What master/slave settings the Satellite M45-S331 PSM40U supports


I need some info if this isn't a problem. My optical drive on Satellite M45-S331 (PSM40U-01R001) died on me.
So I need to replace.

I bought a NEC slim model, but it seems that it's not compatible. He worked as a SLAVE and in PIO4 mode I think.

I contacted the store where I bought it, and they said they need some information abaut what type of optical drive DVD - RW is going in there, so her can replace that NEC with appropriate injector.

They said that they need some settings MASTER/SLAVE of abaut info optical drive that goes into M45

Thank you



Generally, the drive must be connected to channel 1 as a master drive. You can imagine as follows:

Channel 0 (primary)-> Master-> HARD drive
Channel 0 (primary)-> slave-> HDD or none

Channel 1 (secondary)-> Master-> CD/DVD drive
Channel 1 (secondary)-> slave-> none

Hope I could help you :)

  • Express Media Player starts automatically when the Satellite M45 is disabled

    After two years of trouble without using my Satellite M45 from acting weird.

    Occasionally, when it is turned off or in hibernation the Express Media Player will begin; This can occur immediately after hibernation or in the middle of the night even if it is passed by closing down.

    No disc is in the drive and it's right there waiting for a disc to be inserted. It may not even start with the Detective Conan.

    Sometimes, often, and I have to unplug the power and remove the battery in order to get some sleep. Is there a simple solution or there at - there a way to uninstall the Express Media Player?


    Throughout history, there is a confusing thing. Express Media Player starts when the OS is shutdown properly. This means that the Express media player cannot start after the hibernation mode. This player is not part of the operating system and runs separately.

    Because of this, it will be interesting to know which application starts. East - Media Express Player or Windows Media Player?

    In any case, I believe that each of them can be started after pressing media placed next to the switch buttons. There may be a problem with it.

  • What Watts value using the Satellite A100-771?


    I have a Satellite A100-771. Does anyone know how many watts the TI needs?
    In my car, I have a 200 Watt 12 volt DC to inverter, but his does not.
    Is it possible that the laptop needs more than 200 watts?

    Thanks for your help!


    As far as I know the satellite A100-771 uses an AC adapter reference number: E/PA2521U-2ACA 15V 6a 90W.
    In addition, you can use these adapters:
    AC adapter PA2521U-3ACA (2pin 90W/15V) and PA2521E-2AC3 (90W/15V 3-pin)

    I put t found any information on the car adapter, but I think you might be able to buy from any distributor of mobile or you can order from the Toshiba authorized service partner in your country.
    I think that guys will order the part directly from the warehouse of Toshiba.

  • Re: What battery delivered with the Satellite P300 series

    Does anyone know what battery the P300 comes with standard because it has only a 2.6 hours of battery life?
    The battery provided in the list of accessories is a 9 cells 6000mAH one and I need to know if it's a higher capacity or the same.

    What P300-xxx you have exactly?

    > he's only a 2.6 hours of battery life
    I apologize for this comment, but 2.6hours are in short for you?
    My little u400 runs only 2 hours on battery only using IE just for surfing the internet.

    However, battery working time depends on the use of the laptop.
    You can extend the battery working time decreases the brightness of the display and the deactivation of some other devices such as HARD drive or cooling modules.

    These settings can be made in Vista power settings.

  • Toll-free indicated what power disconnected from the Satellite L30-134

    I don't know it this the appropriate category, because I'm not sure of the source of the problem.

    Okay, here it is:
    I have Toshiba Satellite L30-134.

    Normally, when I unplug the cable of the AC adapter, 2 things happen:
    1 ATP icon shows that the current generator is the battery, and it shows invoiced % and about working time remaining before the battery is empty.

    2. the power management becomes more energy saving settings, and implementation Hibernate just until the battery is completely down.

