Satellite A500-1GL - cannot upgrade the BIOS

Hello

I tried to upgrade the BIOS on my Satellite A500-1GL (PSAR9E) for awhile now, but a dead battery so I can not go beyond the security check at the beginning. Is it all of the way around it, like I'm connected with current alternative, so I don't see what the problem is! Could I have possibly self-extracting zip files.

Any help would be appreciated as this is very frustrating!

Hello

I think that you will not be able to update the BIOS, if your battery is dead.
Victory based BIOS update can be updated from Windows system, and there is a security option that allow you to update the BIOS only if the laptop is connected to the power adapter and if the battery is charged.

You can update the BIOS using a traditional BIOS version, but as far as I know that Toshiba service partner could do that.

If you have two options:
Purchase a battery in order to update the BIOS by using win according to BIOS version or you will get in touch with an ASP in your country and will ask you to update the BIOS by using the traditional version of BIOS.

But the BIOS update is necessary to you?

I have a laptop with the old BIOS version and I don't have that day even if the new version has been released.

  • Satellite A500-1GL: what are the essential drivers for Win7 64 bit

    Hello

    First of all, sorry for my English, I'm french :)

    Second, I'm going to buy this PC next month and I have the opportunity to buy it without a Windows license (I'm already a Windows license).
    So I'm lost to find the drivers on the download page, because there are several versions of drivers (for example drivers: Nvidia or Realtek Semiconductor Corporation)

    (Important drivers) drivers I need to download once to install Windows Seven 64-bit.

    Thirdly, I would like to know if it is possible to install display drivers downloaded from the Web of Nvidia site and not that of Toshiba?

    Thanks for your help :)

    Hello

    > So I'm lost to find the drivers on the download page, because there are several versions of drivers
    Satellite A500-1GL is a part of the PSAR9E series. If you need drivers then you must choose Satellite A500 PSAR9E

    > What (important drivers) drivers I need to download once to install Windows Seven 64-bit.
    Almost all of the drivers are important... the essential drivers are sound, lan, wlan, graphic card driver, touchpad, etc.
    VAP (value added package) and utility support memory card Flash are required for keys FN and buttons of media control

    > Thirdly, I would like to know if it is possible to install display drivers downloaded from the Web of Nvidia site and not that of Toshiba?
    Usually it s not recommended to use the drivers from nVidia or an ATI page because these drivers don't support drivers Toshiba overheating protection
    But if you want to use the nVidia drivers so that at you own risk

    Installation can be a bit harder running the exe file will not work because you will get a message that this driver is not allowed, but you can install all the drivers in Device Manager you can point to the driver files, stored on the HARD drive and this will allow to choose the nVidia Driver

  • Satellite U300 - how to upgrade the BIOS on a Linux system?

    Attempt to update the BIOS of my U300-153, which is described as an operating system independent on the download page, I find that the upgrade file is provided in
    http://Support1.toshiba-tro.de/Tedd-files2/0/BIOS-20090304140640.zip
    does not include the files to create a bootable CD, as described in the instructions to the
    IOS http://eu.Computers.Toshiba-Europe.com/innovation/FAQ.jsp?z=234&service=eu&from=faq_selection&CFID=B & FID = TRO0000000b07
    where Option 2 step 2 lists the files that are in the zip, and they are required to make a bootable cd. The files listed are not in the zip.

    It forces me to use Windows. My Windows is broken and I can't fix it, because Windows repairs destroy data (clearly indicated on the packaging of recovery CD) and installations of Linux. My Linux works very well, and I don't want the windows more.

    So how can I upgrade the BIOS? Either:
    1. use a true independent bundle of BONES (ie the promised approach of bootable CD). I can't find such a thing here.
    2 reinstall Windows, which trashes the laptop.

    Any suggestions?

  • LV RT2010 on PXI-8145RT - cannot upgrade the BIOS

    Hello

    My lab has a pair of PXI systems controlled by 8145RT PXI and LabView 2010 because we have not upgraded for awhile. As far as I know, this controller should be usable with LV2010 RT.

    However, when I try to install the software on the target using MAX, I get a message informing me that the software I would like to install (LV - Rt 10.0) is incompatible with the operating system loaded on the machine. The ethernet driver install without problem, for what it is worth.

    When you try to upgrade the BIOS, I first got a message that the controller contains the version 10.2 and 10.3 version is available on the host. If I try to follow the upgrade procedure (jumper W2 bridged, of course) the controller sees a bit of business network, reboots, gets a little more traffic, and then MAX tells me that the update has failed.

    I can see that the flash update program was transferred to the target and set as the boot executable, but clearly it was not entirely successful. Can anyone help with this? I upgraded to 512 MB CF card (which he has no problem using) and RAM 64 Mo - I didn't have an old 128 MB SODIMM autour. What is the problem? Starting with redirect series will help something? I have to build a null modem to make this work.

    For anyone in a similar situation.

    In the end, I decided to downgrade to LV2009 on my development machine and try things again. With the help of LV2009/LVRT2009/MAX4.6, I was able to upgrade the version of the BIOS on both of my controllers 8145RT - correctly we from 10.2 to 10.3 and 9.1 to 10.3. After that, I was able to install RT2009 + DaqMX + another need of the components on the controller for which I had updated size RAM and CF. There is not a lot of memory to spare, but the controller starts in LVRT(9.0/2009) and I have successfully deployed an application to test on this subject.

