When I start my Laptop I, the screen comes with a message, "ALERT: System protection failure! Password =


You may try to insert the original operating system disc and fixing the boot process. Some computers do not offer an operating disc, thus you may have to use the Restore function. When booting, hit the F8 key and start up in the safe mode. Search for the Restore function and go from there. The problem is you did not state what version of Windows your using and it is difficult to navigate without that information.

Hi - my laptop (toshiba L300, model no. PSLB0A-02M027) just freaked out on me - first it went BEEEP then froze, and now it reckons that 'no audio output device installed' so no noises from laptop, also no...


You should visit toshiba's online website to check to see if it can be fixed under warranty (it might still have warranty life available.) If it is out of warranty, you can try and do a restore to an earlier time using the restore feature under help and support. Just go to Start - help and support and type in the search box backup and restore and just follow the directions listed there.
Hope this helps.

The computer comes with bluetooth but there is no icon in controll panel


By typing fsquirt in run command,a bluetooth file transfer wizard opens.
But before that you should check the following.

When you install a supported Bluetooth adapter in Windows XP SP2 or any Windows OS, the adapter becomes active together with the following Microsoft components:
  • Microsoft Bluetooth Enumerator This component enumerates Bluetooth devices and capabilities.
  • Bluetooth Device (Personal Area Network) This driver supports Personal Area Network (PAN) connections between devices.
  • Bluetooth Device (RFCOMM Protocol Transport Driver Interface [TDI]) This component supports dial-up networking (DUN). It also supports other types of connections between devices.
  • Bluetooth Support Service (BthServ) This service maintains and updates device pairing information. It also performs other functions that are related to Bluetooth features.
These components are available in Device Manager after you install a Bluetooth adapter. Other drivers and components are also installed.
The Options tab in Bluetooth Devices provides options that control how devices discover and connect to your computer. The main option is Turn discovery on. This option lets devices discover your computer so that you can make a connection.
Other options on this tab include the following:
  • Allow Bluetooth devices to connect to this computer This check box controls whether any devices can connect to your computer. If this check box is cleared, no devices can connect to your computer.
  • Alert me when a new Bluetooth device wants to connect This option controls whether you receive notification when a device tries to connect to your computer. If this check box is cleared, you do not receive notification.
Other options on the Options tab let you turn on or turn off the Bluetooth icon in the notification area and restore default settings.

Hi there lauren,

You need to REINSTALL the Toshiba HDD/SDD Alert Monitor. Try to look at the setup file under Program Files directory and inside the My Toshiba folder. It would be better to remove the program first thru the Add/Remove Programs in the Control Panel.

Should you need further assistance, please let me know.

Good Luck!

Under Programs in the My Toshiba folder there is a Toshiba Application Installer. Open(click) that and then re-install the HDD/SDD Alert Monitor. My Toshiba did the same thing and that's how I fixed it.

Not able to connect to BT Homehub wireless Toshiba Satellite Pro


  1. Click the Start button getcontent.aspx?assetid=4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33&documentset=en-us&renderkey=signed1, click Control Panel, and then double-click Bluetooth Devices.
  2. Click the device that you want to change, and then click Properties.
  3. Do any of the following:
    • To change the name of the device, click the General tab, type a new name, and then click OK.
    • To enable a service, click the Services tab, select the check box next to the service, and then click OK.
    • To disable a service, click the Services tab, clear the check box next to the service, and then click OK.
    • To make your computer discoverable to Bluetooth enabled devices, in the Bluetooth Devices dialog box, click the Options tab, and then select the Allow Bluetooth devices to find this computer check box.
    • To make Bluetooth enabled devices discoverable to your computer, in the Bluetooth Devices dialog box, click the Options tab, and then select the Allow Bluetooth devices to connect to this computer check box.
    • To be notified when a Bluetooth enabled device wants to connect to your computer, in the Bluetooth Devices dialog box, click the Options tab, and then select the Alert me when a new Bluetooth device wants to connect check box.
    Warning
    • To help protect your computer, only make your computer discoverable when you want a Bluetooth enabled device to find your computer.

Some computer programs require a COM port (also called a serial port) to communicate with a Bluetooth enabled device. For example:
  • A program that synchronizes contacts with a mobile phone
  • A program that extracts Global Positioning System (GPS) coordinates from a GPS receiver
When you use the Add Bluetooth Device Wizard to add a Bluetooth enabled device to your computer, you create an incoming COM port, which permits your device to connect to a program on your computer, and an outgoing COM port, which permits a program on your computer to connect to your device. Usually, you only need to use one of these COM ports.
To decide which COM port to use, you can check the information that came with the program or your Bluetooth enabled device, or go to the manufacturer’s website.
If you're still not sure which COM port to use, try each COM port, one at a time, and use the one that successfully allows the program and your device to communicate.

Bluetooth not found by computer


Hi Bryan,
if you installed the printer by USB, the computer will have installed the drivers for that connection. ( Although USB is Plug and Play ) I,d refer to your user manual regarding bluetooth connectivity, also your printer.
The bluetooth device ( printer ) usually has to transmit signals, to be detected by the Computer. You,ll probably find that if you enable bluetooth on the Laptop. And turn the bluetooth on the Printer ( if Applicable ) by turning on/off or other function ( sync et,c ) the laptop will sense the Printers signal.
Once you have a communication between the two your setup.
I,d suggest unplugging the USB, as the laptops software/hardware, will assume that the printer already has an adequate connection, and will look no further.
Hoipe this resolves your questions regarding Bluetooth Connectivity.

Sony TXN17P Bluetooth vagaries


Hmmm...

If you can connect manually but it is not connecting automatically, then you have a settings problem either on the phone (less likely) or within the applet on your laptop controlling the bluetooth services. Try that first before reverting to the XP bluetooth software; usually when companies include custom bluetooth software, it is necessary.

If you cannot connect at all...

If you have tried to pair the laptop with the Nokia using the Toshiba applet and it never seems to work, and you've tried adjusting the settings on the phone and in the applet, and you know the bluetooth card is on and running normally on the laptop, I'd suggest uninstalling the Toshiba drivers and software through CONTROL PANEL and then rebooting and see if XP takes control of the bluetooth adapter. If not, try uninstalling the bluetooth hardware in DEVICE MANAGER and then rebooting, which will force XP to do a clean install (including bluetooth support software) and see if this gets you to normal operation under XP. If not, go to the SONY web site and, again, do a clean install of their bluetooth support software for your model, and try again from there. One of these combinations is pretty sure to work.

Make sure that if your laptop has a physical button on it to activate the bluetooth radio, that it is on, and that the device is enabled through device manager/network/connectivity. Any one of these being mis-set can (especially on Sonys) result in a confusing set of inexplicable failure conditions.

Good luck...
