Satellite Pro L20 goes wrong with i.f. audio Fast Track USB
I used my Fast Track USB on new Toshiba Satellite L40 and I never had any problems with it. I could put a low latency and I did a few songs with him.
Yesterday, I bought another laptop, thinking of recording studio at home. He used the Toshiba Satellite Pro L20. It does not work with my interface. When I listen to music on Winamp or anything on Fruity Loops, I hear strong clicks, pop, noise. They introduce samples, or they appear during playback, or after a sample is stopped.
I noticed, drivers for Satellite Pro L20 are a problem. Its not supported by Toshiba more? The only chipset drivers are old, and you can download em only from site Web from Toshiba. The chipset is ATI Xpress 200 M. Its pilots are with the graphics card. Recently I noticed that you can download "ATI Catalyst Legacy Display Driver for Windows XP - card mother/IGP Drivers 9.11" and CRACK to make it possible to install on a mobile device like the L20. Yep it's funny, but its impossible to do otherwise!
things that I have tried and they have still not help:
replacement of drivers #, original were released in 2004. I installed the version.
driver settings #, low latency, high latency
# asio and different settings
pluging # USB interface to another.
# try what happens when I use the battery and when to use the adapter
# update BIOS
# off units such as wifi, card sound card on board
# checked IRQ list
persistent organic pollutants will always appear.
Toshiba Satellite Pro L20
Win XP Home SP3
Celeron M 1, 5 GHz
896 MB of ram
M - Audio Fast Track USB, drivers: 6.0.2
Initially, I wonder that you use old notebook L20 now. You have no more L40?
You must understand that the Satellite Pro L20 is older model laptop and also not the best choice for such operations. This laptop is probably designed for simpler day-to-day operations such as the internet, e-mail, office, a little bit of multimedia and that s all the.
I don't mean good old classic doesn't work with your external device, but you will be lucky if someone has the same external device and the same model of laptop and write about their own experiences.
Do you use factory settings or you have installed the own operating system?
I've recently updated my Toshiba Satellite Pro L20 to 2 GB, DDR2 667 mhz (Corsair ValueSelect) RAM because the old 512 MB of ram would not cut it anymore with all these processes.
Now, when I check my speed of ram with CPU - Z it says 200 mhz, whereas it should be at 333 mhz. I checked the chipset (Radeon Xpress 200 m) to ensure compatibility and it is compatible with ram to 667 mhz.
Toshiba Satellite Pro L20 - PSL2YE-005009DU
Windows XP Pro SP3
Intel Celeron M360 1.4 ghz
2 GB DDR2 667 Mhz
Radeon Xpress 200 m chipset
Now to clarify my question. I would run my ram at 333 mhz for many reasons, because if it is not I had been better to buy cheaper, slower RAM.
How can I use it, I can't access the bios to fix this, how can I access/derivation of the locked bios?
If you need more info just tell me.
Perhaps CPU - Z isn't read correctly... Who knows?
Also maybe the RAM modules are perhaps not compatible to run at 667 MHz speed. I n t have experience with Corsair Value Select modules
Last but not least, you can do nothing. There is no option of BIOS or something, where you can change it. In addition this speed of RAM will not bring a solid performance gain.
By the way: did you check the speed of your old modules?
We have several Toshiba laptops in use in our society. I need to restore a (a Satellite Pro L20) to factory settings. However, although I have kept all the recovery CD, most of them have labels which do not mention which model they are intended to be used on. On some of them I wrote the model number on the label by hand, but I did not do that for the L20. I know from experience that if I receive the wrong recovery CD, I have to put dozens of drivers and utilities individually, in order to find the right one would save me a lot of time and stress.
Each recovery CD has a number (for example GMR400626EN1), so it should be possible to identify the good CD of it, but I can't find the info on the Toshiba web site.
Is there a list that corresponds to the reference numbers for the models of laptop recovery CD?
This info is certainly not available on the Toshiba support site. What you can try is to contact the partner of service authorized in your country. They have access to the database of Toshiba and I'm sure they can help you.
If you need addresses and phone numbers please check https://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com support & downloads search for an ASP.
Bye and good luck!
My Satellite Pro L20 simply does not recognize my wireless network at home - he can't even see when I search for wireless networks. With my other non-Toshiba laptop on - there was no problem and that captures wireless 4 or 5 in my neighborhood.
My Tosh works well when he hard plugged on the Net, but if you help get me wireless I would appreciate.
Are you sure that your laptop is an installation of a WLan minPCI card?
You can check this in the device under network adapters Manager
If the wireless network adapter is listed in the device manager then you should check the compatibility of the WLan standards.
If the wireless network adapter supports only the 802. 11 G standard and your router supports only 802.11 A or 802.11 standard B then you will not be able to connect to the WLan router.
I have a toshiba satellite pro l20 series and it worked fine until yesterday.
the problem is that it restarts... Well actually, he stops in about 4 seconds after the start, remains closed for 1 or 2 seconds and then again
same problem occurs with or without the battery.
all I see is the Toshiba logo. I can enter the bios and when in the bios it does not stop.
When I get out of the bios, saving the changes he stops. and then begins by itsself after 2 seconds.
Please help me... How can I fix?
If the laptop goes through the Toshiba logo then maybe there is just something wrong with the software.
In this case, the first step should be again install the Toshiba Recovery CD.
Put the CD in the drive and try to boot from the CD.
After installation, all should work properly.
If it's not, so I guess there is a serious problem and service guys should check the laptop.
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've been running my L20 Pro Satellite for two years now, quite happy. Unfortunately, in the last 3 months, he began to misbehave. The startup time stretched to 5-10 minutes by that I mean time spent in "black" screen between the initials XP boot logo and the bright blue splash screen Windows. Playing sound/media crackled and stuttered badly through the loudspeaker. So, being reasonable technical, I've read various articles forum tried MSCONFIG tweaks here and there, removed all viruses etc... Nothing helps.
