Satellite Pro M70 came with disks of Windows XP?

When I got my M70 it came only with a single disc! the agifts, it came with the Windows XP Pro disc? because I have Windows Vista Beta 2 and I can't install it unless I don't I have the disc for Windows XP! becuse, I use my laptop to school and if vista do not have Word so I'll have to go back to XP!

Thanks for your help




The unit was delivered with the Toshiba Recovery CD because the help of Toshiba (on the desktop) contains an option to create the own Toshiba driver and Tools CD.
This is why only a disc.

By the way. You can create the second partition and there you can install a second OS without removing the available WinXP

  • Satellite Pro M70: Noise with laptop OFF If power connected


    I have the following problem with my new Satellite Pro M70.
    A strange volume low hissing sound that happens when the power is connected to the laptop.
    This noise occurs even with the laptop TURNED off when the power is connected.

    This sound can be heard in a noisy room, but is quite annoying when you work in a completely quiet room.

    Anyone else have the same problem?

    Hi Geo

    I presume that this adapter produce this noise. Am I wrong? Can you please locate the source of noise just?

  • New computer with Windows 7 Pro installed - also came with disks to Windows 8 Pro - what I lose everything?

    I recently bought a new computer. It was announced to come with Windows 7 Pro and Windows 8 Pro. Since the announcement, I assumed that it would be implemented for a dual-boot (something that I have never made or used it before).

    In another section of this community, I have posted a question, "what happens first – the chicken or the Egg," asking if I would like to transfer my data and applications before that upgrade to Windows 8 or after. I received responses almost half a dozen all recommend that I transferred my files prior to upgrade. With the new software of practice by hand and using a cable standard CAT5, I transferred all my files, including data and most of my applications, my old computer to the new computer. The transfer takes about six hours and I had about an hour of work later to install my pst, BOINC, Malwarebytes, etc..

    I decided that today would be the day and I would upgrade to Windows 8. There are three disks to:

    1. the claims & recovery of pilots

    2. system recovery disk for operating

    3 supplemental Recovery Disc

    However, when reading the attached brochure, there is a warning very clear that if I use these discs, I lose all my apps and data and will have to start from scratch. In many previous editions of Windows, I remember using upgrade disks. Recovery disks were what I did when I first installed the new computer.

    So, I ask, this is the only way I can achieve this? Am I condemned to throw seven hours of work? Y there is a place, less painful alternatives?

    Thank you


    Unfortunately, this is how the work of recovery discs, they do not operate like retail disk that will give you the ability to dual boot.

    Your options are limited.

  • Satellite Pro C850 - problems with WiFi after Windows update 8.1


    I was wondering if someone could give some advice on a problem I have.

    Had an adjustable C850 Pro for a few months and worked well on Windows 8.
    I myself am then harassed and intimidated by Microsoft Update in order to install Windows 8.1 and in a moment of weakness, I succumbed (got sick of the nagging).

    Since that time, my wifi is very intermittent; either I'm on another computer write this and the laptop is essentially not connected to the internet.

    For some reason any (although I didn't try it before), I can not connect via ethernet either, so I think it's probably the driver problems. (I also tried to connect the public wifi but fails).

    I tried to install the driver WiFi Toshiba 8.1 but that has not solved the problem.
    Then I noticed that I'm supposed to install a bunch of drivers in the order.

    Maximum setting to do it, but the first package (associated with bluetooth) said I have to remove the current driver... I try by "turning off", then "Uninstall" but 8.1 seems to re - install automatically and I don't know how to disable this option (I can try to delete the driver file, I guess, but I'm sure 8.1 covered too and will probably launch a drone to try me out ", if I do). *

    Any kind soul there suggestions on a way forward? Pls.

    I see in the instructions of Toshiba Windows Update 8.1 should I have uninstalled the drivers before the update, but there is not much I can do about it now. :(


    > I don't see in the instructions of Toshiba Windows Update 8.1 should I have uninstalled the drivers before the update, but there is not much I can do about it now
    All your problems with the Windows 8.1 update related to the fact that you have not upgraded the Windows 8.1 system as recommended by Toshiba.


    Back to Windows 8 (reset the system back to factory settings)
    Then, install all updates and patches for Windows 8 and follow along with the upgrade of system as described on the Toshiba Windows 8.1 upgrade page

    On the page of the Toshiba UE driver, you will find all the instruments that must be installed in the correct order and Windows 8.1 driver!

  • Satellite Pro M70 - problems with installed after Realtek sound

    Long story - but due to lack of disk space, my son removed some directories and lost avisnon sound. He seems to have deleted Realtek and Adobe Flash Player.

    Have reistallede the two but once installed Realtek there is a sharp wail when the PC is shut down and restarted AND when something is played on iPlayer or YouTube - the image isn't smooth either - very choppy. If I uninstall Realtek image on the iPlayer is good - but no sound. I installed Realtek numerus sites with the same result. The sound is OK on Spotify, for example.

    Unfortunately impossible to restore to before that he made the deletion - no doubt, he had no space to make a point of control.

    Thank you


    It strange s I ve idea now what your son removed from the HARD disk, but all the story sounds really mysterious, I mean the Realtek audio driver should not affect video playback or movie that really strange s
    A system restore is perhaps the best idea to get this problem resolved

  • Satellite Pro M70: Configfree and Wlan with WEP issue.

