Satellite M40: Hibernation Mode does not work

Hi all

My satellite M40 does Hibernate. If I choose the Hibernate function, my screen tells me that the laptop is in hibernation. But then after that it is not closed in hibernation, not he again! I can't Hibernate! Sleep mode functions! A few days ago I had uninstalled by mistake "common modules", but then I reinstalled it. Could someone tell me what drivers are needed for the hibernation?

Is this a driver problem? And why Windows checks my HD every other time I start my laptop. I found no other problems then the hibernation and verification of the HD. Do I have to uninstall all the Toshiba drivers, including common modules and reinstall all the new? It would solve my problem? Or should I just try with a BIOS update!

Best regards and thanks for your help!


I think that the resettlement of the damaged common modules might be a reason why hibernation doesn t work properly.
To my knowledge, the common modules are very important for the good condition of all Toshiba Utilities market.
The Toshiba Power Saver controls standby and hibernation. So I guess it's also the common modules.
But the common modules must be installed in a first time prior to installation of other public services.

It s very strange that the Windows checks each time you HDD. It seems that there are corrupted files or sectors on the HARD disk. Maybe that's why hibernation doesn't work because the hibernation saves the State on disk.

However, the new installation of operating system from the recovery CD Toshiba should solve your problem, but before you begin installation you need to make the backup of all your data and files.

PS: first try the chkdsk/r option. This should repair the bad sectors on the HARD disk. Maybe you do not need to reinstall the operating system.

  • Satellite M40: USB Audio does not work properly in ACPI mode

    Hi all
    I just bought a laptop Satellite M40 whose purpose is to be used as a portable audio system.
    For this, the USB audio devices are an excellent solution.

    Unfortunately, although it was working properly when recording (sound is perfect with all devices compatible USB Audio, I have tested), there is a problem in reading that I had a lot of clicks and POPs.

    After a lot of research trying and google, I solved the problem by changing the computer ACPI PC Standard mode.
    This is a workaround.

    But this way, I don't remember what my status of battery, and my laptop does not shut down automatically.
    Actually, my laptop is no longer run as a laptop :(

    I suspect a very serious problem in a Toshiba components management. In particular, I wouldn't be surprised to be told that freeze the cords of some regular system of court management, and therefore the 10ms buffers audio USB fall in against the recess.

    This would be so much bother me if I were not part of the technical support team of the company that launches also a few new audio USB products who will not fail to work correctly with laptops.

    My question is:
    Is there a driver / updating bios that gets rid of this problem?
    If a person of Toshiba technical support to address this issue directly with me, I'd be happy to help, as I am personally and professionally concerned.

    Thanks in advance.

    I put t know what USB audio device you use, but most of the USB audio devices cannot use the USB power. These devices have need of an external power supply of A.C and especially this external power supplies are delivered with the USB audio device.

    Also, I read on some sites that the pop occurs sometimes due to non synchronicity of the modules different buffers or / and of the use of certain applications in parallel.

    The computer ACPI PC Standard mode change is one of the many solutions and proposals
    You can check some patches from Microsoft. Check if all updates from Microsoft are installed.
    Also change the performance options in the options of the system to adjust for best performance.
    Disable Windows messenger.
    Virtual memory should be set to custom size and initial size and maximum size must has the same value (ie. 512/512)
    In the system.ini should the vcache is also the same: MinFileCache = 16384, MaxFileCache = 16384
    Disable the peripherals such as scanner, printer.

    As you can see, these issues could occur on all computers (desktop and laptop) and it s is not a problem of Toshiba. Also, contact the manufacturer for support external audio device and detailed information.

    Good luck

  • Graphics card on Satellite M40-197 (PSM40E) does not work properly

    I have a portable Satellite M40-197 (PSM40E) with ATI Radeon X 300 graphics display.

    The problem I have is when the laptop is turned on, until windows XP THAT starts, the screen is black as you would expect.

    But there are also about 12 lines on the screen. Each line consists of (from top to bottom) 4 pixels of different colors. The rest of the screen is as you would expect.

    Once Windows XP is running are several broken lines (color lines, depends on the color of office) through the screen at all levels up and down the screen.

    I updated the BIOS of the laptop and installed the latest ATI drivers.
    This made no difference.

