It's either the memory on the 2nd slot is faulty or loose, try to reseat the memory and check if you will get the same error message if it does then try to remove the said memory on your laptop and check if the error will message will disappear then you can already tell that the memory card on bay 2 or slot b needs replacement.

High definition audio controller This device cannot start. (Code 10)


If you run into the error "This device cannot start. Code 10 (often followed by a driver identifier, for example "This device cannot start. Code 10 in audio driver"), here is what it means.

The Windows error "This device cannot start. Code 10 or "This device cannot start. (Code 10)" is a hardware error that most commonly means that you have a bad, missing, or incompatible device driver. So, for example, "This device cannot start. Code 10 in audio driver" means that you have a bad or missing or incompatible driver for your sound card.

The technical explanation for this message, according to Microsoft, is this:

"If the device has a FailReasonString value in its hardware key, that string appears as the error message. The driver or enumerator puts this registry string value there. If there is no FailReasonString in the hardware key, you receive the following error message:

This device cannot start. (Code 10)"

What does that mean in plain English? It means that if the device which is throwing the error has added its own custom error text to your Windows system when the device was installed, then when the device encounters an error, you will see the custom error message specific to that device. But if it doesn't have its own custom error message, then Windows uses its own generic error message for devices, which is "This device cannot start. (Code 10)"

Microsoft recommends that when this happens, you click "Update Driver" to update the drivers for the device. You can also start the Windows troubleshooting wizard by going to the general properties tab of the device, and clicking on "Troubleshoot".

Before doing this, be sure that you have the correct and most up-to-date versions of the driver(s) for that device. You can also try uninstalling and reinstalling the device, using the disk which came with it.

Finally, you can go to the website of the device's manufacturer, and check their downloads or support section for current, up-to-date drivers.
Go to Toshiba support site look for Toshiba Satellite A135 drivers, download the one for your windows 32 or 64 bit install, restart and off you go. Regards, Mike

WHEN BOOTING THE TOSHIBA SATELLITE A215-S5837 I hear two beeps and get a dark screen. I can press f1 and go into safe mode but don't know what to do next. The error message is "resource conflict...


Hello,
These beeps are error code and two short beeps during start up normally refers to RAM or memory not being detected. You can try to reseat the RAM modules or ask someone who knows how to do it. If it will still be the same, it means that the RAM is defective and consider replacing it.
Cheers!

I have a Toshiba Satellite A10-S129. It was working with 256 MB (2 x 128 MB). I wanted to upgrade it to 512 MB (2 x 256 MB). I bought 2 new 256 Modules and when changed it and turned on screen has...


If you get several beeps then there is a video problem. The video card uses shared RAM (part of the main RAM) and if the RAM is faulty the laptop won't boot up.
You might have incompatible RAM, try to use the same make and speed RAM as the original.
One of the RAM modules may be faulty.
Try installing one 256Mb RAM module then boot up the Toshiba, if it works the try the other RAM module.

2G memory card not working


Hi,

If the original memory card (RAM Stick) is working, then it just means two things; either the 2GB memory card is defective or incompatible with your system. Incompatible means the type is not for your motherboard or the 2GB is more than what your computer can handle. You dont need any drivers for your memory card (RAM).

Try to install a 1GB first and check if it is working. make sure the type (ddr,ddr2,ddr3) is the same as the original and the Bus speed (3200,667,800,etc.) is the same as well to eliminate incompatibility errors.

Hope this helps.

Satalite m35x-s161 how to replace the keyboard?


Toshiba Satellite How to remove keyboard and upgrade memory modules. This post was written by cj2600 on April 28, 2006
Posted Under: Toshiba Satellite A20/A25 --> toshiba-satellite-a20-a25-memory.jpgRemoving and replacing memory on a Toshiba Satellite A20 or A25 notebook is not as easy ad it should be. Both memory modules are located under the keyboard. A laptop keyboard has to be replaced in order to get access to the memory modules. Before you remove the keyboard do not forget to remove the laptop battery or you can damage the laptop. Be careful when you remove the keyboard securing strip; do not bend it too much. To remove the memory module from the slot on the system board, release the latches on both sides and the memory module will pop up. It will stay at a 30 degree angle to the system board. Firmly grasp the memory module and remove it from the slot.

Toshiba Satellite A135-S4527


While turned off..You could take out the CD/DVD drive, HD, all the memmory(1 or 2 modules) and If you know how, even BlueTooth and modem and WLAN mini PCI/PCIE modules. Then try to start it. If you hear 2 beeps followed by any other numbers of beeps(2_x_x)...then you can be rather glad that your motherbord (still maybe!) works ok. If you hear other kombinations of numbers of beeps(1_x_x, 3_x_x or 4_x_x) then you may have problem with the motherboard :( .. in case you hear the 2_x_x beeps you have a memory problem..shut down the laptop...now put only one of the memory modules(if you have 2) and boot up...if you get the picture you should be able to see any BIOS POST warnings/error messages..if you still hear the 2_x_x beep comb. you have a memory problem..then you should buy a new memory! if you dont see any picture on the screen it could be the Graphics card problem or yet another indication to memory problem...if you get sure that the memory and the motherboard are ok then put in the components back in and boot after each to figure out witch part is problematic...

Good luck!

Problem upgrading RAM on a Sate Pro 4600


Just a few questions first, get back to me (before rating me), and I'll see if I can get you through this. You have tried each 256 chip individually in each slot with the same error, correct? Are the 256 chip the same make? What operating system are you running? And finally, at least for now, have you done any drive, utilities, or bios firmware updates lately?
