How can I enable Satellite Pro L770 in a Wi - Fi hootspot?
Please can someone tell me how to turn my laptop into a wifi hotspot using the mobile wifi dongle I have?
I can get online with the laptop perfectly but I would use it as a point of interest for other devices (mobile phones) - is it possible?
> I can get online with the laptop perfectly...
You can get is through WLAN or LAN connectivity?
I mean if you use connectivity WLAN you can directly connect other devices on WIFI source (router).
I just took delivery of a "Toshiba Satellite Pro A200GE-1F9 - Core 2 Duo T7300 2 GHz - 15.4"TFT".» Great laptop, but the operating system is very slow... transfer files, access to the internet.
I understand that the license allows me to downgrade to XP. The question is how can I do this, because this operating system is not ready for the technology on my laptop.
1 Toshiba provide me with a XP OS disk?
2 Toshiba provide me with new XP drivers for my laptop?
3. I have trouble with XP recognizing my hard drive due to the SATA drives.
Vista is useless because it does so not. Even Microsoft are allowing users to downgrade - please see below.
Here are a few notes I found on the web
Can I downgrade my OEM of Windows version
Vista business to Windows XP Professional? Yes. Right of demotion OEM desktop operating systems PC apply to Windows Vista business and Windows Vista Edition full, as stated in the terms of the license. Please note, downgrade versions OEM Windows Vista business and Windows Vista Ultimate are limited to Windows XP Professional (including Windows XP Edition Tablet PC and Windows XP x 64 edition). End users can use the following media for their downgrade: Volume Licensing media (provided that the end-user has a Volume License Agreement), trade retail (FPP) or System Builder hologram CD (provided that the software is acquired in accordance with the Microsoft OEM System Builder License). Use of degraded operating system is governed by the Windows Vista Business license terms, and the end user cannot use the downgrade and professional Windows Vista operating system. There is no right of demotion for Windows Vista Home Basic or Windows Vista Edition Home Premium.
If you want Windows XP Pro on a new machine, Windows Vista (Business or Ultimate), and then downgrade
I don't know how many people is aware of this, but if you buy a Windows Vista Business or Ultimate then you can use a Windows XP CD (that you have legal access to) to load Windows XP on this machine.
When you need the product key / or need to activate, it will potentially fail, but a simple call to with your Vista product key activation center should give you all the details you need. Then, when you're ready to put Vista on this machine, you can do without the purchase of this new cost. Alternatively, you can buy Windows XP today and if you want to load Vista, you can give more money to a store for a copy again.
For more information, go to http://oem.microsoft.com/script/sites/public/licensing.htm
First of all thanks for the information on the downgrade of the OEM of Windows version.
I bought my Satellite with Vista and it would be nice that I would get a XP for free.
But to be honest I'm not really sure if Microsoft will activate Win XP after buying the Vista operating system. But who knows, maybe you should say with the support of Microsoft.
To my knowledge, you will not get any additional operating system from Toshiba, but only the Toshiba Recovery CD.
Each Toshiba laptop has been delivered with the recovery CD that contains the Microsoft operating system (XP or Vista), drivers Toshiba and utilities.
That's all. If you lose the recovery CD, you can order the same CD/DVD with the same operating system of the authorized Toshiba service provider!
But like I said above, a retirement details you should specify it with MS is supported.
If you get more information from MS, please report it here in this thread. It s interesting theme.
How can I enable the memory remapping in BIOS (5.90) on my laptop?
It seems a problem with the Microsoft 32-bit Windows operating system.
Please check this:
You can find this info:
I put in the memory 2x2gb in my book * and the BIOS * and the operating system is worth about 3 GB
This is a limitation of the 32-bit system.
System resources need of addressing which overlaps physical memory below 4 GB.
These requirements can reduce available addressable memory space to and reported by the operating system
I try to send a wake up message to LAN (WOL) on my laptop to propel to the top.
I failed to make it work.
But I do not see a strange thing happening: when I send a magic packet WOL while my laptop is running, the laptop restarts automatically after closing down.
It seems that the Magic Packet is stored somewhere (perhaps in the NIC?) and is activated once the cell phone is off. I think a magic packet must be ignored when a machine has already begun and not be recorded and executed after the PC is turned off again.
That being said, I did a test with another PC; I am able to send a magic packet via my business network. So the problem isn't somewhere else. But the BIOS of my Toshiba laptop does not pick up when the machine is off. Only when it is already running.
Is this a bug and this bug can be resolved?
PS I have the latest version of the BIOS (v2.30) and I activated the Wake Up on LAN in the BIOS.

