Satellite Pro 4200 - need help for Windows 95 & drivers!

Hello! Years ago my mother, I bought a fully functional, great Toshiba Satellite Pro 4200 working the place taken sales... Since that day, my laptop has not been used. But now, I found a few games nostalgic childhood of mine, who works only with Windows 95. I wanted to play, and I decided to install Windows 95 to my laptop. The installation process went well, it was a bit complicated at first because of the startup disk and such. But I managed to install a working fully Windows 95 in my laptop! But it gives me only 16 colors and no option to choose the resolution! So I found out that I need to install the video card drivers.

I have google a bit and discovered that my laptop has chart S3 Savage IX. I failed to find the appropriate drivers for it. Until I went to your site to support canada and traveled for a pilot of similar laptops. I found Windows 95-98 compatible drivers for my card. The installation process was easy, is well past and fine! I then could choose 256 colors and another resolution (which I did not actually change...). I changed the colors and then restarted. Everything went well until windows 95 logo screen came suddenly to the top and after that I only saw colors and black borders. He did not start Windows properly. What can be wrong? At I have download the wrong drivers? Windows told me 2 different versions, IX and MX. I tried them both. Tried to change the Hz also, but nothing helped. Please help me!

Thanks in advance,
Jupstejuho of Finland.

P.S Sorry for my bad English...

Edit: OH, BTW is the exact version of my OS: Microsoft Windows 95 Finnish b with USB support (I Don t know the version very very accurate actually... but I just mention that it is version B of the operating system.) Could this be the problem? I also tried the same driver downloaded from toshiba europe Web site, but it won't let me just install the drivers 'already installed' and they really are. I did not uninstall them, I tried to run the uninstall utility, but it doesn't work...!

Maybe chose a resolution not supported?
This happens to you at all resolutions, or only one?

Normally, you can download all the drivers on the European site of Toshiba, but I only find Satellite Pro 4220, 4240 and so far but not 4200.

However, have you tried to do a BIOS update?
Before installing the graphics driver, you need to update the version of DirectX.
You can find the Toshiba site:

Good bye

  • Toshiba Satellite Pro M50 comaptible - tools for WIndows 7

    Hello world
    I own Satellite Pro M50, listed as a model on the official website of Toshiba - drivers and tools provided by Toshiba are only for XP and several of them for Vista.

    I installed Windows 7 32 bit and I am very satisfied with the speed of the computer now. Windows 7 was able to detect my devices (screen, usb, wifi, lan) and drivers updated successfully. Everything seems to work OK now.

    Problem is with Toshiba tools.
    MasterG (to whom I am very grateful, but I have not found a way how to address him directly) advised another user with the old model (M100-221) to use PPV and Flash Card Utility Support for series L500.
    (for more details:

    I tried, and the utility of Support Flash Card worked. Now, I can use the Fn key.

    There are also a few features Toshiba I would run: Power Saver, utility TouchPad and so on. How could I know what model has tools that could function as a substitute for my only or was it just a coincidence that it worked?

    Thank you very much in advance, and greetings to the whole community of toshiba, I'm really pleased with this support forums.


    Hi Ben,

    It of Nice to hear that you have successfully install Windows 7 successfully on your Satellite Pro M50 and you also like the forum like me. :)

    What tools you want exactly?
    There are a few differences between XP and Windows 7 tools. For example, Power Saver already belongs to a package of added value, and you can find the parameters energy saver in Windows the Windows Management.

    The utility of touchpad you can download other laptops. AFAIK driver Synaptics and Alps Electric should work on all models, but you need to test, I n t have Satellite Pro M50.

    In addition a list of compatible tools does not for me. Just try it.
    Important is that you install Windows 7 versions or at least for Vista. I think that the XP don t work tools.

    Good luck! :)

  • Satellite C855-2CF - need help for install Windows 7

    Hello world!

    I bought a TOSHIBA Satellite C855-2CF *(PSKCAE-09K006HU).
    There's no OS installed previously. I want to install a Win 7, but so far without success.

    I found that some subjects, who said I should do in the BIOS and switch to the CMS UEFI boot, and another which said I have to disable secure boot, but I can't find these options in the BIOS.

    Where can I find them? Or is there something I should do more / before I access the BIOS?

    Thanks in advance for your support!


