Hello Jim

BIOS password is very important security feature so BIOS removal technique cannot be theme for public discussion.
Such information cannot be shared on public forums. I hope you understand what I mean.

As far as I know Toshiba uses several different techniques how to remove BIOS password and I depends on notebook model.
If BIOS password must be removed it can be done by Toshiba service provider. Contact nearest Toshiba ASP in your country, explain the situation and they will help you with this problem.

Computer is a satellite pro C660-29W PSC1ME-00U00KEN

I've set a BIOS supervisor password (no user password is set). I know the password.

If I hit F2 it enters the text editor but does not give any opportunity to enter the password, and so whilst I can view everything there is no way to change anything.

Any suggestions?

I recently bought a Toshiba Satellite C660/C660D for my nephew, We have forgotten the administrator password and we don't have password reset disk is there anyway around this.


Answer:I forgot my administrator password on Satellite C660/C660


I assume you are talking about windows system password and not about BIOS password. Right?
It?s not very big problem if you forgotten the System password but if you mean BIOS password then you are in trouble because the BIOS password can be deleted just by an Toshiba ASP technicians?

So I assume you mean Windows password? so start the notebook and press F8
Now you can choose Repair my Computer and then choose HDD recovery.
This would start a HDD recovery procedure which would reinstall the system? during the setup you can set anther admin password.

Of course there are some other methods but as far as I know this requires 3rd party software/tools or Win 7 DVD? so I think the HDD recovery is the fastest solution.

Hello John

Removing CMOS battery will not help much. If the BIOS deletion can be so easy, removing password on stolen units can be too simply. Please don?t expect that this information will be posted here.

You can contact Toshiba service partner. They will delete password for you.

What is the easiest way to reset the Boot/BIOS/CMOS password on a Satellite A15-S127? I have seen notes on creating a Parallel loopback, but I can't find technical notes on how to make one. Even if I do manage to make one will it work on this model?

I don't recall seeing "Clear CMOS" jumpers on the board and I have heard that pulling the CMOS battery out will not reset the password in the event you need to access the BIOS later.

Can anyone help?

Answer:How to reset the BIOS password on Satellite A15-S127


I'm not sure about the A15, but as it is the american version of the A10, the reset method of the BIOS password should be the same. You need a special PCMCIA adapter. And the bad news: Only Toshiba service people have this adapter. So you have to go to a service partner.

Hi, guys.

I suddenly ended up having a bios password problem without having set one at all. I can?t seem to start up my A100-237 computer because it wants a password right after I?ve started it up.

Unfortunately I haven?t got the time to go to the nearest Service partner as it is 400km from here. Can anyone help me in solving the problem (I?ve read about KeyDisk, but I need a floppy to be able to use that and I simply donīt have one).

Maybe I can use some sort of bootable CD to reset the password or something else?

Thank?s in advance for your help!

Answer:How to reset BIOS password on Satellite A100-237?

No, no, no? you cannot do it yourself? the BIOS password is not easy to remove like on the desktop PC by removing the RTC battery.
Something like that is not possible on the Toshiba notebook and can damage the board.

The only way to remove the BIOS password is contacting the ASP in your country.
I think it?s a security option because before removing the BIOS password you have to show the bill or delivery note.

Model: Satellite L50D-B-17J
Serial no.: YE031145C
So, a cousin of mine has somehow managed to put a BIOS password on her laptop, and then forgotten the password. Now, I've been asked to see if I can fix it.

First of all: this laptop, despite being relatively new, is essentially fix or trash, she's already got a new one. I have already opened it up, so the warranty has technically been voided already. All this means it doesn't matter too much if it breaks in the process of fixing it. They say they have contacted support and not really gotten a clear idea of what to actually do, and I'd prefer to not have to bother with support either (the site Support system isn't even working for me right now).

Long story short: Is there a way of resetting the BIOS password on this model? I understand that it's possible on a lot of laptops to do so by removing the CMOS battery. Now, this model does not have one (I have it opened and have not found one). Instead, I understand that newer models may have a circuit that can be shorted to possibly reset the BIOS? Is this correct, and if so, which circuit is it?

Once again, the laptop is pretty much forfeit anyways, so if at all possible, I'd take the chance of doing it myself, if it's at all a possibility.

Answer:Satellite L50D-B - Bios Password Reset

Well the circuits in question would be the JCMOS1 jumpers normally located under the RAM. Bridge them while the power is off first. If that doesn't work then post to screen by taking out the battery and lead, hold the power button for 10-15 seconds, then hold Fn+ESC, while holding this down plug in the power lead and turn on the device. When the fan starts up release Fn+ESC. If you see a post screen then bridge JCMOS1 jumper then and that should reset the BIOS. Unplug the device and hold down the power button for 1 minute and then plug it back in again. It should start up with out prompting for a password. If you could not get it to post then refer to the user manual to see what it's flashing procedure is. The buttons needed for a flashing procedure will be the same to make it post. Only bridge the JCMOS1 jumper while the machine is on if you see the post screen, no other time. An easy way to bridge them would be to use a paper clip and bend it out and use either end of it.

Does anyone know how to reset a BIOS password on a laptop - A65 - s1062? The laptop was bought in USA.
I've heard that on laptops, the password is usually stored in an eeprom on the motherboard,
and what I need is an eeprom programmer/eeprom reader.

Or maybe it's possible to fix it? I live in U.K. How much approx. may it cost?


Answer:Bios password reset on Satellite A65-S1062

I had the same problem with a A60, but I don?t think that you can read that eeprom on that mainboard. Don?t do that, because I screwed my PCB with this procedure up. I think there is some other solution, maybe some short circuit of some pads but I don?t know it for sure, because I had to buy a new Mainboard, so there was no Password on it. :(
You have to remember: this is not a desktop board, it?s a notebook-mainboard and you won?t be able to put that eeprom (which is definetively not in a usual formfactor and not readable with a eepromprogrammer -> weird format) in a eeprom reader.

I think the best idea will be to give your rig to a service partner and they will delete the biospassword (hopefully without damaging your systempcb ;) ). I think this should be a secure way.

1. Welcome to Tech Support Guy
2. If you KNOW the password this is the procedure
If you know the password for the BIOS or UEFI or don't have one set, you can change or remove a password through the UEFI/BIOS settings, Hardware Setup Utility, or TOSHIBA Security Assist Utility.
As explained on the link with the sub links to the appropriate OS

Hi to all,

unfortunately (but "strangely" most of all!) my Toshiba Satellite a350d-20k PSALME-01D00RIT does not recognize the BIOS password anymore. It is just the same password ever. I have been using it since 9 months each time in order to let the laptop boot.

However, it is a couple of days since it decided by itself that now that password is wrong. After trying and trying, I finally decided to put the hard disk into another computer as external drive in order to go on with my job... but here it came the panic: none of the computers I've been trying is actually able to read the data on the disk!

After spending a while frozen in panic, I got back to myself and start asking around to figure out the problem. Someone said the fact of the wrong BIOS password has something to do with the fact that I cannot read my disk outside of that laptop: you know, it is some kind of security mean.

However, the only thing it cares to me is that at the same time I cannot use my laptop and I cannot use my data outside my laptop.

So, my questions are:
1) does that laptop model have such kind of BIOS-password-protection affecting also my disk?
2) will the reset of the BIOS password solve the problem?
3) how to reset the BIOS password anyway?
4) how to get back reading my data on that hard drive?

Waiting for any feedback.
Thanks a lot !

Answer:How to remove/reset BIOS password on my Satellite A350D?


Its not probable that the BIOS password has anything to do with the Data in the hard disk.
When you say: "none of the computers I've been trying is actually able to read the data on the disk!"
What do you mean exactly? You cannot view the partitions in the disk at all? Or you mean that you get an error message when you try to view files in specific folders like "My Documents"? An error message can be caused by encryption that Windows use to protect private data in sensitive user folders.

Windows 7 64 bit Satellite Pro C660-1NR Laptop

Hi There,

One of my users' Laptop Computer freezes at random moments throughout the day. At first I thought it was battery related, as the first two occurrences happened when working unplugged, but it has since done it when plugged in too. On average it happens at least once every day.

It will not resume afterwards, the only way to get past this is by holding the power button and restarting.

The problem started when uploading a number of Windows updates about 6 weeks ago. Before it has never frozen, not even once.

I will wait for it to die again (might be today, might be tomorrow!) and will look at the event log around the time that it died.

Do you think this is hardware or software related?

I have updated the laptops drivers, chipset etc, so all is as up to date as I can get it.

Nothing wrong with this laptop other than the freezes, performs fine when it's working.

Your help is very much appreciated.

