Preferred Solution: Cannot find Toshiba Utilities for Satellite P300 Win 7 64bit

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 Toshiba Utilities for Satellite P300 Win 7 64bit


May I ask you why you are looking for this ?Toshiba Utilities??
Are some notebook features no available?

In my opinion you don?t need Toshiba Utilities if you are using Win 7.
I have installed Win 7 and everything what I needed, was the VAP (value added package).

This package contains some tools and utilities.
If you want to use FN keys, then you should install additionally Toshiba Flash Cards Utility? such utility is not released for all notebooks models? so try to install such tool released for example for; Toshiba Satellite L500

Hi guys

I have just removed Windows Vista from my Satellite P300 and installed a retail version of Windows 7 32 bit.

My question is now I have lost the Toshiba software on my laptop like the cd writer software and the web cam software and the toshiba Tempro, so just what do I need to download to get all the toshiba software that was on the computer before. Do I need the tempro software?

Hopw someone can give me some advice please

Answer:Satellite P300 - Where to find Toshiba tools?

Hi sam2149,

It?s no problem to get the Toshiba tools again. You don?t need TEMPRO to download all tools, just visit the Toshiba website and download all drivers and tools that you want: > Support & Downloads > Download Drivers

All available downloads for your model can be found here.

My Toshiba T110 netbook came with Windows 7 home, 64bit preinstalled.
I have some critical applications which will only run under the 32bit version so I have to downgrade.

I have ordered a 500Gb hard disc to install the 32 bit version (keeping the original disc for returning to 64bit if required in the future, since no installation discs were supplied, just a recovery partition). My expected difficulty will be adding the Toshiba specific programs for activating eco mode, switching WiFi and bluetooth via function keys etc. and sleep & charge etc.

Are the installation files for these programs available somewhere? and if so in 32bit versions?

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. :(

We are Italian dealers.

Our customer bought to us a Satellite Pro P300-20Q PSPCDE-01V003IT, he needs Windows XP 64 bits to work.

We can't find the drivers for these devices:
Audio Device On High Definition Audio Bus (Conexant)
Fingerprint Sensor (AuthenTec)
Mass Storage Controller (Unknown)
Modem Device On High Definition Audio Bus (Conexant)
For the audio and modem we already tried the driver for XP on the support site but not installed and report this error mmdriver.inf not found c:\windows\system32\, even if that file is right there.

For fingerprint sensor the package install just the software but not the driver 'cause missed the file: atswpdrv.sys. The file isn't in the package.

For Mass storage controller none of the files for this notebook match this device.

Also: The driver for XP for the touchpad alps electric in the support site doesn't work with XP 64 bits.
Some advice to solve these problems?

Thanks, hope to receive an answer soon 'cause is urgent.

Thank again.

Answer:Satellite Pro P300-20Q - I need XP 64bit drivers

Have you checked the Toshiba European driver download website?
Well, I think the case is clear. Toshiba doesn?t support Windows XP 64bit on all notebooks and on the Satellite Pro P300 it?s the same.
So I think that?s bad news for you.

The only solution is to search on external website or on the manufactures website of the device.
If you don?t get all drivers it?s time to install another OS.

Does anyone know why my Satellite P300-19P won't display 1,440 x 900 in win7 64bit.

It's highest display is 1360 x 768 which leaves a gap of about 1/2 inch at the top and bottom of my screen.

I had full res on XP but not on Win 7.
The drivers are up to date.

Anybody know why?

Answer:Satellite P300-19P won't display 1,440 x 900 in Win7 64bit.


I think it could be an setting issue in your ATI Catalyst or the graphic card driver does not contain the favorite resolution.

As far as I know the Satellite P300-19P belongs to the PSPCCE and has been delivered with a ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3470 graphic chip.

First of all I recommend checking Catalyst settings.
Go to ATI Catalyst (should be placed in control panel)

Choose Advanced setting -> Notebook Panel Properties -> Attributes
Here in Scaling Options choose ?Full Screen?

Can somebody explain me, why there's no sound driver for Windows XP *64 bit* version? I have Satellite P300 and there's driver for XP 32 bit, Vista 32 or 64 and also Windows7 32 or 64...

Many people on other forums I read have the same problem, no driver for XP 64 bit version...

