  • 1. Toshiba satelite model # question
    It's a satellite A70 No recovery media is available so I need the drivers to install to a standard xp sp2 install. Toshiba website doesn't seem very helpfull. When going after drivers you get some drop down selectoprs to get to the drivers. type = portable ...yes easy family = A70 ...yes easy model = ???? this where it becomes impossible at least 8 different a70 models are listed none of which look anything like the "part number" or serial shown on the base of the unit.... How can I tell which set of drivers to use?? Its a pretty late model with a 3.33 ghz p4 256 mb ram etc etc machine id codes are: Product Satellite A70 Version PSA70A-0WF00W Serial Number 15185637K thanks in advance scul

WLAN for Toshiba 4600

Postby retsuhcs » Sun, 28 Dec 2003 09:51:35 GMT

The Satellite 4600 has a mini-PCI slot for a WLAN card, internal intenna,
and pre-installed drivers and client manager. My variety of the 4600 does
not come with the card itself; it is "ready".

Having just set up a home network I am looking at various ways of adding
WLAN to the 4600. The mini-PCI card for that model (and the Tecra 8200),
PA3070U-5MPC, seems to be long out of production.

Looking on eBay, I see another Toshiba card, PA3171U-1MPC, but know
nothing about its compatibility. Also, not knowing what Toshiba model it
is meant for, makes it impossible to find drivers on the TAIS web site.
(Perhaps it uses the same drivers as the older card for my 4600?).

I also see a lot of Orinoco MPC 13A-20 cards for sale on eBay, for $35 -
$40. It is possible to download drivers and client managers for these
cards for many OS'es. I wonder if that might be the way to go ... anyone
know about these? They all seem to use the Lucent chipset.

The other choice, of course, is to use up a PC Card slot and just get a
WLAN card to install there.

Any suggestions?

1.DVDwriter on a toshiba satellite pro 4600?

Hi out there,

my toshiba lappy satpro 4600 is a little bit of old and just came with a cd 
reader. I'd love to upgrade to a dvd writer. any ideas how to accomplish 
this? no newer bios than from 2002 available, though. Regards, alex 

2.RAM Upgrade: Toshiba Satellite Pro 4600

I added a second 128MB SODIMM to the empty slot in a friend's 4600 and the 
system did not see it.    I switched the modules over and still only got 
128MB reported for system RAM so I think that the second slot may be dead - 
have I missed something?    I will be taking a look at the machine tomorrow 
and I have discovered that on another (earlier) Toshiba model, you have to 
use Fn + F3 repeatedly to enter Boot mode before powering down and 
installing extra memory - does anybody know if that procedure should be 
applied on the 4600?    The documentation that came with the machine did not 
mention it.

As a possible alternative I can buy a PC133 version of the 256 MB SODIMM for 
a reasonable price on Ebay but the PC is a PC100 machine - would the faster 
SODIMM actually work at the slower speed?


3.Toshiba 4600 line in?

I need to get at the stereo line in on the Toshiba 4600.

Although the machine only has a mono mic input, the docking station
adds stereo line in and out, so I'm guessing that it exists on the
expansion connector.

Does anyone know where it can be picked up internally, or has anyone
got the pin-out for the expansion connector that would give me the

Has anyone ever fitted a single 512MByte ram card into a Toshiba Sat

 I believe its not officially supported just wondering if it is


5.Toshiba Sat Pro 4600 Memory Upgrade

My Toshiba 4600 takes up to two 256MB PC-100 SODIMMs, 512MB total max, 
apparently. I put two 256MB Infineon PC-100 SODIMMs in and they didn't work! 
So I put one 256MB Kingston PC-133 stick and one OEM 128MB Toshiba PC100 
stick in and it works fine. WTF?!

I'm going to say that the Tosh 4600 doesn't like that particular brand, 
can't remember the model but I know it was Infineon PC100, CL2.
