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.)


Hi all,

I need to change the chasis of my L855-132 (PSKACE-03P007CE) and I don't succeed to find the part numbers needed. Does anyone know the part numbers of the palmrest and bottomcase of this model? Ain't there online any list or map of the laptop components?

I guess some models may only change in some tech specs that would not imply to have a different chasis. Could anyone tell me which are the closests models to L1855-132? That may increase the chances to find new parts.
Thanks in advance

I bought Toshiba Satellite L855 - 14 H four or three years ago, It was working all fine but few months ago my video chip stopped working.
Local services offered to heat up video chip , but I don't want that, I need long term sollution.
So I need to replace motherboard, but the problem is that I can't find any thrust worthy place to buy it. I have searched on ebay and other online shops but they seem fishy. Those video chips might be "heated" already. Is it possible to by motherboard directly from Toshiba? I don't need anything else, my CPU, RAM, HDD, fan , everything else is working, except the video chip.
I would be thankful if any of you could recommend me where should I look for motherboard replacement :)

For more information I bought the laptop in Latvia, Product key is : PSKAEE-00UooTG3 ,
Code on motherboard is : DK10FG - 6050A2509901 - MB - A02

Hello, my ac adapter wire just behind the connector has a tear in it and now it refuses to charge the laptop unless it is in a specific position, any sort of movement causes it to disconnect which s annoying. I would like to replace but I'm unsure what ac adapter I need.

I looked at the power brick and it says:

Input 100-240 V-1.6A 50-60 Hz

My laptop is a Satellite l855, what ac adapter will be compatible? I don't want to buy a wrong one where the amp is too high or too low and damage it.

I was really worried. So I hurry carried him up. Powered on and BAM. It didn't load Windows 8.1 but it Showed something like: "No Bootable Device Found. Please Restart".

I think my Uncle is Right... I even tried to Make Bootable UEFI Windows 8.1 Setup USB Disk. Setup Loaded Successfully. But It was Stucking at "Setup Is Starting" about 4 Hours.

Hi to everyone... i had update my Satellite to Windows 8 and i followed the instruction guide.
After the update the fn-keys don't work correctly:

Did you install the Win 8 upgrade assistant?
The Win 8 upgrade assistant helps you to get all Win 8 drivers.

Hi all,

I've had this laptop nearly 4 years, or is it 5? This morning, I woke up to find it was no longer charging the battery and the computer doesn't recognize an AC adapter plugged into it.

The computer itself works fine. I am not able to update BIOS because it wants me to plug in to AC power to do so, so I had to use nearly all of my remaining battery power to back up the data onto a portable external drive.

Changing outlets did not help. It's the same AC adapter that came with the computer and worked fine all this time.

The battery is now about 7% and I turned it off to save what little juice is left.

Not sure how to address this issue from here onward.

Thanks for any help or input.

A:Poor sound quality on Satellite L855


Your notebook supports an Realtek sound chip. Right?
In control panel you can find the Realtek HD Audio Manager.

Here you can change the sound effects? you can change the sound properties and can add some deep bass using the equalizer settings.

Greetings friends,
the problem goes like this: I have a TOSHIBA satellite, L855-12N, series notebook.

After updrading to Win 10, some of my keys (a,n, enter) were not working initially.
If I wait for some time, they would start work later.
I find that if I keep pressing a button, (e.g. the button "a") for a long time, I see that it gradually starts to respond, then stop again, then respond - stop, until finally it works OK.
I tried to upgrade the drivers, unistall then reinstall them, but it does not seem to work.
Does anyone know what is happening, or have a suggestion?
Thank you.

A:Satellite L855 - 12N - Keyboard problem after upgrade to Windows 10

Are you 100% it's a Windows 10 issue?
Sounds more like a hardware problem, keyboard may need replacing.

Go into the BIOS and test the keyboard in there.
If it happens in the BIOS as well then replace the keyboard.

If it is a software problem, try uninstalling the touchpad driver via Control Panel, then reinstall it through Windows Update.

I changed to Linux two years ago, and I can't use the Catalyst Centre or offical AMD gpu driver. I wasn't able to upgrade it when I had Windows 8 either (the display was broken into stripes), and I had to dowload the ones made available by Toshiba. I was told back then (2013) that they needed to be "tweaked" for my laptop.

So I would like to know:

1. Does Toshiba offer any support for this problem in Linux?
2. If not, can Toshiba at least explain why they need to tweak AMD drivers? Do they modify the hardware?
3. What exactly needs to be done to get AMD drivers working in a Toshiba laptop in Windows and/or Linux?

Brand new laptop running windows 8.1 Touchpad works for about 30 seconds after windows boots up then stops. Tried downloading latest drivers from Toshiba site but it didn't fix the problem. Tried the touchpad function keys but that is not the issue. Called Toshiba support and they suggested sending it in for a factory reset.

I also have a problem with AMD graphics going split screen after computer goes into a sleep state. Downloaded and installed latest drivers for this on advice of Tech support but not fixed either.

I'm a bit concerned as a search shows both these problems not uncommon and iv'e spent a lot of time copying over data and installing software, don't want to lose it and lose time waiting for factory reset if I have to send ot back.

Anyone have any ideas?

Hi there,

My laptop had become virus-infested and slow so I decided on a System Recovery to factory settings to start with a clean slate.

After executing the System Recovery, I wanted to reinstall some software, and then soon found out that my CD-ROM/DVD was not working. I do not use my CD-ROM/DVD very often, but last time I used it prior to System Recovery it worked fine.

I tried to open Computer and right-click Eject on the DVD RW Drive: D but it wouldn't open, nor did it give me any errors

I tried to look up suitable drivers from the L855-122 series page on the Toshiba Support site, only found a Blue Ray DVD driver on that page. But it wouldn't install, as it said the player couldn't be found. So installation was aborted..

I tried to open the drivers via Device Manager of TSST corp CDDVDW SN-208AB and it says the hardware is working fine. I couldn't click on "update drivers", so I uninstalled the drivers and rebooted the laptop. Upon reboot the system automatically started to reinstall the drivers. But it failed to install, as it said the device couldn't be found.

I am letting the system search to update Driver Software now, but it has been running for 15 minutes without any progress whatsoever. I had to kill the process in Task-manager because it became stuck.

I tried to force eject the CD-ROM/DVD player but I didn't understand if this laptop even has a force eject button. I poked into some holes with a pin close to the eject button but it had no effect.... Read more

Hi, I have Toshiba Satellite L855-14C and recently the DC IN/Battery indicator started flashing orange / amber. The frequency is constant, about every second. This is the indicator that I mean (outlined in red):

According to manual:
This can happen because:
Remaining battery capacity is low (if no charger connected)There is a problem with power supply / charger

I did some tests on my own and if I remove the battery and use just the charger, then the LED does not flash anymore and has white color. If I unplug the charger and keep just the battery in, then the laptop does not even turn on, or immediately shuts down (if I unplug the charger when laptop is turned on already). Windows battery status reports, that the battery is 99% charged and that it is not charging.

Here are some more details about the battery which I dumped using BatteryInfoViewer:

Battery Name

Serial Number

Power State
AC Power

Current Capacity (in %)

Current Capacity Value

My friend's in the market for a new computer; for various reasons, it looks like Toshiba will be the brand of choice.
(foremost among them being local-area service/support in Indonesia, where she'll be for 3+ years).
That said, the only Toshibas that we've been able to get some hands-on 'look and feel' sessions with were
the Satellites (i.e. the entry-level machines); they were... OK... the build quality felt... well, retail-ish =p
Anyone have experience with the next tier up, the Satellite Pro models?
Presumably the build quality is at least on par with the Satellites; any better? Appreciablly better, that is?
If simply on par, she may as well get a Satellite and take her chances...
Thanks in advance.

I didn't find the right solution from the internet.

I have an R830-1GZ Bios version 3.70 EC Version 1.50
And also a R630- 138 BIOS version 2.20 EC Version 1.60 (this is the most up to date version for this discontinued model.)

The former will recognise my WD storage for what it is - ie an external HDD. And the boot priority in the bios shows it below the internal HDD - which is what you would expect for correct operation.

The latter (R630) will always try to boot from the WD storage. It does not show the WD HDD in the Bios Boot priority list.

I can continue to unplug and replug the usb cable into the R630 - but it is a nuisance. I'm sure the problem is down to the BIOS not being new enough. What would be the likely result of flashing the 3.70 version - designed for the R830, onto the R630?

I'm expecting to be told it will make the R630 inoperable. But these laptops are very similar, so I'm hoping someone might have a more hopeful response.

Thanks for your help

A:Flashing the Satellite R830 BIOS onto the Satellite R630

First of all:
you can download only the Toshiba win based BIOS from Toshiba EU driver page.
This means that you can update the BIOS only while running the windows system.

it would not be possible to update the R830 BIOS onto the R630 since there is a protection which would break up the flash process because of compatibility issue.

You could damage the notebook if you would still try to update the wrong BIOS (maybe using the traditional BIOS version, USB version, etc?)
So this is really bad, bad idea doing this?

Official statement is 4 GB HDD for Satellite 2550CDT and 6 GB HDD for Satellite 2590CDT.
It is not easy to find such info but maybe you can use 10 GB HDD. I don't know for sure.
BIOS update has nothing to do with this and new BIOS version is not designed to increase hardware upgrade values but to fix some serious problems.

According notebook specification Satellite 2550CDT has Celeron 366 CPU and Satellite 2590CDT has Celeron 400. Both CPUs have the same bus clock I presume you can upgrade CPU to Celeron 400.

I would like to put an internal DVD into my Satellite P50-C-18k. Toshiba do not seem to have any info on the website that I can find. I have spent a couple of hours on the web trying to find a suitable one and so far the spec seems to be
9.5mm slimline
SATA interface
It needs a tab on the back so that the screw through the underside of the laptop can hold it in place.- not sure if they all have this or if its a Toshiba special.
The front bezel should match the shape of the laptop body - most that I see on Amazon etc have a flat front and quite a few do not even include the bezel and assume that you are just swapping on old broken one for a working one and that you will be able to reuse the old old bezel..

