Preferred Solution: Upgrading My Toshiba Satellite e55-a5114 Laptop

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

My questions are:

I. One or more of my USB ports are USB 3.0. How do I determine which are USB 2.0 and which are high-speed USB 3.0?Click to expand...

not hard, but mapping which slot on the box is v2 - v3 was my issue



II. Is there any reason that my BIOS won?t allow me to upgrade from my current 1TB HDD to a 2TB HDD I just bought and received in the mail?Click to expand...

that would work BUT you need a fresh install and don't forget the system drivers



III. What?s the best way for me to clone my current 1TB HDD onto my new 2TB HDD? I have a number of Disk utility apps on my computer already, but if you recommend something else, I?ll use it instead. Once it?s cloned, do I have to do anything special in order to get it to work? Or can I simply swap out the HDDs and it?ll boot right up? If I'm planning on cloning my current Windows 8.1 and putting some Linux distros on it, in what order should I clone & install?Click to expand...

This solves the prior question - - clone it. I would clone anyway possible and after the fact, resize the C: partition



IV. Can I add more RAM to my laptop even though the official website about my Toshiba Laptop specifically says ?MEMORY: 6GB DDR3L 1600MHz (Memory is not user replaceable)? If that?s just an idle warning, how much RAM can this computer take? What?s the upper-limit to the amount of RAM? How much would you recommend that would give a boost to speed but also inexpensive and made by a trustworthy?Click to expand...

not user replaceable means what it says - - it's sodered to the MB and there may not even be slots for memory



V. I?m going to make this new 2HD HDD run multiple OSes including Windows 8.1 and 1-4 Linux distros. How much space should I reserve for each Linux distro?s mountpoints? If I make one partition and label it as ?/home?, will all my Linux distros be able to use it? I?d really like to have quite a few different Linux OSes on this computer because I want to learn how to use it better!
Remember, you can only have FOUR primary extensions and within one you can have several Logical Prtns. Most Linux distros have a bootable CD to try-it before you install.

I tried to put a Netgear Card into the slot and it did not work so I went to Device Manager. It gave me a PCI ?. I dont know where to get a driver for the PCI slots because I dont know there names. What do I do? Please help???

Hi all!

I have tried to update to Windows 8 PRO with the DVD that comes with the laptop but cant achieve this.

I have made the changes in BIOS like document says (from CSM Boot to UEFI Boot and activate Secure Boot), started the laptop with the DVD but after running for a while, it stops and show a message saying something like there is not enough space in partition for writting the image o someting like that. Sorry because I didn't get the exact message. Any ideas about this?

Fortunately I did the Recover DVDs for restoring to Windows 7 but I'd like to run Windows 8 in the laptop.

Kind regards.

Javier.

A:Upgrading Toshiba Satellite PRO C to Windows 8 with DVD

If I?m not mistaken the message means that the partition does not provide enough space in order to install the Win 8 system.

I think you should format the partition before starting the system installation.
But this option should be provided while OS installation? I cannot say for sure which step should provide this option but this must be asked at the beginning of the installation?

A:Upgrading Toshiba Satellite Pro S500 CPU from i3 to i5 or i7

Best thing to do is choose a CPU that shipped with one of the other S500 PSSE0E models. That way you can be certain the BIOS supports it.
Some notebooks require a cooling system calibration after a different CPU is installed. An ASP can do the calibration.

Hi,
In the last step of the update, the program forced a reboot and after that it doesnt boot anymore. It doesnt even get to the boot manager.
I tried the repair console and it gave me this:
Name of the Event: SartupRepairOffline
Problem Signature 01: 6.1.7600.16385

Problem Signature 09: 3082
Saying that it cant be automatically repaired.
After some failed boots the boot manager appears and says this:
Status: 0xc000000f
Info: The boot selection failed because a required device is inaccesible
I have tried the cbdedit commands /fixboot etc. and such. My laptop is onlz 1 and a half zears old so im guessing it cant be because of the bios. Also the update advisor said i should update mz IDE drivers but there werent any updates (AI6K6BF2 IDE Controller)
Anz help would be greatly appreciated.

