

The Toshiba Multimedia buttons are controlled by VAP (value added package).
Since the VAP is model independent, the VAP for Satellite L500 should run also on Sat A200?
Therefore download the VAP for Sat L500 and check how it would works on your A200?

One question:
What do you mean by Flasch card's??
Do you mean the FN buttons or the card reader???

The FN buttons are controller by Flash Card Support Utility which can be downloaded also from Satellite L500 driver area?

Check it!

Hi,

I have a Satellite A500 PSAM3A-04200E. Recently I did an upgrade from Vista to Win 7. I used my system restore disks to reinstall Vista and then did the upgrade to Windows 7 using the upgrade assistant.

I find that I can no longer use the Fn key to enable/disable features..

I have tried downloading the VAP and running it. I have also tried the Start->Toshiba->Utilities->Restart Flash Cards. Neither of these have worked even after a restart...

Can anyone give me some pointers on what to do next?

Thanks

Answer:Satellite A500 - Flash Cards don't work after Windows 7 upgrade

Hi buddy,

If you have already reinstalled Toshiba Value Added Package, you should also (re)install ?Flash Cards Support Utility?. This tool controls the FN keys and is necessary to get them working.

You can download it on official Toshiba website:
www.mytoshiba.com.au

Hello,

I recently bought a Satellite C55-C-1F6 (PSCPAE) in a french store (Darty). The computer was running Windows 10 Home, but I didn't want to use this system. So I installed Windows 7 Pro, and it works great. Except hotkeys. By the way, Hotkeys are working (Fn + F1, F2, F3, ...), but nothing appears on the screen, and I don't find the right "driver" to install for the feature.
Anybody knows what is the program I need to run to have these visual notifications when I use these hotkeys ? I found some information about Flash Cards, but nothing on the "downloads & drivers" page on the Toshiba's web site (except a "Function keys" program for Windows 8 only, which disabled some hotkeys when I tried it on W7).

Thanks in advance !

I am using windows 7 ultimate x64 on L500-126, the new win7 x64 drivers have been available since yesterday.....

However, the Flash cards (Fn Hotkeys) still doesn't work after the installation of the new VAP. The flash cards is able to show up at the top of my screen, I can click them by mouse, but the Fn combinations does not work at all!

I've noticed that there is a downloadable driver called "Flash Cards support", even I installed this application the problem still remained.

Then I uninstalled VAP and kept "Flash Cards support", to my surprise, the combination of Fn+F6 and F7 (Adjusting brightness) worked! however, without VAP I could not use other combinations.

Are there still problems with the new VAP for win 7 x64?


P.S. The new "Hardware setup" seems to be a problem as well, I tried to change some configurations in this application but after re-boot all the options went back.

Hi folks,

i reinstall Vista without the Recovery CD and now the FN Keys works, but not all. I.E. i cant lock the Touchpad and the FlashCards also didnt come down, if i push a FN Key.
The User darksys tells at this Thread (http://forums.computers.toshiba-europe.com/forums/click.jspa?searchID=172641&messageID=100112) that it is helpful to install the Flash Card Support Utilty that is not available at the European Download Site. So i downloaded it from the Canadian Site, but at the Installation it tells me that I have an invalide Serial Nummber ??!!
I have a Sattelite A-210-10C (Model Nummber : PSAEGE-xyz). So I think the Install tells me that I have an Invalide Serial because it is for an another Model Series.

Its annoying, writing a text and then suddenly the mouse jump anywehre else because I touch the Pad by mistake...

So I hope anybody could help.


So long...

Answer:Question about function Keys and Flash Cards on my Satellite A210-10C

Hello

Please check Toshiba Europe support site again to see if there is never version for VAP. I have A200 and there was some problem with VAP installed in recovery image.

I have removed it from the system and installed latest version from Toshiba support page. Now by pressing KN key the flash cards are shown very fast and I can use al of them without any problem.

Check also touchpad settings. There must be also option for touchpad disabling.

Answer:Satellite A200 - After Toshiba screen the display does black

Hi

Normally after the Toshiba screen the notebook tries to boot from HDD.

