I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

Hi,

I am having difficulty updating BIOS for a Toshiba Tecra A9 -11i laptop, (using latest update from the official toshiba european site); after running the bios launcher (version 3.2.8)
I get the following message ' this computer is not supported"? The current installed bios version is 1.5 , date 7/5/2007

also if i may add a couple of further issues:
the function buttons tdon't appear to be working;,,
the led light for the 'FN' key lights up when key is pressed so assume FN key works, but there's no response when pressing the ''FN' key and one of the f number keys - i installed the command module software as have been advised but this hasn't solved it.

I also having difficulty getting AHCi' mode to work in Windows XP Pro SP3; I have intel chipset 965m +ICH8M, the Intel ICH8M serial ata storage controller-2828 shows in device manager- the matrix storage manager won't run so i copied the file iastor.sys from the matrix manager folder into C:/Windows/Driver/system32 and edited the registry as read elsewhere on the forum but have had no joy.

any advice would be greatly appreciated,many thanks.

> I am having difficulty updating BIOS for a Toshiba Tecra A9 -11i laptop, (using latest update from the official toshiba european site); after running the bios launcher (version 3.2.8)
I get the following message ' this computer is not supported"? The current installed bios version is 1.5 , date 7/5/2007

This error message appears if you want to update a BIOS which is not compatible with your notebook model.
Toshiba European driver page provides the 2.10Win BIOS for this notebook model.
So you used definitely wrong BIOS.

> there's no response when pressing the ''FN' key and one of the f number keys
Common modules controls the FN buttons.
So the issue should be solved installing Common Modules v 6.06.00, Utilities 4.30.15
Note; You have to press FN + 1, 2, 3 etc? DON?T press FN + F1 etc?.

> I also having difficulty getting AHCi' mode to work in Windows XP Pro SP3; I have intel chipset 965m +ICH8M, the Intel ICH8M serial ata storage controller-2828 shows in device manager- the matrix storage manager won't run so i copied the file iastor.sys from the matrix manager folder into C:/Windows/Driver/system32 and edited the registry as read elsewhere on the forum but have had no joy.

Firstly be sure that AHCI is enabled in BIOS!!!
Furthermore the Intel Storage Manager controls the AHCI so you should slipstream the AHCI driver to the Win XP CD as described here:

Hi,

I have a old Tecra 9100 with years of good service, and this is my first problem, but is a great one, after a forced reboot the screen shows a BIOS block 1 damaged message. I have tried to repair the BIOS upgrading to the last version I have found, the 1.6 one, but its a Windows version (to upgrade from a running Toshiba computer I think) and when I try to run it in another computer to generate a FDD and upgrade BIOS, I cant, beacuse a Toshiba common modules message.

Its there any BIOS diskette image-archive I can dowload to perform the BIOS upgrade in the BIOS?

Thanks in advance.

Hi

I was wondering what's fixed in the new BIOS. Toshiba does not disclose any information about changes in updates (why? It's really a weird thing to do).

Does anybody know, what it does? It's the third update already, and still nothing.

A:Tecra S11 and BIOS update 2.20

Hi

It seems that such details about BIOS changes are not available on Toshiba European driver page.
I found some details about BIOS updates and improvements on Toshiba US driver page but Tecra S11 is not listed. Maybe because it was note released only in USA.

You could get in contact with a local ASP in order to get some information about changes in BIOS. Maybe the guys could provide some info? then you could share it with us?

What to do? Please help.

A:Tecra S11 - After HDD replacement I can't update BIOS

> Error: Preparing to update was failed.
> You have not given permission to execute the update.

Do you have Admin rights?
Sounds like the issue could be related to missing privileges which are needed to run a update.

You could enable the admin account following these steps:
Choose command prompt (the black box cmd)
In the box type net user administrator /active:yes
Then log out. Usually an additional user account should be visible ?Administrator?.

Now log in using this account and try to execute the BIOS update.

Note: in many cases the VAP (value added package) is needed to run the update BIOS.
Be sure also, that package has been unzipped correctly before running the exe file.

I have problems with updating the BIOS of my Tecra 9100. The current version is 1.5, and I want to update it to 1.6, so that the UJ-820 DVD-RAM will work.

