Toshiba 4600 line in?



  • 1. 802.11g for (old) Compaq/HP nx7010?
    Hello! We purchased a few nx7010 with the Intel PRO/Wireless LAN 2100 3B Mini PCI adapter. WHat we would like to do is replace this with a 802.11G adapter. Now, the newer nx7010 seem to have 802.11b/g as standard. I assume that they are using the Intel 2200 card? Sooooo, can anyone confirm that i could order it as a spare part? Or rather, will the antennae connectors still fit? DOes anyone have the article number for that card? Yes, i know about warrany, but the unit is out of warranty in the first place.
  • 2. Sony PCG-FX140, PCG-FX250, and PCG-FX340 problems ...
    This is the first time I've posted for all three ailing laptops at once. I've taken the opportunity to do certain things because I have at least two laptops for parts swapping. PCG-FX140: No response from the AC adapter (confirmed to be functional). Powered from the battery, the bezel lights blink in alternation from the power and battery lights at once, to the "lock" lights (Caps, Num, and Scroll) at once. It keeps it up until I release the power button. I changed the LCD harness (part number's the same for both harnesses), but I didn't regressive test the laptop before exchanging. PCG-FX250(K actually, but that doesn't matter here): Water damage special with absoultely no response, despite changing power sources (AC adapter and battery) and swapping CPUs, too from the FX340. Supposedly water seeped into the PC card slots. I'm really really really hoping it's just the power supply, but I don't know how to swap 'em. PCG-FX340: The power lights come on, but there's no response afterwards. I tried reseating the CPU and using the FX250's CPU. Same response. I've tried with the battery in both bays, too. Anything else I can try, given these three laptops? Thanks for reading!
  • 3. Updating a new laptop
    First, in general, you can't move installed programs. So, to that extent, you ARE facing a "reinstall". If BOTH computers are running Windows XP, there is a "files and settings transfer Wizzard" that comes with/is part of Windows XP. It's under Start / Programs / Accessories / System tools. If you want to spend some money, there are some commercial products that do this as well. At least one of these (Aloha Bob's PC Relocator, from Eisenware) does purport to be able to move installed programs as well (as far as I know, it's the only exception to the rule, and I'm not sure that it does the job 100% perfectly, but nothing else even claims to try). If the old PC is not running XP, they you almost have to use one of the commercial programs, all of which have various limits on what they can do. The actual movement should be over a network if at all possible (Ethernet to Ethernet). Second choices are USB-to-USB (requires special cable and software) and CD-R/RW media.

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

Your best bet is an external USB sound card.

Any recommendations on something cheap & cheerful?

I only need it for telecoms grade audio (~3.5KHz) so just about
anything will do.

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.WLAN for Toshiba 4600

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?

3.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?


4.Single 512 Mbyte Chip Toshiba 4600

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.
