Satellite Pro A100: How to get a new keyboard
I managed to spill beer on my keyboard, and now some keys no longer work. This is the version for the Satellite Pro A100 Uk. Can anyone recommend a place that sells the replacememts, because I can't seem to find anywhere in England.
Otherwise, advice on fixing?
Thanks in advance,
All the parts for your laptop, you can buy from the Toshiba service partner in your country.
ASP in the United Kingdom, you will find this Toshiba site under find authorized service partner.
In addition, you can also visit this Toshiba options & Accessories site.
HTTP://EU.COMPUTERS.TOSHIBA-EUROPE.COM/CGI-BIN/TOSHIBACSG/JSP/OPTIONSANDACCESSORIESHOME.DO?SERVICE=EU&ID=ONLINE _ SHOP
There, you can search the compatible keyboard.
To replace the keyboard you have first of all remove the thin cover above the keyboard (F-keys)
Then, you must remove the screws that attach the keyboard. Then, it should be possible to leave the keyboard. But be careful. The keyboard is connected with the flat cable to the motherboard.
I am aware that the driver for my on-board graphics card is outdated.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
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...)
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
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.

Good luck! :)
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
I bought a Toshiba Satellite Pro A300D laptop a few days ago.
The first task was to wipe Vista Home Premium there and put professional Vista I needed to connect to a domain.
I did this and then install the drivers from the Toshiba driver download pages.
There were a lot of riders who have failed, but I managed to fix most of the problems aside when I display the laptop to a projector, I can start cutting the bottom of the external display only.
In any case, I am now led to believe that there is recovery of HARD drive on the disk that could give me the right drivers that they have been installed at the arrival of the laptop.
How can I get these out of the system on a disk for example so that I can resinstall?
Thanks for your time.
> Anyway, I am now led to believe that there is recovery of HARD drive on the disk that could give me the right drivers that they have been installed at the arrival of the laptop. How can I get these out of the system on a disk for example so that I can reinstall?
I think that this is not possible because the recovery of HARD drive contains only unique image files and you will not be able to get only the unique drivers of the recovery image.
HARD drive recovery can be used to perform a new installation of operating system from the HARD disk (without using the disc).
The European driver Toshiba page usually contains all drivers Vista compatible and necessary for your laptop model. So I doubt that your problem with the projector might have something to do with the Vista drivers.
I have a sat SPM30 Pro PSM35E-0023J-FR model with a video fault.
Anyone know where I could get a new motherboard?
If anyone has a similar model with other damage that they might want to sell on. All I really need is the motherboard.
New parts can be ordered from the local ASP.
But be aware that a new motherboard is not good cheap. You will need for a replacement of the mobo 300Euros.
I think that it s not worth buying a new motherboard because you could add a few Euros and might get a new laptop.
However, you can view some websites like Ebay for example a satellite M30/Satellite Pro M30 of second hand. Perhaps you could get a second hand mobo
I have a Satellite Pro 4340 and I recently updated the BIOS from v2.6 to v2.7 unfortunately since then randomly, the laptop freezes and requires a reset. Check the error log indicates a fault in which case the ACPI BIOS is written in an unauthorized area. I would now go back to BIOS version 2.6, however the support from Toshiba site only lists the current BIOS v2.7 and not the older versions. How can I get the old version? Anyone here happen to have a backup?
Unfortunately, to my knowledge, you will find only the most recent update of the BIOS on Toshiba page.
I don't think that the authorized service provider is able to downgrade the BIOS to the original version
Before you have to play with the Satellite Pro L300 laptop recently (on the instructions of the Tech) when I close the lid of the laptop that he went to sleep BUT when I opened the lid eventually, I had to press the power button to restart the laptop.

I want to do a clean install on my Satellite Pro A300 laptop, but the only thing is I can't find my recovery disc I made. When I did everything first he is there anywhere I can get a new one?
I checked the section drivers but nothing is there
If you have always installed the Vista version that was bundled with the laptop, you can create a new disc of recovery again.
Just launch the Toshiba recovery disc creator and create a new one that s all the!
In addition, you can reinstall Vista if you use HARD drive recovery option. Therefore, you need to go into the advanced boot menu (F8) and select Repair my computer. Some files are loaded and then you can choose the Toshiba Recovery option.
But this is only possible on the preinstalled Vista version.
In the worst cases, to order a new drive Toshiba Recovery directly:
How can I get the software WinDVD and Drag'n Drop CD for my Satellite Pro 2100 without the recovery disk?
Post edited by: yirms
This is not possible because this additional software is not available on the download page of Toshiba why?
Because this isn't a Toshiba Software, but software manufacturers, 3rd party.
This software comes with the recovery disc and can only be used with your laptop!
I think it has something to do with licensing issues
How can I get a new CD to recovery my laptop Satellite M30X-145?
I don't know if you could get this m recovery disk.
Because the M30X is an older model laptop and it is possible that the recovery disc for this series are not more available.
But it s worth a try to contact the ASP in your country.
Maybe the guys could help you, and it may be possible to order the Toshiba drive.
You must simply ask.
See you soon
In fact I want laptop e downgrate (Satellite Pro series U940) since Windows 8 for Windows 7.
But, when I chose the hard drive to format and install the new OS (W7 64 bit) I read this message: "no driver signed device not found.".
Guys, please help me... !!
Please read this thread:
I have a portable satellite Pro A200 computer and I would like to install Vista 64-bit.
As I read it, you can use the 32-bit key to install the 62-bit version. Is there a way to get the "product recovery disc" in a 64-bit version.
Or download it from somewhere
What OS came preinstalled on your laptop?
If it's a 32 bit Vista OS, then you can only get a 32-bit Vista Toshiba recovery CD.
If you want to install another OS, no matter if it of XP or Vista 64-bit, you must purchase the operating system of Microsoft.
PS: as far as I know the key to series used for Vista 32 bit OS is only an OEM key and it does not work with other operating systems!
I have a real problem connecting my Satellite Pro A300 to my Samsung HDTV.
The video works fine - I used a VGA connection on the laptop and the TV.
The problem I have is healthy.
I want the sound either also come from the TV. I tried a jack of 3.5 m from the headphone jack of the laptop to a red and white connection RCA audio on the TV, but it doesn't seem to work.
Does anyone have any ideas or advice?
I need of additional drivers, etc., or do some settings need to be changed etc etc.
Normally, to use the 3.5 mm jack plug in the headphones, you need an adapter cable.
At one end, it has a 3.5 mm jack and the other side to connect red and white audio RCA connections.
Here is an example of what I mean:
I m using such an adapter without any problem. You n t need an additional driver, or something more. It's the same as if you were using a helmet. :)
