Preferred Solution: Cannot find my Satellite L655-149 in Toshiba Middle east 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.)

Answer: Cannot find my Satellite L655-149 in Toshiba Middle east site


Why you can?t register your notebook now? Usually this can be done on this Toshiba support page:

Furthermore you can also register your notebook if you start TEMPRO. There is also an option to register your notebook.

Check this!!!

Dear Friends,

I have purchased a new model of Satellite (L755-M1E6) from Abu Dhabi.
But i could not see this particular model number in the UAE - Middle East website.
Normally we could see that the model number has the format - "L755 - 000".
that means after L755 - only three digits.

Here in my laptop it shows 4 digits, L755-M1E6.
support website shows model number as "PSK2YE-0E602UAR" as against serial number.

Can you please clear my doubt that, is it a original toshiba laptop? is it a discontinued model?
Or please help me to know its correct model number.

Please help me

Answer:Satellite L755-M1E6 - Cannot find this model on UAE - Middle East website


I am pretty sure this is a real Toshiba!
The model seems not to be an EMEA model though so it could be that it originates from another region of Toshiba - like Toshiba Asia.

Use your model number, the coplete PSK2YE-number you mentioned below along with the real serial which always is 9 charachters long ending with a letter (syntax 12345678A, X1234567A, 1X234567A or XY123456A - please understand that those are examples showing the syntax only - your letters and digits will be different!) and look them up here:

Link: []

If you enter the proper information there you should be able to look up your PC.

Good luck

Answer:Satellite A50-109 - Can't find drivers on the Toshiba site

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 received a Toshiba Satellite L655 laptop in May as a gift and I have loved the laptop. But yesterday while just checking email and doing my daily things, it just completely shut down. I have not been able to get the laptop to turn back on. By that I mean than pressing the button does nothing. I don't here the fan or anything.
I am almost 100% positive the motherboard broke. How, I am not sure, possibly from overheating. Anyways, if that's the case then I need to buy a new motherboard. But before I go and spend a lot of money, are there anythings I can try to get this computer to start up again? Also, I can't seem to find what motherboard is in the laptop. Does anybody know?

Note: When the battery and power cord are in the laptop, the DC-in and power cord lights are white, but if I remove the power cord, both lights go off.

Need acpi driver for Satellite L655-1GF and Windows 7 64bit


Answer:Re: Toshiba Satellite L655-1gf ACPI driver

You need to install all the L655 drivers from the Toshiba website to resolve the unresolved devices. The Intel Chipset and Value Added Package are the most important.

It may be easier just to run Recovery to install the factory image. Everything is already installed including various hotfixes, and you can simply uninstall anything you don't want such as the Antivirus.

Okay people, I didn't know where to post that but since I'm not too familiar with laptops, I decided to post here.

I just recently got my new laptop, it's my first one, I really like it. You can see the model on the title. I've been noticing a few stuff on it that didn't really attract my attention until now.. The screen goes a bit like snow effect, it doesn't really ruin the image and it's not too obvious to see but if you focus closer on it, you can pretty much tell that it does that effect.. I don't like it at all.. I'm not sure though it's the Windows 7 that causes that, I plugged my 42" Plasma on my laptop and everything was fine.. Is it a problematic hardwear thing? Can I do anything about it?

Thanks for taking some time to read this, I really like my laptop but I'm a perfectionist, everytime I buy something, it turns out to do something that I'm not really keen of. Looking forward to your replies.

- Wael.

Answer:Toshiba Satellite L655 1GJ (Snow Effect?)

I would contact Toshiba unless you've made some significant changes to the computer (drivers, programs). A new laptop should not have any problems.

upon turning on the laptop the screen will turn white if you hold around the frame in certain areas it will sometimes work but then if the monitor if it is bumped or moved it will go back white....I'm wondering if it is a loose cable issue or something else. Can someone please advise me on this?

Answer:my toshiba satellite l655 laptop screen is all white

You could check the cable connector at the screen end but from what you've said most likely it is a screen fault. The connector at either end of the cable can give issues, as can the cable itself. Mostly the cable goes bad around where it hinges and often when you move the lid down to nearly closed you see the picture come and go or flicker.Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Hi there,

I have a Toshiba Satellite L655 with Windows Home Premium 64bit. I have recently got into problems with my operating system. Unfortunately I did not know about HDD recovery option, so I just reinstalled OS with Windows 7 installation CD (i've got one).

