I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello all, I have a G500S Touch and am currently running Win-10 64bit. I have been having an issue with the system turning off whenever I unplug the ac adapter. It doesn't shut down in the normal sense, but, just turns off. Power management settings our on default and battery is at 100%. I bought a new battery thinking that was the issue,but, it is still doing the same thing. I've ran scans through lenovo solutions and it reads that everything is good. Kind of at a loss at what to do next. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Scott

Hello everyone,

About a year ago I bought a genuine replacement battery for my U500. A few months ago, the battery seemed to have gone bad (no charging), and since I was traveling I didn't have time to take it back to the dealer for yet another replacement. Last week, however, it started working normally all of a sudden - or so I thought.

As it turns out, the battery did actually charge (it recharged from zero to 95% in about an hour, and now the icon says "95%, not charging"), but it won't power the machine; if I pull the plug, the machine will die immediately.
I tried taking the batter out and cleaning the contacts, but that didn't seem to help.

Any input on this is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Shady

A:Battery fully charged, but Satellite U500 won't power up

I think the battery is faulty.
Probably you purchased some kind of imitation product even if the part number would be the same.

Many 3rd party online dealers provide cheap ?china? batteries which are compatible (the battery dimensions are the same) but the performance isn?t the best?

I think you will need to replace the battery once again?

Hi Raouaa, Please use Lenovo Settings to confirm the status of the battery, from your description of the issue it seems that this is a defective battery. Lenovo Settings should show you that the battery status is destroyed, if this is the case I would recommend getting in touch with Lenovo Warranty Support and getting the battery replaced if the unit is still under warranty. You can get in touch by clicking on the Contact Us link at the bottom of the page under Support.Cheers,

Hi all.

First post and all that, I have had a look through to see if I can find my particular issue, and I don't think I can.

I posted this in a different sub-forum, but then realised it belongs here... d'oops!

An L850. It will work fine on battery, but will not power from the charger cable. Usefully, a colleague also has another L850 (I bought two together) so I can charge my battery seperately in his machine.

If I start the machine on a charged battery, it works fine. If you then plug in the mains adaptor, the lamp will light on the front of the machine, but it's clearly not charging as the machine works until the battery is flat, and then turns off, and will not turn back on until you independently charge the battery and put it back in.

Every time the machine is powered on, it also complains that the RTC battery is flat, and you have to set the time in the BIOS. This is the CR2032 coin cell internally on the motherboard isn't it?

what I cannot understand is that the unit clearly understands that the charger is plugged in, as the LED lights to say it is charging the battery. Except it isn't, and it's not keeing the unit on either. Battery works for about 40 mins these days, after that, machine dead.

Any ideas? I'm assuming there is something wrong with the charging circuit internally, but the fact that the LED lights when it is plugged in suggests otherwise..

Thanks for any ideas.

David.

A:Satellite L850 - Mains charger / battery issues, not the normal issue...

Bit more information on this. When plugged in, the icon on the screen says "Plugged in, charging", but the battery icon animates charging only for about 10 seconds, then stops, and the battery is clearly not charging as the % drops away slowly.

I found from a google that one fix is the "remove everything, hold power for 30 seconds, reconnect". This has made no difference. I've also found advice to uninstall the battery driver software from the device manager and allow it to re-install. Done this, still no different.

I've had the hard-disc out and in a USB caddy to recover all my files, and am now doing the "factory restore" option which I think is from a restoration partition on the hard disc. This is working away, but I think is still running on battery only, so not sure if it's going to complete!

Hello everybody,

Hi

All drivers for your notebook model you can find on http://www.toshibamea.com/en/Download-Files

Your PSKG8V model is listed there. Maybe it sound stupid now but I don't know what the ?power driver? is. If your notebook was delivered with original preinstalled OS I recommend you to set BIOS to default settings and install original recovery image.
After doing this you can test functionality with ?factory settings?.

Post some feedback please.

A:Satellite Pro L850-1EF does not power up

First of all a good news: your personal files on the HDD like pictures, photos should not be affected.

You could get access to the files removing the HDD from the notebook (details here: http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/kb0/CRU2603C20000R01.htm) and connecting this HDD to another computer using an USB-SATA 2.5” enclosure.

Now bad news: from my point of few your notebook developed an serious hardware malfunction; maybe its just an RAM module problem… in such case you would need to replace only the RAM modules but in worst case the motherboard could be faulty and such fix could be very expensive procedure.

