Re: Satellite P100-106 - how to pass the BIOS?
I'm trying to downgrade the BIOS on my P100-106 of 4.80 to the 3.30 original but I don't have a copy of it. No matter who or where it is available?
(Please note I looked already http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/outFrm.jsp?ofId=AskIris&searchString=P100&x=0&y=0 and these BIOS are NOT for the P100-106)
It seems that you have a European model for laptop and so you need to download all the drivers and tools of Toshiba's official website:
But it seems that he not there no old version available for your laptop BIOS because you can download the newest one.
You must contact an authorized service provider and ask the guy if you have an older version of BIOS.
But why you want to downgrade it?
How do install the BIOS after download as I canoe find the beginning of the installation in the downloaded files?
Any help is appreciated as I am new on this.
I have a Satellite P100-429 PSPA3E
You must start the WinPhlash.exe file to start the update of the BIOS.
In addition, here are some practical info on the update to the BIOS:
I have just updated the bios to 4.20, after reboot, I went to the bios settings and saw that the multiprocessor (the option for the use of 2 CPUs) is disabled.
After I enabled it, the computer is very slow, and I had problems with starting the computer.
When the multiprocessor option is disabled, the computer works ok, but the Task Manager indicates that a single processor.
I had to go down to the bios to version 4.00.
I would like to know if there is another solution for this.
In front of me, I have Satellite P100-191. I did the BIOS update to version 4.20, and in my case, Multiprosessor is undoubtedly permissible. In this case, the entry in the Device Manager shows 2 processors.
I disabled this option and the laptop runs slowly than before and in the device manager what a processor is listed.
I don't really know what is wrong in your case, but I can confirm that the Satellite P100-191 friends, everything works well.
Fact the BIOS Flash update the BIOS or that requires a different file. I've updated a Satellite A60 BIOS to 1.9 but am not sure if cela flashed the BIOS as well.
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.
The update of the BIOS flashing the ROM module I put t know which version is installed before upgrading the BIOS, but if after the upgrade, a new version of the BIOS appears then the procedure was a success.
The good BIOS and how to upgrade the BIOS information you will find on the page of Toshiba.
I just bought a new laptop Toshiba Satellite L50T-A196 and it worked very well and the great until recently.
I tried to reformat my computer because it got crashed.
I was able to reformat my computer very well in previous years.
So far, I've reformatted my laptop more than 5 times, but that it was like 1 year ago and now I really don't know how I got into the BIOS menu.
I tried pressing F1 to F12, holding them and also repeatedly pressing it.
Also tried pressing F2 and F12 or ESC + F12 F2 before even looking at computer and then turn it also I tried pressing 0 too and also ESC and the ~ button.
Nothing seems to work.
So my question is how to enter the bios?
I used to be able to get, but now I don't know what happened
You need to perform a full stop down.
Here's a HowTo:
[Perform a complete shutdown in Windows 8 | http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/kb0/TSB2B03EY0002R01.htm]
The fact is that Win 8 keeps the laptop but the unit carries out hybrid stop start up more quickly. Unit should be stopped in order to access the BIOS.
After the unit is OFF, turn on again and press F2.
Now you should be able to access the BIOS
How to enter the BIOS on this machine?
It has a password, and I have the password.
I looked in the user manual and BIOS is not mentioned.
A friend of mine has a Satellite A55 and AFAIK you must press ESC to enter the BIOS.
So please try it and post your result! :)
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?
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.

I have a password for the Toshiba Satellite A110-260, but I can't reset the password of the battery
Please help me!
How to reset the bios password
You cannot remove the BIOS password. Something like that is not possible on Toshiba laptops.
A special procedure is required and this can be done ONLY by a (certified partner) ASP.
So my advice is to contact the ASP in your country and ask for help!

How do you get the BIOS to recognize external floppy port?
Are you sure you know how to update the BIOS?
Come on cheshire! The update of the BIOS is risky If you n t know how to do!
Usually, you don't need additional software to recognize the USB FDD drive or driver!
I hope you have downloaded the good BIOS and use the correct procedure to update BOS, because if you do this in the wrong way to damage the motherboard!
It is important to first read the BIOS update guide lines! You can find it on the download page of the BIOS under more information
Can anyone can advise, try to connect the Sony camcorder with 4 pin i.link, but can't seem to connect the two devices.
I have AC power on the camera, tried to use the other movie maker, adobe, etc. no joy.
is thinking why is this?
As Garrett Satellite P100 supports the firewire port.
Normally, the port is always on and you need an application that does not recognize your camcorder correctly. You can then copy the videos on your laptop.
I just had a bit of trouble to install a piece of software that, in the end I could settle with a system restore. This process was worried at the time that I could not get the software uninstalled properly (I had to download a program from the machine to uninstall!)
At one point, I considered the restoration of my laptop Satellite P100-188 with the product recovery disc, the thing is I never did this before and I was wondering if someone could tell me the best sequence for later use.
I have a standard Windows Media Center Edition OS, a recovery disk of the product, a disk Express Media Player and a CD of Drivers and tools that I created when I got the laptop.
I have a feeling telling to restore Express Media Player before Windows, is does that mean that I have to insert this disc, install Express Media Player, then insert recovery disk product to install Windows?
The Express Media Player disc formats the drive? It's not clear to me and I don't want to run into problems when I finally don't have to reinstall my operating system.
I searched this forum to see if this information was already posted and could not find all the relevant information, all I can find are problems with the help of recovery and lack of discs discs.
If it has been posted before could you provide me a link and I'm sorry again calls for data.
If you want to have own OS preinstalled, the best solution is to use supplied recovery media. If the Express media player works well the leave it as it is and use the recovery DVDs only for clean operating system installation. All that s!
Tools and Utilities CD can be used if you need to reinstall Toshiba designed tools or if you want to install your own operating system by using the facilities of Microsoft CD. If you have any other questions please post again.
I have the same problem. Latest version of BIOS for my laptop is 1.3, but on my 1.4 is installed? Laptop is 10 days and I can't work with it.
We have a few C660 (PSC0LE), we bought tham the same day and they all have 1.3 and perfect work. Only my are BIOS 1.4 version and it of not good at all.
Please, I beg you, my question is how do I Flash BIOS with 1.3?
Why did you create an additional thread on BIOS? I want to say that this can be discussed in your other thread too.
Anyway: the BIOS Downgrade is not possible and can be done a service allowed in your country. Latest Toshiba site only version is available, so a downgrade is not possible.
How can I locate, reset or remove the bios password of Toshiba Satellite C850-B79?
Unfortunately, the unknown BIOS password cannot be removed or deleted without additional assistance from authorized maker Toshiba.
The BIOS password is somehow the level of security that must be passed by an authorized person.
If you n t know this password, you will need to contact the service guy in your country to get removed.
Would you help me how to remove the password of the BIOS for the Satellite A200-130 PSAE0E-00Y00YAR model?
My laptop was asked to enter the password when I put under tension.
Just check this article:
[How do I remove a BIOS password if I forgot it? | http://forums.computers.toshiba-europe.com/forums/ann.jspa?annID=11]
As you can see it s not possible to remove the BIOS password. It can only be done from an authorized service provider.
So, you should contact the guy and ask for help. They are able to remove a password from BIOS :)
