Update Bios of SSD PCIE optimized

Hi, I would like to know if that optimized pcie x 4 NVMe SSD Bios Update will work on my VN7 - 791 G. It has listed for the VN7 - 792G as well as update the audio drivers Realtek that are not listed for mine (same Realtek audio though) so I see not why there is a conflict. Even with the Synaptics touchpad driver. I think maybe that the Acer update page is not up-to-date on my older Nitro.

I don't see how the Chipset Intel driver would not work (I think) because I am running Haswell not Skylake.

Any help would be appreciated.



It will not work to be short. The checkum will see that the BIOS is not designed for the G 791 and it will not install it.

Go where are you sure that 791G also has support of Nvme?

  • Want DV6-7300ea problem of updating Bios with SSD


    Recently, I swapped my HARD drive to the STRANGE Bay and put an SSD in the startup location.  Everything works fine until it was update the BIOS to the new version F.26.  After having downloaded the update and run the .exe, the computer restarts and the normal blinking screen comes up - everything seems as it should and checks the update. Then, the system reboots and what I see is a black screen with the fan turns. He accomplishes this task for 30 seconds, then stops and goes through the same routine. I left for an hour, but no progress so I removed the battery and swapped the HARD drive in the main Bay. Put running the laptop and it displays the screen "Boot Block update" and continued to work as usual.

    No idea why he won't not on-screen "update Boot Block" with the SSD in as peripheral to start?

    When you start the update of the BIOS ROM file performs a check of the configuration of the laptop. The coding of the met the STRANGE unexpected update and configuration SSD as your laptop went into a loop. When you have returned the laptop on its original config that apparently satisfied with the softpaq update BIOS and completed its task. Now, we know the results of the portable non-standard configurations on the BIOS updates.

    Thanks for posting this has happened and the final result.

  • Z620: need help with the difference ("boot") of ssd pci-e cards and pci-e (BIOS) nand


    I intend to buy a card pci-express ssd for access/faster transfer, and I read the topics concerning the problem of booting from that ssd, but still did not understand much to be honest.

    what I noticed, is that HP620 should work with older (like turbodrive Z), but not the based NAND, new Z turbodrive G2,.

    or only with a few tricks.

    now to my question.

    Some people say, this new nand ssd pci - e cards require a boot uefi bios and a few options, I do not understand.

    as I have a regular bios (not), is it true that you cannot boot from these new ssd expansion slot, or are there tricks like the passage to the AHCI and a few other options in the bios?

    If this is not possible, I'd be limited to regular use SATA ssd, limited to 500 MB/s of bandwidth, right?

    Thanks for any help


    Found this info on the web;

    "There are actually two versions of the player. The original version uses the familiar AHCI Protocol, while a new variant is the NVM Express standard. The model of the AHCI is compatible with a wide range of motherboards and available among a wider selection of suppliers. »

    The version of NVMe is also supposed to be faster, but in reality, it is not much of a difference.

    I think that you need a motherboard with a socket m2 is to see a real difference in speed compared to the old version of AHCI.

    I understand that it is only the most recent Zx40 HP series range that supports readers NVMe but not sure 100%. It would certainly be a challenge trying to get one to work in a series of Zx20 HZ.

  • 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"

    (you can find it here):

    [http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com/innovation/download_drivers_bios.jsp?service=EU], you need to search for:

    Satellite 14xx
    Satellite 1410 604

    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. ', Satellite 1410-313, Satellite 1410-802, Satellite 1410 714, Satellite 2410-354, Satellite 2410 514, Satellite 1410-614, Satellite 1410 704, Satellite 2410 515, Satellite 2410-504, 2410-702 Satellite, Satellite 1410 S103.

    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."

    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:

    3 dirs 9,404,600,320 bytes free

    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:

    'README. CDC TXT 31/01/2003
    Flash BIOS version 1.40 for Satellite 1410
    This BIOS is applicable for the following models:

    Satellite 2410-S203
    Satellite 2410-S204.

    Please note that the model 1410-604 is * NOT * listed.

    I thought ' well, there must be another archive... ". »

    But then I realized a name that seems familiar, that is, in the directory where I unzipped this file 1.40, and the name is:

    {color: #0000ff} * 2410A9V140. EXE * {color}

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

    * {color: #0000ff} 2410A9V140. EXE, {color} * (Ups!)

    So I once again, uncompressed to find:

    Then another issue raised in my mind: what happened to the other file 1.40? What did the other 2410A9V140. EXE are inside?

