Satellite L300 BIOS update problem: "what BIOS is not for your laptop.

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.

    I searched HP's site and found several tips to resolve this.

    one of the tips was to check your Bios version and to the most recent update.

    I followed the steps carefully.

    1 check my bios version / date.

    2. check my cpu model.

    3 open the HP website and let it detect my laptop model (and it does correctly).

    Laptop HP ENVY 14-2136nr
    Model: LM764EA #A2N

    4 select my operating system (Windows 7 X 64)

    5 - Check the Bios Driver and download it.

    6 - everything seemed perfect and once I try to install the driver I get this massage of error (this bios is not for your laptop!)

    HOW IS IT?

    HI @ibraham-hashem.

    I see that you have a laptop of HP ENVY 14-2136nr and that you receive 90b fan error. One of the suggestions is update the BIOS, but when you tried you have received the message that it was not for your laptop.

    First of all, I ran the HP Support Assistant to help with updates and solve problems.

    Have you checked against viruses and malware?

    I try to restore the bios, and then retry the update. Restore the BIOS

    If it is not successful, I would go to the bios screen, and when you look down, you should see an option to restore the default values.  Please restore the default values.

    Now, try to install the update to the bios.  Updated the BIOS

    I hope this helps.

  • What is the best for your laptop: shutdown, standby, or hibernation?

    Original title: 'stop'?

    What is better for a laptop computer, stop every time, for sleep or Hibernate. It hurt to stop all the time.    Thank you Windows Vista


    Better to refer to the manufacturer of your system Support, their books online and their
    Forums about your model (with a grain of salt), because it will be the difference between the marks
    and even some models.

    Usually there is no exact answer but its best not to put the laptop off the coast and back
    in a field so it can be avoided. Shut down the computer using also therefore be able to short
    periods (several hours) using sleep or Hibernate would better save energy. Also allowing
    Cool and heat Electronices frequently is not the best for their long term use and
    life expectancy.

    Using power properly Plans with the right parameters of standby and Hibernate, which
    depends on how you use the computer, get the best performance and service life
    There is however no exact answer. Those who seem to be best for the way you use the
    system will probably also be better in the long term. If you "could" set with the magical settings
    that could optimize the functions of machinery and life, but then to use the machine in another
    model, as we all wish, then in fact you will get actually less usage and life
    If your usage patterns.

    One thing that many people forget, is that turn off the screen can also save power when you
    you are away a few moments and wouldn't turn the computer off. This will save
    some food through the use of a screen saver, but can be difficult to remember and does not record
    A lot.

  • SHAREit worked before, but since the last update of what YOGA can not find every laptop


    I used SHAREit twice with good results (may 2015)

    I tried to use it in early August and earlier, n the YOGA 2 1380 pro cannot find the laptop more although they are 20 cm from each other.

    And another Member, I just tried to help her by suggesting ShareIt also cannot establish the connection.

    And I see no option to ignore updates.

    All solutions?

    Thank you


    I just tested the new version, go to/from my YOGA 2 1380F pro, my A520 AIO, and there is no problem.

    SHAREit A520 AIO, window 8.1, version (SHAREit Info)

    YOGA 1380F pro 2, Android Kitkat, SHAREit Version 2.8.8_WW

    One thing to check is if the WiFi Yoga tape is set to Auto (both bands), or at least updated the corresponding band of the PC.

    IIRC, the PC needs to be connected to any wireless network, although the WiFi it must be turned on and not in airplane mode.

    After an update, you may need to re-pair connection of old/exsiting, by making that stupid 'number' correspondence between the two devices.

    In addition, on the PC, there should be an Easyplus Hotspot Lenovo, showing in monitor resources on the 'networks' tab.

  • Error "Windows has encountered a problem installing the software driver for your device." Windows found driver software for your device but encountered an error trying to install it.

    So I got a wireless mouse for my first time and it won't even install on my computer. It isn't the mouse because I tried other wireless mice and none of them work. In my device under other devices Manager there are only 2 USB receivers listed with question marks next to them. It is said that they can not find the drivers for the device.

  • Satellite L300 - after update BIOS BSOD appears

    Hello world

    I have a question about it. I have a Toshiba L300 with Intel GM965 chipset. I've been works very well with this laptop after using the Bios v1.40.

    However, recently, after an upgrade of the Bios to v1.50, I started to get the BSOD (quite often) in Vista that I had in v1.30 bios.

