Not recognized on Satellite 3000 514 Notebook memory intermittedly bench

At the start of my satellite 3000-514-Notebook, which contains 2 banks of memory of 256 MB each, the upper 256 MB Bank very often is not recognized more, and my laptop runs on 256 MB only. Initially, this happened only when I started in hot condition, while that morning, all 512 MB has become available. All memory different tests, including MSDiag, show no error when running with 256 or 512 MB (when available). but the laptop does not start when I change banks of 2 memory or simply use the top Bank in the lower position. I would just buy a new memory of 256 MB of memory, if I was sure that the memory and not the motherboard is the culprit. Anyone have an idea how I could fix this?

Therefore, the diagnostic test is necessary.
A technician can test the memory slots with different memory modules and after these tests, it can give you a detailed report.

I don t think that everyone here will give you a 100% solution. We can speculate and it s something wrong with the memory module or the motherboard. But a test is necessary to ensure the fault.

  • Satellite 3000-514 does not start - 1-1-1-1 beep code appears


    My Toshiba Satellite 3000 514 starts each others time and gives me the following beep code: 1-1-1-1 (4 short beeps) and a black screen.

    Does anyone know what this means?
    This happens roughly every second time I try to start the PC. After l ' works again, it especially works again.

    Any ideas?

    Thank you!


    The beep code appears especially if the POSITION cannot be passed correctly.
    If the problem is detected until the BIOS initialize the video card and the code cannot be displayed on the screen of the BIOS will play several beeps.
    Each BIOS supports the meanings of the own beep codes. For example BIOS Toshiba beep code is not the same thing as "beep code" Phoenix BIOS.

    To my knowledge the Sat 3000 using Phoenix BIOS. In this case, you can try to search in the internet for a description of the code.
    I found this site:
    BIOS beep codes

    But generally cannot solve this anomaly just average and I would recommend contact a technician with huge experience computer laptop.

  • Satellite 3000-514 and put to hard disk


    I recently bought a new hard drive (Toshiba MK6026GAX, 60 GB) for my Satellite 3000 514. When I replace the old with the new hard drive is not recognized. The version of the BIOS is later (2,30 trad) from the side support Toshiba. Someone now how this could be fixed?

    Thank you


    As Quad says no each HARD disk will be recognized because of the size.
    You must contact the ASP for the drives supported. It has detailed information about the supported HARD drive sizes. But without a professional help s not possible to recognize the HARD drive.

  • Drive HARD Max size for Satellite 3000-514 with BIOS 2.30

    Hi people!

    What is the largest size HD notebook with BIOS 2.30 recognizes.
    I have not found any FAQ information ragarding this version of BIOS.

    Thx for your help.


    Satellite 3000-514 supports the HARD disk sizes up to 30 GB.
    You need a disk HARD 2.5 ", the 9.5 mm support bus master IDE, synchronous Ultra DMA 33/66

    Larger sizes of HARD drive are not supported, and I guess that the BIOS will not recognize it.

  • Where can I buy a motherboard for Satellite 3000 514?

    I need to replace the card mother (?), mother (?) on my Toshiba Satellite S3000-514.

    Question: Where can I go to buy the motherboard?

    Question 2: How much in pounds sterling can I expect to pay?

    Thank you.


    I found this site with the motherboard for a Satellite 3000 series but it seems that the Satellite 3000 514 is not listed., Laptop, K000816560.aspx,

    I m not 100% sure, but I think that the 3000 series was delivered with the same motherboard.
    But before you buy anything, you should ask Toshiba authorized service partner for a more details. Guys should be able to also order a compatible Board directly from Toshiba.

    I think you're on the good side, if you ask the opinion of the service provider.

    But as you can see the motherboard is expensive and eventually you might find a second-hand surfboard.

  • Satellite 3000-514: need FL inverter part number

    I'm looking for a frequency for my toshiba satellite 3000 514 control, because my screen is almost black. Does anyone know where I can buy/order the it or what is the product number?


    Well, one of my friends ordered some parts of the Toshiba service partner.
    I guess you can also order the EPA FL dimmer in your country.

    Remember that the FL inverter is not very expensive. But do you know how to change it? You have enough experience to replace?

    I think that it s a very risky procedure because the entire screen needs to be removed. And you know; the screen is one of the most expensive parts on the laptop.

    I think that if you n t be any technician if you ask someone who has more experience in these repair procedures. The best way is to ask the guy to service.

  • Satellite 3000-514: broke the backslash


    I have a problem with my satellite 3000 514, the backslash key does not register in windows, back or any testing program. I've updated the BIOS, replaced the keyboard and it got me nowhere. I came to the conclusion that there must be something to do with the firmware of the keyboard as all other keys work and I can get a backslash to an external keyboard. It's almost as if he missed us firmware of the keyboard.

    You used to be able to get the firmware of the keyboard in the bios, but apparently this is not the case now. Popular utilities or ideas.

    See you soon,.

