Satellite C660 PSC0LE - Win7 64bit clean installation - update issue

Question: Satellite C660 PSC0LE - Win7 64bit clean installation - update issue

Don't know if anyone can help me but I'm losing the will to live.

I've got this laptop, the OS corrupted and basically failed due to a malware infection. I never had the recovery disks so I've clean installed Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit twice in the space of 3 days because each time, Windows Update will not work. It simply sits on checking for updates and never finishes. I've tried EVERY solution going - ive reset windows update, done all the fix it programs supplied by microsoft to no avail.

As I said, this is a totally clean install, no anti virus, no 3rd party firewall, updates attempted via both ethernet and wifi. Am I missing a driver of some sort? There are no exclamation marks or warnings in device manager?!

It's doing my head in. What am i doing wrong?!

One observation, both installs have required me to activate via phone, it wouldn't work via the internet?! Is this related in any way?
Drivers installed:

I got them off this page:

Is there any that I'm missing that are important?

Thanks in advance!

Preferred Solution: Satellite C660 PSC0LE - Win7 64bit clean installation - update issue

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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Satellite C660 PSC0LE - Win7 64bit clean installation - update issue

Is SP1 already installed on your Windows 7 system?
If not, you could download this from here:

Otherwise I recommend you to check the MS knowledge base regarding the Windows 7 update issues.

You don’t’ use the Toshiba image and therefore this isn’t Toshiba notebook problem but system issue.

I bought Satellite c660-13r 11.05.2011

After Install, and setup Internet conection, ther was message on Bulletin Board, NEW BIOS so I update the laptop bios with TOSHIBA BULLETIN BOARD. I updated the bios to 1.30 with no problems,

1. POST takes 30sec,
2. booting windows is slow
3. notebook is so slow i can cry!
4. when i open new window or just klick to open new link, everything stay for 3-4sec

and i must ask you, how is this posibile, when i open HWSetup, in start menu ->toshiba->utilytis
I can see BIOS.Version 1.40 04/08/2011 i can send you screenshots

How can i flasch BIOS with other versions,
Its big problem to work

Thank you and i hope you can help me..

Answer:Satellite C660-13r PSC0LE - BIOS update problem


The BIOS version should be mentioned in the BIOS settings.
Power up the unit, press F2 and check the version there.

Furthermore I recommend settings the BIOS back to default settings.
In BIOS settings you will need to press F9 to get default. Then save the changes and exit BIOS.
Reboot the unit and check how many processes are running in the OS background.

I recommend disabling some not essential processes in msconfig.
There you can go to StartUp tab and could uncheck not needed processes.

Iv been given a toshiba satellite c660-1j6.
The problem is the hard drive has been wiped (including the back up). I have none of the Toshiba back up disks , but i have new copies of win 7 home prem and xp pro. However when i try to install win7 i get as far as selecting the drive to install it and i click on the drive and i get the message about how windows cant be installed on this drive please check the drive controller is enabled.

Iv check the BIOS more then a few times and i cant find anything to do with it apart from the SATA Controller Mode and that dose nothing.
Toshiba Tech Support where no help at all. so is the HD locked or the BIOS and is there any way of unlocking them so i can install the O/s?

Iv tested the drive by hooking it up to a desk top PC and installing windows that way but as soon as i put the drive back in the laptop it comes up with no O/S installed again

Can someone give any help....or clues even , iv been at this for a week now and im going insane.

Answer:Satellite C660-1J6 Win7 clean installation failed - HDD controller disabled


HDD is not locked. You can install any OS on the HDD.
Usually the Win 7 operating system already contains the SATA drivers which are needed in order to see the HDD. So it?s not necessary to include SATA drivers while Win 7 installation. You said you?ve got a Win 7 copy disk. Is this a original Microsoft disk with full functional Win 7?
I?ve installed many times Win 7 on my Toshiba notebooks and didn?t need to use SATA drivers?

In BIOS you have found SATA controller mode. This should be set to AHCI. You can change this pressing SPACE.
But also settings the BIOS to default should do this job.

Hi All,

First time poster here.

Have had my Toshiba C660 PSC0LE-00500JEN now for the best part of 18 months, and now looking to extend its capabilities.

I dont really have a LAN at home, but have a WLAN, so am looking to implement "Wake on Wireless Lan".
I have the "Realtek PCIe FE - RTL8188CE Wireless LAN 802.11n adapter, and when I viewed the settings of it, the box to allow it to "allow this device to wake the computer from sleep" seems to have been greyed out.

