Satellite M40x-149 - icons on the bigger apeared office

Hi there, hope someone can help me.

I booted up my laptop today and the icons on the desktop appears larger. I have a click with the right button on the desktop then went properties SETTINGS and noticed that the highest resolution I could get is 1024 x 768, but when I checked the specifications of my computer online, I found that should be by as high as 1280 x 800.

My laptop is a satellite M40x-149. The cursor goes down to 800 x 600 to 1024 x 768 there is no inbetween.
I tried restoring the system, but in vain.

Help please


This looks like the display driver needs to be updated. Please see the Toshiba page for an update: decision-making supported Downloads & => Download drivers

Before installing the latest version, you must remove the old one. Then restart the laptop and now to install the most recent version.

Normally if the display driver is installed correctly, you should be able to choose the higher screen resolution.

    If there is no possibility try test your WLAN functionality with another network wireless (friend or maybe in your company). On this path, you should be sure if the problem occurs only with your WLAN.

    Try to install the driver for your WIRELESS Intel network card. You can find it under

  • Satellite M40X-149: where a memory module?


    I have a satellite M40X-149. I believe that my laptop has a faulty memory - gel randomly, sometimes will not start sound cmos etc. However when I opened the plastic lid it seems to be an empty memory slot. Assume that the memory is either on board or possibly under the keyboard as in some other models of Toshiba.

    Could someone tell me first where it is and also if it can be replaced. If it cannot be replaced, is it possible to disable it and use the empty accommodation?

    The machine is out of warranty so take it apart is not a problem

    Thanks in advance


    Yes, you are right. The laptop supports 2 locations in memory, but only one is scalable user.
    This means that the other is hidden somewhere under the keyboard!
    But if you remove the keyboard or any parts, you will lose the warranty.
    Therefore the slot is called scalable user because the common user could insert the module without having to open Notepad.

    The laptop can be upgraded up to 2048 MB. If one slot can candle 1024Mo!

  • Satellite L300 Wireless icon has the Cross Red but connected - SOLUTION

    Satellite L300. Home Premium Windows 7 32.

    Updated the wireless driver Atheros to the download area of Toshiba (the newest driver released on 11/27/11). After the reboot, the icon in the notification area wireless shows with red cross through it even if it is connected. Not a big deal but annoying.

    Corrected by:
    (Note: you must take note of your routers WEP key before doing this and if SSID is not it broadcasts)

    1. go on the network and sharing Center
    2. click on manage networks wireless on the left-hand menu
    3. highlight your connection and remove it.
    4. stop and restart the network connections service (to go to the Services console right-click on computer in the start menu and click on manage.) Expand Services and Applications, click Services).
    5. reconnect to your network by choosing from the list of available and entering the WEP key (or use him manually add... option if you must enter the SSID).
    6. If still the same then restart and reconnect to your network.

    Worked for me.

    Alternatively you can try of course to roll back to the old driver.

  • Is satellite A350 - touchpad icon on the desktop - it OK?

    I have a dell touchpad icon on my Satellite A350 laptop desk.

    I think that memoryit said Alps pointing device, when I put the cursor on the icon in the notification area. IM assuming he's changed when I have the drivers updated some weeks ago with uniblue.

    I'd like to know if this is right, should it be there?

    The touchpad still works, but I mainly use a wireless mouse. Just to clear things up, I have a laptop of toshiba a350.

    Thanks for any help

    In General, if there is no problem with the functionality of mobile it's OK but I don t understand why you make updates with uniblue if all required drivers are available on the Toshiba download page.

    In my opinion, you must delete all the stuff non-Toshiba laptop and make sure that you use the last orders of the Toshiba download page.

  • Satellite M40X-112: malfunction of the keyboard after you emptied a cup of tea

    Good evening to everyone.

    My girlfriend has emptied her cup of tea on his portable Satellite M40x-112.

    Now everything works except the keys R, F, V, Fn.

    Does anyone have experience with such a problem? The laptop is still not out of warranty.
    So, I don't want to open it to clean the keys by behind.

    So any advice or tips or something else (with the exception of the stupid remarks) would be useful.

    Thank you...


    HEY Bela,

    If you're lucky then spilt tea will only have caused a short-circuit in the keyboard itself and won't not flowed through to the motherboard. In this case, it would be possible to clean the keyboard or have it replaced by an authorized Service partner (to maintain the guarantee).

    Unfortunately, you will not be between the ab and do you much because it will be dismantled and that would invalidate the warranty.

    Kind regards

  • Satellite P300 - blinking icon to the Start button and the gel

    My high school daughter years showed me his homework in WORD was starting to show different symbols flashing all the time on the page. I suggested she reboot Satellite P300 - 01, and since then, we have not been able to go beyond the base of office.
    The Start button (or office) flashes continuously and we cannot enter in all programs at all.
    I'm very grateful for any assistance.

    The P300 is only 2 months old.


    Believe me, it is really not easy to say what is happening with this laptop. as a first step, you can try to start Notepad using F8 and enter safe mode.

    If these will be works, start System Restore utility and attempt to restore the operating system on time earlier. Perhaps one day before all this began. I hope that you will be able to use it again as before.

    If this isn't the case, please let us know.

  • Satellite M40X-149 - typing question

    My wife is having a problem with some letters by typing on the internal keyboard, the keyboard was changed, but the problem persists. If it uses the following keys that several letters are typed, but not every time, I thought it was the heat associated with, but sometimes it happens as soon as the laptop is on, sometimes it's okay for a short period.

    The affected keys are:-q s d g,. [] PgDn Alt all ideas, an external keyboard works fine, but using one is very troublesome, a laptop with an external keyboard is a desktop computer.

    If you use an internal keyboard brand new but the problem persists perhaps is defective keyboard controller. It can be verified by the service. In this case the repair can be quite expensive.
    I put t know how your wife is using this old book but if he uses it on the small keyboard Office Wireless can be good solution.

  • Satellite M40X-149 the use with a digital projector HP 3130

    Hi, new to this, so apologies before you start!

    I have my M30 laptop and I am trying to link it to a new digital projector - a HP3130.
    I connected it, turned everything on, began a slide show on my laptop... toggled buttons FN/F5 (a screen comes up with three images on it, but not the choice on how to choose or use) and nothing appears on the screen.

    What should I do to make them work together?
    Any ideas please?
    Thank you very much.


    What you need to do is to switch to projector before you start any application.
    So when you see Office use only FN + F5 key combination to switch to the projector.
    When the desktop is displayed, it start the slide show.

  • Satellite M40x-149 - Question about RAM upgrade

    Currently, I have 512 MB of RAM and want to upgrade. The jury of the RAM has two screws, should I take this and replace it with an upgrade of RAM, or leave the original in and put the new in the slot on top?

    Thank you.

    Hi RareOz,

    The amount of RAM you want after upgrade?
    If you want a maximum of 1 GB of RAM for example, you can leave the original RAM in and buy 512 MB additional RAM.

    But as far as I know M40x supports up to 2 GB of RAM, and that's why it would be necessary to install the module of RAM of 1 GB in each slot. That's why you need two new modules.

    The specification is PC2700 SO - DIMM DDR - RAM.
