Problems of Qosmio G30 and vga/pcb
My Qosmio G30 has developed a problem of vga/pcb.
Toshiba engineers tell me the vga/pcb is damaged and must be replaced, but since it is integrated the entire motherboard must be replaced.
It costs nearly half of the cost of the original machine and a lot more than many new laptops from Toshiba.
Anyone have the same problem or meet someone have any suggestions.

What to say? Perhaps you have simply a lack of luck with your laptop Qosmio. The fact is that the Qosmio is one of the most expencive Toshiba laptops and spare parts are pretty expensive.
Talk with a few different FSA in your country. Maybe you can do something to repair as a warranty issue.

Yes. Do it! It will work.
I thing is interesting for any owner of Qosmio to look at this:
My Qosmio G30 is already dead, I got an estimate from the official service, to repair my qosmio costs nearly 600 pounds. Is a design flaw. Go on the internet.
Interesting links! Thank you.
I have to say then I must be lucky. My Qosmio G30 (German model) works well and without any problems
Hello, (I am French and my English is bad)
I have a Qosmio G30-179 and I can't use my remote when the computer's power on. But I can use the remote to turn on my computer and I can use it when I use the TV and media keys (on the right of the power button).
Another problem: I get nothing when I search for a signal TV on Media player. Even if I'm in a place where I already receive all TV channels. Maybe they had some problems undetected...
All these functions have already worked and I realized that they do not work there is little time. But I don't use them for a long time, since I have received my computer, when he came back guaranteed (I send them because he had a problem in the bars of RAM.)
Then, I think that there was a problem with the service. But I'm not sure.
What do you think about this? Should I call them?
Or this problem can be easily resolved?
Thank you in advance.
In this case, it is really not easy to give advice quite simply. If you are looking for the simplest solution I recommend you save all your data and install OS using recovery DVDs. After that make this laptop will have factory again and I hope that it will work as before.
My laptop is Qosmio G30-149. When I turm to YOU, I see that the screen is not 100% black, but it has some small little clear white points. When Windows logo to come, the entire screen has 10 white vertical lines (each line manufactured with something similar to the sign!), then calculate get frozen and encoding becomes dark. ID, I run Windows in safe mode, then it is OK. What is - this: Virus or a technical problem? My Norman antivirus software reports any problems with viruses. Help, please!
Looks like a hardware problem, and in this case that it cannot be solved by a laptop user simply common.
For the most part a defective part needs to be replaced.
The G30 seems to be a new series and the guarantee to be valid.
SO, don t waste time and communicate with the technicians of the ASP.
Hi, I'm new to the forum
I have a Qosmio G30 with Windows 7 32 bit - model G30 140 31F
I bought an SSD intel 160 GB because of the promissed 250 MB/sg reading speed, because I need for video editing.
I tried in Win Xp and now Windows 7 and it gets up to 120 MB/Sg
I guess it s because of the drivers but I instal the drivers of storage can´t intel matrix any version of it. I tried a lot of them and with the compatibility mode too. It gives me an error saying I have not the minimum requirement.
I have 4 GB of RAM and 2.0 Gzs centrino duo.
I have install intel ssd toolbox and it does not recognize the intel SSD drive as a drive intel to improve the speed and other things.
Please help me to get my speed in the car because it has to be and to have the TRIM option enable in order to have the life of my unit any longer.
I also have the latest firmware in the drive.
Thank you in advance.
PD: It coul be, perhaps, if our computer is a sata 150 controller in place a 300 sata controller? I don't know if the control is one of them in any case.

I put t know how you managed now installing Windows, but Qosmio G30 is equipped with a SATA150 interface... This means that you will never get the 250 MB/s read speed of the HARD drive. You will get a maximum speed of 150 MB/s theoretically, but in most cases it of also a little slower.
How did you check the current speed?
But 120 MB/s is a good speed. You should be satisfied and it s faster than each computer portable HARD drive. ;)
My Qosmio F30 suddenly developed a green lines/pixels on the screen. The same problem exists even before logining windows.
The card (nvidia go 7600) video under the device manager has a yellow triangle with an exclamation mark inside. I tried reinstalling the VGA driver, but nothing has changed.
I think it is a hardware problem (GPU), but I don't know if there is anyway to fix it. Please notify.
It's certainly the hardware problem. What you can do to confirm this is to connect external monitor to your laptop to see if the same thing will happen. If so, the GPU is defective and if not display's troublemaker.
What you can do to solve this problem? Not much. Material exchange is your only solution.
I can't install SuSE Linux 10.3, because the hard drive will not be detected.
I think it's the Software Raid... in the BIOS are only the options of Raid 0 and JBOD. When I changed to JBOD, it says I need to install the new os.
Windows XP Professional is installed on the computer and I want to have a system to dual-boot with Open SuSE 10.3.
How can I solve the problem?
Man... that's a really complicated problem.
First of all, please consult this site unofficial toshiba official: http://linux.toshiba-dme.co.jp/linux/eng/pc/QosG20_report.htm
West a complete report on your machine where all material etc. are described. The two entries on the bottom of the site describe the problem that you have.
Another good friend called 'google' redirected me [THIS | http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=574116] site.
You see, it s a problem since your RAID controller is not correctly recognized by some kernels/distributions.
I have no perfect solution for you, but I propose to try another distro (since there are hundreds of them) who could probably work with your machine.
The best would be to visit www.google.com and type something like "Qosmio G20 linux raid". Trust me, you will get many results. :)
Keep rocking with linux ;)
My computer is a Qosmio G30 and there is this problem of restart or shutdown. I click the icon once and it closed to some programs. I had to click on it again to restart or stop.
How to remedy?
It seems that some application fails to close properly. It is difficult to say that who and why.
Try to uninstall the software that you have installed right before this problem started for the first time. With a bit of luck, you might find the cause. Otherwise, you can do a final solution a recovery facility.
Windows associated problems are really difficult to locate.
Yesterday when I got home I started my Qosmio G30 and I think that the fan was blasting and struggling to be honest, although I only realize that afrer do some reading this morning. In any case, I have used the PC for about an hour and then left running with 1 application running while I went out.
Back a few hours later, the laptop didn't stop it yourself, but there are two generic boxes that had arisen indicating to stop the laptop and return it for service.
By the sounds of it the fan had stopped working together and the computer has been deadly quiet. I restarted and still once the fan wasn't working at all, and even if the laptop loaded in windows, I immediately stopped him again.
I am afraid that the laptop has not closed itself down when the fan is not, and if she has not done this, any damage likely to be caused, even if he did load in windows?
Looks like fans have a great generation to the top of the dust or the fan has failed.
Send the laptop to an ASP, they can check the fans and remove dust for you.
Qosmio G30 and Windows Vista
I want to update BIOS and I fear that there is a risk that the way in which the process is done safely. Step by step please
Thank you byee
I agree with Akuma but another question: why you want to update the BIOS? As you already wrote this update is a bit risky and that s right so this update should only be done if you can see a few problems with the laptop. Otherwise I wouldn t do an update of the BIOS.
Maybe there is another solution for your problem ;)
I have a Toshiba Qosmio, and unfortunately it has hardware problems.
I did some troubleshooting and found that it was the graphics card. I brought my dealer because it is still under warranty.
They checked and said it was the graphics card in 30 seconds, so he sent him to these guys http://www.serviceexpress.com.au/services.aspx
After 2 weeks, I rang my dealer and he gave me the website and number of ICF so I could check on my computer. They did nothing so I sent them an email and they said that it was now a priority. After 1 week more I sent the email asking what was going on and they said that it was still a diagnosis.
After yet another week, it's 2 weeks to diagnose the problem, they say that we send parts and that it could take some time.
Now do not know if someone at Toshiba are affected by this, but I paid a lot of money for a laptop, that I couldn't user for more than 4 weeks now. As I couldn't find an e-mail address for a contact that I posted hear. I'm very frustrated because the computer itself is good, but I am satisfied with the service I receive.
I would be happy to receive an email from someone at Toshiba, to see if they think it's acceptable or that they would be happy to go without a computer here for 4 + weeks of time.
If you have a Qosmio G30 and if there is something wrong with the graphics card or motherboard then an authorised Toshiba partner should be able to help and it should repair it under warranty.
This is mentioned here on the Toshiba product update page:

I have a Qosmio G30 and was forced to install XP PRO due to the network at work. My IT support managed to get all the drivers installed, and everything seems to work properly. The only question that i'got is that I have no sound while watching TV. Either in the Qosmio player or WinDVR.
In Device Manager, the sounddrivers appears as "rather old" and "old videodrivers", is the same version of XP MCE?
Some of you who installed XP PRO can help me please?
Have you checked the page of the Toshiba driver?
I checked this page and found that 3 different Qosmio G30 drivers exist on the page.
First, you must choose the correct unit.
Second, if you are installing the drivers manually you should check the site installation instructions document and you should follow this guide line.
Moreover I didn t find the drivers, particularly for WinXP Pro, but only for WinXP MCE, but I presume that these drivers also work with XP.
In any case, for most of his TV problems occur because of wrong settings PAL/SECAM.
Please also check these options.
I have a Qosmio G30 and my system is Vista ultimate
my pc start up startup on the external display. How to solve?
Tried to change HWsetup LCD + Analog RGB and the problem resolved now .but my question:
Before it's selected work fine with default "auo". What happened now? Why must select (LCD + Analog RGB) now! ?
I format my pc, but does not not with the default selection (selected auo) must I change it manually to (LCD + Analog RGB)
> Tried to change HWsetup LCD + Analog RGB and the problem resolved now .but my question:

HWSetup changes the settings of the BIOS.
So, I recommend checking the BIOS and configuration of the LCD screen in the first place, and then save the changes to the BIOS.
In addition, you must use the FN + F5 option to switch to the default option (only internal LCD).
Last but not least you must check Vista display settings if the external monitor has not been defined for the main display.
I read a lot of messages about the green lines, white spot, and blue screens. However my laptop screen has taken a step beyond that and stopped working!
I have a Qosmio G30 102. I was playing a game (use high amounts of graphics) when suddenly the screen went. I restarted the computer, but it came with the different colors of the Rainbow (green lines, would change to a completely white screen). The problem was once windows starts to load than the screen turns off. I used the function keys to review the settings of the screen (if you want it to be double screen, connected to the LCD tv), but nothing would work.
I decided to restart the laptop, but it now came with windows not stopped correctly and gave me the options to start the computer and had pixels all messed up (some letters were missing), windows, put in place would not work after the reboot because the screen turns off.
So now, the laptop is just left with a blank screen. I can't install windows and my warranty is now sold out (ironically just 1 month ago: S)
Any help would be appreciated!
