Satellite A100-590 PSAA9E freezes on the Toshiba start screen after BIOS update
Yesterday, I made an update of the BIOS on my Satellite A100-590 PSAA9E 03Z00QGR with the appropriate flash:

BIOS - 20070709111839.zip
After flashing, the machine restarted automatically, but unfortunately it keeps now suspended from Thoshiba welcome screen. Also by pressing F2 or F12 will not change anything. It seems that the BIOS is damaged.
I saw that in the BIOS package are delivered the two files (s10gm590.rom and s10pm590.rom) flash. But just the execution of the BIOS590MP.exe SanAntonion10 a .vbs script starts decides which automatically selects and loads a flash file. Maybe she chose the wrong?
What should I do now? Is there a way to restore the BIOS, or do I have to send my laptop?
Thanks in advance
sounds are really serious. Unfortunately, I can just give you the only clue you will get with each user here in the forum:
Find the nearest authorized service partner (you can find one by using this link: http://22.214.171.124/support/Download/ln_byModel.asp)
and bring your machine. In addition, you must explain the guys what happened so they can do something for you.
Good luck buddy
I have the blue screen after BIOS update. Satellite L450D - 13 X worked ok before that ideas?
Is there contact information for Support TOSHIBA?
> Is there any TOSHIBA support contact information?
No, becaue, must contact an authorized service provider. Guys can help on any hardware and software problems and can also order spare parts from Toshiba.
Here is a list of aspic, where you can look closer:
Good luck! :)
After searching for hours on google and other places without finding any helpful response, I decided to ask here. I hope someone here can help me out.
I have a Toshiba Satellite A100-590, and I am trying to install Windows XP Pro SP2 MSDNAA from a cd. But whenever I try to boot from it, I get the following error message:
PXE - E61: Media test failure, check cable of
PXE - M0F: Exit Intel Boot Agent.
and it starts the already installed Windows XP Home Edition. On several boards of people say that this is caused by the boot loader tries to start from a network and not being able to find a server to boot from. I tried all the stuff like setting up LAN to the last item in the startup list, but nothing helps... any suggestions?
Thanks in advance.
The PXE error occurs if the device tries to start first on the LAN.
I put t know how you boot from the CD, but I recommend to change the boot order in the BIOS. LAN Boot option must be set at the end of the order and the CD at the beginning.
Check it out.
I have a NB200 - 11L which has been sitting with an annoying problem for a while now.
When I turn on the laptop it freezes at the "Toshiba - leading innovation" the BIOS boot screen and goes no further.
I get the same problem with or without food
I tried replacing the HARD drive but still no problem.
With no DISC in the system, it attempts to boot from the network & also allows me to access the BIOS (currently version 1.20)
Anyone else had problems like this & successful to solve?
Thanks in advance :)
A few days ago, I saw the same problem on my Satellite A205 (American model) friends. After removing the HARD drive, I was able to enter the BIOS settings.
I ve value BIOS settings by default, the HARD drive has been replaced by a new and now everything works perfectly.
HARD drive was defective, and obviously the identification by BIOS HARD drive blocked throughout the system.
I recommend you get the new HARD drive and do the same thing.
Can someone tell me how I can put in my book "A100-692 PSAA9E" memory?
On the Internet there are pages which provide that 4 GB is the maximum amount of memory, whereas the manual says that 2 GB is max amount (the manual seems to be made for a group of individual booklets and also indicates
my laptop should have a GForce but there a GFX ATI card).
If 4 GB is the maximum amount, can I go with the memory following constellation? :
2GB Stick Port 1
512 MB key Port 2
Also can I use Ram DDR2 - 667 Mhz instead of 533 Mhz Ram and or a mixture thereof?
This chipset is the Satellite A100-692 supports?
If it s a Mobile Intel 945 Express Chipset PM then it would support the 4 GB of RAM
Here the details on the Intel page;
[Intel 945 PM Chipset Express | http://www.intel.com/products/notebook/chipsets/945pm/945pm-overview.htm]
But the fact is that there are different laptop A100 with different hardware specifications and so there is different information about the possible RAM Upgrade.
