Cannot find BIOS Update for my Tecra A8

Q: Cannot find BIOS Update for my Tecra A8


I have my Tecra A8 PTA83E-0FJ05DJK laptop, and I want to update its BIOS, but in TOSHIBA's BIOS update webpage there are no updates for my laptop.

How do I do?

Preferred Solution: Cannot find BIOS Update for my Tecra A8

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

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.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Cannot find BIOS Update for my Tecra A8

BIOS update for your older Tecra notebook you can find on BIOS download page - http://www.toshiba.eu/innovation/download_bios.jsp
Of course you can find it if you choose option ARCHIVE.

By the way: if there is no some problem with your machine I think you should not change anything.
Don't change well working machine.

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.

A:Tecra 9100 - BIOS block 1 damaged and how to update BIOS?


All you can find is stuff on Toshiba support page. I don't know where you live but try to contact nearest Toshiba authorized service provider.
They have access to Toshiba database and they can obtain all this for you. Make a call and ask for help. I am pretty sure they will help you to solve this BIOS issue.

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


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?

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.

I have tried to do with the windows tool within the Zip-File (error message: User does not have administrator privileges), and with bootdisk (error message: unknown chipset).

What can I do next?

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


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!

My Hard Disk in Tecra S11 died, and I have purchased a new SSD.
Everything work OK, but I can not update BIOS any more. Update utility show an error:

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

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.

Recently been given an M10-10I to reinstall the OS. WinXP wont install at all so am trying to update the BIOS as it seems quite old (V1.5). Latest (and only available) version for this machine appears to be V3.0. Download and attempt to run the file "P0065V300" and get the message:

TOSHIBA BIOS Package Ver.3.3.0
This computer is not supported

What can I do? Its supposed to be for this model!

Also would prefer a boot disk version but hey I can use a Windows version assuming it will run on Win7.

A:Tecra M10 - BIOS update says "This computer is not supported"


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.

I updated the BIOS through Windows and my Tecra A6-EZ6311 asked to reboot, but not restarted, the LEDs light up but the screen stays black.

I downloaded the BIOS and recorded a bootable cd and started the notebook holding FUN + N keys, it speeds up the coller lights and other lights on the keyboard but nothing happens and I've done the same with pendrive but not flashing lights pendrive. I wonder if I still have a chance to save my notebook and how to proceed.

The USB ports do not flash the stick, as upload the bios in pendrive? Computer turns on but the screen stays black, if you press the keys Fun + B connects the notebook with accelerated fan and other luzez acessas on the keyboard, as if waiting for the upload the bios. But where do I upload this is not flashing lights in pendrive and writing ISO Bios in the CD drive spins the cd a few times and then nothing happens and I left for half an hour and not resolved.

Thank you very much.

A:Tecra A6-EZ6311 - Win BIOS update without success


I found your notebook on the Toshiba US support page:
There I could find also the compatible BIOS version.

I downloaded the BIOS package (it was exe file). But I could unzipped this package by clicking right and choosing ?unzip here?.
Within the BIOS folder I found readme.txt file. There you can find the instruction how the BIOS update work.
Also there was a notice that BIOS KeyInstallation Method, can sometimes be used to recover from the failure. If it does not, you'll need to contact Toshiba Authorized Service Provider (ASP) in order to fix it :(

Hi All,
I am having an issue with a screen after an update has been done on my Tecra with Windows 7 PRO 64-bit.
Laptop is working fine but I could see that after recommended update by Service Station to BIOS ver. 4.30 sometimes the screen is not turning on while the PC is turning on. The same situation is when Windows is turning off screen for battery saving, when I connect an external screen (VGA or/and HDMI) while splitting the signal, sometimes when screen is going to be active from battery saving mode it is with lowest resolution possible and I need to change resolution to the max possible, sometime the Windows is showing me that driver has been crashed ( igfxext.exe) and recover correctly.
I didn't have this issue before BIOS update. I also know that there is not a problem with windows driver itself as the problem sometime appears when I turning on laptop (POST).
The only solution to have a screen working is to close and reopen screen lid (multiple times) or turn off and turn back on the laptop.
And if you take a look on change log of bios then you will see:
Version 4.30 - 2018-05-18

Improved: Enhanced security.Addition: Support new panel

I could also see that laptop after the BIOS update is being warmer during regular operation (didn't have this problem before an update) which is impacting time on battery.

