Satellite A200-1AX: many applications does not work under Vista


I bought A200 1AX a few days ago and I'm not having a good experience with regard to the installation of applications on this Vista box. Even install yahoo messenger did not work and produces the NSIS error. 3D max 9 installation does not work (even though some have managed to operate); Install Adobe CS3 (supposed to be for Vista) did not entirely - the photopshop component have not installed, etc.

The bottom line, I plan to move to XP OS. Means the required BIOS update I have my Vista recovery CD will NOT work after the switch to XP?

Thank you for your feedback.

Best regards, Ashraf.


Unfortunately I put t know how to help you.
Usually, if the 3rd party applications are designed and support the Vista while there should be no problem with unique program facilities.

Check if all software packages are completely cared for and compatible with Vista.

> The necessary BIOS update means that I have my Vista recovery CD will NOT work after the switch to XP?

No, after the update the BIOS of XP, you will still be able to use the Vista CD from recovery, but perhaps some functions such as the FN keys will not work.

  • Satellite A200-1AX function key does not work do not

    Hey all

    I have installed XP a few weeks back and updated the bios to the xp version
    I didn't like it and I went back to vista but now my function does not work.

    I press and press the screen brightness but controls no longer appear and I have to use manually with my mouse or via the mobility Center
    is it because of the bios? I downloaded the new bios for vista and now it says that the rom space is full and closed unexpectedly

    What should I do? Help much appreciated


    The problem is that you must update the BIOS to the XP version if you want to use all the features of the laptop on this laptop.
    After installing XP, you must update the BISO XP, and then you install all the drivers Toshiba XP available and public services.

    This should help.

  • Re: Satellite P100-194 PSP6AE sound does not work under Vista 32 bit

    Hello world

    I got a nice Satellite P100 and configure Vista for a friend. I don't have the CD that came with the computer, so I installed those on the Toshiba site. I found out later that there is a proposed order of installations, and there is no chipset driver for Vista, so I used the XP one.
    As far as I got, everything works fine but the laptop remains silent. There is no sound from the speakers at all. Windows says it all was going well and there is a level moving in the sound mixer, but he remains silent.

    Does anyone have an idea what I could check or change? I would be very happy!

    Thanks in advance,

    From my point of view, there is a hardware malfunction.
    Why? Because the sound through headphones. Therefore, it is not a software/driver problem.

    But what you could do is to check the audio playback device by default:
    Go to control panel of-> sound-> the Read tab
    Here the speakers should be peripheral activated and chosen as a default value.

  • Satellite A300D-158 illumination button does not work on Vista

    Buttons light Toshiba does not work under Vista.

    I installed added package versions available in Toshiba support page, but Toshiba Assist do not see the list of function buttons where I can change the feature keys.

    When this value added package is uninstalled all buttons works with WMP, but during the installation - do not.
    Illumination power button is not working do not by the press.

    This means support to toshiba button does not work properly with vista.

    I don't have these problems with XP


    As far as I know, you can enable and disable the lighting in the BIOS.
    Go to BIOS and check if you can activate it.

    By the way; you said that buttons don t work with Vista.
    Have you tested this with Vista OS preinstalled Toshiba?

    You should do this!

  • Satellite A200 - 1 MB microphone does not work on Windows XP

    Hi all.

    I buy a Satellite A200 - 1 MB and when I install Windows XP everything was ok except a little problem:
    The microphone does not work.

    I installed all the drivers correctly, but the problem is the same.
    I read on the internet that many owners A200 - 1 MB have the same problem.

    Is one know how I can fix the problem?
    Thank you

    It's very strange. I installed Windows XP Home SP2 on Satellite U300 edition. It's the same laptop fine but a bit smaller and in my case works cam and microphone. I tested it with Skype. The sound quality is not very good, but it works.

    Are you trying to test also with Skype? Did you check the sound options?

    Can you help me? I have a new Satellite A200-13O, USB does not work.

    Hi Gilbert

    What do you mean exactly with the USB does not work?
    You plug the 3rd USB external devices advantage, which cannot be recognized?

    Have you installed all necessary drivers for these devices?

    What operating system do you use? If you are using Vista are you sure that the external USB device is compatible and supports the Vista operating system?

    After two weeks my DVD/CD drive does not work.
    So I deleted the a±ts driver and then I do not want to install the driver.
    Please help about this.


    Don't be angry with me, but your ad is not a little clearer!

    However, the CD/DVD drive uses and supports the common drivers Windows Vista (or XP)!
    You n t need any special drivers to recognize the STRANGE

    In your case I would recommend going to the Device Manager and remove (uninstall) the CD/DVD drive.
    After this procedure, restart the laptop.
    The Vista operating system should recognize the new device and must be reinstalled the drivers automatically

  • Keyboard does not work under Vista on Satellite L300D

    Dear readers,

    I have a Satelite L300D with Windows Vista 32 bit Home Premium. It is about 5 months and so far I have not had problems.

