the uncorrupted driver.

* Please indicate if there are any other installation information that I'm aware of.*

Thank you very much for any assistance anyone who can offer.



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.
If you have installed Windows XP you need to update the operating system to the State.
All service packages must be installed!

    The laptop uses a simple 2.5 SATA HDD.

    Generally all HARD drive size should be compatible because the SATA controller has no limitations.

    > 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?

  • 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.

  • Satellite Pro M70 does not see HARD drive sometimes

    Help me!

    My computer does not see my hard drive but see Installer and another computer.
    My hard drive is working and I put the new drive hard but computer does not see.
    And when I install XP on the computer I can see HDD format during the installation.
    And when prawns my computer I do not see the HARD disk again.

    Help me please


    I think that it s a HDD issue naturally it s really strange that the HARD drive is different sometimes and sometimes it s is not visible, but I doubt that it could be software related issue. That's why I think that it s a drive HARD and in my opinion, you should check if other HDD SATA runs correctly.

    I have a portable Satellite Pro M70 under Win XP SP3 and would be very happy of little help and answers to the following problems:

    1 Wireles Internet connection problem: my laptop Satellite Pro M70-220 (part number: PSM75E-00D008G3) is an adapter Intel(r) PRO/Wireless 2200BG Network Connection, with driver version, according to Device Manager

    I am staying with someone, and I'm trying to use his internet connection through its network (WPA2) secure wireless home.
    I could connect my laptop to the wireless network, but I can not get Internet Explorer and Outlook Express to work on it.
    I tried the Intel Wireless driver update to the latest version of the driver, but got the same result, and I'm back to Driver version

    2. wireless driver update: site Web de Toshiba advised me for the two years that there is a driver update available (Atheros Wireless Driver v for my laptop, but I have NOT installed, because the wireless network adapter Intel(r) PRO/Wireless 2200BG, NOT of Atheros.

    Ques:am I correct?

    Question: Why the Web from Toshiba site recommends the Atheros wireless driver update?

    Thank you


    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 M70 Recovery - preservation of existing partitions

    The HARD drive of my Satellite Pro M70-220 (PSM75E-00D008G3) has 4 left, 3 of which I created with Acronis Disk Director Suite v9:

    C: BONE
    D: Progams
    E: data & downloads

    If I use the supplied with the notebook restore CD, I'll be able to preserve the structure of the partition?

    What are the installation options detailed which are available when you use the recovery disk?

    Thank you



    If you use the recovery disk Toshiba your whole HARD drive will be wiped, so you will have lost the existing partitions and all files that you have stored on the HARD drive. So back up your data first, before launching the Toshiba recovery disc.

    The point is the Toshiba Recovery disk restore factory settings if the HARD disk will be wiped and you return the score of the first State when you used the laptop.

  • Satellite Pro M70 - what HARD drive can you recommend?

    I have Satellite Pro M70 and I have a 60GB HDD that I see what it s SATA 8 MB of buffer memory. The processor it s 1.73 GHz. I see that there is the Samsung typical 160 GB and the Western Digital Scorpio Blue 160 GB at the same price, which is better?

    And for only $ 11 more there's a Scorpio blue Western digital 320 with even 8 MB buffer than other 2. But I don t think so 320, that's a lot for Satellite Pro M70, and I have an external drive 2.5 "250 GB, data with this is not problem.

    What the best solution for this laptop? I don t want to burn now the phone LOL.

    Thank you


    If your laptop is already equipped with SATA interface, you can use each HDD with SATA1 or SATA2 port on the new SATA interface there is no limit on the old standard IDE

    It s your choice what HARD drive you buy because I put t know your needs, but in my opinion it makes no difference which manufacturing you buy the HARD drive. All hard drives are similar and there is no significant difference (performance).
    I made good experiences with Western Digital and Hitachi hard drives.

    By the way: you can buy a HARD drive with 7200 rpm or 5400.rpm. Latter is faster but requires more power. In my opinion, this is useful if you often work with large files.

  • Should Satellite Pro M70 driver SATA?

    Satellite Pro M70 must SATA driver for HARD drive?
    If yes where can I find it?


    Hmm. Satellite Pro M70 is a bit older, but it supports the SATA HDD controller and usually the SATA drivers should be included.

    As far as I know that Windows XP should include SP2! This is important.
    In addition, you must include the driver AHCI (Intel SATA AHCI Controller V5.1.0.1022) for Win XP.

    Usually, this driver should be required to get the XP working on the M70.
    Just Google for this Intel SATA AHCI Controller driver
    Page Intel should also provide this driver too
