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.

  • Tecra R10 - 10J: BIOS update abandoned "this computer is not supported.


    My laptop is a Tecra R10 - 10J PartNumber PTRB1E-00D002FR, 1.40 BIOS version 11/13/2008.

    I recently bought and installed two modules of 4 GB RAM (8 GB). Enter the BIOS setup, I found 8 GB. Windows 7 64 bit also detects the 8 GB, but uses only 3.80! MemTest and diagnosis of CPU - Z are good for all of the 8 GB. I went from RAM modules from one location to another, but nothing has changed. If I replace a module of 4GB by a 2 GB memory, Windows 7 uses 5.80 is going well. Same result as any module of memory of 4 GB or slot I use.

    I suppose that problem comes from the BIOS. The 1.40 version does not support memory mapped IO functionality.

    So I followed the instructions on "http://fr.computers.toshiba-europe.com/innovation/?download_drivers_bios.jsp?" to find the last good package to update BIOS for Tecra R10 - 10J. I downloaded and ran the BIOS310?. exe, but received the error message "this computer is not supported"?

    Can someone tell me how to upgrade my BIOS or did someone has a better idea to activate the full 8 GB of RAM support?

    Thank you for all!

    You must install the VAP (value added package) or if this package is already installed, you must reinstall/upgrade to update it.

    Disable the Antivirus software and disable things of security such as firewalls etc.

    Hope that you're lucky...

    You cannot update the BIOS under Linux and using a victory based version of the BIOS.
    You will need to use the image of preinstalled Toshiba.

  • Portege R700 - BIOS-update 2.20 - WIN does not work

    I have a Portege R700-172-PT311E-03201KGR
    It's a WIN 7 64 bit Machine.

    Current BIOS 1.70
    EC-current Version: 1.40

    For this machine, an update of the BIOS and IT's there.
    So I downloaded the "BIOS220_EC160.exe" update and tried to treat.

    The first message during the update process is: "it is necessary to update the BIOS and THIS.
    When I continue with "Run the update", I get the error message:
    "Error: preparation of updated failed.
    Given the image file is not compatible with this cimputer.

    There is no change in the material of the machine. The only problem I see is that we use McAfee Endpoint Encryption (V6.0.2.6) that could have some influence on the update of the BIOS.

    But I'm not sure.
    Does anyone have an ideas?


    BIOS update is important to you?
    Do you have problems with the laptop?

    I have portable three-year-old BIOS was did not updated

    However, AFAIK the VAP (value added package) must be to get the updated BIOS updated. Also the firewalls and other security and antivirus preinstalled on the system software must be disabled before attempting to update the BIOS.

  • Tecra A10 - 12 H - update BIOS: "this computer is not supported"

    I need to upgrade the BIOS v 1.60 to the latest version of the BIOS. I downloaded from the site of Toshiba bios file (bios - 20091103164158.zip-> P0065v300.exe), but when I try to update comes this question:


    My laptop:
    TECRA A10 - 12H
    Windows 7 32 bit


    Have you installed the VAP (value added package)?

    The VAP is necessary in order to run the BIOS update and Toshiba tools.
    I found a son with the same error message, but the user is using Win XP.

    The problem could be solved by the installation of common Modules (only for Win XP).
    But the VAP is released for Vista and Win 7 and common modules are in the VFR package.

    Updated the BIOS, I downloaded from the section of the Bios Toshiba for Tecra R840-PT429E update, windows7 64 bit.


    Is the a reason to update the BIOS or you want to update the BIOS simply because the new BIOS is available?
    You have a serious problem with the laptop?

    I have no day BIOS, even if the new BIOS is available for my laptop because I have no problems.

    However, the BIOS requires the VAP (value added package).
    This package can be downloaded from the Toshiba UE driver page
    If there is a problem with the VAP, the update of the BIOS would not start.

    So reinstall the VAP to check if this may help

  • Tecra M10 - update of the BIOS says "this computer is not supported.

    Recently refurbished a M10 - 10I to reinstall the operating system. WinXP install at all so I try to update the BIOS as it seems quite old (V1.5). Most recent version (and is available) for this machine seems to be V3.0. Download and try to run the file "P0065V300" and get the message:

    Package for the TOSHIBA BIOS ver.3.3.0
    This computer is not supported

    What can I do? Its supposed to be for this model!

    Also, prefer a version of boot drive, but hey, I can use a version of Windows, assuming that it runs on Win7.


    Tecra M10 - 10I belongs to the series of PTMB1E and according to the page of the Toshiba UE driver, BIOS v3.00 - WIN is the latest BIOS version which is available for this model.

    The BIOS update requires a few additional tools Toshiba as VAP (additional package for Win 7)

    If this driver isn't installed, the update of the BIOS would not work.

    I would be very grateful if you could help me


    I suggest that you contact the manufacturer of the computer to change the BIOS settings and check if it is has updated the BIOS.

    Important: 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.

    Let us know the results. We will be happy to help you further.

  • Portable CQ58, disk recovery "this computer is not supported by the system recovery media.

    Hello HP,.

    I have a laptop CQ58-bf9WM, which had Windows 8.1.  The 320 GB hard drive died and bought a new SATA 500 GB laptop.  had no CD recovery, went online, enter all the important information, serial No., model #, then purchased through HP recovery disk, received the CD (manufacturer 708896-001, 708895-001 708897-001) and put #1 disc in the CD started and that's what I get: this computer is not supported by the system recovery media.  You will not be able to continue to recover this system with these media.  "Error: 0100-169-1855-188 b" then you have the OK, then when you press OK, the laptop shuts down.  I pressed ESC on POST, then I tested memory and the new hard drive and they both passed.  HELP PLEASE!  Thank you

    Should not have anything to do with the new hard-both disk that is at least equal or greater than original ability, they work. It is 'possible' that you have received the wrong set of recovery.

    Thing of OE to check. Enter the BIOS by pressing F10 immediately after turning on (have to press ESC, then F10 to the menu). Is the serial number, model number.etc all intact?

    Salvation of the paths,

    Looks like you are trying to get XP Mode configured, that will install a virtual machine for you to run your legacy programs.  This feature is available in the professional versions, full and Enterprise edition - so your property in this aspect.

    You get this error message because you do not have the chip installed for hardware - assisted virtualization technology and it's good. you don't need more.  Click on this link http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/download.aspx and select your language and edition.  Then scroll down to step 3.  You must download and run the third component called Windows XP Mode Update. This update will remove the requirement that you have the chip mentioned above.

    That should do the trick.

    Hey jpgaprilfool,

    There are many benefits to the latest version of Firefox. Out of curiosity, what program is not compatible with the new Firefox? You should consider your comments for developers so that they can continue to improve the product.

    If you want to roll back to a previous version of Firefox, just take a glance section of the Knowledge Base install an older version of Firefox.
