Satellite 1800-400: CD broken
A week ago, my CD-ROM started acting weird. It doesn't read any cd what so ever. I want to replace it, but my question is... I can do it myself, and if not it'll be expensive...?
My Toshiba Satellite is a series of 400-1800
Sorry, but the DVD of the Satellite 1800-400 drive is set up.
If you have no chance to swap it out.
I'm looking for a dvd - rom for a Satellite 1800-400. Where can I get one?
If you check the manuals for Satellite 1800, you will see that this camera comes with different drives. One of them is SD-R2002. Google all over the place. You will find a lot of online shops where you can order one. Another solution is the Toshiba service partner.
By the way: check the ebay also.
All successful one satisfactory to a Satellite 1800 400 upgrade or similar (384 MB of RAM, 20 GB HD, 800 MHz Celeron) of Win ME?
Would prefer to upgrade to XP Pro, but pure install 2nd choice.
If I have the HD format for a clean install, an updated XP version would recognize the recovery CD Toshiba a legitimate copy of the ME - I've heard that there may be problems?
I have the intention to upgrade the BIOS and collect all the drivers available for this model proposed by Toshiba for XP, but will there still be problems with all the material?
Toshiba drivers must be loaded in a special order, and that is during or after installing XP?
XP is likely to be faster or more slow/about the same thing as ME, with above hardware specifications?
All advice welcome, because I have not upgraded the OS on a laptop before, and the potential problems seem more important than with desktop computers.
I put t not see why Windows XP Home edition should not be working on your device correctly. On this forum I have read many topics where users present on Windows XP Home edition on the old models as yours.
Please see the download page for Toshiba under http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com/cgi-bin/ToshibaCSG/download_drivers_bios.jsp and you will find drivers for Windows XP Home edition.
After installing WXP install display and sound driver first. Then install other drivers of material. The next step is installation of Toshiba stuff:
It is important to install common modules like the first.
Someone can help me troubleshoot above?
First of all what does this mean?
I had a very small Satellite 1800-400 with me running. I was convinced that it was full of viruses so wanted to start all over again with the recovery disk. All I got was this error.
In addition, it is said software being installed, please wait and a 0-100% bar. (nothing happens)
Being a novice surf autour, I picked up a new BIOS @ this site. After the install was not successful so I used the command chgbiosa on the a:\, this gave me a command prompt to enter the biosfile in and I have upgraded to version 2.2 (I really thought he could help silly)
Retry the recovery disk didn't give no solution so I'm really looking forward to all the solutions to this disaster.
Sounds strange! Is the recovery CD in good condition? Is this perhaps a scratch?
I want to connect to my Toshiba Satellite 1800/400 on my TV, but I don't know how to install a secondary graphics card. My graficscard is a Trident Cyberblade Ai1 video accelerator.
Please help because I get hopeless and frustrated because I need for school
As far as I know you don t need to install a secondary graphics card. The laptop got the output video output jack to transfer NTSC or PAL data to external devices (TV).
If you want to activate the TV-out function, please go to display properties, and then click Advanced. Now click the device tab to display.
There you can set the parameters on television and in the multi-screen TV/LCD devices section. Don t forget the TV Standard (PAL or NTSC).
However, with the FN + F5 key combination, you can choose between the LCD and TV.
I bought a Satellite 1800-400 for my daughter for her school work, formatted, installed XP pro, and when I tried to install the software for a wireless card (3Com) for internet access, he said only: "the application failed to start because the application configuration is incorrect. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem.
So I tried another card (Belkin) software it says "D:\ is not a valid Win32 application". So I tried to install the printer software and he says: 'the entry point of procedure not found in KERNEL32.dll dynamic link library.
So I thought I'd try XP Home, exactly the same, Win 98 and WinME function without problem.
I have also flashed the Bios, but it made no difference.
Someone at - it ideas
Hmm, it s very strange. For me, it seems that some applications are not compatible with Windows XP. I m not 100% sure why it happens, but I put t think that it s a RAM problem because the other Windows Me and 98 to work properly.
But nothing is impossible
What version of BIOS is installed on your laptop? On the Toshiba page pilot 2.20 BIOS was released.
If your laptop uses an older version, you can try to update.
I have a satellite 1800-400. The cd present in Device Manager, but it does not recognize the cd is in the drive. I need to use the recovery cdsas the system was damaged virus etc. Is there a way I can work around the problem of cd player.
When you try to start the laptop from the CD made in fact tru to access the CD-ROM or it directly boot from HARD drive?
If the notebook is actually an attempt to boot from the CD but do not then it can mean that you CD-ROM is defective or that the recovery disc itself is damaged in some way.
