Satellite U500 memory leak - 18 p
I have PSU8CE 18 p Satellite U500 with preinstalled Windows7 Home Premium x 64 with 4 GB RAM. When I start mode safe then memory not sunk. When I start it in Normal mode then nonpaged kernel memory develops up to 3011 MB (~ 4 days running).
I downloaded poolmon.exe and Crescent pool tag found: "AmlH" (ACPI AMLI Pooltags). In safe mode, this pool has 1 single allocation unit. In Normal Mode ~ every 73 seconds he returned new unit. Size of each unit is 524288 bytes.
Then I downloaded and installed "Windows Performance Toolkit" and run xperf.exe and xperfview.exe according to
XperfView watch battery to leak memory in the

I restored windows to State factory but still present memory leak.
Memory leaks are a common error in programming.
leak memory occurs when a computer program consumes memory, but is unable to release it in the operating system.
In your case, it would be necessary to know what application or process that runs in the background do
This can be very long process you would need to install a system of fees will need to check the memory leak after each installation of driver or another application
I am owner of a satellite U500 1 1 which has 4 GB of ram memory and hard drive HDD. There are suggestions, to upgrade up to 8 GB ram and SSD hard drive. Thanks in advance for any answers.
I took the initiative to try Mushkin 8 gb (2x4gb) 99644 sodimm pc3-8500 7-7-7-20 essentials. After more than a month in use, I had no problem.
Recently, I tried to update my ATI mobility radeon hd 4500 series of v8.17.x.x.x to v8.6.x.xx.
I downloaded the drivers but when trying to install nothing happens and the mouse cursor disappears at the bottom right of the screen.
My specs are:
System manufacturer: TOSHIBA
System model: SATELLITE U500
BIOS: BIOS Date: 27/11/09 14:35:14 Ver: 2.30
Processor: Intel (r) Core (TM) 2 Duo CPU P7350 @ 2.00 GHz (2 CPUs), ~2.0GHz
Memory: 4092 MB of RAM
Operating system: Windows Vista editions Home Premium (6.0, Build 6001) Service Pack 1 (64-bit)
Any help will be appreciated.
> I downloaded the driver
Where did you download the drivers?
Page ATI drivers directly will not work if you use the drivers provided on the official website of Toshiba.
And in general why you do a update display driver? Is this necessary?
I recently bought a brand new U500/01b ([PSU9BA - 01b 002 | http://www.mytoshiba.com.au/products/notebooks/satellite/u500/psu9ba-01c002]) laptop with a built in of DuoSense N-Trig digitizer (multitouch screen) device. The device and the software worked _perfectly_ until about a week before, at startup, the software displays a notification window at the opening of "no devices found." The touchscreen still works, but the functionality is limited (no multitouch gestures or advanced, etc.) and I can calibrate is no longer the screen.
Despite the software didn't report no devices found, the material still appears as up and running correctly in Device Manager. I have three entries under scanners: HID-compatible device x 2 and N-Trig_DIGITIZER.
I have been troubleshooting and trying to solve the problem since the week without result. I tried to uninstall and reinstall the software, uninstall and reinstall the drivers, removing devices (including deleting drivers) Device Manager and reinstall, restore the system to several different restore points, reinstall a new copy of Windows 7 from the retail disc and restore the factory default of TOSHIBA partition.
I've also looked everywhere where I can think of for the drivers updated or even earlier, but neither the [site Web from TOSHIBA | http://www.mytoshiba.com.au/support/notebooks/satellite/u500/psu9ba-01c002/download] or the [site Web N-trig | http://www.n-trig.com/CONTENT.ASPX?Page=Multi_touch] seem to have drivers for this model. The software/drivers, I have been using are in the start menu > all programs > TOSHIBA > Applications and utilities. They are the 2.224 version.
I tried only to 64-bit operating systems I want to use all 4 GB of memory. I have not yet tried a 32-bit installation.
Where should I go from here? I contacted N-Trig, but have yet to get a response. Is there a support email TOSHIBA I can write? Should I try a 32-bit installation? Are there alternative drivers available anywhere? I have a defective product?
Thanks in advance!
I found it on the Web from Toshiba site:
I hope this helps.
My 2 month old by Satellite U500 - 1 6 (Windows 7 64-bit, the newer version of the BIOS, drivers of Toshiba Homepage) occasionally freezes after a few hours of operation, and I have usually close with the powerbutton.
