Flash cards (TCrdMain.exe) keeps crashing on Satellite L30

Question: Flash cards (TCrdMain.exe) keeps crashing on Satellite L30

(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?

Preferred Solution: Flash cards (TCrdMain.exe) keeps crashing on Satellite L30

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

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

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

Answer: Flash cards (TCrdMain.exe) keeps crashing on Satellite L30

As far as I know you can disable and enable this Toshiba flash card under Programs -> Toshiba -> Utilities -> Settings for Flash Cards
Check this maybe it helps.

But usually the flash cards service can be enabled and disabled in the ?computer management?. Under ?Services? choose the Flash card service and start it again!!!

Hi everyone!

I don't know how, but I have a problem when my windows Vista starting (running)
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.
I don't know where can I uninstall that program, and where, can I find that driver(Software) ( If I uninstall and then install that driver, maybe everything will be OK). That's the main problem.

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....
Thanks for the answers, nd sorry about my english skills :-)
Best wishes from Bulgaria, and have a nice day!

I don't use the Toshiba Flash cards - I just find them a nuisance, so I've stopped them appearing at the top of the screen. However, I note +tcrdmain.exe+ is still running, and eating up memory. Is it safe to disable this in msconfig?

(I'm running Vista business)

Answer:Can I disable the Tcrdmain.exe in msconfig - Toshiba Flash cards

Why shouldn?t be it safe? ;)
You can set it back if something will go wrong?.

You can try it.
Disable this background process in ?msconfig? a then boot the machine again.
After this short procedure you could check in task manager if the Tcrdmain.exe was disabled and if the notebook runs trouble free.

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?

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


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!

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


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.

I own a Toshiba Satellite L750 PSK1WA-03C00R and my flash cards do not work, the function keys work, but my flash cards do not.

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.

I can't figure the problem out and thought that I'd see what you guys' recommend before I resort to getting Toshiba's support services.

I also do not want to have to resort to a system restore, but, if I really have to and have no choice, I will when I can.

I hope someone may be able to help me and do look forward to what support you can offer me.
Thanks in advance.


Answer:Flash Cards do not work on my Satellite L750

Generally speaking, Toshiba Flash Card utility is part of Value Added Package so you will not find this utility for download.

Please check if you can find start > all programs > Toshiba > Utilities > Restart Flash cards option and click on it. Still the same problem? Can you open settings for Flash cards?

There is also option called: Allow the mouse to bring up the cards. Does this option work?

Is there any way to turn on wireless on a Satellite L505 without the flashcard utility?
I've upgraded to Windows 10 and flashcards will not install/work. Oddly, if I go into the bios and turn off wireless, then reboot and turn it on, it works. But after a reboot, wireless is off again and I have to go through the bios change to get it to work again.

What I would give to have the hardware switch on this one.

Answer:Satellite L505 and Win10 - Wirelss Without Flash Cards

Maybe stupid question now but do you have this problems if you use stand-by or hibernation mode?
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.

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.

What's wrong?

PS. I have A200-1M4


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

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.

It then goes on to shut down the Flashcards program.

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


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.

Wait a moment, please! In which order you have installed/reinstalled the Value Added Package and Flash Cards Support Utility? It would be interesting to know what you have done exactly.

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 and VAP version 1.2.34_64. I founded both on the Toshiba website :)

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


Normally you can find all drivers on the Toshiba Canada page for your notebook: => 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!

Did you install the right BIOS for the right OS?
You should know that Vista uses an different BIOS as the Windows XP!

Anyway, did you try to reinstall this Toshiba Flash Card Utility?
Please do this.

Firstly you should reinstall the Toshiba Common Modules and then the Flash Card Utility. Both programs can be found in the Toshiba Value added package.

Good day! I have a problem with my new Lenovo C200 All-in-One. FreeDOS has been installed when I turn it on at first time so I decided to install Windows 7 Pro x64. But there are many unexpected BSOD's while working in Win 7. OK, I installed Windows XP Pro instead Windows 7. It's working OK but - I can't play most of youtube movies based on Adobe Flash Player - there are 3-5 mins and "Adobe Flash Player has been crashed" :-( And there is no any dependence of browser I'm using. Same problem with: MS IE/Mozilla Firefox/Google Chrome. And finally, I can't use videocalls in my Skype! Webcam is OK but when I'm trying to call using videocamera - Skype is crashing.

Do flash cards and flash drives use the same technology? If so, would a utility designed for flash cards work on flash drives and vice-versa?

Answer:Flash Cards and Flash Drives

Yes, they use the same flash chips for storage. As for the utility.. It depends on what you want to do.

On application level a drive is a drive is a drive and there is no difference between working with a hard drive, a flash drive, a memory card, a zip drive, whatever.

Hello all,

I have problem with graphic card installation. Make it easy for you masters to help me, following is my system specification:

- Soltek SL-85ERV2 (No LAN) Socket 478 Via P4X400A mobo, supports AGP 4x/8x (Manual in the box dated Aug 2002)
- 1024MB PC2700 DDR SDRAM
- Intel P4 2.53GHz w/ 533MHz FSB
- Firewire card, 56K PCI modem
- USB 2.0 onboard
- CD/DVD drive & CDRW drive

The first AGP card went in was the PixelView MVGA-NVG28A GeForce 4 Ti4200 128MB DDR w/ TV Out/Video In - 8x/4x AGP

After hardware installation completed, I start the PC to do BIOS setup, then install windows 98 OS, everything running smoothly (and Fast )

When windows 98 up and running, I start to install VIA 4 in 1 driver and all the bits and pieces, problems begin when DRIVER of AGP card installed. When intallation process for AGP driver completed, of course Im asked to restart the PC, the system restart to windows logo screen, running for a wee while, then it switches to the black screen (normally the black screen would stay for about 4-5 seconds then windows appears), a little cursor on the top left of the screen blinking for about 10 secs then a loud, continuous beep burstin' out. I restart windows and it goes to SafeMode, in Safe Mode I removed the AGP driver then restart, then install the drive again, same thing happened, past the Windows logo screen, switched to black screen, sit there for a while (about 10 secs) then the loud, continuous beep comes on.

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 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?

some FN keys like brightness, mute, display switching and sleep are working without VAP
but I also have WiFi on/off, touchpad on/off, energy mode switching, zooming buttons, which are not working

again I dont want to have this flash cards utility always running and consuming ram

Answer:Using FN keys without flash cards

As far as I know something like this is not possible and if you want to have FN functionality ?flash cards? utility must run in the background.
This with RAM consuming is funny for me because if you disable it you will not see any difference in computer performance.

Maybe you should disable some other useless background processes that you don?t need.
If you have new notebook model with Win7 they have enough RAM for all operations and running flash cards will not have much influence on computer performance.

This is probably a better place to ask then then in Disk Storage Systems.

Is it possible to get back the autoplay where you select what you want so to do in xp when you put in a flash carded into a card reader. I am guessing when it is put in to many times it starts opening up the same way every time.

All I could find on google was how to disable it.

Answer:Autoplay and flash cards.

I would say put the card back into the reader so you get a drive icon and drive letter, then right click on it and choose Properties, then it should have an AutoPlay tab listed so you can configure it however you like.

Hope this helps...

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....

Hello all,

This is my first time posting on this forum, but I've read all the threads I needed to before I posted this so I hope that I can give enough information right off the bat so I can get some solid help. The problem I've ran into is with my brother's computer. It's a Toshiba Satellite L505, running Windows 7 Home Premium (32-bit). Anyways, the first time I logged on, I knew right away the idiot had some sort of virus. It got rid of his desktop background and replaced it with a blank blue background. It also popped up with a ton of windows, and a popup near the taskbar kept appearing saying 'application cannot be executed. the file tcrdmain.exe is infected. please activate your antivirus software'. I did a little bit of research on the TCrdMain.exe and found out it was a Toshiba specific .exe, and that this Malware hasn't been assigned a security threat level yet. I'm not sure how serious this problem is, but I've told him he probably shouldn't use his laptop until it gets fixed. Some of the people that ran into this problem could not access the internet on the infected computer. Although I was still able to access the internet from his infected laptop, it was very sluggish and the pop-ups were extremely persistent so I abandoned his, went on another, downloaded all the programs I needed to, and then installed them onto his laptop.

My friend has had his PC for 7 months, but several days ago, the screen will scramble instantly, typically during games. It has a Connect3D X800GTO.

I noticed that it did it when the temperature of the GPU was high using ATi Tray Tools, and would crash during a benchmark test. Bearing in mind, this problem arised at the start a series of hot days here in Nottinghamshire, UK. And, the PC isn't the best of cases for gaming and stuff. When the screen scrambles, I can still recognise the desktop and move the scrambled cursor graphic around, but after a few seconds, it turns itself off.

Yesterday, it started doing it much sooner, and would often do it before even finishing loading Windows, and then eventually, would do it from the momet I turn it on.

So I decided let it cool down, and it would this time let me get as far as loading Windows up, but then scrambled/crashed again.

I took the graphics card out put it in another PC and it did the same thing, so it's definitely the graphics card. The graphics card was very dusty, bu I've cleaned it now.

