Whenever I try the update is installed, the computer restarts and says while the previous version is restored because the update failed (0xC1900101 & 0 x 30018).

    No, the preinstalled Windows 8 Toshiba is already activated and during the upgrade to 8.1 Win will not ask you to enter the serial key...

  • Satellite Pro C850-15N - some keys do not work.

    Am 90 per cent positive that this is not the fault of a broken keyboard keys do seem loose and work very well for a while.*
    Basically, the other day I noticed the keys 3 and 5 were not work next to the f3 key (meaning I now have to go into the settings of brightness, whenever I want to increase it). I thought "I'll just reboot and see if that fixes anything" and he did... temporarily. I have to restart every time that I've lost the ability to use these keys, but now it does nothing.

    There is no update which should install Windows (updated 8.1 update 1 recently).
    There is no update options the keyboard driver (the box is grayed out).
    There is nothing stuck, they seem not damaged or less they touch.

    * I asked this question on the Microsoft forums and I've learned to run the troubleshooter of material (did not help) and if defective, to search for the latest drivers for keyboard - seems to me later for my model, such as the toshiba site list any keyboard updates.*
    I also grabbed the driver files if this will be of no use at all:
    PS/2 standard keyboard

    Can anyone give me any help? I'll buy a USB keyboard in a few weeks anyway, but for now, it's really annoying not being able to use these keyboard shortcuts: P

    > I asked this question on the Microsoft forums and I've learned to run the troubleshooter of material (did not help) and if defective, to search for the latest drivers for keyboard - I seem to have the most recent for my model, as from Toshiba Web site does not list the keyboard updates.

    It seems that this opinion is not from Microsoft staff, but some users of the forum.
    You should know that the drivers of keyboard (developed by Microsoft) are still part of the Windows System. Any Windows OS you use, the keyboard driver would be always installed as part of the OS. This means that the drivers of special keyboard DON T exist but system uses own driver...

    You can check the functionality of the keyboard in USB external keyboard.
    If external keyboard works properly, the internal keyboard is malfunctioning and must be replaced.

    If the external keyboard does not work properly too, then I recommend you to recover the laptop using Toshiba HDD recovery. Otherwise, there could be question of motherboard (keyboard controller).

    Hi, I recently bought the Toshiba Satellite Pro C850-1CW
    It came with windows 8 preinstalled,

    I have no use or interest in windows 8, so I formatted the hard drive and installed windows 7.
    The problem I have is that there are no windows 7 drivers avalible for this laptop.

    However, I managed to install all devices, but am left with an unknown device in Device Manager that left me completely puzzled after trying everything I could think of,

    If guys, any help would be greatly appreciated friendly, brand...


    Have a look here in this How To doc:

    It would allow you to know which device you have and then you could find compatible drivers

    I can tell you that in many cases drivers released for other series of laptop would be too much work. You can test the drivers released for Satellite C850 (not Pro) series

  • Satellite Pro C850 - 1 H 8 - upgrade the BIOS CPU support

    Hi there are people.

    I'm wandering if there is a possibility of upgrade of the i5 3230 m which is currently in my Satellite Pro C850 - 1 H 8.

    Looking at the options available in the decision-making FCPGA988 and chipset Intel HM70 there seems to be a variety of the i7 available for use.

    The laptop supports processors with a TDP plu max than 35w?
    The bios supports all the CPU upgrade options?

    Cheers, Nick

    In this forum, you will find various discussions on the theme of CPU upgrade.
    I found this one:

    Paolo and Macius posted some information about the situation of CPU upgrade.
    As you can read in another thread, the CPU upgrade isn't supported. Updates can be made at your own risk, and no one can say if CPU supported by the chipset would be supported by the BIOS.
    Test it if you want, but it's at your own risk.

  • Satellite Pro C850 keyboard does not work properly and opens several programs

    My satellite pro C850 1HE keyboard intermittently stops working correctly, and begins to open programs, for example, by pressing F will open the file search, C open computer this kind of thing

    is there a permanent solution to this problem?

    This is not something to do with installed programs is not something to do with the browser settings.
    restarting the computer works in a short time, but that is a long time, it's really annoying because I use this for work and study!

    > is there a permanent solution to this problem?

    The question is what causes this problem? Is it related hardware or software related issue?

    Why n t connect a USB keyboard just to check if the same would happen?

    In case the USB keyboard would work fine, I guess that the internal keyboard failures and the solution would be a simple replacement of the defective part.

  • Windows 8.1 upgrade is not possible because win 8 is not enabled

    A few months ago, I bought a new laptop of Toshiba Satallite with 8 Windows preinstalled
    Now I want to upgrade Windows 8 to 8.1 Windows. But I don't see the upgrade of Windows 8.1 in Windows store. I think it's because my current installed windows seems not you be activated...

    When I try to activate, I get error: 0xC004F074.
    I found a solution using the command: SLUI 3 and then enter the product key to activate it, but I don't have a product key! There is no sticker with a product key on the laptop.

    Could someone help me with this question, so I can activate my current installation of Windows 8 and upgrade to Windows 8.1?

    I had some problems with an upgrade to 8.1 to win in the past...
    Finally, I managed to install the Windows 8.1 update once the laptop has been set back to factory settings.

    I'm not sure if this should be done in your case, but where the 8.1 Win update is not possible after installing all the windows updates, you should reset the PC back to factory settings. After that the upgrade should work.

    New installation Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit OEM worked the 1st time on workstation Dell Precision 380 (Pentium 4, 3.0GH, 1 GB RAM, Windows XP), so I registered with Microsoft.  PC worked too slowly, so I upgraded the RAM from 1 GB to 4 GB.  PC will not start now.  Nothing on the website of dell, or the PC manual led me to believe that there could be a problem.

    After I had already performed several tests, PC manufacturer said to install Windows 7 AFTER upgrading the RAM.  However, as the installation before the upgrade of RAM and joined already, can I now reinstall the OS without affecting the OEM license.

    You can reinstall Windows OEM on the same computer. Case of failure of the online activation:

    Call Microsoft use the manual phone Activation

    If you have trouble activating Windows 7 you can call Microsoft to activate it by following these steps:
    1. with the operation of Windows, click Start, then in the search box type: slui.exe 4
    2. press enter on your keyboard
    3. Select your country.
    4. Select the telephone activation option, then dial the given number and hold for a real person.

  • Qosmio F10: processor upgrade is not possible?

    I have a Qosmio F10 has a 1.7 ghz processor.

    Is it possible to update. I'm doing some serious video editing and need at least 3.0 ghz


    Usually it of not possible to upgrade the CPU on laptops because of several reasons.
    But I read in this forum that some users here in the forum were able to replace the CPU on different laptops.
    However, this replacement will kill you warranty and if you do something like that you can do at your own risk!

    AFAIK the QOSMIO F10 series are a Pentium-M processor high-performance all-in-one PC.
    The microprocessor used depends on the model, but these processors were shipped with this series F10
    Mobile Intel Pentium - M 1.50 GHz (processor number; 715)
    Mobile Intel Pentium - M 1.60 GHz (processor number; 725)
    Mobile Intel Pentium M 1.70 GHz (processor number; 735)
    Mobile Intel Pentium - M 1.80 GHz (processor number; 745)
    Mobile Intel Pentium M 2.00 GHz (processor number; 755)
    Mobile Intel Pentium M 2.10 GHz (processor number; 765)

    It seems that the mobile Intel Pentium - M 2.10 GHz is the CPU more powerful that could be used and is compatible with the motherboard and you.
