Satellite C670D-121 - problems with Win7 recovery

I have a problem and I need your help.

I have a laptop Satellite C670D-121 in the original hardware configuration.

After a message on a process (my 10 year old son told me. "" But I have not seen this message), press the OK button and then the cell phone has rebooted. "
But restarting didn't work no more.

Also the recovery with the recoveryfunction of the laptop was not possible.
Now, I ordered the UDF of recovery and the restoration of the laptop is possible.

But in the moment where the UDF must be removed and the laptop should be repeated, I see the letters "Start window", the screen goes black and I can only see the cursor.

After a short time, the cursor jumps into the upper left corner. And then comes the whith window an error message. (s. picture)

I ordered a new UDF = the same error recovery!
Support couldn't help me.
Boot Linux from the CD, the laptop works very well.

If a HARD disk error and memory can be excluded.

Can someone help me please?
Thank you.


I m not quite about this error message, but it seems that s associated with memory issue I/O (input / output).

You mentioned a cursor blinking in the upper left corner.
This symptom is already known to me. I had such a problem blinking cursor also and in my case it was related to abnormal or bad memory and HARD drive.
I had to replace the HARD drive after all firstly by the modules of memory in order to solve this problem.

From my point of few your question may be linked to the faulty memory because the I/O message is linked to problems of memory too.

You said that Linux works properly using the Live CD?
I guess you booted the laptop using this live cd but did not install the system on the HARD disk.
Well, I don t think that this could be a clear proof that the RAM or HARD drive is OK.

In my opinion, these parts must be checked

    When I restart windows, windows stops, then the led power and WiFi will Flash once and the laptop turns on again and when I stop, the laptop turns off correctly, but when I press the power button to turn on the laptop again, the led power and WiFi will Flash once, the laptop does not light and I have to wait 5 minutes about yo start it again.
    I sent it to the Toshiba Service Center in my country, and they said "we must restore the recovery image", even if it's a hardware problem, not a software, and at the same time, I'm very busy and don't have the time to reinstall the entire system and software applications still.

    What proves my idea it is when I enter SETUP (F2) and output the laptop do the same thing (the LED will blink once and no longer lights)

    You can do the following: update your bios if not already done and then try with different operating systems (linux, windows, etc.) if the error reappears, then you should send your machine to the partner service and the statement that the error occurs independent of the operating system running.

    Sometimes, they need a few comments otherwise they won´t anything...

  • Satellite C850 - found problems with the networking and the FN key

    Hey everybody,

    I work on a Satellite Toshiba C850, that my parents recently bought and spin in a certain number of questions.

    (1) wireless won't connect to my network. Have done the following: verified by connecting on two other computers, reset the router, the open network, reset the map, reinstalled the realtek drivers, checked the settings in the networking of Toshiba Utilities. End result is he's going to try, and fail. Wired LAN works fine.

    (2) FN key does not work. Have you checked the region and it is OK, have tried to use the Flash cards - no change, checked with the screen keyboard and can check the FN key does not register.

    I noticed that the first problem is common, but there are obvious positive results. If anyone can offer any assistance, I would appreciate it a lot.

    Before you begin to discuss your problems can you please tell us what OS you are using?
    Are you using the original OS that you got with your laptop? I mean original recovery image has been tested and works correctly, with the factory settings that all should especially the FN keys.

    1 / What do you mean with refusing? your WLAN is visible for your laptop?

    2 / if there is problem with the feature keys FN and you use Win7 try please reinstall extra package from Toshiba.

  • Satellite P100-202: problems with screen again

    Hi all! I write about a problem with the screen of my Toshiba P100-202. I recently posted in the thread "Satellite P100-202: screen will freeze" and my current problem is actually quite similar to what is explained in the thread "Satellite P100-119: display no longer works. Here is my story, hoping someone can help me avoid having to send the computer to a technician:
    I decided after my previous problem, get my screen replaced. Everything seemed fine, except on the occaisonal instances, especially when I was using the "Internet Explorer" program, in which the screen sort of will re-start, IE. everything went black for a few seconds (music, etc. However would continue) then (boom) everything should reappear, sometimes in ultra - zoom for a second or two. The computer (OS = Windows 7) would report "problem with NVIDIA graphics driver", and then the operations would continue normally. This happened several times, but not often, and I was not too worried about it. Then, a few days before, I was using the latest release candidate of Internet Explorer 9 and the screen is blacked out and my music has continued and I thought 'OK, no problem' and then after a few seconds, and then the music stopped (and I thought ' uh - oh ') and then the blue screen of death.
    OK, don't panic, reboot, but of course there is no word of welcome, no nothing, just a blank screen, with the backlight still works created a worrisome greyish tint. And then suddenly the mouse appears, followed by the entire screen, so I unwisely rejected the incident. Ten minutes later, same thing and this time, not even the blue screen of death as consolement, just gray nothingness.
    A few days of rest, a dusting of battery, but no, even if I think the operating system works very well (caps lock light work and little purrs and snoring occur as usual), he has no doubt about the fact that the screen is not working.
    PS Sorry if my message is too long, and no, I don't have access to an external display!

    While I'm at it, someone is able to explain why a battery lasting 25 minutes can take several hours or even days to recharge?

    Unfortunately I can not offer a final solution or diagnosis, but I think you should test the functionality with the original recovery image (recovery DVD) you have with your laptop.

    Install the OS using this disc and test functionality. If the same thing happen over and over again there must be a hardware problem.
    If you need to bring the laptop to the service ask first how much cost repair. Maybe it will be too expensive and you can buy the new laptop instead of paying lots of money to repair this old model of laptop.

    At first was a little bit the theory for a better understanding.

    In the latest Toshiba delivered recovery facilities DVD discs with all the new models of laptops. "" Since then, I think, two or three drives of years facilities are not part of the package and recovery image is saved on the HARD disk and the recovery disc can be created using preinstalled "Toshiba Recovery Disc Creator. This recovery image is not saved on a separate recovery partition but on the second partition of HARD drive (data partition E) in the folder called HDDRecovery.
    The screenshot on 1.5 GB WinRE partition has therefore nothing to do with the Toshiba recovery image.

    This creation of recovery operation may work with the factory only settings. with other words, if you change the partition structure, or if you deleted this folder HDDRecovery you won't be able to create the recovery disk or install the operating system using HARD drive recovery option.

    I guess that you do not have this folder HDDRecovery more and because of this, Toshiba Recovery Disc Creator starts with error message. This tool needs direct access to these data recovery to create the drive recovery facilities.

    I think all this bother you much, but it's your fault. Reminder with the trace message is preinstalled on each Toshiba notebook with HDD recovery:
    * Important INFORMATION *.

    * your system is equipped with a hard drive recovery system. If you need to repair your computer in the restaurant to the original factory condition, you can do it directly *.
    * from the HDD (press F8 when you start your computer, choose "Repair your computer" and follow the instructions in the menu) or create a bootable recovery for this fin.* drive carrier

    * Toshiba recommends you create recovery disk medium using the "Toshiba Recovery Disc Creator' to ensure that you are able to restore your computer to the original state that is installed at the factory, even if your computer is severely damaged.*

    What you can do now is to order the new original facilities Toshiba drive under or you can use the Microsoft installation for the installation of the OS disc. All the necessary drivers, tools and utilities that you can download at Toshiba page under for assistance

    If you have any other questions please let us know.

    Bye and good luck.

  • Satellite L30: Vista problems with pages minimizing

  • Satellite A205-SP5820 - problem with microphones


    I have a Toshiba Satellite A205-SP5820, and it's been almost two months that my microphone stopped working (external & the built). Today, I installed three different drivers (the one downloaded from softonic, one page Web from Toshiba and the other from Realtek)
    They still do not work.

    What can I do?
    Thank you.

    That really strange, you have this problem with the internal and external microphone.
    The configuration of the laptop is not known to me, but if you have tried the mixture of different drivers I don't think it is unique to the pre-installed driver.

    I think that best option for you will be clean OS installation but using the Toshiba recovery image you have with your laptop. Toshiba recovery image contains fine work and drivers tested so if the problem will still be there, it can be hardware only question about.

    Clean OS installation option is right for you?

