Toshiba P70-A01Y- Blue screen(s) with Wireless? or something else more?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey OCN, been some time again - looking for some aid

Currently have an toshiba P70-A .. just seems if its not one way to do it some other way fails just the same.

First, ill get to the steps. Did a system restore to windows 8 64bit - The current Bios was only 1.00 - and was able to upgrade it to 1.40 being the current version. After which I did a windows 7 64 bit install- getting the drivers together were a chore alone- well after 2 installs with some success here and there, being the chance it actually working correctly in the order i did the drivers correctly. Seems the more i load the drivers on the problems started to arise like that of windows 8 that it came with, the bluescreen.

So my main problem is what im trying too get at- As of now, with the failed 2 attempts with windows 7- i dumped windows 8.1 onto it - right now it seems stable- but unable to get the wireless lan to work, has a " atheros qcwb335 "Ben trying drivers from around other sources but all seem to do the same, Getting the generic “Page Fault in Nonpaged Area” error once it finishes the driver install for the wireless card..

I was thinking maybe the bluetooth was the fault, but disabling and uninstalling seems to fail as well. Did an ubuntu install had most of the hardware working but was having issues with the cross Intel/Nvidia drivers getting to work. Geforce 745M

Edit: also like to add, I installed a different known working wireless card - and with the generic drivers from windows for that card, also caused the blue screen.

Sorry, ill try and make this more understandable- i know just throwing step's out like that and to make sense of it.

So the notebook came shipped with Windows 8 - seem stabled when it got into update loads, the useage and updating it would blue screen non stop. So i installed windows 7 to try and got it too almost work, but then only having problems with the drivers to get them to all work. Id get almost there with only a few things, being the Geforce driver and a couple of other drivers, thinking its the card reader or the webcam.

It was going well untill i got too the chipset drivers, with the first windows 7 install. so itried again, this time getting past all that and able to install.. But again was having problems letting the Nvidia drivers install.. knowing now, that i need to install the Intel HD video drivers first then the chipset then the Nvidia drivers.. this all is a pain in the a$$.. So with the 2 failed attempts i tried to install Windwos 8.1 Now- with it getting past most of what i described- Now the Wireless lan driver is giving a problem, and i believe it has something to do with the bluetooth stack.. The wireless card, is both Bluetooth and WLan.

OK lets first do this step by step... because I have a feeling your installing the wrong driver or your doing it wrong OR the laptop has some hardware issues.

Does you laptop have warranty on it and when did you buy it ?

Hard to say if it could be hardware related,

Ubuntu 13 ran fine minus the support for the 745M - again hard to say really.the wireless and the rest of the installs worked too.

As the drivers go- they where pulled off the Toshiba site, it seems to be well right now- minus the wireless drivers.. I may try and roll out all the drivers and start again - start with the wireless card first and see. I know there is multiple users with windows 8 blue screening. It was revised with a patch for the Bios. (ver. 1.40)

So thought id share where im at with it now- I have Windows 7 back on- and in the case was more aware in which order i installed the drivers.

2 Dead wireless cards later, including the one that it came with- i noticed a fault... between two hardware vendors.
Currently i have an Intel Wireless-N 1000 and currently seems to be working good. pulled from a dead laptop. The PCB on the two Atheros cards, the PCB is actually somewhat thinner then the Intel PCB.
Hence i was getting random hangs, blue screens with the drivers... and if it was working the wireless would drop out or not see the one connection,

I thought being more careful as i was mentioning in which order the drivers where to be installed.. First the intel video, then the wireless, chipset, windows update - being it was these areas i would experiencing the problems. after that - its where the detail of noticing the wireless cards flaw in design , being paired with the Slot and how its mounted.

Id just like to say- Intel I7 APU with a Nvidia dedicated card... the driver flows between are annoying , if anything Stick with AMD APUs with an ATI card dedicated...

.. next...

Time to figure out the thermal problem... Burn in tests wont pass... and games crash with no errors.

I am struggling exactly with your mentioned installation order of the drivers (try to install a win7 prof on satellite p70-a). Could you help me with the correct driver installation order ?

best regards
