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.

many thank for any replies peter

Answer:Satellite C70D-B-30D - Windows 10 upgrade issue

Power off the notebook.

Then power up the unit again and press F12.
Now you should see the Advanced boot menu.
Here choose HDD recovery
Then choose language and keyboard.
Then Troubleshoot -> Advanced options ->Automatic Repair.

Hope it helps.

Hi All,

I have an Satellite C70D-A-11D ... when I use once the FN Key to do a Print Screen or use the Screen-Zoom on the Space Key...

I am not able to use the Keynumbers 1 to 4 neither the space Key to enter a space between two words...it always change between the bigger screen solution or the normal solution...

I only can change the FN Key again after change the settings in Display settings and after a reboot...
So I cant use FN without a reset with the F1 to F12 Key use and a reboot...

Normaly the FN Key works only if it is pressed...if not the normal Function of the Keys 1 to 4 or F1 to F12 will work if configured in the settings, or not?

What to do?

Kind regards
J?rgen

Answer:Satellite C70D-A-11D Function Key deactivate after use

First of all you can change between the special function key mode (without pressing FN key) or normal (standard) mode (Hold Fn first to use standard F1-F12 functions.)

This function can be changed in BIOS.
In BIOS go to Advanced -> System configuration

Check this option.

Anyone any idea how to solve this, and make the upgrade work ???

Hi there,

I was bought the above model of laptop for an early Christmas present which usually sits down in the living room, my old Satellite Pro sat down there with no issues however with this device the wireless signal is very low and I appear to be having it sitting right next to the wireless router (which is located upstairs in my sons bedroom), I wondered if there's any steps I could take to improve the signal?

It baffles me how a new system has such a poor wireless signal when my old Satellite Pro which was 6 years old had no wireless issues whatsoever.

My other issue is from the moment I switched the laptop on (yesterday when it was delivered) the updates on Windows Update are slow or don't start at all, is this an issue or just normal?

I'd appreciate any help or input at all, thank you.

I have a C70D-A-107 and want to speed up this notebook. Already placed 4gb extra memory so the notebook has now 8gb internal. I doubt whether it is usefull to put in 2x8gb. I think the processor is just to slow. It has a AMD E1-2100 inside. Is it possible to put in another (faster) processor?

Answer:Speed-up Satellite C70D-A-107

The Satellite C70D-A-107 was equipped with an AMD Essentials E1-2100 Accelerated CPU (1,00 GHz, 1 MB L2 Cache)
It’s not the fastest CPU therefore the notebook performance isn’t the best…

But CPU upgrade isn’t officially supported by notebook manufacturer... therefore I don’t think that you will be able to upgrade the CPU…

I read about successful Intel CPU upgrades but did not meet anyone who was able to perform an upgrade with an AMD CPU

My wive purchase this computer coupple of months ago. It was from the beginning ferry slow on windows 8
The wurst laptop we ever had. We feel robbed of our money.

2 months ago we started with Ubuntu. It Still slow. IS there anybody with the same problems?

Greetings

Marco

Answer:Satellite C70D-A-108 is very slow

Hi Marco

I don't have this notebook model and cannot confirm what you wrote but fact is that almost all new notebooks are pretty slow at the beginning. Many applications are set to start with Windows and this, of course, slows down boot time.
Windows updates are also set to automatic so in the background the machine will download and install many updates so this will slow down your machine rapidly.

In my opinion you should install original OS that you got with this machine and optimize it a bit.
Remove all useless stuff, change start-up option and disable automatic Windows updates.
In the past I have noticed that original preinstalled antivirus is also responsible for notebook?s performance so I don't use original preinstalled application but my own version of Avir Antivir and it runs perfectly.

Check all these options and I hope your machine will run much better than before.

Hello,
Just bought a Satellite C70D with Win 8.1. Everything works (as far as I know until know), except boot from DVD. I disabled in the bios the Secure Boot and changed the boot order to DVD first, then USB and then HDD. The DVD drive starts, but then it skips to the HDD and Windows is started. First time I tried there was a message like "DVD boot not supported" or something like that.
The DVD is bootable, so that is not the problem.

