White screen to update the Portege M400 firmware after waking from sleep state

Why this topic has been closed? http://forums.computers.Toshiba-Europe.com/forums/thread.jspa?threadID=19803&MessageID=74193

I just wanted to add that this update does NOT resolve the problem in vista and it is NOT a driver problem. The update will not install in vista and vista is already provided with videoprt.sys 5.1.2600.2911.

When it occurs, the laptop again indeed. You can manipulate and even hear the sounds, but the backlight does not come on or there is no output from the video card. I'm fairly certain that it is a signal of hardware problem.

No matter what laptop I, euro or us, could someone please tell me the file so that I can look at what changes actually code?


> Why this thread has been closed?
I think that the admin closed this thread because, as indicated by the user lumix2day the MS update has solved this problem.

The M400 was delivered with Win XP it's why the update should work with Windows XP!

Regarding your question.
Looks like you are using your own copy of Vista on the M400.
You should check if Vista is already up to date. Each week the new MS updates are published.

Additinally, I recommend updating the BIOS and check for a driver update more recent display!

Best regards

  • Satellite P300 - white screen after waking from sleep state

    I'm having this problem:
    The LCD screen may be empty when the computer is "awakened" from the sleep state. Nothing is visible on the internal LCD or an external monitor.

    There seems to be a solution:
    An update of the firmware for a component in the main circuit of the computer solves this problem. This update must be performed by an authorized Toshiba (ASP) Service provider. Until arrangements are made for the update, restart the computer by pressing the power on button for a few seconds.

    If you check the Toshiba document you would see that your Satellite P300 is not related to this issue.

    In your case I would recommend upgrading the BIOS and graphics driver.
    In addition to keep your operating system up-to-date.

    I had this problem under Win XP and a MS patch and an update of the graphics card driver helped solve this problem.

  • Satellite L40-139: new graphics driver is causing the problem after waking from sleep

    I have a three month old Toshiba Satellite L40-139 (PSL40E) with 1 GB of RAM with Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium pre-installed. This laptop worked very well for me for the basic headquarters far tasks, and I would have no problem recommending.

    In the last days I've updated the software and drivers from the Microsoft Update web site.

    Since the update driver Mobile Intel(r) 945 Express Chipset Family (to version, dated October 18, 2007), the screen resolution at 800 x 600 after awakening from the sleep state. The only way I found to fix it is to restart the PC.

    Other articles published on the web, I understand that this particular driver (Mobile Intel(r) 945 Express Chipset Family driver version) has caused many other problems on a variety of hardware and software platforms.

    Does anyone have a definitive solution for Satellite L40?

    I looked at four options.

    1. let the new installed driver and restart Windows each time after waking up from sleep mode. Rather, I must not do this.

    2. using the Restore Point created by Windows Update before the update of the driver, roll back to an earlier time. This seems to be a good course if it works.

    3 download an older version of the driver and reinstall it. I don't know which version would work but note that others have had success with the version. I guess a similar version could be included in the driver Package that can be downloaded from Toshiba Europe site, but have heard that the time required to download this software can exceed ten hours and am therefore reluctant to try.

    4. the fourth option is not really possible. I should be able to "Roll-Back" the driver in Device Manager, but the button is disabled.

    Although only a minor problem, it is very irritating and I would like to address them without causing other problems. Does anyone else have this problem? Someone has fixed it successfully?

    Hello Peter

    If I understand correctly, you use your usual laptop for daily work and you don't need any computer high-performance notebook. If I'm right I have to say that you should be happy if the laptop works well and stable.

    I don't really see any reason why you wanted to update chipset driver. In any case, you should try to roll back the BONES of time earlier and I hope everything will work again. There is absolutely no risk, and you can test it.

    Please post the result.

  • Windows 8 - start screen tiles are black after waking from sleep

    Recently installed Windows 8 Pro x 64. Whenever I have wake my computer from sleep and go to the home screen all the tiles are black, and the upper right corner where it shows my login and my avatar is missing. The rest start screen works as expected, and hovering just mouse over the tiles (or allowing the more alive to receive an update) will have show correctly.

    I was running the pre-release of windows 8 without this problem.

    My pc is completely up to date with drivers.

    Data sheet:

    I7 920

    Gigabyte ex-58-extreme (bios f12)

    2 x nvidia geforce gtx 580 in sli (310.97 driver whql)

    Samsung 840 pro 256 GB ssd (windows disk)

    2 x wd caviar black 2 TB

    Creative xfi titanium hd (newest driver 3_00_2004)

    Between the previews and update windows 8 retail I made a few changes, the only hardware change is the addition of the samsung SSD (previously on a wd raptor drive). The pilot 310.97 nvidia is also new, I was using an older version before.

