Vista on Portege M200 - some problems with nVidia display driver


I recently decided to update and perform a clean installation of Windows Vista on my Portege M200, now that Toshiba have released official drivers for this machine.

Everything works fine, EXCEPT the nVidia display driver. I have the following questions with the driver Toshiba provides for this machine (97.52 version):

(1) when the screen turns off to save power, the backlight does NOT turn off. Screen turns off but the backlight will stay lit.
(2) for the recovery of the standby mode, the backlight is OFF. You must use the shortcuts Fn-F6/F7 to change the backlight level manually, that will bring him back.
(3) external monitor does not work (with command Fn + F5 or nVidia control panel). External display is always blank.
(3) video playback in WMP is very chopped (a secondary concern for me).

Is there a chance that Toshiba could finally get a updated driver that would set out the? That would really make this machine fully functional in Vista.

Thanks in advance for any help or information.

Null value



> Are there opportunities that Toshiba could finally get out an updated driver?
I noticed that from time to time new updates of pilot (any series of notebook) are released on the European driver Toshiba page and, therefore, I m optimistic that new updates are available

But note; usually, various problems can be resolved by installing some patches MS Vista and missing patches.
Then visit this [MS update website |] and check if all the patches are installed.

Best regards

    Try to update your display manually driver and do not use the analysis of the drivers on the manufacturer's website either.

    This is my generic how updates of appropriate driver:

    This utility, it is easy see which versions are loaded:

    -Free - DriverView utility displays the list of all device drivers currently loaded on your system. For
    each driver in the list, additional useful information is displayed: load address of the driver, description,.
    version, product name, company that created the driver and more.

    For drivers, visit manufacturer of emergency system and of the manufacturer of the device that are the most common.
    Control Panel - Device Manager - Display Adapter - note the brand and complete model of your
    video card - double - tab of the driver - write version information. Now click on UPdate Driver (this
    cannot do anything as MS is far behind the certification of drivers) - then do a right click - Uninstall - REBOOT
    This will refresh the driver stack.

    Repeat this for network - card (NIC), Wifi network, sound, mouse, and keyboard if 3rd party with their
    own the software and drivers and all other main drivers that you have.

    Now go to the site of the manufacturer of system (Dell, HP, Toshiba as examples) (restoration) and then of the manufacturer of the device
    (Realtek, Intel, Nvidia, ATI, for example) and get their latest versions. (Look for the BIOS, Chipset and software)
    updates on the site of the manufacturer of the system here.)

    Download - SAVE - go to where you put them - right click - RUN AD ADMIN - REBOOT after each installation.

    Always check in the Device Manager - tab drivers version you install actually shows up. This
    because some restore drivers before the most recent is installed (particularly that audio drivers) so install a
    pilot - reboot - check that it is installed and repeat if necessary.

    Repeat to the manufacturers - BTW on device at the DO NOT RUN THEIR SCANNER - manually check by model.

    Look at the sites of the manufacturer for drivers - and the manufacturer of the device manually.

    How to install a device driver in Vista Device Manager

    If you update the drivers manually, then it's a good idea to disable the facilities of driver in the Windows updates,
    This leaves ONE of Windows updates, but it will not install the drivers who are generally older and cause
    questions. If updates offers a new driver and then hide it (right click on it) and then go look for new ones
    manually if you wish.

    Also other programs are affected.  I suspect a recent download of Adobe.  Can anyone HELP.

    No, it has nothing to do with updates of Adobe. There is a problem with your video card driver.

    Go directly to the Web site of the manufacturer of the GPU for updates (not Microsoft, not a System Builder).

  • Blue screen on startup... problem with the display driver?

    I have been using a Dell Inspiron 14R (N4110) laptop computer since 2010 without any problem.

    The laptop was purchased online from Dell and came with

    (1) Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit and

    2) AMD Radeon HD 6470 M - 1 GB display card.

    Recently, I had a problem where my laptop just wouldn't start, showing the blue screen every time it tries to start. The blue screen mentions a problem with the file atikmpag.sys I understand is the driver for the AMD video card.

    If I delete/rename the files atikmpag.sys and atikmdag.sys (via secure boot mode) in C:/windows/system32/drivers, the laptop (not) start, but obviously does not recognize the graphics card.

