Screen keeps freezing especially when on the internet on the Satellite Pro series

The screen on my laptop keeps freezing, especially when I'm on the internet, no idea why this is and what I can do to stop it.


Do you mean that the screen freezes or the whole operating system?

Have you checked the operating system for some viruses and malware?

Have you tried to recover the operating system with the Toshiba restore CD delivered?
Please check this!

    No, as far as I know it of not possible to use a port on laptops Satellite Pro Replicator.
    All laptops that support the Port Replicator has a port extension at the bottom of the unit.
    To my knowledge, the Satellite Pro series don t have this port.

  • Chicony Webcam is locked by another program on the Satellite Pro series

    The Integrated Chicony webcam on my Satellite Pro displays on my screen and I can adjust the settings, etc., and until yesterday, worked fine with Yahoo and MSN IM.

    However, since yesterday, I get a message saying that it is not connected or it is locked by another program.
    Alone, I can't look my friends webcsm either!

    My OS is Windows Vista Business.

    Any ideas?


    Please post laptop full name!

    With regard to the question of the webcam.
    Well, I found several ad about the same problem with the internal webcam.
    That's why I really recommend looking in this forum to find answers.

    But I give you a hint; the message appears because of the locked webcam service.
    Just try to disable and enable the service that controls the webcam in the msconfig.

    Finally and above all the new installation of the webcam driver and software, you can download from the Toshiba page, could solve this problem!

    Hi again,

    my opinion: it s a proggie that puts the monitors if an external monitor has been fixed. The program may only goes by default to the external monitor (analog) when windows is started.

    Just guessing, but it (hopefully) sounds plausible. ;)

  • I have an IMAc running on the latest version of El Capitan. MY blutooth followed pad has a mind of its own - opening windows and text highlighting / deletion.  In addition to this my screen keeps freezing and the spinning ball will appear.

    I have an IMac running on El Capitan 10.11.6.

    Hello Kluggerjo,

    Thank you for reaching out to the Community Support from Apple. I know how important it must be able to count on your devices work as expected, and I have a few steps that should help resolve the behaviors you see.

    I would recommend to go by resetting your management system (SCM) controller. MSC helps control and regulate different material on your Mac, including Bluetooth systems.  This article will guide you in this process: reset the management system (SCM) controller on your Mac.

    If you still experience the issue after the test, you can test the behavior to a test user. This will help us to determine if the problem is systemic or isolated to your user account. This article will guide you in this process: How to test a question in another account on your Mac user

    If the behavior is duplicated to the test user, I'd recommend reinstalling El Capitan. This will not delete your data. To reinstall using the recovery mode, take a look at this article: How to reinstall OS X

    If you experience any problems or have any questions, please let us know. The entire community is here to help.

  • Satellite A100-225 keeps freezing and crashing with the new HARD drive

    Hi all

    I have a Satellite A100-225 with a 100 GB SATA Hitachi drive I int it that recently started showing bad sectors. Then I bought a Hitachi 320 GB SATA II drive to replace it. I tried the drive and it was recognized right away, so I didn't need to change the SATA speed. I ran the restore a disk installed newest. The problem I have is that the computer keeps freezing and crashing with the new drive. It takes a lot of time to load up when turned on and there is a noticeable to untermittant delay when you drag the cards around solo.

    I tried to run the Hitachi drive test and it comes back fine. I also tried to turn the SATA speed of the drive down from 300 to 150 via the firmware, and although I saw a slight improvement, it is still not right.

    I talked to Hitachi and they say that he could not be 100% compatible, so the problems. Someone at - it else sucessfully set up a replacement for this notebook drive and if so what make and model. Has anyone else had simular problems?

    Thank you

    Years ago, I've updated yet more former Satellite M70 with SATA HDD (270 GB if I m remembering well) and everything was fine.
    In my view upgrade with SATA HDD normal shouldn't be a problem. Do not SATA II because it will not work faster.

    I can't say for sure, but there must be a compatibility problem.

    Let's see if someone else had better luck with the upgrade of the disk on the Satellite A100.

    Have you checked this forum with advanced search option? Maybe you can find some old NET on upgrade the HDD on A100.

  • Re: No Internet on the Satellite Pro C660

    Someone at - he of the drivers from the internet that can run internet on Toshiba Satellite Pro C660? Laptop is preinstalled with Win7 64 bit.

    I put t know what the card is inside the laptop. He formerly Atheros, but now his Realtek, was great work until Windows don't update now no link it just says: limited access, even if there are 5 full bars showing, there is a yellow question mark on it.

    When I run the troubleshooting it indicates a possible driver problem, but if I check the driver it says working properly. I have been using the system restore and disable windows update, but daily updates are coming back and I have no internet again.