    Anyone know if it is a faulty graphics card (is the adapter on the system board or it own map). Is it possible to update the graphics BIOS? Any help would be appreciated.

    Thank you very much.


    This really sounds like a hardware problem, I had the same problem some time ago with my Satellite 5200 903. They said to the servicecenter
    me, that the graphics card was defective and they replace. After replacing everything will work perfectly again.

    Thus, it would be important that your platform to a local servicepartner for a hardwarecheckup.

    HereĀ“s a good place where you can find the nearest the servicepartner in your country:

  • Satellite A100: Recovery DVD does not work

    I want to restore my Toshiba Satellite A100 laptop to its original factory condition, but the DVD that comes with the package of recovery does not work...

    I have load to start computer press F12, and it starts on the DVD. It says "Loading RAMDISK Image", after which I am told by Toshiba customer service there should be options to clean up the hard drive or restore Windows XP.

    However, after VIRTUAL disk, I see a cursor on a black screen, and then the laptop off and restarts. After the connection, NO CHANGES made...

    What is the problem with that? How can I really use this recovery DVD?
    Someone help me please.

    Thank you.


    The recovery procedure is not difficult.
    Just try to boot from the recovery CD or DVD and follow the Guide on the screen line.

    Your problem is very strange. You have created all the partitions on the HARD drive?
    I put really t know why your recovery CD doesn't work properly, but I think you should try to completely format the disk (also partitions), then try to boot from the recovery CD.

    Don't forget that the laptop is in the boot mode. (don t mix the standby or hibernation mode)

  • Satellite L505 - WPA2-PSK does not work, but works of WPA - PSK


    I have a Satellite L505 and I tried to use WPA2-PSK security to connect to my Netgear DGN2000 router, since I read that only this authentication allows speed Wireless-N, but it does not work. I chose it as the mode to use on the router and Windows 7 64 bit on my laptop, so everything should work properly. If I set everything up to use WPA - PSK, then I can connect us, but the connection is terrible, even when I put the phone right next to the router. It indicates the quality of the signal is excellent and that it is connected to 54Mbs, but if I set up a ping to the router I can see over time, it goes up to 4 seconds and continually to expire. This means that the internet is unusable wireless.

    For this reason, I was hoping I could get Wireless N work and I hope that the connection would be better. Someone can tell me why WPA - PSK works but not WPA2-PSK? (I tried versions of the AES and TKIP)


    Hmm... You have written anything on your OS... :(

    On Windows XP, you need to install the Windows Update KB917021 as you can read here:

    I'll try to updated the WLAN driver. You can get the latest version on the Toshiba site.

    Finally and above all it s always advisable to update the firmware on your router. You can get on the page of manufacturing of the router where you should find a changelog too.

  • Private browsing mode does not work

    I've been without a pc for a while, now have a new with Windows 10. Just downloaded latest Firefox. I put it to always open in private browsing mode. But it does not work. When I close the browser, and then re - opening, my start page is not display the mask or indicate private browsing. I can get it in the usual way, just right-click on the icon that gives you options to open the new window or a private.
    I tried to turn on/off the navigation mode private the several times, still no luck.

    Probably, you won't see the purple mask of private browsing mode when you are in permanent PB mode because all windows are automatically in PB mode.
    You will see the mask when Firefox is started in normal mode and you open a new private window.

    You can use an extension for private browsing mode support tab.

  • Satellite U920T - function keys does not work after update to Win 10

    Hello, good morning / evening...

    I use (U920T satellite) and recently updated my Windows 10 Tablet
    but after that, the function keys, volume, brightness, key FN and even the backlight does not work anymore!

    I tried to restore the system and update the driver software but nothing has worked...

    I use these keyboard shortcuts all the time and now it's really hard without them!

    What is the problem? What should I do?

    The problem is that U920T satellite is not listed as Win 10 support unit and, therefore, drivers earn 10 Toshiba and software that controls the FN keys is not released.
    But as far as I know using the FN keys, system of Toshiba and the Support of Flash Card Utility driver must be installed.

    For all Toshiba units win 10 supported, the drivers can be downloaded from this page:

    Maybe you can try the drivers released for other models of portable Win 10 supported...
    I'm not sure if the software will be compatible with your model of U920T, but its certainly worth a try...
