You will need to go to Toshibas support site and find the proper BIOS download for this computer. In the options for the download, you are going to have to download it so it can be burned to bootable media...like a bootable cd rom. That way when you boot the laptop up, it will boot off the disc, and upgrade your BIOS....if it goes wrong you will be shopping for a new motherboard or a BIOS chip reprogram.
Just remove the CMOS battery and replace the new one i this the cost may be Rs 8 to 15. It will work surely or do in your motherboard reset the bios settings there will be one bios reset pin just see it careful.surely problems will be solved.If it is solved mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If it is solved please say thanks !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

hi im Dyanne.. on th 1st screen at bootup press th desired key to display th BIOS setup. on some machines you will see a brief notice on th screen as it comes to life stating which key to press. (ie. delete, F2 or esc etc) if not consult your instruction manual. you will get to a blue screen headed CMOS. now you need to setup th BIOS to recognize th presence of th new h/d. this will enable you to auto detect th h/d. go to th 1st in th list (cmos settings) and where it says PRIMARY MASTER click on it and enter and this will auto detect it. press F10 then Y and enter. this will now access your h/d and boot normally. good luck and merry christmas .. Dyanne xx
You can download the 'windows xp setup disks' if you have a floppy drive on that computer from here http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=E8FE6868-6E4F-471C-B455-BD5AFEE126D8&displaylang=en
or you can install an older version of windows that WILL run from DOS like win98, or winme, and then install your XP afterwards.
I hope this solves your problem, thank you, good luck.
If you are using an old computer, there’s a possibility that you already encountered this error message during bootup; “CMOS checksum error – Defaults loaded”. At this point, the PC will halt its operation and requires you to press F1 to continue or DEL to enter setup (mostly but also depends on motherboard) to proceed.
This is caused by incorrect or corrupted CMOS values. BIOS settings are stored in CMOS. Each time the system is booted this number is recomputed and checked against the stored value. If they do not match, the error message will be displayed.
For most cases, this is caused by the motherboard battery. Buy a new one to any electronic retailers in your area and replace it. Turn on your computer and press the stated key to enter the BIOS setup. It can be DEL for some or F2 but this depends on your computer. On the BIOS menu, try to change the DATE and TIME settings because their values are reset to different value. Most settings are set to default so leave it as it is. Save the settings and reboot your computer.
