I am no computer buff and know a few basics but not much else. I bought my son a Toshiba Satellite M40 PSM40L really cheap and got it home to find that it was infected. I have replaced the hardrive and reinstalled windows xp but I am unable to connect to the internet. When I took a look at the deice manager I found a series of qusetion marks under other devices i.e. ethernet controller, Mass storage controller, Multimedia Audio controller, network controller, PCI Modem, Unknown device, Video controller (VGA compatible)
My brother in law seems to think that these drivers are missing but I do not know how to begin to find them and have been going around in circles all day trying to fix the problem.
If anyone has any advice then I would very much appreciate it.

Hi, I've looked around about this problem on here and other sites but don't really know what I'm looking for so can't find anything.
I'm on a Toshiba Satellite - Windows Vista. (If you need any other information please tell me where to find this as this is all I can see on the laptop front)
The computer was fine until I unistalled a Softonic Toolbar that I don't know where it came from and didn't want it. After that I restarted the computer and it went downhill from there.
All my shortcuts went like this:

I have already reinstalled Firefox.
When I click on a shortcut I get this:

When I click on the start menu and go into All Programs to click on the actual name of the thing I want to open it still says the above boxed message.
I've gone into 'Programs and Features' on the control panel and Gimp and my Canon programs and Malwarebytes are all there but I just can't open them??
I also run IE on this computer as it's really my partners and I'm just using it because my Dell is broken so I use Firefox on it. However his IE search bar went missing but I reinstalled Google search bar, don't know if that's related.
I don't think I've done anything and I don't know what's up with it all.
If you need anymore information please ask though I'm not overly technical.
Thanks for reading and any help anyone can be.

I have a Toshiba Satellite 2595 - CDT Notebook Computer and I recently lost my Windows XP Pro operating system (it crashed) and I went to install another (an earlier legal version) in the same computer and it wouldn't boot from the CD. Instead I get this message across the screen saying "NTLDR IS MISSING". I think it"s a bios problem. Anyway, I CANT LOAD ANY OS ON TO MY COMPUTER NOW and I'm not an expert with bios. So, my question is: What will it take to get the operating system working again. If possible, (and if it's not too much trouble) , a brief step by step instruction on what to do.

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.

So well, I kind of rode myself into a lot of trouble. More and more as i applied more pressure to solving a certain problem.
The result is a complete wiped disk, wiped off all recovery data, so i cant get back to a former state.

I organised the disk with diskpart commandos.
i have a bootable windows 10 usb stick, from which i intend to install it freshly.
But the installation always fails at the end saying "Boot configuration couldnt be updated".
I tried to build the boot data from scratch. but even that fails. most likely as there is no finished windows installation available.

How can i get my System back to work? Please help. I invested about 20 hours with this now.

A Face Recognition software is available on the driver page too.

i just installed XP on a second-hand A30/PSA33E laptop (dont have a recovery CD) from scratch.
Also i added all the drivers from Toshibas driver-page.
Everything worked nice - except audio and modem (exclamation mark in XP device listing),
because XP refused to install the drivers from Toshibas web site ("not the right driver for this hardware").

After investigating the thing further (i work as a programmer, so i know that stuff)
i could figure out that XP is right - the drivers don't fit the hardware in my laptop.

For example - PCI vendor-ID for the modem is 0x1002, device-ID is 0x434D,
but if you look at the ".inf"-files from the (two) avaiable modem-drivers for the A30
this PCI-device is not supported by any of the two drivers.

For audio i could use the Realtek AC97 audio-drivers from the Realtek website as a workaround,
but for the (soft-)modem i have no idea on how to find a working driver.

Does anyone have a suggestion on how to solve this problem?

Answer:Satellite A30 PSA33E - correct sound and modem drivers missing on Toshiba page


I cannot believe that you are not able to install the modem driver.
Since several years the A30 and the drivers are available on the market and all drivers functioned.
So, in my opinion it?s a only a installation issue.

All drivers, tools and utilities must be installed in the right order!
The chipset utility is important and should be installed at the beginning.

You ask for modem driver??? Well, I found on the Toshiba page modem drivers for different countries.
For example; the 2122ALL05 and 31116ALL5 driver version is available for United Kingdome. Check these both versions.

