Satellite Pro M70-113: cannot install Vista graphics driver and lines appears on the display


I have satellite pro m70-113 with ati x 700 graphics card.

When I installed vista, he installed the default drivers for the x 700 'mobility radeon x 700-microsft Corp.-WDDM '.

I've updated the display drivers for vista, that released by toshiba 2 days back... but the driver is not updated to the latest version, only the catalyst control center is installed when I ran the update of the driver of toshiba.

The problem is that whenever I put my laptop in standby or hibernation and resume... the screen shows thin lines vertical/horizontal... and I can't use the laptop... and I have to still put the system to sleep, just to hope that it is not blocking the screen this time...

This problem is 25% of the time only when resume...

This problem is not resolved by the update driver for toshiba has released a few days back... as is not installs the drivers (I can't even install the drivers with the option "update drivers" of Device Manager and select file driver update from toshiba.) It says windows find new driver, but could not install the driver... Contact the manufacturer...)

This snap shows the problem... :

I updated the driver from an earlier version of catalyst, as it is downloaded from the ati site before that toshiba has released the update... this time it updates some 8. XXX version but the screen problem remains...

Second, this update of the driver leaves me not sleep my system... the process starts for a sleep, but go back to the locked screen without making sleep ever... so I have no choice to get stuck with the default Windows... drivers having only the problem of the screen... and not the problem of sleep...

Anyone here with a solution?

Thank you.


I have Satellite M70-159 and I noticed the same thing several times. For most Vista works well but I don't remember cases in which the described problem occurs. I was just curious on M70 Vista and have had no time to intensive testing.

Anyway, it will be interesting to know if you have already updated the BIOS to the latest version 5.10. If this is not the case to do this and watch carefully if the problem persists.

  • Satellite A100-188: how to install Vista graphics driver?

    I installed Vista Beta 2 and you have downloaded the latest driver ATI Vista Beta 2 with the support of X 1600. But with the ATI X 1600 on the A100-188 the driver won't work. The pilot did not find my X 1600. What can I do?

    Hi soumah

    Thanks for the comments. But please note that this OS is not official on the market and Toshiba recommend to use only the graphics drivers from Toshiba.
    You can use the other drivers but only at your own risk.

  • Satellite L650 - 10 d - cannot install a graphics driver


    I just spend most of the day trying to get this laptop to use the appropriate resolution. History:
    The HARD drive failed and I had to get a new one. I downloaded Windows 7 Home Premium and everything installed from scratch on a new HARD drive. The serial number on the back of the machine worked fine with windows (thankfully).

    After downloading a large number of drivers from the Web from Toshiba site, I was working all except the display. Currently uses windows: "Standard VGA graphics driver" who can't go furher then 1024 x 768, very annoying.

    Steps, I tried:
    (1) I downloaded "tc70077100m" AMD driver on the site.
    Installation of the graphics card ATI Catalyst went thru, but the drivers have not been changed.

    (2) double click on "tinstall" or "tinstallwb" in the directories of unzipped driver resolves to briefly see the icon on the taskbar after which leaves the installer, nothing else, no error. Very professional...

    (3) I tried to update the driver manually by using the pointing device manager directly to the package file. First I started warning that the driver is not compatible, but I forced to continue. I took "ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650". Installation could not say that my version of Windows is not compatible.

    (4) I also tried to download the drivers from the ATI site, which failed whenever my software/hardware is not compatible.

    (5) I also tried to download the drivers for the other notebook L650 (Intel ones) has no incompatibility.

    Please advice how can you install graphic driver on this device. I'm not after the games, I would just get a reasonable resolution.


    Hi kotatko,.

    Your laptop is equipped with ATI graphics so as Intel, other display drivers will not work. You need to install the official page of Toshiba display driver: > support & downloads > download drivers

    With the display driver installation before you begin that * chipset driver * is installed. The chipset driver can be downloaded from the Toshiba page too.

    Can I ask you why you n t use the Toshiba Recovery with all the drivers and tools disk which is more comfortable?

    Thank you...

    You will not be able to find info accurate on the BIOS and what exactly is supported or not. If you just want to install Vista on your M70 I can just say that I installed Vista Ultimate on my Satellite M70-159 (PSM71E) without any problem.

    It is only 7 months since I bought this laptop and believe that there may be no other person on this planet who looks after the training better than me!
    Really, I have not much used this drive and never scratched/gradient/local support, only the Supermedium media inserted.

    Thank you


    Well, based on your description it sounds like the drive cannot calibrate the lens and, therefore, it of not possible to read or write to these media.
    Usual it of not possible to fix this and the replacement drive is necessary.

    You can also consult the user manual. You will find a list with all supported and compatible media.

    I also found this topic in the forum:

  • Satellite Pro M70-113 does not start up - it hangs at the logo screen


    I have a toshiba satellite pro m70-113.

    Sometimes when my laptop turns off mode standby automatically, due to inactivity and then if I press a key on the keyboard to wake up nothing happens and I have no other choice but to it stop completely by pressing the button for 5 seconds.
    But when I restart it works well, that is to say, it starts very well.