I am looking to see if this adapter will allow the laptop to wake from sleep, or if it can only be done on the LAN cable...


Answer:Satellite C660 PSC0LE - Can i enable the "Wake on WLan" option?


I think this is not possible.
As far as I know in BIOS the ?Wake Up on WLan? is not supported and the Wlan works only if the system has been booted up.

>...Satellite Pro C660-16N - Windows 7 64bit Home Premium preinstalled...

Does anyone know what the best route is to change Win7 64bit to Win7 32bit. Does this model have a 32bit install option on HDD recovery?

Or will it have to be a clean install from a Win7 32bit DVD.

Many thanks.

Answer:Changing Win7 64bit to 32 bit on Satellite Pro C660-16N

I presume this notebook is offered with 64bit version only (specification) and there is only one way to install 32 bit OS version ? you must install it using original Microsoft Win7 32 bit installation disc.
Please note: for OS activation you cannot use product key from the sticker. You must buy new licence for your own installation.

By the way: check also if this notebook model is supported for 32 bit version. You can do this on Toshiba support and download page under

If you have more questions you are welcome.

After a problem with my SatC 660 i decided to Nuke the hard drive and do a fresh install using a W7 32 Bit disk created from the web ( there is a free library of Windows 7 iso images (Sorry forgot name).

So i had the disk in and the disk drive which has the disk in, W7 is now saying it cant find the device driver for the DVD Drive which it has just used for it to show the W7 first screen.

Looked everywhere for the drivers for the DVD Drive but no joy on the web.

Can anybody help me out please?

Answer:Satellite C660 - need help with fresh Win7 installation

Maybe stupid question on the beginning but why you don't install original Win7 64 bit? I presume you got your machine with preinstalled operating system.

> So i had the disk in and the disk drive which has the disk in, W7 is now saying it cant find the device driver for the DVD Drive which it has just used for it to show the W7 first screen.
Sorry but after reading this sentence I?m completely confused and don't know how to understand this. If you have created bootable installation disc I hope you were able to install Win7 correctly. After first start you must continue to install all necessary drivers, tools and utilities that you can find on Toshiba download page -

Optical disc drive uses Microsoft driver and there is no some special driver for this device. It must be recognized automatically by preinstalled operating system.

If my posting was not helpful for you please be more precise with your problem description.

Good morning!

The first apologize for my English, I am Spanish and use a translator.

I have a Satellite C660-1NX (PSC1LE-00F00NCE), I had to reformat the computer, put on a clean Windows 7 64x (not recovery) with all original drivers giving official Toshiba page,

Everything looks perfect but when turn off the computer is completely frozen, I thought it was 64x and 86x and install the same, the first day all right, then started the same problem, eh updated BIOS, as usual, before formatting this did not happen, it is very weird,

I find the reason for the problem never happened to any computer this.

Best regards

Answer:Satellite C660-1NX freezes while shutdown after clean Win 7 installation

?and what happen when you install the system using Recovery disk?
Does the notebook freezes too?

I doubt someone will be able to say why the unit does not shut down properly.
I think first of all its necessary to find out if its hardware or software related problem.

In case its software related issue, the recovery disk containing the configured Toshiba image should resolve this annoying issue.

I have a Satellite C660-115 that is stuck in a "loop of despair".
I'm an IT support engineer and a customer brought this notebook to me, which was stuck in a Win7 (64 bit prem) repair loop which simply said Win7 could not be repaired.

I backed up customer profile using Hiren boot CD (did chkdsk as well - all OK), then did a factory restore.
No problem at all with the restore.

Started to do Win7 updates; SP1 seemed to install OK without errors.
The system then picked up 37 Win7 updates automatically and requested a reboot.
On reboot Win7 went into "drvload.exe" and started an automatic repair.
This took some time and the system did start up OK, but without any sign of SP1, so looks like the system restored to an earlier point?

I've though the this update process 3 times now and every time, after a batch of auto updates, the same sequence occurs.

How do I get out of this loop? What is causing this problem, which I've never seen before?

No software has been installed, other than that from the recovery process.
I've even uninstalled McAfee, just in case this might be an issue - no change.

