[Satellite Pro A200] - slow when problems of transfer and the warmth of the data.

Hi people.

I have a 1.5 years old Toshiba Satellite Pro A200 with 200 GB HARD drive standard. For some time, his behavior is just... weird.

Sometimes the system slows down. She behaves just slow, it freezes frequently for a second when simple tasks such as entering the text. It; s busiest during intensive data transfers (e.g. copy files via FTP from my copy of the USB or LAN), but sometimes it happens even when no application other than Firefox does. It is not apparent, so I wonder - service it will take in terms of warranty (which means - is there a probability that you will say that everything is perfect and charge me for it?)
The computer was once on the repair under warranty, they replaced the HARD drive with another. Is it possible that the other has problems as well (check S.M.A.R.T. discovers nothing). Or is it maybe faulty SATA controller?

Another thing is the temperature. During the normal work (Internet, MS Word) two hearts runs at 60 * C. When the set temperature may exceed 90 * C and the computer sometimes shuts down. I guess the problem is dust accumulated inside the laptop but I do not see how can I clean.

Go to the service of this kind of problems?

Virus scanners can slow a system down considerably, what antivirus do you use?

If you have a lot of programs installed, perhaps its time to back up your data and reinstall Windows. I do it myself every year since Windows tends to become bloated and slow after a while.

With respect to the dust, you can Sauté using a can of compressed Air sprayed through the main entrance of air (when the system is off).
Or if dust is really bad, you will need to send it to a Service provider authorized to do so and cleaned disassembled.

    If you want to update the BIOS, you need version 5.60. Are the other version for Vista and 5,60 only one is for XP and if it s the right one for you.

    The BIOS update procedure is quite easy. The update is based on Windows, which means that you can update it on Windows. So to extract all files from zip archive and run the exe file. Then updated your BIOS.
    But before update you, close all programs running even your AntiVirus and firewall and connect the AC adapter.

  • Satellite Pro L450 - 16 M - problem with WIFI and Webcam

    Hey guys

    At first, I'm sorry for my bad English. Last time I heard about 20 years ago at school.
    Here's my problem:
    I have a Toshiba Satellite Pro L450 - 16M. My OS is Windows7 32 Bit und my router is called Easybox 602.
    Whenever I use my Chicony USB 2.0 Webcamin Skype or other Onlineapplications my Wlan is turned off.

    I can't turn off and turn on before I restarted my computer. I think I downloaded the latest driver
    from this page. I also fixed my system with the recovery CD. Please help me!

    Welcome them


    So with other words webcam and WIFI are not usable more right?
    You wrote that you did an installation of recovery using Toshiba Recovery disk: all devices recognized and listed correctly in the Device Manager? Please check this box.

    Generally the wireless network card can also be enabled by using the FN + F8 key combination.

    If webcam doesn t work I would like to reinstall latest driver of the webcam of the official website of Toshiba.

  • ESXi5 - problems with NFS and the data copy store

    Hello world

    I recently moved into a solution fully virtualized for my network, 3 x 5 ESXi servers running on our GigE network.

    First of all, I use all free software from VMware, so vCentre etc is out of the question.

    I have major problems when you try to copy files between:

    • NAS (NFS) to ESXi 5 host
    • ESXi host to the NAS (NFS) 5
    • And using VMware converter between ESXi 5 hosts converter Standalone

    The problem is that whenever I'm transfer between hosts I am struck with the horrible network performance. Even if I use GigE adapters and switches between my hosts I will receive no more than 12 Mbps speed of transfer real (100 Mbit/s connect?).

    On the flipside, if I use virtual guests on the same exact host I can happily transfer data between my NAS (NFS) servers with speeds between 60-150MBps ~ (1000 Mbps).


    Speed of 10 Mbps of transfer of ESXi_1 copy OF NFS data store share ~

    Server2008 (comments, located on ESXi_1) copy OF NFS 75MBps transfer rate ~.

