    Hello.
    Find it me difficult to update the BIOS 1.90 because I got the message that I had permission to run the update.

    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?

  • Satellite C660-13R - BIOS update problem

    Hi all

    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.

    Possible solution?
    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

    Thank you and I hope you can help me...

    Hello

    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 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

    "Error".
    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.
    [EngineeringErrorDisable]
    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.

    Hello

    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.

  • Satellite 1410-604-BIOS update > update BIOS Incorrect in the web?

    Hi there again!

    Now with a new and strange issue.

    We all know that tell old... "If it does not break, don't fix it." And if you put in more computer terms, "especially if it's a BIOS.

    Yes, we all know that the BIOS is something quite dellitate to manage. For some reason, we normally feel as if we manage something like nitroglycerine, or radioactive products. And it's because we all know who is put at risk at the moment: our (or sometimes other) computer, the whole system could end up as dead as some pieces of metal, plastic and son.

    Well. I passed through all of this, more than 10 times in my life, and only once, it went wrong. But since this old motherboard was already dead, it was not important. But I've always been EXTREMELY care. Allways cross checked everything before you do anything, allways has a backup and a way to allways and restore that backup... I did COMPAQ systems, which have been prepared in this way. A BIOS update was about about a disc, turn on the PC with the disk in the floppy drive and wait. And if you don't like the results, you just click on 'back to a previus BIOS' and that was it... very nice. And easy.

    A few days ago a friend gave me a Toshiba Satellite 1410 604 to solve some problems that have been her crazy. After you remove a Norton Internet Security has expired, install avast and scan, I found more than a hundred of files infected with a variety of viruses, malware, trojans, and everything you could imagine. Avast all removed, but the rest of the operating system was so unstable that we decide to format it and install from scratch.

    I asked for the restore disks, which obviously it failed because they were lost in one of his trips. After that we had confirmation of Toshiba representatives there is no disk recovery available for this model, because it is too old, we decided to install from scratch like any other normal PC and resigned to losing some of the utilities accompanying that CD and are not available for download on the Web site.

    I downloaded all the software available for this model, including two updates to the BIOS. (In reality an update, but in two versions: Windows and traditional) and prepared a CD with all the drivers and programs as if it were a new system installation. And everything was fine, no problems at all. Until we arrived at the wireless LAN card, but that's another problem is already solved (the mini PCI card for the WLAN does not support the encriptación WEP or WAP, and it is not possible to connect to any LAN encripted wireless).

    At this point, and when I started setting up and activation of peripheral PCMCIA and USB devices (this computer only supports USB 1.1, 2.0 not) I discovered this text from Toshiba Web site:

    "This Bios update adds functionality to your system.
    (BIOS stands for Basic Input and Output System. This program is stored in a chip memory dead on the motherboard.
    When the computer comes on, the BIOS is launched to perform various functions to start.)

    For more detailed updated information, please refer to Information update BIOS Toshiba"

    Quite specific. Isn't?)

    According to the information in this Web site, the available BIOS fits the following models:

    "Satellite 2410 414, Satellite 1410, Satellite 1410 - 654S, Satellite 1410 814, Satellite 2410-303, Satellite 2410-304 s, Satellite 1410 354, 2410-601 Satellite, Satellite 1410-401, {color: #ff0000} * Satellite 1410 604 * {color}, Satellite 2410-404, Satellite 1410-301, Satellite 1410-304, Satellite 2410 S403, Satellite Pro 2100, Satellite 1410 S203, Satellite 2410-304, Satellite 1410 554, Satellite 1410 S102, Satellite 1410 - 354F, Satellite 2410 703, Satellite 1410-303, Satellite 2410 - S203, Satellite 1410-801, Satellite 2410 603, Satellite 1410-902.

    Yes... it's here!

    Now when you go into the "Toshiba BIOS update information", you get:

    "Ref. FAQ: TRO0000000b07.

    A BIOS update is a {color: #ff0000} * operation is relatively simple and can be done by computer more competent users * {color}. All BIOS updates can be obtained from "BIOS update" Section download click here...

    Note: the BIOS files are specific machine the correct BIOS for your machine should be used. »

    Please note that Toshiba does not disencourage BIOS manipulation, on the contrary: they even encourage people to do. It is not badly needed, but at the same time that they encourage people to 'play' with such a delicate question, at the end of this page, in small letters, they say:

    "Toshiba provides this information"as is"{color: #ff0000} * without warranty of any kind * {color}, explicit or implied, including, but not limited to, the implied warranties of quality market or adequacy has a specific use." Toshiba shall not be liable to the topicality, accuracy, completeness or quality of the information provided. {color: #ff0000} * Toshiba is not responsible for damage caused by the use of any information provided, including incomplete or incorrect information * {color}. »

    This should trigger yellow alarms in our minds.

    + "Human error is inherent in man, and it is not possible to eradicate. It will be displayed always, sooner or later"(Prof. James Reason). +

    And finally, I made the mistake. Although I have read this warning, I remembered all these successful BIOS update with COMPAQ and relied for Toshiba. This update was available there, and Toshiba told me that it was for this computer. Great!

