Satellite M30: Options after replacing the motherboard's missing energy saver

Hi all

I just got my laptop back from the service center, and not surprisingly, they've pushed a device that existed!

I had my laptop (M30 1.7 GHz special edition) for the centre of repair for a defect and they informed me that the motherboard had to be replaced. I got the laptop back a couple of days and I immediately noticed the laptop is overheating, fan has not turned too often that he was setting the profile to "Full Power".

After hours of investigation, I noticed that a few options that existed in the Toshiba Power Saver no longer exists. So, in my opinion, that my laptop is running as optimized battery even if it is set to full power.

As I said, the fan is not put on too often, leading to the laptop is overheating. Then the fan used to be almost constantly on full power before the replacement of the motherboard.

Here's how the energy saver used to look like 'before' to take the laptop to the repair center:

And here is how the energy saver looks now, after the replacement of the motherboard:
with maximum processing speed of the CPU to 3 instead of 4.

Note how I'm now lack the "CPU control method" option, and I cannot adjust the speed of treatment to more than level 3!

Cooling method does not appear the maximum performance for me either, because of the symptoms I mentioned above.

Any idea on why that might happen? Please note that I used the recovery CD system and everything back to factory settings, still no luck. I'm sick and tired of going back to their ugly repair center. If someone can point out the problem, I'll be very grateful.

P.S. I use version 7 of the energy saver, verion BIOS 1.4 (original)

Thanks in advance.


I wonder why you did not contact the service guy again.
After the repair everything it works fine and if the laptop is not working properly, you should immediately report it! I think it s a claim.

However, to my knowledge after the replacement of the motherboard that the micro code to the Board of Directors must be updated with the CPU could perform specific performance.
What CPU speed appears in the windows system?

I m not 100% sure if the microcode update missing is responsible for your problem, but I recommend asking to view ASP.

  • Windows will not start after replacing the motherboard

    To begin, I must say that I am pretty clueless when it comes to computer skills.

    To summarize, I sent my CPU to a repair shop when my computer has stopped working. I removed my hard drive before starting the repairs because it contains confidential data.  They have narrowed the cause to a faulty motherboard and replaced by a new dissimilar.
    At the store, the guy had a vista 64 bit recovery disc so I have it home and tried to fix it. He said it will be a breeze and relatively bug free. As part of the Startup Repair, I tried to drive the Startup Repair, and tests were all successful except one. An error of diagnosis readings
    "Unspecified system configuration changes may have caused the problem.
    Repair action: repair and checking the integrity of system files
    Result: failed. Error code 0 x 490
    time taken = 720023 ms
    Everything I've done has led to a brief blue screen to the Windows loading screen and then it restarts itself.
    I also tried to restore to the previous two points, but it has also led to the square - a brief blue screen after the loading screen and restarts on its own windows. I'm not ready to reinstall vista and I can't afford to do it too, because I don't have enough disk space to perform another installation. Nor am I willing to reformat one of my two disks.
    If you need additional information on the specifications of the material that must be provided, ask me.
    IM at my end intelligence now, and I really hope to solve this problem.

    I'm sorry, but you have to completely reinstall the operating system after replacing the motherboard with a different motherboard.

    "Startup Repair" is exactly that: a start NOT a repair system repairs

    What has happened, it is the operating system on your hard disk contains the drivers for the old motherboard and does not and you can't change drivers in doing what you do.

    The only way to solve this problem is to reinstall Vista.

    You wipe the hard drive and restart and make sure that the repair shop gave you the disc to install the new drivers of motherboard after you reinstall vista or download on the website of the manufacturer of the motherboard.

    And here a question for you to consider, too.

    If you bought a copy of Vista retail yourself, you can use the method above to a new installation and then install the new disk motherboard drivers.

    But, if your computer is a trademark of purchased manufacturer, HP, Toshiba, etc., you can not change the motherboard that the license of Vista OEM is stuck at motherboard the origin of the manufacturer that it has been installed on and now you canceled your Vista license.

    See you soon.

