Toshiba Satellite - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support


Hi,

you need to upen up your toshiba, and disconnect the internal battery, not the big one. Or, maybe a simpler method - call toshiba to check if there is a master password from them... :-)

Available RAM is very important for speeding up your laptop while surfing. Check your available RAM by:

  1. Starting the Task Manager (Right click on taskbar and select it)
  2. Select the Performance Tab
  3. Compare the Physical Memory vs Commit Charge numbers.

For example, my fast computer has 3600 megs of total physical memory compared to a commit charge of 1200 megs. Meanwhile, my older, slow computer has only 650 megs of total physical memory with a commit charge of 1400 megs. This means the slow computer is always making 'pretend' memory from hard drive space, and that is why it is so slow. This is most likely the case with your computer as well.

I hope that helps.

Hi,

Ok - few things to clarify first:

When you say "it connects" what do you mean? Do you open internet explorer and can browse the net without problem?

You Pick up Wifi connections - make sure you pick the correct one to connect to and ensure that you use the correct Password.

If all the above are working then make sure the Laptop is rebooted when you attempt to connect to wifi. Msn has problems when it can not resolve correct IP address - rebooting the machine should fix that.

Or the connection speed is too slow - which these days can still happen.

Finally, Get the full error message from msn and type it into google. Guide yourself to the Microsoft pages with the correct solution.

So few things to clarify and few things to test out.

I hope this helps, don't forget to rate my solution.

Thanks.

HI,

Follow this steps:

  1. Restart your computer.
  2. When the machine first starts again it will generally list some equipment that is installed in your machine, amount of memory, hard drives installed etc. At this point you should gently tap the F8 key repeatedly until you are presented with a Windows XP Advanced Options menu.
  3. Select the option for Safe Mode using the arrow keys.
  4. Then press enter on your keyboard to boot into Safe Mode.
  5. Do whatever tasks you require and when you are done reboot to boot back into normal mode.
I Hope it helped.

you can try a couple of things, on the back of the router is a small reset button, you will need a pen or pencil to push this button, hold it in for 10 sec. or so, until the router resets, and try to connect then, or unplug router, leave off for 10-15 sec. plug back in and wait fir it to reset this way, or a more involved way is to go to your DOS or command prompt window, type in this as follows

ipconfig /release

(wait a few seconds for this to do its thing)

ipconfig /renew
(if this doesnt work ask your parents if they put a block on the router)

What causes Error 0x80070057

# Windows Update simply has an issue with your "SoftwareDistribution" folder.

# This appears to be an issue with the program Netop which enters a driver entry into the enum\root\unknown key in the registry.

# You have old versions of OKI drivers installed.


To resolve this error, use one of the following methods:

Resolution Suggestion One:

# Try renaming the SoftwareDistribution folder:


Click Start, Choose Run.

In the Run box, type: services.msc

Click OK.

Right-click the Automatic Updates service.

Click Stop.

Stopping the service will take a moment.

Now rename the "SoftwareDistribution" folder:

a) Click Start, click Run, type

%systemroot%

...and then click OK.

b) Right-click the SoftwareDistribution folder, and then click Rename.

c) Type SoftwareDistribution.old and then press ENTER to rename this folder.


Now click Start, and choose Run.

In the Run box, type: services.msc

Click OK.

Right-click the Automatic Updates service.

Click Start.

Starting the service will take a moment.

NB - You will lose your update download history but this is not that important compared to not being anle to download the updates!

Now Try WU website again.


Resolution Suggestion Two:

# Customer will see error 0x800A138F when scanning for updates, but the Windows Update.log file will show error 0x80070057:

This appears to be an issue with the program Netop which enters a driver entry into the enum\root\unknown key in the registry.

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\Class\
{63C35530-D3DF-11D3-8F5D-0060B0A3612B}\0000]
"ProviderName"="Danware Data A/S"
"DriverDesc"="NetOp Driver 3 ver. 7.00 (2002014)"
"DriverDate"="Jan 14 2002"
"DriverVer"="7.00 (2002014)"
"MatchingDeviceId"="danware_netop_driver3"

Both the DriverDate and DriverVer are not formatted properly

Visit http://www.netop.com/tech/download/fix/fixwinup.exe
and run this executable If you are running the Netop software.

(NB - Sadly this file has now been removed from their website.)

------------------------------

Resolution Suggestion Three:

# Update drivers for your OKI device:

Typically folk complain of problems with OKI B4300 drivers and OKI Page 14ex drivers installed...

Visit http://www.oki.com and update your device drivers.

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.

There is problem on your DVD or software which u have install that does not support the file.Most probably VLC is the only media player which can give large support for media files.Please download and install vlc media player.

Toshiba... • Answered on Apr 07, 2020


hi, I think this may help. what you need to do first of all is change the default player for DVD's from Toshiba Video Player to Windows Media Player, cant remember off hand how to do that but should be in manual, but try this. go to windows control panel, select 'Default Programs' and click on it, then select 1st option 'Set Your Default Programs' a list of all programs will come up, look for Windows Media Player and click on it, then choose one of the options on the right. The top one sets as default, the bottom one allows you to set file types to open with the program. this should work as it is telling your system to launch that program for DVD's etc, If you cant find your control panel, simply click Start and type it in the little box that appears just above it.hope this helps

If its a music cd that you want to use on computers, cars, cd players etc.

A normal CD-R should do fine. Some devices might want a special, Music CD-R Like this http://www.sears.com/shc/s/p_10153_12605_00396055000P?vName=Computers%20&%20Electronics&cName=HomeTheater&Audio&sName=Accessories&psid=FROOGLE01&sid=IDx20070921x00003a

Almost any cd will do, depends mostly on what it will be used / listened on.

To burn cd/dvd you have to check :

1. Your laptop cd/dvd drive have what capability:
- cd writer = only burn cd
- cd writer/dvd reader(combo) = still only burn cd
- dvd writer = can burn cd, dvd single layer(4GB)
- dvd DL writer = can burn cd and dvd single 4GB and dual layer 8GB.
Other than those, is not possible.

2. Must have burn apps named:
- Nero
- Alcohol 120%
- other. search internet.

If you have them then using the apps to burn, just read the manual.

Koam114 is in Korean. I don't understand :)
But If you want songs from website, you should download it first.
Unless the site is giving you a step by step how to burn songs directly to your cd/dvd.
Once downloaded, would be easier to burn to cd/dvd.

Hi pedroza69...
Make sure you have some softwear on your computer that plays DVD's...
If you do not then you can download a free player at the following website.
