Satellite A350 - 22Q - BIOS update crashed

I have a big problem because of Toshiba update official Bios for the A350 models.

After downloading & unpacking of the Bios Update WinPhlash just started upgrading the Bios without PROMPTING. This is NOT acceptable! After 10 seconds or if the laptop froze just straight up. Stayed that way for 3 minutes or more. The only way to turn it off was by removing the power cord & battery. Cranking up again gave me nothing but black screen.

I tried various recovery options, for the most part Phoenix crisis disk Build. But unfortunately no luck.

Calling customer service of Toshiba (Netherlands) is not really useful at all. Tell me a bios update is not a smart thing to do. My answer-> then why you put it on your website and an update of the BIOS is sometimes necessary for the upgrade of the machine. After that the guys asked me to send the laptop to a notoriously bad service center (for laptops) DYNAFIX. Of course I wouldn't do this if I don't want my laptop is still more damaged.

Now I probably have to replace the BIOS chip. It will cost me my own tithe that my laptop is no longer guaranteed.

I'm very angry at Toshiba to put such a method of updating the dangerous bios on their website. I am an advanced user and rarely have questions, that I can't fix on my own. BIOS updates must be made in the DOS environment, not with WinPhlash Windows.

If Toshiba or anyone who believes that it was my mistake, by all means try it yourself. Also google the problem, you will see tons of users of Toshiba laptops posted on the forums with this problem of WinPhlash.

Please Toshiba, remove or change the bios update and find a solution for the customer to chip away at. I'll be happy to hear from you with a solution.

Hey Buddy,

I'm sorry to hear that, but I must say this can happen from time to time. Nobody is perfect, also no perfect software. But may I ask why you updated the BIOS?

Of course, in some cases, it might be necessary, but to be honest, if everything worked correctly in the past and you didn t have any problem I n t see a reason to make such update. Your laptop will not work faster with the new version of the BIOS, it s a little bug fixing but that doesn t mean that each update of the BIOS needs to be done because nobody uses really all the functions of the laptop.
As is the saying: never touch a running system! ;)

If you make an update of the BIOS, check the following things before:
-Disable the antivirus and firewall
-Close all running programs
-Make sure that you are logged on as an administrator
-Unzip all files from zip archive

I made such a function BIOS update Windows 5 times now and everything worked and no problems at all. Update was made in a few minutes and laptop restarted correctly. After updating the BIOS that I loaded the default settings to ensure that the new BIOS settings are correct.

In any case, now it s too late and your only option is to reflash the ROM module as MannerhagenVPO has already written. This can be done a service allowed because they have special tools for this case and specially designed for this model of laptop. With these tools, they can recover the BIOS and bring your laptop to life.

Then get in touch with the guy and ask for help. They can help you get rid of this problem.
Moreover, I don't see a reason why Toshiba should remove this BIOS update. All updates will be pre-tested if they work or not. Also from my own experience, I can say that the updates are always ok and don t causing problems.

I think that you you will find similar discussions on failure update BIOS when using Google, but who cares? Can you tell us that these users quite correct (closed antivirus, firewall, etc.). I doubt that
The next point is that you will also find these Google results if you search for other models from other manufacturers of portable computers. This isn't a matter of Toshiba, it s in general risk of update of the BIOS and no one can give you a guarantee that this update will be correctly. :)

Good day!

  • Satellite L40 - 12K - BIOS update failure

    Hi people,

    It is the second Toshiba laptop, I've managed to screw up. I don't know why, but it seems that Toshiba is especially prone to spectacular failure of BIOS.

    This laptop (Satellite L40 - 12K, short model PSL40E) has a bios made by FRIEND and Toshiba has an update on its Web site for windows that uses the tool of WinFlash.exe made by ASUS.

    The tool only works for 32-bit operating systems, and I had installed a 64-bit version of Windows, I could not pass the laptop.

