  • Satellite Pro P100-327 no visual don't screen the bios startup

    Hi guys,.

    I have a problem that I think has been there since I upgraded my Satellite Pro P100-327 XP to vista Business.
    At the start, I have more no Visual on the screen until I see the windows logo. Computer works fine otherwise.

    Now a year and a half later I want to load Windows 7 and I can't see the bios screen. F12, F2 or esc. do not help me even if the computer does not stall but I do not see on the screen. I have the latest version of the bios and the nvidia drivers as far as I know.

    The only thing that I did not understand everything is the 'value added package' I think it's the small "HW" program, I downloaded the latest version and clicked on load HW in the control panel. Windows has asked if I wanted to go forward and I saw nothing else after that.

    thaks a lot if anyone can help



    For me, this looks like a problem of monitor settings but I don't know m.
    You are using an external monitor or have you changed the monitoring (from simple to double mode) mode?

    In your case, I could connect an external monitor and see what happens. Have you noticed the same problem on external monitor?

    In the worst case, there is something wrong with the internal display, but this should be verified by a technician of the laptop.

  • Satellite Pro P100 - Synaptics touchpad problem with Win 7

    Satellite Pro P100 with Synaptics Touchpad, was now running Vista, Win 7 64 bit.
    The original driver had an option "disable when the external pointing device connected.

    I installed a Synaptics Synaptics_v14_0_3_C_XP64_Vista64_Win7 driver - 64_Signed_default.exe that does not have this check box.

    It works fine except that sometimes the Microsoft Mouse becomes works all the seconds that she or the touchpad to fight everyone. I have to disable the touchpad.
    So the next time I turn. If I do so without a mouse, I can't use the touchpad until I plug the mouse, turn it back on, then disconnect the mouse.

    Thank you


    Try to install the Synaptics drivers and Alps touchpad page pilot European Toshiba.
    Choose the touchpad Win 7 drivers out for a satellite L500 series.

    By the way; the touchpad can be enabled and disabled by using the FN + F9 button combination. It is not necessary to have all the options if FN + F9 works very well.

  • Satellite Pro P100-188: screen keeps blinking on and off at random intervals tension

    If anyone can help me with my computer so please PLEASE publish it because I have no idea of what is happening to her.

    I just bought a new laptop, a Toshiba Satellite Pro P100 - 188 Dual Core and I'm having a problem with it. Sometimes (not all the time) if the computer is plugged in or not, the screen flashes and repeatedly and then will slow down and its suspicious home.

    I have no idea what's wrong with it, I sent it to the store where I bought to be fixed and they just he sent to me, but the problem persisted. They say they have done tests on the machine and can't find anything wrong with it, but if that were the case, then it only would not have messed up again.

    What is just a software problem? The screen seems to flicker on and off at intervals irregular or not I'm in the middle of using it or not. All the drivers are the latest drivers and I admit now that I'm at my wits end.
    Any thoughts, anyone?


    This seems very odd. However, you posted that this problem happens sometimes and not all the time.
    In my opinion I n t think that the software could be responsible for this issue.
    Perhaps one loses the connection cable? But believe me; It's not easy to say what's wrong without diagnostic tests.
    You have suggested that you have sent the unit to the store.

    I recommend you contact Toshiba service partner in your country. Technicians must check the laptop.

  • Satellite Pro P100-124 starts upward, but nothing on the screen

    Hello world

    I'm a newbie here & laptop but my companion got a satellite Pro P100 (Toshiba Satellite Pro P100-124 PSPA4E-001001EN) & it is my asked for help. Here's the problem:

    Laptop starts to go through the procedure of starting with lights coming and cd player starts to work the rotation of fans, but nothing shows up on the screen

    I said it could be the graphics card but could do with a starting point, I'm PC savvy but on the desktop, it's my first attempt at a portable computer so please be nice...


    Have you tried this thing?

    ->, remove the battery and unplug the AC adapter from the portable computer
    -> waiting for ~ 30 min 1 h
    -> connect the two parts again and try to turn on the device

    If this will not help, then it would mean that a hardware problem serious causes this problem and you will need to contact a Toshiba ASP technician to know exactly what s wrogn.

    Good luck

  • Problem with swf and the sound

    Hi all!
    I created a flash animation that includes a sound effect (mp3). The animation works well and the sound plays as expected. But at the end of the animation, the sound is played again. I check my swf file, but sometimes a preview flash. If anyone has experienced this?

    Thank you!!!

    Not sure, but you could try adding a script framework at the end of your animation with this code:

    this.stopAllSounds ();

    This line should stop all sounds playing on this timeline, without affecting the Captivate. I can't guarantee that, but it's worth a try. Now, if your animation focuses on AS3, then the above will not work. After return to it is and I'll write the code for you, or do a search (it is not a single line/method).


  • Satellite Pro L450 - 16 M - problem with WIFI and Webcam

    Hey guys

    At first, I'm sorry for my bad English. Last time I heard about 20 years ago at school.
    Here's my problem:
    I have a Toshiba Satellite Pro L450 - 16M. My OS is Windows7 32 Bit und my router is called Easybox 602.
    Whenever I use my Chicony USB 2.0 Webcamin Skype or other Onlineapplications my Wlan is turned off.

    I can't turn off and turn on before I restarted my computer. I think I downloaded the latest driver
    from this page. I also fixed my system with the recovery CD. Please help me!

    Welcome them


    So with other words webcam and WIFI are not usable more right?
    You wrote that you did an installation of recovery using Toshiba Recovery disk: all devices recognized and listed correctly in the Device Manager? Please check this box.

    Generally the wireless network card can also be enabled by using the FN + F8 key combination.

    If webcam doesn t work I would like to reinstall latest driver of the webcam of the official website of Toshiba.

  • [Satellite Pro A200] - slow when problems of transfer and the warmth of the data.

    Hi people.

    I have a 1.5 years old Toshiba Satellite Pro A200 with 200 GB HARD drive standard. For some time, his behavior is just... weird.

    Sometimes the system slows down. She behaves just slow, it freezes frequently for a second when simple tasks such as entering the text. It; s busiest during intensive data transfers (e.g. copy files via FTP from my copy of the USB or LAN), but sometimes it happens even when no application other than Firefox does. It is not apparent, so I wonder - service it will take in terms of warranty (which means - is there a probability that you will say that everything is perfect and charge me for it?)
    The computer was once on the repair under warranty, they replaced the HARD drive with another. Is it possible that the other has problems as well (check S.M.A.R.T. discovers nothing). Or is it maybe faulty SATA controller?

    Another thing is the temperature. During the normal work (Internet, MS Word) two hearts runs at 60 * C. When the set temperature may exceed 90 * C and the computer sometimes shuts down. I guess the problem is dust accumulated inside the laptop but I do not see how can I clean.

    Go to the service of this kind of problems?

    Virus scanners can slow a system down considerably, what antivirus do you use?

    If you have a lot of programs installed, perhaps its time to back up your data and reinstall Windows. I do it myself every year since Windows tends to become bloated and slow after a while.

    With respect to the dust, you can Sauté using a can of compressed Air sprayed through the main entrance of air (when the system is off).
    Or if dust is really bad, you will need to send it to a Service provider authorized to do so and cleaned disassembled.

  • Satellite Pro P100 - screen and sound problems after upgrade to Windows 7

    Hi all

    I got my Satellite Pro P100 (model number is PSPAEE-00C006EN and the second digit of the serial number is '7') upgraded from Vista to Windows 7, and since then, some bugs seem to have had place - can someone help me on the following:

    -L' screen DIMS increments, irrespective of the fact that I have saved my power settings to stay on FULL (battery or sector)

    -No sound. Once or twice, the sound card worked and settings to say this works correctly (and you can see the movement of the graphic equalizer).
    In terms of PC knowledge, I would be 5/10 (so not a dummy, but certainly not a pro! and we tried a lot of the more obvious things)

    Thank you all


    1.) if the screen dim option doesn't properly work, I recommend you to reinstall Toshiba Value added Package. This package controls these functions, the keys FN and others. Visit the Toshiba page for an update!

    2.) did you check if the sound is muted if the equalizer work? In addition you can also try to update the audio driver might it work ;)

  • Satellite Pro P100 PSPAEE guard screen goes white/black

    I have a Satellite Pro P100-PSPAEE running Vista Ultimate. Recently, the screen started going black and white during the day. It does not seem to be asleep like nothing refreshes the screen. All I can do is hold the power button and restart the laptop. Have tried rash, the compressed air fan and have re - configure the minimum processor power management to 100%. Am still getting the problem everyone else encountered this problem and have you found a solution, I would prefer not to have to open the laptop and play with the heat sink.

    Don't you think that this problem could be related to problems of overheating?
    Eventually it s only a software problem

    So try first update the graphics driver and BIOS!

    One question; have you noticed the same issue using the preinstalled operating system from Toshiba?

