SOURCE: Bios update failed, computer will not start

Pankaj_dic,

Do you mean to replace the motherboard or the Bios? I assume you mean the motherboard.

I've been researching the possiblity of having a new bios chip put on the motherboard instead of the cost of a new motherboard (300+ install).

Thank you for the quick response.

SOURCE: BIOS Battery Location of Toshiba Sattelite A15-S127

1. Remove the battery (side latch release) and hard drive. The only screw that holds it down is marked F-4 on the cover. (look for the panel with the 2" circle, that is the HD)
Use the white pull tab to move it left then upwards. It should move with little effort. Be careful not to loose the screw from the HD panel.

2.Remove all screws annotated F6 from the bottom bezel with a Pt. 2 screwdriver. (from my count there was less that a 15 )
Depending on the screwdriver, there are times where you might have to push the screwdriver down a bit to get in contact with the thread. Just be careful not to strip the threading.

3.Remove the "B25" screw located near the heat sink-fan vent. Somewhat carefully take your hand, and lift the bottom bezel up enought to disconnect (about 1-2 inches from surface) the battery with your index and midde finger. Look at they way the battery is run, and seated in the plasic clips.
With the bottom semi-open, plug in the replacement battery, and re-seat it in underneath the white ribbon cable, and clips on the housing per the original.

4. Replace all screws (less than a ton).

5. Re-seat the hard drive, by sliding it in first with the metal tab under the plastic housing, to the left, then puling it to the right. Replace the panel with the one, shorter, F-4 screw. Reseat the battery.

6. Return your model car with reciept. If a reciept cannot be found, use it for store credit.

If you wish to test the battery, simply unplug it and remove the battery for 30 minutes. Then power it on with only the A/C adapter. If no CMOS screen appears, you are good to go.

SOURCE: laptop boots then shuts automatically off

Try this, if you have a fast hand, the second it boots, push Ctrl+Shift+Esc and end taskeng.exe.
If you can't do it fast enough, try booting into safe mode, going to scheduled tasks, and removing any suspicious ones.
If you don't know how to boot to safe mode, push f8 until you see a screen which allows you to choose safe mode.

Battery not detected on a Toshiba Satellite 305. It runs fine while plugged in and the battery charges when i put it in another laptop.I have done all the quick fix ideas from the net turning off then on...


The Toshiba 305's were first released in 2008/2009. Depending on the age of your machine, the battery may very well just be dead. Typically there are warning signs like slower charging, and less battery life after a charge. New batteries for this laptop are available in many places and cost in the $20 to $30 dollar range.

I get a black screen when I turn on my Toshiba Satellite M45-S265 it says press F1 I do then it says put in the date then I do then I press all the buttons on the keyboad and nothing works it stays all...


it is stuck in bios mode. make sure that your harddisk is not faulty because this can cause it not to detect the OS and load. while in that black mode, try to enter setup and see if you harddisk is being detected.

Hi i have toshiba p305-s8830 i have new battrey but battrey cant be detected from the computer ?


If the original battery can be detected (even if it no longer holds a meaningful charge), and If the "new" battery is a 3rd party manufacturered one - and most of them are - it (the new one) may very well have been dead to begin with. Now please realize that these notebook batteries are not just a bunch of cells connected or wired together - it's a lot more than that, as there's also a circuit board between the battery contacts and the cells, and this circuit board almost always contain some form of propriety stuff that 3rd party battery manufacturers have to "reverse engineer" to be as close to the original specs as possible, and this reverse engineering stuff ain't always perfected or tested fully.

If I were you, I'd return it, get a replacement, and if the replacement is still not detected, I'd go with some other brand /manufacturer. This kind of stuff happens quite often.

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!

BIOS password for Toshiba Satellite A205-S5803


In that case you need to remove the BIOS password to remove you need to open the laptop locate the CMOS jamper located at the south bridge near the CMOS battery. Remove the jamper within 5 second after that reinsert the jamper. Now the BIOS password was cleared.