In my knowledge the notebook uses modem chip ?Askey? from Agere Company.
If you want you can search for an driver which supports this kind of chip

Good luck

Neighbour's son's laptop died. He had games he liked to play. I suggested a caddy which she bought and connected to her PC. All the files and folders can be seen, but games won't run. Thoughts, please.

Answer:HDD in a caddy - am I missing something?

Yes, I'm afraid you are missing something.
The games would need to be installed from the original disk onto her PC in order to run. She wouldn't be able to run MS Word from the disk-in-a-caddy either. If there are documents on that drive, they'd be openable, but would use the software installed on the host machine.

Hey all,

My hard drive died on my main rig, which could access everything fine, just before I went on vacation for a week roughly. When I came back, I used my notebook on my network via a wired connection instead of my desktop, and I noticed that many times, links would give a Page Cannot Be Displayed error, but if I hit refresh they would come up fine. Even on the same page, some images would be missing, or on, one or two of the frames wouldn't show up, or when I clicked to login it would get stuck on the forwarding page and say it couldn't be displayed. Now that I got my new desktop setup up and running, preparing for SLI, I noticed it too was doing the same thing.

I have a set internal IP address, the router I use is set for everything properly, and I am using the same settings as far as I remember on the new setup as I was with the old desktop. The internal IP is set for what it is on the router along with the desktop's MAC address, and the gateway/DNS is set on the desktop to use the router ( Any ideas on what could be wrong?

Answer:Some pages load fine, others have parts missing/frames missing, etc.

I'd run CCleaner just to blow out temp internet files.

For DNS...I prefer entering the ISPs DNS servers, not using the router for the DNS server. Some routers do OK with that, others don't relay as well. So log into your routers web admin, hit the status tab..and jot down the 2x DNS servers you see on the WAN interface. Use those for your rigs DNS servers.

I have cca 6 years old laptop Toshiba Satellite L350.

Now I decided to get SSD for OS instead HDD. So I bought SSD Crucial MX100 128GB and place it where was HDD. For HDD I bought DVD caddy SilverStone Treasure TS09.

On SSD I install Windows 8.1 Pro MSDNAA (without having HDD in laptop). After that I place HDD in DVD caddy and run laptop. From now Windows is not working properly, when it comes on Desktop it freezes, only thing I can is open Task manager.

Why now laptop do not work properly?
Is problem in DVD not suitable for my laptop?
What can I do?
Do I have to change Bios properties?

Thanks, and sorry for my English...

Answer:Cannot use my Satellite L350 with ODD caddy

In the past several people have reported about such issue. Problem is that Toshiba doesn't support such additional adapters and all people use some third part caddies. In your case I think there is some compatibility problems.

If you have some time use advanced search option on this forum and try to find similar threads.
I use additional HDD but as external one.

It is not known to me that some BIOS settings can be changed about that.

Usually every notebook manufacturer offers list of compatible accessories and parts that can be used on certain notebook model. As far as I know such parts Toshiba doesn?t offer for upgrade so with this you are on your own.
With other words you will be very lucky if someone on this forum has the same notebook model, use identical part and can confirm that it works perfectly.

I want to add an SSD drive in the 2nd drive bay of my P500-1F8, but need a "caddy" carrier to hold it in. I have removed both HDD bay lids, the currently unused bay does have SATA connections (but no caddy), but the caddy must be different to the presently used one, as two screws are used to hold it in place, whereas the HDD is held in place with only one screw on the caddy.

I intend to use the SSD as a boot disk only, and use the current 640GB HDD for storage. I would have thought, with a laptop this expensive, the caddy would be included, it's only a cheap piece of pressed tin when all's said and done!!

Any help on this would be greatly received as I really want to add an SSD, but don't want to spend a fortune on a large capacity one that would allow me to store all my music etc,
Thanks in advance, Roo

This SP is very, very old notebook model so I don?t think you can order it somewhere. Try to check eBay. There you can find many different parts for old notebook models. In worst case buy one defective SP 6100 and use it for parts.

I don?t think so but you can check it alone. You can remove HDD very easy. HDD cover is fixed with one screw. When HDD cover is removed, remove the HDD pack by pulling the vinyl grip attached to the HDD pack.

I have removed the blanking piece from the dvd drive bay and replaced it with a caddy. In the caddy is a 120GB SSD. The SSD works perfectly when the OS is Windows 10 and I can use it for data. At this stage I do not want to swap drives.

When booting into Linux the drive is never seen. The boot order is the same as is in Win10, HDD, USB, DVD. At every boot I get the message:

If I then boot into Win10 and then boot back into Linux, the SSD is found, can be partitioned and mounted correctly. If I then shut down and boot back into Linux, the SSD has gone! Why should it need win10 to allow Linux to find it?

The BIOS is the latest and the SSD firmware is the latest.

It appears that Linux does not detect the drive on its own. I have tried every suggestion I can find in Linux forums to no avail and was wondering if another Toshiba user had managed to get a drive, not necessarily an SSD, working in a caddy.

Does anyone know where I can buy a caddy / tray in the UK so I can fit a second hard drive into the empty bay in my laptop?

Thanks in advance.


Answer:Satellite A300D-15B - Where can I buy HDD caddy/tray?


Such HDD caddy that you mean you can get from an authorized service provider. They sell all original Toshiba spare parts and there you can buy one.

By the way, here you can search for nearest authorized service provider: > Support & Downloads > Find an authorized service provider

I would like to know if any of the two HDD slots runs on SATA-3.
From what i found, the intel chipset provides a SATA-3 interface. Is any made available on this Toshiba notebook?

Thank you.

Answer:Satellite P70-A-11Q - SATA III or SATAII on HDD Caddy 2

Since some others might need this and Toshiba will be unable to answer it.
I am giving the answer here.

The interface where the primary HDD is connected is a SATA-3. While the secondary slot is SATA-2.
So in case of an SSD insall, just swap the disks.

My daughter has an eldely Toshiba S2800-200 laptop.
It is broken where the power supply lead enters the machine and she has been quoted ?100 to have it repaired!
She has already bought a new computer so repair is not an option.

The Toshiba, however, contains some files (mainly photographs, music etc.) which she would like to keep, but getting the files out of the laptop and on to her new machine is a problem.

My thought is to buy a cheap USB caddy from somewhere like eBay, remove the hard drive and use the caddy to download the photos. etc. to her new machine via USB.

In order to buy the correct caddy I need to know the full spec. (diameter, capacity etc.) of the Toshiba's hard drive and I don't have a clue!

Can anyone here point me towards the spec. of the hard drive on a Toshiba S2800-200 please?

Answer:Satellite 2800-200 - What external caddy can I use for the HDD

I assume the Satellite 2800 series supports IDE HDD controller and therefore the HDD would be also an 2.5? IDE HDD.
Therefore you should look for an USB IDE HDD case?

What you need is 2,5? SATA HDD caddy. You can buy it in every PC store or order by eBay.

Few months ago I bought one from eBay for incredible 5 euros only.

I have replaced the original HDD and installed a new SSD which works fine.
Installed the W7Pro and all updates.

I do not use my CD-Writer so I replaced the CD-drive and installed a caddy with my old HDD to have more diskspace.

When I boot my laptop I see a message CD-ROM ERROR.
In device manager the caddy and or the HDD are not shown.

I tried to change settings in the BIOS (according Toshiba utility the latest version) but even in the Bios is no information about the present SSD or the installed HDD. (or the CD-Drive when I re-install this drive again)

What is wrong here? Do I need an updated BIOS that allows the 2nd HDD?
Or do I overlook a setting somewhere?

NB In the BIOS the HDD drive settingis according ACPI, in the listing below it is mentioned as IDE device.
When I enter in the BIOS IDE in stead of ACPI I still see the CD-ROM ERROR during boot and after this message the screen is blue and no further activity.

Answer:Satellite Pro S300 - HDD in caddy is not recognized by BIOS

As far as I know Toshiba doesn't offer such caddy for your notebook model so I presume you use some third part product. Is that correct?
I mean if this is not working correctly it is not Toshiba related issue. Caddy manufacturer must offer support and explanations.

As far as I know BIOS update has nothing to do with it. It is compatibility problem I think.

