Equium A100-147 - deleted CD/DVD drive
I uninstalled the readers of DVD/CD ROM of my Equium A100-147 model PSAABE by mistake. How I can I restore it? I'm not very technical
It means that your CD/DVD drive is not more?
Have you already checked the Device Manager if the drive is visible or not?
Otherwise, you must follow the instructions in this Microsoft KB article:
I have a laptop Equium A100-147. I tried many games on my laptop which should conform to the specifications required for example battlefield 2, however, these games does not work and I didn't know why. I then realized that all the games I tried were all on 4 DVD-ROM drive demanding x, and the specifications I provided with my laptop did not specify what kind of DVD player, I had another super multi layer or something.
It is while I tried the games that were demanding CD-ROM which all worked fine, I then tried a game that was 2 x DVD ROM demanding that worked apart from a small problem with models of characters not displayed, so I took back defective. Then I tried a 1 x DVD-ROM game that worked perfectly.
Today, I decided to get my DVD specifications, where I found that my laptop should read 8 x DVD - ROM drives.
So my question is, is my defective DVD player for not playing more than 1 x DVD - ROM games? And can I contact Toshiba or my provider for repair or replacement or my problem would be something else?
Thank you, Josh
As far as I know the laptop was delivered with the drive UJ - 841S and the drive supports 8 x DVD-ROM.
Of course, there must be something wrong if the drive cannot read DVD-ROM media at full speed. The middle is not supported or the drive malfunctions
What you can do is search for the update of the firmware. Many laptops come with the same drive. See the categories of driver and, possibly, there is a new update of the firmware.
You can also try to remove the physical drive from the laptop and reboot the device without the drive. Then turn off the appliance, install the drive again and the boot upward.
The laptop must initialize the firmware again and maybe this will help
But it seems you notebook is not very old and the warranty is valid. If you need to contact the ASP in your country for more details and possibly for disc replacement
I got a toshiba Equium A100-147 by a friend. The only problem is that it comes without a hard drive, because he still destroyed his old hdd to protect its personal and professional data.
I saw in a local computer store a disk sata hard very good price for only? Â £38 it's a 160 GB w Digital Scorpio 5400 RPM 8 MB Cache S - ATA HDD laptop someone knows if it will work or this laptop does it work-specific hdd?
Looking forward to any help you guys can give
Of course you need a compatible HARD drive.
There are two different standards of HARD drive. SATA and IDE
You need the HARD drive with the SATA interface. I think the original HARD drive was 100 GB.
So a 120 GB and maybe a 160 GB SATA HDD should also be compatible.
As far as I know the HARD drive slot was placed at the bottom of the unit and a screw secures the plastic cover.
It of really not difficult to replace the HARD drive and I think that the details could be found in the user manual.
I have the same problem, as in the http://forums.computers.toshiba-europe.com/forums/thread.jspa?threadID=17316 section.
I downloaded and installed all the drivers that I needed on my Equium A100-147, but not working no driver Lan (ethernet).
I have windows XP, home edition, SP2.
I tried both types of drivers Toshiba download (and a few others also), that should work... but unfortunately, it does not.
I'd be happy if someone could help me. Thanks anyway.
Thanks for the feed back, but I must say that I'm really confused why you have problem to facilities with driver on Toshiba download page. In any case, the problem is solved and that's the most important thing! ;)
Hi I have an Equium A100-147 with a CARPET * a DVD-RAM UJ - 841S and I am returning the dvd region 2 region.
Tried to go through Win DVD, media player and the Manager of devices but not successful on all occasions.
Whenever I thought I left a change of reference, but when I say yes I want to make the change, that is not the case.
I tells me that I must use a region 2 media (do) and the administrator (this is me - I'm the only user).
I now regret letting my nephew use the laptop for watching a region 1 dvd.
Am not longer under warranty but have whateverhappens coverage of curries.
If you check the properties of ODD under DVD Region changes remaining how is noticed?

Check the Toshiba site for a newer version of the BIOS:

Equium A100-147 (Windows MCE) bought compatible Vista and bought my promised copy of Vista... used Toshiba step by step DVD ROM upgrade and also updated the Bios.
Tried to load Vista Home Premium and after going through all the steps, it came with this message...
«Could not update the computer startup configuration - installation cannot go ahead «...»»
How should I proceed and what is useful to load Vista.
Thanks in advance for any help.
Considers that Howard.
How have you tried to install vista on the laptop?
Have you tried to switch the MCE to Vista or were you running the new clean install of Vista?
In my opinion, you must perform a clean installation. Don t updated the existing MCE of Vista.
In such cases, you can join different installation problems
If you are an owner of an original MS windows XP CD try to run the console of your windows XP CD recovery.
Demarrer start from the CD at startup, and then press R to access the recovery console after loading the driver.
In the recovery console, typefixbootand then restart your laptop.
Then insert your Vista installation and restart.
This should solve your problem.
Equium A100-147 with Sonic, 'Save now' 7 worm, using gives 'NO recorder' and can not find the drive. If no records. I checked the box 'Save' in the properties for the drive but no joy. Also I tried Roxio software but it was also unable to find the drive.
All of the suggestions.
See you soon.
Please check in Device Manager if the cd/dvd drive is correctly recognized.
Additional if you can find the drive in the Device Manager, you could try to remove it and restart the laptop.
After restarting the laptop should recognize the device again.
Then you should check the functionality of the drive.
I studied a bit on the site of Microsoft for similar problems and found a few interesting sites:
In my opinion, some registry entries are corrupted.
I had trouble with my equium a100-147.
I tried a restore, but the disc is scratched so I phoned in ESL and it snet me a new recovery image.
I tried the new recovery disk and am now errors when I boot the disk.
"internal error crc file: \WINDOWS\$NtUninstallKB895200$\msdtctm.dl.
any suggestions are welcome. get really annoyed with my machine as my warranty expired only one month
Hmm... I studied a bit and it looks a bit like a malfunction of the partition.
It would be desirable to boot from the original CD of Microsoft XP and to start the repair console.
Then you could try these various commands which help to repair the boot manager, repair errors, locate bad sectors and recover readable information.
If this does not help, you should erase the entire partitions and must format the HARD drive in NTFS file system. Then access the BIOS and set it to the default value.
Once this procedure tries to start again on the new recovery CD!
Having a little trouble with my Equium a100-147.
Tried a recovery from disk and I got up to 75% and recovery stopped.
Taken to a computer shop to get it fixed and they couldn't do anything because they do not have a disc of recovery in good condition.
Is there anywhere I can download the image to a different computer, put it on a dvd and restart from that one?

I'm having Toshiba Equium A100-147 [00800 EAV] PSAABE... is device a infrared?
What is the corresponding driver for it? How to activate this device?
Please help me!
Can you see the infrared sensor on your laptop?
According to the specifications of the laptop your Equium doesn t have the infrared device.
Don't Equium A100 - 147 HDD have the same shock of the A120 series?
Sorry, but the Equium A120 is unclear to me. Where did you find information on this laptop and HARD shock anti-mecanisme disc?
I found some info on the new feature called Toshiba EasyGuard.
Protection of hard drive (HDD) a feature of Toshiba EasyGuard is designed not to damage the hard drive and disks of data caused by the shock, fall or vibration.
This feature can be found in the device under the section manager system devices as driver of Toshiba HDD protection shock sensor.
But unfortunately, I don t find anything similar on the Equium A100
My Equium A100-147 has 1 VGA and 1 S-Video output, so I use the VGA output on an external LCD monitor with a native resolution of [email protected], but integrated graphics Intel 945 card doesn t give me the correct resolution to choose for this monitor, the closest is 1600 x 1200 and some weird widescreen resolutions other that make my monitor see the scaling an ugly picture.
So I tested another external monitor with a native resolution of 1920 x 1200 resolution closest gave me Intel drivers is 1920 x 1080, even the installation of two drivers of monitors, remove and reinstall the driver and same formatting the machine and reinstall everything from scratch gave no different results.
I have another laptop MSI Wind with the same graphic card built in and the same version of the pilot, and the laptop detects both the monitor and the good resolutions for them, this isn't a problem of Monitor driver.
Seems to me that is a problem with the S-video output, which makes this mess, but there is no way to disable it in the BIOS or any other place in Device Manager I still seem.
Can someone give me some advice for what can do?
You cannot choose the preferred resolution because the graphics chip does not support this external resolution or the installed graphics driver is not contained in this resolution. The two cases are possible.
If you want to know if your graphic chip supports this resolution and then take a look at the user manual and check it.
If the chip of the graphics card would support this resolution and you will not be able to choose, then that would mean that the graphics driver does not support this resolution.
But first he must find out what external resolutions are supported by the GPU.
Hi, I recently bought a laptop A100-147 - accepted a view model that I had trouble getting one of them. On the beautiful screen, the screen resolution is 1024 x 768 - that it and 640 x 480 and 800 x 600 are available. This sounds awfully stretched.
Is this correct? Or do I have to create a different graphics driver that allows me to select a screen resolution?
According to the description of the Equium A100-147 comes with color Wide XGA TFT 15.4 TruBrite display ". The standard resolution of this monitor is 1280 x 800. If you dot have this one please install graphic driver. You can find it on the download page of Toshiba under http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com support & downloads.
I can't imagine that it happens after the first start. You have preinstalled your own operating system?
I own an Equium A100-147 with 60 GB HARD drive. I have a recovery disc and have restored the laptop several times.
I am considering an upgrade to 250 GB HARD drive.
Couple of questions...
The motherboard will host a 250 GB drive?
If I replace the HARD drive recover CD will install a new copy of the fatory software you (inc windows xp MCE)?
Any advice would be welcome.
Yes, you can use a 250 GB. The laptop has a SATA interface and there is no limit as to IDE.
If you use the recovery CD, you will get to factory settings. This means an XP installation with all the drivers and tools.