    So finally, I disconnected all devices (USB), removed the PCMCIA (WLAN), plugged the battery charger to avoid any possible battery problem, restarted windows, and then Windows started the update (windows version, such as recommended by Toshiba). This drug looked very nice, nothing different from what I usually see on these old COMPAQs.

    As reported by the update program, the system would restart. And in fact he did.

    Windows normally closed (a little faster than normal, but without mistakes, and since there is no other programs that most - even the antivirus not working - no), the computer turned off, all lights (normal) offshore, and then again on...

    {color: #0000ff} * BEEEEEEEEEEEEP... BEEEP... ... BEEEEP * {color}

    OMG! I never movement something SO bad. 3-1-1!

    And now... What a 3-1-1 is here? Award BIOS would mean no card graphics or video deffective card, but it is not true, because it worked 20 seconds ago. There are BIOS.

    He never came again to life. He's still 3-1-1 beep.

    But now comes the investigation on the human factors involved in this accident.

    I found I committed the following errors:

    * (1) * rely in the constructor, even if they have WRITTEN their information may be incorrect or incomplete. (BAD if I was a detective QA & QC).

    * (2) * I cross checked deep enough (until it was already too late).

    * (3) * I haven't looked above for how to make a backup of the BIOS to restore must anything deceive you.

    * (4) * let Toshiba lead me to a path that I didn't walk, just because of their supply of 'increased functionality.

    * (5) * Beleave in Toshiba when they said "relatively simple operation and can be performed by the most competent computer users"... they never said it is infallible. "."

    Then I began the most interesting part of the investigation.

    {color: #0000ff} * "what went wrong?" * {color}

    Obviously, the update of the BIOS has not somewhere, somewhere. And I wanted to know what and where.

    First thing, I discovered that there is another Toshiba search engine called "askiris" ([http://askiris.toshiba.com]) and I looked to see if, for any chance I could get the old BIOS 1.20 version which was installed at the origin of this machine.

    And I found something... VERY interesting:

    GOOD! Or not?

    Let's take a look:

    First thing I did was download all four files.

    Then I took the same version that made the accident: 1.40

    I unzipped the file, which I found:

    And I got my first surprise here: there is a {color: #ff0000} * README. TXT * {color} that was not present in the file that I downloaded earlier from the repository of drivers.

    So I went the readme.txt and I found this:

    So I took the other file, the update of BIOS_Win, and I discovered that the name of the file is:

    * {color: #ff0000} they have two 20 files and 1 046 461 bytes. I asumed that they are the SAME two folder {color} *.

    And the readme file does not list the model 1410-604 in its readme file, so I can't explain it except as a Toshiba error. * {color: #ff0000} they put an incorrect BIOS on their website and has proposed updating and somehow lead to such mistakes. {color} *.

    (Except in the case that one of these models is a name that is different from the model 1410-604, and if that's the case... now I don't know why this BIOS do not work with this computer).

    The worst thing is that neither the other files (V1.10, 1.20 and 1.30) lists the 1410-604, apparently so no solution possible workaround for this problem. I need an original v1.20 to the CMOS, and Toshiba seems to have. They offered me to solve the problem, leaving the laptop to an ASP, and pay only € 95 for the work and about € 280 for a motherboard replacement, I will get it resolved. But they offer no guarantees of their possibilities because is a model "too old" and "abandoned" and "unsupported"...

    In other words, they said 'you don't have to bother with it, just go and buy a new' (something of quite out of my reach in this time of crisis): P

    Thanks for reading so far.

    Now, what I need is to get ideas on a work around for this, my ideas are:

    (1) the CMOS has some startup that works (it allows a roll-back if you have the appropriate file). So I need a good BIOS to burn in the CMOS memory, the SAME SAME model (a backup BIOS) but the backup should be sufficient for the burning program (CHGBIOSA.COM).

    (2) it is always possible that the BIOS might be OK, but the CMOS data has been corrupted somehow. If so, the CMOS of compensation could solve problem. But I wasn't able to find a clear cmos from the outside button, and after disasembling I took battery, with no good result. I try to leave the MOBO without battery for a period more long (I left it about 20 seconds) just in case where 20 seconds are not all capacitors for well pass zero values. I don't have a lot of hope in this point.

    (3) try to get a REAL good update from Toshiba. I contacted technical support several times, and I was able to verify that they are only - phone operators, with a script in front of them, and when the problem is going - out of reach, they fall in the same response: "you must go to an ASP. I still have a faint hope to find someone who really knows a little and could illuminate with a good BIOS in this disc.

    (4) as far as I could find, this BIOS is not any BIOS-manufacturer known. It seems that it has been developed by Toshiba (own brand), so the Phoenix crisis recovery disk won't be of any help here. As well as any other BIOS recovery tool not designed for Toshiba BIOS. But I'm open to all ideas, which could be put to the test more or less safely. (Remember that the 'BIOS-BOOT-PART' feature still works, I don't want to lose that possibility alone of redemption).

