Satellite C660-1DG - Toshiba Media Creator Recovery fails creating 2nd DVD

Question: Satellite C660-1DG - Toshiba Media Creator Recovery fails creating 2nd DVD

I spend some hours to try to create the recovery disks for my Laptop (Satellite C660-1DG)

It fails on the second DVD halfway. It just hangs. CTRL-ALT-DEL does not work anymore a cold boot is required to start the thing again.

I tried several DVD's but NOGO each time halfway the second DVD it hangs.

I really need to create these recovery DVD's because Im going to upgrade the laptop to run a Windows Server 2012 install for development purposes.

I thought this would take just a minimum amount of time but... of course...

Any thoughs on any way to get this stuff working?

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.

Answer: Satellite C660-1DG - Toshiba Media Creator Recovery fails creating 2nd DVD

I burned just another disk and it was full of validation errors: hundreds.

So I connected my external DVD writer (NEC ND-3500AG) (firmware 2.1A) and took THE SAME DVD and burned it: presto: no problems: 0 validation errors

So I deduce that the internal DVD writer (TSSTcorp TS-L633C) (firmware TF20) is chunky.

I am still in warranty but... is it any use?

I have just bought a Satellite U400, and when I try to create the Recovery Disc with Toshiba Recovery Disc Creator program, I get an error message: "Could not find HDD Recovery folder on second drive of the first hard disk. There is no valid HDD Recovery environment on this computer".

I haven't changed anything on the HDD!!! How do I create my Recovery Disc?

Answer:Satellite U400-10J - Toshiba Recovery Disc Creator fails!

I have made many experiments with fresh preinstalled Vista and this message is shown is the folder with recovery image is missing. So the fact is the folder and data are gone.

Are you really sure you didn?t do anything? Has someone else access to your notebook?

Hello everyone,

My question is about the Recovery Media Creator procces.
I was about to create the recovery and I noticed there are several options (DVD 4.7 Go, DVD 8.5 GB and USB Flash).

My Toshiba Satellite L855-12X is with a Blu-ray Disc Drive burner and would like to use a BD-RE I bought for backups.

Does anyone have a solution to use this media ?

Answer:Satellite L855-12X: How to use BD-RE with TOSHIBA Recovery Media Creator

I have the same optical disc drive in my Satellite but no option to use empty BD for recovery media creation. I presume preinstalled Toshiba software cannot handle with it.
Best thing you can do is to create USB recovery media.

To be honest I?ve created two back-ups (DVDs and USB). I can always use one of them if necessary.

When i try to make Recovery dvd with TOSHIBA Recovery Media Creator the burning fails.

I have Satellite C50-A-19T with TSSTcorpCDDVDW_SU-208DB_T cd/dvd-rw unit.

During burning process i get an error that say that is impossible read the file D:\ZZImages\ZZImages\install29.swm (the .swm file in error change with different attempts).

I marked the option to verify dvd after burning.

I tried a few times: i try make a single dvd (requires 3 dvd for complete recovery).
i try 2 times with verbatim dvd+r the fist try failed, the second succeeded with the same kind of support.
i try make dvd numb. 2. for two time with dvd-r and dvd +r support and it failed again.

On windows error report i find this error:

and this alert:

+ODD Firmware Update to fix problems with the Toshiba Recovery CD creator+

I see this solution by upgrading firmware for different models of cd/dvd-rw units

http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/kb0/TSB9C02RP0000R01.htm

but not about the model I have.

i have:

TOSHIBA Recovery Media Creator version: 3.1.02.55065006
windows 8.1 x64.

there is a solution?
is a known problem?

thanks

Elena

Answer:Satellite C50-A-19T problem with TOSHIBA Recovery Media Creator

If fie that belongs to recovery image cannot be read than there must be problem with recovery image files and not with optical disc drive.
Have you tested optical disc drive functionality on some other way?

Does Toshiba recovery media creator offer option for recovery USB media? If yes, try please to create recovery USB to see if the same problem will happen again.

Finally, after about 2 months, I ran the Toshiba Recovery Media Creator.
It kept reminding me to do so every time I opened the laptop.

Now, though, everything works at a VERY slow pace.
What can be done to solve this problem?

Thank you

Answer:Satellite A660-10W: Toshiba Recovery Media Creator kept reminding me

Hi

Do you want to disable this notification?

