Error on update of the BIOS: solved!
I used Acronis Disk Director 10, resized my D: drive and created in the free space of a FAT16 partition. It doesn't have to be huge, I got at least, about 7 MB, then assign the primary partition. I copied the. ROM file to the new E: drive and restart. After reboot, I hit F4, entered the program easy Flash, and it immediately detected the new E: drive. The BIOS updated itself, and the date last update 31/03/08 read on-screen. Good enough for me. The system will turn off completely when its done. Now, when I started the system, Windows Vista crashed on the start screen, and my heart skipped a beat. It turns out that when you reflash the BIOS, it resets all default settings. I got the SATA controller in compatibility mode when I installed Vista, so all I had to do after the reflash is defined, he return to compatibility mode. Windows Vista booted without a hiccup after that. Yay!

Just got the new spectrum x 360 with processor i7 to set Lake. I love most everything on it, but it's hot in the upper left corner, and temperatures are in the order of 80-90 during a normal charge. Research of solutions possible and a common solution seems to ensure that the Bios is updated.
HP Wizard jumped by chance in a message on a Bios updated available. Perfect timing, so I thought. Update downloaded BIOS ok, but during the installation, I got the error c2-error message: region is write protected.
Reflection on the update of the Bios? I know that one of the recommendations is not not to date Bios at least that something does not work. Everything seems to work fine, but I think I should update it Bios to see if it solves the problem of heat. Thoughts on that?
Thank you. It's the strangest thing. Despite having the error message above and the Bios update process pretending stops, when I rebooted hours later, the Bios updated. I checked, and it is now the latest version.
Guess my problem is solved.
Last weekend, I bought my laptop and I can't seem to do the update of the BIOS (from 1.30 to 1.40). I use Vista 32 Home Premium SP1 (which came preinstalled in the phone) and after downloading, unpacking and running the file provided by the TOSHIBA (PO10140M.exe) site, I get the following error message:
C:\Users\Dado\AppData\Local\Temp\iscA516tmp\insyde flash.exe could not be run.
I don't know it's the right file, because it was one mentioned, after completing all the fields in the search screen update BIOS.
I don't understand what the problem is because the laptop is brand new.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
You are an administrator?
Try right-clicking the BIOS file and select "Run as Administrator"
Also to disable your antivirus, it can block the update of the BIOS.
My computer crashed during the BIOS update recommended to treat the blue screen error message. I have turned it off completely and now it won't start at all. No lights turn on or it's like there is no power getting to the machine. My outlet does work as I have tested. This could mean my battery is dead? I tried to remove and clean the contacts or the update of the BIOS had something to do with it?
Hi, Phil the A60 sometimes fails started well only very rarely that incidentally that happened to me once. To solve this problem requires the removal and re-sitting of the battery pack. However, in your case, it sounds very likely the BIOS update has failed unfortunately is a return trip to Toshiba.
Laptop: HP Pavilion CTO Edition entertainment dv6t Quad - b 6, 00
WIndows 8 Professional 64-bit
HP connection manager: 22.214.171.124
I received an update of the BIOS via the HP Support Assistant, which is SP59755 Version F.1BAp1
Now, HP connection manager does not start and gives a fatal error exception. I uninstalled and reinstalled through sp54630, but it does not solve the issue.
Any ideas out there?
There are some things you need to do before you start using the HP connection manager.
1. first download and install Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 from here and restart the system.
2. download andi install HP software framework from here and restart the system.
3. When you steps above to download and install HP Connection Manager from here.
This software allows to control easily all wireless devices, but it is not necessary to have it in the system.
Anyone know if it is possible to update the bios of a r.620 (with iDrac Express) on Ubuntu 12.04.3 remote.
I have problems of the E5-2630 Intel processor performance and read that it could be solved in update of the bios to the latest version:

I don't think that we create updates designed to work under Ubuntu. The easiest way for you to make the updates would be through the iDRAC. Connect to the web interface via the IP address of the iDRAC and choose the option to update and restore in the left column.
You can run windows 32 bit Dell Update Packages (DUP) from there. You can update THE system BIOS, firmware, PERC, iDRAC firmware and most other firmware the iDRAC using this method. Is the independent operating system, is a great way to make updates when you run Ubuntu, ESXi or other OS generally don't write us updates for.
I have a question how update of the BIOS under Windows 7 ultimate x 64. I downloaded the latest version of the BIOS for my laptop (Toshiba Tecra A8-185 PTA83E). After having unpacked there is only the .exe file.
When I try to run this file, he said, that my OS is not supported. When I run it in compatibility mode (with Vista or XP), it starts the upgrade, but gives me an error: "the BIOS upgrade is failure (8). BIOS is not able on this configuration. "What should I do? I really need a new BIOS.
Can I run it at the start of the USB key, or whatever?
Why do you need a new BIOS? You may notice some problems with the laptop or why are you trying to update?
However, I think that the update should only be done on the pre-installed Windows version (XP or Vista). I guess that this update n t tested and designed to update Windows 7 so I think that would be the reason why you can t.
So to install Windows from the Toshiba Recovery disk and try to update again. It should work.
I recently tried an update of the bios after doing a clean install of windows 7 64-bit. The process is complete and the phone has rebooted. In the end, the laptop could not start and just displays a black screen.
I tried some of the methods on the internet using recovery from the crisis on a usb key, but have had no success
I'm not so im using the wrong combination of Fn + B etc or what but could really do with some tips
Thanks in advance
I put t think there is much you can do if the BIOS update failure. Usually in this case the ROM module needs to be reflashed, but this is possible only from an authorized service provider.
In my opinion, you should contact the guy and ask for help. I m sure they can help you solve this problem. :)
I have Satellite M40-184 and I want to Flash the BIOS with a bootable CD, but can't do it.
I downloaded the bios file - 20070709161345.zip and extract the file, but it gives me error to run the file.
I extracted the exe with rar and I saw an image file, I burned it but it is not bootable.
I have not now what to do WHOW can I FLASH THE BIOS NOT BY WINDOWS?
I read the flashing method, but it has nothing to do with the file that is downloading.
The driver from Toshiba site doesn't provide the traditional BIOS but only the BIOS that can be updated only running Windows OS!
This means that you will not be able to boot from the floppy drive using the unzipped BIOS file.
It s .exe file and should be conducted under OS.
I think it should be clear now.
By the way; the update of the BIOS is risky and if you use bad BIOS or bad update procedure can damage the ROM. module
I'm trying to update my BIOS version 2.00 - WIN for Satellite Pro L40 PSL4BE.
My OS is Vista 64 bit.
I downloaded the file and run the .exe but nothing happens.
I also tried to copy the files on a diskette and start with a floppy disk, however, I get an error message saying to remove the diskette in the drive on startup. Any help please?
First update the BIOS for Satellite Pro L40 is based on Windows it of possible to update in DOS mode.
Also, I checked the Web from Toshiba site and I can only find a BIOS for Windows XP and Windows Vista 32-bit.
It seems that the update of the BIOS is not supported for Vista 64-bit.
If you want to update, you need to change to 32 bit Vista or XP. Then you can update the BIOS.
Don t forget this version 2.00 - WIN is for Vista 32 bit and 5.50 - WIN XP.
Updated HP had me to download an update of the BIOS today (10/01/13) that crashed my computer. He showed a blue screen and says that the BIOS is not ACPI compatible.
Here is how I fixed my computer:
- I restarted my computer and kept pressing the ESC key.
- A menu came, and I pressed F10 to access the BIOS options.
- I selected the option "roll back BIOS.
- Once the BIOS has been restored, the computer restarted and says that Windows failed to open and he began a process of auto repair.
- During this process, he asked if I wanted to restore the computer to a previous state, while it was working properly. I said yes.
- When he was done, the computer was working again.
This may solve your problem if happen you, or has already occurred.
Finally, HP came out with a new firmware for this machine: F2. B
Fix/development-Provides security improved for UEFI EDK2.
NOTE: HP recommend transitioning to this BIOS update without delay.
-Fixed an intermittent problem where the system stops working when the system is turned on (started) while a USB device is connected to the system.
I bought my desktop HP Pavilion Elite m9152p on computer a year ago and I had a few problems at the start. I bought a retail upgrade to Windows 7 Ultimate x 64 and I did a clean install, but it was the same thing before on Vista Ultimate x 64. Sometimes when I turn on my PC, it won't really do anything--sometimes I hear a beep POST, but there is nothing displayed on screen. I turn my PC off, wait a minute or two and try to feed it upwards. If it doesn't, I just repeat until it finally works. Now my PC will hang on to the blue HP bios screen and just stay there. The version of the bios on the screen is v5.25 and drivers of HP Support & shows a v5.36 available for download, but it will not install on my Windows 7 operating system. I tried to run it in Windows Vista SP2 compatibility mode, but nothing helped. I'm NOT GOING to restore my PC to Vista using my recovery disks, or with the help of my Vista Ultimate retail discs just to install a BIOS update day and then reformat/reinstall Windows 7 again.
