    You use Windows XP or Vista?

    For Vista, you must install the package of value added.
    For XP, you must install the Hotkey utility.

    I have a version of windows xp to my my old laptop, but I can't install it, at the beginning of the instalation xp dosent recognize my drive sata hard
    I know that I nedded a floopy with drivers, but it's not portable did obtain no floppy drive!
    How can I install windows xp on that laptop! ???

    Most tried to make a version of win xp with drivers with nlite sata, but it did not work!


    I recommend the other discussions of the forum on the same topic.
    Found this one for example:

    You need to install the Intel Matrix storage manager before proceeding with the installation of XP.
    As the user above has already suggested the program called nLite can be useful to integrate the necessary driver for the XP CD.

    A question: have you installed the Intel Matrix Storage Manager Manager?
    Please note that this IMSM is needed to install the Vista or XP on the laptop.

    The package of Robson (including the IMSM) for Vista was published on the Toshiba page.
    If you need the IMSM for XP please download from the Intel site and install it by pressing the F6 key during the installation procedure.
    To install this driver, you will need an external USB FDD drive!

  • Installing the program on HDD internal 2 on the Satellite A200 - 28 p

    Hello world

    Can someone help me? My pc has 3 discs apparently (this is a Satellite A200 - 28 p) and when I do a disk defragment it says that there are 3 a windows and c and d. Now, my query is can I install programs on the d drive I have recovery discs so guess that means that this drive is empty, as says that there 91.5 GB free of 91.6 Go.

    Does that mean so I can install programs on there, as have a print program of photo that is large enough and would be helpful if could install and a few other programs that use everyday, but like here when needed, on this other drive leaving my C drive for my Sims 2 games stuff and the stuff of Vista by default so that was a great help here before asking if everyone help me out my technical skills are basically could :-(zéro

    But I'm willing to learn, and as it says this laptop comes with a think that means 120 GB HDD can use either but I wanted to check before tried anything that either don't want to take the risk of ruin if it's a recovery drive and not a single one of my personal programs.

    Thank you so much to anyone who can help me with this question that wish had more technical knowledge.

    Debbie (Simreaper)

    Hi Debbie,.

    I don't know what you mean to have three readers, it is indeed very strange for display in the Defragmenter, so for now will be only concerns on your C and D drives only (which should be fine). you said you have the recovery disc for the computer, in which case do not any space on the drives reserved for recovery (as in the case of some laptops Toshiba-no).

    I would recommend only for purposes of recovery, to make a backup of all important data and settings on a separate DVD a regular and make sure that you have a factory DVD Toshiba-state recovery (i.e. one that is in the box when you bought the computer), or one that Toshiba has prompted you to do it yourself. You can also use software such as Acronis to create an easy to maintain the recovery point. I recommend you stick with a recovery DVD and a backup of all your work and folders however to get a clean install/recovery.

    In terms of where to install your photo program/sims2 game, it is to you. As C is the primary drive the primary partition has the best performance on drives C and D. This is why I recommend to leave all your files of program out there and let the D drive for files/applications/games that you do not use as much. You could integrate the storage space of drives C and D in C only, but it's a little too complicated to explain here.

    I hope this helps.

  • The Bluetooth connection is not visible on the Satellite A100


    I have a Satellite A100-797.
    The laptop had Vista Home Premium pre-installed.
    But I have upgraded to Vista Business (32 bit).
    Now my problem is that in Flash cards, the Bluetooth connection is not visible.
    If I press the F8 key on my keyboard, the menu appears when I normally can I enable / disable WIFI and Bluetooth.
    But only WLAN is now visible. I installed all the packages in the driver s page. And I am sure that those who are the most recent.

  • Keyboard light FN (F6 - F7) does not work on the Satellite A200 - 1 GM


    I turned on the Toshiba Satellite A200 - 1 g, a screen is almost completely obfuscate and try to lighten it, but it fails Fn...


    Keyboard of the hospital should operate outside the windows, so that? ... then it may be a hardware failure?

    Please check what I could fix it, I would probably be reinstall everything in terms of software Satellite A200 - 1 g

    drivers: MP_RESULTS_PAGE & partNumber = PSAECE-02C004CZ & serialNumber = k 87324302 & USER_ACTION = 20number % series

    Thanks in advance for the advice...

    Wait a minute I m a bit confused.

    When you start your laptop wait until the operating system load and then try to use the FN + F7. If this does not work, try changing the brightness of the display in power settings. It work?

    You can use other functions FN?
    Are you using the Vista operating system?

