Question about Toshiba Portege M400 PPM40U01000E Tablet PC

Open Question

Toshiba Portege Tablet running Vista, locks up and fan runs noisy

I didn't have this problem with an older version of Windows. It happens EVERY time I try to use it on battery power, within 10-20 seconds from start-up. If I keep it plugged in, I can usually avoid it, except sometimes when it should be going to "sleep". The only way to stop the noisy, fast, hot fan is to flip the power switch to reboot.
It drives me crazy to have a laptop that I can't use without the power cord plugged in!

You can set a user password from inside Windows. From the configuration panel look for an icon that represents two persons and click on it. Follow instructions on setting a user password.
You can also set a password on boot but you have to be careful: If you forget it you cannot open the tablet to remove the password. You will need to take the computer to a Toshiba Certified Service Center.

To set the password on boot you can use the BIOS SetUp configuration or a Toshiba Windows applications (HRWset).

For Windows XP tablet PC edition 2005
If you have the CrossMenu application you can run the HRWsetup from there. You can also go to All programs, Toshiba Utilities and look for HRWSetUp.

For Windows Vista or Windows 7, the name of the application may be Toshiba Security Assist.

Be very careful. You must not lose the password

Go to the Toshiba Mobile support web site for you exact model. Select Drivers download. Select Windows 7 32bits or 64 bit and download the latest versions of all that relate to the Tablet module, and that includes the Wacom driver.

If you Windows is genuine you can uninstall all the Wacom drivers then execute the Check new hardware wizard ( of Hardware changes) or even Windows Update

Sounds like there might be dust inside of the laptop that is blocking one of the air vents. Plus the connectors to the screen may need to be reseated so that way the screen can be moved freely without it locking up on you and cutting off.
You have two issues going on. Bring it to somebody so they can open it up and make sure the air vents are cleaned out. Also they need to make sure the CPU fan is running properly. Then with the screen the connectors need to be reseated. Its also quite possible the screen connector might need to be replaced.
If the laptop is under warranty see if Toshiba will reapir it.

If your computer is still under warranty you can contact the Toshiba support site and order recovery media. They will refer you to the company that sells them. The cost is about 45 dollars + taxes.
Even if your computer is no longer under warranty you may still be able to obtain the recovery medias.

Failing that, you may consider buying a retail version of the Windows Operating system and install it on the computer. Some custom buttons may not work, and you will have to go to the Toshiba support web site to download the drivers for your computer. Before buying a version of Windows, check the Toshiba site for your computer and your intented OS (WinXP 32/64, Vista 32/64, or Win 7 32/64) )to see if they have drivers.

Toshiba portege 3500 tablet pc


Hello,

You should contact Toshiba service and order a recovery CD for that model. You can also install any Windows XP version, but it will not provide support for the tablet functionalities, which means that you will have a notebook that is not a tablet.

Note: Actually the original operating system is Windows XP Tablet PC Edition 2005: It is Win XP Pro + Tablet PC software.

I have heard that Vista provides support for Tablet functionalities, but you may still have to buy it from Toshiba because of the drivers for the specific hardware.

I installed Linux Ubuntu on a tablet. The latest version of Ubuntu provides some support for the wacom stylus pen, but not much else.

Hope it gives you some leads to follow through.
