Satellite A60: Problem of memory after update Bios V.1.9
I've just updated my bios to version 1.9 last week. Previously, I've upgraded my RAM from 512 MB to 1.5 GB (P4 2.8 GHz., 40 GB HARD drive) and my phone worked perfectly with the old Bios and RAM. After the Bios Update to the new version, 1.9, my laptop does not accept the module of RAM upgrade, windows xp still shows the blue screen, and then restart.
After upgrading RAM off, my laptop works again. I tried several ways to solve this problem as take the battery, then reinsert the RAM or even formatted my HARD drive and installed a new Windows XP, but it didn't work. So what can I do to make my laptop to accept the upgrade of RAM? How to solve this problem? For this reason I now intend to buy a new laptop, if the problem can not be solved since I simulate a program on this laptop, so it requires a lot of memory.
Thank you very much in advance for your answer.

I put t really know what is the problem with the new update of the BIOS. In my opinion, you should contact the after-sales Service of Toshiba partner in your country and explain to them the situation. If your new module memory is compatible with the unit you should tell you want to have the old version of the BIOS. As much I know as technicians for this.
If they see that there is a problem with the BIOS update, I'm sure they will for free.
I am a novice user and have a Satellite C660 under warranty that I don't use for surfing the net and Ebay so I hope I can explain my problem!
Toshiba bulletin board said that the need to update BIOS, so I followed the instructions but since then I have no internet connection, and cannot restore the connection that I lost all help Toshiba Bulletin Board today lost and none of the programs to sort the problems work - e.g.set assistants etc. I did not yet create rescue disks, but if I try to create them now I'll be able to restore to factory settings?
Can someone tell me if it's a failure caused by the BIOS update or I would return laptop to John Lewis for repair? Thank you very much for reading this
The default settings in the BIOS load after update? If this is not the case, go into the BIOS and load the default settings. You can enter the BIOS if you press F2 before Windows start and then press the F9 key to load defaults. Then save & exit the BIOS Setup.
You can access the Internet now?
You try to access the Internet with LAN or WLAN connection?
Also check device manager if all devices are recognized correctly.
> I did not yet create rescue disks, but if I try to create them now I'll be able to restore to factory settings?
You can create the Toshiba Recovery disk every time. Just launch the pre-installed Toshiba Recovery Media Creator and follow the instructions on the screen. You need just a few blank DVDs to create the discs. Disks contain a factory image of settings which can be restored each time and how many times you want to so with these disks, you are on the safe side ;)
exact model is Satellite A300 PSAGCA-06M01N under Win XP.
I had a problem with the webcam, and I read in the forum that it can be solved by a BIOS update. so, I advanced and downloaded the latest version of the BIOS on the site of toshiba, especially for my laptop model. It went quite well with no error.
However when the computer restarts after that the BIOS updated my touchpad no longer works.
I went to Device Manager and could still see the Synaptics touchpad device and it says "this device is functioning correctly. but its completely dead and will not respond with the 2 keys. before I updated the BIOS I never had any problems with it.
I tried FN + F9, nothing helps. plugged in a USB mouse and it works without any problem. In fact, when I plugged in the mouse the synaptics software says "Deactivation of the key because of the external pointing device" for the device driver for the touchpad works.
If I remove the mouse, it will say the touchpad is restored, but it still doesn't work. restarted several times and still the same problem. went into BIOS and chose "default" not still a no go.
Can someone offer any advice or ideas please?
I really need the touchpad for the way I use the laptop...
In many cases, the touchpad (pointing device) can be enabled and disabled in the BIOS.
I think you should check if this option is available in BIOS and if so, check whether it should be enabled.
I updated the BIOS of my Satellite C50 - B - 14 d (PSCMLE) to 5.10 (a final release early sept. 2015).
The update succeeded, and the laptop runs as long as I do not install the drivers for the card WiFi (Atheros AR9485).
If I try to install the driver (it does not matter which, those of the Toshiba website or those of the manufacturer, of), the laptop crashes before the end of the installer.
Installing drivers from Device Manager makes the laptop freeze on when Windows starts (I tried 7, 8.1, and 10).
Completely on the Windows logo screen it freezes, and I have to turn off it.
In addition, the wired network adapter is not detected (it does not appear in Device Manager).
The same question is described here (http://www.eightforums.com/general-s...ses-start.html), but no solution.
Any suggestion? The BIOS may be downgraded? The BIOS update utility does not Flash an older version.
I also have exactly the same problem since updating my BIOS to 5.10 with my Toshiba C50 - B - 14 d PSC MLE
I have to start windows in safe mode without network to disable the Atheros AR9485 before restarting again in normal mode.
I now have to use an external WiFi adapter as my LAN port is now also lack!
Upset that the BIOS update has broken all my embedded network on the laptop.
I tried to update the Atheros drivers to the latest version, but as soon as the device is turned on again the system crashes and we're back to square one.
There is no solution that I can find other than turning off the unit and live without built in WiFi + LAN.
I hope Toshiba can be remedied with a new BIOS update?
I did a bios update and installed win 2000 on my satellite pro 4600...
He was working before the bios update, also with win 2000.
When I installed the video driver, my laptop didn't work anymore. With safe mode I ve uninstalled the video driver, and the system worked again, but only with 16 colors.
Is there someone who has recognized this and has a solution for this problem?
Help please, if possible in Dutch!
(Sorry for the bad English)
It's very strange question. It's really not known drivers me the BIOS update can do some influence on some installed.
Have you tried to install the Toshiba established the Toshiba download page 184.108.40.2062 driver version?
I have a psaa9 A100-237
I recorded my book and went in the updates section
There was an update of the available BIOS, I had version 2 before I updated to 5.10.
Now everything has gone well, but the laptop is restarted, it blocks every time on the start screen where the toshiba logo is displayed.
I can't log into BIOS, boot from the CD or anything.
When I press ESC black screen just showing bios version 5.10 memory pass and things, also written there is error TRM (TPM?) or not found.
I used the method of updating the bios windows and followed all the directions, wts the problem?
May I ask why you updated the BIOS?
You are 100% sure that you have updated the BIOS with the correct procedure and used the good BIOS?
Have you read the Description of the Toshiba BIOS update before continuing?
As far as I know the BIOS 5.1 has been released to use and install Vista on this laptop!
Hmm, maybe something goes wrong during the update procedure and, therefore, the laptop cannot load and start correctly.
After using the original BIOS updated to programm my P300 - 18M can not find wireless networks.
I've updated with file BIOS on 2008-09-22 without any problem. The strange thing is: using the network wireless switch
in front of the P300, it activates the Bluetooth on or off instead of the wireless network card. The wireless card is now is still running, but can't
find any network.
Another labtop sees several wireless networks, as well as the P300 did before upgrading the BIOS.
Can someone give me some advice or help me with an older version of BIOS for Windows XP?
Very strange problem, but maybe it can be solved very easily
You should try to simply update the WLan driver.
In addition, you should access the BIOS and it should define the default settings.

I have laptop Satellite P300D - 12 c and recently, I put a new hard drive, the Seagate momentus 7200 RPM 2.5 "500 GB. It works well, but I have a strange problem; normally when I reboot the laptop when it will close something sounds, in the figurative sense I could say "something moves" for a bit in the DVD - ROM drive and shuts down and then restarts.
Now, when the reboot happens to the part of the dvd - rom drive, I described above it stucks there... "something is happening" on the dvd - rom drive as trying to permanently access a dvd or something and he does the same thing until I force it to shut down by pressing the appropriate button. It happens once in two attempts to restart.
Does anyone have a solution or a tip or something? If you do not understand something to tell me,
Thank you very much
I agree with Akuma. Maybe the drive is loose and so you should try re-allocation of places there.
Maybe it works
And updated the BIOS, you can find the Toshiba site:

Good luck and give us feedback! :)
A week ago, the Toshiba software installed on my C55-A-100 Satellite suggested that I installed a new version of the BIOS to 1.3.
Since installing it my Satellite will not turn off.
If I close the lid the screen turns off but the laptop is running, if I open the lid nothing happens and I have to keep my finger on the power button to force it to close.
The same thing happens if I press the power button to turn off, blank screen and it continues to run, then I have to force a shutdown by holding the power button pressed down. I also noticed that the satellite seems to take ages to power.
Can anyone provide a solution or experienced the same problems.
