Satellite A300 PSAG0A - games does not show full screen

I have a large number of games installed on my computer. At least 90% of them appear not in the size of the full screen, but they are displayed in a small window with a large amount of black screen that surrounds the window. I am running Windows Vista Home Premium 32 bit. However, I don't think that it has nothing to do with Windows as my husband is running the same games on his Toshiba Satellite L300, exactly the same version of windows running, and they are all displayed in full screen.

Change the screen resolution makes no difference. And, of course, I select the option full screen in games.

Also, sometimes when I play a game and then closed it I think my desktop image shrank to small size - the same size the window in which the game was displayed when I played it.

Games work fine in every other sense, isn't this small screen size that is driving me crazy.

I hope someone can help me with this!


I think I know what's wrong.
You should go to the control panel and you must choose the Intel graphics Media Accelerator for Mobile.
Here, you should go to display settings-> image format Options, and there you have set the image in full screen format.

Check it!

    Satellite A300 easy (key) does not...
    I have recently upgraded my Vista SP1 to SP2 (do not know if this is the problem, but I'm pretty sure that's not)

    Yesterday, I discovered that my easy keys no longer work. Lights are out, when I press the keys, the light comes on and goes off again as they do normally, but no reaction on my screen (can not turn on any light without restarting my computer and select turned ON manually cannot transform media of windows opened by the touch and play the key do not work).

    Is it supposed to be a driver or something for this?

    Sorry for the bad English...


    A few days ago, I had the same problem on my laptop Qosmio. Lighting keys stopped working after installing some updates and the 3rd application programs the keys no longer works and also the lighting.
    At the end of the story, I had to reinstall Windows :(

    In any case, now, you should try to reinstall the Toshiba value added Package. He controls these buttons that you want to say and you can find it on the Toshiba site: decision-making supported Downloads & => Download drivers

    Before installing you need to remove the old version first, restart the computer, clean up your Windows with CCleaner for example, restart again and then install the new VAP.

  • Satellite A300 - rotates but does not start


    I have a Satellite A300. I had several probems for the boot since 2 months ago: when I want to turn on my laptop, it turns on but the screen keeps black and it does not load the screen "Toshiba Leading Innovation". 'Satellite' (to the left of the mouse) light is on (it would go only about a second then to start and then turn off) and it will turn off.

    Thank you very much and sorry for my English written: S


    Hey Buddy,

    > I had to buy a new battery (not original from Toshiba) because I had to change the original. No more changes to my laptop.
    Of course, it s always advisable using Toshiba original spare parts only, but if you notice the same problem with AC adapter only it s not related to the new battery.

    Just to make a better diagnosis: If you have connected an external monitor? The internal display is perhaps the problem and doesn't turn on and it would be useful if you are testing the situation and an external monitor.

    But this noise as a hardware problem serious and in this case, you can wait to contact an authorized service provider. Technicians professional diagnostic tools to make an accurate diagnosis and to Exchange defective equipment parts.

  • Satellite A300-1NO - webcam does not work, but the LED lights


    I have a laptop Satellite A300-1NO, with Win 7 installed. My problem is that my webcam does not work always, when I want to use it. Sometimes, it works perfectly in Skype, WLM etc... but sometimes I see a white or a black screen with a 'loading circle' in there. Blue is the LED light, I can see it in Device Manager too, but there is no picture, just 'loading '.

    One more thing: have you noticed this problem in the first moments after installing Win7 or later?
    Have you installed something that may be the reason for this?

  • Satellite A300: Polish character does not appear using hotkey with 'c '.


    I am user of Toshiba Satellite A300 and early on, I discovered that there the combination Alt + C assigned to commissioning ATI - Catalyst Control Center. Unfortunately this combination should normally produce Polish characters 'Â' (it seems not properly on that this page is in some sort after as I copied the word - it's 'c' with stong top - here its capital version "Â" accent).

    However, the necessary character of Polish does not appear.
    I can get the capital version with Ctr + Alt + Shift + c, but no normal version.

    I guess that there must be an error in the locale so I tried to change to English and Polish with zero results.

  • Satellite A300 - Chicony webcam does not work after upgrade to windows 7

    I'm frustrated so I came here to see if anyone knows a way to help solve this problem.

    I have a Toshiba Satellite A300, which came with Windows Vista 64 - bit pre-installed. After about a year or two to have the laptop, I decided to upgrade to Windows 7 64 bit. In the process, I believe that the driver of my webcam (Chicony usb 2.0 camera) has been eliminated.

    When I go into the Device Manager in the Control Panel, the webcam is not listed; nor is "imaging devices."

    I tried to download the driver manually, but I get an error message "Webcam open fail." Restart the computer or the camera. »

    My computer has registered my webcam as 'unknown device '.

    If anyone knows how to solve this problem, please, I beg you, let me know.

    > My computer has registered my webcam as 'unknown device '.
    > I tried to download the driver manually, but I get an error message "Webcam open fail." Restart the computer or the camera. »

    This means that the the webcam driver is not installed correctly.
    Visit the page of European driver of Toshiba and install the software/driver webcam just for this model of laptop.

    If the installation fails, restart the laptop and the tent.
    This should solve the problem.

  • On Satellite A300-1MX webcam does not work properly

    After my windows Vista system crashed 16 December 2011, I had made recovery.
    After that, I have not found any driver for the webcam on the computer laptop everything. On the Toshiba support page, I finally found the 1.7 version, but this does not at all!

    He always appears: driver Webcam open fails, restart the computer or the camera. Since it's built in camera I tried with the restart of the computer, but which did not help at all. So I tried with the option to repair the driver with Install Shield Wizard. The program has done something, but without success.

    So I uninstalled and reinstalled and it did not help at all!

    Someone has an idea?


    Found an article in the knowledge base of Toshiba which describes this error and provides a solution to this problem.
    + Why displays the error message: "Webcam driver open fail. Restart the computer or the camera. » ? +

    But its related to Portege M600 and Satellite U300 only.
    However, you should also try to perform a BIOS update. After that, set the BIOS to default settings and save the changes. Then try to reinstall the software of webcam once more.

    You should also check the Device Manager. Here in Device Manager that the webcam should be recognized as a USB device, if this isn't the case, then it means that the webcam was not recognized by the OS and that means there could be a hardware problem

    As far as I know, the webcam is connected to the USB controller on the motherboard. If the cable connection is lost, then the webcam is not recognized in Device Manager; or as a USB device or an unknown device.

  • Satellite A300 - S-video does not detect TV

    Dear all
    Last week, I bought your new product: Toshiba Satellite A300

    I liked its release specifications specially s-video.
    When I arrived at my house, I have it plugged into my TV:
    Bomba Toshiba 29A3MJ

    I used S-Video/RCA cable:

    Then, I put the TV fashion which I usually use to another laptop.
    I kept clicking on Fn + F5 on the satellite phone without exploitation.
    Nothing has been posted on the TV screem.
    Before, I used to connect to HP Pavilion dv2000 in the same TV using the s-video and it worked fine.

    Please advice how to solve this problem.
    Best regards


    Usually, this should work.
    Both devices must be OFF. Connect then the laptop and the TV using this cable.
    Turn on the TV and the laptop starts.

    If the use of the FN + F5 will not detect the image on the TV then I would recommend checking the settings in your graphics card properties.

    I put t know what graphics card you have, but my Satellite phone has been equipped with the Intel graphics card and I can change the settings in Control Panel-> Intel GMA graphics card.

    Maybe your laptop supports the ATI card. If these parameters were in ATI catalyst.

    PS: Check if you are using the latest version of the BIOS and the latest graphics card driver too.
