My Portege M200 starts very slowly

A week ago, my computer decided to go slow on me, it took five minutes to load upwards from when I walk, I thought that I could easily solve this problem using windows restore and go before that this was the case. (it happened after I defragmented my hard drive which was strange)

Restore did not work and now some of the programs do not work as tablet pc Input Panel.
Some drivers have gone haywire, my external floppy drive and CD - RW will not work now, (the cd is an ide to usb in an external case)

I have a portege m200.

is their anyway I can fix it these things?

I want to reset the entire computer sing condition factory recovery CD but it won't start my Player external CD and i cant aford another.



Well, if you want to retrieve the device you so you need a supported and compatible Toshiba external drive. Not all external drives are supported and work correctly.
The Portege M200 supports the recovery through the BIOS (by pressing 'C') with the USB 2.0 card and PCMCIA (16-bit and Cardbus).
As far as I know the discs, you can use:
Toshiba PA3352E-SCD2, CD-RW/DVD-Rom USB 2.0 drive
Toshiba PA3402E-1DV2, Rev.501, USB 2.0 DVD Super Multi Drive,
Toshiba PX1055E-1NST (16-bit) PC Card Reader, cable II, PCMCIA

Well, if you have n t not one so you can contact Toshiba. It should be possible to install the OS.

  • update XP June 29, 2011 caused my pc to start very slowly

    the last update of xp June 29, 2011 has caused my pc start very slowly, what is happening on it takes 3 hours to start

    It is important to know which to update. On July 29, I installed the update of KB2541763 (and had no problem with it). Is this the one you mean? Or is it perhaps one of the pilots or optional updates?

    If the update is at fault, you should be able to remove it through Control Panel Add / Remove programs. Then, you must restart your PC. If it still does not work, you must run the system restore, which dates back to July 28.

    I highly recommend you analyzing your PC from malware, too. MalwareBytes' Anti-Malware would be a good starting point.

  • Windows 8 starts very slowly

    Original title: techinecal problem

    I have windows 8. the problem is that startup time is too long .it takes about 5 to 7 minutes to start early. so please, how could solve this problem?

    To find what is causing a computer to start more slowly than normal, you should do this
    Open a Command prompt with administrative rights (right click > run as admin) and run the command
    It will restart your computer so back up your data before doing the below
    As usual it's always a good idea to create a restore point & or back up your data.

    xbootmgr - profile stackwalk - dispatcher, boot - traceflags base + latency + readythread + cswitch - notraceflagsinfilename - postbootdelay 10

    When it's done, it will create a file (usually boot_1.etl) that you are looking for.  Find the file and upload it to your skydrive and give us a link to the file in your next post

  • Portege M400-103 starts very slowly

    My new M400-103 seems slow. I have another unit & even though it was a solo processor it still compares favourably in speed for example starting up my new machine.
    I saw that part of the problem may lie with all programs util that Toshiba load in standard at the start, but surely with the mobile dual-core processor is still faster.

    I put the power to FULL POWER management, etc., but does not have a big difference. I see some comments posted to talk about withdrawal of Toshiba OS & re-installign Windows XP, but I'd rather not do & rather settle the existing operating system if possible.

    Has anyone else had a similar experience. The touchpad on the M400 seems also more finicky about others using touch, maybe that I still need to get used to it?


    As you have already mentioned with computers laptop Toshiba uses a lot of specific applications to control all the features on the phone.
    If you want to use all the features of the laptop if you need applications. It's done.

    To my knowledge the Portege supports a large number of new generation, applications such as the Toshiba tablet software utility of rotation protect suite, protection of HARD disk and so on

    Of course if you do not use this feature, you can remove it. I think then the laptop would boot much faster.
    In addition, on many laptops the Norton Anti virus is activated and this utility slows down the startup procedure. This problem appears also on my laptop. The anti-virus application loading take about 45 sec.

    OK, you laptop uses a Dual Core CPU, but this is not really a reason to start much faster.

    PS: Do you know an application called bootvis or something like that? This application monitors the initialization procedure and is able to make it faster.

  • Publisher XP starts very slowly on my Equium M50


    Just bought an Equium M50-164 and I have problems to open Microsoft Publisher files.

    Generally, the computer is very fast compared to my old one but takes forever to open a file in Microsoft Publisher. Even when it does not open it opens all the tables that were created on the file.

    I have Microsoft Office, Autocad 2005 and Microsoft installed Highway also. They seem to work fine.



    Well, it's not easy to say why it starts slowly. Slow performance can be a very difficult problem to diagnose because there are many causes of the slow performance. More in my knowledge Microsoft programs (IE. Editor, office, etc.) are very complicated software tools and it s is not easy to say which and how much process is running in the context of the BONE. I recommend you to search on the Microsoft Web sites for useful information.

  • Portege M200: Start-up of the SD in HDD external

    "M200 Recovery using the floppy disk or SD card
    Posted the: August 15, 2005 10:36
    I am posting this in the hope that it will help other people seeking to use the CD/DVD recovery, but without a bootable CD. I want to thank the Toshiba of forum

    for the inspiration of how it was done.