Hi Geminy,
let's make sure that you:

1) replaced the broken hard drive for a new one that is working fine

2) tried to install Ubuntu linux using your DVD optical drive, and installation were successful (or you just tried to start system from live-dvd and not finished installation to HDD)?

3) put the Windows installation media in your DVD-drive and – what happens? It will not boot from the DVD-disk, it will not start installing windows, it does not see the HDD drive and says there is no place for install… Does the windows installer raport any problems? Do you see any messages? Does it restart by itself?
Which version of windows you try to install? Is it the same version you had on your laptop before the HDD crashed?

Is the new hard disk mechanical hard-drive or electronic SSD type?

Possible problems are with: the BIOS settings (UEFI / CSM mode, secure boot option and so on), with HDD/SATA drivers (AHCI / compatibility…) or maybe simply you have installed Ubuntu on hard drive and now windows has no space to fit there, nor it sees any space as it is XFS/EXT4 formatted by linux. There are also many other possibilities, so please give as many information as you can.

best regards

Hi There,

I have a Toshiba Satellite L850-1V8 with windows 8.1 64bit on it.

I experience the following problem: Some times when I boot the system the NT kernel process 'System' (PID 4) starts spinning, taking up 100% of a a single core.

This happens about 3-5 mins after the system comes up, but a few times I have seen it starting hours later.
I have to reboot the system to make this problem go away.

Has anyone experience such problem?
Any ideas where to start looking for a solution?

A:Satellite L850-1V8 - 'System' process (PID 4) uses 100% of CPU

Such process can be related to any software / system application running in the background

But from my knowledge the NT Kernel & system could be generated by http.sys using the port 80.

This would mean that and would mean that some software part like IIS (internet Information services) could be responsible for this background process.

I know it sound stupid now but your question is a bit strange for me. Why?

Every preinstalled operating system is already activated so when you buy new notebook with preinstalled OS you have also bought one valid licence. This licence or used product key belongs to preinstalled OS version and cannot be used in any other case. With other words this product key is useless for you and you cannot use it for other OS version.

A:Re: Satellite L850-1HP - windows 8.1 activation

I have no idea why your system activation needs to be repeated even if the Win 8 and Win 8.1 were activated properly in the past.

I think there must be some system bug. However, I would recommend you to check the Microsoft ?Get help with activation errors? page and to check the recommended workarounds.
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-8/activation-errors
Hopefully you would be able to fix it without recovering the system.

The point is that the preinstalled is already activated (or it activates automatically connection to internet for the first time) and Toshiba does not provide any serial keys in order to activate the system.

Hi,

I've got a client who has an L850-1DW / PSKDHE-00E005EN notebook.

She keeps reporting that the computer does not start properly from cold.
She claims the issue presents itself mainly when booting from battery but occasionally when plugged in to the mains.
I can see in the event logs that BSODs have been registered on start-up and that on more than one occasion her computer was recovered from a Windows Restore point. It was also recovered back to factory defaults on a separate occasion too.

Although I've seen the after effects of these "start-up" issues I've yet to experience them first hand whilst testing the device.

I did notice yesterday that the BIOS was out-of-date (as I got a Tempro alert).
I've upgraded it from 1.6 to 6.50. Again, I've not experienced any issues.
I can't find any release notes for the BIOS so I don't know if this is a known issue that has been fixed.
I'm not sure if this "intermittent" fault is just that or whether the user is holding the power button down too hard or for too long and in effect inadvertently crashing the NB herself.

Any suggestions welcome.

Failing that I guess I'll have to log a call with Toshiba.

A:Satellite Pro L850-1DW does not start properly

On this virtual way it is not easy to say what is wrong there. In my opinion you should ask your client if you can do data back-up and install original recovery image. In my opinion notebook should be tested with ?factory settings? without some additional software installation.

> I'm not sure if this "intermittent" fault is just that or whether the user is holding the power button down too hard or for too long and in effect inadvertently crashing the NB herself.
Who knows? Ask with your client and show how to start notebook by pressing power button. It should be done gently and for one second only.

[SIZE=3I have recently acquired a pre-owned Satellite L850-B389 I have some questions and I was hoping I'd get some feedback. It comes with Windows 8.1 installed and I'm planning on changing to Windows 10 (note: clean install, not upgrade). Here are some inquiries I have in mind:

• I saw the drivers from the support page and it says that the drivers are compatible only for Windows 8.1 and earlier. Would the 8.1 drivers be enough or would work well with Windows 10?

• If there are updated drivers (for Windows 10), where can i find them? (I've been using DriverPack Solution recently and I noticed, its not accurate with some machines in some instances)

• Upon acquiring the unit, the internal BlueTooth module is being detected - I can tell because I can see the BT icon on the System Tray. But by the time I had it back from repairs, I noticed its no longer there. I tried upgrading and downgrading the drivers but to no avail. I mean, the Wireless LAN and BT are just one component, right? And I can still connect wirelessly.

What seems to be wrong?
Any idea that could shed light to these would be great. Thanks in advance, guys.

I also contacted and they seemed to say was Ok but you might have some issues and we won't guarantee it will work as it does on 8.0.

So, it seems like the best thing to would be to leaver her on 8.0 and not bother with 8.1.

Any suggestions?

A:Satellite L850 - Update from Win8 to 8.1

Hello

I don't know which L850 has your client but fact is that this model is supported for Win8.1 upgrade. If you visit Toshiba download page on http://www.toshiba.eu/innovation/download_drivers_bios.jsp you will see all listed stuff that should be installed.

More about Win8.1 update you can find on http://www.toshiba.eu/innovation/generic/windows8_1-message/

In my opinion you should create recovery media with original Win8. After doing this install Win8.1 update following instructions on Toshiba Win8.1 page. Check the functionality and if everything is OK I hope your client will be very happy.

If there is some problem install original Win8 version from recovery media and notebook can be used with ?factory settings? again.

By the way: check Win8.1 section on this forum to see if there is some issue with L850 model.

Hello,

One of our schools recently brought 20 Toshiba L850 and C850 Laptops.

As most of the staff use their VGA port to connect to their projector, The VGA port needs to be strong.

Over the last few days we have had 2 Laptops with the VGA Port actually come away from the laptop!

A simple nudge on the cable while it is connected breaks this port, and we are unable to get a repair from Toshiba because it is our fault and is only 1 YEAR OLD!!.

Fixing this issue will set us back an entirely new mobo which will most likely be the cost to buy a new laptop.

Out of the 20 we brought we have had over half with faults within the first year of use. under EU regulations regarding the item of being merchantable quality and fit for purpose these issues should be repaired for atleast 3 years of purchase date. otherwise the item is unfit for sale.

Other issues we have had with these laptops within the first year of purchase have been Overheating, with Fans stopping.

We have had a Hard drive replaced TWICE with us having to purchase one our self's because Toshiba refused to replace as it was out of warrenty by 2 weeks. (warranty being only 1 year)

And finally a L850 that will not start. It stops at the Toshiba loading screen before even reaching the BIOS. ( faulty CPU or Memory ) Again this laptop breaking within 2 years.

By the way it can be temporary server issue. Test it tomorrow again.

We've installed a blank Windows 7 setup on our L850, the added the drivers. We are finding the the Fn-F12 (or F12 depending on BIOS setup) only switches the Bluetooth and not the Wi-Fi on and off.

Can anyone give any guidance on how I can get the Fn-F12 to switch the Wi-Fi as well.

This is the source of a major headache on our school machines

Thanks guys

So my 2 or 3 weeks old ideapad 110-15ISK laptop just started having a problem with its' battery the day before yesterday. It claims to be 100% charged when I click on the battery but the battery symbol shows no energy, it says it is plugged in but not charging, and the second I unplug the laptop it will shut down. I have checked the forums and the internet for multiple solutions such as turning it off conservative mode(which it wasn't anyway) or removing and readding the battery devices in device manager, but nothing has worked. Is there anything else that you think you guys could help me with before I take it to the store or a support center?

Hi, my Miix 510-12isk just came back from repair, it's motherboard was changed by Lenovo technician.it's battery currently charging up to 100% and running OK when the power cord is connected. but it shuts down immediately when I unplug the power cord.  I run the Battery report on PowerShell and it's showing the full charge capacity slightly higher than the design capacity. the battery status from the report looks normal. I tried turning on the Lenovo without the power cord connected, it turns on for 2 seconds with the Lenovo Logo and then shut down again. I tried pressing Power button + Volume Up together, the same result. I would really appreciate some help with identifying the issue and solution. PLEASE HELP!

Hi, I have cracked panel. Sister felt on cauch and sit on screen while computer laying on couch fully opened lid and machine was working. Cristal leaked under the glas layer. His soul left to heaven. Sister is OK.

