Equium A60-157: error caused by device driver

Hi all

I try to write my thesis at the moment and am hampered by my laptop! It keeps randomly, which brings to the top of the blue screen of death, then by restarting; When everything is loaded to the top, I get a "serious error" message that says "error caused by the device driver. As far as I know, all the programs I have are compatible... I was advised to restore the factory settings, which I did a few months ago. And I got the BIOS update for my computer. But it is always the case!

If it helps, the programs I use daily are Microsoft Word, Access, Powerpoint, Internet Explorer and MSN Messenger. I do not run any games high spec (only Minesweeper occasionally!)

What can I do? Does anyone else have this problem? Any advice would be much appreciated, because these accidents do not help us to my work!

Thank you...



It's not easy to tell which device is causing the error.
What you can do is to check the device drivers. Visit the page of the Toshiba driver and check if there is a new version of driver for example graphic driver.

Also sometimes this error message appears if the module of memory is faulty.

What you can do is to use the Microsoft Online Crash Analysis.
Maybe if you can identify this evil s.

Good luck

  • Equium A60-157: Question about maximum size of HARD drive


    Looking to upgrade my Pentium 4 3.06GHz Equium A60-157 a bit then got a new module of 1024 MB of RAM, but now really to upgrade my 40 gb HDD to go with. I found all the specifications of the type of HARD drive, I need, but may not know what the maximum size of the disk, it is that the BIOS will recognize. I don't think that I've never updated by the BIOS and I'm looking to get a 120 GB drive. Any ideas please?

    Thanks for your help!

    Hi Alex,

    Most portable smanufactured in the last 5 years or so are able to accept larger hard drive capacity without problem. I am currently using a 80 GB drive in an old SA30 of three years. I can't guarantee a 120 GB drive will work, but I see no reason why it wouldn't.

  • Equium A60 - 157 HELP Card/PCMCIA wireless network!

    Hi all!

    This problem has been frustrating me for at least 2 months.

    OK, I recently bought a Belkin Wireless G Notebook Card (wifi card).
    The first time I installed the wifi card it worked perfectly. I powered
    extinguish your laptop (after I had finished working on it). The next day
    When I turned the laptop on, you guessed it, the wifi card was not
    work. I did not remove the wifi card for the power off/power on stage.

    When I went into Device Manager, a yellow exclamation point was
    above the wifi card. When I looked at the properties of wifi cards, I found the
    following message appears:

    This device cannot find enough free resources that it can use. (Code 12)
    If you want to use this device, you will need to disable one of the other devices on this system.
    Click Troubleshoot to start the troubleshooter for this device.

    I tried unistalling and reinstalling the wifi card. I tried to use the latest Belkin drivers for the wifi card. Sometimes it works, but when I have the power turned off/turned on the laptop it s not go.

    One of the ways I got the card to operate was removing and inserting the card several times
    until he finds resources and finally worked. I put t use this method as, obviously, I might damage the cardbus slot and the card. In the meantime I ve been using a Belkin Wireless G USB network adapter. I had no problems with the USB adapter, but I prefer to use the wifi card. This is because the majority of the wifi card is housed inside the laptop, so it s not easily evicted. The USB adapter is great for wireless networks inside, but too risky for roaming outside.

    I had this problem of 1.70 at 1.8 ° C bios version, and I still have it with revision 1.90. I intend to return m wifi card in the store for an Exchange, but I have a really bad feeling that the same thing will happen with the replacement of the card. I m not convinced that the current wifi card is defective, because it works perfectly when he gets the resources.

    I tried to manually configure resources on the devices, but I have a major problem. Windows seems to be LOCKED in the automatic settings. The automatic settings check box is grayed out completely, it is impossible for me clear the checkbox. I did not take anything in the bios that can help me solve this problem.

    I noticed that there are many devices running off IRQ (interrupt requests) 19, when you view resources by type in Device Manager. These devices are:

    Standard enhanced PCI to USB Host Controller
    USB host controller standard OpenHCD x 2 (two entries)
    Texas Instruments OHCI Compliant IEEE 1394 Host Controller
    Controller CardBus Texas Instrumetns PCI-1410

    When the wireless card works she also runs IRQ 19, but as I said before Windows is locked in the automatic settings and do not manually configure the hardware resources.

    Equium A60-157 is not provided on board, but it has the potential for. WiFi L.e.d. on the front panel, physical location for wifi turn on side panel wireless icon and F8. Someone know if Toshiba offer an upgrade service, or can I install wifi on board myself?

    Thanks for your time!


    I found this for you:

    Both devices have received a same ports of entry/exit (e/s), the same interrupt, or the same Direct memory access channel (whether through BIOS, the operating system, or a combination of both). This error message may also appear if the BIOS did not allocate enough resources to the device (for example, if a (USB) universal serial bus controller does not get a break in the BIOS because of a damaged MPS (Multiprocessor) system table).
    You can use Device Manager to determine where the conflict is and turn off the device in conflict. On the tab General properties of the device, click Troubleshoot to start the Troubleshooting Wizard.
    Try disabling the features of conflict. It will be interesting to know if the problem will occur again.

    In my opinion, you should contact the Service partner and ask them if the unit is ready for the Wi - Fi module. Sorry, but I'm not sure about that and I don't want to give you a bad information about it.

  • Equium A60-157, problem after update BIOS 1.90

    Hi all!

    I've had my Toshiba Equium A60-157 for two months. I've updated the my bios twice. First of 1.70 to 1.8 C and from 1.8 to the current 1.90 (common at the time I made this post).

    I noticed that as soon as I used my recovery DVDs to restore the laptop to the default constructor, I had a problem with the main user account that is normally created after the completion of the recovery strategy.

