Satellite Pro M70-220 - how to start the Advanced Boot Menu

Which key have to press on my Satellite Pro M70 - 220 starting Win XP, in order to enter the "Advanced Start Menu" - in other words, the menu that gives various boot options, such as safe, last good start Congiguration, start Windows Normal Mode, etc. ?

On my old laptop Satellite 5105 - S702, it was the F8 key, but by pressing the F8 key on my M70 Pro does not bring up the 'Start Advanced Menu".

The Advanced Start Menu came on its own a few days previously after an abnormal stop, so it seems that it does not exist on the M70 Pro.

Thanks for any advice anyone has to offer.



The Advanced Boot Menu can be reached by pressing the F8 key.
It s a Windows menu basic and it s any laptop it is.
It should work on all computers.

Maybe you can not activate the Start Menu advanced because the Windows operating system is confused upward.

    C: OS - Win XP Pro SP3

    > I'll be able to use the "recovery of the Expert Mode' the recovery CD to reinstall Win XP Pro (pre-installed software factory) on my C: partition, while affecting only not partitions D, E & F

    Yes, this should be possible. Using the Expert Mode of recovery, you should get the ghost window where you can select the partition where the OS is to be installed. In this case only that partition would be formatted.

    > will it be possible to format the C: partition by using the "Expert recovery" Mode, without formatting of other partitions?

    Yes, theoretically it should be possible.

    > what is the exact procedure of "Expert Mode of recovery"?
    As I mentioned above, this mode allows you to restore the operating system on a partition of some and only this partition will be formatted.

  • For Satellite Pro M70-220 laptop cooling pad

    I want to buy a block of cooling for my laptop Satellite Pro M70-220 (PSM75E) and would appreciate advice and recommendations on the most appropriate cooling pad. Plateau broken down to use the desktop, rather that the tower would use.

    The dimensions of the base of the laptop are about 34.5 cm (W) x 24 cm (P) - (or 13.5 ins (W) x 9.5 ins (D)).

    The laptop has 2 vents in fan - a vent is located on the left side (half back) of the laptop, and other the vent is located on the left side of the base in line with the side wind. Subject to correction, I feel that the cold air is sucked through the vent base and is blown through the vent on the left side. If that is correct, then I guess the cooling pad fan would blow air on the basis of the laptop, thus completing the airflow of the computer laptop cooling fan.

    Thank you

    Alan CB

    Hi Alan

    Before starting to discuss cooling pad, I want to ask you why you need. I have Satellite M70-159 and have never even think to buy this extra part.

    Have you ever watched on the net and found something that may be good enough for you?

    I've never heard of the Microsoft kernel DLS synthesizer and that's why I studied a bit.

    I found this MS developer site:

    It is said:
    The component of the Microsoft kernel DLS synthesizer provides the port of DMusic, content class miniport driver in the dmusic.sys file

    It seems that most of the problems with this kernel occur due to lack of SP2.

  • My Satellite Pro M70 itself turns off in the middle of the secuence of startup

    My Satellite Pro M70 itself turns off in the middle of the secuence of startup

    After turning on if it passes the test post and enters the menu grub (Linux + Windows) or BIOS
    without problems, but most of the time after the start of the BONE found in the start - up, suddenly it powers off the power.

    The problem becomes bigger and bigger as punishment I can boot any operating system

    As seen on messages more soon as I cleaned the vents of CPU with a spray suddenly sure I wasn't a problem of overheatting.

    Someone has an idea of what can happen?

    Thank you

    Hmm, the laptop passes the MESSAGE correctly and it stops during the initialization of the operating system. Is this good?

    Well, in this case I would exclude the RAM to malfunction.

    I put t also think that it's an overheating problem because the laptop should work a little longer until it would be closed due to high temperature.

    What about the HARD drive malfunction? Are you sure that the HARD drive is ok?

    In my opinion, you should check the HDD and maybe try another.

  • 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 usually power up when the AC


    I bought my dad a Satellite Pro M70 for his birthday and it was used for about 3 months. All of a sudden without any reason that it not power up if it is not connected to the AC. The battery registers itself as 100% charged.

    When on AC, everything is fine no problem.

    But when it is not plugged into the AC, it lights. When put under tension however you can unplug the AC and it will all work very well again.

    Any ideas?

    Should I try a BIOS update? or does anyone have any other suggestions?

    Thank you


    This problem appears at the beginning?
    Sounds a bit like electroninc power supply malfunction and in this case, you should always ask the service provider to Toshiba for assistance.
    Don t worry, seems, the guarantee is valid and each procedure must be done for free.

    But I m interesting if this will help you:
    Please, try to disable powerplay in the properties of the graphics card and do not set the CPU at low speed in Toshiba Power Saver mode fixed.
    Check this option.

  • Satellite Pro M70: Unable to connect to the WLan with ConfigFree

    Salvation in the Forum.

    I have problems with a satellite Pro M70, about gaining control of wireless connections.

    When I scan with "The Radar" I have ConfigFree for available wireless accesspoints, I get several points available, but it is not able to connect to one of them. I can read their status and see their marker of WEP encryption.

    When I try to connect to one of them, I get a pop-up dialog, that said (translated from Danish) 'suppliers another software is in control of the wireless network card. When you try to configure a connection through the classic way to windows, windows States that "windows is not able to configure this wireless connection - if you have another program to manage wireless connections, you must use it". I guess it refers to ConfigFree...?

    Is the unnamed "other provider" associated Windows or perhaps associated McAfee (Security Suite 2007)?

    If you are familiar with this problem or something like that I'd be please to know.

    Also - where can I enter keys for WEP encryption for my friends in ConfigFree WLAN routers?

    > Trying to make a connection through the classic way to windows, windows States that "windows is not able to configure this wireless connection - if you have another program to manage wireless connections, you must use it". I guess it refers to ConfigFree...?

    It should not be a ConfigFree. According to you, an Intel ProSet utility or a Client Atheros wireless network adapter might be controls the Wlan configuration!

    Please check if one of the two control the WiFi network tools and turn off!

    > where can I enter keys for WEP encryption for my friends in ConfigFree WLAN routers

    You should have three different tabs in the utility Configfree.
    The second device settings provides the list of devices, and you should see the wireless network connection.
    Choose and use the button network connections.
    There you should find some encryption settings!

    Also check the profile settings tab and the option called security settings

  • Satellite Pro S500-14Z - how to access the BIOS?


    on the Satellite Pro S500-14Z I can´t access the BIOS via F2 and can´t change the bootpriority through F12. By pressing F2 or F12 during startup, the S500 beeps and restarts. When you first start, I had access to the Bios and set the password and active supervisor module TPM. Since I have no access to the BIOS before Windows starts. Is there another key to access bios (I tried ESC, DEL, F1, INS) or how can I change the pw supervisor (I know my real password!) and disable the TPM?

    Thank you

    Hi karlS_1,

    Normally you can access the BIOS if you press F2 before Windows starts. It works with an external keyboard?

    You can change some settings in the BIOS using Toshiba HWsetup. This tool is preinstalled on your laptop and you can change the order of boot with this tool.