    Then I thought: we will try to update the bios from MS-DOS, using a bootable flash drive!

    I went to the ASUS ftp site and downloaded the latest AFUDOS (2.41). This is a special version of the afudos FRIEND tool, specially designed for ASUS.

    I ran the tool under MS-DOS, and it will make sure the BIOS automatically confirmed that the binary file was compatible with the laptop model and automatically starts the process of flashing.

    But it crash in the phase of "flash erase". He was stuck there for HOURS, so I turned off the computer and tried to turn it back on.

    Not at all, the laptop won't turn. It does not even ANY SOUND. NO LIGHTS, NO NOISE, NO FAN, NOTHING.


    So, there you have it. I have flashed dozens of computers (servers, laptops, workstations, etc.) in my life, and I've only had TWO failures.

    TWO of them were with Toshiba laptops. Geez, Toshiba is really the King of the failures of BIOS flashing!


    I would never try update the Toshiba BIOS with a BIOS from other support pages for computer laptop manufacturer
    What to say; I found one from Toshiba victory of the BIOS and traditional BIOS Toshiba U.S. driver page:

    Maybe you could try to Flash the BIOS using this version of BIOS
    If this is not possible, then only a service provider authorized Toshiba would be able to help you.

    By the way: I've had three different Toshiba notebooks: A210, U400, and now Tecra A11.
    The BIOS update has worked perfect for all series...

  • Satellite Pro M30 Bios Update


    I have a satellite pro m30 and I would like to make a bios update. Utility hardware Toshiba says that my bios version is 1.4. The existing updates see 1.2, 1.6, but it says nothing about 1.4.

    Should I take 1.6?

    Any help?

    Thank you


    It might be possible that the BIOS version 1.4 is the version of BIOS default manufacturer for this model.

    In my opinion you should take the 1.6 version because it is the most recent and it may be necessary!

  • TR/agent.1220467 detected as I ran that Satellite A100 PSAA2E BIOS update file

    I was about to update my BIOS Toshiba laptop Satellite A100 PSAA2E on-site official (I downloaded the update file and unpacked to run it): * ios.jsp? service = EU
    When my antivirus (Avira Antivir Personal) has detected a TR/agent.1220467

    Of course, I stopped everything, asked to remove, Avira have another full scan, it was deleted again and restarted my PC.

    I am always very careful with what I download, but as I trusted blindly the official site of Toshiba as being safe, I don't run a virus scan on the file update and stupidly flat it once it has been downloaded.

    And now how I will:
    1. ensure that this virus is gone for good?
    2. switch to update my BIOS knowing that it is not safe to do?

    Please help me!
    .. .and make sure that this file to update the BIOS is not infecting hundreds of other users!


    Don t worry buddy there is no virus
    The BIOS file is safe and I guess that your virus scan recognized the file as a virus because of the similar application procedures

    First of all you should not update your BIOS if your laptop works well!

    Second, you must disable all 3 rd party applications like virus, firewall, malware, software software of scans, while the BIOS update!
    These tools can affect or interrupt the process of updating the BIOS and the laptop cannot!

    You know that the update of the BIOS is a sensitive technique and if something goes wrong during the update, then you will not be able to power the device!

  • Satellite P20-801 BIOS update

    Hi all

    I have a question about updating the bios on my Satellite. I got it off ebay a few months back, reinstalled the OS and now try to update the drivers, bios, firmware dvd - rom etc.

    I tried to download the update of the bios for my laptop (PSP26E-02V79EN) and according to the toshiba site, the latest available bios is version 1.10. It is very strange, as the bios I have installed is version 1.4. It's what the real Phoenix bios and the Toshiba Diagnostic tool says. How can this be?

    Also, does anyone know if it is possible to reflash the bios with the original bios Toshiba, rather than the one Phoenix? If so, could you please tell me how?

    Thank you very much


    I have P20 over two years, and I've never updated the BIOS so far. The device works without problem. It is not necessary to install the new BIOS just if you find that some update is available.