    Whenever Windows would open a session after the recovery account generated, a popup would display a message similar to the following:

    "Windows can not load the profile and connects you with a temporary profile." No changes will be saved. "

    He also said that this problem was maybe due to incorrect permissions, or something like that. The pop-up window also contained a 30-second countdown before opening in windows with the temporary profile. As indicated by the pop-message no changes would be recorded. I could even change my user account image.

    I ran it again the DVD of recovery only to get the same problem. This NEVER happened when I ran on the original bios 1.70, bios recovery DVD AND 1.8 c.

    Anyway I came up with a solution to this problem, which only caused me no problem at the present time.

    I just logged into Windows mode without failure, entered the account administrator, created a new account and deleted the account of departure (created at the end of the recovery program).

    So far, the user account-wise, everything back to normal.

    If the recovery strategy or the bios did not cause this problem, I would be grateful if someone could give me some possibilities of doing just that.

    I don't want to get updates of bios from 5-10 down the road, only to find out that my recovery DVD does not work.

    Fact the DVD should be updated as well as the recovery bios?

    Thanks for your time.

    Hi, Conrad

    Can you please tell me why you do the updates to the BIOS? Have you had any problems? I use my unit for close to two years and I didn t make any BIOS update so far. If everything works well, it is not necessary to do an update with the exception of some Microsoft updates that make the OS more secure. Don t do any update if it is not necessary.

    In any case, I am very confused with your question. Normally, Recovery DVD should not be updated. The BIOS updates are useful if there is a hardware conflict or a problem and not a problem using the operating system or any software.

    It will be interesting to know why you're doing the recovery procedure each time after BIOS update.

  • Equium A60-157 - PCMCIA or USB WLan adapter

    I have an Equium A60-157 and you want to add a wireless adapter.
    Can someone advise me on a PCMCIA or USB adapter suitable for this model.


    It s indifferent if you buy a card PCMICA WLAN or WLAN USB stick.
    My opinion would be a USB key, because you can use it on a PC too.

    I put t have much experience with these WLAN sticks but I would buy one from the manufacturing of your router. For example, I have a router of AVM and a stick of AVM WLAN.
    So you can be sure that s has no problems because you have from different manufacturers.

    I hope I could help a bit.

  • Equium A60-157 will not power

    Hi people!

    Could someone offer a bit of expertise and tell me whether or not the series Equium A60 - 157 has a center pin in its socket? I need to know that my laptop doesn't have one and it will not power! I'm deeply frustrated because I paid at the time £999 and it doesn't work!

    I have a feeling that the PIN has cracked and is now part of my dc adapter but I need to be sure before I get it fixed!

    Also if this is the case anyone Kow how much it may cost to do fix an indicative maybe!

    Cheers for your help!


    Hi Nick,

    Yes, I think the A60 use an outlet that has a central pin. The CAP at the end of the head of the AC must have a central hole. You can find that the spindle broke and is now stuck in the plug on the power cord. This is not a rare event on the series of satellites, laptops.

    The bad is more Servicers will simply replace the motherboard (where the socket is together) rather than perform a repair to the component level. It is obviously a costly option for you, but is probably more faster/easier for the repairman.

    I have, in the past, tried unsuccessfully to find a source for the plug for my A30 (just in case) but I only managed to find a supplier who could provide a component of second hand provided by a junk motherboard. :-(

    Kind regards

  • Equium A60: message error "virtual memory is low.

    my daughter has a Toshiba Equium A60 for over a year (now off warranty of course) and had error messages saying that its virtual memory is low. This happens almost every time that she uses his computer now and it cannot open any of its requests at the moment.
    any ideas out there?

    Unless you are an experienced user, you should allow Windows to manage this setting for you. Your problem may occur if the default settings have been changed somehow. First to diagnose your problem, you must follow these steps to ensure that Windows runs properly your virtual memory settings.

    1. find out how virtual memory is managed. Right click on 'My Computer' and choose 'properties '. Click the Advanced tab, and then under Performance click settings.
    2. which opens your performance Options. Click the Advanced tab. For private users 'typical' Processor Scheduling & Memory use must be set to "programs".
    3. under virtual memory, click change.
    4. which opens the virtual memory options. If you have more than one hard drive, make sure that your primary hard drive is selected under "Drive".
    5. under "Paging File Size for selected device" check the box indicating the size of the managed system.
    6. click OK in all the 3 boxes to close off these settings and restart your computer

  • Power power on Equium A60-157 problem

    My father recently corrected this laptop for my children to use, but we are having big problems with the battery.

    When the laptop is plugged in and turned off the battery recharge, when I turn on the laptop, the battery is displayed on the status bar as hip system and load, but it actually reduced by about 4% per minute.
    If I remove the battery and try to run the laptop from the network, it won't work, and if I press the power button again to once, with no battery, turn off all the leds on the front.

    I tried to uninstall the ACPI using Device Manager and reinstalled, but it did not work
    I tried another battery, but that didn't work
    I tried cleaning the contacts, but it does not work
    I also tried to blow out the fan in the air (from below! I did not open the case again)

    Can anyone suggest what could be the cause of the problem, I can see, it is a common problem according to the various forums, but I can't find a cure yet.

    I have an another a60 - 157 of the spare parts, but a problem is suspected with the motherboard.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    > If I remove the battery and try to run the laptop from the network, it will not work
    It isn't okay mate
    Even if the battery is disconnected, the laptop needs functions related only to the power adapter too
    That is why I don't think its something wrong with the battery, but probably the motherboard is faulty.

    What to tell: A60 is old new motherboard would have costs a small fortune, not very well if you want to spend the money to get new motherboard in my opinion its worth it to buy the new notebook as to spend 200-300 for the new motherboard.