  • Satellite 3000-514: display dims


    I got a Satellite 3000 514.
    A couple of months ago, it falls on the floor and the broken screen.
    However, I had another screen from ebay.
    Unfortunately it wasn't a 3000-514, but a 3000-2xx.
    It was no problem to install it.
    When you use Notepad it always works for at least ten minutes about but she especially Gets a black screen.
    I was wondering if it's because of the slitely different types or if there is something else broken.
    Thanks for any help.



    If the screen does not show clearly the image therefore mainly the Fl inverter is responsible for this issue. But this is only a suggestion and it is necessary to check before replacing anything.

    PS: FL inverter is not very expensive.

  • Satellite 3000 514 often starts no-beep code appears

    I have a 5 year satellite, 3000-514 laptop and now it only starts when it wants to.
    Most of the time, the screen remains black and the laptop emits four beeps of the four sounds.
    I can try and try again nothing happens, until he starts?

    It is very annoying, anyone experienced this same pb?
    Anyone know how to fix this?

    Thanks for your help

    Kind regards

    It seems that the laptop may not successfully complete the POST (power on self test). The laptop will beep because there is a material error, and some device has not passed the test.
    You can try to disconnect all the external devices and then try to start the laptop.
    But I put t see much chance that this will help solve the problem

    For most in such cases, external assistance is necessary. The technician with a lot more experience as a common user like me and you should check the laptop. I hope that there is no malfunction of the motherboard as this could be a bit expensive :(

  • How to turn on a wireless network card on a Satellite 3000 514 without hardware switch?

    I have a 3000-514 Satellite. This laptop has an internal mini PCI slot. Recently, I bought an Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG wireless mini PCI card.

    The drivers have been installed correctly. The computer has detected the card and the condition of the equipment indicates that the device is functioning properly. However, a message appears indicating that the radio is turned off and must be turned on by the switch hardware. It seems not to be possible to activate the card without the switch...

    See the corresponding page in the Intel support:

    Now, the problem is that the laptop Satellite 3000 514 has quite such a material change.

    Does anyone have an idea what to do?


    If the switch is not available then it of not possible to pass the card ;(
    It seems that the camera is not minPCI scalable WLan!

    In this case, he must use an external solution such as a USB WiFi key or card PCMCIA WLan

    I have a Toshiba Satellite 3000 514 and a WLan Mini - PCI Intel Centrino card. (Provided? � ? ® PRO/Wireless 2200BG) running win - XP and Ubuntu.

    Is there a solution to work around the problem, the wlan software wants to push me a hardware button to turn on wireless lan, that my laptop is enough?

    In a German forum, that someone talked to solve the problem by using the 'easy', a program I already downloaded from Toshiba.
    But you can only choose the .exe files to be connected to a button. Is there a .exe file to make the software think that I pushed that no wlan-hardwarebutton existion?

    It s a card atheros as I have in my Tecra 9100. So, I had a lot of problems with the card intel since they require a full work centrino

    With the card atheros Don t you have these problems with switch/button since they work at all times without the need for switches or buttons.
    The downside is that you can't turn off the map for energy saving purposes.

  • RAM is not recognized on Satellite L650-1MC

    Hello guys

    I have a Toshiba Satellite L650-1MC with an i5 480M CPU and 4 GB DDR3 PC3 - 10600 (2 x 2 GB modules). Today, I got a 4 GB of DDR3 PC3-8500 module to upgrade the RAM 6 GB. I put this new module in and he was not recognized, perhaps because it was PC3-* 8500 * not * 10600 * like the original other two modules.

    However, when I tried to put one of the modules of 2 GB DDR3 PC3 10600 original in once again, he was not recognized or the other! I then left the second empty slot, with nothing in it, and he acknowledged the 1 module 2 GB in there. Do you intend the PC3-8500 module "corrupt" the memory slot, or is it not positioned properly, as seems to be slotted into a fine; It will not move.

    I would really appreciate your help


    Hello Tom

    There must be a compatibility problem. Forum is filled with similar reports. You should only use compatible and tested modules.
    I highly recommend to use modules from Kingston.
    Compatible RAM for your laptop model you can find on ://

  • What HARD drive max can I use satellite 3000 514

    Hey all,.

    What is usable by the 3000-514 maximum capacity hard drive. It comes standard with 20 GB but I can't find anything online that gives this information.

    Kind regards
    Samurai Sjakkie


    I m not 100% sure but to my knowledge the BIOS of Satellite 3000 supports a limitation of the HARD drive and you can only use the IDE 2.5 ", 9.5 mm HDD s up to 30 GB.
    Seems that BIOS will not recognize large s 30 GB HARD drive!

    I found this info somewhere in the internet. But you know the guy. These are only suggestions. If you wish, you can try any other disk HARD s i.e. 40 or 60 GB. It would be interesting to know if the HARD disk is running or not. Are you referring to the merchant of HARD drive if it of possible to test some HARD drive sizes!

    If you have more information, please report it here! Thank you ;) see you later