  • Want to 800-060: reactivation after replacing the motherboard

    I bought a HP Envy 800-060 with Windows 8 pre - install Amazon in July of 2013. It was an incredible computer since that time, and when the free update of Windows 8 for Windows 10, I did immediately released. Recently, however, the motherboard has failed on the computer. It would not stay same POSITION, and after much troubleshooting, I finally decided to replace the motherboard. Now that the computer is running again, I guess that the motherboard change was sufficient for the operating system to think that it is no longer enabled. I was never provided with a key of Activation of OS (Win8 has been pre-installed), and Microsoft has suggested that I contact HP to find the original key. I've looked everywhere on the chassis and inside the tower for a valid Windows activation key, nothing helps. I tried to find a phone number to call for support, but my product is outside the guarantee. I don't need advice or troubleshooting tips (so I don't pay the $59.99), all I need is my activation key valid Windows based on my serial number of the product. Anyone know the best way to achieve HP with this problem and have it is resolved?

    Thanks in advance!



    The unfortunate, is that your original product key has been incorporated in the firmware original by HP motherboard UEFI when the PC was built.  There is no way to recover this key now.

    HP retains no record of keys to individualized product corresponding to individual computers, so they won't be able to provide you with the original key - and they are under no obligation to provide you with a SECOND key, that you didn't do the replacement of HP hardware.

    With the product now being out of warranty, it's really call HP or not you upload support - and the experience I have had with older equipment-, they do that, there's just no way around IDs.

    HP customer support is really the only way you have to get support.  If they don't help you for free, because your PC is out of warranty, there is nothing we can do about it on this forum.

  • a610n - fan error of the system after replacing the motherboard

    Hi all

    I just replaced the motherboard on my system (phone and now I get this error when starting: Fan failure system, PC service to avoid any damage. I thought it was the CPU fan but he was running and after some research, I realized that he could talk a case fan.

    As a side note, the motherboard, I had was a little different and missing 2 connections that seem to be the front mic/headphone and USB ports.

    Now, the case's fan then what really is the problem? Any ideas anyone?

    Thank you


    The rev3.02 of M2N68 - THE Committee a case fan rear 3 poles. See here.

    The CPU fan is a 4 pin cable and attaches to the appropriate header to 4 pins on the motherboard. See the representative schema above.

    As for you, another question, the front USB port attaches to a USB connector on the card.

  • Qosmio F10 recover after replacing the motherboard


    I'm having a problem with my Qosmio F10 recovery. It won't boot from the CD, I get a message "media test check the cable failure".
    I tried everything I could find here on this issue without any results. Then I read somewhere on this forum that this recovery cd would not work if the laptop has been repaired and has a new motherboard. This is excatly the case.

    I got a new motherboard and CD/DVD player put some time ago.
    How can I make it work again?


    > Then I read somewhere on this forum that this recovery cd would not work if the laptop has been repaired and has a new motherboard. This is exactly the case.

    Who replaced the motherboard? THE ASP?

    Well, usually the recovery CD should work after the replacement of the motherboard.
    I presume that the parts have been replaced with exactly the same parts and so it should t be a conflict between the recovery and the new motherboard CD.

    Have you tried to boot from another bootable Win XP or Linux CD? Check it!

  • Impossible to reinstall Vista after replacing the motherboard

    I have replace my mobo last week.  I still have the same hard disk, cpu and RAM.  After starting my computer to the top, she would not accept vista for some reason any (I don't remember why) he did without BSOD for half a second, and then restart.  I find out one of my RAM sticks, lock was not engaged.  I fixed that, but it did not work.  I tried the system repair and recovery system, but they do not work.  I tried to reinstall vista with my recovery disks.  I reformatted the hard drive and complete the installation.  When the computer reboots, it said I had a system configuration error and I had to contact my computer manufacturer.  Of course HP could not help me because I have replaced the motherboard. I'm able to run my conputer because I installed ubuntu later. Everything works. My question is, when I have windows 7, I have to but the commercial version or do the upgrade?

  • Qosmio F10: RAM upgrade issue after replacing the motherboard

    In 2006, when my F10 - 128 fell down as a fault of the video card, Toshiba has replaced the motherboard (865 PM) of my F10 by a new one with the video card installed in Go 6600.
    When I came back, I noticed that the same RAM modules have been installed (2 x 512 MB DDR 333 Mhz) as I previous had on the old motherboard.

    Then, I assumed that I could easily upgrade to DDR2 RAM, I realized that this type of RAM supported by the new motherboard installed (915 PM?). But the modules DDR2 Ram (Kingston 1 GB SODIMM (KVR533D2S4 - 1 G) 533 MHz) that I ordered is simply not in the storage media... The notch in the module is placed differently that the modules of RAM DDR.

