Satellite Pro A100: Screen does not return after hibernation
The laptop went to Hibernate, but would not re - awaken.
tried to disable following the manual, but the screen is now definitely blank, any suggestions?
The update of the graphics driver is not bad idea but Stefan, how should Christian update the graphics driver if it s not able turn on the laptop?
I suggest putting the laptop turned off (press the power button for about 4 seconds) and unplug the AC adapter and remove the battery for a while.
After several time (10-30 min), you can try to put the battery in the laptop and connect the power adapter. Then try to start the laptop.
If it helps, then you could try updating the graphics card driver.
In addition if the new BIOS version is available if you could also update it. But don't forget to use the good BIOS and the correct procedure for updating the BIOS.
Good luck Christian
After the computer wakes up from hibernation by lifting the display panel (cover) and the LCD screen turns off due to power management settings, display shows the Toshiba logo and does not return after a key is pressed and the keyboard is not responding.
I turned - power & removed the battery without success-.
OPS: windows XP.
You have removed the battery but wait you a bit?
If please plug the laptop and remove the battery.
Wait 15-20 min and then plug the AC adapter and put the battery in the laptop.
Then try again!
After a week off, the Toshiba Satellite Pro A100-080 (PSAASE-00G004GR, 4 GB RAM) of my kids start not anymore.
When turn on/off the system, he * will beep 3 times * (one long, two short beeps), the HDisk light flashes 'blue' and then nothing more. A/c and battery power LED are 'blue', which seem to be OK status.
No other useful help, as the screen remains dark.
We had upgraded to 4 GB MEM (Kingston) a year ago and I already tried the old used 1 GB (included with purchase) or the replacement of 2 x 1 GB since December 2007, but equal status with these modules. This is not
a defect of memory.
I hope that this is not the motherboard, probably only the NVIDIA GeForce Go 7600 graphics included adapter?
Does anyone have an idea what could be the problem?
Thx for a short help.
Generally this type of beep codes are hardware related or with other words, hardware is defective. So I think it's a hardware problem and an ASP must check your laptop computer to identify the cause of this.
On the Toshiba site, you will find a list of aspic:

I just got my Satellite Pro C660D back from repair (for a faulty fan), but the screen does not light when I start the laptop.
She lights up on the front (and I can rotate the block number power sp that the keyboard works).
I agree, I mean the laptop should work just fine after it has been fixed by ASP so I think that something was not right here and the technician must check this!
today I purchased two 2 GB RAM Corsair DIMMS (DDR2 - 667 mhz) for my Satellite Pro A100.
After that I updated the BIOS it detected the 4 GB of RAM, but the balance of RAM on the boot prompt checks only 3 GB of RAM. So I can use only 3 GB of RAM (I use ubuntu 64 as an operating system). When I try to RAM into another laptop, it works perfectly. A memtest86 + says check: no error. When I plug in a dimm in the laptop, it is correctly detected as a 2 GB dimm module (tested two DIMMs into the two slots on motherboard)
Anyone else seen this behavior? For me, it looks like a limitation or a bug in the version of the BIOS.
(The processor supports 64-bit (core2duo t5500))
What Satellite Pro A100 you have exactly?
As far as I know that some models can only be upgraded to 2 GB of RAM.
It's really not easy to say what is the reason for this because I m confused on the subject of what the BIOS recognize the 4 GB of RAM, but not the boot prompt.
I'm not sure that maybe the modules are not compatible with your laptop. You can test other modules?
bought a toshiba Satellite Pro A100... came with a built in blue tooth... al worked well... until 4moths to fight back my computer had to be repair he was expelled to the toshiba returned however restarted by bluetooth/service application are not on the taskbar.
I am looking for the computer n found in system folders aside my blue tooth stack but how to make the blue tooth to work.
Make sure the WiFi switch is on.
+ and select the bluetooth antenna.
Check if your Bluetooth module has been correctly detected:
-Open the DeviceManager (start-> Run-> "devmgmt.msc").
-Open the section "system devices".
-A "Bluetooth ACPI" device should be available.
(The system has detected the BT module if this is the case).
Install the battery last Bluetooth (= drivers + Bluetooth management software) v5.10.12T.