Is it such a big deal to make it or what?

Answer:Satellite P300: Why there's no sound driver for Win XP 64bit?


>Is it such a big deal to make it or what?
First of all such question should be asked the sound chip manufacturer.
Secondly this is a user to user forum and you will not get any official statements from any companies here?

Of course we can talk why there are no many drivers for Win XP 64bit.
As you know, Win XP is past, nostalgia? Microsoft has decided to cut the support for this OS in the next years and Win 7 is the new king?

Furthermore the Win XP 64bit was not popular in the past, nobody needed this OS? everyone has used the 32bit version. Now everyone needs 64 bit version due to the 4GB RAM but the companies (no matter what company it is) didn?t realized that? every software, utilities or tools were released for Win XP 32bit and not for Win XP 64bit? I think this is the reason why the Win XP 64bit drivers are very, very rare?

I have just bought a new Toshiba Satellite P300 19K, PSPCCE, and started installing Windows XP Professional x64 bit.

I managed to install almost all the drivers except for the one for the audio.
After a day in the forums and Driver Downloading sites I managed to install the audio driver for it recommended here.

They worked as far as there are no more question marks in my Computer Manager, and there is the icon for the sound device, BUT there is still no sound.

Can anyone advice me on how to proceed with any additional settings, or if there are any other XP x64 drivers available?

Thank you in advance.

Answer:Satellite P300-19K PSPCCE - No sound using the Win XP 64bit

As far as I know Toshiba didn?t delivered a Notebook with XP 64 bit. So you don?t get drivers for it.
XP 64bit is not very popular, because there are many problems with drivers.

I think the Satellite P300 has the Conexant CX20561 soundchip. Are you sure that the driver supports this soundchip?

Do you have the same problem with an OS (operating system), where you can get all drivers from Toshiba (XP/Vista 32 bit)?

Which service pack do you have? Try it with SP2 or SP3.

Maybe it is something wrong with the driver or the settings. Is it set to mute or quiet?

I got a Toshiba Windows 7 upgrade for my P300 which was running Vista 32 bit. During the installation process I was asked whether I wanted to install 32 bit or 64 bit Windows 7 and I chose 32 bit. Install worked fine.

Now (a few moths later) I have decided I would like to install the 64 bit version instead. I did a clean (custom) install by booting from the DVD, but it did not give me the option this time and just re-installed Windows 7 32 bit. I know the 64 bit version is on the DVD (there is a folder for it) - how can I boot from the DVD and have it install 64 bit version?
I did not format the disk when doing the clean install - if I do this will it give me the option?


Answer:Satellite P300 - How to install Windows 7 64bit?

I have sorted this out. For future reference and people looking at this forum, I did format my drive, but the Windows 7 disk still automatically installed 32bit version. So, I held down the "0" key while powering on which starts up the install back to factory settings option. I chose to install Windows Vista 64 bit, which worked, then ran the Windows 7 upgrade again to upgrade to Windows 7. Only took 6 hours!

Answer:Need Windows XP 64bit Conexant HD driver for my Satellite P300

Obviously your notebook is not supported for WXP 64bit so you must try to find it on your own.
If I?m not wrong your notebook has Intel High Definition Audio (Azalia) on board Conexant CX20561 sound chip.

Use Google and try to find it.

Two days ago I got Satelitte P300-172 notebook.
It has 4 GB of ram so I decided to install 64 bit Vista.
On toshiba page there is no option to select 64 bit drivers.
Because of that I thought there are no drivers but that is not true.

Some of the Vista 32 bit drivers have 64 bit folder in them so they work on 64 bit vista.

The only thing in my device manager without proper driver is mass storage controler (vendor 1217, device 7130).
I think it belongs to "O2 Micro, Inc.|Integrated MS/xD Controller".

Anybody knows where to get the driver?

Another question:
What utility allows me to turn of led lights via mute button? I had it working on preinstalled home premium 32 bit.
Otherwise the mute button works. Only led on/off doesnt.

Thanks for help

Answer:Satellite P300-172: searching for 64bit Vista driver


I found a forum thread which could help you to get the internal cardreader working using the Vista 64bit OS.
One forum user posted a link to a 64bit Vista driver!

