Satellite Pro 6100 Wireless does not work after restoring from HARD drive

After that restore disks for installing a new HD and use and to update XP sp2, the Wireless does not work and if the card is installed XP hangs then works in fits and starts. If the card not in place, not bad at all.

Booting from a Linux CD, the card works perfectly! I assume that the driver is the problem. The wireless card is the original, an Agere MPC13A-20/R, with Toshiba p/n PA317U-1MPC.

I have found some drivers Agere, but am not sure

(1) if they are correct
(2) how to install since the machine works in a way limited with the card in place.

Any advice?


I checked the page of the pilot and the only available for Windows XP WLan driver is the driver of v.1.11.108 Agere.

(1) just try to install this driver. If the driver is not correct or is not compatible, then windows will not install the driver and you will receive a notification. You just have to try

(2) generally you may reinstall the driver from the Device Manager. Open network controller tree, and then you can reinstall the driver.

But this is only possible if the windows started successfully

PS: Have you checked the information of Microsoft Windows XP SP2 update on the page of the Toshiba driver.
I discovered that you need to update several utilities if you have installed SP2 on this laptop.

  • Satellite Pro U400 - BT does not work after installing Win 7


    I have a problem with my bluetooth device. I have Toshiba Satellite Pro U400.

  • Update of Vista 32 bit does not work after replacing the hard drive

    A month ago the hard drive of my computer (ACER Aspire 6920) had to be replaced. The disk image hard precedent (which includes the c: with Windows Vista Home Premium 32 bit, SP 2 build 6002) has been mirrored to the new hard drive. Everything seemed to work fine until I noticed that I don't have more updates from Microsoft. I tried a manual update and got the message that the update service was not working and I have to restart the computer. However, the Task Manager showed that the update service has been executed. Of course, I rebooted the computer, but nothing has changed.

    I found a whole bunch of recommendations for this issue in this forum, but nothing seems to work:

    • The Microsoft FixIT tool indicates a problem with the update of components, and then said that the problem had been solved successfully. However, the problem is still there and rerun the FixIt tool Gets the same message on a problem (yet) found and fixed.
    • I also stopped the update service, delete all content in Windows/C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution and restarted the service. without success.
    • I've temporarily disabled my security suite (Eset Smart Security 6) and tried the update. I also have fittings the folder C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution to the scope of the antivirus, without success. On the old hard drive, I used a different security suite so I thought that maybe the ESET (that I installed everything recently) could be the cause of the problem, but that doesn't seem to be the case.
    • I also followed the instructions provided by Microsoft at, but again, no change at all. However, it should be noted that registering some DLLs that Microsoft listed does not work (message that the DLL is not found or some server entry point (my translation, I'm using the German UI and don't know English good term; sorry) could not be found.)

    Http:// , I found another tool that supposedly can solve some problems of updating; I downloaded the version for Vista 32-bit, but it cannot install it on my computer (error code = 0xc8000247 during installation).

    So I'm really lost now what else to do. I would appreciate any suggestions. Please note that I am not technically very warned :)

    ARG, apologies.

    Was not aware that they had dropped support for Vista... (I myself have 'graduated' Vista earlier)

    The fact that you have not already installed TSRI is exactly your problem.

    Recent hard drives using 'Sectors 4 K', also known as 'Advanced Format Technology'.

    If the installed hard disk driver currently is not compatible with this specification,

    It will result in oddities like the status of the service Windows Update is not recognized correctly.

    Installation TSRI will fix this in most cases.

    Alternatively, if you are using Vista SP1 or later version (or 7 SP1), you can use the real driver.

    Since you are already updated to SP2, we will see if it is a viable solution.

    Go to: start-> Control Panel-> programs-> programs and features

    In the list of installed programs, locate and remove if found.

    -Intel Matrix Storage Manager

    -Intel Turbo Memory

    This should force your computer to go back to the real driver provided by Vista.

  • Satellite Pro 6100 keyboard does not work properly after repairs


    My 6100 Pro Sam just being away from usual mother board and power Board replacement with Toshiba, but now I have a strange keyboard problem.

    When I turn it on, all the keys are working. After a few minutes, '3' is not working, then 'r' fails, then '5', ' 7 ', ' 8',' 9 ', ' 0' to stop working. At this point, I can feel something very hot under the middle of the keyboard. A reboot and no keys work. Another reboot with the internal keyboard and an external keyboard to the PS2 is still defective (some keys work, others do not), but the outer one works properly.

    Now, if the pc has not obtained if hot as the middle of the internal keyboard, then, I would conclude that the keyboard was defective, but for his failure, slowly and sequentially like this and it fails at the same way every day (since Toshiba rebuild it!).

    Perhaps, internal keyboard controller overheating?
    Anyone know what this could be? :-(

    See you soon,.

    Right under the keyboard of your pro 6100 is the VGA graphics controller (the keyboard cable plugs on the same map). It is normal that this part become hot during use.

    It is strange that your problem appears after a while and not immediately.

    It could be just a bad relocation of the keyboard cable (it's a thin layer as a movie negative photo) which easily appears there, but... it may be something more serious, too. (Especially since you had done upgrade where the material had to be changed)

    I consult the service centre once more and ask for instructions how to deal with this. Do not ignore it (using an external keyboard instead of internal dysfunction) because he could end up in something more serious soon...



    P.S. Please keep us updated on your efforts

  • Satellite Pro A200: Wireless does not work


    Got a Satellite Pro A200 2 weeks and the wireless worked well.
    Then after a week there was a problem, try to connect. I was able to reboot the pc and he was able to connect.

    Now it just doesn't quite work.
    I can connect through the LAN and I have another laptop that connects to the router with no problems.

    I checked in the Device Manager, the wireless card works correctly and I've updated the drivers for it but no. - GB.

    Any help would be great.
    see you soon


    Try to remove the network adapter from Device Manager wireless.
    Then restart the computer and reinstall newest WLan driver that you can download on the page of the Toshiba driver!

    Second, you could try to set up the WiFi network using an Intel ProSet Utility (but only if you have a Wlan Intel card.)

    If you have an Atheros Wlan card, then try using the Atheros Client utility for configuring Wlan

  • Satellite Pro L550 - WLAN does not work after Installation Win 7/64 Pro News


    I installed a true Win 7 / 64 professional version full on my Satellite Pro L550-199, PSLW9E. Now, I can't turn on my WLAN. There is no such thing as the large buttons-FN. I tried a lot of driver, that I found on the Toshiba Support page.
    Whitch is the right, or Win 7 / 64 professional not supported with WLAN?
    How can I pass on WLAN without the FN key?



    To activate the WLan, you need to install the Wlan driver first.
    The wireless network card is recognized correctly in the Device Manager?
    Otherwise, install the WLan driver compatible; As much as I know the WLan card is Realtek RTL8191SE 802.11bgn

    Then once the Wlan card is recognized correctly, you must install the VAP (value added package) and Flash Cards support utility!
    These two tools are required to operate the FN keys and switch WLan using Fn + F8!

    Satellite L655-149


    Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit (factory installed)

    Recovery of HARD drive on drive D (factory installed)

    My old toshiba (MK5065GSX) 500 GB hard drive became too noisy and slow so I plan to replace it with the new drive hard toshiba (MK5059GSXP) 500 GB.

    I created USB Flash HARD drive recovery.

    I changed the SATA AHCI mode to compatibility IDLE

    assistance in this regard will be highly appreciated

    Set the BIOS to the default settings and try again.

  • Satellite L30: CD player does not work with the new HARD drive


    Just bought a new drive to HARD drive of 250 GB to transform my L30-115 has a home server.

    My problem is when both the new HARD disk drive DVD/CD-RW drive of origin are inserted into L30, the computer crashes and I can not even get into the BIOS (I have the latest edition).

    However, when I disconnect the CD player, system boots fine in a system of operating "plain" (command-line only) - BIOS recognizes very well and everything is fine. Idem: as I disconnect the HARD drive and connect the CD player, I am able to work (for example with a live linux system).

    The question is: * how to install a Windows operating system to a new HARD disk drive *? There is no option to boot from USB. What else can we do? I'm not going to invest more money into this old machine. I would like to install the Windows Home Server in there. There is no need to use the CD player later (all other operations will be performed by the network).

    Person not answering, so I'll do it.

    I was able to boot from USB external floppy drive, so the solution is to boot from external CD drive and install the system.

    It is not an exact solution, because the internal optical drive must be removed, so I'm looking forward to see updates to the BIOS level or other solutions for Toshiba.

  • Satellite Pro L40 Wireless does not and wont stop correctly

    just got a Satellite Pro L40-15 1 week ago and it's been downhill.

    The Wireless does not work (and yes the switch is activated and drivers installed). Sometimes windows recognizes no device when I boot.

    And when I stopped he said blocking down, but crashes just on this screen.

    Now, I'm an advanced user, so I've tried many things. Can anyone help?

    Thank you

    As a first step, I would recommend to use the Toshiba Recovery CD and renew the operating system.
    Then update the Vista of the State. I mean to install patches and fixes Vista all published.

    Check this thread:

    Here you can see that a missing patches can have a bad influence on the wireless network card and the entire operating system!

    Good luck