    You are right about the BIOS on P20. This is Phoenix one. As far as I know, it can not be exchanged with Toshiba one. If you want more information about this, contact the customer Service of your country partner.

    Please check the last BIOS update on

  • Qosmio F50 - 10Z Bios Update crashed - how a cmos reset?

    I have a Qosmio F50 - 10Z and prompted by toshiba I downloaded the Bios Update and started to install.
    My screen saver came and it crashed.

    Not turn off (even after pressing the power button for 15 seconds).
    The drums and then put back. Computer skills on but the screen is blank and will not boot to the top.

    Tried to take part to Flash the bios by removing battery cmos/rtc (whatever it's called) but cannot find the battery and got to the point where I wasn't ready to dismantle any more (nobody else never disassembled a?)

    Could not find information or diagram or picture where the battery has been on the net... manual really useless laptop)

    Found reviews records of crisis, but I don't know what that means.

    So, how to I reset the bios?

    Please help - you're my only hope.

    > So, now, I find the cmos/rtc battery (if it's rechargeable explains so why does not easily localized) removed, he persevered on in a more accessible place - always reset BIOS

    Removing battery RTC would not help reset you mate sorry to the ROM BIOS module but what you did was completely useless
    It seems that the ROM modules where the BIOS is stored, was not properly flashed or something went wrong during the flash procedure

    In case of bad you the mobo is unfortunate but I think that Flash module ROM once more with a disc of crisis could help solve this case
    But the fact is that flashing the ROM module with a disc of crisis can be done by a technician of Toshiba ASP.
    That's why I recommend contacting the guys in your country and ask for flashing ROM

  • Satellite A660 - 18 BIOS update & fails (re-visited) HARD drive recovery

    Referring to an old thread from my friends...

    I tried earlier to update the BIOS of v1.80 for v1.90 (whether by the automatic update tool Service Station and the direct download of the update of the BIOS).

    Whenever the update of the BIOS ran, he abandoned arguing that the battery was low (it was not), alternating current was not on (it is) and the existing BIOS version was superior to the new version (it wasn't).

    The real problem seems to be that the version of the BIOS (as shown in "Toshiba HWSetup") is:

    + The BIOS version = V234567890. 00/00/00000000000 +.
    + Version EC = 1.80 +.

    However, in the Diagnostic PC Toshiba tool the BIOS version on the page of basic information is correctly reported as 1.80

    At the point where I couldn't be worth blat my disc with the original image and try again. I was hoping that Toshiba would set the BIOS update to fix the problem. Didn't happen.

    They released v2.00 BIOS in June 2011 and would not always up to date. So I backed up my data and tried to blat of the machine to factory State. What a nightmare...

    The recovery image doesn't work well at all!

    The first bit works (the original partition creation and image copy), but after the startup of Windows and the script factory Toshiba intervenes, all sorts of problems begin.

    First of all, the thing stuck several times in a process of "assessment of system performance. This happens in several phases of reboots because the drivers are installed. Then there's a bunch of bug script error messages and DMI analyze the errors you will need to click on ' close and do not report the crash "type dialog. What makes it more difficult is that the Toshiba factory configuration script sets up a blank page trying to see you on what the bureau is to be avoided. Even if you try to pass in the Manager of tasks to complete the process deadlocked, it gives you a few seconds grace before forcing the Office to lock and hide behind the white screen again. If you're quick and good time, you can stop the evaluation of performance at a standstill (I think it's just the thing to the Windows Experience score). Same thing to reject the other boxes of error...

    Finally, I arrived at the end of the script and the machine was built with all of the original software.

    The program HWSetup still reports the version of BIOS of nonsense and the PC Diagnostic tool always reports it correctly.

    The Service Station program now does not even start. It crashes with a message + "request the Toshiba Service Station could not initialize. Try to restart or reinstall the application. » +. I downloaded the last being on the website and installed... To be hosted later with the same message.

    Program update direct BIOS for v2.00 made his usual thing you ask that the current BIOS version is greater than 200 and abandonment.

    I even read in a FAQ that some recovery routines do not work correctly with more than 4 GB of RAM (I have 8 GB). So I did all of this once again with only 4 GB installed and the script was just as broken for 4 GB 8 GB.

    I ran PC complete diagnosis for machine test suite and it turned up nothing.

    A little confused now... Maybe time to log a failure while I have a few more months of warranty left. But the machine actually works, just can't update the BIOS. Would be my luck if a problem arose just after the warranty has expired, and they said 'just update the BIOS...

    In front of me, I 3 laptop years. Over the past three years, Toshiba has offered 3 BIOS updates. I don t care about it and still use the original version that I got with my laptop. I want to say, why change anything and start this risky If update everything works fine and it does.

    Several times I have read here that people write about the problems of updating the BIOS and damaged BIOS. This risk does not apply to me just having the latest version.

    Anyway, if you want to have all past orders on your laptop, it is without a doubt your legitimate right. In General, the BIOS updates are tested before Toshiba offers for download so I really put t understand why you have this kind of problems. The problem with the installation of recovery is also strange.

    A few months ago, a friend of mine bought A660 and I helped him create recovery DVDs, and we also tested the recovery procedure everything including the three options:
    Back to out-of-box state
    Recover without changing the hard drive partitions
    Get a custom size partition

    Everything worked perfectly so I m really confused about everything you write.

    Unfortunately, I can't help you with this. When I could have your laptop in front of me to see exactly what is happening, it will be much easier to understand all of this.
    I updated the BIOS on different laptops, and I got lucky because every time that everything was fine.

    Your laptop is guaranteed valid so I recommend you contact Toshiba service provider in your country and ask for assistance.
    What do you think about this?

  • Satellite L40 - 13G: Bios update is not on Vista SP1

    I have a Satellite L40 13 G and the latest Bios update refuse to update.

    I'm trying to update my BIOS because the laptop freezes randomly in time and I have problems of "graphic design" where the lag games where there is no form of explosion such as gunshots or a bomb.

    There are no instructions, not in the exe and certainly not on the screen. If I didn't know how Flash a BIOS I would certainly not choose the .bin BIOS file in the directory between all DLL files.

    Thank you

    Hello Jako

    Can you please tell me what your problem is now? What questions are you writing about?
    If I understand you well you have correctly updated the BIOS. Am I right about that?

    And what now? What do you mean?

  • Satellite L500-1TU - BIOS update error

    Hello, today I was updating my drivers and when I started on my bios it crashed while it was up-to-date. After waitting for a long time and see the computer crashed, I turned it off. Surprise, surprise, when I turn it on I don't see a black screen. Is there a way to reset my bios drivers? And if I have to send it to a support centre, will they format my drive?

    Thanks in advance

    > Is there a way to reset my bios drivers? And if I have to send it to a support centre, will they format my drive?

    There is no link between the Bios and the hard drive. They will reflash your Bios, all data on the hard drive you will be intact. But you must know that reflash Bios is not free, you will have to pay.

  • Satellite 1410-604-BIOS update > update BIOS Incorrect in the web?

    Hi there again!

    Now with a new and strange issue.

    We all know that tell old... "If it does not break, don't fix it." And if you put in more computer terms, "especially if it's a BIOS.

    Yes, we all know that the BIOS is something quite dellitate to manage. For some reason, we normally feel as if we manage something like nitroglycerine, or radioactive products. And it's because we all know who is put at risk at the moment: our (or sometimes other) computer, the whole system could end up as dead as some pieces of metal, plastic and son.

