Can satellite P500-12D - I use the nVidia drivers?

The latest NVIDIA drivers on update from Toshiba website are 8.15.11.8642, but there are newer versions on the NVIDIA site. I would like ot update the NVIDIA drivers but I have any difficalties.

I tried to install version 195.62 (Win7 64 bit) for the Geforce 200 M series fron the NVIDIA SITE but installation is not complete. I get the message: "Setup NVIDIA didn't find all the drivers that are compatible with your current hardware. The installation program will now stop. »

Toshiba only allows their own versions of the drivers? Is there a way to enable the NVIDIA drivers to istall?

Hello

Counter question: why you want to use any other display drivers? Are not satisfied with the drivers of Toshiba or can you notice problems in Windows?

Theoretically, it is possible to use the nVidia drivers directly but don t forget that they are not pre-tested on your laptop. Your graphics card could be overheating and so you lose the warranty.

Satellite P500 is fairly new, so I guess that Toshiba updates the display driver in next time too. Take a look at the page from time to time. ;)

  • Can satellite P300-20R - I use the latest drivers from site Web AMD/ATI?

    I got a Satellite P300-20R now I want to update the video card drivers - ATi HD4650.

    Can I use the latest Catalyst for the mobility card that I find on the AMD/ATi website, and what is the procedure?

    Toshiba drivers are tested and adapted for certain graphics cards. Driver Toshiba will not force the graphics card to run the highest level and therefore protect laptop from overheating.

    On my Satellite P300, I use Windows 7 32 bit and driver Toshiba. It runs stabile and I'm happy with it.

    To be honest I don t want to use ATI driver and unfortunately cannot give you an answer to your question.

  • Why Firefox 27.0.1 is so slow when I use the NVidia drivers?

  • Can satellite L300-1AQ - I use the L300D recovery disk?

    My son has a Satellite L300-1AQ equipped of vista. All of a sudden will load is more the laptop and automatic repair options fails too. There is a blue screen that appears, but only for a second when I try the repair option - then the laptop stops. We have no recovery disks.

    Also, I have a laptop Satellite L300D-13 s that works well and suppose I could get a drive recovery- but prob diff drivers etc.

    Can someone advise me how best to my sons laptop (Im not concerned about retrieving data as all saved already), but do not want to return to the factory settings including Vista. Do not know if using a laptop recovery disk is an option - instinctively is not as ever as simple as that.

    All advice welcome please.

    Hi mate,

    I can t imagine that the Satellite L300D recovery disc will work on Satellite L300. The hardware platform is different, because a single machine is equipped with Intel CPU and the other with AMD processor, so there's a big difference.

    In addition, in the worst case, it could be a hardware problem and in this case the recovery disk does not work

    What can you do now? I think you have to options: either you install Vista from a disk of Microsoft or order you a Toshiba Recovery disk: https://backupmedia.toshiba.eu/landing.aspx

    After installing the Microsoft disc, you can download all the drivers on the Toshiba site. Then you will also get back to factory settings, but it takes more time in the recovery disk because it contains an image which already all the drivers and tools are included/installed.

    I hope I could help a bit. :)

  • Can satellite L350 - 20G - I use the keys function for iTunes?

    I have a L350 - 20G.
    Is it possible to get the funcion of buttons at the top of the laptop (play/pause stop; back; before) to work with iTunes?

    Thank you

    Hello!

    As far as I know, you can only configure the first button that starts the application (iTunes).
    The other buttons you mean like play, stop and pause can t be configured. There is no tool to Toshiba for this available.

    I don't use iTunes, WinAmp you can configure the functionality of the button but I put t know if iTunes allows you to adapt these settings too.
    Try it and post your result. :)

  • Satellite A500-1GL: what are the essential drivers for Win7 64 bit

    Hello

    First of all, sorry for my English, I'm french :)

    Second, I'm going to buy this PC next month and I have the opportunity to buy it without a Windows license (I'm already a Windows license).
    So I'm lost to find the drivers on the download page, because there are several versions of drivers (for example drivers: Nvidia or Realtek Semiconductor Corporation)

    (Important drivers) drivers I need to download once to install Windows Seven 64-bit.

    Thirdly, I would like to know if it is possible to install display drivers downloaded from the Web of Nvidia site and not that of Toshiba?

    Thanks for your help :)

    Berillions

    Hello

    > So I'm lost to find the drivers on the download page, because there are several versions of drivers
    Satellite A500-1GL is a part of the PSAR9E series. If you need drivers then you must choose Satellite A500 PSAR9E

    > What (important drivers) drivers I need to download once to install Windows Seven 64-bit.
    Almost all of the drivers are important... the essential drivers are sound, lan, wlan, graphic card driver, touchpad, etc.
    VAP (value added package) and utility support memory card Flash are required for keys FN and buttons of media control

    > Thirdly, I would like to know if it is possible to install display drivers downloaded from the Web of Nvidia site and not that of Toshiba?
    Usually it s not recommended to use the drivers from nVidia or an ATI page because these drivers don't support drivers Toshiba overheating protection
    But if you want to use the nVidia drivers so that at you own risk

    Installation can be a bit harder running the exe file will not work because you will get a message that this driver is not allowed, but you can install all the drivers in Device Manager you can point to the driver files, stored on the HARD drive and this will allow to choose the nVidia Driver

  • Satellite P500-12D - a problem with the cooling system has been detected.

    Hi there everyone,

    I bought a Satellite P500-12D, which was a return of retail. When I start it up it runs a few minutes and then it appears on the screen:
    WARNING: A problem with the cooling system has been detected. Please, turn off computer immediately and return it for service.

    Follow the health of toshiba CPU is less than 50% temp and if it goes much higher that the cooling fan turns on and it lowers down and the fan stops again, I noticed that only the fan works r/h to cool the cpu, both should come together? What is a software problem?

    TThe unit is new without even the plastic off the surround screen or webcam. Any help or even point me in the right direction would be much appreciated, gary

    Hello

    Which program gives you this error message about the cooling system?

    Before contacting a service partner, as you can read in the error message, you must clean the cooling system using a jet of compressed air. Maybe dust blocking the fan or something else. Of more to clean up it of not necessary to disassemble.
    Here is an article on this topic: [how to clean a Toshiba laptop cooling system? | http://forums.computers.toshiba-europe.com/forums/ann.jspa?annID=40]

  • Re: Satellite P500-12F - cannot install the new nVidia display driver

    Good evening

    I'm sorry for stupid question, but I don't know what to do. I have the Satellite P500-12F.

    I tried to download the new graphics drivers for the NVidia card, I went to the site of NVidia and downloaded a new driver, which dates back to December 2009, instead of mine, which is July 2009, however, when I try to install it, the system indicates that Joana does no hardware that is compatible with the new driver.

    Could you tell me, what am I doing wrong? I could use any guidance as well. Thank you very much!

    Hello

    Why you try to use the nVidia display driver? These drivers are not pre-tested on the laptop and installation is at your own risk! In the worst case, you could destroy the graphics chip.

    As Akuma written already using the latest drivers Toshiba because they are pre-tested.

    Why you want to update the display driver? You are not satisfied?
    Remember: never change a running system! ;)

  • Satellite Pro A200GE and WXP - can I use the PSAE7 drivers or it won't work?

    The performance of Vista business makes me crazy, I need to go back to XP + sv pack 2.
    If I format my machine (A200GE) and install XP. can I use the drivers for the PSAE7? (or that the A200GE is PSAE7E this solution will not work?)

    Also do I need to contact microsoft to return to an earlier version of windows from my new vista Business edition? everything seems quite unclear.

    Thank you very much
    Dave

    Sorry, but A200GE is unclear to me. Can you please check the description of the model, and after the right.

    On the label located on the lower part you can see this number PAXXX. It is recommended to use the drivers listed for the model you own. WXP on laptops Vista is not optimized and best you can do is to only use the drivers for your laptop.

    Hello

    May I ask if you have checked the system requirements for Civilization 4 first? Before you try to play a game, you should check the system requirments. Is the laptop fast enough and very important: the graphics card is compatible with this game?
    Check this box!

    If you meet the system requirements make sure that the latest Toshiba display driver is installed. Don t use the driver from nVidia directly, it doesn t have a protection against overheating.

    And you have installed the latest version of DirectX?

  • Satellite P500-12D - keyboard backlight?

    Hi there recently bought by Satellite P500-12D and thought he had a backlit keyboard.

    I know that the touch screen on the left turns, but on all comments, images, and videos I've seen of this laptop keyboard has the function to be light from below with the same white color as the other witnesses on the laptop.

    Unfortunately, I do not know how to turn it on?
    So either I am wrong and it doesn't have a backlit keyboard or im just unable to find.

    Could someone tell me please how to activate this feature.
    Any help is very appreciated,

    Thank you.

    Hello

    Not all laptops the keyboard backlight feature supported.

    If your keyboard would support the backlight then you should see a tiny keyboard sign Z button.

    Then you may activate it using the FN + Z button.

    But if there is no keyboard icon and then the keyboard does not support the backlight.

  • Not possible to use the Nvidia GPU both graphics primary source all the time?

    I went through the manual and the tips of help from Lenovo and it seems that it is not possible to use the NVIDIA GeForce 840 M, 2 GB as the exclusive GPU card.

    The only control that I can find is one in the Panel of 3D graphics and if I read this correctly it assigns that Nvidia will be used when require it strong application processes (I'm guessing games play?) but for activities such as photo editing, it is up to the intel sur-bard chip

  • T430: Cannot change the GPU using the NVIDIA Control Panel

    Hello world

    I recently bought a T430 including a NVIDIA NVS 5400 M. games graphics card (for example, Max Payne 3) used to run fast, using the NVIDIA GPU. Today, I tried to play a video game once more (after having not played for several weeks). Unfortunately, my OS (Win7, 64-bit) assigns the GPU from Intel, resulting in a much lower speed. Using the NVIDIA Control Panel, I can't change my favorite GPU (changes will not be saved). I already run a update of Lenovo and installed the latest graphics driver (296.88), which resulted in no improvement.

    When you start a game, I can choose my graphics manually, but I would like to configure some general settings using the control panel.

    Do you have any solutions?

    Thank you very much.
