Re: Satellite A100-003 - need of Windows Vista 64-bit drivers
I want to upgrade my OS to Vista 64-bit, but I can't find it anywhere
I want the functions to work such as media buttons (stop, play,... etc.)
I got my cell phone as a gift from the Middle East, and now I'm having hard to upgrade
This is the Satellite A100-003
If the European driver of Toshiba page doesn t provide the driver 64 bit Vista for this laptop, then you have some many other opportunities to visit some 3rd Web sites and collect only drivers to clean hands.
I have the Satellite A100-003 and I've been running it with Windows XP since I it (triple). Now I want to install Windows 7 on it, however, I'm confused about what can I install on it.
I have a few places on the Toshiba site, I found that I can install Windows 7 (32 and 64 bit), but I can met some problems with the BIOS, in other places, I tried but could not find the drivers for Windows 7 64 bit.
So what is the case? My first goal is to install windows 7 64 bit, because I have 4 GB of RAM on my laptop, but even the 32 bit would be a better choice than XP right now.
So I can install Windows 7 64 bit on my laptop?
Thanks in advance for any answer!
Important before installing another OS, you check the Toshiba driver download page. Satellite A100-003 belongs to the PSAARE series and is therefore not available for Windows 7 drivers. You can only get the drivers for Windows XP and Vista 32 bit.
This means that you can try to install Windows 7 because Vista drivers most also work on Windows 7.
If this isn't the case you find newer drivers yourself, maybe you can find something.
Hello, I want to improve my A100-811 OS to Windows Vista Ultimate Edition instead of WinXP.
I find the drivers for this model easily... will be any problems after the upgrade?
Vista will work very well on this model?
the machine is vista ready, then it shouldn´t be a problem to install vista on it. With regard to the ultimate edition: I do not know how the performance will be because things like aero or some other 'system tools' slow the machine down really low. It might be better to stay in XP until they release the first servicepack for Vista (no matter what edition, global it s for all versions ;)).
So if you want to REALLY do, so I give you here a link (http://pc-support.toshiba-europe.com/vista/) where you can search for drivers for your machine, and you should do something like downloading all the drivers, burn them on CD or put on a USB key, back up all your data and then install vista after you have formatted the hard drive.
Good luck buddy
Hello, I would like to know if Windows updater automatic/updates updated, update the drivers on a windows Vista 64-bit. And if I update drivers through Driversupport.com it will improve my performance of browsers? In general it is necessary to regularly update the drivers? This will help with browsers not supported?
Thank you for responding.
Windows Update does work just in pc hardware updates/software/drivers. If you have specific
controllers PC which are necessary, you're best bet is to go to the web pc mfg. Although Win 7 on the
MFG site are outdated. If it's a pc intel, go to: intel.com/support/software/drivers,locate the
Intel update utility, it scans any pc processor intel for installation updates, & is common or browse intel
Download Center/chipset software.
You're browser, so up-to-date, does not work as well as pc offers...
Can you please tell me if I install Windows 7 64 bit where can I find the drivers, because they are not listed on the Toshiba site.
> where I can find the drivers, because they are not listed on the Toshiba site.
That of the point because the drivers provided for this model, you can find on the official website of Toshiba. There's no other place where you can download the pre-tested and official drivers for Toshiba laptops.
Theoretically, there s no problem to install Windows 7, but you don't have to search the drivers yourself on other sites like:
An alternative you can try 64 bit Vista drivers. Usually they should work on Windows 7 too.
I want to my hard drive of the C660-10F to a storage network using Ghost 15 recovery disk backup CD. So I have to configure the recovery disk bootable CD with the driver LAN C660-10F for XP 32 bit to get access to the network at the start of this CD. When I use the file lan - en - 20101105155404.zip with XP drivers from the Toshiba download page I get the error message
Impossible to copy a device driver 64-bit hardware for a DTH of 32-bit image. One or more binary files listed in... does not match the target DTH platform
It seems that XP drivers contain partially 64-bit files. Same problem when using the original drivers Realtek PCIe FE Family Controller! Where I can I get running 32 - bit XP drivers for the LAN of the C660-10F controller?
