Question about Toshiba Satellite A665-S6086 Laptop

1 Answer

My toshiba a665-s6086 says the hardware switch is off and I have tried reinstalling the driver, reinstalling the intel wimax software, and nothing has worked. I tried pressing the wifi switch button above the keyboard, but nothing happens except for the button acts like it was press (meaning the light goes off then fades back in), but the wifi doesn't come back on. Also, I have pressed fn f8, and all it says is wireless communication disabled and there is no help from there. Also, I went into the wimax connection utility and I tried to turn it on from there but it was grayed out, and it was grayed out in the windows mobility center for the wireless switch. My connection was working fine this morning, but I forgot to shut it down after I was done working on it, it was not plugged in, and when I got home from school, I could not get the wireless to come back on. I have tested my wifi connection on 3 other computers in my house so I know that it cannot be my modem or router. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    There is no I/O device Config. under advanced. all that is under there is boot speed, exe-disable bit, capability virtualization tech, beep sound, sleep and charge, sleep and music, usb legacy emulation, and system config. It is not under the system config either

    It turned out to be VMware was causing the problem. I uninstalled it and now my computer works just like it used to.

    What BIOS do you have? Award, AMI or Phoenix?

  • Mohamed Omran Mar 12, 2011

    Then the setting should be under the Advanced menu, I/O Device Configuration submenu.

Hi Joel_Kennedy!

Thank you for using Fixya.

Based from your description its maybe that your speakers might be grounded.

However, just a basic troubleshooting you may uninstall or reinstall your audio driver and if still having the same issue, speakers needs to be check for the ground issue.

I have bought Toshiba Satellite A665 model laptop before 15days My scroll bar is not working - How do I make it to work where do I find scroll up or down option - please help with that

If you can reset the laptop - restore the PC to the set date of installation of software.
If this wont help I suggest that you seek help from the dealer as the set is under warranty . It might have a corrupt OS or the drivers need to be reinstalled.

I recently have bought a Toshiba Satellite a665 s6086 laptop. All in all it is a great product. nonetheless I am not satisfied by the on board graphics card - intel gma hd. I searched through some forums...

The "graphics card" in laptops are part of the motherboard.
If you browse there you will find out exactly what you can do by way of updating drivers etc.
And, I agree, a lovely laptop.