A:Re: Cannot update BIOS from 1.5 to 1.6 on Tecra T 9100

Hello

You are right. On Toshiba support page there is 1.60 update available for old Tecra 9100. As I can see just one option is available ? WIN option. That means you must do it under running Windows. So the option with bootdisk cannot be done at all.

Start your Windows, download update (910078v160.exe) and extract it to the desktop. Close all running applications and execute exe file. That?s it!

Did you press [Fn] then one of the functions keys [F8] or the one with the picture or words that say CRT/LCD. I own the Tecra 8000 this is the only way it's going to switch screens from the LCD Panel to CRT. Also how did you update the BIOS through DOS right? If you lost the LCD Panel or when you reboot the Laptops and don't see the words Toshiba or is it just blank screen. Does any of th lights light up for power, HD and battery?

Hi

Tecra M10-10I belongs to the PTMB1E series and according to the Toshiba EU driver page, the BIOS v3.00-WIN is the latest BIOS version which is available for this model.

The BIOS update requires some additional Toshiba tools like VAP (value added package for Win 7)

If this driver isn?t installed, the BIOS update would not work.

Hi there

I have upgraded the BIOS of my Toshiba Tecra M11-107 and everything works fine except one thing. It doens?t appear the TOSHIBA logo from the BIOS anymore. I just can enter the BIOS pressing power+F2 but I would like to enter like before the upgrade pressing just F2.

Searching in the web I found that it is like a fast boot mode but this option doesn?t appear in my BIOS. I haven?t changed anything, it is like it has changed to the fast boot mode with te upgrade.

Moreover I have upgraded the BIOS because I bought 2 RAM modules of 4 GB Kingston DDR3 CL9 1333 Mhz that doesn?t work fine, with then my laptot just restart windows 10 again and again. I thought that upgrading the BIOS they could work but it happens the same. Do you Know if it can be a problem of the new RAM frequency? I think that the chipset just support 1066 MHz. Can you recommend me a RAM compatible with the lapton?

1. I have a 500 MHz processor on my 8100. I'd like to upgrade it to max capacity. My guess it's 800MHz since that's the highest the series went to.
But if it is 800 MHz, will any PIII Mobile on this frequency do? Or should I check for special parameters of the processor?

2. I don't have a floppy drive, neither means to get one. And I'm not going to ebay one just for a BIOS update. Any ideas? Will a bootable CD with the files do the trick?

3. What's the slot of the DVD-ROM and what replacement models can I use? The 8200 went as far as an 8x DVD-RW. Could I go further?

Thanks. Hopefully my post is OK like this instead of three different posts.

A:Tecra 8100 - max processor, DVD-ROM and BIOS update questions

1. Have a look at the other Tecra 8100 models to determine what CPU's are compatible.

2. I dont think a bootable CD would work, you need to follow a special procedure to update the BIOS, and it requires a floppy drive. If there is a Windows version, you should use that instead.

3. Upgrading the DVD drive can be difficult since you need to use the correct Master/Slave settings and it needs to have the same faceplate design of the original one.


Personally, I would sell the laptop and buy a faster second hand one. It may work out to be cheaper.

Hello,

My laptop is a Tecra R10-10J PartNumber PTRB1E-00D002FR, BIOS version 1.40 13/11/2008.

I recently purchased and installed two 4GB RAM modules (8GB). Entering BIOS setup, I see 8GB detected. Windows 7 64bit also detects 8GB but only uses 3,80! MemTest and CPU-Z diagnosis are good for entire 8GB. I switched RAM modules from one slot to the other but nothing changed.If I replace one 4GB memory module by a 2GB, Windows 7 uses 5,80 which is well. Same result whichever 4GB memory module or slot I use.

I assume that issue comes from BIOS. Version 1.40 does not support Memory Mapped I/O feature.

So I followed instructions on "http://fr.computers.toshiba-europe.com/innovation/?download_drivers_bios.jsp?" to find last good BIOS update package for Tecra R10-10J. I downloaded and executed BIOS310?.exe but received error message "This computer is not supported"?.

Is anyone can tell me how to update my BIOS or is anyone has a better idea to enable full support of 8GB RAM?

Thank's to all !

