Toshiba Satelite A150-S4184,Hasent been used much,It was verry fast, now have internet again and loads very slow and takes long time to load pages,I think auto downloads instales windows 7,What can I


How much memory do you have in your Toshiba Satelite laptop?
Windows XP with Service Pack 3 needs a minimum of 1GB but ideally would run better with 2GB.

Windows 7 would need the same but there is no auto-update process to go from XP to 7 as this is not allowed - you would have to do a Custom install of Windows 7 which requires a clean install (i.e. format the hard drive and start from scratch).

If you are running XP with less than 1GB memory, then you need to check what the maximum memory that the laptop can be upgraded to?

The easiest method is to use the Crucial Memory web site System Scanner utility which will detect how much memory is installed and advise how much you can upgrade to according to the options available for the specific make & model of laptop.

If the laptop hasn't been turned on or on-line for a long time then you may be using a lot of resources downloading Microsoft critical updates plus updates for other installed programs like iTunes, QuickTime, Java etc.

Try downloading and installing a copy of the free Advanced System Care 5 utility then running the Deep Care tools which include System Optimisation and clean-up utilities to improve system performance.

My battery charges but only lasts about 20 minutes once it says it is fully charged. Just purchsed a new battery thinking it was old (laptop is about 3 years old) and the same thing happens.


From what you describe and assuming the new battery was "new", I'd say you have an internal short which is draining the battery over a short period of time. I'd also investigate the accuracy of the battery charge indicator. Download this free utility which will give you a more accurate picture of your battery:
http://www.mioplanet.com/products/batterymeter/

I'm assuming you gave the battery a "commissioning charge" when you bought and used it?
If not, this is something you should do with all new LI batteries. This bit is reproduced from a website that sells batteries for the Toshiba satellite series:

"2. The new Toshiba Satellite a205-s4777 battery pack needs to be circled (fully discharged and recharged) three to five times to reach its optimum performance.
3. Toshiba Satellite a205-s4777 battery will undergo self-discharging when left unused for a long period of time. Thus, it should always be stored in a fully charged state and kept in a cool, dry and clean place.
4. It is normal if the new Toshiba Satellite a205-s4777 battery gets warm when being charged or used. However, please pay special attention if the battery pack becomes excessively hot. This may indicate there is a problem with the charging circuit of the electronic device. Please consult a qualified technician if necessary.
5. To maintain the optimum performance of Toshiba Satellite a205-s4777 battery pack, it is highly recommended to circle (fully discharging and recharging) it at least once a month.
6. New batteries are hard to be charged. Sometimes, your electronic device may indicate a fully charged condition about 10 to 15 minutes when Toshiba Satellite a205-s4777 battery pack is being charged for the first time. When this happens, remove the battery pack and let it cool down for about 10 to 15 minutes then repeat the charging procedure. Sometimes, the new Satellite a205-s4777 battery will suddenly refuse to be charged. If this happens, a suggested solution is trying to remove the battery from the device and insert it again. "

I have downgraded the OS of my Toshiba Satellite A205-S7468 from Windows Vista to Windows XP SP3. System is having trouble identifying the proper Audio Driver. On Windows Vista, the Audio Driver is...


You can try with an automatic driver tool, yes of course, it could be installed manually, but to avoid the hassles, you better opt for a driver utility.
Download and install this software (Device Doctor Free). Once it's installed, run the program and click "Begin Scan", wait for few seconds until the scan completes and search the scan result for realtek, if so click it, the direct download page will open up, download and install the driver, that should work without any more hassles.

If you have problem, let me know.
Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

I bought a used laptop and I tried to connect it to isp and i used the cd that i recieved with my service. But when i try to install it it says i need nt6 because i only have nt1. how do i get this nt6


I think that the laptop is running Windows NT with Service Pack 1 installed, and the software that you are trying to install requires Windows NT with Service Pack 6 installed.

However, the _bigger_ issue is that Microsoft stopped supporting Windows NT (at any level of Service Packs) several years ago. Therefore, any computer running Windows NT that connects to the Internet is likely to get "hacked" within a few minutes of being connected.

So, my advice is to either "junk" the laptop, or try to find a "Microsoft Windows 2000 Upgrade" CD-ROM and license-key, and update your computer to use Windows 2000. However, Microsoft will stop supporting Windows 2000 in July 2010, i.e., just a few months away.

If you really want "Service Pack 6", find a friend with a CD-writer and Internet access. Access http://www.microsoft.com/downloads and search for 'SP6A' -- download it, burn it to a CD-R, and carry the CD-R disk to your computer, and install it.
Then, run "Windows Update" -- there are many security-fixes that will be required, even after installing 'SP6A'.

Also, you might have difficulty finding anti-virus software that runs under Windows NT !!!!

Website is too busy to show the webpage error


Seems that your browser's configuration is messed up by something else if you did not reconfigure it manually. This may be caused by a toolbar installed or a malware. What browser are you using? Are you using the same browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, etc) with your family? If you, check their browser's configuration against yours and see which one is different. Your browser should copy the settings of their functional browsers.

To check in Firefox:
1. Click Tool menu.
2. Click Options
3. Click the Advanced category (group)
4. Click the Network tab
5. Click the Settings button under the Connection group
6. Make sure "No proxy" is selected

In Internet Explorer:
1. Click Tools menu
2. Click Internet Options (Bottom)
3. Click Connection Tab
4. Click LAN Settings (bottom)
5. Make sure "Automatically detect settings" is checked

If these settings are already set and it is still not working, try to uninstall some "newly installed" browser toolbars or download and install Anti Malwarebytes to remove all malwares in your PC. You can download it free HERE.