However, I think that you will not be able to use the full 4 GB of RAM due to Win 32 bit limitations. The 32-bit OS can use max 3.2 GB
I just bought a Satellite A100 (psaa8)
I found that a document indicates that I can move on to Vista and a link but it does not work.
So can you please help me with this, I got bored of XP.
I read that some members ordered a free vista CD.
Can you tell me how to order and it is good or bad?
Remember that this offer is limited by the date! I think you're too late dude!
But why you're bored? The XP is the OS really friendly and fully compatible with all 3rd party devices!
Vista needs a lot more use as XP and runs slower than XP. If you want to play games on your laptop, I would recommend staying with XP! All games run faster under OS XP!
You know the Vista Customization Pack? This allows you to use XP but it looks like a Vista.
You know, the whole images, icons, etc. will transform the look of Vista.
It s nice and for people who wants to change the old XP style new style Vista ;)
Unless I opened fully open/almost completely the cover on my Toshiba Satellite A100-049 it will always freeze on screen Toshiba Logo black (first one you see). She has completed half of the blue progress bar that runs along the bottom of the screen. I need and then turn off the button and once again, it becomes work.
The laptop is only 2 weeks old nine. It's especially annoying since it prevents a scheduled backup to wake the portable computer from Hibernation. I have to leave it on or leave the lid open permanently.
It seems that the title has been changed from the one I posted, nothing wrong with that, but it is no longer accurate. It keeps loading the Windows loading screen, it freezes "before" that date. The Toshiba Logo POST screen, very first, you see when you turn on the laptop.
I have just download the update of "blt-mon-20071009150856" Bluetooth driver and install the driver "BtMon2Inst_v212" on my A100 - 192 (PSAA9E). After installing the driver 'Toshiba Bluetooth 4' BT works very well.
BUT I can't use wireless (FN + F8) key to switch between Bluetooth and the wireless device. I can disable/enable them from the control panel or the utility ConfigFree.
No idea how to bring back the FN key?
I assume the ordinary models don t work properly.
You must download this tool from Toshiba page and reinstall it on the XP operating system running.
Please report if the common modules tool has solved this problem!
Hi, my L750 was having this gel on the problem starting frequently in the past few days (almost 2 / 3 times), he just stopped just before the logo windows would load. at first he would continue to run after, I moved the mouse or press a key, but today would not work these tricks.
I have to press the power button to force the reboot and it show a window repair option, I've chosen, then the freeze after the disappearance of process bar (so don't empty screen and nothing, no disc hard processor or light), strength to restart again and it starts okay this time.
No idea what could be the problem here?
We don t know what you are doing with your laptop and what is the configuration of the OS, is not easy to say what can be the problem.
If this problem occurs only a few days, try to start the operating system in safe mode and roll back the BONES of a few days using System Restore tool.
Please test and post comments.

I am a beginner user,
I have Satellite C855
Yesterday, I downloaded a 'update BIOS"that was sent to my computer.
Since that my screen is blank, there is a hum in the background.
I have a recovery back up on my external hard drive, but of course, the screen is blank so I don't know how the product.
I think I must have downloaded a model or the update was not compatible.
White screen do you mean that nothing appears on the screen?
You see the start screen of Toshiba, or if you are able to access the BIOS?
Where this is not possible, try this:
Disconnect the power adapter, remove the battery.
Press and hold the power button for about 30 seconds.
Then connect the two parts (batteries and AC adapter) for the laptop and try to turn on the unit.
In case this would not solve the problem of the laptop, I'm scared of m the BIOS update was not completed successfully and I think that only authorized Toshiba service provider would be able to help you.
My Satellite C650 Windows 7 - won't start afte BIOS update / switch.
Everything worked very well until the automatic update of Toshiba asked me to download and install the new BIOS update, I did. At the same session Windows and McAfee asked updated. I agreed to all. After all updates have been installed, turns off. The next day when I walk, I see only black screen. I also tried F2, F12 and drive recovery. Nothing happens!
It seems that something was wrong during the update of the BIOS and so that you can t the computer unbootable. But I put t understand why you did the BIOS update. If everything works correctly, you can forget about this update. More if you do a BIOS update you shouldn't t run any other updates or programs that might affect the update of the BIOS.
