Satellite Pro L670 and windows XP
I just bought a new laptop and windows xp installed. After the installation of other programs and then turn off the computer, it will turn back not again. A blue error message screen appears, but I can't read because it flashes and turns off the screen too fast. Sinks in a loop where Windows starts, a screen pops up that says that windows did not start and gives me several options such as "restart windows safely" or "restart windows using a previous configuration." No matter which option to choose, it is up to the Blue error message screen and then back to the screen telling me to select an option.
I tried to reinstall Windows XP with original Toshiba drive. He has worked for three days and then the same problems occurred again. The last thing I did before I turned it off was to install a plug-in from Adobe. I installed it again this morning and I fear that this loop of error will happen again. I don't know why this is happening and I want to prevent it from happening again in the future.
I also put t know why this happen, but let us first clarify some basic stuff.
What model of laptop you have exactly (L670-xxx)?
Do you have original Windows XP Home edition recovery disk with your laptop?
You have changes to the SATA settings in the BIOS?
If please enter the BIOS and set it to default settings. After doing this OS install again by using the original Windows XP Home edition if you guessed it with your laptop.
I bought a Satellite Pro 6000 and I want to put Windows Vista on it. I did an Upgrade Advisor and I was told that this graphics card will not work. Is this true?
I'm afraid that's true. Satellite Pro 6000 is old enough for laptop and it will not supported in Vista. Install Windows XP Home edition and enjoy your life.
I'm looking for a set of drivers for the laptop model above. I recently installed Win7, but I have no drivers for the machine at all.
XP drivers do not work.
If someone managed to install the drivers for this machine? I'm mainly interested in getting my wireless card working.
I look forward to your responses.
Thanks in advance for your responces
Satellite Pro L10 is old enough for laptop and I do not think that you will find all the Win7 drivers.
According to the Toshiba - http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/kb0/TSB9902P50000R01.htm - your laptop isn't supported Win7 and find the drivers won't be so easy.
I am the owner of this laptop & I wonder if it is compatible with Windows XP 64-bit.
I work with 3dsmax which does not work on Vista (32 or 64 bit).
Y at - it problems with the drivers & where I can find drivers for 64-bit Windows XP?
See you soon
Toshiba does not 64-bit drivers for Windows XP.
So you must search on external Web sites for the drivers but I could only you n t get all the drivers. To be honest if you don t use 4 GB of RAM or more in this laptop Windows XP are the best choice.
Here are some examples where you can search for drivers:
This my first post on this forum - I hope I have the right category.
We have a user with a Satellite Pro L670 - 11 d attached to a port replicator Dynadock U10 USB.
Everything seems fine, except when press us the disconnect button (or select eject Dock) the laptop leaves the great.
However when we try to anchor (for example after a meeting of bureau) it does not recognize the usb connection and docking station won't. We usually have to restart at this point. We are attentive to reconnect to the same usb port.
Has anyone seen this problem and know a fix?
Have you noticed this problem only under this Dynadock U10 or perhaps with the external USB HDD too?
In my opinion, it sounds a bit like the issue of the BONE and not like the Dynadock question.
I would recommend this control by using a USB HDD.
Connect the USB HDD to the USB port as well.
Then, disconnect the USB HDD and unplug the laptop HARD drive. Reconnect the HARD drive and check if the HARD drive would be connected again.
If the same thing would happen with HARD drive, you should check the USB port
Maybe the chipset driver will need to be updated
But if the HARD drive is raccorderaient ok and if the question does not seem to be using the HARD drive, then, it would be necessary to check the Dynadock maybe reinstall the Dynadock from the software again.
Regards to all forums. I'm new here.
Next week I should get a new pc, * Satellite Pro L670-16Z *. I have a few questions.
* 1. * If, during some weeks, use my computer with Windows 7, after that I can downgrade to Windows XP?
* 2 if I downgrade to XP, you can reinstall Windows 7 new?
Thank you for the replay.
If you want to reinstall Windows 7, you must first create the recovery disk. There should be an icon on the desktop. Use good quality DVD discs since those of poor quality can cause errors during recovery.
To install XP, you buy XP in a store (which may be difficult).
You can run XP in Windows 7 Professional or higher using a Virtual Machine.
I have a strange problem with two Satellite Pro L670-16Z. I connected to an external monitor. After changing the settings to extend the windows desktop, I rebooted the system.
Then I gott a blue screen. I disconnected the screen external, nut, this is not enough. The system does not start. I always get a blue screen.
Systems running Windows XP. I have this with both of them with different external monitors.
I can boot a BartPe. I did correct the systems yet. The systems are very cool, works only for 14 days.
Are you using the original recovery image Toshiba WXP?
Can you start Windows XP Home edition in safe mode?
The port on which you are using to connect the external monitor?
I recently bought an SSD (Crucial M4) for my Toshiba Satellite Pro L670 - 14M. He behaves well and certainly improves performance. However, when I test my SSD benchmarks, it reaches only about 230 - 260 MB/s reading speeds on sequential when it needs to get up to 500 MB/s as advertised.
I'm assuming it's because my SSD is running via SATA 3 gb/s, so I ask, my laptop does support SATA 6 Gbps? If not, this isn't a big disappointment, although it would be great to have up to 500 MB/s sequential read speeds for this performance gain.
Someone can confirm on the question of whether my laptop (Satellite Pro L670 - 14M) supports SATA 6 Gbit/s or not?
The laptop is equipped with a Mobile Intel HM55 Express Chipset and the Intel Core i3 - 330 M processor.
