Question about Toshiba G15-AV501 Qosmio Notebook

3 Answers

Whats the trick to get into the BIOS of a Qosmio G15R-AV501?

Qosmio G15R-AV501, XP MCE. Real long boot cycle where there is no apparent activity. Probably doing tests, but the splash screen never gives me an indication to hit F8 or delete or whatever to get into the BIOS.

Try F2 as soon as you turn on the laptop or even try F12 cause that would get you to the boot menu and you can choose enter setup from that point.

Hello, I use the ESC key and it takes me to the BIOS on my G15R. I am missing one driver from my laptop and can't figure out which one it is? I have all the rest if anyone needs them. I think the one I'm missing is something to do with media and sound.

Try the ESC key bud.
Cheers

Look at the bottom of the screen when it boots up, it will give you the commands down there, normally it's hohl the delete key on a restart., Taping F8 will bring you into safe mode. delete -bios, f 8-safe mode

No particular problem with your unit. In your case it appears that the fan isn't operational - open the laptop and replace it.
Also check in the BIOS the shutdown temperatures, they might be set way too low.

Toshiba Qosmio G15-AV501 will not boot


Subscriber/user FMFM85 had posted a solution for another laptop that worked for me. That was Power down, remove battery, remove power, wait five minutes, plug in power and do not install battery, I rebooted to last known good configuration. This method got me further along.from the absolute DEAD state the laptop was in. Now I know that the laptop is really hosed in other ways. I will keep you posted.

I had the same problem, what you need to do is call Pamela Saunders at Toshiba Corporate in Irving, CA and she will get it repaired for you at no cost to you regardless of warranty. This is a bad batch of computers.

The Phone Number is: 800-457-7777 or 949-462-6000

Help with Toshiba G15-AV501 Qosmio bluetooth!!


The solution to your second problem is to insert the CD Qosmio Player Recovery CD. The buttons on the top do actually work (most of the time) yet it seems for some reason qccasionally it takes the CD refresh to get them working again. The picture and sound are great once you have got them working. So, don't be discouraged it's a great PC (once you have resolved your problems) I have had mine for 3 years w/o problems except for this one just described. Good luck.

One other thing I did have trouble with the Bluetooth, I resolved it by buying a Targus Bluetooth dongle, (disaabling all built in Bluetooth) then everything "paired" and worked easily, (unlike the built-in)
