Toshiba Satellite C660 WiFi and LAN Driver Problem

Question: Toshiba Satellite C660 WiFi and LAN Driver Problem

Hi Folks,

A colleague passed me his poorly laptop (the Toshiba C660-18C of the title) as he is unable to connect to the internet after the re-installation of Windows 7 HP 32-bit.

Story so far...

His computer was slow - full of junk and stuff - so he asked me if I had a Win 7 disk for him to start again with a clean install.

I provided him with a disk and the re-installation went without a hitch - except now there aren't any drivers for the Ethernet NIC or WiFi and so he is unable to connect by either wired connection or wireless.

I've had a look and can't figure out what the problem is.

Device manager doesn't give any info - nothing like 'Realtek PCIe EE Family Controller' or 'Realtek RTL8188CE Wireless LAN 802.11n PCI-E NIC' that appear on my wife's Toshiba C660. Also there is no 'Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter' (not sure if that is needed). There is no description at all of the hardware.

I have found from the Toshiba UK website the following drivers and installed them, but still no joy.
The Network Device ID Registry Setting Tool, Realtek Semiconductor Corporation LAN Driver, Toshiba Wireless LAN Indicator and Toshiba Hardware Setup.

I went with the Realtek drivers as the Toshiba website lists these as 32-bit. The NICs may be Atheros but the only drivers I could find for them were 64-bit (will they still work on a 32-bit OS?) - and these were on Toshiba Australia's support site.

Several websites have links for what seem to be the correct drivers - but these take you to a German site and return a 404 error.

Any help gratefully received. Otherwise, it seems my colleague has bricked his pc?

Cheers

Zaph

Oh , I've also contacted Toshiba UK via email but 24 hrs later and still no response. Are they likely to reply? Machine originally shipped with Windows Vista and CoA on the underside of the machine is unreadable!

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

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

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

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?
How do I installOpenGl manually?

I have downloaded the latest Graphics adapter driver from you but it doesn't help.
All I want to do is to start a popular Adobe product so I believe many people have this problem.

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 have a Toshiba Satellite C660-28T.

The hard drive has failed. I have phoned Toshiba Support who are sending me out a replacement.

However as an interim measure I was going to put in my spare hard drive and do a fresh install of another operating system which I have a spare key for (Win 7).

However I can't get past the "Load Drivers" screen as the laptop didn't come with any driver discs.
I can't find the relevant drivers from the Toshiba website (I did try some intel drivers which I thought were the right ones but and it says they are unsigned and just reverts back to the load drivers screen).

I have made recovery disks but obviously can't use them on the new hard drive as it doesn't have the recovery partition.

Any ideas on where I can get the appropriate drivers from?

Thanks

> I have made recovery disks but obviously can't use them on the new hard drive as it doesn't have the recovery partition.

If you have made a recovery disk using the preinstalled Toshiba recovery media creator tool, then you have just to boot from this disk in order to start the installation.

I get 2 Plug and Play Monitors - 1 ok, the other cannot start (Code 10)

Also the laptop is not going into standby.
The display goes blank on standby but the laptop can be operated.
I also get a ACPI error Event ID: 43 - The system sleep operation failed.

Unfortunately no XP Drivers listed for this laptop.

I'm thinking this might be related to incorrect Graphics Driver installed.
Device ID for my onboard graphics is:
PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_0116&SUBSYS_FC901179&REV_09

I'm currently using Intel HD Graphics 6.14.10.5384 - The driver doesn't say it has problems in Device Manager.

Device ID for my Plug and Play Monitor which cannot start:
Monitor\LGD02DC

Has anyone successfully installed XP on this laptop and if so what graphics drivers did they use.

Answer:Monitor driver problem with XP on Satellite Pro C660-2CN

Hi

The PCI VEN ID and DEV ID can be useful in order to search on this page:
http://www.pcidatabase.com/

The notebook seems to be equipped with the Intel HD graphics 3000 chip.
So the drivers should be compatible. You should also install the Mobile Intel(R) HM65 Express Chipset driver for Win XP since this chipset is part of the motherboard.

But its interesting that you said that one external monitor work properly and the other doesn?t? do you try to use two external monitors simultaneously?

My friend has a toshiba satellite L645D-S4040. I reinstalled windows 7 on his laptop but when I tried reinstalling the wifi driver it wouldn't work. I tried the realtek, the broadcom, and the atheros, and uninstalled each before I tried a new one. I even rermoved the wifi card and reinserted it, and that did nothing. I reinstalled win7 again and tried all of the above and still nothing happened. What could be wrong here? thanks!

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.

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.

Have a Toshiba Satellite 2435-S255. Installed a mini WiFi card from Broadcom that's 802.11b/g capable. This came out of another laptop of mine and I know it works and it's hardly been used.

