Toshiba M700 PCI Simple Communication Contoller

Toshiba M700 PCI Simple Communication Controller Still working on the clean install of Windows Vista on the Toshiba M700 Tablet convertible laptop/notebook
So this was a unit that was purchased with no hard drive "previous owner had a drive crash and removed it" and no recovery disks... I know .. stupid me thinking this would be easy.. So with the COA I know I am legal in loading Vista Business on the notebook. So a clean install with a new drive was in order. Multiple and I mean alot of drivers installed off of Toshiba's wonderful site "Note the Sarcasm" now have PCI Simple Communications Controller" in device manager with the trusty yellow !... Wonderful... Turns out you must install the proper AMT driver not just any old AMT driver off Toshiba's web site but as of today the file name is driver_intel_amt_26827C.exe.. I'm not going to even bother with a link cause Toshiba will convert it and just send you to their default support page. Good luck in your search for drivers... I think this may work for Windows 7 as well but I will not be trying it .. this one will be on CraigsList in the morning. Not my cup of Tea... Will be going back to my MacBook Pro Thank You Very Much ... it Just Works. OH yea and not a FanBoy... Have multiple PC's/Servers I support with Windows.. HA.

Toshiba M700 PCI Memory Controller

Doing a clean install of Windows Vista (Not a recover" on the Toshiba M700 Convertable Tablet style notebook comes with some problems.. As usual
so after navigating through Toshiba's web site for downloads and thinking I had gotten everything .. device manager of Windows Vista showed no device driver for "PCI Memory Controller" after reinstalling driver after driver from the wonderful Toshiba site... "RANT" Why would they not just post the most recent driver like oh I don't know ... HP in a nice list per each operating system instead they make you scroll through ever single driver they have... For this one you are looking for the Intel Robson Technology Driver for Windows Vista.. I am not bothering to put a link in here due to the fact that any external links just go to the default Tosiba support page ... the actual file name as of today is driver_sata_intel_26822a.exe Good luck in all your driver searches..

Vizio VTab1008 Bad Skype

From
So I got the Android Vizio VTab1008 running Gingerbread 2.3.2 for a couple of reasons.

First cause it was cheap

Second is because the Vizio 8" Tablet has GPS and bluetooth.

GPS is some what important seeing that I would like to get rid of my dedicated GPS for the truck and minimize some toys. :)

and For Skype and Google+...

First off the Vizio Vtab1008 is really a good running tablet I like the capacitive 8" screen it just works. Hated the launcher it came with but Go Launcher works great from the market.

Three Problems I have found that will make me put it up for sale on craigslist unless Vizio comes out with HoneyComb or Ice Cream Sandwich for the VTab1008 and fixes these issues.

1. the vizio vtab1008 and skype do not get along .. you can make a video call but you will have to turn the tablet upside down for your image to show up correctly on the other side of the conversation.

2. Adobe Flash... 10.1 on the Vizio Vtab1008... come on ... Vizio get with the updates here... I know it is optimized for the tablet... but some flash will not work specifically in Google+ Tried watching +Thomas Hawk last night with +Lotus and no dice... could not do it.. BIG PROBLEM here..

3. internal memory of the Vizio Vtab1008 whats left over to use from the 4GB internal is mapped to mnt/sdcard ... that is just stupid.. you can not put apps on the real SD card.. kills some functionality.. so now your real SD card is sdcard/external.

Come on Vizio lets get some lovein for the user community here... oh and this should really grind on you But the Pandigital Planet ... Can Do all of the things I have mentioned here (no bluetooth or gps though) but it will do Skype, Flash and the SD card and memory are mapped correctly. :) ... And it is Cheaper and has a slower processor

Oh yeah and you can forget about trying to

Root the Vizio Vtab1008

Vizio blocked that capability with the latest upgrade to their rom ver 1.5 still shows 1.4 in sys info but the build 1.9.57 will tell you you are locked out of rooting this table.

And here is the rest of it.

8" Android Tablet Model 80461

From tablet

So there is not much information on this little Unbranded MID tablet so I will try and fill in some of the blanks.

First off there is nothing on the box or in the manual as far as what brand this is or even the manufacturer. How they got a Google certification for Android Market I have no clue. Especialy when the Pandigital Tablets are 100 times better and work great.

System info Shows the Model number as 80461
What you have is a Wonder Media 8650 or
a WM8650 this is an 800Mhz CPU

There are forums that are dedicated to they WM8650 Android tablets but none I have found to be much help with this "marvel of engineering".

Basically it is a resistive touch screen Android tablet running Froyo 2.2
The screen looks nice and the music and video players are basic and work correctly Divx movies and TV shows play fine with the built in video player but YMMV.

The rest of the tablet is SLOW... and that is an understatement.

Do not even try to play Angry Birds on this WM8650 either or you may be shooting it out of sling shot like one of the Birds... It is nothing but frustrating.

Now there is hope for this little 8" 80461 but I have not tested it and you may want to be cautious doing this as well but there is a commuinty that has come up with a modified ROM for it. They are Tech Know

Before you Run off and hit their site Flashing the ROM and stuff here are a few things you should know... *** Could Brick your semi-functional tablet ****

From tablet

Your Model number 80461 is:
generic-eng2.2 Froyo ver1.5.3-20110819.042300
It Should be the Green LED (Red when Charging) under the button
This one Vibrates when it turns on.

Hardware is WMT
CPU is arm926ej-s rev 5.

There is no FastBoot or Recovery on boot... All manner of powering on with volume + or volume - work.

There is no recovery boot at all ... if you jack up the tablet there is no recovery that I could find. Including no Manufacturers web site to go to to download a new ROM.

So if you are brave and want a faster Android experience on this MID head over to Tech Know... and Just remember that the creator is HCH... Good luck.

Here are some of the Specs you would want on the 8" tablet Model number 80461 android tablet.

HP Envy 14 Spectre At CES

HP Envy 14
(Image Cnet)
As I mentioned before that CES would be filled with UltrBooks from different manufacturers trying to capture the same market place that Apple has had for the last couple of years with the MacBook Air. HP not to be left behind came out with the Envy 14 Spectre. Basically a thin and light notebook targeted at the small business market. Almost fully clad in Gorilla Glass..

"Glass who puts glass on a Notebook????"

Ok HP says that using Gorilla Glass will make the laptop more scratch resistant. But is it Shatter Prof??? I mean if Bump my MacBook Pro against the corner of a desk and it gets a dent in it I may be able to live with that ... but if you bump the HP Envy with the same corner will it shatter????

Other info that was released is no dedicated graphics chip??? Come on sounds like an over grown NetBook... With SSD hard drive and Beats Audio included ..

all for around 1399$ USD... little expensive for a NetBook if you ask me.. :)