I tried to install a new processor for my Toshiba Satellite Pro M10-PS630E.
He initially has a 1500, I tried to put a 1766.
I follow the maintenance manual, later the computer change is not star upward.
When I connet to power it show that the luminous power of orange/amber color and make 5 flashes, then 3 and then restart blinking.
My question is "is it posible to do a reset of the bios parametrers" or "reset the CMOS?
Is it possible to get it working again.
The flashing light means that it has detected a hardware problem on the motherboard!
Perhaps you have used a wrong CPU and is not compatible.
Perhaps the BIOS does not support this processor and therefore this flashing error code appears.
What say you can't update the BIOS! First of all, that's not possible since only focused on the victory of BIOS is available for download. You must run the Windows operating system to update the BIOS.
Secondly the update of the BIOS won't help you with this problem!
You must use a CPU that is fully compatible!
I hope someone can help me here, I recently bought a Satellite Pro A120 (PSAC0E) and decided to upgrade the RAM. I bought a stick of 512 MB of curries with the following specifications: DDR PC2700 200-pin 333 Mhz SODIMM (64 x 64).
However, the first problem I encountered was an alignment problem. A little effort and handling solved this, but after you insert the RAM into the available slot, the computer laptop wouldn't boot, and instead, I had the flashing sequence on the LED from 2,3,3.
I was told it might be a problem matching, then tried to remove the original RAM and booting with just the new stick, still the same error. I tried it in the slots and still no joy. It starts very well with the original 256 MB of RAM, but refuses to take the new RAM.
Are there any known issues? Can anyone suggest something that I can do wrong? I followed the usual steps of upgrade to remove all power cables and the battery before the upgrade, but still no joy.
Hoping that someone is able to help!
You simply have bad memory modules and is not a compatible uses.
> the first problem I encountered was an alignment problem. A little effort and handling solved this,
This should not happen! The right modules can be inserted without any problem of alignment!
Handling can damage the module!
In my opinion, you should use another and supported the RAM module.
To my knowledge, you can use the PA3512U-1M1G (DDR2-667 1 GB Memory Kit) or (PA3411U-2M1G) DDR2-533 1 GB
The two should be compatible.
I have a problem with my bluetooth device. I have Toshiba Satellite Pro U400.
My previous operating system was Windows Vista business and I just replace it with Windows 7.
Since I installed it my device Bluetooth does not work anymore.
I have had no problems with it with my previous Windows.
Now, the following messages will appear: "Bluetooth stack for windows by Toshiba is incompatible with this version of windows" I have windows 7 Professional.
I tried to update the drivers, but I was told that I have the best and latest drivers.
Can someone help me?
Seems that you are still using an old battery Bluetooth.
You this should remove the system and need to install a new one which you can download here:
You can find the pile of BT for Win 7 32 bit and 64 bit version
My friends laptop - a S300-120 - was having a few problems.
I replaced some parts about this before, including a screen crack with no problems.
However, he began to refuse to start saying "out of battery CMOS, Press F1 to enter setup". Of course you would have to do this, set the date and time, except & restart only to get the same message. We have replaced the CMOS battery with a with the same serial number and now the laptop will not boot.
It does one of two things.
It is one) seems to turn, turn to the top disk & CD player, cooling fan is 100%, then flashes the POWER ON led once, twice by orange, and then green to 1/2 second intervals, with no response from the keyboard or LCD.
Or (b) turns on, turntable, does not turn up to cooling fan, POWER ON witness remains stable, no response from the keyboard or LCD.
I re-assembled the laptop several times & can not find all the missing fittings or obvious signs of damage.
The only thing I can think is that the motherboard has been damaged - somehow find replacements is delicate.
(> It is a) appears to turn on, turn the disk & CD player, cooling fan goes to 100% and then flashes him
POWER ON led once, twice by orange, and then green to 1/2 second intervals, with no response from the keyboard or LCD.
Usually, if the voltage in abnormal feeding malfunctions when IN DC will be blinking orange.
In my opinion, it looks like a problem with the motherboard :(
Eventually, you will need to replace the mobo ;(
I used my Satellite Pro A60 yesterday and everything was fine, I tried to use it today and the screen lights it is just white... Please can someone help I am lost without her, the blue light comes on, but nothing on the screen please help.

you see the Toshiba logo red when it starts or a screen empty?
Toshiba logo: so you have a software failure, and you should backup your data and do a restore
White screen: while there must be a problem with your hardware! Contact a Service partner and he will repair under warranty!
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.
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.
Hi, I need help!
computer laptop, tested just got everything ok with Vista business and everything works fine.
Now, I have a requirement to test a laptop duel boot XP build and follow the attached instructions to change the BIOS so that I can install XP.
Restarted the laptop with the bios disk selected bios XP and everything seems ok.
The phone rings, I answer. When I finished, I think back to the laptop and screen is white.
Leave it for 20 minutes still white. Stop the laptop and reboot, no tosh start screen, nothing.
Now does not start, so what do I do to get this thing working again?
This looks very bad! :(il ressemble pas à quelque chose a mal tourné àle cours de la procédure de mise à jour dele de BIOS, et donc l'ordinateur portable ne peut pas démarrer correctement.)
I hope that the ROM module must be flashed again.
This can be done only by an authorized service provider.
I see no other solution for contact ASP in your country and ask for help and handling.
Good luck and best regards
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!
This is one for my laptop was overheating strongly and I decided to clean the radiator and the parts around it. I disassembled the computer laptop to the point where I can take off the cooler, cleaned and then I put everything back. The problem is now it won t work.
It starts normally, past in loading windows (I have Windows 7 sp1) and then after 10 seconds, or it just stops. I tried to go to the bios, but it does the same thing after 10 seconds. First, he showed BSOD with no explanation. Just somewhere stopped working and it has to stop, but I can't figure what. CPU should be fine, it can t overheat in 10 seconds if it s cooler nor starts loading Windows in order to RAM and HARD drive may also be excluded.
My best guess is that I'm connected to something wrong, but I disassembled it 3 - 4 times today and can t find something that is not connected. When I remove the top plastic I need to disconnect this son: speakers, power button, touchpad, keyboard and one other connectors 2 or 3 which I am sure they are USB, LAN & maybe etc...
Then, can you at least tell me where to start? What to check?
I also can say with certainty what happened exactly, but fact is laptop disassembly is not easy and should be made only to professionals. If you take apart a laptop computer, you must be connected to the land, for example to avoid electrical damage.
Anyway, everything you can do test your laptop with factory settings (preinstalled OS from Toshiba). If you notice the same problem it s a serious malfunction of hardware and your laptop should be verified professional people.
