Satellite Pro A200 freeze, including the power button
Had a complete system freeze last night - first tabs of Firefox, then, when I tried to call the Manager of tasks, CTRL + ALT + DELETE does not either. I pressed the off button several times, but couldn't turn off the laptop.
After disconnecting the power cable, the power led is stayed blue and he was always running on battery, even if the battery led was off. I left the laptop (what can I do) until the battery has been emptied and it closes.
This morning, it came normally, followed by this error message:
"the exception unknown software exception (0x0eedfade) occurred at the location 0x7c812a5b.
Followed by a screen of windows update updates have been made and the computer will restart soon (just in case where which can be connected - the night before, the symbol of "updates available" was in the shortcut bar too, and when it froze, I ran my virus check Spyware Doctor daily in the background).
I rebooted the computer without other error messages and it has been fine until now, but I have no idea what caused it, and if it happens again. Any advice?
> I left the laptop (what can I do) until the battery has been emptied and it closes.
What else could do you?
First of all, you could hold the power button for about 4 seconds and it would help tp close Notepad. Then you could reboot the laptop to check if the system is running correctly. However, it seems that it s running again.
> I rebooted the computer without other error messages and it has been fine until now, but I have no idea what caused it, and if it happens again. Any advice?
Believe me, it's really not easy to say what caused this problem system and I guess nobody here will be able to answer EXCATLY.
In my view, there was a software problem that was solved by new reboot and a new update to Vista
Strange things still occur and are not rare for me.
Toshiba Satellite Pro L500 stops when the power cord is removed even with the battery to 100%. I removed the battery and all the indications associated with battery answer correctly. For example turns off, Toshiba Health Monitor also indicates when the battery is removed. If installed Health monitor indicates that the battery is at 100%.
Someone please help. I have not installed anything new.
For me, the matter is clear: the battery can't hold a charge so the laptop will be shut down because it has no power.
I think you need to replace the battery with a new one and you can get a provider of service authorized in your country. Simply contact the guy and ask that they can tell you how much it would cost.

Good luck! :)
I created an image of XP RIS for a Toshiba Satellite Pro A200 and have downloaded the correct drivers for this laptop.
I scoured internet solutions on how to configure the .sif file and where to install this driver on the image that he won't seek the intall the storage driver so that it can not find the Sata HD to install the image.
Everyone knows that before and if so please could you point me in the right direction I've been struggling with this for a few days now!
You must include the SATA drivers.
The SATA drivers are part of the Intel Matrix Storage Manager, which can be downloaded from the Intel and Toshiba page page.
Here's a nice instruction how to do this:
+ How to integrate a SATA AHCI driver into a Windows XP Setup CD.
I have a Satellite Pro A200 (PSAE7E) with Windows Vista and XP that have been installed recently.
In the driver of Toshiba page (BIOS update) says:
"This Bios is only compatible for portable computers with Windows Vista!"
(1) should I update my BIOS (1.4) or it'll be a problem for my windows XP?
(2) anyone has try?
(3) is there documentation on the BIOS updates (bug fixes, etc.)?
I will try to be very short with answers:
1. If you use Windows XP Home edition on your laptop have BIOS update with the version 5.30
2 this version of BIOS is available for days and it is possible that many people already tried. By the way: until Toshiba out something that is tested and verified.
3. Unfortunately there is documentation about bugs and patches, but the fact is that Toshiba has designed the 5.30 version to support the features of Windows XP Home edition on the models of laptops designed Vista
For several months, I had problems with the keys suddenly works intermittently. Although brushing under the keys with a toothbrush relieved the problem for awhile it obviously was not the main cause. Each time, so not attributable to each of the keys of damaged to different keys.
When unplugging the power cable from the metal part is very hot, and I worked on the problem of keys occurs only when the computer is running on a/c AND the battery is fully charged. In other words, no problem on the battery or recharging. The adapter is also hot, but guess that's 'normal '.
The power cable has been tested directly from another outlet and not ongoing execution of the usual belkin surge protector, external sources seem so plotted on. I tried to find another cable/adapter to test but living very rural location of doubt this will be possible or practical.
The fan seems to work OK, the air coming out of the side is very hot. It does not appear to be clogged with dust. Also, the area of the laptop above the fan heats up.