    After a lot of unsuccessful trials debugging on mine (including trying to upgrade the drivers to display etc.)., I reinstalled the operating system and the drivers provided with the original kit (just to eliminate any possibility of an upgrade that went wrong). However, I still see the issue.

    That means there is a hardware problem? or a BIOS problem?

    Thank you


    Guys, the problem you describe is actually a hardware failure. There is nothing you can do except replace a motherboard for laptop, or taken some advanced technicians, COMPUTING which will replace or chip GPU reball.

    I have the same a laptop similar (Inspiron N5110), with the same problems and these problems - all started yesterday. Do not waste your time, just reinstall OS, then install display drivers, which are available on the official site of Support of DELL and after that - if it's not working, just do what I said.

    Generally these are consequences of an overheating laptop, but that it was certainly not my case (I did regular checks), I could even bet on chips quality GPU, which has been used in the manufacture of this model of laptop... again...

    UPDATE: Okay, last night was a long night for me and I can confirm finally - who's * chip AMD, which causes the blue screen, you mentioned. I disassembled my N5110 faulty, armed with a heatgun, Probe temperature (probe) and tons of aluminium + some flow of brazing, I made a fairly quick reflow and the result is just what I expected - everything works perfectly again, with the same configuration - even with the same installation of Windows, which has been to launch these blue screens. There are now no blue screen at all and portable computer performance as new.

    Apparently bad welding, when this laptop was manufactured, is the exact reason why we are where we are. The BGA chip was not dead at all (it was just poorly soldered). The same story, including HP and a bunch of other companies had some time ago with these NVIDIA chips (I know, some of you know what I'm talking about).

    CONCLUSION: Integrated DELL diagnostic software is useless against the detection of defects with a discreet graphics AMD card. Problem was not in the software or drivers - it was just a poorly welded chip (I regularly cleaned my laptop dust, so overheating is not an option here).

  • problem with the display driver

    I am running windows 7 final flashes the screen becomes black and turns on with a message at the bottom right indicating that the display driver failed but has recovered successfully, but he says it's the graphics driver for windows vista how to fix this? also when going through we found that the driver for the wifi card driver is not fully installed as well as a few other drivers, is it possible to install these drivers in working condition?

    Moved Windows 7 installation, set at level and activate Forum.


    You get the right drivers is the pre-installed operating system, the hardware if manufacturer or by the manufacturer of your computer/laptop if you yourself the computer built or changed the graphics card, etc.

    You go to computer/laptop or the Web site of the manufacturer 3rd party material > look for a Support/Drivers Download section > put in your computer or hardware part model number, depending on whether it's the computer or the hardware manufacturer's Web site > search your operating system > then find Windows 7 drivers (Audio, graphic, network adapter, drivers etc.) > download and install.

    You don't say what version of 'bit' of Windows 7 you have 32-bit or 64-bit.

    Choose the correct version of 'bit' for these drivers.

    See you soon.

    It's your graphics card that is supported but always your graphics card drivers may be outdated and that could be the cause of this error message.

    You should be able to download the latest drivers from site Web of Intels graphics card.

  • Satellite Pro A100-080: NVidia display driver's break in 3D games


    I have some problems with the display driver since I bought the laptop 9 months ago. I tried to install each new driver published on the toshiba site but no driver is running stable on my system.

    The problem is that my laptop crashes with blue screen when playing 3d games and my windows vista tells me that it is the display driver causing accidents.

    I had the previous version of the driver installed several months ago and I think it's more stable than the current version. Unfortunately I lost the files for that one, but I prefer a functional driver for this laptop.

I can activate only in the start menu and then the botton in the keyboard touch would become green.

    At the top of the touchpad (mouse), there is a botton that enable / disable the touchpad. It works again.

    A few times when I'm working, the screen turns black and then after 5-7 seconds, that it becomes normal with a message that nvidia GeForce GT 330Μ had stop working but now works well! (is it something serious?)

    On the taskbar, there is an icon with a yellow exclamation point indicating the function that intel RST does not work. What is c?

    Keep in mind I have install all the drivers to the latest version, but nothing has changed! I have windows 7 64 bit GR
