Low light on Satellite Pro A200 psae1 with XP

I installed XP Pro with sp2 on this laptop and now when I turn on the screen is really boring, so I have to put on stand-by and then turn it back on and then the screen is fine. What could cause such a problem? All the drivers are the latest version. Please help I have deployed 30 laptops for our users and all are to me!


I wonder if you have tried to adjust the brightness of the display to the next level by using the FN + F7 key combination.
The combination FN + F6 or FN + F7 increases or decreases the brightness of the display
Usually, the power saver installed Toshiba control modes of different energy and the brightness of the screen to save battery.

I would recommend checking this feature of the button

  • Satellite Pro A200 PSAE1E: Can't get the shortcut keys don't work on Win XP


    I have a Satellite Pro A200 PSAE1E that came with Vista on it, I reinstalled Win XP Pro installed with relevant drivers download Toshiba page but cannot get working shortcut keys.

    I installed the controls and the driver, but that doesn't seem to work. Saw an ad on "common module" somewhere, but can't seem to find any links to download on the download page.

    Can anyone help?

    Thank you very much


    The control utility and driver controls allow you to customize and TOSHIBA special button preset settings. But it is not a FN keys!

    You must install the Hotkey utility if you want to use the FN keys.

    Another tip:
    It is important that all Toshiba drivers and utilities are installed in the correct order.
    On the Toshiba driver page, you will find a txt file called installation instructions.
    Please install all drivers and tools in the order mentioned in this instruction!


  • Can what internal HD I use on my Satellite Pro A200 PSAE1E-01700EN5

    I need to replace broken my laptop internal HD. I was wondering, what HD internal I can for Satellite Pro A200 PSAE1E-01700EN5?

    The only one available to order for cheap's grand 250 GB, but my laptop will support it? I have 80 GB.


    The Satellite A200 is a notebook of new generation that supports a SATA HDD controller.
    In my opinion, you can use a larger SATA 2.5 HARD drive like 200 or 250 GB.

    The laptop establish any problems!

  • Re: Satellite Pro A200: can I get the drivers of preinstallation discs?

    I have Toshiba Satellite Pro A200 (PSAE1E) with XP Pro.

    I made a mistake and tried to update the Realtek audio drivers, knit drivers, but does not show the Realtek HD Audio Control Panel to the top, not in the system tray, or in the Control Panel folder.
    I contacted Realtek, they gave me a program that analyzed my HW and then they said that my phone is not supported, I must ask the crazy drivers my manufacturer, laptops, Toshiba.

    I tried the drivers that were running [Toshiba - download drivers | http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com/innovation/download_drivers_bios.jsp] page, but those who did not work either.

    So, there is one thing I can do, if it is possible, how can I get drivers of Toshiba recovery disks, without having to reinstall everything again?

    Something like this is not possible. Recovery image is somehow the package, you can not only pilots.
    Have you tried to roll back the OS (System Restore) before you did this updates?

  • Low RAM speed to the Satellite Pro A200

    Hi all!

    I bought the Satellite Pro A200-1SS with 1 GB of RAM (DDR2 667 MHz), which I've recently updated with a module 2 GB DDR2 667 MHz of Kingston. Problem is that this vista partition, which was 4.2 with only 1 GB module suddenly dropped to 2.2. Everyone knows the same problem?

    Thanks for help.

  • ODD has stopped working on the Satellite Pro A200

    I have a Satellite Pro A200 - PSAE1E.

    The CD/DVD was working fine and then stopped. I put in another CD and it went through the process of trying to find - but could not.
    It ejects the disc. I tried with other CD in the same direction. Yellow light works during the research process.

    I tried to remove the CD from the Device Manager and remove entries of regedit (as suggested on another thread) all without success.
    The computer is a little over a year old and I have no recourse to assistance centers as I live in West Africa.

    Can anyone offer any suggestions?


    Is it possible to boot from the recovery disc?
    I mean the CD/DVD drive reads the original disc Toshiba and it of possible to read other CD or DVD from different manufacturers?

    If all the other disks are not readable then the question looks like a WEIRD error and in most cases the STRANGE must be replaced.

    PS: Please note that if you try to boot from the recovery disc then start a recovery procedure will format the HARD drive and reinstall it the entire image of Toshiba.