    Server2011 SBS (comments, located on ESXi_2) copy OF Windows share 2008 (ESXi_1) transfer speed 120MBps. ~

    ESXi_2 copy OF NFS data store share transfer rate 5MBps ~.

    Attached (wtf.png) example:

    I copy a file that is located on our NFS share first, it's a 3 GB file to the copy within guest OS (2008), it is indicated in blue - top speed of 80MBps

    I copy the same exact NFS share for the host (datastore1), this is indicated in red - top speed of 7.5Mbps

    The third transfer/s (green) is between the customers of windows on different hosts, transfer a 6 GB file as well as a copy of the 360 MB file - transfers two happily send to GigE speeds with a peak around 40MBps

    I can reflect these results across the three servers without modification. Copies between you will be able to run well enough (not exactly 100% use of GigE) but at the moment where I try to do something to the data store it will just choke at all about a 100 Mbps connection speed.

    The final image (wot.png) confuses me beyond belief. I would try to explain what is happening here:

    • This image shows two times the same exact file transfers, except even machine PHYSICS
    • The first (red) transfer between the ESXi_2 host server and the NFS share using the browser data store and direct download - its top speed is around 8MBps
    • The second (green) transfer between a guest server 2008 running on ESXi_2, download the same file exactly at the exact location using vSphere Client. I mean the same EXACT file; It connects to the NFS drive by the data store ESXi_2 (NFS share).

    Why on earth can my comments directly download a file on a data store connected to NFS GigE clocked and yet the same exact host cannot go anywhere near corresponding to these speeds?

    As indicated in the title, the problem seems to happen whenever I use ESXi datastore browser on the host computer using vSphere Client or between browser datastore ESXi to/from an NFS share.

    No one knows what might happen?

    Is there some sort of restriction on the transfer of files between a host and shared NFS ESXi 5? Whence this bottleneck?

    Thanks in advance for all the help/ideas that guys can throw my way.

    P.S. Sorry for the wall of text, I really wanted to give as much information. as possible.

    What type of storage you have locally on the host computer?

  • Satellite Pro A200-1MV - resolution problem


    Brand new machine with pre-installed XP Pro and I am trying to set my screen resolution.

    Currently the maximum limit is 1280 x 800, otherwise I have 1024 x 768 with a Center screen.

    Ideally, I would like to have 1280 x 1024, as 800 option makes some windows program crushed look, and it also means that the report that I have served to must now be changed mentally... a difficult change, I'm sure you're account.

    I have two questions: is there a display/chipset driver download I can get to 1280 x 1024 and if so, what is it and what is the URL.

    Many thanks in advance,

    Hello Adam

    Please check document s user manuals that you have with your laptop. If I remember well he must be a list of resolutions supported. As far as I know that you should not have problems with external display resolution, but it also depends on who you use.

    Some users have noticed problems with 22 screens and resolution of 1680 x 1050.

    Connect your external monitor and see if everything is Ok. If this isn't the case, please let us know.

  • Restore the partition from the Satellite Pro A200 recovery


    I accidentally deleted the 5 GB recovery partition on my Satellite Pro A200. I have since recovered (and the data inside) and tried to create my discs of recovery using the "Recovery Disc Creator', but it is to say that it cannot find the recovery partition :(

    I tried fishing by the ini files for recovery disc creator find where he seeks the score, but could not find anything...

    One thing I noticed is that now it is recovered, it appears as a NTFS fs (I think that before it was an unknown FS type?) and volume label "HDDRECOVERY".

    Any ideas on how I can either:

    (a) wrong recovery tool by using the recovery partition
    (b) to make the score look exactly as it did before I deleted it, so I can use the tool as it is.

