Question about Satellite L40 and Vista 32 bit

Hey all, I have the following problem.
I have Satellite L40 series 2 PC and tried to install vista ultimate 32 bit, and they freeze only on the process of "complete installation."
I read in some other forums and found it is not only my problem. I tried with 64 bit ultimate, it's all OK. It may be, the main problem is that it is not possible to install VISTA 32 bit.
I only ultimate now, so my question is if anyone knows or installed to another type of Vista 32 bit on these series?

Thanks before

As far as I know that all new models of Toshiba laptops come with Vista 32 bit. Satellite L40 is offered in three different models, and each one also comes with 32-bit operating system. If you have the recovery DVDs with your laptop is Vista 32 - bit OS. I assume it must be the Home Premium version.

I don't have a model L, but my model works well on Vista Ultimate.

    Have you installed the right graphics card driver?
    The Sat A300-1GN belongs to the PSAGCE series.
    I checked the page of the Toshiba driver and there are two pilots;
    I think that you should choose the ATI driver 8.477 display because this driver supports the Mobility Radeon HD 34xx/36xx chips.

    Other base system devices could be Bridge Media slot (for SD cards), touchpad, HDMI Control Manager.

    I didn't find these drivers 64-bit on Toshiba page. Maybe you should choose some drivers for Vista 32 bit

  • Problem with Satellite A300 and Vista 64 bit

    I just bought a Toshiba Satellite A300-1CO model: PSAJ4E-03R015PT, which came with an impressive 4 GB of ram device.
    I knew with Vista 32-bit, only 3 GB would be available, but since I got a license of Vista 64 bit I care, came home and installed it.
    When I looked up the drivers on the toshiba site, no drivers for Vista 64 bit drivers were available!
    I have now 4 GB or RAM available and I also have problems with face recognition software, microfone, sound card, card reader and a few other things.

    I searched the websites manufactors drivers and I managed to get some of these things barely usable, I don't think that it is a SD solution.
    Other laptop brands are made available long drivers for vista 64 bit some of them even for XP 64 bit!

    I would like to know how long take to Toshiba do official drivers available for vista 64 bit on their Web site.

    Best regards, Pedro P.

    I was looking for 64-bit drivers for my laptop, but since this is a new model, the drivers were not yet available. I checked a few weeks later and they were no longer available.

    Just wait awhile, they should be available soon.

  • Satellite P200 - 17 c: Question about tools Toshiba and Vista's Windows HotStart


    I just bought the Toshiba Notebook Satellie P200 - 17 c and I have a couple of questions which I hope you can answer in this forum? aShop = true

    1. under "Bundled software" at the link above, it says that the 'Toshiba value added"is included, but I do not see this CD/DVD in the box. (My Equium L10 was a value added CD in the box).

    The Toshiba user manual
    Norton Internet Security 2007 (including updates of free Internet for 90 days)
    Ulead DVD MovieWriter for TOSHIBA
    * Toshiba value added package *.
    Supervisor password utility
    Toshiba Assist
    Toshiba Speech System
    Chicony Camera Assistant Software
    Toshiba DVD player
    Microsoft Works 8.5 (with Office home and Student 2007 trial version)
    Toshiba Disc Creator
    Connectivity doctor

    Why is the Value Added Package not included and what exactly is included on the CD/DVD for the P200 - 17 c? I'm not too sure if I have all this either. I.e. ConfigFree, connectivity, Toshiba Assist etc doctor, but I check over the next hours and after return.

    2. under "Features", he mentions:

    * Microsoft Windows HotStart for instant-on entertainment *.

    But I don't see any reference to this in the manual of the owner and its operation. Can anyone help here please?

    3. what CD/DVD writing software is included? I'm looking for something like Roxio or Nero, utilities that I can use to create data and discs with audio and also, burn ISO files, but I see is Toshiba DiskcCreator.

    I have no doubt that I'll have a few more questions once I have a good look around the laptop and will post back, but is it for now.

    I would appreciate a response from someone, but as a direct comparison, especially those of the user who already have, or have purchased the P200 - 17 c.



    > Why is the value-added package not included and what exactly is included on the CD/DVD for the P200 - 17 c? I'm not too sure if I have all this either. I.e. ConfigFree, connectivity doctor, Toshiba Assist etc, but I check over the next hours and after return.