    Well. I passed through all of this, more than 10 times in my life, and only once, it went wrong. But since this old motherboard was already dead, it was not important. But I've always been EXTREMELY care. Allways cross checked everything before you do anything, allways has a backup and a way to allways and restore that backup... I did COMPAQ systems, which have been prepared in this way. A BIOS update was about about a disc, turn on the PC with the disk in the floppy drive and wait. And if you don't like the results, you just click on 'back to a previus BIOS' and that was it... very nice. And easy.

    A few days ago a friend gave me a Toshiba Satellite 1410 604 to solve some problems that have been her crazy. After you remove a Norton Internet Security has expired, install avast and scan, I found more than a hundred of files infected with a variety of viruses, malware, trojans, and everything you could imagine. Avast all removed, but the rest of the operating system was so unstable that we decide to format it and install from scratch.

    I asked for the restore disks, which obviously it failed because they were lost in one of his trips. After that we had confirmation of Toshiba representatives there is no disk recovery available for this model, because it is too old, we decided to install from scratch like any other normal PC and resigned to losing some of the utilities accompanying that CD and are not available for download on the Web site.

    I downloaded all the software available for this model, including two updates to the BIOS. (In reality an update, but in two versions: Windows and traditional) and prepared a CD with all the drivers and programs as if it were a new system installation. And everything was fine, no problems at all. Until we arrived at the wireless LAN card, but that's another problem is already solved (the mini PCI card for the WLAN does not support the encriptación WEP or WAP, and it is not possible to connect to any LAN encripted wireless).

    At this point, and when I started setting up and activation of peripheral PCMCIA and USB devices (this computer only supports USB 1.1, 2.0 not) I discovered this text from Toshiba Web site:

    "This Bios update adds functionality to your system.
    (BIOS stands for Basic Input and Output System. This program is stored in a chip memory dead on the motherboard.
    When the computer comes on, the BIOS is launched to perform various functions to start.)

    For more detailed updated information, please refer to Information update BIOS Toshiba"

    (you can find it here):

    [], you need to search for:

    Satellite 14xx
    Satellite 1410 604

    Quite specific. Isn't?)

    According to the information in this Web site, the available BIOS fits the following models:

    "Satellite 2410 414, Satellite 1410, Satellite 1410 - 654S, Satellite 1410 814, Satellite 2410-303, Satellite 2410-304 s, Satellite 1410 354, 2410-601 Satellite, Satellite 1410-401, {color: #ff0000} * Satellite 1410 604 * {color}, Satellite 2410-404, Satellite 1410-301, Satellite 1410-304, Satellite 2410 S403, Satellite Pro 2100, Satellite 1410 S203, Satellite 2410-304, Satellite 1410 554, Satellite 1410 S102, Satellite 1410 - 354F, Satellite 2410 703, Satellite 1410-303, Satellite 2410 - S203, Satellite 1410-801, Satellite 2410 603, Satellite 1410-902.

    Yes... it's here!

    Now when you go into the "Toshiba BIOS update information", you get:

    "Ref. FAQ: TRO0000000b07.

    A BIOS update is a {color: #ff0000} * operation is relatively simple and can be done by computer more competent users * {color}. All BIOS updates can be obtained from "BIOS update" Section download click here...

    Note: the BIOS files are specific machine the correct BIOS for your machine should be used. »

    Please note that Toshiba does not disencourage BIOS manipulation, on the contrary: they even encourage people to do. It is not badly needed, but at the same time that they encourage people to 'play' with such a delicate question, at the end of this page, in small letters, they say:

    "Toshiba provides this information"as is"{color: #ff0000} * without warranty of any kind * {color}, explicit or implied, including, but not limited to, the implied warranties of quality market or adequacy has a specific use."

    This should trigger yellow alarms in our minds.

    + "Human error is inherent in man, and it is not possible to eradicate. It will be displayed always, sooner or later"(Prof. James Reason). +

    And finally, I made the mistake. Although I have read this warning, I remembered all these successful BIOS update with COMPAQ and relied for Toshiba. This update was available there, and Toshiba told me that it was for this computer. Great!

