Need your opinion on Qosmio F20-153
I'm considering buying a QOSMIO F20-153 and I was wondering if anyone knew if the Sims 2 are played on this subject, because graphics cards cannot play. And also, as it has Microsoft Media center as the operating system, Access and Excel come from on this?
Well, the Qosmio is a very nice unit with a very high performance.
Laptops generally use different graphics drivers like the desktop PC.
The adapters that are installed in laptops are a little different than the graphics in desktop computers.
In this case specifications manufacturers recommend in graphic form drivers for laptop manufacturers Web sites.
These drivers are sometimes not up-to-date and sometimes newer games need new graphics drivers.
In my opinion, if someone needs a unit to play ONLY games at the best way to use the desktop. These units are also easier to upgrade equipment.
Toshiba laptops, Microsoft office is not preinstalled on computers. If you want to use it, you must purchase applications.
AI? m new here and here? m looking for a laptop. The A110-153 seems interesting to me.
Could someone give me more information as comments on what are the + and - of the product?
Also, I saw on a site that has this laptop has 2 hard drives. Is this true? I can't find it anywhere (toshiba.com). Also, I find that strange, I never heard that a laptop has 2 hard drives or disks.
CA? I think that s too bad that this laptop has an integrated video card.
What I want to do with the laptop is:
-work with images (I have a digital camera and a digital video camera)
-A small Photoshop
What? s your advice?
I found a few pictures of the Satellite A110-153 and in my opinion, the laptop is very nice
The laptop supports the processor Intel Core Duo (Yonah) T2050 1.6GHz and you can upgrade the memory up to 4 GB
I put t know where you found the information on 2 HDD, but as far as I know there's a single 100 GB HARD drive installed.
But I found a downside. The notebook support only an Intel 945GM 8-128 MB shared memory graphics card.
But not don t worry it s strong enough to work with photo and MS office applications.
Hi all I'm obout thinking upgrading my qosmio f20-153 to microsoft vista but when I do the controls for vista, I get information that my toshiba pci hybrid dvb-t/analog tuner will not work. are there new drivers on Vista thanks
If your device has no Vista capable sticker, I'm really skeptical about the Vista drivers for this laptop. :(
As the Reaver written, check from time to time this Vista download page.
I have a Qosmio F20 - 153 and when I boot up I get beyond the log in page. It won't let me choose my username so I'm just stuck on this screen. I think I need to perform a recovery CD system but I don't have the CD. Is it possible to download the CD recovery from somewhere, or have any other ideas?
> Is it possible to download the CD recovery from somewhere or have any other ideas?
Unfortunately, there is no link to download. Please order for money from Toshiba:
[Recovery disk | https://backupmedia.toshiba.eu/landing.aspx]
Or copy of windows disk and do a custom installation. All drivers and utilities can be found here:

I have an almost 5 year old toshiba Qosmio F20-153, which has developed an error with the Windows message root>\system32\ntoskrnl.exe file is missing.
I wonder if it's fixable without completely re - install the complete operating system that I still have the Toshiba restore disk.
Any help much appreciated.
In my view, your only option is recovering the entire notebook. The Toshiba Recovery disk only contains an image of factory settings, which means that you can t install this single file of this disc.
In addition it s a good idea to reinstall Windows from time to time. If your installation is already 5 years old, you should do this. You will be surprised with the speed of your laptop is after that. :)
Use the recovery disk is quite simple: you must boot from that disk and follow the instructions on the screen. You do a few clicks only and that s it!
I lost the CD of recovery for the Qosmio F20-153, I have problems, and I want to the system recovery.
What can I do?
You could buy a Microsoft Windows CD and reinstall windows.
Or have you tried Ubuntu - it's free and you should be able to get going on this machine?
I had the bad experience with qosmio before, atm I'm looking for the new machine. I ask you on what is your opinion on Qosmio x 770-107.
Also, don't mind suggestion of other laptop too which works very well.
Nobody does not censor you or someone else.
Things to do any know when Toshiba will start producing F20-153 Windows Vista drivers?
F30 drivers work?
I m afraid. Toshiba will not publish for F20 Vista drivers at this moment :(
You know the knowledge base of Toshiba? You can find it on the home page of the Toshiba support.
However, I studied a bit in this base and found this article:
Microsoft Windows Vista Driver Support for Toshiba laptops models
There are several series of laptops listed, but unfortunately not a Qosmio F20 :(
However, the G20 is also not listed in this list, but some G20 here in the forum users have managed to reinstall Vista and additional drivers.
recently bought a F20-153 (PQF22E) the DVD RAM drive was a UJ-840 and had the problem of common reading and writing on discs, I have a UJ-841 replacement, but when I set up the BIOS came with the CR ROM of ERROR report.
So I bought a different known working 840 a laptop Toshiba, it equipped and the BIOS came back with the same ERROR of CD ROM on start up.
Now for the weird, I closed the lid and went to make a cup of tea and have a think about, when I opened this new Windows has detected the drive, install the drivers, and now I have a working drive... BUT...
Whenever I stop the laptop, it reports the same error on start up, and yet once there drive when first at Windows startup, but once his punt and I put it in hibernation, the drive appears again and works perfectly.
I tried this since the 841 and the same thing is happening, just checked in the Device Manager and noticed that while the label says UJ-840, Windows reports the 'new' 840 as a 831.