In addition, what is far worse: most of the time even if I stopped him on a regular basis the laptop goes down when I start windows again. He stops at the W7 windows loading screen and then starts the neverending stop & start 'loopnirvana': it stops there and the laptop restarts automatically.
When it restarts I have the option either to let windows repair or start regularly... in both cases, that the laptop crashes again and again and again... only for example the 15th start is finally successful.
I made this experience with the version pre installed toshiba "out of the box" and hoped that a new fresh configuration with a recovery CD or W7 clean would solve this.
But not, unfortunately, always the same behavior. If it never works so that started windwos my entire Setup is messed up and the time and date is set back to January 28...
More than that... I too this problem here that the driver stops working for seconds from time to time:
I sent the laptop for service inspection, but whatever they put in the report:
Verified hardware, Bios Update, stresstest 7 hours... or error (BUT also done during the first boot after receiving the device the cell phone was in above mentioned 'mode'!)
So, Any ideas what the problem may be?
Rather, I think that it is hardware related, but have no idea?
I'm about to send it back to the service in the hope that they could give me a new device?
Really, it of not funny, takes time, etc. had a toshiba before and hoped same quality here...
Once again 'clean' installation and installs only a prog per week?
As you said that this problem occurs only sometimes
This means, it of difficult or it s not possible to reproduce this problem
You said it happens after a few hours of usage
Maybe it s related to high temperature?
These issues can occur due to overheating the temperature can affect the memory modules and this would affect the functionality of the laptop.
I recommend you to check the cooling fans may be dust and debris blocking the fans
I clean my laptop cooling modules at any time using a jet of compressed air.
Don t use the laptop on the lap of e; in bed or a sofa, there always enough free space around the lid to ensure good air circulation.
I upgraded to Sierra, since as soon as Itunes is launched, the com.apple.medialibraryservice is originally a large memory leak, it keeps in ram more until she takes all (16 GB) and significantly slows down the computer.
I tried to reset the nvram and smc memory, doesn't change anything.
Does anyone have an idea on what is causing this leak and is there a solution?
Yes, I noticed this also. After that I opened iTunes, it's just a matter of time before all the memory gets used up and all departure is wobbly. In particular, bluetooth really gets bug after a certain time, and as soon as I quit iTunes, that's fine.
There seems to be a MAJOR problem (blocking/memory leak) in "subject: House", also known as start up Firefox, 26.0 Firefox Page, Windows!
-Windows 7 x 64 machine with 12 GB of RAM and high performance CPU (core i7-920)
-Comments Machine virtual WinXP SP3 (in Oracle VirtualBox) running on the same computer
-Intel Atom D525 netbook with 4 GB of RAM, running Win7 x 64
None of these machines are connected through Sync or something like that. The Firefox instance on the virtual machine is a fresh install / clean.
-100% of cpu usage for 10 seconds, (util in XP) memory usage goes up to 1.7 GB
-If "subject: House" is actually the Firefox Start Page, it blocks the computer at startup of Firefox for 10 seconds
-If "subject: House" isn't the Firefox Start Page, startup is fine - BUT if I press the "home" on the toolbar button it loads "on: House" which causes the same question once again
Sounds that there is a problem with one of the code snippets that are responsible. I've seen several reports on this issue.
You can set the browser.aboutHomeSnippets.updateUrl pref an empty string on the subject: the page of config to disable loading (new) checked to see if that helps.
You can open the topic: config page through the address bar
You must remove the ' storage\moz-security-about + origin "folder in the folder of Firefox to delete already profile stored clips.
You can use this button to go to the Firefox profile folder:
- Help > troubleshooting information > profile directory: see file (Linux: open the directory;) Mac: View in the Finder)
On firefox memory leaks cause blue screens?
If you encounter blue screen crashes, this majority refers often to an incompatibility with a device driver, especially the graphics drivers. Go to Firefox Safe Mode and disable the use of Firefox hardware acceleration of graphics.
Assuming that Firefox is closed:
Hold down the SHIFT key when you start Firefox. You should get a small dialog box. Click on 'Start mode safe' (not reset).
(If Firefox is running, use Help > restart with disabled modules to call the dialog box.)
In Firefox, open the Options of the Advanced tab dialog box:
the button Firefox orange (or the Tools menu) > Options > advanced
In the mini ' General' tab, uncheck the box for "use hardware acceleration when available.
This will take effect after you exit Firefox and start it up again (in normal mode).
