Satellite A500-1GL: 2 questions: the fan speed & graphic card driver failures
I have 2 questions, hopefully someone can help me with that.
* The first question - quick fan *.
I'm on online gamer second life and world of the craft of war) recently my fan speed crank up to 90 percent for about 5/10 minutes before leaving quiet. Then speed up again after a period of time. I'm confused as to why he did this because when I check my cpu temp is only make 40%, and I use a cool buffer table.
I'm looking for some advise here because all said Toshiba was making sure I had the latest bios update. But I would have thought it is not the processor overheating the fan must not be crank that quickly. My laptop is only 2 months old.
Can anyone help, should I be worried?
* Second question - graphics driver *.
Also on a couple of times I got my screen briefly go black and then recover. A pop up appears saying something along the lines of the core of the graphics card.... Driver recovered. It flashes if fast, that I never see the entire message. Don't you think that something is wrong with the graphics card? (card nividia geforce gt300m)
I really hope that someone can offer more help that Toshiba has done, as I am a bit unhappy to be problems on a 2 month old laptop.
Thank you for reading and I look forward to any Advisor.

The cooling fan is controlled by the fan table in the BIOS. Fan table contains information about the temperature and the fan speed that means the depands on some level temperature fan speed.
Over all the possible game features as the CPU, GPU, produce heat and the heat dissipation is high
Cooling modules would begin to turn faster if the temperature level would be exceeded
This is nothing exceptional everything at stake

I read on a similar question, and apparently, the graphics card DRIVER crashed during games
Maybe it's a compatibility problem between game and pilot
In most cases the graphics card driver update should fix this and I read on some forums that it has helped in many cases
I tried to upgrade the BIOS on my Satellite A500-1GL (PSAR9E) for awhile now, but a dead battery so I can not go beyond the security check at the beginning. Is it all of the way around it, like I'm connected with current alternative, so I don't see what the problem is! Could I have possibly self-extracting zip files.
Any help would be appreciated as this is very frustrating!
I think that you will not be able to update the BIOS, if your battery is dead.
Victory based BIOS update can be updated from Windows system, and there is a security option that allow you to update the BIOS only if the laptop is connected to the power adapter and if the battery is charged.
You can update the BIOS using a traditional BIOS version, but as far as I know that Toshiba service partner could do that.
If you have two options:
Purchase a battery in order to update the BIOS by using win according to BIOS version or you will get in touch with an ASP in your country and will ask you to update the BIOS by using the traditional version of BIOS.
But the BIOS update is necessary to you?
I have a laptop with the old BIOS version and I don't have that day even if the new version has been released.
First of all, sorry for my English, I'm french :)
Second, I'm going to buy this PC next month and I have the opportunity to buy it without a Windows license (I'm already a Windows license).
So I'm lost to find the drivers on the download page, because there are several versions of drivers (for example drivers: Nvidia or Realtek Semiconductor Corporation)
(Important drivers) drivers I need to download once to install Windows Seven 64-bit.
Thirdly, I would like to know if it is possible to install display drivers downloaded from the Web of Nvidia site and not that of Toshiba?
Thanks for your help :)
> So I'm lost to find the drivers on the download page, because there are several versions of drivers
Satellite A500-1GL is a part of the PSAR9E series. If you need drivers then you must choose Satellite A500 PSAR9E
> What (important drivers) drivers I need to download once to install Windows Seven 64-bit.
Almost all of the drivers are important... the essential drivers are sound, lan, wlan, graphic card driver, touchpad, etc.
VAP (value added package) and utility support memory card Flash are required for keys FN and buttons of media control
> Thirdly, I would like to know if it is possible to install display drivers downloaded from the Web of Nvidia site and not that of Toshiba?
Usually it s not recommended to use the drivers from nVidia or an ATI page because these drivers don't support drivers Toshiba overheating protection
But if you want to use the nVidia drivers so that at you own risk
Installation can be a bit harder running the exe file will not work because you will get a message that this driver is not allowed, but you can install all the drivers in Device Manager you can point to the driver files, stored on the HARD drive and this will allow to choose the nVidia Driver
Just brought a C660D. Someone knows the software to control the fan speed?
My laptop CPU fan always turns to 74-80% of max speed. That's a lot of noise. I tried cpucool, but it did not work.
If does not work, the fan speed will remain at the temperature of 0 with cpu at 38 oC. But with any operation tiny, like the click of the mouse, it will change again to 74%, CPU temperature does not change.
Have you ever tried the Eco mode that uses the cooling battery optimized method?
I have the Toshiba Satellite U500 - 11G.
I've recently updated the BIOS because my CPU fan did not work under Ubuntu,
But after the update, my CPU fan speed is faster then normal and make a lot of noise (even if the CPU is cool) when I use Windows 7 is still stay on fast speed making a lot of noise.
Do we sort of degrading the BIOS or thw way to earn the slow CPU fan speed?
Update BIOS because of Linux? You know that Linux is not possible on this laptop model?
In any case, to reduce the fan sped Please reduce the cooling in saving settings method.

