Portege Z20t - Win10 graphic card driver version

Question: Portege Z20t - Win10 graphic card driver version

The current driver in my computer is:-
Device Manager>Display Adapters>Intel(R) HD Graphics 5300>Driver>
Version= 18-11-2015 Intel Corporation.

On the Toshiba web site,
Intel Display Driver Driver Windows 10 64-bit 179.7 MB

And on the Intel Web site, Driver is 28-JAN-2016

Now how is the Intel driver at 28-JAN-2016 version 15 and the one in the computer at version 20 but dated NOV-2015 and the toshiba web site says version 10 and says that is still current?

And all of this is because Firefox does not restore properly and also the computer does not wake up when I open the lid.

I have a Z20t-C-15M. SN 5H071828H. Online specs says there's a battery inside the docking keyboard and a battery inside the tablet.
Battery indicators is saying Battery # 1 is not present whereas battery led indicator in the keyboard dock displays no light (nor white nor orange).
Battery indicators is saying battery # 2 present and led indicator is white on the tablet.
Is this a normal behavior or an issue ? Why can'I get the secondary battery ?
From the specs :
Battery Life up to 9h30min tablet only (Mobile Mark? 2014 running Win10)
up to 19h tablet & keyboard (Mobile Mark? 2014 running Win10)

I'm having a few issues with my Portege 4000 at the moment. I installed XP on one disk, but will need more RAM as I only have 256MB...

- Have tried 2 manufacturers but the PC133 512 isn't compatible. However my system has an IBM chip of PC100 256 in it, which was bought at an earlier stage last year, after much trial and error, and I'm now wondering whether the motherboard will be more suited to PC100 rather than PC133?

- Am considering alternative options to XP, namely 98SE or 2000 as these are lighter operating systems. I can put this on an alternative (test) disk. Is it possible to set up a partition for the Recovery CD Rom (which has 98SE) on it and have some space left over for installing another Linux o/s or does its partition manager overwrite everything?

- I have put another post for .exe drivers relating to the display/vga for 98SE and 2000.

- Just fyi, not all Linux distros seem to pick up on the monitor size, so this takes some work...

Many Thanks for any help.

The Protege 4000 is compatible with PC133 modules! As far as I know you can upgrade this notebook's RAM to 1GB (1024MB) and you could use these modules;
PC133 512MB (PA3108U-1M51)
PC133 256MB (PA3086U-1M25)
PC133 128MB (PA3085U-1M12)

You could create some partitions on the HDD using an 3rd party tool like Partitions Magic 8. I use this tool and it's really nice.
After you have created 2 or three partitions on the HDD, you could install different OS (operating systems.)

I own a Portege A100 and I need to update the graphics controller in order to play some games.

My problem is i went to the download centre and the latest driver is currently installed in my notebook.
I have had this game running before but had my notebook reprogrammed and can't recall how to make it work.

Please help!

Answer:Portege A100 - Need new graphic card driver in order to play games be honest Portege is not notebook for gaming. Maybe for playing chess but for some graphic intensive games is definitely wrong notebook.

Anyway, the question is what you want to do.
Do you want to play some games or just to get old (already working) game to run again? Or maybe both options?

Answer:Portege Z20t-b GPS no working

In the description of Portege Z20t-b-xxx the “Assisted GPS” is mentioned.

The assisted GPS is part of the 3G module… so it should work using the 3G connection too.

I am interested to see if anyone else is experiencing this issue. Since upgrading Windows 10 to the latest Version 1511, Build 10586 released in November by Microsoft i am having strange issues with the Conexant HD Audio device.

The issue being when i am playing stereo music and i encounter a lower volume section of the music (i.e - strings etc) the sound switches from Stereo to Mono and when the volume of the track increases it again reverts to stereo. Sometimes it switched back and forth regularly which is irritating.

I have the latest DTS Studio Sound (1.2.41) for Windows 10 and the correct Conexant HD Audio driver from Toshiba ( and this is the exact same driver/software version i had prior to updating Windows 10 to the latest version so the issue has definately been caused by the update.

To get around the issue i have installed the generic High Defination Audio Device drivers from Microsoft and the issue no longer occurs but i obvisuly can no longer use DTS Studio Sound with these drivers.

