View Portege M400 on TV?
I have a portege M400 regular and I want to display on a TV. I bought a simple vga to s-video cable on ebay... What don't get me? The seams of the video card to be able to do this option...
and the clues...
The unit sends the right signal to good port. It is possible that you need very high quality adapter. I didn t try to use this kind of adapters because my laptop has S-Video output port, but the port is not available on your Portege.
Please check also all the settings on your TV. It is also possible that you need to activate the S-video port on the TV.
I received a second hand toshiba portege m400 mail and saw there probably a condensation of water trapped between the external display and touch screen behind her. because the screen in the upper left corner looks whitish. and the sender of the laptop said he wasn't there when he sent it. I have a picture of trapped moisture, for those who want to see it.
so, I opened the screen by unscrewing. and I saw that most of the moisture is stuck between the external screen glas and one other layer behind him, which I guess, is the part of the touch screen. who looks inaccessible. These 2? the layers form the upperpart of the screen.
the lcdscreen with all the electronics in this layer, form the lower part of the screen or if you want, cover. This part is now oke. He also had a condensation of water on it and I was able to gently wipe the little moisture of the lcdscreen without problem. This helped a bit with this problem.
but moisture remains trapped between the part of the touchscreen layer and this layer of glass in the upperpart of the screen/cover.
hoping to evaporate the moisture, I left the enlightened a bit more open for a day, I broke even the upperpart and the lowerpart of the screen. I applied a little of an infrared lamp, a remote backup heat. anything that did not help.
* so, how can I remove the condensation of water? *
* is there a way to remove a layer in the upperpart of the screen to reach the humidity? *
Please don t get me wrong, but I'm afraid, you need professional with this Mr. help as I see that your question is not answered for days now, and I think that nobody here has a lot of experience with this stuff.
View replacement OK but how to remove the condensation of water on the touchscreen is perhaps too heavy for us.
I recommend strongly to contact the nearest Toshiba service provider and ask for help. talking with the guys what we can do about it.
I had this Portege M400 for nearly 2.5 years and never met with such a problem.
When I press the power button / stop * HDD led light turns on, then WiFi and then suddenly the HARD drive off * and the rest in this way: (.) Eventually, the Toshiba logo appears at the same time. I thought that problem disc HARD just to know that after 90 degrees my laptop WHAT HDD led start flashing again. Eventually, Windows loads at startup animation it would 'safe' return to normal position and expected to start Windows.
so, I suppose the problem is somehow related to the accelerometer, is it? I don't get these gels after Windows starts. Currently I have version 3.8 BIOS and installed Windows 7 Pro...
It's really starting to annoy me - people look at me funny, as I switch my cell phone 90 degrees :-)
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance!
Maybe it has something to do with laptops HDD?
Maybe the head of HARD drive cannot be moved correctly and the vertical position allows to get the drive moving head again
Unfortunately, I've never seen such strange behavior for laptop and so I can give you a few personal suggestions.
In my view, that the HARD drive should be checked at the first maybe the problem could be solved in replacement of HARD drive
I have a new problem with Portege M400, which began a few days ago.
If I pick it up or move it, then it will crash or lock up. I wonder if anyone has any idea as to what may be the cause of this and what can be done?
My only guess is to replace the hard drive?
> Turn off accelerometer does not help. Internet research indicates that it is possible a motherboard problem. Replacement motherboard solves problems for about 6 months to a year, then it returns.
I doubt that it could be a motherboard problem, what the gbaniseter say this happens when it pick up or move the m400, then it will crash or lock up.
This seems to be a problem of HARD drive and it s nothing uncommon who, after a long period of use of the disk HARD start HARD drive malfunction is a sensitive device and can die because of the physical restraint
Replace the HARD drive and check if the problem would happen!
I have a portege M400 and im hardly set any operating system of windows on them. When it gets to the stage where he asks what hard drive to put in place the windows files to, it does not detect the drives.
I also have an image on a hard drive that I use a universal driver restore program to restore to any laptop regardless of the make and model and which also blue screens after the logo of windows xp when it starts up. The toshiba is the first laptop that I fell on this issue.
The BIOS is currently 1.8 I think, I can't even put the hard drive in compatibility mode or AHCI.
im a little confused about restrictions of this laptop.
Can someone guide me on what I need to do to install windows on this machine please?
Timox is right: the RAID driver must be added during the installation of Windows XP.
During installation, you will be asked to add 3rd third-party drivers. As I m not wrong not you must press F6 to add the RAID driver.
Very important note: do not format the HARD drive once the RAID driver has been added because this would remove the RAID driver from the HARD drive and installing Windows XP will fail again.
I have a Toshiba Portege M400 PPM40E, I managed to install Windows XP on the computer.
I can't access my cable network.
The wireless works well.
What is the driver.
We're talking about Gigabyte Intel 10/100 network documentation
You can find the LAN driver on Toshiba download page-
Very important is that you are looking for your old model Portege to archive, in order to choose option Archive under product type.
I checked, and version 9.2.24 is available for download.
Can find you it?
I'm trying to restore an old Toshiba Portege M400. I have WIN XP Tablet 2005 installed and which, according to me, are all the drivers. Everything works perfectly except the touch screen.
I've been all over the web, downloaded and installed some drivers WACOM Vigneau suggested in another thread here - still no luck.
Anyone have any ideas or experience on how to solve this problem?
> I would not be able to use my fingernail or or a pencil eraser to type with (I don't have any kind of pen) just to test?
To my knowledge, you have the pen in order to use the touch screen.
As far as I know there are two pens in the portege M400.
The reserve pen located at the bottom of the unit that there should be a slot that the second pen.
Hello, I was wondering where I could find the touch screen for my Portege M400-S5032 pilots.
I looked on the site Toshiba driver but could not find them.
