Jan 23, 2009
I have Toshiba Satellite L305-S5907 laptop with Microsoft Vista.I tried installing Fedora 9 on my laptop but GUI is not loading on it,system will try to load GUI and showing different colors of lines and screen blinks continously , but desktop is not loading .
Laptop Monitor specification is 15.4� diagonal widescreen TruBrite� TFT LCD display at resolu1280x800 native resolution (WXGA).Except GUI everything is working fine.I tried startx command but then also same scenario is happening. Graphics details: Mobile Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500M with 128MB-1759MB dynamically allocated shared graphics memory
I can't get Redhat (Fedora) to mount my usb Flashdrive. My windows O/S has no problem with my usb flashdrive. I can mount my CD Drive and my Floppy drive. My mouse is pluged into one of my usb slots and it works. What am I doing wrong.
get the wireless working on my mum's laptop as having to plug it into the router everytime she wants to go online is now becoming an issue for her. I recently upgraded it from 8.04 to 9.04. Ive tried using the Windows Wireless Driver option in System - Admin but to no avail.

I have recently installed Ubuntu on my Toshiba Satellite A25-S207 Laptop. Everything runs great except that the resolution will not go above 800x600. I had this problem before on the same laptop and was able to fix it but cannot find the fix now (I had to wipe my laptop clean in order to remove some pesky Windows partitions and reinstall Ubuntu) I have found several "fixes" but none work. I tried the one below as well as it applies almost perfectly to my problem
"I just installed the latest ubuntu 10.04 on a Toshiba-Tecra having "Trident Microsystems Cyberblade XP4m32" Monitor. After install resolution is defaulted to 800x600. I followed a method advised in some threads (arount xrandr and cvt) to increase the size (my laptop works with 1024x768 under XP). This was done OK and I obtained the resolution 1024X768 appearing in the drop list resolution options of the Monitor preferences but when I select the option if fails. Alternatively, when I execute $ xrandr --output default --mode 1024x768_60.00 i got the message "xrandr : screen cannot be larger than 800x600 (desired size 1024X76
I also saw a possible fix proposing to add "HorizSync 31.50-48.00" in Xorg.conf but I then I DO NOT have such a file in my /etc/x11/ after ubuntu install (supposing that this will fix my problem !!!)
Boot into recovery mode, when you get to the command line type:
sudo Xorg -configurewhich will create a default /etc/X11/xorg.conf file. Add the lines: HorizSync 31.0 - 70.0 VertRefresh 40.0 - 75.0to the Monitor section then reboot."
However when I entered the "sudo Xorg -configure" line my computer spit back saying that "sudo" is not an acceptable command
I would like to know if it is normal to experience 10MB/s data transfer rates during copying between partitions on my local hard drives (Toshiba 250GB 5400rpm SATA) while having three times faster (30MB/s) transfer rates between local partitions and USB drives (Kingston 8GB).
I figured I would begin delving more into the open source environment by dual booting fedora and windows xp pro. Windows xp WAS already installed on the laptop, so I went through the steps to get fedora installed. Everything appeared to be working fine. Fedora came up nicely, and then I tried to boot windows (using grub boot loader). The Windows splash screen appeared, making me think things were fine. But suddenly the screen went black, with the computer going through a restart. This happened every time I tried to boot windows. So I began scouring the web to see if someone had a similar problem. I tried numerous things, but none of them worked. Of them, this appears to have gotten me farther than anything:
Going into grub I changed: rootnoverify (hd0,0) to: rootnoverify (hd0,1)
Everything else remained the same. When I made this change, the computer went through Ramdisk, and the Toshiba recovery tool. Then two dialog windows appear in secession.
The first stating: Windows cannot find c:inerrordialog.exe The second stating: Windows cannot find c:inootpriority.exe
I stumbled across information about the recovery console tool. Well, since my laptop has an OEM installation, there is no recovery console tool. But eventually, I was able to find one that I could download. (In case anyone is interested, here is the link for the [URL]
I burned the image to a cd on another computer, and then attempted to boot to the console from the cd/dvd drive on the laptop. But the system crashed, with the customary blue screen. I was hoping to be able to execute the chdsk command to repair whatever damage there might be, but this problem occurs each time I run the image. Fortunately I backed stuff up before this. I'm just hoping that I won't have to go through the ugly process of restoring everything because it's a lot to restore.
I bought this laptop several years ago. It had Vista. Just long enough for me to download SUSe, nuke and pave the HD and install Linux. Recently I upgraded from 1 GB to 4 GB of RAM, the maximum that is allowed given the motherboard (based on from what I am able to learn the Intel 945 chipset).
After upgrading to 4 GB, the machine (according to "My Computer") only sees 2.9 GB. I understand that under an earlier version of the BIOS that the machine would not recognize the RAM correctly. Additionally the "My Computer" page lists the display as "Intel 945GM". My problem is that I can find no Linux utility to flash the BIOS on this machine-- Toshiba only provides the BIOS included in an .exe file for either XP or Vista. I am hesitant to use the BIOS for the Intel 945 series motherboards from their site.