    Now the system restore point that I had created that worked went among the dining choices.
    My head is paralyzed.
    Any help greatly appreciated


    Windows updates are listed as important and optional. Under optional drivers are sometimes written drivers for hardware components such as display or WLAN. Please don t install these updates. Install important updates only, and only use the drivers from Toshiba.

    Please send us the name of the full model (C660-xxx) and we can check what cards are on the inside.
    Try it please check the system again restore and turn on show restore points more. I hope that your restore point will be there. Do it, check the functionality and don t install any driver offered by Microsoft Windows update.

  • Help identify the Satellite Pro 2100 download driver

    I have a Satellite Pro (marked below as a PS210E-00C3G-EN and a P4 2000/256/30 G, 15XT, CDW, LW). I think it's a satellite Pro 2100, whatever.

    Problem I have is that when it comes to downloading the drivers, I can't find anything approaching this model of the selection process. I've searched the forums and there's not much on this machine otherwise than in this one, so I was hoping someone could help me identify this machine especially for driver downloads... Yes, guess who has reinstalled Windows XP without checking I had all the specific stuff Toshiba tucked away first?

    For now, I have a load of things works without drivers, and it is not at all optimal...

    Thanks in advance

  • 8 issues of the new owner of the Satellite Pro L300

    Hello to all forum users!

    I bought a new Toshiba, the Satellite Pro L300 laptop and have until January 14 to test - if it looks like it is not working properly I will return it to the store where I bought it.

    Here is a list of questions I have:

    1. whenever I turn on the laptop or it is suspension or hibernation mode, and when I disable it, the cd/dvd drive makes a clumsy mechanical noise.

    It seems to me like the cart that transports the laser and optics is running in a mechanical stop.

    Is this normal?

    2. There is a hot sub-pixel on the screen (in blue) and according to the Toshiba info in the box, this is normal and does not return.

    Should I worry about this?

    3. when I run the test memory at the start of the system, she says she'll start windows automatically at the end of the trial and show me the results of the test.

    It performs the test, Vista boot, but I see no reports of results.

    Where can I find the report?
    Is there a known issue with this test?

    4. the service program Toshiba to perform diagnostics of slot Vista does not work. Whenever I run the test (PCdiag.exe) I get an error message Vista saying a defect was found in the KERNEL32.dll module.

    Where can I get a fix for this?
    I have already installed the updated files on the Toshiba web site for the "Value Pack", which is where this utility, but still not the error message.

    5. I want access the settings of the bios at startup, but have not found a way to do it again.
    F2 gives me a menu for memory test or normal boot system.
    ESC is not me in bios Setup either.
    There is a utility for bios Toshiba that I can run Vista, and I see that any upgrade bios firmware should also be done through Vista.

    Is there a way to access bios at startup?

    6. I would like to run XP on this system and realized that this model (Pro L300 PSLB1E) is compatible XP, and I should be able to download all the drivers from Toshiba to run under XP.

    Does anyone do this?

    7. the laptop and configured Vista Basic when I did the first power on, but the license sticker on the bottom of the laptop has a product key for "Vista OEMAct Business." I was captivated by this laptop as the option to revert to XP Pro with Vista business. The box did not come with any CD or DVD and no manuals explaining how to install Vista Business.

    This is reason enough to return the laptop in the store where I bought it, which is a chore, I prefer to avoid if I can install Vista Business.

    Can someone help me understand what is happening here?

    8. is there a way to contact technical support by e-mail?

    Thanks in advance to anyone who can answer all of these questions!


    Two weeks ago, I worked several days on friends Satellite Pro L300. Your questions are interesting and I will try to provide an answer or comment.

    1 this is normal behavior. I noticed it on other models of computer laptop too. Right now I use Satellite P200D and I noticed the same thing.

    2. of course, you may have noticed a dead on the screen pixel and more on what you can read on

    3. maybe follow links can help a better understanding:

    4. what to say about this? I t has not noticed this error and I can recommend just reinstall full VAP. Remove preinstalled system, restart your computer and install the latest version of the Toshiba download page.

    5. When you start the laptop downstairs you can find info how to enter the BIOS settings. It usually takes F2. I really don't understand what is wrong in your case, but must work F2. Press immediately after turning on your laptop. Press several times. You have to work

    6. If you can find the download page of drivers, tools and utilities on Toshiba Windows XP Home edition, you should be able to install and configure Windows XP Home edition on this model of laptop. For the installation of Windows XP edition family please use Windows XP SP2 home edition.

    7. This must be clarified with your local dealer. The fact is that Toshiba doesn t offer any CD/DVD and recovery DVDs must be created by the owner of the laptop. I presume that you didn t seen or read Toshiba reminder about it. This point explains exactly what needs to be done.
    The recovery media can be created using the preinstalled Toshiba Recovery creator. The shortcut is placed on the desktop.

    8. I'm afraid, you must contact the hotline, but as far as I know Toshiba's toll-free hotline.
    Call and ask if there is something you want to know.

    Good luck!
