After doing this operations is charing again, but a few minutes later lamb out...
What is this prob. and what we do


Hi Levent,

Regarding your power supply problem, I would recommend re-installing the utility of power management Toshiba since the Toshiba utility CD, (unless you use Microsoft Power settings of course. I then go into the utility of Toshiba power from the control panel and check that the power is as you want them to be.

Your ventilation issue is quite common (you can search this forum for similar positions), but in short, the cooling fans are blocked with dust and other debris over a period of time. You should clean this accumulation of CPU radiator by carefully removing the radiator under the laptop or by sucking debris with a household vacuum. Where the CPU is too hot the notebook our instantly down to avoid damage even if you notice a rapid increase in the speed of the fan before that happens.

  • Need advice on the new hard disk for Satellite A60 302

    I want a new hard drive in my laptop (Satellite A60-302) t. This is -, 1596,736,00.html drive, to adapt to the laptop?

    Answer to this question can give just anyone who has the same unit and tested it with the same HARD drive. Problem is that there is no exact specification on the latest BIOS updates and no one can say with certainty whether or not he will support.

  • Mini-PCI I have a Satellite A60-302 - myth or reality?


    I have a Satellite A60-302 (PSA60E-00J030HU) and theoretically there is no MiniPCI slot in the computer (at least it does not mention the Hungarian manual), but the online manual (preinstalled on your laptop) refers to a cover on the bottom as "Cover WLAN", that material incidentally doesn't not part of this model. (And the part of the motherboard under this coverage is not something that resembles a slot MiniPCI, well that according to the English manual and specifications online to some Toshiba Page, I found in the Linux knowledge base, it must be part of this config.)
    Allright, there is no MiniPCI, I said, I should buy a PCMCIA CardBus WiFi adapter. I thought I'll check on the toshiba online store, to be sure, I'm buying quality products. But when I choose 'Specific product Options' and choose my config, the Bank's research concludes _only_ MiniPCI solutions for my laptop, which theoretically (and physically) does not support.
    Is it not a bit strange? :)

    beginning of the "742" series machine was delivered with Wifi (Build-in).

    But even if a Mini PCI card would fit in your Machine, the problem is that you have no generation of antenna in.

    These are normally inside the display cover.

    So the best way is to buy a Wifi USB key. His fabulous work but not manufactured by Toshiba.

    Running perfectly with my A60-102...

    Good bye

    The drive is set up and could not be changed by a technician!

  • Satellite A60-302: black and white photo on TV


    I have connected my Satellite A60-302 to my TV using brand also SCART S-VIDEO AND TWIN PHONO LICENSE that I bought from maplins. Transfers of image and sound on TV when I press Fn + F5 buttons but the image is in black and white, the sound is ok.

    I tried the color on the tv settings but it makes no difference, any help would be appreciated


    The color on the TV settings won't help. Check please the port on your TV settings. As far as I know by the use of the pot from S-video to TV, it must be enabled properly to get the color. I put t know exactly how it works with cable SCART, but check out several channels if you should enable the option of scanning on your TV.

    I also hope that you bought the product of high quality.

  • How to format Satellite A60 302 without using the CD/DVD drive


    I have a laptop SATELLITE A60-302, and I had a problem with cd player. I want to format the computer (WIN XP) and I wanned to ask if I can format the computer not by the cd player but another way as disk on key or something...

    Thanks :)

    Your best bet might be trying to use an external CD/DVD drive to install Windows XP (must confirm that your laptop can boot from USB CD/DVD). I would not recommend it otherwise because they are pretty complicated and you will encounter other issues.


  • Upgrade to 1 gig Ram on a Satellite A60 302

    Hi there, 1st time user here
    I bought a Sodimm DDR 333 mhz 1gig of ram card for my Satellite A60-302 and installed today - but without success
    The laptop turns on but the screen remains black and then the laptop turns off, it also emitted a continuous beep. I thought it was because the RAM was too, but he can handle 1280MB of RAM and 256 enjoys so it should be able to handle
    RAM has not been affected by the static-hands then someone can help?
    Thank you very much

    You re right. The unit should be able to handle the module memory 1024Mo in one location.
    I have only one explanation why the laptop will not work after the upgrade.
    Either the module is not compatible and not right or it s simply corrupt.
    I recommend using the modules recommended by Toshiba.
    These are:
    PC2700 256 MB (PA3311U - 1 M 25)
    PC2700 512 MB (PA3312U - 1 M 51)
    1024MO PC2700 (PA3313U-1M1G)

    PA3313U-1M1G is a module of memory-SO DIMM 200-pin DDR 333 MHz PC2700.