    So finally, I disconnected all devices (USB), removed the PCMCIA (WLAN), plugged the battery charger to avoid any possible battery problem, restarted windows, and then Windows started the update (windows version, such as recommended by Toshiba). This drug looked very nice, nothing different from what I usually see on these old COMPAQs.

    As reported by the update program, the system would restart. And in fact he did.

    Windows normally closed (a little faster than normal, but without mistakes, and since there is no other programs that most - even the antivirus not working - no), the computer turned off, all lights (normal) offshore, and then again on...

    {color: #0000ff} * BEEEEEEEEEEEEP... BEEEP... ... BEEEEP * {color}

    OMG! I never movement something SO bad. 3-1-1!

    And now... What a 3-1-1 is here? Award BIOS would mean no card graphics or video deffective card, but it is not true, because it worked 20 seconds ago. There are BIOS.

    He never came again to life. He's still 3-1-1 beep.

    But now comes the investigation on the human factors involved in this accident.

    I found I committed the following errors:

    * (1) * rely in the constructor, even if they have WRITTEN their information may be incorrect or incomplete. (BAD if I was a detective QA & QC).

    * (2) * I cross checked deep enough (until it was already too late).

    * (3) * I haven't looked above for how to make a backup of the BIOS to restore must anything deceive you.

    * (4) * let Toshiba lead me to a path that I didn't walk, just because of their supply of 'increased functionality.

    * (5) * Beleave in Toshiba when they said "relatively simple operation and can be performed by the most competent computer users"... they never said it is infallible. "."

    Then I began the most interesting part of the investigation.

    {color: #0000ff} * "what went wrong?" * {color}

    Obviously, the update of the BIOS has not somewhere, somewhere. And I wanted to know what and where.

    First thing, I discovered that there is another Toshiba search engine called "askiris" ([]) and I looked to see if, for any chance I could get the old BIOS 1.20 version which was installed at the origin of this machine.

    And I found something... VERY interesting:

    GOOD! Or not?

    Let's take a look:

    First thing I did was download all four files.

    Then I took the same version that made the accident: 1.40

    I unzipped the file, which I found:

    11 archivos 3 530 212 bytes
    3 dirs 9,404,600,320 bytes free

    And I got my first surprise here: there is a {color: #ff0000} * README. TXT * {color} that was not present in the file that I downloaded earlier from the repository of drivers.

    So I went the readme.txt and I found this:

    'README. CDC TXT 31/01/2003
    Flash BIOS version 1.40 for Satellite 1410
    This BIOS is applicable for the following models:

    Satellite 1410-S105
    Satellite 1410-S106
    Satellite 1410-S173
    Satellite 1410-S174
    Satellite 1410-S175
    Satellite 1410-S176
    Satellite 1415-S105
    Satellite 1415-S106
    Satellite 1415-S115
    Satellite 1415-S173
    Satellite 1415-S174
    Satellite 1415-S175
    Satellite 1415-S176
    Satellite 2410-S203
    Satellite 2410-S204.

    Please note that the model 1410-604 is * NOT * listed.

    I thought ' well, there must be another archive... ". »

    But then I realized a name that seems familiar, that is, in the directory where I unzipped this file 1.40, and the name is:

    {color: #0000ff} * 2410A9V140. EXE * {color}

    So I took the other file, the update of BIOS_Win, and I discovered that the name of the file is:

    * {color: #0000ff} 2410A9V140. EXE, {color} * (Ups!)

    So I once again, uncompressed to find:

    No readme file...

    Then another issue raised in my mind: what happened to the other file 1.40? What did the other 2410A9V140. EXE are inside?

    * {color: #ff0000} they have two 20 files and 1 046 461 bytes. I asumed that they are the SAME two folder {color} *.

