Satellite C660-13R - BIOS update problem
I was updating the BIOS on TOSHIBA SATELLITE C660-13R of 64-bit windows 7. Downloaded driver toshiba web. To halfway the portable installation hangs. I left it for 40 minutes to run, but he did not return to the normal state. As the motherboard fan began to move at high speed, I decided to take out the battery. Result when I power my laptop back I 1 beep from the motherboard and a black screen.
Can someone help me please?
Of course, the BIOS update procedure has not. Something was wrong during the update process and it seems that the EMRPOM module was not properly flashed.
This is the reason why the laptop is no longer.
Well, if EMPROM isn t damage, it should be possible to re-flashing the BIOS module once more, using special version of BIOS and crisis disk BIOS.
Usually the authorized Toshiba maintainer in your country should be able to re-flash of the module using this disc of crisis.
I also read in this forum that some people managed to re-flash EPROM module using some 3rd party crisis disk found somewhere in the internet but it still does not
The ASP will therefore probably be your last resort
However, to use the forums advanced search option to find related discussions on the crisis disk BIOS could be interesting for you

It's the BIOS update is finished now. Of course, the BIOS update was interrupted and now of the BIOS chip is damaged.

Unfortunately not much. What you need is a professional help, so I recommend you contact the closest service Toshiba and ask for help. I'm sorry.

Any ideas? Thank you!
BIOS update requires the VAP (value added package) and all the security tools should be put off.
Here are full instructions of the update to the BIOS:
You can also check if new OS install this fix because this problem could be related to confused operating system, you know, but first try reinstalling the VAP and make sure you use the good BIOS.
Find it me difficult to update the BIOS 1.90 because I got the message that I had permission to run the update. Of course, I executed the request made by the administrator and try several times to restart Windows (Home prem 64 - bit). The last time when I installed 1.80 BIOS update there was not this sentence. Attach the screen with the message from the application.
Thank you very much.
In my opinion, there is a problem with Win7 version you are using. Maybe it's not enough to run as administrator, but you must be logged in as an administrator.
Please check it out.
By the way: why do you need new version of BIOS? Is there a problem with your laptop?
I have download the proper file, but saves it as tw30170w.rom. How do I run it? Windows does not recognize it.
I would try it with the traditional Biosupdate.
Download bios here-> http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com

Help me please...
After the launch of the upgrade of the bios on the win7 pc is off due to overheating...
Now the computer does not start, black screen, but the lights and the fan on
I followed a lot of posts to create a usb pen to recover the BIOS but I couldn't find the correct procedure and I don't know if where to find the correct bios for my laptop
Can you give me a hand with a step by step guide?
In the worst case you will need to contact the Toshiba authorised service provider in order to solve this problem.
To my knowledge, a special crisis disk BIOS is required for reflashing the EMPRO module.
Some people were abele to create this disc using a few 3rd party apps but it wasn't always so I guess you have to contact service engineer has set.

How can I flasch BIOS with other versions,
His big problem to work
Thank you and I hope you can help me...
The version of the BIOS should be mentioned in the BIOS settings.
Turn on the device, press F2 and verify the version here.
Also I recommend the settings of the BIOS back to default settings.
In the BIOS settings, you will need to press F9 to get the default value. Then save the changes and exit the BIOS.
Restart the machine and check how many processes are running in the context of the BONE.
I recommend disabling of certain non-essential processes in msconfig.
There, you can go to the Startup tab and could uncheck the unnecessary process.
I just formatted my laptop and I only get the Internet connection with a wireless usb antenna...
Ethernet, or wireless appear to work. Before the format, that it worked fine.
Here is the product
Please help with a solution...
Should I consider the adapter's death and stop trying?
I m wondering if you already installed the driver LAN and WLan essential?
What is the status of LAN and WLan card in Device Manager?

All the essential drivers for the Satellite C660 PSC0LE found on the page of the Toshiba UE driver
I hope someone can help or point me in the right direction please.
Yesterday, I wiped my laptop and reinstalled windows on it. When she finished and the laptop started I noticed an icon in the Quick Launch bar saying there was no connection then I opened Device Manager and 2 drivers were gone.