Ah, just took another look. Noted in Win7 system logs that the restore was caused by a corrupted C:\ci.dll file. Googled to find this was a sign of by a rootkit virus in the HDD Master Boot Record (the ci.dll file itself is NOT corrupted) . Found a fix tool

I recently purchased toshiba Satellite C660 M21G Laptop with windows 7 32 bit installed (not licensed) and I installed all the hardware drivers except the SM Bus Controller and the Nvidia GeForce graphic adapter driver, this because it does not exit on toshiba web site, or by other mean it exist but when I try to install either the Chipset utility or the display driver (VGA driver) an error message appear in both installation indicates that I didnt matched the minimum system software requirments for installing both the Dispaly adapter and the chipset.

I dont know why those requirments does not included in the error message ?

I have more that 12 hours trying to find a way out to install the dispaly driver because the standard VGA driver that windows 7 (32 bit) installed is very poor and i cant running any games or playing video smoothly

best regards

Answer:Satellite C660-M21G SM bus controller and display driver installation issue

From my knowledge the Satellite C660-M21G belongs to the PSC1SE series.
I?m wondering where did you find the right display driver for this series?
The notebook seems to support the NVIDIA GeForce 315M

I checked the Toshiba European driver page and not all Win 7 32bit drivers are released on the European driver page? I think you tried to install wrong or not compatible graphic card driver and therefore this error message appeared while installing the drivers.

But it seems that Win 7 64bit driver is available for this series therefore I would recommend testing the driver for Win 7 64bit.
The SM bus controller might be the Card reader and in such case you should install the Card Reader Controller driver from Realtek. There is also an Win 7 64bit driver version available on European driver page?

Test it simply?

My Satellite A350 (PSAL6A) has after only about 6 months crashed with a fatal hard drive error.

I?ve decided to up the hard drive to something a little faster (5400 rpm) and finally rid myself of the dreaded Vista.
I?m upgrading to Win 7 (64) but I?m a bit suspect of some of the web sites offering Toshiba drivers

hello guys. I want to make some questions

I have windows vista in my laptop and I want to make a clean installation with windows 7 64 bit. I have seen that drivers are ok in the site. So here are my questions

a) should i delete the hidden recovery partition or not? (eisa config if i remember correct)

b) I have taken 4 dvds with toshiba recovery disc creator. If I erase every partition in the laptop how can I restore my DVDs? With a programme in Windows or just setting bios to boot from dvds and then the procedure is automatic? Is the first dvd bootable?

thanks in advance and sorry for my english

Answer:Satellite L500-128 - Clean installation of Windows 7 64bit


a) Of course you can delete this hidden WinRE partition. If you have installed a new/other OS, this partition is useless.

b) You?re right. To restore factory settings from Toshiba recover disk you have to boot from the disks. The first disk is bootable and there you can start from the installation. This happens automatically, only few clicks are necessary to confirm the installation and create the user accounts, etc. Pretty easy and all drivers and tools are installed too! :)

Hi all

I was updating BIOS on TOSHIBA SATELLITE C660-13R from windows 7 64 bits. Downloaded driver from toshiba web. Half way the installation laptop freezes. I have left it for 40 mins to run but it did not get back to normal state. As motherboard fan has started to move on high speed I decided to take battery out. In result when I power back my laptop I have 1 beep from the motherboard and black screen.

Can some one help me please ?

Answer:Satellite C660-13R - BIOS update issue

Obviously the BIOS update procedure has failed. Something went wrong during the update process and it looks like the EMRPOM module has not been flashed properly.
This is the reason why the notebook does not work anymore.

Possible solution?
Well, if EMPROM isn?t damage, it should be possible to re-flash the BIOS module once again using special BIOS version and BIOS crisis disk.
Usually the Toshiba authorized service provider in your country should be able to re-flash the module using such crisis disk.

I read also in this forum that some people managed to re-flash the EPROM module using some 3rd party crisis disk found somewhere in the internet? but this did not work always?
So probably the ASP will be your last resort?

However, use the forums advanced search option to find related threads about the BIOS crisis disk? could be interesting for you

I have an issue without solution with my Satellite C660 (for the moment i hope!) I downloaded the software google sketchup 8, dedicated to the architecture drawing, but it doesnt work, I always have a bug message informing that it is necessary to update de drivers of the graphic card (According to google support it seems that OPENGL functions should be implemented in the drivers of my laptop)

So I have downloaded the last available drivers for the configuration I have ( Intel HD graphics for pentium, windows 7 64 bits) ;

the link ( french website, the one for Intel is not currently available, it is an .exe document)

I have tried to manually update de graphic card driver with the device manager menu (graphics card > update the drivers button> manual file.exe selection ), but at the end there is no update, I only have a very quick message informing that windows has determinated that the drivers are already updated.

