Re: Satellite A300 - Partition D is not accessible

I have difficulty to open or play anything in the CD/DVD drive.

I no longer receive messages:
D: application not found, or
D: is not accessible. The request could not be performed because of an i/o device error.

Help, please



Check the Device Manager please and let us know if the optical disk drive is listed correctly there.
D partition is listed in Windows Explorer?

  • Satellite A300 - easy (key) does not not after SP2 update

    Satellite A300 easy (key) does not...
    I have recently upgraded my Vista SP1 to SP2 (do not know if this is the problem, but I'm pretty sure that's not)

    Yesterday, I discovered that my easy keys no longer work. Lights are out, when I press the keys, the light comes on and goes off again as they do normally, but no reaction on my screen (can not turn on any light without restarting my computer and select turned ON manually cannot transform media of windows opened by the touch and play the key do not work).

    Is it supposed to be a driver or something for this?

    Sorry for the bad English...


    A few days ago, I had the same problem on my laptop Qosmio. Lighting keys stopped working after installing some updates and the 3rd application programs the keys no longer works and also the lighting.
    At the end of the story, I had to reinstall Windows :(

    In any case, now, you should try to reinstall the Toshiba value added Package. He controls these buttons that you want to say and you can find it on the Toshiba site: decision-making supported Downloads & => Download drivers

    Before installing you need to remove the old version first, restart the computer, clean up your Windows with CCleaner for example, restart again and then install the new VAP.

    You have created DVDs of recovery following advice in the document s user manuals?

  • Satellite A300-1J1 - Vista does not start, a lot of corrupted files

    My PC (toshiba satellite A300 1J1) suffered some random freezes for the past month. A few days ago it froze so I restarted and it could not start. He got as far as the scrolling green bar under the name of microsoft and then progress any more. I tried to start it in all different modes but without prevail. I tried to do a system restore, but it can't find any restore point, or all the files to reset to factory specifications.

    The hard drive works as I could locate all my files via the command prompt. When I run the check disk tool it says many files are unreadable, so I want to reset the PC but can't due to lack of points on each side of the partioned reset disk.

    My PC came with no recovery disk and I fear that in the past, I accidentally deleted file recovery on the HARD drive. What can I do? will be Toshiba sent me disks so I ask them or I have to wipe the drive and buy windows 7 as a last resort?

    > will be Toshiba sent me disks so I ask them or I have to wipe the drive and buy windows 7 as a last resort?

    No, dude, it won't send you free and you must order for money you can also install Win copy yourself if you get the windows disk.

  • Satellite A300 - rotates but does not start


    I have a Satellite A300. I had several probems for the boot since 2 months ago: when I want to turn on my laptop, it turns on but the screen keeps black and it does not load the screen "Toshiba Leading Innovation". 'Satellite' (to the left of the mouse) light is on (it would go only about a second then to start and then turn off) and it will turn off.

    I try again for so many times with all the possibilities: without battery, only with the power adapter, two, but it does not start. I don't know what I can do. I always Hibernate my laptop because I'm afraid of can not start it the next day.

    Could you help me? If she cares: I had to buy a new battery (not original from Toshiba) because I had to change the original. No more changes to my laptop.

    Thank you very much and sorry for my English written: S


    Hey Buddy,

    > I had to buy a new battery (not original from Toshiba) because I had to change the original. No more changes to my laptop.
    Of course, it s always advisable using Toshiba original spare parts only, but if you notice the same problem with AC adapter only it s not related to the new battery.

    Just to make a better diagnosis: If you have connected an external monitor? The internal display is perhaps the problem and doesn't turn on and it would be useful if you are testing the situation and an external monitor.

    But this noise as a hardware problem serious and in this case, you can wait to contact an authorized service provider. Technicians professional diagnostic tools to make an accurate diagnosis and to Exchange defective equipment parts.

  • Satellite A300-1BZ: %1 is not a valid win32 application after change of themes

    Having had my Satellite A300-1BZ for a couple of years now, I found myself suddenly bored standard vista themes and started playing with change them. (I was after a ultimate black watch with change start menu and buttons etc.)

    In any case cut to the Chase, I went wrong somewhere with VistaGlazz through to replace something like shell32.dll
    As it said in the readme file I changed it to shell32.dll.bak

    My computer has continued to run fine until I ran a reboot. After that, I got after the log on screen was a blue screen with a mouse.

    Luckilly I have an iphone so managed to get on internet forums and find a solution which was to use a command in cmd.exe that fixed the problem.

    The only thing is now that I have a very basic windows Classic theme that when I try to change to Vista in the theme settings it gives the message:
    * "the theme could not load. %1 is not a valid win32 application. "

    Any help and step by step for the user base would be much appreciated! I guess it can't be that bad since Windows is still running and working properly!