The +"mass storage controller device 7130"+ seems to be the internal card reader and therefore I believe that you could solve this issue installing the right driver.


By the way; I'm sure that the 64bit drivers will be released in the next time on the Toshiba European driver website

Answer:Need some Toshiba utilities for Satellite U500-1D8

Huh ... I am afraid you will be disappointed now but here is the truth:

# Your notebook model was delivered with 64bit operating system only so if you need Win7 drivers, tools and utilities you can download them from Toshiba support & download page but for 64bit OS ONLY.
# ?Toshiba recovery disc creator? cannot be downloaded. If you don't use original Toshiba recovery image there is no sense to have it. This creator is not designed to create recovery image for current state but so burn already created recovery image (data files) to CD/DVD media.
# Toshiba photo service is additional software you can use with ?factory settings? only and cannot be downloaded additionally.
# Microsoft office 2007 trial version is kind of ?present? for people who have decided to buy Toshiba notebooks and it is not offered as additional option. You can use it with ?factory settings? only. If you want to have this trial version then contact Microsoft and ask for download.
# Toshiba disk creator is also additional software and can be used with ?factory settings? only. No download.

If you have more questions let me know.

Maybe some single drivers would run on your Canadian model.
But note; you can try it but there is no guarantee that such drivers will function

1. No. as far as I know this is not possible but if you don't need this application just go to exit and stop it running in the background. You can start it again anytime you want.
2. You can disable this notification in RUN > MSCONFIG > Startup tab. I don't know how the right name is but you will find it there. Just remove check mark in front of it and this will never start again.
3. New notebook models are delivered without recovery DVD and you must make it alone. Toshiba has created small ?reminder? and this reminder should tell you ? Please don't forget to create this recovery DVD. So please do is using "Toshiba Recovery Disc Creator". This installations media you can use for further Vista installation. I recommend you to use DVD-R media only. TRORDCLauncher is Recovery Disc Creator Launcher . When the recovery DVD is created you can remove both applications from the system.
4. Yes you can remove them from the system. How? Control panel > Programs and Features > there is the list of all preinstalled software. Click on application you want to remove and click on the menu on option ?Uninstall?.

You can download some third part applications like ?Speed Fan?. Please note that thisr part applications are not tested and all info you see there must not be 100% right.

I managed to get windows 7 professional (64bit), windows update pretty much installed all the updates.
Without any problems, but there are a few things that it cannot find.
The hotkeys and mouse track pad drivers. I went onto the toshiba site, then downloaded and installed the value pack. All drivers worked fine, but I noticed the drivers provided by toshiba for the WiFi card has made it stick to 65mbps.

I left it for a few hours and the speeds did not fluctuate at all, when i did a system restore and used the original drivers found by windows update my WiFi connection was ranging between 117 mbps and 150mbps.
I dont want to use the toshiba value pack becuase it will ruin the wifi drivers, I tried updating the drivers but they wouldnt work.

Is there any way to have the drivers for the hot key functions and mouse/trackpad seperately?
I would like to use them, If not Toshiba admins can you split them from the value pack so I can install the 2 drivers.

Answer:VAP for Win7 64bit affects WLan speed - Satellite P300 PSPCCE


> Is there any way to have the drivers for the hot key functions and mouse/trackpad seperately?
I doubt this is possible?. The VAP is a package which contains different tools and utilities and the whole package cannot be slivered.

To be honest I?m not quite sure why the VAP should slow down the Wlan?.
But I?ve got a idea;

The VAP contains the Toshiba power saver. It enables some options in Vista power management.
For example there is an option ?Wireless Adapter Settings -> Power Saving Mode?
There are four power saving / performance settings. If your Wi-Fi connection is unstable or slow, try selecting a higher-performance setting.

You can also go to device manager -> Wlan card properties and there you could find some tabs.
In one tab called Advanced you could change the setting to get a higher speed.

Hello everyone,

I wasn't very clever of placing continiously my laptop on the floor, which lead to me stepping on it the other day and now I have a broken screen. It still works, but there are colored cracks..
I contacted Toshiba to check about the cost of such a repair and I was told that the price of the screen only will be more than 300? + the work and all will make it about 400?.
I also contacted a local computer shop and they said that a non genuine Toshiba screen will cost 160? + work.

