Satellite A10 BIOS update needed!
Hey guys, my Satellite A10 guard restart whenever I stopped him. I talked to my friend and he said there's a BIOS problem, and I should be updated. So I downloaded the latest version of Toshiba and run it. It told me to insert a disk. This wouldn't be a problem but my A10 is not a floppy drive then how am I ment to upgrade the BIOS of my computer without a floppy drive?
For your model of laptop ago just traditional BIOS update and you need a USB FDD for it. In my opinion, you can check on ebay or somewhere there FDD cheaply or you can contact the Service partner.
It takes about 10 minutes for the BIOS update, and you can do it alone. It is very easy. As I said, check if you can find a used floppy drive. It cannot be expensive.
Also, you can borrow one from your dealer or your business!
After a recent blue screen, I got a message saying that I should update my BIOS. It is, whenever I tried it got in the middle of the door 6 then completely turned off.
I'm running my laptop to the network, took each pci card and peripheral and still no joy. However, my laptop works very well even after the update apparently abandoned.
Could someone either confirm that this is how the traditional update is intended to work, or give me suggestions on how to fix things? I think that it is version 1.4.
Please don t WHAT BIOS abort update not more because you may damage the motherboard of your Satellite. Can you please send identification number of all laptop (1900-xxx)?
If you download the update of the BIOS there are also update BIOS Toshiba Description. Have you read it before treatment of BIOS update?
I've just updated my BIOS to version 6.0 that TOSHIBA said > 26/11/07 "this Bios update adds functionality to your system: Satellite A100 Toshiba 6, 00 - WIN (PSAAN).»
My original BIOS was 5.9
My computer works fine A100-33 but when my computer restarts, showed it to the BLACK screen.
I noticed that it displays BAD CHECKSUM and suugested I select default BIOS but I * ignored this advice * that wanted this new Version of the BIOS.
What means BAD CHECKSUM and what effects will have on my computer peformance please if any?
Under the system information that is displayed for my BIOS Version/Date Phoenix Technologies LTD 6.00, 07/12/2007
Name of the Microsoft OS? Â® Windows Vista Home Basic
Don t worry if the message "bad checksum" will appear only once.
'Bad checksum' means that the BIOS has been changed, rewritten or settings have been restored by default. Thus, whenever you save your bios settings, bios made a "checksum" to check the next time you start the settings were stored and all goes well. If something is wrong or has been changed, then the checksum stored since the last save a Don t match real new generated checksum.
So if you make an update of the bios, all your settings will be modified logic - you get an error "Bad Checksum".
Another reason for such "Bad Checksum" is an empty BIOS stack or a malfunction, so BIOS cannot keep it s settings and you will get every time you start the computer a message "Bad Checksum".
I obtained through Satellite L300 laptop and I want to update its BIOS (current v1.50), so I downloaded the bios update v1.60 - WIN and when I run the extracted PS10160M.exe file - I get a message that "this BIOS is not for your laptop.
What I am, I am doing wrong?
PS: that updating the BIOS was suggested automatically after registration on the Web from Toshiba site via the serial number.
UPD: it looks like autosuggestion fail: manual search shows that bios update 1, 60-win is not suitable for the model Satellite L300 PSLBCE. :-(
You used the wrong BIOS!
The European driver Toshiba page provides a BIOS for this Satellite L300 PSLBCE series and the latest BIOS right now is 1.50!
Currently, your laptop uses the latest version of the BIOS.
Hi, I have an old Toshiba Satellite 110CS and when I have it lit three days ago, I get a blank screen with a prompt to insert a disk in the BIOS update.
I do not know what file to download on your site for the 110CS
-is "s1110 - 150trad.zip" for s1110 - 150.exe?
I don't think it's the update of the correct BIOS for your laptop. It is very important that search you updates the BIOS under the "archived" category where you will find a specific update for Satellite 110CS for BIOS version 5.20.
For access to this simply click on Support and downloads-> update your BIOS
then in her-> product Type, select the appropriate boxes of files, family-> series of Satellite products - Archive-> Satellite 1XX, model-> Satellite 110
This produces the download BIOS version 5.20
I have the Satellite A200-1AH (PSAE6E). I have installed the version of the BIOS 2.10 update and electric fans started working out loud. I want to install v1.30 BIOS (the best for me) but I can't find it anywhere. Can you help me please?
I noticed that Toshiba has updated versions of BIOS 4 times in 4 months. So does that mean? I want to have the mobile rear silencer
I guess the Toshiba engineers have changed some values in the new BIOS update and thereby you have noticed this problem of fan. I think they have a few reasons for this.
If you want to have the old version of the BIOS, you should try to contact authorized service provider in your country. They should have.
I'm trying to update the BIOS on my Inspiron One 2320 after replacing the hard drive. It worked fine except the fan was running full speed constantly, even after a boot after being closed overnight - so no question of real heat. Advance Google search for BIOS update being a solution to the problem of fan went wild.
I put the file A10.exe on a bootable USB key, rebooted and ran the file. Everything was going well until I came to this screen:
ITE Flash Utility Version: 1.0
Device ID; 7f9d20ff
Seller of SPI; Chingis
Block number: 0
Erase check--check OK
And it's been sitting here just like that for a few hours now. I'm afraid to do something or to restart. I am wayyyy out of warranty, so I'm on my own.
You could try erasing BIOS by removing the battery motherboard button and press / hold the power button for about 30 seconds before reinstalling the battery. Check the Manual and follow the instructions carefully to remove/install the battery.
If the battery is more of ~ 2-3 years old, this could be a good idea to install a new, so you don't have to replace it again, at least not for a long time (er).
Are how far out of warranty you? If I remember correctly, Dell had a policy to replace a motherboard - once and only once - if it doesn't have a BIOS update within six months of the end of the warranty. Do not know if that still stands...
So if does not help clear BIOS by pulling on the battery, you can contact Support to see if this policy is always available.
Just tried to update BIOS and get the following error message:
Installation of UEFI winflash 0.02
The program will be closed
There is an error occurred, please check the items below
BIOS version more than 200
Battery capacity over 20%
AC is attached
Anyone have any ideas?
Can you post more information about this behavior? What version of BIOS you are using at the moment and what BIOS update you try exactly?
BIOS update requires administrator privileges, so you must run the update as an administrator. Also unzip all the files to zip archive before you start the update.
May I ask * why * you want to update the BIOS?
Hey, I got a message today (on Toshiba tempro) that the BIOS update is available.
Unfortunately, the link does not work.
I hope someone reads this part of the administration of technical assistance.
Run as admin.
Update the BIOS to the L750 failled with an ERROR "CHECK". I downloaded the update to the BIOS again and got the same error.
I wanted to submit a support ticket to do support technical namely that the BIOS update does not work, but low and behold, the creator of support ticket does not accept my model number/number combination.
Thus, apart from picking up the phone, how can I get a message to Toshiba?
See you soon
May I ask why you are trying to update the BIOS? Do you have questions?
As you probably know updated BIOS is always somewhat risky because it rewrites the ROM module and if anything goes not the ROM module can be destroyed and you are not able to start the computer. So this update should be made only if you have problems with the computer, otherwise forget it please.
Remember: never touch a running system! ;)
Everything by updating the system BIOS froze in step 7 to replace the code of the BIOS, needless to say that the laptop does not start because the BIOS is now corrupted.
I have the BIOS. BAK but need advice on how to restore the BIOS. I copied the BIOS. BAK on a key usb and it connected to the laptop computer and then powered on the system (now I tried the F, F2 key together). I can see the usb key will Flash initially but is not, clearly, progressing with the restoration.
I hope someone might be able to advise the use of the BIOS. BAK file to restore the BIOS.
Unfortunately I cannot help you with this but check it please this interesting thread - http://forums.computers.toshiba-europe.com/forums/thread.jspa?threadID=54395
Where can I find the update of the BIOS for this laptop for Windows XP?
Seems that European Toshiba driver page provides a BIOS for the Vista operating system and the BISO for XP is not available or do not exist.
Have you tried to install XP without updating the BIOS?
I think this should be possible and the update of the BIOS would not be necessary at this time.
I own a satellite M40. I had some problem with it, and tried to update the bios to see if he could he solved.
I flashed the bios with the windows-based utility, but the shutted of the computer down without any warning.
Now the laptop comes on only 1 or 2 and then put off the coast.
I bought this Toshiba, 10 months ago. So, is an update of the bios failed outside the warranty?
We can discuss your problem here, but nobody can help you. You must contact the Service partner and clarify this point. Sorry but there is nothing that you can do it alone.
Contact them, explain the situation and see how they will take care of this case.

I have a Toshiba Satellite P30 with Windows XP service pack 2 and the Bios v.1.20.
I downloaded the BIOS to version 1.40 from your site for my laptop (zip file of the bios-sp30-140win).
But during the installation, I am asked to insert a floppy disk, but I don't have a floppy drive, I only got a dvd player.
What can I do?
You need a compatible external USB floppy drive to update the BIOS.

I do not managed any password before.

No you can not lose any information, but in your case I would check for a more RECENT for your system BIOS version because there are some discussions were that other users had the same problem.
A user reported that a NEWER version has been released and the problem has been resolved, but you should check for it here:
Otherwise, it would be necessary to set the machine to an authorized service partner. If you need a link to find the one closest to your country:
