Fibocom L850-GL 4G LTE-A cat 9 in X1 Yoga 1st Gen

Q: Fibocom L850-GL 4G LTE-A cat 9 in X1 Yoga 1st Gen

Fibocom L850-GL 4G LTE-A cat 9 is orderable with X1 Yoga 3rd Gen. Could it be installed in my X1 Yoga 1st Gen to upgrade the current em7455? If the bios whitelists are shared perhaps the vid/pid for the Fibocom L850-GL 4G LTE-A cat 9 is in the list and it will be accepted. Or is it a pipe dream? I want to stick with 1st gen as the 3rd gen lacks OLED screen option, which I have.

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.)

I am considering buying an X1C gen 6.The model that is available in my region is: 20KH007JIVAccording to https://psref.lenovo.com/Product/ThinkPad/ThinkPad_X1_Carbon_6th_Gen?ch=20kh007It has a Fibocom L850-GL. Does it work with ubuntu 18.04 ? I mean does it work reliably after editing some files here and there or it's a mess ? (I am ok to edit some configs if required). Should I check anything before purchasing ? (I am plannig to only have Ubuntu 18.04 on it for development).I know there seems to be some problem with sleep mode but there are acceptable workarounds. Thank you in advance !

Hi All, I'm trying to update the firmware on the Fibocom WWAN device on my X270 laptop. I'm running windows 10 x64. I downloaded the Firemware update from here: https://download.lenovo.com/pccbbs/mobiles/nz2wi01w.exeThe Readme is Here:https://download.lenovo.com/pccbbs/mobiles/nz2wi01w.txt When I try to run the unpacked executable, L831_FWUpdateTool_L831_V2E.0C.00.16_NAND, nothing happens. Don't even get a window that then prompty dissapears, just nothing happens. I've tryed starting it from a commandline and using /? type switches to see if I can get anything else from it but nothing happens. Also checked to see that it's not blocked, or being stopped by AV, also checked event logs, there's nothing there.... Any ideas? Is it me, or is the EXE at fault? I've checked the manufacturer site directly, but they don't offer firmware downloads (As I'd exepect really) My laptop is currently running v7 so this would be jumping to v16, as at the moment I only get a "Limited Service" with my sim card. I've checked the Sim in a MiFi device and on a phone and it works fine. So I'm hoping a firmware update will help. Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

Windows still uses Microsoft made "Generic Mobile Broadband" driver, even after installing the Fibocom L830-EB Wireless WAN Dreiver For Windows 10 (Versio 1709 or later).  This ends in only giving a 50 mbps LTE connection even if the location, sim card and subscription gives 300 mps connection possibillities.   Windows only sees the generic driver, even if I manually try to choose a driver for this.

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.

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?.

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.

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.

[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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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..

I bought a 'refurbished' L850 1D5 from a CEX shop on eve of departure from UK. Unfortunately it kept crashing and autoreinstalling Windows too frequently for me to even start loading backed up user data from other pc and eventually the HDD stopped working completely, kaput. (not long after purchase, I discovered the SDslot didnt work, and Windows reported only half the 8GB memory stated on the paper label description on the lid, and in the Toshiba spec) While away I logged onto Toshiba Forums to enquire where the driver set is for my SKU. Before you suggest I throw more money after bad by add even more to the cost of what has been a rotten 2ndhand purchase, buying a Toshiba Windows Media DVD, I have already lost ?310 for a laptop unusable from the start, and so need to minimise any further expenditure repurchasing the Windows I already paid for.

Fortunately I made a note of the MS Registration KEY soon after purchase. Had it not been on eve of my flight, I obviously would have returned it for refund. Unfortunately all attempts overseas using variousPC's to download drivers failed. It turns out I guessed correctly, Toshiba downloads are region locked, as now I am briefly back in UK, downloads now appear possible. (only now realised default Forum I registered on US only) As CEX been of no help, I urgently need advice on the following:
1) I have only a slow 3G connection with a low datacap during my short stay, so all file downloads must be done at a Public Lib... Read more

Purchased just under 2 years ago. Came with Windows 8.0 Upgrade DVD.
I now wish to upgrade to Win 8 (then onto Win 8.1).

No matter what I try (BIOS changes) can?t get the DVD to boot. Under CSM boot (default for the laptop) it returns a ?non system disc? error.

I have tried the DVD in other PC drives which also results in the same error message.
Other disks eg Windows repair & Tosh recovery disks all boot OK.

So I think the disk must be faulty.

My question is has anyone else had this problem or even successfully upgraded using the Toshiba supplied DVD?. Getting hold of Toshiba to get replacement DVD seems an impossible task especially 2 years down the line.

Any suggestions?

Hi

First of all please go to BIOS and set it to default (load default) settings.

Then you should switch OFF the secure boot in order to be able to boot from external media like Disk or USB flash memory stick.

Here is an very interesting thread which provides an solution to similar booting issue using the Win 8 image.

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 just learned that because win 7 home premium was preinstalled on this laptop, all my efforts to fresh reinstall windows for the past month were doomed to failure, and that I must contact Toshiba. So please help with how I can get an install disc for this laptop.

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
