For Satellite Pro M70 boot sequence
Issues related to the:
1. What is the default setting for the boot to the Satellite Pro M70 sequence?
2. What is the procedure for changing the boot during the start-up phase sequence?
3. What is the most 'sensitive' boot sequence, with & without an attached external floppy drive?
Well, I'm not 100% sure but I think the default start setting is:
However, you can set and change parameters in the Toshiba HWSetup that is located in Control Panel.
Just FYI: by pressing a key during POST, you can choose the boot device.
D - default system
U USB FDD
1 - disc HARD bed
2 - slim select bay (if available) HDD
C - CD rom
N - network LAN
P - PC HDD (PCMCIA) card
But these options are not always available.
I want to buy a block of cooling for my laptop Satellite Pro M70-220 (PSM75E) and would appreciate advice and recommendations on the most appropriate cooling pad. Plateau broken down to use the desktop, rather that the tower would use.
The dimensions of the base of the laptop are about 34.5 cm (W) x 24 cm (P) - (or 13.5 ins (W) x 9.5 ins (D)).
The laptop has 2 vents in fan - a vent is located on the left side (half back) of the laptop, and other the vent is located on the left side of the base in line with the side wind. Subject to correction, I feel that the cold air is sucked through the vent base and is blown through the vent on the left side. If that is correct, then I guess the cooling pad fan would blow air on the basis of the laptop, thus completing the airflow of the computer laptop cooling fan.
Before starting to discuss cooling pad, I want to ask you why you need. I have Satellite M70-159 and have never even think to buy this extra part.
Have you ever watched on the net and found something that may be good enough for you?
I want to upgrade my satellite Pro M70-220 portable HARD drive the current 60 GB HDD to a 160 GB HARD drive and you drive would be grateful if someone could provide information on the standard/type of HARD drive I should like being looking for and, if possible, specific manufacturer's recommendations and the model number of an appropriate 160 GB of disk HARD.
The laptop uses a simple 2.5 SATA HDD.
It's not really important what the speed of the HARD drive is supported, but I recommend to use the 5400 RPM or faster 7200 RPM HARD drive
Generally all HARD drive size should be compatible because the SATA controller has no limitations.
I need memory paged to my Lotus Symphony programs.
But it does not work in this PSM75E-009005DU Toshiba Satellite Satellite Pro M70 with Windows XP.
On my desktop with XP, it works... I can set it up in preferences shortcut on the screen.
If you want to upgrade the memory?
As far as I know, Satellite Pro M70 PSM75E was equipped with different processors and chipsets for upgrade memory can depends on model that you bought
But I think you could increase the RAM up to 2 GB of RAM.
You can use the modules of 533 Mhz 200pin 2 x 1 GB of RAM.
How do you know if there are any updates available for the Toshiba drivers and utilities provided with my Satellite Pro M70 (PSM75), the Date of Production - January 27, 2006, and which are in the folder Toolscd (C:\ ToolsCD) on my laptop?
Is there an update Service that recommend updates available for download?
I checked the list of available downloads on the download page of the site of Toshiba UK ([http://uk.computers.toshiba-europe.com/cgi-bin/ToshibaCSG/download_drivers_bios.jsp?service=UK]), for the satellite Pro M70 (PSM75) and compared the version numbers of downloads, against the same drivers & Utilities version numbers in the file Toolscd (C:\) ToolsCD) on my laptop (IE in the XML TVersion files), and they are exactly the same, even for 16 drivers and utilities with a "Date last modified" on January 17, 2006 or newer (with new - August 1, 2008)
The only real update which seems to be offered as a download, is the update of the BIOS v1.50 - WIN (in the BIOS downloads), with a 'last modified Date' of August 7, 2007, for which there is no equivalent in the Toolscd folder.
You can also check this page for the latest updates, as appropriate:
http://EU.computers.Toshiba-Europe.com (Support & downloads)
I don't think that there is any tool, which continues to tell you that there are new updates available. For Windows, it is clear, that you can use the Windows Update feature. It has some function implemented tools can look for hardware drivers too.
