Satellite L100 doesn't boot up - BIOS update problem

Hello world

I was running the BIOS update I downloaded on this site, when the system hang.
After a while I had to unplug the power cable to turn off the laptop.

It seems that the BIOS got corructed.
Now, I turn on the computer but the screen is always black, lights are green all the time.

I tried pressing F12, F2 by turning on and nothing happen.

Please help me if you can. Thank you! Albert

I agree with the user above.
It seems that something was wrong during the BIOS update process and now only the ASP can help you.

I would recommend contacting ASP, guys in your country and ask for later handling.

Good luck

  • Satellite C660 - Freez after boot - corrupt BIOS update 1.7

    The Satellite C660 had start-up problems: freezing screen after startup and very, very slow. Also a HARD drive recovery did not help.

    I tried an update of the Bios and loaded the downloadable file that at Toshiba (version 1.7). The Bios update has not completed and now the laptop does not at all.

    The warranty is void, I now buy a chip of bios in China and I'm looking for now the bios file.

    It's all them very disappointing and a large size of time and money.

    > The Bios update has not completed and now the laptop does not at all.
    That s it Plains really looks like the module ROM was not properly flashed.
    I think it's a problem with the hardware, since you had problems before the update of the BIOS.
    I think that affected the procedure for updating the BIOS.

    > As the warranty is cancelled, I now buy a chip of bios in China and I'm now looking for the bios file.
    Forget it mate ROM module cannot be replaced in most cases the module ROM must be flashed with a disc of crisis

    Would recommend asking a Toshiba ASP for help and reflash the BIOS using the disc of the crisis.
    This should not be very expensive

  • Satellite L300 refuses to boot after BIOS update


    L300 my girlfriend was terribly dragged so we decided to format C:. We did it with the XP restore disc that came with it.

    Then we had to update the drivers. We started the installation of upgrading the BIOS on Toshiba driver site, disappeared for a while and when we returned, the computer has restarted itself.

    He has been stuck in a cycle of the screen "loading windows" and one with a lower bar that says press F2 for this or F12 for this. Tried all the options in the start menu, not even safe mode works.

    We have tried to reformat with the previous method, by inserting the XP CD and by holding down the 'C' button when starting. We get the familiar "Windows Setup" screen, and it seems to load all the files from the CD windows installation. But when we come to the installation, we get a blue screen error message. "A problem has been detected and Windows has shut down to prevent damage to your computer...". Technical information: * STOP: 0x0000007B (0xF78D254, 0xC0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)

    Nothing seems to work, please help! We really want to save the images on the disk D: partition.


    Try to configure the BIOS to the default settings.
    You need to access the BIOS, and there you can set the default value.
    Please check if you can install the operating system by using the-> AHCI and compatible SATA mode.
    If you are using AHCI to include the SATA drivers. If you are using compatibility mode, then SATA drivers are not necessary.

    If you want to get access to the HARD disk before you install the operating system in the C partition, then I would recommend to start the laptop using a Windows Live CD WinPE and BartPe.
    Both are live CD what don t need an installation, you must boot from this drive only to access to content on the HARD drive.

  • Satellite Pro L100 does not work after BIOS update

    Okay, the computer is a Toshiba Satellite Pro L100 PSLA4. Problem occurred during an update of the BIOS on the official website of Toshiba. I downloaded the zip file, it extracts and activated the .exe file at the Interior.

    The window opened by the .exe is a program flashing BIOS, the .exe wrote at the same time a new BIOS file to a temporary folder.
    When he tried to use the program I got was an error saying it couldn't find the new BIOS to the entrance.

    I tried again only to get the same error. Then I left the laptop for several minutes and when I got home, I found a laptop no longer Virgin.
    On which I hear by an obvious lack of BIOS functions i.e. power LED does not change when the connection to disconnect it from the power outlet and the fact that I had to take out the battery to turn off the machine. When the power is turned on now it is check readers and restarts (no display, no beeps)

    What should I do?
    The first thing that comes to mind was to reset the BIOS.
    A problem, I can not find the RTC battery or a rider switch.

    Hi George

    I can't tell why it happened, but I can tell what happened.

    In my opinion, something went wrong during the process of updating the BIOS and the ROM modules was not writer properly.

    Simply says the BIOS update procedure has failed.
    In this case, you will need to contact the ASP in your country for a fix
    The technician must be able to rewrite the ROM module and updated the BIOS again.

    Good luck buddy

    See you soon

  • Satellite C855 - 19 X - BIOS update problem

    Hi all

    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've got the same laptop model and updated the BIOS to version 4.70 - Win and everything last week went well.

    I also have Win 7 OS but 32 bits.

    Just a question: have you you uncompress the package correctly before you run the exe file?
    You should do this in a folder created. Moreover in the majority of cases the VAP (value added package) must be installed on your machine.

    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.

  • Satellite Pro A300 - touchpad failed after BIOS update

    After that good BIOS update 2.00 to 2.10 / suggest by ALERT TEMPRO - the touchpad of my Satellite Pro A300 - GR 1 stopped working.
    He appears under the name hidden in Device Manager. The State of the device - "this device is not present, is not working properly or is not all its drivers installed." (Code 24) "reinstall the driver has no effect of course. I can also access the BIOS utility when you start pressing F2.

    Ideas to solve the problem will be highly appreciated!


    Normally, it should be possible access the BIOS, if you press F2, once you have turned on the laptop. Please check again and load the default settings there.
    And you cannot access the BIOS if you shut down the computer.

    You can use an external mouse on the laptop? Please check this too.

    I've also updated the BIOS on my Satellite A300 but I n t have a problem with the touchpad after the update.