  • Can I go by Satellite Pro A200-1YK?


    I have the Satellite Pro A200-1YK with the following features
    1 IntelĀ® PentiumĀ® Dual - Core T2330 1.6 GHz processor
    2 2048 (1024 + 1024) MB of RAM DDR2 (667 MHz)
    3. 200 GB hard drive

    Can I upgrade the RAM to 4 GB (2048 + 2048)? If so, should it be DDR2 or DDR3?

    I have my hard drive can too? If so, the system will support 500 GB of hard drive? If so, what would be the model/product that you recommend?

    With change of RAM, I have to update the drivers? If so, what are they?


    The two components, you can upgrade: RAM and HARD drive.

    Upgrade of RAM:
    According to the specifications of the Satellite Pro A200 1YK it uses an Intel GL960 Express Chipset. This means it supports up to 2 GB of RAM and so an upgrade is not possible because you already have 2GB.
    Here are the specifications of your chipset:

    Update HARD drive:
    I think that on the upgrade of the disk HARD, there is no capacity limit because your laptop already supports SATA interface.
    So I guess that 500 GB should be no problem. You need a portable 2.5 HARD drive with SATA interface and that s all! :)

  • Satellite Pro A200, Windows XP, 4 GB SDHC card will not work.


    I had a Satellite Pro A200 installed with Windows XP, SP2 for some time - no problem, a great piece of kit. However I have recently bought a new camera and splashed by a Kingston 4 GB SDHC card. The manual for my A200 to indicate seemes that it my laptop is compatible with SDHC 4 GB cards but when I push the card in the blue LED flashes and then nothing happens. My SDHC card does not seem to be recognized by the system.

    I see no error in the log of the events of my OS and I checked the slots operation in trying an old 512Mb SD card and works very well.

    Anyone can offer help please?

    For reference, this laptop is a PSAE4E A200 model.

    Thanks in advance

  • Satellite Pro A200 (PSAF4A) - update CPU and chipset


    I have a Satellite Pro A200 (PSAF4A) with a processor Intel Celeron M 540 (1.86 GHz) and a Mobile Intel (r) 965 Express Chipset Family.
    I upgraded the RAM, but it's just not enough performance for me as its limited to 2 GB.
    I know that Toshiba will not admit it, but I've heard people have updated this type of processor before. I can't afford a new laptop altogether but will settle for upgrades I get.

    My questions are;

    Are there companies in New Zealand that can upgrade my processor and/or my Chipset?

    I also noticed that space to the second HDD has no media or in any case to add another HARD disk, is it because of my laptop or is it a manufacturing defect?

    Are there also companies who can add these mounts to my board so I can have a second HDD?

    First, the chipset is not extensible. It s soldered onto the motherboard and can't be exchanged. In addition, on the CPU upgrade, you should read this article that I founded in the area of the FAQ:
    The point is that the new processor must be supported from the motherboard, BIOS and chipset and it is not so easy.

    Install a second HDD is not a problem if you have a second connector to HARD drive (I know SATA) in the second HARD drive Bay. I think some of the Satellite Pro A200 models were fitted with a second HDD and some other laptops are not. So if you have the connector in the Bay, you can install an additional HARD drive.

  • Satellite Pro A200-PSAE7: error on blue screen - ati2dvag infitive loop

    I've got Satellite Pro A200-PSAE7 with ATI Mobility Radeon HD2600. I downgraded to XP SP2. I get a blue screen saying that ati2dvag went infitive enough loop constantly. Any solution to this?

    OFFTOPIC: Why standart drivers from ati.com to display does not work? (while on my laptop of friends with also hd2600 mobilty radeon works fine).


    > I've got Satellite Pro A200-PSAE7 with ATI Mobility Radeon HD2600. I downgraded to XP SP2. I get a blue screen saying that ati2dvag went infitive enough loop constantly. Any solution to this?

    The BSOD appears usually due to software malfunction serious matter or material.
    I think it s a software problem (driver).

    I presume that the BSOD appears why play games in most of the cases the graphics driver must be updated.
    If the XP driver from the Toshiba page will not help, you can try the graphics drivers on the www.omegadrivers.net site. 3rd third party drivers must run on your laptop. But note; 3 third-party drivers can be used only at your own risk!

