Performance of slow game on Satellite Pro C660 - 2 7
So my slow running on C660 - 2 7 games my graphics card is ATI mobility radeon hd 5470.
Can I do something? I tried the canyourunit site that says if you can or can not and on Assassin's creed said revelations that I can run but once ingame it goes really slow
You can try to change the game settings: for example the value down the graphic details.
You can also try to increase the memory of the computer s.
But beware: the game performance is dependent on s laptop equipment.
Even if you are able to run the game, this does not mean that you will get the best game performance that you know
After paying a lot of money for this laptop, it's actually only worse typing Word-texts. There is almost no games that could be played on this laptop, nore wether Fifa 07, Fifa 08, wether Call of Duty 2 nore Red Orchestra (this list is in fact muuuuch longer), most of the time its simly to slow down. graphikcard 512 MB is not a lot if you cann't play anything. I have not now what to do... hope someone can help me, cause, I'm with my nerves on the end.

Are you using Vista on this laptop?
Well, if you bought this phone especially for a game I recommend the installation of Windows XP with the latest graphics drivers and then to try to play all the games.
As you probably known t the Vista operating system needs a lot more material resources like old operating systems from Ms. This could have a bad influence on the performance of the game.
Also I recommend you to check this page.
078 http://www.Computerworld.com/action/article.do?command=viewArticleBasic&articleId=9011 & pageNumber = 1
On this page you will find an interesting discussion about the game on Vista OS
_By the way; _
Microsoft has released a published and patch which solves the problems with the use of virtual address space. This is a reason why some games is crushed or didn't run smoothly on Vista OS
* + Use of space virtual address in Windows game development + *.
Had a few Steam games and whenever I try to play them they do any thing initialization and then the process just stop.
From the journal of event viewer and there is an error message:

I don't think it's a problem with the games I reinstalled them and the same thing happens.
All the drivers are the latest available.
The system is a satellite Pro C660 1 t 1, running Win 7 Home (64).
Any help muchly appreciated.

There is advice on aticfx32.dll.
The file belongs to the driver ATI Technologies Inc. Radeon DirectX 11.

The games are not known to me, but regarding the error message, it seems that there is a problem of compatibility between game and driver GPU
Therefore, I recommend an update the display driver
This issue is one for computer laptop Toshiba Satellite Pro C660-1UX running Windows 7 Home Premium Service Pack 1.
Some of the keys on Board (E, T, U, I, O, A, B, N, and the Enter key) fail to register.
All keys tested so far seem to register normally.
When you connect an external USB keyboard, all the keys work properly. When you use the integrated keyboard or external USB keyboard, however, pressed some key is selected for about 2-3 seconds so that his character register. This makes typing incredibly slow and is naturally unacceptable.
I checked the Manager of devices looking for errors, but can't find one. The keyboard driver is classified properly installed and functional, and driver update indicates that the latest version is in already in service.
I've also scanned for viruses using Spybot and Malware bytes and also with laptops own antivirus software pre-installed. All the analyses of the entire system refer a none found the message of threat.
I read that the keyboards on these machines can sometimes be problematic, which could respond only to edge, some function keys. The fact that all the external USB keyboard keys work seems to confirm this. However, the fact that the keyboard both onboard and external is affected by the same slow pressure might also suggest a bios problem - but that this laptop computer is several years old and working perfectly, why bios suddenly would cause this problem.
I visited the Toshiba site and based on this laptop with the part number: PSC0ME-02100SEN, I have concluded (rightly or wrongly) that the correct bios download version is 1, 70 - WIN, only when I read the following installation instructions http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/kb0/HTD9502M10000R01.htm bios
I became quite concerned, like installing the bios update seems far from simple.
Does anyone know if it is possible to download and install the bios right through an update automated versus manual download and installation step by step, which, if not carried out as planned, could make the laptop completely unusable.
Has anyone reading this post experienced similar problems with this make and model laptop and was able to return successfully to the good operating condition. If so, how?
All constructive advice would be welcome.
> When you connect an external USB keyboard, all keys work correctly.
This means that the keyboard controller is OK and the internal keyboard is defective.
To resolve this problem of keyboard, internal keyboard needs to be replaced.
> However, the fact that the keyboard on board as external is affected by the same keypress slow could also suggest a bios problem - but this laptop computer is several years old and works perfectly, why bios suddenly would cause this problem.
Hmm I n t think so
The keyboard delay can be bound to parameters.
You can check this in the control panel-> keyboard
Windows 7 64 bit Satellite Pro C660-portable 1NR
One of computer Laptop my users freezes at random times throughout the day. At first, I thought it was battery attached, as the first two occurrences that happened when using disconnected, but it has since then done when connected too. On average, it happens at least once a day.
He will not resume later, the only way to get past that is holding down the power button then restarting.
The problem started when downloading a number of updates from Windows about 6 weeks ago. Previously it has never frozen, not even once.
I'll wait to die again (maybe today, maybe tomorrow!) and focus on the event log around the time he died.
Don't you think that it is hardware or software related?
I updated the drivers of the laptop, chipset etc, so everything is as up-to-date as I can get it.
Nothing wrong with this laptop other than the gel, performs very well when it works.
Your help is very appreciated.

