Satellite L655 sometimes does not recognize the wireless card

I have a L655. Most of the time it works perfectly fine. Sometimes when I turn on my computer, it does not recognize my wireless card. He considers that it is not at all.

The icon in the status bar says that there is no cable ethernet plugged in and nothing on the wireless.
Usually this icon is not present, and one for the wireless is (whether it is connected or not and if there are connections available or not). In the device manager there is nothing for the wireless card.

Under network card it has only ethernet. Its as if it does not exist.
Basically the way to solve this problem is by restarting simply my computer until he figures it.
Sometimes, it can take 5 or more times.

Any help please?



What satellite L655-xxx you have exactly?
As far as I know there are different models with different wireless network cards.

Your BIOS is up to date? Please check this box.

So now to a few proposals of solution:
First of all that I recommend to check if the update of the Wlan driver would improve the Wlan functionality.
In addition, you must deactivate the energy saving feature for Wlan in Device Manager and Windows 7 power options as well.

    To my knowledge, the A110-294 uses the Atheros WLan card and therefore the Atheros Wlan dirver should be the right one.

    You can find the latest driver for Atheros WLan here:

    Just a question;

  • Equium P200 does not recognize the wireless network with Win XP card

    Dear team

    I recently installed windows XP on my Equium P200 (he had originally vista).
    Now, I have a problem with the Atheros wireless card. The computer does not recognize the wireless card is installed. I tried uninstalling the drivers and reinstalling, but nothing works. In the hardware Manager, I get an error code 10 when you try to install the drivers. Can someone please help.

    Thank you

    Are you sure that you have an Atheros WLan card installed on this laptop computer at 100%?
    I recommend you to check the bottom of the unit. There are labels with information about the wireless network card! I think that there is a number. Then google for this number and you should get information on the wireless network card.

    Eventually he s one card Intel. | In this case, you should try to install the driver from Intel.

    Make sure you have the latest network adapter drivers fron toshiba

    and if windows update is at the origin of the problem change how to get updates to uncover the problem update

    When you have found the issue, a right click on it then invited uac then hide

    read the information on the link below

    Download updates but let me choose whether to install them - if you select this option, Windows will download the updates on your computer, but not install them automatically. If you want to install updates, then you must install them manually. You should only select this option if you have a reason to not install updates automatically. Only advanced users should use this option.

    Check for updates but let me choose whether to download and install them - if you select this option, you'll be alerted when there are new updates available for download and install.

This option should really be reserved for people who know exactly which updates they need, or those who have little access to the Internet.

  • Moto Q does not recognize the memory card

    I just added a 2 GB memory card that is approved for the Moto Q 9 M... For some reason, my phone does not recognize the memory card. In the memory section it shows the card is unknown.

    With a previous discussion, I saw, I did add the memory card on my PC. It does not recognize the card... Any ideas?

    Thank you


    Try formatting the card on your pc and then install it on the phone. If it's 2 GB sandisk it should work fine. If the phone or the card is left. Sometimes reformat card strives to set everything right.

  • Portege R700 - Autocad 2011 does not recognize the graphics card


    I have toshiba Portege R700 with 64-bit win 7 installed.
    I need the computer for use with autocad 2011.

    For some reason any auocad does not recognize the graphics card installed on the computer.
    I suspect it because very little memory is allocated for the graphics card.

    How can I change with the memory allocated for the graphics card, or perhaps, can someone show me where can I find a driver that supports autocad.

    Thank you very much!


    What Portege R700-xxx you have exactly?
    As far as I know the graphics memory cannot be assigned manually.
    Everything is controlled by the graphics driver and you have no influence on this

    You can try updating the graphics card driver maybe it would help.
    The most recent driver found on the page of the European driver Toshiba
    If not, you should check the manufacturer of the graphics chip driver

    Good luck

    Original title: peripheral equipment

    An SD card is inserted, but the PC (my laptop is a Packard bell) has no reaction. It does not recognize the memory card.

    Thanks for your help.

    Hi Stefano,

    Thanks for posting your question in the Microsoft Community.

    This problem can be caused if the SD card is damaged or the card reader may not work properly.

    1. What is the brand and model of the SD memory card?

    2. What is the number of the model of the Packard Bell laptop?

    3. you receive an error code or the message after inserting the SD card into your laptop?

    4. have you made any recent hardware or exchange of software on your computer before the show?

    5. have you tried to insert different SD card in your laptop?

    6. have you checked the SD card in another computer?

    7. you try to connect the SD card to a built-in card reader or externally by USB port card reader?

    8. is the specific question to a SD card or any type of cards?

    9. are you able to detect the SD card in the Device Manager?

  • Satellite 1900 (PS192E) - does not recognize the CD/DVD

    Hey all,.

    I just bought a Toshiba Satellite 1900 (PS192E) and place an old 20 GB HDD from an old laptop.

    When I boot, the screen is in VGA 16 color mode, it recognizes the DVD player, but does not recognize the CD/DVD when inserted. I tried to install and run the utility "driver robot" Toshibas, but the display is such that I see all of the screen to start the search.

    If there is someone out there who could give me some advice, I would be extremely grateful.

    Thank you very much



    OK, you have installed the disk HARD of another laptop but too format the HARD drive? I mean if the HARD drive performed from another laptop, you need to reinstall Windows because now you have other hardware installed.
    What version of Windows is it?

    If you want to install a driver for the graphics card go into Device Manager and select Update driver.

  • Satellite Pro 6100 does not recognize the single battery external power

    Whenever I have start Satellite Pro 6100 Win XP Pro with standard battery mounted and connected to the power supply computer laptop does not recognize the ext battery supply single supply and during 'start-up' goes into hibernation.

    By pressing the power on button laptops "wake up" and indicate that the battery is empty or may not even decide when completely loaded, then says connect the station even if still connected, looking under Toshiba console when it runs shows running on battery when still in the power of the ext?

    I have two batteries and both give the above symptoms even when I remove ext of laptop power always runs with power supply by battery but no light orange or green for battery.
    Any ideas?


    Is your AC adapter malfunctions or there is something wrong with the power supply to electronic s laptop.
    In the first case you could purchase a new compatible AC adapter and could check if the laptop can run successfully.
    The second possibility is a serious hardware problem, but in this case, the laptop must be checked by an authorized technician.
