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

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


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.

>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

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:toshiba nb 250 laptop

What did you do which you think might have deleted Win7?

You can determine if Win7 is still on there by booting into Startup Repair via System Recovery Options.
If they won't run via F8 Advanced Boot Options then Option 2 in the blue link shows how to run them from bootable Win7 installer which can be written to flash stick from Step 5 of Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Boot. Those steps also show everything that can be done to save unbootable Win7.

If Win7 is not reparable then everything you need is here to Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 the licensed version given on the COA sticker on bottom of laptop, or under battery.

if any1 has any ideas pls get bk to me thank PX

A:toshiba laptop

I believe that there is a keypress which will allow you to select boot from cd try F12 or F10.

If you can read the writing at boot up it should tell you the keypress for bootdevice select or to enter setup. usually F2 DEL for setup and one of the high Fn keys for bootdevice select.

At winlogon screen try holding down CTRL+ALT and then hit the DEL key twice, type in Administrator and try to log on with blank password,

if you can then save your data, delete your non working account, perform a full maintainance on your system including a defrag and then create yourself a new account. restart and see if it works.

Hi -

Does your laptop have an Internet Security Suite like NIS, N360, KIS, McAfee installed? If so that would be the likely problem.

The product manufacturer's removal tool must be used to remove it from your system. Let us know which one & we'll find the removal tool if you cannot.

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).

Okay, so what model is it? That's my first real question.

And if you haven't tried already, unplug it from the power cord, remove and reinsert the battery, then plug it in and try to turn it on. If that doesn't work, then the model number would be useful.

Or maybe this is a function that Toshiba have introduced?? I have discovered that the usual "Start" button is no longer built into Win 8 and to get the "desktop" I must click the "M/soft key" on the keyboard.

We then get a message saying this has to be changed through the Toshiba Power Management. We still try to change it in the microsoft way, and the boxes are all grayed out so we can't click on them to change at all. So then we go to the Toshiba Power Management under the control panel, and we don't see anywhere where we can change the settings. Anyone know where we can change the settings?

I copied the missing (the file that it said was missing) driver from my computer and put it in the place that it originally was.

Can you give us the full model number please? Also, what percentage are you hovering at? If you're in the 92-100% range, the battery will not charge as to prolong its life. If you drain it under that threshold, it will charge to 100%.

I am trying to recover / recover data from a neighbors' laptop. It will not boot normally or into safe mode. Using Hiren's Boot Disk I was able to recover some of the needed info from the system, but not all that is usually desired to diagnose a BSOD. It's OK if you tell me there is not enough data to diagnose the cause of the problem...

Symptoms -

Laptop was reported as 'broken'. When I tried to boot it, I was greeted with a continuous beeping that turned out to be from a stuck key(s). The keyboard was removed and replaced with an external keyboard / mouse. When trying to boot to Vista, system accepts log in, runs a little (startup stuff I believe) then BSODs. When I attempt to boot into safe mode, the system starts to load (I see the messages go by), it runs the crcdisk for a bit and then reboots and BSOD's. Maybe the disk is bad...

What I know or think I know:
OS? Vista - Spec sheet says it was shipped with Vista Home Premium
x86 (32-bit) or x64 ? Spec sheet says it was shipped with x86, but I am seeing x64 files - Processor is an AMD Turion 64
What was original installed OS on system? Spec sheet says it was shipped with Vista Home Premium, but I know she had the hard drive replaced twice.
Is the OS an OEM version (came pre-installed on system) or full retail version (YOU purchased it from retailer)? I found a product key on the system that indicates OEM
Age of system (hardware)? unknown - oldest file date in C: is 2006-09-18
Age of OS installation ... Read more

At this point I would suggest that you test the hard drive using the manufacturer diagnostics.