Now I'm aware about HDD Recovery and I'd like to get my system back to it's original "Toshiba's" state, but there's no "Toshiba HDD recovery " item anymore in recovery menu (F8 on startup)

I still have HDDRecovery folder on my D:\ disk with 7.5 Gb od data. But how can I get it back? What do I need to install to have the "Toshiba recovery" item back again in recovery environment?


Answer:Satellite L655 - Get the Toshiba recovery option back

Hi buddy,

The Toshiba HDD recovery feature is only available on preinstalled operating system. If you have installed another version it?s not available anymore.

So in your case you would need the Toshiba recovery disk to restore the original factory settings. Did you create the Toshiba recovery disk before installing Windows 7?
Usually this can be done with out of box settings because ?Toshiba recovery media creator? is preinstalled. That means you need some blank disks to create the recovery disk.

If you don?t have the recovery disk you can order a new one here:

To start, I left my laptop off for two days while away on vacation. I return home and attempt to load it and receive the windows error message:
"Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause."
I am left with 2 options:
1. to boot start windows boot manager
2. to load windows normally

When I try option 1, at the bottom of screen there's a bar that says loading windows file and then the screen goes to a black screen with an arrow, never to load--even after a substantial amount of time (hours)
When I try option 2, it goes to the windows logo screen for a couple of minutes and then returns to the error message screen.

I have a Toshiba Satellite L655-S115
Windows 7 64 bit
My 1 year warranty on the laptop just ended, less than a month ago and when contacting Toshiba they note this. Upon a 2 minute conversation I was told that the harddrive crashed and needs to be replaced as well as windows OS ($200).
I just don't understand what could have happened because prior to leaving for vacation, windows was functioning no problem.
My laptop is not making any weird sounds. I just want to be sure their solution is necessary or is there any other solutions I could try before dishing out $200+ for this $600 computer. Also know any strategies getting around out of date warranty when right outside, within weeks of the warranty period.

Answer:Windows failed to start - Toshiba Satellite L655

I don't know if you got this settled, but it sounds like the hard drive might be okay if you can re-format and re-load Windows fresh

Good day,
I have a problem with finding "support for my notebook". Either from TEMPRO link or www page.

Cant find even *Model type L655* on this web:
so i cant even find my 11Z version.

This makes my driver download very very hard.

Don't know, if this is problem only on the czech site, or if i should contact someone else.

Thanks for reply

Answer:Re: Can't find my Satellite L655-11Z on Support portal

Driver search on Toshiba support page is pretty easy.
If auto search option doesn?t work you can find it manually.

At first have a look at bottom side of your notebook. There you can find Toshiba sticker with notebook model name, model number and serial number. What you need is model number. For Satellite L655-11Z should be PSK1JE. Can you confirm this?

So just go to Toshiba drivers download page under > Support & Downloads > Support Homepage > at the bottom you can find link ?Drivers download?.
Visit please this download area and choose manually your notebook model. As short model number choose PSK1JE. Choose supported operating system and you will find all available drivers.

I am new to this site. I am posting here because today I started up peerblock immediately after logging into my computer and found that my computer was attempting to initiate connections to a strange IP in the middle east.
Here is a picture:

I am concerned that I may have some kind of malicious backdoor installed and beaconing out somehow. I just refreshed my Windows 8.1 install and then upgraded to the Windows 10 tech preview about a week ago. This new OS likely still has some big security holes due to the lack of maturity and testing, but I do not go to any new websites or install any strange software. I cannot imagine how someone could have subjected me to a remote exploit through my firewall either. Malware scans seem to come up clean. Running a whois lookup on that IP displays that it is located in Azerbaijan. The protocol is UDP though so it cannot actually initiate a real connection to the foreign host without using some kind of UDP magic. My firewall is stateful.
If anyone has any advice on even how to capture which program is sending this traffic out I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks.

The notorious IM Rootkit, so hot they covered it twice in two days on Slashdot. Ye Gods.And, after further investigation on the AIM rootkit story, we are fairly confident we have located the group behind this thing and have turned the information over to the FBI and other federal agencies.What is scary here, is the potential for mass damage that we have seen through monitoring this group (based in the Middle East) nearly 24/7. They are slowly but surely building one of those huge botnets we all know and love, spread across the globe and it seems the lockx rootkit was simply the beach-head - the first wave. Naturally, we can only speculate and often researchers have to do just that - a good researcher knows their enemy, and follows a hunch when little evidence is on the table. They spread the lockx rootkit via IM, hidden in with a big pile of advertising software. As I predicted at the time, the Adware stuff was likely just a decoy, to distract from the rootkit that came in the package.Over 17,000 users were found to be compromised on a single server, and we found lots of those worldwide.