You can do this is msconfig. Start the msconfig go to startup tab and uncheck process which is responsible for the Toshiba Media Creator notification. Save the changes and reboot the unit.

By the way; it would be advisable to clean the OS and registry using CCleaner. This tool is for free and would delete all temporal files

Hello,

I have done the WIN 8 upgrade on a Toshiba L870-156 laptop. The upgrade is OK, but I have no more Toshiba recovery media creator, as the upgrade procedure said that it had to be desinstalled before the upgrade and reinstalled after the upgrade.

I have one big issue : where can I find Toshiba recovery media creator to reinstall it ?

By advance thank you.

Answer:Upgrade WIN8 on Satellite L870 - Toshiba recovery media creator reinstall

You need to install the Windows 8 version of the Recovery Disc creator. I think it's generic so grab it from the drivers page of one of the new Win8 model notebooks.

Answer:Re: Satellite C660-10T Problem creating recovery disc

Toshiba recovery disc can be created with preinstalled ?Toshiba recovery media creator tool? ONLY.
So I don?t understand why you use Microsoft and Nero software.

Have you checked User?s manuals document and chapter about recovery media creation?

For recovery DVD creation I recommend you to use DVD-R empty medias only.

Hi Friends, I bought a new Toshiba Kirabook PSU8SA-00V00U a few months ago. I wanted to create recovery disks in case of emergency, but everytime I start Toshiba Recovery Media Creator, it comes with a message that No HDD Recovery Area detected.

Then I tried launching the recovery environment by pressing 0 at start up.
It comes up with a blue screen saying that can not load from recovery partition.

I checked with Paragon Hard Disk Partition Manager software that the recovery drive is available.

How can I make recovery media or connect that recovery HDD back in system so that Toshiba Recovery Media Creator detects the recovery drive and makes recovery media. Otherwise in future, if I want to reset the PC to factory settings, it will still coming up with blue screen saying that it can not load recovery environment.

Any help will be appreciated !!!

Answer:Re: Toshiba Recovery Media Creator - No HDD Recovery Area

Hi

Fact is that recovery image installation or recovery media creation works if the machine has ?factory settings? only. With other words, everything must be in original condition without any changes. With changes I mean, original OS must be installed and HDD partitions structure should not be changed.

If you try to change original HDD partitions structure the system in general, or Toshiba recovery media creator, will be ?confused? and will not be able to find so called ?markers? that offer information about the exact place on HDD where the recovery image is placed or saved.

Have you done something that could be responsible for this situation?

Good morning everybody,

I've a question about the Recovery Media Creator. Is it possible to download it from toshiba.com? Because I can't find it here.. I deleted it from my Laptop, just thought I didn't had to use it anyway. But now I have to install it again to delete some other things from my laptop.

Hope someone can help me here,

Robin.

Answer:Is it possible to download the Toshiba Recovery Media Creator?

Hi

From my knowledge this is not possible because the Toshiba Recovery Disk Creator is part of the Toshiba image and it can be used only in connection with the available Toshiba image files.

If you would format the HDD and would install the clean Win 7 OS then the Toshiba image files would not be available and the Toshiba Recovery disk Creator will not work.

Hi, I have a new Toshiba laptop and I would like to replace Windows 7 Ubuntu (completely - so there will be no WIndows files left on SSD). I used tool Recovery media creator which I found among utilities preinstaled by Toshiba and I created USB recovery.

I wonder, when I wipe out WIndows and install Ubuntu instead, is the USB I created all I need to switch back to Windows?

To put it differently: When I will want to go back and replace Ubuntu by Windows, will booting from the USB and running the recovery be all I have to do to get rid of Ubuntu and have only Windows?

Thanks

Answer:Question regarding Toshiba's recovery media creator.

> I wonder, when I wipe out WIndows and install Ubuntu instead, is the USB I created all I need to switch back to Windows?

Yes, the usage of Recovery medium (no matter if its Recovery disk or Recovery USB memory stick) would set the notebook back to factory settings.

Factory settings means that you would get the same state like at the first day of purchase.

Not a licensed image, there was no desire to put, the assembly is an assembly, naturally installed such an operating system behaved badly, buggy.

