Qosmio G10-133 & Vista can't recognize my memory stick


I installed VISTA on this laptop, and I had a few problems that you can imagine!

I can't recognize my memory stick. I can't find the drivers and that Windows is unable to solve the problem.

Someone got clues?

I'm also having a problem if I turned the laptop off. The only way I can get the power on button to work is to remove the power cable and the battery and then I turn on the laptop. If I don't take the power cable and the battery I get the green light on the power button, or no light at all, and by pressing seems to do nothing. I also have an orange light blinking on power light on the front of the laptop. I guess it's something to do with the thought of the computer it has hibernated or something?

What to say to boyfriend.
The Vista is not officially supported on the Qosmio G10 and the Vista drivers don t series there for this series.
Always is it that you need a card reader driver to use the memory sticks. But as I said above, these drivers are not available and don t exist.

What you can do is to check the drivers for G30 but I'm very skeptical that it will work on the G10.

Good bye

  • Qosmio G10-133 - Install Qosmio Player and using the recovery disk

    Hi again.

    My g10-133 was the mother of uypgraded installed by Toshiba that there are back and forward in his first year with problems of graphics chip, so they installed the motherboard with the 6200 chip chart.

    Until very recently, I installed Windows XP to one of my dead computers that I've ever had anywhere with my original recovery qosmio disc such that it has been damaged. I recently bought an other G10 as I wanted to replace the keyboard and display and it came with disks,

    I put in a raw player. I used the recovery of the Qosmio player disc, and this indicates that it is complete. I then installed the Toshiba Recovery disk that has Windows MCE on it. (I have now three original copies of the present). But when windows go to start, the computer gets past the Bios and then quickly goes to the blue screen of death... I tried to use break so that I can read this, but it does not work. I tried more than a windows disk, but not joy. I also had special instructions for Toshiba, which has the Qosmio updater on him, and also another drive which has some additional drivers.

    So far, I've tried all sorts and whenever I go to start the laptop, it crashes. The Toshiba recovery disc has two methods that an automatic and a step forward on (which I don't have a clue how to use). The automatic, which does not implement the normal windows installation, but evokes a Toshiba says... and it goes from 0% to 100% and ends each time.

    If I use my Windows XP disk from another pc it install fine. and the laptop is fine until it reaches download Windows SP3, which seems to slow everything down.

    I would like to install the Qosmio to style factory if pos.

    What you need to help your service provider which has replaced the motherboard. A long time ago I heard talking of this and what I know is that the machine must be ready for use: This means service must update the BIOS, verify compatibility of memory, RAID functions are not the same, Bios, EC/KBC and DMI must be updated and rewritten. The laptop owner must be willing to work with new hardware components.

    If I m remembering well this new mainboard has different chipset and recovery image that you are trying to install has really bad drivers inside. With other words: after the Exchange system motherboard drivers and the Qosmio Player require an update.

    You know the whole process is a bit complicated, but, as far as I know, Toshiba service provider must send you instructions for Qosmioplayer update and instructions for the update tool.

    At the moment I can't help you. Please call again and ask for help. If you will not get any help it let us know.

    I tried a technical support without success...
    Or does anyone have a G10 133 that has his drive hard 80gig of origin in what they could tell me what is the model number... Please!

    Reason being, I have the original tray and I need to buy an identical car to try to recover data

    Thanks in advance


    You n don't need to buy an original Toshiba HDD each different manufacturing HDD will work if it will be compatible with the standard of substantive law.
    I guess that the G10 is capable of managing the 100 GB maybe 120 GB hard drives.
    The laptop supports an EIDE interface and therefore, you should use HDD s supporting the IDE (ATA-5) increased.

  • XP update demolishes my Qosmio G10-133 screen resolution

    I'm running a two years old G10-133. Great and reliable machine. The reason why I bought it was because he has big screen resolution/sharpness for MS Word and Outlook emails texts.
    For various reasons that I do not download the MS Windows updates that are often available in a pop-up at the start (hint that they may bring more problems than they solve). In any case I have recently (despite running Norton Security all the time) picked up some kind of malware villain in Google which diverts approximately 50% of the links google after a search and then sends to an another search engine with links.

