Satellite L670 - update the BIOS
I own a Toshiba Satellite L670 running on Ubuntu Linux. I want to update my bios from version 1.00 to last version 2.30.
But the site offers serverals versions window and one version of the OS "independent." I downloaded it and the .zip file contains only an .exe file I can't use with Linux.
How can I update my bios? Not there at - it no .bin file?
This Toshiba laptop model no is not supported for Linux and all offered stuff on the download page are designed for the Windows operating system only if you cannot update BIOS if you use the failure to take in charge of operating system.
Anyway, if there is a problem with your laptop BIOS update is not necessary.
Recently, I tried to date my Bios via the toshiba service station.
I closed all applications and ran the update, he completed the first steps and froze on the last step.
This is the breaking of the screen what I see:
Let him alone checking on progress ever 30 mins. and all night, still the same.
Its been like it for 24 hours now.
I'm afraid if I turn off / stop my laptop it starts.
Someone can help me.
PS: My laptop it works fine
There is certainly something wrong BIOS update doesn't take long
Seems that the procedure has crashed, but don t ask me why
What to say I hope you could restart the laptop and could repeat this procedure
But if the laptop does not start again upward, then you should get in touch with a local ASP. The ASP in your country may be able to help you and to reset the ROM BIOS using a disc of BIOS of crisis
Good luck buddy
Hello. I found two drivers support page to your versions of BIOS for my Toshiba Satellite A110:
Update the BIOS
Toshiba Windows Vista 32 bit 5, 40 - WIN World Wide
Update the BIOS
Toshiba OS independent 2, 00 - WIN World Wide
In 'other info' page on first bios there is a warning that this version is only for windows vista, and on the second page 'other info' he warns, that this version is not compatible for notebook computers equipped with Windows Vista.
My first question is what this means? If I have OS Toshiba idependent 2.0 BIOS will not install Vista?
My second and more important question is what version of bios should I install if I now use WINDOWS 7 32 bit?
> My first question is what this means? If I have OS Toshiba idependent 2.0 BIOS will not install Vista?
You should be able to install Vista using BISO 2.0 but maybe your laptop will generate some questions
So you need to update the BIOS to 5, 40 - WIN version if you want to use Vista OS.
If you want to use Win 7 on your laptop then you must first install the Win 7 OS and then you should check out how Windows 7 is running
I need an update of the BIOS not corrupted for a Satellite M40 PSM40 ATI chipset.
Windows XP based wife M40 was a behavior more oddly for some time. Just weird crashes, does not software, etc. Seems to pass all the diagnostics, all OS/applications software is patched the current versions and analysis we all antivirus programs up-to-date and clean.
So, I thought I'd try updating the BIOS and other related stuff. It was about two months ago... When I discovered I couldn't download this shit, or anything else, on the Toshiba site. Despite calls telephone etc. told me ' just keep trying... and try... and so, you get the picture!
Then last weekend I tried downloading one of my Windows 2000/IE6 based PC and was surprised to find that they worked. I had previously used my Vista Home Premium 32/IE7 based PC, which I think was the source of my misery for so long to download...
Anyway... tried unpacking the BIOS tonight only to be told that he is corrupt or not a zip file. Tried to download again, same results. Have you tried unpacking on three different PC - XP, Vista, and Windows 2000, all with the same result.
See you soon
I can't believe that I downloaded the BIOS for the M40 (1.70) and I was able to unpack this package, so I guess that something was wrong during the download process.
I think you know what could be my advice ;) try again
Just tried to update the BIOS on my Equium A210, everything went well until the closing and restarting (which failed).
He left me with a black screen and an orange to power lights, no back to zero and I only can we get rid of the orange light if I remove the battery.
OK, what I'm doing now?... is this repairable?
See you soon
> OK, what do I do now?... is this repairable?
Yes and no.
You can't fix this, but the ASP technician can do that.
Therefore, you will need to contact the ASP in your country, to solve this
The technician would be able to Flash the ROM module and I think this should help you.
Indicated by the TEMPRO software that came with my laptop L505 (1.5 months) I've updated the BIOS version but to halfway the process order and fan running at high speed and nothing more. After an hour, the only option that had left me was to unplug the power and remove the battery. The laptop does not now anthing and refuses to start. I guess that the BIOS should be reset.
