Unhappy

But I have some success, I installed Omnibook module, and CPU fan is working now, CPU temp is max 55C now, and brightness keys working too. It working with ectype=14. With ectype=11, my laptop switch on by your self after I shut down it. But, what still don't working for my is hibernate and sleep mode.

hmm so only with ectype=11 but not 14? thats weird...
mine did it regardless with my l300's bios at 1.7 never bothered with it after that since osi_acpi=Linux seemed to fix it at version 1.8 and 1.9 (add it to the kernel boot options)
as for suspend and hibernate, its very hit and miss. If you search google for quirks you'll eventually find a troubleshooting site for suspend and hibernate issues. Has some very good ones and i got mine working on previous laptops although i forget how now...

Help!

I found this thread just by Googling. I'm not a programmer and am completely helpless when it comes to computer "issues." I have new Toshiba Satellite with InsydeH20Bios. The other day I was online and suddenly I got this light blue screen that said "Configuring updates: Stage 3 of 3 - 0% Complete. Do not turn off your computer." I thought it was the automatic update program running so I let it go, but then the "shutting down" message came on. It did shut down, but them booted right back up again and went straight to the same "configuring" message. Now it's stuck in a vicious cycle and that's all it will do. I've tried taking the battery out, but that didn't do any good. My son's homeschool curriculum is on this computer, so I need it fixed asap. Can anybody help me?

SomisMom, As I understand it you are using the windows operating system. This thread is to cover problems with linux, a completely different operating system. I realise you maybe frustrated with your problem so can understand why you thought posting here maybe of some help but, the problem we were discussing and your problem are like chalk and cheese.
If you really would like to get help from this forums, make your own topic under the "non *nix" general section.

I can confirm that on Ubuntu 9.10 the fan still does not change speed; it's either on or off

Question

Hi everyone !
I can confirm this issue too on a Toshiba L505-10P laptop (quite new) with Ubuntu Karmic 9.10. The fan is on, but there is no thermal regulation, it means, it's always spinning at full speed....even with 30C core temp.... Fan and thermal zone are not even recognized. I've tried almost everything on this thread. (by the way, this issue doesn't not occur on Windows 7 64 bits). I've even installed kernel 2.6.32rc5 to see it was better...but still the same thing...

Here is acpitool -e output :

same for me

Hey,

I have the same trouble: upgraded to Karmic and fan stopped behaving as it should be. Previously I edited the /boot/grub/menu.lst - but now there is no such thing in my directories. I am unsure if I should create one and what exactly comes in there. My fan is going on and on and pushing out cold air - I am freezing! Please help!

hugohami >> if you have Karmic, then you have Grub 2 boot loader...you need to edit /etc/default/grub line with "quiet splash" to add some boot options to the kernel

About this issue on my Toshiba L505, I have noticed that when I start the computer and when the temperature is below 40C, then the fan acts normaly...but once the temperature go above 40C, it starts to spin at full speed and never calms down...even when the temperature goes below 40C again...

Thanks Anakin Starkiller,

I found the right file edited /etc/default/boot so that the line looks like this:
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash acpi_osi=Linux"

No change after first reboot, but now it seems like it is doing something. Fan turned on at 50C and running slowly and turned off at 35C. So I am quite happy for now. Anybody knows if the sleep/hybernate/resume things got better in Karmic? Do you also need to edit something there?

Good luck.

Well, when I installed Karmic for the first time, suspend to ram was not working...I decided to upgrade to 2.6.32 kernel (from mainline ppa kernel, currently using 2.6.32rc6), and now I've got 3D/2D acceleration with open source radeon drivers and fully working suspend to ram (haven't test hibernation yet, but it should be ok).
With L505 Toshiba, I still got fan issues...even with acpi_osi=Linux or acpi=force

Anybody tried the new BIOS updates on Toshiba's site ? There is one for mine dated Oct. 27, 2009. I am happy with my setup so I'll pass on this one - thought I'd let you folks know...maybe there is one for your machines too.

Ciao
