I had the same problem. I updated the Bios via Vista instead of using a disk. It said it was successfully updated and had to restart. When it restarted, the screen wonldn't come on and it wouldn't even post.

I removed an aftermarket memory module (which had been fine up until that point) and all was well.I then re-installed the memory module and it worked as if nothing had ever happened. :)

I can't say if it will work for you, but its certainly worth a try.

This is bad, very bad. It sounds like the bios flash glitched. The bios is the root system programing that allows the machine to function. If you had a bad flash, then the entire motherboard may be shot. You will definitely have to take it to a shop for a professional diagnosis, or send it to Toshiba service, especially if it's still under warranty, since it is a newer machine . If you send it to Toshiba, DO NOT tell them about the flash. If you do, then you're free game for them to charge you full price for the repair if it's still under warranty.

Bat bios checksum problems solve


Step 1:
Update ASUS BIOS b> Insert bootable floppy disk or USB drive. Copy the updated BIOS file to floppy disk or USB drive.
(Note: BIOS file and boot files should fit on a floppy disk. If the BIOS file is too large to fit with boot files, consider using the EZ Flash method described below.) Insert the motherboard support CD into optical drive. Copy AFUDOS.EXE from CD to a floppy disk or USB drive. Reboot. When the DOS prompt appears, type the following: afudos /i[name of BIOS file]For example, "p4c800b.rom" might be the name of the new BIOS file. "afudos
/ip4c800b.rom" is the command that will install it. Wait. Your monitor will display the update's progress with a series of messages: "Reading file," then "Erasing flash," then "Writing flash." The "writing flash" message will be followed with a percentage counter that tells you how far the write has proceeded. The final message will be
"Verifying flash." DO NOT switch off or reboot at any point in this process or you will ruin your motherboard. After the update is complete, the utility will return to the DOS prompt. Remove your floppy disk and reboot. Enter the BIOS Menu and load "Setup Default." Save and reboot. You're finished. b> Update Using EZ Flash Copy your new BIOS files to a floppy disk or USB drive. Reboot. When the system is at POST, press "Alt" + "F2" to enter EZ-Flash. Alternatively, on late model motherboards you may press "Delete" to enter BIOS setup, then access EZ-Flash from the "Tools" option on the navigation bar. (Select Tools > ASUS EZ Flash 2 > YES) Wait for your system to check current BIOS information. Insert your floppy or USB with the new BIOS file. Select the drive letter with the BIOS update file, then select the file. Wait for your system to check the update file. After the file check is finished, click "Yes" to update your BIOS. Wait. Let the update procedure run until it finishes. Do not switch off or reboot or you will ruin your motherboard. When the update is finished, remove the floppy or USB drive and reboot. Enter the BIOS Menu and load "Setup Default." Reboot. You're finished. b> Update Through the Internet If it isn't installed already, install the ASUS Update utility. You can either download it or use the copy on your motherboard's support CD. Close all Windows applications if any are running. Launch the ASUS Update utility from the Windows desktop by clicking "Start>Programs>ASUS>ASUSUpdate>ASUSUpdate." The "ASUS Update" main window will then appear. Select "Update BIOS" from the "Internet option" drop-down menu. Click "Next." Select the ASUS FTP site nearest you, or choose "Auto Select." Click "Next." From the FTP site, select the BIOS version that you wish to download. Click "Next." Start the update. Wait for it to complete.

Bios password toshiba satelite l300


Method 1 (Flash BIOS)
Flash BIOS for Satellite L300-ST2501
Flash BIOS for Satellite L300-ST3502

1. Remove the battery and don't turn on the laptop (a minimum of one day or more). To remove electric current, which is still stored in the laptop. Based on experience, can turn a normal laptop, try to enter windows.
2. Download Flash BIOS slb0v150.exe then open the file, select Install, and select Install from Windows - OK.
Flash BIOS can remove the BIOS password

With solder, remove the BIOS IC, wait about 10 seconds, then plug it back. To remove the BIOS IC, you must remove the screws down and the LCD.

I hope this information helpful.

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!

My acer aspire 4315 laptop screen goes dark


ASPIRE ONE BIOS FLASH RECOVERY

First format an USB stick with FAT.

Download the latest BIOS, and put both FLASHIT.EXE and the BIOS file in the root directory of the stick. Rename the BIOS file to ZG5IA32.FD, that's important. Do not remove the USB stick.

Turn the AA1 off, make sure both battery and AC adapter are connected. Press Fn+Esc, keep it pressed and press the power button to turn the AA1 on. Release Fn+Esc after a few seconds, the power button will be blinking. Press the power button once. The AA1 will now initiate the BIOS flash, do not interrupt it under any circumstances. After a while the power button will stop blinking, and the AA1 will reboot shortly after. Wait patiently.

The BIOS has been flashed and all settings reset to default.

If for some reason you made a mistake during the procedure and it doesn't reboot by itself wait 5 minutes before turning it off, just to be safe that it isn't still flashing the BIOS.

I need to resore the bios on a Satellite NB A135-S4467


This sounds more like a windows problem than a bios issue. I only do a bios flash as a last resort or if there is new features that I need.

Wrong battery detected.


hmmm..interesting....you may need to download the system drivers, usually for bios or other utility programs. the compatibility issue with batteries, is based on the make/model being loaded into the listings from the sysadmin for your operating system.