My son's keyboard keys were broken before, but was fixed for free because it was still under warranty but it took the manufacturer to do it like a couple of weeks which my son hated. Now another key is broken where the nylon plasctic spring-like mechanism is missing. Just wondering where we can buy it? The first time it broke, I called the manufacturer and ask for those parts only to find out that what they are sending me are the complete qwerty keys themselves not the parts underneath them. Since it was still under warranty I decided to send them the laptop and have it fixed. I know I can fix it myself if I have the parts without having my son computer hungry for a couple of weeks. any suggestion as to where I can get those plastic part sunderneath the keyboard keys aside from the manufacturer, they must be sort of generic or universal, aren't they?

Answer:Where to order Toshiba plastic parts underneath keyboard keys

Most laptop DVD drives are the same with the exception of the door. If you don't have the old laptop DVD door to swap it with you may want to google laptop parts tons of sites will come up and you can usually find the parts by model number of the laptop. Just make sure you do a BBB check on the companies before ordering to make sure you are not dealing with a scam company. You may have to look at quite a few before you find the parts for your particular machine.

This means that your Sat 2400 doesn?t support a WLan antenna and therefore you will be not able to use the internal WLan card.

I doubt this is possible? I read several threads here in the forum and mostly a CPU upgrade is not possible due to a overheating issues and due to a BIOS compatibility issues.

So... I bought a Lenovo Yoga 710 (Model: 80TX) from Best Buy a couple of days ago. I bought it brand new (not open-box, refurbished or anything like that). I noticed that the exterior sides of both hinges (the side closest to the edge of the laptop for both hinges)  look exposed and I feel like there should be a little plastic piece or something covering the exposed side of the hinge. The reason I find this weird is because the interior sides of both hinges DO have a little black piece of plastic covering them. Also, one other thing to note - the "." key on my keyboard keeps on popping off very easily. See the attached pictures for reference. SO... what do you think?

Hey all,
Got an odd one here. Trying to figure what to do. I have a Dell XPS 8700 desktop. I got it from a store being liquidated. It appears to have been shipped with no service tag, no express code and the only parts inside are the motherboard, power supply, and some cables/fans. 
I have identified the motherboard as dp/n 0KWVT8
Obviously, I cannot test the board without the cpu and I don't have a spare. The store is gone and liquidations do not allow returns, besides I'd rather get this working- eventually. Dell, so far hasn't been much help, no service tag or express code. I get to call back on Monday to a department that is closed today.  I also don't want to put too much money into it- in case something on the board is not working. 
Any thoughts and does anyone have the full specs for the board.

Answer:What to do with XPS 8700 with no service tag, missing parts

Specs for the XPS 8700 are here. Obviously, these are "generic" and won't tell you the exact specs of this system when it came from Dell.
You'll need a CPU that's supported by the Intel Z87 chipset, heat sink and Dell CPU fan, PCI-e x16 video card, monitor, keyboard and mouse,  at minimum, to get into BIOS setup, which might still have the Service Tag listed.
But having the Service Tag doesn't really do you any good, especially if the 1-year warranty expired. And even if the warranty is still active, you won't be able to get it  transferred to you unless the previous owner initiates the transfer. 
So in reality, assuming the motherboard is good, you can rebuild this system to your liking with RAM (up to the specified limits), hard drive or SSD, etc.
If you know what version of Windows was previously installed and activated, eg Win 7 64-bit Home or Pro, you may be able to buy a Dell OEM Windows Reinstallation Disk on eBay to install the OS on a hard drive. Assuming it's the identical version as was on the PC, a Dell OEM disk won't require you to have a Microsoft Product key. (You didn't mention if the Microsoft product key sticker is still on the tower.)  Otherwise, you'll have to buy a new product key from MS.

I have some private movies on a hidden folder, and when I hide/unhide the folder to watch, some of the movie shortens. It's really supposed to be longer, but it stops after about 1min. Each movie does about the same thing. If I fast forward by clicking like the middle of the movie (windows media player) it gets further, but still stops a little bit later without showing the full movie. Anyone know what's going on?

are they shortcuts perhaps?

I have been using Microsoft Outlook (from Microsoft Office 2000 Professional Edition) for some time now on a lap top with XP. Lately I have been having trouble – like parts of the template are not there. Specifically the “subject” line does not show up. So all my recent emails are going out with nothing in the subject space. Many people (myself included) do not open emails with no subject.
Looks to me like I need to repair the Outlook program. I am not enough of a computer jock to know how to do that. Can someone suggest a place to find instruction on how to do that?