My question here is: Can I by myself the screen on the internet and does it take any special skills to mount it on the laptop? I have just a bit more than basic skills in repairing elecronics and I suppose I will be able to change it, if it doesn't take any special skills or tools..
And as well, what screen should I buy? A genuine Toshiba one or a less expensive one also does its job?
The brand and the model of the laptop are: Toshiba Satellite P300 - 1G6 - 17"

I have a few questions regarding my Toshiba P200-17C but I'm not sure if I should be posting in the Satellite forum, the Operating system forum, or the Toshiba Tools & Utilities forum but, because my questions concern all three forums and as the questions are directly related to the tools & utilities, I feel that this may the the one to post in?

After installing Windows 7 RC 64bit, I installed just about all of the 64bit versions of the Toshiba software that are available for my P200-17C and apart from a few niggly issues, all of the Toshiba software and Windows 7 RC 64bit appear to be working just fine on my notebook.

Utilities installed: accoustic silencer, assist, chipset utility, config free, dvd player, decoder driver, flash cards support, flash media, hw setup, LAN, modem, SD utilities, sound, TEMPRO, Touchpad,* value added logical device*, webcam, wireless LAN.

The issues that I am having are as follows:

The six media buttons just above the keyboard which are the internet button, the CD/DVD button, the play/pause button, stop, fast rewind, fast forward.

Toshiba/Utilities/HW Setup

With reference to the first issue - media buttons - apart from the "Internet" and "CD/DVD" buttons, the other four buttons work when Windows Media Player is launched but I would like the internet and CD/DVD buttons to work. With the 64bit OS, be it Wista or Windows 7, Toshiba have a download called "Value Added Logical Device"... Read more

Answer:Satellite P200-17C - Windows 7 and Toshiba Tools & Utilities

Hello Dave

Until Windows 7 is still in Beta phase and not officially on the market Toshiba and, I believe, any other notebook manufacturer will not offer support for Windows 7.
I believe you that some tools or utilities work well but it is nothing but luck.

All tools and utilities must be prepared and tested for new operating system. When you download VAP there is must be chosen OS and you can download it for Vista only. So if some tool works is nice but if not there is nothing you can do. Just to wait, like me and many other people who have installed Windows 7 for testing purposes.

Windows 7 has been on the market for at least a year now. And I cannot believe, that there are only *4* drivers to download for a Windows 7 x 32 bit system (for 64bit System there are *145*). When one installs this system on U500 some of the drivers and almost all Toshiba Utilities are gone.. and there is no place, where you can download them from...
Can you , Support team,please do something about this question? A lot of people would be extremely grateful for that.

Kind regards

Answer:Satellite Pro U500-10N Drivers and Toshiba Utilities on Windows 7


If you want to discuss with support team than you must contact Toshiba hotline and explain the situation.
You are right. Win7 is long time on the market but it doesn?t mean that notebook manufacturers support both versions (32 and 64bit) for all notebook models.
Fact is that older notebook models delivered with Vista are supported for Win7 32bit but all newer notebooks like your U500 are mostly supported for 64bit version only.

Global trends in computing, mobile computing and software development go forward and it is important to have always better and faster systems. It is the reason why all notebook top sellers offer more and more platforms with 64bit OS only.

To be honest I don?t think Toshiba will offer 32bit support for U500.
I have U500-1EX with touch screen and use original OS that I got with.

Does anyone know the correct order in which they are installed or offer any help?

Answer:Installing Toshiba Utilities on Satellite A300 PSAGCA


You have to install the TOSHIBA Common Module
The Common Module software is necessary and should be installed at first.
In my case it worked properly on another Toshiba notebook!

PS: There is a BIOS especially for Win XP
Should use it if you running Win XP

As the sound of my computer sounds gets anoying to people around me I tend to use a headset.

After formating my system and installing Vista64, all seemed to work fine, except the display drivers I had to install manually, other drivers seem OK.

Audio in also working. But if I plugin the headset, nothing happens.

The sound should be in the headset, but it is still on the speakers. I googled the problem - no luck, I searched for 64-bit conexant drivers - no luck.

Help, please.