But for the rest, just keep on visiting the above mentioned page from time to time.
In any case, if your computer works fine, you will not need any update.
Is anyone know the upgrades available to change the standard 60GB hard drive in the Satellite Pro M70 (PSM76E-00100KEN) with something bigger.
The Toshiba Options site shows only optionally available external hard drives, but noticed that the newer models of the same family have between 80 and 100 GB discs, so I asked if any of these would correspond, for example:
PSM75E-00P004EN uses a 100 GB drive
PSM76E-00500KEN uses a 80 GB drive
You can also all drives available from other sources that might be suitable - what spec should I look, speed, installation size, connections etc. and BIOS compatibility
All the info appreciated, surprising how fast the disk fills up, and I would like to keep in-house, although I also use an external drive of 250 GB for home storage and backups etc.
The Satellite Pro M70 series is great, but I think that every m70 must support a HARD drive with serial - ATA interface.
Some units have been delivered with a 80 GB HARD drive. In my view, that a 100 GB HARD drive should also work.
I found a few properties of the HARD drive:
Rotating disk: 5400 RPM
Buffer size: 8 MB
Number of discs: 2
Number of Heads: 4
Hello everyone. I would like to know if there are and where I can download updated device driver for my Satellite Pro M70 (PSM 75-E) mass storage. I tried searching but I found nothing.
All other drivers are ok. Infact for audio drivers I used the Xp one and it's ok. The only one who is not installed is a 'mass storage device' I think it's for multireader memory card. Can someone help me? There is a way to install the Xp drivers as for any other material?
Thanks for any response.
Driver Toshiba page provides all the Vista for the Satellite Pro M70 drivers!
Only the BIOS and driver Vista BT's are available for this laptop.
I checked the XP section and Cardbus driver and Chip Set Utility are available.
I guess that these two applications are required.
I m do not know if you will be able to install these utilities on Vista, but a train is free.
If the two applications will not work I guess you have to refrain from the use of the reader of memory card on Vista.
There was an update of the bios that is specially designed for Vista... = bios-vista - 510win.zip on the Toshiba site...
Although my Satellite Pro M70-113 did not support the default TPM module (BIOS verson 1.1, I always have this), is it possible that this update includes the TPM secure to enable bitlocker on vista?
Can someone check and confirm please... :)
And secondly, is configuration BIOS update for Windows utility saves the current state of the BIOS in some external as backup media, while if it happens with the process of update... the previous version can be restored in return?
And a BIOS may be downgraded?
(1.) I m not 100% sure but I think the new BIOS for the M70 does not support the TPM secure. I read somewhere that all BIOS versions that support TPM on Toshiba laptops cannot be updated by a common user, but the user must contact the authorized Toshiba service provider for these updates.
That's why I think that Toshiba would not any BIOPS version by download issue if this BIOS would support the TPM.
2.) now something about the second question:
The new BIOS version replaces the old BIOS and BIOS States and to my knowledge it of not possible to save the settings for a backup more later.
Generally, you must be careful with any update of the BIOS. Bad BIOS or bad update procedure may damage the jury!
I lost my system restore disc for my Satellite Pro M70.
If anyone can help with possible solutions. I want to restore it for my sister to take to College.
Well you can take the Microsoft Windows disk and can install windows by using the original Microsoft disc. All the necessary drivers and tools are placed on the European driver Toshiba page.
I think you will not be able to order this disc of the local ASP or on this site https://backupmedia.toshiba.eu/landing.aspx because the M70 is a little older
So the real solution can be an installation of the OS by using MS Win drive
I need another 512 MB ram module for my Satellite Pro M70-137. But I don't know what kind of SODIMM he uses, I mean it's 144 pine or 200 pin DDR2 PC2 -?.
This unit was delivered with a module of memory DDR 512 MB and 2 slots.
I found some interesting information it is possible to upgrade the memory for max 2048 MB (2x1024Mo).
I also found a memory modules support.
