Satellite Pro L300 BIOS update problem
I have a Satellite Pro L300 (PSLBHE).
I downloaded the new bios and started the upgrade file. A window appears and shows the version of the old and new bios (v1.70-> v2.20). All in 1 min. my laptop computer screen turned black but the green light flashed HDD and does not what it is about 15 minutes. After that I pushed the power button and the judgment of the laptop. Now if I push the power button nothing happen just blank (black) screen and HARD drive flashing.
What is the problem? What can I do? Please help me.
It's the BIOS update is finished now. Of course, the BIOS update was interrupted and now of the BIOS chip is damaged.
What can you do now?
Unfortunately not much. What you need is a professional help, so I recommend you contact the closest service Toshiba and ask for help. I'm sorry.
I recently bought a Satellite Pro L300-128 GB specification, that has a Celeron M550 running Windows XP and a construction date of the end of June 2008. I have a problem with the switching on of the machine if it has been turned off for a long period of time.
Basically, if the AC cable is inserted into the computer laptop and plugged in, the green light turns on, but pressing the button it does nothing. By the process of elimination, I have found that, after a short period of time (say 15-30 minutes) if (and only if) the AC cable is then removed from the laptop, it lights up then!
Plug the AC cable, while the laptop is on, do not cut the machine and charge the battery as usual. The battery life seems very good, if a little short (say 1.5 - 1.75 hours when used "constantly").
If the computer is restarted, it lights again very well - if it is turned off and left for a few minutes, once again no problem. But, if she is not with the battery fully charged and left all night - it lights again in the morning.
Now, as a new machine, I'm wondering if the battery needs a long initial load (such as a mobile phone)? Nothing is said about it in the manual. I have not yet checked if the battery down completely himself during the night. I haven't run the battery to the laptop for a long time (say all day) to 'trickle charge '. I don't know if the period from 15 to 30 minutes to get the thing started is once again because the battery is completely discharged during the night (I need to check the BIOS to see if "Wake up we LAN/wireless" is activated)-anyone know how long a fully discharged battery must be charged before that the machine will let you start it?
Under the machine, there are two battery release buttons and it seems loose - I don't know if it's related, but can't see how. Moreover, when the question arose (during the first delivery the laptop), I removed the battery and tried power upwards of food, but nothing to do.
I ran all the software updates (chipset etc) I can find on the download page, the BIOS version is 1.40 (last) of the factory.
Any suggestions would be welcome before I have use the service of repair under warranty for the first time! I don't know if it is related to the fact that the power button seems to be a micro switch rather than a good button/switch in the conventional sense of the term, i.e. you can 'feel' it do something!
Thank you very much
If you have purchased a new laptop, the battery is empty and needs to be charged in the first place.
You can also connect the adapter to the laptop while the battery is empty and the laptop should also lights up properly.
The laptop must also run without the battery and using only the AC adapter.
It should also be possible to put the laptop by pressing the power button for about a second, if this is not possible, a malfunction of the laptop could be possible.
In such cases, it s always advisable to contact the local ASP for a verification of the laptop.
I mean your laptop is under warranty and if something is not wrong with the machine so everything must be replaced free of charge
In my opinion, the laptop must be checked!
I recently bought a Satellite Pro L300 laptop and I have problems with the CD's I created.
Any software I use Nero, Toshiba etc I still get the same problem. The created disc will play on the laptop, but not in my home Hi-Fi, the reader will recognize the disk, how much tracks etc. but does not play. I use discs without brand that worked with my old desktop computer Dell & Sony DVD player.
I can also not less than 10 x using nero burning speed,
I use usually 4 x.
The operating system is Windows XP.
Anyone got any ideas?
I put t know what CD/DVD drive you have but on the Toshiba site for some readers are firmware upgrades available. Maybe you should try this to solve the problem.

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've updated the BIOS on my laptop and something was wrong, just not now a computer screen.
I went to see the Web for Chris Bios recover.
Have over 20 versions, but so far without success.
My biggest problem is: I can't save on floppy disk 2 MB BIOS. All attempts to create a
Flash or SD ended in failure.
The laptop is: Satellite pro U400 PSU45E
Please help me... the laptop reads the floppy in BIOS with little experience (the ones that come with Chris Bios 500Ko - 1000 KB) begins with a normal boot beep signals supposedly provided a definition blocks then baar times short beep and nothing to do...
There must be something... BIOS BACK small size, emulator USB... BIOS to be torn down, so it is possible in charge from USB, SD...
Every idea can be useful!
Thank you very much

Unfortunately if something was wrong during the update of the BIOS, then you won't be able to solve this problem without the help of a technician of the ASP
I hope that the ROM BIOS module is not too bad
In the worst case that the mobo is damage but maybe it s not damaged
However. You must contact a local ASP and must ask for the manipulation of the Fryer!
I have a satellite pro p100 with win xp.
I downloaded the bios-update victory.
something is worng. the laptop was closed and when I try to start it,

Please help me, I write my degree and really need to resolve this problem quickly.
so if your machine does not start then you need to send/bring your machine to the next partner service authorized in your country.