It could be a HDD issue but I?m not sure. Have you checked the BIOS if the HDD is recognized properly?
What happens if you load the default settings in BIOS?
Did you test and external monitor?

Last but not least it would be interesting to know if you can boot from another device, for example CD/DVD drive.

Hi,

one little suggestion: remove the FN-key software and install a downloaded version. Make sure that everything from that FN-key software was properly removed from the system, so you can be sure that nothing will disturb the newly installed version.

Maybe it helps, please give a feedback if it works...

Hi,

I have a problem using any external flash memory with my laptop. Hwnever I plug a USB stick or sd card in, I get a notification sound and then the computer says it needs formatting. If I try and format it fails every time. I have tried several usb drives and sd cards in all four ports with the same results. All of these devices work fine on other computers.

My laptop does still recognize and let me use my external usb hard drive however.

I have tried using Device manager to update and also uninstall both the Disk Drive and USB mass storage device, but this has not resolved the problem. The devices are listed in Device Manager, with no yellow error icon. It says the drivers are up to date.

I have also tried using CMD to clean and format the disk, but again the computer says it is unable to format the disk.

Could anyone help me to resolve this issue please?

Hello,

I have exhausted suggestions on the internet trying to solve this issue.

The Function key does not bring up flash cards. If I use the mouse, they work fine, and I can use the function key to take a screenshot, but it doesn't work for backlights, mute, brightness etc.

I have just fully rebuilt the PC from scratch because of what I think was a HD problem. It may have been the 6 year old Windows installation, but the old D: drive is now the C: drive and everything else is working fine.

I have installed Value Added Pack, Toshibe Function Keys, and Flash Cards, and all the software is there and running as expected, just not with the function key.

Any suggestions gratefully received.

Steve

The problem is with those file TCrdMain.exe That file is for Flash cards, end running each time when I put my PC on (with starting windows). But I see that problem: "Run time error file TCrdMain.exe", and I should click close.

And One other question...
There are so many programs with that computer(laptop), and If I want to install Windows XP for example, where can I find everything (each programs) There are maybe 10 or 15 pograms.

That will be a big problem If I change my OS. Is there a site where I can download, everything....

I have a problem with my satellite P100, the 5-in-1 reader was reading correctly SD and XD cards, but since 3 days ago (no upgrade, or no new software), it still works perfectly well for XD cards, but not anymore for SD. When I insert a XD card, I get a drive letter, with an SD card, and I tried several different ones, nothing happens, as if they did not exist.

I am running Win2k server, and the problem started 3 days ago about.

maybe the driver of the 5-in-1 reader was corrupted somehow. Check this in device manager or reinstall it.

After a complete cleaning the fan and replacing the thermal grease I noticed that when the computer starts the fan is stopped for some minutes.

It starts but priodically stops again. Is it normal this situation???

Sometimes even the temperature goes up, the fan keeps stopped. I checked if the fan stacks but it seems to rotate freely (not have the symptom of stack shaft)!!!

Keep in your mind that the OS is Windows 7 installed long time ago. Before the cleaning and replascing the thermal grease, the computer hanged usually within 15 minutes terminatting with a BSOD. Note that HDD is checked for bad sectors and now is in fine condition after a regeneration (with HDD Reganerator)!

Is there any hypothetic case the OS to do not control the fan correctly???

What is your experience about this symptoms???

Anybody can help please????

Hi,

I was using Toshiba Button Controls (play/pause, stop, back/forward buttons) with Winamp and was perfect (but the FN+f2,f5,f6,f7,f8 and f9 were not working but i didn't mind) on my Satelitte A200.

But two days ago i have updated the BIOS to the newest version and the FN command started to work but the play, stop and b/f buttons are not working anymore (tried with Media Player too).

I have reinstalled the control drivers and is the same thing.

Do you have any idea how could i solve this problem?

Thx

Answer:Satellite A200 - Toshiba Controll Buttons stopped working

Hello

Have you only reinstalled the Toshiba controls driver or controls software too?
I think you should try to reinstall both applications.

So remove both applications in Add or Remove programs. After this restart the notebook and use CCleaner to remove still existing files from these programs and restart the notebook again.
Then install the Controls driver first and then Controls software.
Usually the driver must always been installed first.

Check this!!