DDR2 400/533 256 MB (PA3389U - 1 M 25)
512 MB DDR2-400/533 (PA3412U - 1 M 51)
1 GB OF DDR2 400/533 (PA3411U-1M1G)
Hope this info will help you.
I just bought a Satellite Pro M70 Centrino Mobile 750 to replace my Satellite 5105 - S702, which exposes the same type of problems of corruption/crash video display described elsewhere in these forums.
I need an external floppy drive, and the site of the Toshiba shop specifies an external USB Floppy Drive Ref. PA3109E-3FDD.
However, I have an external drive USB Floppy, Réf. PA3109U-1FDD, I bought for the satellite 5105-S702 about 4 years ago.
5105-S702 has USB 1.1 ports and satellite Pro M70 has USB2 ports.
Issues related to the:
PA3109U-1FDD will work with the satellite Pro M70?
There are likely to be problems of compatibility, driver issues or any probability/possibility of damage to the Sat ProM70?
Would appreciate any advice.
I really don? t know why you ask if the floppy drive will not work. Why you don? t he try? As far as I know, it should work and you should not buy a new one.
Just for info: a few months ago, I saw the Toshiba FDD drives with part number PX? And these drives are not bootable but on the lower side, there is a label with this information.
Anyway, you can use your other more ancient. According to the specification tested for MS M70 is FDD Drive Kit PA3109U-1FDD (your one).
I hope someone can help me! I have a Satellite Pro M70 purchased in England about 2 years ago. The full model is PSM76E-00100KEN. I installed a new copy of WXP Pro on the laptop, but as I don't always have the recovery CD I know I just need to download some drivers from this site - mainly the display driver.
My problem is, I don't know what my video card, I know its an ATI one. The other problem is that when I look in the downloads on this site - the M70 or PSM76E etc is not in one, current models or archives.
I would be really grateful if anyone can help in pointing me to the drivers I need.
Of course, it is listed. Check a little better. According to the specifications of the laptop, your laptop comes with the ATI graphics card.
I have had this PC for a few months now and I was disappointed to hear that my drivers are WAY outdated. The only drivers I can find are here and they are only something v.8 (although the game reads this as an older version).
The problem comes when I want to play games like Half Life 2 and CSS, the game crashes because these drivers are up-to-date. Where can I get the LATEST drivers for the ATI Mobility Radeon x 700 for the Toshiba M70 Pro card?
You can check the different graphics drivers form the papers that were delivered with the same graphic card as your Satellite M70 Pro.
Further, you can view different websites which also offers some graphics drivers, for example the site omegadrivers.net.
According to several threads here in the forum of the graphics driver installation non-Toshiba is at your own risk!
Help me!! I'm looking for driver for BACK Bios M70. Does not exist, only for windows and my cell phone is dead.
Bad news, because after 3 minutes, stop!
So I have only one solution (with the diskette bootable cd).
So I need the dos version of the Bios
This version is not available on the official support page so only one chance to get it is to contact Toshiba service nearest and ask for help.
Sorry, but I don't see another option for traditional BIOS.
Hello! First post here, happy to join :)
So, here is my question:
I have a laptop M70 and want to upgrade the memory from 512 MB to 1 GB. I checked Toshiba online store and found that in fact 2 memory of 512 MB with the same characteristics (512 MB PC2-4300 DDR2 533 MHz) are supposed to do the job...
The only difference is that the PA3412U - 1 M 51 is mentioned as "dual channel" and the PA3412U - 2M 51 is "RoHS compl.
So, what is the good? Another problem is that I can not really get any of these two because the first one is "sold out" and the second is 'exhausted '! Laughing out loud
But finding the correct for my system is a good first step, in my opinion. Thanks in advance! ;)
In this unit are 2 slots available and you can upgrade the memory for max 2048 MB (2x1024Mo). You can use DDR2 memory modules.
I found information on the modules of memory support
DDR2 400/533 256 MB (PA3389U - 1 M 25)
512 MB DDR2-400/533 (PA3412U - 1 M 51)
1 GB OF DDR2 400/533 (PA3411U-1M1G)
I would recommend to google for this part numbers and I m you will find an online store that offers this module.
