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.)

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

Hello,
I have a Toshiba Satellite L850-1j9 (PSKG8E-02D00KCE) working with i7-3630QM and a AMD Radeon HD 7670M.
The problem is, I'm not able to install the Display Driver from AMD. When I try to install the software and drivers this problem appears: https://youtu.be/AOiPq8WVz_M
The first time this happen I was using Win 10. I did the update to win 10 one month ago and everything was ok until 4 days ago. I was working with my laptop with a external screen connected by HDMI and suddenly the screen started flashing with some green lines and a black backgroud (something as you can see in the video).
I saw in internet that some people had problems doing the update to wion10 so I installed again windows 8 to see if was something related with win10 but the problem persists.
I tried install the GPU from the intel CPU, a Intel 4000HD graphic card, but is not possible use it as a main GPU. I got this problem: "This device is not working properly because Windows cannot load the drivers required for this device. (Code 31)"
I need help please to understand what can I do to fix this problem. I took a look through internet and until now I did find any solution that could fix my problem.
Thanks for your help.

Please help

I purchased 2 of these laptops for my boys for high school. They came loaded with Windows 7 although I received an offer to update to Windows 8 for a special price which I did.

In the process of doing this it instructed me that there were some conflicts with some programs that I had to uninstall and then reinstall afterwards.

The programs I had to delete were:
Toshiba Disc Creator
Toshiba Face Recognition
Toshiba Health Monitor
Intel USB 3.0
Extensible Host Control Driver
Toshiba LAN Indicator
Toshiba Recovery Media Creator

Where do I find these programs to download? I did look up Toshiba and entered the computer model but it didn't recognise the last part of the model (PSK DLA).
I just want to make sure I am downloading the correct programs again.

I am also now having a problem with playing videos after downloading WIndows 8. I can hear the sound but I don't get the picture. This is also happening on my HP laptop. I am using the Radeon Graphics AMD (sorry, I know this is going to show that I have a computer with no idea).

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

A:Satellite L850 PSKDLA: Need Toshiba tools which were removed before Win 8 upgrade

Hi

All Windows 8 drivers are available on Toshiba EU driver page.
If some tools are missing then this means that such tools don?t exist for Win 8 at this time.

Regarding:
>Toshiba Recovery Media Creator
This is only a part of Toshiba image. The recovery disk creator creates recovery image from the system preinstalled by Toshiba. If you upgraded the system to Win 8, you will need to use another tools to create an system image.


Here also a nice documentation - Windows 8 Upgrade - Notes and Restrictions
http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/kb0/TSB2A03EL0000R02.htm

By the way: Some drivers for Win 7 are compatible with Win 8
So you can also install the Intel USB 3.0 driver which was released for Win 7 on Windows 8 preinstalled notebook.

I wonder if there are any Techheads out there looking for a challenge?

I have a new Toshiba LCD HDTV that I want to use as the primary and only monitor for my Toshiba Satellite laptop.

I want to eliminate the laptops screen altogether.

I would like to know if there exists a connector or some other way to connect my laptops ribbon cable output to a VGA output and then to the HDTV via a VGA cable; or if there is a better way to go?

The screen on this 4year old laptop got cracked so I have to spend at least $75.00 for parts alone and if I go that way I might as well buy another laptop, or use a desktop with a wireless keyboard which will cost more than $100.00 to set up.

Besides, this seems like a kinda cool fix so if anyone has any bright Ideas, please respond.

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.

A:HD Broken Satellite L850-1PD

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.

After doing this you can test functionality with ?factory settings?.

[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?

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 whic... Read more

A:toshiba laptop HELP!

It sounds like you are not able to boot now, so no need to worry about a reboot.

You tried "last good configuration"? That should probably work if the problem is caused by a Windows update.

Otherwise, suspects include memory or hard drive defects. You may have some diagnostics for those in your BIOS (Setup).

Hi All!

Okay My mom has an old toshiba laptop it's a P series it runs on windows XP and it is 'burnt slap up' to quote Jeff Foxworthy. When I turn the computer on it goes through the toshiba screen then goes to a black screen that says Windows did not start succesefully we are sorry for the inconvineince. It gives me five options

Safe mode
safe mode with networking
safe mode with command prompt
last known good configuration
or start windows normally

clicking on any of the safe mode options makes text appear on the screen over and over again scrolling down that says
Mlti(0)Disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\windows\system32\Drivers (then it gives me lots of different driver names depending on the line I read from

The other two just take my through the windows start up screen the comp goes to black and we go back through the process again.

So can anyone help?

TIA for any advice or help

Brandon

A:toshiba laptop need help :(

Somehow get ahold of an XP installation disk, and boot the computer to it. When you get to the prompt, press "R" to go into recovery mode. Once there, it should look like this:

C:\

Or it might send you to Windows, as in:

C:\Windows

However you land there, type this:

"chkdsk /r"

When it's done, remove the disk, reboot, and report results here.
