Windows 7: Toshiba Problems

23 Jul 2009   #11


Sorry, I was being obtuse.

Not only am I talking about running the installer in Vista compatibility mode, but also the program itself after it is installed on your computer.

Windows 7 64-bit

Yeah, but I didint install it, I just ran the one I already had and it comes up and allows me to check off the things it does but I never had this menu before so I dont know if this is the right program. When i got my PC, I just had it from the get-go. I simply pressed FN and the menu popped up so I never knew what it was called. Anyway, When I turn on the FN Accessibility it doesn't do anything even though running in Vista mode did work.

Toshiba Drivers and Software for Windows 7 Release Candidate
Microsoft's public release of Windows 7 Release Candidate 1 (RC1; Build 7100) was on May 5, 2009.
To find any available Windows 7 beta drivers for your model, simply click the Download link, above, and select your model.

While viewing the list of software for your model, you can shorten the list to only Windows 7 downloads by selecting "Windows 7" as the operating system using the "Refine Search by" filtering tools above the list of downloads. If "Windows 7" is not available as an operating system search filter, that means there is no beta software available for your selected model at this time.
There are numerous A355 Satellites listed, so you'll have to give me more info or figure it out yourself.

Next time when I say go to the support website, please do.

Hi John,

I did read the question, but he stated Toshiba had no Win7 sw for him,
so I tried to give him a workaround.

Sadly that didn't work either.

He could try it trough his graphics card options, if there are any.

Older laptops and Win7 are not best friends that's for sure.

I see 9 items listed for Windows 7 and 8 for Windows 7 64bit. I would take a look at the Toshiba Value Added Package - that seems like it might be the correct one.

@squon - Understandable. However, I knew there is W7 software available....

Windows 7 64-bit

Yeah thats the only one that I am downloading. If this fails to work, I might downgrade to vista. Would I have to buy it even though it was my default OS?

You *should* have a way to restore the laptop to its original factory state - read your documentation for that on exactly how to go about doing that.

Otherwise, you'll have to find a Vista installer, use your OEM key (should be on the bottom of the laptop) and then reinstall all the drivers and apps by hand.

Windows 7 64-bit

I was looking here Toshiba Support Forums: Qosmio F50 - Fn Keys not working ...

I assume you've gotten the one from the page I linked you to? The drop down box allows you to filter by OS - so if you have Windows 7 32bit select Windows 7 - and you get only 9 items, one of which is a TVAP for W7. If you have W7 64bit, you select Windows 7 x64 - and you get 8 items, again one of which is the TVAP.

You need to know which version of W7 you're running - and get the appropriate one.
