Preferred Solution: Tecra R850 - Screen is very faint

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.)

A:Blue screen on Tecra R850-147

you are preety cool. Send some screen shot and want to have answer for your problem but without any relevant info in your posting.

For instance it will be interesting to know which operating system do you use.
Do you use original OS that you got with your notebook?

When the BSOD is shown? At the stat-up or later when OS is loaded?
Have you tried to do anything about that?

A few more sentences about this issue can be very useful.

Hi.

Sorry for my english

A:Deleted all on my Tecra R850

I don't know which OS have you use and how your Tecra was configured but if possible reinstall original recovery image. If possible make HDD recovery installation as described on http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/kb0/HTD1303440001R01.htm

You can also use recovery disc if you have created it in the past. After doing this you will have clean preinstalled OS. Please check if this works for you. If not let us know.

On a Tecra R850, i can't use the FN key. I install all driver from toshiba and they does'nt work

Help

A:Tecra R850 with Windows WXP - can't use the FN key

Hello

The whole thing is a bit complicated with WXP and it is important to install all stuff in right installation order. After some basic drivers like chipset, display, sound you should install common modules at first and continue with Toshiba specific tools and utilities like controls, display device, power saver and so on.

Can you use any FN key combination or none of them is working?

Despite the claims that the R850 (with Radeon graphics) will do 4 displays, the most I can manage is 2. I'm trying to connect 2 external LCD monitors and still use notebook as another screen (3 in total).

I've done a lot of searching and although I can find plenty of people having the same problem, I cannot find an answer. I've tried updating the driver although that caused more problems than it solved. I am using W7.

Is it normal for the laptop to start loading Windows, on opening the lid?

Gentlemen,

in our company we use since 3 months the Toshiba Tecra notebooks.
The noise of the fan is for us to loud, you hear still the fan sitting one meter far away from the computer(no CPU load).

What helps a little bit was to change in the
Control-Center the Power-Options (Change Plan Settings -> Change advance power settings -> TOSHIBA Power Saver Settings -> Cooling Method *to* +Battery Optimized+).

But you still hear the fan which is running at 40%-45% when CPU/System temperature is 40 Celsius.

On of the guys gets last week also a new Toshiba R850 notebook, it is absolutely quiet.
The difference is that in his notebook a SSD is installed (instead of a HDD).

Could it be that the SDD make the fan noise difference? (we don't believe it).

Maybe someone has made the same experience and has a solution?

Thanks in advance

Hi,

I've a R840-16J. Last week I replaced the original Seagate Momentus 500GB 7200.4 HDD for a Plextor M5Pro 512GB SSD.

Yes it is true, now is much more quiet and...there's no vibration at all.

With the HDD I could feel all the computer vibrating in the palm of my hand!!!! No there's a quiet no vibration laptop!

And, believe it or not, one of the reasons to go the ssd way (well, not the main reason) was precisely the noise and vibration of the 7200 rpm internal hdd.

Hi.

I bought R850 with SSD.
The bad thing is that SSD 256gb installed is limited to SATA II with transfer up to 300/mb. I read that Sandy Bridge Supports SATA III which covers 600/mb.

Is somebody successfuly installed better SSD disk capable with SATA3?

I tried Sisoft Sandra and it reported that SSD SATA is II, the same for Motherboard. The HwINFO reported that chipset is capable with SATA 3. The Everest shows only SSD data with SATA 2.

Is the bios blocked for higher transfers ? I got 180mb/s read, 150 mb/write - which is 3x worse than normal SATA 3 256gb SSD harddisks.

Can anybody help me and tell - if it is matter of R850 bios ? or just only the old Toshiba SSD firmware ? if I buy better SSD with SATA3 - will it fully support higher speed ?

Good afternoon,

I am contacting you to realizaros a technical question regarding a Toshiba Tecra R850-151 model, part no PT525E 8b112605h and serial number.

I explain the scenario,

I have installed the laptop in a docking station, this one monitor, keyboard and mouse, I have installed the driver downloaded from your site for this laptop model and operating system and I have configured in the control panel Intel Graphics and Multimedia screen operating mode displays clones, both displays in 800x600 resolution and respect me as an administrator entering the operating mode of the screen and resolution, the bug is when I access the system with another user without administrative privileges, in this case the resolution does not respect me and sometimes not the operating mode of the screens.

