In your case only the ASP will be able to help you!
A few reasons your BIOS update failed and the module ROM was not flashed properly

Ask your ASP for help.

Good luck

  • Problems of updating BIOS on Satellite L40 - 15G

    Good afternoon.

    I have Toshiba Satellite L40 - 15G and I want to put 4 GB of ram (2 x 2).
    It works with 3 GB but with 4 GB it just does not start - gives me a blue screen.

    I read on the internet and discovered that I have to update my BIOS (my version curent is 1.60).
    I have vista 32 bit. I also tried to do the update via the site of toshiba, but without success.
    I am running the .exe file, but when I restart the computer I have the same version.

    What should I do?

    In the hope of a response.


    I think you are using an incorrect BIOS.
    Satellite L40 - 15 G seems to belong to the series of PSL48E

    Check again!

    Toshiba Europe page provides a BIOS 2, 00-VICTORY for Vista and WIN-5, 50 for Win XP

    Regarding the upgrade of memory:
    I don't know if your laptop would be m supports 4 GB of RAM. Is that there are different models of L40 and some models supports only 2 GB of RAM!

    Your L40 - 15 G seems to use the Mobile Intel GL960 Express Chipset...
    Check out the details on the Intel page which RAM max can be managed by the Intel GL960 Express Chipset.

  • Question about updating Bios on Satellite L40

    Hello everyone!
    Can I upgrade the bios on my laptop, the Bios v. 2-20-v. 5 - 10?

    In the instructions, it is written:
    This Bios is only compatible for laptop computers equipped with Windows XP!
    And this Bios is only for models with Modelnumber PSL48x, PSL49x, PSL4Bx or PSL4Cx

    Two reasons:
    1. I use XP operating system.
    2. I have the laptop in the L4 series *.


    I think the description of BIOS says it all;
    BIOS is only for the models with the model number PSL48x, PSL49x, PSL4Bx, or PSL4Cx

    This means that if your laptop * not * belong to one of these serial number, then you can not use the BIOS!
    The incorrect BIOS may damage the module motherboards ROM!

  • Satellite L40 - 17Q - Windows XP says that there is no HARD drive


    I want to install XP, but it is said that there is no HARD drive. Already tried nLite, but no result. I have Satellite L40 - 17Q and I'm under Win. 7.
    What can I do?

    Thank you


    What SATA driver you have integrated with nLite? If Windows XP cannot always find a disk of t means that you used the wrong driver. The correct driver can be downloaded from the official website of Toshiba and you need the Intel Storage Manager.

    If you have downloaded the correct driver, follow the instructions here and make sure that your version of XP SP3:

    The BIOS you want supports the Vista 32 bit and not 64-bit update. Therefore, it doesn t work!

  • Update BIOS on Satellite A300

    I want to update the version of the Bios for laptop Toshiba satellite A300 PSAGCE-09800WCE
    Current Version 1.90 and 2.20 version is available
    I just installed Ubuntu LTS OS 14.04
    Is it possible to upgrade the BIOS to version 2.20?

    Message was edited: assignment has been translated


    Toshiba offers updates BIOS to WIN. This means that the BIOS update can be done under Windows operating system only. You can't do this if you use Linux.

    Is there a reason to update BIOS? I mean, if everything is OK you must not update BIOS to the latest version.

  • Can't find an updated BIOS for Satellite A30

    Hi friends.
    I'm not found Toshiba A30-203 a new BIOS update.
    I want to install windows vista but this sccren error.
    Error message:
    "A computer has been detected and windows has shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

    If this is the first time you2ve seen this Stop error screen restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:

    The BIOS in this system is not fully ACPI-compatible. Please contact your system provider for an updated BIOS. »

    to apologize for my bad English.


    It seems that the Satellite A30 series is a series that was shipped with the BIOS to no support for Vista.
    I think that it should be possible to install Vista after a update of the BIOS.

    But know that you will ask for the new version of the BIOS. Am I wrong? ;)

    Well, on the page of the Toshiba BIOS, you should find different versions of BIOS.
    It is very important that you check the more info option you will resume the BIOS updated. You will find information on the compatibility of the BIOS (not every version is compatible with all units).

    But as you know that Vista is not official on the market. As I remember, it should be possible to buy the operating system in January 2007.
    I think Toshiba will present a new version of BIOS for Vista in next time. So I hope ;)

  • Re: 1 GB of RAM / update BIOS for Satellite 1110


    I ordered 2 x 512 MB of RAM at CompuRAM. According to their information 1 GB is possible for this model. According to the user manual only 512 MB is possible. As normally CompuRAM information is right (maybe necessary BIOS update), I tried.

    But it does not work. I can only use 1 x 512 MB.

    Does anyone have information on RAM update for Toshiba Satellite 1110 (model PS111E-003DN-GR/S1110-Z16)?
    Could help update the BIOS?
    How to find the update of the BIOS in the Toshiba homepage (model 1110 does not exist)?

    For any help thanks!



    I found the info that this notebook can handle with 512 MB max.
    Sorry, but the BIOS update is unable to help.
