Satellite A60-106 BIOS update Boot failure causes

Hi, last night I tried to upgrade the BIOS on my PSA60E satellite to the latest version.

It seems to have failed because I can no longer turn the machine, the lights come on and the player clicks a couple of times before she turned off her car, this process takes about 2 seconds. That this problem occurred immediately after upgrading the BIOS I guess that the 2 are related.

Does anyone have suggestions as to my next step?

Thanks in advance Pete.


Well, if it s not possible to start unit after update BIOS procedure it seems that you have damaged module ROM. In this case, it is not possible to do something.
In my opinion the best way is to contact the service partner. Only the ASP can handle the problem :(

Good bye

    Fact the BIOS Flash update the BIOS or that requires a different file. I've updated a Satellite A60 BIOS to 1.9 but am not sure if cela flashed the BIOS as well.

    If this isn't the case, where I could get a file to Flash BIOS for satellite A60-106?


    Sorry, but you question is a bit confusing.
    The update of the BIOS flashing the ROM module I put t know which version is installed before upgrading the BIOS, but if after the upgrade, a new version of the BIOS appears then the procedure was a success.

    The good BIOS and how to upgrade the BIOS information you will find on the page of Toshiba.

  • Satellite A60-106: ATI graphics card driver update

    I have a laptop Satellite A60-106 and I was told to update my driver graphics ATI Mobility Radeon 7000 IGP, otherwise I won't be able to view the photos taken from the video.

    I'm unable to locate these updates on the Toshiba site. Nobody knows where and how I can get this update?


    I don't know if I understood your question right, but you are not able to look at images from your video camera to Mr. I'm wrong?
    I put t think that the graphics driver has something to do with this action.

    What applications did you use? How did you exactly connected the external device? Did you get any error messages?

    Just for the info: I used last time on my laptop the driver from the Web site. But on the Toshiba site I found a news that Toshiba recommended to use only the Toshiba drivers graphics and different drivers, you can install it at your own risk!

  • Re: Satellite A60-106 - deleting characters when you type

    Hi, hoping someone here can help me...

    Toshiba Satellite A60 106 running Windows XP missing characters when I type. If I type very slowly every key works fine. Many letters are removed to normal typing speed. This happens in all applications and does not load. The key repeat rate is also slower that we should (I know how to define it, the problem is not with the setting but with the fact that the setting is not honored or recognized correctly).

    Virus/spyware scanner reports clean. The problem started all of a sudden for no apparent reason and does not seem to be associated with any hardware or software changes. Tried to start in safe mode, try to disable all non-essential progams services started via msconfg but to no avail. problem still there.

    Laptop has historically suffered badly from overheating, but this problem is not related of course it's the same thing that the machine is hot or cold.

    Any ideas?

    Have you installed drivers for a keyboard or an external mouse? (for example, Logitech or Microsoft)

    If you boot into MSDOS, it always falls of characters? You can download a boot BACK on disk

    What BIOS version? You have the latest version?

  • Satellite A60-106: cannot open Microsoft Office 2003

    I have Satellite A60 - 106 laptop with windows XP Home pre-installed. After the recent failure of windows, I used the toshiba product recovery DVD. I managed to download other software like microsoft following works, note, Norton antivirus on CD. But Microsoft Student and teacher edition 2003 CD does not open in my CD/DVD drive.

    It makes normal CD to access the noice after insertion, but is not accessible. By pressing "run" displays the error as not accessible D:\, i/o device error.
    The same CD (microsoft 2003) opens with other computers.
    So, where's the flaw and how to rectify?

    I tried all sorts of advice through the web.

    Can someone help me please?


    For me, it looks like a hardware failure. The error indicates that the drive is not able to read from the Microsoft CD-ROM.
    There must be something wrong with the lens of the drive and therefore the lens cannot read the CD drive is not accessible!
    Maybe after cleaning the lens you can use this CD.

  • No wireless - Satellite A60-106

    I model Satellite A60-106, and I was wondering if a wireless connection is enabled on the laptop, because it doesn't seem to work when I go to a WiFi active area.

    Thank you

    Hello Kwana

    I'm not 100% sure but I think that your device has a wireless card. Please check in Device Manager if the wireless adapter is listed under network adapters. If the unit comes with a wireless card on the down side there must be a label of the card wireless with identification of the card.

  • 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 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. ', Satellite 1410-313, Satellite 1410-802, Satellite 1410 714, Satellite 2410-354, Satellite 2410 514, Satellite 1410-614, Satellite 1410 704, Satellite 2410 515, Satellite 2410-504, 2410-702 Satellite, Satellite 1410 S103.

    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." Toshiba shall not be liable to the topicality, accuracy, completeness or quality of the information provided. {color: #ff0000} * Toshiba is not responsible for damage caused by the use of any information provided, including incomplete or incorrect information * {color}. »

    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:

    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

    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:

    (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


  • 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 1130 Z24 BIOS update problem.

    I have download the proper file, but saves it as tw30170w.rom. How do I run it? Windows does not recognize it.

  • satellite a60 upgrate bios 1.9 b fail

    Hi everyone and especially for the people of toshiba'
    I have a toshiba satellite a60 psa (60th) and during the bios update 1.9 b, my bios crashed between installation 1/2, and now I'm desperately really distressed. My last version was 1.9 and worked very well. I have the opportunity to re write the Bios, but I can't find the 1st version. Please answer soon.

    Hello Viorel

    As far as know it of not possible to downgrade the BIOS. If the device has a newer version of the BIOS, you can t install the old version. In addition if you damaged the ROM because of the wrong BIOS update procedure, you will need to contact Toshiba partner.
    Unfortunately, only the ASP can install the BIOS again.

    Good bye
