Equium A100-147 - sound devices do not work correctly

I've owned an Equium A100-147 for only less than a year.

The problem I have is that if I put pressure on the area around the left speaker (where is the VGA port) there is a substantial "cracking" / rattling noise. The right does not exhibit this problem.

The other day with a same case design (model Satellite A), I got another PC Toshiba laptop and it seems to have a slightly stiffer construction quality.

Is it worth getting it checked under warranty while I still have the warranty? Or am I just too picky?

See you soon

Interestingly enough, why you support on the area around the speakers. As far as I know the speakers are placed between the keyboard and display and keyboard there is no pressure to the speakers. Very strange method to test the functionality of the laptop! ;)

In any case, you should contact the service because the speaker should be placed and fixed correctly.

  • My DVD player does not work and all the information I can find is "this device does not work correctly.

    Hi, I have Windows Vista and I use a computer laptop Dell studio. When I insert a disc into my CD/DVD drive, the drive spins and it looks like it is about to start and makes the same noise start several times and then just stops. My computer does not record that there is a disc there. If I double click on the DVD drive in 'My computer' it ejects my disc and says "insert the disc in drive E".

    I went on the 'repair' Microsoft online scanner and it told me that there is a problem, but he can fix it. In Device Manager, under CD/DVD-ROM readers I have Optiarc DVD +-RW AD - 7640S. Under device status - general - properties, it says "this device does not work correctly. He also says that I have the updated driver.

    I even uninstalled the driver as a last resort and then restarted my computer. It reinstalled the driver for me, but there was no change. Please help me!


    Step 1: Please do all the same underneath if you did some before as is often total
    a process that solves the problem.

    Try this - Panel - Device Manager - CD/DVD - double click on the device - driver tab.
    Click on update drivers (this will probably do nothing) - RIGHT click ON the drive - uninstall.
    RESTART this will refresh the default driver stack. Even if the reader does not appear to continue

    Then, work your way through these - don't forget the drive might be bad, could be a coward
    cable or slight corrosion on the contacts (usually for a laptop) and other issues.

    Another possibility is that the cables are loose. Remove ALL power, then make sure that the cables in both

    Some DVD players do not use the Windows default drivers so check with the manufacturer of system and
    manufacturer of device to see if there is a firmware or drivers for your drive if necessary.


    Step 2: You have disc problems as the CD/DVD is actually 4 discs in 1 case (CD & DVD

  • Equium P300-16 t - Synaptics Pointing Device does not work correctly

    I hope someone can help.

    Just bought this laptop and for some reason, I get an error message come saying the Synaptics Pointing Device does not work properly. The touchpad loses some functions and a warning appears informing me of this. I can still use it, but disappears from the icon in the taskbar with the flashing blue dot - when I go into the control panel it says the driver and he asks if I installed another ps/2 pointing device driver

    Looking forward to any help you can give.

    Suggest that you reinstall simply touch pad drivers. Maybe new version?
    So, just uninstall drivers, restart your computer, reinstall the drivers.

  • Equium A100 - 338 PSAAQE: shortcut keys not working not not after changing Vista to XP

    I recently bought a PSAAQE Equium A100-338. It came preloaded with Vista home premium. I removed what I need XP pro. I found all the drivers to get everything works except the shortcut keys. I tried all the drivers available, but none works. Are there other drivers available for the access keys work.

    Can anyone provide a url to a site where I can get the driver. Also, why are there no XP driver specific available, it took forever to find all those that I needed. I know a lot of it, specialists and companies that will not use Vista and only allow for XP.

    For these features, you have no drivers but Toshiba has designed tools or utilities, but I fear that these tools are not designed for Windows XP Home edition. Not yet.

    I believe you when you say that to many it professionals want to use Windows XP Home edition, but if everything works well, but these buttons are not so important to the features of the laptop and any computer can do its job.

  • Equium A100 - s video link did not work

    Dear Forum members

    I have an Equium A100 running Vista (home edition).
    In the past I had luckily my PC connected to a TV to help to drive a S-video to watch TV programs, DVD etc.

    But recently my computer had to be reset to the factory settings and since that time that the s video link didn't work - PC wallpaper displays on the TV but nothing else.
    I charge what I hope are the latest appropriate drivers (perhaps the source of the problem) and the display settings appear to be correct.

    Any help with this problem would be greatly appreciated.


    >... the PC wallpaper displayed on the TV but nothing else.
    This happens when the option extend the desktop to this monitor is enabled.
    If it please enter display properties/settings and make sure that this option is disabled.

