Qosmio F20-149: how to start the eSATA disk OS?

How can I boot my OS from an eSATA drive connected via a PCMCIA-SATA Adapter?

Post edited by: MrG

Hello MrG

I was very interested about your previous assignment and I have to say I wonder what you do with your Qosmios when questions still outstanding.

In any case, I know the start if the BIOS supports booting from PCMCIA, maybe it will work, but I guess on your Qosmio, it is not possible.

Can you please give me more info on the operating system installed on the external HARD drive? It is the same image as on F20 or some other HDD portable?

  • Qosmio F20-149: I accidently deleted the folder Power Saver


    I have problems with the energy saver, but I could not uninstall and reinstall so I deleted the whole directory... an error! So can someone download me its Repertory Powersaver so I uninstall etc still files once and I can uninstall correctly it!

    I have a Qosmio F20-149, but with luck another Qosmio Version will do as well, too!

    thx for the help

    I don't think it's a good idea to install files to watch foreign power on your operating system.
    I recommend you to download the energy saver (if you have it t n), and then install it again.
    If the installation does not start because of missing files, so you must first enter in the registry, and then delete all entries of power gain.
    And repeat the installation procedure.

  • Qosmio F20-136: how to install the software update for DVB TV device?

    Hi, I used the update all the drivers for my qosmio f20 136 11/07/06 and received various pilot updated on the list.
    The file called TV-TUNER-QF20-XPMCE-103250526 at startup allows the pilot to TV TUNER directory listing and seems to be once I was the driver under System section and selected update driver and select this directory.

    My question is the another file called DVBTAHYB-QF20-XPMCE-1051340 when I click on the file that I just get a list of files, when I try the My TV driver update and choose this directory it won't find anything, does anyone know how to install that to update the file. The download list says they are two updates of tv pilot.

    Maybe Toshiba could include a text file explaining in detail how to install these files? Can anyone help please. And nobody knows which file to copy to save a permanent channel registration, so I could re install the file in the directory so lost the complete channel list?

    Thanks in advance.


    Maybe I understood something wrong, but according to the prudence shown on the Toshiba download page, the TV-TUNER-QF20-XPMCE-103250526 driver is designed for the range of models between F20-101 and F20 - 135.
    Are you sure that this disc is designed for your computer model laptop too?

    Have you tried to install the update of dvbtahyb-qf20-xpmce-1051340 when the original pilot of the TV (factory settings) is preinstalled?

  • Qosmio F20-136: how to check the temperature of the CPU?

    someone knows how can I check what temperature turns or a program that will tell me and also is it possible to adjust fan settings?

    I have a Qosmio F20-136


    You can find in the management tool of power under the method of cooling setting of the cooling fan.
    Try to set it to the lower level. I know that cooling fan is sometimes too loud, but you must know that you have high technology with powerful hardware components unit. Material is placed on the square and must be properly cooled to avoid damage.

    I really put t whether a tool can show you the temperature of the CPU. Check in the advanced search if you can find a similar topic. Long ago, I read the discussion on this subject.

  • Tuner not found on the Qosmio F20-149

    Hello world

    I have a Qosmio F20-149. After the transfer of my place of residence in another city in the same country) I suddenly see that my media reports "tuner not found" when I try to access the TV. Also, when I try to configure the internet connection, I get an error message of the MC asked me to restart the computer or contact technical support. Can someone help me with this?

    thanking you in anticipation.
    Best wishes.


    I'm not an expert but tuner not found message cannot occur without any reason. There seems to be some hardware related issue and has nothing to do with your home.

    If you are 100% sure that everything was ok a few days ago, I recommend you to roll back OS to an earlier time using System Restore tool. Please also check status of TV tuner in Device Manager? Is this all is well?

  • Is there could change the FSB to Qosmio F20-149?

    Is it possible to change the FSB to the qosmio F20-149?

    Or can I disclose me the PLL of the FSB?

    Thank you very much...

    Boton / terrasight.net


    I put t think that it of possible to change (to increase) the FSB on a laptop.
    Nowhere it s not advised to change something on the CPU because of the overheating of the issue and use of OS unstable.

    I found an interesting site on the FSB.


  • Qosmio F20-155: how to use BT to share files with the mobile phone



    First a simple question: are you sure that your laptop supports Bluetooth?
    AFAIK the Qosmio F20-155 was delivered without the BT module.

    In addition, if you are not sure if the phone has BT then you can check the bottom of the unit. It should be placed a label BT if the Bluetooth has been installed.

    How to start the assessment without a device?

    Thank you


    Hi DV63,

    Welcome to the Forums EITHER!

    If you downloaded an evaluation version of LabVIEW your 30 day trial must begin immediately after being invited to enter a serial number. You can choose not to enter a serial number and this will begin your trial period. I recommend that you install OR-DAQmx device drivers; It is a software that allows you to communicate with the hardware from National Instruments DAQ. However, this facility will be particularly useful because it allows you to simulate an Instrument with the measurement and Automation Explorer (MAX); This means that you can immediately start the signals in LabVIEW.

  • How to start the agent on the database host computer that is being monitored

    Hi all
    I installed OEM I stopped getting alerts after the 1 server node is restarted. I followed RAC database.
    When I checked the status of the host agent I get the following output
    [[email protected] bin] $ pwd
    / u01/app/Oracle/agent11g/bin
    State of the agent emctl [[email protected] bin] $
    ORACLE_UNQNAME environment variable not defined. Please install ORACLE_UNQNAME in unique name of database.
    [[email protected] bin] $ export ORACLE_UNQNAME = MDM11
    State of the agent emctl [[email protected] bin] $
    The MA Configuration problem. /U01/app/Oracle/product/11.2.0/dbhome_1/rs1pre91dvdba01_MDM11 not found.

    And even on node 2
    [[email protected] bin] $ pwd
    / u01/app/Oracle/agent11g/bin
    [[email protected] bin] $ export ORACLE_UNQNAME = MDM12

    Please can I know how to start the agent on the nodes and also auto how the boot process of the agent on the server restart

    Thank you.

    I assume that you have installed your agent in the directory

    / u01/app/Oracle/agent11g/bin

    If this is correct then run the following commands

    Export ORACLE_HOME = / u01/app/oracle/agent11g /.
    export LD_LIBRARY_PATH = / u01/app/oracle/agent11g/lib

    PATH = $ORACLE_HOME/bin:. : $PATH; export PATH

    As a matter of fact, you need to set the environment variables separate for the agent to execute commands
    which are related to the agent. These distinct environment must be set correctly to ensure that the
    commands can be found in the appropriate directories...

    Then, run the status command emctl agent...