I am hoping Toshiba will be releasing a new DTS Studio Sound and/or driver to correct this issue.

Thanks in advance

I undocked the screen from the keyboard without issue (using the "eject hardware safely" icon), but when reattaching the screen, it does not recognize the keyboard. Physical connection is 100%, but no communication at all. Usually it dings and switches from tablet mode to PC mode. Not this time. Interestingly, it DOES know that the keyboard is being charged, but only "Battery 2" is present.

Any ideas before sending it to the dreaded "Depot"?

Good morning, after using the Lenovo x61t for over 7 jears it is time to find a new one.

The z20t seems to be the only one which fits my needs:
* convertible
* track stick
* at least full HD display (and not a mirror one!)
* native(!) Ethernet

The only drawback is the little ssd (max. 256) and that is only HDMI 1,4, no 2.0 (CPU limitation) or Display Port to get [email protected]

Then I stumbled over a Z20t-B-10C-SE with a 500 GB SSD ! Is this real or a fake? It was listed yesterday with 16 GB RAM, today with only 8 GB RAM.

If I'm allowed to dream, I would add these ones to the z20T:
* the third mouse button to the trackstick for scrolling (this is something I use almost everytime))
* Perhaps putting 16 GB RAM to the notebook
* HDMI 2.0 or Displayport - this problem is solved itself via an upgrade to Skylake which provides HDMI 2.0
* Having PCe-Lanes (one would be enough) in the dock connector
The last one enables to have more keyboard variants:
* the one which is offered today
* one with a ExpressCard slot (additional card reader, more USB ports, TV cards, special internet connection cards, interface cards for data aquisition etc.)
* one with a ExpressCard slot & second SSD/HDD bay (e.g. for a "cheap & really big HDD")

Additional, a "small & tiny" one for people for which every gramm is important could be nice (no, I prefer the "standard" one which comes with the z20t a lot over the tiny ones which comes with many other tables)... Read more

Answer:Portege Z20t-B-10C-SE - hardware specification question

Your “dreams” sounds good

- The additional 3rd mouse button… well I never required such button on my touchpad… so for me such button would be useless…

- 16GB RAM… definitely big YES… but unfortunately this Portege Z20t-B-10C supports max 8GB RAM… this limitation appears due to the chipset/CPU

- Espress Card slot is could be a nice-to-have feature but I think this kind of interface is already more or less in decline…

I've got a z20t-B-107. Lovely machine, upgraded to win 10, all working fine - I had to download a new Wacom driver to get the 'left-click' to work with the pen.

I'm using it in tablet mode to digitise some data points on a map, and to sketch with the pen. However, when I rest my hand on the screen it 'activates' the touch screen and makes things go crazy. I really need to be able to temporarily switch off the touch digitiser and have only the Wacom digitiser running, and if I can toggle it on/off somehow that would be useful. Otherwise i need to use the pen in a very unnatural position to avoid touching the screen with my hand.

I have a Samsung Galaxy Note which uses the Wacom type digitiser - it doesn't seem to suffer from this, as soon as it detects the pen near the screen it appear to switch off the touch part.

I would be grateful for any help - I've tried search engines but they only seem to give results about touch pads, and that's completely different...

Many thanks in advance

Answer:Portege Z20t - can I turn touch screen OFF?


I use a Z20t too (but with Win8.1) and have the same problem. I have decided to switch off the touch complete. It is not a good solution, but a good working with OneNote is only with switching off the touch functionality possible.
Maybe this is a possible solution for you.
In Win8.1 I switched off the driver in the device manager.

I found the following steps here:

1. Right-click and select "All Apps" at the lower right corner, then select Control Panel
2. Select Hardware and Sound
3. Select Device Manager
4. Select Human Interface Devices
5. From the list, look for the driver for the touch screen. This can be tricky since on my tablet they are all listed as "USB Input Device" and there are 3 of them. I found it by disabling and re-enabling one at a time until the touch screen stopped responding. You can also identify the touch screen by checking the Properties | Details and get the "Hardware Ids" then do a search online to see what the device is. In my case, the touch screen has the ID USB/VID_0EEF&PID_7302.
6. Once you know which is the touch screen, disable the driver and the touch screen should no longer work
Enable this device to make the touch screen work again.

