BIOS Update Issue on Satellite Z30-A-12R

Q: BIOS Update Issue on Satellite Z30-A-12R

Hi,
I have an issue when trying to update the BIOS of my Z30-A-12R.
I have installed currently the bios version 2.6. My computer had to be reformatted and all the programs re-installed. When reinstalling utilities the ECO utility could not be installed due to the incompatibility with the bios version I am using.
When trying to update the bios, the new version is 4.2 but when trying to download it and apply it, it says that my computer is not supported.
Is there any way to update the bios? Why do I have a problem with the new version?
Thanks for your help.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Hello

My last BIOS update has failed and now my laptop Satellite PrU400 PSU45E is out of order.
I want to use the Crisis Recovery Disk with an USB floppy drive but I don't know the key combination to run the boot-block.
Is anybody can help me?

Hi

I wondering what Crisis Recovery Disk do you have ?:|
In my experience the special disk is needed which is available only for ASP technician.
Therefore it?s necessary to contact the ASP in your country in order to reflash the BIOS.

In my opinion you shouldn?t not try any ?Crisis Recovery disks? which you fond in the net? this can lead to mobo damage?

Dear community,

after the upgrade from Win 8.1 to Win 10 my Satellite C-50-A was really slow. So I decided to install Windows 7 on it. But for this a BIOS version of at least V 1.30 is required. I only find updates for 1.40 and 1.50 on the website. But to install V 1.40, I already need V 1.30 installed and V 1.50 is not compatible with my CPU. Can anybody help me with this.

I recieved recently message from Toshiba Service Software that I could (should) update my BIOS.(1.20) to BIOS 1.50 . My Satellite L50-C is just few weeks old. Do anybody recomend me to do that or is not necessary to take such a risk that my Laptop will not work after upgrading?
Many Thanks and best regards from Austria

A:Satellite L50-C - BIOS Update 1.50

Well, I have a L50D-C and the BIOS updates solved a few issues that I was having on startup. Your model is slightly different so I don't know what issues you may have if any. Unless your system suffers from some sort of I/O software issue I wouldn't recommend it. Every BIOS behaves differently to all hardware and you may want to upgrade your hardware later. You will likely need to match it with the best BIOS available if that happens and it's important to note that you can't downgrade your BIOS(Not easily at least). So keep the BIOS you have for now until you notice some hardware issues when upgrading hardware or software drivers.

The BIOS update needs a installation of Common Modules? so be sure that Common Modules are installed or update this software.
The CM can be found on Toshiba European driver page?

Furthermore the P0044v370.exe unzips the package? I recommend creating an folder on desktop and to unzip the files in P0044v370.exe firstly. Then switch to this new folder and execute the exe file within the folder.

Hi all,

I have the problem that my laptop doesn't boot 9 out of 10 times with the message: *Bios block 1 is damaged, call your service man.*

I want to update the BIOS but for the Satellite Pro 6000 I can only find a Windows BIOS update. But my laptop doens't boot! Rarely the machine boot up, but when I try to update the BIOS, I get the message that I already have the latest BIOS

My questions:
* Is there a BIOS update file that makes a BIOS floppy? (for example the Satellite Pro 6100 has 2 BIOS files, 1 Windows and 1 that makes a floppy)
* Is there a way to update the BIOS with the same version in Windows ?

Or maybe there is another solution for this problem? That I didnt need to update my BIOS?

Thank you.

Hans

A:Satellite Pro 6000 - How to update the BIOS?

Hello!

I don?t understand your problem. The error message says everything that you should contact a service man or centre so why you want to try updating the BIOS? Furthermore if a BIOS block is damaged I can?t imagine that a BIOS update will help you. I think the ROM module is destroyed and must be replaced.

So please contact the nearest authorized service provider on the Toshiba website. I think they can help and say what you should regarding this problem.

Hi, First of all, this is first post.

I have 2 satellite L50-A-160 with bios 1.1

Problem: seems to go to sleep after couple of minutes even while working on them (same with both)

So I found an update 1.9, downloaded and run on one of the laptops. the biosupdate tool found matching bios and did a run.
In middle of flashing it went to sleep. turned on and no boot. what can I do? Any recovery options? i guess the same will happen with the other too..

What is wrong with these computers?

besides; very poor battery, alway shows 0 percent availiable and not charging..
Do anyone have any solutions?

A:Satellite L50-A-160 does not start after Bios update

Have you tried to change it in Power Options?

see screenshot and try to change the ones I have marked (it may refresh the settings, just change the values) and observe if this solved the problem.

and for the other laptop with no boot, a laptop sleeping while updating bios will surely mess it.

what I cant understand is why your laptop sleep at BIOS update, as far as I know sleep settings is only active while on windows(since this is controlled by windows)
it should not sleep while in BIOS even you leave it for 1year, sleep settings only activates after loading windows.

have you tried checking the temps of your laptops processor? maybe its overheating causing auto-off

When this control method gets run, it will access the GTF0/1, and that caused a run time namespace look up error, and that also caused the control method's execution failed.