Actually there is no changes on the drivers (still the same date of the pilotes 28/07/2010 in the graphics card properties) and sketchup is still out of work

Any suggestions?

- Intel? Celeron? Processor T3500
- 2048 MB DDR3 RAM (800MHz).

recently I upgrade my RAM to 4 GB (2+2 GB), since installation, as soon windows7 64 bit start loading, ended up with BSOD. sometime windows loads fine but within a minute or two BSOD appears. I can confirm that it does read the full RAM of 4GB, I checked while laptop was on for 2 or 3 minutes ON. then I take out 1 RAM stick laptop is fine, no BSOD!!

so question raises if RAM is at fault, mismatch etc. but I have dual boot OS and other OS is Ubuntu 11. that reads the RAM 3.84GB, and no crashing or BSOD or any issue.

Then I installed Windos 7 32 bit to check if that still has issues with 4GB RAM, but NO, 32 bit reads RAM as 4GB(Usable 2.8GB). no crashing or BSOD with 32 version, only problem with 64 bit windows!!!!
I checked specification it says Max RAM 4GB Ram and yes it does support 4GB RAM with Linux and win7 32 bit.

just wondering if any of you can guide me to right direction.

Having recently set up a new Satellite C660-1ZM running Windows 7 64bit (upgraded from Home Premium to Ultimate) for a friend, the mousepad and USB ports have suddenly stopped working. The drivers show an exclamation mark against them and the error is "code 52" which is related to driver signing. Windows doesn't seem to recognise the driver signatures for the published drivers that came on the machine's pre-installed disc, so the devices don't work. I've updated the drivers (Intel chipset [which includes USB]; Synaptics touchpad) to the latest ones publised on the Toshiba web site - and we have the same problem.

Pressing F8 on boot allows you to select "disable checking of driver signing" in the WIndows 7 boot options, which then enables the drivers and all is well, until you reboot - at which point you have to hit F8 again.

I think that one of the many recent Windows updates has somehow messed things up, but we can't easily prove that. The machine worked fine for a week or so, then the mousepad suddenly quit working around 8th August 2012.

1) Are there valid signed drivers that pass whatever checks Microsoft impose on driver signing, including whatever checks they've potentially just imposed via some recently inflicted update?

2) Does anyone know exactly how to disable the checking of driver signing permanently, so that a reboot will not require the F8 keypress and so on?

Answer:Satellite C660-1ZM Win 7 64bit: mousepad and USB - "code 52" driver error


Did you receive the error that windows cannot verify the digital signature for the drivers required for this device? Usually this means the error code 52
Since the USB drivers are parts of the Windows OS, I don?t think that this could be an signature issue? I think some files are damaged.

Try to uninstalling/reinstalling the driver and deleting the device and it?s drivers from device manager before reinstalling.
Usually this should help, if not, well try to repair the system.

Power up the unit and press F8. Then choose Repair my Computer.
Now choose the first option which would help to repair the system.

I have toshiba C660-1u1.
I want to know, how to disaseembly to clean cpu and the fan.
One manual to disassembly or step by step.


Answer:How to diassembly to clean Satellite C660


I would not recommend to disassemble the notebook only to clean the fans.
Fact is that disassembling is tricky and you would lose the warranty.
But important thing to know is that you can clean the fans using compressed air spray. This is good enough to get the dust and debris removed from the cooling modules.

I have a satellite C660-23M and have recently reinstalled Windows 7 to get a clean install without bloatware.

I have installed Value Added Products and the Flash Cards Support Utility and, on the whole, the functionality of the Fn+F keys work OK and give an appropriate OSD, so that one can see what is happening when using the key controls.

Unfortunately however, Fn+3 (reduce volume) and Fn+4 (increase volume,) whilst functioning correctly in terms of actually effecting a reduction or increase in the volume setting, do not show an appropriate simultaneous OSD which would allow one to confirm the effect, and fine-tune the level of volume actually set.

Can anyone help with a fix/solution please ?

Answer:Satellite C660-23M: Volume OSD not working under Fn Key+2 or 3 using Win7

Maybe stupid question now but have it worked as you wisch with original preinstalled Win7?
I ask this because on my NB520 i use the same key combination but volume OSB is not shown on the screen.

I can just see that taskbar symbol is changing.

We have a number of C660's and up until last week we have hid minimal problems with it.

Now we are experiencing something very strange.

On a couple of the laptops we have lost the LAN when booted into to Windows 7.

Anybody else had this problem and know of a solution?


