Satellite A300-1J1 - does not recognize the CD key

Hi all, after 3 days of searching for any type of information I've found this site and I hope that someone can help me.

I have a Satellite A300-1J1, and had to do a complete reinstall of Windows using my recovery disk that was provided with the laptop (Vista Home Premium).
In any case, the installation went well and he had restarted and said I had to activate Windows is not a problem, I thought looked under laptop for key typed in there and it will not recognize the CD as being for Vista Premium key. Now how is that possible that the disc that came with the laptop and the CD key is there?

Any help is greatly appreciated

Hello Shaun

I know it may seem stupid now, but your story is somewhat strange. Why?
To the first Satellite A300 laptop computers are never shipped with recovery DVDs. Recovery DVDs must be created by the owner of the laptop. All A300 laptop come with what is called HARD disk image. AFAIK some A300 laptop computers come with an additional CD/DVD but it is recovery of Windows XP Home or Vista 64-bit edition, but laptop always comes with Vista Home Premium 32 - bit (recovery of HARD drive image).

So the question is what installation media you are using exactly? Is - this support recovery, that you created yourself or a version of Microsoft?
Original Toshiba recovery image is created for each laptop model separately and should not be enabled.

Recovery image can not be downloaded. If you want to have another copy, you must order it under https://backupmedia.toshiba.eu/landing.aspx

    Hello

    the question is:
    Why my Satellite A110-294 does not recognize the wireless card?

    I re - install Xp PRO with all the drivers.

    I have try all the drivers Wireless: Wlan intel + proset intel atheros wlan + wlesscmgr

    I don't understand, can you help me?

    Thank you
    André

    Hello

    To my knowledge, the A110-294 uses the Atheros WLan card and therefore the Atheros Wlan dirver should be the right one.

    You can find the latest driver for Atheros WLan here:
    http://APS2.toshiba-tro.de/WLAN/

    Just a question;
    You see the local network card in Device Manager? I mean, you should see an Ethernet controller or an unknown device in the network adapters
    The driver is missing, then the device must be marked with a yellow exclamation point

  • Satellite 1900 (PS192E) - does not recognize the CD/DVD

    Hey all,.

    I just bought a Toshiba Satellite 1900 (PS192E) and place an old 20 GB HDD from an old laptop.

    When I boot, the screen is in VGA 16 color mode, it recognizes the DVD player, but does not recognize the CD/DVD when inserted. I tried to install and run the utility "driver robot" Toshibas, but the display is such that I see all of the screen to start the search.

    If there is someone out there who could give me some advice, I would be extremely grateful.

    Thank you very much

    Hello

    OK, you have installed the disk HARD of another laptop but too format the HARD drive? I mean if the HARD drive performed from another laptop, you need to reinstall Windows because now you have other hardware installed.
    What version of Windows is it?

    If you want to install a driver for the graphics card go into Device Manager and select Update driver.

    Any ideas?
    Concerning
    Phil

    Hello

    Is your AC adapter malfunctions or there is something wrong with the power supply to electronic s laptop.
    In the first case you could purchase a new compatible AC adapter and could check if the laptop can run successfully.
    The second possibility is a serious hardware problem, but in this case, the laptop must be checked by an authorized technician.

  • Satellite L30-105 does not recognize the 1 GB of additional RAM

    Hi there I hope someone can help me

    I have a Satellite L30-105 PSL33E, which came with 1 GB of ram installed (2 x 512 MB made by TeamViewer)
    and it's terribly slow with vista, not to mention programs.
    The toshiba website says max RAM is 2 GB, so I bought a Kingston 1 GB ram chip to increase the ram to 1.5 GB. I thought should try before moving to 2 GB

    However after installing memory vivid it's show still only 1 GB in windows and in the bios (894 + the rest for video). It has the latest available BIOS on the site 3.10, yet still does not recognize the chip.

    The chip is installed in the lower slot, including the original 512 at the top (closest to the keyboard)

    Are limited to only some of the Satellite of RAM?
    The old subjects indicate if kingston does not work try corsair.
    Other topics suggested to change slots
    Others suggest that it may have only two of the same ram chips in IE 2 x 512 or 2 x 1 GB, you may not have 1 of each

    Can anyone help? everyone knows about similar problems?

    I will not buy any more RAM to try different brands for the same issue to occur

    Hello

    The L30-105 is able to manage the 1024Mo modules in each location it should be able to update the RAM up to 2 GB.

