  • Satellite R630-130 Bios Update problem 1.90

    Hello.
    Find it me difficult to update the BIOS 1.90 because I got the message that I had permission to run the update. Of course, I executed the request made by the administrator and try several times to restart Windows (Home prem 64 - bit). The last time when I installed 1.80 BIOS update there was not this sentence. Attach the screen with the message from the application.
    Thank you very much.

    In my opinion, there is a problem with Win7 version you are using. Maybe it's not enough to run as administrator, but you must be logged in as an administrator.

    Please check it out.

    By the way: why do you need new version of BIOS? Is there a problem with your laptop?

  • Satellite C660-13R - BIOS update problem

    Hi all

    I was updating the BIOS on TOSHIBA SATELLITE C660-13R of 64-bit windows 7. Downloaded driver toshiba web. To halfway the portable installation hangs. I left it for 40 minutes to run, but he did not return to the normal state. As the motherboard fan began to move at high speed, I decided to take out the battery. Result when I power my laptop back I 1 beep from the motherboard and a black screen.

    Can someone help me please?

    Of course, the BIOS update procedure has not. Something was wrong during the update process and it seems that the EMRPOM module was not properly flashed.
    This is the reason why the laptop is no longer.

    Possible solution?
    Well, if EMPROM isn t damage, it should be possible to re-flashing the BIOS module once more, using special version of BIOS and crisis disk BIOS.
    Usually the authorized Toshiba maintainer in your country should be able to re-flash of the module using this disc of crisis.

    I also read in this forum that some people managed to re-flash EPROM module using some 3rd party crisis disk found somewhere in the internet but it still does not
    The ASP will therefore probably be your last resort

    However, to use the forums advanced search option to find related discussions on the crisis disk BIOS could be interesting for you

  • Satellite 1130-z24: upgrade hard drive question

    Hello

    I have a toshiba Satellite 1130 - z24, which requires a new hard drive, the old man is a MK2108GAP of 20 GB but I want to set up a larger capacity drive. What is the record of the maximum size that I can use without any problems of compatibility?

    One of the following players would work?

    MK6034GAX 60 GB
    MK8026GAX 80 GB
    100 GB MK1032GAX

    I searched on various forums and websites, but the only information I can find is that the BIOS will not support the discs above a certain size, but I don't know how it is.

    Any help much appreciated.

    Hello

    I think that good old classic supports IDE controller.

    The IDE controller manages max 128 GB HDD due to support of the 28-bit LBA.

    So in your case, I would recommend choosing a HARD disk that is not longer than 120GB
    so, theoretically the 100 GB MK1032GAX should be compatible

  • Hard drive for TOSHIBA SATELLITE 1130-z24

    I just bought a 2nd hand TOSHIBA SATELLITE 1130-z24 portable

    But he has only a 10 GB hard drive.

    The BIOS sees a 40 GB, 60 GB, 80 GB or 160 GB HDD?

    Is the IDE?

    Hello

    I doubt you could use bigger hard disks of 128 GB because of the 48-bit LBA.
    The laptop seems to bear an IDE controller but the 48-bit LBA is supported since 2001, defines the ATA-6 Ultra DMA/100 (also called Ultra DMA mode 5 or Ultra-ATA100)

    I think that your IDE controller support 28 bit and that is why you should choose less IDE 2.5 hard drives.

  • Disassemble a Satellite 1130-z24

    How do I disassemble the TOSHIBA SATELLITE 1130-z24?

    There a lot of dirt (Brown cotton wool as stuff) inside which vacuum cannot get rid of (as its off), but I want to disassemble clean the fluff, re - assemble and use the laptop.

    I took out all the screws (I could see) under the laptop it but still no joy, the case will come out.
    Charge down the user manual, but who does not tell you how to proceed.

    Is there a technitions manual I can down load so he can tell me how to take apart safely.

    Hello

    Disassembly manuals can be downloaded from the Toshiba page.
    I didn t think not and I guess this manual are created just for a Toshiba authorized service partners and are not released for public use.

    You may find some photo or details from the internet. Google is your friend always ;)

    But generally speaking, it s really complicated to disassemble the laptop and I would not recommend doing this if you n t know how proceed.

    Of my knowledge on most laptops the keyboard must be removed first because there could be a few screws that immobilize the other parties and covers.

    Sorry, but I cannot provide more details, because the Satellite 1130-z24 is unknown to me

    What wifi card can I use with it.

    Hello

    As far as I know the laptop supports a Wlan miniPCI slot.
    So in this case, you should be able to use miniPCI WLan card that supports the 802. 11b standard Wlan.

    For example Wireless LAN Mini PCI card (2, 4 GHz, 802 11 b) PA3212U-3MPC should be compatible!

    How can I flasch BIOS with other versions,
    His big problem to work

    Thank you and I hope you can help me...

    Hello

    The version of the BIOS should be mentioned in the BIOS settings.
    Turn on the device, press F2 and verify the version here.

    Also I recommend the settings of the BIOS back to default settings.
    In the BIOS settings, you will need to press F9 to get the default value. Then save the changes and exit the BIOS.
    Restart the machine and check how many processes are running in the context of the BONE.

    I recommend disabling of certain non-essential processes in msconfig.
    There, you can go to the Startup tab and could uncheck the unnecessary process.

  • Satellite C855 - 19 X - BIOS update problem

    Hi all

    I have a Satellite phone C855 - 19 X and the alert tempo TOSHIBA utility prompts me to update my BIOS. However when I am doing so I get the following message

    "Error".
    Flash process will end!
    Current platform have secure start capability, it must provide the location of storage NV by interface IHISI.
    Please contact BIOS OEM Engineer to add the feature.
    Without this IHISI interface, variables to authenticate will be modified or erased by flash process.
    If you understand the risk and want to keep flashing.
    You can add the following parameter in platform.ini to ignore the error.
    [EngineeringErrorDisable]
    SkipSecureBootProtectionCheck = 1"

    Does anyone have any experience with this kind of problem? Should I add this parameter, or is otherwise around it? Because the BIOS will be affected I hesitate to do so.

    Thank you in advance.

    Hello

    First of all, you should know that the update of the BIOS is a sensitive technique and using wrongly you can damage the motherboard. So be sure to always update the BIOS.

    Second, the update of the BIOS is not quite necessary in case your laptop runs correctly.
    You have problems using the laptop? Isn't it? Well, in this case I wouldn't touch the BIOS.

    However, the error message is telling as secure boot
    Secure boot is an available option in the BIOS settings. You should probably disable secure boot before running the BIOS update file.

    If you have downloaded the BIOS v1.90 so you need to unzip (uncompress) first of all, this package. Inside the packaging, you will find the BIOS190.exe
    You must run this exe file.

    You say that WinFlash.exe is running on the background. Well, try closing this process and start then start the update
    You can also reboot the device and might try to start the procedure once more
