I have a Satellite A305-S6905 and I have been getting the error message "TosIPCSrv.exe has stopped working". I try to "Check online for a solution", but the error just keeps coming back every few minutes. Below are the problem details from the pop-up screen.
Hope someone can help me fix this.

I tried the System Restore and it failed. I got the message "System Restore did not complete successfully.... The writer experienced a transient error... (0x800423F3).

That Toshiba file is a logging component of your S.M.A.R.T. hard drive sensing system. I don't know anything about it.
You can probably get rid of the message by disabling an item on the Startup tab of the Windows Configuration utility (msconfig.exe).
I'm a Windows specialist. Somebody who knows the Toshiba files will be needed to help more.

Good find, Mike.
On a Toshiba computer (which I don't have here), open Services (services.msc) and see if this one is there.
Toshiba SMART Log Service
What do you have on Properties' Recovery tab?

I do not have the Toshiba SMART Log Service on my Satellite A350-01N, which is essentially the same as the USA Satellite A350-ST3601. Looking at bjacinto's A305-S6905 specs and available downloads, I assume Toshiba SMART Log Service must come as part of the TVAP or something, as I do not see it listed seperately.

I tried following the instructions, but it didn't fix the problem. When I checked the Recovery tab on the Toshiba Smart Log Service Properties, for "First failure" and "Second failure", it's set to "Restart the Service". For "Subsequent failures", it's set to "Take no Action".

When that message occurs, note the computer-clock time.
Open Event Viewer (eventvwr.msc), expand Windows Logs, and inspect the Application and System logs for the corresponding event (at that exact time).
Don't try to copy anything from there. Double-click the event and then click the Copy button. That will put the details on your clipboard.
Paste it without editing into your reply - except we want only what's above the line Event Xml:.

Doesn't turn out to be very helpful. I was hoping we'd find a service error.
Does the message appear when you boot clean?
1. Open the System Configuration utility (msconfig.exe).
2. On the General tab, click Selective startup and clear the Load startup items check box.
3. On the Services tab, click the Hide all Microsoft services check box and click Disable all.
4. OK out and restart the computer.

The message didn't appear when I tried what you instructed.
This time run all the services, but leave everything on the Startup tab unchecked. That is, on the General tab, check Load system services, but leave Load startup items unchecked.
OK out and restart Windows.

The message came back
So one of the services makes the trouble.
Just to make sure there's nothing on the Startup tab involved,..
- on the Services tab, set the Hide all Microsoft services check box and click Disable all as before.
- on the General tab, set the Load startup items check box.
If the message is absent, then we know it's only a service involved.
Use the Services tab to track down the culprit. Leave all the Microsoft services running, uncheck half the others, and reboot. Then continue with the binary search until you find the one responsible.
Let us know what you discover.
