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.
if you truly need to update read this to help you with the upgrade. You don't
want to end up with a brick.
Easist way to disable he password is to, restart the Pc, as it is starting up hit F8 key repetitively until you get into the boot menu. Once in the boot menu, look for Start in Safe mode, Once you start the Pc is safe mode You should get to the log on screen, It should show 1 new user, Know as Admin- The password- If there is one will be, admin or admin doesn't work try signing in with out any password.Once logged in go to your control panel and the into User Acct and disable the Password! Hope this helps!
if u be able to check the chips VGA and South-bridge, while the board on/working without casing u can fell by touch the chips surface if its hot or warm that mean chips working fine, if not that is make the display blank, if its fine just try to reset hardware Bios.. Good Luck
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?
Updating the BIOS can give problems if the wrong upgrade was installed or the BIOS update was not completely installed/finished.
If possible go into the BIOS and roll back to the previous version of the BIOS/backup version of the BIOS.
It sounds like two possible things. One thing may be that your screen is not working anymore. Can you get a monitor and plug it into your port located on the side of your laptop? If your screen pops up on the monitor this tells us your screen is either in need of replacement or a connection may be loose.
If that is not the case......
Another thing is your hard drive may not be initiating. If you feel confident enough I would open the back where the hard drive is located and make sure the hard drive is not loose. Does it give you any beeping sounds when you turn it on? Can you count the number of beeps? This will tell you what the problem is on boot up. Also, is it a black screen with a cursor blinking?
This sounds like the Toshiba Blacvk Screen of Death issue with early A215 models. Re-boot and hold down the F2 key to bring up the BIOS screen. If your BIOS version is less than 1.9, you must update the BIOS.Go to the Toshiba support site and search by model. If your BIOS is ver. 1.9 or later, then go to the power opetion settings and set BOTH the minimum and Maximum power to 100% for BOTH battery and AC. That will fix this about 90% of the time.