Hello fellow Firefox users!
For most of us, Firefox suffers from a memory leak crazy, this can cause slowdown and perhaps even crashes. This happens mainly because when you close the tabs, the RAM, they took is always taxing your computer. Among other things cause this annoying leakage.
Recently, I switched to Firefox and has this leak. I would not put upward with him, so I put solutions. Here's what I came with.
Some addons I've handpicked, which when combined, are extremely effective.
Firefox slow acting? Try these great modules!
Get all these together and make a leak free and faster Firefox!

I have Windows Vista (service pack 2) installed on my laptop Toshiba Satellite U500 - 10L (PSU5EE). Recently, I encountered a serious problem; Password Admin Windows is vulnerable through the Start Menu (hit F12 when you turn on the laptop) machine, I mean anyone with a USB/CD boot can crack the password.
Now I would restrict access to the Start Menu - or remove the boot by USB/CD options in the Menu. I just installed the updated BIOS (2.5 WIN), but unfortunately the BIOS provides no options to restrict access to or to modify the Start Menu. I find it is a major breach of security, is their anyway to deal with this problem?
I appreciate your quick response.
Best regards, John
If you want to protect your notebook BIOS user password set - http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/kb0/FAQ9202JE0000R01.htm
After than that nobody will be able to boot up your laptop and even pass BIOS check.
This way your mobile phone will be protected.
After that I did a clean install of Windows 7 Pro 32 bit on my Satellite U500, I get more options in the control panel of the Synaptics touchpad.
All I get is a preview menu and the animated demo, but nothing else (no control scroll box, no valve adjustment of the sensitivity or accidental touch function, etc.).
I used to have a bunch full of controls with preinstalled Vista.
I uninstalled, downloaded and reinstalled the driver from the Web of Synaptics site several times, without success. Is there a solution for this?
Toshiba pilot European page provides the drivers for Win 7 64 bit.
I found the driver for the touchpad Win 7 64 bit called Alps Electric v 7.5.303.117
Try this driver, even if you use 32 bit OS
on my Satellite U500 - 11 C, the power supply is no longer recognizes (the rest green LED turns off when I plug)
I tested my diet and it's OK
I disassemble my laptop to check the connector and the power is OK of the external connector to the connector on the motherboard.
with my battery, the computer works normally (but the battery is not more)
You have an idea on how to solve this problem?
What can I check?
> Do you have an idea on how to fix this?
If the battery and the mains adapter are ok, while a single problem can cause this: faulty motherboard.
Maybe there is something wrong with the electronic power supply on the motherboard.
Of course this is only my personal opinion, but I put t see any other reason for that
My Toshiba Satellite U500 - 1DR Series notebook (Serial No. 1A058758R) is not detected by the automatic detection of TOSHIBA online system. When trying to get portable detected manually on the site, I stopped fingd the model (Satellite U500-1 DR) is listed in the list of available templates or models. I'm unable to download software/updates on the site.
If the work of autoetection doesn t you can find manually but not not using the name model but the model reference number. Your DR U500-1 has part number PSU9ME-xxxxx then please check under http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com/innovation/download_drivers_bios.jsp Toshiba download page and look for Satellite U500 with reference number or model number short PSU9ME.
Can find you it?
Please I want Upgrad satellite U500 (PSU8CE) of windows 8 and my PC is powered by the company?
What is the solution? :(
As you probably know that Toshiba will not support all models of laptop computers and all the Win8 support info you can find on http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com/innovation/generic/windows8-message
Exact list of models supported, that you can find, if you open the Toshiba compatibility matrix.
You can install the version of Win8 own to see how it works and also try to use some specific Toshiba tools available for new models of portable computers. Right now on this forum we don t have much feedback about Win8 on older models of laptops.
I have the toshiba satellite u500 1 GB of ram and windows vista home edition.
I created the recovery long Backpack CD but his injuries.
I want to format my system. I try my laptop's recovery partition, but it's not working.
Can you help me to the formatted my laptop from my hard drive recovery partion
Saying: format hard drive mean you format or reinstall Windows? These 2 words are different... You can in any case, the following text:
1 order [Recovery disk | https://backupmedia.toshiba.eu/landing.aspx] Toshiba for the money
2 copy of windows disk and install. All Toshiba drivers and utilities you can find on the [Page Driver Toshiba | http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com/innovation/download_drivers_bios.jsp]