So why you n t try to fix the system to the point before the updates were installed? I think it would be the first step, try to solve this problem.
> Do you think that it is hardware or software related?
If the settings in the system at the point of early time would not help, I suppose that a recovery system would be the next step to find out the reason for this problem
After the related question of the unit should work correctly if it could not well be material recovery
I have a Satellite Pro c660 and bought a copy of windows 64 bit with him - the laptop come with many software from toshiba on what I wanted really, I therefore installed windows 64 bit (fitness in the process).
After the Installation I had some problems connecting to my wireless home (he was missing drivers, but have now install) but finally got it works.
After having taken it round my friends last night, I could not connect to its wireless - the password has been good and I could see the network, but he just kept constantly defect - its network was on it, because his cell phone he was performing. -The only difference between its network and the spirit (that I can see), it's that she was using the TKIP encryption to connect, while I was using AES (my network card is Atheros). -Even when I tried to configure a network profile and have it automatically connect (using the same information she used, including the TKIP encryption) - it was always not.
The ideas people? More missing drivers?
PS - I really don't want all that toshiba nanny software on the laptop.
Thanks in advance!
> Any ideas people? More missing drivers?
If you can see the Wlan network then it means that the WiFi adapter driver is correctly installed and the problem is between the router configuration problems WiFi and wireless network card.
Are you abele to connect to other networks wireless at home?
Please disable encryption settings in the Wlan router and try to connect to the Wlan that is unprotected.
But note; This must be done only for testing purposes!
You should also check if the MAC address filtering is disabled in the settings of the router.
I tested 5 Lightroom on my Satellite Pro C660 and it worked fine.
I decided to do it, and that week Lightroom 6 came out, so I bought Lightroom 6.
LR6 gets to the start screen, then stops and closes the Windows7.
I contacted Adobe and they went on my machine and identified the problem as being the graphics card and says I need an update of the driver.
I've been on the Toshiba site and it says that the latest driver is 22.214.171.1249, which is the one I currently have (and was changed in 2012).
I've been on the Intel site and their obtrusive says that the machine has a pilot custom then contact Toshiba.
I looked around the Intel site and tried to install that seem to be plausible drivers, but have not found one that would install.
My installation includes a monitor LG 22 "connected to the laptop with the spread of the desktop on both screens (laptop and monitor).
No one knows what would be the upgrade of the driver I need or how can I know?
The page Intel graphics driver can be used, and you can also download the driver directly from the page.
This CPU does support your laptop?
What Intel GPU (Intel HD graphics chipset *) is the support of laptop?
The Intel download page provides a driver Intel as an exe or zip package
You need to download and unpack the zip package.
You will then be able to update the driver in Device Manager, choose the Advanced installation update procedure.
I have a Toshiba Satellite Pro C660-2JD.
The keyboard has stopped working, it only works when the keyboard screen is selected as soon as I close the screen keyboard that it stops working. I plugged another keyboard that doesn't work or only works of the mouse and the keyboard on the laptop works ok. I used the Ubuntu live CD, and the keyboard works with it, but not in windows.
I have restored the laptop to factory settings and also make a clean installation still does not work only when the screen on the keyboard keyboard works. Does anyone have any ideas of what is the problem? It seems that something prevents the loading keyboard driver.
Start your laptop and enter the BIOS settings. Keyboard works in BIOS mode?
Have you tested using \Windows in "safe mode" (F8)?
Please test and send feedback.
I've been locked out of my bios and I don't know the password. My little brother was playing with my laptop computer and accidentally set the supervisor password. Is it possible that I can recover the password or reset it? I really need to change my boot sequence as I just bought a new SSD and need to format my laptop. Suggestions will be highly appreciated.
Here's my version of bios and details of laptop
Toshiba satellite Pro C660-29W
CPU Intel Core i5 2410 M
8 GB Ram DDR3
BIOS: BIOS FRIEND - installation utility Aptio
BIOS system ver: 1.50
THIS Version: 1.50
Supervisor password is very important safety device and a kind of reset of the user is not possible. You can cancel it, but you must know the correct password to confirm that you are the real owner computer laptop.
Toshiba provider in your country can help you with this. You just approve that you are owner of the laptop, and they can cancel it for you. Of course, you must pay for it.
As far as I know, there are several techniques for the removal of password and it depends on phone model.
Contact the closest Toshiba ASP and ask for help.
My HARD drive died, so I decided to upgrade my Satellite Pro C660 - 1 9 to an SSD.
I made a USB bootable with Win8 and starts very well.
The problem is that it does not detect my SSD, so I can proceed with the installation.
SSD appears in BIOS but not in Windows Installer.
He said that there is a missing driver.
I downloaded the AHCI drivers (XP, only ones available) and even in this case, after you have selected the only rider that appears, it says no new device found.
I tried to change the SATA from AHCI mode to compatibility mode and it's the same thing...
What can I do?
Thanks for the help.
More old Windows XP need a driver AHCI Intel's but I think this isn't a problem with SATA driver missing because as far as I know Windows 8 as well as Win 8.1 already contains the drivers to recognize the SSD or HARD disk drive.
In addition, the installation of the OS should be possible even if the driver would be added for this procedure, you must use the "compatibility" mode
As you say, the compatibility mode is not working too, so I think there is another problem.
However, page driver Toshiba also provides a driver Intel RST (Intel Rapid Storage Technology) (Windows 8 - updated) you can try to add during the installation of the OS.
But I m wondering if you would be able to install this Win 8 on common SATA HDD.
Have you tried to format the SSD using a different computer, then install Win 8?
Give it a try.
I need help for my son who is the Satellite Pro C660 1LR laptop.
In this portable hard drive is completely dead, I have not created a disk of recovery for this system of portable computers.
I bought a new hard drive that is installed... However, as you guessed it I have no access to reinstall an OS, this laptop works on windows 7.
I'm not really tech savvy so if someone can advise me please do explain to the fool proof format! I try to avoid having to buy something expensive.
> I'm trying to avoid having to buy something expensive.
Problem is that you don't have many options in this regard.
If you want to have the factory again settings you must install recovery disc. You can order on https://backupmedia.toshiba.eu/landing.aspx of course is not free, but, in my opinion, without a doubt the best solution.
You can buy the Microsoft installation disc and install the clean version. You must purchase a valid license for it.
In this case, you must install all the necessary drivers, tools and utilities for more than one by one.
Just in case you can get this installation of Microsoft and the free license you can save money.
Believe me, the best solution is the original recovery disk command.