All Windows XP drivers on the Toshiba Web site are for XP 32 bit version for 64-bit was never supported.
What you can do to test the Realtek drivers directly:
If it doesn t work I think you must communicate directly with the external HARD disk. Most NAS devices also have the USB port.
Hi guys, I would like to ask you a difficult question for me :)
I have Toshiba Satellite A100 - 784 PSAANE with Windows Vista Home Basic 32-bit OEM Czech and
DVD from Toshiba product recovery. I converted (boxed) Windows Vista Home Premium SP1 Eng as a gift
There are. And now to the point :) - I would like to install this new Vista Home Premium instead of
Home base OEM.
1.) am I allowed to install Home Premium without any problem? (I'm worried the WinRE partition)
2.) if I can't do it because of the WinRE partition, can I save this partition and remove it?
(3.) if I do, I am able to download all the drivers from Toshiba site driver Toshiba (value
added package for the most part)?
4.) I am able to download all the utilities Toshiba?
5.) if I use the product Recovery DVD in the future (with this Home Basic OEM), it will work if WinRE partition
Thank you for your response.
(1) you can install the new Vista easily. When installing new Vista installation program should create a new WinRE partition too. If don t be worried. But I recommend creating a backup of your important files such as mp3, photos, etc...
(2) you can do the installation should be possible and should go smoothly. But don t forget to include the SATA drivers that are necessary to recognize the HARD drive. On the Toshiba page, you might find the Intel Storage Manager that contains the SATA driver. Include the driver during the installation procedure using the F6 key.
(3) Yes, Vista drivers should appear on the page of the European driver Toshiba.
(4) see point 3 ;)
(5) the product recovery DVD will format the whole HARD drive. It will delete the partitions and all will remove the HARD drive. And it will also create the new WinRE partition. Simply said; the Toshiba Vista recovery DVDs will fix the laptop back to factory settings
Currently, I have installed Windows 7 Ultimate (32 bit) in my HP 530 Notebook PC and I am looking for the driver that is compatible with this model. I searched through other forums and they said all I have to do is download the Windows Vista(32-bit) drivers, but some drivers are not compatible. Can you please give me links where can I find drivers for WIndows 7 Ultimate(32-bit) on HP 530? Thank you in advance.
Once you have a new installation of the operating system Windows 7, you can check the Windows Update and it will give you all the necessary drivers you need. It is a good feature of Windows 7.
I ' v I just A100-003 with Vista, but reinstall W - XP. What driver I have to get a Fn key work properly? Only Fn + F5 (switch to VGA output) works well. I can't adjust brightness disp., sound mute or touchpad switch. Where can I find a driver for Windows XP Home edition solve this problem?
Satellite A100-003 is a part of the PSAARE series. I visited the page European driver of Toshiba, but I found only the acoustic silence, help them and the driver sound
Other XP drivers are not available.
You can try to download and install the tools (Touch Pad on / off Utility, Hotkey Utility)
etc.) Another A100 series I don't know but maybe it will work if you do not have to give up this feature m
I have a laptop Satellite A100-003 with preinstalled in Windows Vista.
When I try to connect to my router with WPA - PSK (TKIP) I have error:
Wireless authentication failed because of a time-out.
My laptop and the router configured properly! I installed the new drivers intel 3945ABG chip.
WPA2-PSK and WEP are working very well.
The same thing happened on my old laptop.
I was not able to establish the WiFi connection for more than 1 min with WPA encryption.
I downloaded the latest Atheros driver and updated everything.
Everything works very well with WEP but not WPA.
Then I disabled the option to clean Windows configuration and use the Atheros utility. Now everything works fine!
I recommend using the Intel Proset utility and check all the possible settings!
Can someone help me with this.
My laptop is a new Satellite Pro A120-185 with Windows Vista.
