Satellite M30-841: cannot install a clean WinXP Pro - CD not recognized


I got a satellite M30 841 with Xp home on it. Now I want to install my own licensed xp pro version, but I'm not able to see the cd in Solution Explorer - although the cd player works - or to boot from it. Modification using boot command doesn´t.
On the other stand-alone cd works fine. The toshiba recovery cd works on my laptop, but I would like to have Pro.

Can someone help, please?

If you do not see the drive in windows Explorer, try this;en-us;320553

By the way: what is the status of the drive in Device Manager?

    I've just formatted my laptop and reinstalled windows 7. I was installing the toshiba drivers required with success.

    My fn keys work as they are supposed to but when I press on them no visualization for their function appears on the display.

    I was wondering if someone could point me in the right direction on how to restore the display.

    Kind regards

    According to specification s laptop computer, your laptop came with WIN7 64 BITS HOME PREMIUM.
    Is there a problem with the operating system preinstalled, or you just want to have the other version of Win7?

    Sorry for this question but I don t understand why make things more complicated if not necessary.
    I just hope that you created the recovery DVDs until you have installed OS own.

    In General, all the drivers, tools and utilities must be installed in the right installation order. Who knows how you installed it.
    What you can try is to restart flash cards using option in the start menu > all programs > Toshiba > utilities.

    Test it.

  • Satellite M30-841 - large hard drive not recognized

    HY guys,.

    First of all, I want to say hello, because this is my first post in this forum. Merry Christmas as well!

    I am writing because I bought a 160 GB 2hard disk to replace my old 60 GB. When I troed to install it, I saw that it recognizes just 128 GB which, according to my research, is due to the LBA 48 bit not supported on my laptop (Satellite M30-841).

    I tried to everythingmentioned:
    -J' have flash Bios o update the 1.70 (last available driver toshiba Web site)
    -J' changed the downloaded XP SP3 and I changed the registry to install a key DWORD EnableBigLba.

    However, she still recognizes only 128 GB. I'm losing hope to install the new hard drive. Anyone of you has a suggestion that I should try?

    I realized that I should update the driver of my motherboard, but I don't know where they are, if there is (I don't even know the name of it, despite the use of everest - which shows DMI.

    Am I missing something?

    Thank you very much


    Look, man.
    The HARD disk controller seems to support the 28-bit LBA.
    The disk controllers HARD supporting the 28-bit LBA address max 128 GB HDD.
    Controllers HDD support 48-bit LBA address bigger hard drives.
    But this is a physical limitation and you will not resolve this update anything.

    In your case, there is nothing to see

  • Satellite A40: keyboard mapping with us Euro WinXP Pro

    I thought it was a simple problem to solve, but unfortunately it has escaped me. I had to reload a Satellite A40 with the American version of WinXP Pro Corp. Laptop was purchased in Germany. The keyboard is physically different than typical laptops, used here (pressing the button gives you a Z, for example). Is it possible to map the keyboard so that the user can get an idea of what is typed? I crossed the region in question, and I had no chance (unless it's just me?!). Any guys help? Thanks a lot :)


    As you said in your advertisement you can change the keyboard language settings in the Control Panel regional and language settings language Details tab

    In the installed services, you can add the language of the US or UK keyboard.
    Please note: you can set several languages. To switch between the settings please use the keys ALT + SHIFT.

  • Cannot install OS: "this identifier Apple has not yet been used.

    I just got my first Mac yesterday, a mid 2010 Macbook of opportunity. It's in great shape, works great, I was briefly very satisfied with my purchase. Then I tried to reformat/reinstall, as it does whenever purchasing a computer used.

    I followed the instructions here: and when I got to the step three, after the failure of the hard drive, it wouldn't let me install the operating system. He wanted to connect first with my Apple ID, so I did an Apple ID, but now it keeps giving me an error "this identifier Apple has not yet been used in the App store" and then it gives me the opportunity to cancel or "review". Click Cancel simply cancels the installation, just by clicking on review also cancels the installation.

    An ID is not necessary, but there is no way I can see to avoid it say the instructions on this page. It was suggested that maybe I could avoid the connection on the way to recovery, rather than recovery of the Internet, but the Cmd + R and Cmd + Option + R give recovery of the Internet. I don't see any way to get to the regular recovery.

    I had a suggestion to install from the disc, but I have not all discs. If I could download it from somewhere and burn them then that would be nice, but the instructions on this page are pretty clearly that it should not be necessary to use disks. I should be able to do without signing in.

    So... what upward with who? Where should I go from here? Is it possible to do a regular recovery? Or bypass the Apple ID thing?

  • "Cannot install the printer. Operation could not be performed. error 0x000003eb.

    I'm running Windows 7 (not Vista) and trying to install a Kodak printer driver and get "cannot install the printer. Operation could not be performed. error 0x000003eb"I searched constantly everyday for a fix. You have a solution other than what answers are already in this forum.  I uninstalled and reinstalled tried wireless and usb, installation driver separately, tried to install it in safe mode, run now utility scan.  I think that the problem began with an update of Windows 7 which has hung up and eventually having a corrupted file?