    * {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.

    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


  • The p300 supports booting from an SSD PCIE NVMe adapter?


    I think I have a samsung 950 pro with an ssd PCIe adapter to start windows 10 on a thinkstation P300 (Machine type 30AG, e3-1281 processor v3 with latest bios-22/06/2016 FBKTC6AUS).

    Will this work?

    THIS MARKET! (Sorry for the caps, but I'm so excited.)

    I have installed the 950 pro in a pcie adapter, put it in the P300, installed the driver Samsung NVMe, initialized and formatted the disc (in the GPT, which is the same as my previous drive C) and then downloaded samsung data migration. I migrated my previous drive C to the new 950 pro, then shutting down my computer. I've detached from the old C drive, rebooted and went into the bios (F1) and I put the pro 950 (under 'other devices') # 1 start order.*

    It starts in windows 10 beautifully, as if she was made to do so; no hiccups, it simply works.

    Although NVMe readers are not officially supported on the P300, Samsung somehow got to work. I strongly suspect that it has to do with the pro Samsung 950 ROM option, which resides in the SSD and not on the computer, which allows you to start.

    * Make sure you just under "other devices" the 950 pro is the only drive listed. I have a data esata drive connected to my computer and the 950 pro as well as my data disk appears under the heading "other devices." at the start, my computer complains that no operating system is found. However, if I turn off my esata drive before starting, the p300 boots perfectly. I just turn on my esata after that I'm on windows.

  • Update BIOS L430 UEFI 2.56 to 2.61 screen black

    Hi guys, been looking around for answers to this, but can not find it more precisely.

    System details:

    Lenovo Thinkpad L430 2466 3F1

    UEFI BIOS 2.56 installed

    120GB SSD installed when I bought (2nd hand but listed as 'new' - do not know how the image of the system has been installed for the SSD)

    I lived a lot of black blinking cursor problem when waking from sleep. This was addressed in 2.57 updated BIOS or UEFI 2.58 I think.

    I then started getting BSOD code 101 errors of clock. I read that was never solved by an update of the BIOS, otherwise faulty hardware. So, I looked in the BIOS update and a stress test.

    [EDIT] I tested the first processor software (Muessnor or a crazy name) of stress and monitor temperature with Speedfan. Temperatures never got above 75 degrees after 20 min of either small or large pieces/jobs/whatever they were. I read that a defective material was usually picked up in the first minutes of the race, but leave recommended it for 2 hours. Then I saw these processors running hot and cooling inventory systems are not too hot, so do not stress about this configuration test. So I took a compromise to 20 min each. Do all the no errors on the tests of 4-5. [/ EDIT]

    Now is the time to review updates to the BIOS. Lenovo has provided the software with the laptop, so I have updated this program and ran the udpater in VantageTools. Updated itself first of all, she offered me a BIOS update.

    Well, I created a system recovery disk and image of the system including system files and your data first, then closed all processes resembling processes system, disabled self-protection on Avast, shields disabled until the next reboot, process of GUI of Avast that ENDED, then allowed the BIOS update to proceed.

    I left after it restarts on the screen similar to BACK and said BIOS has 999 blocks and started moving dashed lines on the screen, expecting just continue until it has succeeded or failed.

    I came back 15 minutes later to a black screen. No cursor, only led power is green. I have heard no beep, even if I couldn't I was at the other end of the House.

    I read about a user of HP who has had this problem and support. They said to wait a few hours and see if it is finished. Called again, told to wait still. She completed successfully after a few 20hours. If you find that a link more but it is better to try this?

    Then I read about various combinations of keys (e.g., the comment by Ishaan here) to hold everything in startup, but I has not yet turned off.

    What would be more appropriate things for me to do then?

    So, I took the plunge based on this postand turned off. I then turned on, BIOS said worm 2.61 installed and Windows started. I rebooted, pressing F1, the installation program has been entered. Restarted, Windows starts again.

    Mission success, no idea why he gave the blackSOD strangely scary but...

    Problem solved.

  • M92p Tiny - no bootable disc after update BIOS to 9SKT59A (dual boot Linux/Win7) GPT/EFI


    I've updated my Lenovo ThinkCentre m92p tiny A1G 3237 - to the 9SKT59A of the BIOS version.
    I use a SSD OCZ with GRUB2 and Win7/Linux dualboot (UEFI/GPT) without any problem.