Last April I bought a Port?g? Z20T-C 13Q (PT16AE-02J03LCE) and a Stylus Pen (PA5133U-1EUC), with the intention of starting to use this device (as in the advertising itself of the product is announced) Other uses, take notes and draw schemes.

Unfortunately, I saw from the beginning that the Stylus Pen did not work. I thought the reason was that neither the Wacom drivers nor the TruNote program were installed. There was no major problem, because I downloaded those files from the support page for my Port?g?. After installing them, my computer still does not recognize the pressure of my fingers, let alone the presence of the Stylus (maybe because I have chosen the wrong stylus).

Please: What should I do? How do I get to use my computer as it is initially advertised on the website? What Stylus do I need?

Curiously, on an Amazon website we recommend this Stylus Pen as Toshiba Portege Z20T Stylus Pen, and for that reason I bought it from the Toshiba dealer along with the computer.

Thank you for answering my questions.

I own a Portege Z20T B-10C which is a rather nice machine, but has one annoying flaw: The screen gets scratched by virtually any contact. For example, I can't use the "emergency pen" for touch input or to write on the screen as it causes scratches. Also, the screen has already collected a series of scratches shaping the outline of the touchpad, i.e. supposedly produced when closing the laptop. Hence, you can't really use the laptop the way it should be used and I fear that a few months from now the screen will be filled with scratches.

While I'm waiting for my notebook shop to decide whether this is a warranty case or not, I wonder if anyone of you owns this model and has come across the same problem?


Answer:Portege Z20T: Screen becomes scratched by virtually anything

I have exactly the same problem. I've only been using the machine since July and already it's quite damages. Basically the screen rubs against the dock and I have the imprint in the outline of the touchpad. I'm concerned that they will soon damaging the images captured by the camera since the outline of the touch pad is right over the lens.

Toshiba is so far unwilling to repair this and I've included the response from my account rep below. Frankly, I was shocked since this is such an expensive computer and the cause of the problem seems so obvious. I was also disappointed that they didn't consider this thread when evaluating my case since it is the first result when one Googles 'portege scratched screen'.
Hello Eric,

I sent your email with the pictures of your laptop screen scratches. They replied back saying that the scratches are not due to a manufacture defect and there have not been another reports of other Z20t touchscreens getting scratches like this on the screen, so there is nothing they can do to replace it. Our Customer Service Manager will usually just make the call to replace it, if the laptop is with the first 90 days, which is 2 ? months past the normal return policy. He was not able to get the approval to replace it.

I am glad that you were able to get this laptop back up and running. Please keep that Business Technical Support number handy for any future needs, which I hope that you do not ever have to use it in the future. Please give me ... Read more

ThinkPad Super Low Profile TrackPoint Cap Set, Part number:4XH0L55146. this is the cap fits to thinpad x1 yoga.

since having z20t for the last year and half. I still can not find any other 2-in-1 to be better. this comes from someone who had previously only used the most expensive thinkpad models and updating every 1-2 years.

however, the trackpoint cap drives me a bit crazy as I rely on it most time as a 10+ year thinkpad user. it is tiny, needs a lot of force to move, and after a while, the surface becomes smooth and easy to slip.

I did tons of search and bought quite a few replacement caps to try, none worked. and it bugs me that toshiba does not sell a replacement either. so one day when the cap wears out or damaged, I would need to buy a new keyboard dock at least.

finally I found one that works perfectly, from no other than thinkpad itself.

I have a Toshiba Portege Z20T-C. I purchased it 6 months ago. After 3 months it developed a white ghost spot on the screen (approx 1cm across) which I now understand to be a pressure mark.

I don't actually use the touch screen of the laptop so I was surprised about this.

I wondered if any other Z20T owners have had this problem. Since I don't use the touch screen I wondered if it was a common fault with this model.

I did send the laptop back to be looked at under Toshiba's repair and warranty, but was told it wasn't covered and it'd cost me ?528 to repair.

I paid this. It took 3 months to get the machine back and the new screen has a similar pressure mark, just on a different part of the screen. Plus I have a lot of nice scratches all over my (was as new) laptop.
I suspect the pressure mark was caused by the engineer whilst reassembling the machine and pressing on the screen.

