It is not possible to upgrade GPU on mobile phones. More info on what you can read on http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/kb0/TSB9401AX0001R01.htm

These updates is not certainly supported and these hardware upgrades will remove warranty valid.

  • Upgrading RAM on Satellite L50-B-1DZ - need advice


    I want to improve my new laptop to use 8 GB to 4 GB. The site of the main product specification provides all the information, I need to know if I should order DIMM or SODIMM memory modules?

    Also, is it possible for a client to easily make this themselvess by removing the panels without having to take the thing completely detached?


    standard: 4 096 (1 x) MB, RAM DDR3L (1 333 MHz)
    maximum extension: 8 192 MB
    technology: DDR3L (1 333 MHz) RAM

    Appropriate advice or technical manual covering this would be great.

    Well, the procedure for the RAM upgrade is a bit tricky. There is no RAM module Bay separated with easy access.

    To access the free RAM slot, the plastic cover of the bottom must be removed.
    You need to remove the ODD (optical disc) as well as the battery and next by the screws around the cover.

    But remove the cover would mean that you would negate the warranty.

    I put t know if you want to lose the warranty, I think that security is a very important fact which should be considered before performing this upgrade procedure.

  • Satellite L50-B-1EF - need driver wireless

    I have a Toshiba laptop model L50-B-1EF and I can't find the wireless driver anywere,
    If someone could help me I would be grateful.

    Thank you in advance.

    I put t know what system you are currently using but the Win 7 32 bit / 64 bit and 8.1 Win drivers are available on the Toshiba UE driver page:

    The key is to choose the right WLan driver because this series was equipped with three different wireless network cards: Intel / Atheros or Broadcom.

    I think that the bloc supports Atheros WLan module but don't be worried if driver Atheros would not work. In this case, you should simply try the Broadcom or Intel driver

  • How to switch between Intel and ATI GPU on Satellite L50 - B


    I bought a L50 - B - 1LR PSKTAE Satellite.
    Is there a graphics card Intel on the motherboard, but also a second for better 3D AMD Radeon.
    Now, I plugged on a second screen on the HDMI output, but still using the Intel graphics card.
    How can I change this?

    I made a button in the radeon software which says that when I start the sketchup program that he would take the graphics card from AMD. But it's still the Intel graphics adapter.

  • Upgrade GPU on Satellite P200-13N

    Hello everyone

    I just got a caled "new" machine Toshiba Satellite P200 13-N with the following specifications:

    Windows Vista Edition home premium
    2 GB Ram 667 MHZ
    Processor Intel core 2 duo 1.73 ghz
    NVIDIA Geforce 7600 go with 578 MB of ram

    Now I just read the info that he comes out of the new nvidia Geforce 8700 GT graphics card. Can I put my card graphic to the GPU or not because it's a PciE card

    Thanks for any advice :)

    No, certainly not possible. The graphics chip is more often soldered to the motherboard and it of not possible to delete or replace it!
    Especially the whole motherboard must be replaced!

    You should know that the CPU or GPU upgrades or replacements are virtually impossible on laptops!
    Therefore, I use my desktop PC for games because it is very easy to upgrade the hardware. And I only use my laptop for my work!

  • Upgrade SSD in Satellite L50 - has

    IM intend to put an SSD in my L50 - A - 1 7 but I don't know if my laptop supports SATAIII.

    IM also not to use my ODD will be a work of caddy hard drive to put my hard drive in there to store data?

    Unfortunately I can't offer you a precise answer to your question on SATA but any standard SATA laptop is such upgrade increase you mobile computer s performance quickly.

    Fact is that SSDS offer substantial benefits over traditional hard drives. It is interesting to note that SATA II SSD will still be faster than virtually any rotation HDD

    To find out what standard SATA laptop I recommend to install one of the two hardware diagnostic tools that are:
    -Everest Home Edition
    -Sisoft Sandra.

    Problem is that your laptop does not have coverage of HARD drive in the lower corner so these updates must be performed by the authorized service provider.

    As far as I know that Toshiba does not HDD caddy so you can try to use some third party caddy but if it will not work correctly is another issue.

  • Upgrade processor for Satellite L50-A-138

    What are the processors spend at L50-A-138?

    Can I put Intel i7-2820QM?

    Update CPU or Exchange is not supported so, in my opinion, you should not think about it.
    More info on what you can read on - http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/kb0/TSB9401AX0001R01.htm

    Since my upgrade of the CPU experience (I ve tested on older models) will not offer a spurt of fast execution. If you want more performance without risk to upgrade your 4 GB maximum RAM 8 GB support and exchange standard fast SSD HARD drive.
    Believe me you will see the difference.

    One last thing. I don't know how old is your laptop, but this action will void the warranty.

  • Satellite L50 - A - 16 Q - problems after upgrade to 8.1 windows

    Hi all

    I have a problem with my Toshiba Satellite L50 - A - 16 Q.

    I decided to update my laptop to Windows 8.1 Win8, unfortunately, it was really bad decision.
    After that my computer is very slow. It takes forever to push the power button to be ready to use browser. Even Chrome does not work correctly. Before the update, my computer was big, fast and stable.

    Is there anyone who had simillar problem? Is it possible to go back to Windows 8 without destroying my C: drive?
    Maybe I should install something more?
    All drivers or another update?

    I just install Win 8.1 update and nvidia drivers graphics.


    To be honest, I put t understand the decision to return to Win 8.
    Win 8 contained many bugs that have been fixed with Win 8.1

    Two days ago, I upgraded my new Satellite M50 - A Win Win 8 to 8.1.
    It took some time but finally win 8.1 run on my laptop and its great!

    First of all, you must update the 8 8.1 Win win recommendation of Toshiba:
    All Toshiba drivers, utility tools must be updated!

    With regard to the starting time:
    You know the hybrid mode? Default (Win 8) did not stop you probably know other systems like Win 7 offshore. The 8 winning performed the closed hybrid that allows you to boot up the laptop faster. But this has been closed not real mode.

    Here is a good description how toggle this mode:

  • Satellite L50 - B - 2 5 - upgrade of guaranteed RAM VS


    I have a laptop Satellite L50 - B - 2 5 and Im wondering if I lose the warranty if I upgrade the RAM from 4 GB to 8 GB. I have a 4 GB RAM module and I want to insert myself, but I am afraid of losing the warranty if I open the case.

    Thanks for your help.

    Way General upgrade RAM will not void the warranty but your L50 - B has a specific design and it is not distinct from the cover of RAM in the lower corner. So you do not have access to the RAM slots. In your case the whole bottom cover must be removed, and you should not do this.

    My advice to you is to contact the nearest Toshiba service provider and ask for help.