I read that the Qosmio player needs must be set to master, this could be the problem? Or Toshiba locking of the type of drive in the BIOS?
The UJ-831 that I have discovered came from a satellite.
Sorry this is such a long post, I wanted to just participate as much detail as possible, all you have ideas?
Had a lot of views but answers just this give a slight bump in case anyone has any ideas
I could do with help,
Recently, I moved house and lost my TV antenna for my QOSMIO.
I have spent ages looking for a replacement online but had no luck so far.
Anyone know what kind of cable is that plugs into the port next to the power supply in the laptop bag.
The port is silver on the edge with a white inner circular disc.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, a web site where I can buy one of these cables would also be useful.
No explanation on what kind of cable is used in this port would be too great
See you soon
Its a TV antenna/antenna cable standard.
They come with a variety of connectors, but you do not want the F-Type or a coaxial blocking.
Amazon stocks their: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Belkin-Aerial-Antenna-Cable-3M/dp/B000CHYSOU/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1228988380&sr = 1-1
Similarly, if you go to any store that sells players from VCR/dvd/TV you can find it there.
Most of the VCRs and DVD players come with them, so you use this cable to connect the antenna to the TV.
IM thinking about purchasing one of them and I was wondering what others thought of him. It looks like great value at £500. the machine will also be able to upgrade to windows Vista premium edition?
In my opinion, because this money, the unit is very nice but he should know very well what you expect of your laptop and what you want to do with it. For all day use the device is perfect, but if you want some high graphic performance I believe it is the right one.
On this forum, I noticed many buy units with the hardware configuration users fairly even and later to upgrade CPU, graphics card, HARD drive put an end to their efforts. I think that you should from the outset be sure that what you have and buy the right unit.
Please check with the dealer if the unit has label Vista capable. If yes the Vista installation will not be problem.
I have a client who has had maliciously twisted their BIOS password protected by an engineer who claimed that he could 'fix' what is called? the BIOS for £50.00.
So I need to reset the BIOS to remove the password. She asks password at startup so that I can't access windows to try to Flash the BIOS to cause a reset. I tried the usual approach to remove the CMOS battery (which only tends to make the RTC these days) with no luck.
Is it possible with one? Key disk? or reset USB dongle for it or is it a case of Service Center?
Thanks for any help
Unfortunately, this is definitevely a case for a service center because the BIOS removal procedure is special and there is no disc master and mistress and whatever.
West something with a code that must be generated from the technician and sent to the Japan to get another code and so. I Don t really know what they are doing, but when a technician had to remove my Qosmio G30 BIOS password it told me that what I told you.
Just send it to a service center and let them to remove the password. But beware, most of the ASP´s is in charge of customers to remove the BIOS password.
Hi, I'm looking for a laptop and I hesitate between the Satellite L20-101 and Satellite M40X-231. I am aware of the differences and would like to hear user experiences.
Thanks in advance.
Well, I think, between these two units, there is no major differences. Both units have a size of drive HARD and similar memory. Only the graphics card has other performance. The L20 has a shared memory graphics card and the M40X has a graphics card with the chip memory own 64 MB. In this case, if you need this device for applications of high-performance graphics (games), I'd buy the M40X. Moreover, I like the nice design of M40X. She very nice unit s :)
I am very close to purchasing one of the above. I know that the 049 comes with Vista, xp support withh 998 which can be upgraded to Vista for a small fee.
First of all, the 049 comes with 64-bit or 32-bit vista, I can't find the answer to this.
Secondly, the 998 has a dedicated graphics card, the 049 seems to be more a share. I'm not a player, but you never know. I don't like to burn the dvd, edit some pictures etc. Also abreast of hard drive sizes.
Since I can get them at a similar price then this isn't a problem, I would be grateful just all opinions with reasons. You can tell me something that I didn't.
049 A100 is here
998 A100 is here
> First of all, the 049 comes with 64-bit or 32-bit Vista?
To my knowledge, Toshiba provides the only notebooks with the OS 32-bit (Vista and XP)
It seems that the 049 support lower devices: smaller size of HARD drive and graphics card external memory.
But both cards are not shared-memory graphics cards. It s an external memory.
In case you I would choose the satellite 998. It seems that this laptop supports the best performance from your hardware.
Just a few questions on this laptop until I get it when it comes to £400.
I especially need school and no games. I am skilled in computer science I need a PC range.
Beautiful appearance Do Q1), the blue lights in the speakers
Q2) is like a microcomputer
Q3) what size is.
Q4) you have the problem like the fact cracks of the hinges.
Q5) that the Remote looks like and is at - it a video showing the computer
1. Yes - very, if you like cars modded or need for speed, or a Mac on steroids (bronze cover, blue lights, harman kardon speakers), then Yes.
2. you can use it as a desktop computer, the screen is large enough for programming on without too much trouble.
3 17 inches, you'll definitely need a bag of 17 inches, preferably the new style laptop backpacks with protection against shock, unless you want a pain arm lug around this topic (is not * that * heavy, heavy just irritable).
4. maybe - but the Toshiba warranty Guys tell me it is being fixed, new reinforced plastic are mounted when I get mine replaced (and probably they will change the models for sale). You can't have the problem.
5. the remote control is optional - I got one - should I have one? :)
