Tried F8 and got into the set up, there is no Shadowing or chacheing that I can disable. I have also tried to reinstall windows to overwrite the problems but that wont even launch into safe mode

After a BIOS update, if it fails to post, the BIOS update got corrupted. This happens (rarely) and when it does, the only thing that can be done is to remove the BIOS chip and have it burned at a local repair shop (or sent into Toshiba for a replacement). Without the BIOS functioning properly, the computer can do nothing at all. If your BIOS is not on a removable chip, then the computer will have to be sent to Toshiba to have the BIOS replaced.
In that case you need to remove the BIOS password to remove you need to open the laptop locate the CMOS jamper located at the south bridge near the CMOS battery. Remove the jamper within 5 second after that reinsert the jamper. Now the BIOS password was cleared.
Hi, As the computer restarts hit F8 and boot into safe mode, if you can get the machine into safe mode then perform a system restore as i expect an update for a driver is conflicting. Take the machine back to a date before this happened. If the restore was successful and you may think that Microsoft Update was responsible for the system crash it would be a good idea to disable your automatic updates altogether. Please post back if you need anymore assistance.
Hi there. After using killcmos you should have updated the bios straight away, this is because you have wiped all the bios settings. As soon as you restarted the laptop you effectively killed the computer, getting it recovered can now prove near impossible. The only option you have left now is to locate the bios battery, remove it for an hour to see if the bios resets, other than that Acer may be able to help.
Hi, It's my understanding from your post that you have updated your BIOS and now the computer is not displaying anything on screen.
Remove AC power and the battery from the laptop. Hold down the power button for 30 seconds. Return just the AC power and turn the laptop on to see if it boots up. If it does let it boot into Windows and then shut down the laptop. Remove AC power and insert the battery and then AC power and turn the laptop on.
Hopefully the computer will boot and your problem will be resolved.
The problem is sort of solved. I phoned the IBM Support centre; they said that the mother board was either broken or faulty. Fortunately the laptop is still under waranty and so an engineer will come and fix it. I must say the IBM suport centre was very efficient and quick.
There was no mention from them though that it was the bios update that may have caused the problem.
If you have a known brand name video adapter, you can attempt to update from their site rather then the Toshiba Site, but I cannot guarantee that it will work since laptop graphics chips have custom drivers made that will not work with generic drivers
You are still lost for the driver and sad?
