Sat Pro 4300: BSOD on startup, avoided if delay


I have a satellite Pro 4300, running W2K SP4. He had since 2001 with no problems.

Recently I get "unexpected kernel mode trap" and sometimes "ACPI BIOS is not fully ACPI compliant" BSOD at startup (before it comes to any type of graphics). Happens in secure and normal mode.

By experimentation, I found that I get no BSODS and boot normally if I F2 during startup and just hang out for a while (five minutes or more), then start.

If I run a memory test after starting in the Ultimate Boot CD, sometimes I see a lot of bad memory, sometimes not. I think it depends on how long I waited to boot from the CD.

Everyone like to hazard a guess, be it hardware or software? I guess rather than the former. I guess it could be the memory that went wrong, or worse on the motherboard power control began to go.

In both cases probably don't bother to fix, but I have the opinion of anyone.



I don't know with certainty what can be the problem but the spare part for this old good classic are not expensive and you can try to do some experiments. Check eBay. You'll find everything to implement. I imagine that together for this oldie mainboard should not be expensive.

Check the price and decision.

  • Satellite Pro 4300 - keys pressed "automatically".

    I have a problem with a series of Satellite Pro 4300 keys seem to have pressed automatically making me lose control of the computer frequently.
    I thought it might me some virus or spyware, but I formatted and reinstalled the operating system and the problem continues immediately (even before you install any other software!).

    I think it's a hardware problem, because sometimes, even when I turn on the computer, the message asking to press F1 to enter BIOS setup appears, and this message should appear only if the ESC key was pressed; also at this stage of startup no software has yet run.

    Usually, I'm able to connect, use the computer for a while and then it seems to start by pressing the keys of way uncontrolled, causing the pop-up help windows, closing windows, I train, blocking certain keys etc..

    Has anyone else had a problem like this?
    Don't you think it's a hardware problem? Can you think of a solution to this?

    Any help is greatly appreciated!

    Thank you

    HI Gustavo,

    Really, it sounds like a problem with your keyboard. I recommend you only to contact a Service Agent to get the extract.


  • T410 nvlddmkm.sys BSOD on startup

    Hi all

    I had my T410 since the end of last month and had a BSOD on startup several times so far. Whenever I caught, I noticed that the driver nvlddmkm.sys nvidia was the cause. Each time the BSOD, I get the prompt "windows did not start successfully", how by selecting "Start windows normally" translates the fine start System. Since this BSOD is only presented to a cold start, I'm not too hampered by it outside my boot up times by doubling the time it does. I ran the update of the bios/driver Thinkvantage, as well as I'm running with the latest updates for Win7 Pro x 64.

    Everyone knows this? If so, have you found a solution? No matter what Lenovo personal support out there have an entry?

    Thank you


  • Satellite Pro 4300 series installation of Windows 2000 Professional

    Hi guys!

    I was given a 2nd hand Satellite Pro 4300 notebook PC series of my brother. Its shows be quite slugglish (over the start time of 20 minutes). I think I'm a format and a new installation of windows 2000 (windows 98se running sound) may be useful. However, I don't have the original recovery disk, although I own an original copy of Windows 2000 Professional.

    Would it not be possible to do a full format and install windows 2000? Or would I meet problems, for example with driver problems, later? I know computers cell phones can be a bit of a nuisance when it comes to facilities OS!

    Any help and advice would be much appreciated!

    Thank you!



    Your machine should work very well with Win2K - Toshiba have drivers available for download.

  • Black screen on Sat Pro A10


    I have a Sat Pro A10.

    My problem is that my screen is so dark, that I can't see the content (maybe it's the backlight?). However when the computer starts, I can see the login screen of Toshiba fine. I also have the image if normal poster if I close the lid, and then open it. However the screen will stay only normal for a few seconds.

    Anyone have any ideas what is wrong here? Why does the screen work at boot and then deceive you? Is this a hardware or a software problem?

    Any help would be great.

    Hi Alex,

    It sounds like a problem with your inverter FL. You will need to take your laptop to a partner of Service allowed for it to be repaired or replaced.

  • Restore media for a Sat Pro A10

    Hi, I lost my press kit for my Sat Pro but unable to download the drivers from the support site... everytime I try I just get a message saying that the file is not found. Can I download an ISO of the restore media, or someone can look at the download page for this laptop.


    First of all, you can not download an ISO of the Toshiba Recovery CD image file!
    You can buy the CD of restoration but not download.

    If you wish, you can contact the ASP in your country and ask for this CD. It s not expensive.

    Regarding you driver problem;

    Well. I have checked the page of European disc of Toshiba and was able to download drivers for Satellite Pro A10.
    So I know exactly why you can't download the drivers but there is nothing wrong with the page.

  • Satellite Pro 4300 series - is there an available wireless card

    Hi all

    New to this forum I bought an old laptop Toshiba Satellite Pro 4300 series recently as a starter machine for my son. The computer is currently connected to the internet using 3Com Megahertz 10/100 LAN PC Card PCMCIA 3CCFE574BT with dongle connected through hub speedtouch.