    The added value of Toshiba package is a collection of applications Toshiba unique like TOSHIBA, TOSHIBA Power Saver components common driver, utility password of TOSHIBA, TOSHIBA Flash Cards, etc.

    Applications of this are already installed on the image of Toshiba which is placed on the Toshiba Recovery CD.

    > Microsoft Windows HotStart for instant / entertainment
    As much I know Windows Hotstart in the Microsoft Windows Vista operating system offers built-in support for launch applications directly from the system startup.
    Manufacturers can take advantage of Windows HotStart to add buttons to access favourable to consumers through panels application front of the chassis.
    In your case, what are the control of Toshiba for example buttons.

    > What CD/DVD writing software is included?

    There should be a preinstalled tool called Toshiba Disc creator.
    The use of this too, you can create original audio CDs, data CDs and DVDs and backup of CD and DVD discs

    Hope that clarified everything

    the first is that sometimes my screan does not open while the laptop is open and functioning. I know that his work because when I plug another screen his everything is ok.
    the other problem is that I have an unknown device (ACPI\TOS6205)

    Can someone help me?

    Thank you

    > the first is that sometimes my screan does not open while the laptop is open and functioning properly
    It is still problematic to discuss problems that sometimes occur. When this happens you can see Toshiba welcome screen or hear sounds of windows?
    > another DIF, is that I have an unknown device (ACPI\TOS6205)
    I think that you need to install the bluetooth drivers.

    Material: 64-bit software architecture: Windows Vista Home Cisco Hardware (64-bit): 871w router Cisco Software: base of 12.4 T having a challenge with Windows Vista (64) using the SSL VPN. Use of IE, I can navigate to the url, both using the DNS name and IP address. I do not have a signed certificate, so I get the standard warning screen where you will need to click on the red x to continue. At this point, the progress bar moves for a fraction of a second and it's there. For troubleshooting I tried: - clearing cookies, cache, etc. - add url and IP to the Zone of confidence - reset areas rest default - disabled options window popup and phisher IE7 - off all 3rd party Manager BHO - withdrawal of MacAfee software suite - disable User Control that allowed me to make the sign in page, but after the signature - I had a blank white screen. Then, I downloaded Firefox 3.0 (newer) and tried to connect. After a series of guests to accept and download the certificate, I was able to connect and click on the Start button to start the session. The next little screen came as expected and he chose Java. I received a message that it could not install the Cisco AnyConnect Client's and I had to download it manually. Downloaded and installed the client software. Logging out of the browser and its closure - I could not access the page again. It appeared to hang again with a progress bar. I went to empty cache, cookies, passwords etc in Firefox and reloaded the application. Still, I was able to connect. However, I always received the message that the customer could not install and download manually. For fun, I exported the certificate on the desktop and imported into Internet Explorer. I tried the connection with IE, but he had a similar problem. I was told there was no client IPSEC for OS 64 bit (Vista at startup), but most of the new machines are 64 - bit OS systems. I would appreciate any support. Lucky me, the computer to which it is impossible to connect to the VPN is the home of the CEO of the company. The last person that wants to make him miserable.

    Cisco AnyConnect VPN Client is now available for the Windows operating systems, which includes Vista 32 and 64 bit. The Cisco AnyConnect VPN Client, Version 2.2 supports SSL and DTLS. It does not support IPSec at the moment.

  • Several questions about Satellite C850 and L850


    One of our schools recently brought 20 L850 and C850 Toshiba computers laptops.
    As most of the staff allows to connect to his projector VGA port, VGA The port must be strong.

    In recent days, we had 2 laptops with the Port VGA brought away from the laptop!
    Just one thumb on the cable when connected breaks this port,
    and we cannot obtain compensation from Toshiba, because it is our fault and has only 1 YEAR!
    Fixing this problem will cost us an entirely new mobo that will most likely cost to buy a new laptop.

    Out of the 20 that we made we had more half with its imperfections within the first year of use. * under the EU regulations with respect to the point of being quality market and adapted to the use that these issues should be fixed for at least 3 years from the date of purchase if not, the item is unsuitable for sale.

    Other issues we have had with these laptops within the first year of purchase were overheating, with the Fans to stop.