Answer:Satellite C660 LAN missing while booting the Win7


Do you mean that your LAN card is not visible in device manager or what?

Usually if no network cable is plugged to the LAN jack, the system switches off the LAN network adapter to extend the battery run time.

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?


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 searched for 32bit drivers on the toshiba website and there are not for 32 bit. I tried 64bit unsuccesfully.

Please advice if you have the right drivers. I canot install 64bit version due tu some application conflicts.

Answer:Need Win7 32bit drivers for Satellite C660-1MP

You are right. Drivers for Win7 32bit are not offered. But there is one interesting thing: your notebook has Intel HM65 Express Chipset and this chipset is offered on several other models and none of them is supported for 32 bit OS.

I?ve tried to find something but unfortunately without success. Sorry. Try to find driver on Intel support page. If you will find it let us know. We can try to find other important drivers together.

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?

hello every1,

this is my first time posting here as i couldnt find an answer to my question anywhere on the net. actualy there are many little questions instead of a big one.

1) i recently bough an acer aspire 5745g to replace my "old" sony vaio vgn-fw41e.
now.. the acer has significantly better specs than the vaio and for some reason it feels like its a lot worse..
it takes 2-3 mins to fully load windows where the vaio only took 30 secs
it is slower at opening applications such as mozilla, msn, winLive mail and some more
and the graphics on games dont respond that well than with the vaio
what could be the cause of this? i have cleared all the items from the startup and maximized performance for nvidia graphics and still dont see any difference..

2)i was thinking about doing a clean reinstall of win7 pro ( it came with home edition) so i can maybe get rid of any acer programs i dont need. the thing is.. as with my previous laptop, i needed to install the drivers in a very specific order to get them all working properly.
i cant find that order for the aspire 5745g and even though i found the drivers on their support site i see many different drivers for the same thing. how can i know which one is for my pc?

i just feel like i got screwed .

well..there actually were only 2 relatively big questions after all.
i would really appreciate any help you could give me!

Answer:win7 64bit clean install on acer aspire

A clean install might be the easiest, at this point. It is probably all the software already on the laptop that is causing this problem.

If you upload a msinfo32 report for us, we can find you the drivers you may need. Chances are, though, that your devices will work fine with the default Windows drivers.

Hey Guys,

I've been having an on and off issue with my touchpad for at least a couple of months now. I've tried doing the function +F9 thing with little effect. I also re-downloaded the synaptics driver which seems to make it work for a little while but then it started working only sporadically.

Currently my touchpad works some of the time, if it fails at first pressing Ctrl Alt Del and then Esc seems to make it work for a little while longer but after that it simply stops working. I'm a student and not having a fully functioning laptop is often a great hindrance so any help would be great.



Answer:Satellite Pro C660 - on and off issue with the Touchpad


My first question is: when did you notice this touchpad issue.

I mean, the Sat Pro C660 is an older notebook and if this issue did not appear from first day of purchase, then something has affected the touchpad functionality in the past.

The question is: is there something wrong with software or maybe touchpad module.
I think this can be answered only settings the notebook back to factory state.
If you recover the notebook using Toshiba recover disk, you will get exactly the same state like at the first day of purchase.

If touchpad would still not work properly, well then there is some hardware problem

After reading your posting I don?t know what the problem is. The temperature you mentioned in your posting is not on critical level so I think there is no reason for panic.

When you want to play the game, close all useless applications, switch to high performance power plan and be sure notebook is placed properly on the desk. Cooling fans should not be blocked and notebook must be able to ?take a breath?.

Until there is no ?unexpected switch off? there is no reason for panic.

Hi all!

I have Toshiba Satellite C660-1GK for about year and a half. After 6 months my hard disk drive died.

First the laptop got really slow and then started the famous clicking sound from the disk.
I've made backup and checked the drive with Hirens tools. Toshiba diag won't even read it, S.M.A.R.T. said that his health is poor (30% or so), bad sectors started popping out.. so I've took the laptop to my ASP.

They replaced the disk and then, 13 months later (a week ago) the same story! Disk health went even lower (was at 11%) and bad sectors started jumping out like maniacs.
Again a trip to ASP.

I've got my laptop today with a new disk. After reading posts on this forum, I'm worried that it's or motherboard/power supply problem or we're just all with bad luck with drives.

I just can't accept that disks randomly die every 4-12 months as an answer. My last disk on HP laptop lasted 4 years! I have about five more months of warranty and I'm really not happy with situation. This laptop is on my work desk, has it's own station with a nice, big fan so it's not overheating - basically I've took it out of house last September.

