Satellite L500 - can not turn on the new wireless network card

I have little problem with client model T. Satellite l500-1ek. I change orginal at BCM94321MC wifi wifi card mini pci card (rev 6). Card works well - everything is ok - driver installed ok.
But I can not turn on wifi with FN + f8 key - Windows.

This isn't a software issue - this button should work before starting any kind of system, but do not work. I tried everything, including the update of the BIOS. Card works correctly, but can not turn on wifi: (.)
Can anyone provide another solution than to change the map?

I have reinstaled value-added package and Flash utility support card - fn Panel works but buton f8 disappeared.
I tested with another card from mnipcie and have same problem - can not turn on wifi - fn + f8 does not work

Hi Ipcur,

Why you traded with another wireless network card model?

He works with the wireless network card preinstalled Toshiba?

  • Satellite A210 - 27 M (PSAELE) cannot use the new wireless network card

    Hi all

    I changed my wi - fi for Atheros AR5b91 and hardware network card is locked.
    I can't remove this lock of wi - fi switch or fn + F8 probably it's the lock of the bios.

    I tried to unlock it on Windows Vista, Windows 7, Ubuntu, so it is not caused by software.
    I tried the card WiFi on another laptop (toshiba not) and it's ok.

    If anyone can help?

    Thank you


    To me, it seems that you used is not compatible Wlan module.
    But I found this thread:

    A user was unable to activate new update Intel Wlan card.
    According to some information, its possible to enable the Wlan card by covering pin 13 on the wireless Mini-PCI network card.
    But to be honest I've ever tried and I would use this workaround with caution.

  • Satellite Pro A300D-152 - can not turn on the S-VHS output

    After I installed Windows 7 (32 bit), I can't turn on the S-VHS output (TV).

    Any solution?

    Hi Longhorn_1,

    First of all, you should check if the display driver is installed correctly. This means that in Device Manager it should t be any yellow exclamation point.
    New drivers, you can download from the official page of Toshiba.

    In addition, you use output S-video if you press the FN + F5 key combination.
    Generally you must connect the S-video cable first, before turning on TV/laptop. After that turn on your TV and select the S-video port and then turn on the laptop. FN + F5 key combination to switch between monitors.

  • I can not turn off the microphone on Satellite p100-194

    No matter what I do, I can't turn off the microphone of shit, he's always watching on my speakers, I have all the right settings in the sound control panel... believe me!

    Does anyone know how to disable the security...

    * monitor on my speakers even when I uninstalled all the sounddrivers! ... * it seems to be a bios problem... HEEEEELP!

    is there perhaps a bios fix?... or no solution at all on this model, I use win 7 32 bit...

    Hi leon-k,.

    Usually, you can cut the speakers in the Windows sound settings. Go to control panel > hardware and sound > sound.

    Now, choose the recording tab as Akuma written and click Properties > listen. On this tab, you can change the volume and disable the microphone set.

  • Cannot connect C4780 to the new wireless network

    I have a HP C4780 printer. We moved recently and I am trying to install on / connect to our new wireless network (new SSID). I have Verizon FiOS, but seems not support WPS configuration connection.

    I don't have the CD that came with the printer.

    When I connect to my iMac via USB, the printer connects automatically.

    What I don't know is how to connect wireless - where to enter the SSID / WPA-2, etc.

    I tried dozens of paths of online help - I thought I had SOME clues of what I was doing, but apparently not.

    Y at - there anyone who can help?

    Thank you


    Hi mbwiles,

    I watched Cougar and found that it is Mac OS X 10.8.  The driver for 10.8 is not available for download from HP that you saw.   A Windows laptop would try to get the printer on the network and then the Mac could see.  Of course a Mac laptop with an earlier version would also work as long as the driver is available for download.

  • Can not turn on the Satellite M30

    Hello everyone...

    I have a Satellite M30 laptop for time enough and I'm having a problem with it. When I try to turn it on, it makes a kind of scratch noise and then nothing happens. The hard drive lit wrath but the computer does no sound and no picture on the screen. I tried to turn it on with and without the battery and the same thing happens.

