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.

Hi all,

I went to turn on my laptop and it wouldn't turn on.

I have tried taking the power away completely and held the power button for 30 seconds before replacing battery and mains power to the machine.

Please help if you can.

Thanks in advance.

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:BSOD on Satellite L850


All drivers for your notebook model you can find on http://www.toshibamea.com/en/Download-Files

Your PSKG8V model is listed there. Maybe it sound stupid now but I don't know what the ?power driver? is. If your notebook was delivered with original preinstalled OS I recommend you to set BIOS to default settings and install original recovery image.
After doing this you can test functionality with ?factory settings?.

Post some feedback please.

Model Satellite L850-Y3110(PSKFWG-00F00C)
my laptop specs are i73630QM with 8gb DDR3 Ramand Raedon HD7670M 2Gb graphics in 64 bit Windows 10 pro.When i purchased it was installed with Win8.1 afterwards i manuallyt upgraded it to Win10.Everything was fine graphics is also ok.

From toshiba's website i found that my laptop is not up-gradable to Windows10. Anyway i have upgraded and there is no going back.
So my drivers are now auto updated with windows.

But to find drivers from my OEM's website i checked all toshiba's websites.But most of them does not recognize my model except this website.
In this site also i am not getting any drivers of Windows8.1.Only drivers of Windows 7 is available.

1)I would like to know where i can get these drivers.(Win 8.1)?

Please check with my model number before replying because i have spent many days for this.Again toshiba-india website provides only bios update drivers for my version.
2)So i would like to know whether other L850 model's drivers are compatible with my lap?

Now i will come to actual problem.
From intel's website i am aware that my laptop is having inbuilt graphics intel HD4000.
3)So where is it?
But nowhere in my laptop i can see this display adaptor.I looked into bios also to see whether it is disabled in bios.
And i found that there is no tab in bios regarding display/graphics.

I tried all latest drivers from intel for HD4000 and drivers from AMD for Redon7670M.

As my Hard Disk is broken, how can I install a new OS on the new hard drive? As I boot with my cd/dvd optical drive the installation of windows won't start! I tried toinstall Ubuntu on another Hard disk and there's non problem. The problem is only trying the installation of windows. Can someone help me? Tank you

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.

best regards

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:


Or it might send you to Windows, as in:


However you land there, type this:

I have a Toshiba laptop Model: Satellite M35X-S149 P/N: PSA72U-00T00U.

The problem I am having is that the LCD screen has turned white as though only the backlight is functioning. If I plug a monitor into the external VGA port I can get a display on the external monitor.

Has the LCD gone bad or is there something else I can check before shelling out 700+ dollars?

I am computer literate and a Avionics Tech so getting into the guts of the computer won't be an issue.

Thanks in-advance.

Alright so this is what happened. I don't know if these two problems are in sync, but I'll tell you guys about it anyways.

I was working on an autocad project while installing adobe audition. Once installed, I opened it. After a few seconds, it gave me the blue screen of death stating something about IRQ error. I rebooted the pc and it was fine and started up normally. I went home with the laptop and started working on the project again. My PC was in hibernation for a few hours today as well. While working on autocad again, my keyboard stopped responding. I tried to ctrl + alt + del, but it would not detect it. I was connected to IRC and when I typed something, nothing was showing up. No letters. My mouse however still worked. I closed out the apps I was in after saving and then rebooted the PC through start menu. After it shut down, it never came back on. I kept on pressing the power button but it is getting no response. The AC power cord is still working because the two blue lights are still on, however the power button is not working. Now I don't know if this has something to do with the IRQ error earlier, but it won't start up now.

It's a toshiba laptop satellite. I don't remember the exact model since i'm not at home right now. My warranty is gone now (just ended in february) so I tried to open the back to see if I can spot anything. I removed all the screws but it won't pop out. I think there is something still holding it down... Read more

Greetings to all ....
My wife and I have purchased a Toshiba Satellite Pro C870D for our daughter. Because our daughter is not computer savvy, I have installed the applications she uses and have setup the internet connections etc etc.
The problem we have, as we are not familiar with Win 8 or laptops, is that this new laptop appears to have no method for "Shutdown" or "Restart". 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. As I understand computers, it is not very good to simply hit the on/off switch!
So, I am stuck with this problem and seek ideas, assistance or solutions.
Thanks to all who respond ....

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.

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%.

Hi I'm back. I have been at the library most of the day when I received your reply. Thanks for the help. I am on my way home to work on my desktop. I have followed most of your same instructions on my laptop as well and here are those results:

Hi rumdup,

I've started a new thread for the laptop to keep it separate.

Did you run Ewido on this as well? If so, please post the results if you have them.


Download the attached laptop.zip file to your desktop. Do not run it yet.

Next, click Start > Control Panel > Add/Remove ProgramsIn the list of installed software, look for PuritySCAN By OIN, OuterInfo, OIN Snowballwars or similar
If you find it:
Click on it and click Remove.
Reboot and delete the folder C:\Program Files\PurityScan and also delete the folders of any of the programs you found in the Add/Remove panel. These would be located in C:\Program Files.
if not:
Download and run the Oiuninstaller
There is a tutorial for the uninstaller available
When the uninstaller is done, reboot and delete the folder C:\Program Files\PurityScan (if it's still there)


Double click on the laptop.zip folder, then double click on the .reg file within. Click yes to allow it to merge into your registry.


Please go to Start>Run type msconfig press Enter and enable all startups by selecting Normal Startup - Load all Device Drivers and Services, click Apply.


Reboot your system.


This time I'd like to use a different online scanner:

I have Verizon Fios internet service. When I put in my wep key it lets me put 10 digits in, but when I hit enter and watch it try to connect, I notice (and a Verizon gotoassist rep) it turns into 8 keys. I get on, but get knocked off often. I always thought it was Verizon, now I think it's my Toshiba laptop. Recently purchased a ASUS netbook and it takes the full 10 digits and it never disconnects. My toshiba will only allow me to get on the internet a couple of feet away. My netbook can get on all over my townhome, including upstairs. What is going on? How can I fix my computer to accept 10 digits? Why do I always get unlimited service on toshiba when I move the computer, yet the signal strength is ALWAYS strong? Please help!

Look at channel you are on via router. If on channels 1 or 11 - try changing channel to 5 or 4..............

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.