    I couldn't find anyone else with this issue a web search or a search here.

    Anyone able to shed some light on this?

    I solved this problem by updating the video card drivers. I lived this question about the version of the nvidia geforce 310.97 driver, but upgrading to 313.96 has solved the problem.

  • black screen after waking from sleep

    have a 2009 Intel-based iMac that wake properly from sleep if more than 30 minutes. It is a screen 24 '', 5 GB RAM and processor Core 2 Duo 3.06 GHz, 256 GB SSD drive and was just upgraded to El Capitan at the start of this behavior. The extra RAM and SSD have been installed a few days before the upgrade of El Caitan, so am not sure that the upgrade of the OS was the culprit, but it seemed to work normally after the SSD and RAM have been added. After that the computer sleep long enough to power down disks, etc., the screen remains dark when the computer wakes. If you put it to sleep then it wake up immediately he returns normally without problems. You can hear the startup sound and can even connect and enter the password and hear the mail and other programs that are running, giving their notification sounds, etc.. However, the screen remains dark. If you restart it 10 or 15 times the screen will start normally and the computer works perfectly. diagnosis seems to indicate normal operation. I tried to reset the SMC and the NVRAM and start in safe mode, but these things have no effect. Is it possible to get help with this?

    I run Apple Hardware Test and found no hardware problem under standard test or extended. I ran the first aid on the SSD, but no permissions problem have been found. It is not as if I have a hardware problem, but a problem of software not defined.

  • Windows 8 I lose the internet connection after waking from sleep mode

    My wife has a new laptop from Toshiba with Windows 8. When he wakes from sleep mode, it detects all wireless signals. If it restarts the computer, it detects our own wireless, as well as all the neighbors signal. Is there a simple way to correct this trend? She dislikes having to reboot the computer whenever she wants to use it.

    Very interesting what's happening on a new machine. Are you sure the original wireless network card driver has not been updated (i.e. through Windows Update or its equivalent at Toshiba?)

    I guess that the wireless network card driver doesn't handle well "message sent" by the system when it changes the power state change leading to a 'dormant' device (in this case the WiFi network) on the revival of the fashion Watch (same problem with the Hibernate?).

    Not knowing your model Toshiba, or wireless network card let me suggest you try the following if options exist for 1 # *:

    1. Go to the section of the network adapters and Device Manager. Right-click your wireless card, and select Properties. Go to the power management tab, uncheck allow the computer to turn off this device and check allow this device to wake the computer , and then save your changes
    2. Go to the control panel and Power Options to change the parameters of the plan (for the selected power Plan), and then select change advanced power settings / wireless adapter / power save Mode / connected and select value is A maximum Performance otherwise affect this value

    * Not sure about my translation of terms/options used above - I am not in an American version

    If the above does not help I'd you make investigations with Toshiba on this issue as the owner of a new machine, you're probably eligible for a level of support.

    + Feel free to bring your network card and Toshiba models - this helps in search of possible measures and troubleshooting. And it could help other people if solve you the problem sooner or later...

    Hope this helps

    See you soon


  • Desktop computer does not display the computers on the network after waking from sleep.

    Both computers work on Vista Home Basic. Problem started after computers, the router and a DSL modem has been turned off and unplugged. After the awakening of the day before, the Office would display only the router and the laptop, but the way that he could not establish. Initially, a reboot of the desktop computer has solved the problem.

    Reset and re-installed the router. The three elements of the network were visible after the start, but IE 8 soon at the opening of the homepage. Again, after "standby" mode, only the router and the laptop displayed.

    After additional restart, only the router is displayed. The laptop shows all three elements and accessing office files.


    Hi Syed,

    I did a full reset/reinstall the router, carefully following the manufacturer's instructions. Both computers are displayed in each of their respective lists of network, even after waking up from sleep mode.

    This issue is resolved.

    Thank you


  • TM2 - Win7 hangs at the splash screen after waking from sleep and hibernation

    I had intermittent problems with the mode 'sleep' on my laptop TM2T-2200 (Windows7 64-bit).  Wake up sleep & put into hibernation, the system will have problems with log-in intermittently.  Generally speaking, I'll be able to move my mouse cursor and enter my password - but pressing enter, the system hangs at the splash screen, requiring a hard - reboot (by pressing the power button).  Sometimes, I've not yet will be able to enter my password before it crashes.

    The problem seems to occur more in energy saving mode, but it occurred in '' HP recommended Mode '' once or twice now, too.  It looks a lot like the problems reported for other models HP here:


    Any suggestions?  Is it possible to know if a particular driver or a program that hangs?

    Update: my problems seem to be associated with protection against malware of Comcast constant guard and disappeared after uninstalling the program.