All the drivers for the supported operating systems you can find and download from Toshiba Download Center - http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com/innovation/download_drivers_bios.jsp
Have you already checked this page?
Please let us know if you can't find the correct drivers.
I sat and would update the bios for my Toshiba Satellite C660-1TT (PSC1QE-01D006N5)
Sloopy as I was, I left the computer to get a coffee, * obviously one of my children was there * and press a few buttons. This resulted in the computer 'frozen' after a while I was forced to turn off.
Now change back the time and date each time I start the computer, and I can´t get the wifi to work.
I tried to reinstall the bios again but then get the message that I already have the same or more recent bios and installation is complete.
Someone who can tell if I wrong somehow the computer into thinking it is a newer version or the mabye bring in the former and then update?
Grateful for any help! Robert
(excuse my bad English)
To my knowledge it is not possible to downgrade the BIOS in windows mode, because you will always have a notification, this new version is already installed.
To my knowledge the ASP technician Toshiba may downgrade the BIOS but only using the traditional version of BIOS (BACK).
But I recommend to test this workaround solution.
Shut down the laptop. Remove the battery and unplug the AC adapter.
Now let the laptop disconnected for a longer period of time, I think about 3-4 hours
Then plug the battery adapter and ac and access the BIOS by pressing F2 to turn on/off the unit.
Here, you must set the default BIOS (F9) and save the changes.
Now, start Notepad and check how it would work.
Usually, the date and time resets because the CMOS battery is empty. But I can't imagine that this could be a problem here, however, you can reload the CMOS battery running the laptop on area for 18 to 20 hours. During this time the laptop must be ONE.

No idea how I can update a PSC0QE C660 of linux? It works really well, but the keyboard problem is very annoying.
You cannot update the BIOS win Linux-based!
You must use Windows to Win-BIOS update.
I have a Satellite phone C855 - 19 X and the alert tempo TOSHIBA utility prompts me to update my BIOS. However when I am doing so I get the following message
Flash process will end!
Current platform have secure start capability, it must provide the location of storage NV by interface IHISI.
Please contact BIOS OEM Engineer to add the feature.
Without this IHISI interface, variables to authenticate will be modified or erased by flash process.
If you understand the risk and want to keep flashing.
You can add the following parameter in platform.ini to ignore the error.
SkipSecureBootProtectionCheck = 1"
Does anyone have any experience with this kind of problem? Should I add this parameter, or is otherwise around it? Because the BIOS will be affected I hesitate to do so.
Thank you in advance.
First of all, you should know that the update of the BIOS is a sensitive technique and using wrongly you can damage the motherboard. So be sure to always update the BIOS.
Second, the update of the BIOS is not quite necessary in case your laptop runs correctly.
You have problems using the laptop? Isn't it? Well, in this case I wouldn't touch the BIOS.
However, the error message is telling as secure boot
Secure boot is an available option in the BIOS settings. You should probably disable secure boot before running the BIOS update file.
I have a problem with * BIOS * update on my Toshiba * U500 - 1 d 8-PSU9ME *.
Currently, the BIOS is + v1.50 +, but on this page http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com/innovation/download_bios.jsp?service=EU
I found the new version + v1.90 +. (I know that the BIOS update should be made not when any problem occurs, but I occasionally some problems on startup etc...)
When I run the update * UBIOS.bat* that nothing happens, but the thread * WinFlash.exe* is running on background.
What can I do? I found this manual http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/kb0/HTD9502M10000R01.htm, but it is not useful.
If you have downloaded the BIOS v1.90 so you need to unzip (uncompress) first of all, this package. Inside the packaging, you will find the BIOS190.exe
You must run this exe file.
You say that WinFlash.exe is running on the background. Well, try closing this process and start then start the update
You can also reboot the device and might try to start the procedure once more
I obtained through Satellite L300 laptop and I want to update its BIOS (current v1.50), so I downloaded the bios update v1.60 - WIN and when I run the extracted PS10160M.exe file - I get a message that "this BIOS is not for your laptop.
What I am, I am doing wrong?
PS: that updating the BIOS was suggested automatically after registration on the Web from Toshiba site via the serial number.
UPD: it looks like autosuggestion fail: manual search shows that bios update 1, 60-win is not suitable for the model Satellite L300 PSLBCE. :-(
You used the wrong BIOS!
The European driver Toshiba page provides a BIOS for this Satellite L300 PSLBCE series and the latest BIOS right now is 1.50!
Currently, your laptop uses the latest version of the BIOS.