    We had a hard drive replaced TWICE with us having to buy one ourselves because Toshiba has refused to replace it as it was out of warranty of 2 weeks. (in only 1 year warranty)

    And finally a L850 that won't start. It stops at the Toshiba before even loading screen to the BIOS. (faulty CPU or memory) Once again this cell rupture within 2 years.


    I think of course to departs Toshiba laptops in the future for our chain of 18 schools which are due to cell replacements.

    We have also more than 100 HP Compaq Laptops in 2 schools in 2009, once is not what we asked HP for repairs. What happened to good quality computers laptops these days...?

    And what happened to the screws next to the VGA port to hold the laptop VGA cable to prevent the VGA problem...

    Not at all impressed.


    Sorry to hear all this. Of course, this isn't the best advice on Toshiba laptops, but the first thing that I m wondered after reading your ad was: why they bought these models L and C?

    Like any other laptop manufacturer Toshiba offers various models with different hardware platforms and different prices. Following my logic books used in the school must be fairly robust and designed to be more in use. If you compare the L and C series laptops with notebook series P for example, you will notice the difference in design, quality and manufacturing.

    Of course, there are big price difference and I can't imagine school have little budget and must turn to get machines but also save money.

    What else can be said? It's really annoying to have this kind of problems, especially if you need these machines to work. My only advice to you is to pick up more info on laptops of next time. It can be Toshiba or any other laptop manufacturer. Best thing you can do is to contact your local dealer and check several different models. Focus on quality and design.

    Bye and good luck

  • Question about Satellite L500

    I just purchased a Toshiba Satellite L500, it works, and the first thing he does get in the Menu "system". This is what it is supposed to do?

    I chose the option of 64-bit and now it comes up with a big 'DANGER' all my data will be overwritten. HELP please... do I go ahead with the system recovery thing.

    It's a new brand laptop ever been put forward.

    This model of laptop is not known to me, but I assume that your laptop comes with Vista 32 bit and Vista 64 - bit operating systems. When you start it for the first time you make a decision that you want to use.

    If you choose the 64-bit version one is removed and you can use installed version only.
    So think twice before choosing OS you want to use.

    Later, when the OS is installed first thing to do is to create a recovery installation DVD. If something goes wrong, you will be able to install the operating system selected using this disk.
    "" For use of DVD creation please preinstalled "Toshiba Recovery Disc Creator. I am sure that shortcut to the quick start, which you can find on the desktop.

  • A question about the methods and parameters.

    Hey guys, this is my first post here. I am very new to Java and done a bit of C++ before Java. I had a question about the methods and parameters. I do not understand the methods; I know they can be repeated when it is called, but it's almost everything. I also know that a program should have a class that contains the main method. What I really, really understand on methods is what the parameters are. I know they are in parentheses and that is it. Could you explain what they are? I really appreciate it. Thanks to all in advance. Best regards, Michael

    Taking an example:
    Suppose you calculate area of the rectangle you need two inputs one is the length and the width. Area = l X b, where l = length, b = width

    If your method, say, calculateAreaOfRectangle (length int, int width) will be two parameters as arguments.

    System.out.println ("field of rectangle:" + calculateAreaOfRectangle (40,30);)

    public int calculateAreaOfRectangle (int length, int width) {}
    int area;
    Area = length * width;
    return of area;

    So if you call this method then the output will be returned in 120.

    Parameters of a method are simply the input variables for the method of treatment for all calculations or something useful.

    And we cannot have methods inside the main method in Java. It is in the java syntax and if you do, it will throw a syntax error.

  • Update BIOS on Satellite A300 with Vista 64-bit

  • Install Windows 7 64 bit and Vista 32 bit on the same drive

    I have Vista 32 bit installed on my laptop. Media recovery is on a recovery partition, I have no recovery DVD such as $85 for something that should be included with my expensive laptop anyway, it is a bit much

    I have a drive to upgrade Windows 7 from my laptop manufacturer that allows me to each upgrade or to start from scratch.

    I want to install Windows 7 64 bit on a separate partition for the installation of my 32-bit Vista, but when I boot on the DVD there is no option to select the 32 or 64 bit, it only allows me to install the 32-bit version. I have partitions installed correctly then they arnt the problem. If I try to boot from the recovery partition to install Vista 64 bit on a separate partition, to upgreade can leave, he simply don't say so, it doesn't allow the recovery or replacement of my existing Vista installation. Also, often when I boot to recovery mode, by organizing 0 start up, he simply waits some time and the Vista of boots in any case.