    Wwwaaaaoooowww... what a falks long post! Sorry about that!

    Forgive me, but I wanted to be really clear.

    Someone give some tips or advice will be greatly appreciated.

    Please don't say that I shouldn't be doing... I already know that. I already did some research and found my mistakes, not to repeat them. Now, I need to spend, to move and to try to solve this problem, or at least learn to solve similar things. As much as possible.

    Thank you once again, in advance, and sorry again.

    Modified subject to beter reflect what the problem is (apparently erroneous file BIOS in Toshiba Download Center).

    Hi Fenix,

    Wow... He tooked a lot of time to read your post...

    Maybe I can help you.

    The Bios in the website is the right one. If you have downloaded the right version of the Bios.

    Toshiba America, which has most of the time the Askiris you used isn't accurate models for Toshiba Europe.
    This should be the reason, why does not the readme file contain the European model.

    I'll try to do an update of the fresh Bios using the update of the traditional Bios.

    Copy the files on the disk, put it in the floppy drive, press and hold power on the notebook tab.
    After that the laptop is off, press on and hold the key on the left side of space power on the laptop new bar and wait until it turns off again.

    If your laptop does not power perhaps the most, the RAM is default?

    Therefore, if the use of the traditional Bios or change memory doesn't help, and your laptop is still dead you should go to a SPA, but it will cost money.

    I now have my fourth Toshiba laptop and I had never problems with the Bios updates.

    The 1410 is very old I think, so before you go to a SPA, I'd buy a new ;)

    Best regards

  • Satellite P20-801 BIOS update

    Hi all

    I have a question about updating the bios on my Satellite. I got it off ebay a few months back, reinstalled the OS and now try to update the drivers, bios, firmware dvd - rom etc.

    I tried to download the update of the bios for my laptop (PSP26E-02V79EN) and according to the toshiba site, the latest available bios is version 1.10. It is very strange, as the bios I have installed is version 1.4. It's what the real Phoenix bios and the Toshiba Diagnostic tool says. How can this be?

    Also, does anyone know if it is possible to reflash the bios with the original bios Toshiba, rather than the one Phoenix? If so, could you please tell me how?

    Thank you very much

    Hello

    I have P20 over two years, and I've never updated the BIOS so far. The device works without problem. It is not necessary to install the new BIOS just if you find that some update is available.

    You are right about the BIOS on P20. This is Phoenix one. As far as I know, it can not be exchanged with Toshiba one. If you want more information about this, contact the customer Service of your country partner.

    Please check the last BIOS update on http://www.toshiba-tro.de/subpage/bios.html

  • Satellite L40 - 13G: Bios update is not on Vista SP1

    I have a Satellite L40 13 G and the latest Bios update refuse to update.

    I'm trying to update my BIOS because the laptop freezes randomly in time and I have problems of "graphic design" where the lag games where there is no form of explosion such as gunshots or a bomb.

    There are no instructions, not in the exe and certainly not on the screen. If I didn't know how Flash a BIOS I would certainly not choose the .bin BIOS file in the directory between all DLL files.

    Thank you
    Yahweh.

    Hello Jako

    Can you please tell me what your problem is now? What questions are you writing about?
    If I understand you well you have correctly updated the BIOS. Am I right about that?

    And what now? What do you mean?

  • Satellite L40 - 14Y Bios Update with HARD drive empty

    I need to update the Bios of my Satellite L40 - 14Y / PSL48E-01F01UGR of Version 1.60 to 5.50 (for Windows XP). The HARD drive is _ * authorized/empty * _.

    My problem: the 'solution' as given

    [Http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com/innovation/faq.jsp?z=234&service=EU&from=faq_selection&CFID=B IOS & FID = TRO0000000b07]

    is unreasonable/erraneous. The instructions provided in this site for the "traditional update: BIOS is updated using a floppy ' lead 'procedure 7" for a Satellite L40.

    7 procedure is however simply: copy the 5 files, such as listed in the respective "bios - 20080617131457.zip" zip file on the disk ("+ extracted the zip file containing the upgrade of the BIOS to a formatted floppy + '). This disk is - of course - _ * bootable * _ and its usage with the error message "NTLDR" not found as shall be provided.

    We know a solution to this problen other than the installation of an operating system for the current object of updating the Bios from an operating system?

    Additional note: the attempt to install the 5.50 Bios by running winflash.exe (which is the single executable in "bios - 20080617131457.zip") failed because it "does not in DOS mode. But he could start with a few other disk started micro operating system, such as, for example, Caldera back. We know something about that? The statement: "run the *.exe extracted to the temporary folder. .... . A BIOS update diskette will be generated"as given for other than blackness L40 laptops means that a * _bootable_ disk is"generated ". Other laptops with the same Bios 5.50 as the L40?

    Hi jetztkommich,

    Don t do so complicated: anything that can be downloaded from the Toshiba site, you will find. If there is that only a basic Windows Update the BIOS, you can run the update of the BIOS under Windows. I think that s easy to understand.

    As Al - Ex worte, you can try the update on a Windows disc packed with bart PE.