Brief inspection found that NB is still alive (not a screen) , connected to external vga panel everything was working OK.
New panel was ordered. After reinstalation got no backlite. Screen is dark, but it is posible to see the content on screen if backlighted with torch or lamp. It is working, just all is on "dark side".

First , I can't get POST while external screen is connected. It shows the picture when windows already starting.
For this reason I dare not to upgrade BIOS which is asked by Toshiba control center or what else is called that thing running on system. It also asked for video driver update as well what I did , but no difference.
At the Computer- Hardware list, at the Display, I can see two devices. Both are recognised as Generic Display. Other one should be external screen.
Is this normal? I mean, does at least LCd panell should be recognised as something else then "generic"?

Before replacement panel was ordered it happens to have another broken L750 (this one was washed with water while ON) . Repair service send it back as "total damaged".

I tried to put panel from this one in hope that will work and it did.
Panels were perfect matched (type and model). And it did worked. Brightness was not the be... Read more

Hello,

One of our schools recently brought 20 Toshiba L850 and C850 Laptops.
As most of the staff use their VGA port to connect to their projector, The VGA port needs to be strong.

Over the last few days we have had 2 Laptops with the VGA Port actually come away from the laptop!
A simple nudge on the cable while it is connected breaks this port,
and we are unable to get a repair from Toshiba because it is our fault and is only 1 YEAR OLD!!.
Fixing this issue will set us back an entirely new mobo which will most likely be the cost to buy a new laptop.

Out of the 20 we brought we have had over half with faults within the first year of use. *under EU regulations regarding the item of being merchantable quality and fit for purpose these issues should be repaired for atleast 3 years of purchase date.* otherwise the item is unfit for sale.

Other issues we have had with these laptops within the first year of purchase have been Overheating, with Fans stopping.

We have had a Hard drive replaced TWICE with us having to purchase one our self's because Toshiba refused to replace as it was out of warrenty by 2 weeks. (warranty being only 1 year)

And finally a L850 that will not start. It stops at the Toshiba loading screen before even reaching the BIOS. ( faulty CPU or Memory ) Again this laptop breaking within 2 years.

VALUE FOR MONEY? i think not.

I am for sure thinking of moving away from Toshiba laptops in the future for our chain of 18 schools which ... Read more

A:Multiple issues on Satellite C850 and L850

Hi

Sorry to hear all this. Of course it is not the best opinion about Toshiba notebooks but the first thing I?m asked myself after reading your posting was: why they have bought these L and C models?

As every other notebook manufacturer Toshiba offers different models with different hardware platforms and different prices. Following my logic notebooks used in school must be pretty robust and designed to be more in use. If you compare notebook from series L and C with notebook series P for instance you will notice big difference in design, quality and workmanship.

Of course there is big price difference and I can imagine school have limited budget and must look to obtain machines but also save some money.

What else to say? It is really annoying to have such problems especially if you need those machines for work. My only advice for you is to pick up more info about notebooks next time. It can be Toshiba or any other notebook manufacturer. Best thing you can do is to contact your local dealer and check several different models. Pay attention about quality and design.

Bye and good luck

Hi everybody,

I just would like to know if the drivers available for Satellite L850-16D under the title "windows 8 upgrade" are good also for a total fresh installation of windows 8 64 bit, or if they are only good for an upgrade to it from windows 7 64 bit.

Thanks

A:Question about Windows 8 drivers for Satellite L850-16D

Hi

The Win 8 Upgrade Assistant connects to an driver server and downloads the Win 8 drivers for the notebook.
This should function also with clean Win 8 installation.

But don?t forget to create a Toshiba Recover disk before switching to Win 8.
The recover disk allows you to go back to Win 7 if you would like to use the Win 7 in the future..

Ive had this machine for almost 3 years, it was fine for the first two but now its becoming a chore.
I only really ever use it to surf the internet and load some photos and its main problem is using the internet.
Images and web pages are extremely slow to load even on a good fast wired connection. Ive had the computer restored by a local shop who claimed they reset the graphics card but in reality they probably just restored it to factory minus the toshiba bloatware.
It worked fine for 2 days and then became slow again, im happy its not a virus or malware related problem.
Just wondered realistically if anything can be done with it or is it best to just forget about it and move on to something new.
Its been upgraded to windows 10 but the problem existed on 8 too.
Thanks in advance.

Try a Windows Refresh to reinstall Windows.
Previous drivers or browser plugins may be causing the problem
