Qosmio G30 - Media center remote control doesn't work in windows

Dear All,
I have Qosmio G30-194,
first i had a problem with the VGA , i send it for repair, when it comes back i noticed that the remote control is not working on windows Media Center, while in A/V mode it work perfectly.
I tried to do full system restore from the recovery DVD, but nothing changed, even i installed Windows Vista with all of its drivers.
Nothing changed also, I borrowed a USB IR received for another remote control it worked perfectly with my remote on windows.
Please advise me what to do, do i send it back to the service center , or there is an easier solution.

N.B, : My laptop info are:
Model Number PQG32E-01P018AR
Thank you in advance

don't expect toshiba to fix problems like this.
they replaced motherboard on my laptop and ever since the remote was not working.. it would turn the laptop on but was unresponsive thereafter. thing's we have tried:
- install software and drivers for remote again
- reinstall windows
- replace reciever
- change motherboard
- change remote
- terminate and restart relevant processes
- downgrade bios
- update bios
- combinations of the above
on several occassions Toshiba told me they were able to replicate and solve the problem but after trying it on my laptop they remembered that actually their one was slightly different.
almost a year later, i still have a non-working remote
my theory is the laptop leaves factory with certain software which Toshiba fail to include in recovery partition and\or bios that is available through them... so once you lose the factory components (i.e.the original motherboard) you also lose some necessary files with them.

  • Earbuds remote control doesn't work anymore!

    I've had an iPhone 4 since September 2010, and I've always used the earbuds that came with him.They used to work great until this week.
    Now, it's buillt-in remote control doesn't work anymore.By that I mean I can not skip, pause or even use voice control through the earbuds.
    And this probably isn't an iPhone problem, because I tested these earbuds in my iPad 2 and the remote control still doesn't work.
    I noticed that the rubber that used to cover the cable itself is coming off, especially near the remote control area.
    Is there a fix for these unresponsive controls?
    Or what Apple email I should reach in order to ask them about this issue?
    My iPhone 4 is running iOS 5.0 and so is my iPad 2.

    Is your phone locked in portrait orientation? I've found that for some reason my controls will not work when my portrait orientation is locked.
    Try double-clicking the main button, and then sliding your thumb right. You should get some controls at the bottom of your screen, and the button on the far left is the Portrait Lock button. Try unlocking your phone, and see if your earbuds will then work.
    Hope that might help!

  • After updating my iphone 3G and my ipodtouch 3G ios5, universal dock and remote control doesn´t work

    After updating my iphone 3G and my ipotouch 3G with ios5, the apple remote controls (the white and the aluminium one) doesn´t react when iphone or ipod are docked at the universal dock. The remote controls both still work with my Macbook, therefore it must be a problem with the dock. I have tried to connect both with the dock (Menu + left for 6 seconds) but it doesn´t help. Further the volume control doesn´t react on the iphone and the ipod when they are docked. Neither the one on the touchscreen nor the buttons. The day before the update everything was fine. Anyone any idea?

    Look at the previous posts on the right under the heading: "More Like This".  I appears that others are having the same problem.

  • Apple Remote controll doesn't work

    hi there.
    I have read, that the Apple Remote Controll, that can be used for things like iPhoto & iTunes can also be used to controll Logic 8, starting and stopping playback ... .
    Doesn't work at my system. Is there anything i have to setup? Have heared it should work by default.
    thx for help

    In iTunes 8:
    Go into your iTunes preferences and select the Devices tab. Make sure "Look for iPhone and iPod Touch Remotes" is selected. If it already is, try clicking "Forget All Remotes"
    In iTunes 7:
    Go into your iTunes preferences and select the Advanced tab. Select the General tab beneath it, and make sure "Look for iPhone and iPod Touch Remotes" is selected. If it already is, try clicking "Forget All Remotes"
    You also want to be sure that both devices (the computer and the iPod) are connected to the same wireless network.

    I too have this exact same issue.  The play, stop, forward, reverse buttons don't do anything, and also the sound buttons, they activate the volume window but not adjustment of the volume happens. The only buttons that work are the opening of applications and the power button. All this happened after I installed some free updating software for some other paid and free applications I have (Advanced SystemCare Professional), all quite legitiment, as a result there were corrupt icons and I had to uninstall the offending software and some corrupted software including Microsoft Office beta and reinstall... no viruses were found on a full Zonealarm scan.  I have the DV6-2113TX on Win-7.  If ANYONE has a clue how to fix the full functionality of the remote, please let me know as it's really niggling me that it just doesn't work even after reinstalling the drivers for the IR etc.
    I tried contacting HP online and I get NO replies.  I am yet to phone.  It is still under warranty with 20 months left (8 months manufacturer, 12 months supplier).

