Question about Toshiba Satellite A105-S4004 Notebook

3 Answers

Bluetooth problem I generally have no problem sending pictures via bluetooth from my laptop to mobile and vice versa. Lately when sending from mobile to laptop my bluetooth states "bluetooth has not started. When this happens I also lose the option to send from laptop to mobile until I reboot. I have v4.00.30(T) software.

    It will happen even when I've just turned it on. If I send a pic via bluetooth first, then it seems ok. Go figure, I'm lost.

If you have a built in bluetooth connection, then what may be happening is that the pc is turning it off in a power saving state if not being used, the same thing sometimes happens when a bluetooth dongle is conected to a usb port, you have to unplug and plug it in again to get it to connect as the pc doesnt recognise it. Try turning it off by the function button then on again, or check your notebook settings in the power options, as they are able to turn both bluetooth and wireless connections off to save power.

Solution to the above problem: Install the newest software for BT....note that a new driver will also be installed. Reboot and the fix is done. This fix is for the Toshiba Qosmio x500. It may also function for other laptops.

Note: Once the re-boot is complete, ya will have to run the BT settings. Make sure all your BT dependable harware is turned on!

How/where do I enter pairing code?

When you want a bluetooth device to connect to your computer's bluetooth receiver, you have to set up the 'password' (which you decide) on both your PC/laptop AND your external device (e.g. BT enabled mobile phone). Generally on the PC/laptop this will be via the drop down menus got by right clicking the BT symbol on your desktop and selecting 'properties' (or via the start menu listing for BT device etc). Then for example your mobile phone's BT menu, via its settings. Do this for each external device. Sometimes devices come with a preset passkey/pairing code which can be a default of 0000. Consult device documents. If the device has no preset then set it up to be the same as the one you set for your PC BT receiver. Test the link by sending (TX) a file to the external device & vice versa (receiving device must be set to receive FIRST)

Remote speakers don't work

Dear User,

Are you referring to playing music from another device (mobile phone) into the speakers of your laptop or vice versa?

Is yes then you must first switch on the Bluetooth on your laptop as well as mobile, if playing from phone you send to use the option play via Bluetooth in the phone, simultaneously accept the pop up options as yes on the PC to enable the wireless play.

If playing from PC to wireless speakers of mobile then right click on the on the bluetooth icon near the system date, select quick connect>> hand free audio/stereo audio/audio gateway as applicable>> find devices in range and select to play, also simultaneously accept any notifications if displayed on the phone.
