  • 3. I had a flash on genius
    I have a laptop, and it takes a 14.4 volt 1500mahish battery, but the battery is fried, so that renders the laptop useless. I was looking at my RC Car today and noticed that I have a 7.2V battery, hmm 7.2 X 2 =14.4! So can I take two 7.2 Volt 3000mah batterys and put them together and use them with my latop? i would ahave to make some kind of custom setup so I could charget them with my rc charger, but could it be done?

Has anyone ever fitted a single 512MByte ram card into a Toshiba Sat
Pro 4600.  One of my memory slots is bad so cannot use 2 x 256 MBytes.
 I believe its not officially supported just wondering if it is

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.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


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.