According to the Toshiba driver page, the last BIOS update was 09/03/12 and I doubt that this new version of BIOS which will be released in the future. The Satellite Pro L770 series is already discontinued.
However, as far as I know the reactivation of the LAN option can be found in the properties of the LAN card.
Go to Device Manager-> LAN card-> properties-> Advanced tab
Here, you should check if the WOL is enabled.
By the way: the network driver seems to be Realtek. I recommend you update the driver of network directly from the page of the Realtek driver. I know that WOL is controlled at the level of the BIOS, but I think the update is worth a try.
I have a Satellite Pro L770 - 14H and you want to use a Bluetooth mouse.
With the 'FN' and F8 key I am capable of coding between WLAN and Bluetooth, but it is not possibel to have both at the same time.
My question is: How can I have WLAN and Bluetooth at the same time?
To use a Bluetooth mouse with WLAN connection.
Thank you very much
Using Win 8.1?
Usually you could turn on and off Bluetooth in Win 8.1
Settings PC-> PC &-> of Bluetooth devices
There, you can move the cursor to BT for THE position.
I have a portable Satellite Pro L770-11F recently delivered to me in the context of an insurance claim. It has an AR9002WB - 1NG Wireless Atheros adapt 7 is running Windows 7 Pro 64 bit.
The problem that I am facing is when I download a file from the internet, it stops at random points & is unable to complete the download.
I can't tell when it happens or how it goes as nothing comes on the screen to tell me any problem. Sometimes I find that even if the PC is always connected to the router (D - Link DIR-615 & only 6 feet from the PC) the map only shows theres no connection to internet even if my Xbox is connected & my phone connects.
What makes it more rare is that if I connect to the router via an ethernet cable it never is de-energized & download the files without any problems
The files I download are various sizes of 350 MB to 3 GB, but it seems to do more on files larger than 500 MB so im thinking it's a matter of time/timer or a problem of size of file (wireless only, not connected by cable)
I had a laptop before it & it worked fine & I have never experienced this problem never
I changed the power management settings in the option ncpa.cpl & bang as far as I can tell that the drivers are up to date. I'm sure it's a matter of PC and not my internet & hopefully this week I can you confirm that by connecting to an internet friends & see if the same thing happens.
Any help would be greatly appreciated I have about 14 days left before I can send it to the supplier for an Exchange if it's a hardware problem.
Thank you very much
You said that the Wlan driver is updated, but I recommend you also check Toshiba Wlan portal and compare Wlan driver versions.
Here you can find the latest version of the driver.
You should also check the Microsoft power management settings.
There is an option for the WLan to save the power of the dough.
I recommend to disable this option for better performance.
Last but not least, you can check and play with the options that are in
-> Wlan card device manager-> properties-> Advanced tab
Good luck, hope this can be a little help
I recently rebuilt a Toshiba Satellite Pro L770-149 with windows 7 64 bit, when I installed first the operating system, all the drivers were missing so I installed all of the correct drivers and had run as it was before. Form Apart wireless connectivity,
It can connect through the ethernet cable and wireless (Fn + F8) is enabled.
Device Manager, it shows that all the drivers are correct and functional.
The icon in the taskbar just like a Red Cross, unless I connect the etheret cable.
Thanks in advance for any help
I think that support for laptop AR9285 WLan Atheros 802.11(b/g/n chip).
Have you seen the Atheros Wlan card in Device Manager?
If so, the WiFi card driver is correctly installed and if you have enabled the wireless network adapter using the FN + F8, then you should be able to configure the WiFi network.
To do this, you must go to control panel-> Network & Sharing Center-> (left) choose manage wireless networks
Now choose Add-> manually create a network profile
Here, you can configure the WiFi using the SSID network and other options needed.
Satellite Pro L770 does not start after flashing the BIOS to version 1.3 and install the latest version of Toshiba Service station.
According to the repair of the Windows system, the c:\windows\system32\drivers\tvalz_o.sys is damaged.
Where can I find a new driver for tvalz_o.sys intact?
I tried to repair using repair windows system, but failed.
The autoinstall tool would provide a solution for my problem?
I think that the TVALZ.sys file is part of the Toshiba value added package.
This package is released for Win 7 as well regarding the old Win Vista.
I think you should try to reinstall this package
You will find this software on the Toshiba UE driver page.
My computer laptop ist a Satellite Pro L770-144 and the ist IO 8 Pro 64-bit Windows.
The SD Card Reader recognize the cards. I had installed the controller with the 6.1.7600.30126 Version Realtek card reader a Windows 8.
