Most of laptops batteries have electronics inside them wich test and transmit info about the battery itself. Maybe the fail is there and not in the laptop. Try with another battery befor dumping it.

Bios Faile

bios is always risky update, and toshiba is very well known to stuff up they bios...

first advice, never, ever, update bios from inside of your operating system...

as your computer is already dead, try this method, i cannot recall if you have phoenix or amibios but should work on both:

1. remove power and battery from dead laptop
2. download again bios and unfold it, remember the folder, do not run it!
3. go to this folder and find file with suffix *.rom, rename it to amiboot.rom
4. copy amiboot.rom to usb drive
5. plug usb drive into usb port
6. press and hold fn+b, plug in power cord and press power button
7. if after few seconds you see screen flashing and toshiba logo then returns, you just saved your laptop and few dollars...
8. allow it to boot, switch off, re-insert the battery and use as before.

if this do not work, i am afraid tha tyou need to find some toshiba centre which will flash and re-program bios for your. do not get conned into replacing motherboard! there are non-toshiba repairers which charge between $30 and $100 to flash "dead" bios, toshiba for replacement motherboard want over $300.00

if you find my advice helpful, plese do not hesitate to leave comment and vote 4 fo rme, thanx!

Hay dose the laptop drive has the option to change the mode for cable select to master

Laptop drives are hard drives but as there is only one you cannot use CS/MSR. If there is a problem with your drive not reading this can only be 2 things - either the BIOS has been changed or the drive is dead. Reset the BIOS and let the machine boot. If the drive is not detected it is likely a dead drive - sorry.

Bios update disaster

You have to download the old bios with another PC and then flash your bios with that.

Acer 1670 laptop will not boot in to bios

If what has happened is true, then the previous owner had killed the BIOS. He has tried to FLASH the BIOS and it failed. This then renderes the motherboard DEAD. Your only option is to try and find a replacement motherboard.