The Toshiba repair company say I can send it back to be re-assessed. They won't guarantee to fix it under their 90 day warranty - only to assess it.

I certainly won't spend another ?528 and wait another 3 months.
So, I've had a very expensive laptop for 3 months that's now pretty useless.
I can't say I'm having the best experience as a Toshiba customer.

Does anyone have any advice?

We have bought a Portege Z20t-C-121 to test it as a replacement for some of our senior management. I re-built it with Windows 10 Enterprise and installed all the latest Drivers from the Toshiba Website.

The only thing I can't get to function seems to be the auto screen rotation; when I un-dock the screen to use it as a tablet Windows detects this and switches to tablet mode but, however I turn the screen it remains in the same landscape orientation that it was in when it was docked.

thats why i wanted to update my bios but it says it is not working on my computer... well thats frustrating...
why offer the bios update when it does not work at all... or is it some sort of windows 7 only? cant imagine that tbh.

Please excuse my bad english,

I just bought the Z10t A 13V PT 141, with W8.1. This computer works very well on W8 but I want to install W10. I've ever tried 3 times but each time, the cursor (with the touchpad or a mouse) is lagging, each movement is jerky and don't works very well. I tried to see if it was a driver problem, and downloaded all the new Toshiba drivers for W10.

I've made the same with Intel drivers, but for the graphics drivers there is an error message : "a customized computer manufacturer driver is installed on your computer. The Intel driver update utiliy is not able to update the driver. Installing a generic Intel driver instead of the customized computer manufacturer driver may cause technical issues. Contact your computer manufacturer for the latest driver for your computer."

When I'm with W8, drivers are correctly updated..

So I think the cursor problem is due to this driver problem (I hope but I'm not sure). What's the solution ? AM I alone with this problem ?

on a Z20t-B-10C with one minor modification (upgraded to a 500GB Samsung SSD, dropped recovery partition, but not the EFI partition), I have the following issue:
When the BestCrpyt Pre-boot screen shows up, I cannot directly enter the passphrase, but have to 1) hit at least one key 2) wait for approx. 10 sec. 3) delete the entered key(s) and then 4) enter the passphrase.
Thought it may have to do with a delayed interaction between tablet and keyboard dock, but a USB keyboard directly connected to the tablet, not the dock, shows the same behaviour. Trying different things in the Bios (switching to UEFI legacy, etc.), with no effect. This phenomenon is, according to their support, not known to the BestCrypt people. Operation system is Windows 10 64bit, all drivers and bios are recent.
Has anybody else observed this behaviour? Or experience with other full disk encryption which are compatible with a UEFI bios?
Thank you in advance,

i would like to ask you for help. I have got my notebook PORTEGE Z30-A-181 PT243E-08305SCZ from last November. I upgrade my OS to W10 64bit and getting trouble with DISPLAY DRIVER. There is not officical display driver for this PC
even it is a high qualitity notebook. I am using W8/W7 64 bit drivers.
Most of my screens are not sharp and smooth.
Could you let me know, what to do?
I was told the notebook is not on list of supported laptops.
It was a 900pounds laptop, so hope, it is only misunderstanding.

Hi everyone.

I have tried putting Vista on my R100 and suprisingly it all runs well. However, the only thing that doesn't the graphics driver. It installs fine and shows up as signed but the machine crashes all the time when using the driver.

When using the windows standard vga driver everything is fine but obviously you can't watch films or anything coz of the rubbish driver.

any ideas people ?



Answer:Portege R100 crashes after installation of the Vista graphic driver


I don?t know where you have found the Vista driver for Port?g? M100 because I just checked the Toshiba Vista driver page and did not find any Vista graphic drivers!

As far as I know the R100 uses a Trident XP4m32 graphic card with 32MB video memory.
Either you will search for the vista driver for this graphic card or you will use the standard graphic driver.
In my opinion you should be a lucky man because you were able to install Vista on your notebook and it runs with standard graphic driver.
As far as I know this notebook is not vista capable and I don?t think that you will be able to use it with full performance.