  • Satellite C660D - a problem with the cooling system has been detected

    My laptop is a * Toshiba Satellite C660D-11th * and I have a message that keeps coming up every once in a while 'alert system' head and reads as follows: "WARNING: a problem with the cooling system has been detected." (Next line) Please, turn off computer immediately and return it for service. »

    I had this warning for the coming weeks and it tolerated, but it worsened and annoyed me for the last time. I can hear the fan and the computer is not over heating (the CPUCool freeware tool detects a 51º CPU temprature C). No further questions arise as the computer slows down, it is right in the path of what I do, like typing right now.

    I tried to solve the problem by changing the "Power Options" in the control panel of Windows 7 'High Performance', and then selected under the 'battery' both 'Sector' columns, 'Never' for the parameter "put the computer to sleep. It seems to work, and no error message has occurred since then. However, this is not a solution...

    Please help quickly, this prevents me from working and even other things now.

    Thank you


    Usually, this message would appear if something is not wrong with the cooling system. But I read here in the forum that maybe it's a bug of software and after new system recovery this message should no longer appear.

    But if you notice some upper temperature or abnormal noises, then I recommend to check this with a service technician

  • Satellite C40D-C - problems with the system

    I recently bought an a toshiba satellite C40D-C Series notebook PC as my old satellite - essentially - is dying. After you connect to the internet, I tried to download AVG Antivirus on my computer that I don't have - and never - trust McAfee anti-virus that comes with the computer. Every time downloaded AVG then restart my computer, the computer goes directly into the automatic repair system and doesn't let me do anything but to reset or restore. This has happened even with completely removed McAfee. I've been on AVG directly today (January 15), and they have to do remote set-up for me - with the same results. Yes, I'm aware that McAfee is a selfish cry of a system and refuses to acknowledge any other antivirus, but that this issue happens even with completely removed McAfee shows clearly that it is something that Toshiba has worked in the system. I can't even disable the automatic repair tool. I have to be stuck with a McAfee antivirus which, moreover, does not yet or is Toshiba will make an effort to help solve a problem they caused?

    Why this computer isn't allowing AVG Antivirus work? And why, after each attempt to download AVG, the computer goes to auto repair whenever I shut down or restart? Is this a problem with the system or something, Toshiba has done on purpose?

  • Satellite P100-347 - problem with the judgment during the game

    I have a problem with my (pspa6e) Satellite P100-347

    After about 10 minutes of play time with games like battlefield 2, the SIMS2 and so on... my pc stops...
    I knew it was close because of high gpu or cpu temp...

    I felt that my laptop was warm, but after playing for a while its normal...

    So I installed HWmonitor to check my gpu, CPU and disk hard temp...

    That's what I show:

    THRM: 61.C - 141.F

    CPU: core0\1 - two 64.C - 147.F

    GPU: turn 85 stable - 90.C
    This normal use... no games...

    HARD DRIVE: 39.C

    Something must be wrong! GPU temp is too high?
    I tried a fresh install of the OS...

    Thnx for all the help and answers!

    Hmm these times can be a little high.

    Most likely there is dust in the radiator. You can use compressed air to remove it. Or as a miracle solution, blow into the vents dust closes in contrast to air circulation.

  • Satellite M70-239 - problems with brightness adjustment


    I ve got this laptop from my father after I buyed a new. Actually everything´s with him very well. But one thing is a little strange, I think.
    My old laptop and other portable that I had before, has the ability to control things like the brightness of the screen when you connect to load automatically. So not for this one. Nothing happens.

    Windows doesn´t also shows the remaining battery life expectancy and other things like that. These functions are not supported by this guy? I ve installed the latest bios version 1.70, which is available on the official website and I m using Windows XP.

    Someone at - it the same problem and is there a solution for this? Maybe you can help me.

    welcome them


    Satellite M70 was delivered with Windows XP edition family, and Windows XP Home typical configuration. I imagine that you have installed all Toshiba tools and utilities, so it must there also have preinstalled Toshiba Power saver.

    He yiou can see profiles of different powers and each of them can be configured separately. Thus, when the laptop is connected to power notebook AC power will be the mode full power. There you can set LCD brightness to the maximum level.
    When the laptop is on battery will then serve others power plan. Compare the settings in two power modes and choose your preferred settings.

    Brightness level can also be changed with the key FN + F6/F7 combination.
    Of course, this will works if all Toshiba tools and utilities are preinstalled.