    Well... Last few days things have changed:

    Now, when I unplug the power cable, the system does not recognize this and she continues to display: ' course Power Source: AC Power ', for the remaining capacity of the displays: "S/o" and the system is not hibernate, because he does not feel the difference.
    I'm not sure that this has something in common, buy, I found that the UPS SERVICE has been stopped, I tried to start it manually, but there is ERROR 2481: the UPS service is not configured correctly.
    Need help, please :-)

    This process is correct. After disconnecting the AC adapter the laptop switches to the battery power and uses the Toshiba power saver mode the power created for the use of the battery.

    > Now, when I unplug the power cable, the system does not recognize this and she continues to display: ' course Power Source: AC Power ', for the remaining capacity of the displays: "S/o" and the system is not hibernate, because he does not feel the difference.

    Well the ups (uninterruptible power supply) service could be responsible for this problem!
    If you are not able to start it manually, then it might be a problem with OS software.

    I am frustrated, can someone give me a procedure to make things work again.

    Thank you!


    This device seems to be a mobile American that was designed for an American market. So I think you should download the drivers from the Toshiba site us.

    Well, in addition, if you install the Toshiba drivers manually, so it is very important that you do this in the correct order.
    1 chipset utility at the beginning
    2. common modules (if available)
    3 driver graphic card
    4 etc.

    But why don't you use the Toshiba Recovery CD?
    All drivers are pre-installed on this CD and it works correctly.

  • What device drivers OR are required to use the configurator with CompactRIO Profibus Master-Slave device?

    I'm trying to deploy the software driver for a portable production that will allow technicians to download configurations of profibus for CompactRIO profibus DP master-slave cards.  I know I need support VISA and MAX in order to communicate with the device when it is in Slot 1.

    I have a Windows XP computer I've used in the past for this and a 7 32-bit Windows development machine that can do as well.  I guess I would need OR-Rio installed and more MAX and VISA, but I run in RIO the right software to install on this machine.  Until I dig a hole more far than necessary can someone point me in the right direction of what is needed to install?

    My development platform is LabVIEW 2010 with SP1.  The development and the production laptop computer work all the two 32-bit Windows 7.  The development machine has the following (and other) software:

    LabVIEW 2010 (RT, FPGA modules) SP1

    MAX 5.3.3

    NI-VISA 5.2

    NOR-RIO 3.6

    We use Comsoft Configurator II 1.2.37

    All reviews are much appreciated!


    I understand the suggestion about Profibus shake appeal reviewer, but I never mentioned the module Profibus - only the NI Compact RIO driver software.


    I checked that the key and it is present and correct.  Later during some additional tests, I'm done with several other installers throw similar messages.  I've seen CVIRTEDIR and MAXAFWDIR as well.

    I thought at this stage there was another really obscure registry entry who standing things upwards, so I tried to install it (s) even on another unit of the same configuration management.  Installed LabVIEW Runtime Engine 2010 SP1f5, NI-VISA 5.2 (included OR MAX 5.3) and NOR-RIO 3.6.1 and everything works well for use with Configurator II Version 1.2 (September 2011 version 1.09 interface Comsoft TCP sockets, includes LabVIEW 8.6 run time engine).

  • To the Satellite 2450-101 DVD drive failure

    Hi guys again...

    It is curious that the drive is still listed in device as Manager works correctly.
    Would have to be a complete reinstallation to get it back again when the process would start over.

    Now during the boot process, a message appears at the top of the screen saying "error Eide...
    I bought a new replacement brown-box DVD - RW double layer drive PC World - a Sony IA2604H - and has installed but it's exactly the same thing but this time she is mentioned in as a 'CD-rom SCSI device' Device Manager... which is certainly not.
    In both cases, readers are completely dead and does not eject even trays.
    Needless to say, it's driving me crazy.

    Can you suggest anything?
    Thank you once again...

    You can boot from the bootable CD?

    If so, then try to remove the upperfilters and lowerfilters:

    If you cannot start from the CD, then either:

    (1) the ODD or another component of the motherboard connector is defective / in bulk.
    (2) the original Teac ODD is defective, and the new Sony is not compatible (has the wrong master/slave settings)

  • Satellite M45-S359 turns off suddenly


    Now I have the Satellite M45-S359 3 years. This week, it began to turn off all at once, without even stopping or in hibernation.
    I noticed it get very hot, but I can hear the fan operation.

