In this case, you will need to contact a local ASP.
The ASP technician will be able to refresh the BIOS with crisis BIOS disk.
You can do this because this drives and trad-BIOS update is available only for the technicians of the ASP only :(

    Thank you much in advance. I would appreciate your contribution.


    I googled around and found many forums where people discuss about this, and it probably has something to do with the graphics card.
    Maybe you should back up all your important data and install the operating system using recovery disc HARD (F8) option. Test a few days without having to install additional software.

    If the problem recurs, maybe you should contact the nearest Toshiba service provider and ask for help.

  • Touchpad no longer works after update BIOS on Satellite A500-1GL

    Hello world

    I just bought my laptop Satellite A500-1GL today. I started at the top and plays a bit (nothing serious). The touchpad worked very well at the moment.

    Then I discovered this tool to update the material and the update of the BIOS that worked without any problems. After I restarted the laptop, BIOS, loaded the default values of the installation and recorded.
    After that Windows 7 (x 64) started the touchpad no longer works...

    I downloaded the driver here and installed again once, still does not. I went into the BIOS, disabled the touchpad (I thought that maybe it's a bug...) and started again. It still does not...

    I enabled it again in the BIOS, tried to push the function + F9, but it still does not... Finally, I used the recovery and installed a Windows 7 costs.
    But unfortunately it still doesn't.

    Now, I'm out of ideas, can anyone help?
    Is there a chance to get the older version of BIOS to downgrade it?

    Thanks in advance ;)


    It seems strange that after update Bios touchpad no longer works.

    > Is there a chance to get the older version of BIOS to downgrade it?

    To be honest, I don't know where to find. In any case, do a search on Google. Perhaps, other users of the forum can give you a link to download.
    The downgrade of the Bios is riskier upgrade procedure. So, be careful the next time...
    Advice for the future; Do not touch the running system.

    Good luck!

  • Satellite A500-134 - recovery partition is empty

    I have a satellite A500-134, shows drive partition recovery that it is 100% free and drive HARD recovery folder appears in the D drive (the laptop comes with 2 visible partitions C and D with 232 GB each). I found the recovery disk partition when I was looking at disk management in windows.

    So this means I can delete the recovery disc that nothing seems to be there?


    Why you really want to remove the Windows RE partition?
    This Windows partition saves files to restore the computer, or to solve problems.

  • L50D-B - reset of the Bios password satellite

    Model: Satellite L50D-B-17J
    Serial number: YE031145C

    So, one of my cousins has managed to put a BIOS password on his cell phone and then forgot the password. Now, I was invited to see if I can fix it.

    First of all: this notebook, while relatively new, is essentially fixed or trash, she already has a new. I already opened it upward, so the warranty has technically been canceled already. All this means it does not matter too much if he breaks in the process of fixing. They say that they have contacted support and not really gotten an idea clear of what to actually do, and I'd rather not have to worry about support (the Support System site is not even working for me right now).

    Long story short:
    Is it possible to reset the BIOS password on this model? I understand that it is possible on many laptops to do by removing the CMOS battery. Now, this model does not have a (I opened it and found no one). Instead, I understand that the newer models may have a circuit that can be shorted to possibly reset the BIOS? Is this correct, and if so, what is it?

    Once more, the laptop is practically acquired anyway, so if possible, I'd take the chance to do it myself, if it's at all possible.

    Well, the circuits in question would be JCMOS1 riders normally located under the RAM. Bridge them while the power is turned off the first. If it does not then on the screen by removing the battery and drive, press and hold power for 10-15 seconds, then hold down Fn + ESC, holding down it to the bottom of the plug in the power lead and switch on the device. When the fan starts release Fn + ESC. If you see a post screen then bridge JCMOS1 jumper then and that should reset the BIOS. Unplug the unit and hold down the power button for 1 minute and then plug it back again. It should start up with asking to specify a password. If you could not to post, then refer to the manual to see what it flashes the procedure. The buttons used for flashing procedure will be the same to make this post. Only fill the JCMOS1 jumper while the machine is running if you see the post screen, no other time. An easy way to bridge them would be to use a paperclip and bend it on and use the ends of it.

  • The update of the BIOS for Satellite Pro M70 does support TPM?


    There was an update of the bios that is specially designed for Vista... = bios-vista - on the Toshiba site...

    Although my Satellite Pro M70-113 did not support the default TPM module (BIOS verson 1.1, I always have this), is it possible that this update includes the TPM secure to enable bitlocker on vista?

    Can someone check and confirm please... :)

    And secondly, is configuration BIOS update for Windows utility saves the current state of the BIOS in some external as backup media, while if it happens with the process of update... the previous version can be restored in return?

    And a BIOS may be downgraded?

    Thank you.


    (1.) I m not 100% sure but I think the new BIOS for the M70 does not support the TPM secure. I read somewhere that all BIOS versions that support TPM on Toshiba laptops cannot be updated by a common user, but the user must contact the authorized Toshiba service provider for these updates.
    That's why I think that Toshiba would not any BIOPS version by download issue if this BIOS would support the TPM.

    2.) now something about the second question:
    The new BIOS version replaces the old BIOS and BIOS States and to my knowledge it of not possible to save the settings for a backup more later.
    Generally, you must be careful with any update of the BIOS. Bad BIOS or bad update procedure may damage the jury!
