Hello,

Updating the BIOS usually brings up some problems. It burns the motherboard. I suggest that you contact Toshiba regarding this for warranty support.

SOURCE: toshiba satellite becomes unresponsive after bios

Hi,

First of all try this. Turn the laptop off and remove the battery. hold down the power button for 30 seconds. Plug just the AC mains power jack in and turn the laptop on.
If it boots all is well, turn the machine off, put in the battery.

Just out of interest can you remember who manufactured the BIOS? was it Phoenix or AMI?


Good luck.

Upgrading BIOS! If it isn't broken don't fix it. Upgrading is a scapegoat fix, and many manufactures have a disclaimer. "You are on you own", and the likes for a reason. Most solutions are found elsewhere. However, if you truly need to update read this to help you with the upgrade. You don't want to end up with a brick. http://www.techrepublic.com/blog/10things/10-common-mistakes-you-should-avoid-when-flashing-your-bios/357

I have a Toshiba Satellite A215-S7462 and the keyboard is acting weird. when I type and press H key it automatically goes in front of the last alphabet i type and when I press down up and side arrow keys...


This is caused by a short in the keyboard. Either something was spilled into the keyboard, or it was hit by a hard object.
Search EBay! for a replacement keyboard. Most of the time you can find them for $35-$50 and have a professional install it for you.

Thanks... a Few days ago, i tried to turn on my toshiba A215, so appeared the bios password screen. I don't know what is the password.... Can you tell me how I can do? thanks


To reset the BIOS read the information from this link.

In case of your laptop the easiest method would be using software from Hiren's Boot CD as it's pretty hard to open it up and reach for the CMOS battery or the jumper.

We oreded one and got the other


There is no significant difference other than the build version with the latest build being the one you received and the best in that class of notebook, the A200 series.

You received what you ordered it is just the latest edition and you want that kind of service from Toshiba a great notebook maker.

Hope this Fixed Ya!
