I can't find the bios flash instructions .how do you flash the bios on my toshiba a35s159


You should check the Toshiba WEB site for instructions to how to upgrade (flash) your BIOS, if you make a mistake you may not be able to repair or recover from your mistake.

I have done BIOS upgrades on a few computers.
If your Toshiba has a floppy drive and you can boot up from this floppy drive then the BIOS upgrade needs to be downloaded to a boot floppy. Then boot up from this floppy and run the BIOS upgrade program. When completed, remove the floppy disk and boot up your laptop.

YOU MUST CHECK THE TOSHIBA WEB SITE AS THESE INSTRUCTION MAY NOT BE APPLICABLE FOR YOUR TOSHIBA LAPTOP.

How do I upgrade the Bios for E5140, E5320, E5520, E6150, E6520, E6530 and E6550 LifeBooks?
NOTE: This BIOS upgrade is for E5140, E5320, E5520, E6150, E6520, E6530 and E6550 LifeBooks. The upgrade fixes an issue with the Full Dock II/LAN Dock II/Port Replicator II.
Instructions on Upgrading the BIOS.
Step 1: Create a bootable BIOS upgrade disk
This step can be performed on any system (desktop/notebook computer) running a Microsoft Operating system.
  1. Place the BIOS upgrade disk in the floppy drive of your pc/notebook.
  2. Copy the system files onto the BIOS upgrade disk to make it bootable.
  3. For example:
    MS DOS prompt: type 'sys A:'
    MS Windows:
  4. Double click "My computer" on the desktop.
  5. Right click the floppy drive icon.
  6. Select "Format?"
  7. Select the "copy system files only" option
Step 2: Upgrading the BIOS
  1. Attach a floppy disk drive to the LifeBook to be upgraded.
  2. Place the BIOS upgrade disk (created in Step 1) in the floppy drive of that LifeBook.
  3. Reboot the system. Boot from the floppy.
  4. At the command prompt, type:
    phlash /mode=3 filename.rom (put a space after "phlash" and after "3". Filename is the name of the BIOS.)
  5. Allow the system to reboot.
Step 3: Change BIOS settings (For users upgrading from Windows 9x to Windows 2000).
To allow Windows 2000 to better manage your system, change the following settings in your BIOS:
a) Boot the notebook and press F2 to enter BIOS setup.
b) Set Power Management to Disabled
b) Set Plug and Play OS to NO
Consult your user's guide on how to change BIOS settings.

You don't need the install floppy... hit the F12 key when booting and you will get a boot order selection and tell it to boot to the CD. If it still doesn't see the HDD then you are most likely having a disk read problem with your hard drive. If that is the case you should boot into the system BIOS and see if the HDD is recognized there.

Unable to boot to anything external.


Save yourself some trouble. Pull a CD/DVD drive out of another computer or just buy one. They are very cheap. Connect the CD/DVD drive to the server and install the OS as usual.

If you are lucky WS2008 will already have a compatible SCSI/RAID driver. Otherwise, you will need to press F6 and install the driver from the floppy.

If this helps please vote for my solution.

Biostar P4M900-M7 SE BIOS ROM Checksum Error


The bios upgrade procedure stopped at half , leaving the bios corrupted. The computer now cannot do a regular boot procedure, this is the reason why it cannot recognise some device. If you are still able to boot from floppy, you can restart bios upgrade procedure from floppy. Just download floppy version upgrade and re do setup. Even if you do not find latest bios version, just download a floppy upgrade that is working, so that you can restart your machine regularly , and then do the update to latest version.
If you are not able to complete the bios setup, the only way to fix your motherboard will be flashing the CMOS chipset with a chip programmer device that will reinstall bios straight into cmos chipset.
You can have this done at the service point, in this case consider also replacing your motherboard.
