Preferred Solution: Toshiba Satellite L300 - I cant find anything on support site

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.)

I would like to have some support about my laptop, which was bought in France few years ago.
But, The 24L doesn't appear in Toshiba laptop model available on French websites.
My serial number doesn't works also.

Is it normal ?
I'm pretty sure it's a French model, bought in France with a French keyboard... it would be strange to not be.

After a BIOS upgrade made under windows,my system doesn't reboot any more.F2,F8 keys are ineffective at power up time.The screen remains black and there is only some permanent accesses to the CD/DVD reader.

Can somebody explained me what has happended and how to repair if possible? Must i reflash the BIOS or something else.

Thanks a lot

Answer:Satellite Pro L300 doesn't reboot after BIOS upgrade from TOSHIBA Site

In my opinion something went wrong during the update and the ROM module has not been flashed properly.
According to people here in the forum, only an Toshiba service agent can help you.

But I found an interesting thread here in the forum which might be helpful to you.

Check the advice posted by user ale210 ?

I have just been looking at the services running on my computer, and there are two which i am not sure whether i use or if i can set them to disabled if i don't use them.

Toshiba Navi support service......
Toshiba Smart log service......

Any information on what these services actually do
I did do a search on these, and could not find any information , mostly people sending hijack this logs in.

While i am here the other two services are

Toshiba Optical Disc drive servive....
Toshiba Power saver.......

Do i need all these services running, and if possable could anybody give me any links to find out information on these services.

Thankyou all.

Answer:Satellite L300 - Disabling of Toshiba services: Navi support & Smart log


Why do you want to disable these services? I mean the services will be installed with the Toshiba tools and I think they are necessary for the properly working Toshiba functions like FN keys, Flash Cards, etc.

On my Qosmio notebook with Vista I have the same services but I don?t find more informations about these in services.msc

I can give an example: Few days ago I also thought about disable some Toshiba services. I did it and restart the notebook and what happens? The FN keys and Flash Cards are not working anymore. So I activated the services and then all was working again.

So I think the better way is you disable some other services. With Google you should find enough hits. ;)

Hi Newton_1,

It?s nice that you have founded this forum and post here a little bit but some important informations are missing.

Which OS you have?
How did you reinstall Windows (Microsoft or Toshiba disk)?

Furthermore it would be interesting to know what you mean with Ethernal driver. Do you mean Ethernet driver?

Normally if you reinstall Windows by using Toshiba recovery disk you don?t need a special driver. Everything is preinstalled on your computer.

I have a Toshiba Satellite L300-22U (PSLB8E).

1. I updated the BIOS to Version 2.2.
I additionally found some firmwareupdates on the Toshiba Website. See screenshot

The problem is: harddisk is a Hitachi HTS543225L9SA00 and dvd RAM is hl-dt-st dvdram gsa-t50n

So do I need to use these firmwareupdates?

2. I m asking for, because I want to change from Vista to Windows 7 and want to make sure, that there won't be any problems.

How would I go about asking Toshiba for the installation CD? My laptop (L300-1BV) came with the operating system Pre-installed, so can I ask them for the CD?
But I am not sure how I would go about it.

Any advice?

Answer:Satellite L300-1BV - Can I ask Toshiba for the installation CD?


I think you mean the Toshiba recovery disk. Is that correct?

If yes you can create Toshiba recovery disk yourself. Therefore start the Toshiba recovery disk creator to create this disk.
This disk that you can create contains the preinstalled OS with all drivers and tools from Toshiba. It?s also called ?factory settings? or let?s say the same as you have started the notebook the first time.

Normally you get a recovery reminder message and I think this information could be useful for you:

+your system is equipped with hard disk recovery system. if you need to repair+
+your computer by restoring it to original factory state, you can do it directly+
+from harddisk (press F8 when you boot your computer, choose "Repair your computer"+
+and follow the menue instructions) or create a bootable Recovery Disc Medium for this purpose.+

+Toshiba recommends you to create Recovery Disc Medium using the "Toshiba Recovery Disc Creator" to ensure+
+hat you are able to restore your computer to the original factory installed state, even if your computer+
+gets seriously damaged+

After installing Spybot & Spyware Doctor in Safe Mode With Networking & attempting to run a few scans with them on a Toshiba Satellite L300 that got to just before user login screen but no further before.

But got the dreaded BSOD & now, regardless of what mode I boot I get it everywhere before the user login screen, including LKGC. On the rare occassion that it doesn't do this I get a grey background with a system error that says: 'System Restore Options: The installed program cannot start. Click OK to turn off the computer'.

Hello Expert,
Last week, I stayed at rented place for a week. To protect my Laptop, I created a user login with password. In mean while I also deleted the the guest and adminstrator account (default account). I donot know why...
now I removed the password from user login. so I can access the machine without waiting for autentication...

But today when I tried to install a software, it is asking me for password of Toshiba account.

upto my best knowldege, I have never created a Toshiba account...all my accounts are without password..

From internet I found this software to read the password of window...(opcrack)..
This software is showing four account on the machine(Guest, Administrator, dkengg,ASpnet) without passport.

there is no clue of Toshiba....and on control panel->useraccount->(there is only one account dkengg) because I have deleted all other last week..

any clue on Toshiba password...

I have bought this laptop from Carphone warehouse ..
so if you need any autentication, then plesase let me know..
I can provide all the copy of bills..


Answer:Toshiba Password request on Satellite L300-16L

At first I must say this is user-to-user forum so this with bills and copies will not work here. Maybe you should contact your local dealer or authorized Toshiba service.

I really don't know what you have done but fact is that Toshiba notebooks are not delivered with any passwords and restrictions. When you get new notebook everything is ?open? and you can create own accounts (during setup procedure at first start-up) and passwords.

I am afraid you have done something wrong and now you get this password request.
Can you, maybe sent a screenshot of your desktop when this request is shown?

The recovery disks were not delivered with your notebook because you have to create it yourself using preinstalled Toshiba recovery media creator. Did you do this as mentioned in user manual?

Anyway, now it?s too late if you have already installed another OS but you can order such a Toshiba recovery disk from Toshiba directly:

Dear Toshiba enthusiasts:

This week we installed three new Toshiba Satellite Pro L300 systems (two L300-153, one L300-156) with the provided Windows XP Product Recovery media from the L300-156 (no date on the disc, just two codes: GMR400841EN0 and CD 5D124624).

The machines are beautiful and very efficient except for one problem: when logging off or shutting down Windows XP, the program called "Toshiba Hotkey Properties" does not end automatically, and pops up an "End Program" dialogue box. The user can end the program immediately by clicking the "End Now" button or wait for it to time out, after which the system logs out and/or shuts down normally.

We noticed it only after installing Service Pack 3 on all machines, so I don't know if the problem was present before SP3 was applied. (We will definitely check for this on the next system and post the result.) Installing the remainder of the Windows Updates relative to Service Pack 3 didn't fix the problem. Neither did uninstalling Toshiba Hotkey Utility followed by installing the current, freshly downloaded package from Toshiba's support area.

A colleague suggested disabling related startup programs. There are two likely choices for this in the +Startup+ list of +msconfig+: *thotkey* and *TFncKy*. Disabling either one of these programs makes the problem disappear, but the functions of the *Fn* keys are lost. The key functions are also lost when uninstalling the Toshiba Hotkey Util... Read more

Answer:Satellite Pro L300 - Toshiba Hotkey Properties will not end

... just a minor correction to the above: the "End Program" dialogue never in fact times out; it just switches to another box requiring the user to confirm ending Toshiba Hotkey Properties before the system shuts down or logs off.

Again, this is the kind of thing that could be disorienting for the inexperienced user.

Would hope to get a response from a Toshiba engineer if there are any monitoring this forum.

thanks again, Robert

Answer:Need Toshiba utilities and drivers for Satellite L300-08T


As I?m not mistaken the Satellite L300-08T belongs to the Toshiba Canadian notebook series and if you would need any drivers, tools or utilities then you should search on the Toshiba Canada website.

You also don?t post anything about your kind of Windows Operating system?
If you will not find all needed drivers on the Canadian page then I would recommend checking the drivers from the European driver website;
Maybe some single drivers would run on your Canadian model.

This would mean that your notebook cannot pass the POST (Power On Self Test).

Power on self test is a short diagnostic test which checks the motherboard and the connected devices?
Theoretically everything could cause this issue? faulty motherboard, RAM malfunction, etc?

In your case I recommend removing the RAM modules and to check the single modules.
You can try to remove only one module. Check both modules using this procedure?

Otherwise you will need an help from professional technician? the guy could run some tests in order to find out what part malfunctions..

Over the last few weeks my laptop computer has been having problems connecting to the wireless network I have installed at home. When the laptop starts up it will initially connect to the network however after anywhere between 30 secs and 20 minutes it will disconnect.

The network is still shown as available, however when I try to re connect to the network it will tell me that connection is not available taking me to a screen to check the wireless security settings. I have checked these settings several times and both the SSID and network key are correct. This fails to enable a connection either.

my experience with computing is very limited, so I will be using very simple language and maybe some stupid words.

I have a Toshiba Satellite L300. I want to reboot it because of some research and some discussions that have been made through it.
I know that even if I delete them in my history they still remain in the hard disk, HHD.
So I wanted to reboot my pc, I have contacted computing guy who sold me the pc and he said that I can use a recovery disk to get back my original windows but does it mean that this disk will also install the old memory?

In short I was to boot my pc to get rid of all the images, msn discussions, google search being made from my pc.
Its History, the ones that are still keept in the pc but I can't get access to.
I haven't created my recovery disk yet but will it include my old files and history? or just windows and the drivers?

Answer:Satellite L300 - Toshiba Recovery Disck, what does it memorize?


As I understand you want to format (you call it ,, reboot) your hard disk to remove all the information such as history, files that nobody can read it.
Please, remember if you even format your hard disk, it's still possible to recovery all the data from your hard disk.
As I know, there is a good software called Tech Erase, it can securely destroy all the data on your hard disk and almost impossible to recover it (depending what algorithm use choose). But I don't understand why you need it. Do you have something special?
About talking recovery disk, you can make a new installation but the information from old one can be recovered by the special utilities.

My satellite L300 starts up with the Toshiba screen and keeps on starting regularly until I see the blue Windows sign saying Please wait... After that the screen goes black and it switches back to the Toshiba opening screen. I tried going into the system by pressing F2 or F12 but I am a technical noob and that is way to complicated for me.

According to my sister it has something to do with a faulty download and that I have to insert some kind of code in either of the systems (F2 or F12).

Is anyone familiar with this problem and can someone maybe explain to me how to fix this?

Thank you!

Answer:Satellite L300 keeps restarting to Toshiba opening screen

Try please to start notebook in safe mode.
When you switch it on press F8 to enter advanced boot options. There you will find safe mode option.

Wait until windows loads. I hope you will be able to do this.

What you can try then is to roll back OS to earlier time using system restore option.

The common modules driver is not installed and therefore you cannot install the Hotkey Utilities.

Therefore you should visit the Toshiba European driver. Should choose your notebook model and should download this Common Modules.

The Common Modules is very important and i can't install it.
My OS = XP SP2 64-bit SATA
laptop model: L300 1AM

There are very many questions on this issue (Common Modules not installed) and support boys do not give a solution.
That's mean is not possible to install Common Modules & other for certain types of laptops.

These posts are good only for SEO.

Is impossible for me to reinstall XP again. I saw in forum "The Common Modules is very important, you should always install this as soon as possible." How soon? before installing XP? That is a big stupiness.

Thank you for using the largest online support namely Toshiba.

Answer:Toshiba Common Modules is not installed on Satellite L300-1AM

Hello Chris

Can you please tell me what SEO is?

Anyway, what to say about your posting? The info about ?Common modules? is right but I don't understand your problem with it. Your notebook is supported for WXP 32-bit and you want to use WXP 64-bit. So first problem you have is that Toshiba doesn?t offer tools and utilities for WXP 64-bit.

On this point we can stop the discussion.

If you want to know how the ?Common modules? works and why is this important we can discuss about this too but it has nothing to do with your question about WXP 640bit installation on your notebook.

I am really surprised Toshiba guys didn?t explain it to you.

I am thinking of purchasing the Satellite L300-1AQ, how will i be able to connect to my Toshiba Regza 37" LCD?

The LCD has no VGA only 2 HDMI ports, is there a Toshiba notebook that has a HDMI port?
What is the most cost effective way on connecting any Toshiba notebook to my LCD TV?

Thanks for your help....

Answer:Satellite L300-1AQ Connection to Toshiba Regza 37" LCD AV series 37AV505DB


As far as I know the L300-1AQ supports only the RGB port (VGA port).
This port provides only analog signal and I doubt you will be able to connect it to HDMI port because you cannot convert an analog signal in digital signal.

I don?t know what further ports the Toshiba Regza 37" LCD supports but I think in this case the HDMI port is not useful.

Hello all,

I have a Toshiba Satellite Series L300 (2008 model) laptop which originally had Vista but I installed Windows 7 Professional on it. I now wish to return back to Vista.

I noted that the 'Windows.old' folder created on the C:/ drive seems to be missing a lot of files and could have been altered since the date it was created. I think it would be too risky to use it to recover back to Vista.

So my question is can I use my original set of Toshiba Recovery DVDs to get back to Vista? I want to do a full factory reset to recover my system to when it was originally purchased with Vista.

