Reboot. I assume you're talking about Windows Updates. They get corrupt sometimes. Reboot, run the updates again and if they don't work research the error message on Google.

Everytime i start my computer.. there is always a window on the upper left that says: setting up personalized settings,Configuring Microsoft Windows Mail 7 in Vista?that is why i have to again reinstall...


Windows Mail is part of the windows live essentials update pack. If you do not use the features of this pack the easiest solution is to remove this update and not show it again. If you do that the Windows Mail configuration should no longer appear. If you do use the features of Windows Live essentials then just configuring the mail correctly should stop it from trying to configure every time you boot.

To remove the update: go to control panel>add or remove programs> on the left side look for view installed updates> click then click windows live essentials and uninstall at the top

Hope this helps

How can a remove a stuck Screw inside of a Toshiba Satellite L455-S5989 Laptop. The screw that is stuck holds down a PCIe mini Wireless Card.


Take the laptop apart techgeek564.

You Definitely do Not want it roaming around in there, to short out the laptop.

Here is the Service Manual, (Free),

http://www.tim.id.au/blog/tims-laptop-service-manuals/#toc-toshiba

Go to the 11th line down.
The one that starts with > Satellite A10
In this listing of files go down to the second line, (Starts with > C650D), and then go across to >
L450. Click on L450.

[The Toshiba Satellite L455-S5989 is part of the Toshiba Satellite L450 series ]

After you click on L450 it will take about 5 seconds to see the first page, and additional time to fully download.
(Took 45 seconds for me just now)
Suggest you let the file download all the way before looking through it.

You are not permanently downloading the file. If you want to save a copy to your computer, and do not know how, post in a Comment.

[This way you won't have to download again. You can also burn a copy of to a CD disk for safekeeping, and having access anytime you want.
Further, you can delete the file from your harddrive after burning a copy, and save harddrive space ]

A) ALL power removed from the laptop. AC adapter (Charger) and Battery.

B) Buy and use an ESD wrist strap. Connect the alligator clip to a good ground source.
(Electro Static Discharge)

Your body carries Static electricity, and Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit) the hardware components inside a computer.
The ESD wrist strap will relieve your body of Static, and safeguard your laptop from Static shock

Average price of an ESD wrist strap is around $3 to $6. Much cheaper than a new laptop.

C) Use a multi-compartment container for the various screws you will remove.
Mark each compartment for the area the screws come out of.
There may be as many as 60 screws, and 12 different types.
Do Not mix them up!

You can use a clean egg carton, and mark the egg holders.

D) Make a record as you disassemble. Make drawings and notes. Use a camera, or videocam if available.
(Use Good lighting)
It's nice to have a record to refer back to in case you get interrupted.

We have a Toshiba Satellite lap top. It was working about an hour ago, when we down loaded a BIOS upgrade from 1.4 to 1.5. After the down load and reboot the lap top now has a black screen with no wording....


BIOS updates sometimes cause the motherboard to revert to its default configuration. I recommend that you go into the BIOS setup and examine the Boot Devices and Boot Order to make sure that your hard drive is selected as the first boot device.

Good luck!

Wheres the ram?


RAM modules must be installed in special locations on the motherboard called Sockets. These memory sockets are what hold the RAM module in place and can range from 1 to 16 or more. Banks consist of a group of 1 or more sockets. A system can have 1 or more of these banks of sockets. If a system has more than 1 socket in a bank, a Kit must be purchased for that bank. A kit is simply more than one, usually 2 or 4, like RAM modules. All sockets in a bank must be filled. Typically you will see 2x512MB or 2x256MB signifying you get 2 units of 512MB RAM modules or 2 units of 256MB RAM modules, respectively.
The Toshiba Satellite A40-S270 has 2 bank(s) which have 1 socket(s) in each bank for a total of 2 memory socket(s). This means the Satellite A40-S270 can support up to 2 individual RAM modules.
Below is a visual representation of the memory bank(s) and socket(s) configuration for the Toshiba Satellite A40-S270.
socket_1.gifsocket_1.gif This graphical representation above details what the memory configuration would look like with the maximum memory installed and does not necessarily model your system memory configuration. This graphical representation is not drawn to scale and should only be used as a general reference. Please consult your system’s user manual for your actual memory configuration.
