Satellite Pro U400 - 15 p - BSOD if I install Windows XP
I bought a Toshiba Satellite Pro U400 - 15 p. Unfortunately I can't install Windows XP Home Edition, because the error pops up on the beginning of the installation (nr of error: STOP: 0x0000007B (0xC0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000).) I couldn't install Linux as well.
Is this normal?
What should I do before installing Windows? Should I first all the drivers? And how to install without Windows?
Maybe it is some property damage?
PS. I'm not very good with computers, so I need simple explanation (step by step - how to install Windows). ;)
Use NLite software and include files
on the Windows XP disc
Then take this new drive and use it for booting and Installing Win XP.
I have a problem with my bluetooth device. I have Toshiba Satellite Pro U400.
My previous operating system was Windows Vista business and I just replace it with Windows 7.
Since I installed it my device Bluetooth does not work anymore.
I have had no problems with it with my previous Windows.
Now, the following messages will appear: "Bluetooth stack for windows by Toshiba is incompatible with this version of windows" I have windows 7 Professional.
I tried to update the drivers, but I was told that I have the best and latest drivers.
Can someone help me?
Seems that you are still using an old battery Bluetooth.
You this should remove the system and need to install a new one which you can download here:
You can find the pile of BT for Win 7 32 bit and 64 bit version
I bought a laptop Toshiba Satellite Pro U400-130. The operating system is Windows Vista 32 bit.
I have a problem when I try to quit the Menu Start-Shut Down laptop. The system will reboot after that. Then if I select closes without connecting to my account, it really stops.
Please, could you help me with this?
It's a little confusing because you said if I select shut down without logging in to my account, it really stops.
Say you stop without connection?
However, I think you make a mistake.
Make sure you have all the Service Packs and hotfixes installed for Vista.
Maybe the button closure is misconfigured. The default action is sleep. To verify this action. Open a command prompt and enter
There you can change the action of power button in the start menu.
Just bought Satellite Pro U400-12y with Vista Business pre-installed (1 GB preinstalled memory).
However, the startup is very slow and actually the computer seems to work in a time warp.
Any ideas? Is there a fundamental problem?
Yes, I have an idea.
I think that the high amount of background processes affect the performance of laptops.
He should know that the U400 supports many different features and these features are controlled by different applications.
If you want you can start the msconfig and disable some unnecessary and unimportant process. Take a look in the Startup tab.
In addition, I recommend to disable and remove the preinstalled software called Tempro.
I did it on my system, and now it runs much faster
I recently bought the Toshiba Satellite Pro u400 - 15 p. This notebook is originally without any operating system included. I installed Windows XP Home SP3 on it and downloaded all the drivers from the Web from Toshiba website. Everything works well except the WiFi - RTL8187B.
Driver has been installed correctly, when I turn the WLAN on everything is always OK, but when I connect to a network wireless Windows XP hangs after some time - without notice or BSOD - and the only thing I can do is to restart the PC holding down the button for 5 seconds.
-installed the latest BIOS (v3.70),
-installed the last version of drivers available (v6.1150.1112.2008)
-tried how it works on Vista Home Basic - it does not either, but on Vista only connection must be reset.
I searched on the web (perhaps not all), including this forum, but I was unable to find a solution.
Now I am seriously considering warranty claim, please help me to avoid that it ;)
It's really strange.
Are you sure that this happens because of the WLan card activated 100%?
I mean there could be another reason for this gel
I'm U400 too and I m running Win XP and Vista without problem!
At that time, I m using WiFi and everything works ok
I think it s not a Wlan related question, but there must be another reason why this laptop locks maybe a problem of RAM or something like that.
I have a Toshiba Satellite Pro U400 (PSU41E) running Windows 7 x 64 and I try to update the BIOS to version 4.70 to 4.00.
Whenever I try to do it from Windows using WinPhlash which comes with the download on the Toshiba site it seems to freeze when you try to Flash the new BIOS.
I connected as the local administrator, tried to use other programs flash and even tried to do from a USB flash drive with no luck.
Can someone please help me and explain how do I update the BIOS?
> tried to use other flash programs
Never use other flash programs! In the worst case, you could damage the ROM module and then it must be replaced. Use only the program flash Toshiba that is tested and designed for laptop and the version of the BIOS.
The update of the BIOS program is also designed for Windows, it s a Windows Update program.
Satellite Pro U400 wasn t comes with Windows 7 so I guess you did your own installation. Value added package is required for the update of the BIOS program and can be downloaded on the European driver of Toshiba download page where is your laptop model:
http://EU.computers.Toshiba-Europe.com > support & downloads > download drivers
I HAVE a PORTABLE Satellite Pro U400-18 a PSU45E computer AND I INSTALLED WINDOWS 8 64 bit BUT I can't FIND the DRIVERS WINDOWS 8 FOR MY MICROPHONE. (AUDIO DRIVERS)
PLEASE CAN SOMEONE HELP? Thank you
There is no special driver for microphone.
Audio driver controls the microphone and the noise.
By the way: what mic do you mean? The intern who belongs to the webcam?
Only the microphone is working correctly by using an external headset?
I have a Toshiba Satellite Pro U400-130 (downgraded from Vista to XP) with the Conexant High Definition SmartAudio 221 "audio card" installed.
Although this seems to support HD audio, I can't find any option to use or activate the "Stereo Mix" option in the Windows console. I tried a few settings to registry and some different drivers, but so far, the option remained absent.
I know this forum and other comments on the net that Conexant audio cards do not support the stereo mix, but I was wondering if someone could confirm that this is certainly the case for SmartAudio 221?
Similarly, anyone know of another method to record the sound 'as heard' on the computer? So Far, the options appear to be a) buy an external sound card, or b) connect the plug headphone mini-jack on the mic with a cable jack.
After using a p3500 old Portege of 8 quite happy with this function (actually pretty basic), it is very disappointing to find that this card cannot support it.
See you soon,.
Select this option.

> I know this forum and other reviews on the net that the Conexant sound cards may not support stereo > Mix, but I was wondering if anyone could confirm this is certainly the case for SmartAudio 221?
I can confirm this because I have a laptop (NOT from Toshiba one) that was equipped with the Conexant audio chip and the other laptop (Toshiba Satellite a series has) that supports the Realtek audio chip.
The machine with Realtek audio chip contains stereo mix and the other non-Toshiba unit that supports the audio chip Conexant does not support the stereo mix
As far as I know the update of the driver won't help you because it looks like a hardware limitation of chip Conexant!
However, thanks for the info about the Virtual Audio Cable tool.
I think I'll try it next time
I have a Satellite Pro U400-160.
I need to replace the battery and the charger of my Toshiba, but I am wary about compatibility issues.
Any battery for Satellite Pro U400 is suitable for mine?
As I can't find which batteries are specifically suitable for my computer.
(For example: is this a: http://www.amazon.es/Bater%C3%ADa-Toshiba-Satellite-U400-11V-7800mAh/dp/B0051A9Y88/ref=sr_1_cc_2?s=aps&ie=UTF8&qid=1366885340&sr=1-2-catcorr&keywords=satellite+pro+u400?)
Is there a quick way to check if a battery / charger are compatible?
Each battery and adapter you get from Toshiba has specific part number. All you have to do is use this same part number and order. You should be able to find on the internet.
You can also get compatible parts you are ordering by the Toshiba authorized service provider in your country.
By the way: all U400 models have the same construction and the similar specifications then all the batteries specified for U400 can be used on your U400-160.
yesterday I used to turn on my laptop (Satellite Pro U400 - 14) and it worked fine but after 1 minute my screen stopped working. I tried to restart the PC, and it worked OK again. But I turn on my laptop today and it didn t work at all. Everything is OK, PC works fine, everything is good, but only the display is black.
I Don t know what happened with my laptop. :/
Is there anyone who knows the answer to this problem?
Thanks for all your answers.
> Everything is OK, PC works fine, everything is good, but only the display is black.
Of course, this isn't all right if nothing appears on the screen
Connect an external monitor to check if you would be able to see something on the screen?
Do this! Usually you should use the FN + F5 to alternate between the monitor internal and external.
If this is not possible and nothing could be seen on the 2nd monitor, the graphics card problem can cause this.
I have a Satellite Pro U400 13A running Windows XP Pro and have startup problems.
The computer was working well until that last Wednesday when I modified the settings of advanced management power in how he reacted to the closing of the lid [hibernate] or pressing the power [on hold] button. Then, I closed the lid that I had to leave in a hurry.
About 2 hours later, I opened the lid to take what I was doing and to a complete stop, but I got a partial summary leading to a bluescreen with the logo "XP" just to the right of Center and no home screen or directly in the Windows desktop as expected. Then, the computer does nothing.
Pressing ALT + DEL shows that both operations are underway - "Windows logon" and "Connection", but the selection does nothing.
I left the computer up to 6 hours, in the hope that it was a lengthy process that prevented it go further but still the same blue screen rest.