    What is the exact model of the printer number?
    I suggest you to check if the printer is compatible with Windows 7:
    If the printer is compatible, then uninstall all the drivers connected the printer to the computer, download the latest drivers from the website of the manufacturer, the install without connection to the printer.
    Connect the printer when it prompts.

    If the problem persists, contact the printer manufactrer for assistance

  • Satellite X 205 - cannot install audio drivers


    I have problems with installing the audio driver on my Satellite X 205 sli1. I tried to install the drivers from the realtek site, but they doesen't work. Then, I tried to install the patches 'kb835221' 'kb88811' and that the drivers but still nothing.

    I can't find the drivers on the toshiba Web site. In everest, I checked my audio device is - Realtek ALC268 @ Intel 82801HBM ICH8M - high definition Audio Controller PCI.

    Please help me!

    Hey Buddy,

    In my opinion the easiest way is installation of Service Pack 3 for Windows XP. It contains patches for cards high definition sound and the other important security fixes. You can download it from the Microsoft Web site.

    But SP3 or patches must be installed * first * and then the audio driver. Otherwise it will not work.

    So my recommendations, uninstalling the audio driver and clean your system using the freeware CCleaner tool. Restart your computer and make sure and install SP3 if it s does not. After that, install the latest driver from the Web to Realtek site.

    Check this box!

  • Satellite A300D-17Z - cannot install the display driver for Vista


    There is a big problem with my A300D-17Z.

    The laptop has ATI HD3470 Hybrid Crossfire display system. I'm trying to install the driver in Vista Ultimate, but it does not work. The ATI Catalyst control cannot install and ATI driver file is empty. Shows Device Manager still there are two graphics card with «!» I tried so many ways. Install framework 3.5, pilot of the AMD 7 series, last version of the ATI driver, driver of the same other computer brand who says that worked.

    Please help me, I had been tormented for nearly 48 hours. PLEASE, I BEG YOU!


    Have you tried to install the driver to display on the Toshiba site? You can find it here: decision-making supported Downloads & => Download drivers

    Before you try to install a new display driver, you must remove any old version in Add/Remove programs. Then, restart the laptop and use CCleaner to clean the system. Restart again and then install the new version.

    You have the same problem with the factory settings? In the worst case, you must reinstall Windows using Toshiba recovery disc.

  • Satellite A50-109: cannot install the latest driver for card ghraphic

    Please help me
    my graphics card: Intel 82852/82855 GM/graphics controller GME

    Hi Milad,
    Did you get the new driver from the web site of Toshiba or others.

    The graphics card in your laptop is not necessarily compatible with the latest drivers from the manufacturer, simply because it is specially designed for your laptop. Usually only the drivers supplied by Toshiba works correctly.


  • Satellite M30-104 - cannot set a good resolution on external monitor

    Hello world

    I have a Satellite M30-104 with a nvidia GeForce FX5200.
    This works well but when I plug in an external monitor, which is a widescreen 1440 * 900, I can not put the correct resolution, even if I install the latest driver.

    What can I do?

    Thank you


    First of all you must check in your manual if your graphics card would support such a resolution external.

    But note; you will not be able to select this resolution if the graphics driver doesn t contains, although this resolution would be supported by the graphics card.

    As you can see two facts are important: driver graphics and graphics card can support this resolution if you want to use.

    Welcome them

  • Satellite M30-S309: cannot change on the local network adapter device


    My name is Sebastian and I have a Satellite M30-S309 I can't configure IT the Connection WiFi.
    The drivers its OK (and reinstall) the LAN, but the WiFi RADIO network ok is OFF, have any opportunity to step ON this Board?

    I reinstall the KEYBOARD shortcut, but I think that the app or utility for the Fn + F8 key and the LED does not.

    Any can help me?
    Thanks in advance,


    You said the LAN is ok, but are you sure that the wireless network adapter has been installed on this laptop. Please check in the area to network adapters Device Manager.
    If the wireless network adapter has been installed, you should see the wireless network card in this area. As much as I k now the Wlan switch on the front of the laptop works only if the wireless network adapter has been placed.

  • Satellite A300 PSAG4E - cannot install ATI Cataliys

    Did you remove the previous catalyst of the system?
    Maybe it s a registry problem

    It's my recommendation;
    Before install you new ATI catalyst, delete the previous.
    Then clean the OS using CCleaner. It s free!
    After that several reboots try reinstalling the catalyst again

  • Satellite L655-145 cannot install the bluetooth stack

    Cannot install bluetooth stack. Just Setup freeze. All other drivers installed successfully. Device Manager only show Bluetooth ACPI device. This problem appeared after the update of the BIOS of the original version 1.80 to more older (1.80-1.90-2.10-2.20 > > >). Downgrade from 1.80 take no effect.

    PS. Sorry for my bad English.


    As far as I know the laptop is equipped with WIFI and Bluetooth combo card!
    This means that Wlan and BT functionality is controlled by a single card.

    If you BIOS outsider (don t know why) Please put failing first.
    Save the changes and reboot the laptop.

    Then download the BT BT Toshiba stack.
    Activate BT (FN + F8), then launch the installation of battery BT once more.