Answer:Portege Z930 - Toshiba Recovery Media Creator issue

Hi

The Recovery Media Creator is an Toshiba tool which requires the Toshiba image files in order to create the recovery disk. The image files are placed on a different partition called HDD recovery partition.

If the HDD has been modified or this partition deleted, the recovery media creator will not be able to find the image files and you will not be able to create such disk.

So my question is: did you reinstall the Win 7 at your own hand? Did you modify the HDD in the past?

Is there any advises or precautions?

Answer:Windows 10 free upgrade and Toshiba Recovery Media Creator

Toshiba recovery media tool creates bootable recovery media for OS version that you got with your notebook. Original recovery image is saved on HDD and what this tool is doing, is just copy on recovery media.

This tool doesn't create image of actual operating system that you use.

Hey guys,
after upgrading my Toshiba Port?g? Z20T from preinstalled Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 (using Windows Update) I cannot create a recovery USB stick (using Toshiba Recovery Media Creator) any more. After starting the Toshiba software and confirming administrator rights I get the message ?No HDD recovery area! The Toshiba Recovery Media Creator cannot be launched.? (Here in German: ?Kein HDD-Wiederherstellungsbereich! Toshiba Recovery Media Creator kann nicht gestartet werden.?) Before upgrading to Windows 10 I successfully created a recovery USB stick from this computer.
I did not format or re-partition the disk. This is the current partition list, created using DISKPART:
Partition ### Type/Typ Size/Gr??e Offset
------------- ---------------- ------- -------
Partition 1 Recovery/Wiederherstellun 1024 MB 1024 KB
Partition 2 System 100 MB 1025 MB
Partition 3 Reserved/Reserviert 128 MB 1125 MB
Partition 4 Primary/Prim?r 226 GB 1253 MB
Partition 5 Recovery/Wiederherstellun 450 MB 227 GB
Partition 6 Recovery/Wiederherstellun 10 GB 227 GB
There are three recovery partitions I have not touched at all. Windows 10 is on the ?Primary/Prim?r? partition, which is the only BitLocker-encrypted one. (I did not find any evidence, that Toshiba Recovery Media Creator has a problem with BitLocker, and I don?t want to switch it off.)
I have installed the latest Version 3.3.00.8502 of Toshiba Recovery Media Creator.
Is the software working on your Windows 10 computer?

Answer:Satellite L755 - Can't use Toshiba recovery disk creator

Hello

That means you can?t start the recovery disk creator or what happened exactly?

The recovery disk creator can?t be reinstalled because it?s only preinstalled on your notebook. I think in this case your only chance is starting the HDD recovery option and reset Windows to factory settings. With out of box settings you can use the recovery disk creator.

Cheers for any help

Answer:Toshiba Recovery Disc Creator isn't working on my Satellite P300

Hello Mikey

The situation is pretty complicated. When you got your notebook the recovery files was saved on second partition in ?HDDRecovery? folder. The second partitions and saved files should not be changed.

If you have done something with second partition or this folder Toshiba recovery creator cannot find these files and recovery media cannot be created. This will works with ?factory settings? only. but I see one other problem there.
Theoretically, you can now install OS again using HDD recovery installation procedure, and with factory state you should be able to create DVD but if the Toshiba recovery creator cannot find the files I am afraid the HDD recovery installation can have the same problem.

If you want you can test it. Try to start HDD recovery installation.

you CAN'T see the hidden partition in my computer. to know it's there you'ld have to go to administrative tools (i'm not sure now) but even then, if it is a recovery partition you better leave it be and don't mess around with it.

Try holding down zero key while your pc is booting. (switch it off, hold down zero key, press power button while still holding down zero key).
it should launch the hdd recovery tool.

It didn't work for me but it might work for you.

Answer:Cannot start Toshiba Recovery Disc Creator on my Satellite A300-15K

Hi

Did you change anything on your notebook?
I mean if your HDD recovery partition has been changed or the data o thin partition has been deleted?

To be honest for me it looks like the OS issue. I think it?s not a single tool issue but I think the operating system has been muddled up?

Maybe you should try to recover the notebook using the Toshiba HDD recovery option and after the new OS installation on the notebook you could try to create the recovery disk again.

In order to start the recovery you have to press the F8 immediately after the notebook has been powered up. Then you should choose the first option called ?Repair My Computer?.
This would lead to a new window and there you could choose ?Toshiba HDD recovery?.