    > Why the RAM 1 GB module cannot be recognized?
    Perhaps the two modules are not compatible with each other
    I would recommend using two identical modules of the same manufacturing
    I use Kingston modules, they are ok for me

  • Satellite A200-1AE does not recognize the USB 2.0 flash drive

    I have a problem because my satellite A200-1AE with Microsoft Vista does not recognize the USB 2.0 flash drive. He asks me a program/software!
    The same USB works without problem on other computers with vista!

    Someone knows what to do?

    Hello

    First of all, you must disconnect all USB devices and must remove the USB ports and controllers in the Device Manager.
    After this procedure, you must restart the laptop. After a new restart the Vista operating system should recognize the USB ports and should reinstall USB drivers again.

    Then you must update the Vista to the State! All fixes and patches must be installed. Please note that you will have to visit the MS Update site for all patches

    Notes; MS has released a beta of Vista SP1. I installed it on my laptop and it has solved several problems.

    Best regards

    Hello everyone.

    Today I turned on my laptop A300 and does not load the operating system. In other words, Toshiba logo appears, the message "Press F2 to enter SETUP", but not in continuity with the boot. Yesterday it worked and did not update the BIOS or something else.

    Thank you very much for your help.

    Start your laptop with F8 and test if you can start the operating system in safe mode.

  • Satellite L30-113 does not recognize the two modules DIMM RAM

    Hello

    I have a Toshiba laptop Satellite L30 113.
    It has 512 MB of RAM and therefore struggled to run Windows Vista, so I bought another 1 GB of RAM.
    It's DDR2 553 MHZ (PC4200.

    The problem I have is that the laptop does not recognize both DIMMs, i.e. the old 512 MB and the new 1 GB when they are in the whole PC. I tried the two DIMM individually in both slots and there is no problem, but when I install both the system sees just 1 GB. I tried the DIMMs around two ways but without success.

    Did I miss something?
    They should be the same size as in the bad old days?
    What is going on?

    Thank you

    Adam

    > I tried the two DIMM individually in both slots and there is no problem, but when I install both the system sees just 1 GB
    Seems that the two RAM modules are not completely compatible...
    I've read several times on these issues and to be honest it s are not uncommon

    I advise you to buy two identical RAM modules ad then to try again

    I'm afraid there is no other solution for your problem of m.

  • Satellite L655 sometimes does not recognize the wireless card

    I have a L655. Most of the time it works perfectly fine. Sometimes when I turn on my computer, it does not recognize my wireless card. He considers that it is not at all.

    The icon in the status bar says that there is no cable ethernet plugged in and nothing on the wireless.
    Usually this icon is not present, and one for the wireless is (whether it is connected or not and if there are connections available or not). In the device manager there is nothing for the wireless card.

    Under network card it has only ethernet. Its as if it does not exist.
    Basically the way to solve this problem is by restarting simply my computer until he figures it.
    Sometimes, it can take 5 or more times.

    Any help please?

    Hello

    What satellite L655-xxx you have exactly?
    As far as I know there are different models with different wireless network cards.

    Your BIOS is up to date? Please check this box.

    So now to a few proposals of solution:
    First of all that I recommend to check if the update of the Wlan driver would improve the Wlan functionality.
    In addition, you must deactivate the energy saving feature for Wlan in Device Manager and Windows 7 power options as well.

  • Satellite A200-1CR does not recognize the module of RAM 2 GB

    Hello

    I have a problem with the extension of the RAM.
    I have the Satellite A200-1CR with 2 x 512 MB of RAM.

    Now, I bought 1 x 2 GB RAM (DDR2 PC2-5300 (667 MHz); PA3513S-1M2G) but the BIOS and Windows recognizes only 1 GB.
    When I add 1x512mo to the second slot, the system recognizes 1.5 GB of RAM.
    Where is the problem?

    What should I do to make it see 2 GB?

    Paula

    Hello

    I think the answer is very simple.
    Satellite A200-1CR can be upgraded up to 2 GB of RAM.
    This means that you can use max 1 GB of RAM in one slot
    You used 2 GB of RAM and this module does not seem to be compatible
    In my opinion if you want to use 2 GB of RAM then you can buy 2 x 1 GB RAM modules

    Satellite A210 does not support port mSATA and therefore the mSATA SSD module cannot be used.
    Probably, you have found a mini-PCI on the motherboard slot. It certainly looks like mSATA but its not the same thing.
