Satellite L20 182 crashes when capturing DV video

Hi, I have a problem - my L20 freezes and has to be rebooted when I try to capture DV video in Premiere Pro 2.0 (but also in other programs). What should I do?

BIOS version - V1.70
Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition 5.1.2600 Service Pack 2
ATI RADEON XPRESS 200 M Series worm =
Conexant AC - Link Audio worm =


I studied a little more on the European database FAQ Toshiba and found this document useful:

Running Adobe Premiere Elements 2.0 laptop freeze or crash

It seems that the Realtek High Definition Audio driver might be responsible for these issues.
I would recommend following the instructions in the document Toshiba

  • Question about new BIOS on Satellite L20 182

    HI :)

    I have a question: can I install new BIOS 2.20 on my Satellite L20 182 model No. PSL2XE?
    If I can't, why PSL2X users do this? Are there differences in the two models?

    Hello and sorry for my English - I'n not the best :)


    just for explanation: the bios you mentioned is good the machine bios. Toshiba is not writing the complete model number since there is a range of numbers of the same model, Don t so you need not worry, they are not different. Maybe the last digit, but it is not important to you.
    Why am I knowing this? Because many manufacturers are doing this and I've been several times confused when updating the BIOS from another manufacturer...

  • Satellite L20-182: after installing the OS only USB 1.1 not 2.0

    Hello, I am an owner of the model Toshiba Satellite L20-182.
    Recently I did a format disk and installed Windows XP Professional with Service Pack 2.

    Unfortunately, the system detects USB as a version 1.1.
    I find anywhere USB 2.0 drivers.

    Could you help me?


    Why suggest that you have only the USB 1.1 and USB 2.0?

    To my knowledge you will not find any special USB Toshiba drivers Toshiba page.
    Each unit of Toshiba uses the current Microsoft Windows USB drivers and it s not necessary to install the special USB drivers.

    I assume that you have installed the operating system from the original CD of Microsoft and not the Toshiba back CD. Am I wrong?
    In this case you must install all Toshiba drivers that are available in the right order. The chipset utility is very important! Generally, the chipset must be installed at the first stage.

    Please also check this Microsoft documents:

    Availability of the updated Windows XP SP1 USB 1.1 and 2.0

    When you install Windows XP Service Pack 2, the USB 2.0 drivers do not appear to be updated

  • Satellite L20-182: is it possible to upgrade processor?

    Hello. I have a Toshiba Satellite L20 - 182 and I want to change the CPU.
    My CPU is the Celeron M 380 (1.6 Ghz), and I want to install Pentium M.
    Can I do it?
    If I can, can what Pentium M I install on my motherboard?
    Please answer me.

    Sebastian K., from the Poland


    Well, in general it of not possible to upgrade the processor.
    Some processors are fixed mounted on the motherboard.
    In addition, the processors used in laptops are connected to the motherboard using a process called TCP (tape carrier package). It is a permanent connection method and is used in the interest of miniaturization and heat dissipation

    Just for info:
    I found some Satellite L20 units which are supplied with different processors.
    For example:
    Satellite L20-204 Intel-Pentium-M (Dothan) 750 1.86GHz
    Satellite L20-214 Intel-Pentium-M (Dothan) 740 1.73GHz
    Satellite L20-300 Intel-Celeron-M (Dothan) 370 1.5GHz

  • Satellite P200 - system crashes when left alone for a short period of time.


    I have a Toshiba Satellite P200 PSPB6A - 17804M crashes when I haven't touched the keyboard or the mouse, for a period of time.

    The o/s is the version of Windows Vista Ultimate 32 Bit and specifications for the model are as link. But with a 128 MB ATI HD2600 video.

    Link: [link to the same laptop model: 0127] IMSfp = TL090127161001r18426]

    I have updated all the updates Toshiba including the 2.50 bios update.

    When left alone for s short period of time, my system crashes, although my mouse moves again. Click anywhere on the screen or by using the keyboard does not seem to get back to work. The only way I can then use my laptop is to do a hard reboot by holding the button power for 5 seconds.

    My system seems to work very well as long as I don't stop using the mouse or the keyboard.
    The time between when I finally used the computer and when it hangs can range from 5 minutes to 10 hours.

    I disabled all the parameters of energy saving, including the video recording without success.

    Can someone help me with this problem?

    Thank you Batty.

    I think that Windows may need wiping and re - install, its seems to do it when I'm trying to do too much multitasking, one had the same problem or can offer advice please?

    Thanks David

    I m confused about your message.
    When the laptop stick? Only when the AC adapter is connected or also when running on battery?

    Since this is not clear to me if it's a software or a hardware related issue, I recommend you test the laptop using factory settings. I mean that you should retrieve the laptop to factory state using the recovery disk.

    Run a few tests and post comments.