Is there a way to run the updates to the BIOS 'Vista' only and other drivers on my Windows 7 computer? HP will release updated drivers Windows 7-compatible and updates soonHP Pavilion Elite m9152p - Intel Core2Quad Q6600 @2. 4 GHz, 4 GB RAM, 2 TB of disk HARD, Radeon HD 5770, Windows7 x 64
While I don't guarantee it not works - Vidya had the right idea, but you need a little more information.
Start running the softpaq, go beyond the opening screen with details, etc., then when it you ask to perform the update, stop (but do not close the screen).
go to BACK - using the Administrator option
type the following command
find a folder with the AFUWIN. File EXE and CHDIR to the name of the temp folder
ex: dir/s AFUWIN. EXE
Then, perform the AFUWIN update with the information behind it:
It should finish and then you can restart after you close the Softpaq.
No guarantee that it will solve your problem-, but which should enable the BIOS update to run.

When I try to download the update of the BIOS for my chromebook 13 hp, it will start to install because the HP Wizard Installer does not work correctly. It just keeps telling me to try the Setup Wizard again at a later date whenever I click on run/save the update. How can I make this?
Thanks for posting your query on the Microsoft Community.
According to the description of the problem, you can not install the BIOS update. The question could be if some restricted to settle security software or third party services/application is limiting.
I you suggest to perform the clean boot and then try to disable the security software temporary, if any installed on your computer and then try to install the update to the BIOS.
Perform clean boot.
Put your system to the clean boot state helps determine if third-party applications or startup items are causing the problem. You must follow the steps in the article mentioned below to perform a clean boot.
How to perform a clean boot in Windows
Note: refer to "How to reset the computer to start normally after a boot minimum troubleshooting" to prepare the computer to start as usual after a repair.
Temporarily disable security software.
Note: Antivirus software can help protect your computer against viruses and other security threats. In most cases, you should not disable your antivirus software. If you need to disable temporarily to install other software, you must reactivate as soon as you are finished. If you are connected to the Internet or a network, while your antivirus software is disabled, your computer is vulnerable to attack.
After completing both steps now try to install the update from the Web site of the manufacturer (HP) and see if it helps you to install the update.
Warning of the BIOS:
BIOS change / semiconductor (CMOS) to complementary metal oxide settings can cause serious problems that may prevent your computer from starting properly. Microsoft cannot guarantee that problems resulting from the configuration of the BIOS/CMOS settings can be solved. Changes to settings are at your own risk.
Hope it would help. If problem persists always post back with the current state of your computer and the result of the proposed suggestion, we will be happy to help you.
Hoping someone could help.
Yesterday, I received my Mini of click on Satellite and I currently support after discovering there is a certain drivers are installed before you can actually use the thing.
While the laptop is in charge, I try to download the update of the BIOS on my laptop, so I can transfer it to my laptop once it is fully charged... I did have problems downloading tastes of the driver wifi for example but when I try to download the BIOS update opens a new and tab where Toshiba ask me a username and password? I tried to enter my username and password I used to register on this site and I also tried using another computer to download it, but without success. It is worth noting that I could partially download the file last night but then it failed to half way through download?
Thank you very much
I am eager to read an answer that helps on these issues...
I have a Toshiba Satellite Pro U400 (PSU41E) running Windows 7 x 64 and I try to update the BIOS to version 4.70 to 4.00.
Whenever I try to do it from Windows using WinPhlash which comes with the download on the Toshiba site it seems to freeze when you try to Flash the new BIOS.
I connected as the local administrator, tried to use other programs flash and even tried to do from a USB flash drive with no luck.
Can someone please help me and explain how do I update the BIOS?
> tried to use other flash programs
Never use other flash programs! In the worst case, you could damage the ROM module and then it must be replaced. Use only the program flash Toshiba that is tested and designed for laptop and the version of the BIOS.
The update of the BIOS program is also designed for Windows, it s a Windows Update program.
Satellite Pro U400 wasn t comes with Windows 7 so I guess you did your own installation. Value added package is required for the update of the BIOS program and can be downloaded on the European driver of Toshiba download page where is your laptop model:
http://EU.computers.Toshiba-Europe.com > support & downloads > download drivers