Who can advise me what to do?
Oh, that s not good news, Buddy :(
I think you have only the possibility at the moment and it's authorized service provider. Technicians may try to reflash the ROM module but if all goes well it s not completely destroyed now.
If you n t know where is the nearest ASP you can search on the Toshiba site for them. Call them and they will tell you what to do now.
Good luck! :)
during BIOS update my laptop freezes, so need to reflash it.
put into service in crisis recovery mode, it's ONE LONG and TWO SHORT SIGNALS.
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?
If failure of the BIOS update, you can expect anything to contact an authorized service provider and ask for help. I assumed that the ROM module must be reflashed and this can be done with special tools if you need professional help.
In your case I wouldn t try these BIOS recovery tools, you could destroy the entire module ROM.
So, get in touch with your ASP local and ask for help. I'm sure the guys can help you. :)
I have a Toshiba Satellite Pro A120 and I need to update the bios of a change in cpu cause.
The laptop works very well, but for some reason any with the new processor fan runs always full.
A lot, I searched but found nothing.
The model number is PSAC1E-0QL04CG3 of ideas where I can find the bios?
THX in advance,
First of all: update BIOS doesn t help you.
Why do you think that BIOS update should help reduce the activity of fan?
I guess that your new processor is faster. Right?
So it offers more performance and this leads to higher heat dissipation... so finally the CPU must be cooled and this can be done only if the cooling module would turn faster you agree with me?
By the way: the update of the BIOS is on the page of the Toshiba UE driver. Since the satellite Pro A120 is very old series, you will need to search for drivers in area Archive (Type of product-> Archive)
found this forum and really hoping that he can help me!
I bought a satellite Pro P300-1AY two years ago, it cost me £900 nr so I thought it would be worthy of a purchase.
A year ago the USBs stopped working, I do it every working solution I could think of anything will do, finally gave up and learned to live without USBs!
However, a few weeks ago, the laptop at the start stop, I didn't get was the black screen. Probably a video problem I did all the memory check hard drive everything else, however, it was only an intermittent problem, I found if I he tilted on the side she would begin, another thing to live with!
But two days ago, I heard that if I've updated the BIOS, it could solve all my problems. so I went to the Toshiba site, found the BIOS updated and downloaded, but to halfway through the installation, the laptop froze and I couldn't t he put it off and had to take the battery out to turn it off!
And ve you may have guessed, he's now won t start. Even its worst, LED lights, and if I put a disc in the cd I can hear it whirring, but that s it.
Is - this irreparable? I ve heard of priming of the cd with the original BIOS with a combination of keys or I'm hoping against hope?
Ty for your time in reading :)
> Is it irretrievably? I ve heard of priming of the cd with the original BIOS with a combination of keys or I'm hoping against hope?
Well, usually the BIOS could once again be reflashed, but you would need a traditional version of the BIOS update.
This version is available for Toshiba FSA.
So you will need to get in touch with a local ASP technician that could reflash the Rom BIOS module.
Eventually, after this update the specifications would be stable.
I recently installed Windows 7 on Toshiba Satellite A110 (PSAB0).
The version of the system BIOS is v1.30
I want to Flash the BIOS for you last version v2.0.
This version is released in January 2009, before the introduction of Windows 7.
There are two versions of the BIOS download, one "for Vista only' and one 'OS independent.
I think I have to go to the operating system independent.
Link: [update BIOS | http://www.toshiba.nl/innovation/download_driver_details.jsp?service=EN&selCategory = 8 & selFamily = 192 & selSeries = 236 & selProduct = 661 & STAS hortMod = 478 & language = 1 = 12 & selOS & selType = 4 & yearupload = & monthupload = & dayupload = & we eDate = null & mode = allMachines & search = & action = search & macId = & country = 24 & selectedLanguage = 12 & type = 4 & page = 1 & ID = 66230 & DISO =-1 & driverLanguage = 42]
Independent of the OS has warning: + "this Bios is NOT compatible for notebook computers equipped with Windows Vista!" + "
So here's my question: this BIOS version is compatible with Windows 7?
Thank you very much!!
