  • Satellite U300 - how to upgrade the BIOS on a Linux system?

    Attempt to update the BIOS of my U300-153, which is described as an operating system independent on the download page, I find that the upgrade file is provided in
    does not include the files to create a bootable CD, as described in the instructions to the
    IOS http://eu.Computers.Toshiba-Europe.com/innovation/FAQ.jsp?z=234&service=eu&from=faq_selection&CFID=B & FID = TRO0000000b07
    where Option 2 step 2 lists the files that are in the zip, and they are required to make a bootable cd. The files listed are not in the zip.

    It forces me to use Windows. My Windows is broken and I can't fix it, because Windows repairs destroy data (clearly indicated on the packaging of recovery CD) and installations of Linux. My Linux works very well, and I don't want the windows more.

    So how can I upgrade the BIOS? Either:
    1. use a true independent bundle of BONES (ie the promised approach of bootable CD). I can't find such a thing here.
    2 reinstall Windows, which trashes the laptop.

    Any suggestions?

    Is not possible since the BIOS on Toshiba page is a victory-based BIOS version and if you want to update the BIOS then you need to install the Windows operating system and then you can run the exe file

  • Satellite 2800-600 - how to upgrade the Bios/Firmware?

    How can I upgrade the Bios and firmware on my 2800-600? I want to install a new Combodrive. Which drives are supported? Where can I find the drivers and firmware etc... Please let me know. Thank you.

    Another point of view - I bought MS Windows XP Pro and haven´t you have a PC to install it on. Can I install this OS on my Satellite? Will it work? Where can I find the drivers for touchpoint etc etc... Normally, the Toshiba works with Windows ME and I can not use ITunes on ME... if XP would be great - what do you think?

    Hello Jürgen

    In my opinion, if you install the operating system on the unit you you use the recovery CD provided because it has been tested and it works without any problem. But if you want to install another system on your laptop, you can use the original Microsoft OS and all the necessary drivers, you can find the Toshiba site.

  • Satellite A100-386 - how to upgrade the BIOS?


    I wanted just to update my old Satellite A100-386 with 4 GB of RAM (2x2gb Crucial) instead of 1 GB, as I am now running Windows7 Pro 64 bit instead of the original XP 32.

    I read that I had to upgrade the BIOS as mine is v2.00. So, I downloaded the last of them.
    It seems to be an automatic upgrade of BIOS (S10V600.exe) as mentioned on the site Web of Toshiba.
    But when hit the .exe, I have a box of error message saying:
    "LOADPEDRV. "EXE: could not start the service.

    My question is: do I have to be 32-bit OS to run the upgrade of the automatic BIOS or is it possible to Flash the BIOS with a Windows7 64 bit OS run?

    Thanks a lot for all answer as I found no 'how to' in search on this forum.

    Best regards

    Hi FPSim,

    Who said that you need to update the BIOS to upgrade RAM? The maximum RAM capacity depends on the motherboard and chipset and not BIOS.

    Official website of Toshiba, I have seen that the model supports 4 GB of RAM so the BIOS update is not necessary. Increase the RAM and everything is ok.

    I'm trying to update the BIOS of my R700 computers with a command line on Windows 7 (x 86 edition french).
    I am using the version of the BIOS is P007Bv170_EC73V140.

    I downloaded the bios - 20101112151130.zip official website of Toshiba. In the zip file, there is no statement (no file Readme.txt or other help... files).

    Is there a way to upgrade in silent mode in the BIOS?
    Thank you for your help,



    You need to run the exe file you will find in archive zip you downloaded. After this update the BIOS will start.

    But before this update, unzip all files and close all running programs. Also, make sure that you are logged on as administrator.

  • Satellite P300-1EI (PSPCCE) - how to upgrade the BIOS?

    Hello everyone,

    I want to update my BIOS and I am running Windows 7 32 bit. On the Toshiba site, I found this update: of the bios-20090226125740.
    It's the good update?