  • sound card does not work correctly after Windows update

    My sound card has been disabled when I install an automatic update for windows. There was an extra audio driver in Device Manager 'bluetooth AV audio' and audio peripheral anoither like this.

    The two devices have been works fine with my PC for a long time, but this weekend my Scarlett has stopped working, and my CI2 works with an intermittent buzzing. The two appear as audio devices and I reinstalled the drivers, checked speakers etc. configurations. I also tried both devices with my laptop and both work just fine then the issue is definitely with my PC.

  • Equium A80: PS2/USB adapter does not work correctly

    I have a satellite A80. I bought an adapter to allow me to use a graphics tablet on the usb ports. The adapter gives a ps2 keyboard and mouse ps2.

    The adptor is recognized by windows and displayed in the list of hardware. It also shows the mouse connected to it as a gift. But, the problem is there is no movement of the mouse either and the ps2 keyboard does not work either.

    Any ideas?


    I have never used these adapters and I can t give you a solution, but I can only speculate on this issue.
    I think you should check the mouse options in Control Panel. Here, you can also configure the settings. It is possible with the USB mouse, but I don't know if this is possible with the USB - PS2 adaptor. However, you can check it out.

    I remember, a friend of mine tried to use the keyboard PS2 on the desktop PC.
    He bought a USB-> adapter PS2 but it didn t work.
    The technician had said that there could be an IRQ problem.

    Well, you can also try to go to Device Manager and select mice and other pointing devices area.
    If he has listed more than peripheral mouse so I recommend disable it and only turned on the PS/2 compatible mouse.
    Try to do the same thing with PS/2 keyboard.

    My laptop is a HP G7030EA - MS Windows Vista Home Basic 32-bit SP2 Intel Pentium Dual CPU T2330 @ 1.60 GHz, 1.0 GB RAM, Mobile Intel 965 Express Chipset Family, bought new in February 2008.  I have not changed any hardware, software, etc.  I do not use it for games, only for things such as e-mails and visit websites

    Until last month when my desktop computer broke, I used the laptop only occasionally as a backup of the computer.  It never quite worked and seems to be unable to handle several tasks at once, often taking minutes for Google to load.  When I get impatient and click the mouse too much I heard a horrible noise and the screen mouse cursor freeze for a minute or two.

    As the laptop has become my main computer at the moment, I downloaded AVG PC Tune Up to see if it would improve it performance has not helped.  I was surprised to see how much memory the AVG2013 anti virus program uses, but wonder if the speed of connection and freezing problems I experience result (AVG Tune Up conclusions on) the Teredo Tunneling pseudo-interface unit does not properly.

    I follow AVG on screen re boards: looking for a software driver update but none was found, and I got the message "the best driver for your device software is already installed.  Windows has determined that the driver software for your device is up-to-date, Tun Miniport, Microsoft Map.

    This left me confused.  If there is a problem with this device, no solution seems to exist.

    Any help that will allow my laptop to function normally is welcome.

    I understand that you want to know if the teredo adapter can cause performance problems.

    The teredo adapter should not cause performance problems.  It is really just used to allow devices work IPv4 with IPv6 Internet service provider.  If the ISP was using IPv6 and your system did not have the adapter teredo, so it wouldn't work properly with the service provider.  For now, IPv6 is a significant minority that the world continues to work on IPv4 as not all networks, Internet service providers, and businesses are not entirely passed to IPv6.

    This thread on the Microsoft forums goes into a little more detail about the adapter teredo including how to disable it so that you only see it in Device Manager.  Unless you are using IPv6, this shouldn't really be a problem.

    If you start in safe mode, the performance problem persists?  Turn on the computer and press F8 once per second for the Mode option, safe mode with networking.  This will help you to further isolate the performance problem.

    Furthermore, does this happen that the adapter is connected or not?

  • On connection WLAN Equium A100-337 security screen is not displayed correctly

    My use of the computer to automatically connect to a specific WLAN without any problem. However, now, when trying to connect to the same network, security touch screen I am presented with is not of the correct type. Instead of two lines of encryption there is one. When I enter the password, I get a message saying I'm connected to the network but cannot access the Internet. The wireless router works fine.

    I have to reset something on my computer or change a setting?


    May I ask what wireless configuration tool do you use?
    Have you tried to update or reconfigure the WiFi profile on the router and the laptop?
    Try this. Disable encryption on the router and try to connect without security settings. If it works, you can set encryption return parameters.
    You can also try reinstalling the WLan driver.

    By the way; did you use the firewall? Active firewall sometimes could is a bad influence on the internet or WLan connectivity.