Now the question is: Can I downgrade BIOS version to previous one as this was working good? I know that it is not recommended but it just driving me crazy to fi... Read more

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?

This are the modules I have tried https://tiendas.mediamarkt.es/p/memo...--srx8-1202896

I want to update BIOS to latest level v1.6 .
I don't have a selectabay FDD ,only a DVD drive.
Now it would take 3 DVD's to do this i presume .ie having to sequentially update the BIOS to the latest.,
v1.4 then 1.5v and lastly v1.6.

Does the board support booting of a USB Mem stick, or a USB FDD.
Any thoughts on the best way to do this.

Is there a utility that I could download and do it from windows..

My system is an 820E. Tecra series 8200.


A:Can I update my BIOS using a USB Mem stick on Tecra 8200

I doubt you cannot do this.

Toshiba page provides a trad BIOS update which can be update only using the FDD drive.

Hey , guys. I recently did a BIOS update on a Toshiba Tecra 8100 Laptop running Windows 2000. After the update, while the system appeared to be working normally (LEDs on, a little HD acivity but no windows boot), the screen won't show up. I tried connecting the laptop to an external monitor, but nothing happened. Is there anything I can do?

(Update) I am able to get to the bios upgrade screen by holding down F12 before pressing the power button. Is there any other way to upgrade the BIOS besides using a floppy drive?

A:Toshiba Tecra 8100 Bios Update

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?

I have problems with updating the BIOS of my Tecra R10J. The current version is 1.4, and I want to update it to 3.0, so i have downloaded from Toshiba web site the correct file named "P006Cv300.exe" released from 11/04/2009. This is a BIOS update ONLINE into a real session of Windows 7. Simply, right click the compress exe, click run as admin and that's all but ......... for me it said :
*"[Error] The starting of service was aborted. User does not have administrator privileges"*

see below :

I've tried it with :
- closed AV, Firewall, etc ...
- disable UAC
- Run as administrator
- Tried with an another admin account
- Safe mode (bios update does not support safe mode)
- direct local administrator session

No change. Still the message "User does not have administrator privileges".
Need help please, found nothing on Google (similar Bios problem but not solved !!!!!)

Thank you

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 !

A:Tecra R10-10J: BIOS update aborted "This computer is not supported"


You should install the VAP (value added package) or if this package is already installed, you should reinstall/update this.

Disable Antivirus software and disable security things like firewall etc?

Hope you have luck...

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.

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:

My computer is a year old. It was completely fine until I noticed it had stopped charging the battery. After some googling I found there might be a BIOS update I had missed. When trying to install the BIOS update I get a message saying I have to plug in my computer first (which it always is as the batter doesn't have a charge).

The BIOS update program says it wants to upgrade as follows:

BIOS Version : Current Ver.2.60 --> Updated Ver.3.20
EC Version : Current Ver.1.80 --> Updated Ver.1.90

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

Is this a known issue with a fix available?

A:Tecra S11-119 won't recharge battery - BIOS update issue too!


Are you sure that you have downloaded and used the right BIOS version!?
I read about the similar error message and finally the user used not compatible BIOS.

Furthermore the VAP (value added package) should be installed in order to update the BIOS!!! In you case I would recommend reinstalling this tool too.

But I?m not quite sure if BIOS update will help you to fix the battery issue?
Maybe you need to replace the battery?

Is the a reason to update the BIOS or do you want to update the BIOS just because new BIOS is available?

I did not update the BIOS even if new BIOS is available for my notebook because I?ve got no issues.