I'm careful with it! But if this drive dies before end of year, maybe it's time to get a new laptop.
Not Toshiba this time :(

Please, do you have any thoughts, advices..?

Answer:Satellite C660-1GK - HDD partition C issue


Some years ago i purchased an notebook from another manufacturer.
My first HDD died after more than 2 years of usage. I bought another one, replaced the old HDD and the new HDD died after 4 month of usage.

Any HDD will die sooner or later because its expendable part? it?s a matter of HDD usage and matter of how you handle the unit.

In my opinion it?s a bad luck? of course its always pity if an HDD start to malfunction but I?m afraid there are no many options to prevent it.
Of course you could switch to an SSD drive which is much stable in use. I did it some month ago? I purchased the 250GB SSD drive and replaced the internal HDD

Hi I have just recently been provided a Satellite C660 for my further education, though I do believe in my haste to get it set up how I like to set up my computers I might of turned off the hot-keys now reading about on this forum I have found that to make them work again I will need to allow TOSHIBA Button Support to run at start up, but no matter how hard i try to find it on msconfig it no longer seems to be there, any one have any ideas about where I could find it on the C drive?

Though one of the strangest things I have noticed about this problem is that the volume hot-keys still work perfectly its just the rest of them.


Just to let other people out there know I think I have solved my problem, here is the process I used to fix the hot-key issue.

Start menu - -> write msconfig in the search box on vista or windows 7 (if using XP type it into the run box) --> go to start up --> look for KeNotify Application and select it to run at start up.

There you have it it seemed to fix my issue so I hope it helps you out.

i am having a kind of software glitch on my laptop. when i turned it on, it showed a message with options either to launch startup repair (recommended) or start windows normally. i chose the first option as that seem to be the recommended option and i thought this might repair if there was any damage. however, after the repair process was completed, it showed an error message with steps to install Windows. i am getting this message now everytime i turn my laptop on!

Since i have the software pre-isntalled on my laptop, i do not have the Windows 7 disc with me. this is really strange as i am unsure why this happened.

Although my laptop is covered with the warranty, i am not sure if it covers the software warranty too?

Please can some one advise me on the best way out of this problem.

its really very painful and irritating to deal with this, as its been just 5 months since i bought this laptop.

Looks like something has gone wrong with the installed OS.
Not sure why but it seems that you need to reinstall the windows once again.

> ince i have the software pre-isntalled on my laptop, i do not have the Windows 7 disc with me. this is really strange as i am unsure why this happened.

You did not receive any disks because the notebook supports the HDD recovery and additionally there was/is a option to create a own recover disk.
You could use the Recover disk creator software in order to create such disks?
But not sure if this would be possible now because of the error?

So would recommend starting the HDD recover as described here.

Hi there,

I have purchased a Satellite C660-17J and occasionally when I turn it on (holding the power button for 2 or three seconds and then releasing) - it doesn't seem to power on properly eg - fan starts - power light comes on - but not screen. If I hold the power button again it goes off. Then if I try again it will come on but the date and time resets itself to 2008.

Any ideas or will I have to send it back to Amazon as faulty? (could do without doing that!).

Answer:Satellite C660-17J - Power on issue

Hi ebarnyard,

When you connect an external screen, can you see something on it or is it still black as internal screen?

> Then if I try again it will come on but the date and time resets itself to 2008.
Do you mean the time of Windows or BIOS?

Generally speaking I must say this is no normal behavior and in my opinion it?s something wrong with hardware itself. So I would contact an authorized service provider in your country and ask the guys to check your notebook what?s wrong with it because hardware repair is for free due warranty time ;)

I am having an issue with the keyboard on my Satellite c660 laptop, part number: PSC1LE.
The best way I can describe it is as a stuttering problem because it comes and go's (fine for a few hours, then not for a short while).

The problem is that for reasons unknown to me I keep encountering a problem where the A, N and Enter keys do not work when pressed. Occasionally pressing the key repeatedly (they aren't jammed) just makes the letter come out, but I can't keep pressing the key five or six times to get one letter. Just to mention, I have not spilled anything on the keyboard.

I have done full anti-virus and spyware scans but have found no issues.
I have this evening done all of the windows updates available to me, however it doesn't seem to have done the trick.

After restarting the device following the updates all worked well for about 15 minutes, until the same three keys stopped working again. On this occasion it lasted only for a couple of minutes, and now I am writing this with the same keyboard.