Does anyone know if Firewire can be attached to this model either internally or externally. As my office has finally called it a day I rely on my laptop.
Thank you very much.
According to the specifications of the laptop this model of laptop is not fireweire port.
Generally recently years laptop have firewire port.

My sister asked me to update his laptop (Toshiba Satellite Pro C660-16N; The part number PSC0ME-01S00SEN) of Windows 7 Home Premium (64 bit) of Windows 8 (64-bit).
So I did.
Then I went UK from Toshiba Web site to check if there are any drivers I had to install for Windows 8. The only one was an update of the BIOS (for BIOS v1.70). I don't know what was the previous BIOS version number.
So I run the update application in Windows 8. Phoenix WinPhlash Technologies starts and then in the middle of the update, everything freezes.
The trackpad would not move the cursor or anything like that. I had no choice but to disconnect the phone from the wall and remove the battery. The laptop is not under warranty.
Of course, now it won't turn. It will beep once when I press the power button, but the system does not light. A few minutes later, it looks like one long beep and two short beeps. It then keeps repeating this sequence every two minutes "one long beep, 2 short beeps".
I google and read the site after the blog after the post on the forum, but nothing works. Links to the software offered on these forums/blogs/Web sites in french are usually dead, so I can't try what they suggest.
The most common solution is the Phoenix crisis recovery tool. I managed to download v126.96.36.199 which is supposed to allow me to make a bootable USB key. The version of this tool that I downloaded is supposed to be for a Lenovo ThinkPad X 200. I have the correct BIOS.rom to C660 Pro Satellite (I renamed BIOS.wph and copied to the appropriate folder).
I followed all the instructions, but it doesn't seem to work. Some sites say if it happens, I have the wrong version of phlash16.exe. Some other sites say that HP Boot Disk USB Utility should be used, but I don't know how to use it.
What I really need, is a definitive step by step foolproof guide to know what to do, with links to the files/tools to use for this model of laptop. I will follow this blindly (which I don't really understand what makes each step, I just do it with no understanding,) so if anyone can help me with this, please write a guide like an idiot!
If anyone can help me with this, I appreciate it. I'm really in a difficult situation - I can't really afford to pay a Toshiba ASP to fix it, and I can't afford a new laptop certainly. But I also couldn't bring myself to tell my sister, ' it's broken, deal!
Thanks in advance.
Take a look at this thread:
Perhaps the last comment by the user * gansell1980 * could help you.
Otherwise, you need help from the Toshiba authorized service if you reflash the BIOS ROM module provider
Satellite Pro C660 does not illuminate. no noise, no light just fill out the dead.
On this virtual path, it is not possible to provide an accurate diagnosis. All you can do is to unplug the power plug, remove the battery and leave it for a while. Then press the power button and hold it for 15 or 20 seconds.
After doing this connect the power running and try to start again.
What happens when you do this?
Hi - my C660 Pro Satellite died last week. We have replaced the hard drive, but I don't have the recovery disks. We were able to load Windows 7 but now we need to load the drivers. I found the page download drivers.
Sorry its naïve but
1 should. what drivers I download?
2. How can I when my Toshiba can't connect to the internet.
Thanks in advance
> 1. Should what drivers I download?
Download and install any Satellite Pro C660 drivers for your Windows System. In case you are using Win 7 32 bit, download Win7 32-bit drivers
> 2. How can I when my Toshiba can't connect to the internet.
I guess you are able to access the internet because you have posted here in the forum.
So why you n t download and store all the drivers on a USB key where you could launch the driver installation.