    The Norton firewall and windows not picking up these or clean them up, so I tried the free Spybot to get rid of them to no effect.

    Finally rang Toshiba Europe support and the guy he recommended that:

    (1) do not use Norton. Waste of time and money and slows down the machine. Download the new freeware Windows Defender instead.
    (2) do all the XP updates
    So I started with all the windows updates (charges), including Internet Explorer 7.

    Guess what, after restart the computer is a bit slow grumpy, but worse still, the screen resolution (sharpness and clarity of the text) has deteriorated in Word, Outlook and Explorer.

    So I called Toshiba support again (I'm on a contract of three years warranty) and they could not solve the problem or propose something and seemed surprised that happened. We checked the things of common screen resolution in control without result panels.

    Then I gave up, train of the restoration of the system before any updates.

    The computer is now stable and the resolution of screen back to where it was.

    Issues related to the:
    (1) can I get XP and 7 EXP updates and still get my old (better) screen resolution.
    (2) what to give up idea good/safe Norton for Windows Defender?
    (3) any ideas on how to prevent the diversion of Google links?

    Any help much appreciated

    1.) it's very strange and I have never heard bad display quality after the installation of the updates from Microsoft!
    I think you should try to contact the Microsoft support and maybe they know something about this strange behavior.
    But have you tried to update the graphic driver and/or BIOS?

    (2.) it is true. I installed the Norton System Works several months ago and my unit started very slowly with preinstalled Norton Antivirus.
    I removed and use and freeware AntiVirus application called "Antivir".
    I don't want to use the MS Windows Defender. But I'm not saying that this application is bad.

    (3) I don't know what you want to do, but I don't think it has anything to do with your Toshiba laptop ;)

  • Car power inverter to power a Qosmio G10 - 133

    Is there any adapter compatible with the G10 car & if so could you provide details - I've read the thread relating to the car adapter F10 but it couldn't find the car adapter there are referenced.
    I read in http://www.laptopbits.co.uk/Database_files/Mains_Invertors.htm
    that power inverters are preferred & intend to buy a Powerpack of Halfords 200 that can power up to 300 watt like laptops. Is it better to a car adapter & what happens if a danger to my laptop is associated with the use of this way to feed the G10 133


    Well, in my opinion, you should use the recommended Toshiba part. The other party which is not designed for this device can damage the laptop.

  • does not recognize the memory stick or mp3 player

    Can anyone help? I am trying to use an mp3 player, but when I click on it in my computer, that a message appears saying that the disk in drive g is not formatted do format you it now. The same thing seems whem I plug in my memory stick. When I tried a different pc, they work ok and they gave me options to play in windows media, etc. and take no action. In"my computer"they come as a hard but in another of those articles name pc disk rises and I can open, explore, and play the two elements. The memory stick was working ok when I connected the first time a few months ago but not now. In Device Manager, the names of the two usb devices are named but not in 'my computer '. I tried to sync in windows media player, but it keeps asking me to connect the device even after that I have try to refresh. Any help in this matter would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you very much

    A Webb

    Hey Webb,

    Follow the suggestions below for a possible solution:

    Method 1: I suggest to change the Bill of Exchange to the drive and then try to connect the device.

    How to change drive letter assignments in Windows XP


    Method 2: I also suggest that you scan your computer with the Microsoft Security Scanner, which would help us to get rid of viruses, spyware and other malicious software.

    The Microsoft Security Scanner is a downloadable security tool for free which allows analysis at the application and helps remove viruses, spyware and other malware. It works with your current antivirus software.



    Note: The Microsoft Safety Scanner ends 10 days after being downloaded. To restart a scan with the latest definitions of anti-malware, download and run the Microsoft Safety Scanner again.

    Important: While running scan on the hard drive if bad sectors are found on the hard drive when scanning try to repair this area if all available on which data may be lost.

    I hope this helps.

    PS runing system is Windows XP Media Center Edition 2002 service pack 2 (completing all windows updates)

    Stand by. If I understand you right on your Qosmio motherboard has been replaced and you update tool CD. Am I wrong?