    My application may require an upgrade to faster hardware in the end, but the 8145RT must stay a usable under LV2009 for simple tasks controller. I suspect that LVRT2010 would work, now that I got the BIOS upgrade, but I'm not inclined to test this right now.

    As for the original question of the update of the BIOS fault, I'm pretty sure it is a bug in MAX 4.7.  4.6 MAX had no trouble to initiate an update to the exact same version as 4.7 was trying (10.3); I suspect that MAX 4.7 have not properly configured the CF environment to start the flash update program.

    Hope this helps someone.

  • Cannot upgrade the BIOS on Satellite P30 - 145

    Hello world

    just inherited a laptop P30-145, impossible to pass the bios. When I run the file, I get the message"BIOS update rom wrong format! "and then the installation program stops. How to pass? I do all right according to the Web site.

    Just one thing, the original restore disc wasn't available, so I installed a standard XP and updated the necessary drivers on the Toshiba site.

    Hello

    Try the 1.40 BIOS driver Toshiba page we:
    http://www.CSD.Toshiba.com/cgi-bin/TAIS/support/JSP/downloadDetail.jsp?soID=1236378&PF=true

    The BIOS is for Satellite P30 PSP30U. It the same series as the European notebook PSP30E series.

    Download the exe file and save it to the desktop. Then, create a folder and unzip the sp35v14.exe file in this new folder created.
    Now go to this folder and inside that folder, you will find some files.
    Read the Readme.txt file for the complete instructions for use the BIOS update.

  • Cannot upgrade the BIOS for my Satellite A300

    When I want to update my bios 2.70 victory, there is an error and the program said that it couldn't find the file bios.wph. So I can't update my BIOS.

    Thank you for your help.
    Vehbi Tirnakli M.D.

    What exact error message appears?
    And more importantly, have you unzipped BIOS files, after downloading? If not, do so and try again.

    Depends on the updated version of the BIOS on what operating system you are using. I assume that you installed Windows XP if you are using version 2.70. For Windows Vista, you must use version 1.30.

    Please check the good versions of BIOS.

  • Re: Satellite A500-1GL - Can t Access BIOS aftre updated

    Hello
    I have a laptop A500-1GL.
    Yesterday, I checked that the drivers download page, just to check if there is something new. and I noticed that there was a new version of the BIOS.

    My old BIOS:
    SystemBiosVersion: 1.6
    SystemBiosDate: 05/06/10

    the Web site was:
    Version: 1.7
    Date: 29/07/10

    So, I downloaded this file and flashed the BIOS... after the reboot, I checked the "regedit". and the version was changed to 1.7, but the date remains the same (05/06/10)!

    Now, this isn't a big problem - I know, but I wanted to check the BIOS configuration (before the start).
    So I restarted the laptop, you press "DEL"... nothing happened, went straight to Windows!
    I tried again, with F1, F2 ~ F12... anyway.
    So, how can I access the BIOS Setup screen? I tried re-flashing the BIOS again, but he keep saying that I already have the new version, so I can't flash.

    any ideas?

    It seems that something was wrong during the update of the BIOS, and so the laptop won't turn on.
    I'm afraid that you can't do anything else as to contact the local ASP m!

    The local ASP technician must check the device and possibly it might update the BIOS using a special BIOS and the special procedure.

  • Satellite A500-1GL: 2 questions: the fan speed & graphic card driver failures

    Hello

    I have 2 questions, hopefully someone can help me with that.

    * The first question - quick fan *.

    I'm on online gamer second life and world of the craft of war) recently my fan speed crank up to 90 percent for about 5/10 minutes before leaving quiet. Then speed up again after a period of time. I'm confused as to why he did this because when I check my cpu temp is only make 40%, and I use a cool buffer table.

    I'm looking for some advise here because all said Toshiba was making sure I had the latest bios update. But I would have thought it is not the processor overheating the fan must not be crank that quickly. My laptop is only 2 months old.

    Can anyone help, should I be worried?

    * Second question - graphics driver *.

    Also on a couple of times I got my screen briefly go black and then recover. A pop up appears saying something along the lines of the core of the graphics card.... Driver recovered. It flashes if fast, that I never see the entire message. Don't you think that something is wrong with the graphics card? (card nividia geforce gt300m)

    I really hope that someone can offer more help that Toshiba has done, as I am a bit unhappy to be problems on a 2 month old laptop.

    Thank you for reading and I look forward to any Advisor.

    The cooling fan is controlled by the fan table in the BIOS. Fan table contains information about the temperature and the fan speed that means the depands on some level temperature fan speed.
    Over all the possible game features as the CPU, GPU, produce heat and the heat dissipation is high
    Cooling modules would begin to turn faster if the temperature level would be exceeded
    This is nothing exceptional everything at stake

    I read on a similar question, and apparently, the graphics card DRIVER crashed during games
    Maybe it's a compatibility problem between game and pilot
    In most cases the graphics card driver update should fix this and I read on some forums that it has helped in many cases