I've been trying to figure this out all day, I just got a new Toshiba Satellite E205, and I can't install ubuntu or any other linux os out there that I have tried so far. I've read a lot of things on the forms about changing out the different options but nothing I've tried worked such as graffic safe mode, deleting the quite and whatever the other command was off the end. The closest I've got was when I tried with Debian in text mode I could at least see what was happening, and according to that it can't find my dvd-rom I checked the dev but I can't find it either. So any help what so ever would be appreciated, I really don't want to be stuck with windows 7!BTW, it comes with the following: intel graphics media accelerator HD ACPI x64 DVDRAM ga10f
I'm having a bit of difficulty installing Ubuntu on a Toshiba Sattelite T230 -01Y. Note: if any particulars about this machine are required, I'll be happy to add them. This laptop does not have an optical drive: no DVD, no CD-ROM. I used a USB memory RAM stick (4Gb) upon which I've installed Maverick through System > Administration > Startup Disk Creator. The installation seems to work well. I cut the hard disk (roughly 250 Gb) into 3 partitions: 20 Gb for the system, 2 Gb for Swap, the remainder for /home. The whole setup works as it would on any other PC. Once the setup is complete and the system reboots, it never actually seems to get GDM going. I'm left at a command prompt login. If I leave it long enough (a few seconds), I get a listing that appears over the login prompt, spewing info at me. It sort of resembles the following:
and ch:2, ch:3 to ch:13. Eventually, regardless whether I use the keyboard or not, some kind of screensaver sets in and I can't see any more input-output.If I hit the power button, oddly: the background goes purple displaying CLI characters momentarily, notifying me that the system's going to halt... and the system halts.Any way I can get this going? Do I require the Optical Drive instead of using USB to install the system? I'm afraid all NTFS partitions have been wiped away as the client insisted they wanted nothing to do with Microsoft products.Note: when installing I ask it not to update during the installation as I've had poor results with that. If you feel I should give that a try, I will.
im about to do a major upgrade to another laptop. is there anyway i can backup my entire system, settings and everything, and put them on a usb so i can do a live install but with my customized version instead of the base one? right now im running 10.4 on a latitude 610. upgrading to toshiba satellite
I have two brand new (less than 60 days old) Toshiba Satellite L675D-S7016. Neither will boot the live CD of 10.10-64, but the CDs work in other computers and I have installed successfully half a dozen times off of them. I get the initial text across the top, there is a momentary splash of the Ubuntu logo with a little battery symbol, then the screen goes black with a little flashing prompt in the upper left. That is all it will do until I hard reboot it. I made the USB boot off the CD and tried that. It never gets beyond the initial text "syslinux 3.82 2009-06-09 EBIOS ..etc".
I re-installed 10.04, replacing 10.10 and everything works fine on both laptops. Several hours later (something really needs to be done about how long it takes to upgrade) when the new upgrade is complete, it will no longer boot. Of course the default GRUB menu choice is 2.6.35-22. I assume this is the kernel number. If I pick 2.6.32-25 it boots just fine and "about" says that I am running 10.10, so I am just baffled. I know how to set GRUB to boot of this option by default, but i would like to fix the problem, not put a band-aid on it.
In case someone else has this model, it uses an audio chipset I have not seen. Win 7 reports it as "Realtek High Def audio" AND "ATI HDMI Audio". Ubuntu lists two, one generic Internal Audio, the other RS880 audio device[Radeon HD 4200]. What makes it odd is that if you want to use the head phone jack to connect to an external sound system, you have to turn it on with software inside Windows. In Ubuntu, there is no corresponding software so when you plug something in, the internal speakers turn off, but nothing comes out of the headphone jack.
Today I bought a Toshiba Satellite Pro L510 and after much screwing around I have Ubuntu installed kinda. Installing Ubuntu is generally a breeze and I have three machines running 8.04 pretty much rock solid unless I fiddle with 'em, but; I download and boot from a 10.04 LTS cd and gets to the new purpley splash with a couple of icons down the bottom, then goes into endless full-screen terminal scrolling and the computer heats up. So I tried 8.04. Not much different. I try 10.10; same as 10.04 LTS. So I try the alternate installer rather than desktop but that crashes too. I finally find a website suggesting to run the alternate installer, hit F4 and choose 'failsafe graphics' (which wasn't there for me) and then F6 and select everything but 'Free Software Only'. Hey, worked and I get through the text based installer no problem, restart and I'm looking at a grub2 menu and can select Windows 7 or Ubuntu. Cool.
So I select Ubuntu but goes to a text based, command line Ubuntu. Hasn't loaded a desktop. I try to 'sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop' from the CD but after much scrolling tells me not there. It is telling me I have umpteen updates I should get and asking me to insert the CD, which is fine as the machine is not online, but then can't find what it's looking for.
So I've gotten this far. My router is not set as a DHCP server; all machines have static IPs which is why this new one is not online. Would the simple answer be to plug it directly into the internet gateway router and do the updates from there, ubuntu-desktop included?
I'm trying without success to install 10.10 on a Toshiba Satellite A665 from a USB drive. It will start to boot then gets stuck on: NET: Registered protocol family 1 I've tried different iso's and different usb drives.Other threads have mentioned that setting acpi=off might work but
I just bought a Toshiba Satellite P745-S4217 to replace my Dell 1420 that had the NVIDIA defect. I would like to replace winblows 7 with ubuntu soon but before I do I want to see if there are any issue with the compatibility of ubuntu and this Toshiba that need to be addressed before I dive in so that it will be a faster and easier transition.
F13: wireless is disabled - running lspci shows a realtek ethernet 8101/8102 - the wired ethernet works fine but not the wireless. Have searched google but they say the realtek drivers should be in the kernel since 2008.are there other commands that can be typed to try to enable the wireless ?
Let me preface this by stating that I am a very new Linux user (newb) so I could be missing something very obvious. I have a Toshiba Satellite L645D-S4056 and recently installed Fedora 14 (64-bit GNOME) with all sorts of updates and software. I'm working my way through all of the hardware to get it all running properly. I figured out how to get the RealTek wireless-n adapter working.
The webcam is working even with Skype which is tricky on the 64-bit version. At the moment, my touchpad doesn't work. I see a lot of articles online about the touchpad not double-tapping, but mine doesn't work at all. I've been using a mouse for all my GUI stuff. I went to SYSTEM --> PREFERENCES --> MOUSE and selected the touchpad tab, but I can't figure out how to make it work.
I've this issue where my audio on the laptop which is toshiba satelite p100 doesn't work after i installed fedora 12. I installed vlc media player but still can't get audio working!! For general info my audio driver is: Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801G (ICH7 Family) High Definition Audio Controller (rev 02)
I tried to install Ubuntu on a Toshiba laptop today. When I tried booting with Lynx, threw out a bunch of errors about kernel threads. When I tried Karmic, it would only boot with Safe Graphics (everything else hangs the system), but nothing is ever displayed. I hear the Ubuntu start-up sound but the display stays blank. Does anyone have any advice on installing Ubuntu on this system?

I just bought a Toshiba Satellite L650-BT2N23 laptop (i3-core, 4GB RAM) and have Fedora 14 installed on it along with Windows7 64 bit. I am having a hard time getting linux to detect the battery, even when I am running on battery power.
The battery appears as not present and the power management applet always indicates that the laptop is running on AC.
I tried setting acpi=on and acpi=force in grub.conf, but dint make any difference.

I installed Fedora 14 on a Toshiba Satellite L650-18X laptop. The on board speakers work fine but when I try to connect external headphones, the sound still comes from the on board speakers and not from the connected headphones. Also the microphone jack doesn't work.
As I searched the web for possible solutions I think the problem is related to the Alsa sound driver. I kindly ask if someone with experience could share details regarding the Alsa configuration for this particular sound driver in Fedora 14 in order to solve this issue.

I have dell B130 with Ubuntu Karmic on it, and I like it. I recently purchased a new laptop, a Toshiba Satellite A505-S6033. I've been trying for about 24 hours to get Ubuntu 10.04 64 bit on this computer, but to no avail. I've seen some people say that they get error messages. When the cd loads up, it comes to the main page (run ubuntu off disk, install ubuntu, check for errors, etc.) Anyway, when I click to run it off the disk, the scren goes blank. The CD spins, but nothing happens from then on. I've tried a 32 bit version of Ubuntu 10.04, but the same thing happens. Just for experimentation, I tried xPud on it, and xpud works fine.
i recently installed ubuntu 11.04 on my toshiba satellite p200-1k8 laptop; with ubuntu the fans were always running at full blast and the laptop would overheat and shut down even though i wasn't using the computer for anything intensive, e.g.just browsing videos. i installed opensuse thinking the problem might have been with ubuntu but in suse as well the fans seem to be running full blast right from start up and the laptop getting quite hot. i've now learnt this is a generic problem with toshiba satellite laptops and linux, something to do with acpi and possibly the ati graphics cards? my gpu is an ati mobility radeon 2600 if thats any help. in windows (which i was last using two days ago) the fans and heat from the laptop were nowhere near this noticeable and i didn't experience this overheating problem just browsing the web.
could anyone recommend any fixes to better the heat management of my laptop on linux (apart from cleaning the fan which i've already tried )?
After updating the repositories, a long update took place... and after completed, my sound card was disabled. I had to reboot the system to have it working again, yet... mp3, mp4, avi files cannot be reproduced at all.
I just want to get rid of Win 7... and I find OpenSuse very stable, solid and friendly. I just installed version 11.2 in this old Toshiba Satellite, as a pilot installation prior the final one in a desktop PC.
