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 want to update my graphic accelerator driver which is Mobile Intel 4 Series Express Chipset Family.
On the Intel's website I've found for this accelerator and Win XP OS new driver which has been released 31.3.2009, its version is 14.38.3.5047.

Though I can't install it because this driver isn't verified by Toshiba and on Toshiba's website is driver which is one year old (of course I've got this one). So, is some way to install new driver from Intel or can you please this driver verified?

BTW If latest drivers are more than one year old, it doesn't look like good support.

Hmm I install the Intel-sourced drivers on my laptop successfully, maybe things have changed.

Anyway have you tried the drivers from a newer Toshiba model?

Is there a reason you want to update the driver? i.e. Do the new drivers fix a problem you are seeing?

I bought a laptop a few months ago, and now I've just tested the laptop in the games and I noticed a difficult problem.
My laptop has the following configuration:

Windows 10 Pro x64Intel I7 5500U @2.40 GhzGPU 1: Intel HD 5500 (shared memory)GPU 2: AMD R7 m260 with 2GB GDDR3 64bit8 GB (1x8) @1600MHz DDR3LSSD Kingston v300 128 Gb (system)HDD Toshiba 1 TB (data)

Multitasking is Excellent, the processor works as silly.
integrated graphics is also good, as soon as I enter the game on the switch r7 graphics that moves terribly that cottage.
I reinstalled the system and drivers, I tried all possible, the GPU-z says that the benefits of PCI Express 1.1 x4. Each game works better with integrated instead of the r7. it can be said that as soon switch to R7 260 laptop is not working, sticking.
As soon as I turn off the card (r7) in the device manager and so your computer stays to work on the integrated hd5500 everything goes as best he can.
I do not know what else to try, even Furmark does not recognize the AMD card.
forgive me for my bad English.

On the Toshiba driver support website two display drivers can be downloaded : one installs INTEL HD Graphics Family and the other one installs AMD Catalyst. The AMD driver doesn't work for me, I remember it not even being detected in Device Manager (WEI was 1.0 for both graphic parameters also, so it was disabled for sure).Then, I uninstalled it and installed the Intel driver instead, which worked almost perfectly, the only problem being that the Video Controller is marked with the yellow ! in Device Manager. Thus this can't be the correct driver either.

I tried to install the latest AMD Catalyst manually but it turned out to be just as problematic: after resuming from standby, the screen would stay black and not lit up and I would have to shut it down using the power button)

I've recently purchased a Satellite C50D-A-11Q and back-spec'd it to Windows 7 64 bit. Unfortunately; there are two drivers which, despite hours of searching, I cannot find. One is the Universal Serial Bus (USB) Controller and the other is the graphics driver.

I've been in device manager and discovered that the Graphics Chipset is an AMD Radeon HD 7310 and the USB Controller is an AMD FCH USB XHCI Controller. However the correct drivers still elude me.

Any suggestions gratefully received.

Hello everyone,

My little more than one year old Satellite notebook won't turn on when I press the power button. The lights next to the button work, but the computer itself doesn't turn on (no HDD, no CPU).

I took it to a service, and today I called them - they're telling me that the video card overheated (and I didn't really understand, what I got out of it was that the soldered pins got detached) and that's what's causing the problem. They said they can solder it back for $250...

I'm a little skeptical, because I know that I can boot a [desktop] computer without a video card, at least to hear the HDD and the CPU.

Can it be possible that my computer doesn't boot because my video card is detached from the motherboard?

I'm also a little skeptical because I think what they're trying to do is rip me off, that's why I'm asking if this is reasonable. They charge me $30 bucks either way now that they opened my computer and "checked" what was wrong, and they walk away with even more money if they get me to agree to repair it...

My fear is that possibly they even fiddled with my video card now (let's say that the problem was a simple wire and they ruin the soldering on my video card...) just to get me to pay $250 bucks for the computer back.
If I choose to not repair this computer, they'll probably offer to buy it off of me for about the same price if not lower, and it's still a very good lapt... Read more

Hi OliviaITlover Depending on the laptop/computer brand and model you have, you won't have the same lights as others. Some offers light for the A/C, network (WiFi), network (Ethernet), disk usage, etc. while others only offers light for the A/C. Personally, I've never seen a light for the CPU usage. If you want to know your CPU usage (and if it's struggling), right-click on the taskbar and select Open Task Manager. From there, you'll see your CPU usage and if it's struggling or not.

Is there ANY way to find/add/download somehow restore my missing touchscreen driver?  When I first called Toshiba they told me to call Microsoft.  Microsoft told me to download the driver from Toshiba's site.  Toshiba does not offer this

I'm looking to upgrade the RAM because it runs a little slow for my tastes with Windows Vista.

What I did: I first the start order set for USB with the F12 key, then click F10 pressed and start again. Next, did not begin the installation, but returned after the boot just to back the existing installation. Then I made a few more attempts, unfortunately without results. Can anyone tell me, what I did wrong and point me how I need to run a Windows installation on this toshiba Satallate. I would be very grateful for a comment and a little help.

Good morning people.

I do have an issue with my Satellite. I am currently not home and do not know the exact version i have, but its a C-Series Laptop.

