Question about Toshiba Satellite A215-S7462 Laptop

1 Answer

I have a Toshiba Satellite A210 or also known as A215 in the US. I have an in built webcam but more often than not, it wont work. When I'm on MSN, it will come up with the message saying that its not plugged in or installed. It decides to work sometimes but most of the time it does not. Even on the actual laptop without using MSN, the icon is still in the bottom right hand corner but when I right click on it and choose 'Show Toolbar', I then click 'Start Camera' it still wont even come up. Or when it does, the blue light will come on, then go off, and then say 'graph render fail'. And then I wont be able to use it on MSN. Even if I restart it or shut it down and then start it up again, it still will not work. I've already gone into control panel: system: device manager: Chicony USB 2.0 Camera and then I've right clicked and updated the driver software, however on my laptop, I already have the best driver software. I want to be able to use my webcam consistently. Thankyou.

Service Manual for the Toshiba Satellite A215 series of Notebook PC's,

http://www.tim.id.au/blog/tims-laptop-service-manuals/#toc-toshiba

Under the main heading - Toshiba, go down to the subheading -
Satellite A10. (A10 in blue)
Go across, and click on A215. (In blue)

This is a PDF file. The computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files.
After you click on the file name { A215 }, it may take up to 30 seconds before the first page comes up.

The motherboard diagram follows this diagram,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Motherboard_diagram.svg

The CPU is an AMD Athlon 64 X2 TL-58, (Turion Core ), mobile Processor,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_AMD_mobile_microprocessors#.22Tyler.22_.2865_nm.29_2


Processor has two processor cores that can operate up to 1900MegaHertz, or also stated as 1.9GigaHertz.
(1900MHz/1.9GHz)

Does Not mean a total of 3.8GHz.
Total is still 1.9GHz. It's just two processor cores teaming up on the same task.

Chip and Chipset denote I.C.
Integrated Circuit.

The motherboard chipset is an ATI RX-690 (Southbridge chip is ATI SB600 )

We oreded one and got the other


There is no significant difference other than the build version with the latest build being the one you received and the best in that class of notebook, the A200 series.

You received what you ordered it is just the latest edition and you want that kind of service from Toshiba a great notebook maker.

Hope this Fixed Ya!