    After that the updated BIOS update it was SecureBoot activated and I couldn't start obviously GRUB2.

    Then I disabled SecureBoot and changed the boot order, but when I try to include the SSD with x, it disappears from the list excluded bootable devices but do not appear in the devices included.

    Now, I'm only able to boot using USB key where a grub2 is also installed. I'm sure it's a bug in the BIOS!

    Can anyone else confirm or solved this probem?

    See you soon


    Updated the BIOS to 9sj960usa fixed the problem for me. As I was not able to boot using CD/USB-SSD, I was able to GRUB2 boot Win7 on a USB key and has used the flash .exe file.

  • Startup after update BIOS problems

    I recently updated my Alienware Aurora R4 for Windows 10, that satisfies me, but I noticed that my fans have been reallt strong during startup and shutdown, and I had to reset manually in my Alienware Command Center application which caused irritation, so after minimal research, I saw that one of the proposed fixed has been update BIOS I foolishly thought would be a quick easy thing to try, so I updated the BIOS version A7 to A11 day because I was not aware of the flashing, which I realize now, I should certainly have done. In any case, the update seems to work fine, no freezes or crashes and I just restarted my computer and stop was normal. When he started upward again if, instead of start properly, he showed a 10 windows screen that says: "your computer encountered a problem and needs to restart" with an error that says INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE. When it has rebooted, I went into my BIOS settings and that he made sure that my the first boot device has been "hard drive" (I have two discs SSD, a HARD drive, but they have never caused me problems before and nothing has been fixed when I took out the HARD drive without windows on it). So far, I restarted a bunch of times and tried everything I can think of. Any help would be appreciated! Thank you

    simple tips I gave to a member of the forum the other day (it is possible that the bios update is back your settings to "default"):

    • Check your bios, game sata AHCI controller
    • set the boot device as HDD #1
    • others had the chance in the bios, go to 'legacy boot.
    • remove all external usb devices for now accept keyboard and mouse back.

    Dell/Alienware advice says to disable secure boot...

  • Portege A600: cannot update bios 3.0

    My current bios version is 1.6, the latest is the 3.0
    When you try to update the bios, I receive an INSTALL2 APPCRASH. EXE
    exception code c000005

    I tried to start it in safe mode, but that deer does not help

    Thanks for help


    The istall.exe should not breaks down and you should not update the BIOS in safe mode!
    Windows should be started and should work properly!

    This is a Toshiba FAQ How update BIOS:

    Eventually the error code is related to corrupted windows OS or some tools from Toshiba is missing.
    Using Win XP the common Modules must be installed.
    You are using Vista or Win 7 VAP (value added packaged) must be installed.

  • Portege Z830 - update BIOS


    I want to update my BIOS from version 1.4 to 1.6 (latest)

    When I try to do it (directly with the updated BIOS or via the TOSHIBA Service Station) I got the following error message:
    Error: Preparation of updated failed
    You have not given permission to run the update.

    I am connected with an administrator account and I already try to run it with "run as Administrator"

    I'm not on the toshiba Windows installation because I have my own license of Windows 7 Professional (64 bit).

    Can you help me?

    Thank you very much

    PS: Sorry for my English, it is not my native language

    Question may be stupid, but why do you want to update the BIOS?
    Have you noticed a few problems with your machine?

  • Portege 3410 - how to update BIOS and install XP?

    Hello, I have two questions on Portege 3410.

    First: I can't update the BIOS (current usage, 1.50 there, I want to update to 1.60). Instruction does not work: I connect Teac USB into USB port, turn on the USB - FDD emulation to activate, portable switch with pressed F12, the message «Ready to update BIOS...» "appears, I touch in a hurry, but nothing happened. What's wrong?

    The other: I can't install Windows XP on laptop (it does not start from USB disk or external USB DVD drive).
    How can I install Windows?

    Thank you.


    Just a question: why do you want to update the BIOS? Is this really necessary?
    I ask this question because this update is always somewhat risky and you might damage it ROM module
    In any case, have you tried to load the default settings in the BIOS before you start the update and install XP?

    You can install XP without CD. Therefore, you must copy the folder i386 on the HARD drive from another computer and the boot to the HARD drive files, I think you need a little search with Google to find a workaround for this. You should find enough! ;)

  • Don't recharge Tecra S11-119 - updated BIOS question too!

