Satellite Pro 6100 does not recognize the single battery external power
Whenever I have start Satellite Pro 6100 Win XP Pro with standard battery mounted and connected to the power supply computer laptop does not recognize the ext battery supply single supply and during 'start-up' goes into hibernation.
By pressing the power on button laptops "wake up" and indicate that the battery is empty or may not even decide when completely loaded, then says connect the station even if still connected, looking under Toshiba console when it runs shows running on battery when still in the power of the ext?
I have two batteries and both give the above symptoms even when I remove ext of laptop power always runs with power supply by battery but no light orange or green for battery.
Is your AC adapter malfunctions or there is something wrong with the power supply to electronic s laptop.
In the first case you could purchase a new compatible AC adapter and could check if the laptop can run successfully.
The second possibility is a serious hardware problem, but in this case, the laptop must be checked by an authorized technician.
When I try and load XP Pro SP3 (32 bit) it will not install because it doesn't have SATA drivers. I downloaded the drivers and have an external floppy drive to install drivers by pressing F6. My question is the machine is listed as 64-bit and XP Pro is 32-bit. Choose the drivers ICH8M 32 or 64 bits. IE is the 32 or 64 bit on ICH8M see hardware or operating system. Computer's Satellite Pro A200 PSAE4E-01700WEN.
Any help appreciated
If you are using the 64 bit OS, then also use 64-bit drivers.
I found very nice HowTo from Toshiba.
Check it! It s certainly interesting and should be useful.

My computer will not accept blank CD - R disc so I can burn data on them, but my computer will not accept blank DVD discs that I want to be able to use to store more data.
In the drive of my computer D reads "DVD - RW", I guess so, but am not sure that this means that my pc should be usable with DVD-R and DVD - RW discs but it do not accepts / acknowledges these when I put a try to burn something on them.
My computer also does not accept / recognize DVD + R Virgin discs as I have tried those, just in case they might work.

Have you also tried to burn DVD-R discs?
I had also some problems with DVD + R discs, so I changed to a DVD-R and since all works well! :)
I don't use Windows Media Player to burn discs, I use CD Burner XP. It is a freeware tool, very small and fast. It works on most versions of Windows, and you should try it too!
Also check the Toshiba page for an update of the firmware!
I just bought a new model slimline DVD rewritable AD - 7540A, brand Sony NEC Optiarc. When it is plugged into the computer laptop and for the POST, it appears the 'IDE #1 error' message after the operating system starts, I am unable to open the drawer and no CD/DVD can be read.
I checked this drive on another laptop from another brand, and it works fine, so the problem is not in the drive itself. Could someone help me?
Thanks in advance.
The problem is simple.
Your phone does support not all readers of CD/DVD slimline because different or bad master/slave/c-salt settings.
The IDE #1 error message indicates that the BIOS cannot recognize the device connected to the #1 IDE controller.
In your case, the solution is simple; you need to buy a compatible CD/DVD player and supported
Mayen a user manual would provide details on the management of records.
If not, then contact the ASP in your country and ask some compatible devices!
At soon buddy
the question is:
Why my Satellite A110-294 does not recognize the wireless card?
I re - install Xp PRO with all the drivers.
I have try all the drivers Wireless: Wlan intel + proset intel atheros wlan + wlesscmgr
I don't understand, can you help me?
To my knowledge, the A110-294 uses the Atheros WLan card and therefore the Atheros Wlan dirver should be the right one.
You can find the latest driver for Atheros WLan here:
Just a question;
You see the local network card in Device Manager? I mean, you should see an Ethernet controller or an unknown device in the network adapters
The driver is missing, then the device must be marked with a yellow exclamation point
I have a Satellite Pro 6100 when I press the power button and HDD lights up briefly then powerlight blinks.
It seems to Flash a pattern: on (2 sec) flashes (2 seconds) then off (about 8 times)
What he told me? No fan, no display no hardrive is active.
Food is ok because it load battery.
I bought it as it would be something easy to fix ideas?
It sounds bad
Generally, the power led will blink due to a malfunction of the equipment.
The LED provides a microcode and only the technician can read this code.
A common user is not able to read.
Maybe you'll be able to read this code, but you won't find any description about the meaning of the code.
I recommend you contact the technician in your country
But try this:
Remove the battery and unplug the AC adapter.
Wait severla times and then plug in the battery and plug in the AC adapter.
If this does not help, you have aks, a complementary technician...
OK, here are the details:
System: Computer PORTABLE of Acer Aspire 1700 Pent4, 2 GB of RAM, 80GB (3.5 "full-size, trainee) IDE HD [this is the original HD on this laptop of size important which is designed to use disks 3.5" hard].
Initial situation: Windows XP Pro (SP3 integrated) installed on HDD of 80 GB and works without poblems. BIOS does NOT show the ability of the intern HD in the BIOS screen. BIOS reports only the model and the serial number of the HD, and there is no options to specify the HD type/format (e.g., MLA, etc.)
Available: Win XP Pro bootable CD slipstreamed with SP3; It is tested and verified work well to install PC or laptop!