    If so, I guess that you know very well how to use given the update tool CD. It is very important to use it on the right track. I'll try to explain how it should be done:

    1. as a first step, you must use the supplied restore CD
    2. at the end of the recovery procedure, you will see message
    Please, remove the recovery media and press [CTRL] + [ALT] + [delete] to restart

    to this place do not press this key combination, but remove the optical-drive recovery disk and insert the update tool CD into your computer and press [CTRL] + [ALT] + [delete] to restart
    3. when the screen goes black, press and hold the F12 key. When the Qosmio logo appears, release the F12 key.
    4 Select the CD/DVD-ROM drive (CD icon) and press ENTER
    5. after 5 minutes, the copy process is complete. The message that the media update of software, please do not remove it. Hit any key to stop displays
    Press any key to stop.
    6. turn on power to your laptop.
    7. installation of screen Windows appear, please follow the on-screen instructions to complete the installation.
    8. this process can take about 5 minutes and the computer will reboot to complete.

    If you install OS on this path, I assume that all hardware should work properly.
    Can you please confirm that you have install OS as described?

  • Qosmio G10-133 - battery not detected after upgrading to Windows 7

    Hello, I hope someone can help my frustrations here.

    In recent weeks, I successfully upgraded my laptop to Windows 7, an increase of memory to 2 GB, bought new power cord for laptop, new battery and resolved all the issues that Windows 7 has cast on me. The laptop and runs like one dream other than a question that seems to have had worse.

    The laptop no longer recognizes the new battery. (battery with a cross through it and a photo of current) For about a week after installing the battery, this has worked fine but now does not detect everything. I don't have any errors in Device Manager and windows recognized the ACPI etc battery inputs and has no problem. I also loaded the package of Toshiba value added that Windows 7 has found for me but still nothing. Battery not charge even though sometimes the battery works for about 30 seconds to start up if the battery is back removed and implemented, then stops again (once Windows loaded) I tried many things like the disabling of the driver, reinstall battery etc, but nothing. I tried the iniitally of battery with Windows XP and worked well.

    I have also searched the web and saw that many other laptops with Windows 7 have had this problem, including Toshibas. Some say update the BIOS, but Toshiba have not released an upgrade from the original in 2004 (which is for WIn XP Media Center), and there is no settings in my BIOS for ACPI etc.

    In addition, I can not calibrate the battery because I can't do anything with it. I don't think it's a question though.

    If anyone has any ideas I would really appreciate it or all the links to the drivers etc.

    If this is sorted my laptop should last for 5 years!

    Thanks for reading this.



    First of all, I doubt that many other laptops equipped with Windows 7 have this problem. I've never heard of this and normally charge the battery will not be controlled of the OS. It happens automatically and your battery will be charged if the AC/DC is plugged. If the OS doesn't affect it!

    To be honest, I also don t know why your battery isn't detected, but what happens if you turn off the laptop and let the AC/DC adapter plugged in for 24 hours? After that, it should be possible to work on the minute of the battery for 1 hour or more.

    If this isn't the case, it seems to be a hardware problem, maybe the battery doesn t work correctly and should be replaced. You should contact the retailer where you bought

    By the way: some nice and interesting tips on battery:

  • Qosmio G10 - 133 drivers for other devices

    Hi friends.

    Yes I know that it is an old laptop. I recently had to reinstall the software due to the failure of the hard drive. I always have problems. Toshiba has installed a new motherboard with the Nvidia Geforce Go 6600 video chipset upgrade years ago. Since then I always had problems of resettlement using the original disks. I was never able to reinstall the Qosmio Player and end up always with the laptop reboot after installation of the software, and goes to the blue screen of death. I have now abandoned the qosmio player with the installation discs (Windows MCE) and just install Windows XP. However, here's the problem:

    In Device Manager, I get some errors:

    Other peripheral States MULTIMEDIA VIDEO CONTROLLER does not... what the land is that and where can I find the driver?
    DEVICE UNKNOWN as does not work... what hell is this possible and what drivers?


    Take a look at the HOWTO:
