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?

  • Satellite Pro M70 overheats and turns off

    Need to support some tech with this problem.

    Satellite Pro M70 constant over heating problem. After use of 20-30 minutes of normal (web navigation etc.) the bottom of the laptop becomes really hot near the fan, unbearably hot to the touch.
    If I play games or do whatever it is cpu-intensive, it will end by the smell of the burning and power off.

    All this time the CPU fan never turns! Just lets him get more hotter and hotter. Strange thing, that's when you start first upward, the spins of CPU fan for about 5-6 seconds to make it work! Already tried to clean it, was not very dirty, the fan is not stuck, it runs if you blow...
    Update I tried to the latest version of the BIOS overheating again...
    Tried all the toshiba utils for cpu temp monitoring etc., they indicate the CPU get more hotter and hotter much more of 60 c +, but none of them (or other 3rd party utils) can detect the fan...!

    Fix for that or is it just bad fan / design of the temp sensor?

    > Already tried cleaning...
    Yes, but how did you do that?

    In the past, I have separated three Satellite M70 notebooks and was surprised inside, how much dust has been placed behind the cooling rack. After notebook professional cleaning was much quieter and has been properly cooled.
    Maybe the grease thermal CPU and graphic should be replaced also.
    After a long period of use, it seems quite dehydrated.

  • 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 - 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

    > but I had to download RegCure - this will come off if I restore
    Using the recovery disc disc HARD integer should be formatted, so you will need to download RegCure

  • Satellite Pro A100 PSAAPE: WLan signal off the power switches when you restart

    I have a pro satellite a 100 psaape.
    Whenever I reboot the signal turns off wireless.
    I have to manually enable the wireless switch to get a signal to go online.

    Is this normal or is at - it a way to get this automated so that it is always on.


    This is normal since the needs of subssystem wireless initialized manually by the user. But I think it should probably be an option to automate the it.
    I would like to check it out and give some feedback. On the other side, you should look for some options like 'turn on wireless to start windows' and so on...

  • 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 and (not) working with projector


    I have a Satellite Pro M70 (model PSM76E-00100KEN), and when I connect it to all a projector, it appears via the projector is the image of the office.

    The laptop continues to work OK, but the projected image never changes the background image I have on the laptop.

    On the power of the laptop Windows XP logo comes at a time, but then other changes of the display appear on the laptop.

    It has ATI mobility Radeon X600SE graphics card. This card allows 2 screens and when I activate it it starts flashing number 1 on the cell phone and number 2 on the projector, but still shows only WinXP only on the laptop.

    Any ideas on how to get the two to work together?

  • 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.

  • Question about Vista performance on satellite Pro M70

    I was wondering if anyone knew a lot about the performance of vista. For example, if you run a game under vista it run worse than in Xp because the operating system uses more than the power of the computer?


    For two weeks, I use Windows Vista on my Satellite Pro M70. The laptop is not Vista capable, but I am very satisfied. It works very well. I tried to install and play older games like Far Cry and IGI2. It works perfectly without any problems.

    The set comes with 512 MB of RAM. As I said it works well, but I think that it will work much better with more RAM. I think I'll buy another 1 GB module. With 1.5 GB of RAM, I believe that the unit will operate like a rocket. :)

    Which laptop model you have?

  • Satellite Pro M70-113: Express Card slot - what for?

    I guess that your average slot on the right side of the laptop.
    Well, the express card expansion slot can accommodate two standard module formats: an expressCard/34 and expresscard/54 module to the module. An expressCard module is small, modular add-in card technology based on USB and PCI Express interface.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
