Connectivity with Satellite Pro A200
I recently bought a Satellite Pro A200 (Nov 07).
The OS is Vista Business and the Atheros AR5007EG WIRELESS network card. Until recently, everything was fine but now I can't access the interent and although the network and the wireless router is detected, I have no wireless connection. If I use a cable via the ethernet port, everything works fine. I also have other computers that are picking up the network
Can anyone help
I found a very interesting Blog on the "problems of Vista and wireless", so if you want to solve your problems, simply click on the following link and check the instructions:
Should help, some of these steps, I already did on my Satellite A100 with Vista Home Premium and Atheros AR5005.
See you soon
My apologies if I get some of the jargon wrong, but I'm pretty useless when you want IT emits.
I have a Satellite Pro A200 and had problems connecting to various wifi connections.
The computer could see the wifi connection and connect to it, but I wasn't able to connect to the internet.
The question of the Office was arranged by our IT support guy (security settings on the new router we too complex for my PC or something like that), but he has not been able to solve the problem of not being able to connect to my iphone to use the 'hotspot' via the wifi function.
Someone there knows a way to solve this, or is it a simple fact of the laptop is too old and really need to update?
Thanks for any help that anyone is able to give.

This isn't a question of the age of the laptop
As far as I know not that support all mobile operators
You should first ask your mobile operator if you can use the tethering service.
If this would be supported in my mobile operator, then connect the iphone to the laptop first
So that you have two options: you can use the BT connection (in this case check if computer laptop also supports BT) or via a USB cable that came with the iPhone.
(PS: as far I know to attach is supported by iOS3.0 and higher)
After that the iphone was connected to the laptop, you must activate the tethering on iphone.
Under settings of-> network, you should see the option internet tethering it must be enabled.
Now you should be able to see that in the Network & Center sharing control panel.
I m a little frustrated when I try to restart or shut down to the bottom of my Satellite Pro A200 with my dynadock connection. I always turn off my 1st printer, as this used causes an error message, but the laptop crashes with the XP window...
I have analog external (I know, anawhat?, but they work) speakers connected to the front, makes no difference whether they have or not. Drive external DRIVE is connected via USB2 port back and my LAN cable. I think I've tried everything, however continue to suffer Frost :)))
There may be some compatibility issues with your printer software and software dynadock
Who knows. A thorough investigation would be necessary.
I installed Windows 7 on my Satellite Pro A200-1 s 1, recovered all the drivers on the Toshiba site, everything works fine (less than the webcam that doesn't work even with the previous s.o. XP or Vista...). But my Touchpad does not work... No Fn + F9, no drivers, nothing works. And in my control, Manager of Panel devices seem to be going well.
You reinstall the driver for the touchpad?
Also check if the option disable touchpad when USB mouse is connected is not checked. That are in the control panel-> mouse-> device settings
I just bought a laptop Satellite Pro A200 of lamia with windows Vista.
I found I can't connect to the internet or install hardware such as cameras or printers. The installation of the system software, but the actual hardware does not work. at first, I thought that it was not compatible, but I wonder if USB ports work correctly supposed that no matter what I connect to the top, cameras, printers, mp3 pc can't find the element even if it is automatically install advice?
Also, I am trying to connect this pc to my existing internet connection on a desktop computer. Any advice on how to do it because nothing seems to work. Cable and wireless and the laptop has an internal modem.

Indeed some older hardware options are not compatible with Vista. But if the 3rd party software supports Vista will not be problem using these devices.
You know that Vista is a new OS and Microsoft releases patches and fixes regularly very important.
I noticed this last fix that resolves to many USB issued under Vista:
I recommend the update to the Vista from time to time to fix some bugs in the OS

