Preferred Solution: Cannot find Windows 10 serial key on Toshiba Satellite C50-C-1JL

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: Cannot find Windows 10 serial key on Toshiba Satellite C50-C-1JL

Windows 8 PCs now embed their product keys in the BIOS.

In the past, a new Windows PC would display its product key on a sticker, usually on the side of a desktop and on the base or the bottom of the battery compartment on a laptop. But with Windows 8, Microsoft has switched gears and now stores and encrypts the key in the BIOS instead.

Guess its the same for Win 10.

I've seen an HP laptop running Win 10 that doesn't have said sticker either.

Settings /Update & Security/Activation to display key onscreen.

I possess an A200 satellite laptop, and I am not able to find any driver for it on Toshiba site !!
- its serial number (X8172841K) is not recognized , the message is : "Sorry , your product cannot be found" [translated from French]
- the support site cannot detect my laptop model
- none of the drivers that I have downloaded (closest to A200) accept to install

Can u help me ?

S?bastien (France)

Answer:Re: Satellite Serial number not recognized by Toshiba support

If the serial number is not detected by ?Automatic detection? you can find drivers manually.

Maybe you have the same A200 as friend of mine. His notebook has part number PSAE6E.
To find right drivers please visit Toshiba download and support page under > Support & Downloads > Support Homepage and at the bottom you will find link ?Download drivers?.

Go there and choose your notebook model with right short model number.

If you need more help please let me know.

BTW: have you tried to find right drivers on Toshiba France support page?

I've been given a damaged Toshiba Satellite, I can not find a serial number or product number on it and it has what looks like a Hong Kong customs sticker on it, is there any way I can find some ID when I boot it up?

The screen is damaged and I don't know if all the Satellite screens are interchangable. It works on Vista i've tested it with external monitor, thanks

Answer:Satellite Pro L - Where can I find the serial number?


Normally on the bottom side of the notebook you can find a sticker with the serial number of the notebook, model number, etc.
Check this!!!

If not you can start TOSHIBA PC Diagnostic Tool to identify the serial number. It should be preinstalled on your computer.

You can get all spare parts from an authorized service provider in your country. Just contact the guys. ;)

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. I don't think my laptop is registered online and I don't have the paperwork that accompanied the laptop in its box.

Thanks for any help


Answer:Satellite L300-21F - Where can I find the serial number?

Odd issue. Toshiba website doesn't recognize my serial number. Has anyone encounted that? I assume alpha characters are upper case. Serial number is 9 characters long with alpha characters at either end of string.
Has anyone had problems registering their laptops?

Answer:Toshiba website doesn't recognize my serial number of Satellite A215-S7428

Wait a moment my friend. On which Toshiba website you try to do this? I hope you do not try to register non-European notebook model on European support page.

Am I right or you really try to do this? As far as I know you have an US notebook model.

The question is what you want to do exactly.
All info you need you get it on the Toshiba sticker at the bottom.

I can imagine you want to check download page. Your notebook model is listed there.
Go to Toshiba download page under and there you can find it.

I had to replace the hard disk drive in my notebook (Toshiba Satellite L50-C-,19P) windows 10. So when I try to put Windows back on my notebook it can't find the new hard drive. It says I need drivers for my hard disk drive. I can't find any on the Toshiba website and on other sites the ones don't work. Does anyone know where I could get the right drivers for my hard disk drive Toshiba MQ01ABD100?
If not, is it possible to buy another hard disk drive for which I can get some drivers? What kind of hdd could I use instead?

Hi everybody

I bought a laptop TOSHIBA Sattellite from a supermarket, but when I wanted to download the drivers from TOSHIBA official site, I did not find my pc in the list of drivers or in any page of the site, even with the automatic detection, knowing that reference of the laptop is TOSHIBA Satellite C55-A-19K.

Now I want to know is that normal, or am I a victim of an imitation product.

Answer:Cannot find my Satellite C55-A-19K on Toshiba page

As I can see this notebook model was delivered without preinstalled operating system so I presume you want to find drivers, tools and utilities on Toshiba download page -

Your notebook model is listed there but you must watch which criteria you must choose. As you can see you cannot search for C55-A-19K but for Satellite C55-A with part number PSCG8E.

Please check it again.

Hello everybody.
I've got an old fashioned 480 CDT here, used, but still works fine. Runs Win98 fine so far.

The Problem: The machine urgently needs re-installation, but I've got no disks for the Toshiba specific tools (i.e. HWSETUP etc.) which came originally with the laptop. (But a Win98 CD I do have!) Seems that they've been lost along its long way.

I didn't find a possibility to download these tools from the Toshiba support pages. Maybe I'm too blind so somebody can give me a link where to download the Toshiba Tools?

Where can I find these tools? (I did find the Archive section, but there these tools aren't listed :-(

Thanks in advance.


Answer:Where I could find Toshiba tools for my Satellite Pro 480 CDT


I looked on the toshiba sites after your problem and you could go to
in the menu Support & Download - Driver Download you could find a site to download drivers.

In the first drop down menu you have to choose ARCHIVE there is your laptop.

But there is only the Advanced Power Mode for W98 and BIOS update downloadable

it seems that the Satellite Pro 480 was only delievered with Win95.

It'll hope this will help you

I have a Toshiba Satellite U205-S5002. Yesterday when I attempted to start my laptop I received this error message: windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: \windows\system32\config\system

And something about pressing "r" from the recovery disk. Well, I booted from the only disk I received when I purchased the computer and there is no option for repair. The only options available are to return the laptop to "out of box" condition, or to erase the hard drive. In addition, every search I've done on this error message references a recovery console, yet I cannot seem to find one.

I have several very important documents that I did not back up. Also, this happened after I shut the laptop down and put it in my laptop backback (in a nylon zipped pocket) and wonder if it could have overheated? I'm dreading the possibility that my documents cannot be retrieved.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Specifically I need to know if and how I can get to the recovery console (I've tried F8 to no avail).

Please help...


Answer:Toshiba Satellite Can't Find Recovery Console

Hi, and welcome to TSF!

You need to borrow a Windows CD because the Toshiba recovery disk does not have the recovery console on it. This will allow you to run the recovery console.

I turned on my laptop running windows 8 and the backlight lit up but there was no display. I could hear it turning on and the indicator light came on. When connected to an external monitor, the display was just fine. I did some research, opened it up and disconnected and reconnected a few things (which I do often) and closed it back up. When I tried to turn it on this morning it was unresponsive. When connected to the ac adapter the charging light will turn on but the power button does not turn the laptop on. I desperately need this laptop for school, it's beyond it's warranty and I don't have the money to get it serviced. If I can find the source of the problem I'm open to replacing said part as long as it's not more expensive than sending it out to Toshiba.

I've since taken the entire thing apart. The only things connected are the motherboard and CPU, both of which I've taken out and cleaned (fan was gross but I digress). I'm handy enough to be able to put it back together correctly and I know the basic parts, but I was hoping that someone could walk me though some troubleshooting as I put it back together. Or if that's not how it's done, maybe someone can help me take it apart in the right order to isolate the problem part once I get it back together.

I have a client who got screwed by a dealer. That co. sold him QTY 3 of this:

for the price of $899 Each. They bought it in July.

Except their ver. is even worse, it's only dual core Celeron. The PC run so slow that they can't get anything done. So they are forced to buy 3 brand new real PC.

Now the old Acer junk PC has 3 activated license of Office 2013 Home and Business edition in it. Since these Acer PC are junk, I try to pull the serial no. off from the PC, and they can't find it. In fact, even if you go to those software website, they didn't mention Office 2013 on it.

Now that co. charged him an extra $225 x 3 per office 2013 license for those 3 junk PC. And so far, I have no way of pulling the serial no. out.

