Screen broken on Satellite M70-337
After letting down my laptop, the screen broke, leaving me with 10% visibility.
Can someone tell how to swith the RGB video using the keyboard so I can then display the image on a TV?
Also, is there a way to put a blank dvd in the drive and a command to copy the contents of comps on it via the keyboard?
The model is Satellite M70-337.
Have tried to connect the rgb then start the machine and also by pressing FN + Ff5, no response, although it seems to work very well, out of the screen!
Thank you very much.
If you want to connect your laptop to the TV I recommend to use the S-video cable. When connected using the FN + F5 combination and switch to the TV only. Also, be sure that the S-video port is correctly enabled on the TV.
Sorry, but can you tell me what is the problem with the TouchPad? Why you want to use the keyboard only? There are just screen problem?
Hello, I hope someone can help with this problem.
In the past months, my Satellite M70-337 (18 months) began to refuse to start. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. When that happens, it will be often blue screen, reboot, and then work fine. The BSOD seems to graphics (ialmrnt5) driver-related, so I'm not too concerned about this.
Anyway, more specifically, here's what happens:
I'll turn on the monitor and recharge the battery and the power LED lights up. Then I press the power button and the power led lights up. But the hard drive light does NOT illuminate. The display shows lifeless, and the laptop shows no sign of life other than the three lights. It does not even show the toshiba start screen which normally invites me to press F2 or F12.
I then turn off the laptop by pressing the power button and hold.
I checked the event logs, and it seems that the problem coincides with the date and time being reset to January 1, 2005. So, the problem could be related to a dead CMOS battery? The strange thing is, if I leave the phone off for a week and it will restart with no problem. Yet it can begin to misbehave after be off for 6 hours only. If the CMOS battery need replacement, probably after a week without being able to time could be reset?
And if that's the CMOS battery, why won't the laptop start not at all on a few occasions? I'm confused!
I checked the memory of errors (with MEMTEST) and it is fine. I reinstalled the memory and changed the locations of memory, he is sitting in (while wearing an anti-static bracelet!). No change.
Similarly, I checked the hard drive is in place. Yet once again, it was fine. I scanned using CHKDSK/r, and it turned out to be very good.
Thus, all the advice, please!
I do not know how to start so I will try to explain things step by step.
Regarding the battery CMOS;
If the battery is empty, all the parameters of the BIOS as time, data will be set to the default settings.
But the CMOS battery empty should not has a bad influence on the start-up procedure. Usually, you should get a message to access the BIOS and restore and save the changes. Then the cell phone should start as usual.
If the CMOS battery is empty, you can reload on the laptop for about 12 to 16 hours on the AC adapter / CC.
However, in my opinion the start-up problems have nothing to with the CMOS battery
Regarding the graphics driver ialmrnt5;
I have goggled a bit and discovered that many people receive a BSOD caused by ialmrnt5.dll
This file seems to belong to the Intel graphics driver.
It would be desirable to delete the old driver Intel of the operating system and install version a new driver from the Intel page support.
But to be honest I don't think that a graphic driver could cause this problem!
I had a similar problem with my laptop 6 year old. He froze, and then it was not possible to restart the laptop. I thought it was an overheating issue. I cleaned my cooling module and assigned and new thermal grease for cooling modules and CPU, but it did not help.
I have checked with the Memtest86 memory but found no problem.
Then I removed ONE of the memory modules that have been installed in the laptop and have tested the BONE for an extended period.
Since then I have not received any errors or other trouble...
In my case it was a defective module!
Can I use my EQUIUM M70-337 (standard spec) to watch & record & playback tv.., (prefer TNT connection)
If Yes, what is the best option to connect up to..., reflected on "win tv" stuff does tosh's place, (card or usb or!)
Have XP Home do I need new laptop with MCE
Will be upgraded to 512 of ram? 1 gb.., help
This tosh has 40 GB hd...? or more., as read it on net forums
help appreciated... Thank you
On the satellite M70-337 you will not find any signal in the ports for signal reception.
This laptop supports only a s-video port to a TV connection output. You can use it to display the screen of the laptop on the TV.
So if you want to save and receive TV signals, strings, you must use an external solution as a 3rd party TV card
I was hoping someone could help me, I have the satellite M70-337 and 512 MB ram.