When running XP Pro on a partition internal 80 GB HD, and when I join a brand new WD 500 GB IDE HD via USB, HD is recognized correctly. I can partition and copy data on the HD 500 GB with no problems!
When I replaced the old 80 GB HD with the new HD 500 GB HD interning on the laptop, I have the following problems:
1. I can NOT boot into Windows XP Pro (SP3) which was Ghost on the HD 500 GB of the old 80 GB portable HD it recharges, and if I try the console recovery or secure boot, then the laptop restarts also.
1B. I have Ghost xp partition to 80 GB HD to a piece of spare HD (40 GB) and replaced the 80 GB with the 40 GB HD and was able to start the laptop without problem. So the problem is NOT related ghost!
2. I can't perform a clean install of Windows XP Pro (SP3 integrated) because Windows XP Setup recognizes the HD 500 GB GB 131 HD. Therefore, the remaining capacity is not recognized.
3. I can NOT perform the installation of Windows XP pro (SP3 integrated), even if I have previously partition new HD 500 GB by attaching it to a free desktop PC and use Partition Magic, partitioner of Paragon Disk or other partitioning tools. After partitioning prior, when the 500 GB HD is installed on the laptop (as a trainee HD), then win xp installation lists quality HD of GB 131 and lists the existing partitions as corrupt!
4. Curiously, if I use Knoppix, Debian, Ubuntu or linux boot CD Mint and start the laptop computer with one of these linux distributions, then the linux installer recognize the HD properly during the phase of recognition of material and later during the phase partitioning HD, the linux system to report a full capacity of 500 GB available for partitioning. In addition, when there are partitions, partitioning linux program then lists these partitions properly as well!
Considering the 4 points and especially MS Windows XP PRO (integrated with SP3, which should recognize HD with sizes exceeding 137 GB limit - from MS says you must be at least XP SP1 to overcome the size 137 GB limit - and that the different distributions of linux can see the full-size HD 500 GB with no problems) which is exactly the problem with Win XP? Why it does not recognize the full capacity? And how to win xp recognizes a 500 GB capacity, if the new HD is attached to the laptop via USB as an external drive when running XP PRO (SP3) of the 80 GB internal HD?
so... Can anyone sheds light on the issue with Win XP Pro installation on HD 500 GB IDE?
Hi Palcouk and Doc,
I think that's the final answer!
Although, there is a mixture of simple to complex responses to the problem at hand, what it all comes down is that there is a significant difference between the installation of Windows XP and Linux installer program. The XP installation program needs help from the BIOS to deal with HD, and if the BIOS does not support, XP not has no facility to remedy the situation. OTOH, most of Linux new kernels rely on the BIOS for a limited number of extended, but communicate directly with the hardware, in this case, with the HD and therefore manages the material accordingly.
It seems among users of dual-booting (win/linux) using old PCs, it is a matter of very pretty. What they end up doing is using the first 137 GB that is seen by the BIOS without problem for XP (either as a single partition or divided into several partitions), and the rest of the space is used for Linux because linux has no problem.
I guess that it really nails the problem with my laptop to a BIOS NON-lba-48-bit!
Then close this thread as answered or matter who has more to say about this?
P.S.: It was very nice meeting you fellows and appreciate all the help and tech expertise.
I just bought a Toshiba Satellite 1900 (PS192E) and place an old 20 GB HDD from an old laptop.
When I boot, the screen is in VGA 16 color mode, it recognizes the DVD player, but does not recognize the CD/DVD when inserted. I tried to install and run the utility "driver robot" Toshibas, but the display is such that I see all of the screen to start the search.
If there is someone out there who could give me some advice, I would be extremely grateful.
Thank you very much
OK, you have installed the disk HARD of another laptop but too format the HARD drive? I mean if the HARD drive performed from another laptop, you need to reinstall Windows because now you have other hardware installed.
What version of Windows is it?
If you want to install a driver for the graphics card go into Device Manager and select Update driver.
Hi there I hope someone can help me
I have a Satellite L30-105 PSL33E, which came with 1 GB of ram installed (2 x 512 MB made by TeamViewer)
and it's terribly slow with vista, not to mention programs.
The toshiba website says max RAM is 2 GB, so I bought a Kingston 1 GB ram chip to increase the ram to 1.5 GB. I thought should try before moving to 2 GB
However after installing memory vivid it's show still only 1 GB in windows and in the bios (894 + the rest for video). It has the latest available BIOS on the site 3.10, yet still does not recognize the chip.
The chip is installed in the lower slot, including the original 512 at the top (closest to the keyboard)
Are limited to only some of the Satellite of RAM?
The old subjects indicate if kingston does not work try corsair.
Other topics suggested to change slots
Others suggest that it may have only two of the same ram chips in IE 2 x 512 or 2 x 1 GB, you may not have 1 of each
Can anyone help? everyone knows about similar problems?
I will not buy any more RAM to try different brands for the same issue to occur
The L30-105 is able to manage the 1024Mo modules in each location it should be able to update the RAM up to 2 GB.
> Why the RAM 1 GB module cannot be recognized?