    If you have this problem and find the solution somewhere, please let me know. Much appreciate.

    Moreover, there are some problems with BSOD caused by the chipset GM965 reviewed on the site Internet of Dell and Intel. Most people say it's because the Vbios (video bios). The fact that after upgrading my bios to 1.50, the Vbios from my toshiba is always (most recent intel is 1572) 1436.

    If you have a newer version of the vbios, please let me know when you bought your laptop. Much appreciate.

    Here is an exchange of views on Intel and Dell website:

    Moreover, for those who cannot upgrade the driver Intel site, please uninstall the previous driver and install the new driver of the installation file (or do it manually). Contact me for more details if you need.

    I'm looking forward to having good and clear on your part answers. I don't like the answers- and made-up. (I'm not a fool).

    Thank you


    I'm still looking for answers about Vbios. Hope can hear someone here.

    In the meantime, I would like to use this thread to discuss chipset GM965 and question, you can meet with her. Obviously, the driver supported by Toshiba is an older version and is missing many features. Some people say it is not safe to use other pilots, but it is false. There is nothing wrong if you use the original equipment manufacturers, as they know more of 3 companies.

    Intel has released a new chipset GM965 - X 3100 driver to:

    Covering memo:

    with many correction of bugs (including for the extended monitors).

    To get the best performance new driver. You must uninstall the current driver on your machine manually from the Device Manager. You can then run the whole upward.

    Don't forget to add a light T & L SW for some software to improve their performance. (Look for how to improve x 3100 perforamce on this site support or the answer that and I'll show you how). For x 3100, SW mode will allow you to have some executives rate more and you can play your games as well as make your graphic works.

    Kind regards.

  • Satellite P200 - BIOS did not recognize my usb 3.5 drive "

    I have a few years ago:
    Satellite P200-1FY
    Reference: PSPB6E-0QR035FR

    I just bought a new hard drive WD20EARS (2 TB) 64 MB of RAM,
    and I connected on an external box<-> SATA USB3 (closed hot 'cc'), so plugin on my toshiba via USB (USB2.0 card)

    I partitioned the drive with 2 parts (1 part FAT32 (enabled): 930KB and 1 NTFS 1, 89 GB)

    * My problem is :*
    I am not able to detect the drive by the bios (bios updated with 2.7 "bios -"), in order, starting with partition FAT32)

    tests I've already done :*
    (1) connect this drive (WD20EARS) on a PC: HP 6530--> result b: drive is detected by the bios, it is impossible to boot the disk
    and the operating system is started correctly

    (2) plug in sametime a usb2 startup key and the disc--> result: WD20EARS disc is displayed on the selection of the bios (sometimes)
    but it is impossible to start on it. When I select the drive, the USB is booting

    Could you help me find the problem (bios, disk or box usb3) or have you updated to solve

    Kind regards

    Stand by.
    BIOS cannot detect the external HARD drive? You want to start OS saved on the external HARD drive? Is this correct?

    Tests 1 and 2 are related to this HP laptop?

  • Satellite L300: Supervisor password problem

    I just bought a Satellite L300 and installed all the drivers from the Web from Toshiba website.

    I created the user password in the wizard from Toshiba and once I configured the SUPERVISOR PASSWORD.

    But when I tried to enter in the Bios after reboot, the work of doesen't password and in the window when trying to change the user password, it also asks supervisor password and it still says: PASSWORD INCORECT.

    What can I do?
    And why this has happened?

    Hi mate,

    I think that in this case only an auhtorized service provider can help you. If you ave you forgot your supervisor or typed wrong password it can only be removed from an ASP.

    Here, on the site of Toshiba, you can find a list of the ASP s: decision-making supported downloads & => find an authorized service provider

    Just talk with them a little and they will help you! :)

    In my opinion, this has nothing to do with the BIOS and don't think that BIOS update is a solution for this...

  • Game Minecraft OpenGL satellite L650 - driver update problem - PSK1E


    I know that several posts have already highlighted this problem.

    I have a Satellite L650 PSK1EE.
    Sorry if this is not the right place to post but I could not find anywhere else to start a new thread.

    Essentially my children want to use * Minecraft * on this laptop. I downloaded it but get the error message that my graphics driver is not compatible opengl. I only have Intel. So I tried the usual driver updates, then I tried to download a generic Intel driver but I don't know which one is right.