I cannot connect to my WiFi router. I'm confident that I have the antenna corrections installed correctly. I have the switch set to on for WiFi on the side of the laptop. I've checked the Device Manager and the Broadcom Network Adapter is listed and shown as working properly. I do have MAC filtering setup on the router but I did get the MAC off of the mini WiFi and have triple check that it was entered correctly into the router. Using a DLink DI-784 which I've had no problems with my other laptop.

Any ideas? Installing this card in my girlfriends Toshiba so I can get her online.
 

Answer:WiFi problem with Toshiba Satellite

First thing you should do is turn MAC filtering off and any other security measures you have in place, encryption for instance. You should try the card in another laptop if possible. Are you using the utility that came with the card or XP wireless ocnfig utility? What is happening? No AP when you scan from the client? In other words, give some more details about your experirence other than it isn't working.

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?

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?

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

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

I am a newbie and have just purchased a reconditioned laptop as above. On trying to connect to wireless network I have found ii cannot. On trying to troubleshoot the issue, the message i get is "Windows did not detect a properly installed network adaptor. If you have a network adaptor, you will need to re-install the driver".
First things first, How do i find if there is a network adaptor installed?
Secondly, if one is installed, how can i download drivers if i am unable to connect to the internet?
The conection box shows a red cross on it too.
Any help appreciated

I have recently installed an Intel 2200 Wireless Card into my Toshiba Satellite 1135-S1552.

The computer recognizes the hardware, and all the software and drivers are working fine.

The problem is when I try to Enable my Radio Switch. I need to be able to press Fn + F2, but on my Satellite the Fn + F2 switch accesses the Battery Mode.

Does anyone know how I can re-map my keyboard, or enable my Radio Switch???

Please help.

Ted
 

Answer:Toshiba Satellite 1135-S1552 WiFi Networking Problem

Perhaps you don't have to press Fn+F2?

On my IBM the radio is controlled by Fn-F4.

And you don't have to use the Fn+x combination anyway. The WiFi connection software can be used to turn on/off the radio. If you don't have any special software then disabling the wireless connection will effectively turn off the radio.

Sorry I wasn't exactly sure where to post this thread

I looked up how to remove this warning that keeps coming up on this forum earlier and followed the procedure someone posted about renaming a file called TWARNMSG.EXE. i couldn't find that file, and as the problems and the make of laptop were slightly different, I thought I'd post my issue.

My laptop is a Toshiba Satellite Pro C660-16W and I have a message that keeps coming up every ~20 seconds headed "System Warning" and reads: "Warning: A problem with the cooling system has been detected. (Next Line) Please turn off the computer immediately, and return it for service."

I have had this warning coming up for months and tolerated it but it has gotten worse and annoyed me for the last time. I can hear the fan, and the computer is not over heating. No other issues arise like the computer slowing down, it just gets in the way of what I am doing, like typing right now. As I have typed, it's already popped up 6-7 times.

Please help soon, this is preventing me from gaming and even other things by now.

Thanks
 

Answer:Repetitive cooling system warning -- Toshiba Satellite Pro C660-16W

I'm going to have your thread moved to a more appropriate forum. Please stay subscribed.

Note: TWarnMsg twarnmsg.exe > Toshiba System Warning Function for Windows 98, Me, 2000 - provides notification dialog when the cooling fan stops ...

This is a valid program, but it is up to you whether or not you want it to run on startup.
---------------------------------------
There are some rogue programs that give fake alerts or 'critical system messages.' But this isn't one of them. It is specific to the brand of system you have. It might be that someone in the other forum has another idea- but my suggestion would be to take it to a show and have them open and clean out the box.

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 was working with my laptop with a external screen connected by HDMI and suddenly the screen started flashing with some green lines and a black backgroud (something as you can see in the video).
I saw in internet that some people had problems doing the update to wion10 so I installed again windows 8 to see if was something related with win10 but the problem persists.
I tried install the GPU from the intel CPU, a Intel 4000HD graphic card, but is not possible use it as a main GPU. I got this problem: "This device is not working properly because Windows cannot load the drivers required for this device. (Code 31)"

Answer:Solved: toshiba satellite pro a120 driver problem

If you don't mind having to reformat your computer if something goes wrong, I have a few suggestions:

Try this and choose the closest model to your computer. I think it's a PSAC1E, but it might still work.

You can also try installing the Vista drivers from here. I wouldn't recommend it for the first thing you try, but it could possibly work, but it would more likely give you a BSOD on your next boot.

Greetings!