Note: I am not using the original keyboard. I changed the board due to minor material damage but had it done privately.
However this was done the better part of a year ago and has worked perfectly since being installed, until this new issue occurred in the last few weeks.

If anyone has any further recommendations or suggestions as to what may be the cause or any solutions then please share them.

Answer:Satellite C660 - Keyboard issue

I think you would understand that nobody is able to say why your keyboard malfunctions.
Only if the notebook hardware has been checked/scanned, it would be possible to say what?s wrong here?
But generally speaking there is a good workaround to diagnose the problem.

You could connect the external USB keyboard to the notebook and could check if the same problems with the mentioned buttons will occur.

In case the external USB keyboard would work properly, I think that your internal keyboard is the troublemaker? in such case you would need to replace the keyboard once again.

Apologies if this is the wrong subforum:

Being the idiot I am, I changed my WIndows Login password and since I use very long passwords, I have no idea what I changed it to. Guessing is out of the question.

So I powered on my laptop while holding the 0 key, which brought me to the Windows Boot Manager screen. I pressed F8 on Windows 7 for advanced options and opted for 'Recovery Mode' as I have used this in the past to install the OS from scratch.

It asks me to select a keyboard layout and then enter my username and password to procede with HDD Recovery. It is this lack of password which is the reason for recovery.

Any advice on what I can do?


Answer:HDD Recovery Issue on C660 Satellite

On this step you must enter your Windows login name and login password. Without right password you will not be able to start HDD recovery installation.

There is second option to install recovery image. You can do it now using recovery DVD. Have you created it using preinstalled Toshiba recovery disc creator?

When my wife got off the plane a baggage handler helped her by pushing her mother in the wheelchair and dragging one of the bags behind him allowing my wife to take care of the rest of the luggage. Unfortunately the laptop that was sitting on top of that bag decided that it didn't like the ride, it jumped off the bag and tried to enter the terminal under its own battery power.

There is no visible damage to the laptop as it was inside the laptop bag and no cracks or anything on the screen. When the laptop turns on, the screen can remain blank, flicker or it will display the log on and desktop but instead of showing white it displays a pinkish purple, only white is affected not off white. Other colours display correctly although they do look as if the display is set to 256 colour or using the wrong driver.

I connected an external monitor to it and that works fine with full colour. If the laptop screen flickers a light tap to the back of it will get it to stay on but the colour isn't corrected. I am thinking that it may be just a loose connection or broken wire between the screen and the motherboard but not sure if the change in colour would be caused by this.

Satellite C660 (PSC1LA-00J001) looks brand new but I don't think it would be worth taking in to get fixed.

Any ideas on what the problem might be?

It took me 2 1/2 hours to post this exact same message because somewhere in there is profanity or inappropriate language. :(

Answer:Satellite C660 - screen issue


On this virtual way it is not possible to say for sure what is wrong there. Your notebook must be disassembled and all must be checked. Graphic card seems to be OK so there must be some problem with connectors, cable or with the display itself.
>Satellite C660 (PSC1LA-00J001) looks brand new but I don't think it would be worth taking in to get fixed.
Why not? Even display exchange is not so problematic. Googling around you will find many online stores where you can order new display, if necessary. Even on eBay you can get it for reasonable price.

If you don't have experience with this stuff I recommend you to contact nearest Toshiba service provider or some independent IT service and ask for help. Check which options are available and how much you must pay for repair.

Good people of Seven Forums,

The last two days have been Geek Hell for me. I finally upgraded everything in my system, and to naturally take advantage of my 16GB's of DDR3 RAM (Oh joy, oh redundant joy!) I wanted to install Win7 64Bit Pro which I got from my college and have burned on a CD, complete with Key and everything.

My previous PC build worked super-fine under Win7 32bit and I double checked th DVD of Win7 64bit just to make sure it was operational and fine.

Well, I go into BIOS, set my boot options for DVD, since I only have the one blank hard drive in the new PC.

Slam-bang. BOSD the precise second the "Starting Windows" graphics appear. It says "Loading Files" once really fast and twice, loading in increments from the DVD and then, without fail or mercy BOSD (I attached the files as per your directions). The insane thing is, after double checking and solo-checking every last component of my PC, I found them all to be in top form. Desperate I took the machine to service ( A huge disgrace for a hardcore nerd) where they told me that it was simply a matter of me having left in my old sata 2 HDD (right...) and simply removed it, told me they'd installed win7 and uninstalled from DVD without problems (didn't ask if it was 64 bit, in hindsight, that would have been crucial) and gave it back to me.