If the Recovery DVDs is not an option and the only was is by using the Windows.old folder, if it is lacking important files could it leave my system corrupted? I am sure there is a way to get back to Vista by factory restore somehow.

Comments and feedback urgently required!

Thanks in advance.

When I bought my L300-17l all drivers from Toshiba drivers download pafe worked ok.
Recently I reinstalled my XP OS and now I started installing again all the drivers. LAN was ok, WLAN was ok, Display driver was ok.

But when I get to install Toshiba Power Saver ( URL: [] ) it gives me this error ( it shows the error either after I click finish on the instalation or before installing has begun, as you can see on this screenshot ) - []

I tried later this - i go ot control panel and open Toshiba Power Saver, but then it gives me another error - " CANNOT open because you do not have access rights to use "TOSHIBA Power Saver".
I reinstalled again my XP and it still gives me this error....I wonder what the problem could be....PLS help me

Answer:Re: Satellite L300-17l - Toshiba Power Saver gives me error after install


Satellite L300-17L belongs to the PSLBCE series.
I chosen this model number and found exactly the same power saver which you have tried to install.
Therefore I assume you have chosen the right Power Saver Utility for this notebook model.

But did you install also the Common Module?
This software should be installed firstly before any other tools installation.
Did you update the Win XP to the latest state?

Hello !

I am an Indian, I purchased *"Toshiba Satellite L300-2CZ"* in France. I don't know French Language. I am an software guy.

One my family friend purchased it in on-line in 2009. It is good configuration but Bad-luck for me is, it contains *French keyboard and French Windows Vista*.
Anybody know how to solve this problem?

I am facing lot of problems while while writing software code by using this Frech keyboard because we use English- Qwerty keyboard.
*And Is it possible to install Toshiba's Windows-Vista -English version on it.*

I installed generic Win-Vista home edition on it , it is working but there is lot drivers missing, So I am not able to use my Laptop at minimum.
*Could you give me some information/suggestion to solve my problem.*

Thank you,

Answer:How to Install Win Vista -English Version on my Toshiba Satellite L300-2CZ

It's not a problem to dowload all drivers needed either from Toshiba support sites or other good places.
You need at least Chipset+Audio+Video+Network+Wireless drivers and (maybe) some additional like Touchpad, Quick buttons, Bluetooth, Web camera.

In rare cases you can google drivers for unknown device (or just recognise it) through vendor/product IDs in device manager (VID_xxxx&PID_yyyy string in device properties).

Problem with keyboard is simple (in most cases): buy keyboard stickers like this
It's not perfect solution but very cheap'n'fast.
Alternative solutions are laser engraved letters on your keyboard or new english keyboard from Toshiba service (I can't even imagine its price).

Guess you can't install *Toshiba's* Vista other than bundled with your laptop. But you can buy any boxed version of Windows meets your requirements, even Windows 7. There is no difference between *Toshiba's* and boxed version of Windows exept license limits, so I advise you to think about boxed Win7.

Just want to share the news that I was able to install the new Intel Chipset drivers that add OpenGL 2.0 support to their integrated graphics chips, such as the X3100.

This driver was released in December 2008 and even though Intel recommends waiting for OEM versions from Toshiba, I decided to try theirs.

I?ve got a U400 and I have installed a Intel graphic card driver from the Intel page too.
I didn?t execute the exe file but I updated my driver in device manager.
This worked fine.

Also I read here in the forum that drivers from external pages can be used only at the own risk because such drivers are not tested and not certified by Toshiba?

However, my U400 run trouble free till now.

The ink on the silver toshiba serial no./model no. panel on the back of my laptop rubbed off after only a week of use when i bought the pc last year. I am now having a problem with my touchpad not registering finger-cursor movements or strokes at a normal applied pressure. I have to press harder much of the time for the action to be registered. A third of the time it works fine at normal pressure.

It is still under warranty. Unless anyone can tell me of a possible reason for this[anyone?] then I guess I should probably send it in for repairs.

Where can I find the serial no. information? Is it stored electronically on windows anywhere? I have only a rough idea of what the serial number is - i managed to write down most of it when i noticed it had started to rub off.

Answer:Satellite L300-22L - Where can I find Windows 7 (32bit) drivers?

Hi Lena!

Normally you can answer this question yourself or why do you think on the Toshiba website are no Windows 7 drivers?

The question can be answered in one sentence: Windows 7 isn?t on the market as yet.
So this is the reason why you can?t find Windows 7 drivers at the moment.

I would imagine that driver support for Windows 7 will start after release in October. I mean on Vista and XP it was the same. After the official release the driver support started.
Furthermore at the moment it?s not easy to say what Toshiba notebooks will support Windows 7. That remains to be seen.