    Thank you

    Hi tarmacsnortingmonster,

    That is the reason why I n t play with any 3rd themes part because I always read from time to time on various problems after installation. So I don't use Windows themes pre-installed and don t have problems.

    In any case, I think you should try a system restore to an earlier point before installing this theme.
    I hope this helps if not it is time to reinstall Windows, I think that :(

  • Satellite A300 - towers, but do not post


    I hope that someone has had the experience of a similar question to mine, I have a * Toshiba Satellite A300 * which is a couple of years old, but has been problem free until the last two weeks.

    The question:
    -Laptop turn on but does not post, power tubes, display work etc.
    -Let the battery fully discharged and now the power button for 60 seconds will sometimes allow the laptop to work again, but this work around less frequently works all the time.
    -The problem is the same with or without battery
    -Probably adapter works as the laptop occasionally works and works of battery/power LED

    Why the laptop power it will prevent start from time to time?
    Tips or advice would be great, apparently not a major hardware problem and it certainly doesn't seem to justify a replacement yet.

    Thank you


    Hmm... I guess that if only sometimes maybe it's a malfunction of the equipment. If your computer doesn't start it has nothing to do with Windows so it of not a software problem.

    Do you have the hardware upgrades to the last time? Perhaps the new RAM module is not compatible or something else.
    You can see the RAM modules to find errors using Memtest86.

    In the worst cases, the error is related to the motherboard and it is an expensive part of notebook.
    Is your laptop under warranty? Whether an ASP can repair free of charge.

  • Satellite A300-259 - Windows 7 not genuine

    I received my toshiba recovery media CD today and it has deleted the previous version of windows (vista) and installed windows 7.

    After all configurations, a message appears saying that windows in not authentic.
    I didn't expect this CD to remove vista entirely, but to start from the TI is out of the State of the box, but now I'm running on a different windows and may require a new product key. I tried to put the product key that is located on a label on the back of the laptop, but he says the key is invalid.

    I can't reinstall the previous version of windows that I do not have the CD but need to stick with windows 7 by the look of it.
    Want just a few solutions for this problem, should I leave it as is, contact toshiba or restart my laptop again.

    Help much appreciated.

    > I got my Toshiba recovery media CD today and it has deleted the previous version of windows (vista) and installed windows 7.

    I guess that you have received the disk Win 7 Upgrade from Toshiba.

    > I didn't expect this CD to remove vista entirely, but to start from the TI is out of the State of the box, but now I'm running on a different windows and may require a new product key

    First of all, I guess you used the Vista which has been pre-installed by Toshiba.
    This Vista has already been activated and would not require the key of the system!
    As I know the Win 7 wouldn't too much ask for the key.

  • Satellite A300-1NO - webcam does not work, but the LED lights


    I have a laptop Satellite A300-1NO, with Win 7 installed. My problem is that my webcam does not work always, when I want to use it. Sometimes, it works perfectly in Skype, WLM etc... but sometimes I see a white or a black screen with a 'loading circle' in there. Blue is the LED light, I can see it in Device Manager too, but there is no picture, just 'loading '. I tried to uninstall the driver and then reinstall it, I installed the new "camera Assistant for Toshiba", without success.

    Is there any solution for this?

    > Is there any solution for this?
    I put t think there is solution for this. If I understand you right there is a problem with software pre-installed. It is not easy to say why this is happening.

    I have Satellite A300 too and use it with Win7 32 bit. Webcam works fine all the time.

    One more thing: have you noticed this problem in the first moments after installing Win7 or later?
    Have you installed something that may be the reason for this?

  • Satellite A300 - Chicony webcam does not work after upgrade to windows 7

    I'm frustrated so I came here to see if anyone knows a way to help solve this problem.

    I have a Toshiba Satellite A300, which came with Windows Vista 64 - bit pre-installed. After about a year or two to have the laptop, I decided to upgrade to Windows 7 64 bit. In the process, I believe that the driver of my webcam (Chicony usb 2.0 camera) has been eliminated.

    When I go into the Device Manager in the Control Panel, the webcam is not listed; nor is "imaging devices."

    I tried to download the driver manually, but I get an error message "Webcam open fail." Restart the computer or the camera. »

    My computer has registered my webcam as 'unknown device '.

    If anyone knows how to solve this problem, please, I beg you, let me know.

    > My computer has registered my webcam as 'unknown device '.
    > I tried to download the driver manually, but I get an error message "Webcam open fail." Restart the computer or the camera. »

    This means that the the webcam driver is not installed correctly.
    Visit the page of European driver of Toshiba and install the software/driver webcam just for this model of laptop.

    If the installation fails, restart the laptop and the tent.
    This should solve the problem.