I have a problem in installing the ATI vga-driver. I know that only drivers from the Toshiba's site can be used, but they don't even work. I have a Toshiba Satellite C660 1-EF notebook with ATI HD5470, and Windows 7 SP1 x64 installed. I had bought it without an OS, so I didn't get any disks.

After I installed (clean install) the OS, I saw that some devices had been installed with the built in drivers of the Windows (or not even installed). So I decided to download the appropriate drivers. The first problem was, that I couldn't find ATI driver for W7 x64 on the Toshiba's site for this type of notebook. I tried to find a similar laptop, which has the same graphics card. At least I could find a driver. But when I wanted to install it, it was closed. It didn't do anything, just closed.

Since that, I have tried several drivers (most of them I downloaded from the Toshiba's site), but the result was the same.

What should I do?

All Windows XP drivers on Toshiba website are for 32bit XP version because 64bit was never supported.

Everything what you can do is testing the Realtek drivers directly:

If it doesn?t work I think you have to contact the external HDD directly. The most NAS devices also have USB port.

Hello all,

So i'm trying to update my graphics driver on a satellite C660 1LD and I'm getting nowhere fast.

The current driver i have is version 8.15.10.2622
Toshiba website offers version 8.15.10.2189 which i'm led to believe is an older version than my current one?

I have tried downloading the newest version from the Intel website however this doesn't work either and i cant actually find what the newest version is from this site. Can anyone offer any advice on how to get this done?

The annoying thing is i went through this process over a year ago to fix a bug on civilization 5. I remember it being a bit of a headache then. The most annoying part is that i cant remember the processes i had to go through to get it done. Doh!

Thanks in advance

Answer:Trying to update graphics driver for Satellite C660-1LD

Hi

Generally speaking you should use Toshiba drivers only. Why? Drivers offered on Toshiba support page are tested and adapted to work with notebook?s hardware. Of course, you can use drivers from GPU manufacturers support page but you must know that newer drivers will increase GPU performance. More performance means more heat and also a bit risk for hardware.

Result can be suddenly shut downs or even hardware damage.
Anyway, I hope you are satisfied with GPU performance with your last driver so I don't understand why you want to update current version. Be happy that everything works well with this ?non-supported? driver version.

Anyway, I?m sure that you know that everything you do is on your own risk so you can do with your notebook whatever you want. I found one interesting article that may help you.
Check it out please - http://www.intel.com/support/graphics/sb/cs-033915.htm

Good luck

Hello all you wonderful people.

I'm writing this post to inquire as to why the display driver for this model hasn't been updated since 2010?
I have been playing a favourite game of mine (Civilization V) on this model. They updated the game with a patch in November and the computer can no longer display the graphics properly because of the old drivers.

I've done my research on the gaming forums to try and fix this and after looking at my dxdiag its become clear that the drivers are out of date. I've been on the Intel website and they have updated drivers for the card (Intel(R) HD graphics), I've downloaded these drivers however the laptop will not install them unless they are Toshiba verified? My questions are..

Why does Toshiba stop me from installing these drivers from Intel's website?
and
How do I get round all this Pfaff and update my graphics drivers?

Many thanks
Tom

As far as I know the driver for TOS1900 is Toshiba x86 ACPI-Compliant Value Added Logical and General Purpose Device.
Install the Value Added Package from Toshiba European driver page and this should fix your issue.

Hi buddy,

What operating system you have installed on your C660? Have you installed newest Service Pack before you started with driver installation?

Usually all drivers for your notebook can be downloaded here:
http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com/innovation/download_drivers_bios.jsp

If you have installed all drivers, no yellow exclamation marks should be in device manager anymore. Have you checked this?

Hello,

I have a Satellite C660 and I, just recently, reformatted it. There was no problem with the reformatting. I installed Windows 7 Ultimate x64 bit. After that, i installed the proper drivers like the LAN drivers. There was no problem until I installed Counter-Strike 1.6. In the Video options of CS, there were 3 choices for renderers, (Software,OpenGL ,and D3D).

http://imgur.com/sqPf4n4

Before the reformat, i was using the OpenGL option. But after that, it seems like the OpenGL is missing.

http://imgur.com/fUiPDqx

i tried to find the cause of this problem online and most of the solutions i found was to update my display driver. Evidently, the updated driver supports OpenGL. (Please explain if i got something wrong as I'm not really a techie).

Browsing online, i found the updated display driver in the Toshiba website. (http://www.mytoshiba.com.au/support/...0j001/download). It is version 8.15.10.2291.

http://imgur.com/OTxOhpq

This is my display driver version right now.

http://imgur.com/u55lCuE

And as you can see, the one in the toshiba site is more up-to-date. I downloaded it and installed it. But after the installation, there was no notification or anything that said my driver was updated. I checked again in the device manager but the driver WAS NOT updated. I also tried to right-click the driver>Update>Look for updates online, but it says it is already the most updated..

