Re: Satellite Pro L300 - update after the BIOS, Windows will not start


I updated the BIOS on my laptop to the latest version and now it does not start in Windows. I can get to the BIOS menu. I tried to restore the default values and saved the day, but he's just a blue screen with writing on whichIi do not have the time to read it before it tries to restart and continues to do the same.

Any ideas anyone?

see you soon

Hi chaospunx,

Which HDD mode did you use before the BIOS update? Perhaps this option, you need to change, then Windows will start up again.

You can choose between the mode of access AHCI and Compatible HARD disk.

  • Re: Satellite A300-243 - updated after the BIOS, it did not work

    Dear members...

    Good day...

    I have a problem with Toshiba Satellite A300-243, I installed the Bios after you download from Toshiba Web site, and when it's over, he restarted the machine and did not work, just turned on.

    So if any body can help me to solve this problem, I'm happy.

    Thank you...


    It looks like that the BIOS update has no...

    What can you do now?
    Yourself you can do nothing. The only change is the authorized service provider. Technicians can try to reflash the ROM module

    Sorry mate, but in this case you need professional help.

  • Satellite A300 (PSAJ0E) - update after the BIOS, I can't start


    I have an A30, and I tried a bios update to 4.2 which is the latest version for my model. BIOS update went well spent, that it prompted me to restart the laptop once the process is complete, but after this, I was not able to start. I made the screen where I can enter the BIOS Setup (that I can actually do and I am able to change the settings and save them) but after that the screen goes black and it crashes.

    At first, I thought I did something wrong and upgrade does not work well, then I started looking for the bios crisis recovery methods, I found this article:
    After the steps, I managed to get my USB floppy drive works and, hopefully, flashing the BIOS, but it didn't help it would always hang at the same stage.

    My laptop has a warranty expired, so I can't fix it for free, and the service will probably cost me half of its price. Is there anything else I can do to get it fixed?

    I thought to Flash an older version of bios - perhaps the last 4.2 is not really compatible with my model, but I couldn't find everything... is it possible to get an older version of bios and give it a try with a floppy drive?

    Thank you

    You have a laptop A300D. It s a series different and, therefore, you couldn't t use the BIOS files designed for A300 series!
    This may damage the module ROM and mobo!
    You can find the latest version of the BIOS on the Toshiba European page of the driver... otherwise, you will need to contact the ASP in your country for assistance, or an older version of BIOS.

  • Satellite Pro A300 (PSAG9E) - after updating BIOS Windows will not start

    Restart went well after update BIOS and Windows XP logo appears loads for a few seconds then a beep and restart - last good known or start Windows normally same effect.
    Reboot back to start - this is a new laptop - using the BIOS of Toshiba s official download site.

    Quite annoyed to try to find a way to upgrade or downgrade the BIOS.
    Took battery and RAM to see if I can delete it?

    Any ideas anyone?

    I think you mean BIOS * update * and do not upgrade ;)
    An upgrade is not possible

    However, you can try to remove the battery and the AC adapter and wait an hour. After that, reconnect the battery and the AC adapter and try to start Windows.
    Moreover I would load the default settings in the BIOS before starting Windows.

    If it doesn't work, it seems that your ROM module needs to be reflashed. In this case an ASP can help you.

  • Satellite Pro L300: BSOD after updating BIOS


    After updating the Bios of the Satellite Pro L300, windows will not start!
    His show the blue screen of death!

    What can I do?


    You are able to access the BIOS settings?
    I m not very well why this BSOD appears, but eventually the SATA mode settings have been changed after the BIOS update

    Usually the SATA mode must be on AHCI if the SATA drivers are installed.
    But if the SATA drivers are not included the SATA mode must be set to compatible.

    Please check this!

    In addition, you could set the BIOS default settings and may try to start the computer again.

  • Satellite Pro L300 restarts once the update the BIOS of the TOSHIBA Site

    After an update of the BIOS under windows, my system restarts more. F2, F8 keys are ineffective to turn on time. The screen stays black and there is only some permanent access to the CD/DVD drive.

  • Satellite A200 (PSAE0C-AH308C) - after the BIOS black screen update


    I have a Toshiba Satellite (model No. A200; Part No. PSAE0C - AH308C) and to install Windows XP on a version already corrupted Vista (which had 4 partitions, that have been corrected, erased, then reformatted in a solid block). Now, I have installed all the appropriate drivers off Toshiba Canada support site...

    Everything worked, but I wanted to see in Windows (since I just got this computer) if everything was in place and working normally until I installed Ubuntu... Then I did the update to the BIOS flash. The program is supported in two formats, one for Vista and one for XP... for XP has a more high at 5.20 and Vista BIOS version the 1.80 revision of BIOS... that are marked as being updated by the Toshiba site. I opted to download the latest version of the BIOS.

    Things got ugly as soon as I unzipped the self-extracting program. First of all he said he could not find a .dll file (even if it is clear from there), so that seemed as if it started to Flash the BIOS but has not finished (it was just what happened when I opened the program)... I think he got to the ROM of compensation but did not have any code in there... Windows attempted to close the program because he did not respond, and I tried to take the program... had the same .dll error, but this time, the screen of the program was just gray...

    Given that this program is not Flash the BIOS unless the user selects the button "Flash BIOS", I have reason to believe that it was a bug in the program, or a combination of it and Windows comes to interfere (no program were running at the time, while he was supposed to be a dedicated flash). I can only flash in the Win.

    Now, I rebooted the computer, twice... the screen turns black, the HARD disc spins, the DVD drive has done his usual clicking sound when the computer starts, but it seems to stop as there is no BIOS entact.

    Can I replace the BIOS chip? There is no way for me to access the BIOS at all.

    Thanks for any help on this

    Thank you & best regards

    Unfortunately, the BIOS update has failed and now BIOS is damaged. For this reason, you cannot start and use your laptop. I agree with Luke. Please contact nearest Toshiba authorized maintainer and ask for help. Talk with them and I am sure that you will find the best solution to this problem.

    Satellite A200 is quite long on the market and it is hard to believe that updating the BIOS on the Canadian page may have a bug. All updates are tested and used by millions of users and service providers. If there is something wrong, I do not believe that this update will be available on the page of public support.

    In any case, contact the nearest service provider and explain the situation. Believe me this is the best thing you can do now.

    Good luck!
