Satellite L40 - 14H - mainboard or the video card


I have a problem with my laptop (Satellite L4014H). He was broken twice.

Initially, he broken then I worked with 3Ds max and has begun to make, and after that this support for the service has changed my motherboard.

After a few months, then I installed again 3Ds max, he beat again (the same problem).
I assumed that my video card is not good at it, and maybe the video card is seriously overheat and die.

What should I do? Maybe sell it and buy a new one?

Thank you




The graphics card in your laptop is not really good for 3D applications. I think that's the problem but contact the manufacture from 3Ds max and ask if the compatible graphics card from your laptop.

You can try to make a graphic driver update. Search on the Toshiba site for an update:

Good bye

  • Satellite L40 - 139 - after watching the video, I can't use the virtual scrolling


    I own a Toshiba Satellite L40-139 under Windows Vista 32-bit. However, I think that this problem only applies to this model as other users are experiencing the same thing.

    I often watch videos online mode full screen (like on YouTube), but when I leave full-screen mode, I noticed that virtual scrolling stops working on the touchpad. This occurs in the latest versions of Internet Explorer and Firefox. I can still move the pointer, but cannot scroll. I also note that the icon in the taskbar freezes, because it does not meet all the movements on the touchpad. I have the latest version of the driver installed (

  • Satellite 5100/201: problem with the video card or overheating?


    I have problems with video on a 5100/201 Satellite. It seems that when I press the left side above the graphics card or press a key on the keyboard on this side, the screen begins to be scrambled and vertical lines appear. To end Windows XP resets giving a critical error on the device and the video goes to 640 x 480. Same thing happens when you run Linux Suse 9.0.

    My question is what is the cause: map graphic damaged or overheating due to the fan not as effective as originally (my laptop is nearly two years old. Do you have someone be able to find the cause and solved the problem, also with the assistance of Toshiba?
    Any help welcome.


    I think the problem on your laptop depends on the fan.

    A colleague on mine has a 5100-603 and had similar problems.

    The Station changed the fan.

  • Can I replace the video card Intel (r) 915GM/GMS in Satellite M70?


    I have a TOSHIBA Satellite M70, with video card Intel (r) 915GM/GMS (256 MB) that is not working properly (it might be made of the mechanical shock or high temperature, do not know, but I'm sure it's something on the hardware). I reinstalled my OS (and then replaced by another), updated my drivers but nothing changes. Then appears a BSOD evoking the video driver files I try to restart it many times because the screen guard shutted down (in black). Now, the video card is disabled, and it works normally. I want to just replace it if it is possiblle. I said * TOSHIBA Satellite M70, Intel (r) 915GM / GMS *.

    Thanks for your answers in advance, and sorry for the mistakes (I'm not English)!

    Good evening!

    Not available ACPI\TOS6205\4 & 4A257CF & 0 the drivers for this device are not installed.

    Type available, compatible adapter (Standard display types)
    Description Standard VGA Graphics Adapter adapt

    Would appreciate any help on this.
    Thank you in advance.

  • Satellite T130 - how to allocate memory on the video card?

    Hi all

    You just bought a T130 has 4 GB of ram.
    I would attribute this to the video card.

    How can I do this, I do not see it in the BIOS, normally there is a setting to change AGP aperture but I can't.

    Does anyone know how to do this?


    This setting is controlled by the driver of the software or the hardware itself and it cannot be changed. However, you really don't need to worry; If more RAM is required (almost always because of the game) it it will get to the need.

  • Upgrade the video card on Satellite X 200-20 g

    Hello everyone

    I'll find a way to have my 8700M GT updated on my X 200 laptop.
    I paid for it more than 2000 and I paid for 2 years warranty.
    A few months later, I discovered that some of the new Toshiba are equipped with 9700 m GTS!

    I know that the X 200-20 G is having a mxm graphics card which is removable to be upgraded (not being is not part of the motherboard).

    I couldn't find anywhere in the Toshiba site, where I can ask to buy a new graphics card, or if I can send my laptop and ask for an upgrade price.
    I suppose someone who has paid a sum of money for Toshiba can be listened to, or get a special offer to swap its model to the newest one after even not a year of use.

    I really want to upgrade the video card, and I don't really know where to find advice or information about it, other than on the side of Toshiba.

    Thanks to everyone or admin, to let me know how I should do, or process.

    Kind regards

  • Satellite Pro A10: Question about upgrading video card

    Hi guys, I have a laptop Satellite Pro A10 and I was wondering if anyone of you could help me.

    I want to improve my Ram card memory and video. The video card now is an Intel 82852/82855 GM/GME Graphics Controller and want a graphics card with at least 128 MB of memory on this subject.
    Any recommendation?
    Any help would be appreciated muchly.


    It of not possible to change the graphics card. The graphics card is a small chip that attaches to the motherboard.
    This graphics card supports up to 64 MB shared memory. The graphics card gets this value of main memory if it s needed.

    The possibility to upgrade the memory of this device is something different.
    You can upgrade the memory to max 1024 MB (2x512MB) and these modules should work.
    PC2100 128 MB (PA3126U - 1 M 12)
    PC2100 256 MB (PA3127U - 1 M 25)
    PC2100 512 MB (PA3164U - 1 M 51)

    Thank you

    Hi Galin,

    It is generally not possible to update the graphics card in a notebook. They are generally adapted to fit the available space and also specially designed drivers that are specific to your model of laptop. It is also quite common for them to use the RAM shared rather than having their own chip RAM (although some later model specifications have dedicated for graphics RAM).

    You can check in your advanced (from Control Panel) display options if you can adjust the RAM available for your graphics card.