My bios udated yesterday
On the first try the system locked up with the very helpful message "do not disconnect or turn off the computer" I couldnt if I wanted as nothing was working. After an hour I took a chance and held down the power button until it turned off. I re-started the laptop and eventually the bios update message appeared again - this time it installed without any problems.
Does anyone know what issues/bugs have been fixed or if any new features introduced? Its just nice to know.

I am glad to see that the laptop still gets some support - even if we dont really know what it is!

It would be great to get a touchpad driver update that enabled the adjustment of touchpad sensitivity and disable the touchpad click - I prefer to use the two "mouse" clickers underneath the touchpad.

A:BIOS update for Satellite M70-165 with Windows7

First of all thanks for your report about Win7 installation on this old Satellite notebook. I had it long time ago and I was very happy with it using WXP.
Until now on this forum nobody has reported about M70 and Win7 so there is no much info about that.
Fact is that this old piece of hardware is not supported for Win7 and if you have installed and configured it successfully don't change anything. Leave it as it is.

BIOS update is not important and will not help to make your notebook better as it is. Don't change BIOS at all.

I'm moving to a new place and I'm attending a major LAN party this week, so I won't have time to fuss around with waiting for a DHL courier or a postman to graciously arrive with a package. But taking into that we're dealing with Polish Post, the postman will probably leave a note and get on with their day, which is useless to me, it voids the effort of waiting for them and makes me travel miles to get the package. And these batteries are quite expensive too.

ProjectName = NWQAA
BiosVersion = 230

A:BIOS update for Satellite Pro S300

Hi

One change with the new BIOS is the 3G blue LED. This is now on constant blue when the 3G adapter is enabled but not connected to a network, and when connected now flashes constanty at about 2Hz, which is very annoying as it's in the corner of your eye when using the laptop.

I'd rather this was the other way around, so it flashes when on and no connection which is a nice warning that you have perhaps lost the mobile signal, and when connected it is on permanently, or on permanently but flashes off as traffic is transferred.

Do Toshiba read these forums?

Hi everyone,

I have a SATELLITE U400-10O (PSU40E-00R00EG3). It's an older product, but once which I still love an use regularly.

Recently, I have purchased a battery upgrade for this device. Unfortunately, the Laptop won't recognize it. The battery works, but I don't get any information on the charging level. I have tried various 'resetting' tricks (deleting Microsoft ACPI from the installed drivers list, running down the battery completely etc.).

I believe the BIOS could be outdated and I would like to update it. Unfortunately, the Toshiba Support website does not list any updates for it anymore. Does anyone still have access to the BIOS updates for this?

The BIOS is a Phoenix currently at version 4.70.

A:BIOS Update for Satellite U400-10O Required

Hi

N my opinion BIOS has nothing to do with it. Battery can be replaced and if you use compatible batteries they should be recognized properly. Here is the list of all compatible batteries:
PA3534U-1BAS/BRS
PA3536U-1BAS/1BRS
PA3634U-1BAS/BRS
PA3635U-1BAM/BRM

Have you bought one of them and original Toshiba product (Toshiba label) or some no-name product?

Hello to all,

I have a Toshiba laptop which requested to Update into the new bios ,from 1.40 to 1.60 so i pressed Okay,all went well all green at 100% , it restarted and from then i have black screen.

I searched around the internet and i saw many people with the same laptop as mine ,to have the same problem ,i think it's problem from Toshiba (out of warranty product).

I have found that the only bios file that i get from the european site is the 1.60
So i download it , i extract it to use with crisis but inside i see 2 folders

DIS (inside has bios.rom and ec.rom)
UMA (inside has bios.rom and ec.rom)

Don't know what to use, or how do i get it alive ,any help ?

I tried with both folders with all the necessary things.

I have downloaded the correct BIOS update from the site multiple times and I have tried both the Windows 7 install that came shipped and booting from a Windows XP (PE) CD. Whenever I try to update the BIOS I get the following message from the "Toshiba BIOS Package" program is: "This computer is not supported".

The file that is linked from either selecting the model manually or by auto detection is P0076v290_EC72V190.exe.

Has anyone been able to flash the BIOS on this model? My thoughts are that the site is linking to the wrong download? Has anyone got a working BIIOS update?

Hi cremeegg,

On preinstalled Windows 7 from Toshiba, is Value Added Package installed? This tool is necessary for the BIOS update.

Also load the default settings in BIOS for updating it.

Was the mainboard exchanged on your notebook? This could be also a reason due wrong DMI information?