But note; this recovery would format the whole HDD? so maybe you should backup some data before you would start this procedure.

Answer:Satellite A350D-20K - need Toshiba Recovery Disc Creator for Win7

Hi

Toshiba Recovery Disc Creator is a Toshiba tool which created the Recovery disk from the recovery image available on the HDD.
It?s NOT backup tool like Ghost, etc?which allows you to create a image of your preinstalled OS.
If the Toshiba Recovery files are not available on the HDD then the Toshiba Recovery Disc Creator will not work!

Updated my Satellite Z830 to windows 8. In order to do that I had to uninstall the recovery program.
I thought that the program would be reinstalled when running the Toshiba upgrade Assistant - but that did not happen.

How do I update the program again?

Hi!

I have a laptop from a client, that is a Toshiba Satellite Pro C660-239, and i'm having a strange issue.

The original hard disk failed, and as the laptop is out of warranty, we bought a new hard disk, and ordered the recovery media to this model, from our local toshiba repair assistance.

After the setup copied the files to the disk, the imageX fails when restoring the image files with the error:

"the file or directory is corrupted and unreadable".

The hard disk is new, and i tried also with more 2 hard disks, and also with an external cd-rom drive.

I talked with the support from the local repair assistance, and they told me this occurs because the new hard drive ins't compatible with the recovery media?!

One of the new hard disks i tried, was the exact same model than the original hard disk, and the error still occurs, so the hard disk can't be the problem.

Is there any change of the recovery media is corrupted?

Could also be a motherboard problem?

Thank you

Answer:Satellite Pro C660-239 - Error restoring from recovery media

> Is there any change of the recovery media is corrupted?
Of course this is possible.
In case the HDD is OK, the recovery media could be corrupted.

>Could also be a motherboard problem?
I don?t think so?. I presume the HDD is recognized in BIOS properly and the error message says something about corrupted directory. I guess the disk directory is meaning and I think media should be replaced.

I?ve recently purchased a Satellite Pro C850 and, after updating Win 7 and setting everything the way I like it, I tried to create recovery media.

However, when I click on Recovery Media Creator in programs, the file "TRMCLcher.exe" cannot be found. Indeed, I cannot find it anywhere on the computer.

In the directory C:/Program Files/Toshiba/Toshiba Recovery Media Creator, there is an application named "toRDC.exe" but this will not run.

Does anyone have any ideas how to get Recovery Meda Creator to run? I?d rather avoid the hassle of using the Hard Disk partition recovery option to return to factory settings if possible, particularly as I?m doubtful Recovery Media Creator will work even then, considering I?ve not deleted or altered any files to do with the program.

Answer:Satellite A300: Does TRDC Reminder & Toshiba Recovery Disc Creator work after Win 7 upgrade?

Hello Igor

In my opinion you should create recovery disc before you upgrade it to Win7. I have done the same.
Later if something goes wrong you can use your discs and install Vista again using created recovery discs.

I don't understand why you want to wait and create these discs after upgrade. This recovery disc creator doesn?t create recovery image of current state but always the same recovery image you got with your notebook.

Tempro should work in Win7 too.

With recovery disc you can install recovery image and set notebook to ?factory settings?. Please note: when you do this all saved data will be deleted so before you do this back-up all your important data.

When you want to use recovery disc do it on this way:
Start your notebook and press F12 button to enter boot menu
When boot menu is shown on the screen put recovery disc into optical disc drive
Choose CD/DVD in menu and press ENTER button
Just follow menu on the screen.

Do it, test it. Check alone how it works.

Toshiba recovery media creator cannot be downloaded from Toshiba download page. This tool is integrated in recovery image.
I really don?t understand how this exe file can disappear for no reason. With clean preinstalled recovery image it must work properly.

If you didn?t create recovery DVD there is only one way to get it work again: you must install whole OS using HDD recovery installation. After doing this you will have ?factory settings? again and this tool will work properly again.

I hope there is someone here who can help:

My computer is a Satellite L750 x64 based computer and the problem is that the sound disappears after a few seconds when I hear music in Youtube.

I have read in the preinstalled usermanual that I can restore the computer by pressing F8 when the computer starts up, but it does not work.