    > Why standard ati.com display drivers do not work? (While on my laptop of friends with also hd2600 mobility radeon works fine).
    Cannot install the original ATI drivers on an easy path because this drivers don t support protection against overheating. Toshiba GPU drivers are slightly modified and support a protection against overheating. This protection is necessary and important as mobile graphics cards do not have large module of cooling as the GPU on to desktop computers.
    Temperature increases on the much faster laptops and so the driver graphic control performance of the GPU to reduce the internal temperature.

    That's why it of always advised and recommended to use the Toshiba drivers ;)

  • Satellite Pro A200 - question on the BIOS update

    I have a Satellite Pro A200 (PSAE7E) with Windows Vista and XP that have been installed recently.
    In the driver of Toshiba page (BIOS update) says:

    "This Bios is only compatible for portable computers with Windows Vista!"

    (1) should I update my BIOS (1.4) or it'll be a problem for my windows XP?

    (2) anyone has try?

    (3) is there documentation on the BIOS updates (bug fixes, etc.)?


    I will try to be very short with answers:
    1. If you use Windows XP Home edition on your laptop have BIOS update with the version 5.30
    2 this version of BIOS is available for days and it is possible that many people already tried. By the way: until Toshiba out something that is tested and verified.
    3. Unfortunately there is documentation about bugs and patches, but the fact is that Toshiba has designed the 5.30 version to support the features of Windows XP Home edition on the models of laptops designed Vista

  • Satellite Pro A200 failing to connect with iphone via wifi hotspot

    My apologies if I get some of the jargon wrong, but I'm pretty useless when you want IT emits.

    I have a Satellite Pro A200 and had problems connecting to various wifi connections.
    The computer could see the wifi connection and connect to it, but I wasn't able to connect to the internet.

    The question of the Office was arranged by our IT support guy (security settings on the new router we too complex for my PC or something like that), but he has not been able to solve the problem of not being able to connect to my iphone to use the 'hotspot' via the wifi function.

    Someone there knows a way to solve this, or is it a simple fact of the laptop is too old and really need to update?

    Thanks for any help that anyone is able to give.

    > Someone know a way to fix this or is it a simple fact of the laptop is too old and really need to update?

    This isn't a question of the age of the laptop
    As far as I know not that support all mobile operators
    You should first ask your mobile operator if you can use the tethering service.

    If this would be supported in my mobile operator, then connect the iphone to the laptop first
    So that you have two options: you can use the BT connection (in this case check if computer laptop also supports BT) or via a USB cable that came with the iPhone.

    (PS: as far I know to attach is supported by iOS3.0 and higher)

    After that the iphone was connected to the laptop, you must activate the tethering on iphone.
    Under settings of-> network, you should see the option internet tethering it must be enabled.
    Now you should be able to see that in the Network & Center sharing control panel.

  • Satellite PRO A200-1 s 1 with Windows 7 x 32. Touchpad does not work

    Hello world
    I installed Windows 7 on my Satellite Pro A200-1 s 1, recovered all the drivers on the Toshiba site, everything works fine (less than the webcam that doesn't work even with the previous s.o. XP or Vista...). But my Touchpad does not work... No Fn + F9, no drivers, nothing works. And in my control, Manager of Panel devices seem to be going well.
    Any suggestion?


    You reinstall the driver for the touchpad?
    Check it!

    Also check if the option disable touchpad when USB mouse is connected is not checked. That are in the control panel-> mouse-> device settings

  • Satellite Pro A200 - black screen with a blinking cursor


    I'm new to the forum and have a big problem.
    So, any help is welcome and appreciated.

    My Satellite Pro A200 turns black after the BIOS screen and a black screen with a blinking cursor.
    Also just as the screen goes black a beep can be heard which shows windows boot.

    I can access the toshiba Setup screen but not the installation of security mode.

    Kind regards


    Please go into the BIOS settings and check if the HARD drive is listed there.
    The blinking cursor is a typical sign of a malfunction of the HARD drive.
    Eventually the HARD drive is dead and you need to replace it and reinstall the operating system.

    Good luck