  • My remote Control doesn't work with my new imac

    I have a brand new iMac 27" with mountain lion, and Doesn't work with my aluminium remote control, I already follow the steps on Help, but there's no IR option on the advanced button of security and privacy. Of course I already check with my iphone dock and the batteries are OK, So I think it's a bug from the OS.

  • Qosmio G30 - New CD/DVD drive doesn't work properly

    Hiya all
    I'm hoping someone can help me. I have had to replace my TS-L802A drive with another of the same model, except that when I replaced the drive I have problems booting from CD and the laptop (Qosmio G30) rejects it by saying CD-ROM error on startup.
    I managed to install the operating system from a flash drive and it works fine except for the cd rom side of things. Do I need to flash the drive in order for the laptop to recognise it? If so how do I go about doing this. I'm thinking that the chipset for the optical drive is set as slave or something and not master.
    Please help!

    the drive wont show in the bios, the bios is wierd, it wont show the model number or name of any devices. is there a difference between a setup and the bios or are they the same thing. i cant configure anything. i have my old drive working at the moment but its badly damaged although it still reads disks hence the reason i managed to install an operating system. are there certain drives set as master/ cselect/ slave if so is there a way to flash the drive to make it work with my toshiba qosmio g30. or can i swap the chipsets on the optical drive by disassembling the casing and swapping them over. i just want the thing fixed. thanks please help!!!

  • Remote Control doesn't work.

    I got an Apple Remote control with my MacBook a while back. I refuses to work with my computer. It will not pair with my computer, it will not do anything. I read the support files, and I can see a blinking light when I hold it up to my camera in photo booth and press a button, so I know the batteries are working. The remote (or the receiver) does not want to work.

    Open System Profiler (Application/Utilities)
    Under Hardware on the left, select USB. Under USB Device tree on the right you should see...
    USB Bus
    IR Receiver
    Is it there?

  • Qosmio X300-15R - Touchpad on/off doesn't work on Windows 7

    In the past i have used the Fn+ F9 to stop the touchpad from working (i usualy had a mouse nearby and that works better), now i tried to use it again and it doesn't turn on anymore?
    Only windows 7 (64bits) has been installed since.
    what do i have to do to get the touchpad working again?
    (i've already tried to install the value added package but that gives an error on instal)
    With kind regards
    P.S i am using speedfan to cheak my grafic card temperature because the laptop has been shuting down in the past (never does that with windows 7 though)
    and the temperature of the grafic cards gets over 100 degrees celcius, when plating the biggest games, is that normal?

    Well i stil haven't found a solution to my touchpad nor the temperature and now i've got an other issue.
    While it was working yesterday fine my laptop isn't making anymore sounds all of a sudden, i've done a system recover from last week but it still isn't working.
    Any clue's what to do to make it work again?
    with kind regards
    Edit a driver update for windows7 seems todo the trick.
    i still needa sollution for my touchpad btw. (the red bar above it is glowing red), ain't sure if that means its on though

    - Reset the iOS device. Nothing will be lost
    Reset iOS device: Hold down the On/Off button and the Home button at the same time for at
    least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
    - Reset all settings      
    Go to Settings > General > Reset and tap Reset All Settings.
    All your preferences and settings are reset. Information (such as contacts and calendars) and media (such as songs and videos) aren’t affected.
    - Restore from backup. See:                                 
    iOS: How to back up                                                                
    - Restore to factory settings/new iOS device.      
    If still problem, make an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store since it appears you have a hardware problem.

  • Replay video in Muse (some controls doesn't work)

    Hello colleagues,
    Can't understand what is happening. I put a video in the Animate and assign controls for buttons (for example, replay video from 0:00 sec). For stage and video autoplay function are disabled.
    Then I export the oam-file and insert it into the Muse with a Scroll Effect "Edge Animate" (Autoplay) to play the video at a certain point. Video starts correctly, but some controls doesn'n work, for example, "replay video". Along with this function "Toggle video play/pause" works correcly.
    Actually, I want to loop video playback but it doesn't work in the Muse (Loop function for a video).
    Can anybody recommend a solution?

    Hello Joe,
    This is very interesting, but when I upload the project from Muse to my FTP-server, everything is working properly in all of browsers, all of controls and loop for the video clip. I found it by accident when I lost all hope. In other words, the problem is only when previewing the page in a browser (via the built-in local server). Maybe this is a question for the team Muse? Anyway I can send it in PM.
    Thanks for your reply,
