Re: Satellite C660/C660D will using clear data on the D partition recovery?

Therefore data on D safe if I use the recovery?

Thank you


My knowledge using Recovery Disk format the entire HARD drive and all the partitions would be created again during this process.
This means that your data on the D partition are not safe.

But after my experience, retrieve the use of the HARD disk format only the partition system (C) not very well that if this applies to all laptops Toshiba so maybe you should test this first time in such a case would recommend backup data if partition D should be deleted.

  • Satellite A300-1J1: cannot use F8 to start the HARD drive recovery process

    I just brought a laptop Toshiba Satellite A300-1j1, and at the same time got the upgrade to Vista Ultimate disk at the same time.

    Straight out I went to a sweet upgrade to Ultimate, which failed, and restored in Premuim laptop.

    Stupidly I immediately then a hard install to ultimate who "worked", but of course the drivers to run the laptop has not been installed, I decided to go back to factory settings and try to get Ultimate again once.

    However to use F8 at startup is does not give me the option to restore, and since, I've learned that I should do a set of recovery discs, which I did not.

    Installation, the data is still on the disk 'E', so is anyway I can always use it to make these discs or what should I do?

    Thank you for your help,

    It's your biggest mistake.
    > Installation, data are still on the 'E' drive, is it so in any way I can still use it to make these discs or what should I do?
    There is nothing you can do to create recovery DVDs. If you want to have the original recovery DVD you must buy it.

  • Re: Overheating and lag issues on the Satellite C660/C660D

    Hello community of Toshiba

    I am a new user of Toshiba, I have a new Toshiba laptop as a model of its Satellite C660 / C660D, I use my new laptop for 6 months and I have some kind of a lot of time on my laptop. Sometimes I keep it open for more than 10 hours.

    My problem is like 3-4 months at the bottom right of the screen there is a caution came out as "there's something wrong with your hard drive, you should give it to any service of Toshiba for warranty".
    But it happened because I played on users, I mean users option for windows, not something material, changing just the current user name caused this and he now has weird name when I reversed the name change; He turned to something like TOSH ~ 1, etc.

    After several times, I mean like 1 month ago, my computer got very slow. Video games with their high resolution, but now the phone LAGS even I put it in low resolution, I played... I did not change any material or touched. But it is frustrating to see that I can't do the things I used to do more.

    Another thing is, I'm afraid of the heat from the laptop. Is it normal to have 49-50 degrees? Because when I play games, it is around this level. I live in a hot city.

    Some people asked me to use HD Tune to check that if I have a bad sector on the hard drive, I did. Does not work either.
    I deleted some of my files to get the free space on my HARD drive also, likely 150 concerts altogether. I even wiped the empty space in my HDD via CCleaner. I often do the basis of registry-fix with it as well. Movies and games flash hangs out as well. And sometimes when I watch videos, the sound cuts, so I have to pause, and then click play it again to fix it but it happens in various video players, not youtube. Very probably all watching anime.

    And what do I do? I don't want to go for the service, I'm sure they'll make me wait several weeks of 100%. I use usually my laptop with its adapter. Oh and, over the life of my laptop, 2 - 3 times he got stopped himself while it wasn't on the map whenever I check, he was really but really hot.

    So, what should I do? I don't want to open the computer to look inside, I do not understand, and he would risk my 2 year warranty.

    I am looking forward for your answers, I'll be very happy. Thank you.

    It is not easy to say what the problem is here. In General, you should think about upgrading the RAM to the maximum level. With more RAM laptop should have more power and different operations should be made much more quickly.

    To make my laptop better and faster I ve upgraded RAM to the maximum level and also changed SSD HARD drive. So big difference there and phone now works like a rocket. Think about upgrading RAM.
    > Another thing is, I'm afraid of the heat from the laptop. Is it normal to have 49-50 degrees?
    From my point of view, this temperature is normal and certainly not too high. When you use your laptop, place it on the office and ensure that the cooling fan and cooling rack are free and not blocked.

    Don t open your laptop. Anyway, you can't do anything except to void your warranty. RAM upgrade can be done by the owner of the laptop and it will not void your warranty.

  • Upgrade of RAM video on Satellite C660/C660D


    Stayes manual that I can improve my video memory dedicated, up to 4 GB, but I can't find this option in Advanced Option or in the Bios, I have a Satellite C660/C660D.

