Toshiba Satellite - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support
Can not booting
2007 PC it is
so is not too old.
the new PC in the box (NIB) the papers in the box
told you to charge it first. for 12 hour , or over night
did you do that?
both batteries, in the PC must be charged first;
and the big battery loves to fail if abused. even 2 years old .
abuse is over or under charged.
most times modern PCs avoid the overcharge act.
but under charged is easy, just throw the PC in a closet fore 2 years and bingo, battery is bad or degraded huge.

How do I lock my Toshiba Satellite L500 laptop
You can put a Power On Password of your Toshiba, this will prevent unauthorized access to youe laptop. If you forget this password then you will have problems unlocking your Toshiba.
The Power on Password is configured in the BIOS under sercuity settings.
You can also put a password on the hard drive and if your Toshiba is stolen and they remove the hard drive out of your Toshiba into another laptop they cannot get access to the data on your hard drive.
NOTE if you forget the hard disk password you will not be able to access your hard disk.

I DONT HAVE SOUND ( AUDIO OUTPUT DEVICE IS NOT INSTALLED)
Check out either the audio drivers (start > settings > control panel > system > hardware > device manager >check for exclamation mark in front of the audio device) and update if nessersary,
Or the audio mixer levels from the audio related icon at the taskbar. In case it's missing go start > settings > control panel >sound devices > mark the checkbox "volume icon at the taskbar"
After the above you will be able to hear audio from your computer but in case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post.
Thanks and regards

Cannot record sound
Normally every Lap is coming wit internal mic; so
1- Simply check your mic is mute or not
2 - Check your mic volume
3 - Use sound recorder that comings with windows (just record & play)
4 - Use an external MIC (known as working) with sound recorder
5 - Check in control panel->sound and audio device --> default recording device and Voice recoding device as your system’s built-in audio device (some times it’s changing when we installing b-tooth deice)
6 - Check device manager --> under sound audio controller for any issues
7 – Uninstall & install completely your Audio Device driver with default settings.
** If you didn’t solve your prob; my advice is take your lap to a good technician with component level Repair skills.
Thank you & Best Regards

Play dvd nothing - play s/d card (video) sound but no picture.
You need to update the dvd softwear. Check the default settings for playback of media,if it is set to windows media it won't work if you hav'nt installed the correct updates. Choose the Toshiba dvd player as the default player and it should work. If you prefer windows media then you can get the updated codecs from ' free-codecs.com ' Easier still,try uninstalling your windows media player and installing windows media 11, this will usually resolve the problem.

My Toshiba laptop keeps turning off randomly?
I had this problem for a LOONNGG time. I couldnt figure out what the heck was going on or why it was overheating. I almost resorted to buying a new computer, but thankfully I didnt. About 1am this morning it did it to me again. So i decided to clean the bottom and make sure it was clean. I cleaned it, and just out of curiousity, took apart the exhaust fan housing, and O. M. G. was there a TON of dust and junk in there. It took me about 45 minutes to clean it out thuroughly because I am not very computer savy when it comes to taking them apart and putting them back together correctly. But I would be my paycheck that if you took of your exaust fan housing, and then the individual covers for the fan and inspected the fans, and the exhaust ports themselves, you will find your problem. Since i cleaned it, it hasnt turned off once and the fans hardly run at all! I hope this helps guys!

Toshiba Satellite A205-S5804
Download the 8187b drivers from Realtek's site. You then need to go in and edit the .inf file to read like this:
;; IDs for 98SE/ME/2K/XP
%RTL8187B.DeviceDesc% = RTL8187B.ndi, USB\VID_0BDA&PID_8197&REV_0200
%RTL8187B.DeviceDesc% = RTL8187B.ndi, USB\VID_0BDA&PID_8189&REV_0200
After the edit, install as usual from the device manager.

What is rtl120.bpl. A box appeared whenever I
The error could be connected to the advanced system care. Have you uninstalled any protective software lately?
It would seem that as the computer is starting it is trying to load a program that is either corrupt or missing, generally a program like reg cleaner or other utility program.
If its a case you have removed a program, try installing it and see if that works.
Get another copy of the advanced sys care program and reinstall that.
If this doesn't work, get back to me.

Toshiba satellite a205 webcam says locked by another application
I don't know what exactly fixed the problem but I managed to fix it. I'm using a Toshiba Satellite A215 by the way.
Here's what I did
Control Panel >> System Maintenance >> Device Manager
Go to Imaging Devices and right-click "Chicony USB 2.0 Camera" and choose "Update Driver Software"
First I clicked on "Search automatically for updated driver software" but everything was already up to date. So then I went to "Browse my Computer for Driver Software" and then to "Let Me Pick from a List". I updated the USB Video Device and rebooted but that only made it worse I think. Then I tried updating one of the "Chicony USB 2.0 Camera"'s and that did the trick. Yey. So now my webcam works.
