Question about Computers & Internet

We have a Toshiba Satellite lap top. It was working about an hour ago, when we down loaded a BIOS upgrade from 1.4 to 1.5. After the down load and reboot the lap top now has a black screen with no wording. What could be the cause of this?

BIOS updates sometimes cause the motherboard to revert to its default configuration. I recommend that you go into the BIOS setup and examine the Boot Devices and Boot Order to make sure that your hard drive is selected as the first boot device.

Good luck!

Purchase a new EEPROM with a good BIOS loaded. I suspect the anti virus programme was not disabled and has stopped the new firmware from loading, leaving a corrupt EEPROM.

Reset bios on toshiba a205-s5804 satellite


If I could know the Reason why do you need to do so wd be better.
but with Laptops, to reset Bios is not a good idea, better is to get them upgraded with the same version.
Else first try loading optimum defaults

Window7 installation


1) you have to make sure that you have ALL the required Windows 7 drivers for your Laptop AND additional devices/application (eg. Wifi adapter, Modems, USB DTV, External Keyboard, etc). 2) get and install a 'Windows 7 UPGRADE' for your current Operating system. (Check for free upgrade?) 3) Windows XP mode (and native Virtual PC) is only available if you upgrade to the Professional or Ultimate versions AND your CPU and BIOS support 'Hardware Virtualization' ... even my Intel Dual Core T4200 processor does not support this feature!!!
Hope it helps: let me know how you go!

Are you talking of the BIOS password? Well, turn the laptop upside down and unscrew the plates. Under one of then you will find a button cell about 1 inch in diameter. remove it and reinsert it after five minutes. Your BIOS password will be erased.
If you are talking of the Windows password then you will have to reinstall Windows unless you know thw administrator's password. If you do, then delete this user and recreate it after a reboot. If no, then you must reinstall Window in a directory other than \Windows. For more info read the link

You can reset the BIOS back to the default setting by going into the BIOS configuration and there should be a setting "Load default settings" then save and exit.
The other way to reset the BIOS is to remove the BIOS battery, wait 1/2 hour, insert the battery, then go into the BIOS configuration and set the Date & Time etc.

Toshiba A65-S1065 hdd compatibility


The hard drive should work fine thats a standard IDE drive.

For the overheating problem you probably just need to clean the fans with a can of compressed air. That series gets clogged pretty easily. Just blow from the bottom of the laptop where you see the fan towards the outlet in the rear.

You can boot from a USB floppy drive to do a bios upgrade - you can get USB floppies for $20 or so.

Or i have loaded a bios from a bootable CD (you can make one from Roxio or Sonic record now if you make a bootable floppy first - get one Here:
