Question about Toshiba Satellite R15-S822 Tablet PC

1 Answer

Startup takes least a good 5 minutes

I don't use the tablet part of this PC.  Can anyone tell me how to disable the gizillion Toshiba "accessory" apps that come up with startup???
Of course I don't want to disable anything that is critical so I need to know what I can get rid of.  I don't use ANY of the Toshiba accessory items.

When I need the PC, I need it super fast for the work I am involved in.
Hate to buy a new one due to $$$ but I may have to .... this is just not working out.

I'd love to get rid of most of the unnecessary Toshiba apps to speed up the startup of this PC.  I just added 1 gig more of RAM to the 512mb it came with and it's not one bit faster.  Yes, the PC recognizes the new ram as
almost  a gig and a half.

Please help!!!  And thanks so much in advance.

Hi Lynne

You may remove unnecessary startup items by using MSCONFIG utility. You may keep only Toshiba Touchpad utility and Essential security programs. Perform maintenance like using Disk clean up and disk error checking. Also using the performance settings definitely will create significant change. If you need further assistance you may post again I will reply asap.

Good Luck

Sound is not working on Toshiba AT7-C tablet. Anyone knows how to fix it.

Notification option may over ride in some tablets.
Do cold restart of the device to hear startup sound.
I would also consider verifying the latest firmware.

How do I unlock my Toshiba Portege 3500 Tablet PC at motherboard password

If you want the fast way, then probably you have to rely on a third-party software. Take a try this password recovery software, it should help clear and reset the lost password and bypass the locked computer.

Note: you can do this on your own, no need to send the PC to anybody for any repair because it's dangerous for your private information stored on the computer, best regards.

I bought this computer at a garage sale and it is set up to log on by pressing ctl,alt,delet but I don't have the password is there any way around this

Try this:At startup, before you get the Windows splash screen,hit the F8 key to see if you can start in safe mode. If you can, the password for administrator may not have been set, in which case you can log on without entering one.Otherwise, you'll have to do a reinstall of Windows or, when starting the reinstall, when the computer says it's loading drivers, etc, you can press CTRL F10 and that should get you to the screen where you can see the passwords.

Clean dust from tablet pc screen

You have to remove the screw covers (the black squares around the screen), remove the screws and gentley pry the cover open with yor finger nails or a flat head screw driver, but be careful not to dent the sides with the screw driver. You can then take a can of air and blow the dust out. I would not touch the sensetive screen under neath. You could take a anti static, micro fiber cloth to wipe off the tough stuff.

How do I disable my touchpad on my Toshiba Portege 700?

Toshiba usually set the keys Fn+F9 as the touchpad enable/disable - the touchpad software has to be running in the taskbar to allow this however.

Slow computer

The reason may be one or more problems acting together. The problem nowadays is that it is very difficult and time consuming to monitor and take care of your Lenovo PC. Even experienced users find it hard to perform such tasks on regular basis because you might need to prepare a huge amount of time and energy to deal with each issue separately.

If you want to fix the problems more efficiently, try the Lenovo speed up program, available here:
