Which module WLan can I use in Satellite Pro A10 PSA15E


I have a Toshiba Satellite Pro A10 PSA15E-09VYL-en and want to add a module internal wireless - any ideas I need one and where?

Thanks in advance,



I discovered that this WLan module can run on your laptop Satellite Pro A10;
LAN (802 11b Agere) PA3212U-4MPC or PA3273U-2MPC card wireless (802. 11a / b).

The upgrade of WLan is not very sensitive. There are two antenna cables which must be connected to the wireless network card. The white cable be connected to the hand and the black cable to the auxiliary voltage

  • Satellite Pro A10 PSA15E: Encryption WPA WLan is missing

    I reinstall a Satellite Pro A10 PSA15E-018PC-OF.
    The problem I have is to get the WPA available for the wireless network card.
    Do I did wrong.
    Reinstallation of XP SP2 full.
    Installed Toshiba drivers. I used the drivers Intel Pro set.

    There is nothing wrong! WiFi encryption type depends on the WLan card specifications and not the driver WLan.

    If the equipment (WLan card) does not support WPA encryption, then you will be not able to use it! The update of the driver won't help you!

    You need to replace the WLan card with another that supports WPA or you are going to buy additional WLan USB key that supports this encryption too.

  • Satellite Pro A10 PSA15e - no more wireless Chip

    Hi all, I'm new to the forum so please be gentle with me!

    I was recently given a Toshiba Satellite Pro A10 (PSA15e-01PJY-EN), unfortunately I did not to any recovery disks! (if someone could send me a copy of the diskette of recovery for this machine, I'd be over the Moon!)

    However, I recently tried to install windows xp home with the disc and used the key on the bottom of the laptop.
    Installation ran ok, but all of a sudden, he cannot see the port intel LAN.

    I ran the likes of Belarc, Device Manager and AIDA... all of a sudden since formatting, nothing can detect the WiFi chip, is this a problem with the fact that I do not use the recovery discs?

    I've not disabled in the BIOS, nor can I actually see it in the BIOS.

    Someone at - it suggestions?

    Thank you very much


    When you install the operating system using Microsoft facilities CD you naked of OS and you must install drivers for each component material, including the wireless network card.

    All drivers and Toshiba tools that you can download at Toshiba support and download page.

  • Can not start my Satellite Pro A10

    I have a Toshiba laptop Satellite Pro A10. When he tries to start windows, it comes up with the "We apologize for the inconvenience, but windows did not start successfully" etc. I tried all the options for example

    Safe mode
    Safe mode with networking
    Safe mode with command prompt
    Last known good configuration

    None of the options works. All I get is a flow of information about drivers and it then hangs. The last driver in the list is:

    multi (0) disk (0) partition (1) \WINDOWS\System32\Drive rs\Mup.sys

    I can't clear the checkpoint.

    Unfortunately, I can't find the disc that came with the laptop, so I'm well and truly stuck.

    Any suggestions?

    See you soon

    HI Leon,

    It is quite normal that there is a list of drivers displayed when you try to boot into 'safe' mode However, if initialization fails, obviously there is a problem with your operating system and your only options are to try to fix the problem by using the recovery console (you will need to boot from a CD of original Microsoft installation), or you can restore the original Toshiba CD recovery full operating system.
    A third possibility would be to start with a utility such as Norton Ghost or Acronis image backup/restore and restore a backup previously taken by an external device.

    The simplest option is to restore from a backup that is already taken, but if you don't then you would be better restore from the recovery CD Toshiba you can get at any Toshiba authorized Service partner.

    Kind regards

  • Satellite Pro A10 PSA15E: NO sound after installing Win XP

    Hello world

    I had to reinstall Win XP Home - which went well, however - now there is no sound and it says no audio device is installed. I tried to install the audio drivers on the Toshiba CD but they go as far as unpacking but then say "not installed" and Setup stops.

    I went to www. support. Toshiba.com and follow the menu to identify which drivers to download? but there are several possibilities for the
    Model A - 10 and I am not sure I have listed below models have.
    A10-S100, A10-S1001, A10-S127, A10-S128, A10-S129, A10-S1291, A10-S167, A10-S169, A10-S1691, A10 S177, A10-S178.

    I would be grateful for your advice.

    What you mean? On the European driver Toshiba page, you will find only one series Satellite Pro A10.

  • Satellite Pro A10 (PSA15E) - no card after replacing HARD drive wireless network


    just a spare hard drive was fitted by an expert, all drivers and update of the BIOS installed on the site of Toshiba, but my wireless network card does not work.
    When I try to connect via a router it says that the card is disconnected?

    I went into Device Manager and of what follows is listed under devices Details ld:
    PCI\VEN_10B7 & DEV_6001 & SUBSYS_600110B7 & REV_01\5 & 36 D 029F7 & 0058F0

    Can someone please tell me which card is installed and where / how do get me to it.
    I don't understand how it can be unplugged?