  • Satellite L20: How can I reduce the video memory?

    I bought a L20 today with 256 MB of memory, video is set at 128 MB, can someone tell me how I can reduce this, I tried in the bios but the only option is 128 MB, the laptop is quite slow. I'll have more memory when I can, but for now if I can fix this it should help a little.

    Thank you


    What the name of your laptop - Satellite L20 - xxx?
    And what graphics card did you use? Intel or ATI?

    But I do not understand why you want to decrease the memory.
    If the graphics card memory so it will take the main memory.
    But if the graphics card does not need additional memory so it will not share.
    It all depends on the applications that are running on the operating system.

  • Satellite L350-212 crashes when it's on battery only

    Satellite L 350-212 bought in June 09 all at once crashes when it's on battery only.
    It started to happen after being OK for once.

    The battery such recommended procedures have been followed.
    Is it a bad battery or what? I need to replace?
    Or did I miss something in the configuration of the computer?


    Eventually he would launch a battery
    Did you notice that the battery is empty while the accident occurred?

    If so, try to calibrate the battery again
    The battery must be unloaded until it is completely empty and then load it again
    Repeat this procedure twice and then test the functionality of s for laptop.

    If that does not help, then you should test a new battery.

  • Satellite L20-182: fan is not working properly - intervals of one minute

    When I turn on the computer about 20 minutes is quiet. The fan starts like a hurricane, slows down and stops. It lasts a few seconds. The fan works this way on a regular basis with intervals of one minute.
    Is it possible to turn the fan on a continuous work in slow motion?

    Hi Dominika

    I put t believe that your laptop can be so dusty in a few months and believe me there everything is ok. I know that cooling fan noise is sometimes annoying, but unfortunately there is not much to do.

    I'll be honest to you. Satellite L20 is low budget and the unit is configured very simply. For most Toshiba units, it has preinstalled Toshiba intelligence tool and it is possible to change the method of cooling. On your device, it is not possible.

  • Re: Satellite L20-155 crashes randomly


    You have a strange problem with the Satellite L20-155, about three years.

    During use, it just hangs. The mouse is not responding. No error message in the event log, using windows XP Professional Ed. Screen is frozen.

    I have seems to happen randomly. Sometimes after 5 minutes, sometimes 10. Sometimes, it crashes then on the XP Welcome screen. \

    Open the folder to see if there was a lot of dust in the fan to avoid a temperature problem. This was not the case. The fan was clean and properly in the course of execution.

    Tried to start the pc in safe mode. Because in safe mode I don't seem to have problems, I decided to reinstall XP everywhere because I thought he might have had a software problem, but during the installation, the PC crashes also. Everything freezes. No response what so ever. He tried twice. In the copy of the files, the PC crashes.

    Has someone experienced similar problems?
    This sounds like a hard drive problem?

    I would like to know suddenly course where I have buy a new hard drive.

    Thank you

    Kind regards



    I agree with Abe. I had a similar problem with my old Satellite phone. I did HDD test and discovered that there were many defective sectors.

    Computer laptop start works well, but after a while I noticed the same symptoms as you. If possible, try to get the new HARD drive, Exchange and I am 100% sure that everything will be OK again.

  • Graphics card Radeon laptop on platform Windows 8 crashes when you watch videos in Firefox. Problem does not replicate on other browsers. Is there a solution?

    I have a 4540 of Hp ProBook with a Radeon 7 x chip video integrated of series, platform Windows 8.1. When I watch videos with the browser Firefox video adapter fails and the computer sometimes freezes. If I watch videos with another browser I don't have a problem. I went to HP and have downloaded the latest drivers from AMD but still no will. So far, the only solution is to not use Firefox when watching video clips. In short, I don't know what direction to go, and since the problem seems to be specific with Firefox, I thought I would draw your attention to the problem.

    Some additional info... If I bypass the Radeon chip, i.e. use the alternate Intel video chip, I don't have a problem. It said the native PC with Windows 7 pro with the upgrade software and the key of Windows 8. In any case when 7 was installed there where no problems with the playback of videos in Firefox. Installing Windows 8 was installed a clean place, not an upgrade...

  • Replacing screen on Satellite L20 182

    My monitor satellite L20-128 is broken, so I need to replace it with a new one, I get the same. I mean with the same number (LQ150X1LHS2 / B 5XD24863), or there are other choices?


    Generally, you should always buy the parts recommended by the manufacturer of the laptop!
    Then you could be 100% sure that the part (display) is right.

    To my knowledge, the laptop uses a 15.0 "1024 x 768 TFT screen.
    It is important that you buy the same size 15.
    The resolution is not very import.
    I m sure that the graphic card supports a higher resolution than 1024 x 768 and if you go to buy a screen that supports a higher resolution, you will be able to define the display on a higher resolution.