But the cards are not recognized.
In Windows 7 it? works.
Does anyone have an idea?
Greetings and thanks
Card reader is properly recognized in Device Manager?
If it is not recognized, then you used a bad driver.
If its recognized, the driver has been installed correctly and there is another reason why SD cards cannot be used.
As far as I know the Satellite Pro L770 card reader manages different types of cards with different sizes.
SD: 8 MB - 2 GB
SDHC: 4GB - 32 GB
SDXC: 64 GB
Memory stick: 128MB - 256 MB
Memory Stick Pro: 512 MB - 2 GB
xD Card: No.
Mini SD: 8MB - 2 GB
Micro SD: 8MB - 2 GB
As you can see the compatible SD card: 8 MB 2 GB
It seems more large SD cards only are NOT supported.
I have a portable Satellite Pro L770 running Windows 7. My problem is that when my mobile broadband is de-energized my mouse freezes and I can only close by using the "stop" key as CTRL/ALT/DEL will not work in closing the program.
Any ideas anyone?
But if you n t mobile use in wide band, everything is OK, right?
Do you use the touch pad or external mouse?
I bought the laptop Satellite Pro L770 - 14N PSK3TE. I installed a clean version of windows 7 ultimate, but I can't find any drivers for this model.
For example,--> on page dowbload toshiba, is the required WLAN driver not in the download section.
I have dl the driver from Atheros page.
Find all the drivers, but we're missing in Device Manager.
Is a driver package available?
The Toshiba European driver page seems to provide all Win 7 64 bits of the Satellite PSK3TE L770 Pro series drivers.
The WLan drivers can be downloaded here:
This is the official Portal of Toshiba WLan and there you can also find Atheros Wlan driver.
I've got Satellite Pro P100. How to connect this laptop to stereo
It's probably easy, but what I can say... Call me stupid.
I have head that comes out of the headphone jack, it connects to my friendly hifi.
Ill be there is a unpleasant hissing in the background. Trying to hook up my boys in head mp3 player, and that works very well.
Any chance of some help... Thank you
To my knowledge, you can connect the satellite Pro P100 to HiFi only via a cable 2 RCA Audio Y adapter. To my knowledge the laptop doesn't support the S/PDIF audio output so you only to use an analog audio port.
You can also buy a stereo adapter with 2 x cinch sockets to connect the laptop to the stereo. This card can be plugged into the headset jack
Check this box:
I think you should visit the nearest dealer of portable. It can show you the right and taken in charge of cables and adapters.
Yesterday I received my new toshiba, and since then, I can't connect to any wifi network. My model is the Satellite Pro L770. So I can find many networks, but when I try to connect to one of them, the connection fails:
-My home network, which is of WPA/TKIP. I enter the password, and after several seconds, I have an error reported, with very little information about the causes.
-A public network (free, a french access provider), which should actually connect and redirect me to an authentication page. But in this case, I have limited access and if I try to connect to google, I have a DNS problem, so I can't use public network too. Here, I get an IP address, but no gateway, it's maybe normal that I'm not sure.
I must say that I have an Android phone with which I can connect to my own wifi. I tried to unplug, in order to avoid any conflict of IP, but the result is the same. My machines are ready DHCP, and my router has active DHCP mode.
Any help would be much appreciated.
Have you tried updating the driver WLAN and wireless network card appear correctly in Device Manager? You can download the latest WLAN driver on Toshiba WLAN official Portal:
Satellite L770 is brand new model mobile phone, so there is not a lot of discussion about it here in the forum. What you can also do is disabling feature of wireless network adapter in the power management Windows for each power of energy saving profile.
I hope that helps! :)
How can I enable disable Activity Manager?
The activity Manager records all interactions between Thunderbird and your e-mail in one place provider. There is no guesswork more. Just look in one place to see what's going on with your email.
Activity Manager allows you to follow more closely what is happening in the system and what activities are currently performed (for example, synchronization of folders offline IMAP, download new POP messages). The info in the status bar may appear and disappear quickly sometimes before able to read, but the info is displayed in the Manager activity.
Useful in the audit of what has occurred and are auto stocks. This can help in the troubleshooting section.
It appears if you select 'Tools' > 'the activity Manager.
Thus, it is not something that suddenly arises every two minutes to annoy the user.
The journal is deleted whenever you leave Thunderbird or you can clear the log manually.
"Tools" > "activity Manager".
Click on the button 'clear list '.
This is an unusual request to stop the activity of logging as a background process and the only way to check what activity account has or has not occurred.
I have searched and checked preferences to see if it could be turned off, but nothing helped.
