Satellite L40-139: new graphics driver is causing the problem after waking from sleep

I have a three month old Toshiba Satellite L40-139 (PSL40E) with 1 GB of RAM with Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium pre-installed. This laptop worked very well for me for the basic headquarters far tasks, and I would have no problem recommending.

In the last days I've updated the software and drivers from the Microsoft Update web site.

Since the update driver Mobile Intel(r) 945 Express Chipset Family (to version, dated October 18, 2007), the screen resolution at 800 x 600 after awakening from the sleep state. The only way I found to fix it is to restart the PC.

Other articles published on the web, I understand that this particular driver (Mobile Intel(r) 945 Express Chipset Family driver version) has caused many other problems on a variety of hardware and software platforms.

Does anyone have a definitive solution for Satellite L40?

I looked at four options.

1. let the new installed driver and restart Windows each time after waking up from sleep mode. Rather, I must not do this.

2. using the Restore Point created by Windows Update before the update of the driver, roll back to an earlier time. This seems to be a good course if it works.

3 download an older version of the driver and reinstall it. I don't know which version would work but note that others have had success with the version. I guess a similar version could be included in the driver Package that can be downloaded from Toshiba Europe site, but have heard that the time required to download this software can exceed ten hours and am therefore reluctant to try.

4. the fourth option is not really possible. I should be able to "Roll-Back" the driver in Device Manager, but the button is disabled.

Although only a minor problem, it is very irritating and I would like to address them without causing other problems. Does anyone else have this problem? Someone has fixed it successfully?


Hello Peter

If I understand correctly, you use your usual laptop for daily work and you don't need any computer high-performance notebook. If I'm right I have to say that you should be happy if the laptop works well and stable.

I don't really see any reason why you wanted to update chipset driver. In any case, you should try to roll back the BONES of time earlier and I hope everything will work again. There is absolutely no risk, and you can test it.

Please post the result.

  • Satellite P300 - white screen after waking from sleep state

    I'm having this problem:
    The LCD screen may be empty when the computer is "awakened" from the sleep state. Nothing is visible on the internal LCD or an external monitor.

    There seems to be a solution:
    An update of the firmware for a component in the main circuit of the computer solves this problem. This update must be performed by an authorized Toshiba (ASP) Service provider. Until arrangements are made for the update, restart the computer by pressing the power on button for a few seconds.

    If you check the Toshiba document you would see that your Satellite P300 is not related to this issue.

    In your case I would recommend upgrading the BIOS and graphics driver.
    In addition to keep your operating system up-to-date.

    I had this problem under Win XP and a MS patch and an update of the graphics card driver helped solve this problem.

  • Satellite T110 - Defective Bluetooth after waking from sleep

    SATELLITE T110 Bluetooth will fail after awakening from sleep.
    The icon will be flick between white and green as he seeks my device (phone).

    I ve reduced the problem to the laptop, because if I try to pair again phone to the laptop it fails. It's almost like he has a block?

    Operate as planned, then I have to charge fully.
    Bluetooth connects then as planned.

    It only became a problem because I installed the latest BIOS v 2.40
    I use the 64-bit Version.

    When the problem occurs I run the Bluetooth Diagnostics and it comes back as fine no error reported. It s a pain now because I use the laptop mode "sleep" more off.

    This is due to the new update of the bios.

    Can you after waking from sleep just restart BT stack and try to connect to the mobile phone?
    You mean that with the old version of the BIOS, everything was OK?

    Last question: what was the reason for the update of the BIOS? I hope not the fact you want to have the latest version.

    In addition, it can help to look at the files minidump against accidents with a debugger.

    Can you zip the minidump in the C:\Windows\Minidump folder files and (provide link) available via Windows Live SkyDrive or similar site?

    The following link has information about the use of Windows Live SkyDrive:

    If you have problems to compress the minidump files copy the minidump files to another location such as a folder on the desktop

    In addition, you do not necessarily have compress the minidump files, you can download one at a time.

    Thank you


    Generally, you can install the drivers Toshiba not only at your own risk.
    So if something will go wrong because of drivers Toshiba not then your warranty does not cover this.
    So this was a brief info about drivers not Toshiba.

    Now how do I install the driver;
    You can do so from the Device Manager. Go to the Device Manager. Choose the graphics card and to update the driver. Then a new window should open. Then, choose the Advanced installation procedure. Then choose don't search. I will choose the driver. Then point to the new Intel driver downloaded and applied.

  • Satellite P750/05q - new graphics driver update?

    I have a Toshiba Satellite P750/05q with a Nvidia GT540M graphics card.

    Toshiba drivers are quite old compared to the generic drivers from Nvidia, but I read that I should only use the Toshiba drivers.

    So Toshiba never updates its graphics drivers, or am I stuck with the same driver for the life of the computer?

    This common problem of s with portable machines. Manufacturers of portable don t offer display drivers updated. All this is quite complicated because of the design of laptops and cooling system.

  • Satellite Pro M30: new HARD drive - what is the max capacity?


    My Toshiba Satellite Pro M30 is 4 years old with a 60 GB hard drive (IDE).
    I would like to replace the hard drive with a bigger. What is the best? (BIOS version 1.70, Windows XP Pro SP 3).

    I would be happy not only to get the answer to my question but alos to where I might find the answer myself.

    Thanks and greetings


    As far as I know the laptop is equipped with an ATA-100 IDE / ATA-6 HARD drive controller.
    In this case, you will need to use the 2.5 IDE HARD drive.

    I know with certainty that this notebook would support 80 GB HDD, but generally a larger HARD drive should also be possible because the controller is able to manage the 48-bit LBA.
    The 48-bit LBA can handle hard drives of more than 120GB.

    In my opinion, you can try a 120 GB and also 160 GB HARD drive should be possible.

No mass reader, mouse, iPod is detected - even the SD for ready boost is not detected. Simple plug in and out calls any action (window AutoPlay etc.).

  • What card Firewire works with Satellite L40-139?

    I have Satellite L40-139 under Vista Home Premium.
    The laptop doesn't have a Firewire interface. He has a 54mm Express card slot. I would like to add a Firewire interface, so I can import video from a camcorder. If I understand correctly, it should be possible to install an Express card (34mm or 54mm will fit) which will provide the Firewire inputs.

    Although there are a lot of these cards on the market, there are also many stories of them does not not with Vista or some Toshiba laptops.

    Can someone advise please a card that is known to work with the L-series and with Vista?

    Thank you in advance.

    This is right.
    Satellite L40-139 supports ExpressCard location and so you can use an Express which has been equipped with a firewire interface card.

    You should google a bit, there are a lot of offers on the internet

  • Satellite L40-139 - need driver Windows XP Home edition for 'ethernet '.

    Please can you send me the link to Satellite L40 ethernet control model of laptop for Windows XP Home edition?


    Satellite L40-139 belongs to the PSL40E series. Am I wrong?
    You can check the serial number of your laptop. It should be placed somewhere at the bottom of the unit. Check all labels.

    Anyway, the Toshiba driver European page doesn't provide XP drivers for this series at this time. Seems you have to wait a bit until all pilots to be released!

    For the only moment that two versions of the BIOS for L40 PSL40E if released.
    The BIOS must be updated to the XP version, if you want to use XP on this laptop.

    By the way; It seems that this series is supported by the Base map - TX Ethernet Realtek 10/100.
    Then you can try the LAN driver from the site Web of Realtek. Should also work.