    I use a 3com officeconnect wireless 11g PC Card which works fine until the hard drive failed.

    Help, please... I am due to go to the hospital Monday and I wish I could take it with me.

    Thank you


    Sorry if I write this too late. :(

    He's old enough for laptop and I don't know with certainty what is the card inside, but all notebooks with wireless network inside card have a small stick of Wi - Fi at the bottom with number of WLAN card. Using this number in Google, you can identify the card.

    Anyway, there is not a lot of possibilities because on the Toshiba support page there are two WLAN drivers listed for your model of laptop. Try to install both of them. One of them must be good.

    Good luck!

  • Satellite Pro A10 PSA15E: update BIOS to use 160 GB HARD drive


    I recently bought a second had Toshiba A10 Pro model reference PSA15E-03U82-EN. I was not able to upgrade the disk hard the 40gig towards a 160gig that I have, but it seems that I need to have the original BIOS boot disk to do this.

    How do I keep it? Can I download it and create my own?

    Thank you very much

    [email protected]


    If I understand you just upgrade you the BIOS to be able to use the 160 GB HARD drive in your notebook

    Unfortunately, this is not possible. Of course, you can upgrade the BIOS, but this will not help using the 160HDD.
    The BIOS supports a simple limitation of HARD drive and update will not help.

    The laptop supports load 20 GB, 30 GB, 40 GB or 60 GB HARD drive. Maybe you can use also a 80 GB HARD drive but I think that the 160 GB is simply too.

    I hope I could give you clearly

    Best regards

  • Can I use a 12.5 mm HDD satellite Pro A10?

    Hi all just joined forum

    My daughter has a old enough Satellite Pro laptop computer A10m, and it was said that his hard drive is passed, question, I have a spare 20gig 2.5 "IDE / PATA 12.5 mm thickness of hard disk, it will fit. I know normal laptops have a 9.5 mm thick disc, not sure where I got this from, it was just in my trash drawer.

    see you soon



    As far as I know standard 20 GB HARD drive used by Satellite Pro A10 is 9.5 mm but I think you can also use 12.5 mm.
    Test it.

  • Satellite Pro A10 - Wifi problem with router ZyXEL


    I recently acquired a Satellite Pro A10 (PSA15E - 0115Q - EN) off the coast of the friend. It doesn't have a wireless card installed, but I managed to take of a Lucent MPC13A-20 that was installed without any problem, and it is recognized as a Toshiba Wireless LAN Mini PCI Card. However, despite the computer being able to read my neighbors wifi (next door and in the apartment on the floor), he refuses to acknowledge my router, even if I'm in the same room. My router is a ZyXEL P-660HW-T1 v2 which works very well (I tested it with another laptop).

    Can someone please help!

    Thanks in advance,


    Make sure your router is using a WiFi standard that supports your card. If you use 802.11n you should drop down to 802.11 g for the tests.

    In addition, you should check the channel of your wireless network card. It should be the same as the router.

    Good bye

  • Satellite Pro A10 - but cannot work on what model it is?

    Hi, I am a beginner, but hey!

    I have an old, very old, but perfectly functional Toshiba Satellite Pro. It was purchased in October 2003. On the underside, he says it is a "Satellite Pro A10", but we can also read on the part number that reads 'PSA15E-02VPC-EN.

    What is an A10 or A15. As ever, it's what model is it, when I visit the download page online for pilots, there re a number of different models, I can't work on which it is my pc?

    There are eleven models A10 A10-S100 to A10-S178 and eight models A15-A15-S127 to A15-S1692.

    So this could be one of the 19 models? Any help much appreciated.

    P.S. I have formatted the hard drive, installed a clean copy of Windows XP, so now I need drivers.


    According to your post, you have a series of Satellite Pro A10 PSA15E

    The drivers are located on the page of the European driver Toshiba;

    But the laptop is old, then you must check the box Archive to get the drivers for this series. In product type choose Archive simple and then point to Satellite Pro A10 PSA15E ;)

  • Satellite Pro A10 comes with: error IDE #0, PXE-E61media test failed

    I recently bought a used Toshiba Satellite pro A10.
    When I received it, it was working and being a noob I tried to install a network card and create a wireless network with my desktop using XP when it did not work I plugged my ethernet (from my desktop) cable on the laptop and flashed upwards with a small number can not? dll etc etc.

    Now I unplugged the ethernet cable and when I try to boot my laptop it comes up with:

    "ERROR IDE #0".
    Intel (r) bootagent, FE v4.1.09
    Copyright 1997-2002 Intel Corp.
    PXE - E61: Media test failed, check that the cables
    PXE - M0F: Exit Intel Boot Agent
    Insert system disk in drive
    Press any key ".

