Additional package for Satellite A100-003

I have a Satellite A100-003 and I just installed vista 64-bit, which is the correct for toshiba value added package, because I get an error at the end of the installation. Thank you


First of all the buddy I wonder about your first message.
You said;
> I just installed vista 64-bit, which is the correct version for Toshiba package extra

I visited the Toshiba European page and I didn t find drivers for Vista 64 bit and VAP for Satellite A100 - 003 PSAARE.

Because of this, I DON T wonder that you receive error messages.
The error messages appear because you use wrong and NOT compatible software.

You have updated the BIOS?
OK, this grand but the BIOS is designed for Vista 32 bit and not 64 bit.
So it s no matter if the BIOS has been updated or not.

So he just said; Don t install the VAP for Vista 32 bit on 64 bit Vista version

Good bye

  • Can satellite A100-003 - I install Windows 7 32-bit or 64-bit?

    Hello everyone,

    I have the Satellite A100-003 and I've been running it with Windows XP since I it (triple). Now I want to install Windows 7 on it, however, I'm confused about what can I install on it.

    I have a few places on the Toshiba site, I found that I can install Windows 7 (32 and 64 bit), but I can met some problems with the BIOS, in other places, I tried but could not find the drivers for Windows 7 64 bit.

    So what is the case? My first goal is to install windows 7 64 bit, because I have 4 GB of RAM on my laptop, but even the 32 bit would be a better choice than XP right now.
    So I can install Windows 7 64 bit on my laptop?

    Thanks in advance for any answer!


    Important before installing another OS, you check the Toshiba driver download page. Satellite A100-003 belongs to the PSAARE series and is therefore not available for Windows 7 drivers. You can only get the drivers for Windows XP and Vista 32 bit.

    This means that you can try to install Windows 7 because Vista drivers most also work on Windows 7.
    If this isn't the case you find newer drivers yourself, maybe you can find something.

  • Satellite A100 - 003 PSAARE - information necessary Ram upgrade


    I have a Satellite A100-003 (PSAARE) with 32-bit Vista installed and 2 GB of RAM (1024 + 1024 DDR2 533 MHz).
    I was wondering if it is possible to change the 1 RAM (1024MB) with this RAM: 2 GB DDR2 667 MHz?
    Support page says that this laptop supports up to 4 GB of RAM total.

    Thank you in advance.


    Generally this information in the user manual it s always mentioned in the manual that is preinstalled on your laptop.

    I downloaded the manual on the Toshiba page and found this:
    Slots _Memory: _
    + PC4200 256 MB or 512 MB or 1024 MB modules of memory can be installed in the locations of two memory for a max memory 2048 MB system. +

    _Memory expansion; _
    Only the memory modules with the number of following parts can be installed:
    256 MB PA338QU - 1 M 25
    512 MB PA3412U - 1 M 51
    1 GB-PA3411U-1M1G

    By the way; the 32 bit OS Vista won't recognize the 4 GB of RAM due to the limitation of the 32-bit operating system. The 32-bit OS can handle max 3.2 GB.

  • Satellite A100 - 003 PSAARE - Ram upgrade question


    I have a Satellite A100-003 (PSAARE) Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit installed and 2 GB of RAM (1024 + 1024 DDR2 533 MHz).

    I want to improve my system with 2x2gb DDR2 667 MHz Ram.
    When I use 2x2gb Rams, my system recognizes them?
    Or he will recognize less than 4 GB?

    Is there a link between the ram and 32 bit OS?
    What are your suggestions?

    Thank you.

    > When I use 2x2gb Rams, my system recognizes them?
    > Or it will recognize less than 4 GB

    You use the 32-bit Windows System. This means that your Windows operating system can recognize 3.2 GB of RAM max. It's max possible RAM for 32-bit systems.

    But as far as I know that it takes in charge max 2 GB of RAM. Has been mentioned in the page manual user 22 and 33

  • My Fn key does not work on the Satellite A100-003


    I ' v I just A100-003 with Vista, but reinstall W - XP. What driver I have to get a Fn key work properly? Only Fn + F5 (switch to VGA output) works well. I can't adjust brightness disp., sound mute or touchpad switch. Where can I find a driver for Windows XP Home edition solve this problem?

    Satellite A100-003 is a part of the PSAARE series. I visited the page European driver of Toshiba, but I found only the acoustic silence, help them and the driver sound
    Other XP drivers are not available.

    You can try to download and install the tools (Touch Pad on / off Utility, Hotkey Utility)

  • Re: Satellite A100-003 - need of Windows Vista 64-bit drivers

    I want to upgrade my OS to Vista 64-bit, but I can't find it anywhere
    I want the functions to work such as media buttons (stop, play,... etc.)
    I got my cell phone as a gift from the Middle East, and now I'm having hard to upgrade

    This is the Satellite A100-003

    Any suggestions?

    If the European driver of Toshiba page doesn t provide the driver 64 bit Vista for this laptop, then you have some many other opportunities to visit some 3rd Web sites and collect only drivers to clean hands.