Just got me a second hand 1800-400, but it is a bit slow. I have stopped more RAM (256) to go with the 128 that is already. I hope this will help.
But I was thinking, what other/faster CPU can this small handful of the machine? I can get a P3 1 GHz cpu on ebay cheap but it the system to run it?
See you soon
I looked at some other Satellite 1800 models specifications and discovered that they use different processors. Most of them use Celeron 1.0 GHz and 1.1 GHz, I also found a model with P3 1.0GHz (1800-804). But I think it's using a different chipset, so I don't know if you can use a P3.
Besides I don't think that a little better CPU will increase the performance so much. Upgrading RAM is more effective.
I try to get the internal modem on my departure from 1800-400 of Satellite under Ubuntu Edgy. All other works out of the box except the modem software and I was wondering if one can be able to help with this.
I have been on many Linux forums and followed a number of tutorials, but none have worked for me so far.
Toshiba seems to say it should work, but not enough for me detailed instructions are!
http://newsletter.toshiba-tro.de/main/main/MachineInfoAus.php?OS=1&machine=119&devices=5&d_ty p = 208
The modem manufacturer's site say it should work but still not enough instructions
And found some good info here...
But I'm still stuck not being not very irritable not! Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
See you soon
It seems that this laptop uses a Modem Chip Askey (Lucent)
I see only one way to use this modem in Linux.
You must look for the modem a pilot who takes in charge this chip and is designed for the installation of Linux.
It s very difficult to find the right driver for Linux because there are a lot of different Linux distributions and not all drivers will work.
As I mentioned in the topic I downloaded a graphics card driver
for my Satelitte 1800-400.
The problem is that the Once unzipped downloaded zip file does not contain a Readme with some information or an .exe file to install.
I have no idea what to do with it, but I need the driver car-DVD playback is disappointing.
Thank you in advance.
Well, if the folder doesn't contains all .exe files, then you should try another option.
Go to Device Manager and select the graphics card. Then right click and choose the option install or update driver. Then choose the driver source.
This procedure should work properly.
I have a Toshiba Satalite 1800-400 it is about 4 years old and is under warranty, but I know there's a problem with the motherboard to irreparable. Since I didn't know this problem I tried to source a replacement, does anyone know where I could find one? I looked everywhere.
I also recommend to ask the service partner Toshiba for this motherboard. In this case, you can be 100% sure that this motherboard is supported and compatible with your device.
starting at the... legacy laptops a satellite s1800-400 with 128 MB of ram and 20 GB hard drive. want to upgrade the ram, but what do need me and how do I do it?
You can improve it to max 512 MB and you can use the modules:
PC100 256 MB (PA3069U - 1 M 25)
PC100 128 MB (PA3005U)
PC100 64 MB (PA3004U)
The slot should be placed at the bottom of the unit. Just remove the screws and the cover and you will see the banks
My client has a problem with a 1800-400 that crashes / freezes when it move the computer. I found the same problem here and I just want to know if anyone has found the problem?
The "lit" seeing lights... but the computer start. won´t sometimes it starts... and then suddenly hangs... sometimes, it works... But whenever I try to move the computer, it hangs / freezes...
Please write me if you have a solution to this problem...
I put t know exactly, how to solve this problem, but for the first time, you can try to restore your operating system on Toshiba-CD.
Anyone know where I can get parts for my DVD ROM My boy hit a dvd in the player and broke the capture so that it snaps into place. I don't want to buy a new drive as the drive itself is fine. Please help me!
I think it is unlikely that you will be able to find a replacement for the DVD-ROM is normally sold as a complete unit.
You can, of course, try to get a defective drive to a repairman nearby so that you can delete the items you want and fix them in your player. Try to give your closest authorized Service partner a call and see if they can help.
I have the original configuration of RAM for the S1800-400 with 120 MB. I bought a 256 MB RAM with the following description: EXT256-3069/JR, MEM 256 MB RA Toshiba Satellite PRO 4600 series C650, PIII-7500/750/800 #PA3069U (I think the brand is Transcend).
When I put this slot in the machine, keeping the original and start the computer, it does not start, either on the initial screen of freezing before downloading anything either or that goes to the screen where you can start it in safe mode, but then it does not start.
I removed the new RAM and it works well again.
What can be the problem:
(1) is this new RAM is not compatible with the computer? Based on the selections of the internet service provider, it should be (it's a Portuguese company with their own memory configuration options).
(2) the computer can work with the original 120Mo and the new 256 MB, or should it be both the same size/brand?
(3) is there any other problem that I don't have?
I agree with feliks.
The module is not compatible and not taken in charge can be responsible for your problem.
The best way is to use the Toshiba recommended of the memory modules.
