    Toshiba Satellite A200/S01 PSAF6A-06S01N
    I need help to determine which driver I need to install to control the SATA hard drive.

    Because many know that the SATA drives will not work when installing Windows XP, Windows XP does not have drivers for this type of hard drive.

    I have located on drivers site Web for hard disk for a toshiba XP machine, but I am unable to determine which driver to install (list of 15 when I load floppy)? or it doesn't work because the machine was installed with vista?

    Is it possible to match a HDD to the pilot?

    I formatted the hard drive, xp installation disc is xp pro with Service Pack 2.

    I hope someone could help me because it makes me crazy ready to give up and reinstall vista on the machine


    The SATA drivers are part of the Intel Matrix Storage Manager.
    There are a lot of discussions on this subject.

    I found these two Toshiba HowTo that describes step by step how to do:

    + How to integrate the AHCI driver during the installation of Windows XP.

    + How to integrate a SATA AHCI driver into a Windows XP Setup CD.

    Seems the Satellite A200/S01 PSAF6A-06S01N belongs to the Australian series of Toshiba.
    Drivers of this laptop are on the Toshiba on THE page but you can also download the Storage Manager Intel from the page of the European driver Toshiba or Intel page because the hardware is the same.

  • Installation of Windows XP on Satellite Pro P200

    Hi guys,.

    I have a problem installing Windows XP Home SP2 (listen Slip) edition in my new Satellite Pro P200 with 2-120 GB hard drives. The vehicle currently has windows vista professional. I followed this link to a similar question on this site: FullName = Windows * + XP + Professional & lang = eng & strOSs = 44 & submit = Go % 21 and created disk Intel Matrix Storage manager so that I could use "F6" to install the RAID drivers during the installation of XP.

    I got to the point where I was able to recognize the hard drive and I was able to select the partition where I wanted to install WXP. Once the NTFS partition has been selected and formatted, Windows XP Home edition Setup prompted me to insert "Intel Matrix Storage" diskette into the A: drive. I have this drive in my floppy USB drive.

    However he didn't even read the disc. Hard drive never turned on when I pressed the enter"" key. It seemed as if the installer froze, however I was able to push "F3" to exit the installation program. Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong here? Is the USB problem?

    Help, please!

  • Installation of Windows XP on Satellite Pro L300D-136


    I realize that this question is very similar to those posed elsewhere on these forums. I tried after the solutions proposed elsewhere but were unable to do anything at work.

    I'm trying to install XP Pro on a Satellite Pro L300D 136, which is currently under Vista.

    I tried to get into the BIOS and change SATA compatibility mode, but I still get a blue screen of death when booting from the installation disc. Reading elsewhere on the forums, that I understand that I have to use nlite to include drivers SATA on the installation CD, I'm not sure how to find out what drivers I need. Number of threads talking about MSM from Intel, but my machine has an AMD Athlon processor. Does make a difference? Where can I find the necessary drivers in the download section of Toshiba?

    Thank you in advance for your help, this is the first time I tried to replace a windows with another OS...

    Yes, it makes a difference.

    For laptops equipped with AMD processor (they don t have an Intel chipset) you need the display driver.
    In the display driver package are the SATA drivers you need.
    You can find it on the Toshiba site: decision-making supported Downloads & => Download drivers

  • Installation of Windows XP on Satellite Pro L20

    Hi all!

    My problem is with a Satellite Pro L20.

    My hard drive broke so I replaced it. Now, when I try and install windows xp pro on the new hard drive, it does nothing. First of all, I put the disk it starts to load and say to support on enter to launch xp installation, R to repair windows or F2 to exit but when I press ENTER, nothing happens if I press R, it starts to look for windows in order to repair, but no windows system cannot be found because it s not been installed but know someone or have any good suggestions on how to get windows installed.

    Any information would be most appreciated.

    I could also just add that when the computer starts first and it s on the first boot of the bit with the Toshiba logo we have 2 options F2 and F12, none of them work when I press them and also when I pressed r in the window xp installation you should be able to type exit, and then enter to leave but some type of keys and some don't but be4 just broken hard drive it typed very well no problem, if it is the problem cos I can't press on enter how fist to solve the problem of keyboard?

    Thank you once more for the reading of my problem.
    Kind regards

  • Installation of Windows ME on Satellite Pro L20

    I need for the program to install windows Millennium Edition on my new laptop, but when he starts (during the installation procedure) search for devices it crushes and just stop.
    What can I do? I tried to update the BIOS but still the same after.

    I really put t know what you can do, but I really don t understand why you buy the laptop latest designed to the latest operating system available on the market and then try to use the older operating system. I hope you know that there is no support for older OS.

    In my opinion, much better and cheaper option is to buy second hand laptop and install the earlier operating system. With more Ram, the older unit will run fantastic.

    The second problem are the drivers and Toshiba tools that work well with me. Where you find them? You won't find them on the official download page of Toshiba.