    By the way: what is keyboard hospital?

  • 2.60 BIOS does not work on the Satellite A200 - 22 c

    Hi all

    I made the mistake to Flash my old bios Satellite A200 - 22 c (PSAE6E) to the new version 2.60.

    As I did this, the keyboard does not work on the bios screen, so I am unable to manage anything in the BIOS.

    When Windows Vista 32B starts the first time, the keyboard does not work. If I close the session and then I it again, it works correctly.

    The touchpad is lost and I need to use a USB mouse. Is not a pilot cause problem, all the drivers are updated and are working properly.

    The question is: why Toshiba didn't allow users to download the old version of the BIOS? ¿WHERE or who do I contact to get the original BIOS? Why do the flashing utility make a backup of the OLD BIOS and then does not give you the ability to recover it?

    Please, help me to recover the original BIOS to retrieve my keyboard and my touchpad because I can´t find any message or anything like that to get in touch with the technical support of this web site.

    Thank you!

    Which version was old BIOS?

    By the way: you can contact Toshiba. They have access to the Archives of BIOS and they can provide you with older version of BIOS.

  • Driver Chicony webcam does not work on the Satellite A200-13O

    After the misfortune that occurred to my webcam, I tried to fix it by uninstalling the driver and then put it back in place (by the toshiba Web site).
    I did this twice and it does not work,
    allthought the pc installed the driver, the camera was not working because a file was for win95 and my pc has vista.

    After several reboots, I made the following
    -all programs
    -camera assistant software
    -Right click
    -options (the last button in the right click menu...)
    -Select work in win95 compatibility
    Sorry for my English, I am Greek and my menu vista also... :))
    If anyone wants more details please to contact me.
    I hope this could help those in despair...


    Yes I would like some details;).

    For example: manufacturer who is the camera, it is built, made, he has worked previously, and so on...

    So there is a lot to say, have you ever said to the second part, but I'm missing a few things as I've described above. By the way: you can try to recover your machine, if you really need on your camera, but it is really the LAST RESORT.

  • Driver for Chicony USB 2.0 cam does not work on the Satellite A200

    There is no light in the camera, the software is ok, but I can't find the driver.

  • SDHC card do not work on the Satellite A200-1J0 with a clean Vista install


    When I bought this laptop he had 32-bit Vista preinstalled and as usual some Toshiba drivers and software. As I remember there wasn't that no problem with no built in memory card reader, he read regular SD and SDHC cards.

    One day I had to reinstall the operating system (without using the recovery disc) and I downloaded the drivers for my laptop's official website, install and the card reader now is not able to read SDHC cards. Is it me?

    That's what I installed for the reader:

    -Toshiba Value Added Package, where is TOSHIBA Flash Cards inside
    -Flashmedia driver
    Utilities - SD

    I just want to underline that there is no problem with reading mmc or normal sd cards.
    My sdhc card is 100% works correctly with other card readers.
    Another sdhc card I have does not work, it's just that I put anything inside the player.

    Just nothing happens.
    Is there something else that I missed, and it is the reason for my problem?

    No fix for Vista or something like that?


    You the problem with SD cards are certainly related to the software I think that your drivers/utilities are installed isn't properly (in order) or on Vista may miss something.

    Maybe you don t know what important thing;
    It is very important to install the driver (no matter that drivers;) XP or Vista) in the right order.
    For most an installation instruction is placed on the page of the European driver Toshiba, which contains the essential installation order.

    As I m not wrong not the A200-1J0 belongs to the series PSAE6E and you must choose this series first to get all the compatible drivers for you series.

    By the way;

    The Flash Media Driver is a bridge Media Slot driver. This slot allows you to insert an SD card, Memory Stick (Pro) or xD picture cards.
    The SD utilities contains utility Format SD Memory Card and other SD functions like utility of SD memory.

    These three applications are very important to use SD cards.

    I try to install vista on my laptop but a letter of the key is not visible, all the other parts are very well including the serial code, is there another way to get the key of the other information? The laptop currently has non-OS I've tried to reinstall.

    Thank you


    Product keys are bit-agnostic - they don't care if it's 32-bit or 64-bit.

    However, cannot legally use the recovery disk from one computer to a different constructor machine - as other licenses are not properly paid..

    There is nothing nonetheless to try all possible variations on the absence of character (there are only 25, after all the )

    Other than that, your best option is to contact the manufacturer and order a set of recovery disc for the machine. I do no download available for Vista with SP2 - but you can download Vista with SP1 and create the disc.