I began to suspect a HARD drive problem. CHKDSK has not shown any errors. I finally resolved to back up my data and attempt a complete recovery. (Virgin!)
Unfortunately, this is going to plan. medium 90% up to the end of the NVA Toshiba Recovery Utility 22.214.171.124 I think, started making subtle beeps and stopped on the 'X:\03596002 '. File of the GHS. The Green HARD-drive activity light has renounced his reassuring twinkling. Nothing.
Any suggestions tips out there? I am currently in the State where he can not start (no NTLDR found).
HDD on SP L20 interface is - Serial ATA Rev. 1. 0a.
For the replacement of Satellite Pro L20 HDD or upgrades, you can use follow hard drives:
With 4200 RPM.
With 5400 RPM
So, you can choose one of these hard disks for upgrade. If you now of 60 GB inside buy 100 GB for replacement.
Satellite Pro L20 PS25E with mobile Intel 915 video card is connected to the PAL TV and gives only bw image. Settings to PAL BG in the video card, yet only B & W photo. Other forums say this photo card ALWAYS give NTSC and cannot produce the PAL color. Is this true?
Hope that no, I bought three laptop computers of this type and was eager to connect to the TV in the House. Any help appreciated ;)
Usually if you get only a black & white picture it's a wrong output setting of your laptop. I think that it s something wrong with the settings PAL and NTSC.
As a first step, you must update the display driver. Latest you can download from the Toshiba page driver.
And what cable you use for this connection? S-VHS cable?
If so try another cable. Use a cable of high quality, especially if you have a cable long enough.
I recently rebuilt my Satellite Pro L20 to finally give my father in law.
I installed windows XP home on it and have currently installed SP2.
When I try to install the software of the chipset of the official region on the Toshiba site he says that my operating system does not meet the criterion even though windows XP is listed in the readme file.
Please help as this is supposed to be a Christmas gift!
Thanks in advance

Have you really downloaded the correct driver? For this model are XP and Vista drivers available so I think that you had to download the wrong driver.
Try again, maybe the download file is intact. If it doesn t work once again, you can download the driver also from Intel.
But normally you have a Toshiba Recovery with all the drivers and tools disk. Install from this disc and you have a clean and ready installation.
I wonder if there is a way to identify what recovery CD or DVD came with a particular laptop model?
I have a number of Toshiba laptops and it is that recently that I started to write a note that's CD/DVD with a machine.
GMR400788EN0 goes with Satellite Pro A200 PSAE4E-03U017EN
I'm trying to figure out which CD is going with a Satellite Pro L20, PSL25E-00800CEN
Sorry, but I think that there is no way to identify which CD belongs to what laptop.
If your laptop comes with the recovery disk it should be a CD label or so on it.
Anyway, it shouldn't be a problem, and you should test if it s the right recovery disk.
Or you have so many Toshiba laptops? ;)
I am looking for a local network (ethernet) drive to my Satellite Pro L20, who has Windows 2000 on it.
I found one for WiFi, but not for the Ethernet (cable/CAT).
Well, you can t find all the LAN for Win2000 drivers on the Toshiba page because this unit has been delivered and tested with the Windows Xp operating system.
However, I found the information that the appliance has a CL LAN Realtek 8100.
In this case, I guess for visit the site Web of Realtek. You can find a compatible driver for this network adapter.
First post here, so please excuse the lack of local etiquette.
My son has a Toshiba Satellite Pro L20 with a broken hinge base plate. I'm calling it a base plate that I can not find the name of the part anywhere on the web so far.
Its obviously the metal plate on the basis that the hinge attaches to.
You can see it if you remove the battery.
Nobody knows what is this part and where I could possibly buy one?
I think that in this case the ASP from Toshiba (certified partner) might help you.
You must enter in contact of this ASP in your country and the technician should be able to order a compatible part for laptop.

It is a desperate help request!
Football Manager 2010 will come out soon and my laptop should be at the height.
I know that I need to upgrade because Football Manager 2009 almost killed it!
At the moment I have Intel Celeron M 1.4ghz and 704 MB ram chip.
What is the song the fastest I could put in that? I did some research and found that I have only 2 GB of ram
The laptop is in perfect working order, so I don't want to buy a new one, just for fun he and its served me well over the last 4 years - I dropped it enough times! Just need to speed up a bit!
Hmm... You want really old enough Satellite Pro L20? I mean new laptops are more so expensive and I doubt that you will get a solid performance with the new CPU gain.
Anyway, in your notebook is only the preinstalled CPU pre-tested and nobody is able to say what other s CPU will run. But you should look on the specifications for other laptops Satellite Pro L20. If an another L20 is equipped with a faster processor, it should also work in yours. You can try it, but in the worst case, it will not work.
We have about 60 Satellite Pro L20s on a network. When the user starts the computer sometimes they start with the number lock on. Its seems to be worse on some than others. It is very annoying because it causes problems with logon.
Is it possible to disable the locking function of the number on these laptops?
I'm a bit confused. I thought that MS L20 has no Num Lock key.
Is it may be on a green light below the F11 key?
Is there anywhere I can download a repair manual for Satellite Pro L20 that I just bought a dvdrw drive & want to adapt it myself
Unfortunately, you won't find manuals repair on the Toshiba site. Only Toshiba service partners have such documents and the ability to use laptop manuals.
As far as I know, the reader is fixed with a screw that is placed at the bottom of the unit and under the keyboard.
After the withdrawal of these two screws, you can disconnect an optical drive to the connector on the system board.
But without any experience, you must remove all readers. I think you should ask the service of Toshiba for help because he has more experience in such cases
