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

Hello everyone

Please i need help

Preferred Solution: Re: Satellite L850-1HP - windows 8.1 activation

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: 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 guys,

I have a Toshiba L850-1K1 Notebook preinstalled Windows 8. I just wanted on a partition install ubuntu, but suddenly the installation was canceled (i dont know why), and than, when i wanted to restart windows 8, it wasnt gone.

A:How to reinstall Windows 8 on my Satellite L850-1K1?

Original Windows version cannot be downloaded. You have made mistake that you didn't create recovery media (USB or DVD) before you have started to make experiments.

Best option for you is to order original recovery disc for this notebook model.
You can do this under https://backupmedia.toshiba.eu/landing.aspx

Hi everybody, my Satellite L850 1L1 is doing strange things after updating Windows 8.1 to Windows 10. My start-menu is no longer available (now I use Classic Shell). Even after going through every advice from the Internet, it is still not working. I also have a new Battery inside now, but every setting of my Eco-mode is affecting a blackscreen after a while. It is automatically switching into eco-mode but I turned it "off" in every setting. The Win10 support says it is because the L850 1L1 is not ready for Win10. Is there a possibility to get that system running again? Is there a driver for Satelite L850 1L1 for Windows 10 or is it possible to get one in between the next weeks / months? Thank you

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..

Hi everybody,
I recently bought a second-handed Satellite Pro L850-1P7 in mint condition and upgraded it to windows 10.
Unfortunately there is a problem with the wifi (that I don't know if it appeared in the previous windows 8.1 installation).
When I press to connect to one of the available wifi networks, it fails every time and returns "can't connect to this network", regardless the signal shown (1/4 - 4/4) UNLESS I am really close to the wifi router.
The wifi module is a Qualcomm Atheros AR946x adapter (AR5B22), and I updated the driver to the latest one with no luck. I also tried some older driver versions. No luck either.
I chose "Maximum Performance" under "Wireless Adapter settings", and deselected the "allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" box under driver's Power Management tab.
Guess what? nothing happened. It still cannot connect to the wifi networks unless the laptop is close to the router.
My guess was that it is either a driver issue, or a malfunctioning wifi module, until I booted the laptop in Linux and everything worked absolutely fine. It connected to the wifi network in less than a second. So it must be a driver issue, or a "bad" setting.
Any idea would be appreciated.
Thank you!

Hello,

recently I've acquired a new laptop, a Satellite L850-1P9.

The first week of usage the laptop never shown ant signs of problems, but in the last 3 days I'm getting a BSOD that shuts down the laptop.

Before the shut down I was able so write down in a paper something like this "athwx_8". I've read that this kind of error is related to software you may have installed.

The software that I'm using now is the same i was using on my old laptop, so it may be something related to driver software.

Here is a link from what the windows event visualizer could capture: [Errors detected|http://sdrv.ms/1a0q3e6]

A:Satellite L850-1P9 - Windows 8 critical Error athwx***

Hi

I would recommend you to reset the notebook back to factory settings.
Let?s hope it?s just an software issue which could be solved by system recovery.

Do know how to do that?
If not, check this very helpful Toshiba document:

[Windows 8 Recovery & Repair|http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/kb0/TSB2A03ES0000R01.htm]

You should choose the option *?Reset your PC?*.
This would remove everything and reinstall Windows option permanently removes your personal files and apps from the PC and returns Windows 8 to its original state. That original state is either a clean install of Windows 8, or the OEM factory default configuration, depending on the media used for the operation.

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated

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.

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,

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.

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.

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 have a client with a refurbished L850 which is currently running Windows 8.0. I ran the upgrade advisor and it found some issues with 8.1 and was wondering if anyone had upgraded and what their experience was like? 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.

[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.

How do I get my Windows 8 single language product key?
Is anyone got any idea ?

A:Satellite L850 - how to get Win8 product key?

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.

My question is: why do you want to have this key?