I beg facilit?is a solution to this issue because it is essential that resolution on both screens, and the problem is that entering the system with another user respects me when I agreed resolution specically as administrator and if I change the theme of the screens or judgment as a user when I turn off the computer and turn on again you ignore the specically. By the way, I installed the OS twice now and the error persists and I installed the latest driver you have on the Web and previous to that as well and still the same.

A greeting.

Hello,

I am thinking of buying a Tecra R850-1D8 to connect it to a Samsung LS27A850DS monitor (2560x1440 px). Both the laptop and the monitor have a DisplayPort, and if I am not mistaken, the Tecra R850 uses the QM67 Express chipset which should support resolutions up to 2560x1600.

HOwever, the Tecra R850 specifications specify a maximum resolution of 2048 x 1536 for the external monitor, which puzzles me. Can anyone tell me if the R850 supports an external 2560x1440 display via DisplayPort?

After shutting down my Tecra R850-117 it will automatically restart after exactly 5 minutes.

This is unwanted behavior because it drains the battery while I'm not using the laptop and it could also damage the disk carrying it around while running...

Anyone knows what could cause this behavior and how I can stop it? The laptop is 6 months old and I'm only noticing this behavior since the last few weeks. I already noticed the battery would be drained after not using it for a few days (probably due to the same issue?), but never before noticed the unwanted restarts...

Hello,

The problem:
The battery is not being charged. The icon in System Tray says that the battery is "plugged in" but is "not charging", and "Consider changing your battery".

Also, the battery charging indicator is turned off

What happened:
I was using the computer on the battery. While using it, the message appeared that the battery is at critical 3% and computer suddenly shutdown (or went to sleep/hibernation). It is possible that the battery was empty since I was not charging it for 2 days. What was strange is that I did not get the message that the battery is at 7%, which is normal warning I get.
The next day, I plugged in the power cable, started computer. While booting, computer asked do I want to start in "Safe mode" or "Normal". I selected "Normal".

I don?t thins that there is some kind of software problem since you have already tried the factory reset and notebook recovery. In case of software problems, this procedure should solve all ?software related? issues. But it didn?t.

Good Day,

So I've had my R850 for a few years now and it's never given me a moments trouble. However, on Monday a silica bead managed find it's way in to the headphone jack. This happened due to an unnoticed broken silica sachet in my laptop backpack, and putting the laptop into the backpack, one of the beads was pushed into the jack.

The intruder was not noticed until I tried to plug in my headphones, unfortunately, forcing the bead in further. Be that as it may, I have managed to free the bead but I fear that there is now permanent damage. When I plug in the headphones, the speakers do not cut out. Audio does play through headphones, but the quality is very poor compared to what it used to be. So I am not sure if perhaps the bead short circuited something doing lasting damage, or if it just pushed a contact out of the way inside the jack, which is now not engaging with the headphone plug?

Is there anything I try in an effort to resolve this? I really can't afford huge costs to have the plug replaced.

Thanks,
Bruce.

Hey Guys I have a weird bug with a clients Toshiba Tecra R850 notebook with the port replicator. It's about 8months old.

Almost each morning when the client connects the laptop to the port replicator and powers on and boots to the Windows 7 desktop it doesn't create a "LAN" connection (external monitor & USB work through the port replicator though).

I have to get the client to power off the laptop, unplug it from the port replicator, unplug the power from the port replicator and then plug everything back in and turn the laptop back on.

Here is what I have ruled out so far:
Port replicator: I have replaced the port replicator with another users unit (exact same model), same issue.
Connected LAN directly: If I connect the LAN directly (i.e. completely remove the port replicator) I get no issues with LAN/Internet connection.

Here is the part number of the laptop and the dock:
Tecra R850: PT520A-01N003
Port Replicator II: PA3916A-1PRP

Any ideas? Could this be a faulty docking port on the laptop?

Kind Regards
Aaron

A:Tecra R850 - Port Replicator problem - no lan on startup

Don?t think its faulty docking port because in such case other Port Replicator ports would not function too?

