Question from standby/hibernation on Portege M400(3G) after update BIOS 3.50

After installing 3.50 BIOS update, the machine stopped to switch to manual mode of sleep. He begins to enter standby mode, the screen turns off, switches of the computer during approximately 5 seconds with power led to go off and then restarts.

After reboot, Vista Business 32 reports BSD caused by the unknown device driver. Any ideas on how to solve this problem?

That s right, the same topic has already been discussed, so please check this page. :)

  • Satellite M30X-111 wake up from standby/hibernation mode

    People, like many of you, I had the questionable connection DC problem and I solved this at the time of re - solder the wandering joint on the connector for the motherboard.

    Everything was fine with the laptop until yesterday when I tried to get the machine to wake from standby / hibernation if it is when you close the screen) and now all that happens is that the blue light around the power button lights up, the CPU fan runs for about 5 seconds, the HARD drive light flashes once Maybe two times and the DVD briefly climb towers.

    Also nothing happens... the screen is blank and the laptop is actually not from the occasional maelstrom of the fan.

    Is it in any case to perform a reset of some sort to get it to snap it on hibernation? I have read up on this subject on various forums and have tried to start without memory, without the HARD drive and the DVD drive and still no life.

    Any input is appreciated that I need this laptop to spring into life again.

    Thanks in advance



    to wake up the machine, simply remove the battery and the AC and leave the machine for a few hours. After that, it should work again.
    By the way: sometimes it s a good idea to do a biosupdate, because maybe the problem comes from the bios.

    Please give some comments about your success... :)

  • Auto erasing in pro SSD comes from standby/hibernation mod.

    Hallo! Help me)

    I'm on macbook pro 13 "2011 i5. So I bought ssd to upgrade my mac. These are the 128 GB plextor m6pro. I cloned all the disk system ssd. Also I bought optibay, I broke my hard drive cable, so now the whole system works on optibay and ssd (without hard drive).

    I have a serious problem. When I close the macbook and then open after a few minutes my system begins to work is not properly so I click on system reboot and Flash then folder with the question. I like this for 4 times, other times just system opens when I opened my macbook. Then I go to the internet-> disk utility boot and see this ssd is completely erased, no partition! I don't really know what to do.

    It seems that he connects with optibay because it uses cd, mode standby/hibernation and sessions.

    Please help me! =)

    I forgot to add, all the time, I used trimforce enabled, unless it's necessary information. Hope someone could help me.

  • Running back from standby/hibernation program

    Hey there,
    I want to launch a program every time I come back/sign my computer after the standby/hibernation mode. I only found a possibility to play sounds of a logon each time that this happens, but I can't run programs like that. Is it possible to do it on Vista?

    PS: If it isn't, can you send this request apparently simple functionality to the Windows 7 development team?

    While the mark's instructions look as if they will work, there is a more elegant way to achieve, using Vista built in Task Scheduler.

    To create a task that runs whenever you unlock your profile:
    1 open the Task Scheduler [start > Panel > system and Maintenance > administrative tools > Task Scheduler (or just type "Task Scheduler" in the box start search)]. You will need an administrator account/password for access to this.
    2. Select "Create a task" to create a new task.
    3. a panel with several tabs will open.
    4. fill the 'Général' tab to meet your needs.
    5. go to the "Triggers" tab and choose "new". Another panel will open. At the top of this Panel, you will see a (see below). Open it and choose ' to unlock the workstation. Then choose if you want this task to run just for your profile or for everyone. Click on 'ok '. (You can find it useful to use the option "Delay task" to delay the task for 15-30 seconds to give your office a chance to load before the program runs.)
    6. go to the Actions tab, select 'New', choose 'Run program' and locate the program you want to run.
    7. Select the tabs 'Conditions' & 'Settings', respectively and change various settings according to your needs. (Make sure that the "Run on AC Only" option is disabled if you are using a laptop and want the task to run when it is unplugged).
    8. click OK to save your new task.
    Now, whenever you unlock your profile after the standby or Hibernate mode, your program runs.
    If you follow these instructions, but choose "connection to" rather than "To unlock the workstation", your task will run whenever you connect (unlock and logon are not the same thing as the computer is concerned, so keep that in mind).
    This may not work if your profile is not protected by a password, but all mine, so I couldn't test it in this situation.
    I hope this will satisfy your needs.