  • M6-w105dx envy: envy x 360 m6 convertible w105dx screen after waking from sleep


    Whenever I put my laptop to sleep (I almost cover) and I try to wake up (I open the lid) the screen is full of small squares (they resemble pixels). I don't see a little square that moves when I move the mouse.

    If I turn it off by pressing the power button and turn it on again, its perfect.

    My laptop is brand new.


    Hey! I just fix it! Called the phone to HP support and spoke to a very nice guy who fixed it for me. It took about 40 minutes on the phone (call is free) and now I don't have the problem more.

    It was something on the BIOS and the graphics card updates.

    Suggest you do the same.

  • Much time for re - connect to the router wirelessly after waking from sleep

    Hello, hope someone can help.

    I 64but Win 7 on an Acer laptop, connected to a Belkin wireless router, when the computer wakes up from his sleep, it takes 30-45 seconds for the adapter to reconnect to my network - get the spinning blue "o" for a while.

    At first I thought the wireless adapter was power down, under power options, that I made, it has a maximum performance in all cases.

    No change. Then, I thought that perhaps it was due to the computer, enter the hybrid sleep mode, so I disabled who.

    No change. Then, I checked to make sure that the SSID of the router was broadcast (it is) and that the WEP keys are the same. They are.

    I have to update my firmware on the router? The router is at least a year - I don't have it in front of me, but it supports N and g should change my wireless network card drivers (it is an internal Intel chipset).

    What else could be the cause of this delay? It is very annoying. When connected, everything works fine.

    PS, I should add that I use the power of Microsoft Signature Plan, but I have changed the power adapter, as shown options above.

    Thanks Jack. I guess I'll have to live with it for now, although I might update my firmware on the router just for fun and giggles

    I ended up changed to WEP as WPA seemed to worsen my connection (fewer bars).

  • Time to update the BIOS and firmware of remote management?

    I'll put up a 'new' ThinkServer RD630 (2954A6U). It was purchased for a project that never happened, and we are now dry and reuse to replace an old Office Server. The current firmware versions are:

    • BIOS: 2.05
    • ME:
    • BMC 1.7
    • IPMI 2.0

    Page 61 of the User Guide ThinkServer says, "update the BIOS on your server only if the new BIOS version specifically solves a problem you have. We don't recommend updates to the BIOS for servers that do not need. [...]"

    As far as I know, we have no problems. The system starts fine and runs Windows Server 2012 well enough.


    Should I update the BIOS and firmware IMM (remote management) to the current version? Are there hidden problems, security issues or other concerns that it is worth?

    Other indicators of initial configuration that you can share with a new admin would be much appreciated, too! Thank you.

    With the help of the Lenovo Support, I was able to fix my problem where I couldn't get to the menu of the BIOS of the 630 RD (in F1) and all I saw was a cursor on the screen. I describe the procedure in detail here:


    Thank you to all those who commented above and especially to those who have sent me suggestions via PMs.

  • What is the best way to update the references to file after a move?

    I have a Photoshop Elements catalog picture with about 25 k images all pointing to a network share I call \\thehive. I moved, or sync'd if you want, all the files in the network share \\thehive on a drive of local storage for better performance, which is now located on P:\ drive. I intend to treat the P drive as my main drive that reads the catalog and use \\thehive network simply as a clone of the P drive that I intend to keep in sync with SyncToy. I have already all this configuration in place, the files are sync'd on the drive P and \\thehive, everything works as expected so far. But how to do to update the catalog so that it starts from the P drive instead of the \\thehive? A photo today points to \\thehive\2008\somepicture.jpg, and I need to point to P:\2008\somepicture.jpg.

    I'm a very advanced computer user, I could edit an XML file or do some advanced operations not supported if I had to. Would appreciate your thoughts and suggestions.

    The fastest way is to directly edit the values in the catalog.pse9db database.  The database is a database SQL Lite, so if you know (or know someone who knows) how to run SQL queries against a database, you have the chance because Adobe has done a great job of a highly normalized database schema design.

    I highly recommend this tent first on a copy of your database.  In general, the procedure goes like this:

    1. Add one of your images on the P: drive in the catalog.  This establishes a list for the P: drive and its identification in the volume_table table.
    2. Run a SQL query on the table of volume_table to see a list of all the lines.
    3. Note that the values in the column 'id' for your volume "the thehive" and one "P:".
    4. Run a SQL query on the media_table table to update the value of the id_volume column, replace all instances of the id number "the thehive' with the identification number of the reader"P: ". The SQL query will look something like this:

    Update media_table

    Set volume_id = "."

    where volume_id = "."

    I tested with PSE9.0.3 on Win7, changing the location of a CD on my E: drive on a USB on my F: drive.

    Good luck!