Anyway, in this case you can do nothing and you need professional help. Please contact an authorized service provider and guys can help you update the ROM module On the Web from Toshiba site, you can find a list of all the FSA:

Good luck! :)
I ran the update of the BIOS on laptop Satellite C660D PSC1YE recommended and he appeared to succeed, but when it restarts the screen won't turn on. I tried a few things to fix, but nothing worked.
- connect an external monitor via VGA - white too
- remove the battery of the CMOS button
- removing a hard drive startup, to replace again
- a short-circuit the J1 jumper under RAM slots
What else can I try?
Here is the windows bios update program:
Try to start with the battery.
Good day, everyone!
It is not a problem, but I would like to know how it could happen so I a "Dynabook G9" laptop that was purchased from the Japan. It's like satellite 5200 series... When I turned it on, the logo "DYNABOOK" displayed and computer kept loading... a few days ago, I have tried to update the BIOS but downloaded the Russian from Toshiba Web site for 5200 series update... cause there is no BIOS update on the Japanese site...
When I run the downloaded file, it says I have BIOS v 1.40 and it can not be updated v 1.50 because it isn't for my laptop... so my idea to use the update for European laptops did not work... but the question is that now I have "in touch with tomorrow Toshiba" logo instead of "DYNABOOK" and how it could happen? And how can I get it back?
Computer still works fine... but... I do not know... I like just the "DYNABOOK" logo more :-)
P.S. maybe it changed not after trying to update the BIOS (I'm not really sure) but it has certainly changed.
I already wrote something in the other topic and because of that I just want to say hi again ;)
Dear Andrey problem is that Toshiba does not portable as produced big world and there are several global areas: U.S. market area EMEA (Europe-Middle East-Africa) and also in Asia. I am not sure if the Japan is separately but I think it is.
Also books produced in all areas are suitable for each other. Because of this, you cannot mix BIOS and Toshiba has designed tools and utilities. I think that in most cases, it can work, but it is not for sure. Support page for notebook EMEA, it is recommended to use the BIOS and other stuff explicitly of Toshiba Europe. For US books there are all the drivers, tools and utilities on the Toshiba U.S. support page.
Now, you have Japanese laptop and use non - Japanese BIOS or software. For me, it makes sense that some changes will happen. I don't think anyone has good experiences with it, but you should be happy that your laptop works well.
All that s what I can say about it.
In any case, good luck and have fun with your toys!
I tried to update my Bios on my Satellite C660D portable (psc1YE) last week (big mistake).
Something went wrong during the update and now when I power on I just get a black screen (LEDS and fan).
After reviewing, the conclusion is that I damaged the BIOS that must now be blind flashed.
So I got the hand on a 512MB memory stick, formatted using FAT through windows XP and used Wincris to create a startup disk after you have added the file bios.rom (renamed Bios.wph) which I extracted the last update of the BIOS on the Toshiba site.
My memory stick has three visible files on it, Phlash16.exe, bios.wph and minidos.
I plug laptop with battery, DVD player and power disconnected to stick, and hold Fn + B re-connection cable cable, turn it on.
The fan whirs at full speed, and the USB lights up and flashes then for a minute, as if being read. No matter how long I let on, the fan will continue whirring and the USB is on and when I unplug and put in still works a black screen.
I tried different sticks, (up to 4 GB with FAT32 format), programs of different startup (for example, the HP utility) drive but still no luck.
Can someone tell me what I do wrong? I tried to look for a newer version of Phlash16 just in case that was the problem, but can not find one any where (mine is version 2008)
All advice would be greatly appreciated even if it's just to tell me that I'm wasting my time because the pc is not repairable.
I can't tell you if you waste your time or not because I n know if the motherboard ROM module is OK or not
In most cases, it should be possible to reflash the ROM module using the BIOS crisis disk but this disc is available to authorized Toshiba service technicians and as much as I know reflash this methods is not always the same
However, in some cases it might be possible that the mobo could not be fixed by disk crisis, it would be the worst case
I recommend you to contact a certified maintainer Toshiba to check guys would be able to use the crisis disk and could test whether its possible to reflash the module ROM
Is it not would be not possible well in this case you would need new motherboard :(
But lets hope do ' t you need...
