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.
Thanks

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.

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!

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.

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

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.

A:Help with Toshiba laptop

Considering you can't log in and load Windows because the password is unknown, and considering that computer is loaded with your neighbor's daughter's "debris" and unknown problems and would be impossible to clean out, your best option is to format the hard drive and do a fresh install of XP and start out with a pristine clean computer.

You'll need a full version XP CD. If you have a 98 CD or ME CD lying around, you can get away with using an upgrade version XP CD.

I got a brand new Toshiba Laptop about 2 months ago and Its really running slow even though I have done a lot of work on cleaning up and shutting off services that arent need and killing startup items. I also have been getting this blue screen of death outta nowhere I mean I can be doing anything and get this blue screen of death and then my laptop shuts down before I can grab the info. What I do have is Illegal Operation. If you guys can help, it would be great... I also ran Hijack This, hope you can tell me whats wrong or get me on track. Thanks

What would be the best CPU for my toshiba satelite L30-10x as the current one permanently runs at 100%.
curent processor is
intel celeron M CPU 440 @ 1.86GHz
 

A:Best CPU for Toshiba laptop

Other issues are affecting the processor load. It is not the processor itself. Issues like programs running in the background, and malware in your Windows system files... Go to the Virus & Malware Removal thread:

8-Step Virus & Malware Removal

Follow the instructions carefully and post the logs required. When you do this, we will be able to see just what might be affecting your laptops performance

My toshiba laptop won't turn on...a little background. It was working just fine, sitting at the kitchen table, walked away for a minute and the cat decided to walk across the keyboard. Now...it won't turn on...lights are on for battery. When power button is pressed...it turns on for 3 seconds then light goes out..... Help!!!
 

A:Help with Toshiba Laptop

Hmm... okay, this is an interesting one. Darn those cats, always walking across keyboards.

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.

Hope I can help ^_^

I have a laptop Toshiba, which is crushing every time I turn it on. I try to restore from checkpoint from safe mode, it does not restore, crushed. Could you please help me? I was trying also to recover the disk, but I cannot

Thanks,
Oleg

A:Toshiba laptop

Hi there, can i get a little better description? What does it mean when you say your laptop is crushing? Are you trying to say it doesn't boot? or is it making a weird noise?

The question i usually ask people is, what is your computer doing or not doing right now?

A friend of mine was asking for help with her toshiba laptop. The problem she is having is that her hibernate is set to three minutes before it starts up, and she can not change it. We both tried going through the right click on the desktop (she is using XP) and go to the screen saver tab, then click on the power settings. 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?

thanks if anybody can help

I have a Toshiba Satellite laptop with Windows 7 OS. I have some sort of virus that will not let me boot, except in safe mode; and then it takes 10 minutes to get booted up. I uninstalled and tried to reinstall Kaspersky Antivirus 2011, but it says it can't install because a virus is present. However, AVG and Symantec did not find anything when I scanned the harddrive from an uninfected computer. Sorry, I ran Combo Fix before I read not to, but I'm not certain what, if anything,it did. I also ran Hijack this, and am attching my log file in hopes that someone can help me! I have not fixed anything that Hijack This found.
