Qosmio F20 - 153 - stuck on the log in 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:
[Toshiba drivers | http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com/innovation/download_drivers_bios.jsp]
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!
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.
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 recently bought a laptop Qosmio F20, who is currently connected to the Internet via a router/modem WiFi Netgear (DG834v2).
I tried to use MSN messenger v7.5 (7.5.0311 and 7.5.0324) with a webcam Creative NX () to make a video call.
But the sound of the person I'm talking to is so distorted, it is impossible to have a conversation (I tried with several of my friends, who all have good sound on their end).
However, if I have an audio only (no video) conversation, I have a perfect sound.
Despite my best efforts (update drivers, reinstall messenger, windows firewall ok for messenger etc...) I've had no chance of finding the problem so far. If anyone has any suggestions I would be very grateful.
Thanks in advance.
You suggested that the sound working properly without the video connection.
In my opinion, it happens because of the webcam. Maybe the software has a bad influence on the sound.
This is not a product of Toshiba, and Toshiba is not responsible for any 3rd party device.
I recommend you to check the site of the manufacture of cam. Maybe you will find the solution.
There, they show a firmware for my DVD 840 years! Why? Where to find a firmware for my drive?
There are different models Qosmio F20 and so I guess that the units were delivered with different drives. Maybe the update of the firmware doesn t exist for UJ-840 years.
But a question; Why do you want to update the firmware?
Hi, some time ago I disabled the ir on my qosmio F20-154 port, as I saw no need.
Now half a year later, I've forgotten how to get it (for a new laptop).
I see very little in the manual wonder, if I need to use the remote control receiver?
You forgot how to activate the IrDA? ;)
As far as I know the IrDA port is not available on this device.
Check Device Manager if there is no IrDA devices appears.
I think that you will find nothing, because there is no such thing as the IrDA port.
Of course, it is possible that you received an IrDA device for the use of the remote control, but you cannot use it to transfer files.
I installed Win 2000 on a Qosmio F20-155 computer and I get an error like this when I start the TOSHIBA controls control panel. Could someone help me please?
"An error occurred while windows was working with the Control Panel file C:\Program Toshiba Toshiba Controls\ToshSrv.cpl.
I checked the page of the Toshiba driver and there is no drivers Toshiba for W2k on the Qosmio F20. Where did you get the drivers of control?
You need a driver for Toshiba in particular to use the commands. But there is no driver for W2k. In this case, the controls cannot function properly.

Have you used the Toshiba Recovery CD or did you install the operating system from the original CD of Win XP?
As far as I know the recovery procedure is very easy to use and it should work without any problems.
Good, my second and last question (I hope).
The F20 was a "microphone".
How to use it?
Does this mean that I will not need an external microphone at any point?
It would be very interesting to know the name of your Qosmio F20 - xxx, because there are many F20 with a different hardware configuration.
I found some Qosmios F20 without the internal microphone on the Toshiba site.
In this case, you can only use an external microphone.
But if you laptop should internal microphone, it should be possible to enable this feature under control panel sound and Audio Devices tab, Advanced button Volume.
For the past two weeks, if I simply close my laptop while it is running, most of the time when I try to open it up my wireless network does not connect automatically. I have to click 'Connect to' in my Start menu and manually connect to the network. The only problem is, sometimes it will fail to find a network and when I try to manually go to 'Connect to', it does nothing. Nothing comes up at all. I have to restart my computer. Once I try to restart, it sticks on the screen "Logging Off". I also tried to disconnect just opened a session back, but it's still stuck on this screen. I am then forced to make a hard closed down by holding down the power button.

I have a model F20, but have lost the antenna adapter can someone tell me where to buy a new.
It is an unusual size, and no one lists I can find.
You can order the adapter antenna at the Toshiba service partner in your country.
As I know the cable antenna adapter bit was delivered with the laptop. Therefore, you should be able to order it.
See the Toshiba page for the database of all FSA worldwide
Hi ppl, I just read the manual of my laptop and I realized something that I didn't realize before
I can use my remote control without using the "infrared adapter" using the USB connection, but it does not work inside the Win XP MCE, but I can use it to turn on my laptop and off and use other features, I will try in the future to use some other aplications with the remote control. I guess many of you guys realized it when you bought your laptop, but I said at the beginning when I opened the package ' what the hell? remote control... but I really need this adapter? Sherazade, that sucks.
by the way someone is using the remote control with other applications (such as ahead nero, chis tv, or linux inside)?
I downloaded the manual for this unit, and according to the information of the remote control receiver is required if you want to use the MCE Remote control.
In addition, remote controls USB only works with Win MCE and so cannot be used directly with Qosmio Player
Additional some application programs can not supported control functions remotely.