Anyone know if I can upgrade the BIOS of my Satellite Pro u300 from a floppy boot BACK, or another way to do an update without Windows? The downloaded utility seems to work only in Windows, I do not use.
I tried to launch a live Windows CD (BartPE and Ultimate boot CD) but it does not start or shows no graphics.
I have problems with some hardware and hopes that an update of the BIOS.
No, you can not day BACK because Toshiba driver BIOS European page provides only the version of the BIOS win.
For an update of the BIOS BACK you would need an update of the special BIOS that is not published on the page and is available for Toshiba technicians!
I have a satellite pro m30 and I would like to make a bios update. Utility hardware Toshiba says that my bios version is 1.4. The existing updates see 1.2, 1.6, but it says nothing about 1.4.
Should I take 1.6?
It might be possible that the BIOS version 1.4 is the version of BIOS default manufacturer for this model.
In my opinion you should take the 1.6 version because it is the most recent and it may be necessary!
Here is the link: http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com
go to Support & Download - Download BIOS - choose your M30 SP and click for the Description of BIOS for more information!

I also have a satellite M30, and a few weeks ago I had updated my laptop to the BIOS v1.6 latest. I had no problem with the update.
Where did you downloaded your BIOS? and what Productcode your machine? (PSM30E or other)
Hi, I'm using Toshiba Satellite Pro A300 with Windows Vista Home Premium.
Downloaded and run the BIOS update. The installer said that everything was OK with the BIOS flashing.
But when the computer reboots, TEMPRO asking again the BIOS update.
I don't know if the BIOS has been or has not been updated.
How can I handle this:

If you are running the Toshiba HWSetup you can see what version of BIOS you have.
On the Toshiba site, you can check if you have the latest BIOS:

Hi, I just bought a Satellite Pro L40 laptop and im trying to figure out why the bios has no parameter memory.
If I look at the ram using a tool of information system (cpuz or aida320), it shows she doesn't move at the speed of 667 mhz but at 533 mhz.
As you can see from this screenshot the memory runs at the real speed is less than the maximum that the sticks have a rated power.
Its running at 266 mhz (533 mhz ddr) where it should be run at 333 mhz (667 mhz ddr).
I also noticed that with this laptop fan never seems to come, is it possible to mount the fan?
Whenever I have the laptop for more than 30 minutes, it becomes very hot.
> if I look at the ram using a tool of information system (cpuz or aida320) it shows that it does not run at the speed of 667 mhz but at 533 mhz.
What is your FSB?
If the laptop was equipped with memory PC2-5300 modules then they could run at 667 MHz, but only if the FSB would supports 667 MHz! I think is supported by the FSB of 533 Mhz.
So I can't say it s nothing wrong!
> I just bought a Satellite Pro L40 laptop and im trying to figure out why the bios has no parameter memory.
Why do you think a BIOS update would turn the memory settings in the BIOS?
Please don t mix of desktop computers laptops! Laptops cannot be overclocked.
BIOS of laptop computers is not the same thing as a desktop PC BIOS!
> I also noticed that with this computer laptop fan never seems to come, is there a way to turn the fan to the top? Whenever I have the laptop for more than 30 minutes, it becomes very hot.
Have you noticed all automatically turn off downs or any other strange behaviors laptop as freezing OS for example?
If it is then that the laptop runs correctly and doesn't overheat.
Books to support thermal protection which would be closed the laptop automatically to avoid equipment damage
Then lean back man and enjoy your nice toy ;)

Try to update one of my employees with bios 1.50 laptops (C660) and it displays an error message displaying 3 possible causes. Power adapter not connected not (it's) battery is less than 10% (it is not) and the BIOS is updated to the version 1.50. When I tried the update the laptop was running 1.00. So I updated the bios to 1.30 with no problems, but when you try to update to 1.50 it still shows the error.
Any ideas? You will need to get the bios installed as seems to solve problems hitting the phone suffers from.
What operating system is currently installed?
BIOS update it of necessary this value-added package is installed and you run the update as an administrator. Also, make sure that the battery is fully charged.
What is the model number of the C660?
Find it me difficult to update the BIOS 1.90 because I got the message that I had permission to run the update. Of course, I executed the request made by the administrator and try several times to restart Windows (Home prem 64 - bit). The last time when I installed 1.80 BIOS update there was not this sentence. Attach the screen with the message from the application.
Thank you very much.
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?
I have download the proper file, but saves it as tw30170w.rom. How do I run it? Windows does not recognize it.
I would try it with the traditional Biosupdate.
