Windows 8.1 Toshiba Satellite - Unable To Adjust Screen Brightness

Aug 24, 2014

I have a Windows 8.1 Toshiba Satellite L875D-S7332, with a AMD A6-4400M APU processor with integrated graphics. My display adapter, according to device manager, is a AMD Radeon HD 7520G.

Now, my problem is that I'm unable to adjust the screen brightness of my laptop. I haven't made any recent changes, and I noticed this about a week or so ago(I don't typically change my laptop brightness, so this could have been happening for longer). In the mean time, I've tried rolling back my display drivers, with no success, and also updating to the latest driver set, which has also not worked?

Maintenance :: Windows 8 - Toshiba Satellite Will Not Automatically Standby / Hibernate

Mar 2, 2014

I have a Toshiba Satellite notebook less than six months old and running with Windows 8 and latest updates to date. My Toshiba Satellite will not auto. standy/hibernate, it will only do it by me executing it manually.

-All device drivers are up-to-date, according to Toshiba download site, including graphics driver.
-All USB devices have been un-plugged.
-I have done a re-boot of the notebook, several times, and it made no difference.
-I have turned on and off the screen saver settings.
-I have changed and changed back the power scheme settings.
-I ran the powercfg -requests tool, and it reported no problem.

I noticed when I ran the Toshiba hardware troubleshooter, it said to turn off the screen saver, but it was already turned off. I noticed in searching the net that other Toshiba users say they have noticed this too.

I also noticed that when I choose my photos as a screen-saver they take a long time to run, or sometimes not at all.

Toshiba Satellite C855D - Recovery With Different Computer Disc

Jun 27, 2014

I am working on a Toshiba Satellite C855D (Windows 8 originally) that would not boot. I tried the repair, restore, and recovery but that did not work. So I used a recovery disc from a Toshiba C55D (Windows 8.1) and got it working. The problem I have is the c855d now shows as the c55d. My question is does the product key come from the motherboard or the software.

Toshiba Satellite Laptop - Can't Change BIOS / Boot Priority

Aug 22, 2014

I have just bought a Toshiba Satellite laptop. Before installing everything I wanted to partition the hard drive, for various reasons. To do so, I installed EASUS Pro. (Have used that many, many times on my W7 PC without a problem.) Anyway, it went away to resize the boot partition and now I can't do a !@#%$ing thing. The laptop boots to a 0xc0000225 error screen, and that's it. I entered the UEFI Firmware Settings, and managed to firstly change the fn keys to standard (YAY!) but I CANNOT use the F10 key to save the boot priority to CD/DVD or anything else, so I have nowhere to go from there.

Graphic Cards :: Display Resolution Only 1028x600 On Toshiba Satellite A100

Mar 11, 2013

I upgraded Toshiba Satellite A100-998 with XP Media Centre to Windows 8 Pro. Before upgrade the screen resolution was 1280x800 on a NVIDIA GeForce Go7300 graphics adapter.

Windows 8 pro upgrade has installed only the Standard Microsoft Graphics Adapter of 1028x600. I have searched registry for Display1_DownScalingSupported key but it does not exist.

I have attempted to find another driver on the NVIDIA and Toshiba web support but I am unsure what would be the right one. The laptop clearly can support the higher resolution, how to resolve the issue.

Windows 8 Administrator Password Reset?

Jul 21, 2014

I had occasion to employ Toshiba to remove some malware from a Toshiba Satellite laptop. Some time later I needed to uninstall an Ap and discovered there was need for a Supervisor password. I am assuming the tech set that up (why?) as I had installed considerable Aps earlier without needing a password. How can I reset the Administrator password to none required?

Accounts :: Windows 8.1 Pro X64 - Password Retrieval / Reset

Dec 26, 2013

Win 8.1 Pro x64. All of a sudden SyncBack Pro is asking me for a Windows password when I go to change the backup schedule. I thought I knew it, but it and all the variations I can think of have failed and I can't find the paper I wrote it down on at the moment. I thought I was in a local/admin account as I was in Win 8, but UA shows this as a Admin account, PW protected. That's probably why there is no "Create a Password Reset Disk" option showing on the left or anywhere on my User Accounts page (vs. Brink's tutorial). See screenshot.

Not Able To Reset Password On Windows Easy Transfer

Mar 15, 2014

I have recently found a Windows Easy Transfer file on a USB Stick. It was created by Christmas time, it is before the computer (Hard Drive) broke. So, I luckily found this on USB Stick in one of my drawers from last Christmas.

Now I am currently have a new tower PC which it has Windows 8.1 in it and it works fine. Just that my old tower has been upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 8.1 (trial) for a while from October 2013.

But, I can't remember what the password was - so I am struggling to know what the password was. I am just worried that I cannot reset the password on the Windows Easy Transfer, it has all of my lovely photos and videos and also my work documents. The thing is that I cannot get access to the old PC, because it is gone. But, I have got my stuff in my Windows Easy Transfer file - just that I can't remember the password.

Is there a way to get to my password out by doing something?

Accounts :: Windows 8.1 - Non-Admin Standard User Able To Reset PC

Jul 25, 2014

I'm setting up a stolen laptop tracking software and want to leave a standard/non-admin user account open for a potential thief. The software requires someone to log in and connect to the internet in order to start tracking. So if I only have my personal admin account password protected, I will be out of luck. The problem is that while logged in as a standard user I am able to access recovery options. From there I can use advance startup and proceed to reset my pc. If a thief logs in and resets my pc right away, I will have no way of tracking them. I have windows 8.1 standard and have not been able to find any way from restricting access to the recovery options.

Dell :: How To Reset Win8 Password

Mar 15, 2013

I bought a new Inspiron with Win 8 a couple days ago. I was setting it up today and put in a my user name and password. I tried connecting to a network share and it wasn't working. I realized that I had my Windows user name spelled wrong. I went and changed the name then tried again and it still wouldn't work. I rebooted to see if it would work. When I got to the login screen the corrected name was there but it would not accept my password. I thought maybe I'd not entered the password I thought I did and tried several variations and could not get it to work.

I did not create a password recovery disk. I did not burn the Dell system recovery disks. I literally set up Windows for the first time, tried connecting to network shares, rebooted and now cannot get into the computer.  I am stumped. I cannot seem to find the way to get to the Windows recovery after rebooting. I read about how I could get to safe mode from there but I can't find it. I reboot, hit shift+F8 and can get into some Dell hardware diagnostics utility and if I exit I can hit F12 and get some boot options none of which seem to do me any good. 

I have no problem with reinstalling Windows but I don't have a recovery disk. I'm about this close to returning it to the store. What do I do?