Thanks in advance for your help,
Take a look at the Toshiba driver page we

There you should find the Wacom Dual Touch driver for Windows Vista/XP
I think it's a good thing.
Ive got a Portege M400 who im looking to get a new one, I never had the Tablet XP CD so im trying to install using an XP Pro disk, but whenever I get no hard drive can be detected and I tried another disc of publishing house also.
Ive looked for SCSI / SATA drivers but can only find RAID drivers which are not good for me.
I hope someone can help me
Why these RAID drivers are not good for you? Windows XP requires RAID drivers if your laptop is RAID controller and there is no other choice to install XP from a normal Windows XP disc. Then download the RAID drivers on the official website of Toshiba. Either you create a new installation with the RAID drivers disc using nLite freeware tool or you copy the drivers on an external USB FDD and load them during the installation of XP.
Also check similar topics here in the forum. You will find hundreds of similar topics on SATA and RAID drivers.
Check this box!
Please can someone tell me where to find the latest BIOS for a Toshiba Portege M400. I looked on the Toshiba site, and everything is there for Portege is the M750 and M800.
Thanks in advance,
Have you also checked ARCIVE option?
Hi guys... I am looking for your help.
I downloaded all the new Vista drivers avaiable from Toshiba in support of the new installation of Vista business on my old Portege M400, that came preloaded with a version of XP Tablet and kept their loan on a CD.
I also upgraded the version of the ACPI BIOS to the latest available 3.80.
I insert the first CD of Vista professional and do a boot. (I also have a n upgrade Vista Business CD but I want to do a clean install).
I go past the first steps and choose Install.
I am faced with an error message "no disk has been found. "Click on load a driver to provide a device for installing mass storage.
Looks like Vista is not able to see the IDE drive to the edge and it's a driver problem.
I touched the "Rescan" button available on the windows installation and another message appears: "no device drivers were found. Make sure that the installation media contains the correct driver, and then click OK. »
Currently loaded on the XP: currently loaded poster IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers like Device Manager: "Intel (R) 82801 G (ICH7 Family) Ultra ATA Storage Controllers and primary IDE channel."
Hard drives shown are: Toshiba RAID SCSI Disk Device LD0
Pls tell, what new drivers since available downloads of drivers Vista for my model 400 ML PPM40E, should I choose here for my Vista installation recognizes the disk available?
It is very easy to solve this problem.
If you would look on the page of the European driver Toshiba (Portege M400 section), then you will notice that a RAID driver is available for this model of laptop.
Impossible to install Vista because it cannot find the HARD drive due to lack of RAID driver!
You must install the RAID driver first and then you can proceed with the installation of Vista.
As far as I know the Vista installation accepting the USB flash key you can use this key to include the RAID driver.
Hope I could give some useful advice.
I have a Portege M400 built from a unnatended installation, which accepts all Bluetooth, Screen Rotation, etc. Disk utility HARD drivers but it won't accept and install THE modem drivers. I tried the drivers from the Toshiba tools disk and two drivers XP modem on the Toshiba site.
The modem is installed and works fine when using the product recovery image, but the drivers will not work after the installed unnatended be applied.
The unnatended disc has also included modem drivers, but of course, they do not pick up any.
Is it possible that I can get my Active Modem?
Thank you very much
You said that the modem is working after installation of the recovery CD.
One question; Why you n t want to use the Toshiba Recovery CD?
I am an owner of a Portege M400 (PPM40E) and recently upgraded my Vista operating system. All new drivers work very well except for the * TPM *. Here's what's happening.
There's nothing wrong with the installation of security platform. I can create a disc to ensure personal (PSD), load and unload until the first time I got disabling my computer.
After each attempt to load the PSD is answered by an accident. Two seconds after the sending of password, I get a blue screen that informs me the source of the problem: * PFN_LIST_CORRUPT *, a memory dump file is created and the system restarts.
Anyone facing this problem? Does anyone know how to restore data from a backup manually the PSD created? The Restore dialog box does not accept the * .fsb file.
It would be great if someone could help me with this as I have not 'clear' backup files that I had stored on the DSP.
Thanks in advance,
I googled a little and found details of error PFN_LIST_CORRUPT.
NFP: Page frame number and describes the sharing of individual images of main memory where the driver running or orders of this application.
If an application or driver is beyond this scope, then a BSOD will appear.
Here are a few tips and proposals to solve this problem I found on an external Web page:
-updated the BIOS and set the default settings
-reinstall and update the display driver, audio driver, LAN driver, etc.
-Reinstall the security help,
-update the Windows operating system
In the worst cases, this problem could be caused by a malfunction of the RAM, and in this case, the RAM modules should be replaced.
Sorry, but I didn't find more info on this issue.
Hello, I was hoping that someone could help me. I just bought a Toshiba Portege M400 a guy on eBay. When I received it, all the manuals were in German, but the operating system and the programs were in English when I turned it on. So I decided to test the recovery CD to see if it would work, because I knew that I would probably need it in the near future. However, when I installed the OS was in German, all toshiba programs are in German. I sent the guy I bought it said to contact toshiba and see if they would be able to send me a recovery CD which is in English. I hope someone can help me coz Ive has now been left with a tablet pc that I can't use coz I don't understand German =)
I get the same info from the ASP in my country. You can get the Toshiba Recovery CD in the same language, where the laptop was purchased.
If you want to use another language of the OS, so you need to install the operating system from the original CD of Microsoft and then you can download and install the necessary Toshiba drivers on the site of Toshiba driver.
By the way. Each manual user in all languages, you can also download from the Toshiba site.
How are you?
Please I need recovery CD/DVDs for my Toshiba laptop.

Check out this Web of Toshiba Reocvery online store site:
You may be able to order the Reocvery using this page.