    How should I do to dual boot Windows 7 64 bit and Vista 32-bit, as all possible ways I have tried do not work, and I can't afford to buy the madmen of... Toshiba recovery media ?

    The 'disc Windows 7 from the manufacturer of your laptop upgrade' can be used to improve the qualification system of operating from 32-bit of Windows Vista that was originally installed on the laptop.  It cannot be used for any other configuration or purpose. Carey Frisch

    Actually, this isn't just a "upgrade drive" it's a full disc of Windows 7, I know that I can install full Windows 7 32 bit in a separate partition for Vista.

    The problem is solved in any case, I managed to hide my Vista (C) install with Acronis and boot to the WIndows 7 DVD. It then allowed me to install Windows 7 64 bit on the other Partition, because he did not think that 32-bit Windows Vista has been installed on the HARD drive. I managed to deceive it by showing the menu options of 32 bits or 64 bits in this way... I assumed it was a protection system put in place by Microsoft to stop upgrade problems if soemone tried upgrade Vista 32, Windows 7 64

    Now under Vista 32 and Widnws 7 64 on the same computer.

  • Synchronization and Vista 64-bit

    I have a Palm TX and Vista 64-bit and having synchronization problems (do not recognize the device when I try to synchronize).  I couldn't install the original/old version of the software (v 4.1.2 I think) and downloaded v 6.2.  Installed, it cannot synchronize.  I tried what you said worked for you by opening the Palm as an administrator, but that made no difference to me.  If anyone knows other alternatives, it would be appreciated.

    How you try to synchronize?  Via USB?  It can be done this way, as mentioned in dozens of discussions here...

    You have a wireless network set up in your home?  I wrote a file "how to sync a Tx via Wifi with Vista64" above it "sticky" gray display at the top of this section of the forum.   I use this method with my Vista 64 bit laptop easily!


  • Question about the interruptions and priming


    I had a few questions about the startup and interruptions in a virtualized environment

    Assuming that, plenty of virtualization (no material assistance to virtualization of memory ).

    1 initialization: in an ordinary PC, the boot process starts with the BIOS, to expansion ROM, back to the BIOS and MBR secondary boot record, then grub (is it) and finally the operating system. In a virtualized environment with VMM running directly on top of hardware (Native VMM), how is the initialization of the different process, as I understand it takes BIOS-> Expansion ROM - > BIOS-MBR-> other record secondary-> VMM-> OS--> applications >. Am I right on that?

    2 breaks: VMM examines the source interruptions prior to the interruption, so in a multicore environment, assuming a 2 processor core, how the VMM decides on the kernel for which the interruption in intended, prior to shipment of the interruption. Interruptions are tag ID, said core ID?

    Thanks in advance

    It is simplistic but essentially correct.  A metaphor would be a little better thinking that the hypervisor/vmm is an operating system, except that the process on this operating system are requests or comments OSes.  If the BIOS-> OPROM-> BIOS-> MBR-> hypervisor-> init process of the hypervisor-> reviews of fork () s operating systems.  This can become blurred by the design choices (for example Xen/Hyper-V init start a coded parent hard partition that makes hypercalls privileged to fork() guest OSes; ESXi init runs a very limited subset of applications directly on the hypervisor and ESX Classic is somewhere between these approaches).

    There is a subtle distinction between "hypervisor" and "www."  The "hypervisor" is the operating system of single root (e.g. ESX) who interacts directly with the hardware and has access to everything; a hypervisor is not to be used to run virtual machines.  When we talk about a "hypervisor", the tendency is to describe something which is a BONE (although usually a minimal OS designed only to run virtual machines).  The "www" is the layer that allows a virtual machine run: it provides the interposition, virtualization and emulation services and can be plural (for example a vmm by guest operating system).  Architecture of VMware deal with these two separate components, while most other virtualization platforms merge the two.

    Strictly speaking, the interruption is not transmitted to a guest operating system - receives the hypervisor (or rather the VMM it transmits to the hypervisor), the hypervisor drivers interpret the interruption (for example reading package of NIC, I/O process of HBA, the timer tick completion), then after a new appropriate break in the guest OS.