    A few days before this happened that I could see the windows startup screen, after that the computer crashed, even when I went to the BIOS Setup screen, the computer also crashed, so the problem was not on the hard disk. A few days later, when I tried to turn it back on, it makes a single probe and nothing else happened. Can it be a motherboard problem? can I try before sending it for repair

    I'm scared of m it s a serious problem.
    Depending on the symptoms that you described the laptop cannot get the message and so I think there may be an error on the motherboard.
    I don t think you will be able to locate the fault. It is simply not possible for the common user like you and me

    If you have no choice as to the request of the service provider for Toshiba for help.

  • Can not turn on the Satellite A60

    I got the Satellite A60 for a long time. The battery is almost dead so I decided to use the AC power adapter to power the computer. When I try to turn it on it Star and stops in a few seconds. He looks dead, even if dc indicator is green and the battery light is orange. I tried to make it work without the battery, but it does the same thing. Sometimes with a lot of patience it lights, but I really don't know what I did different.
    Can someone please tell me what is this problem and how to solve?

    Thank you very much.


    I think that the battery LED appears orange because the AC adapter is plugged in and the battery charges.
    So, I can't give you a good answer why the laptop cannot start correctly, but one thing is very interesting.
    No passes for laptop, the start screen of Toshiba which appears at the beginning?

    If it is so perhaps there is a hardware failure and the laptop must be verified by ordinary service partner or a technician with experience more as a user like you and me.

    But if the laptop can correctly pass the Toshiba start screen so in my view the files on the HARD drive are corrupt or the HARD disk contains bad sectors.

    In this case, the only way to solve such a problem is the new reinstallation of the operating system.
    I think you should try to boot from the recovery CD Toshiba.

  • Satellite L - he can not turn on the installation of the driver


    I bought new laptop having problems:

    Sometimes when I turn on it just flash light and stop again. I have to press the power button, then it boots. I don't know why and any solution for this so my dosent seller accepts if I return to him.
    Does that create major problems in the future if I do not have difficulty?

    Whenever I turn on the pc all the sudden voiceguard #252 device of mini port driver automatically installs and after that it is showing the message that voiceguard mini engine port # 252 was not properly installed. I don't know what is the reason. Can someone help me solve this problem?
    Whenever it is showing the same thing when I turn on my laptop.

    Hi samir,.

    To be honest it is really hard to say something about it because you didn t post important information about your laptop model and the operating system

    Regarding your first problem: it happens when the power adapter is connected or only with the battery?

    On the second problem I m of ideas, but it would be important to know what OS you are using.

  • Satellite L500 - can not find the drivers for the keys FN for Windows XP!


    I found and installed all the drivers I need for this laptop using Windows XP. My problem is that I can only activate wireless on this laptop in pushin' FN + F8 key, I installed the Realtek Wireless drivers and they are installed correctly, but I can't get wireless to work because of the FN keys. When I press the FN + F8 key, a blue led should light up next to the volume control, but it is not...

    I searched the Hotkey Utility on Toshiba India site, I downloaded and tried, but I get the error 'this utility program does not support this system', the common Modules gives me the same error too.

    I tried to install the other Hotkey Utility driver for another laptop and it does not give me this error, but it does not work either... I actually let my laptop freeze a second, every 5 seconds... and the FN keys still don't work.

    Anyone know where I can find a Hotkey Utility work for my laptop XP?

    Or maybe is there a way to activate wireless without the FN keys? I don't need the other keys... I want just a way to activate wireless.

    Thanks for your time

  • Satellite L500 will not load beyond the screen "Welcome".


    My Toshiba Satellite L500 laptop will not load beyond the screen "Welcome". The right slider thing keeps going around and around, but won't on my desk.

    Last night, he went into a temporary profile and he got a message saying "another profile cannot load at this time please try again later".

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you

    The error message is not known to me and also looking in google didn t get advice.
    Maybe your Windows operating system is confusing upward.

    Have you tried to boot Win 7 in safe mode?
    Try this. Restart your laptop, press the F8 key.
    In advanced startup options, select the option called Mode without failure.

