Q: Portege R500 - Error message THotkey "This Audio device is not supported"

HI there,

Everytime I strat up my Portege R500 I get an THotkey error message saying "This Audio device is not supported". \
The same error message is repeated if I touch the volume icon. There is also is no sound.

Thank you,

Nico

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: Portege R500 - Error message THotkey "This Audio device is not supported"

Is it Vista or XP?

Did you install Windows yourself or was it preinstalled?

Maybe the wrong driver was installed (from another model for example).

Unfortunately I've just dropped on the carpet.
Both the DVD drive and the SD drive have now disappeared.
There are no optical drives listed in Device Manager.

I recently installed a replacement optical drive, because it had stopped working a while back.
The SD card reader has not worked properly for a long time, but still was listed.

The new DVD drive was working fine until the bump.

What I find puzzling is that the SD drive has disappeared as well.

I've taken the thing apart and checked the cables are still connected (the DVD drive to the SD board, and the SD board to the motherboard).
All drivers are bang up-to-date.
Windows 7 is up-to-date.

Any thoughts?

A:Portege R500 - DVD and SD have disappeared

In my opinion it must be hardware malfunction. Device can be connected but if the controller is defective the device will not be recognized properly.

You can install original recovery image and test functionality with ?factory settings?. If the problem persists, I think, there is nothing you can do about that. New manboard is solution for you.

Hello,

I have a PORTEGE R500 bought in 2007, SERIAL NO.48025469H.

I have obvious problems with VISTA and with WINDOWS 7. Both are not working well because it seems to have insufficient memory. I’m wondering if I can increase the memory and replace the disk with an SSD. I want to keep this notebook because it is perfect for all my needs.

Thanks

A:Portege R500 - RAM and SSD upgrade

Hi

According notebook specification your notebook can handle with ?GB RAM but was delivered with 2GB so memory upgrade is not possible.
http://www.toshiba.it/discontinued-p...tege-r500-11z/

What to say about SSD? SSD upgrade is possible and you can use 256GB SSD for upgrade. After doing this system will be much faster and you will get definitely more performance and ?speed?.

Hello Every Body.
I have just registered on the forum and I would like to request help from the forum members.
The help that I would like to request is about adding RAM Memory to my Notebook A Toshiba Portege R500.
The main reason for this request is because today I went to a computer shop and one of the technicians attempted to install 4GB RAM memory into my Notebook but it could not be done, when the new Memory was installed my notebook would not start.

Hi,

Is it possible to install Windows 8 on a Portege R500 ? I tried and failed. I think the reason is that Windows 8 uses a GPT disk and not MBR.

Is there a BIOS update to deal with GPT disks ?

Thank you

A:Installing Windows 8 on Portege R500

As far as I know this old Portege is not supported for Win8 and Toshiba doesn't offer any Win8 driver, tool or utility, especially not some BIOS version designed to help with Win8 installation.

Hi,

I got a used Protege R500 and installed Windows7 Professional. But I don't have sound. If I open music, I see the green bar on the volume control in the tray rising and falling. So it plays sound but it doesn't get it out of the speakers or the headphone.

Plugging in the headphone is also well recognized by Win7. It also records sound. I tested in Skype, others can hear me, but I can't hear them. In the device manager the audio is listed with "Realtech High Definition Audio (With EC)". There is only one device in Device Manager which is not recognized (Unknown Device).

Can you help me please? I want also to use my new laptop to listen to music..

Is possible?? If yes, how procesor can i used?

A:Portege R500 - Upgrade procesor and RAM

hi RoboS,
first of all the modell number is needed to check which hardware is in the machine.

to upgrade ram: easy - there should be a door marked with a ram-symbol on the bottom of the machine. open up and insert more memory
make sure that the system is powerless: remove ac-adapter and battery!
make also sure that the new ram modules meets the specifications.

upgrade the cpu: much more difficult and toshiba dont support this upgrade...
search for your modeltype with a bigger cpu and check if it has a socket (should be), this cpu should go together with your machine...

but remember: double the ram isnt that expensive than upgrade cpu and you have more fun with a bigger amount auf ram than a bit faster cpu....