    Today, I started the book and noticed that I was not able to type my password for Windows.
    I thought, there must be a problem with the keyboard and restarted the laptop.
    I tried to enter the Bios and I wonderd, keyboard worked as expected it. Back to Vista, the keyboard does not work yet.

    I rebooted again and activated Capslock befor the Windowsstartup and looked at the LED.
    Just after the appearance of the Windowslogo, Capslock off a keyboard was dead.
    So I thougt it must be a driver error. I deleted the two driver files Hardware-Director told me where the drivers keyboard, rebooted twice a keyboard had returned to work, but only until the next reboot.

    So I decided to make the recovery of HARD drive and reinstall Windows, thinking, this should fix the problem.

    But it's still there.

    Is there someone who could help me? If this is an error of the driver, is should have disappeared when the laptop is in a State of delivery, right?

    I would be very happy for any advice or help

    Greetings from Berlin


    PS: I want to say sorry for my bad English... :-)

    Hey mate

    > It's about 5 months and until now I didn't have problems.

    I wonder why this keyboard problem happened after 5 months of use?  :|
    This means that this keyboard worked fine using the Vista and the Toshiba Recovery disk operating system but recently stopped working if the Microsoft OS is running.

    In my eyes it s a hardware issue ok, it s really strange that you can use it in the BIOS and the Linux system. But I recommend to contact the ASP (certified partner) in your country and ask if the technician could test with the new keyboard.

    I think that your warranty is valid and therefore everything must be covered by the warranty!

    Good luck

  • Windows Update does not work under Vista

    Hello! I have Vista Ultimate 64 bit and a few weeks ago, I noticed that my windows updates had stopped working. I followed the instructions to do a repair of my drive, but got "the upgrade is not available. Press Cancel and then select upgrade to a newer version than what you have "." However, there is nothing that gives me this opportunity. How am I supposed to fix it then?

    I have a feeling that this happened after a service pack has been installed (3?), but as I put it to the automatic updates I have not noticed exactly when he had ceased. I'm frustrated and very frankly also irritated. I paid a fair bit for Vista Ultimate and I'm basically says my drive is useless. I ran the Microsoft Fix It, and he said he solved the problem, but it didn't. I also did a system restore and that do not also not fixed the problem. The error code I get whenever I have try to do an update is 80070490. I saw a lot of messages from people having this same problem, while searching for a solution, so there's obviously a problem somewhere I would appreciate to help get it sorted please.

  • CD/DVD does not work under Vista

    I have a laptop Compaq Presario F700 under Windows Vista Home Premium.  For the first year and a half i have owned my laptop, my CD/DVD drive worked perfectly.  A month ago it has stopped working completely.  It does not appear in my computer or Device Manager and it does not open.  I don't think that the drive is defective because it will open when the first Compaq screen shows up, but when the Microsoft Corporation loading screen is up, it stops working.  I used Google to good use, but none of the solutions I found worked.  I tried to delete upper and lower filters but they aren't there, and I tried all the solutions Microsoft Fix - It nothing works.

    Any help is greatly appreciated


    Reader might indeed have gone wrong.

    Check with support from Compaq and their forums for known problems.

    Compaq - Support

    Compaq (HP) - Fourms

    Step 1: Please do all the same underneath if you did some before as is often total
    a process that solves the problem.

    Try this - Panel - Device Manager - CD/DVD - double click on the device - driver tab.
    Click on update drivers (this will probably do nothing) - RIGHT click ON the drive - uninstall.
    RESTART this will refresh the default driver stack. Even if the reader does not appear to continue

    Then, work your way through these - don't forget the drive might be bad, could be a coward
    cable or slight corrosion on the contacts (usually for a laptop) and other issues.

    Another possibility is that the cables are loose. Remove ALL power, then make sure that the cables in both
    ends. Remove and replace, do not just tight. For laptops, you can often clean power and
    contacts data with a pencil eraser.

    Some DVD players do not use the Windows default drivers so check with the manufacturer of system and
    manufacturer of device to see if there is a firmware or drivers for your drive if necessary.


    Step 2: You have disc problems as the CD/DVD is actually 4 discs in 1 case (CD & DVD
    Burn and CD and DVD read). So it is not unusual for 1 or 2 operational so that other parts
    do it right.

    Did you follow the Troubleshooting Guide for the reader who still does not work? There are
    the entries in registry that the troubleshooter does not solve and those who "might" be the cause.

    Check with your Maker system and a device for the two possible firmware updates and
    the correct registry entries for your car.

    Here are the keys that I of course are those in question - for the subkeys of the CD/DVD drive

    the parameters.

    Use DevManView to locate the CD/DVD in the registry (be careful and do a prior Restore Point)

    DevManView - free - an alternative to the standard Windows Device Manager, which displays all the
    devices and their properties in flat table, instead of the tree viewer
