Satellite Pro S300 - Wireless do not work
Hi, I bought a Toshiba Satellite Pro S300 computer.
The problem is that I downgrade it great of Vista to XP Professional and now when I install Vista on Wireless Manager 5 wount work. Its says "enabeling Radio."
Please somebody help me and sorry for my bad English
You need to install the Toshiba value added software and install the Manager of power RF 3 G. Without these programs the map lights.
After that restore disks for installing a new HD and use and to update XP sp2, the Wireless does not work and if the card is installed XP hangs then works in fits and starts. If the card not in place, not bad at all.
Booting from a Linux CD, the card works perfectly! I assume that the driver is the problem. The wireless card is the original, an Agere MPC13A-20/R, with Toshiba p/n PA317U-1MPC.
I have found some drivers Agere, but am not sure
(1) if they are correct
(2) how to install since the machine works in a way limited with the card in place.
I checked the page of the pilot and the only available for Windows XP WLan driver is the driver of v.1.11.108 Agere.
(1) just try to install this driver. If the driver is not correct or is not compatible, then windows will not install the driver and you will receive a notification. You just have to try
(2) generally you may reinstall the driver from the Device Manager. Open network controller tree, and then you can reinstall the driver.
But this is only possible if the windows started successfully
PS: Have you checked the information of Microsoft Windows XP SP2 update on the page of the Toshiba driver.
I discovered that you need to update several utilities if you have installed SP2 on this laptop.
Got a Satellite Pro A200 2 weeks and the wireless worked well.
Then after a week there was a problem, try to connect. I was able to reboot the pc and he was able to connect.
Now it just doesn't quite work.
I can connect through the LAN and I have another laptop that connects to the router with no problems.
I checked in the Device Manager, the wireless card works correctly and I've updated the drivers for it but no. - GB.
Any help would be great.
see you soon
Try to remove the network adapter from Device Manager wireless.
Then restart the computer and reinstall newest WLan driver that you can download on the page of the Toshiba driver!
Second, you could try to set up the WiFi network using an Intel ProSet Utility (but only if you have a Wlan Intel card.)
If you have an Atheros Wlan card, then try using the Atheros Client utility for configuring Wlan
I have a Satellite Pro S300 EZ1514.
Recently I bought a SATA II 64 GB SSD to replace hard drive current cavalry. I first tried to install XP with SATA drivers rationalized in.
The installation process recognized the SSD and has the original file copied to it, but when it restarted to continue the installation process the system wouldn't boot from the drive.
Then I tried to install Vista Business 64 from the recovery disk came with the laptop.
After launching the recovery disc, the said installation process the hard drive has not been initialized and click OK to initialize now.
After clicking OK to initialize the system not restarted that at the end pointing upwards on the screen telling me to initialize the hard disk.
Then I tried initializing the disk manually on my desk.
Plugged into my office, initialized and formatted in NTFS. Plugged into the laptop to retry recovery Vista. And once again the same screen appears. Reconnect the disk SSD the Office to see that the player has is more initialized and was to be initialized again.
Then I gave up and installed the SSD on my desktop under master boot and installed perfectly fine with XP. For testing purposes I then handed the ssd with XP pre-installed in the cell to see what happens. To my dismay the computer laptop would not boot and on top of that when I put the SSD drive in the desktop only to see that the drive has been initialized is no longer and I had to reinstall XP again.
It seems that the Satellite Pro S300 series is not easy SSD and just post it self off Initialise the Solid State Drives.
This seems to be the logical conclusion that the SSDS works perfectly well on my desktop and the laptop is fine now with the old turntable hard back in.
Does anyone else have this problem or a solution?
I would still put the SSD in my laptop to save energy.
The laptop is equipped with common serial ATA HDD.
The SSD might work, but is not a must.
There are several different SSD on the market and a problem of compatibility of equipment can always happen.
Maybe an other SSD would work properly, but these are just suggestions.
just got a Satellite Pro L40-15 1 week ago and it's been downhill.
The Wireless does not work (and yes the switch is activated and drivers installed). Sometimes windows recognizes no device when I boot.
And when I stopped he said blocking down, but crashes just on this screen.
Now, I'm an advanced user, so I've tried many things. Can anyone help?
As a first step, I would recommend to use the Toshiba Recovery CD and renew the operating system.
Then update the Vista of the State. I mean to install patches and fixes Vista all published.
Check this thread:
Here you can see that a missing patches can have a bad influence on the wireless network card and the entire operating system!
I have a 6 month laptop Satellite Pro S300-100 and running Vista 32 bit. He got 4 USB slots, 1 handset that works on the left side and 3 USB2 connectors right side and these 3 suddenly stopped working. I tried different connections, memory stick, external drive, USB mouse, but they are all dead.
I've tried deactivited and operated them, no change. I checked the ports and the response of the system are that they are involved.
I had a similar problem earlier on a Tecra 9000 a few years ago and the replaced the motherboard.
Anyone has a solution, please?
Do you have the yellow marks in Device Manager?
I think that there is a hardware problem. Contact an ASP (authorized service provider) to repair your laptop.

My Satellite Pro M30 laptop is about 5 years old and is a refurb. Until yesterday, my wireless connection was very good. Although my wireless connection is running with high speed and it is connected, I now cant get on the internet without using the ethernet cable.
It is certainly a problem with the laptop itself.
A framework has changed (perhaps with a function key?) or the internel wireless card packed.
Can anyone suggest anything I can try with the laptop first before you buy an external wireless card?
I don't think there is that you can do.
The wireless network card appears correctly in Device Manager.
Make sure that the wireless network card is enabled correctly (FN + F8).
There may be a problem with the WLAN antenna. Who knows?
Anyway, if you can't get this to work once again use small USB WLAN adapter and be happy.
To be honest, is not bad idea because new USB WLAN glue can work with G WLAN or even N. The original WLAN card in your notebook is, I guess, old A/b.
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.
My satellite pro C850 1HE keyboard intermittently stops working correctly, and begins to open programs, for example, by pressing F will open the file search, C open computer this kind of thing
is there a permanent solution to this problem?
This is not something to do with installed programs is not something to do with the browser settings.
restarting the computer works in a short time, but that is a long time, it's really annoying because I use this for work and study!
> is there a permanent solution to this problem?
The question is what causes this problem? Is it related hardware or software related issue?
Why n t connect a USB keyboard just to check if the same would happen?
In case the USB keyboard would work fine, I guess that the internal keyboard failures and the solution would be a simple replacement of the defective part.
I hope some1 can help with this

Why do you think the motherboard is ok?
Maybe it s a controller keyboard problem
Did you check if the cable is correctly connected?
In my opinion if you are sure that the keyboard is ok 100% the problem to be attached to the motherboard because there is no other party that is placed between the keyboard and the mobo.
Hi all that I need help urgent because it drives me crazy. First of all, I use XP PRO. My laptop is fairly new, only around the age of 4 months, I had no problem with it at all. I formatted my laptop yesterday and reinstalled all the drivers that I downloaded here:
and everything works fine except the touchpad. I have already installed shared, utilitarian toggle the touchpad Module and I have the latest BIOS installed and reset all default settings and I made sure that the touchpad is enabled in the BIOS, but also pressing FN + F9 to enable during Windows.
I installed the latest touchpad driver Synpatics I downloaded from the homepage of Synaptics. But for some reason any, that it does not work, I don't know what is the problem here. My touchpad worked before I formatted my laptop, it worked fine and has never had any problems. Will you please tell me what is wrong because I need to use my touchpad sometimes as well, so I can't use a mouse all the time.
> I installed the latest Synaptics touchpad driver that I downloaded from the home page of Synaptics
I think that you question refers simply to the driver for the touchpad that is missing or incorrect.
I put t know how it works on Toshiba notebook Australian, but the Toshiba European Satellite Pro L300 units needs touchpad different drivers. some use the Toshiba touchpad driver and some units need a driver for the Synaptics touchpad.
In your case, I recommend this controlled again.
By the way; My touchpad is always disabled so that en external mouse is connected.
It is parameters that control it. Please check in your touchpad properties too!
I have a Satellite Pro M10 and my infrared does not work. I downloaded the zip file with the drivers from this site. Then, I uninstalled and reinstalled, but it always happens in the Device Manager under "unknown - SMC IrCC - Fast Port infrared (IR Module: HP). (with an exclamation point). When I look at the properties it says under device status:
This device does not work properly because Windows cannot load the drivers required for this device. (Code 31)
Click Troubleshoot to start the troubleshooter for this device.
However, under Driver Details is said:
I extracted the zip file in my home directory of c:\downloads\infrared.
whatever I do, it does not now. It worked when I bought it, but I have too many things on the system for a new installation. Which brings me to another question. Is it possible to re - install windows without losing all your data, etc.? I did it with other systems (95,98) Windows. But it seems that the Toshiba recovery disc means any wiping.
Thanks in advance for any help.
If your HARD disk contains two partitions and you have saved the data on a second you can reinstall the operating system on the first partition using recovery DVDs.
I had this problem for a while, and I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions to solve this problem.
I have more or less of work Satellite Pro 4270 (4200 Series) computer laptop with XP on it.
The USB port does not work. I don't know why it does not work. I tried to replace the USB module on the motherboard that has not worked. I've updated the BIOS to the latest version, has not functioned. Removed and reinstalled the drivers in XP, not worked. I'm out of ideas.
IrDA works very well.
Some suggestions please. Thank you
I understand, were you solder the module USB motherboard and then solder another module?
I mean, what have you done with the module USB, replacing? Sorry, I don't remember exactly how the USB module is connected to my mobo SP4270 seen last about the half a year ago... If the welding, I don't wonder the problem... but if not, there may be a solution...
G ' Day,.
I have a little problem with my laptop Toshiba Satellite Pro C660.
Unfortunately I had to remove the keyboard and thus dislodged the
fragile plug to connect to the computer.
The 'Shift' key refused to work since. All other keys work as usual.
The only problem is the 'Shift' button does not.
I tried to gently move the plug but made no difference so now have to
Use a USB keyboard.
Can you please help with suggestions for this problem?
Thank you for your time.
See you soon,.
I really put t know what you think when you know that there is no connection for each unique key, but for the entire keyboard.
To be honest I ve changed keyboard several times but never noticed this problem.
Are the two SHIFT keys off function?
Recently bought a Satellite Pro A300, with integrated webcam. However, when I try to use the webcam in Windows live messenger it comes up with the following error messages.
* "We couldn't start your camera. Please check that your camera is not currently being used by another program, and then try again. » *
Also this message...
* "Messenger is not available right now. Please try again later. (0x82000009). "
Now, the camera is not enabled, and Messenger works normally.
* HELP! *
When you get the message if another program uses always the camera.
So, try to disable the webcam software and other e-mail programs in msconfig.
Restart the laptop and if you want to use the webcam software you need to start the first webcam software.
