    Last week, I complained about the mic's low level and I sent it to Toshiba mobile care in Adelaide. Yesterday, they sent it back.

    Problem one:

    I checked the laptop carefully and found out there's one screw missing near the wireless switch. (The screw type should be F6.5). Could Toshiba sent me that screw so that I can put that back on?

    problem two:

    The problem my laptop had last week was low level of the mic. I adjusted the mic level to 100% and boost to 0%, I can't get any thing from the mic indicator by yelling to the mic.
    Yesterday when I check the repaire report, it says "updated sound and video drivers, adjusted mic boost, replaced mic, updated bios, unit passed all diagnostics"

    It worked well when I checked. But for some reason I need to re-install the laptop. After I re-installed the system, the same old problem came up again! Then I updated the bios, the audio drivers. According to the report, I should update the video driver too. I went to mytoshiba.com.au, entered the download page of the windows 7 for the P500, I couldn't find the right video driver for my laptop. Mine is "NVIDIA GeForce GT230M version=8,15,11,8642". The driver on the web page is "AMD Display Driver 8.634.1-090729a-086065C-Toshiba".

    I downloaded it anyway and tried to install this video driver. After the extraction completed, I checked the basic information of this computer. The bios and the audio drivers are updated, but the video driver is still the same and the low mic level problem is still the same.

    Last week I called twice the telephone support, more than an hours waiting, spent so much time on the forum, made an very ugly box and sent the laptop to the mobile center, my laptop was opened and changed part and sent back to me. After all this, I still got the same laptop with the same problem and now is missing a screw!!

    I appreciate the work the technicians did. They did fix the problem. But I don't want to send the laptop to them every time after I re-install the system. So please tell me how to fix it.

    Hi sayhi80,

    I doubt that Toshiba can send you this screw but you should contact the authorized service provider again. Iím pretty sure that they can send you the missing screw and you can install it yourself. This should take only few seconds.

    Regarding your question about the display driver: Which graphic card you have exactly? If you have a nVidia card, you canít install the AMD Display Driver.
    Furthermore it would be interesting to know which notebook you have exactly. Maybe you can post the exact model number.

    Normally are all drivers placed on the Toshiba pageÖ

    Thank you for the reply. Here are the information of my laptop, I copy them exactly from the "Toshiba PC Diagnostic Tool - Basic information"

    Model Name: Satellite P500
    Part Number: PSPG8A-020004
    Serial Number: Y9152230W
    OS version: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 6.1.7600
    BIOS Version: V3.10
    CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU P8800@2.66GHz
    Physical Memory: 4096MB RAM
    Hard Disk Capacity: 626,750,644,224[Byte] 583.707[GB]
    Hard Disk Free Space Capacity: 578,957,660,160[Byte] 539.196[GB]
    Video: NVIDIA GeForce GT 230M version=8.15.11.8642
    Screen Resolution: 1680X945 Pixels
    Color Quality: True Color (32 Bit)
    Sound: NVIDIA High Definition Audio version=1.0.0.55
    NVIDIA High Definition Audio version=1.0.0.55
    NVIDIA High Definition Audio version=1.0.0.55
    NVIDIA High Definition Audio version=1.0.0.55
    Conexant Pebble High Definition SmartAudio version=4.98.8.61
    Network: Atheros AR8131PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller (NDIS 6.20) version=......
    Modem: None

    TOSHIBA MK3263GSX
    MAT****A BD-CMB UJ141ES FW version=1.00

    So, I'm pretty sure that the video driver of my laptop is not on the Toshiba page or not on the right page. I noticed that they update the pages after I complained about I couldn't find the drivers of my laptop for windows 7. I very appreciate it.

    Hi sayhi80,

    I donít know why the Toshiba website shows another driver but in this case I would recommend checking the European page. There you can download the nVidia display driver for Windows 7 64bit:

    http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com => Support & Downloads => Download Drivers
    Notebook > Satellite > Satellite P Series > Satellite P500 > PSPG8E

    Check this!!!

    I couldn't find my model anywhere else except the web site.

    I brought it back to Toshiba mobile care center, problem solved. The technician told me that the newest driver he installed and solved the problem in my laptop hasn't been released yet and he can't give it to me. So I backed up my system after the service.

    Thank you every one.
