Equium L40-156: graphics card problem - error code 12 in Device Manager

People of the night...

Just got a family run Vista premium, Equium L40-156, everything is going well except a little problem with the display adapter (Mobile Intel 965).

Tried the drivers that I had with the installer
Tried the drivers from the toshiba download page
Tried the drivers on the Microsoft Update site
Tried the drivers from the website of intel

All have the same problem, in Device Manager, it shows with an error (the pretty yellow triangle with the "!") with an error code 12 (the device cannot find enough free resources) even after a system resart.

Switching view hidden devices displays a 2nd same device, but works correctly, but the two disappear if I try to delete either.
Display settings do not display a connected device, DXDIAG had no idea either.

Latest version of the BIOS installed, all other devices are very good and can not see an IO overlap anywhere

Any suggestions, greatly appriciated




I have studied a little bit and looked on the Microsoft page for some answers and found out what exactly means the error code 12.

+ Error code 12 +.

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

+ Two devices are assigned the same i/o ports, 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 is not an interruption of the BIOS because of a corrupt MPS (Multiprocessor) system table). +

Well, what to say; usually this error message should not appear with the original Toshiba preinstalled operating system.
I put t know if you have changed something or add an additional device, but it would be very interesting to know if the same error message appears after the reinstallation of the OS.
You can use the Toshiba Recovery CD/DVD of restoration!

All the drivers, the tools are already preinstalled on the recovery CD so the entire procedure will not take very long. about 10 min.

Check this box and report if the same error is displayed on the laptop with the factory settings!

Good bye

  • Graphics cards GTX - 770M not detected in Device Manager


    My AW-18 does not correctly detect my GTX - 770 M (x 2) cards and display them in the Device Manager. What I see is that in the other devices section, there are two unknown devices listed, one of which I already know (not related). Any GTX cards appear in graphics cards.

    Also, when I try to install GeForce experience, I get an error saying that I don't have cards chart for this program. It allows to launch fine until today (December 15, 2014).

    This PC has a hard drive erasure and system reinstall in its history. It is possible that this point has been like that for this event.

    The Hardware Id info on the elements of the mystery are as follows:

    ACPI\VEN_SMO & DEV_8810
    * SMO8810

    So I guess I have two questions;

    (1) can you tell me what is this mystery device?

    (2) why can I not see my graphics card in Device Manager, despite all the usual activities like the search of new hardware, drivers, etc..

    Thank you


    Also note that I had already run the troubleshooter from Dell and it detected no problems.

    I found a solution myself.

    I looked at the BIOS settings by the F2 key at startup, and the only thing I could see I could try was to restore the default settings, so I did. My PC booted then up normally but for low resolution. Device Manager now showed two graphics cards, so I ran the installer of the latest GeForce drivers and the PC works now perfectly once more.

  • Re: Satellite L40-139 - 10 error code in the Device Manager on the wireless network card

    I have a toshiba satellite L40-139 and I just instaled windows 7 64 bit on it. Since that time my atheros wireless device will not work. I tried updating the driver and windows but nothing.
    In the device manager says code 10 DEVICE can NOT START.

    Help, please!

    Thank you!


    If you read here:


    The Code 10 error code is generated when the Device Manager has not enough information or error that spread upwards by device drivers is not recognized by Device Manager.
    Then, go to the page of the driver and update the driver. If you do not have to win 7, try the vista driver.

  • Error code 43 in Device Manager.

    I have a 43 error that keeps appearing and disappearing.  USB devices worked for a day then stopped working since.  It started sometime in March, and now they are not coming back.  The USB mouse lights up as if it was on and lights up when you move like its supposed to do but it still does not work.  The keyboard does nothing.  I am currently using a ps/2 keyboard.  I have a Windows 8 Inspiron 660 computer with a motherboard Asrock z77 pro4 and a gtx 275 graphics card.  Although my windows is not 'true' so to speak I bought it on its Web site.  I have also 2 monitors connected, one to the motherboard the other to the graphics card.  In Device Manager, the "unknown devices" are sometimes there and sometimes not.  So far, I have tried

    1. Uninstall the usb ports controllers.
    2. Download the latest drivers for my device.
    3. Update the computer several times.
    4. Unplug the unit and plug the usb devices.
    5. Plug my camera on other computers and they worked,
    6. Connect the other devices work in my computer that did not work.
    7. Thanks to the Fixit kit which does not work.

    I was wondering if I pay for support and it does not solve my problem I would get a refund or not.  I have also to documents on when usb devices worked.

    When the Board of Directors and the mouse worked it showed in Device Manager but the "unknown devices" is a not disappear, even if the keyboard and mouse were the only things connected.


    I just noticed that my "Standard Enhanced PCI to USB Host Controller" has an error of 45 and he said: it's not connect.  I don't know what this means, but it may be useful.

    -----------------------------------------------Other Information----------------------------------------------------

    It is an error 45 and he says its not connected, it seems important.

  • Equium P200 - wireless network card is not recognized or in Device Manager


    I recently bought a laptop computer used by my friend, an Equium P200
    I reinstalled Vista and downloaded the correct drivers and everything works fine apart from a Wi - Fi connection.

    I took on the key board and checked that the mini pci card in properly installed and even tried it exchanged for another

    Hey Buddy,

    What of your OS (operating system)?
    No info on this subject? ... Why?

    In your case, I'll try this:
    Remove the old webcam driver and reboot the laptop.
    Run CCleaner to clean the registry and Windows
    Stop and try again
    Install the latest driver from the Toshiba page.