  • Portege M400 and 3.60 BIOS

    Ubuntu Linux running on the M400 and it seems that almost all BIOS version 3.60 prerequisite are broken because there are errors of the quirk on the CPU APIC. Perhaps Microsoft could circumvent the APIC tables broken for awhile but things with Linux is a bit bulky. Microsoft asked to Toshiba for a BIOS update to address these issues and it seems to be fixed from 3.50.

    See here

    Even under Linux not more APIC errors appear. :-) But after the update from 3.60 BIOS splash screen remains active and keeps me to select an option for a boot (grub) multi entry. If the OS is already from the start screen become white first, then gives finally control the operating system. Others see this as well?

    I am able to select something in my Start menu, but it is more guess the start screen is always at the top. Very annoying it :-(

    Another issue I have is that sometimes the system freezes for a few seconds and then continues, nothing to see in the logs when you use a Tablet Ubuntu or Windows XP Home edition. So might be a bug in the BIOS once more. Yet once you are looking for confirmation, other know about this as well.

    Reflash 3.60 a couple of times, but seeing this behavior over and over again.

    Although it seems to be some control fan in 3.60. He does not like a DC9 aircraft, but were still not silent like the 1.80W or the 2.10N of BIOS versions. Nice to see these fan noise changes incorporated in 3.60 and later

    Hi Robert

    I know you hate me, but the fact is that Portege M400 has sticker next to the keyboard and it says something like designed for Microsoft. With short words: Linux OS is not supported.

    If you need help with Linux on Toshiba laptops please check

    Question about freezing is very strange and if you want to check properly install recovery without additional software image. In this case you will have factory settings and clean the preinstalled operating system. If you notice some outstanding questions, you must contact authorized service partner and clarify this point.

    Good luck!

  • Portege 3410 - how to update BIOS and install XP?

    Hello, I have two questions on Portege 3410.

    First: I can't update the BIOS (current usage, 1.50 there, I want to update to 1.60). Instruction does not work: I connect Teac USB into USB port, turn on the USB - FDD emulation to activate, portable switch with pressed F12, the message «Ready to update BIOS...» "appears, I touch in a hurry, but nothing happened. What's wrong?

    The other: I can't install Windows XP on laptop (it does not start from USB disk or external USB DVD drive).
    How can I install Windows?

    Thank you.


    Just a question: why do you want to update the BIOS? Is this really necessary?
    I ask this question because this update is always somewhat risky and you might damage it ROM module
    In any case, have you tried to load the default settings in the BIOS before you start the update and install XP?

    You can install XP without CD. Therefore, you must copy the folder i386 on the HARD drive from another computer and the boot to the HARD drive files, I think you need a little search with Google to find a workaround for this. You should find enough! ;)

  • I had to reformat after an attack from windows xp repair. No sound after updates

    I think I'll try another sound card.  You pc is quite old and components go wrong.

  • White screen to update the Portege M400 firmware after waking from sleep state

    Why this topic has been closed?

    I just wanted to add that this update does NOT resolve the problem in vista and it is NOT a driver problem. The update will not install in vista and vista is already provided with videoprt.sys 5.1.2600.2911.

    When it occurs, the laptop again indeed. You can manipulate and even hear the sounds, but the backlight does not come on or there is no output from the video card. I'm fairly certain that it is a signal of hardware problem.

    No matter what laptop I, euro or us, could someone please tell me the file so that I can look at what changes actually code?


    > Why this thread has been closed?
    I think that the admin closed this thread because, as indicated by the user lumix2day the MS update has solved this problem.

    The M400 was delivered with Win XP it's why the update should work with Windows XP!

    Regarding your question.
    Looks like you are using your own copy of Vista on the M400.
    You should check if Vista is already up to date. Each week the new MS updates are published.

    Additinally, I recommend updating the BIOS and check for a driver update more recent display!

    Best regards

  • How to reduce noise from the FAN on Portege M400 with Vista?

    M400 (* _VISTA_ * with newer utilities for electric model) FAN blows very noisy constantly regardless of real need for cooling.