But let me give you a word of advice: The most Vista drivers are also work on Windows 7. So if you want to install Windows 7 beta you can try it with the Vista drivers from the Toshiba website.

Please inform us if everything works well.

BTW: have you created recovery DVD before you have installed new Vista version?

I was just gifted an HP ProBook 455 G3, product number W4E07UT#ABA. I can't find information for it anywhere on the HP site.  I would like to ultimately get access to any manuals and drivers.  I also want to know if this was sold with Win 10 (which is what's on it) or if it was manufactured with Win 7 and has been upgraded.  There are no stickers indicating the Operating System or Processor. Help.

Answer:Can't find product W4E07UT#ABA on the HP support site.

 I can't find anything using the Product number you gave. But here is the Support page for ProBook 455 G3. I believe it shipped with Windows 10. Amazon has it for sale-with Windows 10:

It is not possible. Do you know why?
You cannot search notebook using model name M70-165. On Toshiba download page it is listed by model number. Your Satellite M70-165 has part number PSM70E so please use it for notebook identification on download page -

Old models are listed in option ARCHIVE.

Please check it again.

Hi everyone.

Recently bought a Satellite P855-31K(PSPKBE) machine.When problems with discreet
GeForce GT 630M arose,went to Toshiba's support site to check for some drivers,only to find out that my machine is just not listed.Neither by entering my s.n.,nor trying to autodetect,it gives me "sorry,your model could not be found".
It is my 5th Toshiba notebook,and never did I experience such a problem.
Guys,maybe someone has any idea of what a heck is this?
Actually,I could have put up with it,if everything had been OK,but that bloody GT 630M would't run at all,either going to BSOD,or running extremely slow with a lot of artefacts on the screen,and all of it straight after launching any 3D application-no overheating involved.

Please help...
BTW,online warranty registration DID accept my serial No.

Answer:Satellite P855-31K cannot be found on support site

Product type > Notebook
Family > Satellite
Product series > Satellite P Series
Model > Satellite P855
Short Model No > PSPKBE

There you can find all drivers, tools and utilities for supported operating systems.

By the way: do you use original preinstalled OS that you got with your notebook?

I have Satellite L650-111 ( part number PSK1JE-00E00PY4) and when I try to access Toshiba support page for my computer
there is no success. Even if I try to use "detect your notebook" there is no success.

In whole Toshiba site(s) I could not find my notebook model.


I'm very disappointed whit this situation, even more because that I had Toshiba Satellite A80-129 and whole
set of drivers and support are listed.


disappointed user

Answer:Satellite L650-111 is not listed in Toshiba's support

There is no reason to be disappointed.
If you search drivers and for some reason detecting option doesn?t work properly there is also way to find all drivers manually.

You have Satellite L650 with model number PSK1JE. That?s all you need to know.
Please check it again and if you still have problem to find drivers I will explain you how to find them.

Hello I am from Portugal and a wont to know why the toshiba company dont recognize the Satellite A100-208 (PSAA2E-03V031PT)

When i go to the suport section, my serie dose not appear, there is a problem to this series?

I need to know the correct reference off Batery and memory to my equipment

Answer:Toshiba site does not recognize the Satellite A100-208 PSAA2E?


You are right; the Satellite A100-208 is not listed in the Options & Accessories site?
Why??? Who knows? maybe the data base must be updated?.

But don?t worry?. As you already said the Satellite A100-208 is a part of the PSAA2E series. I have found the A100-204 unit on the Options & Accessories site and it?s the same series like A100-208!!!

So choose the A100-204 from the list and you will get the compatible parts and accessories for your A100-208

Hi All,

I am doing a clean XP install on a Satellite M70. This page lists all the necessary drivers:

Unfortunately every zip file I download from that link is corrupt, when I try to open them I get the following error:

"The compressed (zipped) Folder is invalid or corrupted"

This is the case for every zip archive listed at the above link. The Intel display driver which comes as an exe is fine.
I have tried redownloading the files many times, from the NZ site too. I have tried the native XP zip tool, jzip, 7zip and winrar.
I have tried from Windows XP and 7 from both work and home. I'm pretty sure there is a problem with the archives themselves.

If there is anyone from Toshiba in here could they please have the files fixed or provide me with alternative links to them?


Answer:Satellite M70 - Driver archives on AU Toshiba site corrupt


Juts have downloaded 2 files form Australian driver page to check. Everything is fine, I can unpack the archive. Try to use winrar and disable Antivirus to check if it's blocking. Once, I had problem with Nod 32 antivirus, it was blocking archive files to unpack