The computer just continues on to Windows 7.
Now I want to restore the computer to factory standard and will therefore use the Recovery Media Creator but it does not work.

I want to save data on a 32 GB USB stick but it will not recognize the stick.
I know that 32GB is without error because I can easily store / retrieve data from it both with the FAT system and NTSF system.

What am I doing wrong and is there anyone who has a good idea so I can move on?

Answer:Recovery media creator does not recognize 32GB USB stick on Satellite L750?

Even if your USB stick work properly in outside the Recovery Media creator, this does not mean that it should be handled properly by this tool.

I had problems creating recovery DVD even if I was able to burn movie files on the same disk.
As far as I know you should take at least 16GB USB flash memory stick
Usually it should work.

But I?m wondering why you are not able to use HDD recovery option. Did you change something on the HDD?

Answer:Satellite T110-12T - Creating recovery media

Hi OfficerDibble,

Usually creating the recovery medium takes less than one hour.

I don?t know what?s going wrong on your notebook but it could be related to low quality mediums that you use. I have good experience with DVD-R mediums (NOT DVD+R) from Verbatim and TDK. This always works very well and I would recommend such high quality mediums.

I have a 3 year old C650 and the HDD failed. I put in a replacement disk and trie to recover from the media recovery disks I'd created and although it claimed to have re-partitioned the disk and reinstalled windows, windows startup fails when trying to configure devices 'Could not configure windows to run on this hardware'.

After this error the startup sequence goes into an endless loop requesting to start the installation procedure again.

Thinking that my disks may have been corrupt, I ordered a set of recovery disks from Toshiba. Again, these go through the recovery process and again, Windows startup fails in exactly the same place.

Slightly annoying to have spent ?30 for nothing.

Answer:Toshiba recovery Creator VS Windows Recovery Drive

Every Toshiba notebook offered with preinstalled operating system is preinstalled with Toshiba recovery image. This recovery image is created by Toshiba and it is created for certain notebook model.
With other words created recovery image is created for each notebook model with specific hardware platform. Such recovery image contains operating system, all necessary drivers for certain platform and Toshiba specific tools and utilities.

This recovery image is saved on HDD. Using preinstalled Toshiba recovery creator you will create bootable recovery media and using this media you will be able to install this recovery image on HDD. After recovery media installation you will have ?factory settings? again.
This recovery media can be used if there is some problem to start HDD recovery installation, in case when HDD is defective and you need new one or if you make HDD upgrade.

This recovery image has nothing to do with any Windows option. It is Toshiba specific solution for notebook owners.

Hey guys!

For one reason and another I'm considering ordering a Toshiba C660 recovery disk' (Mainly because I would like to sell this laptop and a clean install of Windows 7 is more appealing and secure) but before I go ahead and buy the disk from Toshiba, I presume I will have to enter the windows 7 product key printed on the bottom of my laptop?

The only real problem with this is the key has faded quite badly (Being on the bottom it's seen some use..) and I can't quite make out the last few numbers on the sticker

Is there a way I can get a new key? Or get around entering the key on the new install of windows?

For those interested, a photo of the sticker is below, maybe someone with better eyesight could help?

Answer:Toshiba C660 Recovery Disk - Few Questions

I removed the image, because if anyone can read the key - they can use it and put on the internet for anyone to use

Use this program and you will get the key

you can also use Belarc - System Management For The Internet Age. Software license management, IT asset management, IT security audits and more.
to get the key

Also goto the toshiba site and download all the drivers for the PC and put them on a Disk - that will make it easy to re-install any drivers if needed.

Also you could probably make the recovery DVD your self - if the PC has a recovery partition
You should have a recovery manager to create the media

have a look at
Control Panel
Administrative Tools
Computer Manager
Disk Manager

should see if there is a partition called recovery

My daughter's laptop keeps freezing; I have used the internal `Repair' to set it back to the factory settings, but it is still the same. I have been told that it is a common symptom of a faulty hard drive, for which I was quoted approx £170.00 to replace and install the operating system. I am not a computer technician, but as I was a tv engineer, so feel that fitting a new HDD is within my capabilities, and as a replacement HDD from Toshiba is £80, this seems the logical thing to do; however before I buy a new HDD, can anyone tell me if it is correct that the freezing may be the result of it failing? I would just like the opinion of other people with computer knowledge before I spend my money, and I will not blame anyone if I choose to follow their advice and it doesn't cure the problem.
Any advice would be very welcome.