However, the BIOS requires the VAP (value added package).
This package can be downloaded from Toshiba EU driver page?
If there is some problem with VAP, the BIOS update would not start.

So reinstall this VAP to check if this helps?

Hello. I am working on my computer, the HP Pavilion HPE h2-1256s model. Everything is stock except I put in a new power supply and a new graphics card. My trouble is, I bought a new graphics card (an Asus Geforce GTX750Ti 2GB model) and the computer turns on and hangs on POST. Just to make sure I hadn't broken something, I reinstalled my old graphics card (a geforce 550 TI which I had put in a year ago to replace the aging geforce 620 GT) and the computer turns on and boots windows.  So I figured the BIOS might be oudated for the Video Card.I have searched the HP website and I do not see a BIOS update for my motherboard on your site.

I can not find it anywhere. My motherboard is a Lancaster8. I found software that would search and download what bios update you needed but the reason I need the bios update is because my new nic card gives me a code 35

Your computer's system firmware does not include enough information to properly configure and use this device. To use this device, contact your computer manufacturer to obtain a firmware or BIOS update. (Code 35)

And I can't fix the unidentified network that my original nic card has given me. Please help this is really frustrating me.

Hey all! I guess i'm in a dead end. So, my PC is a HP 3410 Microtower PC and it has: Motherboard: Pegatron 2AD2 or PCWare IPMH61R2 ?Power Supply: 500W ATX5850W GamemaxStorage: 500GB HDD Samsung 7200RPMRam: 2GB HP and 4GB Corsair (both DDR3 1333MHz I believe)Processor: Intel Core i3 2120 3.3GHz 2nd GenVideo card (old): Nvidia GeForce GT9500 When I launch any program that tries to tell me my motherboard's model, it gives me "Pegatron 2AD2", but when I open my PC and look at my motherboard, it says: "PCWare IPMH61R2", who should I believe? I'm trying to update its BIOS cause I just bought a GTX 960 (replacing my GT 9500 so I can render my animations easily) and by the specs of the PC everything should be allright, but when I plug my new videocard and start my PC, I get stuck at the boot window frozen in place. My power supply has power enough to handle the GFX card (it needs 400W), my PC works fine with the old card and (it's a possibility but I doubt) yes, the video card may be damaged from shipping, but I really wanna try and update my BIOS first. Oh, and according to softwares, my bios version is: v7.05 - 09/13/2011 Thanks in advance

A:Vintage: How to find the right BIOS update

From what I can find (limited), these started off with WIN 95 and Win NT 4.0. There were 9 different models of the 500Mhz version.  Is there any indentifying tag/label?From what I gleaned from your other post, your trying to install a hard drive, right? Well your in for a problem, as the system only used these.

A:Can't find BIOs update for my computer

Hi: You should be able to use the latest Vista BIOS, but don't use the Windows based flash. Use the F10 DOS based flash method. When you first run the BIOS update file an information page should open and provide you with various methods to update the BIOS. Select the F10 BIOS Flash method. Get a USB flash drive and format it with the FAT32 file system. Read the instructions under the F10 Setup BIOS flashing method, and it should give you a link to click on to copy the contents of the DOS flash folder.  Copy the files in the folder to your USB flash drive. Restart the PC and tap the F10 key to get into the BIOS. Select the File menu and then select the Flash system ROM command from the list. Then select your USB flash drive and the PC should see the BIOS files on the flash drive. Follow the on screen instructions to update the BIOS. By flashing the BIOS using the above method, it does not matter what operating system you are running.

How to find out my bios version and update it?

I dont know which bios I have or how to update it...

Please help.


A:How to find out my bios version and update it?

type msinfo32 into the start/search field and hit Enter. There you`ll see what version and manufacturer you have. Then go to the website of that manufacturer and see whether they have any newer version. They usually provide the necessary tools for scanning and updating.
You can also check at the website of your PC manufacturer.

But why do you want to update the BIOS in the first place?
