After bios update no display on toshiba L455D-S5976


It sounds like you updated with the wrong BIOS or a BIOS version that isn't designed for your specific model laptop. You will have to revert back to your old BIOS version.

I have a Toshiba Satellite L465 S4056. My fan runs on high constantly, but my computer isn't hot. Is there anything I can do to make it not run on high?


Hi, if the airways are clean and the laptop does not get hot it is possible that your computer needs bios updates... first go into the bios to see what version you have then go to toshiba web site and search your model support and download section, if there is a bios update see if the version is newer than what's on your computer, if it is then sure follow the instruction to update.... I hope that helps.

Trying to reboot toshiba satellite a105 s1014 but it is asking for a password


Hello there...

I've been experiencing this similar problem once and toshiba replace my motherboard because they cannot solve the problem.

And I really hope that I am wrong. But, this problem is actually a known BIOS problem in some version of BIOS which is fixed in the latest BIOS update release Version 2.30.

See this quoted from toshiba tech support website:
Change History
Version 2.30 - 2008-10-10
  • Corrected: A BIOS password may be set automatically (spontaneously) by the computer.
  • Corrected: The internal keyboard repeat speed can not be changed.

See if you can claim this to toshiba, because it is actually BIOS bug.

Hope this helps... :D

I have a toshiba satellite l305-s5933 laptop. I was installing drivers, because I needed to reinstall windows. I downloaded a bios update, and now its not working at all. Is there any way to restore the...


Yes, but you will have to either ask toshiba for a replacement Bios chip or search the internet for a Bios chip provider. Your problem is that the Bios has either not be allowed to finish installing or that the download update was corrupt. You will need to tell the vendor of a new chip the serial number of your motherboard, so have that on hand, to find the number you will probably have to lift the keyboard to see the number on the motherboard (See you handbook for how to do that). When you have your new chip you must carefully remove the old one and replace with the new one, avoid static and be careful. If you cannot do this then the best answer is to take your Toshiba to a dealer. Note: if a new chip is available it should not cost more than about €20 , so be careful of sharks!
