Portege R200 cannot set on the BIOS boot sequence

Hi all.

Our R200 entered mode of hibernation after that the battery power is low, then by some unfortunate twist of fate, the battery got deleted accidentally. Now it does not start correctly because every time it displays a BSOD stating Unmountable_Boot_Volume.

I could solve this problem easily by disabling the hiberfil.sys file, which is the reason for the BSOD, if only I could change the boot order. Unfortunately, enter the BIOS, I am only able to access the first page where the only editable elements are time, date, and passwords. Pressing Pageup and Pagedn does nothing. The BIOS is updated to the last appearing on this site.

Pressing F12 or F2 when the toshiba logo and icons appear does nothing no more. It's a HARD disk 1.8 "and there are no adapters available in our region. I can boot from a CD if and only if I take the HD. But then, it is useless since I can't fix it like that. It is not recognized if I it reconnect after booting. When I reboot, it does the BSOD thing again. It is becoming a frustrating cycle.

I scoured these forums for other ways to boot from the CD and apply the suggestions, like hitting 'c', nothing helps.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Hi, the CWB
What about the boot from usb?
a stick with a live like bartpe or similar system...

hard drive cannot be recognized once you have started your machine, because the boot when Initializes the hardware...

the drive is correctly recognized by the bios?

    Hi Dominic,

    Are you able to get into BIOS to make changes?

    If so, you can try to reset the default settings of the BIOS and check.

    NOTE: Change (CMOS) BIOS/complementary metal oxide semiconductor 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.

    You can also try to remove all external usb devices that can be connected to the system and start-up and see if the system boots.

    I am able to get into the BIOS, but it seems to be limited.
    It is said there are three pages, and to use the pgup and pgdn to edit pages, it does not work.

    I tried with a USB keyboard and remove the keyboard of the Tablet, but it does not work either.

    Can someone help me please.


    That s strange.
    First of all, you can boot from the CD by pressing F12 and then you could choose ODD as a boot device.

    Secondly it s interesting to know whether certain passwords (user or supervisor password) have been defined, because this kind of password could restrict by changing BIOS options.

  • Cannot use the fingerprints of the Bios boot drive

    I installed Vista Ultimate x 64 on my Lenovo X 200 Tablet.
    But there is a strange problem with the fingerprint reader. In Windows, the RPF works very well.
    But I also want to use from the bios. While I do not enter a password.

    So I activated this functions of fingerprints on windows software and added a few fingerprints to start.
    But it does not work. The X 200 is the only conventional system for password! No message on fingerprints.
    Predesktop authentication is enabled in the Bios.

    Is there something else I could do?

    The x 64 Version of F´ingerprint Reader can't define that. If I installed a 32-bit Version and the Version 32 bits of the fingerprint reader. I am able to get the RPF from the Bios.

    So problem solved

  • In the BIOS boot device options


    I want to use my USB to be bootable since my laptop Winxdows XP.  When I go to the BIOS to change the settings,

    the Boot Options available are:

    Startup CD-ROM (ENABLE)

    Boot disk (ENABLE)

    (DISABLE) internal network card boot


    USB disk on key

    USB floppy drive


    Portable hard drive

    USB hard drive

    Please indicate which of these Boot Options should I 'ACTIVATE' and

    that the boot ORDER should I choose to be at the top: -.

    1. If I want to boot from my USB key USB

    2. If I want to boot my Portable external hard drive

    3. If I want to boot from my CD/DVD Rom

    4. If I want to boot from my laptop

    The "boot" of Word to say 'start' in language computer, right?

    So if I chose to boot from my USB key, my laptop cannot start to load Windows XP because it normal would be more until I go back to the BIOS to change the setting?

    Why cannot it not auto answer to the user's choice to start the Windows?

    BTW, what does "Starting the internal network card" means?

    Please notify.

    Thank you


    To see if you can boot from a USB key, you must go into your BIOS and look at the boot order.  If you see "USB stick" in the list, then you can probably - but it should be placed in the order before the drive hard to make it work.

    If you want a boot disc/USB drive for repair purposes, I highly recommend the free Hirens Boot CD.  This CD comes with a bunch of diagnosis and repair integrated tools.  If you can't fix it with this CD, it cannot be fixed without having to reinstall Windows.  Of course, this is not Microsoft.

    Don't be fooled by the fake download links.  The correct link is a file .zip downstairs in a light green rectangle with a drive icon.

  • set up the BIOS password

    I have a p7-1240 and you want to reinstall Windows 7. "When you get into the bios, he keeps asking a ' set password 'when try to do something. Cannot change the order of boot without it.

    Does anyone know this password? Several solutions have been applied to this problem... call to HP... using the CMOS switch... and pulling the battery... all these actions did not

    If anyone has the password or a viable alternative, it would be greatly appreciated. Know that I am the sole owner of this machine and I never put a password on my bios.

    What the devil?

    Thanks for all the help with this particular number Cheryl.

    The Solution:

    Please note that the password switch is in the lower right corner of the Board of Directors very close to all of the SATA connectors and it's well hidden.  The CMOS switch is more located in the room near the battery and pretty easy to find.


    I made three different operations all very similar, but something seems to do the trick.

    First of all, I followed the manufacturer's instructions to clear the bios password.  Then I repeated the procedure with the machine plugged but POWERED down.  (Be careful here) Someone had mentioned the need for a residual current clear the password, and because the case was open I tried anyway. During this procedure, I managed to drop the small plastic connector and I was unable to recover after 20 minutes that my case has access by only one side.  The switch clear Bios should be left open.  That is to say, he didn't have plastic connector on any of the 3 pins.

    I've run procedures one after another to clear the bios password without having to restart the machine...

    I'm not sure what actually deleted the password, but I now have full access to the bios.

    I hope that everyone in the same situation as this information will be useful.

    Thanks again for all the help

  • PROTECTED M100 does not start on an internal CD, even though it is set in the BIOS

    Well, I have a Toshiba protégé m100 here I think.

    I set the boot priority in the BIOS such as CD-ROM > LAN > FDD > HDD

    I restart, does not work. Starts directly in HD and loads the operating system.

    I also tried pressing ESC or else bring up the start menu pop up.
    I'm sailing on the 1 that looks like a single disk CD. I hit enter on that, and it always starts in HD.

    The CD rom works. The current operating system is Ubuntu. I can go into Ubuntu and watch the windows XP CD...

    But it won't let boot me from any cd, it doesn't even look like she is trying to find one. Does not sound or rattling noise.

    (and for the record, I'll since Ubuntu XP to work, non-identifying preferably lol).

    Edit: Oh yes, I had to disable the LAN network card in the bios because the boot priority would ignore the cd again in any case and find the lan connection or something... So with him off, Yes, it jumps to the LAN too now, to boot from HD.

    Post edited by: chriswf

    In my opinion in the BIOS, set HDD as first boot device.

    For some reason if you need to use the other device as first boot device you can choose it manually in the start menu when you use F12 at startup.

  • Portege R200 - how to replace the HARD drive

    Fundamental questions about the Toshiba Portege R200 (purchased model birthday Thailand August 2005) are:
    (1) Please provide instructions to remove the hard drive (non-functional) (illustrations if possible)
    (2) model has enough space inside for hard drive 2.5 inch? (Impossible to locate 1.8 inches and below, to get the results of [expensive] calls to Toshiba - of interest only)

    (1) while 3 years warranty in force I trecked (expensive) of Malaysia in Bangok (where to buy) at the headquarters of Toshiba (if you know Bangkok taxi drivers, you'll know what a test or going around in circles and the nonsense in the fire that was)... Toshiba agreed HD vibrating but reported would take 3 to 10 weeks to get the HD replacement (!?)
    (2) I was a few weeks later to the r - u (to tie)... They told me they couldn't help; I "should contact my provider...". This is an Asian model, in Europe, we cannot... etc etc.
    (3) a week later the HD has no
    (4) I contacted Toshiba but they told me the warranty expired 7 days before...
    (5) since this time I phoned and was put on hold for Toshiba in the region of London (several times), Singapore (3 times), Thailand (well, if you know how it goes, say-no more, shots of elbow-boost)...

