Satellite L650-11R: I can not disable the WiFi using Fn + F8 module


I have a rather strange problem: I can not disable the WiFi using Fn + F8 module.

It happens after reinstalling Windows. I installed Windows 7 Pro SP1 x 64 (MSDNAA). I installed the driver Broadcom WLAN, then Toshiba Value added package and Bluetooth Stack from Toshiba Web site.

When I press Fn + F8 there is only a Bluetooth icon, I can enable and disable. And there is no WiFi icon.
Wireless network card is listed in the Device Manager, it works.

Before you reinstall Windows, when I had used pre-installed Windows 7 HP, it worked correctly: there were three icons, I could turn off/turn on WiFi, BT and the two WiFi + BT by pressing Fn + F8.

Does anyone have a problem like this?
Can someone help me?

Thanks in advance.

Hmm generally the FN + F8 should switch on / off the Wlan correctly.
Maybe the WLan driver must be installed again even if the wireless network adapter is already visible in Device Manager.
Try it

Welcome & good luck

    The use of the battery has increased since the update to ios 10. Also, why can not disable the voice command. It's the most boring on the new update.

    Depending on what you mean by "voice command", either:

    Settings / general / accessibility / VoiceOver / OFF, or

    Settings / Siri / OFF

    As for your use of the battery, you can check what app pulls most of its use in the settings / battery.  A new version of the app is sometimes problematic, not necessarily iOS or iPhone.  If you see a unusual % of use of a particular application, or force-to leave it removal/reinstalling it or remove it until an update comes.  If anything seems unusual, it might be a problematic installation of iOS, in which case, you could backup your iPhone and restore it:

  • Inspiron N7010 can not disable the Touchpad

    I have an Inspiron N7010, Windows 764 bit, it was determined that the hard drive was once again, therefore, dell sent me a new hard drive, I made an image of the system on an external hard drive, then installed the new hard drive without any problem.   BUT after getting thru all the updates I noticed the touchpad has been activated and I always use a usb mouse, so I like the touch pad disabled.

    She used to take a minute to turn it off, now nothing works going on at the control panel and mouse properties gives me NO option to turn it off, I'm pretty sure that the last time this happened a Dell technician downloaded a different driver and it sets like that, but I don't remember for sure.  I went to Dells driver support and let Dells Diagnostic scan my computer and tell me what I need drivers.  I down load them and installed what he said and it came that I already had newer drivers than those it says to download, I just download them anyway to make sure and NOT luck.

    Is there maybe another driver I'm missing, or could I do something out of order, when I installed the new hard drive and loaded my system from the last hard disk image? Everything went very well, I thought, I have NO problem with my mouse external, other that I can not disable the touchpad or the touchpad and it makes me crazy lol. I sincerely appreciated any ideas or help with this.

    Thank you in advance!


    I found my driver and Utilities disc provided with my computer and found the touchpad on the disk driver and installed it on my computer and after restarting, I went to my mouse and presto, now I have the RIGHT driver, so I'm HAPPY to REPORT that THIS has been RESOLVED!

    Thank you and HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

  • Satellite L650-11R - its is trolling when the screen is off

    Hello people.

    I have an interesting problem. In fact, I have a Satellite L650-11R and TV Panasonic TX P42X10Y.

    When I connect the laptop and TV via HDMI and everything works as it should be, games, movies, but everything works fine until the screen of the laptop is open. While it is closed or if you switchmake the TV your main screen or the office, the sound in the movies is bad.
    And not every 30 seconds or minutes rather than continuous. Picture is great, but the sound is a disaster, even a few seconds do not hear a thing.

    The laptop is not even a week, codecs are concerned probably not because the sound works in the movies when the laptop is open.

    Any help appreciated

    PS Sorry for the English


    To be honest, I never heard such a problem. For example if I connect my laptop to TV cable HDMI I always have good sound quality, even I use two monitors or monitors only.

    In any case, what operating system you have? You use the version preinstalled Windows or another?

    First of all I would update the audio driver. His most recent driver, you can download from the official website of Toshiba: > support & downloads > download drivers

  • Re: Satellite P500 of USA - can not read the local DVD


    Sorry to appear such a luddite acquired but this laptop great USA from eBay.
    User manual appears to indicate that the player is going to adapt to the locality of the drives I want to play.

    Not had any luck with playback at all to this day, the error message 'not compatible' etc., any guy of suggestions?

    See you soon,.

    Hi mate

    I think that the portable player s (optical disc) DVD region is set in the United States and therefore you can not read the DVD released for the European market.