So I try to login to microsoft to activate office 2013, but he doesn't have an outlook / hotmail acct., and his personal email acct. can't login to microsoft.

Why doesn't these key finder software able to find Office 2013 serial no. and what can he do at this point?

Answer:How come serial no. finder software can't find Office 2013 serial no.?

Thread with a lot of answers, mostly pointing towards Belarc, with some comments that there might not be a product key at all if those installs of Office 2013 are linked to the Microsoft Account used to install them.

Hello all. I am very new here. By very new I mean this is my first time posting on a Tech forum. I very often search for answers and appears a lot with solutions to practically every question I can think of.
Today I am stumped and running short on time.

My colleague from work, who is quite poor with computers and setting up and stuff, so I told him I would help him by removing Vista from his system and installing windows XP.
I know that this day and age I should be upgrading him to Windows 7, but I dont have that CD.

What I have done is this:

Installed a Windows XP Professional for a DELL onto his Toshiba Satellite A100-033.
I already knew (thanks to forums) that I would need to install the drivers for many of the devices after Windows XP installed. Oh I should mention, When installing XP I deleted the partition that originally hosted Vista, and formatted the drive to NTSF (forgive me if the arconym isnt exactly correct).
After installing XP, I searched Device Manager for the yellow ? marks. I currently have 7 yellows:

Answer:Need to find Toshiba Satellite A100-033 drivers? Do they still exist?

If the PC you are working on was bought with Vista pre-installed on, then installing XP should be ok as far as the hardware is concerned.
You can try a program to automatically do the searching for you, but it's not always 100% correct, and you may be left with a few to find.
This one seems to work fairly well;
You will need the product key that was supplied with the installation disc, to activate windows.
You should be able to get the Video card driver from either Nvidia or AMD (or SIS), from the information in 'Device manager'. the 'update driver' option can work, but sometimes has been known to download an old version of the driver.

What is it with Toshiba? The part number is clearly printed on the label on the underside of the laptop but the corresponding part number appears nowhere on the Toshiba support pages.

If you are not able to recover the notebook using the HDD recovery, then you will have to recover the notebook using Recovery disk.
It seems that you didn?t create the disk in the past? right? Well, this was not a good idea?

However, the Satellite C650 is European notebook series. Right?
In such case you will need the Recovery disk for the European series and this can be ordered here:

This seems to be an Australian notebook series?
I?m not quite sure why it?s not listed on the Australian page but if you need the drivers then you can try to use the driver from the Toshiba European driver page as well?

There is an Satellite A500 PSAR9E series which is similar (or same???).
In my opinion the Win 7 drivers should work too.

I need massive help from anyone/everyone hehe.

I cannot find the program anywhere.
So could someone please find me a link that I can use to download it?

On the Toshiba European driver page in ARCHIVE area you can find BIOS and Utilities for this oldie.

Answer:Satellite L500 - Cannot find notebook model on Toshiba support page


Are you using the Tempro tool in order to register the notebook?
If yes, then you should update this tool to the latest version v3.33

Check this:
+Why does TEMPRO not accept my serial number as being valid?+

Otherwise the L500-158 belongs to the PSLJ3E series and all drivers can be found on the Toshiba European driver page:

I have a problem to find a driver for the multimedia keys (6 easy keys) on my Satellite A100-979. I have Windows Vista 64-bit and this Notebook should be vista capable. Can somebody help me? Maybe you have an idea, to solve this problem.

Of course it?s Vista capable. You have installed the Vista on the Satellite A100-979 and it runs.