FReeezing PC

Overheat due to faulty / blocked fans
PSU voltages (not applicable to laptops)
Household power surges fridge etc switching on/off (does it freeze when running on battery only?)
faulty memory stick try memtest click here virus or spyware scan for both especially if shutting down with in a few minutes of switch on or internet use
driver conflicts especially graphics cards get the latest drivers for your equipment.

You can run a check on the drive. In explorer right click the drive select properties - Tools tab - check drive.
It may also freeze if there are a lot of windows open at the same time and cpu is at 100%
Or if there is not much spare space on the drive.
Model of toshiba laptop? Most hard drives ae easy to change as located under a cover on the base , some are harder to get at as may be under the keyboard. We can probably find a Youtube video or strip down instruction easy enough.
If it really is the drive then you an image the whole drive to an external drive using the free Macrium reflect make the rescue media from the same program - fit a new drive and restore the image to the new drive.

hi there, yesterday i upgraded my toshiba laptop . it had the pre-installed windows 7 home premium. i upgraded to windows 7 ultimate. 64 bit. after letting the cd run its course and it installed ,i find i can no longer go online ? in the device manager there are yellow triangles next to ethernet controller and network controller . when trying to go online i keep getting ' windows did not detect a properly installed network adapter. if you have a network adapter you will need to re-install the driver '. i,m by no means a computer whizz so any help would be greatly appreciated..... cheers.

p.s the laptop is a toshiba satellite C660-18C and model number (part no.) is PSC0LE-01U00JEN.
it came pre-installed with windows 7 home premium. i have the windows 7 ultimate discs. 32 and 64 bit.

Answer:which drivers do i need for toshiba satellite C660-18C

Hi phant0m2012,

have you tried right clicking on the driver with a yellow triangle and select update this driver?

Normally there shouldn't be this kind of a problem on a newly installed system, or at least the computers I've installed this problem always appears later on.

Here is the latest lan driver for your laptop: support1.toshiba-tro.de/tedd-files2/0/lan-20101130110923.zip

Do you have another computer where you could download and then move it over to your current one?

Cheers!

Hey,

So basically i have a Satellite C660, and it came loaded with a iso on drive D. So whenever i need to clean my system i can just use the iso from drive d and it will be like new again. However i hate all this toshiba bloatware it installs and all other stupid stuff, so i was wondering if i got a windows 7 disk, and like booted the laptop up from the disk, and installed windows 7 from it without all the stupid stuff, would everything still work as normal? or what?

Thanks.

Answer:Satellite C660 - Can I use own Win7 without Toshiba bloatware?

Generally speaking you can do with your notebook whatever you want and nobody force you to use preinstalled stuff. You can install own Win7 version and if you install all necessary drivers it will works without any problems.

Please note: for this own Win7 version you must have valid licence for product activation and before you start installation create recovery DVD for recovery image back-up. After your Win7 installation you will not be able to start recovery image installation from HDD.

What I do, and can also recommend to you and all other people, is preinstalled OS optimization. Use original Win7 but remove all stuff you don?t need. After doing this you will have original, activated OS that will run much faster and without some ?useless? stuff.

Close these applications and click retry to cointinue. SmartFaceVWatcher.exe


Please could some explain what i need to do?

Answer:Satellite C660 - Toshiba face recognition

Hi

SmartFaceVWatcher.exe belongs to the Toshiba software and I think this related to face recognition utility.
To be honest I?m not quite sure what cause the error message but I recommend doing this;
- Uninstall face recognition utility
- Clean the OS using CCleaner (its freeware tool)
- Reboot several times and install the face recognition utility again
- Reboot the notebook, run once again CCleaner and then start the face recognition utility

Good luck

This question relates to a Toshiba Satellite Pro C660-1UX Laptop running Windows 7 Home Premium Service Pack 1.

Some of the onboard keys (E, T, U, I, O, A, B, N, together with the Enter key) fail to register. All of the other keys tested so far appear to register normally.

When connecting an external USB keyboard, all keys function properly. However, when using either the onboard keyboard or the external USB keyboard, it is necessary to hold down whatever key is selected for approx 2-3 seconds in order for its character to register. This makes typing incredibly slow and is understandably unacceptable.