Hi everyone,

I'm using my Satellite Pro L850-1NR for school. I go to a technical school for information technology, and we use windows 8. The Problem is that *Windows 7 is pre-installed* on my Laptop and at home every PC works with Windows 7.

When you buy a Satellite Pro L850-1NR, you get two *Windows 8 installation CDs*, so I want to do a *dualboot Windows 7 and Windows 8*. I know how to create a new volume on my hard disk, but when I start the first disk, the only option is to delete Windows 7 and install Windows 8.

Is it possible to dualboot this and if it's possible, what shall I do? ?:|

A:Satellite Pro L850-1NR - dualboot Win7 / Win8

Hi

The Win 7 was preinstalled on your notebook. The Win 8 was supplied on the DVD disks.

In both cases; Win 7 and Win 8 is part of the Toshiba image.
Toshiba image is a package containing all drivers, tools and utilities.

It?s not possible to keep the Win 7 on the HDD and to install additional Win 8 using the supplied recovery disk.
Why? Because this is not clean Win 8 system but as mentioned; its image.

But generally its possible to have an dual boot system (Win 8 and Win 7). The boot menu will be created automatically which will allow you to choose between Win 7 and Win 8 OS.

You need to create simply new partition within the Win 7 system.
Then you have to boot from clean MS Win 8 disk and could install the Win 8 on the new created partition.

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 guys

please can some help.

I have recently bought a Sat Pro L850-1DV laptop of the following spec

core-i5 2.5Ghz
8GB RAM
WIN7 64bit with SP1
video driver = 8.15.10.2752
Directx version 11.0

The problem is that every time i insert a USB device, the screen goes blank. I then have to move the
mouse or tap a key to bring back the screen..... it is really annoying.

Please can someone help as to why this happens and kindly suggest a fix.

Thanks

A:Satellite Pro L850-1DV - screen goes blank upon USB insertion

Hmmm..... never heard about it. Does it happen when you connect any kind of external device using USB port? I just want to know if this is some kind of ?general problem?.

Do you use original preinstalled Win7 or your own version?

I'm running the Satillite Pro L850 PSKG9A-009001, that is just over 3 months out of the box, and at first audio ran smoothly when headphones were plugged in. A few weeks ago that changed, and now when I plug in my headphones I only get audio through the R headphone. I have tried different pairs of headphones with the same result. When I use the headphones in other devices they work perfectly. Importantly audio plays in stereo through the laptop speakers when there are no headphones connected.

I have tried reinstalling the realtek audio drivers from the included cd, but am unable to find and driver updates on the toshiba website. I have also checked to make sure this isn't a settings issue, and am unable to find a cause. I really would like to be able to hear audio from both channels, and after trying everything I can think of and isolating the issue to just the audio jack; have a feeling there might be a dry solder issue on the audio out jack.

But I thought I would open up the issue to see if anyone else has any ideas I haven't thought of yet, that might quickly fix the issue, before I look the assumed long process of submitting a warranty claim.

A:Satellite Pro L850 plays audio through 1 headphone only

I agree with you. This issue can be related to audio out port, especially if there is no problem with internal speakers and if they are working properly.
Let?s see what other people will post about that but what you can do at the moment is to contact nearest Toshiba service provider, explain the situation and ask for help.

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.

I have a Toshiba Satellite model L850-1JR and I have the following problem:
From time to time, when you turn on the PC and spend a few minutes, the screen is completely black.
It seems that the operating system still works and I can not recover it. I happen to both with a battery and connected to the NETWORK.
Disconnect the PC by pressing the power button for a few seconds, remove the power cord and wait a few minutes. I put the cable back and proceed to start it, but it still does not work. The power LEDs if they work and the pc seems to start perfectly but without seeing anything.
Occasionally, when this happens, when the screen is moved the PC recovers and other times until it does not spend enough hours does not turn on the screen again.
Could you tell me what may be happening and / or how to solve this problem?
Thank you very much