About two months ago, I noticed that I was having issues searching some words on google using the chrome browser, but didn't put it together until now.

When I try to google words related to the middle east, my chrome browser freezes and then it asks me to kill the page.

And my CPU goes up substantially, up to 100%, according to my activity monitor (not sure if this means anything).

Relevance 71.75% experts have discovered a new data-stealing virus dubbed "Flame" they say has lurked inside thousands of computers across the Middle East for as long as five years as part of a sophisticated cyber warfare campaign.It is the most complex piece of malicious software discovered to date, said Kaspersky Lab security senior researcher Roel Schouwenberg, whose company discovered the virus. The results of the Lab's work were made available on Monday. Schouwenberg said he did not know who built Flame.snipResearchers at Kaspersky said they were only starting to understand how Flame works because it is so complex. The full significance will not be known until other cyber security firms obtain samples of Flame. The Lab's research shows the largest number of infected machines are in Iran, followed by the Israel/Palestine region, then Sudan and Syria.The virus contains about 20 times as much code as Stuxnet, which attacked an Iranian uranium enrichment facility, causing centrifuges to fail. It has about 100 times as much code as a typical virus designed to steal financial information, Schouwenberg said.More @ link

He noted that there are clues that the malware may actually date back to as early as 2007, around the same time period when Stuxnet and DuQu are believed to have been created. Gostev says that because of its size and complexity, complete analysis of the code may take years.The researchers say they don't know yet how an initial infection of Flame occurs on a machine before it starts spreading.

After several days of trying all the drivers on the Tosh Europe site and getting errors, I found the latest A30 Satellite drivers for XP on the Tosh Canada site.

Answer:Satellite A30 latest XP Drivers - found on Toshiba Canada Site

Hello Nigel

Yes, this page is very useful. I don?t know in which country you live but many drivers can also be finding on US Toshiba page under .

Is your unit European or Canadian one?

I had to format my laptop last night due to a nasty virus.
I have re-installed vista using the recovery cd and have installed all the windows updates that were available.

What about the updates that come from Toshiba? Are they downloaded as part of the windows update or do i have to download them seperately from the Toshiba support pages?

Also how do i know which ones are most important?

Answer:Satellite P200-1EE: What to do with updated Toshiba tools on driver site


Does the notebook run trouble free after the installation from Recovery disk?
If yes, you don?t need to update any tools!

Follow my suggestion; never change a running system!

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?

Answer:Satellite P100-221: nVidia driver from Toshiba site doesn't work


On the Toshiba driver page you will find several P100 models.
As far as I know Satellite P100-221 is a PSPA6E-xxxxx model.
You have to choose the right notebook and then the right driver!!!
I don?t know which OS you use but on the site you will find XP and XP MCE

Therefore be sure that you use the correct driver.

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.

Answer:Need drivers for Satellite A80 - cant find on site!


You will find the Satellite A80 on the Toshiba European driver page.
But you don?t have to search in Notebook area but in Archive because the A80 belongs to a older notebook series.

You have to choose in Product type (the first option) Achieve.

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

But on the Toshiba support website, If I enter its serial nr then it doesent get recognised. If I insted use the little software that are suppose to identify you computer model, that too fails to recognise my model. And last I tried to manually enter my model. I choose Satellite, L300D and then the closest I can choose is L300D-13J, but mine is L300D-13X, Should I choose the L300D-13J anyway?

Hi Qwerty,

I cannot find the Windows 10 product Key on my Toshiba Notebook. Where is the sticker? On my notebook or elsewhere? Thank you for your answers in advance

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.

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).

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 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 all, The DVD-RW drive in our Toshiba L655d-S5159 seems to have gone caput. We have only had it a year but it does get used alot.
It will only read some of our dvds now , other DVD's it refuses to even recognize the format or says media is unreadable even though there is no visible damage to the disk. I have run malwarebytes,superantispyware, ccleaner,spybot s&d, avast, microsoft online seurity scanner, and hijackthis with no results other than spyware.
Device manager says it is working fine. I uninstalled from device manager and rebooted. Same thing. Could not find updated drivers for it.
Microsoft Fixit say media is unreadable or unknown format but the disk plays fine in our other Toshiba L505. Some movies start right up in VLC other dvds cannot be read. Some of our burnt movie backups work great while the original dvd cant even be "read" It burns just fine and every cd we put in so far reads fine. Dont think it is codecs issue cause an older original StarWars DVD wont read at all in it. If a game is put in it can read it but the autorun does not start up.I check autoplay and it says to load game or for DVDs play with VLC.
I edited the registry to get rid of the filters(there was only an upper) this did not really help. When any disk is inserted the drive really thinks long and hard about it all this leading me to the conclusion that we need a new disk drive.
Toshiba has been remarkably unhelpful saying our warranty expired 3 weeks ago.