    Please read this:

    [BIOS configuration changes are necessary, if booting from external devices is required (Genuine Windows 8 units) |]

  • Satellite A500-19U - need help for games and the AC adapter / CC

    Heys guys.

    I got my new Satellite A500-19U and install games on it like COD4, assassin Creed, Batman, Mafia 2 .and much

    All of these games crashes & freezes after screen black or white, 3-5 Min & gimmea and this happenWHILE CONNECT the AC ADAPTER to charge the battery. While using the battery just fine, except some crashes after a long period of palying. Some time, he said (the display driver not responding) & sometimes the screen black or white. The only way to recover the laptop is ALT + CTRL + DELETE and wait until the game to recover & cases laptop stop responding & the only way is to hard reboot.

    The only one that works such fine bit is Battlefield Bad Company 2. Then I change the DirectX (setting.ini) of car in DirectX9.

    SP please any help on this matter. I think it's a video driver or a Windows 7 problem. And the specifications are:

    Processor: Inter Core 2 Due P7450 2.13 GHz

    VGA: Nvidia Geforce G210M with the driver from the Toshiba Site has also tested the latest driver from Nvidia Site Version: 258.96
    OS: Windows 7 64-bit [pre-installed]

    I think that its not big problem for Toshiba co.  :)

    Hi mate

    I think that it is a nuisance driver in most cases not entirely compatible graphics cards drivers are the reason why games dishes t working correctly.

    What to say; I think that the update of the driver is the key
    You will need to find a good driver version
    Toshiba pilot European page you can find the latest drivers published by Toshiba
    But this does not mean that these are the most recent drivers released by nVidia or ATI
    nVidia or ATI drivers are always different

    In order to check the drivers from nVidia page too.
    You can also try the version published on the Web site or
    But note; These are not tested drivers and use is at your own risk!

  • Satellite Pro 4200: need driver card PCMCIA Win98


    Driver with Ms issues I´m 4200 laptop computer series with win 98. I managed to find the display driver, but the driver for pcmcia card is missing. And I can't connect to internet because im using for internet access Wlan pcmcia card.
    I m writing this with my friends computer.

    Could someone help me please?


    AFAIK the PCMCIA port uses the common Windows drivers and so there is no driver PCMICA.

    In addition, you must enable the PCMCIA in the BIOS
    This should help to solve this problem.

    THX in advance for your help!



    Generally for touchpad no additional driver is necessary. The touchpad also works without a driver touchpad as the standard Windows driver will be used.
    Driver Touchpad is more important for special functions as virtual scrolling, change the tapping settings, etc.

    You can download all the drivers of Toshiba's official website: > support & downloads > download drivers

    But to look for in driver * Archives * because he old laptop s model.
    It s no driver 32-bit of Windows 7 available, but I've seen touchpad driver for Vista. It should work on Windows 7 too. :)

  • Need help for installing the drivers on Satellite A80

    I just reinstalled windows xp and have some problems to install my windows drivers. I lost my original cd and downloaded the drivers from your site. I followed the instructions but when I tried to find the driver for example the controller drivers network, windows can't find them. I placed them on my desk, so that shouldn't be the problem.

    I have a toshiba Satellite A80, with an nvidia card. If you would like more information just ask and i´ll try to give them, thank you for your effort

    The compatible network driver is placed on the page of Toshiba. I know, I checked the page.
    More like in the post above suggested, you must decompress the folder of the driver first before you start the installation of the driver.

    What you should also know, is that the proper installation order is necessary. Installation instructions, you will find on the Toshiba site. Download this document and follow the guide line.

  • Need help with Windows 7 drivers for Radeon HD 7670 m on a preinstalled Windows Pavilion g6-2300sy 8

    Hey, I recently bought a HP Pavilion g6-2300sy with Windows preinstalled 8 and decided to install Windows 7 on it instead, as I'm rates more familiar with it. Now I seem to be running into issues with the Radeon HD 7670 m laptop graphics card, since I can't find a driver that works for her. I tried several generic drivers AMD HD 7000 series, but none of them is not working - Windows continues to give the error code 43.

    How can I fix without going back to Windows 8? Any help would be really appreciated.


    For the g6-2300sy, use the W7 x 64 drivers and software for this model:

    For the graphics, you install only the AMD graphics driver. Do NOT install the Intel driver.  The AMD driver has the graphics for two video cards.
