    Just bought the Satellite U500 a couple of weeks ago.
    All the illumination buttons on the top all work besides the minus volume button.
    I can increase the volume but can decrease it
    Is that part of the sensor broken?


    While Iím here does anyone know which face recognition programme that just has the cameraon and detects your face automatically?
    Iíve seen in at the shops where greeb squares detect you face.
    I downloaded the Toshiba one but you have to move your head horizontally and doesnít detect it automatically

    Thanks

    hi Layzie,
    i think the sounddriver is corrupted - reinstall it and test it.

    sure there is softeware around that can detect the face of a user - mainly for vista.
    which os you are using?

    the software is called "face recognition" - look for it on the download page of toshiba.
    with this software a registered user (you have to train the software first) can log on system without entering a password.3

    hey thanks
    for the the reple
    im running windows 7
    ive have downloaded the toshiba face recognition but its not the one i want
    the toshiba one makes you move your head for it to detect. the one i want just shows
    the web cam and green sqaures that detect your face kinda like on a digital camera

    thanks

    You have seen this in some shopsÖ did you see it preinstalled on U500 and running Win 7?
    From my knowledge some of Qosmio G50 supports a tool which recognizes the hand moves and signsÖ but didnít see it for U500Ö.

    All tools created for U500 are placed in the driver download section for U500Ö

    no i saw them with windows vista and not 7
    and my button seems to still not work
    as in i did everything shutdown it worked then the next day it stoped again
    now my windows media button is not very responsive
    it only detects it after i press it down hard
    while the negative volume button dosnt respond at all
    is my touch buttons just faulty?
    if so does toshiba repair it if under warranty?
    thanks

    It will be really interesting to know what service think about this issue. if you can contact nearest Toshiba authorized service provider and let them test it.
    If there is some hardware problem it will be repaired for free. Valid warranty will cover all repair costs.
