Satellite L670 - downgrade Windows 7 to XP
A Toshiba Satellite L670 run Windows XP.
I had the L670 camera for 3 weeks and find Windows 7 and Add-ons possible the biggest pile of bovine excrement. With levels of frustration at its zenith, the only way out I see is downgrade to XP.
Can I reformat and load XP?
Please stop punishing the smart to the actions of the ignorant
Of course, you can install Win XP. Why not
On the European driver Toshiba page, you will find some Win XP drivers.
If some drivers would be missing, then you could look for drivers with your own hands.
This HowTo should be useful:
Can you please help. Just a week before I bought the Toshiba Satellite T230-10j. The laptop comes with Windows 7 64-bit edition. It has the recovery partition and no other support provided with the same. Is it possible to downgrade from 64-bit to 32-bit OS. If so can someone please provide the *.wim image. There are a many applications doesnot support 64 - bit os and the only way for me would be the Windows 7 32 bit.
Can someone guide me how to proceed further with this.
As much as I know the laptop won't was delivered with any disk recovery because you could create a clean recovery disc image using the Toshiba Recovery creator software that was preinstalled on your laptop.
In addition if you want to downgrade the Win 7 64 bit to 32 bit then you will need to purchase the 32 bit version.
Using the Satellite L670 with windows 7 32 bit. Australia
I use my neighbors wireless because I lost my connection to the local network. I don't have a paid Wi - Fi connection
I have been in contact with my ISP Distributor and the modem. I can see myself as th e local area Connection is not on my computer. I did a system restore and it did not help. Obviously because it is a question of Toshiba... I was told to ring Toshiba, but because it's the weekend they are not available.
Is there anything that i can do - download soomething? If so it will download to my connection or my neighbor as it is concered, that will be the case.
Can anyone help please?
Thanks in advance
Maybe it sounds silly now, but it is not easy to understand your ad. Sorry, but what is the main problem? LAN connectivity?
If I understand you right, WLAN option on your laptop works fine.
I have a Toshiba Satellite L670 with Windows 7 64 bit Home Premium edition.
Recently, I bought 3 keys usb SanDisk Cruzer, 2x8Gb, and 4 GB. Have you tried multiple USB ports on this computer, but the same result. The computer recognizes that the SanDisk Cruzers, because it makes the sound when the USB drive is plugged into the machine, but it does not appear on the file manager or Explorer windows of this machine, so can not use the USB.
I moved that the USB stick to a two other machines of Windows 7 (Home Premium version). The USB is immediately recognized by the Office else opens and is available in the windows Explorer, with no problems. I found a temporary solution of desconecting my Toshiba of the cable of power supply and after reboot, the sticks are recognized, but only for 10-15 minutes.
very delicate situation, please help!
Well, if the USB is recognized from another computer USB sticks seem to be ok and it must be a problem of your laptop.
Have you checked the Device Manager if all USB ports are recognized correctly or is there a yellow exclamation mark in the Device Manager on the USB ports?
I had a similar problem with the USB ports, so I removed all the USB ports in Device Manager (right click > uninstall) and then I rebooted the computer. After that, the ports have been recognized again and I could use my USB devices again. :)
I have a new Satellite L670 with Windows 7 Home Premium. With this laptop I can connect to my network 802.11 g WLAN. Everything works very well. Now I wanted to connect to my 802.11n wlan (router: linksys wrt610n) but it does not work. Laptop can't see the network (ssid) and it does not work if I entered the ssid manually too. The network works with my mac mini perfectly if it is not a failure of the 802.11n.
I have updated all drivers from the laptop, all the updates that are installed under windows and I tested the driver broadcom broadcom itself (once the driver from toshiba Web site and the other driver from broadcom site) but nothing works. Laptop can't see the ssid and a manual configuration do not work too.
Can someone help me pls?

What Satellite L675 you exactly and what WLAN card there?