    In any case, good luck and I hope that someone already try to install ME on the same unit.

    Good bye

  • Satellite Pro L40 - 15A - Windows XP screen white when the cover is open


    So when I closed the lid on my laptop for a while and then reopen the lid, the screen remains white (black). The only way I found to get back on the screen is to re-boot.
    In power management, I put 'Status quo' for when I close the lid on my computer and power management is ' Always on '.

    I have the latest Bios and updates to the system.

    Satellite Pro L40 - 15A

    Any help appreciated.

    Hi ib1.

    You use the version preinstalled Windows from Toshiba or is it your own installation?

    What to update the display driver? Take a look at the Toshiba page for the new display driver: > support & downloads > download drivers

    Don t forget to look in the * archives * on Toshiba page because this model is a little older, so all of the downloads are moved in archive.

  • Satellite Pro L40 - sound after installing Windows XP SP3 driver


    I bought the Satellite Pro L40 about 6 months ago and the speed of the laptop is too slow with windows Vista. So I decided to install an old copy of windows XP that I had purchased earlier. I updated the windows SP3 installation before installing the drivers.

    Now, all the drivers have been installed correctly except the audio driver. I downloaded the XP version of the driver on the toshiba site, but it did not work. So I though that maybe the vista version would work, so I downloaded that. But that no longer works.

    Can someone suggest a solution where I can get the audio driver to work? Preferably without having to get the reinstalled windows again.

    Please help me...!

    Thank you

  • Installation of WXP Pro on Satellite Pro L40-15 has


    Just got a Satellite Pro L40 - 15A, its currently got vista home on that and I'll have a go at put WXP Pro on it. Anyone who has tried this? First thing that I'm doing, is integrate the SATA drivers in Windows XP Home edition with nlite. Got Intel Matrix storage drivers which I assume are the right ones. One else you have that works? Also, I've seen there are a few updates to the BIOS, anyone put these yet? Are these worth it, updated the BIOS always makes me nervous!

    See you soon

    It doesn´t matter which model, because you can use the users for EACH model installation instructions. So, just pick up all the necessary drivers and install XP as the guy described it.
    I did it on a Satellite A100 and it works like a charm. :)

  • Satellite Pro L40 - cannot install Windows XP

    Material: Satellite Pro L40, HDD 80 GB, 1.5 GB of RAM

    Software: Windows XP + SP2 install CD, floppy disk with AHCI HDD ICH8M_32bit drivers drivers created according to the instructions in "how to install Windows XP on a L40.pd"f of Toshiba (which is pretty outdated by the way!)

    Problem: The start is fine, after pressing F6 quick to add drivers is very good, set up windows starts.
    Then I get this message on the screen: insert the disc labeled "Intel Matrix Storage Manager" in the A: drive. Press ENTER when you are ready.
    This is not mentioned in the installation instructions.

    Well, I don't have a disc labeled like that. I only have the disk that I created according to the instructions in the PDF above.
    It is already in the drive, so I press ENTER and nothing happens.

    My only other option is to quit smoking. Tried to quit smoking and going through the whole process several times - always eventually return to this impasse.


    Can anyone help? Please?

    I think that you have made a mistake, because I never have problems to use the SATA drivers.
    Have you tried to do the floppy drive with the drivers and where did you download the drivers? Maybe you should try to download again on the Toshiba site: decision-making supported Downloads & => Download drivers

    And have you tried to create your own with the drivers installation disk? You can do this with nLite for example. I prefer this because that is why I n t need an external floppy drive.
    It s worth a try! ;)

  • Satellite Pro L40 - 17F: everything by playing the DVD player window flickers

    I have a new Toshiba Satellite Pro L40 - 17F with all the updates of Windows Vista (Home) applied. This includes those optional (for example driver updates)

    I came to be used for the first time (outside the application of windows update) and play a movie. The player (not the controls, just the player) window flashing continuously, even on the menu screens. It almost seems that the film was shot with an old film camera and is played on a projector.

    I have not really looked at it properly yet, but I wonder if this is a common problem...

    Someone at - he had the same thing? What about a solution?

    See you soon

    Not easy to say that this could be what software do you use?

  • Satellite Pro L40 - after upgrade to Windows 7, the FN keys do not work

    Hello world

    I have a Satellite Pro L40 PSL4BE and have just upgraded to Windows 7. Since the upgrade I can no longer use the function key and the top and down arrows to control the volume. Keys F6 F7 & still control the brightness so I don't know the function key still works.

    Anyone know if it is a driver problem or nobody knows how to solve this problem?

    Thank you



    You need to install the package of value added for Satellite Pro L40. This package contains all the necessary drivers for the FN keys. Then please install or update VAP if you have already installed an earlier version.
    Here you can download: > support & downloads > download drivers

    Can you confirm that FN keys work with installed VAP?