I recently bught a use M200. I installed Windows 7 on it. It runs really nice.
I use it with "Toshiba Portege M200 Tecra M4 Multi Dock 2 PA3315E-3PRP" and a second screen with 1680x1050 resolution.
Now im looking for a recent driver witch has the following features:

Working screens, hibernate/sleep, rotation.

*Problems with 97.52:*
The drivers from toshiba makeing trouble with the screens, if the external is connected the internal stops working, is not recognized anymore in windows and you cant get it back to work.... (the nvidia panel sees it but you cant enable it)

In the same moment the internal screen stops working, the external screen rotates.
So i have not one working screen at this time.
The same problem i have with all drivers from version 97.29 and up.
With driver version 101.70 there are additional graphic glitches one the rotatet second screen.

With the driver version 156.55 both screens are gray after driver installation....

The previus driver to version from version 97.19 to 96.33 working without hibernate/sleep (the smaller problem)

The driver 95.62 works with hibernate but external resolution ist only 1600x1024(can be modded) but if you rotate to another landscape everything stays black until you rotate back to normal landscape...

The driver 88.61 has no hibernate/sleep (grayed out)

So has anyone a hint for me what can i do to get hib... Read more

Answer:Portege M200: Win 7 need graphic driver for hibernate/sleep, rotation

The problem with Beta/RC builds is that there is basically no "official" driver support and the OS has not been finalized, so you'll either need to wait until nVidia release new Win7 drivers, or wait until Win7 has been released officially (July hopefully).

I have toshiba Portege R700 with 64 bit win 7 installed.
I need the computer for use with autocad 2011.

For some reason auocad does not recognize the graphics card installed in the computer.
I suspect it because very little memory is allocated for the graphics card.

How can i change with memory allocated for the graphic card, or maybe, some one can show me where can i find a driver which autocad supports.

thank you very much!

Answer:Portege R700 - Autocad 2011 does not recognize graphic card


What Portege R700-xxx do you have exactly?
As far as I know the graphic memory cannot be assigned manually.
Everything is controlled by graphic card driver and you have no influence on this?

You can try to update the graphic card driver? maybe this would help.
The newest driver can be found on the Toshiba European driver page?
Otherwise you should check the driver from graphic chip manufacturer

Good luck

The issue came from this post:

I updated my AMD HD 7570 card using the auto detect utility provided by AMD. But when it is finished, my graphic driver is now changed to HD 7600. I suppose it is not compatible with the actual graphic card, as I can see the yellow warning on my device manager.

I have tried to look up the 7570 driver on the internet, but every time I install it, it keeps giving me the 7600 series. Please maybe someone from hardware division can help to resolve this issue. Thanks.

Answer:Satellite P100-221: Question about the graphic driver version


The Satellite P100 is a very new notebook at this time and the drivers should be all up to date. In this case I think that the drivers on the Toshiba page are the same like on your notebook. The date says only the release on the page.

Anyway, you should always check the versions numbers of the drivers and compare it before you will install it on the unit.
Maybe the drivers are preinstalled and you don't need to install the same version again.

Probably I'm not the first and last one who will ask: is there going to be any actualization for the display drivers, because the one that are on the driver-homepage of Toshiba are v8.4.0.0 form 2006 :( For example: Far Cry (1 not 2).

Nearly 2/3 of the landscape is black (when I say black, a mean BLACK). And that's not all. Timeshift wouldn't start at all (yes, I know the card will not support full graphics, but I've played games with much better graphic on my PC at home (with GeForce 5200 128MB).

Good think it was just a demo.
Can't imagine what "nice" surprise it would be if someone gives a 40-50$ for a game and finds out he can't play it because of the drivers.

Had just tried trails of some programs for 3D animation...Well, only problems :-/
Another program told me in a straight line - drivers not up do date.
Updating drivers will fix most graphical issues etc....

Answer:Question about newer graphic driver version for Satellite A series

Have you performed a clean install of the Windows 7 or you upgraded from XP?

Answer:NVIDIA Graphic Card Driver

You're very welcome. I don't know the specs on the cards other than I know they work on W7, because I installed two of each in 4 d530's and they ran W7 just fine for years. I did not upgrade the power supplies, and never had a problem.  I don't believe you can upgrade the P/S on any of those PC's. I got the cheapest ones I could find at the time, which is why I didn't go with all of one brand or the other. I think the 9600's are more available and cheaper nowadays.  They should have 128 MB of onboard memory. Here's a 9600 for $13 bucks. This will only work on the CMT. If you have the SFF you will need to find a low profile model with low profile mounting brackets.

