I have a Toshiba Satellite m645 with Windows 10. I'm seriously trying everything just to access the UEFI/BIOS settings on this computer. I know that you have to go to Update & Security and reboot through the advanced settings. Then you click troubleshoot and in that menu should hold a uefi settings option but my computer just doesn't and I'm not able to press esc/f2 on startup to access bios either because that simply doesn't work. Why don't I have a uefi settings option?
my Toshiba Satellite has Windows 10 and it shows that it's connected to the internet though when i try and run chrome it say's it's not connected when i run steam it say's it cannot connect to the steam network.
In windows 7 I could play a DVD in the media player, can't make it work in Windows10? Have some YouTube Video's and they play in Media Player but can't get DVD to play. Don't see in the player where I can go to the DVD Drive ?
why windows media player 12 wont play YouTube video's, it plays the audio side but not the video of it..I had windows media player 11 in before the windows 10 update and now media player wont play the videos only audio.
Since updating my Hewlett Packard 700-060envy desktop my HP DH16AC-SHR player will not play any video content. It displays text material OK, just NO video content. The device worked fine until installing WIN10 update 1511-10586.71.
Trying to play a movie off of my E: drive and it plays with good audio and video for about 3 seconds. Then it starts acting like it's buffering from the internet and pausing for several seconds before playing again...ultimately crashing the program with an error message telling me to contact the maker of my Xbox for support. This is a PC I built without scavenging XBoxes or any other video game consoles, even the dust that ended up in the case is original. Why the hell does it think I need to contact Xbox.com in order to solve this problem? Further more, this movie has been on my hard drive for years and hasn't had problems playing until Windows 10.
The exact text of the error is here:
Please try again. If the problem continues, visit Xbox.com to check for guidance.
I have a Toshiba Satellite S55-A5294 laptop computer. It is running Windows 10. I had the drive encrypted using Jetico's BestCrypt full disk encryption.
Several weeks ago, I was using Windows, put the computer to sleep, and when I came back an hour later and woke it up, I got the "Preparing Automatic Repair" screen. This was followed by a message that automatic repair was unsuccessful. This problem has happened in the past. In the past, it was the result of a Windows update overwriting the BestCrypt bootloader (BestCrypt encrypts the system partition, so it has to have its own pre-environment password prompt, which can then pass to the mounted system). However, this time it wasn't the case.
As it turned out, I had a corrupted volume. I was able to recover my data. I pulled the hard drive out of the Toshiba computer, put it in a USB enclosure, and connected it to a Lenovo Thinkpad E530, also running Windows 10. In this configuration, I was able to decrypt the drive, and access my data.
I restarted my Lenovo and forgot to disconnect the Toshiba's hard drive. The Lenovo booted right up, into the Toshiba's desktop. I backed up my data, and, for good measure, made a disk image of the whole thing.
I pulled the drive out of the enclosure, and reconnected it to the Toshiba, from which it originally came. When I turn it on, however, I get a BSOD informing me that I have an error:
INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE, and the computer then automatically restarts. Upon restart, I receive either the same thing, or a "Preparing Automatic Repair" screen, which then tells me that my computer failed to boot, and suggests a restart. There is also the option for advanced troubleshooting. If I restart, I get locked into the same loop.
I am still able, however, to pull the drive out of that computer, and boot it up when it's attached to my other computer.
I tried connecting the drive to the Toshiba (the original computer from which it came) via the USB enclosure, and I still get the same errors. The Toshiba is able, however, to boot a Linux Live USB.
I know that the drive is bootable. And I know that the Toshiba is willing to boot. They just won't play together.
I ran chkdsk on the system volume, and found no errors. I tried using the Repair option on a Windows 10 installation USB, and didn't really get anywhere.
why the same disk would be bootable on one computer, and not bootable on the other.
Ever since I upgraded from Win 7 to Win 10 my laptop (Satellite A505 S6005) will go into sleep mode without issue but refuses to wake up up. I have to do a hard power down in order for it to turn off. I've checked my power settings and everything is the same as it was for Win 7.
I found online that it seems to be a possible issue with the Intel Management Engine Interface not being the right version. I'm currently on driver version 188.8.131.529. I've tried to upgrade it to a new version but Windows states I have the best version for my PC. Have also tried via Toshiba and Intel sites for a new version with no success. How to get a new driver version?
I read through the forum and used the instructions given using an external mouse to sort he touchpad issue out. But my clickers won't work. It's a Toshiba satellite C50D-B-120 laptop and prior to his I had windows 8.1.
I have a Toshiba Laptop with an AMD processor, 4gb Ram, 500 Gig hard drive with 366gb free. It is running very slow. I have over 70 processes running. I'm pretty sure I don't need that many but I don't know what is needed and what is not. I've tried to copy the list but can't figure out how to do it. I'm using open office.
I was attempting to upgrade my Toshiba 8.1 to windows 10 and was offered to update bios and Atheros Wireless Lan Driver. I mistakenly did both updates and now have lost the Lan Driver. I obtained usb system recovery from Toshiba but when I attempt to recover, the Atheros Wireless Lan Driver wont and I am stuck. Is there anyway that I can reinstall the driver and finish recovering my pc? I have download the driver onto my usb.
The camera on my Toshiba S50-B laptop worked fine when on the original Windows 8.1 but doesn't work now that I have upgraded to Windows 10. It says "Something went wrong - make sure your camera is connected and not being used by another application". I have tried everything I know of and find no reason. Is there another driver required or ...? I cannot even find the camera.
Had a customer present their laptop for repair following Windows 10 upgrade, so wanted to post the solution here.
The device, a Toshiba Satelite Pro Touchpad had an issue where it appeared to hang on startup following upgrade to Windows 10. Investigation revealed that the issue was actually the Touchpad was becoming disabled due to a problem with the ELAN driver that Windows 10 had installed. I wound the driver back and everything was fine, then Windows 10 decided it had a better version of the driver and installed the bad one again. Solution was to wind back the driver again from 15.8.x.x to 13.8.x.x and disable automatic update of drivers to stop it being replaced again.
Clearly it is not ideal to disable the driver update capability, however if there are not sufficient checks and balances to ensure that the right driver is being installed it is going to create more problems that it is worth.
Microsoft Suggestion: It may be an idea to allow disabling driver update for individual driver basis.
