Qosmio F20-153 - need TV antenna
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.
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.
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!
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 have a laptop QOSMIO F20-155. Recently, I formatted the computer. Unfortunately, I could not load the driver TV tuner. I downloaded all the drivers from the Toshiba web site. All the drivers are working well except the TV TUNER DRIVER.
Kindly help me to solve this problem. Please give me a link to download the driver to your website...
I lost the original CD.
Waiting for your answer...
I will be gratefull to you if you could send a mail to my email... [email protected]

I put t know what is happen on your laptop and why the pilot does not, but on the Toshiba driver page, you will find two TV tuner drivers: one for Windows XP and the second to Win MCE.
Do not forget that you are using the correct driver.
In addition if you don t use the Toshiba Recovery CD if you need to install the drivers of Toshiba and utilities in the correct order. It is very important. On the driver page, you will find the installation instructions.
Please follow this guideline.
Hi, I recently bought the laptop f20 - 137, but were not able to fully the product recovery needs (ex display, so loading of the store settings), I have not, however, make the Qosmio Player recovery disk, it has not been included in the box when I bought, nor has the product recovery, but I have now received a copy of this at Toshiba is there any where I can download the Qosmio Player to leave recovery?
He s strange because the Qosmio player recovery CD should be provided with the device.
As far as I know, you should get this media:
-Recovery media (CD or DVD)
-QOSMIO recovery media player
-Additional software CD
-MS Works 8.0
However, it should be possible to order all the CD at the Toshiba service partner in your country.
I buy this laptop to TV tuner 2 years ago and I have still a problem with the TV tuner, I tried all the drivers I found on your site and was recommended.
I can see all of the programs, but I its just for a small part of them
Of course, I use an external TV tuner, but I told you the main reason that I buy this laptop was the TV tuner.
Right now I m thinking to change my cell phone and I will give you this Qosmio to a friend... without the external TV tuner, so please if someone can help me with a good driver.
I think very serious for my new laptop to Toshiba, in case of 2 years can not find a good driver... it's amazing.
Boyfriend sorry but I don't understand two things in your first assignment:
-Why you write about the external TV tuner? What you mean with her? Do you need the driver for this TV tuner or what?
-If you have no sound for some channels I don't think it's because of the driver. Do you really think that the choice to make driver and turn on the sound for some channels? I don't think so.
You didn t even write how you watch television. Do you have cable TV? Sorry, but buddy who knows what exactly you do.
I have problems finding the new driver for my Toshiba Qosmio F-20/111 ' display Nvidia 6600 driver go ' for 1 year. I could not find a newer driver than 76.74... I wrote about it to support NVIDIA service but they told me: look at this page "www.laptopvideo2go.com": s. and I couldn't find something more recent.
So because of this situation, I can't play "BattleField 2" more effectively. This is a terrible video graphics for me. In the end, I need a newer driver to go for my 6600 76.74. If you give me a link for the download, it will be very good :)
Thank you. Kind regards.
Note: Toshiba Download Page has only 76.74 pilot. (it comes out on 08/08/2005: S)
What to say you need to know that the graphics drivers for laptops are very rare.
I also recommend the www.laptopvideo2go.com or the www.omegadrivers.net site.
A few words about the Toshiba drivers graphics;
These drivers are slightly modified display. These drivers support a thermal protection to prevent the GPU from damage.
If the temperature drops down to a critical level GPU performance decreases and the temperature drops.
The other graphics drivers don t supports this feature
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.
I couldn't find a driver for my laptop vista. Can I use F30 drivers for my laptop F20?
Of course, you can try to install the drivers of Qosmio F30 but the question is: drivers Vista F30 will work?
I think you should be able to install Vista on your F20.
But you will not be able to use the additional features of Toshiba Toshiba controls, keys FN, etc.
PS: I found very beautiful thread in the Qosmio G20 section.
Some of the guys discussed about Vista on the G20. Now for the G20 Vista drivers are not available, but FranciscoJr has handled this problem.
I am looking for a power cord, taken UK, compatible with my F20-. 149.
For the moment, I have a euro plug, but I need a UK plug.
Does anyone know if there is a power cord for the F20?
I have not found one in online stores.
PA2521E-2AC3 is a s Toshiba that adapters can be used all over the world with the appropriate AC outlet adapter universal sector.
I think that the appropriate mains adapter may be purchased from your local authorized service center city or provider some electronics dealers. You can also consult offers online on the internet.
Maybe you could use something like this:
I need NVIDIA GEFORCE Go 6600 for windows vista driver. But when I try to put the old driver he know that the driver, but windows vista does not support.
Thank you all answer me.
Unfortunately, it seems that you will not be able to use the Vista me TV tuner!
The Toshiba didn't publish all drivers vista for this unit and it seems that the drivers will not be published especially for this device ;(
Maybe you will test the graphics driver from another source