    How could I do to update Windows (I have no floppy).

    Thanks for your reply.

    Hi banditito,

    The first important question is: BIOS update is really necessary?
    I mean if you notice any problems with your laptop I n t see a reason to update. This update is a bit risky if never touch a system! ;)

    In addition, the update is designed for Windows and you don't need a floppy drive!
    Extract all files from the archive zip and start the update. But before this, close all programs running (also, AntiVirus and firewall), disconnect from the Internet and then start the update.

    Hey mate,

    Are you really sure that the update of the BIOS may solve your problem? I mean the BIOS update is always somewhat risky and in the worst case you could destroy the ROM module So the BIOS shouldn't t update just for fun. ;)

    I hope you find your answer here:

    The good BIOS for your laptop, you can get on the Australian page:

  • How to upgrade the BIOS executes Windows 10

    My second battery (keyboard) has loaded only rarely. Most of the time, even after the days with the computer plugged in, only the battery of the Tablet has been charged. Since October Toshioba service station did not work properly, so I could not update my bios. I now changed for Windows 10 just to see if it would do the trick. I could install all the drivers, but not the BIOS updated. I tried to install them manually, but when I do so in that compatibility mode Windows 8, the system tells me that the "file could not be saved" immediately after having unpacked the software. Clues?

  • NB100 - how to upgrade the BIOS using Linux

    I have searched all afternoon to update the bios on my linux and could not find one thing that works.

    Someone did he do with the more technical?
    Any help or walk through would be great

    I managed to get the BIOS update work. Simply retrieve the machine and install the BIOS update, as a kind of kernelmodule is modified by the update of the system which is responsible for enforcing BIOSupdate.

    After recovering (without applying a system update) just immediately update the BIOS.

  • NB200 - 10G - how to upgrade the BIOS?

    My question may be already answered after reading the posts on this topic. If someone could clarify, I'd appreciate it.

    I bought my wife a NB200 - 10G and she had problems with the battery power. I followed the advice here and changed some of the settings, but not the update of the BIOS. My question is that the BIOS version is 1.2 the available update is 1.6.

    Does that mean I can update 1.2 to 1.6 in a step or are there several steps to perform. ?

    Thank you very much



    Akuma is right. You have to download the latest version of the BIOS (1.6) and start the update. This update contains all the fixes from previous updates so it of not necessary to install the previous updates too.

    But before you start the update, connect the AC adapter. Disable all programs running (also, antivirus, firewall, etc.) and make sure that you are logged on as administrator.

    Good luck!

  • Qosmio G30 - how to upgrade the BIOS?

    I want to update BIOS and I fear that there is a risk that the way in which the process is done safely. Step by step please

    Thank you byee

    Hi vip78!

    I agree with Akuma but another question: why you want to update the BIOS? As you already wrote this update is a bit risky and that s right so this update should only be done if you can see a few problems with the laptop. Otherwise I wouldn t do an update of the BIOS.

    Maybe there is another solution for your problem ;)

  • Satellite M100-165 with XP: how to upgrade the BIOS to use the Vista operating system?


    I use my laptop with Windows XP and BIOS version 2.80.

    I want to install Windows Vista, but when I download the BIOS of compatible v5.40 Vista it says

    "This Bios is only compatible for portable computers with Windows Vista!

    Do NOT install this Bios if you have Windows XP as operating system running! »

    When you download the version 2.80 compatible XP, I got the same message saying that it was not compatible with Vista.

    Now, should I first install Vista with XP compatible BIOS 2.80 and then install the compatible BIOS 5.40 5.40 or Vista install XP first (no traditional update available, only Windows updates are present) and then install Vista?

    I'm afraid of a bad flash by installing the BIOS compatible Vista in XP.


    the best solution would be to do the following:

    1. backup your data and download the drivers for Vista.
    2. make sure that all stored/saved/etc.
    3. install the bios
    4 restart the machine and install Vista
    5. After installing Vista, install drivers and be happy :)

    See you soon
