Equium A100-147: very low volume
Just bought a new A100-147 and found that the volume through the built-in speakers is extremely low, even when the scroll bar on the sound setting has been set up. Anyway already activated the manual volume on the Esc key control.
I had the same problem. Refer to the thread: http://forums.computers.toshiba-europe.com/forums/thread.jspa?threadID=17350
The answer: there is a button for volume control on the front of the laptop! I'm glad it wasn't just me who does not have this spot!
Just bought a new A100-147 and found that the volume through the built-in speakers is extremely low, even when the scroll bar on the sound setting has been set up. I can barely hear anything, even my PDA has an output sound better than that. The problem exists for MP3, CD, and DVD. I noticed other assignments as well as on this forum with the same problem with other models (80 Equium and others), but cannot find a solution yet.
It's a standard specific to a few patterns or problem with all laptops from Toshiba? My particular piece could be at fault?
Any help appreciated.
See you soon,.
Don t be mad, but I smile now: ^ O :D
In any case, thanks for the info
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 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'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.
I bought an Equium A100-147 last week and noted in the manual it should have Bluetooth capabilities. However, I can't get this to work. I looked for my phone, and it does not pick up the computer as a bluetooth device. In the help files, it says I can set it up in the bluetooth settings in the Control Panel, but there is nothing in there. I tried to install the battery Bluetooth Toshiba, but it keeps asking me to install the bluetooth device.
This computer actually has bluetooth abilities or not? If so, how can I get this to work?
See you soon
Each unit with BT has BT label in the lower corner. Something like this http://support.toshiba-tro.de/KB0/FAQ35007I001WR01.htm
If you do not find it the BT is certainly not available.
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...

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:

Hi, I have an Equium A100-147 with the standard of 1 GB of RAM (512 MB + 512 MB pc-4200) professional XP.
I'd like to update, and I was wondering if it would be allowed to replace one of the 512 MB sticks with a single stick of 2 GB pc-5300. RAM would be then 2 GB pc-5300 plus 512 MB pc-4200 = 2.5 GB in total.
Or would it be better to buy 2 x 1 GB sticks of pc-5300 and sell or discard existing memory?
I see a significant speed increase over the existing configuration of the Ram?
All advice appreciated.
I agree with Akuma, it would be better to use 2 x 1 GB modules.
This combination with 2 GB and 512 MB with different (PC4200 and PC5300) specifications could make problems like freezing, BSOD, etc..
At present, the price of memory is very cheap, so I think that this should not be a problem.
My husband and I are two retreats with very little knowledge of computers, and we received a Toshiber Equium A100-147 of a friends wife after the death of her husband.
When turn it on as soon as the Toshiba screen appears it want an entered password and my question is what is the password.
I looked through all the documents related to our friends for the computer and there is nothing there.
I think you're talking about the BIOS password.
This password can be set or removed in the BIOS and its type of protection.
Without knowing this password you will not be able to boot Windows system
Also it is not possible to remove this password if you know n t s the old password.
Only the technician of the ASP (authorized service provider) would be able to bypass and remove this password
So I see only one solution; local ASP contact and ask for help.
Welcome & good luck
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
Equium A100-147 would not start. Only the lights next to the CapsLock F10 F11 keys are on. When the switch is pushed the lights disappear back only after about 15 seconds.
Disconnect the power adapter and remove the battery. After doing this press the power for 30 seconds. Wait a few moments, connect the power adapter only and try to start your laptop.
What happens when you do this?
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?
Contact the ASP in your country and order the necessary CD
Here you can find near the ASP in your country
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! ;)
