Question about Toshiba Satellite A135-S4467 Notebook

1 Answer

Laptop won't connect to internet

Hi,
I was surfing (on trusted sites:)) when suddenly I saw that computer is recognizing new hardware. Because I wasn't installing or doing anything I tried to stop it and got a message saying something about Ethernet Controller.
Unfortunately I hit cancel or end or something before I read the message through. Since that day I don't have internet.
When I try to diagnose connection problems it just recommends to connect to wireless network (which I don't have). I have cable connection and there isn't any problem with that. I have checked my laptop with AVG and ad-aware. Didn't find anything.
So, any kind people here who can tell me what is ethernet controller and might that the reaon why I can't connect to the net anymore?
Oh, and I have Vista.

    Hi,
    you just made my day if the solution really is that easy :)

    My laptop model is Toshiba Satellite A135-S4467.

    I tried to do a search on Toshiba web page (ethernet vista) but got only information on SP1.

    Maybe you are better in finding the correct driver. Thank you so much in advance!

Hi,
Your laptop is missing the driver for Ethernet controller made for Vista.

You should be able to get it from your laptop brand's website.

I could have given a try if you had mentioned your laptop model :)

All the best.

I have connected the cable from the printer to the lap top correctly but it still comes back saying the the laptop cannot recognise the printer. The connection was bought from Currays and I was assured it...


Hi graham_mcleo
The printer came with a install disc ( cdrom ) .
Disconnect the printer , launch the cdrom , follow instructions and wait for the driver/software to be correctly installed . Connect the printer with usb and power cables , swich printer on . Windows should recognize a new hardware and a message should pop on your screen telling installation was successfull or hardware is ready to use , depending on what system you are using .

Cannot connect to the internet


Reboot your modem, then reboot your new router.

The rebooting is an essential process of installing a new piece of hardware to a modem.

When your modem boots up it leases an IP Address to the MAC Address of the first connected piece of hardware (router in your case). If you switch hardware without rebooting, your modem will not recognize the new piece of hardware because it has a different MAC Address. Every piece of hardware has its own MAC Address, unless it has been cloned.

Toshiba satellite s2652 internet connection problems


You have wiped all drivers by formatting and need to go to friends PC / download latest drivers for the exact model laptop from the vendors site and install them.

NB = install mobo driver FIRST.

Best thing about drivers on the net is that they are later than the ones with the laptop from new.

Sony drx820 suddenly not recognized by computer


Does the tray open for you? Re-boot the computer and go into the BIOS and see if it is listed by the BIOS. Did you accidentally remove the hardware? Go into the control panel and add new hardware and see if it detects the drive and re-installs it. Otherwise the drive might have stopped working.

Usb device not recognized


If your laptop is running Windows ME, 2000, XP or above, it should automatically do the New Hardware thing, and mount the drive. If using Windows 98se, you can probably get the drivers from the vendors web site.

Sometimes a usb port will not provide enough power for a specific device. Does the thumbdrive work in other computers? And do other USB devices work when connected to the laptop?