I want to improve this, but when I click options next to my laptop it says my model does not, it means that I'm not able to upgrade my memory?
Thanks for any help.
Check you user manual you should find details on upgrading memory
I'm buying a memory upgrade for my Satellite M70 - 337.
However, I'm not sure how to adapt really.
I unscrewed the memory Panel and watched it not really knowing what to do.
All the tips, links to diagrams would also be very useful.
Thanks for any help.
First before you install or remove a module, turn off the computer with the closure of the option in windows. The laptop should t be in standby or hibernation, because you will lose data.
Some modules of memory can be physically installed but are not entirely compatible with the laptop. In this case the machine will issue a warning as 3 short beeps.
Here's a short instruction end how the modules;
-Turn the laptop (don t forget to unplug all cables) and remove the battery.
-Remove the two screws holding the plug cover memory modules
-Slide your fingernail or a thin object under the lid and remove it
-Mount the fittings of modules in connectors from computer to a 45 degree angle, and press the modules taken care to ensure a good contact.
-Push the module down so it lies flat. Locks on each side will be lick into place to fix the modules.
But note; to do this, carefully and don't use any force!
Some time while I was on the net screen on my Satellite M70 exploded and a color on the screen and I couldn't do anything unless I close the lid of the laptop and the computer will put into hibernation. After doing this the laptop go normally, and after a while he'll be back.
There's something that amazes me that some time, sometimes 3 times a day and some time it doesn't happen in a week.
Please I need your help
This seems very strange and it's amazing that a single software application could have a negative influence on the screen.
It happens only when the laptop connects to the internet?
But of course, maybe the program like MS Messenger has a bad influence on the graphics driver and so this problem appears.
Try to update the graphics driver and check if it helps!
If you use an Intel graphics driver control this site:
I have a Satellite M70-337, the vehicle currently has 40 GB of hard drive. The laptop has served me well and I want to upgrade the hard drive 100 GB +, anyone has done this?
If Yes please advise on the type of hard drive required and their availability. I have 2 GB of RAM and want to run Windows 7 on this computer.
Of course you can upgrade the HARD drive why not? :)
AFAIK Equium M70 already use hard drives with Serial ATA interface. This means that you must buy a 2.5 HARD drive with this interface.
For example, a 120 GB model should work!
In my view, it is irrelevant, what type (manufacturing) that you choose. There is no major differences, but I have good experiences with Western Digital.
The shop told me when I bought it was Bluetooth. Since the purchase, we run everything off wired connections but have recently moved and now have a hub wireless etc, so we thought that we would be formed under Bluetooth printer will be in another room for the laptop. As I am not at all computer I can't understand how to do this. Could I have some advice please. Sorry if this has already been explained on another thread, but as I don't have the slightest idea I can't choose the useful information from other threads!
NB: If I need to buy another piece of equipment could someone please tell me exactly what I need to do and how I adapt it.
Bluetooth is not available for Satellite M70-337. Small Bluetooth label is placed in the lower corner of your laptop?
I want to upgrade my Satellite M70-337 with a 120 GB HARD drive. I have an external USB with a Toshiba MK-1234GAX 120 GB disk drive in it, I could share with my original 40 GB hitachi drive.
Is this compatible with the laptop HARD drive toshiba, if not, what is the specification for the necessary HARD disk?
Thanks for any help!
I think what you need is a HARD drive with the SATA interface. I think that the 40 GB of HARD drive that was installed in your laptop supports a 5400 RPM.
To my knowledge the external USB case supports an IDE hard drives. But you know, it is possible to s that your external HARD drive supports a SATA interface. In any case, you must check it before using this laptop computer HARD drive.
In addition, there is a problem with the size of the HARD drive. It is a 120 GB HARD drive and, possibly, the BIOS does not recognize the HARD drive. I think you can use 40 GB, 60 GB, 80 GB and 100 GB hard drives but I'm not sure about the 120 GB.
But you can test it.
My Satellite M70-337 has a problem. WiFi does not work and I can't install the driver for network controller. I downloaded all the drivers from the Toshiba Web site but it still does not work. If anyone knows what's going on, please let me know.
My email: [email protected] Best Rgs.
Depending on the laptop that you use, you will need to choose the right WLan driver.
Have you downloaded the WLan driver in the computer category laptop good?
It seems that the satellite M70-337 contains the number of PSM77E and that is why you chose this series of mobile in the download form.
Check that you have installed the wireless network card. It is important because the laptop might be bundled with various wireless network cards; for example with Intel or Atheros.
I think that if you chose the right laptop and use the good Wlan card that everything will work out ;)
Hi, can any 1 tell me. is the K000033860 new Toshiba Satellite M70 computer laptop motherboard
the same TOSHIBA EQUIUM M70-173 card MOTHER K0000333860.
where can I get a list of cards that will fit the Equium m70-337.
I think it's the same thing. As far as I know Satellite M70 was offered with two hardware configurations:
-Satellite M70 with PSM70E part number and Intel graphics card
-Satellite M70 with PSM71E part number and ATI graphic chip
Your laptop must be identical to PSM70E so I m 99.9% sure it's the motherboard even if you can use it.
I recently got the * TOSHIBA EQUIUM M70-337 * my brother. I love the laptop but I find it pretty slow and I want to make a change for the processor.
However, I'm not sure what to do, so I would not get the wrong type can give me any help on processors that are compatible as I really need to use the laptop for my AS and A2 level.
I use currently Garni processor which I think is a processor INTEL Mr. He has a clock speed or 1.7 ghz and I would like something along the lines of 2.66 or greater.
I found compatible RAM for stimulating my memory so I just need to know the names of the processors that I can use. Also the price and links to them.
Thanks for your help.
I think that the exchange of CPU or upgrade is not the right solution. I have Satellite M70 and it's absolutely the same notebook as your one and my past fairly quickly.
I do not which OS you use, but the fact is that this laptop is designed for Windows XP Home edition and with good and just configuration of Windows XP Home edition, you'll have well equipped operating system. Upgrade of RAM to the maximum level too and you must be satisfied with the performance of s for laptop.
I really don't think CPU upgrade is needed.
In any case for this platform, I think you can use Intel Pentium M processor 725/730/740/750/760/770/780.
I don't have the time to pick them up for you. Use Google for your country and only search.
Everything you do is at your own risk, and if something goes wrong... you know what I mean.
I have equium m70-337. There are two slots for Ram cards. at the moment I have 512 MB, I want to buy 1 GB.
can I leave the old 512 MB card inside and add 1 GB? It will make 1, 5 GB? or it will work only on 1 GB anyway? and I would like to get rid of 512 MB?
Thanks for help
Of course. You can use the modules of 512 MB and 1024 MB together!
It is possible because the laptop accept memory upgrade up to 2048 MB.
If you do not have to be afraid. It will work but make sure that you use a compatible
I need to replace the hard drive on my laptop. When the news is in place, it will be just a case of running the product recovery disc to get me and run again.
Also, what would be the maximum size drive, it will take, and what kind I need. I guess it is a SATA.
I have the Satellite M70-159. It's the same as your. I can say for sure, you need driver SATA. I tested the 250 GB HARD drive on my laptop and it works perfectly. I'm 99.9% sure that you can use the HARD drive with 250 GB capacity more, but I think that 250 GB is enough.
Replacement is very easy and you can do it in 5 minutes. Simply remove the HARD drive down coverage and you will see how it works.
When the new drive is inside just put original recovery media in the optical disc drive and install WXP.
If you do not, you can install what you want. In case you want to use Microsoft installations CD all the necessary drivers, tools and utilities that you can download at Toshiba page under http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com for assistance
If you have any other questions let us know.
I'VE GOT:(EQUIUM M70-337 ET SEULEMENT 40 GO DISQUE DUR)
I WANT TO DEVELOP IT.
WHAT SHOULD I DO? BUY A NEW HARD DRIVE?
IF SO WHAT ARE THE SETTINGS THAT I SHOULD LOOK FOR?
I NEED AS MUCH INFORMATION AS POSSIBLE! :)
Thank you very much
I agree with you. 40 GB HARD drive is really not enough.
But I have great news :)
You can improve up to 100 GB and possibly HARD drive up to 120 GB!
I think that for the first 100 GB should be enough.
You should look for Serial ATA, 5400 RPM hard drives