That's why the SATA II controller agreed that 3 Gbps
So I have been serching for a laptop of decent game and found: Toshiba Satellite Pro L670 - 14L to be a good combination power/price
but after reading some reviews, I discovered that many people's complaint that the toshiba drivers are not updated.
that seems to be true because the latest drivers for my P300 with 4500 m are 2008!
So, I checked for L670 Vista display drivers and did not find one! Even for Win7 do not seem old already,
is that mean Toshiba is not compatible Vista more? I have to use windows 7 only?
I can see in the specifications of the laptop your laptop came with WIN7 64 BITS HOME PREMIUM.
Can you confirm this?
Why are you asking about the Vista drivers if you got the new OS to Win7. You want to use Vista or what?
I want to say Win7 is much better than old Vista OS so I put t understand what you exactly want. To use Vista or you ask here for more recent WIn7 display driver?
My Satellite Pro L670 - 11(d) does not connect to internet (Internet Explorer) wireless despite a good connection to the router. Router works wirelessly with other laptops and it connected with a cable. It has been lowered to Windows XP and downloaded wireless network adapter is Broadcom. Any ideas/suggestions?
Is the card properly installed wireless (Device Manager)?
You can activate using the FN + F8 key combination?
Have you checked all the WLAN settings?
What did you already get this working correctly?
Screen goes black in my Satellite Pro L670-103 while playing games. It is not completely off, but very very dark.
System is activated and works while its happening. No flickering, changing colors.
On the external monitor (TV via HDMI) everything works fine (so I guess that the GPU is very well).
The beginning I had to restart the laptop and screen was once again but now it does not work and I have to wait a few more hours a sound goes on again just by itself (im leaving laptop on).
I only use the approved oryginal drivers.
System Windows 7 pro 64
I guessed it might be the display inverter, but someone from the point of laptop repair told me that because my screen is RUN there is no converter and problem is with the screen itself.
I spent hours reading various forums and UPS has been my best guess.

I think that its problem of converter FL.
The FL inverter controls the backlight of the internal display.
I think I get m with my suggestions because the external monitor looks ok.
So it may not be a driver issue not a GPU problem
Get in touch with the service in your country then must check this part
TOSHIBA - Satellite Pro L670 - 16Z Intel i3 - 350 M RAM 4GB 17 "LED Windows 7 Professional / XP.
Next week I'll buy this model. I read some reviews on a decline in the middle of the keyboard.
"The one on our review sample fell a lot in the middle. As a result, we felt more like we were tapping on a bouncy castle. »

I wanted to know from someone who has this model, if the problem is present.
I put t have it, but best friend of my girlfriend had it and I installed and configured this machine so I got it in my hands and I must say that the keyboard is OK, and I didn't notice anything unusual.
Also, talk with your local dealer to return option. In my country I have 14 days to return the product if I don't like it. Maybe you have the same option in your country. Check it out.
In any case, I must also say that the Satellite Pro L670 is good laptop for all activities of the day. Nice design, very good material and enough power/performance. With other words: nice piece of hardware for the money.
I have a Satellite Pro L670-18F and I recently updated the BIOS to version 1.5, recommended by the site, but now my internet speed is VERY slow and I have some devices in the Device Manager without drivers related to the bios (from Googling) and so I realized that the bios has been a problem.
Does anyone know this laptop came with to downgrade the BIOS version? Also, if I reinstall windows will I receive a new bios version or will it would not affected?
Did you download and install the correct version of the BIOS of your laptop? Satellite Pro L670-18F belongs to the series of PSK3FE AFAIK, so have you chosen BIOS for this series of model?
In addition I recommend you load the default settings in the BIOS. Just press F9 key if you are in the BIOS Setup.
If you reinstall Windows, the BIOS will not be affected. BIOS and Windows are different, you will always have the latest version of the even you change your operating system.
The * webcam * on my * Satellite Pro L670 - 18F PSK3FE * who is running * Windows 7 64 - Bit * a well worked until this week. My notifications bar started to say * "unknown USB device" * and when when I went to use the webcam it no longer worked.
When I disabled the webcam in the BIOS the notification has stopped, but when I turned it on the notification came back again to the top. The unknown device is clearly the webcam.
I updated my BIOS and tried the system restore.
I also downloaded the driver for the webcam of http://uk.computers.toshiba-europe.com/innovation/download_drivers_bios.jsp?service=UK and have tried running that - + but it NEVER seems to complete the installation. + I have will continue to try to reload the driver and see if that helps, but from now on, I do not think that the pilot will help.
If it is just a driver problem, someone could suggest how to get the driver to install really :-(
I am now at a loss. I'm not sure what to do now. Suggestions?... + Please! +
Unknown device means that the driver is not installed.
I think that the installation of the webcam driver should fix it.
As face recognition also use the webcam, I recommend you to uninstall this tool as well as the older version of the software of the webcam.
Both (or just face recognition) should appear in Control Panel-> software
Now download both applications to the driver page.
Start with the installation of the webcam driver:
(1) unpack the webcam driver package
(2) the TC30049700N.exe may also be decompressed (right click-> extract here)
(3) now you should see different files exe, dll, and others attempt to run setup.exe to start the installation. If this does not work, go to Device Manager, mark (webcam) unknown USB device and install the driver pointing to the folder that contains the files of webcam driver. The system should automatically recover dll files.
(4) restart the laptop and follow with face recognition software.
My Satellite Pro L670 - 11 d is not an external keyboard (PS2 connected via a USB adapter). When connected, the keyboard lights blink once and that's it. The keys do nothing. This happens if the connection before or after the start. I use Windows XP. Any help is appreciated!
You need to update drivers chipset makers of these functions:
Choose your model and download, install it and restart