Answer:Satellite P70-B-102 - Bluetooth issue upgrade to Windows 10

This is very strange… i think this must be some kind of Windows bug… i would recommend you to check whether all Windows updates and fixes are installed…

Furthermore the unit is listed as a Win 10 upgrade supported model, therefore Win 10 upgrade should be possible.

The unit is listed here: http://win10upgrade.toshiba.com/swup...spx?region=TEG

The Win 10 driver can be downloaded and updated from this page:

but in case the Windows 10 upgrade using the automatic upgrade procedure would not work, try to upgrade Windows 10 using the media creation tool

Hello, I am new to this forum so please bear with me if I am in error.

I have just bought a Satellite A100-049 and inadvertently pressed the F10 key. The LED below the key illuminated and I discovered to my horror that I could not type certain letters and, worse, I could not turn off F10, whatever that is! I eventually had to restart.

I can see what F1 to F9 do from the drop down list at the top of the screen, but I cannot work out what F10, F11 and F12 do, and am in constant fear of pressing them again! The handbook and Toshiba web site don't seem to offer any help, although it is probably because I don't know where to look.

Can any of you kind experts out there fill me in?

Many thanks,

John

Answer:Function keys issue on a Satellite A100-049

Hi there,

maybe I know how to resolve your problem. Try to press "Fn+F10" (Hold Fn and press F10 at the same time).
Then your keyboard should work properly again.
Maybe you pressed a key combination (e.g. "Fn+F10") and then the alternate keypad on your keyboard was activated.

Please give some feedback if my hint helped you.

I think your notebook has only small stereo speakers and the sound is not the best. I have Satellite S50-B with Harman/kardon speakers and sound is really good.

Hi There,

I have had a Satellite C70D for about 18 months now, but have not used it in the past year as I have been disputing with customer services about the windows licence for the machine as I lost it when I formatted the original hard drive before installing an SSD and they wouldnt send me a copy of it. I have now bitten the bullet and bought a windows 10 licence again. However since building the machine a few days ago, I have been having a couple of issues and as it is now out of warranty, I cannot contact customer support (Who I found unhelpful even when it was in warranty!)

The first issue is when I boot up the machine, occasionally the keyboard will not work, I cannot type the BitLocker pin and I have to remove the battery and press and hold the power button for 10 seconds, this then fixes the issue for a few reboots before it goes again.

The second is that occasionally it will boot up with a red x next to the WiFi symbol, but it detects the WiFi card, usually a reboot fixes this but not always. I have reseated the card and still no avail.

Can anyone shed any light on what may be causing this? The BIOS is up-to-date as are all of the drivers.

I have 2 issues with my new Satellite C70D-B-32U.
When I put it in sleep mode, it does. But after about 5 minutes, it goes automatically to hibernate. This I don't want. And I don't want to disable hibernate, because I do use it when the laptop is not in use for longer periods. The power settings in control panel do not reflect this behaviour. In the settings, I specified that the laptop should never go to hibernate. Hybrid state is disabled.

And secondly, more importantly. Whenever it goes to hibernate, I can only wake it up with the power button. Not with the (internal) keyboard, not with the usb mouse. I would like an option to wake it from hibernate by pressing any key on the keyboard. In bios power on keyboard is set to on. Is there anything else I can change to have this available?
Actually if issue 1 is solved and the laptop stays in sleep mode, this issue is also solved since from sleep I can wake on a mouseclick which is also fine.

All you can find for free are all drivers, tools and utilities. Original recovery image (software package) is not for free and if you need it you must order recovery disc directly by Toshiba.

You can order it on https://backupmedia.toshiba.eu/landing.aspx

By the way: in user’s manuals document is clearly described how you can create recovery installation disc. I’m wondering you didn’t make it in the past.

Answer:Can I replace the HDD in my Satellite C70D-B -00P model with an SSD?

