Satellite M45 - logo error bad/missing OSB


I'm having a serious problem with my laptop

When I turn on my computer, the toshiba logo appears with an error message in the upper right corner that says: missing/Bad OSB logo.
And that is, the computer has frozen, I can not even access the bios...

Could plese someone help me?



Hi Kelly,

The logos of the BIOS stand on the CMOS chip on your motherboard, your display will show an error message may indicate that you CMOS chip has developed a fault which needs to be re-flashed the BIOS. If you are unable to get the OS to load after the BIOS screen, you get the BIOS flashed by a Toshiba authorized Service partner.

You may also like to try = pass the screnn LOGO by pressing the ESC key as soon as you pressed the power button. This should show that then it the BIOS load progress.

Kind regards

  • Satellite Pro 4300: error - NTLDR missing

    Hi all

    I have an old Satellite Pro 4360, P3 700 mhz.
    I'm trying to upgrade the Bios to install Ubuntu Linux.

    However, by following the instructions on the download of Toshiba Bios, IE change the boot sequence for the floppy drive with the disc in the drive that contains the update files, I can't update and just got the message:

    NTLDR missing

    Someone help with this?

    Also, when I try to run the live CD, after changing the boot sequence in the CD-ROM, I get no response and the computer continues to boot from the disk with Windows 2000 Pro?

    Someone help with this?


    "NTLDR is missing" usually means that the "NT Loader" of an operating system with the kernel NT or NT-technology cannot start the operating system. (Such system NT could be Win NT, Win XP or Win 200o)

    But it s strange when a drive reports an error message. What was on the disk before? Was the drive some disk before starting? If so, then proceed as follows:

    Format the drive in Windows 2000 with the option to make a disk and copy the files from the BIOS on this subject. Then boot from the disk and update your BIOS. Ususally it should work.

    Please give a few comments if you managed...

  • Satellite L100: Logo Centrino Duo missing

    I bought the Satellite L100 Centrino Duo of China and as all the pilots were in Chinese, so I upgraded the site Web of Toshiba. He had the BIOS update as well... after I have done... the Centrino Duo logo disappeared from the start. Instead of as single Intel appears...

    How can I get that back?


    As far as I know this laptop uses Phoenix BIOS.
    The "quiet boot" option should appear on the fist page 'Hand' BIOS.
    If this option is enabled, the diagnosis is disabled and LOGO should appear.
    But if it's disabled if the diagnosis appears and summary screen is displayed.

    I think you should check this posibility

  • Satellite M45 - Missing/Bad OSB logo at startup

    When I turn on my Satellite M45, everything he says is missing/Bad OSB logo.
    I press ESC and still it does nothing.

    What should be my next step?


    I found this thread.
    CA? s very similar to your question.

    It seems that your CMOS chip where the BIOS is stored has developed a fault.
    In order to solve this problem, the BIOS must be re-flashed

    But BIOS reflash can only happen if you can not access the OS. If you are in an uncomfortable situation and only a Toshiba ASP could help you.

  • Power calibration error - Mat * a UJ - 830 s drive Satellite M45


    I have a problem writing files on my carpet * a writer uj-830 s. My laptop is Satellite M45. When I try to burn a CD or DVD in nore or dla, it gives the power calibration error.

    I'm sick and tired of this!
    Can someone help me please?


    Power calibration error is known to me and revealer of truth he s just doesn't sound right.
    For the most part, this message appears if the lens of the player is unable to calibrate in the right position.

    The goal must always be calibrated before you start read or write the middle.
    If this procedure fails, the drive is not able to manage the CD or DVD and get the power calibration error.

    Frankly, in most cases, the drive needs to be replaced, because AFAIK this dysfunction is not repairable.

    Well, in the best case, you will need to reinstall the system.

    I have a Satellite M45, computer laptop, and for some reason any SD Smart Media system does not work. The Bay is attached to the laptop, it is not an external drive. I insert the chip SD, 1 GB or 512 mb not load disc, it, or show no signs of him being even in the computer.

  • Satellite A100 BIOS update - BAD CHECKSUM

    I've just updated my BIOS to version 6.0 that TOSHIBA said > 26/11/07 "this Bios update adds functionality to your system: Satellite A100 Toshiba 6, 00 - WIN (PSAAN).»

    My original BIOS was 5.9
    My computer works fine A100-33 but when my computer restarts, showed it to the BLACK screen.

    I noticed that it displays BAD CHECKSUM and suugested I select default BIOS but I * ignored this advice * that wanted this new Version of the BIOS.

    What means BAD CHECKSUM and what effects will have on my computer peformance please if any?

    Under the system information that is displayed for my BIOS Version/Date Phoenix Technologies LTD 6.00, 07/12/2007

    Name of the Microsoft OS? ® Windows Vista Home Basic


    Don t worry if the message "bad checksum" will appear only once.

    'Bad checksum' means that the BIOS has been changed, rewritten or settings have been restored by default. Thus, whenever you save your bios settings, bios made a "checksum" to check the next time you start the settings were stored and all goes well. If something is wrong or has been changed, then the checksum stored since the last save a Don t match real new generated checksum.

    So if you make an update of the bios, all your settings will be modified logic - you get an error "Bad Checksum".

    Another reason for such "Bad Checksum" is an empty BIOS stack or a malfunction, so BIOS cannot keep it s settings and you will get every time you start the computer a message "Bad Checksum".

  • Re: Satellite C650D-12J - BOOTMGR is missing

    See previous thread Re: Satellite C650D-12J - recovery of missing HARD disk image
    Posted the: 06-Aug-2011 16:07 in response to: bobmc

    I am back with another problem.
    I ordered a Toshiba Recovery arrived ok.
    I inserted in the drive and follow the instructions.
    Everything is fine but when he got to the F = u = \HDDRecovery\SWImg \ZZImg\11675XSP5_swm copy (5/8)
    He said 0 file copied
    ERROR = copy of splitpart or CRC failed
    Press a key to continue.
    I pressed a button and the screen went white.

    Now when I try to start, I get a message:
    BOOTMGR is missing
    Press Ctrl + Alt + Delete to restart
    whenever I do this, I get the same message.

    Any thoughts on what to do next?

    Check my answer to your first thread:

    BOOTMNG is missing error is displayed because the installation of the OS was not successful.

    Try to boot from the recovery disc once more, perhaps you will be able to install the operating system.
    If this isn't the case, you must check if the HARD drive is OK. For this, you can use a tool called Drive Fitness Test. This s free software which would test the HARD drive.

    If the HARD drive is ok and you still can't install the OS by using the new recovery disc, then it means the recovery disk is defective. In this case, you will need to replace this drive.
