Equium A100-147: need a new disc of restoration as mine has been a scratch
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?
Contact the ASP in your country and order the necessary CD
Here you can find near the ASP in your country
I was wondering if you could help me at all the
My A100 became really slow and unstable. So decided to use the product recovery disc, but found to be scratched.
I tried to use a disc repairman but have had no joy.
I have the original product recovery cd and good purchase is anyway to get a new drive of toshiba.
The laptop was purchased directly from curries and is one year old.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thank you very much
Have you seen another thread here in the forum about the purchase of restore CD?
I m what you did!
So the solution is very simple! You must contact the service provider allowed in your country and to order a new recovery CD Toshiba laptop you.
All that s!
Anyone know where I can get clips of replacement for two of the keys on my keyboard as the keys continue to fall off the coast. Those not too bad but other clip is broken
Thanks in advance
AFAIK, you can replace the caps key only.
If the PAC is defective or damage then you should be able to order one will put caps from a local ASP (certified partner).
I found also a few online shops that provide these plugs use google
However, the ASP in your country may still provide the necessary parts then I recommend you to make a call and ask need parts
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 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!
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
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.
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! ;)
I have problems to find the dirver for my ethernet controller...
I went to the toshiba Web site and on the LAN driver is not finished, he does that with any application to uninstall, doesn't have to install, missing problably...
I could find on the web...
I managed to install the wirelles, so I can use the net over there... but I want to install the LAN as well...
Anyone know where I can find driver (ethernet LAN) Equium A100-147? *
Thank you very much...
Have you tried to update the BIOS?
Check the Toshiba site for a newer version of the BIOS:

I think to upgrade the RAM on my Equium A100-147 and I was wondering what kind of RAM I should get and what is the maximum amount of RAM supported?
It has a processor clocked at 1.6 GHz centrino duo t2050 if that's any help? I looked on the toshiba site and they sell only 1 GB of supported modules, but in other places I've seen people say that it can take more?
The maximum RAM capacity depends on your chipset you have. From Toshiba Web site displays a maximum capacity of 4 GB of RAM, but don t forget, you need an OS to use the full capacity of 64-bit. Otherwise, you are only able to use about 3 GB.
You can buy all the modules you want to, but I made good experiences with the Kingston modules. Kingston memory research shows the compatible modules for your laptop:

I have an Equium A100 147 which is now out of warranty.
I need to be able to find and of course spare part number where I can buy one of these ASAP.
If someone could help me with this, it would be quite apprieciated.
You can not ONLY buy the fan. The fan is a part of the cooling module and the entire module cooling must be replaced.
You need a cooling module that has been designed especially for this series of laptop and I know ASP (certified partner) in your country should be able to help.
I think guys should be able to order this part compatible directly from the warehouse of Toshiba.
Then call the guy and ask for help!
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.
I have an Equium A100-147 with Vista home Premium SP1 and 1 GB of RAM.
Recently I get a glitch-pop-crack from time to time even if the audio output is cut.
Have no idea what could be the cause?
I'm more or less certain that everything is up-to-date.
Thanks in advance.
I never heard a question also and now I can t say what's the reason for this. :(
You have the same problem on external speakers?
What operating system do you use?
Perhaps you need to update the audio driver you can find on the Toshiba site:

My Equium A100-147 is about 3 years now and won't hold its charge longer than 10 minutes so I bought a used one on eBay for a broken machine.
It's the wrong kind.
Been declared as Toshiba equium laptop battery but it is of course many variants.
My battery model number is: PA3399U-2BRS 10.8V 4000mAh
EBay battery model number is: PA3384U-1BRS 14.8V 4300mAh and nealy twice the size! (Could someone tell me models that suit so I can sell it on)
Pete has soon.
Before you wait here put the part number in Google and you will find on what mobile phone models can use this type of battery.