You ask for drivers for Vista 64bit version? Well, unfortunately but there is nothing to do!
It should be common that Toshiba does not provide any 64bit drivers; neither for XP nor for Vista. :(

Hi Guys,I've totally reformatted my T61 due to being hit with malware/spyware that pretty much rendered my laptop useless.  This was the second time I've installed Windows using a legit XP disc I had for my desktop, but I used the serial number for that one and not the one on the recovery partition (which I've since wiped).The good news is that I have copied the recovery partition over to my USB drive and should have all of the tools needed to rip a DVD. All I really need to do is find out my WindowsXP serial number so I can input it and be done.  I don't want to bother with reformatting for a 3rd time (long story) since getting my laptop just over a month ago!  The current version I have is an OEM verison and appears to have restrictions on it with the number of times it can be installed.Anyone have any suggestions?  Will Lenovo have this on record?  I have a gut feeling that calling up Microsoft will be useless.Thanks!

Hello Support,

could anybody inform me were to find my serial number (for my operation system for windows 8.1) for my new Satellite Laptop. It?s nowhere to be found (under the laptop or anywhere on the package). This is needed if I ever decide to re-install windows 10 (full or upgrade) in the future. I don?t even understand why this serial isn?t available even if it?s probably OMD.

I?ll be grateful for some help or advice.



Answer:Satellite L70-B-126 Serial number for windows 8.1

Toshiba does not provide any serial keys for system activation.
The preinstalled system is part of the Toshiba image and its activate or will be activated during first internet connection.

You can and you should create the Toshiba Recovery medium using preinstalled software called Toshiba Recovery Medium creator.

This medium (disk or USB flash memory) allows you to set the notebook back to factory settings….

There is no windows license sticker on the back of the laptop or under the battery (only windows 8 logo), so I downloaded an app to retrieve the product key from the registry, but after reinstalling windows I tried to activate it, I discovered that the product key is invalid (tried the app on a different machine and it gave me a different product key than the one on the sticker).

is there any way I can re-activate windows without buying a new license ?.

Answer:Satellite L855-B511 - How to activate Windows OS - no serial key

Unfortunately there is no way to do this. In my opinion your issue is clearly warranty issue and service provider should exchange HDD for free. This model is pretty new so I presume warranty is still valid. You could say to service guys that recovery media creation didn?t work and ask if you can get recovery media for free.

If you want to fix it on your way you must order new recovery disc. This notebook model is offered on Middle East so I don't know if you can order it on but you can check it.

I had XP for half a year and now i need Vista but serial number is invalid.

Tried to contact Microsoft but they replied that i should contact laptops OEM (Toshiba) as windows were pre-installed.

Can anyone help me? maybe you know any email that I can try to contact with my issue?

Thanks in advance.

Hi mate

The windows serial number key which can be found at the bottom of the unit belongs to the preinstalled Windows OEM version!
It will NOT work with other Windows versions!!!!!

If you want to use another windows version then you have to purchase the Windows OS from Microsoft.

I don't change nothing in notebook since i bought, only i use once the recovery cd, but i have not a pirate key or something like that.

Why this different key?

Message was edited by: Admin

Answer:Re: Satellite A200: Question regarding the Windows Vista serial key

There's nothing wrong with your Windows Vista key. If I remember correctly the key is stored encrypted on your machine so another ID number is made to identify your Vista.

Everest or other tools won't expose your original Vista key. Maybe there are some tools, which can do that.
By the way, have you checked your key before using your recovery CD already, and didn't compare, so that's why you're in such a doubt your key might be wrong?

If the details in the PC Diagnostic Tool (Toshiba utilities) are incorrect, then the information needs to be updated by an Authorized Service Center.

Or it could be security software that is blocking the information. Try disabling/uninstalling your antivirus software.

This model (13J) is the government-sponsored student edition used by thousands of Greek pupils and is not listed in the Support downloads.

I made a new partition and installed XP SP3 Pro, in addition to the standard XP Home. I downloaded all the drivers for the model number printed on the sticker (PLL25E-00401WMG, which I assume corresponds to NB200-122 in the Driver Downloads).

Most of the important Toshiba utilities (Hardware Setup, Hotkey, Value Added Logical Device) terminate with the error "Wrong serial number".