I have an Acer Aspire ES1-711 with Windows 10 and when I updated the BIOS to 1.08 the touchpad became upresponsive after reboot. They keyboard suddenly quit working as I was writing this, I tired to disable and re-enable the touchpad and that caused the keyboard to quit working. This computer might as well be a desktop now because you have to use a wireless keyboard and mouse to use it... Why does Acer always have to have faulty BIOS updates?

A:Bios update not working on Satellite Pro M70-275

Hi

Is BIOS update necessary? Or what is the intention to update the BIOS?
Usually if you have no serious problems, the BIOS update isn?t essential

Regarding the sound:
You can solve the problem in Windows XP installing KB888111 and KB835221 hotfix before installing sound driver.

Hi.  I am trying to create a bootable USB drive to update the bios of my laptop.  When I download the ISO file from the Lenovo driver website and extract the files, there is nothing there.   Is there an issues with the file?  Or is the issue on my end?   The specific file I am looking to download is here:   http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/products/Laptops-and-netbooks/ThinkPad-Yoga-Series-laptops/ThinkPad-...

Hello and welcome,
 
I can't tell you how to convert this into a bootable USB flash drive, but the file looks like the other BIOS ISOs I've examined.

I recently purchased a T450s.  It shipped with BIOS versoin 1.18.  I downloaded and ran the application to upgrade the BIOS to version 1.18, but it appears the new version is not being applied.  My system still shows BIOS version 1.17. What could be the cause of this issue?

A:T450s BIOS Update to 1.18 not working

HiHave you read the BIOS upgrade related readme.txt file?There are several important requisitions:- Lenovo recommends to install the USB 3.0 driver for Windows (Version 1.4.0.225 or higher) prior to updating the BIOS. Because the BIOS requires the modification in the USB 3.0 driver to fix USB 3.0 related issues.- You need an AC adapter and a charged battery pack.- Remove the Power-on password prior to updating the UEFI BIOS in the remote deployment environments.- Make sure to be logged on with an administrator account on the target computer.- Make sure the AC adapter is firmly connected to the target computer.

After updating the BIOS to the latest June version, the HDMI output just stopped working. I tried connecting the cable to the display via DisplayPort to HDMI adapter, and it works, so that problem is not in my cable and not in my display. Trying to connect the HDMI to the display and using Picture in Picture I can see that the display doesn't detect any HDMI displays.  Resetting the CMOS doesn't help. Any ideas?

A:Keyboard and trackpad not working after bios update

Hi, One thing you could try would be to see if you can roll back to the previous bios version as follows. Shut down the notebook.  Tap away at the esc key as you start the notebook to enter the Start-up Menu.  Select the Diagnostic Menu option ( f2 ). Select the Firmware Management option and then select the BIOS Rollback option. Regards, DP-K

My notebook is around a year old and in good condition - a few days ago the keyboard completely stopped working. I went through a lot of fixes and troubleshooting, and some of the symptoms really don't match what i am seeing online. For starters, the majority of the time it will not accept an external (USB) keyboard. Also, in order to be able to enter my password with a USB keyboard i have to boot the computer whilst holding Shift and Enter. Now the keyboard is being extremely temperemental, it isn't useable. Certain keys will occasionally work but not correctly, for example the 'T' key will operate TAB. So far i have done a full system restore, i have removed the battery and held the power button for around a minute, i have updated the keyboard driver and reinstalled it. I've been trying these things in different orders for the past 2 days and i'm not making any progress. The computer hasn't been in contact with any moisture, it hasn't been dropped.  The next step i am considering is updating the BIOS - i have no knowledge of this and wondered if this was an appropriate thing to do? Thanks for reading! 

A:Notebook Keyboard not working - Bios Update?

Rturner9314 Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!You don't say what Model laptop you have, but my guess is that it did NOT come with Win10 preinstalled.  Is that right? And if so, did it come with Win7 preinstalled or Win8x? Asking because MS recently pushed out their Anniversary Update and, as evidenced by LOTS of postings on the Win10 community forum, and here, that has been causing serious problems with folks whose Upgraded PCs worked fine with the older versions of Win10 (i.e., 10240, 10587) but not with this new version (14393).We can proceed once you provide the answers. And NO, a BIOS update is NOT going to address this problem; plus, unless you have a very new PC, there is no BIOS update available for it.Thanks
