Satellite Pro L40 Wireless does not and wont stop correctly

just got a Satellite Pro L40-15 1 week ago and it's been downhill.

The Wireless does not work (and yes the switch is activated and drivers installed). Sometimes windows recognizes no device when I boot.

And when I stopped he said blocking down, but crashes just on this screen.

Now, I'm an advanced user, so I've tried many things. Can anyone help?

Thank you

As a first step, I would recommend to use the Toshiba Recovery CD and renew the operating system.
Then update the Vista of the State. I mean to install patches and fixes Vista all published.

Check this thread:

Here you can see that a missing patches can have a bad influence on the wireless network card and the entire operating system!

Good luck

  • Satellite Pro 6100 Wireless does not work after restoring from HARD drive

    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.

    Any advice?


    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.

  • Satellite Pro A200: Wireless does not work


    Got a Satellite Pro A200 2 weeks and the wireless worked well.
    Then after a week there was a problem, try to connect. I was able to reboot the pc and he was able to connect.

    Now it just doesn't quite work.
    I can connect through the LAN and I have another laptop that connects to the router with no problems.

    I checked in the Device Manager, the wireless card works correctly and I've updated the drivers for it but no. - GB.

    Any help would be great.
    see you soon


    Try to remove the network adapter from Device Manager wireless.
    Then restart the computer and reinstall newest WLan driver that you can download on the page of the Toshiba driver!

    Second, you could try to set up the WiFi network using an Intel ProSet Utility (but only if you have a Wlan Intel card.)

    If you have an Atheros Wlan card, then try using the Atheros Client utility for configuring Wlan

  • Satellite Pro L40: Bios update not necessary - no settings for RAM in Bios 1.90

    Hi, I just bought a Satellite Pro L40 laptop and im trying to figure out why the bios has no parameter memory.
    If I look at the ram using a tool of information system (cpuz or aida320), it shows she doesn't move at the speed of 667 mhz but at 533 mhz.

    As you can see from this screenshot the memory runs at the real speed is less than the maximum that the sticks have a rated power.

    Its running at 266 mhz (533 mhz ddr) where it should be run at 333 mhz (667 mhz ddr).

    I also noticed that with this laptop fan never seems to come, is it possible to mount the fan?
    Whenever I have the laptop for more than 30 minutes, it becomes very hot.


    > if I look at the ram using a tool of information system (cpuz or aida320) it shows that it does not run at the speed of 667 mhz but at 533 mhz.

    What is your FSB?
    If the laptop was equipped with memory PC2-5300 modules then they could run at 667 MHz, but only if the FSB would supports 667 MHz! I think is supported by the FSB of 533 Mhz.
    So I can't say it s nothing wrong!

    > I just bought a Satellite Pro L40 laptop and im trying to figure out why the bios has no parameter memory.
    Why do you think a BIOS update would turn the memory settings in the BIOS?
    Please don t mix of desktop computers laptops! Laptops cannot be overclocked.
    BIOS of laptop computers is not the same thing as a desktop PC BIOS!

    > I also noticed that with this computer laptop fan never seems to come, is there a way to turn the fan to the top? Whenever I have the laptop for more than 30 minutes, it becomes very hot.
    Have you noticed all automatically turn off downs or any other strange behaviors laptop as freezing OS for example?
    If it is then that the laptop runs correctly and doesn't overheat.
    Books to support thermal protection which would be closed the laptop automatically to avoid equipment damage

    Then lean back man and enjoy your nice toy ;)

  • Satellite L500D-163 - Wireless does not

    Laptop: Toshiba Satellite L500D-163 (with card wireless 802.11 b/g/n)
    Router: Pirelli Discus (having support 802.11 b/g).


    I bought a portable Toshiba, Satellite L500D-163, two days ago.

    Windows 7 and Ubuntu Linux 10.04, the Wireless does not work. It shows all the available wireless network neighborhood, including mine, but it connects to my network.

    I also have an Acer laptop that connects to my network wireless without problem.

    I placed the Toshiba laptop side by side with my Acer laptop and tried all the options:
    802 11b, 802.11 g - WEP, WPA, WPA2
    with simple passwords of the style: "00000000".

    and SSID wireless to the router changed something as simple as "abcde".
    Computer Acer laptop connected without problem in all cases, but Toshiba didn't connect.

    In Windows 7, the connection information appears as connected but 'Limited' and the software Toshiba says that the laptop is not getting an IP address.

    I manually entered the IP address (, subnet mask ( and the default gateway ( router =) below the configuration in Windows 7 wireless card, but it did not work.

    The laptop must support Toshiba, or y at - it an incompatibility with my router?

    Thank you.

    Great! Thanks for that!

  • Satellite Pro L40 wireless channel selection

    I have a Realtek 8187 b WLAN in my Satellite Pro L40.

    I have the latest drivers installed with xp pro, but can't set the channel everything but 10. How can I change the channel when I get the message that the channel range must be 10-10. This just doesn't seem right.
    Channel top 10 isn't a problem, but when I'm somewhere else, it is impossible to establish a connection, at least that channel 10 is used.


    Have you checked the settings in the WLan card properties?
    Go to the devices-> ECS-> Wlan card Properties Manager.
    The Advanced tab should contains different settings.

    Wlan channel can also be changed using the Wlan configuration utility Intel ProSet or Atheros Client utility such as tools.

  • Satellite Pro L40 - wireless adapter does not work - Vista

    I recently had some problems with my laptop.
    A couple of weeks, I put in a disc of OpenSuse.
    It's not stable anything, but locked me out of my original Vista operating system.

    I reinstallled Vista Home Basic, but there are a few problems.
    Mainly, my wireless adapter does not work.

    When I flip the button to turn it on nothing happens and it is not recognized in Windows.
    I installed Atheros Driver, but still nothing happens, light is not yet.

    Any advice?


    First check the device-> network adapters area manager
    You see the WLan card? Or the unknown device appears?

    If there is an unknown device, then the WLan driver has not been installed correctly or you tried to install a driver badly these two options are possible.

    Remember that your wireless network card? Maybe it was a Realtek WLan card?

    If it's a Realtek WLan card, try the WLan driver from the Realtek website and look for 802.11 g (RTL8187B) chip or you will simply check the page of the European driver Toshiba too the Realtek WLan driver also appeared on the Toshiba page

    I use win XP. Any idea?


    You have the latest version of the BIOS?
    If this isn't the case, then you should first update the BIOS!

    The latest version of the BIOS is on the European driver Toshiba page and it can be modified running Windows OS.
    As far as I know, you must use 2.5 or later version BIOS.

  • Satellite Pro C850 keyboard does not work properly and opens several programs

    My satellite pro C850 1HE keyboard intermittently stops working correctly, and begins to open programs, for example, by pressing F will open the file search, C open computer this kind of thing

    is there a permanent solution to this problem?

    This is not something to do with installed programs is not something to do with the browser settings.
    restarting the computer works in a short time, but that is a long time, it's really annoying because I use this for work and study!

    > is there a permanent solution to this problem?

    The question is what causes this problem? Is it related hardware or software related issue?

    Why n t connect a USB keyboard just to check if the same would happen?

    In case the USB keyboard would work fine, I guess that the internal keyboard failures and the solution would be a simple replacement of the defective part.

  • Satellite Pro L300-21F does not start and the screen remains blank

    L300-21F is aged 18 months, so out of warranty. When you press the power button, you can hear the fan and a "click" but the hard drive does not start and the screen remains blank. The power and the battery on the headlight LEDs, but the switch light does not work. I checked the power supply and it is 19.3V and substituted a good known. Removed the battery, tried with just the power cord and still nothing. Pressing ESC or F2 when you press the button power does not bring to the top of the screen of the bios or any other message. I have concluded there is no power the jury. A friend he had its technology take a look and he concluded Council is probably a friend.

    So my questions are:
    1. He's probably right?
    2. is it a common problem with an easy solution?
    3. what else can do before shelling out for a new Board of Directors?
    4. is there a link where I can find how to disassemble the case?

    Any help appreciated


    > 1. He's probably right?

    Yes, it looks like motherboard failure

    > 2. Is this a common problem with an easy solution?

    If it's a motherboard problem, the whole motherboard is replaced. Quite expensive part...

    > 3. What else can do before shelling out for a new Board of Directors?

    I don't think you can do anything with fried mobo

  • Satellite Pro C660-1NQ does not detect the WLan network

    Hi guys,.

    We have a Toshiba Satellite Pro C660-1NQ here that does not at all, detect the wireless network
    I checked the Device Manager and the wireless card does not show here.

    I tried scanning for new hardware, but nothing was found. I tried to turn the wireless off tension with the function and the keys F8 but not yet showing in Manager devices or any new hardware...

    Any ideas as to what I can try next?

    See you soon,.


    It seems that the laptop would support the Wlan Atheros 802.11agn card.
    Usually the Atheros Wlan card must appear in Device Manager as on the menu network cards.
    If it s not appear do not then I recommend that you install the WLAN driver which can be downloaded here:

    Choose the Atheros Wireless LAN Adapter Windows 7 (32/64) or newer
    I hope this helps to detect the WiFi chip!

  • Satellite Pro M10 PS630E does not start after upgrading CPU

    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!

  • Satellite Pro U300 OS does not recognize PS/2 Port TouchPad

    I have a similar problem.

    My system doesn't recognize that the PS/2 Port TouchPad exists on my Satellite Pro U300. He acknowledges that it no longer works but when I go to Control Panel then mouse it does not appear in the list of devices.



    I m do not know what problem describe you exactly.
    Do you mean that your notebook computer touchpad no longer works, or did you mean the USB mouse?

    If you mean touchpad, so you should try to reinstall the driver for the touchpad.
    The European driver Toshiba page provides Synaptics touchpad drivers series Pro U300 for Win XP and Vista.
    But generally the operating system should automatically recognize the touchpad and touchpad should work even using the common internal Windows driver.