Given that the Toshiba utilities work fine in the standard (old) installation,

1. Is there a way to bypass the serial number checking for the installation of Toshiba utilities?

2. Are there specific Toshiba downloads for NB200-13J ?

Answer:"Invalid serial number" when installing Toshiba utilities on NB200-13J

I did some reading since my previous post. It seems that in the 2nd XP installation the Toshiba utilities can't read the DMI information stored in the EEPROM, containing unit model and serial. This is evidenced by the fact that the Toshiba PC Diagnostics Utility reports "Unknown" for the serial, model etc.

Therefore a third question emerges, what is missing from the new XP installation that allows reading the DMI info? I guess I have to investigate all the services running in the original XP installation, but my bet is that the utilities that install these services are not publicly available.

The very same utilities install perfectly fine under Windows 7 (yes, I made another partition and installed Windows 7 there). This means that either Win7 has in-built tools reporting DMI information, or that the Toshiba 7 installers don't check for it.

Still hoping for some clues from the community.

Can some one help how to install it and what can be a problem?

Answer:Sat A200-1AE: Toshiba Hardware Utility - "the serial number is invalid"


From my knowledge this error message could appears due to different reasons.
First of all such error appears using an applications which was not designed especially for this notebook series.
The Satellite A200-1AE belongs to the PSAECE series. Did you download the tools and drivers for this series?

Please check this!

Secondly the ?invalid serial number? error appears if the wrong DMI information was stored on the system board.
This could happen for example if an technician has not updated the DMI after an motherboard replacement.

Last but not least it?s possible that you have no installed all the driver and applications in the right order.
You have to check the installation instruction txt file and should install the drivers in the order mentioned in this file.

Good luck

Back when Windows 7 came out, I shelled out the ~$700 to convert all the computers in my house to Windows 7. Ever since then I've had a friend considering buying Windows 7.

He recently took the plunge an invested in a copy of Ultimate (64-bit). I backed up his personal data, formatted and Installed a clean copy of Windows 7. On first boot I ran Windows Update (his hardware was all supported by Windows) and did the required restart. During the restart, the computer Blue-Screened, restarts automatically, entered startup repair the second time, "fixes it", and the cycle starts again.

So I figure "Okay, one of the updates is bad." I reformat and reinstall again, and the computer first-boots normally again. Just to test I restart the computer and the bsod/repair cycle starts again.

I finally gave up for the time being and just reinstall Vista 64-bit on their again and it works fine. His is the only computer I've had this happen to, and I've installed 7 on about 12 other computers so far. (No, I did not miss the irony) Does anybody have any suggestions?

My Toshiba Satellite M40 (canadian version) laptop showed a message of an error and completely froze up. I thought that this is a Windows XP problem and tried to reinstall windows. When I started installing windows it froze up again on the 35-38 minute of installation process, just before windows was supposed to boot. It tried several times after, and had the same problem. I also tried to install different versions of Windows, such as Server 2003 and Windows 2000, and got the same result. I even tried to install Linux Ubuntu, but it froze up during the installation process.

I replaced RAM and even hard drive, but this did not solve the problem. The diagnostic tools that I used also did not show any problems with the hardware.

What do you think is the problem?

Answer:Windows won't install any OS on Toshiba Satellite m40

Greetings, I am trying to update my Toshiba Satellite P50-C-11M through the Service Station, however an error occurs. Please note the laptop is roughly a week old only.

As I press install on the updates I get the following message: "The software update download operation failed. Reason: Retrieving the COM class factory for component with CLSID {4991D34B-80A1-4291-83B6-3328366B9097}.

I tried the following solutions and nothing worked:
1. Updated the BIOS Independently from the Toshiba Europe Website.
2. Uninstalled the Service Station and reinstalled it again.

Thank you, and I hope this helps others too.

I had been using Toshiba A30 for a pretty long time but I had some serious problems and contacted local Customer Support Dept... But I thought it's better to contact Toshiba Europe or Toshiba Worldwire regarding my concern...


Answer:Satellite A30 Should I contact Toshiba Europe or Toshiba Worldwide?