I've checked device manager looking for errors, but am unable to find any. The driver for the keyboard is listed as installed and working properly, and driver update says that the latest version is in already in use.

I have also scanned for viruses using Malware Bytes and Spybot, and also with the laptops own pre-installed antivirus software. All of the full system scans return a no threat found message.

I have read that the keyboards on these machines are prone to failure, which could answer why only certain onboard keys function. The fact that all keys on the external USB keyboard work would seem to confirm this. However, the fact that both onboard and external keyboard is affected by the same slow keypress might also suggest a bios problem - but as this laptop is several years old and has been working perfectly, why would bios suddenly cause this problem.

Hello There,

I recently purchased a Satellite C660/C660D everything is fine, apart from one or two minor issues (which this thread is about). Firstly, The laptop was and still is littered with loads of TOSHIBA random software, below is a list:

+TOSHIBA Assist+
+TOSHIBA Bulletin Board+
+TOSHIBA ConfigFree+
+TOSHIBA Disc Creator+
+TOSHIBA Face Recognition+
+TOSHIBA Flash Cards Support Utility+
+TOSHIBA Hardware Setup+
+TOSHIBA HDD/SSD Alert+
+TOSHIBA Media Controller+
+TOSHIBA Media Controller Plug-in+
+TOSHIBA Online Product Information+
+TOSHIBA Recovery Media Creator+
+TOSHIBA Recovery Media Creator Reminder+
+TOSHIBA ReelTime+
+TOSHIBA Service Station+
+TOSHIBA Supervisor Password+
+Toshiba TEMPRO+
+TOSHIBA Value Added Package+
+TOSHIBA Web Camera Application+

Is there a pre made ISO recovery image somewhere or do I have to make my own, because if I decide to unisntall some of these programs I might need it at a later date?

The second issue is with the TOSHIBA Accessiblity application which shows the FN keys, it does not seem to start. It worked the first day then I disabled all TOSHIBA applications from startup and I get the following error: "Registry is missing or may be broken.", I dont know why!

I have tried cleaning the registry, so the registry isnt broken.

*Thanks in Advance*

Answer:Satellite C660 - TOSHIBA Accessibility Error

Hi Humza,

I?m happy to hear that you?re an owner of Toshiba notebook too and you discovered the forum here. We can discuss everything about Toshiba notebooks, that?s interesting :)

I will try to help you to sort this out:

1.Yes, there is a premade recovery image to restore factory settings with all driver and tools on your notebook but important is you burn this image on a blank DVD using preinstalled recovery media creator. You will get a disk with an image of Windows with all drivers and tools => ?out of box settings?. So the same settings as you purchased the computer.

2.I think the FN keys don?t work anymore because you disabled some important Toshiba tools they are necessary for FN keys. For FN keys the startup items ?TOSHIBA Button Support? and ?TOSHIBA Flash Cards? are absolutely necessary so you should enable them and restart the computer.

Hi Tech Guys,
I have a friends laptop that I am trying to fix, their laptop HDD is failing which has been confirmed by Crystalmark and the Toshiba HDD/SDD monitor tool. I have a spare HDD lieing around which I would like to replace it with but I want to clone/backup the files first. I tried using acronis clone image but when I place the HDD in the laptop it does not recognise the new HDD, could it be due to the fact that the HDD has to be a OEM HDD set as the OS drive? I'm stuck as the laptop will not allow me to use my external HDD to backup the files manually. Not sure what to do next even tried to backup the files via my network using easy to transfer tool but it cannot find my PC please help thanks.
 

Answer:Solved: Toshiba Satellite C660-18C - HDD failure

When you clone with acronis, there are some things you need to do;
1 Boot the system using an acronis boot CD/flash drive. I always recommend doing a clone, image, etc from the boot disk rather than from within windows. It just removes one more layer of complexity from the task.
2 The new hard drive must be blank ie no partition info on the drive at all. You may need to zero fill the drive IF it was previously used.
3 Select source [old drive] and destination [new drive]
4 Complete the clone process and shutdown. DO NOT reboot with both drives connected.
5 Swap hd and pw ON. Make sure drive letters are correct, system boots without errors, etc.

