Satellite A300-1MC, does not need the recovery cd

Hi all.

My friend has a laptop Satellite A300-1MC that no longer works. When the laptop is on, it indicates that the hal file is missing. I know that we need to buy the recovery cd, since she did not have one when she bought the laptop.

Can someone direct me to the Toshiba site, where you can buy these recovery CD since then?

If not, can someone give me the phone number of support Toshiba UK.

Thanks in advance.



Recovery media can be ordered under
Toshiba UK support phone number is unknown to me, but maybe you can find it under

  • Satellite A300-288 does not load the operating system

    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.

    Someone has an idea? I deleted a both SDRAM and vice versa, to check that the problem wasn't RAM, but no. There is no beep. LED touch 'NumLock' and other, power on and off when I have impulses, so the keyboard responding but by pressing F2 or F12 does nothing.

    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 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

  • Satellite A300 - Vista does not load, the computer does not start

    Satellite A300
    Model number: PSAGCA-02W010

    Vista won't load; have you tried to start repair; System Restore and boot in safe mode, none of them work. I get the error "error 0 x 80070570: the file or directory is corrupted and unreadable."

    I don't know what I did with my recovery CD; or if I even got one with my purchase (from Harvey Norman).

    Please tell us what can be done.


    What you can try is to install Vista using disk HARD recovery option.
    How it works, you can read on

    If it works all the data saved on the C partition will be deleted but the data saved on the D partition will always be there.

  • Satellite A60: keyboard does not work, the recovery DVDs cannot run


    I have a serious problem with my A60: the keyboard no longer works. I tried many solutions and the last of them, recovery with the Recovery DVD - ROM product does not work, because I can't use the keyboard!

    When the screen with the 3 choices, I have no opportunity to respond.
    Someone has an idea?

    Thanks a lot for your answer.

    They keyboard might not be the problem, or it may not be connected properly to the motherboard the best thing to do is to take it to a service center, it should not cost you anything, if it is still under warranty... but if it's just the keyboard and your laptop is out of warranty then it should cost more than 100-200... can't say how much exactly, because I have no idea.

  • Satellite A110-294 does not recognize the wireless card


    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


    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:

    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

    Hi maestro2118,

    Since when did you notice this behavior and what operating system is installed?

    Before install or reinstall a driver, I recommend you to remove the old driver first. Then, restart your computer and run CCleaner to remove old registry keys. A reboot, and you can install latest driver of the webcam of Toshiba page.

  • 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



    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.

  • Satellite Pro 6100 does not recognize the single battery external power

    Whenever I have start Satellite Pro 6100 Win XP Pro with standard battery mounted and connected to the power supply computer laptop does not recognize the ext battery supply single supply and during 'start-up' goes into hibernation.

    By pressing the power on button laptops "wake up" and indicate that the battery is empty or may not even decide when completely loaded, then says connect the station even if still connected, looking under Toshiba console when it runs shows running on battery when still in the power of the ext?

    I have two batteries and both give the above symptoms even when I remove ext of laptop power always runs with power supply by battery but no light orange or green for battery.
    Any ideas?


    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


    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?


    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

  • Satellite A300 PSAG8E does not load

    I have a Toshiba Satalite A300 PSAG8E, which does not load.
    I was given a few days ago by a person stating that he is not working or light - vague details.

    At the reception that he turned on, asked to start windows normally or not, then started absolutely perfect, it powered by the charger, no problem.

    I let him on during some time different tasks.
    I came to him a few days later to find that he had himself set to off.

    I enabled again, how he asked to start windows normally or not. I started normally, and it came on the property.
    Since then I could not to power it on the sector.

    Why not load it now?

    Hi mate

    > Since I could not to power it on the sector.
    > Why didn't he care now?

    I m a bit but confused. What's wrong now? You are not able to feed the device or battery is not charging?

    If you are not able to turn on the unit, then you should try this:
    -Disconnect the battery and AC adapter
    -wait a while (2-3 hours)
    -connect the two parties to laptop and check again

    If your battery does not load:
    Try to update the BIOS and set its default value
    If that does not help, then the battery should be checked
    If the new battery does not solve the problem, then the motherboard must be checked and replaced if necessary.

  • Satellite A300 - 1 FG psag4e does not read the recovery DVDs


    Sorry for my English, I m French.

    I bought a Toshiba Satellite A300 - 1 fg and I burn the dvd of recovery before you installed XP.

    And now the first DVD cannot be read correctly and I can't restore my laptop for sale
    (the fan is too loud, media keys do not work with another player WMP... I am not satisfied with this laptop)

    I am looking for the most possible to send me a copy of the DVD please.


    Best regards


    Try copying this DVD of recovery on the other computer, and then try to boot from the burned DVD.

    By the way; Media buttons can be use din WinAmp. You should enable the option in the settings of WinAmp. The fan is not strong and cooling parameters can be changed in the settings to save energy.
    Here are some small tips ;)

  • Satellite x 200-25 h does not read the recovery disk


    I bought my laptop less than a year ago and I wanted to format.
    I tried to use the product recovery disc, but it seems that it will not read.
    My laptop reads all CDs, but the recovery one.

    I put the cd in the machine, stop, turn and press F12. It shows me 2 hard drives and cd/dvd option and one I don't remember, I think it's LAN. I choose the CD/DVD option and taking me in a black screen and after 1 minute, Windows load...

    I already tried the other options, but nothing happened, the first option (1 hard drives) takes me to windows. The other takes me to a black screen, then windows.

    When I use the cd of the laptop makes a horrible noise...

    ANOTHER problem I have is that I have just 1 CD, I've never had a recovery CD 2 or more... I don't know that I have not lost given them that I never touched this thing...

    Please HELPPPP


    Maybe the drive is not able to manage the recovery due some scratches or something like that disc
    Who knows why the CD/DVD drive cannot read, it seems to be the problem with the drive

    You could try to copy (burn) this DVD using another computer and then could attempt to use the recovery disc copied in order to verify if the drive would deal with the new drive