Hello Nejc

Sorry but you didn?t write which notebook model do you have exactly.
Is your notebook model supported for Vista 64-bit?

Do you use the right port on your P notebook? Be sure you use the right one. I believe it must be the first one from the right side.

Hello everybody,

I bought a Windows 7 upgrade to Toshiba.

And I have 2 DVD :
1 for the Toshiba upgrade and 1 for the Windows upgrade.

I have run the 2 first steps without problems.

But when I have run the 3rd step (which is the upgrade of the Toshiba tools), an error occured and I wanted to cancel thee process (I have even removed the CD from the CD reader) but the process kept running.

In conclusion the process went to the end but no tools are installed and when I want to run the CD again it acts as if all the tools are already installed and it doesn't run.

What can I do for the system to consider that the tools are not installed ?

Or where can I find another install program which will run the Toshiba tools on my system ?

Thank you very much.

This is a cut and paste of a previous post, but one which I am having a problem with today (saves me typing it out again!) :

When I start my laptop, it stops on he Toshiba leading innovation screen and only provides the option to do one of two things. This is what it says at the bottome of the page *"Press F2 to enter Setup, F12 to enter Multiboot Selection Menu"* I have tried both. I pressed F2, I've press F12 and neither one gets me pst the screen

- When I press either after the Toshiba screen is visible, they do nothing
- If I press the F2 during boot up, the instruction at the bottom of the page says "Please Wait". However, I waited for hours and nothing ever happened. The "please wait" message just sat there.
- If I press the F12 during boot up, the instruction at the bottom of the page says "Press F2 SETUP, Entering boot device selection menu....." Then it just sits there and does nothing
The Toshiba Leading Innovation screen remains the whole time.

I have tried removeing the battery and draining flea power - this does not resolve the issue.

When I restart the laptop, I get the situation as per line 1 above. No amount of tapping F8 does anything..I`m always back to the Toshiba leading Innovation page.

The fan is working but the HDD led never flickers.

Any suggestions please? Thanks

I need to make my recovery disc's for my Satellite P300 (PSPCCA-05V01Y) but the Toshiba Recovery Disc Creator isn't working, as it is saying that there isnt a HDD Recover file on the pc.
I tried before, and it had a problem with the core files, saying it was corrupt.
So I was wondering if there is anyway I can download the HDD Recovery installation so that I can install it and bring it back to the 'factory state' and reburn the recovery disc's?
Cheers for any help

Answer:Toshiba Recovery Disc Creator isn't working on my Satellite P300

Hello Mikey

The situation is pretty complicated. When you got your notebook the recovery files was saved on second partition in ?HDDRecovery? folder. The second partitions and saved files should not be changed.

If you have done something with second partition or this folder Toshiba recovery creator cannot find these files and recovery media cannot be created. This will works with ?factory settings? only. but I see one other problem there.
Theoretically, you can now install OS again using HDD recovery installation procedure, and with factory state you should be able to create DVD but if the Toshiba recovery creator cannot find the files I am afraid the HDD recovery installation can have the same problem.

If you want you can test it. Try to start HDD recovery installation.

Hi All,

I purchased Toshiba Satellite U500 laptop around 8 months ago which came with Home premium. now i am planing to upgrade it to Enterprise since i am using it for my office purpose and they have got the key for same.

from the Windows forum i see that there is no upgrade plan for windows 7 enterprise and i will have to do a clean install for this. i am ready for a clean install but how i can get all the Toshiba utilities like face detection, echo utility, recovery media creator etc. (the bundle of Toshiba utility which came with the laptop).

I am sure there should be a way for this and i would really appreciate any solution for the same.

Thank you.

Answer:Re: Satellite U500 - Win7 HP to Enterprise without loosing Toshiba utilities

Almost all Toshiba specific tools and utilities are offered on Toshiba download page -
Have you already checked this page to see what you can find there?

I presume you want to install 64bit version and all offered drivers, tools and utilities are the same that Toshiba has used for recovery image creation.

Of course some tools like ?Toshiba recovery media creator? is not ready for download. You don?t need this tool for your own installation. This tool is designed for original recovery DVD creation.
If you want to make own OS installation and configuration it has nothing to do with recovery DVD creation.