What a strange question?.
If you have some problems with you notebook you have to contact the authorized service provider in your country.
The technicians should help you.
But listen; if your notebook is out of warranty (and I think it is) you will have to pay for the reparation!!

But what?s a problem with you unit???

I just got my Toshiba Satellite L50-B-27N (PSKTQE) today.
Since I prefer Windows 7 over 8, I got my notebook without any OS so I can install Windows 7 on it.

Now I wanted to install the PC Health Monitor on my notebook, but the installation doesn't work, telling me always that Toshiba System Drivers are missing.

After doing some research, I can not find system drivers for Windows 7 64 bit only for Windows 8. Yet there is a Pc Health monitor for Windows 7 on the Driver page.

My question therefore is, where can I get system drivers for windows 7 64 bit so i can get this Pc health monitor running?

Answer:Satellite L50-B-27N - Toshiba System Drivers for Windows 7


Toshiba System Driver isn’t available for Win 7.
There is another software called Toshiba Value Added Package for Win 7.
This is required and must be installed

I have been having problems with my satellite laptop for the last six months. I have taken back to best buy twice. The problem at first was that it was getting really hot after about 40 minutes and giving me the blue screen of death. If I shut everything down and let it cool off I could restart it. The first time I took it to BBuy and the geeksquad, said there was nothing wrong with it even though it corrupted my windows. Time lost one week. Sent it back .They said it was dirty. Time lost one week. It worked for exactly two hours then the fan quite again. I had to use the system restore disc from toshiba to get windows back. It's still overheating and giving me the blue screen. Another tech (not from best buy) said it sounds like either the fan or the motherboard. I have to take it back to BBuy 2 more times before they will replace it meaning at least 2 more weeks lost time. Like a dummy I bought the three year warranty.Never again. I could have used that money to repair it right the first time.I'm learning. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.I don't have the paper that I wrote the blue screen specifics on here at work.I borrowed my moms computer for a couple days to see what I could figure out. Thanks
Okay, Here is alittle of what the blue screen says KERNAL___STACK___INPAGE___ERROR. STOP:0X00000077 (0X000000E,0X00000000,0X20882000)BEGINNING DUMP OF PHYSICAL MEMORY.

Hi everyone,
I own Satellite Pro M50, listed as discontinued model on Toshiba's official site - drivers and tools provided by Toshiba are only for XP, and several ones for Vista.

I installed Windows 7 32bit and I'm very pleased with speed of the computer now. Windows 7 was able to detect my devices (display, usb, wifi, lan) and updated drivers successfully. Everything seems to work OK by now.

Problem is with Toshiba tools.
MasterG (to whom I'm already very thankful, but I didn't find a way how to address him directly) has advised other user with older model (M100-221) to use VAP and Flash Card Support Utility for L500 series.
(for details : <a href="" target="_newWindow" class="jive-link-external"></a>)<br />
I tried it, and the Flash Card Support utility worked. Now I can use the Fn-key.

There are also some Toshiba features I would like to run: Power Saver, TouchPad utility, and so on. How could I find out which model has tools that could work as a substitute for my one or was it only coincidence that it worked?

Thanks a lot in advance, and greetings to whole toshiba community, I'm really delighted with this support forums.


Answer:Satellite Pro M50 - Comaptible Toshiba tools for WIndows 7

Hi bevo,

It?s nice to hear that you managed Windows 7 installation successful on your Satellite Pro M50 and you also like the forum as me. :)

What tools you want exactly?
There are some differences between XP and Windows 7 tools. For example Power Saver is already a part of Value Added Package and you can find the power saver settings in Windows Power Management of Windows.

The touchpad utility you can download from other notebooks. As far as I know Synaptics and Alps Electric driver should work on every model but you must test it, I don?t have Satellite Pro M50.

Furthermore such a list of compatible tools is not known to me. Just try it.
Important is that you install Windows 7 versions or at least for Vista. I think XP tools don?t work.

Good luck! :)
