Satellite Pro M70 - how to enable the touchpad mouse by using the keyboard?

I have somehow lost the connection to the touchpad mouse. How can I activate it again by using the keyboard (I don't have an external mouse)?

You can enable or disable the touchpad with FN + F9.
Check it!

But normally, you can also find this information in your user manual.

    Your wireless network card is recognized correctly in the Device Manager, or you may notice a yellow exclamation?
    Her check first because otherwise, you can get the WLAN to work.

    In addition, you can activate WLAN with the material on the laptop switch which must be set on and the FN + F8 key combination.

  • Satellite Pro M70: How to connect to the internet using a second computer

    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. "

  • Satellite Pro M70-273: feature of the Express Media Player feature

    Two weeks ago, I bought a Pro Satellite Toshiba M70-273 'Limited Edition' (?). The model number is PSM76E-00J00QDU, SPM76, model name, production date 2006-02-21. According to the specs I found in the online user manual or in a folder with the publication references
    «TEG October 2005, art.» N0. DSSSPM70 10/05NLBE', there is a 'Express media feature' 'on some selected models "...

    It is not clear if yes or no, the model that I bought it. I have an of CD/DVD "button that I use to run my built-in dvd player (WinDVD for example), but it does not work as it appears as 'a disc standalone player' who plays a dvd (movie) without the need of Windows startup.

    To watch the movie on dvd, after using the CD/DVD button, I start in Windows, the connection in Windows XP, and the office at startup, the WinDVD screen presents the film.

    This isn't what I expect from a stand-alone dvd player. My old laptop has a 'dj function' with which you can play a cd without booting in Windows (or turning on the laptop), simply by pressing a special button on the front. What about the promised feature of the Toshiba Satellite Pro?

    Is there a feature "Express Media Player" at all? How can I check if the function is provided? I used the provided configuration, the first time I used my laptop. I don't want to use the recovery CD provided unless it would be absolutely necessary to install this missing functionality.


    Yes. Some Toshiba models use a player Qosmio (Qosmio units) and some computers laptop Toshiba supports also the Media Express Player.

    I downloaded the user manual of the Satellite Pro M70 and it seems that some laptop computers in this series come with the express media player. But unfortunately the Media Express drive was not installed and delivered with this laptop.
    See Chapter 4 of the manual

  • Satellite Pro M70-275 - where is the lid switch?


    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.

  • Satellite Pro M70 does not read the DVD of some manufacturers

    Recently, my Satellite Pro M70 stopped reading some DVDs, specifically verbatim...
    When I put in, it is just to see any disk. If I put the same disk into any other computer, even my friends Toshiba Satellite Pro M70 - than mine, even it reads normally.

    Any ideas?

    WEIRD laser could be at fault, or it is maybe dirty. Try to clean the lens with a Microfiber cloth.

  • Satellite Pro M70-275 slower than the Satellite M70-110?


    A couple of weeks ago, I bought a portable Satellite M70-110, with Centrino 1.7 GHz processor and 512 MB RAM. Last week, this computer got stolen from my apartment. (Damn them thieves low-life..)
    I wanted to buy exactly the same model again, but he could not find anywhere. Instead, I bought a Satellite Pro M70-275 because he seems to be pretty much the same thing, with a great 2 GHz. processor, it's going to be a little faster then, I thought.
    The problem is that it feels like the new is slower; I don't understand why. No more slow, as when you are working with graphics heavy, cause I don't have, but slower at startup, when this regime between programs and so on.

    The old used XP Home Edition, the new one XP Pro. This could be the problem; XP Pro requires more RAM?

    The old man had an ATI Radeon x 700, the new a x600se, but I can't imagine that this could make a difference with the applications that I am running.
    I use a Soundblaster PCIMCA card in the new. This could be a problem?

    Any ideas appreciated!

    As much as I know there is not much difference between WXP Home and Pro, and I think that the use of the PCMCIA card. Try to turn off the sound in the BIOS and also disable it in Device Manager.

  • Satellite Pro M70 - how to install Windows XP?

    I bought a Toshiba Satellite Pro M70 of second hand and I want to reinstall WinXP.

  • Re: Satellite Pro M70 - high utilization of the processor - low Performance

    I sincerely hope that someone can help you. I do not consider myself really computer illiterate, but this is where my understanding ends and I really value any assistance.

    I have a Toshiba Satellite Pro M70 for 2 years and I'm a final Defender to Toshiba. However, my operating system is slow. Average day use with Internet Explorer and Office 2007 is a laborious process that takes too much time. I have had conflicts with Trend Micro Internet Security 2008, that works perfectly.

    But turn on the computer takes forever. The CPU usage is generally high and System Idle process as well. I reinstalled Windows XP from the Boot Toshiba DVD already 4 times to nine and install everything over and over again. Each time after all to speed once again, performance is disappointing.

    I expanded RAM to 1.49 GB that makes little difference from the original 1/3 of RAM. It seems that something is slowing down the computer, but it is not visible in the process; but a certain process of svhost.exe who have the ability to handle little or the CPU usage.

    I've used Windows Gold Certified Uniblue Power Suite with a good registry cleaner. This helps a little, but after a few days, it seems only make it worse. I have a processor Intel Pentium M 1.73 GHz. search online reveals that Trend Micro IS 2008 is pretty good and demanding little capacity compared to the competing security packages.

    Is this system/software related or it could be a hardware problem?

    Thanks in advance to all!


    I doubt that it could be a hardware problem, I mean a CPU usage can get if a certain service or applications would be run in the background of the OS.

    Generally, Antivirus applications are a kind of software that could cause this problem I had a Norton System works installed on my laptop and this software needs a lot of resources that slowed down the laptop
    In addition, some applications of Toshiba which are installed and running in the background may affect performance. But these applications are required to be able to use all the features of the laptop

    However, in msconfig you could disable.
    Launch msconfig-> Startup tab and disable some processes that are not necessary for you.

    In addition, you can use the CCleaner to clean the registry and operating system

  • Satellite Pro M70 freezes everytime when the USB port is used

    Satellite Pro M70 (SPM76) crashes every time when the USB port is used.
    The mouse works, but external HD/Extarnal card sound/Memory stick causing the laptop to freeze. All the drivers are installed right, they are the most recent and have no trouble with other users.

    The devices are all compatible. Service pack 2 is installed, and all the hardware drivers on the toshiba have been updated... again, same problem.
    The toshiba is about 2 months old and have had this problem since I got it. First I thought it was the drvers, but I cleared of all (?) other options but the USB ports.


    Believe me, that's not easy to say what the problem may be. It is important to see if the problem occurs because of hardware or software may be. I recommend you to backup all your data and reinstall the unit using rescue media. On this way the unit will be factory settings and will be clean preinstalled. Test your USB devices and see what happens.

    Try to use some standard like USB stick or external HARD disk parts, because in this case, you must not install any drivers please. If you use other devices like USB webcam with own software and drivers, it is possible that something goes wrong, but what. On this path, it is not possible to say.