I am running 64 bit Windows 7 Professional, with service pack 1 installed. This worked at one time, before I upgraded to Professional and added service pack 1 (or at least I set up the backup one time). I tried to change the time to run the automatic backup in "Control Panel - System and Security - Backup and Restore". The link inside the window named "change settings" didn't do anything. So I turned off the schedule thinking that might let me change the settings. Now neither the "change settings" nor the "turn on schedule" links do anything. Now I have to do the backups manually. I am a firm believer in backing things up to a network drive every night. Does anybody know about this issue or know how to fix it? I run 4 different automatic malware / spyware scans every night and I am usually clean except for a couple of tracking cookies.

Answer:Parts of Windows 7 scheduled backup missing

I found another problem with backup that I am having. I get no action when I press the "Back up now" button. Perhaps someone has seen this. I could really use some help on this!

 Hi everyone. I have been waiting for over two weeks now for an on-site repair of my Thinkpad T460 notebook because of missing parts (defective fan). Can you please tell me how to speed up the process? Having to wait for two weeks for service on a business series notebook is a joke.

Answer:Waiting for repair - missing replacement parts

Unfortunately, some of the cheap Chinese made parts used in Lenovo laptops of late are of such low quality that they fail quite often, so even Lenovo cannot keep up with demand, and with the Thinkpad 460, its noisy defective fan issue is well known, so it will proably take some time to get it fixed.

Hi guys.

I've got some idea to replace few parts in My A50-106.

And This is My question. What can i replace :), maybe processor or something else from HW ??

Thx for response.

Answer:What parts can I replace in my Satellite A50-106

You can replace HDD with more capacity and RAM module. This notebook can handle with max 1 GB of RAM. Two memory slots are available. Compatible modules are:
PC2700 512MB (PA3312U-1M51)
PC2700 1024MB (PA3313U-1M1G)

I am not 100% sure but I believe you can also exchange ODD (optical disc drive) with better one. Check please users manuals. Probably there you can find a list of all compatible ODDs.

Good luck!

Looking for compatible processor, memory modules and table the specified type. Unfortunately, the support is not familiar with these types ...

Failed to obtain the serial number (Z7033304R) and model number (PSL48E-01E01MHU) did not specify the TOSHIBA probably very ashamed that these models are launched, or simply the Hungarian users are banned from support ...

Any help is appreciated:

Answer:Re: Satellite Pro S - Where to get spare parts?

Hi masimba,

I don?t know which part you mean exactly but for keyboards there are no single parts available. That means you would need a complelty new keyboard.

Anyway, you should contact an ASP. There you can get all Toshiba parts: > Support & Downloads > Find an authorized service provider

But I can`t seem to find this model on any sites where I might be able to purchase the parts for this upgrade!

Any help please!

Back at Xmas 2012 I stupidly pulled my lap top onto the floor breaking the case and the hard drive.

I have had the case and hard drive replaced by a local pc repair company because of recommendations.
Unfortunately my trust was misplaced and 5 months on I still do not have a decent wifi pick up and I have also discovered that the camera plus light built into the screen face of the lid are missing.
I have been back to the repairer but blank looks and no joy.

I know from taking a look that there is a white plastic multipin socket for at least the camera
So does anyone know from where I can buy spares hopefully for the missing camera and light and the Wifi element.

At the moment I am loathed to part with the R630 because it has proved invaluable when travelling about because it is light and prior to Xmas 2012 ideal for picking up wifi signals in hotels and cruise ships.

Secondly I am in September travelling out to china, hong kong, Japan, & Singapore

Can anyone recommend a modern not so expensive equivalent to the Satellite R630 that I can seek out and purchase?

I did look around prior to the repairs being done and could find anything equivalent under ?1,800.

Hope someone can help out
many thanks

Answer:Where to buy parts for Satellite R630-155?

It is very problematic to find such parts for notebooks, especially for newer notebook models.
Best place to get such stuff is authorized Toshiba provider. They can order such parts but I don't know if they will sell it to you or they order it only if they can repair your notebook.

You can try to contact ASP and ask for help. Addresses and phone numbers you can find on

It is not easy to give you some good advice about other notebook but I think for travelling and extremely mobile usage Satellite Z series can be very good alternative for you.

Check a bit Toshiba site for your country and pick up some info about hardware and price of course.
