Toshiba laptop updating bios
On mine the bios update came up on the screen and it was accepted sine we trusted Toshiba not aware of the problems they have had with this for over 14 yrs now.Naturally you don't know there is a problem until you have it and do the searches.
Boot a Toshiba laptop computer into the BIOS setup program by pressing the appropriate key sequence during the boot process or with a utility program.Different models have varying ways to access the BIOS setup program, which is required to change the boot sequence or adjust system hardware configuration settings.The BIOS can also be password protected to require user authentication when the system first powers on, before the operating system is allowed to load. Press the "F2" key when prompted on the boot screen to enter the Toshiba laptop BIOS setup program.If the "F2" prompt does not appear, allow the computer to boot to Windows, then shut down the computer to try another method. Press the "ESC" key on the upper left corner of the keyboard immediately after turning on the power, hold it for three seconds then release it.I have set up an email, [email protected], to gather info and possably take legal action It dependswhat bios you are having a problem with.Toshiba sends out bios updates for years and have had the same problem across multiple satellite laptops.
If you hold the f12 key (or on some models f2) when it first powers on, it will bring up the bios menu. Change this to CSM Boot This does the same thing as going from "fast" to "normal.
On the older models, you can go to advanced and you will see an option called boot speed. I just got my laptop 5 days ago and the same thing happened (bios level 1.6) On this model, hold the f12 key when you power on to bring up the bios menu. Save and exit and your PC should come up just fine.
What could be the reason anyone would flash the BIOS on a laptop? If you do not do it exactly right or if you have a power failure during the process it will render your motherboard useless.

If you did not do it correctly, or if you flashed a BIOS that is not compatible with your machine, you will have to send it back to the manufacturer to get it fixed. The BIOS (basic input output system) is the precursor to your operating system. The BIOS (basic input output system) is the precursor to your operating system. Toshiba has put out a program as a bios upate that is killing computers because avarage users like my self don't understand how complex this one is, and toshiba is not taking any responsability for their program or the results of the install.
It must go through its cycle before your operating system can function. It must go through its cycle before your operating system can function. I am the owner of a $400 notbook shaped paper weight..
I am looking for people such as my self that think that toshiba should take responsability for the problem they created and are tired of toshba getting away with this.
