Question about Toshiba (P000204210) Motherboard

1 Answer

No BIOS activity

I tried to update my laptop chipset, after the reboot, the power stays on but there all other activities have stoped.

When I push the power button the screen stays black. I notice the DVD light tray stays on for a while and goes off, thats all the computer will do.

Download drivers


Ummm, no such thing.......

Driver: Small piece of software that allows the Operating System to communicate with a device

BIOS: Basic Input/Output System program

When you press the Power On button, the plastic assembly of the Power On button; presses against the Power On switch located inside it.

The Soft Power On circuit is activated.
This 'excites' the Power Supply, and turns it on.

The first chipset to receive power is the BIOS chipset.
The Basic Input/Output System program is initialized.

BIOS looks to see what devices are installed, does a Ram Memory count, turns the CPU (Processor) on; and hands the computer over to the Operating System.

To perform ANYTHING with BIOS in the respect you are stating, you would be performing a BIOS update.

The BIOS program in modern personal computers, no longer uses BIOS drivers.
"Older types of OS would use the BIOS to access hardware on the computer, but most new versions now access hardware directly through drivers built into the OS."

(OS = Operating System)

http://www.wisegeek.com/what-are-bios-drivers.htm

(Sometimes people just have to see another tech state this, just to make them feel comfortable about it, IMHO)

Know this;
IF, the power goes out when you are performing a BIOS update, your computer turns into an expensive doorstop.

IF, the BIOS update is not compatible with your computer, your computer turns into an expensive doorstop.

IF, you do NOT save the original BIOS program, and the above happens, your computer turns into an expensive doorstop.

Now,..........why is it you wish to fool with your BIOS program?

First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

Bios Beep


Motherboard BIOS Recovery Jumper
  • Install the bootable BIOS upgrade disk which you previously created to do the original flash upgrade into drive A: and restart the system. If the update failed because you used the wrong BIOS update you should get the correct one and repeat this step. When the computer reboots there will most likely be no video prompts, however you can monitor this procedure using the floppy drive light and the PC speaker. When the PC speaker beeps and the floppy drive light is lit it means that it is currently copying the new BIOS onto the motherboard.
  • When the floppy drive light goes off and the PC speaker beeps (twice in most cases) the recovery should be complete. During the update procedure there might be pauses that looks like your computer is doing nothing, if so be sure to wait at least a minute to make sure the update is complete. When you are sure the BIOS update is complete and there is no more activity, power off the computer.
  • Change the jumper you changed before back into the original position so the computer can operate normally.
When you turn your computer back on your BIOS will be functional and you should be able to use your computer normally again.

Computer wont stay on once power button is pushed


yes unfortunately with this series of laptops it is VERY common for the motherboard to fail because of something called an NVIDIA chipset so if you are not hearing any fans or hard drive activity for more than 3 to 5 sec than im sorry to say that this is what it is but you can however get new motherboards on ebay for a fair price! i am sorry and i wish you the best of luck.
