Satellite Pro M70 - connection network wireless & query Update Driver problem
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 22.214.171.124, 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 126.96.36.199, but got the same result, and I'm back to Driver version 188.8.131.52.
If you'd be grateful if someone could advise me on what could cause this problem and how to solve it.
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 184.108.40.2066.2) 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?
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 http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/wlan/
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.
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... : http://img360.imageshack.us/img360/2783/12042007366copyod1.jpg
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?
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.
My computer has a processor Athlon 64 x 2 4200 + and 2 GB of RAM, with XP2 Pro. I have a Linksys WRT54GS broadband router and connected with Virgin Media.
My daughter gave me an old laptop a Satellite Pro 4600 with a 747 MHz Celeron processor, 384 MB of RAM and XP2 Pro has an Intel Pro/100 VE Network adapter. I set up a Linksys Wireless - G Notebook Adapter with SRX (model No. WPC45GX), so that I could use around the House. However when I try to connect to the home network, although he "finds" a list of networks, I am unable to connect and get an error message - "Windows cannot connect to the selected network (my home network). The network can be is no longer in range. Please refresh the list of available
networks and try again. »
I tried to connect with laptop computer in the same room as the router, but get the same message. In the Manager of peripheral devices, network cards, the two are shown and both work properly, but in the taskbar there is a red cross shown on the two icons, they say that a network cable is unplugged, but I don't have a cable network.
The other tells me that the wireless is not connected.
I presume that the adapter works as it can 'see' wireless networks, I used Lynksys support to verify that all router and adapter settings are correct.
My wife has a new laptop and is able to connect to the home network with no problems.
Please can someone offer advice or assistance.
for some reason, you need to turn off your wired connection (cable) and use the client of the PCMCIA wireless network card. Maybe just the problem that your system can not separate the two network connections and gets an error it s. You should also visit the site Web of Linksys and download the latest driver and the customer for the card, so you can make sure that the software is up to date.
Another good idea would be to visit www.microsoft.com and the support center for any 'knowledge base documents' which could probably solve the problem.
As your machine is really old and no one is using PCMCIA cards more, you may wait a long time for an answer in this forum. Maybe you should check the site from linksys for a support section. Maybe they could help you...
I have a Satellite Pro 2100 ad I used successfully a PCIMCIA 802. 11b card wifi for two years.
Studying the manual, I discovered that the notebook is "wifi ready" (it has a wifi switch, a switch wifi of Alt - F8, and a section of the manual).
I opened a Bay and found out a mini-pci slot. That's why I bought an Intel 2200 BG wireless adapter and I put it inside, which connects the sons of two antennas, located in the Bay. Finally, I was ready to son mask 11 and 13, as suggested in many forums. But when I put the card inside, unknown electrically. It seems that the mini-pci slot must be Electric.toutes impossible. My Bios is not impossible, but it.
In another Bay close to the mini-pci card, I discovered an empty shell for a chip. Is this an impossible chip?
As far as I know that this unit is about 4 years old and at that time the unit is tested with the wireless network card with the PA3212U-1MPC part number. This map has been tested, is also compatible and can be used.
I put t know what is going on exactly in your case, but new material should be recognized and the driver must be installed. I put t know what you mean exactly, but can you please explain exactly the situation?
The card is correctly recognized and installed in the Device Manager?
You can use FN + F8 key combination to activate the wireless card?
I thought that in the future come lightscribe Slim DVD - RW. Is it possible to remove the build - in the disc that came with the computer, with a slim-line DVD - RW. I think the connection, it is standard on all readers optical slim for laptops, or is it IDE/SATA or something like that?
Physically, it is possible to remove all parts of the laptop. On your device should not be a problem at all. The problem is the compatibility of the player.
Each car will not work (can not recognized correctly) on each laptop Toshiba and, in my opinion, you should check the compatibility of the player by the service partner before buying one of them. Your unit is a mobile most recent with fantastic super multi DL drive. As James said, wait and you'll see if Toshiba will be those and also compatible drivers for your device.
I downloaded the new driver for the chipset intel 915GM, and when I install games doesn't seem to work properly, that is to say he's going to choppy when you move the mouse over the buttons.
If I go back to my old driver, everything seems fine. I don't mind using an old, I'm just confused why it will not work properly. The Readme file included with it just confuses me, but it says something about the installation of a patch for its hi-def?
I have the same unit but with inside ATI graphics card. Sorry if I misunderstood something, but why you want to install driver chipset? Must the chipset driver be updated until you try to install the graphics driver?
In any case I recommend you to use only the designed Toshiba chipset driver. It is tested and adapted for this hardware platform. I'm not 100% sure but I assume that your graphics card is with shared memory. Am I wrong?
My M70 lost (I will follow soon!). Windows XP has stopped working, registry problems. I finished by using the Toshiba Recovery disk and reformat the hard disk. Said again there is some registry problems and crashing.