    Furthermore, my CPU is supporting 16 GB and my motherboard also, why can't I put on 16?, because in the manual it says that 8!

    Kind regards


    I don't know what model you have exactly, but video Ram cannot be upgraded directly. All you can do is upgrade RAM. With more RAM, more memory will be used for graphical operations.

  • Satellite C660 C660D - Webcam color or black and white?


    I was just wondering if the web camera on the Satellite C660/C660D is color or black and white?
    If its color, how can I change the color?

    Thank you.


    Of course he came s color.
    It s a common webcam you have just black and white webcam photo?
    In your case I would recommend you the webcam software options.
    Start the camera Assistant software, and in properties, you can find the option called backlight Compensation. Check this option.
    Also in the Image tab, you will find some controls like: brightness, gamma, hue, saturation and sharpness. Play with these settings.

    It is a fault, I don't expect this brand

    Thanks for any help


    > I am disappointed to see the SHIFT key (left) and the CTRL pressed, causing the screen to go black intermittently when you type my blog...

    What does this mean exactly? Press SHIFT and CTRL button turn off the display, and you are not able to see anything on the monitor?
    Is this good?

    Have you checked if this happens with the help of an external USB keyboard too?
    If this isn't the case, I guess that your keyboard is malfunctioning and needs to be replaced.

    One of my friends had a problem with my keyboard. The cursor jumped around and some characters are displayed two times this could be resolved by the BIOS update I m do not know if your laptop uses the latest version of the BIOS, but you can check this too.

  • Slow Super Satellite C660/C660D

    My mother bought a Tosh Satellite C660/C660D about 5 months ago. On the first day, it was slower than a snail with a cold.

    * Problem: *.
    When you click the Start button, it may take a good 10-20 seconds for the menu is displayed. When you select say MS Word, which can take 30 to 40 seconds to load up. Even opening IE can take a good 30 seconds, then theres time for opening in addition to this Web site.

    > System Monitor shows (between 3% and 7% CPU), (physical memory (84% used)

    In my opinion, you should pass the RAM.
    84% is already used by the system, so it takes more time to start other applications.
    Your laptop uses 1 GB of RAM running Win7 64 bit guy I put t surprise me that your laptop is slow.

    I recommend you to upgrade the RAM to 2 GB or better 3 GB or 4 GB of RAM

  • Satellite C660/C660D - Webcam does not work

    I recently got the Toshiba satellite c660/c660D laptop for my 21st birthday in July. It is said there is a built-in webcam, but I can't see it or find it. Also when I try to use videoconferencing on Skype, he said that it is not important which web camera connected.

    I was wondering how I can get the web camera work? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

    What operating system do you use?
    When you open Device Manager check please if webcam is in the list. You can find it under imaging devices.

    Also check the BIOS settings. I'm not sure but maybe webcam is disabled it. Check it out.

  • Satellite C660/C660D starts not (black screen)

    So this morning after having attempted to power my Toshiba Satellite C660/C660D upward I met up with a black screen.

    The power lights both work and light, fans the vortex when I turn on but nothing ever comes on the screen, I was wondering if someone could help here?

    It is less than 3 months.

    To be honest I really don t know how to help you.
    Remove the battery, leave the laptop for a while and try to start the laptop with AC power only. Try to do several times with or without battery. If nothing is done it must be a hardware problem, so I recommend you contact Toshiba service and ask for help.

    Guarantee is valid, then there is no reason to worry about this.

  • How Golden Gate will use change data Capture (CDC) in SQLserver2008R2

    How Golden Gate will use change data Capture (CDC) in SQL server 2008 R2. How much space it will occupy for each table when it erases the data and what will be the retention period for the tables of the CDC.

    So, here's what happens next. Normally, when a tranlog backup occurs, SQL Server may decide to release the tranlog space after the backup of the log, for transactions that have been committed and saved.

    When you activate a form any replication, like with OGG and allowing TRANDATA, you need to eat this truncation periodically. So with your configuration, even if the log backup occurs over 15 minutes, data in the journal are not allowed to be released after the log backup until the log backup that occurs after the 4th consecutive time of work.

    It is fine if you are not concerned about the lack of free newspaper in 4 hours. Just something to keep in mind.