    But today, when it is in a similar situation, I restarted the laptop, the screen move after the logo screen toshiba. I have the power on several times, but without success. It crashes just on screen toshiba logo.

    After a few restart I pressed ESC while restarting and the toshiba logo changed to the texts POST bios screen.
    And I found that the text will not go forward after having reached:
    Find disk 0:
    Maybe default feel HDD initialization...
    The captured image is here:

    Note: this is a capture when, I don't know how the system has just begun works very well and can be seen that the HARD drive is detected normally this time. While the earlier version, it will not proceed after having reached "Found Disk 0:

    So, the problem is that at the time of the problem, the hard drive was not read / initialized or something like that.

    And I remember that when I tried to reboot my laptop and it did not work. It was running on battery and when I switched power supply that worked.

    So it is a problem that has been fixed in a bet to update BIOS, but for another laptop (see laufendspass post) his link on this forum is here:

    And my current bios version is 1.1 and an update is available for v1.30... (But I have not yet updated)

    Another problem I had met some time was same this post mentions to be corrected during the update of the bios.
    i.e. "corrected: a computer that is turned on to State power and running on battery power, may crash if the user is connected to the AC adapter while it is start.»

    So, for this, all mean that these problems can be solved by an update of the bios v1.30 which is available for my Satellite m70-113?

    Please answer.

    Hi Ashish,

    The fact that the initial POST process cannot access your hard disk suggests you that there is a possible problem with the drive, maybe he is not in place correctly when power is applied to it. The contents of the disc should be OK, then I suggest you take a good backup of your system (or at least your personal data) If you manage to get your notebook to boot successfully.

    I do not think that an update of the BIOS will affect any on that since the problem does not seem to have a certain 'trigger', and if the BIOS cannot access the hard disk then no matter what version of BIOS you are using.

    Kind regards

  • Satellite Pro M70-113: modem - very slow


    I have a toshiba satellite pro m70-113 laptop. I bought it in Saudi Arabia, Riyadh.

    The problem is that when I use the modem (dialup) software from toshiba to connect to internet... the connection is very very slow... While on the same line, on my desk speed isn't a problem... on average, I get 1/4th of the speed I get on my desk... and on the same telephone line...

    What is the problem?

    Can someone help me in this... are there any configuration software that can fix this problem?

    Help will be very appreciated...

    Thank you.


    I don't know what your desktop device modem, but modems takes care of different speeds.
    You can also check the properties of the modem for laptop.
    Go to the Toshiba software modem properties and check under the tab "modem".
    You will find the maximum port speed. This should be set to the highest value.

    It is also possible that different providers use a different speed of data transmission.
    Some time ago I used a modem and I was very surprised that my speed of data transmission is different on the different suppliers.
    As you can see there are many factors why you don? t get the same speed of modem.

  • Satellite Pro M70-113: the modem speed is too slow


    I have a satellite pro m70-113 laptop.
    The problem is that I am not able to web surf, when you are connected to the Toshiba software modem that is integrated, because the speed is too slow.
    Connecting about 40 Kbps, but I can't even open the yahoo site just because it's very slow. I mean it seems that there is no data transfer... I have to wait 5 min load!
    I tried uninstalling, reinstalling the drivers, but the problem is the same...

    And on the same telephone line, when I connect to the net on my desktop, I get a decent speed. If the problem is not telephone line or my ISP, but something on my laptop hardware modem, or its drivers.

    Please can someone help me...

    Thank you, hoping for an answer...


    Please check the maximum speed of the port and set it to the maximum level. You can find it in the properties of the modem in Device Manager.

    Hi Alan

    Can you use IE and other applications if the WIFI network is not secure with WPA2?
    You can test using WEP?
    Just to be safe because of securing WLAN.

    You are right. Your model has Intel WLAN card and if you need a new driver just visit Portal Toshiba WLAn under

    I really don't know what service or upgrade of system you are using, but if everything works well you don't need any update to date.

  • Satellite Pro L500-1W4 - cannot install Win 7 Pro after changing the HARD drive

    Hi all

    I need assistance with Windows.

    I have a Toshiba Satellite Pro with Windows 7 preinstalled pro and the recovery DVD to downgrade to Windows XP Pro.
    I had to change the hard drive, so I try to reinstall Windows 7 from the recovery CD, but it does not work. He said that it is not possible to install this on this machine.

    So I tried with Windows XP CD recovery and no problem
    I'd rather have windows Windows 7 but I do not know how to retrieve
    Last information, the Windows XP CD recovery came with the laptop that Windows 7 was made by the store who sold me the computer.

    Thank you for your help

    As far as I know there is not a kind of limitation and if there is no problem with the original recovery for Win7 disc, you should be able to install it on any HARD disk that you use with your machine.
    I upgraded HDD to the SSD on my installation of picture machine and the restore worked without any problems.

    To be honest, it is not easy to say what the problem is here, but the Win7 installation disc is somehow suspect for me. I don't know what model of laptop you have exactly, but somehow, I feel you didn t get original drive Win7. Best evidence is the Windows XP Home edition recovery disk. The prinziple with Win7 is the same and it should works.

    When you use this disk you should have the menu as shown on

    This document explains how this works with the original installation disc of recovery.
