Satellite A100: Language for the Vista issue

Hey all,.

I just bought myself a Satellite A100 something something with Vista Home premium.

When I turned on the computer on windows, it has proved to be the French. That in itself is not surprising, as I live in Belgium, where people speak Dutch and French. "Not a problem," I thought: "this manual is in French, Dutch and English, and therefore all the documentation.

I'm sure the restore disc has all three languages out there, and I'll simply choose English. Or even the Dutch one for that matter. Anything other than the French! »

So I start from the restore disc, and, Oh surprise, there are three languages out there: French, Dutch and English. Unfortunately, the computer won't let me choose any language but French because "you have selected French, now, you're stuck with it. (off bugger) ", or something like that.

Unfortunately, I never selected French: the Distributor, or Toshiba himself has made. Is it possible to bypass this protection, or I'll have to return the laptop and make sure that I do not get a French?

Thank you

Hello

One question: has Vista already installed on the laptop when you started the laptop for the first time?
Usually the Vista operating system there are on the HARD drive, but if you turn on the laptop for the first time, you should get the CONFIGURATION window and you should be able to set all the parameters such as language, country and keyboard by yourself.

By the way; This is not a bug in recovery CD! As far as I know, you can only choose one language from the recovery CD that supports 3 languages. I guess that this State is saved in the BIOS or elsewhere and you can select only this language which was chosen at the first time.

In your case I contact the dealer of the new laptop and ask the guy if they or someone else has already installed the OS on this laptop

    Hey,.

    Normally, you need to create this recovery disc yourself using pre-installed recovery disc creator, but I think that now it s too late because Windows doesn't start anymore.

    But you can order the CD here:
    https://backupmedia.Toshiba.EU/landing.aspx

    If you can t order it, ask an authorized service provider. Alternative use a normal disc of Microsoft and the drivers of Toshiba page.

    or some other almost compatible sgftware as a program that I run
    (Act!) requires a default e-mail.

    Thank you for all your help.

    Ah! You should mention the law! in your first post.
    It is possible that Act! requires a fully compatible client MAPI messaging, which is not as far as I KNOW Windows Live Mail.
    Thunderbird is fully compatible MAPI, as I don't know, but you might have problems to access Hotmail in it. There are / were several add-ins which would allow you to do, but they still work after the reconfiguration of September to access Hotmail I can't say.
    The only other option that I know would be Outlook, because I don't know any other free MAPI compliant e-mail clients.

    Thank you

    Hello!

    Normally you get all the drivers on the Toshiba site, but Toshiba does not have a 64-bit drivers for all mobile phones.
    In most cases only for the new laptops, which came with 4 GB of RAM.

    That can make is to search on external Web sites for 64-bit drivers.
    Here are some examples where you can search:

    [www.intel.com]
    [www.realtek.com]

    If you do not have a Microsoft Vista DVD, make a repair disc to do a Startup Repair:

    Download the ISO on the link provided and make a record of repair time it starts.

    Go to your Bios/Setup, or the Boot Menu at startup and change the Boot order to make the DVD/CD drive 1st in the boot order, then reboot with the disk in the drive.

    At the startup/power on you should see at the bottom of the screen either F2 or DELETE, go to Setup/Bios or F12 for the Boot Menu.

    When you have changed that, insert the Bootable disk you did in the drive and reboot.

    Hi brets49833316,

    If you have purchased Adobe Acrobat Pro DC as an upgrade, then a serial number of the previous version which you have like Acrobat X or XI. If in the case where you have not bought one of these in the past, then you must buy Acrobat Pro DC as full version (US $449.00).

    In this scenario, you can return the version upgrade and purchase the full version. To return the Contact Customer Service

    Hi bobj39626549,

    We could certainly help you.

    If she asks for the previous version number, then you could acquire a version upgrade.

    You must purchase the full Acrobat version so that it can be installed and activated with the serial key.

    Hope that helps.

  • I do a layout of paper every two weeks; This time, when I opened my model, set up for the next issue when I typed 'W' to display the grid I have something totally different than previously, a background grid which is more annoying.  Why in the world

    new to InDesign 6 months I do a newspaper page layout every two weeks.  This time, when I opened my model, set up for the next issue, when I typed "W" to display the grid, I have something I never saw elsewhere. ".  The background was filled with a new grid of tiles rather than the void behind the newspaper that I'm used to seeing.  I don't know what happened, but it seems that Adobe has tinkered once more with the program.  The last time this happened, I lost the icon "cover the columns" at the top; now, it's a case of two steps to put the head-lines across more than one column.  NOT useful.

    There is probably a command or a term, I don't know that this right but my main question is why, when I did this dozens of times before, doing something different will come this time.  (I know, without replica.)

    I'd also appreciate comments that someone out there could offer re why now when I tap on InDesign, is there a slight pause before that something happens to the screen.  What is my new Mac, or something to do with the program that I can fix it?

    Thanks, Sacie

    It looks like the grid of the document, which can be disabled in the view menu.

  • Satellite A100-979: cannot find Vista 64 bit driver for Toshiba buttons

    Hello!

    I have a problem to find a driver for the multimedia keys on my Satellite A100-979(6 easy keys). I have Windows Vista 64-bit and this computer laptop should be vista capable. Can someone help me? Maybe you have an idea to solve this problem.

    > this laptop should be able to vista

    Of course, it s Vista capable. You installed Vista on the Satellite A100-979 and it works.

    You ask drivers for the 64 bit version of Vista? Well, unfortunately, but there is nothing to see!
    It should be common that Toshiba does not all 64-bit drivers. or for XP for Vista. :(