On the Web from Toshiba site, I saw some L675 models they support project t N n
I have a * big problem with my Toshiba Satellite L670 *. When it starts, I get the message "+ Windows has encountered a problem communicating with a device connected to your PC. This error may be due to an external disconnection from external storage such as a USB device or a driver in CD-Rom or HARD disk failure. "Check the connection of the external storage device and reboot your PC.
There is also a "+ status: 0xc00000e9 +".
When the PC starts, the indicator DC in, power, battery, drive HARD and Wifi are on. And I havn't any external storage device connected to this PC.
Is there someone who had an idea to solve my problem?
Thanks in advance
Is everything is OK with LAN, WLAN devices? Both of them work?
Check it please state material and Device Manager there. If your laptop is BT can you use it?
I ve upgraded my Win7 L670 to Win10. After upgrade do not work key Fn. is it possible to recover the functionality of these buttons in Windows 10.
Each cell function requires special tools and utilities.
In the case of FN keys, Toshiba software controls this feature.
But as far as I know that the Satellite L670 won't get any utility Windows 10 so probably this key will not work running Win 10.
Here the details on the 10 Windows upgrade:
Can anyone help? I also try to format a USB drive on my Toshiba Satellite L670 Windows 7 but he repeats to me windows cannot format.
Can you confirm that Windows on another PC or laptop do the same thing?
I have a problem in game with my keyboard/mouse combination.
When I run it, I can't draw.
I changed the keys, mouse, connected to an external keyboard, checked drivers mouse and keyboard. Any extract, which makes me think that it is a driver/hardware problem. First time I noticed it, I thought it was a bug in the game. Now I have a new problem.
The games that I have encountered the problem: Borderlands 2 and Rainbow Six Vegas 2
Satellite L670 - 1 L 4
Windows 7 operating system
Mouse: Trust model #16336
As far as I know the mouse and keyboard drivers are the drivers Microsoft and Toshiba doesn't offer drivers for these devices except the driver for the touchpad to improve the touchpad options. I don t think that Toshiba is testing the feature with different games.
Confused, it's that you have noticed the same problem using the external keyboard and mouse.
Is there a possibility to test it with some older games?
Please I need your help.
I have a Toshiba Satellite L670 and when I turn on the laptop its stay at black screen:
I bought a new LCD (new) + New (second hand) + switch (used)
But still dosnt up properly: sometimes 1/5 turn and I can go to windows but freez or not no matter what rebbot = black screen on restart!
When I put the AC:
1-led CA arrives WE
When I push the button walk / stop
2 - led power coming
The HARD Drive LED is on for 2 seconds and OFF no = no more HARD drive detection
The continuous Cpu fan to spin, sometimes stops, sometimes go very fast and turn OFF directly.

You see a cursor blinking in the upper left corner or just a black screen?
The blinking cursor is an indicator of malfunction of the drive HARD or the fault of RAM.
But as you bought another LCD and 2nd hand motherboard, one of these parts may be affected also.
Are you sure that the 2nd hand motherboard is OK. I think it could be a troublemaker.
I own a Toshiba Satellite L670 running on Ubuntu Linux. I want to update my bios from version 1.00 to last version 2.30.
But the site offers serverals versions window and one version of the OS "independent." I downloaded it and the .zip file contains only an .exe file I can't use with Linux.
How can I update my bios? Not there at - it no .bin file?
This Toshiba laptop model no is not supported for Linux and all offered stuff on the download page are designed for the Windows operating system only if you cannot update BIOS if you use the failure to take in charge of operating system.
Anyway, if there is a problem with your laptop BIOS update is not necessary.
Hello, since a few days my laptop loses its internet connection when I move a few meters or put me behind a window. In this case, I am sitting the router to 2 meters maximum. The power of wireless transmission is very good according to the screen, but there is no access. If I go back inside and once again, I have Internet.
Should what drivers I replace to make sure that my setup is correct? Either way, I also found that the Control Panel, the network card freezes from time to time if I try to change the configuration.