    Once I have selected * chart * then * laptop graphics driver * s then I get the choice between 2nd or 3rd generation processors, accelerators and mobile chipsets, which none means nothing to me and I'm stuck.

    It seems that some people have managed to circumvent the built-in graphics card driver and update manually one this way, once you know what you download and then unzip and so on...

    Of course, I can waste my time.

    If anyone knows how to proceed, I'd be very grateful for any help so that I can stop spending hours Googling this.

    Thank you very much

  • Satellite L300 - boring loading problems

    Hello world.

    I've got my Satellite L300 nice for about 23 months now, and I absolutely love it.
    There is just one problem: my PC is not loading properly. There are always about a 1/50
    lucky, I have to play with the inputs and output for all 5-10 minutes each
    I plug it in time. I had this problem before (about two months ago) where I sent it
    Back to the store and they fixed. I was able to pick up there is still almost a month
    and everything worked properly again.

    It's really, really frustrating and I hope there is a solution simple sorta.
    Anyone who is familiar with this problem and to know what exactly is the problem?

    Thank you in advance.

    This kind of technical problems, there is no simple solution.
    If you have a serious issue with load problem, it is probably related to electronic power supply and it must be checked by authorized personnel only.

    Tell me but honestly: what can you fix these problems?

  • Satellite P755 - Bios is not accessible, but Windows works

    Hi all

    I have a big problem with my computer. My Bios does not appear...
    At the exit of Windows 8, I did a full format on my computer to accommodate this new OS with beauty. Some time later, I installed Ubuntu 12.04 in Dual-Boot.
    One of the two facilities are doing? lost me the BIOS, let me explain:

    Knowing that my computer is a Toshiba, normally, when I start, the first image that appears on the screen is the Toshiba logo and down ' press F * to access the BIOS. " But I have no more of this logo, instead, I Dual-Boot option appears asking me to choose one of the two BONES (I think it's the GRUB, I'm not sure, but he was purple, so...). After selecting one of the two BONES, I go straight to the page load of the chosen one.

    I didn't get worse, so I left it because it wasn't bothering me... until last night.
    My computer was getting a bit slow, I decided to format it again, but as I said, I have no BIOS, so not boot via DVD at startup. I had to format by Windows, leaving behind the Windows.old folder on the hard disk. But I wanted to fix my famous problem at the same time, so I decided to uninstall Ubuntu and install Windows 7 instead of 8.

    Everything was going well with uninstall and install.

    Win7 is restarted, still no Toshiba logo, and I get the Dual-Boot option, as before, asking me to choose between Ubuntu and Win7 (I already uninstalled Ubuntu), but this time, the screen is not "purple", it is black...

    When I'm on the Dual-Boot, there are only two buttons that work, the F8 and F10.

    When I press F10, I have this:

    Change startup options: Windows 7
    Score: 2
    hard drive: 97f097f0

    / Noexecute = optin

    When I press F8, I enter the menu of Windows repair, where there restore Windows, command prompt, repair Windows, etc...
    I tried a few things, typed on the command line like fixmbr, etc, but nothing worked

    I'm stuck on Windows 7 without Bios and a Dual - Boot does not work, I don't know what to do...
    I've looked everywhere where my problem comes from, but does not have the awnser.

    For more information, I have a Toshiba P755.

    Well, I hope someone answer, even though I know that this problem is a bit weird...

    Thanks in advance to all who will try ^^

    I think that the dual boot is always available in the Master Boot Record (MBR) and so this double menu boot appears to turn on/off the device.
    But this should not prevent the notebook to access the BIOS.
    Usually, you can access the BIOS by pressing F2 while turning on the laptop.
    I recommend that you press this several times in the line.

    However, I think that the reason why the Toshiba screen projection does not appear is simple: in my view the QuickStart has been enabled in the BIOS.

    You will find the option called startup speed in BIOS-> Advanced tab.
    Usually its normal value.

    If his play on Fast, the BIOS should start from disk built-in HARD (or SSD), the laptop would support only the LCD and keyboard internal and does not display Toshiba Startup logo. Therefore, put again to normal.

    In which case you would not be able to access the BIOS by pressing F2, I recommend to remove the portable computer HARD drive and turn on the unit without the HARD drive.
    Then press F2 to enter the BIOS

    Your comments and good luck would be appreciated,