The sound volume on my R500 (R500-11c to be exact) is ridiculously low. Only with volume maxed out (100) and using headphones do I hear anything at all, and even then it's way too low to be useful. I can just make out the test sounds in the left and then right earphone when using the test sound found at Control Panel -> Sound -> Speakers (there are no Headphones to be selected) -> Properties -> Advanced -> Test. Unplugging the headphones I hear nothing from the speakers, due to the (very low) sounds made by the fan and HDD. Playing music (with headphones) I can just make out that sounds are being produced, but I can't even make out what is playing.

I've tested the things mentioned in the "Satellite 5105-S901 Sound is very low (even on max volume) using supplied Toshiba driver" thread with no success (including Loudness Equalization).

I'm running Vista Business 32bit, and have tried the driver_audio_realtek26117B.exe, driver_audio_realtek_TC00157600B.exe, and Vista_Win7_R243_x86.exe driver files, and also used the util_mute_off_25847B.exe utility.

Enabling mute makes the already faint sounds go completely silent, so I don't think it's a mute issue.

Jack detection does work, I can see that in the Realtek HD Audio Manager program. Using that program's sound test (Speaker Configuration) I have to go to a completely silent room, and even then I only hear something in the right earphone.

A:Very low sound volume on Portege R500

Hi

According to your message, you have already tried to increase the volume using all possible options?
Did you try to increase the volume in control panel -> Realtek HD audio manager??
Check this?

You have also tried to update the Realtek sound driver?.
Did you use the one from the Realtek page directly?
Check this!

If this will not help, you could test the notebook with new recovered system?

But if this will not improve the volume, then this could be a hardware problem?

Recently I acquired a 2008 vintage Toshiba R500-11Z ultraportable laptop. It needed a new keyboard since most of the keys were dead, so I purchased a new replacement (exact same keyboard, from an eBay seller). I also decided to give it a new lease of life by installing a solid-state drive. The old keyboard was secured to the chassis with some sort of sticky back plastic which wasn't reusable, so for the new keyboard I used some strong double sided tape. Before screwing the plastic undercarriage back on I installed Windows 7, with the undercarriage loosely fitted in place. Windows install completed and all looked good. After screwing in the undercarriage I discovered that the optical drive ?its original "open-top" Mat****a DVD-RAM UJ-844S? would not read discs; it just makes a noise 3 times but does not then spin up as it would normally. Drive is visible in both Explorer and Device Manager.

After unscrewing the undercarriage, reseating the optical drive, and rescrewing a number of times I haven't been able to get the optical drive to read any discs. What I have established is that the disc must be catching on the ceiling, thus signalling the drive to not spin up; by leaving the screws off that side of the undercarriage allowed me to create a gap so there is more room between the optical drive and the ceiling of the laptop. Discs will then spin up and Windows autoplay will open them. What I can't work out is what has changed in terms of how the drive is mounted an... Read more

A:Portege R500- after hardware upgrade ODD will not read

Just to say after a lot of head scratching I worked out the problem. I'd made a mistake in reattaching the metal mounting clip to the back of the optical drive.

I'd screwed the clip on on the outside of the orange coloured connector when it needed to be on the inside (between the optical drive and the orange connector). It seems this must have pushed the drive out of place just enough to stop it from working properly.

I have bought a new hard drive (SSD) for my R500-11Z and I have put it in an enclosure with USB cable prior to installation - I want to be able to format the drive and create a clean copy of Windows XP before taking out my existing hard drive.

I have been looking for ways to use the recovery disk and it LOOKS like it should be possible... EXCEPT...

