Bios black screen

Toshiba L755-S5306 Windows 7 PC Screen Froze while installing Toshiba pushed software updates for BIOS. Upon forced reboot all I have is black screen although battery, HD power seems to come on. Recovery disk boot does not work either. Does Toshiba has any liability in creating this mess? Many customers have same problem on this model while installing this update.

Did You Check to See If Memory is in correctly ?you might have dislodged them by accident please check this !! Can you get back into bios there must be a reason for the black screen like Memory is the computer beeping ? What you can do is use a friends laptop or computer and create a recovery disc on there computer then put that disc into your laptop or you can borrow there windows disc.
Boot Manager:
Windows failed to start. A recent hardware of software change might be the cause. To fix the problem:

1.Insert your Windows installation disc and restart the computer.
2.Choose your language settings, and then click "Next".
3.Click "Repair your computer."

If you do not have this disc, contact your system administrator or computer manufacturer for assistance.

Status: 0xc000000f

Check the BIOS for PC Health settings. It is possible that you have put a low value for "Critical Temperature", which makes the Laptop to turn off.

SOURCE: dv6000 will not startup ,Black screen , hd isnit being accessed

When you first turn the laptop on is there a HP splash screen? Can you enter the BIOS (normally by tapping F2 or Del key). If so then it would seem the BIOS updated OK. If when you turn it on there is nothing the BIOS flash probably went wrong and the machine will need a new BIOS flash chip installed.
If you can access BIOS then it may be a simple problem that the new BIOS reverted to default values. The most common issue would be the boot mode of the HDD. Look through the BIOS menus and there should be an option for boot which will say AHCI/IDE/Compatibility. Try changing it to another option, save and exit BIOS and see if that helps. Try this for each option.
Alternatively tap F8 continuously when you turn the laptop on and see if the advanced boot menu appears, if it does try selecting Safe mode with networking.
Finally to test if the HDD is actually working, try downloading Hiren's BootCD and boot to it. Then run some HDD diagnostics to see if the HDD is operating correctly.
Hope this helps,

SOURCE: I've installed Windows 7 on my Toshiba Satellite

This laptop came with either XP or Vista on it and if you wish to use Win7 32 or 64bit you must install all of the drivers and preferably make a fresh install. There is only one video driver that will work!
To gain access to the correct drivers, go to Toshiba.com and log your laptop in. The web site will advise you on which drivers you require.
I feel sure that that is the only problem you have that is giving you this headache.
Don't forget unless you load 64bit Win7 you may not be able to utilize more that 2048 Mb of memory.

Toshiba c55t-a5222 bios update, after reboot no screen


Did it at anytime lose power during updating? If so, motherboard was damaged and needs replaced. Otherwise, try to boot into'Safe Mode with Networking' and if it turns on, immediately re-install your graphics (video) driver. See this link for instructions on booting in to safe mode on a Toshiba: http://forums.toshiba.com/t5/Windows-7-Knowledge-Base/How-To-Start-your-Windows-7-computer-in-Safe-Mode/ta-p/272525

Installed wrong update bios for Toshiba Satellite L300D


You may have killed your laptop. BIOS have little to do with an OS like Windows, Linux, etc. The display issue is the culprit. Using another computer go to Toshiba website a get the current BIOS for your laptop. Are you able to access the BIOS at all? (press Del during bootup? to enter the Config screen (looks like DOS)

How to stop constant beeping on bootup after BIOS update and Windows 7 installation?


I know when I flash my bios a lot of things go through my mind until it is over because the last thing i want to see is the computer shutdown. To answer your question it is possible the update you received may have had errors in the files causing the computer to go on a beeping rampage.The only thing I can suggest is contact Toshiba's customer and technical support system to try and get answers.

Yep. U had a software issue initially - there was nada wrong with your bios. Apparently, the bios update did not go well and now you have a piece of junk on our hands. Without a proper working bios no computer will boot up. And on a laptop the bios chip is usu.ally soldered on the motherboard so it cannot be readily removed and replaced.

Time to go shopping.

On the motherboard you can remove or short the battery backup of the CMOS (the chip that holds the software part, which is called the BIOS). This will reset the BIOS to factory defaults.

The OS-loading screen is a stong indicator that thee is nothing wrog with your hardware, but it is a driver issue. You need to press F8 as your computer starts up and enter SAFE-MODE.
Windows 7
Using the F8 Method:
  1. Restart your computer.
  2. When the computer starts you will see your computer's hardware being listed. When you see this information start to gently tap the F8 key on your keyboard repeatedly until you are presented with the Windows 7 Advanced Boot Options screen as shown in the image below.

  3. Using the arrow keys, select the Safe Mode option you want.
  4. Then press the enter key on your keyboard to boot into Windows 7 Safe Mode.
  5. When Windows starts you will be at a typical logon screen. Logon to your computer and Windows 7 will enter Safe mode.
  6. Do whatever tasks you require, and when you are done, reboot to go back into normal mode.
In safe-mode remove & delete the drivers you installed. If you can, revert to your old driver set.

I am afraid to inform you that your Notebook needs to be replaced.

As BIOS is the basic software (firmware) which will be interacting with all the Hardware in the Notebook, it may not be possible to do anything if it is erased from the BIOS ROM Chip.

However, there are few service centers around who will be able to Flash the BIOS so that you will be able to use it.

Actually, we are not supposed to even touch the Notebook when the BIOS is being flashed in Notebook like yours.

However, in latest HP Notebooks, the BIOS is being provided as Winflash which can be flashed within the Operating System by double clicking it.

Hope this helps...