(make and model of graphics card, processor, memory, etc) We can then get a better idea of what your problem is!!

Hope that gets you started

My friend has a old laptop which now runs very well except for one thing. The graphics card driver needs upgrading as it only has 16 colours. Unfortunately the Laptop has no make and is generic.The only thing it has is a code FT6720. The card comes up with the description,"Standard PCI Graphics Adaptor (VGA)". Any help appreciated.

Answer:laptop graphic card Driver

FT6720 relates to the battery, so its not that, the make and model of the lappy will be on it somewhere if you could post that might give us a place to start looking..

Can someone help me install a new Nvidia driver?

My current driver is Nvidia Quadro NVS 135M and i would like to change it to Geforce 6600 or something higher. But i would go with 6600. So if someone could provide me a step-by-step process on how to install these would be highly appreciated. Thanks

Answer:How do i install a new Graphic card driver

What you're asking is to change hardware, not software... which isn't exactly updating. You would have to buy the specific graphics card to do that.

If you want to update your graphics card:
Start -> Search "Device Manager" -> Click Device Manager -> Click arrow next to "Display Adapters" -> Right Click your graphics card -> Select "Update Driver Software..."

Answer:Need graphic card driver for Tecra A8


You can find all drivers on the Toshiba driver page!!
But what?s wrong with your display resolution???

It seems the Tecra A8 uses a 15.4" 1280x800 wide view TFT display.
Did you set a lower resolution as 1280x800???

If you use for example the 1024x768 screen resolution the fonts and little icons could appear blurry.
But this is nothing unusual

I bought SB 8/256 GTX950M and have used windows update. Everything's installed but my graphic card seems not working. I can see 2 drivers on device manager, hd graphic 520 and nvidia geforce gpu.
A simple game like Hearthstone lags like 15-20 fps. My crappy pc runs smoothly.
Thanks in advance.

Answer:Is the graphic card driver installed?

First and foremost, welcome to Windows Central!
First, I would need you to go to the Windows Search bar and search for "System Information" then click "Display" under the "Components" section.
From here it should show that your SB can actually see the 950M on the right side near the top. It should say something like "NVIDIA GEFORCE GTX 950M"
If it sees the GPU just fine then go to Nvidia's website and download the correct drivers that match your GPU
Edited: I'm not sure why the drivers weren't installed in the first place, that's a bit odd if you ask me...

Windows 10 can't detect my graphic card, and the only details I remember about it is that it's a NVIDIA GeForce card between the years 2005-2007.
I already tried NVIDIA Auto-detection tool (GeForce Experience) and it couldn't detect it, tried 'dxdiag', and Display Adapters under Device Manager, couldn't detect it too.
Help will be greatly appreciated


Answer:Can't detect the right driver for my graphic card

There is a small program called Speccy which gives you system information, and should tell you what Graphics card you are using:
Speccy - System Information - Free Download
or if you right click on the start menu and pick device manager, then click on display adapter, it might tell you there.

I have just reinstalled Windows 7 x64 which is OK then install Asrock H55 mobo drivers which is OK but when I install Nvidia gts450 drivers and reboot I end up with a black screen or just a screen with no taskbar or shortcuts, any advice please to get it working.
I have also done a Paragon image from a couple of months ago with the same problem that just shows an empty desktop.

Answer:Graphic Card Driver Problem

There could be a problem with the driver you are installing - or your video card just doesn't like it. You can try installing a previous version (older version) driver to test.

Or your video card may have gone south (died - the slow death). If it works when using the generic drivers that load from Windows but then fails when you load the nVidia drivers it means that the advanced features of the card - like 3d graphics - are failing or have failed.

You can play with the settings for the card in the nVidia Control panel to see if you can get it to work with the driver, or at the very least isolate wherein the problem lies. If you have played with these settings in the past you should try resetting the factory defaults.

Also try re-seating the card, and check that all the contacts are clean and there is no dust in the slot. Re-check the power cord(s) to the card too.