Answer:Advice on replacing Toshiba L655 laptop DVD burner

The Optical drive is held in by one screw, usually located under a bottom cover. Open the tray and when you remove that screw, just pull the drive out. There should be a part number on the drive label. Use this number to locate a replacement drive. The drive's plastic bezel can be removed and placed on the replacement drive, so you can purchase a much cheaper drive that doesn't have a bezel installed. EBay is a good source

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.

This is an fyi for Toshiba Laptop users that may encounter problems in uninstalling the recent Windows update KB2982791 that was deployed on the last "patch" Tuesday 08/12/14 .
According to earlier MS published statements, update KB2982791 can be problematic.  There's a thread here with detailed information on that issue.
Today, MS began distributing a replacement update KB2993651 . 
One of my Win 7x64 PC's, my Desktop PC (component-built, Asus MoBo)  downloaded the update.  I went ahead and followed MS's advice* to uninstall the previous KB2982791 update, even though there had been no problems seen with that update, before installing the new update KB2993651 .
All appears to have gone well with my Desktop PC.  I uninstalled KB2982791 and installed the new replacement KB2993651 .
I tried the same steps on my Toshiba Laptop L655 (Win 7x64) and ran into the "Preparing to Configure Windows.  Do not turn off the computer"  hanging screen.  I allowed it to sit for about 30 minutes but the HDD activity LED was hung.

Please help..

p.s. sorry for my bad English..

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:

Hi there,

I bought my laptop 3 weeks ago, model: Toshiba Satellite A500 PSAR9A- 02s001
I bought it in Australia but i cannot find any driver support on

Any help?

Answer:Cannot find my model Satellite A500 PSAR9A-02s001 on Toshiba website


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 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.

Answer:Satellite A100-979: Cannot find Vista 64bit driver for Toshiba buttons

>this Notebook should be vista capable

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. :(

Best regards

Hi all there

I have a Satellite L655-14D with 3GB RAM and 1GB dedicated video RAM the problem in facing is that the RAM used up even when the computer is left idle with no programs running in back ground is around 65-70% of the total RAM is it normal to be like this? please help


Answer:Satellite L655-14D - Lot of RAM will be used

Have you checked what programs are running in background ? In "Task Manager" you can see ( if you are using Windows OS ) how many every process uses of your memory. Check that and reply again. You can open Task Manager by pressin CTRL + SHIFT + ESC ( or CTRL + ALT + DELETE ). And i don't think it's normal that in idle state your computer uses so much RAM only if you are working with virtual machines.

laptop starts after about 2 minutes window pops up, laptop is over heating (blah blah) turn off immediately and take to a service centre.

Any ideas, is this the fan or other parts, is it hard to fix? And is it expensive?

Answer:Satellite L655-16E overheats

I don't know which notebook model do you have and how old it is. It is not easy to say something but maybe you should just clean it up.
If the cooling vents and cooling grill is full of duct it can happen that notebook reach critical temperature in few minutes and simply switch off.
Cleaning notebook should be your first step before you contact service and check what can be done about it.

My satellite L655 is not charging at all BUT it works fine when i charge the battery from my second toshiba laptop
also doesnt open when i plug in just the charger without the battery(no led sighns-no power at all)

charger works fine
battery works fine
tested on my other toshiba

It works only when i plug a ready charged battery.

Any help guys ??

Answer:Satellite L655 is not charging

> It works only when i plug a ready charged battery.

So it looks like there is a problem with power supply electronic.
I mean the notebook does not work even if plugged to the mains.
This is definitely an problem since any notebook would work without plugged battery but connected to the mains power.

Therefore I think there is a problem with electronic which is part of the main board.

The model Satellite L655-1D2 a sound very silent, all has checked up fire wood. If to adjust Audi smart starts to rattle at a sound of 100 %. Compared to the laptop of the friend Satellite U300-13M , at it shouts as abnormal and doesn't rattle.