    If the laptop does not start Safe Mode, try the last good known Configuration option.

    If this n t help, try to fix my computer. Here, you can choose between different settings.
    Who could solve that problem is HARD drive recovery that helps you define the notebook to factory settings. But it also means that your disk should be formatted!

    So be aware of this!

  • Satellite L500-128 using recovery on the new (larger) HARD drive discs

    Hi all

    I have a Toshiba L500-128, the original 320 GB hard drive is just too small and I would like to avoid buying an external hard drive (for backup purposes), because in my experience, they are just rubbish and I want that all my data on the laptop.

    I wanted to buy a new hard drive 1 tb (maybe 2) put into it, I guess it is equipped to deal with, (Please someone correct me if they know otherwise) with 4 GB of ram...

    In any case I am really wondered, whether or not I can get out with the help of my new hard disk recovery disks.
    If they did it the old-fashioned way (sending an OS disc and a disc of pilots) I wouldn't even question, but as I created disks of the computer itself, I wasn't too sure when I opened the drives upward to make sure all burned on them ok, I never saw something like what I expected.

    Also, I read somewhere that someone else has tried it and it didn't work, they assumed because the recovery included an image specifically to fit the original hard drive size?

    Can someone enlighten us all please?

    Thank you


    First, you must create the Toshiba Recovery disk using the Toshiba recovery disc Creator called pre-installed tool.
    Usually, you should receive a confirmation message that the recovery was created successfully.
    This means that you can use this disk to restore the laptop to factory settings is not serious what HARD drive is in use.
    This means that the recovery disc should work with the other drives.

    But note; This recovery disk using would format the HARD drive and remove all HARD drive partitions. But this should not bother you if you use the disk HARD vacuum ;)

  • Satellite L500 - can I get all the instruments and the driver for Win 7?

    good then I got this Toshiba Satellite L500 with Intel... its installed with Windows Vista Home Premium...

    The first problem I had with it was that the Toshiba programms stoped working and reformatting the drive and put it back, then I 'solved' this part...

    Now, the second is that RUNDLL32.exe stops working after that the pc started motor pump and the computer stops responding or becomes slow...
    I tried to format the drive but is still of problems.... more the toshiba programms are defective...

    After research I did his seems to have a place of Vista so I asked of upgrade me to windows 7 and then I also had a few questions?:  :|

    1. is it possible to get all the programms Toshiba Windows 7, flash cars, webcam etc.

    2 does windows 7 run all the programms vista only?

    3 - is so great that I heard?

    Thank you! {for your help, I really need some help... thank you: 8}


    I put t know why you have software problem with the Vista OS preinstalled but my Toshiba tools and utilities work fine! Once the control buttons stopped working, but I could fix it reinstall the VAP.

    Back to your question:
    Yes, you can get all the Win 7 drivers and tools for the L500 series. Why not?
    If you would take a glance on the Toshiba page you would find all the stuff for download!

  • Re: Satellite A30 - can't turn on the radio for wifi?

    I have a computer Satellite A30 laptop that I recently installed an ATHEROS 802.11A/B/G internal Mini PCI card. It came with the Atheros Client Utility, I have also installed. Everything seems OK with the map and shows to work OK in Device Manager, but I can't get on the radio to the A30. (Enable radio is grayed out on the utility)

    Having read the manual about it and it shows giving the WiFi switch and also by using the Fn + F8 keys to enable, but it is impossible to get anything to work.

    There should be a light on adjacent to the WiFi switch but it remains off anytime... Any ideas what the problem may be?

    I seem to remember reading somewhere that a Registry Fix may be necessary to activate the switch from WiFi to the A30, is the problem? If so, where the patch is available from. Have tried to search on the net but no joy so far.

    Any help is appreciated!


    the problem is these maps as the atheros cards doesn´t to work correctly with the your machine mini-pci bus, so the hardware switch is not able to trigger the map in Active mode.

    Here´s a small workaround solution, maybe it helps you:

    Do so at your own risk and read correctly the instructions.
