Lost my recovery of my Satellite A20-S103 disk
Hi all! I lost my recovery of my Satellite A20-S103 disk. Anyone could copy it for me? Or, there is somewhere I can get it? Thank you! Be well!
> Could someone copy it for me?
Toshiba Forum is not an emporium of recovery disks!
I guess that a recovery could be ordered from the ASP.
If this laptop is too old then it will not be possible to get the collection of the ASP.
In this case, you need to install the XP from your own disc, and then the pilots could be downloaded from the Toshiba page.
I have toshiba satellite a20-s103 and I want to spend the cpu and ram.
I need more to upgrade the processor that the RAM, the socket is socket p, please if you find any compatible cpu or ram from e - bay or if you find elsewhere, new cpu, or second hand in a good situation, please report it!
and please tell me if intel core 2 duo or quad is compatible
If you find the intel core 2 quad or compatible with that laptop duo, please report!
Thank you very much!!!
Guess what buddy.
Forget the CPU upgrade!
It is a very old notebook support old chipset.
I'm quite sure that the chipset would not support Intel Core CPU m.
In addition, the memory can be improved up to 1 GB of RAM (2 x 512 MB)
More is not possible.
In my opinion, if you need more performance, buy a laptop (maybe good work 2nd unit) supporting the newer parts.
I have a Toshiba Satellite A20-S103 and I'm looking for a graphics card. I don't know what is the brand of card, Board is Intel, independent, I don't know, please tell me what is the card.

Hey this is cool that you always use this old piece of hardware. I m wondering really you want to fix, because it is not so easy to find parts for these old machines.
Autour Googling, I found the info this old machine has video Trident ALADDiN-P4 card.
I put t know if this info will help you, but the key is that you got the answer to your question. ;)
I can not access my LAN or internet.
I use a Satellite A20-S103 with a Realtek RTL8139/810 x Family Fast Ethernet NIC
When I connect the Lan cable to the LAN port, the message "LAN Cable" disconnected.
The same message is displayed using connectivity doctor ConfigFree.
I have changed several cables, used cables that worked on other computers and the message still there and no access to the router/modem.
Near the LAN port LEDs are not lightning (or orange or green, no)
I already read messages here in the forum (and other forums) and I can't get the ethernet card works.
Do you think the problem is with the card or the operating system.
Can you help me?
Sorry for my English
First, check to see if the network card has been recognized in the Device Manager.
Under network adapters, you should see the LAN card.
If there is a yellow exclamation point near network card then the driver has not been installed correctly or there is another serious error.
In the first case I recommend the withdrawal of the LAN card from the Device Manager and after new reboot, you should try to reinstall the driver downloaded from the Toshiba page!
In addition, you must set TCP/IP parameters automatically because the router assigns the IP address automatically.
Please check and report the results
I need a flash BIOS for laptop Toshiba Satellite A20-S103. I have already downloaded on the download site.
But this one I can't use because I need windows must be installed. And that's the problem.
I can't install windows because the BIOS is not fully ACPI-compatible.
The version of the BIOS on the laptop is V1.10.
Update I need a version of dos to Flash the bios.
Is it possible to get an update of the bios that is written for dos?
Thank you very much

You will get no other update BIOS (traditional BIOS). Only the victory of BIOS-based are available on the Toshiba page!
In addition, you should be able to install windows even the BIOS is not fully ACPI-compatible.
What Windows you are trying to install?
She asks "Plug adapter AC." but II use my laptop with power supply only. And I have not adapter how can I install and upgrade my wood someone has idea?
Model satellite A20-S103.
I have 1.10 BIOS already I need 1.40
[Edited by: admin]
as you wrote everything should work!
The drums plugged in when you did the update to the BIOS?
Are you using the original power supply?
Do you use the Toshiba Power Saver? If so, set it to default!
I inserted a card MSI mp54g2 mini pci wifi in my computer Toshiba Satellite a20 s103 and it does not work properly. The signal level is very low, although I tested it in the same room where was my AP (dlink dl-624 +). I found that there are 2 cables inside the computer (Brown and white) and two locations on the wifi card (in the hand). I don't know how I connect them, yet I tried all possible combinations and none of them does not change the signal level. Also, I found that even though the antena is not connected, the signal level is the same.
Can someone help me with this one? !!
Please help me!
Connect cable o white HANDS and black to THE and try again.
I use satellite A20-S103.
my laptop won't burn CD more!
This laptop uses a combo CDRw-DVD-ROM
It reads, but he's not burn CDs?
I looked in the tools and utilities cdrom. I saw a driver called DVDRAM. also I searched toshiba.com drivers latest. She also wrote driver DVDRAM here.
What is the true driver?
What can I do to fix this?
As far as I know, DVD player is automatically recognized by the operating system and you n t need to install any driver. Driver DVD-RAM is something else and it is not only the driver but the little tool too and must be installed if the unit has DVD - RAM drive.
If you can't burn CD the only thing you can do is to do some tests.
Try to remove the drive from Device Manager, and then restart the device. The reader will be recognized and installed automatically
Check if you have any success with the media from different manufacturers
Try to clean the lens
If this does not help, I guess that your drive should be replaced.
I can't tell what type of bars of memory I can use upgade my computer too... Everyone?
I think this link to the module memory for Satellite A20-S103 site should help you get answers to all your questions ;)
As you can see you can improve this laptop to max 1 GB of memory and you use PC2100 200 pin SODIMM (266 MHz) DDR modules.
I hope that you are satisfied ;)
See you soon
Hello! Please, help me with drivers on Toshiba SA20-S103 on Windows XP.
I lost my driver CD and I can not reintstall Windows. This site web I've not found drivers. Maybe I am doing something wrong?
Please, help me. Give me a direct link to the drivers modem audio, video, etc.
Thank you very much!
I m bit confused
I visited the Toshiba driver page and found the drivers for Satellite A20.
So what s the problem?
I have a portable A20-S103 Satellite with the BIOS password.
It is an operator who think "left the password of the bios can be a great way to give a nice headache after they me shooting."
Now, Yes, I had a nice headache, but I think that nothings impossible, maybe you can give me a way to erase that password and reuse this laptop.
Thank you in advance.
Yes, it of possible to remove the BIOS password.
But I put t know how, you need an ASP (authorized service provider). They can remove the BIOS password.

I'm sure they can help you.
I searched with google and browsed the site but could not find the answer to my question. I have a 512 MB Apacer MMC card for my Nokia N-Gage QD. I wanted to use the SD card reader in my A20-S103 to put stuff on the MMC card. And since they are supposed to be compatible, I figure it should work. Needless to say, this isn't: Pei
SD controller driver is installed correctly, but I can't install the driver for the card. Then I get an error "tdevcon failed" and the pilot won't settle.
The drive is even compatible with the MMC in my A20?
Thnx in advance :)
AFAIK MMC card can not be used with your device. You simply insert the SD cards. In my opinion, the only possibility is to buy a small external USB drive.
I own a Toshiba A20-S103. When I bought the camera there not of wireless. I have the switch but wireless. I would like to install it but I don't like solutions card mainly because of the portruding antennas and special care, I imagine that you must have for such a solution (do not break the card because of the carelesness). Now, I opened my laptop and I have the empty mini PCI slot and the antenna cables. I found several mini PCI card on the Toshiba site in the communication options and accessories section. The problem I have now is that although I found two mini PCI card 802.11a/b/g, which seems to be compatible with my model, I can't decide which is the best because the information provided for each of them are the same. The only thing that seems to be different is the reference number (PA3318U-2MPC and PA3298U-1MPC). Also, there is a two 802. 11 b / g cards compatible with my model but even once, I can't make my decision due to the fact that the information provided for these cards is not helping to distinguish between them. Looking in the manual, I found that my model suports only 802. 11a / b (or at least what they say). And there's a mini PCI 802.11 g on the Toshiba site which is not compatible with my model. If it makes me wonder if I can get a card 802.11 g. I would really like it for the higher speeds that it will support. I don't want to pay more money to use a PCI 802.11a/b/g only to discover that I can just conect to 11 Mbps and not 54 or so... Also, I found on the internet of the 802.11 cards g that promise speeds greater than 54 Mbps. Toshiba provides such a solution? If not, are there maps 802.11 g third-party compatible with my model? I hope that there is someone out there who can help me sort this mess.
It is not easy to give you a proper answer. In my opinion, it should work, but it is also important to install a suitable driver for the wireless card. I'm sure that it is possible to install the driver for another model mobile using the same wireless card. It will be perhaps better to contact the Service partner and ask them because they have such information and more experience with this sort of thing.
I upgraded my laptop A20-S103 with a hard drive Western Digital WD2500BEVE 250 GB running under Windows XP Pro.
Since then, I have problems with the sound and the movement of the mouse when the CPU usage is high.
Up to 50% of its use, works well but before I crack and mouse sticks and made jumping movements.
The BIOS and drivers are updated to the latest versions of Toshiba online.
After awhile and a lot of research, I got also the HDD running in DMA mode with the IDE4008.exe ALI tool isn't that hard drive is running in PIO mode.
In addition, I think that the speed of the hard drive is low when the CPU usage is high.
Please also read http://forums.computers.toshiba-europe.com/forums/thread.jspa?messageID=89990 that is showing that I'm not the only one with this problem.
Anyone know a solution?
I agree with Akuma. You should try to update the BIOS and drivers from the chipset and see if it works or not.
It's worth to try ;)

What are the chances of getting my old A20-S103 supports SDHC cards?
I google and Toshiba checked the latest drivers support page, but it doesn't seem to work.
I know I can buy an external USB drive, but I would use the built-in player if possible.
I hope it's just a matter of new driver, not the material itself.
I'd appreciate any help in this regard.
I'm 100% sure that something like this is not possible. This is the old model of laptop, and it is no longer supported.
You can try to install the driver designed for some newer models of cell phones but I put t think it will work.