Also would like to extend battery life if you know anything about that. Yes I do want to update to Windows 7 when it comes out and if ya'll have any suggestions on which one of those I should get that would be appreciated too.And I would like to do all of this for under $200 to $300 (Windows 7 not included).

Hi all;

I am preparing to upgrade to Windows 7 & thinking of adding RAM on my Toshiba Satellite A210. It now has 2 - 512MB (1G) RAM. I need to find what amount would be compatible with my processor. There is nothing in the manual about upgrading. I am by no means an expert but can do some complicated maneuvers. Is there an 'easy' way to do this?

Any help appreciated.

A:Solved: Toshiba Satellite A210 - Upgrading RAM for Windows 7

The easy way is to find the technical spec sheet (usually pdf file) for your laptop on Toshiba's website or some other retailer. On the technical spec sheet, it should tell you the type of RAM and MAX RAM.

This is an example, but you need your exact make and model: http://reviews.cnet.com/laptops/toshiba-satellite-pro-a210/4507-3121_7-32701083.html

I tried a new power adapter cord, I installed new power jack and still no power and no lights. Right now i have the whole laptop disasemable, Also where can i buy a tester to check the motherboard and all the other compoents like the cpu, Heat sink, Memory chips, Especially the motherboard. If anybody can help it's you guys.

Thank you,

A:Toshiba Satellite Laptop

Although you do not say so

I tried a new power adapter cord, I installed new power jack and still no power and no lightsClick to expand...

and presuming the battery was flat and it could not therefore be tested on battery only without charging the same - I presume you did try a new POWER adapter, as against just the connecting cable and new power mini jack socket
Or at least test that you had an output from the adapter

The answer to the actual question is you cannot, there is no such thing as ONE tester for what you specify
The heat sink would not STOP it posting, even if it cut out as soon as it detected overheat on the processor

Presuming that it has more than one stick of ram, simply removing one and swopping over before of course you dismantled it was the test for that

However although a failed ram stick may stop it booting it would not stop the power led illuminating on the laptop

My opinion is, with no power led whatsoever and if you have eliminated power supply as first mentioned
capacitor failure on board on circuit that takes power from connections of jack.
It may of course NOT be so, but that is in my experience favourite

Just installed XP Pro on a friends Toshiba Satellite L30D PSLC0E and managed to find 'almost' all the drivers on the 'net.

However I still have a yellow question mark opposite SM Bus Controller in Device Manager. The owner has misplaced the original discs but I presume that as this machine previously had Vista that the discs probably wouldn't have had XP drivers anyway.

I'd suggest testing the hard drive.

In order to test the hard drive you can run one of the diagnostic programs below. The files, in ISO format, will need to be burned to a CD using a program that can burn CD image files (burnaware or imgburn).

Hi,

I have a 2 months old Toshiba Satellite laptop with windows 7. I tend to leave it plugged into the power socket when I leave home, when I return I find it started up !!!

It is just doing nothing, I just can see the adobe acrobat baloon asking me to install an update in the taskbar.

This happened twice. I have the wake up modem options disabled in the BIOS setting.

Any recommendations to why this is occuring?

A:Help-My Toshiba satellite laptop switches on alone !

You may wish to go into your power configuration settings and turn off other Wake On... settings.

Go into device manager and go through your various network components and any other devices you don't wish to be able to wake your computer (hard drive, etc). Leave your keyboard & mouse on unless you wish to use the power button to wake.

Start > Control Panel (All Items) > Device Manager

Right Click Each Item, Click Properties

Go to the Power Management Tab & Turn off "Allow this device to wake the computer"

From what I can tell, it looks like your ethernet/wireless is detecting an incoming/outgoing connection and waking itself in order to deal w/ that connection. If you want a simpler solution, just turn off automatic updates in Adobe & whatever else tends to wake your computer.