    I have a Satellite pro M70. With Configfree (v5.90.07), I can connect to the wireless network (with SSID) of my router and go to the internet. But when I put a WEP key in the router, and then I can not connect anymore.
    With Configfree, wireless Lan, I still can't see the network (with the name of the SSID, etc.) and I see that the network is secure. But I can't connect to the network more. This because the laptop adapter (Intel 2200BG) doesn t have the WEP key. My question is: How can I set the WEP key in Configfree? (A different key by different profiles).

    (Try to solve the problem I have downloaded the new Intel and IntelPROSET wireless drivers.) This live program asked the WEP key and makes a link without problem. Now with Configfree, Wireless LAN, I also see a connection (secured with WEP). But the rest of the Configfree program does more (CFMain.exe problem). I read in another topic that this is caused by the Intel program. You must remove this to solve the problem of Configfree. So this n t the solution.)

    My question is: How can I set the WEP key in Configfree? (A different key by different profiles).


    Firstly the Toshiba Configfree program is not software for the WLan configuration.
    This program, you can use for the diagnostic procedure and it shows you the connection properties. But it of not possible to set the cipher with the Configfree.
    It seems that the IntelProset utility has a bad influence on the Configfree. The problem is that Toshiba doesn't support any 3rd party applications.

    Furthermore if this card doesn t WLan supports WEP encryption so you can not use it.
    WEP encryption, you can set in the WLan card properties.
    You also use the 3rd party WLan application like IntelProset or Atheros utility to configure the WiFi network but encryption depends on the WLan card not on the utility!

  • Satellite Pro M70: removal of the USB device causes other peripheral USB does not work

    Withdrawal/use of a USB for a USB device causes devices on USB port to get affected.

    Satellite Pro M70-199 (2 GB RAM)
    Windows XP Pro (SP2) with all updates of Windows installed until end of October 2006.
    This laptop has 3 USB ports.
    An Eicon Diva ISDN USB modem is connected to a USB port.

    When certain devices connected to a different USB port are deleted (even if removed safely with "eject" or "remove device safely", it causes the ISDN modem to file either a double channel (64 k + 64 k) ISDN, or for the ISDM modem to disconnect completely.)

    Cause this include any memory stick USB, MP3 player (ipod and creative zen) and so on.

    Do other devices, such as USB external hard drives & sometimes external DVD USB drives, and sonetimes do not produce this problem.

    Is this a known issue?
    If it is a hardware interrupt problem, how to solve it?
    This problem is related to the modem and the laptop?

    As a note, in addition, intermittent (random) times (cannot reproduce all the time, but it happens once or twice a day) when a USB device is accessible it causes the modem USB ISDN to drop a single channel, even if the lights on the modem still show it as it is connected. In this case and the case above, the only way to get the modem ISDN USB running again is physically disconnect and reconnect.

    The reason why it is a crucial issue is that:
    (1) the modem speed is halved or disconnected
    (2) the ISP continues to full rate for a double load connection even if a channel has been dropped.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    I have Satellite M70-159 and I didn t notice any strange problems with the USB ports. I use a few of them as printer, webcam, USB, memory stick, optical mouse, and external HARD drive. The devices are recognized correctly and I always remove without option delete without danger.

    Now I have Vista pre-installed and there is no problem so far. If I understand you right USB ports work fine but there is problem with USB modem only. Am I wrong?
    Also try to contact the producer of modem support. Is perhaps the question like this known and if all goes well, they have a logical explanation.

  • 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.

    Can someone help me with this.

    It is slow, not only starting, programs opening, plays something, the browser and even to copy from the CD to the hard drive sometimes give me time 4 days left!

    Clicking on something takes forever. What's wrong?
    Need less to say that with vista no and I mean none, of my devices are busy. Dongle Bluetooth, USB disk, printer, NAS, and and...

    Hey dude,

    Please don t forget that Vista has been installed on your laptop and the additional tools of Toshiba and the utilities that control many additional features!
    There is a huge difference between Vista and early Microsoft operating systems.

    The Vista eat computer resources and many devices old don t work or cannot be installed because the 3rd device manufacturers don t provide Vista drivers!

    In my opinion an upgrade to 2 GB ram would increases the performance of laptop.
    All programs and utilities could be loaded more quickly

    Hey Buddy,

    I think you need to install the proper drivers because the other recovery disk contains bad drivers. Simply visit the Web from Toshiba: > support & downloads > download drivers

    Also Toshiba you can t get a recovery disk. You will need to contact an authorized service provider.

  • 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

  • Video capture with a satellite Pro M70: which ports and drives can I use?

    I want to edit my home movies on my Satellite Pro M70 using WXP Pro (win dvd or movie maker). I want to capture video from my panasonic camcorder that has digital strips. What are the ports that I can use and what cables do I need? I'm desperate to edit my recent wedding video to put on DVD and mail it to my mom. The panasonic website has ignored me! Any advice anyone?

    Well, as far as I know this unit has only one S-video output port. In this case, you can connect the laptop to the TV and look at the photo of laptop to TV but it of not possible to receive all the signals of TV or any other device on your laptop.
    To receive the signals, you need a composite or a s-video port.

    However, if the camcorder has a firewire if port you can send digital files through the firewire connection. But this should only work with digital files that are saved on the camcorder.