    HI Tom,

    The error message that you receive indicate that your laptop is trying to start the connection to the LAN rather than from his own hard drive or a CD-ROM. I suggest that you verify that the boot sequence is specified correctly in your BIOS, or alternatively, you can press F12 during your market and you should get the boot device menu sequence appears so that you can specify that you want to boot from your hard drive.

    Kind regards

  • Satellite Pro A10 stops on specific opportunities


    I am owner of a satellite Pro A10 (PSA15E). It's hard drive stop working, the pc could not find. So I bought a new, a samsung with 160 GB, IDE, of course.

    Now when I was installing windows, in the part file copy, it just stopped. When I boot it says initialization file fails, then I guess it stops when it was to transfer this important part.

    If I run the cd again, it does not format or reinstall/repair request, it loads only some files and try to start windows and then stops.

    Now, this is where the tricky part comes in: the power led in turn, then again very fast when it stops. I do not use the battery (it is already dead too), and I use an universal AC, a give, 70W adapter. I tried formatting via a LiveCD Ubuntu, with no luck, because when I choose "Try Ubuntu" or "Install Ubuntu" it stops a little as he thought, and then when he is about to leave the menu and do something, it stops in place.

    My only guess, is that this laptop doesn't want me more :(

    I could really use some help, I just spent some 50 on a HARD drive for him and he is the only laptop that I have. I don't think that it is a question of temperature because it stops just at specific times, on some specific choices. If I just let it hang there in the menu (the Ubuntu live CD one) it is not closed. Only when I want him to go further.

    Any help/response is greatly appreciated, and if I take a little too much time to respond is because I don't have access to internet at work now.

    Thank you very much

    Theoretically, this could be an overheating problem as Akuma wrote. Therefore, you must clean your laptop using a jet of compressed air. This could blow the dust from the cooling fans and can improve the cooling of the laptop.

    In addition, it would be interesting to know what happens if you run Toshiba Recovery disk recovery facility this work?

  • Satellite Pro A10 - how to restore power management

    I'm running a little used by Satellite Pro A10 as a substitute for a sick office and trying to improve performance after the installation of some essential software.
    It seems you accidentally disable the Toshiba power management function - when I click the icon on the Toshiba Console there is no response.

    Power management seems to retain its previous setting, however, and I find myself with no control otherwise.

    Any advice on how to restore this function on the Console?

    You can also try to use the system restore utility to set the operating system to the point of time at the beginning!
    Maybe it will work

  • Satellite Pro A10 - SP2 or 3 slows the performance of XP?


    I have a Satellite Pro A10 PSA15E that, over the years, had become very slow.

    Recently, I upgraded it's RAM from 256 to the maximum of 1 GB to try to speed things up, but it did not help.

    Then I reformatted the hard drive and reloaded the system using the Toshiba recovery disks. It worked well and the system performance has been excellent. However, with online safety in mind, I loaded the Windows SP2 (to go then to SP3) and it took the system back to where I started - very, very slow, in fact pretty much unusable.

    Does anyone know if Toshiba compatible SP2 and SP3 on this laptop model?

    If yes how install them without killing performance?

    Thanks in advance.


    According to me, SP2 or SP3 is supported on this Toshiba laptop because two Service Packs are contains important security updates and I think that's not the problem.

    If you install SP2 or SP3 you also get the center of security and better Windows Firewall. Maybe you should disable these two services given that the slowdown in the performance of the system (I always disable the two services).
    Just go to start-run-services.msc online online and disable both services and set the startup type to disabled.

    Good bye

  • Help wireless with a necessary Satellite Pro A10

    Hello I just bought a Toshiba Satellite pro A10 psa15e-03u82-en of second hand and I'm having trouble with the wireless option. This computer is equipped with a built-in wireless card?
    The light on the switch doesn't switch on when on is selected and there is no wireless option in Device Manager.
    But if you go to the support page for driver download at the web site of Toshiba drivers for wireless utilities!
    Is the map or can it be mounted under a removable hatch on the base of the laptop?
    Any help will be greatly appreciated a lot


    the problem is that wireless is delivered optionally with this machine. This means that the machine does MUST NOT have wireless but can be equipped or bought with the wireless option added.

    You can only do the following: you can get a mini-pci wireless card (I suggest atheros, gently work cards in almost all machines) or you take the PCMCIA wireless card, so Don t you have nothing to install ON your machine.

    In the case of a mini-pci card, you can improve your machine by removing a cover on the bottom (should be more on the front of the machine) and then put the card carefully into the slot. And CAREFULLY stick antenna that plugs into the connectors on the Board. They cable cannot be repaired if you damage one of them.

    It would be better to look for a technician and allow it to install the card. I think it should be much safer. ;)
