I have a Satellite Pro A10 with Win XP Pro installed and cannot access the power settings. When I go to the power settings in Windows I get a msg telling me to use Toshiba Power Saver and the Win power settings are greyed out.
I have installed pwrsav-spa10-xp-60007-en.zip which tells me it is installing the Toshiba Power Saver but still the Win power settings are greyed out and I can find no seperate 'Toshiba Power Saver' application.
The BIOS shows 'ACPI BIOS version=1.30.
Can anyone advice how to change the power settings please?
Thnx.

Dave

Hi Dave,

Do you have the "Toshiba Common Modules" installed? These are required first for many Toshiba models, and the Power Settings module is an add-on to this.

If you do not have the appropriate restore or utilities CD handy, the drivers can be downloaded from the Toshiba website.

I hope this helps, let us know how you get on