    Would really appreciate any help - want to make these recovery disc for my vista ultimate before I go around whacking backtrack top :) and dicking




    > accidentally deleted the recovery partition of 5 GB on my Satellite Pro A200. Since I got (and the data inside)
    I wonder how you restored the deleted partition. Perhaps the recovery settings partition are not the same that before and, therefore, the "Recovery Disc Creator' doesn t work properly.

    Unfortunately, I think you will not be able to fool the recovery tool, if the recovery partition cannot be found.
    You can rename only the partition NTFS FS. This can be done in the disk management console.
    But I don t think this will solve this problem.

    It seems that you have to reinstall the whole OS using the CD of restoration of Toshiba or the original CD of Microsoft Vista

  • Problems of the product on the Satellite Pro A200 recovery


    I have a Satellite Pro A200. She runs very slowly and sometimes it crashes when I connect.
    Also the homepage was hacked and I tried several anti-spyware and they did not work.

    I have the product recovery disc, but the problem the DVD rom drive stopped working.
    The light is on, but it will not open unless you use the manual unlocking.
    I removed and checked the connections, but it seems okay.

    The CD-ROM/DVD-rom has disappeared from the Device Manager and does not come under the material.
    I tried the system restore, but it won't work.

    Is there anyway that you can use the product recovery software if you start from a USB?

    I tried to restart the computer and choose boot from CD, but it won't give me this option.
    I looked in the bios and only boot options it gives are hard disk, CD rom, land and FDD

    > Is there anyway that you can use the product recovery software if you start from a USB?

    No, this Toshiba recovery disc cannot be copied to USB flash memory and used for installing the OS. I'm afraid that it would work not m.

    But if you have a Microsoft Windows CD, you should be able to create a USB bootable flash stick. In internet, you will find lots of useful instructions step by step how create this bootable USB key.

    But boot from USB flash memory stick must be definitely possible since the BIOS supports bootable devices on:
    Drive floppy USB, HDD, ODD, Network (LAN), USB memory

    Well, I searched a bit around and discovered that the solution described in article 811259 doesn t help in all cases

    So searched the Web of the 3rd party site and someone has suggested to try these tips.

    If not, then you may be forced to reinstall your operating system, because the repair option is not included in the Toshiba Recovery CD ;(


  • Satellite Pro A200-PSAE4E - computer laptop shuts down randomly

    I've had my Satellite Pro A200-PSAE4E for about a year and a half now. He ran very well most of the time, but in recent months he has been stop itself randomly. There is no warning or "Windows is shutting down" he just me using my computer to a blank screen.

    After frustrated with her, I did a full format my HARD drive and started from scratch. This does not solve the problem, and since then, the taskbar freezes. When I click on it I get the error and the hourglass cursor message "Windows Explorer is not responding... "I then have to click"restart", which makes the taskbar disappear for a few seconds before returning (usually without my sound icon).

    The laptop turns off when it is connected to the electric network with & without the battery and when running only on battery, so I excluded all power problem.

    I have considered it heats up too, but I use a block of cooling with built-in fans and has not himself in a few minutes after being hit not 24 hours, so I'm not sure that's the problem.

    Someone at - it ideas?

    I am running WIndows Vista Home Premium 32-bit if that's any help.

    Thank you.

    > It worked fine most of the time, but in recent months he has been stop itself randomly.
    > There is no warning or "Windows is shutting down" he just me using my computer to a blank screen.

    I think that the problem of overheating.
    The fact is that the laptop would be down automatically stops in order to avoid that the pieces of equipment against damage.
    In most cases this problem can be solved very easily. Using a jet of compressed air, you can remove the dust from the cooling modules and fans.
    I clean my fans from time to time, because I noticed a higher temperature and the laptop was a little stronger.

    Check it out mate

    I don't know if you saw that this forum is the forum of users and you should not wonder if nobody can give the exact answer. As an electronic engineer, you must know that no one can answer specifically and to find the good chip, you must run diagnostic tool.

    So I think that you need professional help. Try to contact nearest Toshiba authorized maintainer and ask for help.