  • Satellite Pro P100-438 game stuttering

    Hello world

    I bought a Satellite Pro P100-438 (PSPAHE - 001001GR) with 2 GB of RAM in May 2007. I really took my time choosing the right laptop and the card game and the comments that I thought that it would be exactly what I wanted. As he had a numeric keypad, which is a must for me. I knew all the articles indicating that Vista would be detrimental to the performance, but I was willing to wait six months for driver issues and others to be decided. And a weaker performance in regards to a lower rate would not have been a problem.

    Here again the stats of the platform:

    Core 2 Duo T5500 2 x 1.66 GHz - 2 GB RAM - 160 GB HD - DVD +/-RW DL - NVidia GeForce Go 7900 512 MB - USB 802.11abg 2.0/FireWire/Modem/LAN/WLAN / Bluetooth - DVI - 5 in 1 card reader (SD/MMC/MS/MS Pro/xD) - 17 "WXGA + (1440 x 900) TFT - Windows Vista Edition Family Premium Li-Ion-battery - 3,20 kg

    Now the problem is that all the 3D games (such as BioShock or the by now old Deus Ex - Invisible war) stutter. The performance seems to be all right, rates are usually fantastic even with the highest settings, but there are approximately every 3 seconds a stutter. Reduction of the graphics settings is not to solve the problem.

    There seems to be a lot of people with similar problems with this all-3-second-stuttering around. Usually, I'm really good at 'fix' these problems with my computers. It usually includes surfing the forums, try many drivers video, drivers modded, installation of patches or just waiting for a solution from the manufacturer. ;)

    Nothing has solved the problem so far. Here is what I tried:

    -Different drivers: those most recent Tosiba March (which is pathetic!) to the most recent available at
    -Different audio drivers for the Conexant Audio device high definition. They screw out of speakers and output, so I had to go back to drivers of Toshiba.
    -Vista updates: all the patches that are recommended in various forums and any other vista automatically updated
    -DirectX 9 .0c updates. Some said this could help because my card does not support DX10 and therefore should use DX9. Makes sense to me. DX10 seems to graphics engine so advanced being of the same Vista does not use it. Well, it was without success.
    -BIOS update. I got stuttering with the preinstalled BIOS and now I use the newest one which is 4.00 for my laptop. Did not help.
    -Disabling Vista Aero. Do not remove the stuttering, but gave a better framerate. But 100 fps or 105 fps was not the issue.

    Some people say installation XP would solve the problem, but it is not a viable option for me since I don't own a Windows XP license.

    Now I can't think of another solution, and honestly I think that it is not my task to arrive at a solution. I spent about 1400 Euro on the laptop and I would like to have is a decent customer service and the problem resolved. And if Toshiba is not able to solve it they should at least be able to point the finger the cause of the problem. Right?

    But now I still have some hope left. Maybe someone reading this found the solution to my problem and can give me a hint, because I'm always willing to try some suggestions. :)

    Can anyone help?

    I think the problem is that the NVidia GeForce Go 7900 does not support the new DirectX10 but only the DirectX9.
    The Vista operating system supports the new feature of DirectX10 and there might be a problem with the connection between Vista and Nvidia!

    I noticed that this problem occurs only play games designed for Direct10X.

    Like all the people here in the forum says, this strange game stuttering does not appear with XP installed.

    > Some people say installation XP would solve the problem, but it is not a viable option for me since I don't own a Windows XP license.
    I really put t see any other possibility to get rid of this problem install XP! As already mentioned it's nothing wrong with the laptop but with the Vista OS.

    Toshiba there perhaps the keys to spare for us?


    (1) it is very strange because the satellite Pro P100 was equipped Gbit Lan card and you should be able to use it. I think there could be some bad LAN setting in Lan Card Properties. Check it! You can access it in the Device Manager-> ECS-> Lan card-> properties. It is then a new window and you will find the different tabs. Here check the Advanced tab

    (2) what to say, Toshiba seems different designs for laptop series with different hardware configurations. Your P100 was not equipped with the internal mic. This is why you must use an external mic.

    (3) sorry, buddy, but I do not agree with you.
    This isn't a hardware problem. You use the keyboard language settings simply false. Yes! It s a matter of adjustment.
    I assume that you use the English (United Kingdom) and non-English (United States).

    Now, I tried looking for these drivers on Toshibas as well as the NVIDIAs Web sites.
    No luck.

    Thanks in advance!

    What to say the graphics drivers that are published on the Toshiba page are the latest graphic drivers available from Toshiba

    If this driver is not compatible with your game, then the last resort might be a driver a 3rd party site.

    These drivers may be used only at your own risk but using the 3rd GPU driver may cause overheating of the GPU chip.