Prompt please it it is normal for the given model or something needs to be adjusted, updated or added?
Thankful in advance for the answer.

P.S..: I from Moscow, apologize for the English.

Answer:Satellite L655-1D2 - Low sound

Hi buddy,

Well, first of all: Different notebooks have different sound cards and speakers so you shouldn?t compare it to other models.
As far as I know Satellite L series isn?t equipped with high quality a Harman/kardon speaker, that?s the first important point?

Next question is when you notice this low sound volume. Is it when you watch a video or with MP3s? What media player you are using?

I can recommend VLC media player. I use this player for years now and it?s great freeware tool and it allows you to set the volume on high level.

Check this!!!

I recently bought a Satellite L655 with windows7 operating system. when i insert a DVD, it is not recognized as a DVD but rather a CD... and also not autoplayed for that reason.

I checked the device drivers and there is no "yellow flag" and seems ok... but when i open "my computer" icon, the optical disk is not listed in removable drives as a DVD RW but rather "CD Driver" label exists. i thought that the DVD player driver is not installed and tried to find a driver for DVD RW but couldn't find it. Then i removed the CD driver from the device drivers, restart the system and a CD driver is automatically installed immediately. but still no DVD is recognised.

Toshiba Tempro program does not recommend any missing driver. What should i do?

To be honest I don?t understand your problem. As far as I know cooling fan is controlled automatically so it runs if necessary.

I am looking to replace my lcd screen because it's broken. The model Satellite L655-128. Can any screen of model satellite L655 fit in my model or it is specific for Satellite L655-128.

Thanks for any help

Answer:Need new LCD display for my Satellite L655-128

As far s I know all Satellite L655 must have the same display. Toshiba offers 4 different platforms for Satellite L655 but the difference is in mostly in available ports, different WLAN cards and other components but the display should be the same so if you order LCD for Satellite L665 you should get the right one.

It must be 15.6"(HD) LCD with 1366 x 768 resolution.
I just hope you will offer it by authorized dealer.

Hey everyone,

my 4 year old Satellite L655 1g6 recently had some problems and the hard drive has to be replaced.
Does anyone know about a cheap substitute which doesn't have to be Toshiba necessarily?

I don't want to get an SSD hard drive, since that laptop is pretty old already and the cost for the ssd wouldn't amortize within the next years.
Would be very thankful to hear some opinions/suggestions :)

- Thanks in advance

Answer:Need compatible HDD for my Satellite L655-1G6

Generally speaking what you need is 2,5? HDD with SATA connector and such HDDs you can find in every computer shop. Pick up some info about offered models, capacity and prices so you can make decision which one you want to buy.
>I don't want to get an SSD hard drive, since that laptop is pretty old already and the cost for the ssd wouldn't amortize within the next years.
In my opinion it is wrong opinion. Using SSD you will increase notebook?s performance rapidly and have very fast machine. One day if you don't want to use this laptop you can remove SSD and put old HDD inside. SSD can be used on new machine.
For me it is the best solution for you.

Last year I?ve upgraded my 4 years old P500 with SSD and I?m very happy with it. The price was 149 Euros only. It is OK price. HDD exchange is not complicated and you can do it alone.

How to use the recovery of my Toshiba satellite l 655?

Is there any topic explain that

Answer:How to use the recovery on Satellite L655

I assume you are speaking about the Windows 7 which are preinstalled on the Satellite L655.
Am I right?

In case you did not change anything on this default system, the HDD recovery should be possible.
In such case I recommend you checking this doc:
[How to recover a Toshiba notebook with the HDD recovery procedure (Win 7)|]

You can also use the Toshiba Recovery disk to recover the notebook.
The recovery disk could be created using the Toshiba Recovery Media Creator software which is always preinstalled.

PS: all this details are mentioned in user manual as well in different threads here in the forum!

Hi, can anyone help me with this problem
My Satellite L655-1DT crashes sometimes when starting windows 7, BSOD lasts for one second and then restarts.
After restart it runs startup repair and after that it boots and doesn't crash.
Windows then displays following message:

Thanks for any help.

Answer:My Satellite L655-1DT sometimes has BSOD


To be honest it?s not easy to say something about bluescreen and I think such additional information like BCCode are only useful for Microsoft.
Here it?s user to user forum only?

Did you change something on hardware configuration or updated driver?

If it?s a software or driver problem recovery installation would help you to get rid of this. You should try it ;)