    If the jury has been replaced by a newer version, with the video card Go 6600 (PCIexpress), how is, I have a Council that can not support DDR2?

    Here, I am really confused. Someone at - it advice please?

    > If the jury has been replaced by a newer version, with the video card Go 6600 (PCIexpress), how is, I have a Council that can not support DDR2?
    I think the jury is still supported DDR2 memory modules, but the allocation of the memory pins could be different.

    You should contact the ASP in your country and ask for the compatible modules.

  • How to re-enable Windows 7 after replacing the motherboard.

    I managed to replace the motherboard in an Acer Aspire v3 and all is well (or almost).

    Only problem is that Windows 7 requires now that I'm using an illegal copy of Windows.

    I know that the reason is that the version of Windows OEM is selected with the original motherboard.

    I talked to both supports of Microsoft and Acer support several times but neither can or reactivates my windows. Is it really to do I have to pay for a new product key as a consequence of a repair?


    That said, that the next question is if I can solve the problem by buying a new product key?

    Yes, look at this response from Microsoft.

  • Reactivate Windows 7 after replacing the motherboard

    I had to replace the motherboard. I have a 3-license Windows 7, installed copy on 3 machines (including this one). Windows tells me I have to reactivate, but the system of automatic phone won't let me because he thinks he's already on 3 machines. I can't find a way to learn how to talk to a person to explain. There was a previous answer saying to call the activation number but not to choose all the guests, but who never goes to a live person; the fair guests get an angry sounding, and finally he told to go away and come back when you're ready to do it properly.

    How can I get a real person to explain this?

  • Satellite P850-12Z: No. Wake up on LAN and no BT after replacing the motherboard


    I got a Satellite P850-12Z Code: PSPKBE
    Recently, the support of Toshiba replaced my motherboard

    I thought that WAKE ON LAN is disability, and my Bluetooth does not work.
    I go to Toshiba Bluetooth programs and not work

    Can anyone help me?.
    Thank you


    > Recently the support from Toshiba has replaced my motherboard
    In my opinion, you should get in touch with the guys from service again once who replaced / fixed on your laptop.
    The laptop should work properly once the service has replaced a faulty part. If it s not the case, you guys should check once again!

    I put t know what card WLan do you currently use, but AFAIK the original build in WiFi card was Intel and this wireless network adapter supports BT as well.

    So I think you should ask the guys once again unites what s wrong with you

  • XP Home OEM locked fixation after replacing the motherboard

    I am repairing a HP Pavilion with XP home SP3 locked to the motherboard fried as a favor to a friend.  My friend insists on XP and wants / needs to preserve installed programs & data on the disk (which is always good when tested elsewhere).  He has some company reprogramming s/w radio, which only works on XP.  We know that it will buy a commercial version.  I can't find what really works, said that it can be upgraded to XP Pro (that he would) but which covers only SP1.  My proposed seller says House cannot be upgraded to Pro without a complete reinstallation and did not oem home home retail.  XP Mode under W7 pro is not an option, if the serial port-> time of radio is not quite right, expensive business radios becomes expensive bricks and it will not run the risk as it will be with XP on new MB/CPU.  There current image backups, but they are always blocked, of course.  The drive passes the test of the provider (in another machine, of course).

    Can XP Home SP3 OEM evolve into XP Pro SP3 without a reinstall (i.e. reformatting & install)?  Can XP Home SP3 OEM be 'upgraded' to XP Home SP3 detail without having to reinstall?  Is there a better way (with XP) to solve this problem?

    Thank you!

    Final result: after the installation of the new motherboard, the installation of XP Pro SP3 retail disc does not recognize the installed XP home SP3, said that he was not an operating system on the partition and did not offer an option to upgrade.  The software provider was right, and the article cited above wrong, at least for SP3-> SP3 on this particular configuration.

    Then, I started from the original hard disk and attempted an activation of the phone, which didn't.  The robovoice said of trying to update the license key, that I made using one on the COA, then try activation phone even once.

    It worked.  There are more drivers to dl and install, but the box still works with a new MB and dual core CPU without a reinstall or OS update.

    So despite all the stories about tattooed motherboards and cannot reactivate XP if they are replaced, the real recovery was relatively simple.