As far as I know the DisplayPort on the left side complies to the V1.1a standard.
This means that the DispplayPort is compatible with DVI and HDMI standards so you can use an DisplayPort to DVI or HDMI adapter.

So you could use something like that:

Every new notebook is delivered with clean preinstalled OS and something like this should not happen. Later when you start to install updates or own applications it can happen that some background application ?blocks? the system.

In my opinion either you must check preinstalled stuff, processes that run in the background to see which one can be responsible for this, or you must install recovery image again and check how it works with ?factory settings?.

Hello,
I've got several Notebooks Tecra R850 and Tecra R950. Many users are complaining that they have Problems with UMTS and Toshiba Wireless Manager. Much time the Driver is hanging up and is only working right after a reboot.
I tested a external UMTS USB-Card, it worked without any Problems.
So it's very strange, that there are so much Notebook affected with this Problem. Is there any bug or Problem know?
How can I save the Problem? It's not comfortable!
Thank you and
best regards

Hello all

I need help with some issue:
My system says that I have 2,66GB RAM available for applications, services etc. The rest of it (between 1,1 and 1,3 GB RAM) is shared and reserved for the graphic card. I searched for a way to reduce it via BIOS (how it normally works), tried an update for the bios hopping that it would add this feature. But that wasn't the case.

I can't understand why Toshiba doesn't allow his customers to modifity this setting!
I can understand to put such a setting by default, but also giving an option for advanced users to modifiy this setting.

2,66GB RAM are not very much and I often need more than that... 500MB more RAM for sys would be really nice.
And 64bit OSs are currently not supported in our company.

So does anyone know a way to reduce the shared memory to e.g. 500MB?

My system specs:

Windows 7 Pro SP1 (32bit)
Modell: TECRA R850
Serialno.: 7B042670H
Partno.: PT525E-03E00KGR

Thanks in advanced for your answers!

A:Tecra R850 - How can I reduce the shared memory of the graphic card?

As far as I know shared memory works automatically and notebook user cannot control it.
It is nothing new and the same principle is on all Toshiba notebooks.

Sorry but there is nothing to do about it.

Hello

Is it possible to have the resolution in vga as 1280-1024 in external output or using the display port?
I have just seen the 1024 / 768 in the resolution 4/3 format

Maybe in the catalyst graphic card i have look in it without any success

All the resolution for output is in the 16/9 format

Thanks for any help

A:Tecra R850-1HU output VGA external in 1280-1024 (4/3 format)

Hi

The display port supports max 2560 x 1600 /32bit resolution.
But the available external resolution depends on the external monitor and the graphic card driver.
If both would support the favorite resolution (1024 / 768 ), you should be able to choose this?

I factory reset my laptop yesterday and every since the internal mic only works when nothing is plugging into the jack socket, including headphones without a mic and speakers. This was never a problem before the factory reset and i could plug headphones in to hear people and could use the mic to talk.. now i can only talk to people when nothing is plugged in meaning i have to hear people out of the laptop speakers..

Any ideas guys? I dont want to have to buy new headphones :/

Cheers

A:Tecra R850 - Internal mic doesn't work when headphones are plugged in

Check settings in sound properties (playback and recording devices).
Be sure Microphone is listed and enabled in recording devices.

Please check all this and send some feedback.

I have two Toshiba notebooks and everything works perfectly so I don't see some reason why it should not work on your Tecra too.

Hi. I got Tecra R850-520e for 4 months. from the begining I have the same problem - loud fan but no cpu load (about 2-4%) using win7 and win8 64bit

I tried to change windows profile to optimized or to power saver. but i still get the fan to noise. I upgrade the bios to 3.90. I re-checked windows 8. and still the fun ist loud. when no cpu is used.

Notebook is cool - so I don't know where is the problem. probably this is bad driver for ACPI or for temperature measuring. I tried to change the notebook position - and I found two metal plate on the bottom.

I think it is a temp measure sensors. when I rotate the notebook, and the plates are "on air", not touched by any material - the fan is going to slow down in minutes.

Could somebody tell if any speed fun will work ? or maybe Toshiba will update the bios or drivers for it finally ?
The comfort for business laptop is very bad. I have SDD - and this is limited too. I didn;t supposed that Toshiba will sell such a sh.....

