Satellite Pro C660 does not illuminate
Satellite Pro C660 does not illuminate. no noise, no light just fill out the dead.
On this virtual path, it is not possible to provide an accurate diagnosis. All you can do is to unplug the power plug, remove the battery and leave it for a while. Then press the power button and hold it for 15 or 20 seconds.
After doing this connect the power running and try to start again.
What happens when you do this?
My HARD drive died, so I decided to upgrade my Satellite Pro C660 - 1 9 to an SSD.
I made a USB bootable with Win8 and starts very well.
The problem is that it does not detect my SSD, so I can proceed with the installation.
SSD appears in BIOS but not in Windows Installer.
He said that there is a missing driver.
I downloaded the AHCI drivers (XP, only ones available) and even in this case, after you have selected the only rider that appears, it says no new device found.
I tried to change the SATA from AHCI mode to compatibility mode and it's the same thing...
What can I do?
Thanks for the help.
More old Windows XP need a driver AHCI Intel's but I think this isn't a problem with SATA driver missing because as far as I know Windows 8 as well as Win 8.1 already contains the drivers to recognize the SSD or HARD disk drive.
In addition, the installation of the OS should be possible even if the driver would be added for this procedure, you must use the "compatibility" mode
As you say, the compatibility mode is not working too, so I think there is another problem.
However, page driver Toshiba also provides a driver Intel RST (Intel Rapid Storage Technology) (Windows 8 - updated) you can try to add during the installation of the OS.
But I m wondering if you would be able to install this Win 8 on common SATA HDD.
Have you tried to format the SSD using a different computer, then install Win 8?
Give it a try.
I have a Satellite Pro c660 and bought a copy of windows 64 bit with him - the laptop come with many software from toshiba on what I wanted really, I therefore installed windows 64 bit (fitness in the process).
After the Installation I had some problems connecting to my wireless home (he was missing drivers, but have now install) but finally got it works.
After having taken it round my friends last night, I could not connect to its wireless - the password has been good and I could see the network, but he just kept constantly defect - its network was on it, because his cell phone he was performing. -The only difference between its network and the spirit (that I can see), it's that she was using the TKIP encryption to connect, while I was using AES (my network card is Atheros). -Even when I tried to configure a network profile and have it automatically connect (using the same information she used, including the TKIP encryption) - it was always not.
The ideas people? More missing drivers?
PS - I really don't want all that toshiba nanny software on the laptop.
Thanks in advance!
> Any ideas people? More missing drivers?
If you can see the Wlan network then it means that the WiFi adapter driver is correctly installed and the problem is between the router configuration problems WiFi and wireless network card.
Are you abele to connect to other networks wireless at home?
Please disable encryption settings in the Wlan router and try to connect to the Wlan that is unprotected.
But note; This must be done only for testing purposes!
You should also check if the MAC address filtering is disabled in the settings of the router.
Hi guys I was wonder if anyone could help please.
I have a Toshiba laptop Satellite Pro C660 - 2 DR who seems to be defective (just out of warranty).
Everything worked fine until we came to a morning market and found that the screen remains off (black screen). There are no output through the VGA as I tested it on an external monitor.
The CPU fan turns for a few seconds and then turns off.
There is no noise from the hard drive read/write either. The power light stays on. I removed the hard drive to access data on another system that worked Fortunately
. I also removed the RAM, battery and optical drive, but there is still no output to the screen.
Is it sounds like a faulty motherboard?
The laptop seems to be in excellent condition.
Is there something else I can try please? I would be very grateful for any advice.
Yes, it looks like the faulty motherboard or a part of the motherboard as RAM or CPU.
You said that you have already removed the RAM, but have you used a good RAM module tested?
Theoretically, it could be just a problem of RAM but in the worst case, you will need to replace the motherboard and I think it would be really expensive repair.
I have a M40X Pro Satellite that I bought 4 years ago. It works well until a few weeks ago.
I tried to turn it on but nothing happen, nothing, no lights, no sound at all, completely dead.
It is connected to the power supply and the power light is on, (the battery light does not work since there is a lot of time). I tried to remove the battery, unplug the power cable and after several hours or even days, try to turn it on and I got the same behavior.
Only power if it is (the power light when you connect the AC power) but when I press the button "turn on" the laptop, nothing happens.
My laptop isn't under warranty, so if someone could help find a solution that would be great!
I have read your problem related to the failure of hardware. It seems that the motherboard is dead, no doubt, the southbridge. In any case, you should contact the service center:
Note that the motherboard is one of the most expensive parts of the tower and don't know if it's worthy to replace, it is better to buy a used or a new laptop.
When I try to boot my Toshiba Satellite Pro A60, seems to be powered. A few seconds later, there is a click and it cuts.
I tried to turn on the computer with just the power supply with the battery removed, just with no power supply and battery and power, but none of these options are making a difference.
I also tried to clean the fan in the aspirant from the outside by a suction pipe, but even once, it did not help.
Can help you with the Please this problem?
Turn the laptop over and unscrew the cover on the ram. Then remove the ram and try to turn it on again. If it lights, put the piston inside the laptop and try again. It does not turn on? Then your ram is dead. If yes then you can replace, or have your asp replace it. If this does not resolve the problem, there is a small plastic cover that runs along the keyboard just above the keyboard. Take this off and then unscrew the fixing screws to the bottom of the keyboard. Under the keyboard, you may have a second RAM slot. If Yes, try to remove the RAM stick and turn. It work? If this isn't the case, you probably have a problem with the motherboard. If it lights fine, then you have found the issue and can replace or continue using it without the extra RAM. Hope this helps and have a nice day.
Hi all, I'm new to this forum.
I have a Toshiba Satellite Pro L300 and I've had it for about 2 years.