    Can anyone help? Thank you

    Your description leads to the suggestion that it is an overheating problem simply.
    Computers laptop Toshiba supports protection against overheating. This feature is very useful because it prevents the equipment from damage!

    If the temperature rises to a critical level, the laptop stops automatically.

    Now, you ask why the temperature is too high? Well, this could happen if the internal cooling module is not working properly because of the dust and debris inside the laptop.

    Generally, it should be possible to clean the fans using a special compressed air jet that can be bought from most of the computer and the laptop dealers.

    If this does not help, I would recommend contact the laptop to a professional cleaning technician.

    Best regards

  • Unable to set DF Profi II as a master - slave Auto SUR?


    I am trying to configure a Profi II PCI DF as a master device. I'm unable to do as it appears that it may be on automatic mode Slave.

    When I try to use the Comsoft Configurator II to download the master-slave on the PCI card, I get this error:

    I then tried to use a .vi (DFP2_Initialistion.vi) file to set the PCI as the master.

    Configure it as slave works very well, as shown here:

    However, when I use the same file to set the PCI to a master, I get this error (error 18: there is no such thing as LabView - Pen):

    I guess mistakes Comsoft Configurator II and LabView are linked and could be due to the Auto-esclave being enabled on the PCI mode. I can't find anything which touches on the way of AutoSlave in the documentation, does anyone have information on how to solve this problem?

    Thank you.

  • Master/slave event Structure vs. State Machine


    First some background to the question (skip this paragraph if you are simply interested in the question). I'm relatively new to Labview, after only a few months of coding with Labview and LabVIEW Core 1. Being one of the only people in the company who now knows Labview I have been challenged with the creation of a relatively complex application that will perform a selected ten or to view different tests with customizable options, display, analyze and deliver and automate reports.

    For the application I am writing I need a GUI with several screens (I achieve with tabs), initially I tried this code with the structures of the event within a machine to States (but as you probably know this was fundamentally flawed, that you can't put structures of the event within the structures of the case) (, or structures of the event), but from here, I spent several hours of searching the best alternatives.

    So my Question is: would recommend to use a master-slave (with the structure of the event and the State of computer, respectively), or simply use to continually voting machine status?

    (Keep in mind I'm going to use this as part of a larger facility of producer/consumer.)

    Thanks in advance,

    Joshua Walker.

    I use a case in my state machine specifically for checking to GUI events.  It is usually a "Idle" State or a specific State to 'check events.  I can also set the time-out programmatically by using a register shift, just in case I need to do a quick check (some small timeout) or wait for a user to press a button (timeout is - 1).

    Hi Hammyobob,

    Looks like the infection by the virus has taken its toll. The following suggestion may help you recover Aero on the computer.

    Important: This section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems can occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you proceed with caution. For added protection, back up the registry before you edit it. Then you can restore the registry if a problem occurs. For more information about how to back up and restore the registry, click the following windows Help article.

    Back up the registry


    Steps to follow:

    a. go to start and type regedit.exe.

    b. navigate to the registry key next:


    c. If the DWM registry key is not found, right click on Windows, and then select New -> key to create the new branch and name it as DWM.

    d. in the details pane on the right, create a new DWORD (32-bit value) named UseMachineCheck, and set its value to 0.

    e. in the details pane on the right, create a new DWORD (32-bit) value namedblur, and set its value to 0.

    f. in the details pane on the right, create a new DWORD (32-bit) value namedAnimations, and set its value to 0.

    g. restart the Desktop Window Manager Session Manager in Services in Control Panel (type Services.msc in start search), or run the following commands in an command with administrator privileges prompt:

    net stop uxsms
    net start uxsms

    h. try to enable and apply Windows Aero in Windows 7. Restart the computer if necessary.

    This should be it.