    1. you'll need a floppy drive or an SD card over any type of CD player. If your M200 is not working properly, you must also have access to another computer to prepare the floppy.

    2. you will need to download a software: IsoBuster
    and WinImage
    or similar programs.

    3. put the CD of recovery in any computer and start IsoBuster. Click on Bootable CD on the left and then on the right you should see a file .img size 1.41 MB on the right. On my CD, it's called harness Boot Record.img. Right-click on it and extract the file. Close IsoBuster

    4. open WinImage and then file/open the .img file. This will be your disk with all the drivers on CD you need to boot. The disc, ensure that the floppy A: use is checked then Disk-write disc. Close WinImage

    5. connect the floppy and CD drives to your M200 and boot from the floppy. It will take time to find the CD, but it will and you will eventually get the recovery screen.

    That's all! If do not have a floppy drive, but have an SD card and a work M200 then Toshiba SD card program will put the .img on the SD card file and you can then start from there.

    There is a good chance that this method works for other Toshiba laptops, but I can't verify this"
    (author stephem)

    This works!

    What I want to know is, is it possible to somehow initialization of the SD card and instead of the CD player, it finds my external ide drive hard USB and boot off the windows on that?

    Thank you.


    I hope after a long time, you will end your problem. Compatible for your M200 Portege are:

    (1) Toshiba, PA3352E-SCD2, CD-RW/DVD-Rom USB 2.0 drive
    (2) Toshiba, PA3402E-1DV2, Rev.501, USB 2.0 DVD Super Multi Drive,
    (3) Toshiba, PX1055E-1NST, (Freecom drive), with a PC Card (16-bit), II, PCMCIA, cable
    (4) Toshiba PX1055E-1NST, (Freecom drive), with a BUS of the CardBus CARD, cable II

    When you install recovery image remember that this external device has enough power. I recommend to use the external power supply AC for ODD (if available).

    I also found some information, you can use:
    one) Toshiba, PA3352E-SCD2, CD-RW/DVD-Rom USB 2.0 drive
    (b) Toshiba, PA3402E-1DV2, USB 2.0 DVD Super Multi Drive

    I hope that you will find on which is the best for you.

    Good luck!

  • Trolling, laptop screen drivers acting weird, Windows start very slowly

    The screen of my laptop had finally died recently, so I took it into the store of the computer down hence my apartment is. Real easy, just put in a new screen. I have my laptop back and the screen is fine now, but since I found, he acted very strange. Any time I did scroll upwards or downwards, or move a window, that it is delayed and there is this weird wave effect. That I can't plug my laptop go back to my TV via HDMI, and now I can't play Lord of the Rings Online. I tried to install a video driver via Steam for the GeForce Go 7400, and now it takes about 10 minutes for my computer starts after scoring in windows. I'm not really sure to know how to find the specs and everything, but if someone could help me I would be very happy.


    Check the site of laptop manufacturers with regard to the specifications of the machine you.  Look at what graphic chipset provider is. He must check if it is nvidia.  Go to their site and download the latest drivers.  They have a program online to find the best driver for your system.  Download it, and if all goes well, this should you solve graphical errors and restore your HDMI.  NVidia will direct you ensures the latest driver package and complete for your machine.

  • Cap5 starts very slowly

    Hi all!

    I have a very irritating problem when I (try) to open Captivate 5. At the present time, it takes more than 10 minutes before you see the screen of welcome and again a few minutes before I can open or start a project. 1 out of 3 times he opens not at all. If I look at the Task Manager it uses of course more than 130 MB of RAM, but nothing happens.

    But if I open Captivate offline (I simply close the network connection) I can start using cap in 20 seconds. So I think that the connection network more, the proxy or firewall blocking some communication with the server from adobe (?). Due to company policy, I can't change all the settings of firewall or proxy. Someone knows a workaround for this (except closing the connection of network before each startup)?

    All other parts of the e-Learning suite work well, it's only of Captivate. Information of the machine: Windows XP, 2 GB Dual-Core, 4 GB RAM, elearning suite 2.

    I appreciate really any suspicion on that.

    Thank you very much


    It seems to me that you need to store your Captivate projects on a network somewhere and not on your local drive of the PC. Is this correct?

  • Windows 7... sometimes starts very slowly, apply group policy slowly.

    I have a 500 PCs in Windows 7 environment.  Essentially, the boot of machines well, apply fine policies and logon.  Occasionally, PCs random slow startup (get hung at the Windows startup splash screen) and get hooked to the application of Group Policy (Folder Redirection policy application).  It is completely random and cannot usually be duplicated on site.  My question is where can begin to solve the problem?  Are there tools available who can attest to the results?

  • Pilot of common Modules for Portege M200 under Vista

    I have improved my Portege M200 to Vista with relatively few problems - but I get the error message on the compatibility of the common Modules driver - I don't seem to be able to find an upgrade - ideas?


    Sorry but I don't understand the problem you have.

    On the Toshiba support page you can find all the things you need for Vista on Portege M200. Very important is to install the package of added value to the beginning because all important Toshiba designed stuff is there, of course including TOSHIBA components common driver.

    In my opinion there is no need of any updates but the order of good facilities. Have you maybe update the BIOS before installing Vista?