But yesterday I closed the laptop as usual. But later I went back to it and tried to turn it on. But it does not work. Instead, when I press the power button the LED next to the battery symbol flashes orange/orange 6 times and then turns off.
Can someone tell me what it is? I tried to let it load, but that has not worked. The amber light is the only light that flashes. It does not recognize that I plugged in the charger and I don't think that the battery was flat. So I'm angry and helpless right now.
Can someone help me please?
See you soon.
There are several indicators;
DC, while running, the main battery, LED HDD/ODD.
So I guess the power LED flashes in orange. Right?
This means that something was wrong on the motherboard.
Maybe power supply electronic malfunctions
In this case, there is no much to do only mobo replacement could help to...
Hope you can help. We have a 5 years satellite pro L20 who never gave a lot of days. It runs from Win XP, had an upgrade (crucial) memory to 2 GB and a new battery 4 years ago 4 years ago. 2 days ago, he simply left with the same noise you get when force a shutdown by holding the power button down. I tried to boot with no battery, just the sector and only on a charged battery. All to nothing does not.
I then read the button of power with the battery and removed sector I did after leaving it overnight. When I replaced the battery it started as usual and lasted 30 seconds before turning off again, and then he was dead. I have tried all combinations with the ram up to 1 stick or kidnapped and attempted to get the bios with the HDD outside as well. Still nothing.
I noticed that when I put the battery in 2 of the 3 flashes briefly, and now the button of pwer while pushing the battery causes a brief start 4 seconds.
Any ideas as to what this may be? I suspect that the hardware and software. Also, I tried a different power adapter, once again no results. It stays just off.
Thanks for any help...
I'm afraid it looks like a serious m hardware problem
My first idea was a malfunction of the RAM in such a case, you could replace and test the memory, but it seems that you have already tried
In my view there s something wrong with a motherboard or a part on the motherboard :(
In this case I n t think a replacement of the motherboard would be useful since this part is very expensive
I have a Satellite Pro L10 and it stopped working yesterday. It won't turn on or charge up. No show of lights on the laptop when the charger is connected. I plugged in another toshiba charger but still no luck.
Does anyone have ideas on what could be the problem with it and if it is easily resolved. The laptop is about 2 years old. Thanks for your help
Seems not beautiful it is maybe something wrong with the electronic power on the card mother s in this case the motherboard must be replaced to solve this problem
But maybe you are a lucky guy and only the power adapter malfunctioning Yes, I know that you have tested the laptop with another power adapter, but are you sure that the second captain is supported?
Anyway, in my opinion, nobody here can provide a solution exactly because without diagnostic tests we don t know what could be wrong
This is why I recommend to contact the technician of the ASP for a help
The machine (not mine) went suddenly "dead" outside of the led lighting, even if she had been normally before it was turned off.
When it was given to see what we could do, I fear a failure to the mobo, but when we lifted up at an angle and press the power button upward, it began. Everything was as it should be - until we turned it off, then same thing happened, and again, it has started, then while I was holding it at an angle.
We thought at the beginning it was a faulty switch that could be replaced, but now we believe it is more likely to be something that is broken and is intermittent contact when it is in the right position.
If anyone else has had a similar problem and can tell us a little more about what we are against, please?
It's not easy to say why this problem occurs. Of course, this looks like a hardware failure, but I can't give t you a good answer exactly what s wrong.
Well, I think that the best way is to contact the after-sales Service of Toshiba partner. He can start the diagnostic test to analyze the malfunction.
I have problems with my computer toshiba laptop, suddenly the other day, he does, instead when the power button is held three lights... turn the caps lock light and lighting under the f10 and f11 keys, when plugged into current alternative battery light turns orange.
I tried to remove the moemory models and hard drive, but nothing works, nothing changes.
any help would be appreciated.
Thank you, tom
You have the same problem, if it is start with battery or AC/DC adapter?
In the worst cases, you need help from the ASP. The technician must check your laptop to make sure that the part or parts are defective.
On the Toshiba site, you can search an ASP:

The product key on my Satellite Pro P300 does not work.
I entered the key from the sticker on the back of the computer. What I am doing wrong?
Why use this product key?
Firstly the Toshiba recovery image is already enabled and you don t need this key more activations.
Second, it's an OEM key and it will not work with other versions of Vista!
My satellite M30X 127 does not illuminate. When I push the power button, it is DIRECTED in turn. But nothing comes on the screen. There is no sound and the fan does not start. I took it to a repair center and they told me the motherboard is fried and it will cost me 400 pounds to fix.
The guy there offered my 100 pounds for to buy me.
Please a little help. What should I do?
Otherwise you will search in ebay for the second hand with the good motherboard unit.
Sometimes people sell books with the failure to display or other parts of damage, but the motherboard is ok.
You can try to use second hand motherboard in your laptop.
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.
Deploy a satellite Pro C660, who decided that he no longer wants to start.
When you press the power button, the green light turns on and the fan begins to hum, however, the laptop does not have to go through the routine of the POST and everything turns off.
I checked the RAM Modules and the HARD disk automatically to the poor in the hope that the problem is simple, but nothing helped.
I managed to start the laptop previously now CTRL + ALT + DELETE, when it has sprung into life. But this trick works now is no more. I also tried waving the F12 or F2 key at startup, but the laptop won't always start.
I should mention that this laptop is not very old, less than six months, but if there is a simple solution as an alternative to return, I would like to try rather than the first!
Hope someone has a solution?
To these questions there is not some sort of magic bullet.
The description of your problem is OK, but we don t know what you don t in the past.
This problem doesn't happen for no reason and maybe something you did can be responsible for this.
Looks defective BIOS so can you please tell us since when you have this problem, and maybe you tried to update the BIOS in the past?