I think that this BIOS (v2.0) is not released for Windows 7 and that it has also not been tested with Windows 7. This BIOS has published 21.01.2009 and Windows 7 was released on July 22, 2009. However, on the other hand it s not mentioned that this BIOS is not compatible with Win 7.
But the fact is that only Windows 7 doesn't is NOT supported on this laptop.
Windows 7 drivers are not out on Sat A110, but this does not mean that you couldn't install Win 7 on this device. Of course, you can install the Win 7 system, but Toshiba does not provide any Win 7 software for this series.
Back to BIOS update:
In your case I would try not to update the BIOS if the laptop works properly.
Why? Because the update of the BIOS is still a technique sensitive and you could damage it the motherboard if something goes wrong during the update of the BIOS.
I desperately need help with update my BIOS on Satellite A665 that my battery won't charge and the site said to me updated the BIOS, but it is not letting me update battery is less than 10%.
Please someone help me because I have no way to use the laptop without power still present.
Can you charge the battery when the laptop is turned off? Usually battery LED should show you white and orange color to the loading process if the battery is fully charged. And then start the computer and update the BIOS.
Try to update the BIOS on the pre-installed Windows version?
I have a Satellite Pro A60, trying to install XP pro but says he needs the BIOS update, downloaded the new update, unzipped and that one file, will not start until no bootable files.
There is currently no OS on the laptop, I understand that I need an ISO file but where is she... !...
Why you need to update the BIOS?
I doubt that XP installation says that you need to update.
Normally the update of the BIOS is a bit risky and must be that if she of really necessary. In addition the update of the BIOS can only be done from Windows. There is no DOS version, they available only authorized for service providers.
I want to update the bios on a Satellite M60
the problem is that I can't access either on my hard drive it still reboot
So, first I want to try to update my Bios but as I can't work with windos XP I need to do it with a Dos command.
is there any solution for this?
Thank you very much
and why you want to update the BIOS?
Even if the BIOS is not updated, the laptop should work well and should start the Windows operating system.
This means that the problem with your laptop is unrelated to the old version of the BIOS.
Have you tried to check the HARD drive or to reinstall Win XP?
I recently buy a Satellite Pro P200 running Windows Vista Business. Yesterday, I updated the BIOS to the version 1.50 supplied with the machine to 1.80 available on the Toshiba site. I double checked that I was using BIOS correct update for the Pro P200 Satellitel running Vista.
After updating the BIOS, I have now two problems:
1. whenever I start and join the office, I get an error message "record of Vista has stopped working". This problem has been identified as toshibavistaregistration.exe here: [link: http://forums.computers.toshiba-europe.com/forums/thread.jspa?messageID=99805]
2 Control Panel > system now shows the processor and the memory (RAM) as "not available". Execution of the diagnostic PC Toshoba tool and looking at basic information show also no information on the memory (RAM) Although the processor information here. There may be pieces others missing too under the eyes of list shorter than before the update of the BIOS.
Basically, I want to get everything working again as it should, but cannot find any information on these issues.
After further review, it appears that the update of the BIOS is not the cause of the problems.
Immediately after updating the BIOS, I had a major system crash. It turns out that this is what has caused problems.
After a system restore to a point before the update of the BIOS and the major system crash, now everything is working again with BIOS version 1.8 in place.
I have the problem that my laptop does not start 9 of 10 times with the message: * block 1 BIOS is damaged, call your service man.
I want to update BIOS but for the Satellite Pro 6000 I can only find an update the BIOS from Windows. But my laptop does not start! Rarely the machine starts, but when I try to update the BIOS, I get the message that I already have the latest version of the BIOS
* Is there a BIOS update file that is a BIOS floppy? (for example the Satellite Pro 6100 has 2 BIOS files, 1 Windows and 1 making a floppy disk)
* Is it possible to update the BIOS with the same version of Windows?
Or perhaps there is another solution for this problem? Has no need to update my BIOS?
I agree with Luke.
The rom Bios module seems to be damage.
Either it must be replaced or flashed again.
But you won't be able to do that! The update of the Bios on the Toshiba page focuses on winning and you will not be able to update if the windows are not running.
You last chance is an ASP that could check the BIOS ROM.
As I said, most high, maybe new reflash module Rom help but cela can be answered simply by an ASP technician who checked this.
