The touch pad heating is probably caused by either the CPU, video card or hard drive heating up. Try blowing out the fan vents and intake with canned air and see if that helps. Also try to make sure that when you're using the laptop, it is on a surface that allows airflow underneath it so the fans can properly cool the unit down.

Most laptops have the hard drive under that area and it could be your hard drive overheating i would get a usb laptop cooler or replace the drive with a 5400 rpm drive so it runs cooler.

Your Toshiba Satellite Pro might be using a specified IP address. Try to set it to obtain an IP automatically. Depending on the Windows OS, whether it is XP, Vista or Windows 7, go to your Control Panel then Network connections or Network Sharing Center and double click on the Local Area Network connection (if your are using wired) or Wireless Connection. Look for the TCP/IP protocol and make sure it is enabled as "Obtain IP address Automatically" and "Obtain DNS addresses automatically". Then click OK to save settings.

Should you need further assistance, please let me know. Thank you for using FixYa.

NO SOUND ON MY TOSHIBA Satellite U405


It is probably a driver issue. First check the device manager, from the Control Panel. A red triangle with an X or a yellow triangle with an exclamation point indicate that the issue is with the driver.

http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/home.jsp?nav=Download will let you search for your model and download the XP sound driver.

The specific driver may be: http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/modelContent.jsp?ct=DL&os=&category=&moid=2043975&rpn=PSU41U&modelFilter=&selCategory=3&selFamily=1073768667# (using the Satellite Pro U400-S1001V above)

I hope this helps.

The wireless switch on my toshiba satellite u400


Is more than likely the wireless LAN card has gone faulty.
If the laptop is no longer under warranty, you will probably find its cheaper to plug in a USB Wireless Dongle.
Not ideal I know but it would be cheaper - and quicker.

Do i need (s)ata drivers for toshiba satellite u400? or i can install xp without a problem?


Start your laptop and goto your BIOS and check if SATA setting is available.if available then configured it in IDE Mode or disable it, (if disable option is available).
Now, you should be able to installed windows XP without any problem;

Usually these days,Laptop BIOS comes with little or standard setting;if that is the case;then you will need SATA driver during installation in other to recognise your SATA hard drive.