    Can someone tell me if there is a PC wireless card that I can use with this machine without having to connect wires in the hub.

    See you soon


    As far as I know, the machine does not support the Wlan and has not been equipped with all Wlan cards.
    If you want to connect the computer to the WLan router then I would recommend using a USB WiFi key that would be the simplest solution.

    There are different sticks USB Wlan that supports different Wlan standards; 802.11 B or G, you must choose one that is compatible with your WLan router.

    See you soon

  • Need driver chart for a Satellite Pro 4300

    Hello together,

    After that 7 years, I had to reinstall my laptop.
    Now, I have no driver for my graphics card. It's a Savage S3. It is all the information I have.
    Maybe someone of you know where I get a driver for it.

    Thank you for the Germany

    Wow this is really an oldie

    I studied a bit and discovered that the Sat Pro 43xx series was equipped with the graphics chip S3 Savage IX.
    This chip uses 8 MB of video RAM.

    Graphics drivers are published on the page of Toshiba Europe. You should check the ARCHIVES area.

    But you will find the only driver for Win95, Win98, Win NT, Win2k GOU
    Driver for XP is not out!

  • Unable to boot CD on a Satellite Pro 4300

    Hello world

    I recently tried to install Ubuntu on a Satellite Pro 4300.
    The problem is that I can't boot any CD, except those made by Toshiba. In the BIOS, I select the option "CD-ROM", but it goes straight to Windows.
    I also updated the BIOS to the latest version, but the problem is still there.
    Then I tried to create a linux floppy with Smart Boot Manager but when I select the "CDROM" line, I always get error 0xAA.

    I don't think it's a hardware problem: when windows was installed, I was able to read any cd.

    Is there something I forgot to do?
    Thanks for the help!... Sorry for my bad English... .and!

    Have you tried to test with some other bootable CD, for example Microsoft WXP CD facilities?

  • Noisy dvd/cdrw drive Sat Pro A100


    Ive just got my new laptop A100 Sat Pro and check that everything works
    I noticed that when accessing a dvd in the dvd/cdrw Mat * one player combo UJDA770
    He is much stronger with pronounced sounds/cries as he accessed but subsequently, he
    can play a movie dvd without much noise. Including these noises ar not when a cd is
    in the drive.

    I am new to laptops, and I don't know if this is normal because the disk is so small?

    You could someon please let me know if this is normal or not?

    Thank you


    Hey Kevin,

    As you can imagine, it's not easy trying to diagnose noises without being able to hear, but there are various noises emanating from the optical drives depending on what they are doing both.

    These sounds are usually a slight noise whirring when the disc actually rotates. applied by a series of light clicks as the lens unit is positioned to read the titles of the index. Once this has been done the unit should return to its noise whirring normal light as the disc is read progressively.

    However, some drives, including the data (games or software) will produce more evidnet clicking and rattling from the unit of the lens are having to constantly reposition themselves in various locations on the drive.

    In addition to the above, some discs are not quite concentric and this can set up a slight oscillation of the disc as it spins. This will be evident by a distinct rumbling noise as the disc rotates.

    If the device emits a loud noise then it will normally indicate a contact between the disc and a part of the possible training of the lens or the drive nut. This is definitely not normal and if this occurs several times and on different disks, then I'd have the optical drive, checked by a Toshiba ASP.

    Kind regards

  • Can I go through Satellite Pro 4300 with disk HARD mk8032GAX?

    Hello and thanks in advance. The question is: can I upgrade the hdd by default in satellite pro 4300 with mk8032GAX model?

    (Sorry for my English)


    The question is whether the laptop and the BIOS is able to manage the size of the HARD drive.
    The mk8032GAX is a 80 GB, 2.5 HARD disk at 5400 RPM and 8 MB cache.

    I discovered that this laptop supports these drives:
    5,59 GB Toshiba MK6414MAP, Toshiba MK6411MAT
    11.2 GB Toshiba MK1214GAP
    16.9 GB Toshiba MK1814GAV

    Perhaps also a 30 GB might be compatible, but to be 100% sure, a test is necessary.

  • Strange problem with the module memory series Satellite Pro 4300

    I have a laptop Toshiba satellite pro 4300 series with 64 MB onboard + 64 MB Module and I want to upgrade my memory to 320 MB. I bought two ram of 128 MB each. I removed the 64 MB module and I put a 128 MB module into the slot (A) one, but I saw that the total memory is 128 MB again.

    I removed the module again and I put the second module in the connector (A), but I saw that the total memory is 128 MB again. After that, I put the two modules in my notebook (Slot A and slot B) but I see that the total memory is 192 MB. This means that it recognizes each module as 64 MB as opposed to 128 MB. Dose anyone know why this happens?
    And what do I do about it?

    Thank you.
    [email protected]


    Well, I put t know why this happens. It seems that the 128 MB modules are 64 MB modules. I know that it of strange but I have only this explanation. You are 100% sure that both modules of memory 128 MB?
    In my opinion, you should check the bars of memory if they have 128 MB.