Sometimes the computer crashes on black or blue screen (on iplayer lately, maybe other progs too) but the noise continues. I turned off by pressing the button for 5 seconds, but he still works for a while. I guess from overheating. But not some of it is always on a/c-do not charge, it may be on a/c-charge as well.
Sometimes the computer seems confused if he is re-load, on a/c or battery. At least the icon switches and requires a session to unplug the device before doing things.
Other times it is the machine of Angel since last two years! It's a Satellite Pro L20, the adapter's clover LiteOn 65W, 19V 3. 42 a. part PA3396E-1ACA (what I see is no longer available).
Searched through but not found any similar problem, but hope someone can advise me what to do next!
Thanks in advance
It doesn't sound good. According to the specifications of the laptop, you have the right AC adapter. In my opinion you should contact the partner of service authorized in your country. Make a call and I hope they can help you how to handle this issue.
It is also possible that they can send you new power adapter. Make a call and explain the situation. If you have need for addresses and phone numbers you can find under http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com > support & downloads > find an ASP.
I'm buying a Toshiba laptop Satellite Pro L300 T4200 everything here in New Zealand, where I will be staying for the next six months. However, I'm heading back to Alaska (United States) in April.
Someone could answer my concerns about the use of power cables and to buy once back in the States. for the most part is it safe to use a USA power cable in this laptop bought NZ without breaking something to bits?
When you return to the States, I think that you must travel kit adapter power supply only.
I recommend you consult your dealer and gathering information that it will be the best for you.
I have a Satellite Pro L300 - 152 unit, which is out of warranty.
I have a bad power connector, it has been pushed back and be dislodged from his seat or brocken cradel is within the computer.
I am trying to remove the back to see if the power connector can be repaired or remains in its cradle.
I removed all the screws and all devices, but can not get it off the computer.
There seems to be something with the keyboard, which I took.
Can you help me?
To fix the power connector the whole notebook must be disassembled and you must have access to the motherboard. Disassembly procedure is not complicated if you have maintenance manuals and instructions.
To have full access to the motherboard, you must remove all the screws from the underside and also all the screws under the keyboard. You will then be able to separate the notebooks and disassemble the upper.
Tell me exactly what you have removed so far?
I recently bought a SP6000 second-hand advertised as having "graphics problems". After 10 minutes or use the laptop freezes and the screen has a strange random pattern all acorss it. The speakers are also a strange hum. I have to stop the laptop and restart.
I've updated the bios and drivers for card video from the toshiba site, but he always does. Can anyone help?
It's not easy to say why this problem occurs. You have purchased a second hand unit. It is possible that your device has a hardware malfunction, but I can't give you an answer why it is happening. I suppose that temperature increases after 10 min of use.
Maybe this could be a problem. It could also be a fault of the motherboard. But these are just suggestions. In my opinion, you should ask the service for detailed information.
When he put on then get frozen screen toshiba so impossible to go to safemode etc...
Can anyone help?
This means that your laptop can not pass the POST (Power On Self Test).
Self test is a rapid diagnostic test that checks the motherboard and connected devices
Theoretically, what could cause this problem faulty motherboard, RAM failure, etc.
In your case, I recommend you remove the RAM modules and check the simple modules.
You can try to remove only a single module. Check the two modules by using this procedure
Otherwise, you will need assistance from professional technician that the guy could run tests to find out what part is malfunctioning...
I have a Satellite Pro A200 - after starting the laptop she used to find the router wireless in good time, but now it seems to have slowed on the right and it may take a few minutes until 1/2 hour phone to find the router!
This doesn't seem to be a signal problem because when the router is found that I get a signal strength full 5 bars. Connection to the laptop the router with a cable shows that no problem also that the connection and internet access is no problem.
I do not understand why the laptop won't find the router faster and you would appreciate the help in the understanding of the problem and how to resolve the situation.
I don't have a lot of technical knowledge so please keep in mind when replying
Hi Potter (maybe Harry?) ;)
You can easily find what WiFi card has been installed in your laptop.
More details can be found in the *-> network adapters Device Manager *.
Check this out and you'll know what driver WLan is required!
_Regarding the question with your BIOS; _
This error is known to me, always happens if you n t unpack the BIOS package correctly!