    Even with zero responsible jobs, less than 1% (flat curve) of the activity, the processor speed to 50% in the model of power and all power to the minimum settings, FAN does not reduce the speed. After a reboot, for a short time, the noise is bearable, we can conclude that the FAN seems to be capable of low speed.

    _Problem is the same, even if the M400 is outside 9 ° c! _

    On all the M400, we, the problem is the same.
    How to work with M400 in an environment quiet?

  • Mode from standby/hibernation missing on my laptop Satellite L750-16Z

    I have a laptop Toshiba Satellite L750-16Z. So I had a lot of material on an old hard drive, I had need so I put my old Hard drive in my new Toshiba & installed all the drivers I could find for the model L750 /.

    The only problem now is I n ' have no sleep / hibernate options. They are grayed out.

    Can anyone suggest how to get this working? Or maybe there's an ACPI option that must be changed in the BIOS? Would be appreciated if anyone has the suggestion

    To be honest I didn t understand what have you done with HARD drive but the fact is that you are missing some basic as display driver drivers.
    I'm afraid that you must clean OS install so I highly recommend you to install original recovery image (original version of OS) m that you got with your laptop.
    You have recovery media?

  • Satellite A100: Error power USB from standby after update BIOS 5.20


    I have problems of USB power since the upgrade my BIOS to 5.2 days on receipt of an email from Toshiba, advise the upgrade

    I got a 100 - 200 PSAA8E Windows XP Media Edition since the upgrade of the BIOS to 5.20 I get message error power but only when the computer comes out of standby

    The error message tells me that "a USB device has exceeded the limits of its hub port power.

    I have nothing connected to one of the USB ports

    I talked to guys tech at length to Toshiba, but they can't seem to explain or correct the problem - a same thought it could be a motherboard problem, but cut which like the timing is too coincidental to be something other than the upgrade of the BIOS.

    If anyone knows a fix, so I would be grateful - is - it possible to find a previous BIOS and roll back from 5.20

    I guess if it's the BIOS, then when they deliver another it will correct itself?

    Comments appreciated


    Hello Phil

    Maybe again the stupid question, but I also want to know why you made the decision to do the BIOS update? Is there a particular reason or you just want to have laptop with the latest version of the BIOS.

  • Satellite Pro U300 (PSU31E) standby & hibernation fails after updating BIOS


    I wonder if it is common that after the upgrade of the Satellite Pro U300 (PSU31E) of the BIOS 2.50 at BIOS 3, 70 - Win or 3, 90 - Win, do sleep modes and Hibernate the * completely locked laptop computer? *

    After the upgrade, when I try to enter sleep or hibernation, the laptop turns off the LCD and gets locked so it isn't help to press and hold the power button, open/close the cover, press Fn - F3 or F4 - Fn, the only way is to disconnect the power supply and wait until the battery runs down, or simply be very rough and * disconnect the battery *.

    While the Pro U300 is locked, I hear that HARD drive and fans are also swivel - as soon they were when entering standby or hibernation mode. Very ugly behavior - you can FRY your laptop with something like that. I thought that BIOS 3.70 was faulty but unfortunatelly version 3.90 also worthless.

    Furthermore, I can't yet understand why large (70% of the zip file) file of the package to upgrade the BIOS (3.70 and 3.90)... is the portable other flashers log file?

    Your ad, I understand that the screen does not wake up after its entry in the standby or hibernation mode.
    Am I wrong?

    I noticed that Toshiba has released a new version of the Intel graphics driver.
    At this time the update is 02/20/08 and the version is

    Maybe you should try to update the display driver too check to see if it would help to get rid of this annoying display problem

    I recommend to remove the old version of the graphics driver first, then install the new downloaded driver.

    Mate good luck

  • Portege M400: Could not update the BIOS after installing Vista


    I have improved my M400 for Vista.

    I am trying to install all drivers Vista of Tosh. According to the instructions, the first thing to do is to update the bios.

    So, I download the bios (v3.60) on the site and run the .exe, but he tells me that I need the common modules.

    The only common modules that I can find on the Tosh site are for XP.

    Can anyone help?

    Thank you


    You will probably need to update the BIOS before installing Vista on the laptop.
    Then, you could install Vista again.