The laptop my wife works correctly in all cases.
Modellname Satellite L670
Serial number 9A572922K
BS-Version Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium Service Pack 1 6.1.7601
BIOS Version 2.30
Processor Intel (r) Core i5 CPU M 460 @ 2.53 GHz
4096MB RAM Arbeitsspeicher
Something like that shouldn't happen.
Do you use original pre-installed BONES you have gotten with this laptop?
According to tender specifications that there card Broadcom BCM94313 WLAN indoors. Try to install the latest driver from http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/wlan/
I have a Satellite L670 - 1 H 1, a new laptop that runs Windows 7, with all the drivers and software uptodate, including the wireless card.
I have a BT Home Hub 3 with an Edimax EW 7416APN v2 300 m range extender to help boost the signal in the kitchen area.
The laptop works fine when I stay in the room where the reception centre. If I move in the kitchen the laptop will usually lose the wireless connection after a few minutes and I cannot get it back unless I turn the LAPTOP works and return to the Home Hub.
I see no obvious reason to this problem. Two other laptop computers used in the home, more a smartphone stay connected with full signal in every corner of the House, at any time.
I have to use the range extender, but is it possible that the laptop Toshiba just don't hear well with it?
Any advice would be welcome.
As you know quality of connection WLAN depends on different factors is not easy to say why you have this problem, WLAN. I use Toshiba laptops for a long time now and I didn't notice in the past some serious question of WLAN.
For example I'm 4 router with standard g and have very good signal even in the cellar too or out in the back yard.
If possible, try to test the WLAN connection elsewhere. Maybe your friends have WLAN routers so you can test it.
You have a new router or old?
What WLAN standard do you use (b/g/n)?
I bought a Toshiba Satellite L670-1EE January 2011
Now the system completely crashed and I need to reinstall from scratch.
My problem is, that the first 5 digits of the product key Microsoft are not readable.
Are there opportunities to get the key, or can I use a special image of Toshiba to retrieve?
I can't access the installed windows, fails to start, I tried a recovery with a DVD of victory but it didn't work, so I need to reinstall it.
> My problem is, that the first 5 digits of the product key Microsoft are not readable.
This key cannot be used as part of the new Windows 7
It is an OEM key that belongs to the image of Toshiba. For the most part, these keys don't work.
The point is that Toshiba preinstalled system has already been activated in the image of the Toshiba.
But there is no need to be activated after the recovery procedure.
So if you want to use the own system of Windows, you must purchase a license from Microsoft.
In case you want to use the image of Toshiba, you must use the Toshiba Recovery disk that probably, you have not created in the past. Right?
In this case, there is another option: you can order this disc from here:
I have this laptop: Satellite L670-184 PSK3EE-039007FR
This laptop is no longer under warranty, but my will is to save my data and whether my hard drive might be fix.
For 13 months, I have seen no problems with him, but for 2 weeks, I have experiment some gel and bug during initialization. Last week, I couldn't reach the connection windows operating system, I try to reach the Restore tool (F8 key) but there is no possibility to achieve the recovery partition.
With a live CD, I managed to save some data, but after recording, my hard drive was not identified in the linux live cd or in a SATA / USB link.
The hard disk starts itself, but is not identified. The disc was not uncommon or metallic sounds. It is impossible to load an operating system or of the TOSHIBA recovery partition in the laptop (SATA port) or via USB (SATA/USB tool).
The laptop starts with another hard drive SATA (SATA drive Exchange).
What is your opinion?
Can it be fixed (at this point, it is not a question of money but a question of possibility...)?
There are software or processes to identy, restart or restore the disk without it recognition? How it identified?
> The laptop starts with another hard drive SATA (SATA drive Exchange).
In this case, it would mean that the disc is broken I recommend you replace this HARD drive and install the operating system once more using the Toshiba disk recover.
If you didn't create the disc of recovery in the past, then you can order it here:
