Running Fedora core 6 Satego P100-10U would become very hot

Hi all

I run Fedora Core 6 on my laptop Satego P100-10U. But there is a problem using
NVIDIA-Driver. After a few seconds, running Fedora laptop gets very hot.
NVIDIA sensors show me a temperature about 100-112 degrees.
Is there a solution, how can I fix?

Kind regards


As you probably know Toshiba designs and publish own graphics drivers for Toshiba laptops the graphics drivers are not the same thing as the original graphic drivers of manufacturing such as nVidia or ATI graphics card!
Graphics drivers from Toshiba are changed in order to avoid overheating of the graphics cards!

Usually, the books don't provide any special graphics card modules but only the module cooling CPU cooling and so the laptop graphics driver controls the performance of the graphics card.

If the temperature rises to the critical level the driver slows down the map decreases the temperature and heat production.
Drivers Nvidia or ATI of origin don't feature such support!
In my opinion, this is a reason why the card temperature rises to highest level!

Attention, something like that could damage the graphics card!

  • Satego P100-10U - can only use 3 GB instead of 4 GB of RAM


    I have a Toshiba Satego P100 Notebook 10U (Modell Nr.: PSPAME - 004002GR) and now I have done an upgrade of RAM of 2 GB of RAM to 4 GB of RAM. My problem is that my Windows 7 64-bit and my 64 bit Ubuntu, do not use the full 4 GB of RAM. The OSs show me that they are 4 GB inside, but he can already use the 3 GB. BIOS has been updated to v. 4.80 and nothing happened.

    Please help me if it is possible in German. My English is not very good see you ;-).

    Thank you



    How much RAM will be recognized from the BIOS? He sees the full capacity of 4 GB?

    Theoretically, it might be possible that some memory is reserved and used for other hardware components like graphics card or something, but if the BIOS detects the whole capacity everything is ok.

  • Unknown device on Satego P100-10U

    First of all, sorry for my very bad English :-(

    I install XP and now the system to say that I have an unknown device and a PCI device without driver. I think one of them is the sound card, but I can't install the rather. "Device not found" is the message. And I can not find drivers for it. If anyone knows what I can do, please help me... :-)


    For me it s a clear case Oliver. The device could not be found error message appears because you have tired to install a bad driver.

    Satego P100-10F seems to belong to the PSPAME series.

    Therefore, you need to download the drivers for the laptop PSPAME! Be sure that you have chosen the right set to 100%!

    PS; I recommend you download the drivers from Toshiba European page because AFAIK the Satego has been designed for the European market.

  • Satego P100-10U: CPU overheating all playing 3D games


    I often play games like call of Duty4, Counter Stri * ke Source, FEAR Combat etc with my Toshiba laptop...
    After a few minutes, the game, the CPU send a warning: CPU overheating!

    With the right tool brand CPU my CPU temp. is greater than 95Celsius!
    If I am not under my laptop a few CDs or books on the corners to make a place for cooling, the laptop crashed because the CPU is overheating...

    This problem is only if Iplay 3D games.
    If I'm working from write something 'normal' like surfing on Internet, watch pictures or listen to music, the temperature of the CPU. between 60 - 70Celsius...
    What can I do? Service call?



    As you know this laptop was equipped with high-tech parts and devices that are really very powerful. During these games to 100% devices and produce a lot of heat. This is why it is very important to a cooling properly.

    Please check if the cooling modules are free! I mean the dust and debris could prevent fans of good working condition and would have led to overheating.
    In most cases the coolant cleaning module could help to prevent the overheating of laptop computer
    To clean the fans, you might use a jet of compressed air that can be bought in various computer stores

    But I have a question;
    Using the graphics driver from Toshiba?

    Maybe you installed a 3rd party graphics driver which doesn t support protection against overheating! He should know that the original Toshiba graphics drivers are slightly modified. The GPU driver supports thermal protection which prevents the overheating GPU chip is very important and necessary, because portable computers, graphics cards do not have huge cooling modules like graphics cards for desktop PC!

    Therefore, use of the 3rd party graphics driver could lead to overheating.
    Be aware of these facts.

  • Update the BIOS via broken WinPlash SATEGO P100-10U. Now just black screen.


    I did an upgrade of the Bios via WinPlash as I installed the XBox Live. Upgrading the Bios did not work (stupid me) and therefore, I'll have just a black screen after that I have turn on the monitor. The machine emits no beep, nor does it show anything else.
    I have subsequently:
    Downloaded the WinPlash on another PC. As it says in the doc (unziped in a folder), but the file '... ". for bootable CD"is not generated (nothing else that the files have been copied).
    Subsequently I have burned (all files = part of Vista 32 Bit) with NERO on a bootable CD, but it does not start the program (CD starts spinning, LED in CD / DVD flashes yellow then it stops).
    Then, I only copied their executables on a USB key, tired to load it from there - ZERO nothing but the sound of the screens black and fan.

    Tried to access the Bios with combinations of power sur-bouton ' "+ ESC, F1, F2, F10, F12, Del, ALT (as the left of the SPACE key), CTRL.

    Could someone tell me if there is a start-up tool or a BIOS image tha starts, or a special touch?



    so, you have little chance really bad because this issue needs to be repaired by a qualified technician. I had a similar problem and have searched for a few weeks for a resolution quick and good cheap but I couldn t find anywhere these tools mentioned you´ve.

    Your only chance to bring the machine back to life is to contact a [ASP (certified partner) |]
    and allow them to correct this problem. I asked a lot of people here, but no one from toshiba is here to give some nice tools... :(

    Hope that your machine will come back to life.

  • Satego P100-10 heatproblem Debian

    I have a Toshiba Satego P100-10U and installed Debian Linux on it. From the beginning I had a lot of problems, for example my sound worked not etc. I solved most of them, but I still have a big problem that I can't find a solution.

    The laptop heats up! I can't even hear the fan operation. In fact, I think that it doesn't...

    I searched the Internet and found something on a module called "toshiba_acpi.

    "To check if the ACPI and Toshiba ACPI support is activated check the following proc entries are:

    / proc/acpi
    / proc/acpi/Toshiba

    If they do not exist, FnFX will work on this system. If they do not exist, try 'modprobe toshiba_acpi' as root. If it throws errors like ' FATAL: Module not found toshiba_acpi ' probably, the kernel is not compiled with CONFIG_ACPI and CONFIG_ACPI_TOSHIBA. »

    Well, the module is here, but:

    toshiba_acpi modprobe $
    FATAL: Error inserting toshiba_acpi
    (kernel/drivers/acpi/toshiba_acpi.ko /...) : no such device

    This error, I found this on the internet:

    This driver does not work on all laptops Toshiba, particularly those models who seem to have a BIOS or other firmware that was not developed by Toshiba himself. New reverse engineering work needs to be done on these machines, or Toshiba will have to disclose the details. The error that you will see in this case is ^ ^

    Until we do people? I love this phone, but I do not use it with windows, I would be really grateful if someone could help me please...

    Thank you very much!

    Hello Harry

    What to say? If you really think that there is problem with cooling, you must communicate with the service and see if the cooling module is defective. To use Linux or Windows is not relevant. Important is that the laptop should work fine and hardware components must be cooled to avoid overheating and equipment damage.

    I recommend you contact the service. The warranty is applicable and all will be repaired free of charge.

  • SATEGO P100-490 replace DVD player

    The optical drive on my SATEGO P100-490 is becoming worse and worse.
    It started with delay, while that to watch DVD movies, now, sometimes same CD cannot be read.
    So I guess it's a problem with the hardware with the player, a Panasonic UJ-850.

    I was looking for alternative and in general I found a lot of UJ - 850.
    But often the seller indicates that an update of the "master set" firmaware is necessary to operate in systems Tosiba.

    So my questions:

    Can wher I get this firmware update?
    What model of car I can use?
    SATEGO is the same satellite?

    PS: I am running WIN - XP on this machine.
    I'm going to buy a new machine soon, so I spend more than EUR 100 for the repair.

    Thanks much for any help.

    > But often the seller indicates that an update of the firmware "master set" is necessary to function in Toshiba systems.

    It is that not all readers are compatible and so you should contact the ASP in your country before buying a CD/DVD drive guys could provide some info which drives are compatible

    > Wher can I get this firmware update?
    Firmware is installed and you will not get any special firmware of Toshiba.

    > What model of car I can use?
    See above, you can get ASP.

    > Is identical SATEGO satellite?
    I think both sets of laptops are very similar, there is a difference between some parts of hardware such as HARD drive or video card, but available to any computer laptop seems to be the same

  • Satego P100-10F: underside is hot


    I have a laptop Toshiba Satego P100-10F.
    Recently, I noticed that the underside of the laptop is REALLY hot. Especially on the lower left side.
    The function is perfect, but I am worried about the enormous heat to the top of my laptop.

    Can anyone tell me something about this? Is this normal?

    Thanks for your help!


    That s nothing unusual!
    The portable Satego belongs to the series of newer notebook equipped with devices such as the CPU and GPU and high performance parts.
    The powerful processor and graphics card, produce a lot of heat.

    You said that the laptop is hot on the left side? On this side you can find cooling fans and CPU.
    Heat any runs on the left side!

    Believe me. There is nothing wrong with the laptop.
    Why I'm so sure? Well, the phone supports protection against overheating. If the temperature is too high, then the laptop would be down automatically stops to prevent material damage!

    So Don worry ;)

  • Satego P100: rows and removes all the 2-3 sec during the game

    My system is Satego p100 Vista, core 2 duo 1, 66 GHz, 2048 MB RAM, and geforce 7900GS 512 MB
    I tested a large number of games:
    Company of heroes, Tomb raider Legends, supreme commander, trackmania nations, Battlefield 2, Far Cry, Gothic 3, oblivion, wars C & C Triberium

    Every time the same LAGS in 2-3 seconds the pace will for example of 50 fps to 20 fps, even once at 50 fps every 2-3 sec and so on, it is impossible to play well even if I put the game graphically at the lowest end of 20 to 45 minutes the same delay.

    With the cpu - Z tool, I see that the CPU turns on Office on 1000 MHz, and when he needs
    power, he goes to 1666 MHz but if only a second cpu do nothing, he defined to 1000 MHz.

    On the one hand it is overheating protection and saving energy, but on the other hand, it makes no sense to game of doesn t. In the game, I run a little bit, the cpu gives full data speed, slowing down at full speed lag... Slows down the LAG full speed... and so on, he's crazy!

    I can't find any control panel to adjust it. And to set energy vista setting effective performance do nothing. I read that the core 2 duo are normally stay cool extreme, but sometimes there is deep into the CPU before a second witch high heat-maximum rates are caught from the cooling. I put t now if that's the problem but I often recognized that the cpu fan for no reason, just give a second, fullspeed that slow down!

    I can understand that Toshiba engineers are trying to give a freshness and energy efficient long life for the material, but I could by a professional laptop fore 799,-euros and not this. A system with these hardware settings must be able to give full power without overheating any time.

    I hope it's just a driver issue, but I n t think so.

    Check this thread:

    It s on Satego performance.
    The Vista operating system seems to be a reason for the accidentally drop-outs.

    Install XP, if you want to play games!
    Someone has placed the results of 3DMark06:
    Score in 3DMark06 with Vista 3000-3200 with XP on 3800! XP is an key babe ;)

  • Is it possible to install Win7 64 bit on Satego P100-490?

    I wonder if its possible to install this version on my laptop?
    There is no driver to download from the toshiba page, then I would ask if anyone has any suggestions for me.


    Yes, it is possible.
    Satego P100 series is very similar to the Satellite P100 series and if you need Win 7 drivers I recommend that you also check the drivers released for Satellite P100.

    Notes; Satellite P100 is a bit older notebook series and the drivers are located in the archives. As a download-> product type, choose the Archive, then tap the P100 series.
