    I have a toshiba satellite L40 - 15 G with windows 7 32 bit and my wireless is not working, the pilot is OK
    I do FN + F8 and I can't active wireless :(

    What should I do more?


    The Fn + F8 isn't really essential to use the WiFi network. Generally, the WiFi network should be enabled by default.
    So even if the Fn + F8 does not work, the WiFi network must be enabled.
    You see the local network card in Device Manager? Is it correctly recognized?

    Where he is, follow these steps:
    Go to the control panel (switch to the large or small icon view)-> network & sharing Center-> left column manage wireless networks
    Add here new WLan and configure it by using the right SSID, encryption and password encryption.

    Who can help me, please!

    Hi kenny_21,

    If you have a new WLAN router you must change the configuration that I think

    The new router is visible under WLAN connections and can connect?

    If so try to connect. The standard router password can be found in the manual of it and no doubt, there will be new addresses MAC first before connect you. I put t know the exact configuration.

    Also check the options the WIRELESS card with TCP/IP. Usually, you need automatic IP addresses.

  • Satellite L40 - 18W - Touchpad does not work

    Hey guys...

    I have Toshiba Satellite L40 - 18W, bought in the Middle East, and unfortunately its touchpad does not work... I checked and double checked all the possible places, so anything that is disabled or misconfigured but found nothing.

    As there are quite a few errors in the operating system I formatted my hard drive and install WXP Prof, installed all the drivers, but the touchpad is not always works. I'm very confused as before and after formatting the pointer moves a little when I use the touch pad at the beginning of the UPA start? ¦

    Help, please...

    The best audit is to install the operating system with the original Toshiba recovery image and test it with the factory settings. In this case touchpad should work fine. Otherwise, contact the service and leave check your laptop.

    Sorry, but I don't see another solution for you.

    You need to remove the upper and lower registry filters.
    But before doing so, please remove the CD/DVD drive in Device Manager.

    Then start the registry (regedit) and then remove the filters above and below this key:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Class\ {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

    Then restart the laptop

    Now, he opens the e: / make me view the folders inside.

    Device Manager indicates that the CD-ROM/DVD-rom works normally.

  • Satellite U200: DVD - ROM does not work correctly

    DVD - ROM not working. After the fire of two optical drive DVD - RW, loss of ability to burn and can read only CD with difficulties of the sum. It is not possible to recovery operating system.

    Look like lost laser precise positioning device and can no longer read high-density data on DVD, but on the sum of CD singing can be found with difficulty.

    Your description sounds like a reader lens problem.
    Probably the lens can not calibrate in the right position, and that's why the drive can't handle DVD media.

    Bad news buddy this problem is not repairable with updates. Above all it s a hardware problem and the drive should be replaced!

    I would recommend contact the ASP which is responsible for you country to organise a replacement.

    Good bye

    The solution is very easy! remove the upper and lower filter registry ;)!

  • Satellite P25-S520 - DVD player does not work properly

    Difficulty of DVD player or buy the external drive

    My DVD player does not work properly, in fact it can never work properly. Recently, I tried to back up my PC on a DVD using Norton 360. Norton did not recognize that the DVD was present. Then I tried to write a text file on a DVD and was a failure. DVD + R and DVD-R media were found to be (Maxwell 16 X).

    I could have probably lived with this however, I received a copy of Dragon NaturallySpeaking version 10 on a CD and my Toshiba would not recognize it. I tried the CD in my laptop nearby and it was recognized.

    An attempt to update the driver has also fails.

    I was able to copy a CD of music last night so that at least works properly.

    Does anyone know how can I fix? The important part is to be able to load my new program.

    Research on some forums I found that other people have had problems with the Pioneer drive. If the drive can't be fixed, I'm not adverse to buying an external DVD drive. Unfortunately, where I live there is no brick and mortar stores selling external drives and I prefer to avoid the hassle of getting a drive online and discovering that it does not work with my Toshiba. Can someone suggest an external USB drive that will read and write CD and DVD and is certain to be compatible with my Toshiba?

    Thanks for any help,

    Satellite P25-S520
    Driver provider: Microsoft
    Driver date: 01/07/2001
    Driver version: 5.1.2535.0
    Digital signer: Microsoft Windows Publisher

    Any external USB CD/DVD drive will be compatible with your laptop.

    However, you won't be able to boot from CD (run recovery for example) If you are using an external drive.

    So, your best option would be to replace the internal drive with a Toshiba drive designed for the laptop. Call an ASP and request a quote.
