Qosmio F20 - 153 - update Windows XP MCE not cause to see TV tuner

Just do the following updates;

Windows XP Windows tool for removing malicious software - September 2009 (KB890830) September 15, 2009
Windows XP Security Update for Windows Media Format Runtime 9, 9.5 & 11 for Windows XP SP 3 (KB968816) September 15, 2009
Office 2003 update for the junk e-mail Filter Outlook 2003 Microsoft Office (KB973515) September 15, 2009
Windows XP Security Update for Windows XP (KB956844) September 15, 2009
Windows XP Security Update for Windows XP (KB973768) on September 15, 2009
Windows XP update for Jscript 5.8 for Windows XP (KB971961) September 15, 2009

However, even if the System Manager recognizes the presence of the TV tuner, Media Center is no longer 'sees' as being installed.

I tried to uninstall and reinstall the drivers. Windows XP behaves as it should and no error is generated. However, Media Center still refuses to 'see' the tuner.

If I do system restore and restore to OS to forward these updates day and then MC works very well.

Does anyone else have this problem? In addition, no one knows which of these updates is causeing it or have a fix?

Thanks in advance.

I have no idea why MS updates cause this problem, but if the windows OS recognizes the TV tuner and if the TV tuner is listed in the device manager then it would mean that the TV tuner works correctly.

I think the MCE is the problem.
Are you using the latest MCE?

Here you will find the official page of MS MCE:

Maybe you will find some tips.

    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?

    Unfortunately, there is no link to download. Please order for money from Toshiba:

  • Qosmio F20-153 - ntoskrnl.exe file missing


    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.

    Hey Buddy,

    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!

  • Need your opinion on Qosmio F20-153


    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.

    I had problems installing an update and I thought that was the problem, so I followed the instructions and installed the update (KB2855336) on a clean restart. When I put the settings back to normal reboot I see the update succeeded, but the computer is still a good 10 minutes to restart.

  • Need the drivers Windows Vista for Qosmio F20-153

    Things to do any know when Toshiba will start producing F20-153 Windows Vista drivers?

    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.

  • Qosmio F20-153 - strange question DVD RAM


    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

  • Problems with latest updates Windows (KB) do not install & repeated notifications via the taskbar icon

    Hello everyone,

    In my view, there are many people who seem to have a similar problem to mine, although I was unable to find an answer to one of my questions in this post.

    Description of the problem:

    Although my Windows Update is defined on download & install updates during the night hours every day, the latest updates, KB26333880, KB2572073and KB2518864 are not be installed.  I went to the Windows Update site to check my editing history.  He showed the green/white checkmarks next to all 3 updates.  The record also showed that updates have been tempted 3 times during the night.  After clicking on the button "Express" on the Home Page, the results show 3 above updates, but show "0 bytes', then '0 download time. '

    To me, this indicates that there is no update to download, despite the yellow Shield of Notification of update continues to appear in the taskbar.

    Corrective measures attempted:

    1. I tried to download / install twice unsuccessfully using IE8 and FF (including restarting the computer).

    2. download & run the program MS Fixitattempted, but received a message which read, "an unexpected error has occurred, please try again later." No. error code has seen with this message.  (I could RECORD the program on my desktop... just couldn't run the establishment).

    3 tried to search for the presence of these updates using start > run > %windir%KB###.log (where the # is the individual number of update KB).  Every time - a message appears indicating that the file is not found.

    4 looked at the Add/Remove Programs list (with the Show updates checkbox checked).  No updates KB mentioned above could be found.

    5 with SAS, MBAMand Outpost Security Suite Pro scans revealed no malware/security issues.  (SAS and MBAM are used only as scanners on request).

    This problem with the updates does not download & repeated notifications being indicated in the taskbar has occurred many times before.  On this occasion, I called Microsoft several times before finally, my computer remotely accessible support person and spent about 50 minutes to fix the problem.

    (Also, it is noted that almost every support person I spoke with has always tried to tell me that MS is not help with the problem of this type.)  I had to be rather several in my reply... tell the person that MS IS in fact provide assistance free security-related Windows updates.  They now provide free assistance is unknown). Besides... I have more a phone number for States anyway.

    My questions to the community:

    1. is it possible to download & install these 3 updates?

    2 is there an explanation as to why MS Fixit program will not be installed, and if so, are there certain corrective measures I can take which will allow me to download & run this program?

    System Specs:

    Desktop Dell Dimension 3000 Tower;  WIN XP Pro SP3.  2 GB OF RAM;  3.00 gHz CPU;  Outpost Security Suite Pro.  MBAM Pro (on request only).  SAS (on request only);  SpywareBlaster;  IE8 & FF

    Thank you for your time and help, review!

  • Updates Windows 7 does not error code 80244019

    How to fix this update?

    Windows could not search for new updates of 80244019

    This tool says:

    If you receive this error when checking for updates in Windows Update, Windows Update servers may experience an unusually high number of requests for updates. Close Windows Update, wait 10 to 15 minutes, and then run Windows Update again. Alternatively, you can wait for Windows Update to run at its next scheduled time.

    If this does not work, try to add the Windows Update Web sites to your firewall exceptions list, and then rerun the update of Windows.

    Windows Firewall ships with this version of Windows and should already include these sites in the exceptions list. If you are using another firewall, see Help for the software publisher to see how to add these websites to your firewall exceptions list:

  • Updates Windows 7 does not download

    Hi all

    I have Windows 7-64 bit version and I normally have updates of Windows set to warn me when there are new updates, but do not install them - let me decide.

    I see 21 updates and now it is stuck on just that. I even set to automatically install updates, restarted the computer and tried this again once and no dice... part of these updates is my Windows Defender, which I use for anti virus, so I would really like to get it working again.

    Does anyone have an idea on what is current, or does not, as is the case? Thanks in advance... Oh, by the way, the green part of this bar is moving from one side to the other... so he said to me that he is not locked.