I have worked out that on the recovery disk there is a executable called recoUNPACK in the Tools folder, which should in theory restore the contents of the disk to the hard drive. However, because the new hard drive is plugged into my existing XP set up it gets a folder called System Volume Information written to it. The presence of this folder causes the recoUNPACK to fail. It gets to 59% each time and then throws the error - System Volume Information already exists.

Anyone suggesting deletion of the folder should consider their knowledge of XP - there is no way to do this, ask Mr Google if you don't believe me. I have also tried this with full write permissions of this folder so that, in theory, recoUNPACK could overwrite...

I would be very grateful if anyone knows a way of 'forcing' overwrite of the System Volume Inofrmation folder or another way of 'restoring' the recovery disk to my new hard drive (other than taking the laptop apart and physically replacing the drive!).

I have looked at various options for setting up a bootable USB disk, but as I'm going to fit it within my laptop I don't want to run any odd ver... Read more

Hmm? did you use the right path and right partition/volume letter?

As far as I know the command should show something like that:

+recounpack.exe d:\imagename.tpa z: /f+

The same question is related to fingerprint system.
What wrong with fingerprint sensor?

The Toshiba driver page provides the Intel Chipset Utility v9.1.1.1015
This driver/software is compatible with Mobile Intel 945GMS express chipset.

Also the driver from Intel page could be installed:

Hi

I have a Portege R500 with Windows XP.
I have now installed a Windows 7 version without activation to see if all drivers work (Windows 8 is not supported as far as I know).

All looks good and Windows is telling me now as expected it is not genuine and offers me to buy the license, but when I go to MS it fails (it seems MS does not sell Windows 7 anymore).

Does Toshiba sell OEM licenses for Windows 7 for a R500 ?

It would be a shame to throw it away because of that.

Thank you
Markus

A:Portege R500 - Does Toshiba sell OEM licenses for Windows 7

Toshiba offers notebooks with preinstalled recovery image and offered version is activated. With other words when you buy notebook you buy also valid licence for preinstalled OS version.

Toshiba supports newer operating systems too. As you can see on Toshiba download page you can find drivers, tools and utilities for Win7 64bit and use them after Win7 installation.

Unfortunately Toshiba doesn't offer licence for it. All you must do it to obtain Win7 64bit with valid licence.

So I have a Toshiba Portege r500 with no H/d & a second one for parts. When I went to take the H/D and pop it in I realized the H/D hook-up cables are different. The "parts laptop" has a "FMUSH1" cable connecting it to the sata drive. The newer Portege has a cable labeled " FMUPH2" (I'm assuming for an SSD?)

My Question is....Can easily swap them somehow or is there an adapter/converter possibly?

A:Fmuph2 HDD Cable Issue (Toshiba Portege R500)

So with more research I'm thinking I have a ZIF Tape (Cable) that previously connected to a 1.8 SSD which I now need to convert to a 2.5 sata connection.
I ordered a 24-Pin ZIF to SATA Adapter Connector Card off eBay. It comes with its own "ribbon" (Tape/cable whatever) as shown in the pic. Will I need to replace the ZIF from my mobo with it? or is it simply in case "you" need it?
Also just wondering could I have swapped out the sata ribbon (Fmush1) with the ZIF ribbon (Fmuph2) where they connect to the MoBo instead? (It's extremely difficult to get to on this model and the "clips" seem very fragile so I avoided attempting it)

I have a Porterge R500 with Windows Vista from my work.

I was going on a trip so I got myself an extra battery.
Before taking the airplane everything worked fine. Both batteries worked and they were fully charged.

After I entered the airplane, out of the blue, the laptop didn't not start with neither of the two batteries (original both of them).

When I landed I connected it to the ac plug in, and it started. It says the battery is charging (70% and 80% respectively) but none of them seem to work because if I remove the plug in, the laptop shuts down.

When it is connected, the battery light does a sort of blinking (every now and then) but I don't understand what is the problem at all because the computer is working, I have two batteries going sort of dead at the same moment and even when they are charged according to the computer, they don't deliver the power.

Any hints?

Very strange that both batteries don?t work after you entered the airplane.
To be honest I?m not the expert on this area but maybe the radiation while checking the bags and personal items could affect the batteries.

However, fact is that notebook does not work using the batteries. I would recommend you to purchase another battery.

The detailed spec pdf for the models that come with a normal hdd say 9.5mm height which is 2.5" correct? Also, I read in a review that these use 2.5" hdd so I assume this is correct, but I want to be sure.

What I want to know is will the R500-S5007V that comes with an SSD drive accept a normal 2.5" hard drive also? The detailed spec pdf for this model says the SSD is 3mm height. But since they are all R500 laptops, wouldn't a normal 2.5" hdd fit as well? If so, could it possibly require modification or should I be able to just remove the SSD and install a 2.5" drive?

What I don't get is why all of the SSD's I find at Newegg or elsewhere are the same dimensions as other 2.5" hdd's (9.5mm height), but the one that comes in the R500-S5007V says 3mm height. Is this an error? If it really is 3mm, would it even be useful in another application?

I called Toshiba and tried to ask them, but all the information he had was what is on the website. He didn't know what an SSD was anyway. So it would be good if someone here could help me with this. Thanks.

The notebook supports definitely the USB 2.0 ports.
I guess this message could appear due to different reasons: for example USB device malfunction.
Also the USB port problem could be responsible for such error message.

Therefore as first workaround I recommend you to remove the USB hubs and controllers from device manager list.
Open device manager, search for USB hubs and controllers and uninstall the driver.
Then reboot the notebook

Usually system will start to recognize the USB devices.

When I tried to update the driver it shows that "This device cannot start. (Code 10)".

Please guide me to resolve this problem.

A:Portege M600- No audio outout device is installed.

I would try:

1) Update the BIOS and set it to the default settings.
2) Uninstall and reinstall the sound drivers. Look for updated drivers on the Toshiba Website.

I just installed a Sound Blaster X-Fi Titianium PCI express and I'm getting an error running some software such as Console. I've searched all over and seen this problem multiple times but haven't found a solution that works for me. Most of the threads I've found are at least 6 months old so I would think someone would have found a solution.
My windows 7 is a relative clean version (installed last week). I previously had an older X-Fi sound card but I followed all the instructions to properly remove it. Removed all software via Windows 7, deleted all the drivers, and made sure all the old folders were deleted before installing the new card. Now, the sound card works in that I get audio but the quality is not good. The correct device is showing under device manager but none of the Creative software such as Console are working. Wave Studio does work but I don't think its linked directly to the card. The error I am getting is "The Audio Device Supported By This Application Is Not Detected. The Application Will Exit". I have uninstalled and reinstalled several times. I used the Auto Update Feature, installed the latest drivers directly from Creative's website, ect.. No luck. Has anyone found a solution to this? There are a lot of threads from last year on this exact problem but no solutions. Please advise.

I have just acquired a R500.
When typing, the cursor often skips back a line or back several spaces.
It is an involuntary yip, and I do not think it is a human keyboard error.

How can I stop this? Any advice?

Hi

Disable the touchpad while typing. You can do that by pressing the Fn + F9 key combination.
I had the same problem and it was caused by touching the touchpad surface while typing?.

I have a stock standard HP Probook 4530s that I've had since new, and all of a sudden in the last month it comes up with this error on bootup "This wireless module is not supported so has been disabled 702". I haven't changed a thing since I've owned this laptop so I'm using the wireless card HP put in. I can occcasionally get around it (restarting numerous times) but it's very frustrating, especially when I want to do something quickly and I have to plan the restart, disconnect the battery etc game. Is there a solution? I have been searching for a solution. From what I understand there's an error with the BIOS and the wireless card is not on the whitelist. Which is ridiculous given that this is what came with the laptop!!! Any ideas or suggestions?