Generally speaking yes, you can do this but problem is that your notebook model doesn't have HDD cover at the bottom side.
To have full access to the HDD the bottom cover must be removed completely but it should be done by authorized service only.

Of course you can try to do it alone but I?m afraid you may lose the warranty.
If possible contact nearest Toshiba service provider in your country, explain the situation and ask for help.

I purchased a Satellite S50-B-15N just a few months ago which came with Windows 8.1 and decided to do the upgrade to Windows 10 about two months ago. Initially the laptop worked fine but over the past few weeks it has been having various issues with the keyboard, trackpad, and function keys.

Keyboard: Sometimes the laptop will boot and the keyboard detects no input whatsoever. A few restarts fixes the problem. If I hold down backspace to delete multiple characters only one character is deleted upon a single click of backspace, I cannot hold it down to quickly delete multiple words.

Trackpad: Similarly to the keyboard sometimes upon boot it just doesn't work. I am forced to use the keyboard to access device manager where I have to roll back the trackpad driver for it to start working again on next reboot.

Function Keys: All top row keys on the laptop (brightness, volume, track selection, etc) do not work at all. I am able to hold down 'FN' and select an F key such as F5, but other keys are completely unresponsive.
I have attempted reading forums for solutions, and I've gone to Toshiba's driver page and installed all the Windows 10 drivers for my laptop, so far nothing has worked. Is there anything I can do to make the laptop work properly with Windows 10?

I switched it on this morning and got the Toshiba Logo - then it went to blank screen and there was a large data entry box asking me for a password. I tried the same one and I get another screen showing a red data entry box saying "VERIFY ERROR!! Please reenter to continue!!

HELP!!

Can anyone help me please. I am operating windows 8.1

Thanks

Hello,

My mousepad doesn' work as it should. I tried to deblock with FN+F5, only F5, FN+F9, ... but nothing helps.
All I can do is move the cursor and use the mousepad when keeping the left mouse button at the same time.
Anyone a solution?

Answer:Satellite C70D - impossible to deblock mousepad

To be honest I’ve never heard about such touchpad behaviour.
Have you tested all touchpad settings?
If there is option to set all of them on default settings please do this and test functionality again.

Anyway, best hardware test is to reinstall operating system and check touchpad functionality with “factory settings”.

The single webcam driver isn?t available because as far as I know the Toshiba Value Added Package already contains the essential driver to get the webcam working.

Hi,

I have a toshiba C70D-B-306 (psclee) laptop and I reinstalled windows 8.1 from a seperate DVD because i exchange the default harddrive for a fast ssd disk.

Everything works but in my device manager I have 2 unknown devices listed (with exclamation mark), as far as I know I downloaded all available drivers from toshiba support website for this laptop and installed them but the 2 unknown devices simply will not disappear.

Can someone tell me which driver I exactly need for these 2 devices?

The 2 devices are:
ACPI\ASD0001\2&DABA3FF&1
and
ACPI\SMB0001\4&FE73487&0

As mentioned, i allready downloaded all drivers for this laptop and installed them, windows is ofcourse up-to-date. Also I let windows search for drivers on the Internet and on the whole drive, but no drivers where found.

Who can give me the golden tip?

Answer:Satellite C70D-B-306 - 2 unknown devices in device list

There is a good method in order to find out what drivers are missing.
First of all you should check the DEV (device) and VEN (vendor) IDs

Here is an short instruction how to find this details:
http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/kb0/HTD0302U00000R01.htm

Knowing the device and vendor ID, it should not be a big deal to get the right drivers.

At the other hand you should install also additional Toshiba software (Toshiba System Driver) released for Win 8.1
Please note also that there are two Win 8.1 driver areas: ?Win 8.1 update? and ?Win 8.1 32bit/64bit? categories
In case you would not find all drivers within the Win 8.1 update check also the Win 8.1 32bit/64bit categories.

Hi all,

excuse the new thread but I haven't found any answers anywhere online, just speculation and it's for different models.

So I have a C70D-B-10U, running windows 7 64bit pro. When I formatted it and updated everything, it just kept crashing when trying to play back videos on Windows Media Player. I cleaned the inside and replaced thermal paste, updated to even newer drivers, and started using VLC as my default media player. It rarely crashed BUT it always does when I try to start playing games (nothing heavy - League of Legends). Laptop seems to be doing well with memory tests, no faults detected.

I've read that this could be caused by:
Faulty GPUFaulty BatteryFaulty PSUBad Capacitors on the MOBO

Has anyone had any similar experience? I've reinstalled Windows and it's the same story. If it's a motherboard issue, I guess it would be better to just get a new one?

Thanks

Answer:Satellite C70D-B-10U no warning crash (power, GPU or capacitors)

Update: I decided to test the RAM and it seems like it can't handle 8GB. Both 4GB sticks work on any slot, but when I have all of it on the machine it crashes. Do you think it is a motherboard issue?

And where I can set that I consume more or less. since it is a separable memory yes.

Hi

Well, I?m wondering why you purchased a unit with an internal (part of CPU) graphic chip if you want use the notebook for gaming?

The notebook supports the AMD Radeon HD 8400 graphics which is part of AMD Quad-Core A6-5200 CPU.
Such GPU is similar to Intel HD GPU which is also part of Intel CPUs.

Such internal graphic cards are not really designed for gaming? of course you would be able to run and to play a game but don?t expect too much?

Answer:ODD on my Satellite C70D-A-11E wont read DVDs anymore

Hi

If optical disc drive is installed properly maybe is reading lens dirty. Try to clean it up.

Other way, if your ODD can read CDs but not DVDs it can also be hardware malfunction. The reading lens cannot be calibrated properly and cannot find the right position to read DVD media.

In such case ODD must be exchanged.

Try to clean lens up and check if the problem persists. If yes contact nearest Toshiba service provider and ask for help.

Hello,

I have buy a Satellite C70D-A-11T and pass it on Windows 7 64 bits Home Premium.
I install all the drivers and I haven't any problems.

When I want to connect it to my TV for first time, I discover there is no sound on the TV.
I try to go on the speaker (near the clock of windows), right click, sound, first tab (I think it is "Playback" in english... I have a french Windows) and my device (TV) doesn't appear.

I come back on Toshiba Support website to download the last driver "HDMI Audio driver" for my laptop, I connect the cable, and it appear in the sound properties. I select it as my default device and the sound come right from my TV.

Great !

But when I restart my laptop (with or without the HDMI cable), the TV disappear from the list in the sound properties, the only one solution to recover the sound is to reinstall the HDMI Audio Driver.
If I start the driver installation with the "advanced" option, I have the list of drivers to install and I see all drivers are already installed, but the HDMI Audio Driver will be upgraded... I install it and it work until the next restart.

Could you explain me why the version of the driver don't stay on the system, and how to make it work without reinstall it everyday ?

Would be grateful for any advice to remove the back panel.

I've removed battery, ~16 screws + 1 tiny screw at the optical drive and whilst it does 'unclick' everywhere else, there seems to be something stopping the panel being removed just above the battery compartment and don't want to force it.

Even our IT guys at work cannot work it out.

PLEASE HELP.....my new laptop is very slow so have purchased RAM but can't access the back.

Answer:Satellite C70D-B-30D: How to access back panel after ~16 screws removed

At first I must say that you should not remove bottom cover alone because it will cancel valid warranty. If there is no RAM cover, RAM should be exchanged or upgraded by authorized personal only.

I know every of us think it is easy to do and want to do this alone.
What I know is follow:
2 screws in the middle are fixing the keyboard. What must be removed are 14 screws and small flat screw at the optical drive. That’s all. There is no other hidden screw.

Of course there are also small plastic holders and bottom cover must be removed very gently.

I've only noticed today that when I turn up my laptop's volume up to about 28 (even with headphones in), there's this high pitch noise that comes from the speakers. And I'm sure it's the speakers and not anything else.
But the sound is sort of that real ear-killing noise so I can't listen to it for long. It even sometimes sounds like thousands of crickets - a complete nightmare

But with my volume at any level below 28 I can listen to whatever through headphones without the sound bothering me.

Does anyone have any ideas for a solution? I do know a thing or two about computers but nothing about anything extremely technical and I'm not sure if I want to take it apart, unless I really have to.

What is original fab?
What have you installed exactly? Have you used the original Toshiba recovery disk?

Well, I think if a single key doesn?t work there is not much what you can do expect exchanging the keyboard because single keys are not replaceable.

What you can try is testing the situation with an external keyboard. Can you use the Windows key properly?
If yes the internal keyboard is malfunctioning and should be replaced from an authorized service provider they can order original Toshiba spare parts.

It?s for Win 8 and NOT for Win 8.1
Therefore some tools and utilities could not work properly.

But listen: If you are using Win 8 (not quite sure about Win 8.1) very important is the installation of Toshiba System Driver.
Such Toshiba System driver can be found on Toshiba driver page too.

I recently bought a Toshiba satellite l50d-c-13g with a stick of crucial RAM, specs are 8GB DDR3 1600 (PC3-12800) CL11 SODIMM 204pin 1.35V. The Crucial website itself recommended this for my device and I did some research and many people have confirmed that it is compatible as a combination for L50 devices much like this one. The installation itself went great, my machine and OS are picking up the total 16GB of RAM. However I'm experiencing an issue where the RAM is being throttled at 665.3 MHz (which I am assuming is 665.3X2) according to CPU-z and Seccy. My GPU is also being throttled as a result of this as it's using the RAM for shared memory and what's stranger still, is that even though my machine and OS is reading 16GBs, dual channel mode is not activated.

Currently my OS is not asking for a reactivation, and there is no option to enable/disable XMP in BIOS. Would a XMP profile have to be provided by the OEM for this machine to accept the new RAM or is this a known issue with some other work around to have it clock at a full 800MHz?

If you have several TeraBytes of data it can take a few hours to index. As well as indexing it may be having to update security permissions for the drives and their folders.

I am from australia and for some dumb reason toshiba hasnt provided windows 8.1 drivers yet, anyways im stuck trying to find one.. i see alot on this site have this trouble when i did a search but i couldnt find one for my specific laptop..

If someone has a link that would be great, as for Toshiba Australia what are you guys waiting for, are you waiting for window 9 before you release updated driver.. come on get your act together pls.. I dont think anyone is still on the buggy windows 8..

please release updates for windows 8.1, if toshiba service station can get them well i assume you have them s post them on the website please....

thanks
s4m :)

Answer:Satellite L50-A00V - Need Toshiba hotkey function for Windows 8.1

I?m from Europe and I?ve successfully updated my machine to Win8.1. on European download page all Win8.1 drivers, tools and utilities are available.
I?m really wondering that Australian support page doesn't offer such update.

Until you wait for updates try to visit European download page on http://www.toshiba.eu/innovation/download_drivers_bios.jsp and check updates for L50-A.
I think it must be all the same thing.

I have Satellite A100-011 (PSAARE) and i have just upgraded memory RAM to 4 GB with 2x2GB Kingston (KTT533D2/2G).
BIOS can see all my 4GB installed,so my Windows (x64) but my Task Manager shows me 3069 MB!!!
How is this possible?Is there any way to fix that?My BIOS version is 6.00.

Thank you!

Answer:Satellite A100-011 (PSAARE) RAM upgrade issue

Hi!

Are you sure that you have a 64bit version from Windows XP?
I ask this because the Toshiba website does not offer drivers for XP 64bit.

If you have really a 64bit OS make sure that you have installed all Service Packs and Hotfixes from Microsoft.

And install a program like Everest and look how much RAM this program shows.

Hi,

I know that the issue has been already discussed several times, however it seems none of the solutions or suggestions posted earlier applies to my situation.
I have recently bought an old Toshiba Sat Pro 4300. The notebook had one memory slot filled with 64MB module so total memory in the system was 128 MB.
Since in my opinion the system worked to slow i have decided to buy an additional memory module. I have bought 128 MB - TOSHIBA PA3005U -K module and placed it in the slot B

I was quite suprised when I have found that after the upgrade, Windows showed that the total memory is 192 MB.
When I put the 128 MB module in slot A and the old 64MB module in slot B - the suprise was even greater, since the Windows showed only 128 MB.

First I thought that the slot B is faulty, but in such case it would be impossible to get 192 MB in the first place. Then I thought that the new memory module was either faulty or it was 64MB instead of 128MB, but this option is also unlikely, based on my observations. Furthermore, I checked the system with the EVEREST software and it recognizes the new module as 128 MB module, but does not see the old 64MB module.

The situation is quite strange. Does anybody has any idea whay is going on?


Regards,

Sebastian

Answer:Satellite Pro 4300 - memory upgrade issue

From my knowledge the Satellite Pro 4300 can be upgraded to max 320MB.
http://www.orcalogic.co.uk/asp/prodtype.asp?prodtype=5769&ft=m&st=3

The 64MB module which was equipped with your notebook should be ?not removable?.
So in this slot ONLY this 64MB module could works correctly.

I know this is strange but computer world is sometimes strange ;) you know :D

Greetings

Good day, fellow Toshiba notebook owners.

I have a little trouble upgrading my BIOS to a "newer" (according to Tempro) version.
I just installed the Tempro application, and it detected that my BIOS needs an upgrade, so I naturally downloaded the "new" BIOS. Everything went fine, but when I tried to install it, a message popped up in the install window:

"*The program will be closed!* There is an error occurred, please check below items. Bios version above 190. Battery capacity more than 10%. AC is attached."

No matter what I do, I get the same error, over and over again. I looked the problem up before I posted this thread, and other people encountered it, but, unlike my case, advices like "Close all background applications", "Charge your battery", or "Make sure the AC is attached" really helped them.

I tried closing everything, my battery is always fully charged, as I rarely disconnect the AC adapter, and, of course, the AC connection issue is not the cause, since it is almost always plugged in.

I checked my BIOS version in +msinfo32.exe+ and it is 1.90 already, but I remember upgrading it months ago (sooner than the release date of this last version), and if, hypothetically, I have the last version already installed, why doesn't Tempro acknowledge it and keeps alerting me over a non-existent issue?

Maybe there is something wrong with Tempro, but I just need to be sure before... Read more

Answer:Satellite C660 - 1C7: BIOS upgrade issue

Hi

Tempro notify you about new uploaded drivers or BIOS?
The Toshiba European driver page provides all the drivers and BIOS files and the latest BIOS version 1.90-win has been uploaded at 04.06.2012 and therefore you received this notification by Tempro software.

Who knows why they uploaded this file once again.. but fact is that your BIOS is up to date and therefore you cannot update the BIOS once again using the one and the same version.

ok atm i have 512mb in my netbook and i want upgrade to 1gb
now i already have 512mb in teh nebook and i got another
but when i insert the other 512mb
the only thing i get is a black screen

Answer:Re: Satellite Pro 2100: RAM upgrade issue from 512mb to 1GB

Hi

The notebook supports max 1GB RAM.
This means you can use max 2 x 512MB modules; 512MB module in each slot.

I assume 1GB RAM is not supported and therefore you cannot boot up the unit properly!

Go back to 2 x 512MB

Hi,
I had tried to replace the old DVD/CDRW with the above UJ-830B ( FW: 1.50, HW: 1.00) but the result was IDE error. It is not recognize it in Windows at all.
I have tried to solder the contact 48 and 49 but result is the same.

How can I make to work this UJ-830B ( FW: 1.50, HW: 1.00) on Toshiba Pro M10?

Is any one have any solution like firmware upgrade or some hardware soldering/desoldering?

Thanks.

Regards

Answer:Satellite Pro M10: firmware upgrade issue DVD UJ-830B FW:1.50, HW:1.00

This is not possible because such software is not placed or released on any of Toshiba webpage.

Fact is that not all CD/DVD drives are compatible with all notebooks due to different master/slave/c-sel settings.
Therefore it?s always advisable to contact the ASP in your country or to check the user manual to get the details about combatable drives.

I can recommend only buying an compatible and supported ODD.

I purchased a Satellite A500 laptop containing Vista 32 bit Home Premium.
It came with a upgrade to Windows 7 for which I completed the install/uninstall process for upgrading from Vista Home Premium 32 bit to Windows 7 32 bit from the Toshiba site before the start of the DVD windows 7 install process.

After the re-start of my computer at step 6, I have a message 'new hardware found - base system device' I have tried searching c: and I have tried searching the Windows 7 DVD for the specific file and am unable to locate it.

The install/uninstall removed the drivers to connect to the internet.

Can't seem to start the install of Windows 7 from the DVD.

Please help.

Answer:Issue with Windows7 upgrade - Satellite A500

Hi

The Win 7 asks for the driver!
It?s not placed on the C or on the Win 7 DVD.

I assume you have upgraded the Vista to Win 7 and did not the clean install?.
I recommend a clean install because Win 7 would install everything again and will not use the applications which were preinstalled on Vista.
In many cases such apps are not fully compatible with Win 7.

After the clean Win 7 installation, you could install the Win 7 drivers which you will find on the Toshiba pages.

But Win 7 drivers are not published on Toshiba European page at this time?
So you could use a Toshiba US page to get the drivers or should check the European page later?

I have P750 Satelitte and I have upgraded OS to Windows 10. Unfortunatelly P750 isnt at supoorted Windows 10 upgrade list.

After upgrade it seems that almost everything works, but I have problem with two things:
1. bluetooth - there is a problem with driver (shown yellow exlamation)
2. toshiba specific function keys doesnt work

Maybe someone have solved this problem, expecially with bluetooth driver. At toshiba page there ara of cource no drivers for Windows 10.
I can of course connect external bluetooth dongle, but it would be best to use internal one. Bluetooth and Windows 10 is important for me, because I want to use XBOX One S pad for gaming for my children, and this controller can work via bluetooth only in Windows 10 aniversary version.

anyone can help ? maybe drivers from other laptops could work ??

with best regards !

Hello,

The C40 C10Q is already a tight squeeze with only a 32GB eMMC drive. I therefore did a clean install of W10 and everything is great, with plenty of space to spare now - EXCEPT - some of the function keys don't work such as the blank screen, while outside Windows, using a boot CD, none of them work. Do I need to download a Toshiba Utilities driver? Can't find them anywhere!

Answer:Satellite C40 function keys don't work outside Windows after W10 clean install

Win10 drivers can be found here http://www.toshiba.eu/innovation/dow...jsp?service=EU

Install the Toshiba System Driver, and Toshiba system Settings.

Hi,
I have upgraded my new laptop from Vista to Win7 64 bit, however the function keys do not work and the function keys that display at the top when you press FN does not show anymore. I have installed Utilities and Value Added Package but no success. Any help is apperciated.

Note To Toshiba Team:
Why don't you package all necessary drivers and software in one package after testing them, based on computer model for example in my case Satellite A350-13A, you could make one package for Win7x64 another for Win7x32, etc, instead of leaving us spending days to figure out what to install and where to find it and if it will work or not. Awaiting your feedback.

Answer:Satellite A350-13A Windows 7 64bit Function Keys not working

Hi

You need to install the Flash Card support utility additionally to the VAP!!!
The Flash Card support Utility can be found in Satellite L500 driver area for example.
After installation if Flash Card support Utility reboot the unit once again and then check the functionality.

Hello everybody,

I just did an upgrade for my Satellite A300 to Windows 7 32. I started my laptop and everything was fine but after I write my username and password and log on my display goes black.
I can hear that it is working but I can?t see anything.

When I used the safe mode it worked fine. I checked the display info and it said unknown
I downloaded the latest drivers for ATI card from the Toshiba site but when I installed it, it said driver not detected because I think I am in safe mode and it is not connected and I can't install it in normal mode because I can't see anything

What should I do?

Please help