Could anybody have some drivers or setting that will slow down the fan in windows 64bit ?

T.

Hi

You need to adjust the Windows Power Plane settings in order to improve the cooling system.

<Setting Method>
Changes in Operating System:
Control Panel --> Power Options --> Change plan settings --> Change advanced power settings --> TOSHIBA Power Saver Settings --> Cooling Method

Changes in Bios (Power Management):
Intel Turbo boost Technology

Changes in Operating System:
TOSHIBA HW Setup --> CPU Frequency mode


Try this settings:
Power plane (Toshiba power saver) Battery optimized
Intel Turbo Boost technology (BIOS) - Disable
CPU frequency ? Always low

From my experience this should reduce the noise.

Dear guys,

I have a Tecra R850 laptop (the graphic card is an AMD Radeon HD 6450M) with a PA3916A-1PRP port replicator.

I already have a 23" running at 1920x1080 connected via HDMI.
I would like to buy a 27" to run it at 2560 x 1440.

So my ideal configuration would be the 27" at 2560 as main monitor and the 23" at 1920 as second monitor. One monitor (the 23") has Display Port, DVI and VGA input, the other one has DVI, Display Port 1.2, Mini Display Port 1.2, HDMI.

Is it possible to connect them as I wish (I would love to avoid the use of VGA)?
Do I need other stuff (another docking for example) to accomplish that?

Any idea is good for me!

Thanks a lot

mario

Hi

Generally speaking you may be able to connect two external monitors at a time depending on your notebook model.

In user manual of Tecra R850 you can read that when the Toshiba HI-Speed Port Replicator II is connected to the notebook, you cannot use _notebook?s_ external RGB (VGA) port.
This port will not work.

Furthermore you cannot use port replicator?s HDMI port and Display Port at the same time.
The hi-speed port replicator II contains a slider which can be moved to choose either the HDMI port or Display Port.

So it seems that you have one option to connect two externa monitors: (VGA + HDMI)
one monitor to HDMI/Display port and other to VGA/RGB port (port replicator's RGB port)

Another option to connect two external monitors at the same time, you should use another docking solution like for example Dynadock U3. It supports an HDMI and DVI port which can be used at the same time.

Hey!

My Dell Inspiron 1100 is over 6 years old at this point, quite the dinosaur. However, I still have a bit of old data I would love to remove before it really bites the dust.

When I boot up the machine, usually the display is clear and bright. However, after no more than a minute the screen goes black and only a faint outline of the desktop remains. What is the problem and what do I need to do to solve it?

Thanks!

If there is an external monitor socket on it use a monitor to see the screen and then you can backup your data.

I have faint banding across the screen. It only shows up once into windows(Does not appear in BIOS at all... at least that i can tell) and shows across ALL applications. It only is really noticable on darker images like grays but not so much on black. The bands are of altrenating thickness (Small/Large Small/Large), but are not very wide at all. Thin little bands spaced out and altrenating like i said. They do not move, though if i bring up an image or a dialog box, it will create the same banding acorss those windows and stay with that window/dialog while the ones normally there pass over it.
I use HDMI to HDMI on a 40" Toshiba TV.
What i have done to trouble shoot is this so far:
Clean installed GPU Drivers. (Uninstall, restart, install, restart)
Changed to a different display that i know did not have banding. (Still had banding)
Change cables to a DVI to HDMI cable.(Still hand banding)

Hi,

I bought my Toshiba computer 3 days ago and my laptop screen flickers randomly especially when the computer is working (CPU load or WIFI data). The flickering is similar to this picture:
http://olavthoresen.com/pandora/flickering.JPG (I just found this picture on the net to illustrate the flickering - it is not my computer).

I am not sure if this is a hardware problem or something wrong with the graphics drivers. I have done the following to solve my problem:
- Reinstalled graphic drivers from Toshiba support
- Update BIOS to the newst version
- Full Recovery of the system (so it's back to factory state)
- Slightly knocking in the back of the screen

... and the issue still continues. It seems more and more that this is a HW problem as I can't find anyone with similar problem. What should I do?