Please note: additional software like Nero, McAffe and other stuff you can find in original recovery image will not be available for download.

Hmm?. if the webcam is available on this notebook, then an right software should be installed as well.

Additionally you could visit the Toshiba European driver page and could download the Webcam driver for Win 7 64bit.
A Face Recognition software is available on the driver page too.

PS: It's very interesting to know if both applications would be available after new Recovery procedure. if you want you can try to recover teh notebook using HDD recovery procedure.

Hello everybody,

I have purchased a pre-order of Windows 7 Professional for my laptop and would like to upgrade it from Windows Vista Home Premium installed on it at the moment.

However, I just have one question :

- Do you think I will be able to upgrade from Windows Vista Home to Windows 7 Professional without a full install ?
- Else, if I have to perform a full install, then is it possible to install the Toshiba tools and utilities from the CD (I have not found anything to do this) ?

Many thanks in advance.


Answer:Satellite P100-488 - Installing Toshiba tools and utilities on Windows 7

Hi Fred

As I can see you have two questions. ;)

At first I must say that I don't believe anybody here will be able to offer exact answers but here is my opinion:

Q1 ? for OS installation I prefer full installation but I think you will be able to make Win7 upgrade. Problem is how the Toshiba tools and utilities will work after this upgrade. As far as I know in the past Toshiba has suggested removing some tools and utilities before upgrade installation starts.
So maybe you should think about full OS installation. I think it is better solution for you.

Q2 ? I the whole story I see one problem ? what if Toshiba will not offer Win7 support for your notebook model? Then you will have problem and just try to use Vista stuff in hope it will works with Win7 too. Anyway, in this forum you can find many postings where people confirm that most of Vista stuff runs well with Win7.

Good luck Fred.

I have a problem with my brand new Satellite L670D-103. To install my design sofware (AutoCAD_32bit), I had to install a 32bit OS. So, now I'm running under Windows7-32bit and my CAD software works fine, perfect.

I have googled but cant find anything useful, hopefully someone with more knowledge can help!


Answer:How I can find out what DC socket I need for a Satellite P300-1c9


You mean the socket which is mounted to motherboard?
Well buddy? the point is that in many cases the socket is soldered to the motherboard and it?s a part of the motherboard?
Because the DC socket could be a part of the motherboard, you will not be able to replace this but in such case the motherboard has to be replaced?

So now it?s important to know if such DC socket is soldered to mobo or not?
I think you should get in contact with an local ASP (authorized service provider) in your country? the guys could check the maintance manuals and could provide some information regarding the mobo?

I have a new Satellite P300-156 which I have been using for about a month with no problems. It has been great.

This morning I had a message come up to install Toshiba Tempo which I did and all was fine until I restarted the laptop and now Vista wont start.
I have followed all the diagnostic tools, tried system restore etc... but still nothing.

I currently live in Italy, so is hard to take it into a computer repair shop as I dont speak Italian and the operating system is in english.

From what I can see my only option now is to do the TOSHIBA HDD Recovery, but I would loose some data which I have done since my last backup. Is there any way to backup data to a usb storage device using command promts before I do this, or is there a simpler way out of this?

Any advice would be great.


Answer:Satellite P300-156: Vista wont start after installation of Toshiba Tempo


Well, this is really strange issue?

What you could do is to press the F8 button immediately after notebook starting.
This would enable a menu with ?Advanced Boot Options?.

There you could choose the option called ?Last known good configuration (advanced)?.

Please check this option. I this is your last opportunity to boot up the notebook and to start the Vista without using the Recovery CD.

Answer:Satellite P300-20R - Where can I find AHCI drivers?


Yes, for the Satellite P300 you need the AHCI drivers. This is necessary on every notebook that is equipped with a SATA HDD because otherwise the HDD will not be recognized from the OS.

The drivers you can find on the Toshiba website. It?s called Intel Storage Manager. => Support & Downloads => Download Drivers

Now you have two possibilities to integrate the drivers. You copy the drivers on an external FDD and load the drivers after booting from CD with F6. Or you use nLite to create your own installation disk with these drivers.
If you have more questions about this, please read the hundreds of threads here in the forum. This procedure is on every notebook the same.

My L500 wants me to update my CD creator and when I do the computer tells me that it can only be done on 64 bit OS.

