Satellite 2450 S203: cannot use "easy keys".

There are four buttons in the front part of my laptop for easy to use CD/DVD/MP3 (with the laptop closed), the so-called 'easy touches... "
Anyone know how I can turn them on? I can't use them.

Thank you

Hello Mara,

the easy keys are activated by software that control of Toshiba. You can download from
Go to Support & downloads and then to the support home page. You could choose your laptop and settings. Then you can download Toshiba controls.

If you have it installed, go to the Start Menu and Toshiba Console. In the Console, you have an icon called Toshiba buttons. There you can set the properties of your easy keys.

Tip: You can install all the utilities toshiba, those that make the job easier! ;-)

  • Satellite 2450-201: cannot use TV option after the new installation of the OS


    I have a laptop toshiba satellite 2450-201.
    I've always had the TV OUT works well with my TV, use the right cable SVIDEO.
    I was able to watch divx movies in my TV using my computer.

    I had to format the laptop and installed windows XP again.
    After that, I can't use more TV-OUT option, so that the image of the laptop could be seen on television, I've always had.
    After that I updated display drivers, but the problem remains.

    Can someone help me?
    Thank you


    How do you reinstall the operating system? Have you used the recovery CD?
    Usually after the reinstallation of the operating system from the recovery CD, everything should work properly.
    It is important that you can switch to the TV. In this case, you can use FN + F5.
    If it's not working so I guess that for display devices hotkey utility works or was not installed. Well, the alternative is to pass on the TV via the graphic properties. The TV option, you should find somewhere in the advanced options.

    However, check it and check if you have installed all the drivers.

  • Satellite 2450-S203 - installed XP SP1 of recovery CD - cannot update

    The hard drive on my Satellite 2450 S203 has not then I replaced and installed XP from the recovery CD. Everything's fine. I now have a PC running XP SP1.

    I tried the update of XP start > all progtrams > Windows update but it failed, the updated software I used was not compatible with the update site or something similar.

    I found a site of Microsoft, who said I had to install SP1a and then put to SP1a update to SP3. I downloaded the SP1a installation tool and it seemed to do things, and I'm guessing that SP1a installed OK.

    When I go to start > all programs > Windows update, the update starts OK but after a few moments, I get an error message on the Microsoft Update Server does not.

    * Question 1: *-anyone have any ideas what I should try next?

    * Question 2: * fact Toshiba have nowhere where I can download a more current version of XP - SP2 or SP3 say - so that I can eventuially happen to SP3 without SP1?

    Any thoughts are welcome!

    > Question 1: someone has any good ideas what I should try next?

    Win XP SP1 is part of SP2. So, you can download the SP2 package from Microsoft or any other Windows pages page just google
    So after installing SP2, you can follow with SP3.

    Before you install SP3, you will need to install SP2 first

    > Question 2: Toshiba has nowhere where I can download a more current version of XP - SP2 or SP3 say - so that I can eventuially happen to SP3 without SP1?

    On the pages of Toshiba, you can download only the drivers and Toshiba tools
    Windows Service Packs are Microsoft products, and you should check the Microsoft pages for this.

  • Satellite 2450 s203, "Key Blind" vs Alt right

    I have a problem with my Satellite 2450 s203 keyboard. The sequence of keys on my keyboard is (right): bar space, "blind button", Ins, Del, RightAlt.
    "Blind touch" is the key with any letter/sign on them. When you type, you will get "------" ("' | ' with pressed Shift"). A special touch for "-" ("" | "") exist on the keyboard as well (with the signs- and | clearly marked on it)!

    To get specific special characters for the Polish language I frequently do RightAlt Key, which is too far to the right, to hit him. Usually the faucets of my finger on the delete key instead of Alt right, and the effect of this makes me nervous ;-)

    The question is: is there any software provided for the mapping of this key"blind"? What it is?
    And finally: it is possible to map the Alt key on the right the key "blind"?

    I found a resolution to, but I do not know what scan code generate this key "blind."

    Thank you in advance for your help!

  • Satellite 2450 S203: SMART HDD can fail - HARD drive change?


    My Satellite 2450 S203 seems to run slow extremeley (20 minutes to start windows!). I get a warning in the Manager of Toshiba hard disk may fail soon.

    I guess I should do a new hard drive? Is it possible to fix it? If not, what type of replacement hard drive should get?

    Thank you

    Hello Andreas

    If the HARD drive has a mechanical problem it aren't there has not much to do and you should buy a new HARD drive. But before this I recommend you to do the clean install of OS and see how the laptop runs. After the long period of use and many facilities that the OS will be slower and slower, but 20 minutes is definitely too long for the start-up procedure.

    According to specifications specification must be 40 GB of HARD drive. I'm sure that for the upgrade, you can use 60 GB HARD drive. On this HARD drive replacement is quite simple and you can do it alone. If you n t do this please write again.

  • Upgrading RAM on the Satellite 2450 S203

    Recently upgraded from 2 x 256 to 2 x 512 MB memory RAM. Put new memory in the laptop could not start. Replaced by the original memory still fails to start.

    All solutions?


    Try switching the modules in the memory locations. Sometimes, this might help.
    If possible, try to access the BIOS and to set default settings.