One had similar problems?
If your laptop is always report registry errors after having re-installed the operating system from the recovery disc, then it is likely that your hard drive has errors. The Windows XP registry is composed of several files (or urticaria), and the installation process will always be located in the same area of the hard drive.
I installed win7, everything seems to work ok, but in device manager it is a yellow exclamation on mass storage controller.
Can you please if I can get this driver and the name of it.
Your help is appreciated
Perhaps you need chipset driver? :|
Check the type of chipset of your notebook and then visit the page for Intel and looking for Win 7 drivers that would be compatible with the chipset.
The Everest Home Edition is a useful tool which can help you to obtain information on the pieces of hardware in your laptop.
I have a Satellite Pro M70 and the wireless stopped working. The yellow light lights up for a few seconds for the machine to wake up but then turns off. I rebooted several times, but that did not help. In your reply please clarify abbreviations - thank you!

Have you tried to update the driver WLAN? You can find it on the Toshiba site or portal driver WLAN:
Have you checked for yellow exclamation marks Device Manager?
Check if the laptop WLAN switch lights up and I can disable/enable WLAN with FN + F9 on my Satellite phone.
I have problem with backlight in my laptop (Toshiba Satellite Pro M70-275). I think that the problem will be solved completely if I find where is the button of the cover.
I hope someone can help and guide me to the location of the switch.
Are you sure that the problem is the lid switch? Normally if the backlight doesn t work on the screen inverter FL needs to be replaced.
What happens if you connect an external monitor to the laptop? You see an image?
The FL switch is normally placed under the cover of the display. It s a little trickier to Exchange because it is necessary to remove the plastic cover of the screen.
Maybe you should ask a technician for laptop to help.
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.
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.
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
My Satellite Pro M70-132 have problems with Wi - Fi connections (WiFi built in)... Generally, when the connection is excellent (indicator of windows), the pings are slow - very long time: 1212ms, 325ms, 645ms, 2112ms, 91ms, s 168ms... etc 'demand time limit has expired' (or sth like this).
I have updated with the latest version of the Intel WiFi driver - it does not work...
I installed new system - it does not work...
Is it possible, that LAN WiFi is dead on my M70-132? How can I check before sending my 'Toshi' to the service?
(BTW - built-in Bluetooth has been switched off...)
I was tempted to access with several AP and also ad hoc. Every time, same results... connection strong-great but pings are slow... and often ping timeout...
The IP address has been set manually and automatically - it does not work... too multidimensional :-(
It's not metter WEP encryption is enabled, 'on' or 'off' and no authentication method does not change the situation with WLAN...

If the work of WLan connection and you are connected to the router so I guess everything's ok.
Time to ping depends on not always the strength of the signal.
If you ping other ip on the net if the time depends on the provider and type of connection.
But if you ping your WLan router and it s very slow so it s a bit strange.
If you think there could be something wrong with the Wlan card then you can try asking for help ASP.
I have a Toshiba laptop Satellite Pro M70 with a RTL8139/810 x Family Fast Ethernet NIC use this, the laptop was connected to a desktop PC, whereby it is connected to the internet via a modem ADSL (USB) on the desktop. The laptop runs XP Pro; the desktop has XP Home.
My laptop has been a nasty virus. When removing it, he lost the ability to network. I tried "repair network", but he could not find an IP address. In the end, I had to manually set an IP address for the network to work again. You use IPCONFIG release and renew the IP addresses that failed - unable to connect to the DHCP server.
He could now see the Office network and Exchange files across be it, but it could no longer contact internet.
I decided to reinstall the OS on the laptop, but this does not solve the problem. I still have to manually set the IP on the laptop. I can connect two PCs, but does not see the internet from the laptop on the network.
If I connect the laptop directly to the internet via the modem, it works fine. I can even access the internet from the computer on the network when this is the laptop that has the internet connection.
The virus could have damaged the Ethernet controller, or she affected somehow?
Is it possible to test?
Have you advice?
The virus was detected on the laptop you so maybe your PC has also been affected.
Did you check if the laptop and the PC using the same workgroup?
XP supports a help option. There, you might choose the Internet Connection Sharing Troubleshooter. "
Maybe it helps
Im having a problem, I can not update my bios, I downloaded the right bios file, but when I try to update I get a bsod just until it begins to Flash the bios.
The biosfile I downloaded is:
Satellite pro M series
Satellite pro M70 (PSM76)
Its the bios 1.70 for win xp
IM also of problems with my sound, I downloaded the rather and installed, but there is no sound.
IM using Windows XP SP3
BIOS update is necessary? Or what is the intention to update the BIOS?
Usually if you have some serious problems, the BIOS isn't essential update
With regard to the sound:
You can solve the problem in Windows XP, install the KB888111 and KB835221 hotfix before you install the audio driver.