I have a problem with a DPC latency caused by the driver of NVIDIA card.
I use my computer for audio and it is really not possible to work.
chart with geforce abled:
When I turn off the graphics card:
Please give me an answer.
My computer is a Toshiba satellite U500-1DZ, intel i5
How about driver sound, display driver and BIOS update.
Have you tried that?
To be honest, I don't know if this could help you or not, but if an update is available, then you should do this
You said, audio performance is best when the GPU is disabled
It chip NVidia s then maybe you should take a look in the nVida forum in order to get more details
OK, so about a month or two ago, my computer has a faulty hard drive and I had to replace it with a hard drive in my old laptop, I tried to update directly from the HP site, but could not find the graphics (Radeon 7450) driver. Suddenly, I discovered that windows can get these drivers. Everything was recovered (with the exception of a driver of PCI express), but all my games have been lag, unlike before my hard drive has crashed. Later, I tried to update using Sim drivers, find the PCI express driver and used the graphics card. After this update, I discovered that my graphics card has changed to be Radeon 7450 m for Radeon series 6400 m. I tried to backup, but it unfortunately does not work. Y at - it anway to solve this problem and solve game problems?
Pavilion g6t - 1 d 00
Intel i5 processor
Intel HD 3000 and Radeon switchable graphics 7450 m
4 GB OF RAM
hard drive 5400 RPM (allows to have the hard drive 7200 RPM, if it would be a big difference in performance)I am a lover of old computer for 12 years (don't judge me), a client for HP for 4 years now. I enjoy helping people with their computers and put a smile on their face
I work with Windows 7 users, so I'm still learning more about Windows 8.
I suggest you uninstall all graphics drivers (intel and AMD) and install that driver who as you can see on the info system requirements, support for graphic map of 7450M.
It is very important to note that you only need to install the AMD driver for your laptop because it is a driver custom made for adapters of switchable graphics from AMD/Intel that has your laptop.
This file will install the drivers for the two GPUS, and you should never attempt to update the part configuration, Intel graphics (you can periodically receive notifications from Windows Update that new Intel graphics driver is available).
If we succeed in updating the Intel GPU drivers, they have also successfully caused the AMD GPUS to stop working.
Is it possible to adjust the speed of the fan of this laptop? As I saw in PC Health monitor the fan speed is mainly of 0%, and sometimes it amounts to 70% (on idling) and quite large making noise.
I wish to address is it permanently on.
Is this possible?
> Is it possible to adjust the speed of the fan of this laptop? As I saw in PC Health monitor the fan speed is mainly of 0%, and sometimes it amounts to 70% (on idling) and make a big enough noise
I agree with you, I also own a500-1dn and it makes big noise even while surfing Internet. This forum was suggested to update Bios to reduce the fan noise.
Not so long ago, my favorite laptop A500-1GL began to annoy me with overheating. Average temperature of GPU in State of rest was 100? (CPU - 38-40 ° C). When I tried to play the game or to view HD videos, temperature rise up to 105-107 C, then the laptop turns off automatically. The fan speed is not maximum (I know, cause I remember how strong it was months ago, when I played something like second StarCraft), I think it's constantly at 60% of its speed interesting thing, it was that this fan is a not speed up exactly before the emergency stop, your stay in these 60%. Some people talk about BIOS problem. I've updated the BIOS with the latest version. The problem remains. Then I tried to reinstall the Toshiba Power Saving utility. Nothing has worked. But I noticed that when I change the method of cooling, fan speeds up, cool laptop at normal temperature (GPU included) until the moment where the rotation speed is about 60% of the max. Then everything happens from the beginning - fan still at 60%, temperature of the GPU runs at 100 degrees, all bad breed. Looks like software problem.
I uninstalled Toshiba Power Saver and now there's a thing. When the laptop is turned on, the fan is quiet (very well, as it used to be). If I won't use it application high req., all right. Once, I try to use this kind of applications, up to 70% fan speed (its a little louder than with GST) then it stucks there. The good thing is that the temperature of the GPU is not so high and idle, the bad news, it's now that I can't work with hard long apps - once stuck fan, minutes later GPU temperature causes stop to avoid damage.
have you tried to clean the cooling system?
The virus bad operation/application systems can also make Cpu run high. Not easy to say indeed
Some know maybe my previous posts about my problem with the fan on my Satellite A500-1GL worry when I'm online game. It is disturbing to hit the 90%. And his pass even with the update of the BIOS and Toshiba now advise to do a factory restore then fails to send in for repair.
Looking at the power options,
I was wondering if someone could recommend this power options I should consider and it would have made no difference for the wise game fan (secondlife seems to be the main problem with the fan turn the crank to the top)
Any help would be appreciated, trying to think of something that might help which may be a simple solution to this problem of fan
To be honest, a lot of activity of fan during the games would be normal I think because games need a lot of CPU and GPU power, they always run at a very high level. This means a lot of heat will occur and it must be cooled to avoid damage.
Of more if I have the games, it s not important how the fan noise creates because I hear music or dialogue game Isn t it so? ;)
In any case, from time to time it s advisable to clean the cooling system of your laptop using a jet of compressed air:

And for games, you can use high power option or balanced Windows Performance.
I know this is a silly question but its actually something I know not so thought I would ask.
I almost always plug my laptop into the supply line (satellite a500 1gl)
I was wondering have you actually keep the battery installed even when using the electrical network.
Or is it really advisable to remove the battery when you use the network?
I didn't know if the battery should always be in place.
Thanks for your help
A few years ago it was recommended to remove the battery of the laptop if the AC adapter is plugged. What keeps the constant charge battery
New age of batteries are better you can leave the battery in the Bay it s ok and it should not affect the performance
However, sooner or later each battery would die it s only a matter of time, you know
I recently bought a Satellite A500-1GL
The use of the F2 key at startup to access the BIOS worked fine until I changed the settings in BIOS to get a faster position for Windows 7, then after this change, that the F2 key gets me to the BIOS, the computer laptop just posts to Windows 7.
I downloaded and installed Hardware Set Up program of Toshiba which adjusts the BIOS settings while still in Windows, but how the "F2" to work again?
I thought changing the hard drive might work, but it did not.
I seemed to have lost access to the bios using the F2 key.
> changed the settings in the BIOS to get a faster position for Windows 7
Now to maybe stupid question, but what is the name of this option?
When you start your laptop you see on the background info on the use of F2 to enter the BIOS settings, or too?
re-installed OS updated all bios drivers etc. Can't get anything to record. Skype not getting no sound. Do not record other programs.
Have uninstalled and reinstalled all the audio drivers, including the driver of the webcam.
Have you checked the forums, but cannot find any solution.
Can anyone help?

You have reinstalled original Win7 64 bit family Premium that you got with your machine?
I have a Satellite L855 - 11 k of Pentecost of windows 8 (bought for my this latop came with windows7)
But they have a serious problem with the FAN, can't when I play a games fan powerful upward speed.
He is always 30%.
The FAN replied that at the request of the processor, the processor in the games works only 20-30% > rate does not rise. While the CPU temperature at 80 ° C
Is there a way to force the fan speed?
Sorry for my English, but I'm Spanish
When you play games using high-performance power management and position yourself before starting the game. Please also check cooling method option in advanced for this power management power settings. Make sure that the Performance option value.
Bought a Satellite A500-1GL, because he promised performance a few weeks ago and I was disappointed.
Lasts longer the laptop much longer than children should start up, but this isn't the painful question, I had struggled to trouble.
When connected to the router it downloads to 9,46 Mb/s but I bought a laptop for mobile convenience.
When there is wireless download speed gives a very painful 0.09 Mb/s.
Here's what I've tried so far.
Seller told me it was a problem of Internet Explorer and download Firefox.
It took nearly an hour and has not made a difference.
I disabled the virus checking and firewall individually and collectively and no help.
Was told to change the channel on the router, I've done and no difference.
Then said that if I changed the TX auto at 100% power level the problem should be solved.
Download but always at the same painful level.
Laptop of the child works very well exactly in the same places in the House, at 9 more Mbps, where my brand new Toshiba crawls to 0.09, or sometimes 0.10 MB/s.
I also tried to turn all devices wireless into house arrest, but it did not help.
Can someone help me please. I'm at my wits end and regretting spending so much money on this «high-performance notebook»
Oh, I'm on Windows 7, have updated the Realtek RTL8191SE Wireless LAN 802.11n PCI-E NIC and am ready for the hills.
Have now updated the WLAN and the BIOS (?) but still not good.
A lot of reading of problems like that of machines Toshiba.
Really thought it was a good brand.
Blood pressure is very high.
I guess I'll be back tomorrow and get my money back.
Not suitable for use, it was sold.
