Question about updating the BIOS for satellite P100-313

I want to update BIOS on my laptop. I tried to the Toshiba support for the update page and there are two different versions: 4, 00 - Win and 1, 40 - win. Both versions are from 09/07, but I have no idea of the version of the wich I'm supposed to choose. Could someone help me please?

Thank you very much in advance



I agree with Andrew. Think twice before you take BIOS update. Is there a reason to do the update of the BIOS? Have you noticed a strange behavior with your laptop or the reason must be updated?

  • Question about updating the BIOS for Qosmio G20

    I downloaded the updated the BIOS of my pc, not the Qosmio, the instructions say it will unpack into 3 files, one being a floppy disk installation. When I unzip on my desktop pc, it makes a file that s too big for a floppy and he won t unzip further because it locks up my pc.

    Is it safe to make it work on my desktop pc it can unzip then in the three files and this will affect my BIOS or y at - it somewhere that I can download the floppy part on its own to load on a floppy?


    Just a question;
    You have downloaded the Qosmio G20 BIOS on the desktop computer, unpacked and now you want it please on the diskette in the floppy drive.
    Is this good?

    So now my suggestion;
    Firstly that the Qosmio G20 BIOS and other BIOS Toshiba cannot be updated using the floppy! This isn't traditional BIOS!
    The BIOS from the Toshiba page must be updated when the Windows operating system is running!

    By the way: you can unpack the BIOS on your desktop computer, but don t try to run all files, because the bad BIOS can damage the motherboard ROM module!

    Hello world

    I have a SATELLITE U400-10 oC (PSU40E-00R00EG3). It is an old product, but once I always love use regularly.

    Recently, I bought a battery for this device upgrade. Unfortunately, it does not recognize the laptop. The work of the battery, but I don't you all information about the charge level. I tried various tricks 'reset' (removing ACPI Microsoft in the list of the drivers installed, running down the battery completely etc..).

    I think the BIOS might be exceeded and I'd like to update. Unfortunately, the Web of Toshiba site does not list updates for him more. Still, someone has access to updates the BIOS for this?

    The BIOS is a Phoenix currently to version 4.70.


    N my BIOS of opinion has nothing to do with it. Battery can be replaced, and if you use compatible batteries they should be recognized correctly. Here is the list of all compatible batteries:

    Purchased one of these and original Toshiba product (label Toshiba) or a product without a name?

    If this isn't the case, where I could get a file to Flash BIOS for satellite A60-106?


    Sorry, but you question is a bit confusing.

    Post edited by: kirekk

    Qosmio F50 - 10 k belongs to the series of PQF55E.
    If you want to update the BIOS, you will need to use the BIOS exactly for the F50 PQF55E series.

    The European driver Toshiba page provides BIOS for Vista 32-bit and 64-bit OS.
    But this does not mean that you cannot use the Win XP

    I think you can use the Win XP but the fact is that the BIOS has been optimized for Vista and not XP

    The BIOS update should work also on XP, but in some rare cases the update cannot be performed and in this case, you will need to the Toshiba preinstalled the operating system in order to update the BIOS

  • Question about updating the BIOS and drivers


    First time user. How will I know if I need to update bios and drivers? I don't want to go crashing my system, just because Toshiba say these items are available for my laptop! They were probably in the updates of windows?

    Help, please.

    Hi Andy

    Welcome to our small community
    First a little advice you should always write the name of your laptop.

    OK now, to you in general I have a question would not recommend to update anything if you laptop and operating system is stable and you don t have problems.
    Of course the update of the driver is not risky, but I would only run updates some compatibility problems with 3rd party software or hardware appears.

    The update of the BIOS is risky. Wrong or bad BIOS update procedure could damage the ROM module on the map. So be careful.

  • Question about updating the BIOS

    can someone explain what a bios driver is and what it does does.l have noticed that my model has an update available, is useful to do or do not l notice the difference.thanks in advance


    If your laptop has problems that cannot be resolved with an update of the driver if a new version of the BIOS could solve some problems. But as Sylvain said if the laptop works correctly you do not need to do any update of the BIOS because the incorrect BIOS procedure may damage the motherboard.

    Good bye

  • Question about upgrading the CPU for Satellite 1110-Z14


    My satellite 1110-z14 has a processor intel mobile celeron @ 1.5 ghz. The processor is based on architecture p4 - it should be a northwood-256.
    Is it possible to upgrade the processor?

    1110-z20 is powered by the mobile celeron @ 2.0 ghz - all other technical specifications except the hard drive are the same... (ati radeon m6 with 16 MB, usb 1.1 mob and so on...).

    What do you think, can I upgrade the processor?
    Can what cpu I use?

    Thanks for your replies!


    AFAIK the 1110 series computer is equipped with an Intel 845MZ system controller.
    I found some details about Intel 845MZ chipset on the Intel page. It must be able to manage the Mobile Intel Pentium 4 - M with 400 MHz FSB Processor
    On the Intel page, you can find the entire family of the CPU.

    But generally the replacement of CPU and the upgrade is not recommended and no one can say whether the OS will run stable after these updates, so be careful.

  • Can I update the BIOS for Satellite series C50 - A?





    Toshiba service station informs you of new updates published on the page of the Toshiba UE driver.

    However, I think that if your laptop works pretty well, the update is not very necessary.

  • Forgotten password user for Satellite P100-313

    I forgot the password of the user for Satellite P100-313. Can I remove the password without professional help. Please help me.

    Good bye

    Hi Lukas.

    If it's the BIOS password you have forgotten, then you will need to take your laptop to a repairer authorized to have the BIOS reset.

    If it's just your username password in Windows you've forgotten, then you can start in safe mode and use the "Administrator" account to reset your password. Just press F8 during the boot sequence to get the option to boot into node without DANGER.