I watched NFL on Sunday, as usual, shut down the Laptop, went to bed.

Monday morning, i started the Laptop and it was already taking ages. I could then log in and saw my wallpaper, the battery status on the bottom right and the windows logo (Start) in the left bottom corner. Every now and then, other logos would show up, but disappear shortly after.

After a few minutes, i got the Windows Blue screen, saying there was an issue and data is being collected.

Reboot.

Toshiba Logo and its saying "data beeing analyzed" - "repair being prepared" - "repair started, may take up to two hours" - blackscreen, reboot, "data being analyzed" and so on.

Now, i had my laptop running for a solid 14 hours and it kept going through this loop.

It will not start from a CD, it will not let me get to BIOS.

I have taken out the RAM one after another, same issue.

What other steps could i take to save my data or the laptop?

Thanks all,

I installed Flux when the issue firt started, since then I've uninstalled flux and performed a system recovery to be double certain the laptop software was restored to its pre-problem state.

No luck,so I wanted a diagnosis from you guys, so I can figure out if its something I can fix myself, or if I should hire somebody to do it.

The laptop is only 3 months old, so still under warranty but as I don't have the receipt I don't know if I can claim against the warranty.

Hi,

Everytime this happen i lose all my files on photoshop, and it is really annoying.

I tried to update the drivers of both graphic processors, but nothing have changed.
I have an AMD radeon R9 m265x graphic processor and intel(R) hd graphics 4600.

How can i solve the problem?

I'm thinking of giving back the laptop.

A:Satellite S70-B - graphic driver crashes using photoshop

The open question is:
Which graphic card driver crashes while using the Photoshop?

As you said: the notebook was equipped with a dedicated external AMD/ATI graphic card and the other internal Intel HD GPU is part of the CPU.
Since the Photoshop application needs lot of graphic performance (photo editing), I would recommend you to check the graphic configuration. Photoshop should use the ATI GPU instead of Intel.

How to do that?
This can be changed in ATI catalyst settings. This YouTube clip could be interesting… It shows you how to switch to ATI GPU and to get best performance.

Inherited a TOSHIBA SATELLITE laptop computer (2008 vintage) from my daughter. It had VISTA on it and an old version of IE. Would not update IE saying it was 'not computable with OS'.

i have a toshiba satellite m40 and it has no hard drive. even if it doesnt have a hard drive it should be able to boot and tell me so. my problem is:

1st. the laptop screen works sometimes. meaning the laptop turns on but the screen is off....but other times it turns on fine. now, when the screen doesnt turn on, i found that hitting it makes the screen appear and im not happy about hitting my laptop, im just trying to get it to work.

2nd. when the screen does work, the laptop gets stuck at the motherboard logo screen and does not move from there.....unless..... you hit it.

whats wrong with the dumb thing? anybody help?

oh and like the thing is, it does function, the screen does turn on and the motherboard logo screen does change but u have to really hit it a few times..... other wise it freezes or the screen wont turn on.... ive ran linux off of a live cd on it so i know for a fact im right.

It is time to have the laptop serviced by a qualified technician, or to buy a new laptop. If you are familiar with removing memory or hard drive, you can try reseating them. The video cable from the LCD panel to the motherboard may be pinched or loose

I bought this new, obviously some years ago.
XP Home and all original hardware.
Gave it to my sister about 4 years ago to run to run scientific apps that won't run on anything newer than XP.
In her possession, It was not used on a network---no internet at all.

It's screen went blank but the lights on the front of the case showed it loading/booting up.
So I attached it to an old CRT monitor. As the computer booted the screen filled with a few hundred colored vertical lines but finalized with the regular background, but no icons or start menu. Right clicking on it did nothing.

So I booted to an Acronis Boot disk and installed a known drive image I made 4 years ago that I knew was good. Same issue.

I then installed the factory image from my Toshiba Install disk and, with the CRT attached, it boots up normally with no apparent issues.

I still need to check the wiring connections of the laptop monitor but at least it's still useful with the external monitor.

I'd like to hand this back to my sister with confidence as she uses it at home to do scientific data analysis for her employer.
Any thoughts on what this issue might be, have been?
SysInfo to follow.

So, the problem started when my dad told me various recharge lights would not come one. Low and behold after opening it up I noticed the Power Pin within the DC housing was not there, in fact it dropped directly into my hand while I was opening it... So after a great deal of experimentation in trying to fix it... I have given up, if I jiggle it for a little while the lights will come on for a second... Please look at diagram for what I believe is accurate~

The connector just behind the housing... is that a ground? my limited knowledge on, on-board circuitry prevents me from repairing this myself.


 

A:Toshiba Satellite A75-S209 DC Issue

if you can visually seek the break, then you know where it should connect in order to repair it. You need not know the polarity. But I don't recommend repairing this yourself unless you are good with a soldering iron. Take it to a shop.

The mouse, out of nowhere, starts to go to the right or to the left and there is nothing to do to remove it from the place. Sometimes it stops and others doesn't. This problem prevents us from working. It has nothing to do with the mouse (we tried several) or with docking station because it happens without the docking station.
