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

    My aunt was having problems with his A210, so she bought herself a new and gave me the old one. The problems that she has been seen was the computer kept stopping at random.

    > Has anyone else experienced problems with the A210 of overheating? All solutions?
    Hi mate

    I m a Satellite A210 owner and to be honest, a higher internal temperature might occur if the laptop would not get enough air to cool the internal parts like CPU and GPU.
    A few weeks ago, I used the laptop on the sofa I don't the opinion of t that the cooling that are placed at the bottom of the unit fans were clogged because of my position relax, if you know what I mean ;)

    After a short period of use, the laptop shut down automatically I was a little surprised, but I realized that air could not circulate, and so the laptop overheated

    Now, I m using the unit only on the desktop. This method is recommended, and it helps to keep the temperature at the lower level

  • Compaq dc7800: DC7800 CPu id and BIOS update probem


    My first post here, I hope you get what I'm trying to say.

    Well, I have this old compaq dc7800 sff and I managed to level it's OS to Windows 10.

    And now, I would like to update its bios and CPU id, but I can't run those exe, I downloaded on the cd7800 support site.

    I know that these bios update programs and so forth are not published for Windows 10, but I thought that windows7 versions would work.

    But they did not.

    For some reason, I got the the messege that "software publisher has refused to run this program on this computer.

    While this mean?

    I can't run these programs even with administrator privileges, I get the same messages?

    Because of Windows 10? Or what?

    The reason why I came across this problem was that I tried to update the CPU of the Q6600 to Q9550 and I got the error of CPU - ID firmware.


    It is very easy to update the BIOS on a dc7800 without being under Windows.

    In the menu of the BIOS on the file tab, there is a rom flash system command.

    All you have to do is put the BIOS files on a USB stick formatted with the FAT32 file system.

    Rather than go though all the steps to get the BIOS files, I've zipped or less than joint under attachments.

    Unzip them and copy the content of the file of the folder (not the folder), for your USB flash drive.

    Plug the flash drive into your PC and restart it, tap the F10 key to access the bios, select the file menu and on this list will be a rom flash system command.

    What to choose, and the PC will 'see' the files on the flash drive.  Follow the instructions on the screen to Flash the BIOS.

    I have attached files to the latest revision of the BIOS (1.32 Rev. A (6 Dec 2011)).

    If you still get the microcode error after updated the BIOS with the latest version, let me know, because then update the firmware, and it is a much more complex process.

  • 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 http://support.microsoft.com/kb/953356 and is the registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\Intelppm this?

    How can I flasch BIOS with other versions,
    His big problem to work

    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 http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com/innovation/download_bios.jsp?service=EU
    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 http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/kb0/HTD9502M10000R01.htm, 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

  • Equium M40x-189 and BIOS update

    There are updates of bios for my laptop, and so I thought I would try a flash update. I can only find the Trad version and not the flash version of Win.
    the problem is that the traditional flash update file asks you to create a bootable cd for the update procedure. Software CD, Toshiba in their wisdom have provided a cutting of the version of "save now". Guess what this special version of toshiba cannot create a bootable cd you have to spend £25 for the full version.
    Someone knows, there is a version of the flash upgrade Win

    Hello Andy

    As far as I know just BIOS updates listed on the download from Toshiba site are available. I guess that your unit is a relatively new. If you have any problems with this device do not do any BIOS update. Only if there is a problem the update of the BIOS by using external devices or something like that is recommended.

    Good bye

  • 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.

    What to first say if you installed XP on your laptop, then you should also update the BIOS to the version of Win XP.
    The BIOS update must be performed on Windows XP!
    Simply run the exe file and follow the instructions on the screen.

    Regarding the sound issue.
    Well this problem is not related to the BIOS, but you have not installed the XP patches!
