Satellite A60: Resume failure on the POST
Hey all the... I have a laptop a60 and yesterday evening he decided to hang up, then when I reset it doesn't seem to work, then he gets to the TOSHIBA screen outpost then a few seconds later, it gives me a message "failed to resume and press a key" and then just hangs...
You could have simply lost the start notice. Go into the bios and make sure that it is configured to boot from hard drive 1.
Another possible reason is that the hard drive has gone wrong.
The other main reason for this message is occurring is that files on the hard disk (such as command.com) have somehow become corrupted or deleted.
In this case try to recover the operating system from the Toshiba Recovery CD.
Check it out.
I have a problem with my satellite A60.
I had the computer for about a year and a half and have never had any serious problems with it of any kind. However, last week the keyboard started to fail, first with only a few keys, then the full keyboard.
It never bothered me much because I'm quite familiar with the Toshiba computers. So I connected an external keyboard, and I was back in business.
I used it very well so far but I put the computer into hibernation last night and when I woke up this morning he said "resume failure and press a key to continue."
I have keys and nothing happens, it just stay on this screen. I try to access BIOS by pressing ESC when I turn on the computer and the priority is set at STARTUP DO not RESUME, hover, it won't let me highlight to change anyway. The computer won't let me boot from the cd. Basically, it's just stuck on the screen and that's all.
I wonder if there is another way to get around this or is my computer ended for good. I was running fedora linux at the time of the accident.
Seems difficult but not insoluble it s...
It resembles a hardware problem, but I won't for sure.
This keyboardthing can be a defective keyboardcontroller, because your description of the error is describing a similar case that I got with my camera.
I send the machine to my local servicepartner and they exchanged my motherboard and keyboard and after repair of the error, I had never bothered me again.
Just a quick question: some fluids come from on your keyboard?
Have a nice weekend
I have a toshiba Satellite A350D-10Y and I get some sounds of the sound system of the laptop, but a kind of Mermaid on the mother, accompanied by lights driver dvd, map emitte acoustics is two short beeps. I'm getting these two short beeps loops within a period of 5 seconds +-.
I downloaded a video for you, to listen to the sound emitted by the MB, in the end you can hear better because you get less noise from the cpu fan:
Feature of the motherboard: ATI external graphics card
Things I've done:
-Remove the battery and try to put on without it.
-Switch of RAM on the slot a RAM
-Clean cpu fan one its exhaust
-Change is the motherboard on a new
Now, the problem was taken up to, or is the processor or the external graphics card.
I think that the problem of the graphics card, because if these was a problem of the processor, I'd get the audio system of the laptop beeps and not a buzzer next to the MB.
Can anyone here help me?
From my point of few it of not possible to say what s wrong with the laptop without running certain diagnostic tests and check the part.
The often shorter and emits a beep when turning procedure appears due to the POST (power on self-test) failure.
This essential POST routine determines the available memory real quantity and checks for the presence of required hardware components.
In case one of the hardware components would be defective, the power on self test could not be transmitted correctly and the laptop would begin to create some beeps.
If you are sure that the modules of memory so that the card mother isn't affected, then one of the pieces referred to as CPU / GPU can be the troublemaker.
my laptop is Toshiba Satellite A60 116
I need four parts, I couln can't find number inside and have no ideal is what numer. Please help technicial analyze and tell me the number of pieces exactly.

Thank you very much.
I think you should get in touch with an authorized ;) services provider
Here he s a user forum and I think that an ASP can answer this question better. In addition, you can also order new parts.
Here is a list of them:

I installed Windows XP Pro on my laptop Toshiba Satellite A60, but after that I couldn't use the function key. I've been looking for driver but I haven't found yet, even in this Web site.
Someone knows it please help me what to do. Thank you so :)
That fear I know, first I have to install Hotkey Utility.
After that, please install all other tools & utilities. Try this and let me know if was successfully.
I have a laptop SATELLITE A60-302, and I had a problem with cd player. I want to format the computer (WIN XP) and I wanned to ask if I can format the computer not by the cd player but another way as disk on key or something...
Your best bet might be trying to use an external CD/DVD drive to install Windows XP (must confirm that your laptop can boot from USB CD/DVD). I would not recommend it otherwise because they are pretty complicated and you will encounter other issues.
My Satellite A60 CD-ROM/DVD-ROM drive has stopped working properly. He is more able to read DVD - ROM, a serious problem because the recovery disc is a DVD-ROM.
I recently bought a replacement drive, the same model as the old disk number. But when I installed it, the computer does not recognize the drive. The drive has power and running disks. The computer does not know it is there.
Someone has an idea of what can be done to encourage the player from the computer? I updated the BIOS to the latest version, but that did not help.
I appreciate any suggestions.
Hi Phil premium,
The old drive is recognized correctly in the BIOS?
I'm not sure but some readers have a rider on the back where the connector is. There you can switch between Master, Slave and Cable Select. Please put the jumper on Master and if it s does not, try the slave mode.
In the worst cases, the new drive is defective and you must return it to the store and ask for a replacement.
Hi I have a laptop Satellite A60, I want to turn on my wireless LAN but the switch on the side is covered on as it is just for show. I to believe I can turn it on, the symbol to the fron and the on / off on the side, but as I said is covered more and not a switch like showld be. Theis means I can't get a wireless connection or is it a fault in Notepad? Help, please.
Thank you very much
I don't have an answer, I just want to share your frustration. Recently I got a wireless home hub, but I can't go to this topic with my A60.
I also have the light at the front and the switch sheets on the right and a manual that talks about wireless LANs in bright tones.
I was led to believe it was active wireless, but it isn't!
Sometimes even with a graphic 'research Wireless' but it is useless if it doesn't have what it takes to work [when it is in. the wireless Hub].
Hi, I would like to know the exact reference of the main card for Toshiba Satellite A60-202 with 512 MB of memory and 40 GB of type HD PSA60E-OLP06TFR model SA60-202
Is your device faulty? Want to swap the motherboard?
Hi, apologies for this new! I would like to increase the memory of my Satellite A60-672, where I can find what I need (including the number) etc.
Your device can handle with max 1280MB. The compatible modules are:
PC2700 256 MB (PA3311U - 1 M 25)
PC2700 512 MB (PA3312U - 1 M 51)
1024MO PC2700 (PA3313U-1M1G)
I have a Toshiba Satellite A60, who has recently developed a serious problem and is currently blocked in a crash restart cycle. He started with the message "missing or damaged system32\DRIVERS\Ntfs", I've read about this problem on discussion forums, but am still unable to find a solution.
Currently on start error messages appear indicating a driver is missing or damaged, the Toshiba start page has vertical lines of missing data and on a few occasions it will fully start after a short period of time vertical lines appear on the screen and it crashes.
I tried a number of bugs:
* Re installed windows XP pro (formatting the hard drive and renew the partitions)
* Update the bios on the site of toshiba in version 1.90 (I think that the update also flashes the bios, but would need this confirmation?)
Swapping the hard drive with a portable, yet no longer starts and HD works fine in another laptop, dismissing the possibility of missing or corrupt files.
I realize that this could be a problem with the RAM and think that the laptop has 512 fixed to the motherboard, accessable without stripping down, but do not know how to determine if the RAM is the problem. While trying these fixes, I get problems with the start of the player and can only get the disk to launch and recognize the CD about 1 to 10 times.
Could someone suggest a remedy or a fix I can try? or suggest how they fixed a similar problem. Thank you very much
You ssounds not very good ;(description
The hardware malfunction appears to be responsible for the vertical lines on the screen
If vertical lines appear also an external display, the jury may be wrong.
You re right, I Googled, and it seems that Sat A60 supports an internal memory.
As far as I know, this memory cannot be removed and only an electronics could solve this internal memory.
But are you sure that the internal memory is impaired. The device supports only 256 MB internal memory and other modules are removable
If you can try to replace
I think to buy a new laptop.
I currently have a Satellite A60-142 and I only am not too thrilled about this model since the fan makes me crazy... It is constantly running and compared to my old laptop (Satellite 1410-304), it makes a lot of noise...
So, I want to get a new laptop which is quieter...
I need basically for email/surfing/Online games/digital still camera.
Thanks for the tips!
Well, it is a known issue that, often, the fan works. If you play games or use other applications, the laptop works at high performance and the parts of the device as the processor or graphics card produce a lot of heat. In this case, aeration run also at high speed. It is a simple fact.
As far as I know, you can try to change the settings of cooling in the power utility.
In addition it is not easy to say which model of laptop runs more quiet. In the notebooks of high performance fans are bigger and louder by contrast office books are ineffective but easier to cool.
It's not easy to make a choice
I have a Toshiba a60-392. I reinstalled Windows XP Pro in my book. Then I tried to install the Toshiba Power Saver. The installation seems to be okay. On the last screen, when I pressed the "Finish" button, it causes a fatal error. Then if I try to run the Toshiba power from the control panel Manager, it says that I have no right to do so. Finally, if I try to uninstall it, it causes the same fatal error during the installation process. The error message is: "a fatal error has occurred. The program will end. "Code: 0x7E. So I'm a little desperate. Any ideas?

Hi, you tried to uninstall the energy saver in Windows mode "economy"?
My M40 RESUME from hibernation/sleep as soon as I open the cover, currently in the standby power button action is set to Hibernate and cover is set to do nothing do I put into hibernation and close the lid when I open windows back it doesn't wait for me to press the power button. Is it possible to take that when I press the power button not when I open the lid. or is it a defect?
Well, as far as I know the power of setting energy saver button is official on Shut down
and the lid close to stand-by. You can check if it works.
In addition, you can go to the--> Power Options Control Panel.
There, please check if eating patterns are defined on Toshiba Power Saver and take a look on the Hibernate tab.
Check the settings.
My Satellite Pro M40 hard drive died and I want to install a new drive. Unfortunately, my old drive is 60Gig and the Web of Toshiba parts site has only 40 GB or 80 gig drives.
I have problems with the recovery disk if the hard drive is not exactly the same thing?
Your advice would be appreciated.
No, he should t be any problem with the Toshiba Recovery CD.
On the recovery CD, you'll find a Windows OS, Toshiba drivers and utilities and software further.
These entire applications are packed into image files.
You should only be sure that the HARD drive is compatible with your laptop and it will be recognized in the BIOS.
Then simply to boot from the recovery and installation CD must start.