First of all does anyone know the model number of the correct drive
Can they be bought anywhere
Is there a compatible model
Do all 9.5mm DVDs have the same screw fitting

Ultimately I could just use an external drive but it would be more convenient to have it built in.

Hi folks,

my intention is to buy a technical solution for looking TV on a PC or Laptop.
Yesterday I found an article in a blog http://blindschleiche.wordpress.com/satellite-tv-for-pc/ and now I am not sure if that product is ok.
Can anybody help me who is familiar with this product? Is it a good tip to buy it? Many thanks in advance.

A:Satellite TV for PC

I am not familiar with that particular product but based on how they describe it, it sounds similar to a few "Watch TV on your computer" services being sold these days.

You are basically buying software containing a list of web sites that stream video content. The software may include some type of video player. You could probably find all of the same streaming video web sites on your own with a bit of searching. Don't expect to find many on-line versions of the same channels you would get with a satellite receiver with a paid satellite service.

Hello there,
I've got some problems with my laptop.
My laptop is using the integrated GPU (Intel HD Graphics 4600) instead of the other GPU (AMD Radeon R9 M200X).
And it has a impact to the perfomance of a lot of games, that I'm playing on my laptop.
I looked into the BIOS, in hope, there's a option to do that, but I was worng.
There was not a single option to change that or somehow force it to use a different GPU.
I also googled about my problem, but Google gave just one single result and even that one didn't helped.
I tried everything, from disabling the integrated GPU (which it's f**** around with the screen resolution)
to re-installing the drivers for the AMD GPU 'n' stuff.
I'm out of ideas now....
Is there a way to force my laptop (P70-B-116) to use the AMD Radeon R9 M200X instead of the Intel HD Graphics 4600?

(Also, I don't speak greek at all, just to let you know. :P)

Has anyone signed up for Satellite TV for PC? I first learned about it in a ZD Net window and I assume that it is endorsed by them. It's a one time charge of $49.95 and it supposedly enables you to receive up to 3000 stations worldwide.
Sounds too good to be true and I would first like to talk to someone who has actually signed on.

Hy my question is very simple.
Runs a Satellite L40 with 4GBRam 2x2?
Because there is a note in the Handbook that this system only allow max 2GB.
But in some friends told my that this are old Handbooks and this is not tru.
Is it right?

Thank you for your help!

A:Re: Satellite L40-143 with 4GB Ram is that possible?

Intel Celeron-M CPU's are generally limited to 2GB. I really doubt you can use 4GB.

A:Satellite Pro M70 does not see the HDD sometimes


I think it?s a HDD issue? of course it?s really strange that the HDD can be recognized sometimes and sometimes it?s not visible but I doubt that this could be software related issue. Therefore I think it?s a HDD and in my opinion you should check if other SATA HDD would run properly.

We recently got a 2-way satellite at work for our internet. It connects to a computer via USB. The machine that's directly connected to it hits nearly 400k when downloading, which is near the max for the setup. However, all our other computers on average only download at about 10 - 20 k. We used ICS and now we use sygate to share the internet with the same results. The only exception to this is when we use a program called Download Accelerator Plus - it will hit nearly 300k. Now, I understand how DAP works but theres got to be a way to increase the speed for other downloads (without using DAP).
The following has been tried and increased performance slightly: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;230116 Also, machines with XP download at nearly 100k without any settings being changed, therefore the problem lies with windows 98 client machines. Any tips?

My father believes he can get all kinds of television channels for roughly $50 - a one time fee - to view on his computer rather than just keeping their DirecTV. I believe it was called PC4Me.

Her's the deal: I have a Toshiba Satellite p25 s520 that I have been using up until today. Over the past couple of weeks I've noticed some very strange things going on, so of course I thought... Virus. By strange things I mean folders being in reverse alphabetical order when opened within any program despite being okay in Explorer. I reset all folders to Default but it kept happening. Also, every time windows loads I get the Found Hardware Wizard for a Printer...I've never connected a printer to this machine. Whenever I did a ctl-alt-del the number of processes running were riddiculous...60-70, which about 12 of those were the same process... svchost.exe. Another thing is that I had a trial version of System Mechanic that when it was installed would defrag the Boot every start up. I uninstalled it but I still see "System Mechanic Defrag Boot" at startup. I'm thinking now that maybe I uninstalled some files that my registry needed or something. Well, I have run Norton's, McAfee, and a few other online scans and each turned up nothing. I even ran Nortons in SafeMode just to make sure. I've also run Spy Doctor and Adware but came up with nothing.
Last Night I brought home my new desktop pc w/ 160G HDD that I was going to transfer all my files to and then do a factory restore on my Satellite. The trouble I am having there is that I have a USB to Ethernet adapter (USB on desktop to Ethernet on Laptop) that i'm not sure how to configure within network settin... Read more
