BIOS update problem

Hi guys,.

I have a HP Pavilion G6 / product number: A7E06EA #ABU and when I run the update of the BIOS, when restarting the laptop it just gets stuck on a black screen Uni, please note I have Truecrypt installed which crypt my HARD drive, this could be the cause of the reason why my BIOS is not flashing?


TrueCrypt is one of the reasons why it is not Flash the BIOS on the computer. Try disabling Truecrypt on the computer and then update the BIOS.

When you update the BIOS of the computer, make sure that both the battery and the AC adapter is connected to the computer. Also make sure that the battery charge is greater than 80%

    Thank you and I hope you can help me...


    The version of the BIOS should be mentioned in the BIOS settings.
    Turn on the device, press F2 and verify the version here.

    Also I recommend the settings of the BIOS back to default settings.
    In the BIOS settings, you will need to press F9 to get the default value. Then save the changes and exit the BIOS.
    Restart the machine and check how many processes are running in the context of the BONE.

    I recommend disabling of certain non-essential processes in msconfig.
    There, you can go to the Startup tab and could uncheck the unnecessary process.

  • Satellite R630-130 Bios Update problem 1.90

    Find it me difficult to update the BIOS 1.90 because I got the message that I had permission to run the update. Of course, I executed the request made by the administrator and try several times to restart Windows (Home prem 64 - bit). The last time when I installed 1.80 BIOS update there was not this sentence. Attach the screen with the message from the application.
    Thank you very much.

    In my opinion, there is a problem with Win7 version you are using. Maybe it's not enough to run as administrator, but you must be logged in as an administrator.

    Please check it out.

    By the way: why do you need new version of BIOS? Is there a problem with your laptop?

  • Satellite U500 - 1-8 - BIOS update problem


    I have a problem with * BIOS * update on my Toshiba * U500 - 1 d 8-PSU9ME *.
    Currently, the BIOS is + v1.50 +, but on this page
    I found the new version + v1.90 +. (I know that the BIOS update should be made not when any problem occurs, but I occasionally some problems on startup etc...)

    When I run the update * UBIOS.bat* that nothing happens, but the thread * WinFlash.exe* is running on background.

    What can I do? I found this manual, but it is not useful.
    Any idea?

    Thank you


    If you have downloaded the BIOS v1.90 so you need to unzip (uncompress) first of all, this package. Inside the packaging, you will find the BIOS190.exe
    You must run this exe file.

    You say that WinFlash.exe is running on the background. Well, try closing this process and start then start the update
    You can also reboot the device and might try to start the procedure once more

  • Satellite C855 - 19 X - BIOS update problem

    Hi all

    I have a Satellite phone C855 - 19 X and the alert tempo TOSHIBA utility prompts me to update my BIOS. However when I am doing so I get the following message

    Flash process will end!
    Current platform have secure start capability, it must provide the location of storage NV by interface IHISI.
    Please contact BIOS OEM Engineer to add the feature.
    Without this IHISI interface, variables to authenticate will be modified or erased by flash process.
    If you understand the risk and want to keep flashing.
    You can add the following parameter in platform.ini to ignore the error.
    SkipSecureBootProtectionCheck = 1"

    Does anyone have any experience with this kind of problem? Should I add this parameter, or is otherwise around it? Because the BIOS will be affected I hesitate to do so.

    Thank you in advance.


    First of all, you should know that the update of the BIOS is a sensitive technique and using wrongly you can damage the motherboard. So be sure to always update the BIOS.

    Second, the update of the BIOS is not quite necessary in case your laptop runs correctly.
    You have problems using the laptop? Isn't it? Well, in this case I wouldn't touch the BIOS.

    However, the error message is telling as secure boot
    Secure boot is an available option in the BIOS settings. You should probably disable secure boot before running the BIOS update file.

  • Portege R700 Bios update problem - this computer is not supported

    I tried the update for Portégé R700 Bios with Toshiba Service Station and by downloading the exe of the bios.
    Both say that "this computer is not supported", but the downloaded bios file is correct.

    What should do?


    Go to the page European driver Toshiba and download the BIOS package manually.
    Unzip the BIOS and try to run the exe file once more

    But why you need BIOS update? Have you noticed a few problems with the laptop?
    BIOS update is not required if you don t have problems.

  • BIOS update problems. After SP3 update, I got the BSOD and cannot be run in Mode without failure.

    Yesterday I went to the AMD site to download the latest version of the BIOS.  I installed the SP3 for XP and got the BSOD but no details, only four error codes after the Stop 0x0000007e.

    Registered under a WinZip BIOS and when I opened it, it was defined as a file of VLC media player, which seemed poorly, and as a text file, which seemed wrong.  Earlier, but I had been able to open it, then run, and then he said that I had to stop so he could activate.  So when I said if turned off, the system said, hang on, it's not over and if you stop now, you may lose files.  So I waited, nothing happened.  So I did it again, and he says that you want to uninstall, suggesting it was already installed.

    If it has been installed, it has obviously had no effect on my BSOD problem.  Only, I can boot into safe mode since I've upgraded to SP3.  And a question he says might be the problem, it's a BIOS updated.

    Have I not two BIOS?  One for the CPU and one for the motherboard?  I went to update my ASUS MB, but who could have got WinZip number, not the AMD BIOS for the CPU.  Anyway, still getting the BSOD.  And when I started, I don't think that the version of the BIOS has changed.  But I could check my version against the latest versions, and I'm seriously out of date.

    I have an AMD Athlon 64 X 2 6000 + 89v.

    Motherboard is ASUS M2N-SLI-Deluxe

    I really don't think the updated BIOS updated.

    Have you tried the method of resolution 1 in and is the registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\Intelppm this?

    Have you seen ?

    The foregoing despite...

    What application or antivirus security suite is installed and your current subscription?  What anti-spyware (other than Defender) applications?  What third-party firewall (if applicable)?  Who were these applications that run in the background when you tried to install SP3?

    A (another) Norton or McAfee application has already been installed on the computer (for example, a free trial version which is preinstalled when you bought it)?

  • Satellite L100 doesn't boot up - BIOS update problem

  • Satellite C660-13R - BIOS update problem

    Hi all

    I was updating the BIOS on TOSHIBA SATELLITE C660-13R of 64-bit windows 7. Downloaded driver toshiba web. To halfway the portable installation hangs. I left it for 40 minutes to run, but he did not return to the normal state. As the motherboard fan began to move at high speed, I decided to take out the battery. Result when I power my laptop back I 1 beep from the motherboard and a black screen.

    Can someone help me please?

    Of course, the BIOS update procedure has not. Something was wrong during the update process and it seems that the EMRPOM module was not properly flashed.
    This is the reason why the laptop is no longer.

    Possible solution?
    Well, if EMPROM isn t damage, it should be possible to re-flashing the BIOS module once more, using special version of BIOS and crisis disk BIOS.
    Usually the authorized Toshiba maintainer in your country should be able to re-flash of the module using this disc of crisis.

    I also read in this forum that some people managed to re-flash EPROM module using some 3rd party crisis disk found somewhere in the internet but it still does not
    The ASP will therefore probably be your last resort

    However, to use the forums advanced search option to find related discussions on the crisis disk BIOS could be interesting for you

  • CPU and BIOS update problem

    I have a M57P 6395 33 M system and some time ago I added an E8500 CPU, I thought it would work even if Lenovo not listed the E8200, E8400. I was a little disappointed and I still wonder WHY lenovo gets SO specific with CPU connection. I don't see why she accepts only 2 CPUs and no other?

    Well, I bit the bullet and found an E8400 to put in the machine. I added CPU, removed the MB battery and left out for a while then went back on the new shoe, set all the necessary info. The first part of the BIOS screen mentions that there lies an E8400 (as he did for the E8500) but when it goes through the boot process it is said AGAIN that the CPU code is not enough to recognize the E8400. I am now confused.

    When I updated the BIOS, I used the that I've been led to believe was the GOOD .54KT23AUS (through the windows), but I still get the error 0167. It would be better for me to put the back E8200, re run the BIOS update using a CD?

    and there is another update of BIOS listed for the M57P 2RKT64A, I wonder if it would be better? It is not for use on 6395 but, the FIRST thing listed for THIS update is an update of firmware of CPU.

    I know that this means not much to all the world and I hear people say 'why bother? ' but I would use the machine as I'm n ot offer a more recent machine as I am a pensioner.

    A little help please.

    Thanks a lot for the quick response. I tried Flash via the CD with the E8400 in and it would not allow me to do when he came up with the error of CPU to half way through. I have since updated the E8200 back and did the BIOS update through the CD. The machine seems to have taken the update of the better BIOS this time but, the E8400 still does not work

    As for the E8400 CPU, I have an Intel CPU program on the computer and deepening classified by it for the E8400 says it's A07? However, I can't find any info on it. I guess I either will set up with hitting the F2 key when I start with the E8400 inside or just keep the E8200.

    I finnd the info on these rather confusing processors. The Intel CPU app I have gives me different information from a site like CPU world. The TDP of the processors are 65W but the ONLY thing I see different is the deepening of the base. The E8200 is listed as C0, while the E8400/8500 are E0. Why who would have much effect on the use of the more major? You would have thought that Lenovo engineers could make the system accepts the E0 revision or what is Lenovo wants to sell a new machine?

    Like I said, it's a shame that Lenovo is so affected by these machines with tunnel vision. Well
