    Thanks for the response. The Toshiba power management application is very effective (when it works) and important to me because I have a lightweight laptop (R200) with a small battery that I need to make last as long as possible. Thus my real aim is to reinstate the Toshiba application faultlessly. After I get the message box and I "OK" it, everything runs fine, but obviously with no power management. I have now found that by restarting it after it crashes on startup, I can get it to operate OK. But on a reboot, it gives me the error messgae 1 time in 3.

    So it's not predictable.

    best regards

It sounds like the built in powersaver utility is crashing. Assuming you can log into the OS after the error, go to Control Panel - Power Options and change to some other (or none at all) setting. And/or uninstall the application completely.

If you can not even get into windows you could try changing the power settings within to bios to disable power saving at all, and that might allow you to boot properly and then turn off/uninstall as described above.

    It's possible that Toshiba has an updated version available on their web site? If not, perhaps an uninstall and re-install would get it working properly again?

    Or is it possible that some malware has gotten on your machine and that is what is causing the application to crash? PowerReg comes to mind as a possible exploit that might adversely affect the utility.

925 fatal error
all in manual above.
error codes above.

Your printer display or status monitor may read "Fatal Error". This simply means a problem has occurred requiring action to clear.
A "Fatal Error" does not mean your printer will "die". Fatal Error explanations are not usually found in the User's Guide or Handy Reference Guide.

RECOMMENDED NEXT STEP: First, try turning off your printer then turning it back on. If this does not clear the message or remedy the problem, check to see if your printer is on a power strip (or not plugged directly into the wall). For testing purposes, be sure the printer is plugged directly into the wall. Often, the issue is power-related.

Second, if the issue persists after this, write down the message (including the 3-digit error code number) and email us at "" or call Oki Data Customer Support (1-800-654-3282) for assistance.

NOTE: If you see a series of letters and numbers(scrolling across the display) after the 3-digit error code, be sure to write these down also and report them when call or emailing Customer Support.

Toshiba satellite m40 booting problem.

Hi! It appears that possibly your hrad drive isn't set properly in the caddy? with the laptop powered down and disconnected locate the hard drive cover pop out the two locating screws and carefully move the caddy/hard drive BEWARE as the drive has fragile pins at the opposite end where you opened, hopefully little sliding pressure should remove. Check the retaining screws around the caddy (You'll need a small torx/philips screw driver for this) if all tight replace gently.
If you are uncertain I would recommend a technician check it for you.
Good Luck!

Toshiba power saver fatal error 0xb7

Okay I don't know if this will work for you, but bear with me, cause this is what I did and it fixed my fatal error.

First Download System Mechanic (theres a 30 day free trial you can use for the time being)
After it's done downloading and you've installed it. Do a deep Analysis of your system, and some errors will come up. Have the program fix them for you (if there are some you don't want to fix just hide them, and if your unsure about them, just go ahead and fix them). After this restart your computer whether or not the system mechanic asks. If after a restart it still gives you an error, download the latest version of the toshiba power saver which is currently 7.08.05. I have a toshiba U205 so there wasn't a specific one for mine, so I downloaded the Toshiba Satellite R20-ST4113 Power Saver Utility 7.08.05 Windows X.

Which still worked for my system since it's an XP. If yours is a vista, I recommending finding one for vista.

After this again restart your computer to see if it helped. I hope it helped with your problem. If not i'm sorry I couldn't give anymore advice.