The Satellite is running win 8.1
Please change, as described on http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/kb0/TSB2B03EY0002R01.htm and try to proceed to a complete stop.
It work correctly?
Have you noticed this problem just at the moment where you change the options of closing lid and pressing the power button?
I installed the new WOOD update through the station of service and after restart, the screen remains blank (out of service)?
And on the external monitor you see a photo or not?
In my opinion, something goes wrong during the update of the BIOS, and so the entire computer doesn t start anymore. All updates are pre-tested by Toshiba, so I doubt that only the screen isn't working anymore.
You should try to remove the battery and unplug the AC adapter for an hour. Then install the battery and plug in the AC adapter. Make sure the battery is fully charged and then try to start your laptop.
It's working now?
Today I was installing recommended THAT BIOS update 1.70 to 1.90. During installation, the mouse cursor disappeared and has no reaction to the keys on the keyboard. But there was a message DO NOT TURN OFF COMPUTER. So I waited for long (an hour?), but the update progress bar was always in the same place - as my computers are suspended.
After a long time waiting without any response, I decided to reset the computer. Only way to do pressed turn on button for a few seconds.
But after that turn it on again there is nothing visible on the screen, only the reaction of the computer is that bright development under tension is turned on and hard drive will blink every two seconds. What should do? Please help me! I have very important data on the hard drive at this moment! Can I reset the BIOS? I tried to yutm on the computer after you press ESC and F2 key, but no effect. I put the CD with the operating system, but no effect.
Its possible that the BIOS chip is faulty, causing the update to the BIOS to fall down during the writing process.
If you have tried reinstalling the RAM and removing the power for an hour, it is not great thing else you can do except send it to an ASP for warranty repair.
I ve upgraded my BIOS of L50 Satellite to the latest version. Then windows disabled and can not enter the product manually key. Can't do the phone activation too.
When I click on activate Windows, it just goes to the start screen. I ve tried to restore the system and it's the same thing. Any advice?
Thanks in advance.
I don't know what L50 do you have exactly, but if your laptop comes with preinstalled OS, I recommend you to reinstall the OS using HARD drive recovery option and check this once more.
Can you please send your L50 exact model number?
I just bought my laptop Satellite A500-1GL today. I started at the top and plays a bit (nothing serious). The touchpad worked very well at the moment.
Then I discovered this tool to update the material and the update of the BIOS that worked without any problems. After I restarted the laptop, BIOS, loaded the default values of the installation and recorded.
After that Windows 7 (x 64) started the touchpad no longer works...
I downloaded the driver here and installed again once, still does not. I went into the BIOS, disabled the touchpad (I thought that maybe it's a bug...) and started again. It still does not...
I enabled it again in the BIOS, tried to push the function + F9, but it still does not... Finally, I used the recovery and installed a Windows 7 costs.
But unfortunately it still doesn't.
Now, I'm out of ideas, can anyone help?
Is there a chance to get the older version of BIOS to downgrade it?
Thanks in advance ;)
It seems strange that after update Bios touchpad no longer works.
> Is there a chance to get the older version of BIOS to downgrade it?
To be honest, I don't know where to find. In any case, do a search on Google. Perhaps, other users of the forum can give you a link to download.
The downgrade of the Bios is riskier upgrade procedure. So, be careful the next time...
Advice for the future; Do not touch the running system.
Dead by Satellite A200 - 1 c 3 after involuntary Bios Update!
It's a shame, but it seems that you need a help of a Toshiba ASP. technicians
In the best of cases, only the ROM module must be flashed once more in the worst case that the motherboard could be damaged. :(
Restart went well after update BIOS and Windows XP logo appears loads for a few seconds then a beep and restart - last good known or start Windows normally same effect.
Reboot back to start - this is a new laptop - using the BIOS of Toshiba s official download site.
Quite annoyed to try to find a way to upgrade or downgrade the BIOS.
Took battery and RAM to see if I can delete it?
Any ideas anyone?
I think you mean BIOS * update * and do not upgrade ;)
An upgrade is not possible
However, you can try to remove the battery and the AC adapter and wait an hour. After that, reconnect the battery and the AC adapter and try to start Windows.
Moreover I would load the default settings in the BIOS before starting Windows.
If it doesn't work, it seems that your ROM module needs to be reflashed. In this case an ASP can help you.
