Question about Toshiba Computers & Internet

Open Question

I have an old Toshiba laptop PS141A-0502YP. I have upgraded the RAM to 512MB and have formatted it once due to a virus. It runs on Windows XP SP2. The media keys on laptop have stopped working since the format and the Toshiba website does not have any support what-so-ever for this model. I wonder if you could help with this. P.S. - I suspect it might be a driver issue, but the drivers are nowhere to be found ...

SOURCE: Windows XP Driver for Compaq Presario V702TU

Ok I take it you still have an internet connection, If you do open your device manager and you should see some yellow question marks by some devices, Now select the ones with the marks by them and make sure you are on line and right click and select update drivers, that should get you up and running if it does not write back here and tell me what is missing and I will find them and get them to you, But I am pretty confident that doing the update it should reload and find what you need... Thanks

I have a Toshiba Satellite M115. It has a problem with hanging and crashing, more so when I'm online. It's been upgraded from XP to Windows 8. I have IE browser and Chrome browser. IE


It would be helpful if you listed your system specs. That is quite an old laptop to be running windows 8 on and you might need to upgrade your RAM. The original system specs say that laptop shipped with 512MB of RAM so if you haven't upgraded, you should.

I have a Tecra 8200 bought as used fitted with 256MB of ram. If I buy an extra 256MB which brings the total to the maximum allowed of 512MB is it likely that I will need to upgrade the bios to allow the...


This laptop came with 128mb ram, you can safely install 2 sticks of 256mb for a maximum of 512mb with no bios update.
You need pc100 sodimms.
Amazon or ebay will be the best bet as this memory is expensive now from a retailer.
I found 256mb sticks for under $10 buy it now on ebay http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/256MB-SODIMM-PC100-SDRAM-256-MB-PC-100-LAPTOP-144-Pin-/190411543153?cmd=ViewItem&pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2c55699271

Update 4090 xcdt


Yes, you can upgrade from Win98 to WinXP. The minimum hard drive requirements for WinXP is 1.5GB and the minimum RAM requirement is 64MB. You will also need a CD ROM for the install. Now those are the minimum requirements so don't expect it to go very fast. If possible I would recommend you upgrade to Win2000. WinXP and Win2000 are almost identical. The minimum hard drive for Win2000 is 650MB and for RAM it is 64MB. So you could still use your 4GB hard drive and have plenty of room. You will need a CD ROM for the Win2000 also.
Good luck if you have anymore questons let me know,

Its good idea to upgrade the RAM but not the solution, problem is probably with OS and registry. Please clean any virus, registry using cCleaner and update OS to have( try XP with SP2), Then try.

The system is very slow.


what OS do u use ?! if Vista than the comp is not going to be extremely fast in exploatation do to the 512MB of memory. But it should fly on XP ... not to mention linux OS's ... !

if u're using microsoft OS's than check u;re computer for viruses, and also do a hard disk defragmentation ! And also try to keep some free space on the partition that has the windows installed on ... And ofecourse have all u;re drivers installed !!! The latest ones !!!

..if nothing works ... give more details ...