Which it should be preinstalled from Toshiba.

Answer:Satellite L500 (PSLS3E) - Can't update Toshiba CD Creator on Win7 64bit

Hi cba1,

Is this update necessary or can you ignore this update message?
In my opinion updates only necessary if something doesn?t work properly?

I don?t use Toshiba CD creator because there are some good alternative (freeware) programs, like CD Burner XP. Have you ever heard of that?
If not it?s worth a try!!! ;)

I've got huge problem cuz i cant find driver for my a210-11b for any other operating system then 32-bit Vista.
I have few drivers for xp but not full pack drivers and my laptop is not working properly.

Does somebody can help me?

Answer:Satellite A210-11B: Can find XP 64bit drivers

The Toshiba 64bit drivers don?t exist; neither for XP or Vista.
At this time Toshiba doesn?t support such drivers? maybe in the future? who knows? ?:|

Anyway, if you need any 64bit drivers then you should search on the chip manufacturer websites.

Good luck

Hye !

I want to use my laptop (x200-20f) with Windows xp 64 bit.
I search the drivers for this laptop but don't find...

The drivers fox XP 32bit for the wireless, network are working!

I would like the drivers Nvidia for my laptop


Answer:Satellite X200-20F - Where to find XP 64bit drivers


XP 64bit drivers are not available for any of Toshiba notebooks models.
The XP 64bit was not so popular and most software parts and applications didn?t run with XP 64bit OS.

Anyway, back to the drivers?. As mentioned you will not find such drivers on the Toshiba page and therefore you will have to search on external websites.

I think you could find a graphic driver on the site.

But note; non Toshiba drivers are not tested and not certified by Toshiba and therefore you can use it ONLY at your OWN RISK!!!
So if something will go wrong due to the usage of non-Toshiba drivers the warranty will not cover anything!!!

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 A200-10W - Where to find Windows 7 64bit drivers?


I have checked the Toshiba page and the Satellite A200-10W belongs to the PSAECE series and therefore I could find only Vista 64bit drivers: > Support & Downloads > Download Drivers

Hello there!
I am from Greece so please excuse me for any syntax mistakes I may do.
My girlfriend has the Satellite A300 PSAJ4E but her hard disk got destroyed so I bought her a new one(WD Scorpion Black 500gb) and I downloaded from the MSDNAA the original Windows 7 to install them to the laptop.
The problem is that she doesn't have the drivers cd so I have to find them on the internet. The other problem is that on the official Toshiba support site there is nowhere to be found either the laptop or the drivers for it.
So please help me to find them. Or tell me if I can insert some other's Toshiba laptop drivers to it.
I am ready to format and everything and I do not have the drivers.
Thank you!

PS. I found this site but I am not sure if it is okay to download them from that site and also I do not know if I should because I will insert Windows 7 64bit.

Answer:Satellite A300 - Cannot find the drivers for Windows 7 64bit


For drivers download use Toshiba download page -

There you can find your notebook model and all drivers, tools and utilities for it.
Can you find it?

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

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.

> I don?t have recovery disk so i will be grateful if someone could send me a recovery for this notebook or just contact with me that we could talk about it.
You don?t have a recovery disk because you didn?t create it before you have formatted your HDD!!! So it was your mistake!

At this time you will not find any Vista 64bi drivers for this notebook model.
There are Vista 32bit and XP drivers but no Vista 64bit drivers.

But I presume Toshiba will publish it in the next time? hopefully?

However, you could try to test some Vista 64bit drivers which are released for other Toshiba models. Many notebooks series use the same devices and therefore also some single drivers could functions.

Last but not least you can search on chip manufacturer websites for 64bit drivers.

LAN driver can be found on Realtek page.
Wlan on Intel or this Toshiba WLan portal page
BT can be downloaded from here

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 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). 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 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...

Any ideas or suggestions?

Answer:Where to find Win XP 64bit Power Management/Saver for Satellite M305D-S4830


I think you will not find a 64bit version from Toshiba Power Saver.
Toshiba does not support XP 64bit so are no 64bit software available.

You must use the settings from Windows or you change to Vista 64bit. Vista has more options to save energy and it?s the same like Power Saver.