  • Satellite A60-302: CD Player read DVDs and CDs but not burned discs

    I have a Toshiba laptop: Satellite A60-302 and I have a problem with the cd player. It can read DVDs and records I buy but it will not read burned discs (even the ones I burned with the portable computers own burner). Only from time to time, he will read a burned disc.
    I tried to clean the eye of laser of cd players, but it did not help.

    Anyone know what could be the problem?


    This sounds like the CD burner doesn't burn CD correctly.
    You suggested that you used different types of CD.
    In the user manual, you will find a list of compatible media.
    These media has been tested and it works correctly.

    But if this happens with all CD, so possibly the drive cannot work properly and only a replacement would solve that problem.

  • Power supply plug problems - Satellite A60

    Ive got a satellite A60-155 and its just out of warranty, but isn't there always the way I pulled the plug on the back of my laptop and the center of the pin of the plug on the laptop came out with it.
    for something that should be quiet robust is not, how many people have had this problem?

    I would be interested to know before I phone services to customers in the coming days as its only 12 months and 26 days and Yes have had warranty extended, but these things should not break up

    Hi Kenny,

    I have also experienced the center pin breaking on the my SA30 power outlet. As you rightly say, they are not particularly robust and can easily be damaged by something to catch the cable when it is plugged.

    The bad news is that the normal remedy is to replace the card mother:(sauf si vous pouvez trouver un réparateur prêt à souder sur une nouvelle prise de courant.)


  • Re: Several questions about the recovery of the Satellite L750 features

    I have several questions about the recovery of Satellite L750 features available to it. Any help and answers would be useful.

    (1) when I started the laptop first, he asked me to create a recovery CD incase I need to reinstall the operating system. But he also said that he built in the recovery partition, so therefore, I have to make a recovery cd or not?

    (2) will be the recovery CD is exactly the same as the recovery on the system partition?

    (3) is the partion of CD or recovery includes all the integrated software pre-installed with the laptop?

    (4) also in the device manage management it shows watch partion recovery but it is empty, is it true?

    (5) in the second partition (drive D) system, he has a record with what looks like the recovery of files and folders. Is it safe to move/remove it?


    I'll try to provide answers:
    1 - to ensure that everything works perfectly you don t need these discs, but if something goes wrong with the HARD drive you will not be able to do anything. When you have the recovery DVDs, you will still be able to install the recovery image and once again the factory settings. So my advice to you is: create these discs as soon as possible. Use only on DVD-R media and buy products of high quality (TDK or Verbatim).
    2 - Yes.
    3 - Yes.
    4 - No. Don t be confused with this.
    5. in a first time create restore DVD, and later you can do what you want. I put t know which files mean you but don t touch anything before that of the recovery disks to be created.

    In the past, many people have been experimenting with the structure of HARD drive and partitions and later was surprised when installing disk recovery HARD has been damaged. Don t make the same mistake.

    If you have any other questions you are welcome.

  • A few questions about Toshiab reocvery disk for Satellite P300-133

    Hello guys,.
    I had a few questions about unpleasant surprises of recovery:

    (* 1) * I just make recovery DVD using Toshiba Recovery Disk Creator and he asked initially for 2 DVDs - but when one has been done it does not require a second blank DVD. Is it possible all the Windows Vista system files to write on 1 DVD?

    (* 2) * if I could reinstall Windows Vista using recovery of HARD drive option (by pressing F8) without using the recovery DVD?

    (* 3) * HARD drive partitions that will be formatted (just system C: or C: and E :) using HARD drive recovery?

    (* 4) * what is DVD - Image of the hard drives or the installation of Vista recovery files?

    Its pretty bad idea to not include BONES on DVD when I paid for it.
    Thanks for all the Toshiba problems :(

    1. I think the recovery disk creator means 2 CDs. I also have a Portege M700 with Windows Vista and a DVD. I got it and after that, I have a clean install of Vista with all the drivers and tools of Toshiba. Nothing is missing.

    2. Yes, you can reinstall Vista using recovery of HARD drive option when you press F8 at startup. You don't need the recovery DVDs, but you should create a when your HARD drive get some errors or something else. If you need a new recovery DVDs, you paid for one.

    3 HARD drive and complete partitions will be formatted, so backup your data first on a DVD disk external DRIVE, USB stick or something else.
    After the reinstallation, you have factory settings.