I think the card maybe on its way out, but I hope it isn't. Any ideas for solving the problem?

Answer:Graphics cards scramble/crashing problem...

I looked the the graphics card from the top and it there's about a 1mm gap between the heatsink and this big chip which I assume is the processing core.

Actually, looking at it again, there's something on the middle of the processing core, taking up a large amount of it, which may be dust/muck, or may be part of the processing core.

I have no idea myself. Any help will be appreciated.

Recently got a EVGA 1050 ti FTW to replace my R9 270X which died a while ago.

The card comes in and immediately after installing it I get power on issues. Eventually I manage to get into Windows. But then Windows crashes. The machine will power on for a few seconds then shut off. Or it might not power on at all.

Because I have two desktops, I just swap the 1050 TI into my other PC and it runs fine. Doesn't seem like the card is the issue. Anyway, for kicks, I order a Gigabyte GTX 1050 OC 2GB just to see if maybe my system doesn't like EVGA or otherwise needs a less power hungry card (not that 1050 ti is power hungry). That, and the mobo, like the card, is from Gigabyte. So it made sense to me to try.

Okay, so the GTX 1050 arrives and I pop it in. The computer seems to boot normally. But within 5 minutes, Windows freezes. Then it goes straight to reboot. It will skip POST (even though I have fast boot disabled) and go straight to the sign in. Rinse, repeat.


1) This isn't the first time the machine has rejected nvidia cards specifically. Had an EVGA GTX 960 I had to return because the display drivers kept crashing. Now these 1050 and 1050 ti's don't work. The only discrete GPU that's ever worked in this is R9 270X.

2) The machine runs fine in Safe Mode. And for the first few moments of Windows being online, everythings okay. It's only after I start trying to do anything that it crashes. One thing that is sure fire guaranteed to crash it is opening Chrome. But this... Read more

 I bought a Lexar Platinum II 8gb 200x compact flash card to use as a boot drive { my machine has jumper for cf to be c:\ } and at first it did not show as c: drive at all . I used Lexar usb tool to flip the removable media bit and it then showed as c: drive but could not read or write and said incorrect drive perimeters error . I changed the jumper back and now as a slave I could fdisk and format so I made 4 partitions and formated them no problem . After I tried c drive , same problem as before , but works perfect as  the slave { installed win98se , runs perfect } . When I checked the bios as c: drive it said 12000 {approx.}cylinders  20 heads and 63 sectors but as slave it reports 16000 {approx }cylinders 16 heads and 63 sectors . I tried inputing the drive perimeters but no go . I've never seen a drive report 20 heads before so I assume that explains the error incorrect drive perimeters thing and I assume my CF card was never meant to act as a boot drive . My C: drive is a 64mb dom , hence the interest in a bigger C: drive . I wanted to run dos and win3.11 but quite the squeeze for a full install . So my questions are , do you have to get a purpose built CF card to be a boot drive ? What specs should I look for ?

Answer:Questions about compact flash cards

A simple answer would be NO. No, you do not need a spacial flash drive.. You are using Windows 98 SE. Right?It was not meant to boot from a flash drive. Windows 98 installs on the first hard drive it finds.  But there is a way to make it use a flash drive.But why do you need to boot from a flash drive?Have you read the tutorials? There are several out there.You can Google:Boot Windows 98 from a flash driveAnd find hundreds, even thousands of people who did it.Here is just one of so many: this installation, C:\ drive is your flash disDoes that help any?

My 2 year old loves this app and is learning loads. I have Windows 7 on a touchscreen laptop when it would work a lot better. I looked at the files and they seem to be javascript and XML mainly. Has anyone tried exporting a metro app out of windows 8 to 7? Possibly recompiling to an executable with visual studio?

I want to avoid installing windows 8 but would love to use the app...

Answer:Windows 8 Metro App: Flash Cards

I installed it, typed in some really long winded cards for my granddaughter to use to study. Switched over to her user id, and the program was not there. Installed it for her id. The cards were gone. So I typed them in for her. Everything looked good. Logged her out, went to dinner, came back, logged her in, started the Metro flash cards were gone. Logged in as me, and the cards were gone on my version of the app too. Back to the drawing board.

I'm working on a friend's Toshiba Satelite L775-S7307. I've reformatted it, put on a shiny new copy of Windows 7 64bit, and installed many of the drivers required to run the hardware.

Now out of the blue, immediately when I turn on the computer, a window titled "TOSHIBA Flash Cards" pops up saying "Win8-TestVersion". You can then click OK or Cancel, both which do nothing more than close the window.

I did a search for the Flash Cards program on the computer but couldn't find anything and I have no idea how to get rid of it.

I've attached a picture of the screen immediately after being booted. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

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?

Hello everyone,

Just a quick question. Is there any way that I can have the animation at the top of my screen turned off and STILL have the function keys functional? When I'm running multiple programs and/or on battery power, it takes forever for the animation to pop out and it's just an annoyance. Anything to fix it? Any other software to make them functional? Or any upgrades?

My system is Windows Vista, just in case someone wants to know.
Thank you,

Answer:Question about Toshiba Flash Cards

Yes I believe you can :)

Go to the start menu -> Programs -> Toshiba -> utilities, and run the FlashCards settings utility. You can disable Flashcards there.

Sometimes, unexpectedly and probaby due to some mistake on my part, a message appears saying Toshiba flash cards not responding. What is this?

Answer:Toshiba flash cards don't response

I assume you are an owner of the notebook with the Vista OS. The Toshiba Flash card is preinstalled software which controls visually the FN buttons.

The Toshiba flash cards are placed at the upper display edge. Usually they are not visible but if you will move the courser over this display area the Flash Cards should appear.

I don?t know why the message appears saying the Toshiba flash cards do not response.
Maybe a reinstallation could helps.

Hi all nice to be here.

I have a three compact flash cards 2*256MB and 1*512. All three are not working correctly.
The 512mb card i can read on the PC and see the pictures that i have taken,,,,but, some of the pictures are like double exposure types of picture ie: one picture on top of another.

The two 256mb cards i cannot read at all in the camera or the PC.

Is therer a way of low level formatting them through the PC without using Active Sync. I have a multi card reader in my PC and want to know if there are any utilities that can do this.

I have tried formatting in the camera but it just locks the camera up. On a card that is working there is no problem at all.

HiI am thinking of building a cheap PC for internet use only with one hard drive loaded with Windows 98SE. For security purposes I also want two removable devices, one for original files and the other for backup. I am thinking of using 1 GB flash cards. Has anyone any experience of their long term stability and operating life.I would need to save all originals of OE messages and IE files to a flash card. I believe it is relatively easy to change the destination folder for OE but not certain how to do it for IE?Any advice appreciated.

Answer:Long term use of flash cards

Providing you use memory cards with reasonable care they should last a very long time.I suggested to my best mate that he did basic backups to a Compact Memory Card several years ago, in between full backups, and he has been doing this for at least three years with the same 128MB card.

i put this up in another thread about my graphics card not peroformign at full power but noone is replying so ill post it here as it sort of a different topic. i have seen this metniond so many tiems about flashing the mobo. What is this? What does it do? how do you do it? i have built many computers and never remembered anything about this (unless i done it without knoing what it actually was) . And can you flash a graphics card? i have seen this mentioned before an i remember the card i have (thats not working, go here to see details ) has 3 pins on it and a jumper. As i thought this gflashing might fix the card problem but i guess its an idea to know what it is and how to do it first lol

Answer:what is/ How to flash mobo and grafix cards

Flashing refers to updating the BIOS or firmware.
If you can actually find a newer BIOS for your card then it might fix something but you might as well end up with an unusable vid card.

My Notebook is a Satellite PSB3E 200. If I click on Flash cards in the Start menu the cards are activated and they have been seen by putting the FN button. However starting my pc once again the flash cards are no more activated.
In order to solute this problem I downloaded and installed the flash cards utility from the Toshiba site.

However running the driver I receive the notification the serial number is invalid. Who can help me?

Answer:Question about Flash Cards activation

I really don't know which notebook model do you have but what you can do is to remove Value added package from the system and install latest version offered on Toshiba download page.

After doing this everything should work well.

First of all before I cause any irritations, I'm quite new to the PC world hence the question may be a little stupid. I've just started playing a rather new MMO called Archeage. Though my game tends to crash upon the sight of multiple players(50+) or when multiple actions are executed. I run the game on the highest option given, simply because I believe my pc can do so...however the crashing obviously proves it otherwise. So my question is, to stop the crashing do I upgrade my graphics card or my CPU?
Current PC specs are:

CPU: Intel® Core™ i5 4590 Processor
Motherboard: ASUS B85M-G Motherboard
Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760
Memory: G.Skill Sniper F3-12800CL9D-8GBSR 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3
Power Supply: Seasonic M12II 620W Power Supply

Answer:Question about CPU and graphics cards(Game Crashing Occasionally)

The resolution I'm playing at is 1080p x 1920. Also it's just at that game, though when I ask in-game players it seems only a small fraction of the players are having the issue.
