Satellite A300-1IK - impossible to update Vista


I recently reset my Satellite A300 to its default values by using the utility HDDRecovery. Now, the OS is Vista Home Premium SP1, but I'm not able to update vista drivers or get the upgrade to SP2, so I was struck with my SP1 default.

I tried installing updates with automatic update, or manually checking the updates under "Windows Update" options. I have achieved anything with the first method (planned updates begin at all), while with the second method when I click on the button "Search for updates", it tells me "impossible to verify new updates; CODE ERROR 80072EFE»
So I tried to download the executable update packages microsoft official to their download area, but all fail to install.
What am I supposed to do?

Thanks in advance, Alessandro


Hi caiusteblack,

> So I tried to download the executable update packages microsoft official to their download area, but all fail to install.
Pack update that you downloaded?

Of way General if SP1 is already installed you can begin with the installation of SP2 for Vista but SP1 must be installed in the first place. SP2 is available for download on the official site of Microsoft (no Windows Update). Download SP2 and run the install and check what is happening.

    Hi all
    I only got a Toshiba Satellite A300-15 b for two months, I've had no problems until yesterday, when occurred the following and I don, t seem to be able to remedy.

    I have re-installed windows Vista that seemed to solve the problem last night, but when you use this morning same sequence happened.

    I ran the check disk of F8 and a restoration of systems

    Any ideas?

    If you have reinstalled Windows Vista with the Toshiba recovery image and then you have the same problems, you should check your Satellite to an ASP (authorized service provider).
    I think that it s a hardware problem. decision-making supported downloads & => find an ASP.

    I'm sure they will help you.

  • Satellite A300-1EG - after upgrade to Vista Premium lacks some options

    Floor of the year of return, that I bought the computer laptop Toshiba SATELLITE A300-1EG (short model No. PSAG4E). Due to some problems, it was necessary to reinstall Windows.

    Bought the laptop introduced Windows Vista Home. Now I have created Windows Vista Ultimate Edition. A problem with some drivers, I can't adjust brightness and sharpness of the screen, and the screen guests do not work. Writing "or screen prompt updated video card is required, or the video card compatible with Direct3D" is necessary.

    Help please!


    I think that you didn t install the driver on the right graphics card
    It seems that your laptop supports the ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3470 graphics chip and I think that you should simply reinstall the graphics driver on the European driver Toshiba page

  • Satellite A300 - after the BIOS update I can not install two OS

    Hello everyone:

    I bought a laptop Toshiba Satellite A300-247 with Windows Vista Home Premium.

    Then I formatted it and divided the hard (320 GB) into 6 partitions and installed Windows Vista and Windows XP on drive C to drive D after having changed the SATA controller mode in the BIOS for compatibility. The computer worked well with 2 operating systems. However, when I updated the BIOS to version 1.9, two operating systems stop working and one of them can be installed: XP can be installed when SATA controller mode is placed on compatibility and Vista can be installed only when the SATA is changed to AHCI.

    Is there is no explanation of what past? And can I install operating systems 2 together again?

    Thank you


    First of all, I doubt that this has something to do with the BIOS update. I think that after the BIOS update HARD drive mode has been changed from AHCI to compatibility and therefore the OS didn't start.

    Anyway, in compatibility mode you can install Vista and XP without the SATA drivers. This should t be a problem.

    But do you know the difference between compatibility and AHCI? AHCI mode is faster and therefore I would recommend this mode.
    Like you said Vista you can already install in AHCI mode and for XP, you need Intel Storage Manager. This package includes the SATA drivers you need and here is a step by step guide to use these drivers:

    Last but not least, you can install 2 OS. You can do what you want! ;)

  • Satellite A300-1QD - how to restore Vista preinstalled?


    I made a big mistake, two years ago. I installed windows 7 on my Satellite A300-1QD but on the laptop Windows Vista was installed and I have no recovery disk, but I have the original serialnumber of it.

    Are there opportunities to put Windows Vista on the laptop without buying a new version of Windows Vista?

    welcome them



    If you don t have a recovery disk, you must order such a Toshiba drive directly to restore preinstalled Windows Vista with all the drivers and tools (factory settings):

    But it s not free as far as I know it costs about 30 Euros.

    So I t understand why you didn't create the recovery disc yourself. Everything is mentioned in the user manual

  • Re: Satellite A300-1EI PSAGCE - need to Vista 64-bit drivers


    I recently bought a Satellite A300 - 1EI PSAGCE, which by default comes with Windows Vista Home Premium.

    I intend to upgrade the operating system to Windows Vista Ultimate Edition, but I am not able to find the drivers for vista 64 bit from Toshiba Web sites. When buying the laptop, I had asked expressly the Toshiba seller if I can move on to the final and he convinced me that I can.

    _Kindly provide a link to download the drivers for 64 bit for A300-1EI_.

    Please notify.

    Kind regards

    You asked to you can upgrade Vista 64-bit operating system and sellers said yes.
    Well, of course, you can install the 64-bit Vista. You can also install W2k or WinME you can install everything but the question is whether you will be able to find the drivers.

    The point is that this is a new series of mobile at the moment and I think that the derivers 64 bit of Vista will be released in next time
    So, either you will wait until these drivers will be available on the Toshiba site or you try to collect the drivers and own hand.

  • By Satellite A300 - 15 c comes with Vista DVD


    I have a Toshiba Satellite A300 - 15 c to some queries:

    Is - this type is delivered with Windows Vista DVD?


    The new Toshiba notebooks seem to be delivered with the image of Toshiba HDD.
    This means that Vista and all the other drivers, tools and utilities are already preinstalled on the HARD drive and the image is placed on another partition.

    You can burn this image on DVD to get a recovery DVD.
    As I m not wrong not it must be preinstalled software Toshiba called recovery disk creator. This tool can be used to create a recovery DVD.

    Once again; the books are not delivered with the Vista DVD.

  • Re: Satellite A300 PSAGCA-03C010 - downgrade from Vista to XP


    I'm really new to all this, so I hope that will not ask a question that has already been answered :)

    I bought a laptop Toshiba Satellite A300 (model PSAGCA-03C010) in October 08. It came with a preinstalled version of Windows Vista Home Premium.

    Initially, using Vista was not too bad, but it happened at a point now where his things slows down and is really frustrating. Want to downgrade (/ upgrade) go back to Windows XP and I want to know the "implications" of this and if the Toshiba Utilities are consistent and will work with XP.

    First of all, can I use my ID current product that came with Vista and it enter the product ID when I install XP?

    Also, I am concerned about the Wi - fi, bluetooth, finger scan and HDMI applications - will this work with XP?

    Finally, when I created the "recovery disk", should everything go 'bad' when installing XP or if something does not work, can I use this recovery disc to return to the original "out of the box" installation?

    Thanks in advance and again once, apologies if these qns have already answered in other posts (im not too technical).


    > I'm really new to all this, so I hope that will not ask a question that has already been answered
    In many cases, these questions have been answered already and you might find useful views by using the Advanced ;) search option

    > Want to downgrade (/ upgrade) go back to Windows XP and I want to know the "implications" of this and if the Toshiba Utilities are consistent and will work with XP.
    Tools and Vista drivers are not compatible with Win XP. If you want to install Win XP and want to use all the features of the laptop you must make sure that the Win XP drivers are available for this model of laptop.

    Satellite A300 PSAGCA seems to be an Australian model. The drivers are placed here:

    I checked this and found a few tools and drivers for this device.

    > First of all, can I use my ID current product that came with Vista and it enter the product ID when I install XP?
    No, you can not use it because it belongs to the Vista operating system preinstalled on your laptop.

    > Finally, when I created the "recovery disk", should everything go 'bad' when installing XP or if something does not work, can I use this recovery disc to return to the original "out of the box" installation?
    Yes, the recovery disk allows to reverse the laptop back to factory settings.
    You will get the same as on the first day of purchase

  • Satellite A300-1IK - installation after Windows I can't use the multimedia keys

    I tried to clean my laptop, so I installed Windows7 64-bit using my code, but now that I also donwloaded all drivers, I still can't use easy media keys (as for Windows Media Player, or those who must play/stop music, ect..)

    No one knows how to fix this?

    Hi dilettafornasiero,

    I think you forgot to install Toshiba value added Package this package contains the driver for these buttons (lighted) media where you can start Windows media player, for example.

    You should check the Web from Toshiba site again and search for VAP also indicated for Satellite A300. Download and install the package and after I restarted the lighted buttons should start working.

    Check this box!

    Whenever I try to install the Driver Realtek Wireless LAN 2023.17.731.2015 using Toshiba Service Station, the program starts and the permissions window arrives, I click Yes but nothing happens. No other window does not appear, and the update is still in service station as if nothing happened.
    Is there any fixes for this?

    I am using a Satellite L50 - C

    Thanks for any info

    It could be interference from program, first go into your software settings in your BIOS, go to security and disable secure boot. This can sometimes prevent update programs. And then perform a clean boot, follow these instructions to make a boot minimum
    Then, disable your antivirus and firewall completely and run the update again.

  • Impossible to update Vista - cannot install SP1 or other updates

    After trying to download, I get this:

    Some updates were not installed:

    Code 64 c

    4 results for "WindowsUpdate_0000064C" "WindowsUpdate_dt000"
      1 problems with installing updates
      2 Windows Update, error 8024402C
      3 error code Windows Update 80070422, 80244019, or 8DDD0018

    4 Windows Update error 80070643

    I am running Vista Home Premium and it used to install SP 1 not to mention all the others.  The short time the system even gave me a notice a few times that I was not running genuine Windows software even if it is enabled and varified authentic by Microsoft support. I had to install today and it restarts after installing 3 3 parts of the CIP of service. After the restart, he says that the update was not installed and there we reversed to where we started. Ouch, I'm a damsel in distress here!
    Thanks in advance for your help.

    I suggest that you run the following tools and then try to install SP1.

    First to perform a clean boot on your PC.
    Run the disk error checking.
    Run System File Checker.
    Run the System Update tool.
    So if these tools did not report any errors, then install the SP1.

    Post back with the results.