Hi buddy,

Ethernet controller driver can be both: WLAN or LAN card. All drivers and tools can be downloaded on official Toshiba website:
http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com > Support & Downloads > Download Drivers

You have installed Windows 7 Ultimate but may I ask you why you haven?t used the Toshiba recovery disk with Windows 7 Home Premium? On this disk are all drivers and tools are installed because it?s an image of factory settings so you don?t have stress with driver and tool installation.

Your corporate standards are pretty old. It should be time for corporate update to new standards. ;)

Anyway, newest notebook models are not supported for old operating systems and newest notebook models are designed for newest operating system. Newest notebook models have newest hardware also designed for newest OS.

Problem is not Toshiba or WXP support. As far as I know even Microsoft doesn?t support WXP anymore.

Check if NVIDIA supports WXP for GeForce 315M.

In short I'm looking to update the graphics drivers for Intel HD Graphics, the current version is 8.15.10.2189, I've tried multiple times to get them from Intel's own site but I'm either downloading the wrong ones or I simply can't find it.

Hi

The notebook supports the Intel Core i3-370M CPU
According to the Intel ARK page where you could check all the CPU specs, the CPU provides the internal Intel HD graphics. This was the first Intel HD GPU release.

I checked the Intel download page and unfortunately, the Intel page does not provide the Intel HD graphics (for Intel Core CPUs 1st gen) anymore.

But I found an newer version of Intel driver on Toshiba EU driver page:

I have a Satellite C660-26z. I am trying to use Trimble/google sketchup (3d modelling programme) but keep getting a "Bug splat" error message.

Google have recommended that I up date my driver, when I try to update from Intel, I get an error message telling me it has been modified by the computer manufacture and to contact them.

My driver is Intel (R) HD Graphics Version =8.15.10.2189
The programme runs well on my 5 year old other computer.

Any suggestions ????

Answer:Satellite C660-26z - Intel graphic driver update is not possible

Hello,

It is well known that you cannot use drivers offered by graphic card manufacturers. Not for mobile computers. Display drivers are modified by notebook manufacturers to offer balance between performance and hardware protection.

What you can try is to check if Toshiba offers newer driver for newer notebook models.
Please check on Toshiba download page - http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com/innovation/download_drivers_bios.jsp
If you can find newer display driver for:
Satellite L775 (PSK6DE)
Satellite R700 (PT314E)
Satellite Pro U630 (PSK01E)

Please post some feedback.

Thanks

Answer:Satellite C660 - Latest Intel graphic driver is from 2012

Hi

Display driver upgrade on mobile machines is pretty problematic. Due to specific design and limited cooling system the temperature must be all the time ?under control?.
New display driver means more performance and more performance means more heat so in worst case GPU can be damaged or your notebook will oft shut down due to critical hardware temperature.

Anyway, I would like to check if newer driver is available on Toshiba support page but you must post full model name of your notebook (C660-xxx).

Have you tried to find or install driver from Intel support page?

Hi

I have a Toshiba Satellite C660-1D7 running Windows 7 64bit Home Premium with Intel Core i3 [email protected] GHz CPU and 4GB RAM. I use my laptop a lot for graphics etc. with Adobe CS5 and Corel Paint shop Photo Pro x3 etc.

After only 2 months I got an HDD alert saying it would fail soon. So under warranty 2 weeks ago Toshiba arranged for an authorized dealer to collect and replace the HDD which they did. Ever since then I cannot use my graphics software. Now, I remember when I first got my laptop I had the same problem and it was to do with my graphics/video card and OpenGL. Toshiba site and my own laptop kept saying that all drivers were up to date. But when I went on Intel site I found that Intel HD Graphics was not up to date. As soon as I updated I was able to use all my graphics programs.

The drivers installed without any problems at all. This time, although I gave a recovery disk to the repair dealer, when my graphics software was not working. I went to Intel site and once again there are more up to date drivers available. However, when I try to install them it says that I now have modified drivers from the laptop manufacturer and I must go to the Toshiba site. Either way, the drivers I need are not on the Toshiba site and I have tried every way possible I think to install the ones I want.

Answer:Satellite C660-1D7 - Installing latest Intel display driver

Hi John,

The problem is that only Toshiba drivers are pretested on your system. Installing other drivers happens on your own risk because they are not tested by Toshiba.

Anyway, just download the drivers on Intel website. If setup.exe file shows you an error message about not compatible drivers install them manually (I know this message from my notebook). Therefore navigate to device manager > right click on graphic card > update driver. Then choose the advanced installation where you can choose the driver and directory yourself. Now you are able to install this driver :)