Perhaps the two modules are not compatible with each other
I would recommend using two identical modules of the same manufacturing
I use Kingston modules, they are ok for me
I have a problem because my satellite A200-1AE with Microsoft Vista does not recognize the USB 2.0 flash drive. He asks me a program/software!
The same USB works without problem on other computers with vista!
Someone knows what to do?
First of all, you must disconnect all USB devices and must remove the USB ports and controllers in the Device Manager.
After this procedure, you must restart the laptop. After a new restart the Vista operating system should recognize the USB ports and should reinstall USB drivers again.
Then you must update the Vista to the State! All fixes and patches must be installed. Please note that you will have to visit the MS Update site for all patches
Notes; MS has released a beta of Vista SP1. I installed it on my laptop and it has solved several problems.
I want to replace the original HDD 160 GB with a 120 GB Samsung ssd 750 evo but bios and win 10 does not recognize the ssd drive as an external drive connected via a usb connection, so I couldn't create an image of my internal hard drive. Is there a way to clone my hard drive SSD, so I can exchange the disc later? I need to update the bios, install a missing driver, etc. ?
I used two different connections: one is a 2.5 "SATA case disc that I used with a disk 2.5" HARD and works very well with the HARD drive and the other is SATA/IDE connector combination with cables for SATA and power and none of these works. I read in another forum during my research that the Aspire One d255 doesn't recognize any external SSD connected through a USB either. Since my netbook has no data, and I had just a pure 10 Windows installed on his drive HARD internal, I removed the 160 GB HARD drive and replaced by a 120 GB SSD and installed another Windows own 10. It worked and my system boots now in less than 20 seconds. We can close this thread now since I now have a faster machine fully function. Thank you!
I have a Toshiba laptop Satellite L30 113.
It has 512 MB of RAM and therefore struggled to run Windows Vista, so I bought another 1 GB of RAM.
It's DDR2 553 MHZ (PC4200.
The problem I have is that the laptop does not recognize both DIMMs, i.e. the old 512 MB and the new 1 GB when they are in the whole PC. I tried the two DIMM individually in both slots and there is no problem, but when I install both the system sees just 1 GB. I tried the DIMMs around two ways but without success.
Did I miss something?
They should be the same size as in the bad old days?
What is going on?
> I tried the two DIMM individually in both slots and there is no problem, but when I install both the system sees just 1 GB
Seems that the two RAM modules are not completely compatible...
I've read several times on these issues and to be honest it s are not uncommon
I advise you to buy two identical RAM modules ad then to try again
I'm afraid there is no other solution for your problem of m.
I have a L655. Most of the time it works perfectly fine. Sometimes when I turn on my computer, it does not recognize my wireless card. He considers that it is not at all.
The icon in the status bar says that there is no cable ethernet plugged in and nothing on the wireless.
Usually this icon is not present, and one for the wireless is (whether it is connected or not and if there are connections available or not). In the device manager there is nothing for the wireless card.
Under network card it has only ethernet. Its as if it does not exist.
Basically the way to solve this problem is by restarting simply my computer until he figures it.
Sometimes, it can take 5 or more times.
Any help please?
What satellite L655-xxx you have exactly?
As far as I know there are different models with different wireless network cards.
Your BIOS is up to date? Please check this box.
So now to a few proposals of solution:
First of all that I recommend to check if the update of the Wlan driver would improve the Wlan functionality.
In addition, you must deactivate the energy saving feature for Wlan in Device Manager and Windows 7 power options as well.
Hi all, after 3 days of searching for any type of information I've found this site and I hope that someone can help me.
I have a Satellite A300-1J1, and had to do a complete reinstall of Windows using my recovery disk that was provided with the laptop (Vista Home Premium).
In any case, the installation went well and he had restarted and said I had to activate Windows is not a problem, I thought looked under laptop for key typed in there and it will not recognize the CD as being for Vista Premium key. Now how is that possible that the disc that came with the laptop and the CD key is there?
Any help is greatly appreciated
I know it may seem stupid now, but your story is somewhat strange. Why?
To the first Satellite A300 laptop computers are never shipped with recovery DVDs. Recovery DVDs must be created by the owner of the laptop. All A300 laptop come with what is called HARD disk image. AFAIK some A300 laptop computers come with an additional CD/DVD but it is recovery of Windows XP Home or Vista 64-bit edition, but laptop always comes with Vista Home Premium 32 - bit (recovery of HARD drive image).
So the question is what installation media you are using exactly? Is - this support recovery, that you created yourself or a version of Microsoft?
Original Toshiba recovery image is created for each laptop model separately and should not be enabled.
Recovery image can not be downloaded. If you want to have another copy, you must order it under https://backupmedia.toshiba.eu/landing.aspx
I've set up the 2nd tray in system preferences by checking the box for an additional tray, although it seems sometimes to uncheck because when I go back to it is checked, it is not. Somewhere I found the Source setting and I saw 2 trays, but now I don't remember where it was to check again. However, when I try to use the parameters to define a default tray and lock in the status bar on the printer itself, it simply does not list the second set as being there. So there is nothing to choose or define. At one point, even though I didn't click to print, it seemed as if he was going to print something but then says there is more paper in the tray. But there was.