    My computer is a year. It was quite well, until I noticed that he had ceased to charge the battery. After some googling I found that there could be an update of the BIOS, that I had missed. When you try to install the BIOS update, I get a message saying I need to plug in my computer first (which is always that the dough is not a charge).

    BIOS update program says he wants to be updated as follows:

    BIOS version: current Ver.2.60--> updated Ver.3.20
    THIS Version: Current Ver.1.80--> updated Ver.1.90

    OS: Windows 7
    BIOS file I downloaded: bios-20110714132558

    Is this a known problem with a fix available?


    Are you sure that you have downloaded and used the good version of the BIOS.
    I have read about similar error message and finally the used user isn't compatible BIOS.

    In addition the VAP (value added package) must be installed to update BIOS! In case you, I recommend you to reinstall this tool too.

    But I'm not quite sure if the BIOS update will help you solve the problem of battery m
    Maybe you need to replace the battery

  • Satellite P20 S203: update BIOS after version 1.70

    Hello! I have a Satellite P20 - S203 BIOS is Ver1.70, published on 20/11/2003. I think there pretty outdated now, but there has been no new versions for years and I think that this great computer, despite the old, should be more supported. What I don't understand is why they made an exit for the PSP23E and not for the PSP20E, that make the differences that they should deserve to be updated bios different?

    Does anyone of you know about BIOS versions after 1.70 which allow the laptop to boot from SD cards or removable media? And that the problems of the management of multiple USB devices?
    Thank you


    I use P20 over two years, without any update of the BIOS. If your device works well I recommend you to leave. Boot from the SD card is not possible and update the BIOS will not allow this.

    What problem do you have with the USB devices?

  • HP Pavilion 500 series: updates Bios

    HI I was wondering tonight in my hp support center was a significant update of the Bios I was wondering if I could please get some advice on the question of whether it is a good idea to Bios if there is nothing wrong with the Bios in the first place.  Why should I update the Bios or should I not update the Bios for my hp Desktop.

    Thank you for your time and help

    In general, I agree with redshore.  I'm used to be of the opinion that if everything worked as planned, then leave it alone.  Since I use a HP ENVY laptop with Windows 8.1 one year, I noticed that the HP helper has done several updates that I probably have on my own, especially updates BIOS.  I don't know why there would be many updates to BIOS, so have to asuume engineers tried to fix a problem that had been reported.  As redshore, you always stand the risk of bricking the unit with BIOS update is bad and if you read the forums here, there seems to be more those happening.

    Some units now have a feature where a regime of BIOS recorvery is integrated, a good idea.  You might wise to explore your PC to see if the model you have this feature for a while where you might need.

  • Question about updating BIOS for my Satellite M40

    So, my laptop does not start, but works recovery procedure. Support suggested me to update my Bios.
    OK, given that the last time, it was easy.

    I downloaded the newsest version vor my Satellite M40 (PSM40) (1, 70 - WIN<= i="" have="" an="" ati="" grafics="" card)="" and="" extracted="" the="" bios-20070709161345.zip="">
    But there was a surprise:
    Instead of getting the old data structure, as written in the FAQ update Bios
    1 extract the zip file containing the BIOS upgrade to a temporary folder.
    2. in the folder temporary three subfolders will be generated. "docs", 'Update - 3.5' disc', 'Update - CD - R or CD - RW"

    I get a file only: BIOS of Windows Knockhill10GV170.exe
    Extraction of it I get 8 files:
    -KPM170. ROM
    -The c:\windows\system32\unicows.dll

    Now my question: How can I create this bootable CD-ROM to update my Bios?

    Just to know: download all the other things are done on my desktop from my laptop is not starting ;)
    I also tried to run the exe in the hope that it will create a floppy disk or a CD-ROM, but it is written "basic cfg address not found."


    Update the BIOS there are two ways to do this:
    -Traditional mode (TRAD) and in this case, you need floppy
    -Windows (WIN) and this update can be done under operating system running.

    Update BIOS WIN will work if you run Windows on your laptop satellite. If I understand your assignment well you are trying to do traditional BIOS updated, but using the BIOS to WIN update. On the Toshiba download page, there are two listed BIOS updates and two of them as versions of WIN. This means that you can update the BIOS under operating system only.

    Back to your problem: in the history one thing confuses me when you write: my laptop does not start, but works recovery procedure. Sorry, but if the recovery procedure is working and you will have clean installed OS.

    Be a little more concrete in our laptop does not start. What happen exactly when you press the power button / stop?