    I got nowhere. But were invited by the media to bring it to the headquarters of Thai (yet)... It's all right, I'll book a flight and hotel etc now, shouldn't cost all that much more than the computer cost me initially...

    Oh, another thing, not very important: to help out me, I bought a lighter machine at Toys R us... 300 quid... for the love of antiquity I always want to get the old dog to this shiny Silver Anniversary edition slim R200 works again...
    I have a 2.5 "HD available (recond and costs all 9 quid in Brummagem) but before I destroy the old R200 dog by ineptitude... (and lost to carefree annoyance no assistance of Toshiba)... and/or on how to remove HD, please?


    I have seen words about your question.
    AFAIK the R200 was equipped with the utility of the HARD disk protection. It is a feature to reduce the risk of damage to the HARD disk.
    Using the acceleration sensor built into the computer drive HARD protection detect vibrations, shocks and sings in the computer and automatically moves the HDD Head somewhere course, in order to reduce the risk of damage.
    But this function does not ensure that the HARD drive will not damage! It reduces the risk of damage!

    However, the HARD drive can be removed very easily.
    At the bottom of the unit, you will find the HARD drive Bay. It s close to the battery (on the left).
    You need to remove two screws to get access to the HARD disk 1.8.

    PS: You can use disks hard only 1.8. The 2.5 hard drives are not compatible.
    I discovered that you can use a TOSHIBA 60GB 4,200 rpm 1.8 HDD HDD1544BZK01

  • Portege R200: How to reset the fingerprint reader?

    Hi, I got a damaged probably fixable Portege R200 (no, it's not stolen, legitimate sales). The machine does not start in its current state. If I fixed and find the fingerprint reader enabled, is it possible to erase it and start again (I'm not interested in the contents of the existing drive, I'm happy to format and reinstall a new OS image)

    Referring to the Toshiba are OK if that's what it takes, but I don't want to buy and spend more money if it is completely non-recoverable because of the safety lock fixing. Any advice or info much appreciated

    Thank you



    To the extent where I knew the Omnipass Fingerprint Reader utility is responsible for this security.
    This software is to be found in the control panel.
    You can add and remove profiles (user) and set the settings to encrypt/decrypt the contents of the hard drive.

  • Portege 3500: missing system32 - update the BIOS?

    Hello world

    I got a Portege 3500 PIII-M 1.33 GHz, which has been infected by a virus. I tried to reinstall Windows Xp, but the SYSTEM32 file is missing or damaged.

    I downloaded the BIOS driver and tried to install it via an external CD drive, but it did not work.
    Could you please help me at all?
    I am very concerned about the situation

    Can't wait to hear from you

    Thank you



    I can t believe that the virus may damage the BIOS!
    I think that you have updated the BIOS with the wrong procedure.
    Have you checked the BIOS update document?

    In any case, the fault of system32 has nothing to do with the BIOS and I don t understand why you started the update of the BIOS.

    The Portege 3500 does not support an internal hard drive, and so if you want to install the operating system, you must use a compatible external PC card reader.
    I assume you are using this player to start.

    If some error messages appear during the installation, you must first format the whole HARD drive and delete all partitions and then try again to boot from the recovery CD!

  • T530: Cannot get into the bios


    The issue of this link does not seem to be solved with the last update of the BIOS (or it's a similar question).

    I'm running 2.04 and since I have set to UEFI boot only I can't get into the BIOS. When I press Enter to interrupt normal startup the screen goes black, it seems to interrupt the boot but nothing looms on the screen. Starting continues after a few seconds (I guess that after the time-out of the screen of the interruption).

    There seems to be a problem with the code modesetting, because if I connect to an external monitor to the VGA port everything works correctly.

    Note that what is happening with optimus, as well as with only the active Intel card.

    Thank you.

    This seems to be fixed with the last BIOS update (2.07).

    Although a little more comments would be welcome.

    Thank you.
