    Hi The bios i installed was from the toshiba website the number is bios 20071126124517

  • julian_wood Mar 08, 2009

    Hi Thanks for your help i thought it was the bios chip maybe cooked well im hoping it is then a new bios chip will not be to expensive.

    What i cant understand is why it done it when i followed all toshiba instrutions it went through all the usual motions when it finished rebooted as it beleive it should and never started again. Maybe i should talk to toshiba themselves.

    Try reseating the memory just to be sure its not that.

    Hello Well i am sorry to say this but every company that makes computer parts that need drivers or software to be reset (especially) the bios have a disclaimer stating that if you are not familiar with installing drivers or Flashing bios to ask a professional but it looks like when you flashed the bios you killed the motherboard. To make sur thats not the case can you tell me when you try to start it up do you get a bios screen at all?????

I think the BIOS might be fried on the motherboard and thats causing the no video then. It would need to be replaced. Let me know the exact model and I can verify for you if the correct BIOS was installed so at least you can know for sure about that.

    correct one for sure. Motherboard is bad. One other option though is if you can find a place that will verify whether the motherboard is bad or just the bios chip and if its just the chip, it would be cheaper just to possibly have that replaced then the whole board.

    could be that the motherboard was going bad anyway cause the load of vista went very slow. Hard to tell honestly.

I am looking to reformat the hard drive (ie restore to factory settings) of a toshiba equium a60 laptop. However, I have no manufacturer disks so wondering if it is possible?

I've had a look at the the Toshiba website:-

It gives the impression that this is quite an old system. That being the case, re-installing windows requires re-formatting the HDD.

But keep the URL above handy, it may help with drivers you may need after the re-installationt.

Restoring factory settings

You can restore your laptop using a regular windows cd, formatting the disk and reinstalling the OS again. After that all the devices which the drivers are not included on the windows CD like for example; network, sound, video, you can download them from the manufacturer website and complete in this way the process to restore your laptop to zero.

Factory settings

When you first turn on your computer, press the F10 key until it boots into the recovery partition. Once there, select advanced then follow the onscreen instructions. Warning: This will erase all of your data.

Some newer HPs use a different key then F10; if F10 doesn't work, then look on the screen it should tell you which key to press to start recovery.