Hi all,

I have recently bought an R830 1HD which has windows 7 as its OS.
I have some old external hard drives that were formatted on windows vista.

When i try to use them on my new computer it says "Target device not found"
I phoned the support for the external hardrive who said this is an incompatability issue and that I would need to re format the external hard drives (and hence lose everything on them unless I copied them onto a compatible hard drive).
Is this true?

Rather than go through the hassle of copying all the data onto another hardrive is there a way of making my new computer compatible with the external hard drive?

Your help is much appreciated.

Cheers,

Jason

A:Portege R830 - external HDD error - "Target device not found"

I have one old external HDD with saved pictures on it and I use it since years with WXP, Vista, Win7 and now with Win8 too. There is no problem at all so I don?t understand what could be wrong with your HDD.

Have you similar problems using other external devices connected to your Portege notebook?

Go to your control panel, then open up "sounds and audio devices".

Next, go to the "Audio" tab, and make sure the "sound playback" option is set to your new sound card.

Ok, my sound just stopped working out of nowhere,

my default volume panel on the taskbar had vanished and the icon for my "creative" volume panel was still there, but when i clicked on it a message came up "there is no supported audio device available. you need to close the application. click OK to close the application now."

So i did some reading and some people suggested i clear my drivers and reinstall.

I installed my motherboard chipset and audio drivers,

now after doing this when i start up a small box with a yellow triangle and exclamation point in it appears. its labeled "Volume panel". my sound returned for a few days but has cut out again after i turned my comp off. when i click on my Creative volume control i get a similar error message thats says "the current audio device is not supported by the application, do you want to select another audio device now" clicking yes brings up a box with one item in the drop down menu "Follow window default".

I could really use some help trying to figure out what is wrong with my computer. i guess i could try and clear my drivers and reinstall them again. but will the problem just come back in a few days again? what could be causing this???

Hi
I have a new Dell XPS 13 9360 which is great.
One minor irritation is that I am unable to use any equalisation with my bluetooth headphones so they sound very flat.  With earphones that are plugged in, Maxx Audio Pro works brilliantly.
Please see screenshots for details. Any guidance would be very much appreciated!
Many thanks

Is this just the sound driver what is missing and how can i reinstall this?

Who knows what have you done with preinstalled stuff. THotkey has nothing to do with ?old programmes for card readers? but it is very important Toshiba tool.

At first let us know what the status of sound card in device manager is. Is sound card installed and listed properly?

An AntiSpy program messed up my sound, now I get "No Audio Output Device" installed. I'm running Vista Home Premium on a Dell E521 desktop. The audio is integrated (SigmaTel Hi Definition 6.10.0.5343). I've removed the offending program, I've uninstalled/re-installed the driver, I've downloaded & installed the driver from the company, (the Device Manager says the driver is working fine), I've checked the Bios and the audio is ON, I've installed the latest MS Updates for Vista (including KB 929685 that was a 'cure'), I went into MS config and made sure that Windows Audio is ON. I've even put it into "Sleep" mode for an hour as someone suggested as a miracle cure.
Nothing Works!! I don't think the card is broken b/c the computer is only 3 months old!
ANY SUGGESTIONS??????

I'm trying to fix an hp pavillion dv6704nr laptop running windows vista home premium. It has the little red x on the speaker in the lower right hand corner. The owner said it has been there for some months. I have tried downloading the current audio drivers for the computer but every time I try to install the driver, I get an error that says the device couldn't be found.

The first time i restarted the computer, after the driver installation failed, the audio came back and worked fine, until I had to restart the computer. Now I keep getting the same error and nothing i have found so far online has helped.

There are no yellow triangles in the device manager and the device list isn't showing the category for "sound, video and gaming etc." at all.

Please help. I did a search but the other threads didn't solve this problem for me.
Thanks in advance.