    But if the laptop will not start in the original and compatible memory modules, then you damage something during the memory upgrade procedure.

    Just for info:
    Is that you must use the PC2700 200 pin SODIMM (333 Mhz) DDR modules. These modules are compatible

  • Satellite 2450 S203: registration issue

    I am the owner of a Satellite 2450 S203 and I can't find it on the recording of "my computer"? any idea?


    You can try other toshiba sites around the world. Start with, I don't know where you are, but for example, I am from Turkey and my satellite SA30-303 does not appear in the U.S. site. This can be the same kind of problem. Some models of satellite are not sold in some countries I think.

    In addition, yet once I'm not sure of your model of satellite, but you can see the discontinued models.

  • Toshiba satellite 2450 s203 does not recognize the atheros wireless network adapter


    I have a toshiba satellite 2450 s203 and a network card wireless atheros integrated - somewhere in the laptop - there.

    However, I am running win xp pro and the Device Manager IS NOT to FIND THE MAP!

    He finds the ethernet card and a 1394 network adapter!

    But not the wireless network card!

    Any ideas? I downloaded the drivers from the card wireless site but without success!

    What should I do?

    Thank you!

    The WiFi card is an option for this model for example. It is not included in all machines. You must purchase the correct module for W - lan to work.

    If the card is installed in the machine, you should see a yellow esclamation mark (!) or "unknown device" If you uninstalled hw.


  • Is the western digital 120 GB HDD compatible with Satellite 2450 S203 WD1200VE?

    My hard drive crashed on my laptop and now blue screen whenever I turn it on, when it tries to start. Finally it will start but then I can't turn off again without going through the same process.

    I tried to replace the original 40 GB hard drive model number MK4021GAS with another model of disk toshiba MK4026GAX to see he has an IDE #0 error on startup which I think means that it is not compatible, as it works in a caddy without any problem. So I would check the compatibility of a hard drive, I'm interested.

    I've been watching 120 GB WD1200VE drive and I was wondering if it's compatible? If someone could give me any assistance on this would be welcome!

    Thank you


    The IDE #0 error because the HARD disk has been configured for the wrong master/slave/c-salt settings.
    Please check the position of the rider on your old HDD and set the same on the new one (MK4026GAX)
    Looking for a new 120 GB WD1200VE? Well, the Satellite 2450 S203 is a little bit older and I'm afraid the BIOS will not support this large size of disk HARD m.

    I would recommend so check the MK4026GAX settings before you buy a new HARD drive device.

  • Satellite 2450: Need a new Ctrl Key

    Just a small question, recently the CTRL button broken on my Satellite 2450, anyone know where I'd go for a replacement, because id rather not take it repaired because they charge amounts for her here, even when its still under warranty.


    If only the cap - the CTRL key is broken, so you need to replace only this key, but if there is an additional failure with the keyboard if you need to replace the entire keyboard.

    However, all the parts and devices, you can order from the Toshiba service partner in your country.

  • Satellite 2450 S203 fan noise problems

    Hi guys

    I had a Sat 2450 S203 since October 2003 and have recently noticed that whenever I run memory intensive programs fan noise levels are excessive and constant!

    If someone could Advisor on the replacement of the fan and know if I should do it myself. Please also comment on the impact on costs as well. Are there other ways around to get rid of this problem?


    After this long period, your device must be cleaned properly. I guess that dust inside the unit don't allow adequate cooling and cooling fan must often runs and faster to cool the hardware components. It is not only specific for your device, but for all laptops.

    I'm sure that after cleaning, your device can take a deep breath and will work a lot better and calmer. I noticed the same thing with my Satellite P20. After cleaning the laptop runs very quiet and cooling fan just works sometimes. I'm very happy now.

  • Satellite L500-1GE - cannot use hotkeys

    Hello everyone!
    I'm Tibor of Hungary. I'm not a big forum user, but now I need a little help.

    I have a Satellite L500-1GE and I use Windows 7 ultimate (64 bit). My problem is the following:
    I can't use shortcut keys (FN + F1... 9 buttons) and so I can not turn on/off the wireless. IT always work (still wireless led burn). I downloaded the package value, hotkey, accessibility pilot but useless. In basis without a driver a few work application (ESC, F1, F5, F6, F7) but I set the value package nothing works.

    The most important function for me, it's the wireless switching (FN + F8) because if it works always I can't use my ability to complete accumlator laptop.

    Could you help me on this problem?

    Thank you very much for your help in advance and wish you a Merry Christmas and good luck for the new year!

    Kind regards

    To use the FN keys, you need to install Toshiba Value added Package and maps Flash supports the utility. Make sure that the two versions are released for Windows 7 64 bit already. If you choose a version of Vista it does not work!

    Here you can download the set: > support & downloads > download drivers

    Value added Package must be installed in the first place. ;)

    Any ideas appreciated, wife is an attempt to do for College this week!

    Your ad is quite confusing and I don t understand exactly what is happening. If I understand right, you cannot use Windows, but you have full access in safe mode. Is this correct?

    In any case try to follow: start Windows in safe mode and try to roll back OS to an earlier time using System Restore tool. Do the first step, check what happens and post comments.
