Satellite A500-1GL - version of last Toshiba power saver

The guy with the A500-1GL, please, tell me what version of Toshiba Power Saver do you currently have? It is displayed in the menu of advanced power settings.

I ask, because, I suppose, that GST of the toshiba .eu site is pretty old and my laptop came with a newer version. Am I wrong?


Why the version is so important to you?
Important thing is that everything is working properly and portable saves energy if she runs with low CPU utilization.

What operating system do you have exactly?
If you use Windows 7 or Vista, Power Saver is a part of the package of added value.

  • Satellite A100-599: cannot start service Toshiba Power Saver

    I have A100-599 with Vista pre-installed. As you know there is that Toshiba Power Saver comes with mobile vista power settings. Not always, but sometimes when I turn on the computer and start windows I get this message "service Toshiba Power Saver could not start.

    When I checked in Control Panel-> system-> Services if the service indeed off I saw he did start and run.

    Can someone tell me why this message sometimes? It is a software issue or maybe there is a problem with the hardware?


    Maybe I m wrong but as I know Toshiba has not designed for Vista operating system energy saver!
    Vista uses a power options clean that looks like a little bit like the Toshiba power saver, but not energy from Toshiba!

    All laptop computers that are shipped with Vista have any preinstalled Toshiba eve!

  • Satellite L300-1F8 - how to uninstall Toshiba Power Saver?


    I have Windows 7 on my laptop. Accidentally, I installed the saver of energy for XP and I can't uninstall it (error 0x7E).

    Do you know how to uninstall it?

    Hey Buddy,

    Normally the Toshiba Power Saver is designed for XP only so I think that's the reason why you can t uninstall it.

    In any case, you should try it with CCleaner. This freeware tool can also remove installed programs, as well as s worth a try! :)

  • Satellite A100 PSAARE: Toshiba Power Saver + graphics card noise


    Is there another URL where I can get a version update of Toshiba Power Saver for my computer drivers laptop Satellite A100 PSAARE other than the home page?

    It seems that it is not determinative of CPU fan (he always keep at maximum speed).

    Also, I noticed the graphics (GeForce 7600) too loud.

    If the monitor is off I can't hear it (just the CPU fan), but as soon as I started working it is audible and as a continuous beep kid.

    Is there a (software/hardware) fix for this?

    Kind regards.


    The European driver of Toshiba page is one place where you can get the drivers and tools for your European Satellite A100 PSAARE model.
    This time it s a v7.03.07.I Power Saver for Windows Vista!

    But I must say that I see no problem of software on your laptop.
    Cooling modules and fans have to run with higher performance to make sure that your hardware components may be cooled properly.

    Maybe a cooling module cleaning might help to improve the internal cooling and noise reduction.
    From time to time, I clean my fans for laptop using compressed air stream and the fans are running more silent.

  • Satellite A500-1GL - power of Windows 7 and the games options

    Hi all

    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
    Torti :)


    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:
    [How to clean a Toshiba laptop cooling system? |]

    And for games, you can use high power option or balanced Windows Performance.

  • Satellite A500-1GL - cannot upgrade the BIOS


    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.

  • Satellite A500-1GL - slow WiFi

    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.

    Help! ................................please!

    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.

    I've had my Satellite A500-1GL (PSAR9E) for a few weeks now and it's great except, that he puts himself on every morning at about 08:20.

    * The machine is * shut down * every night, (hibernation or suspended), usually between 23:00 and 01:00.
    * I was * stop * switch wifi on the case of the machine every night after his stop, (because I was wondering if the problem came from wake-up-on-lan).
    * I've been unplugging all the usb devices on the machine after
    * I have even unplugged my helmet just in case it makes a difference, (it's not)...

    I was leaving the unit plugged in, but there has been no interruption of power any since I got the machine.

    There is no one else at home when this happens, and I have no pets!

    I'm completely puzzled as to why the machine turns on, (and almost exactly the same time each day!)

    Anyone have any ideas here?

    Thank you

  • Satellite A500-1GL - software cooling question

    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

  • Re: Differences between Satellite L505-144, L555 - 11K and Satellite A500-1GL

    What are the main differences between L505-144, L555 - 11K and A500-1GL?

    They are the same price and seem to be very similar, with only small differences in processing power, graphics and sound.

    What is the best model?


    I think you should take a look on the page of specification for Toshiba laptop and need to compare two specifications:

    * Satellite L505-144 *.

    * Satellite A500-1GL. *

    Satellite L505-144 was released in the United Kingdom and the Satellite A500-1GL was published in Germany.

    L505-144 supports more rapid and better CPU, it was delivered with Win 7 32 bit and 64 bit. It supports rather than ATI GPU nVidia but the HARD drive is smaller than 320 GB instead of 500 GB

    The version of the video driver 275.33 is not an official version of Toshiba. I checked the Web from Toshiba site and for your model of laptop (model PSAR9E number) version is the most recent. So I recommend installing this display driver because it s pre-tested Toshiba designed for your model of laptop display driver.

    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