  • Satellite A100 - 003 WLAN (with WPA - PSK) connection timeout

    I have a laptop Satellite A100-003 with preinstalled in Windows Vista.
    When I try to connect to my router with WPA - PSK (TKIP) I have error:
    Wireless authentication failed because of a time-out.
    My laptop and the router configured properly! I installed the new drivers intel 3945ABG chip.
    WPA2-PSK and WEP are working very well.


    The same thing happened on my old laptop.
    I was not able to establish the WiFi connection for more than 1 min with WPA encryption.
    I downloaded the latest Atheros driver and updated everything.
    Everything works very well with WEP but not WPA.

    Then I disabled the option to clean Windows configuration and use the Atheros utility. Now everything works fine!
    I recommend using the Intel Proset utility and check all the possible settings!

  • Satellite A100-003: Question about RAM and recording model number

    Dear Sir/Madam,

    1. the first problem is that I bought the notebook of Toshiba Satellite A100-003 model. But when I tried to save the European web site of Toshiba with my serial number it says Satellite A100-011. I do not understand what it means that. But I do not know my phone model A100-003-PSAARE-0470257Z. The serial number of my laptop is: 17739127G

    2. Another problem is the European website of Toshiba and Turkey Toshiba official site ( says Rams are 533 MHz "2 048 (1, 024 + 1, 024) MB of RAM DDR2 (533 MHz)"but mine is at 266 MHz. "

    I was wondering in Toshiba laptops of the Turkey has problems or handed in state something? I sent e-mail to the web site of Toshiba Turkey but they don't send me emails or information.

    Thank you for helping me,


    First of all your registration number is not a 'problem '. Maybe it s just a small mistake in their database. When I registered my P200 registration reported me another type as mine was, but after a call to the hotline of toshiba told me, that my machine is listed correctly in the database.
    Don t worry, register just she.

    With regard to the RAM:

    Do you know why's called it 'DDR' ram? That means 'RAM memory' and the goal is to double the frontsidebus.

    In your case, that means: the REAL AND PHYSICAL frontsidebus is 266 Mhz, but because the flow is double you have a 533 MHz frontsidebus (532, 34.Mhz).
    CPU - Z and WCPUID are simply display the physical clock of the RAM, but the frontsidebus double the signal and then you pure and authentic to 533 MHZ.

    I hope I could explain something to you. ;)

    Have a nice weekend

  • Satellite A100 - 003 (PSAARE) - disk HARD help upgrade


    I have a Satellite A100-003 (PSAARE) Windows 7 Home Premium 32 - bit installed and 3 GB of RAM 667 MHz.
    I want to spend my hard drive. But I don't know which model is most suitable for my computer.

    There are two options: 7200 rpm or 5400 RPM HARD drive.
    What are the advantages and disadvantages of this type of hard drives?

    If I buy a 7200 RPM HARD drive, do I have a problem with the heat and noise?
    If you can give me some names of HARD drive model that you suggest, it will be better for me.

    Thank you.

    > There are two options: 7200 rpm or 5400 RPM HARD drive.
    > What are the advantages and disadvantages of this type of hard drives?
    The 7200 RPM drive is faster than the or 5400 RPM HARD drive. This allows read and write faster data on the HARD drive, but to be honest; in most cases, this difference is not noticeable

    > If I buy a 7200 RPM HARD drive, do I have a problem with the heat and noise?
    No, normally you should not get any problem the two type of HARD drive are compatible with laptops

    > If you can give me some names of HARD drive model that you suggest, it will be better for me.
    To be honest, you can use any HARD SATA 2.5 drive. The SATA controller is not limited to a capacity of HARD drive that you can take any disk of your choice

    According to the description of portable computer, you must be from Venezuela. Am I wrong? ;)

    I don't really know if Toshiba there is a support page for South America but a few guys out of here have had the same problem as you. I can't say for sure if you can use the update of the BIOS of the United States support site. I recommend you to call the partner of service authorized in your country. They work with this stuff and I'm sure they will be able to give you good info to 100%.

    When I asked the seller why my laptop doesen't have driver CD for his equipment, he told me that I shouldn't be this becouse download drivers on the internet is a peace of cake.

    Can I get some help here because I thing I do something wrong.

    The issue is that I can't find the product atall...
    looking forward for your reply because I need to address it quickly. It is for professional use.

    Thanks in advance...


    The Toshiba driver page offers drivers for Satellite A100 series and not for simple models like A100-784.
    Satellite A100-784 seems to be a part of the series PSAANE.
    Therefore, look for this number in the form of driver download!

    However, I checked this page of the Toshiba driver and found only a driver of sound for this camera!
    But not don t worry!
    The A100 series mainly come with the same hardware devices and drivers from other laptops A100 could be compatible and can run on your device.

    Take my advice and try to install the unique drivers of different Satellite A100 and Equium A100 series. This can help

    This sounds really weird. Are you sure to you´ve downloaded the correct drivers for your computer? What system do you have? XP or Vista?
    Maybe you´ve downloaded a version of Vista, and you have XP. It would be useful and enjoyable if say you what system you have.

    Alternatively, you can visit this site:
