Cover loose on Satellite P100 series

The lid of my laptop now only stand in a completely vertical position. Point left seems to be very loose and I was wondering if maybe a few screws can be tightened upward if the small plastic hinge comes off somehow. I really don't want to have to send it off to be repaired if its something easily fixed. I was able to undo the hinge cover where it attaches to the main body of the laptop, but even with both sides, I can't completely remove to access the fixing points. Some tips on this would be greatly appreciated.

Hello Andrea

I guess you don t want to send laptop to fix, but please don t do anything on your own. The machine is new with valid warranty. If you try to do something alone and make a mistake, the warranty will be voided.

Please contact the Toshiba service authorized in your country. Talk with them and you will see how much time they need to check and correct this.

  • Double beep at regular intervals on Satellite P100 series

    I just bought a Satellite P100 laptop.
    The laptop makes a double beep every few minutes, even if I unplug the power.
    When I disable, the ringing continues.
    The speakers do not seem to work, even if the volume settings are all on.

    Thank you for the help,

    Hello Larso

    Did you install own OS or you are using already preinstalled at the factory?

    In my opinion these things should not happen, and if I were you I would dealer and him to confront these issues. The device is new and before starting any kind of troubleshooting check that with garage.

    The only thing you can try is to preinstall unit with recovery media. On this way the OS will be own pre-installed and you can check if the problem persists.

  • What Satellite P100 series includes P100-106?

    I have toshiba satellite p100-106. At the back of the machine, my model is PSPADE - G 018010, 3.

    When I want to check the version of the bios, some other software or drivers writes article p100-106: what is your PSPA0E, PSPA3E, PSPA6E model. But there is not PSPADE as mine is. I checked it 5 times and it is not 0 it is letter d on my laptop.

    What to choose?
    Thank you


    I'm not 100% sure, but I guess it works in this way:
    Your laptop is delivered and pre-installed with the Vista operating system. Your operating system is complete and new. I don't think that you will find no updates in this short time. BIOS is also the most recent. Other units (Satellite P100-PSPA0, Satellite P100-PSPA3 and Satellite P100-PSPA6) are WXP and they are all supported in Vista. Because of this priority is to support these units due to the installation of Vista.

    When the new update will be available for your device, you'll find it under, but at present there is no update.

    What to choose? Nothing! Be happy with your new toy.

  • Loose on Satellite P100-240 DC-In Jack

    I just noticed that my new Toshiba P100-240 laptoop has quite a 'loose' DC in socket - is not to lose in making decision, but the actual shooting itself.

    While she viewed etc and I don't miss the power or anything, I was wondering if this is normal, or if the plug must be rigid without movement.

    P100-240 users can let me know if their is the same?

    Post edited by: 2002standardmat


    I put t know if this appears on another unit P100, but something similar happens on my laptop's brother.
    The power jack on the laptop was lost.
    It was a new laptop so I was recommended to contact the service.
    The technician said that the screw is just a little loose and therefore the vacillee DC Jack.

    Possibly it of identical on your laptop, but I think that it s not terrible.

  • Satellite P100 series with core2duo - no support for virtualization?

    my brand new laptop P100-324 with core 2 duo T7400 has no virtualization support - however, it was clearly written in Tech spec.
    It was not cheap at all, so I don't think that the sheet will lie!

    It's serious reflection.
    I ask the representatives of toshiba to lose a word or two here in this topic and when new BIOS on, which will allow the Intel VT.

    If it will be - as I hope! I'm sure that cpu can handle VT (indicated in the documents of cpu Intel laptop, and cpu is VT flags etc.), but the VT is just disabled by default in the BIOS and there is nothing to do.


    Could you please put the link to the page that says that this laptop model supports the VT technology?
    It would be very interesting

    Usually, virtualization can be enabled and disabled in the BIOS. If the BIOS don't provide that option then it s a clear case of the VT can be not activated

    As you probably know Toshiba offer a wide range of portable models and offers different models P100.
    Maybe some media VT units and some don t.

  • Satellite P100-103: upgrade of the Core 2 Duo processor?

    I bought it is model and I thought to change the processor in a C2D. I just wanted to know if it is possible or not...
    BTW ive seen a P100 with double HD or something I want to know if it is possible with mine or I just read wrong '-_-

    Thanks in advance

    Hi Filipe

    Generally, the upgrade of the CPU is not very easy on laptops and undesirable. In my knowledge Toshiba doesn't supports CPU upgrade and you will lose the warranty if you open Notepad.

    As far as I know the microprocessor used in the Satellite P100 series (Intel Platform) will be different by the model.
    It supports the following processors:

    Intel Core Duo T2300(1.66GHz); T2400(1.83GHz); T2500 (2 GHz); T2600(2.16Gz); T2700(2.33Gz) FSB: 667 MHz

    Intel Core Solo T1400(1.83GHz); T1300(1.66GHz); FSB: 667 MHz

    Intel Celeron-M (Yonah core based) 410; 420; 430; FSB: 533 MHz

    Hope I could bring this matter to light.

    Good bye

  • Cover of split near the hinges on Satellite P100

    Cover orange on my Satellite P100 guard split by hinges, even if I now have to take great care to open and close the lid. Toshiba have replaced under warranty.

    I think the hinge friction is too strong for the coverage. Someone at - it a similar problem and if yes what can we do?

    It seems unnecessary to keep just replace the cover every time.