    To resolve this problem, you must change the option of DVD region 2 region.

    My computer-> drive CD / DVD-> properties-> Hardware tab-> choose the CD drive / DVD-> properties-> DVD region

    Notes; You can change this settings ONLY 4 times. After that the parameters is no longer editable.

  • Satellite Pro A100-622 can not read the card SD and Memory Stick with Windows Explorer

    I have a Satellite Pro A100-622 running MS Vista Home Basic Edition. I tried to use the card reader integrated with SD and Memory Stick card but cannot view the contents using Windows Explorer.

    In both cases, the laptop recognizes the card and try to install new hardware. Unable to do so, he asks the drive of the software provided with the cards. Any software not provided with a card and I cannot find drivers to make the drive work.

    The only application that I can find on the laptop that is associated with the player is a module of SD formatting, but I don't want to format the card (s) I want to just read the current content of them and add files.

    Any ideas?


    You can download the drivers (and especially in your case for the sd-card-reader) here:

    and here

    So the other point is the service of the SD card must be enabled in the start menu-> Control Panel (change to Classic view)-> Administration-> Services-> Chip card (at this point, you must activate the service and configure it to start at windows startup).

    If you have any other questions, just ask. ;)

    Good bye

  • BlackBerry smartphones can not disable the device password!

    I was playing with my Storm the weekend and decided to apply a password to the device. Now I can't turn it off and I hate that I am constantly asked for her. When I go to 'Options', then 'password' it has not the ability to disable the password feature. The toggle button at the top of the password page is soft gray with a tiny tiny red lock next to her and I can't click on the button. The only thing I can do is to change the password. Any suggestions? !!

    I solved my problem. I did a reset of the handset and that got rid of the option activate the password. However, when I did a backup of subsequent restoration of the handset, I was careful to choose only what I wanted really saved (address book, calendar, etc.). If oyu make a full backup that you will get the active password once you restore again.

  • Satellite C660 - 2-3: can not enter the BIOS


    I activated the quick start function that ignores the Logos and boots only from the HARD drive, but now I need to install a 32-bit Windows for the school, but I can not enter or reset the Bios.

    I tried every combination of buttons, I can think.
    Is there a way to delete this feature again without disassembling?
    Existing windows are not the original, so no toshiba software is installed.

    Thanks for help.


    Have you tried pressing the F2 key while turning on the laptop?
    Press F2 repeatedly in line if this will not help press first "INS" and then F2 to enter the BIOS

  • I can not disable the software at startup on my T61 agroenvironnemenaux

    I disabled the fingerprint software and the power of password in the bios. I rebooted and checked. The display shows both are disabled. However when I powered the xp splash screen appears, then a box with a graphic of fingerprints and the message "Please login to registration of fingerprints. Or press Ctrl-Alt_Delete to you connect using a password.

    When I press Ctrl-Alt-Delete sometimes I det the windows login screen. Since I have no password by pushing the back allows me to use my machine. However, it is an annoyance and sometimes Ctrl-Alt-Delete is ignored and I have to turn off and start again.

    Guy 7661-D28 S / N L3 - xxxxx 08/09

    Any ideas?

    Note of the moderator; s/n, edited for the protection of its own

    It's been a while for me also on XP, but you deleted digital data within the application of fingerprints?

    In Win7 there is a flag says "Show at startup" (or similar), if the XP version has a place too then try turning off as well.

  • Can not disable the windows messaging

    I am trying to install anti-virus software, but the installation stops because the windows mail is running. However, windows mail does not work. I checked in the Task Manager, and it is not running. I opened the program and the fact that there was nothing there came out. Yet anti virus cannot install because he thinks windows mail is running. It's one of those stupoid programs windows do not have to uninstall and it does not appear in the list of features. So, how can I get rid of him. I need to get my anti virus running.

    Hello labirder,

    Thanks for posting on the Microsoft answers Forum.

    Have you tried to install your antivirus in Mode safe?
    To start the program in safe mode:

    1. reboot your computer and start pressing the F8 key (it may be a function key different on your computer) on your keyboard. On a computer that is configured to start to multiple operating systems, you can press the F8 key when you see the boot menu.

    2. when the Windows Advanced Options menu appears, select Safe Mode, and then press ENTER.

    3 log on to Windows by using the administrator account or any account of a user with administrator privileges.

    Note: In Safe Mode, your display system and the Bureau will look and perform differently than in Normal Mode. This is only temporary. To return the system to Normal mode, we can simply restart the computer.

    Please respond and let us know if this suggestions to get your software installed.