Answer:vista32bit to win7 64bit installation problem

ok i own a toshiba satellite l305d-s5940
you can not upgrade a 32 bit operating system to a 64 bit operating system
what you have to do is the following

make a backup of all of the data(music, pictures, etc)
then do a bios update for the unit
then wipe the hard drive out clean and install 7 with the disk that toshiba may have sent you or your own copy.
if its a disk that toshiba sent you just ignore any messages you get when doing a clean install.
then download all the drivers and do windows update. for WIN7 thers only like 30-40 updates for seven.(i just did it on a netbook)

then your all set.

Last year I purchased a Satellite C660-1G3 laptop from UK; even today, I am using the factory settings, and running the originally installed Windows 7 OS. The following is the issue that I started facing yesterday onwards:
- Even when the battery is well-plugged and the laptop running, the Power Meter indicates a falling charge level, with the "Plugged in, Not Charging" notification. The orange LED keeps blinking

- However, when I completely shut-down the laptop, without touching anything (not even touching the adapter or the power cord), the orange LED indicating battery charging process stops blinking and becomes stable

- On re-starting the laptop, for about 1 minute or so, the battery appears to be charging (orange LED not blinking and "Plugged in, Charging" message). However, soon the orange LED again starts blinking and the nuisance message again comes up

A couple of things:
- the battery seems to be working fine and charging properly when laptop is shutdown (in fact, till a couple of days back, the battery used to show 2:30 hours of time available on 100% charged level)
- is there some issue with the Operating system? no idea on that

can experts help me in resolving this issue? I do not really want to approach the Service Center due to long distance involved.

- Biren

Answer:Re: Satellite C660-1G3 - "Plugged in, Not Charging" issue

Hi Biren

Not sure if I can help you but I would like to provide you some tips.

1) Check if your BIOS is up to date. If Toshiba European driver page provides newer version, then update the BIOS. Additionally set the BIOS to default pressing F9 and save changed pressing F10.
2) Try to calibrate the battery. To calibrate the battery you should discharge the battery completely and charge the battery again. Repeat this procedure 2-3 times in the row.
3) Remove the battery and AC adaptor and press power button (30 sec long) then connect both parts and check if the LED would start blinking again.

Finally I think that the notebook should be tested using new, good working battery. But if the issue would still persist, then I would assume that your motherboard might be affected.

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


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.

If I install a lower level of this driver( VGA std graphic carte at level 6.1.7600.16385) ,Stellarium works but very slowly and some functions (like zoom) are bugging.
Stellarium support center recommands to install a more recent level of intel HD graphics driver but I don't find a more recent level working with P6100 processor on Intel download site.
Can you help me?

Hi, I ran my computer for about 2 days with the clean installation of Windows on my SSD and it was running fine. Now whenever I start up my computer after the Starting Windows Logo, my screen hangs on a black screen for around 1-2mins without a cursor, and then proceeds to the Welcome screen, starting up normally. This was the main reason why I reintalled Windows and I thought it would fix this problem, which it did not... I have uninstalled Avast! and installed Microsoft Security Essentials, tired reinstalling graphics drivers. I can enter Safe Mode without any problems. The problem occurred after I installed 95 required Windows Update's and after the installation I booted into safe mode to try and delete Windows from my HDD. I failed at doing that so I restarted my computer normally and the black screen hang occurred. I ran a boot manager log and I will upload it (Windows Performance Analyzer Session File is contained in the ZIP). Thanks.
Edit: Hang* made a mistake in the title sorry.

Hi, I've got a Satellite Pro C660-2DN, and I'm trying to update my display driver through the Toshiba UK website as Intel refers me to Toshiba when I do their driver assessment thing.

I've downloaded the three latest display driver updates that I can find in the list that corresponds to the C660 but none of them will install - the temp files are extracted, but then nothing happens. Could anyone help me?

I've been trying to get a game called Football Manager 2008 to work on this laptop for a long time. I've trawled the Internet for a solution to my problems running it, but I haven't found anything that works for me. In fact, the majority of the time, the problem seems to be solved by the person updating their graphics driver.

I've been trying to find an update that works for me, but I've not found anything so far.

Anyone shed any light on this?

Answer:Satellite C660 - 1F1 Graphic Driver Update?


From my knowledge the notebook supports the Intel HD graphic card (IntelHM55)
So latest driver can be downloaded from Intel page directly.

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
Toshiba website offers version 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


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 -

Good luck
