Satellite Pro A100: How to disable the card Board?


How can I disable the on-board its on my Satellite Pro A100?
I can't find an option in the BIOS.

And it is also possible to use the card reader with Ubuntu Linux?
It is not up the cards.



You want to disable an internal device?
I wonder why

However, you can disable it in Device Manager should mark the sound card, and then turn off.

> And it is also possible to use the card reader with Ubuntu Linux?
Why do not you will need a Linux driver that would be compatible with the card reader.
As I m not wrong not the driver is from Texas Instruments

  • Satellite Pro A100 - how to get the Wlan connection works


    I'm a total beginner, and my problem is I can get a connection without wire only when I'm really close to my BT hub.
    My son has a laptop and gets a good connection anywhere in the House and even outside.

    He thinks I have a dodgy wireless adapter, this could be the problem?
    Can I fix it myself?

    Maybe download a new driver?
    Any suggestions would be much apreciated.



    Your ad is not really useful.
    I mean that there is no detail about your problem
    You should first check if the laptop supports the wireless network card.
    This can be done in the Device Manager.

    Usually the WLan card must appear in Manager devices-> network adapters.
    If it s are not it is that the WLan card is not built in or the driver WLan is not installed. If the WLan driver is not installed then you should see yellow exclamation (or unknown device).

    But if the wireless network adapter is listed correctly then you should check if the WLan notebooks have been enabled. In order to activate the WLan you have to press FN + F8 and you put the switch on IT until the small LED flash.

    Finally, to configure the WiFi connection (right name WLan, encryption settings, etc...)

  • Satellite Pro A100 - how to activate the shortcut keyboard-support on Vista?

    Hello. I've recently updated my satellite pro a100-828 to windows vista, and things work well to a large extent with two exceptions:

    1. I can't figure out how to activate the shortcut keyboard-support: media-keys to the left and the fn keys do nothing. There seems to be no shortcut keyboard-utility for windows vista in the drivers * tion. So what to do?
    2. the standby electricity utility is not available, which is good because of the power saver new vista. Except that I can't dim the screen, so the battery does not last me too long. How can I do this?

    Thanks in advance
    Best regards


    These problems can be solved in a few minutes. You only need the added package Toshiba. It contains the driver for the FN - key, Toshiba Power Saver and more useful tips.

    Here you can download: decision-making supported Downloads & => Download drivers

    Good luck! :)

  • Satellite Pro P - how to disable the hot keys for camera assistant?

    Is it possible, and how, to disable the shortcut keys for the camera wizard?

    The default keys interfere with shortcuts of Microsoft Office (Word) - for example Alt + F9 to show/hide codes field to turns on the properties of camera assistant, Alt + 10 screen settings of camera etc.

    I find this very frustrating.


    Of course you can turn it off.
    You must remove the software from the camera in msconfig start up.

    So go to start-run-msconfig online online
    Go to the Startup tab and disable the camera software. Restart the computer laptop and that s all!

    I put t know what software you use but generally you can always choose the favorite webcam or microphone in the settings of the software.

    For example, I use Skype and Skype settings, I can choose between the internal webcam and my external webcam.

    In addition, you can disable each device in the Device Manager I that you would disable a Red Cross, then it should appear to the disabled device (webcam)

  • Satellite Pro A100: How to get updates for driver for ATI Radeon Mobility X 1400


    I am aware that the driver for my on-board graphics card is outdated.
    When I download a updated from ATI driver and try to install, it tells me that I can't install the update the system there and contact Toshiba for the updates.

    Please can someone tell how can I get a driver updates for this card on my Satellite Pro A100 series?




    You can not install drivers ATI ATI site because these drivers are not designed and certified for Toshiba laptops.
    These drivers can affect the functionality of notebooks and in worst cases could overheat your GPU

    * So if you want to use these drivers, you can do it but only at your own risk! *

    You can install this driver in Device Manager;
    You must use the Advanced installation procedure and you will have to indicate where the graphic driver files were stored on the HARD drive

  • Satellite Pro L40 - how to enable the WLan using ConfigFree

    Can you help me?

    My English is bad I do not end.

    The question is:
    My computer is a Toshiba Satellite Pro L40 and I use the ConfigFree for the wireless, but it seems that the WiFi network is disabled.

    Help please!
    I want to know what's wrong

    Thank you!!


    Your wireless network card is recognized correctly in the Device Manager, or you may notice a yellow exclamation?
    Her check first because otherwise, you can get the WLAN to work.

    In addition, you can activate WLAN with the material on the laptop switch which must be set on and the FN + F8 key combination.
    Check it!

    After this Free Config should find your WLAN router if you are in the range of that.

  • Satellite Pro A100 - can I exchange the CPU?

    Hello world

    I have a Satellite Pro A100-198 with a core duo processor. I would like to replace the processor of a Satellite Pro A100 830, which is Core2Duo in the Pro A100-198. They both have the same chipset-expected-they be any problem with that? This would increase the clock speed of 1.66 GHz to 2.0 GHz. They all have two Intel 945 PM Express chipset.

    I just upgraded from XP to Windows 7 32 bit and the performance score is 3.4. My BIOS version is 1.9 and I see there is an upgrade to win all the version 6, but I can't find the BIOS version history - it is better to upgrade. For the moment, I'll see if there are problems.

    Thanks in advance Mick

    Hi Mick,

    As far as I know the two books belongs to the PSAACE series. Can you confirm this? You can find this information on the underside of the laptop.

    Normally if the books belong to the same series, it should be possible to exchange the CPU. They use the same hardware, so you can exchange.

    But don t forget this isn't supported CPU upgrade. If you have the warranty you will lose it. Other s CPU are pre-tested not on your laptop.