    And the readme file does not list the model 1410-604 in its readme file, so I can't explain it except as a Toshiba error. * {color: #ff0000} they put an incorrect BIOS on their website and has proposed updating and somehow lead to such mistakes. {color} *.

    (Except in the case that one of these models is a name that is different from the model 1410-604, and if that's the case... now I don't know why this BIOS do not work with this computer).

    The worst thing is that neither the other files (V1.10, 1.20 and 1.30) lists the 1410-604, apparently so no solution possible workaround for this problem. I need an original v1.20 to the CMOS, and Toshiba seems to have. They offered me to solve the problem, leaving the laptop to an ASP, and pay only € 95 for the work and about € 280 for a motherboard replacement, I will get it resolved. But they offer no guarantees of their possibilities because is a model "too old" and "abandoned" and "unsupported"...

    In other words, they said 'you don't have to bother with it, just go and buy a new' (something of quite out of my reach in this time of crisis): P

    Thanks for reading so far.

    Now, what I need is to get ideas on a work around for this, my ideas are:

    (1) the CMOS has some startup that works (it allows a roll-back if you have the appropriate file). So I need a good BIOS to burn in the CMOS memory, the SAME SAME model (a backup BIOS) but the backup should be sufficient for the burning program (CHGBIOSA.COM).

    (2) it is always possible that the BIOS might be OK, but the CMOS data has been corrupted somehow. If so, the CMOS of compensation could solve problem. But I wasn't able to find a clear cmos from the outside button, and after disasembling I took battery, with no good result. I try to leave the MOBO without battery for a period more long (I left it about 20 seconds) just in case where 20 seconds are not all capacitors for well pass zero values. I don't have a lot of hope in this point.

    (3) try to get a REAL good update from Toshiba. I contacted technical support several times, and I was able to verify that they are only - phone operators, with a script in front of them, and when the problem is going - out of reach, they fall in the same response: "you must go to an ASP. I still have a faint hope to find someone who really knows a little and could illuminate with a good BIOS in this disc.

    (4) as far as I could find, this BIOS is not any BIOS-manufacturer known. It seems that it has been developed by Toshiba (own brand), so the Phoenix crisis recovery disk won't be of any help here. As well as any other BIOS recovery tool not designed for Toshiba BIOS. But I'm open to all ideas, which could be put to the test more or less safely. (Remember that the 'BIOS-BOOT-PART' feature still works, I don't want to lose that possibility alone of redemption).

    Wwwaaaaoooowww... what a falks long post! Sorry about that!

    Forgive me, but I wanted to be really clear.

    Someone give some tips or advice will be greatly appreciated.

    Please don't say that I shouldn't be doing... I already know that. I already did some research and found my mistakes, not to repeat them. Now, I need to spend, to move and to try to solve this problem, or at least learn to solve similar things. As much as possible.

    Thank you once again, in advance, and sorry again.

    Modified subject to beter reflect what the problem is (apparently erroneous file BIOS in Toshiba Download Center).

    Hi Fenix,

    Wow... He tooked a lot of time to read your post...

    Maybe I can help you.

    The Bios in the website is the right one. If you have downloaded the right version of the Bios.

    Toshiba America, which has most of the time the Askiris you used isn't accurate models for Toshiba Europe.
    This should be the reason, why does not the readme file contain the European model.

    I'll try to do an update of the fresh Bios using the update of the traditional Bios.

    Copy the files on the disk, put it in the floppy drive, press and hold power on the notebook tab.
    After that the laptop is off, press on and hold the key on the left side of space power on the laptop new bar and wait until it turns off again.

    If your laptop does not power perhaps the most, the RAM is default?

    Therefore, if the use of the traditional Bios or change memory doesn't help, and your laptop is still dead you should go to a SPA, but it will cost money.

    I now have my fourth Toshiba laptop and I had never problems with the Bios updates.

    The 1410 is very old I think, so before you go to a SPA, I'd buy a new ;)

    Best regards
