Question about Toshiba Satellite A100-S8111TD Notebook
Hi there, for some reason the media buttons (AV button function) on my toshiba A100 will not funtion when used to play music and movies. Secondly, the finger scanner is disabled too, I can swipe to log on but cannot use it when logged on to open my safe folder. Do you have any clues as to what the problem is? If you could help I would be very much obliged.
I have the same laptop (toshiba sat A100) and have had the same problem (and many others!) the only way you can get the buttons to work is if you use the product recovery disk and start over from scratch.. I have had to do this 4 times already - in the space of a year! The buttons seem to work fine for at least a month or so after re-installation of the operating system. After that time they just dont work (for reasons unk**wn to me - and trust me I have educated myself immensely trying to find a solution!) Even the toshiba support guys (unfort) couldnt help! Although the lady I spoke to last (support thru toshiba website) suggested I download drivers - 1. Toshiba common Module & 2. Toshiba Control again... Hope this helps..
I have ***** tried posting my pc dilemmas online b4. I thought 'why waste my time' as k**wing my luck (and im **t being negative - just a ralist! this laptop has been a bit of a nightmare - I was thinking I simply got a factory dud!) But anyway here it goes -
Can someone pls pls pls tell me how to reinstall bluetooth stack for windows by toshiba (the only one thats compatible with my laptop) so that my pc will accept it. All of a sudden my bluetooth radio was disabled and I couldnt get it to start up again. The original error code I was getting was Code 10-device can**t start. So I uninstalled then reinstalled. During bluetooth driver installation a msg box appeared asking me to 'plug in bluetooth device and click ok'. I have ** idea how to do this or even if I have to do this! As far as I k**w my bluetooth device is internal and besides I didnt have to do any of this when I first bought the laptop. I have tried everything to repair this to the best of my k**wledge. Even to the point of purchasing several device driver software tools and other xp repair tools - to ** avail!
Plssss can someone take amoment out of their day and respond with any suggestions.
Here are some details -
