SOURCE: Toshiba DVD recorder problem

Generally, this problem is caused by bad sectors or other problems on the hard drive and can be resolved by going into the setup menu and re-formatting the hard drive. Of course, all recordings on the hard drive will be erased, so spin them off to dvd first. Be sure to have unplugged and replugged the unit immediately prior to going into the setup menu (don't try to record anything). If this doesn't work, no-one will repair this unit locally, as it must be returned to Toshiba's(TACP) depot for repair. Best of luck.

SOURCE: wifi switch problem

At first guess, I'd say you have a driver problem. Reboot the machine in safe mode, leaving the switch in the "ON" position. (F8 at startup for safe mode).

Log into the machine, and go to Device Manager. Uninstall/remove the wifi adapter.

Reboot.

Upon reboot, the system will attempt to reinstall the adapter, but you should not have a blue screen. If you have the original drivers, point Windows to them. You don't want Windows to use the "existing" drivers, because that's where the problem occurred.

Once the good drivers are installed, you should be back in business :)

Hope this helps - remember to rate!

What made you suspect the compund? You're probably right though. The fan has died or is too slow. The CPU and the video chip are what the fan is protecting. It might require a new CPU chip and fan. If it's the video chip, then a new mother board is in your future.

Good Luck

A better fix is to tell your BIOS not to look at external drives to boot from.

Thats the proper fix but your solution will work just as well for many people.

Thank you for posting back as I am sure it will help others.

How to add fingerprint scanner to screen lock


Hi, here is the way to set a lock screen password or fingerprint scan on the Samsung Galaxy S5 :

  • Swipe down from the top of the screen and tap the settings gear icon in the top-right.
  • Tap the Lock Screen icon that should be near the top, in the Quick Settings section.
  • Tap the Screen Lock item at the top of the following screen.
  • Tap the unlock mechanism you would like to use: swipe (a quick left-to-right gesture), pattern (where you draw a pattern on a 9-point grid which must be recreated to unlock), fingerprint (which uses the fingerprint-scanning home button at the bottom of the device), PIN number, or a regular text password.
  • Each one of these methods have their own set-up process, which is presented in the following pop-up windows. Most methods will require you to enter the code twice, and sometimes you'll need to include an alternative password for when the primary method doesn't work.
  • After setting up your unlock type, scroll to the bottom of the Lock screen section, and tap Lock automatically in order to set how long the Samsung Galaxy S5 waits after a screen has shut off to require an unlock password.
If you need to update your fingerprint scan or authorize additional users, find the Finger Scanner section within settings. From there, you can also set an alternative password.
Be sure to check our tips on keeping the screen active too, as well as our other Galaxy S5 help guides. There's also the Galaxy S5 forums if your particular issue isn't solved there. And be sure to read our complete Galaxy S5 review!
Personally, I'm a big fan of the fingerprint sensor, though the ergonomics don't always work out for everyone, and sometimes it takes multiple swipes to work. What's your favorite way of unlocking your device? How long do you set your lock timeout for?

I can't shutdown my laptop.


If you can't shut down normally (using windows), you can press and hold the power button until the computer shuts down. You can also remove the battery.
Make sure to save you work or anything that is open before you perform a hard shut down.

Finger print enrollment


The security software should have been installed at Toshiba. If not it is easy to download and install. You should have a biometric coprocessor driver which runs the scanner. That sounds like what is missing. If you had to reinstall windows this may not have been put back in.

To get the drivers go to www.toshiba.com and then click on support.-mobile computing - drivers download. This pops up a new window that you now have to click on what model you have. I have a Tecra A8 201E so I click on notebook in the left, Tecra, then A8 and then on 201E then click on the go button. You should filter by operating system so you are only looking at the right drivers. There are three downloads for the security. One will be called HDD security, TPS Trusted Platform Security, and Fingerprint software. If you download those and save to your desktop then you can easily run then as needed. When you have them run the one called fingerprint software. That should install the scanner drivers and may be all that you need. Try running it after installing this. Make sure your backup password is something you can remember. If your scanner fails and you can't remember that then you can get locked out of your computer.

The TPS provides some other tools such as a 'safe' that saves files in an encrypted area. You can disable it if it inteferes too much.

The HDD utility locks the hard drive which can stop people from using your computer as they won't have your fingerprint to unlock the drive.