Since this is a laptop, I would do the clone with A/C pw connected. Once finished with the clone, shutdown and remove both A/C and battery prior to swapping drives. Modern systems apply pw even when OFF so you want to be sure there is no pw applied when you are swapping drives or working on the system. Most [if not all] of the time, swapping drives in a laptop with the battery installed would not hurt anything however completely removing pw prior to working on the system is a VERY good habit to get into.

Good health. On the laptop TOSHIBA C 660, replaced the hard drive and, as a fact, the OS flew down (Windows 7 SP1 HB x 64). Installed not licensed, there was no way out, on the Microsoft website, to download the image failure, the key from the laptop is not suitable. Not a licensed image, there was no desire to put, the assembly is an assembly, naturally installed such an operating system behaved badly, buggy. Done, and now the laptop does not work. In the service center installation of OS and drivers costs 3500 rbl. Offensively. So I'm looking for help on the forum. Please, kindly request help. Thank you.

Adobe After Effects always crash on startup.
It says it cannot initialize OpenGL and that I should contact the manufacturer of the Graphics adapter.

So I contact Intel because I got a Intel Hd Graphics adapter but they say the driver I already have is custom tuned for Toshiba. So I search on Toshiba but cannot really find any useful link.

Should I install OpenGL manually or can I disable it somehow without starting After Effect?

Answer:OpenGL driver for Toshiba Satellite C660-1J2 ?

Hi

OpenGL is a standard API for writing software for 2D or 3D computer graphics.
OpenGL is an open source product but DirectX is released by Microsoft and mostly DirectX is part of the graphic card driver and not OpenGL.

However, you cannot ?download and install? OpenGL to use it within the graphic card driver? the OpenGL needs to be implemented in the driver?

Mostly it?s done by graphic card manufacture.
Therefore you will need to check the Intel page to get an driver from Intel which supports OpenGL because the notebook supports the Intel (HM55) HD graphics.

This link detects which driver updates are relevant to your computer and then helps you install them quickly and easily.

I bought a VGA cable to connect my laptop to my TV in order to mirror what ever is on my laptop screen. My TV did not pick up anything when I checked the Sources.

I opened the "Action Centre" on my laptop and selected "Project". I changed the current setting of "Duplicate" to "Second Screen Only", this caused my laptop screen to go black when the VGA cable was connected. When I disconnected the VGA cable my laptop screen came back on. This frustrating because I want to change it back to "Duplicate" but it is impossible to navigate while the VGA cable is plugged in because of the black screen.

note that when i changed it to "second Screen Only" my TV still did not pick up my laptop.

any solution for this?

Answer:toshiba satellite c660 black screen on xp

Hi mw_86 and welcome to TSG.

Have you tried an external Monitor ? I would do that first if possible and if it's display is good carry on below.

With those symptoms if that model has an Inverter I would try switching it with a known working one.
You should find some on Ebay. (I've had good luck even with used ones).

If it does have an Inverter it could be the backlight instead but that's usually much more difficult to replace.

If it's an LED model (ie no Inverter or Backlight) I would guess either the LEDs have failed or they aren't getting power from the motherboard.

Hey ive got a C660 here,
So my sister installed windows 8 and deleted the original windows 7 partition and now she wants to go back to windows 7 but whenever she presses F8 and goes into 'repair my computer' the toshiba hdd recovery wizard isnt there anymore. How can I get this back? The HDD Recovery partition is still there though. Any ideas?

Cheers.

Answer:Satellite C660 - missing Toshiba HDD Wizard

HDD recovery installation works with ?factory settings? only. After Win8 installation this will not work anymore. Recovery image can be on the HDD but it is not possible to start HDD recovery image installation.

Only way to install recovery image again is usage of recovery DVD. I presume your sister didn?t create it in the past. Now she must order original recovery DVD from https://backupmedia.toshiba.eu/landing.aspx

Hello

I don't know what is wrong there but only thing you can try is to install operating system with recovery image in hope after clean OS installation this tool will work properly.

The recovery image is saved on second HDD partition and to start recovery installation press F8 after starting your notebook up. In advanced boot options choose the first option ?Repair my Computer?. When System recovery options are shown please choose the last one ? Toshiba recovery option. After doing this just follow the menu on the screen.

When OS is installed try to use Toshiba Recovery Disc Creator. I recommend you to use high quality DVD-R media.