I forced a shutdown by pressing the power and then restarted in the start menu [Safe Mode etc.].
According to the boot option I then select [I tried all the] bothers me on the same position that I started with - blue screen with "XP" logo.
I don't have a recovery disk, nor do the recovery option of disk in the advanced boot menu. I am at a loss.
I sent the problem to technical support Toshiba but no response.
What are my options?
> I don't have a recovery disk, nor do the recovery option of disk in the advanced boot menu. I am at a loss. I sent the problem to technical support Toshiba but no response.
Seems you have to reinstall new OS.
If you don t have disks or functional HARD drive recovery option, then I would recommend ordering the disc from here:
Then you can reinstall the OS in order to get the workbook
So I have no idea what caused this minute, it's nice, I look at things on the next screen thing 4od is empty and not coming back so I hold down the power button to restart and a black "windows boot manager" is displayed and I can not fundamentally get off this page...
It is said:
Windows could not start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To solve the problem:
1. Insert your windowsinstallation drive and restart your computer.
2. choose your language settings, and then click "next".
3. click on 'Repair yourconputer.'
If you do not have the disk, contact your system administrator or computer manufacturer for assistance.
Info: the windows boot configuration data file is missing required information.
I do not have installation or recovery discs, I used another computer to burn a disc recovery ISO put it in and nothing happened.
I would like to ring toshiba but I don't have any minutes left this month and I don't have access to another fixed telephone/phone
I'm really confused as to what to do, each other times as my laptop is messed up, I just did a recovery of hard disk and restored to factory settings by clicking on f8 but it doesn't work this time
I can't afford a new laptop or taking it to be repaired so if anyone knows what I can do please help!

Oh I forgot to tell my computer toshiba laptop satellite pro u400
It came with windows vista preinstalled
I think it is just a software problem (Boot Manager).
Try to repair the operating system by using HARD disk recovery;
Press F8 why portable power.
Then choose fix my computer, then choose disk HARD recovery.
If this is not possible, order the disk recovery from here:
Then, you will be able to reinstall the OS using the recovery disk
My friend Satellite Pro U400-18 s will not start.
Pass the initial Toshiba screen, I had to check it out for the PC tech guy, and they could not get pass this screen as well. However, they confirmed that the hard drive has been authorized. They suggest that the motherboard is broken?
Can anyone help? And where can I get a replacement from? I have no recovery disks, like most of the GUY's, I have not read the instructions.
Any help would be really appreciated
Who are these guys from tech PC? Maybe Toshiba service provider?
To get the new motherboard will be problematic, so I recommend you contact the nearest authorized Toshiba and ask for help. They can order the new Board of Directors for you.
I need help with a new hard drive for the Satellite U400-153. My wife and I have a laptop (canada) U300 as well with a hard drive of 160 GB and a laptop U400-153 (europe) with a 120 GB HARD drive. I wanted to put the larger HARD drive in the U400 but the screws that hold the HARD drive in the laptop are closer together on the 160 GB HARD drive as this 120 GB HARD drive and so I can plug the HARD drive, but I can't replace the casing on the bottom of the laptop. I want to upgrade and put in a new HARD drive, but I can't seem to find any info on weither all readers will be the right size. will be the screws on this form? How will I know
MK3265GSX Toshiba 320 GB 2.5 "hard drive SATAII 5400 RPM 8 MB Cache - OEM
Does it matter what company it comes? I thought I got it was weird that the Satellite U300 would not transfer more easily.
If anyone has any ideas please let me know...
Theoretically, you can install each HARD drive with SATA 2.5 form factor interface in Satellite Pro U400.
If you install a new HARD drive in Satellite Pro U400, you must use the old disk cover/case HARD to install.
I put t know what you mean exactly with that, but maybe you can upload a photo to make it clearer.
Finally and above all it doesn t matter what company it comes. You can use a Toshiba or another company HARD disk too like Western Digital, Seagate, etc..
I have a fairly new Satellite Pro U400 - 24 hours (seven months), where a crack appeared just above the DVD drive, close to the screen where the slot ends. I know for sure that I havn't dropped it, so I just want to know if it is a problem that everyone knows? If the framework becomes fragile due to heating (it's pretty warm when he must preform)
I put t really know why this happens, but on my Satellite U400 I couldn t notice such a problem. I have a year now and it works perfectly and the case doesn't have a crack or something.
In my opinion, you should contact an authorized service provider. Guys can order a new replacement part and swap it for you! :)