What you need is a WinRAR or WinZip program.
I prefer WinRAR and it helps to unpack all of the BIOS update.
If you use the Vista operating system please check that another thread of forum on the same issue;
I must be a fool.
I put in power button new Satellite Pro A200 to activate the Hibernate.
Then set the BIOS password. Despite the password entered correctly, it won't start windows.
And can't stop laptop holding down the power button to force the reboot.
(1) how to restart short waiting until the batterys flat roll... And
(2) when and if I get a reboot, which key (s) should I hold down to get into the BIOS.
Thank you much for the help.
> Despite the entered password correctly, it won't start windows.
> Nor can I stop laptop holding down the power button to force the reboot
You have a Phoenix BIOS? If yes then you have to press the F2 key immediately after the laptop starts to access the BIOS. But you will not be able to access the BIOS, if the password is not right and cannot be verified.
The unknown BIOS password can be removed only by an ASP in your country. There is a special procedure that is known only to authorized Toshiba service technicians.
Therefore, follow the recommendation and contact guys!
PS: The laptop must stop when you press the power button for about 4-5 sec.
If not, unplug the AC and the battery to turn off the computer!
Need for emergency assistance.

This unit is 3 months old Satellite Pro A200 XP Pro.
Used cell phone Sunday noon and set a system restore before installing a few applications. I can get to the Bios.
I also used the disc of recovery as a last resort. I'm on vacation a week today and if all goes well with the laptop.
You said you used the recovery CD? Well, I guess that you were not able to boot from them. Or I m wrong?
Usually, you should try to boot from the CD bootable recovery CD, Win XP/Vista CD or CD of Linux. This could allows to check if a hardware problem exists.
If you want to boot from the CD, I would recommend pressing the C key immediately after starting the laptop. This should allow booting from the CD/DVD drive.
However, you can also try the F12 key. This allows the Boot Manager where you could choose the STRANGE.
I have a MacBook Pro 2011.
The power button does not turn the computer on when the computer goes to black screen.

iI tried to Community assistance to research and tried to wait. The next morning, I was able to turn it back on. Now, it happened again.
Please help me. I can afford a new Mac.
I have the Satellite Pro A200-1YK with the following features
1 Intel® Pentium® Dual - Core T2330 1.6 GHz processor
2 2048 (1024 + 1024) MB of RAM DDR2 (667 MHz)
3. 200 GB hard drive
Can I upgrade the RAM to 4 GB (2048 + 2048)? If so, should it be DDR2 or DDR3?
I have my hard drive can too? If so, the system will support 500 GB of hard drive? If so, what would be the model/product that you recommend?
With change of RAM, I have to update the drivers? If so, what are they?
The two components, you can upgrade: RAM and HARD drive.
Upgrade of RAM:
According to the specifications of the Satellite Pro A200 1YK it uses an Intel GL960 Express Chipset. This means it supports up to 2 GB of RAM and so an upgrade is not possible because you already have 2GB.
Here are the specifications of your chipset:
Update HARD drive:
I think that on the upgrade of the disk HARD, there is no capacity limit because your laptop already supports SATA interface.
So I guess that 500 GB should be no problem. You need a portable 2.5 HARD drive with SATA interface and that s all! :)
Suddenly my new Satellite Pro A300 does not start correctly when you press the power button. The situation is the following: when I press the power button is displayed the opening of Toshiba (Leading Innovation) and the disappers image quickly. Then there is a black screen for about 30 seconds. There is a rectangular frame with the text Microsoft Corporation under. And nothing happens however long wait.
In order to get with the trial starting I then shut down the computer by pressing the power button until the computer turns off. ("The hard way to close")
Now, I press the power button shortly to turn on the computer. Then, the computer starts normally with the photo to open Toshiba and after a few seconds, I wonder to open the computer in safe mode or in normal mode. I now choose to open in normal mode and the computer opens normally and is ready to work.
What should I do to get a normal departure procedure?
When the laptop starts normally (after choosing normal mode) stop your laptop properly using START > shut down option. Next launch should be normal.
When the OS is moving towards the low irregularly will always ask you how to start this new (secure or normal mode).
The same thing happen on my Satellite A300.