I had my last configuration less portable, but you know what? He was faster!
I'm supposed to have cetrino duo 2, 2 GHz and cach of 4 MB, FSB 667 MHz, RAM 1 GB, even though they are at 533 MHz, 100 GB 5400 RPM HARD drive / MIN.
It is slow, not only starting, programs opening, plays something, the browser and even to copy from the CD to the hard drive sometimes give me time 4 days left!
Clicking on something takes forever. What's wrong?
Need less to say that with vista no and I mean none, of my devices are busy. Dongle Bluetooth, USB disk, printer, NAS, and and...
Please don t forget that Vista has been installed on your laptop and the additional tools of Toshiba and the utilities that control many additional features!
There is a huge difference between Vista and early Microsoft operating systems.
The Vista eat computer resources and many devices old don t work or cannot be installed because the 3rd device manufacturers don t provide Vista drivers!
In my opinion an upgrade to 2 GB ram would increases the performance of laptop.
All programs and utilities could be loaded more quickly
I have a Satellite A100-003 and I just installed vista 64-bit, which is the correct for toshiba value added package, because I get an error at the end of the installation. Thank you
First of all the buddy I wonder about your first message.
> I just installed vista 64-bit, which is the correct version for Toshiba package extra
I visited the Toshiba European page and I didn t find drivers for Vista 64 bit and VAP for Satellite A100 - 003 PSAARE.
Because of this, I DON T wonder that you receive error messages.
The error messages appear because you use wrong and NOT compatible software.
You have updated the BIOS?
OK, this grand but the BIOS is designed for Vista 32 bit and not 64 bit.
So it s no matter if the BIOS has been updated or not.
So he just said; Don t install the VAP for Vista 32 bit on 64 bit Vista version
When can I get the drivers for Windows Vista 64-bit? Or I have to intall drivers 32-bit on my 64 bit Vista operating system?
Please links ;)
What Satellite model do you have?
You cannot install the 32-bit drivers, you need 64-bit. I think 64-bit is not available for a laptop Satellite L but you can search on the Toshiba site:
http://EU.computers.Toshiba-Europe.com-online decision-making supported Downloads & => Download drivers
In addition, you can also search on external Web sites for 64-bit drivers.
I have a Satellite A100-003 (PSAARE) with 32-bit Vista installed and 2 GB of RAM (1024 + 1024 DDR2 533 MHz).
I was wondering if it is possible to change the 1 RAM (1024MB) with this RAM: 2 GB DDR2 667 MHz?
Support page says that this laptop supports up to 4 GB of RAM total.
Thank you in advance.
Generally this information in the user manual it s always mentioned in the manual that is preinstalled on your laptop.
I downloaded the manual on the Toshiba page and found this:
Slots _Memory: _
+ PC4200 256 MB or 512 MB or 1024 MB modules of memory can be installed in the locations of two memory for a max memory 2048 MB system. +
_Memory expansion; _
Only the memory modules with the number of following parts can be installed:
256 MB PA338QU - 1 M 25
512 MB PA3412U - 1 M 51
By the way; the 32 bit OS Vista won't recognize the 4 GB of RAM due to the limitation of the 32-bit operating system. The 32-bit OS can handle max 3.2 GB.
I have a Satellite A100-003 (PSAARE) Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit installed and 2 GB of RAM (1024 + 1024 DDR2 533 MHz).
I want to improve my system with 2x2gb DDR2 667 MHz Ram.
When I use 2x2gb Rams, my system recognizes them?
Or he will recognize less than 4 GB?
Is there a link between the ram and 32 bit OS?
What are your suggestions?
> When I use 2x2gb Rams, my system recognizes them?
> Or it will recognize less than 4 GB
You use the 32-bit Windows System. This means that your Windows operating system can recognize 3.2 GB of RAM max. It's max possible RAM for 32-bit systems.
But as far as I know that it takes in charge max 2 GB of RAM. Has been mentioned in the page manual user 22 and 33