    Post edited by: ADMIN

    One of my friends sent the laptop to replace the top cover and everything was done for free! The warranty covered replacing.
    Technicians of the ASP has changed the defective part and said that the new top cover has been used seems they have changed something on the cover of proximity to the hinges, because so far everything is ok

  • DVD drive does not burn/erase RS - Satellite P100-347


    I bought a Toshiba Satellite p100-347 PSPA6E laptop computer. It has a DVD burner with model number: HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GMA-4082N (firmware pt06). It has capabilities to burn any DVD (please see example using dvdino:

    However, I can't rewrite on my Maxell dvd + rw (1.4 x speed) dvd. whenever I go to a software application to erase a dvd that I wrote on, it says unrecognized format. For example, Nero says "this disc is not rewritable and therefore can not be deleted. Please insert a rewritable disc.

    The disc is rewritable because it says on the cover and also it burns on my friends rewritable dvd burner :(

    Please can anyone help:(je suis vraiment coincé et il serait beaucoup aprécié)



    As you probably know, readers don t support all kinds of media.
    I mean not every CD - R, DVD - RW, CD + RW, DVD + RW, and so on, average is supported.
    I can confirm these issues in my practical knowledge I tested for several months and many media, I use the TDK on my laptop and only CD or DVD media.
    They work best with my drive...

    But I'll give you a tip:
    You should remove other software burning like sonic, etc if you use Nero. The joint software sometimes makes trouble.

  • Fractures of fatigue on the Satellite P100-423

    Hi all

    This is my first post here.
    The hinges on my Satellite P100-423 have always been fairly rigid. Thus fractures of stress now appeared on the back of the lid near the hinges.
    I bought in Nov/06 and it seems to be now out of warranty.
    I would appreciate any advice on what I can do about it or how to get it fixed.

    I totally agree with codes for the ASP must replace it and I think that this plastic cover should t be too expensive.

    If you n t know how to communicate with ASP, then please check this database:> support download &-> find an authorized service provider

    Good luck

  • No sound on a Satellite P100-324 using don't Win 7 64 bit

    Hi all

    I have a laptop Toshiba Satellite P100 - 324.
    I installed Win 7 64 bit on this computer and I have problem with sound now.

    My sound does not work. I tried to install a driver but without result.
    I tried to download the driver from realtek but it was the same thing.

    Do you know how I can run on this PC?

    Thanks for your advice



    Satellite P100-324 belongs to the series of PSPA6E.
    The European driver Toshiba page asserts that Realtek audio driver should be compatible.
    But the Realtek audio driver Toshiba on page is released for Win 7 32 bit, not 64-bit.

    I recommend the driver on the Realtek page. There you should find one that suits.

    You can also check the Dev ID and could find the compatible driver for internet.

  • Question about the update of value added for the Satellite P100-160 package


    I got an email off the coast of Toshiba today telling me there is a value added package update available (PVAT (v1.0.25).
    I downloaded and unpacked. It contains three options:
    2 don't buttons, button 6, no button but there is no readme etc to tell me which version is my P100-160.

    I have added, trying to install one of them gives me an error that it has already installed older versions that should be deleted everything first.

    Can someone advise please that I should use?
    Thank you!

    Hi guys

    Value added package contains many different Toshiba and utility tools!
    Satellite P100-160 belongs to the PSPAA series! So, you should always choose this series if you want to download the drivers from the Toshiba page!
    This number can be checked on the bottom of the unit.

    I visited the page of the Toshiba driver and checked the details.
    You will find an info that this package installs a range of important public services.
    -TOSHIBA components common Driver: this module is an essential component of Windows Vista. He will have to make the other original programming TOSHIBA works correctly.
    -TOSHIBA Power Saver: The energy saver controls energy by opting for optimal power settings, if the machine is connected or battery-based knowledge and based on the remaining battery power.
    -TOSHIBA utility: this program allows you to customize the settings of your hardware, depending on how you work with your computer and the devices you use. To start the utility, click the Start button and select Control Panel, and select Configuration HW TOSHIBA icon.
    -TOSHIBA password utility: this utility allows you to set a password that restricts access to the computer.
    -TOSHIBA Flash Cards: This utility provides the Hotkey function and the function of pitcher who starts the keyboard shortcut function and sends the other TOSHIBA utilities.

    In my opinion, if you want to update the package of value added, you must remove all the tools of this and after new reboot you must install it again

  • Satellite P100-429: Intel Wireless Wifi Link 4965agn card is not compatible?

    Hey guys

    I have a Satellite P100-429 with a 3965abg to intel, I have a few router purchased months ago Netgear wnr834b n project, then think, it is high time, I upgraded my internal adapter.

    I wanted to know if the Intel Wireless WiFi Link 4965AGN adapter would fit that is a right with the 3965 swap, as it says it's connection is Mini PCIe card * and I have no idea if it would fit?


    Yes, she should go, because the W-LAN-mini-card slot is a PCI-Express, so you'll just have to swap the cards. But be careful with the antenna connections, if you bend them too so they break very quickly and then there is NO WAY back and you will pay for the exchange of
    the whole cover, where are the antennas of screen.

    Best is to contact a local service partner if they exchanged, you don t therefore the risk for the guarantee void if you do something 'not very good' on your machine. :)

  • Satellite P100-429 does support the 5-in-1 card reader?

    IM wanting to buy a new laptop computer and is came through the "Toshiba Satellite P100-429'." It's the portable perfect! However, when I searched the internet for a detailed technical specification, I found that on he states that there is no memory card reader:

    Still other sites, he says that there is a 5-in-1 including Toshiba card reader themselves. It is therefore possible to have the same laptop model but with a different specification? or is it a typo in the site of pixmania? Thank you

    > is it possible to have the same laptop model but with a different technique
    Of course, many laptops in the same series were delivered with different hardware specifications it is nothing unusual.

    For example, the dvi video port, express card slot or the married media card slot are available on some models.
    I would trust the Web from Toshiba site and this model should support housing ExpressCard and a PCMCIA Type II slot.
    The slot SD, Compact Flash Card slot card and smart card reader are not available on this model