As you say your laptop is capable WLan so why you n t use the Wlan?
I also recommend this site MS how-to:
I have a Satellite Pro A200 - after starting the laptop she used to find the router wireless in good time, but now it seems to have slowed on the right and it may take a few minutes until 1/2 hour phone to find the router!
This doesn't seem to be a signal problem because when the router is found that I get a signal strength full 5 bars. Connection to the laptop the router with a cable shows that no problem also that the connection and internet access is no problem.
I do not understand why the laptop won't find the router faster and you would appreciate the help in the understanding of the problem and how to resolve the situation.
I don't have a lot of technical knowledge so please keep in mind when replying
Hi Potter (maybe Harry?) ;)
You can easily find what WiFi card has been installed in your laptop.
More details can be found in the *-> network adapters Device Manager *.
Check this out and you'll know what driver WLan is required!
_Regarding the question with your BIOS; _
This error is known to me, always happens if you n t unpack the BIOS package correctly!
What you need is a WinRAR or WinZip program.
I prefer WinRAR and it helps to unpack all of the BIOS update.
If you use the Vista operating system please check that another thread of forum on the same issue;
I'm new to the forum and have a big problem.
So, any help is welcome and appreciated.
My Satellite Pro A200 turns black after the BIOS screen and a black screen with a blinking cursor.
Also just as the screen goes black a beep can be heard which shows windows boot.
I can access the toshiba Setup screen but not the installation of security mode.
Please go into the BIOS settings and check if the HARD drive is listed there.
The blinking cursor is a typical sign of a malfunction of the HARD drive.
Eventually the HARD drive is dead and you need to replace it and reinstall the operating system.
I have a Satellite Pro A200 and Tuesday night I was able to connect to a wireless network. I received an update, rebooted and now it doesn t seem to work.
I can see the wireless networks available via the Toshiba Radar but cannot connect to my usual wireless network.
Also, the wireless network icon disappeared from my system tray and if I go to Control Panel/network connections, I can't even view available networks because there is no option to do so.
the FN/F8 will work?
Help! Please, I beg you!
Have you tried using System Restore and restore the operating system on time earlier?
Maybe this will remove the update installed, and you can again use the WLAN.
Check it out.
I have the Satellite Pro A200 Toshiba and I have some problems with the network.
The Inernet is upp and go, but I can't find the other computers on my network.
Im having 3 other computers on the network. The A200 is having Vista and the other has just XP - pro and XP-Home Edition.
The network of the stand-alone tree works well but the laptop is not present in the network.
I have checked the task force if it even.
Y at - it anyhone who is having an idea how or what is the problem?
Have you tried to use the option of network discovery in network and sharing Center?
I installed 2 x 2 GB, but it seems that it does not work. The funniest is that when current to run just a bunch of memory (2 GB so) it works, when you run both, it does not work and it freezes. This is the Samsung 2 GB 2Rx8 PC2 - 6400 s - 666 - 12 - E3
Ive' installed the BIOS (64 bit v2.60) was last updated for the Satellite Pro A200 and I am running Windows 7 64 bit
What Satellite Pro A200 you have exactly?
I ask this question because some A200 models were equipped with chipsets 943GML and these models support 2 GB only!
I own a Satellite Pro A200-PSAE7E and a license to retail for Windows Vista Ultimate 32-bit Edition (with SP1) is installed.
Before installing Vista, I have updated the BIOS to the latest version available on the Toshiba site ([http://it.computers.toshiba-europe.com/cgi-bin/ToshibaCSG/vista_drivers.jsp?service=IT]).
BIOS version is now 2.20 - WIN32 contained in this file: [http://support.toshiba-tro.de/tedd-files2/0/bios-20080404121735.zip]
After the installation of the operating system, I installed "Value package" ([http://support1.toshiba-tro.de/tedd-files2/0/vap-20080109135106.zip]) that contains the "utility Flash Cards". In my understanding, the installation of the "value added package" should allow the use of Fn keys.
This doesn't seem to be true or not true.
Here's what's happening.
-Prior to installation of the 'value-added' package, all Fn keys did not work.
-After installation of the "value added package", if the process of TCrdMain.exe is running, all Fn keys do not work.
-If I remove the startup TCrdMain.exe and I restart the PC, only a few keys Fn function (Fn + ESC, Fn + F1).
There is no way (or I have not found a way) for all keys Fn works.
Someone knows how to fix this?
Thanks in advance,
I am not sure, but it may be because of the SP1. I installed Vista Ultimate on A200 and stuff all listed (drivers, tools and utilities) from Toshiba support page.
Contains your Vista DVD facilities SP1 or you install on your own? If you install Vista Ultimate Edition (without SP1) and all the stuff on the Toshiba support site order Instructions of facilities.
I wonder if anyone can help. Just got a Toshiba Satellite Pro A200, when I cleaned the screen, I noticed that in the Middle at the top (the part under the webcam) pushes a little and squeaks. It's not normal, I'm wrong?
Thanks in advance,
It's not easy to tell if it of normal or not in most of the cases the ASP must check the notebook and then the technician could decide if a part needs to be replaced
I recommend you contact the ASP in your country and ask for details as well as a control of the laptop.
Dear COMPUTER gurus,
I have a portable Satellite Pro A200.
When I ping the local host, it says could not contact the pilot of intellectual property, error code 2.
I tried to fix the winsock using articles from microsoft without success.
Now I want to reapair the operating system using the recovery DVD.
The recovery DVD has a repair option?
If this isn't the case, anyone how to solve this problem?
This is the result, I was using the pc diagnostic tool.

I guess you're meaning to this MS article knowledge base:
[How to determine and to recover from Winsock2 corruption in Windows Server 2003, Windows XP, and in Windows Vista: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/811259]
Well, I searched a bit around and discovered that the solution described in article 811259 doesn t help in all cases
So searched the Web of the 3rd party site and someone has suggested to try these tips.
It s also from Microsoft:
* [How to reset the Protocol Internet (TCP/IP) in Windows XP | http://support.microsoft.com/kb/299357] *.
So check it out maybe it helps
If not, then you may be forced to reinstall your operating system, because the repair option is not included in the Toshiba Recovery CD ;(
The screen of my computer (Satellite Pro A200 - PSAE7) became white and will not normalize. This happens as soon as the boot. However, other processes are underway normally. Currently, I have to rely on an external monitor or LCD projector to allow me to continue my work.
What could be wrong and what can do?
> Currently I have to rely on an external monitor or LCD projector to allow me to continue my work.
This means that an external monitor works properly, no?
Well, there are two possible reasons: either the internal LCD screen is defective or LCD cable but the graphics card and the software are ok if everything works on an external monitor.
You see a picture if you move the internal screen a little? So, you can check if there is a bad connection. If you are familiar with the disassembly of the laptop, you can open Notepad and check the connection also.
An alternative you can also ask a maintainer approved assistance. Disassembly of the laptop is not a problem for guys so just get in contact with them. ;)
I've had my Satellite Pro A200-PSAE4E for about a year and a half now. He ran very well most of the time, but in recent months he has been stop itself randomly. There is no warning or "Windows is shutting down" he just me using my computer to a blank screen.
After frustrated with her, I did a full format my HARD drive and started from scratch. This does not solve the problem, and since then, the taskbar freezes. When I click on it I get the error and the hourglass cursor message "Windows Explorer is not responding... "I then have to click"restart", which makes the taskbar disappear for a few seconds before returning (usually without my sound icon).
The laptop turns off when it is connected to the electric network with & without the battery and when running only on battery, so I excluded all power problem.
I have considered it heats up too, but I use a block of cooling with built-in fans and has not himself in a few minutes after being hit not 24 hours, so I'm not sure that's the problem.
Someone at - it ideas?
I am running WIndows Vista Home Premium 32-bit if that's any help.

I think that the problem of overheating.
The fact is that the laptop would be down automatically stops in order to avoid that the pieces of equipment against damage.
In most cases this problem can be solved very easily. Using a jet of compressed air, you can remove the dust from the cooling modules and fans.
I clean my fans from time to time, because I noticed a higher temperature and the laptop was a little stronger.