    4. the recovery DVDs is an image of the HARD disk on the factory settings. If you perform a recovery, there are all the drivers and tools are already installed. Of course, on the disk are files of installations of Vista, but you can use this DVD on your Satellite P300. The disc cannot be used on another Satellite or on a PC.

    If you have any other questions, take a look in the user manual. There are a number in the formations of the recovery. It s in Chapter 3.

  • A few questions about the difference between the Satellite P70, L70, S70

    Hello, I have a lot of questions about the P70, L70, S70 series that come with a 1920 x 1080 panel.

    (1) what are the differences between the L70 and S70 series? With the exception of the RAM and HARD drive capacity, books seem pretty identical.

    (2) P70, L70, S70 doesn't support a 2nd HARD drive or it's just the P70 series that support?

    (3) all the three (P70, L70, S70 series) come with the same TFT panels?

    (4) of the above series, which supports mSata?

    (5) all the model of each series are delivered with support from mSata? For example, it could be that L70 - a - 13 m supports mSata is not the case of the L70-a-146?

    (6) all the foregoing, are delivered with a S - ATA II or III S - ATA interface?

    (7) who is the best of these series listed? I'm trying to understand what makes the big difference of S70 to P70 except for the envelope for example.

    Thank you in advance.

    > (1) what are the differences between the series L70 and S70? With the exception of the RAM and HARD drive capacity, books seem pretty identical.

    What models Sat L70 and S70 do you mean exactly? There are different L70-xxx-xxx and S70 models on the market that supports different hardware specifications.

    (> S70 2) P70, L70, support a 2nd drive HARD or is - it just the series P70 that support?
    As you can see in this [Sam P70 HDD replacement document, |] the P70 series supports the 2nd drive Bay HARD, BUT even if there is a 2nd HARD drive Bay, this does not mean that you can use the 2nd HARD drive. In the case where the 2nd HARD drive Bay are equipped with HARD drive connector, you can use the 2nd HARD drive

    I also found the [Sam L70/S70 HDD replacement |] the document on the Toshiba page and there I see this 2nd HARD drive Bay is not available

    (> 3) all three (P70, L70, S70 series) come with the same TFT panels?
    See point 1). Different P70, L70, S70 models were equipped with different material parts.

    (> 4) of the series above, which takes in charge mSata?
    As far as I know that some P70 models are equipped with an mSATA SSD of 256 GB.

    (> 5) do all the model of each series are delivered with support mSata? For example, it could be that L70 - a - 13 m supports mSata is not the case of the L70-a-146?
    See point 4) not all models supports the same hardware specifications

    (> 6) all of the above, come with a S - ATA II or III S - ATA interface?
    I don t think that SATA III is supported. I guess it would be SATA II

    (> 7) which is the best of these series listed? I'm trying to understand what makes the big difference of S70 to P70 except for the envelope for example.
    Not easy to answer because there are too many models released in Europea.
    And not all models are available in each country. So I guess you will have to look for the models that have been released in your country.

  • Toshiba power saver crash on Satellite A60


    I have a Satellite A60-297ITA bought with XP Home.
    Now, I bought a XP Pro and I install reformat all the laptop.
    Then I installed all the drivers downloaded from your site.
    The Installation of seems to work very well, but on reboot, I get an error:
    A fatal error has occurred. The program will end. Code: 0x7E.
    What can I do?

    Hello nviau

    As you know, it is not possible to create software and be sure that it works correctly in combination with other applications. The best example is the operating system you are using. It is usually many applications have an influence on other processes running, and it is possible that, in certain circumstances, occur a conflict or a malfunction.

    It is not easy to solve this problem, and the best way to solve it is to reinstall the device using recovery DVDs. On this way the unit will be own pre-installed and all tools and utilities work correctly again. If you want to do it back up all your data.

  • Question on the module memory for Satellite A60

    I have a Satellite A60-352, and I was wondering if I can put my module memory of my laptop on my desk. And another thing, where I find the module in my cell phone because I'm not.

    Thank you


    The fact is that the A60 was equipped with an internal memory (256 MB or 512 MB).
    This memory is not removable and so you only have one memory for an upgrade slot.
    Usually the A60 manages the PC2100 200 pin SODIMM (266 MHz) DDR modules.
    So, you can use the modules from different manufacturers that support the above specifications.

    Good bye

I would be grateful for any help.


    I ve got some bad news for you. If you can´t see Toshiba Logo in the boot process, it must be a hardware failure. You must take your distributor to service.