Kind Regards

Answer:Satellite Pro C660-1NR freezes intermittently, hard reset required

>The problem started when uploading a number of Windows updates about 6 weeks ago. Before it has never frozen, not even once.

So why you don?t try to set the system back to the point before the updates have been installed? I think this would be the first step trying to solve this issue.

>Do you think this is hardware or software related?
If setting the system back to the early time point would not help, I guess an system recovery would be the next step to discover the reason for this issue?
After recovery the unit should work properly? if not? well it could be hardware related issue

I know this will sound stupid. but I am an OAP buying my first computer (for the wife at Christmas) and I have not got a clue what I am doing. We purchased a Toshiba Satellite C660-28Ton Saturday

Upon installation, It asked my wife to give it a name which she did and a password which she also did. She set it up ok and was able to access the internet etc. Later she turned it off and then found that she could not use it again. When she starts it up the computer name comes up ok, but when it asks for a password, the password she chose does not work. We have tried everything, every variation of her password etc etc and cannot get into the computer again

What can we do ? our password does not work and we do not know how to enter a new one. Can anyone help or advise what we can do ? We have not even registered the Warranty yet. Many thanks if you can help.

Answer:Re: New Satellite C660 blocked by password

Try this first.
Switch on the laptop and then press and hold F8. A screen should open with various options, using the arrow/cursor keys select "Safe mode with Networking". Hopefully you will get a login screen with "Administrator" as one of the users and if you do select that account and there will be no password. I suggest you use "help and Support" from the Start Button to see how you reset the password.

If you've now got your machine back I'd suggest you look at creating a password reset disc.

If you still can't get back into the machine then if you created the backup discs then you can restore the machine to its out of the box state with them

When i start up my computer it brings up a black screen with a blue box, which says enter password.
I do not understand why this comes up, or what the password should be.

Can anyone help please?

Answer:Satellite C660 asks for password

I assume you mean the BIOS password.
Strange if the notebook asks for password which you didn?t set in the past...
However, the point is that BIOS password cannot be deleted if you don?t know the password. Only the Toshiba ASP would be able to do that...
Therefore you can solve this issue only asking a Toshiba ASP for help and for removing this password.

Answer:Re: Satellite C660/1J2 and new BIOS

I?ve checked Toshiba support page and you are right. Offered BIOS version is 1.70. I don?t know why lower version number is offered as latest BIOS update.

Anyway, check Toshiba page next days. Maybe newest version will be offered.
But let?s be realistic, if your notebook runs well you don?t need BIOS update. If you don?t have some serious problems don?t change anything.

Hi all,
I have been locked out of my bios and I don't know the password either. My little brother was playing with my laptop and accidently set the supervisor password. Is there any way I can recover the password or reset it? I really need to change my boot sequence as I just bought a new SSD and need to format my notebook. Suggestions will be highly appreciated.

The following are my laptop details and bios version

Toshiba satellite Pro C660-29W

CPU Intel Core i5 2410M

8GB DDR3 Ram

BIOS: AMI BIOS - Aptio Setup Utility
System Bios ver: 1.50
EC Version: 1.50

Thank you

Answer:Satellite Pro C660-29W; How to remove Supervisor Password

Supervisor password is very important security feature and some kind of ?user reset? is not possible. You can cancel it but you must know the right password to confirm that you are the real notebook owner.

Toshiba service provider in your country can help you with this. You must just approve that you are notebook owner and they can cancel it for you. Of course you must pay for it.

As far as I know there are several techniques for password removal and it depends on notebook model.

Contact nearest Toshiba ASP and ask for help.

I have just bought Toshiba Satellite C660-15r off someone but the problem is it has a password on start up.
This is fine because i was going to restore it any way but when i go in to windows restore you need a password to access it.

Is there a way to reinstall windows with out using windows restore. I really hope someone can help.

Answer:Satellite C660-15r - Restoring Windows 7 without password

My advice is follow:
When you buy used notebook install OS again to have clean preinstalled operating system. Use Toshiba recovery image, if possible.
Just one question: do you mean BIOS password or Windows login password?

If previous user has set a password you need it and without this password you cannot do anything.
If preinstalled OS is locked with login password you can install OS using recovery DVD and you don't need any password for it. I just hope previous owner has created this recovery DVD.

today I found out that somehow I had clocked my processor to just 1.3ghz. I googled that I have to install toshiba value added package. After successful installation my processor started working normally (max 2.8ghz).

Unfortunately it has caused massive overheating of my notebook. While I was downloading bios update(and surfing normal websites) temperature went up to 83?C! I'm just not doing anything it's going really high..(btw. I'm using cooling pad).

I found out that if I update bios(current version 1.5) it might solve/help(maybe) this problem. I downloaded both 1.7, 2.0 versions.

Version 1.7:
when I run it, it just throw an error:

Phoenix WinPhlash64
Failed to retrieve system BIOS information.
BCPSYS block signature was not found.
Error code: -100

Couldn't find any solution for this..

Version 2.0
There is an error occured, please check below items.
BIOS version above 200. (I've got 1.5)
Battery capacity more than 10% (tested it with 8%)
AC is attached. (it wasn't attached)

Huh? I'm totally out. Computer is unworkable if I don't fix that overheating problem.(bios update)

I have a strange problem with a Satellite C660-18C, and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions.

This is a friend's laptop that crashed a little while ago. He appears to have tried to reinstall an operating system, although not using the recovery media, which he never made when the notebook was new. He has not managed to do this, so asked me to take a look.

The hard disk is still the original Toshiba disk that shipped with the laptop, although it has been removed and replaced. This was done to do some basic testing on the hard disk, which showed no errors.

If you boot the laptop from a USB stick with a Windows 7 Pro installation image, you get as far as choosing a partition to install Windows on to. It shows "Disk 0 Unallocated Space 232.9GB"

However, it reports "Windows cannot be installed to this disk. This computer's hardware may not support booting to this disk. Ensure the disk's controller is enabled in the computer's BIOS menu."

I have looked in the Bios and I can see no trace of the hard disk. For instance, if you look under "Boot", this list only shows, CD/DVD, FDD, LAN and USB.

It seems to make no difference whether the SATA mode is set to "AHCI" or "Compatibility"

Does anyone have any suggestions?


Answer:Satellite C660-18C HDD missing from BIOS

Usually good working HDD should be listed in BIOS (first BIOS page).
There you should see the HDD name and the size.

If first BIOS page does not provide any details about the HDD, then the HDD was not recognized by BIOS and in most cases this means that the HDD is faulty.

If you are 100% sure that this HDD isn?t faulty (for example it works in connection with another notebook), then an HDD controller malfunction could cause the problem?

But I guess it?s an HDD issue?

Hi all ...

I sat and would update the bios for my Toshiba Satellite C660-1TT (PSC1QE-01D006N5)

Sloopy as i was, i left the computer to get some coffee, *obviously one of my kids was there* and pressed some buttons. This resulted in the computer "froze" after a while i had to forced it to turn off.

Now the clock change back time and date every time I boot the computer and i can?t get wifi to work.
I tryed to reinstall the bios again but then get message that i already have the same or newer bios and installation terminated.

Someone who can tell if I can somehow trick the computer into thinking it is a newer version or mabye bring in the older again and then update?

Grateful for any help! Robert

(excuse my bad English)

Answer:Satellite C660-1TT - BIOS trouble


From my knowledge it?s not possible to downgrade the BIOS in windows mode because you will always get a notification that newer version is already installed.
From my knowledge the Toshiba ASP technician can downgrade the BIOS but only using the traditional (DOS) BIOS version.

But I would recommend testing this workaround.
Shut down the notebook. Remove the battery and disconnect the AC adaptor.
Now leave the notebook disconnected for a longer period of time? I think about 3-4 hours?
Then connect the battery and ac adaptor and access the BIOS pressing F2 while powering on the unit.
Here you should set the BIOS to default (F9) and save the changes.
Now boot the notebook and check how it would work.

Usually the date and time resets because the CMOS battery is empty. But I cannot imagine that this might be a problem here? however, you can charge the CMOS battery running the notebook on mains for 18-20 hours. During this period of time the notebook needs to be ON.

I attempted to update the BIOS from 1.00 to 1.20 yesterday through WinPhlash64 and it froze halfway through the writing process.

I've read online that there is a crisis recovery mode and a Phoenix utility program that can help reflash the BIOS..but for different Satellite models (e.g. A350). I found the guide [here|].

Does anyone know if this will work and *why* Toshiba don't host the original 1.00 BIOS version on the product page for this particular model?

Any help will be greatly appreciated, thank you.

Answer:Satellite C660 - BIOS Corrupt


I can?t say much about Crisis recovery tool for BIOS because everytime I did a BIOS update it worked properly so I never had a problem.

What I can say is be careful with such tools: You could destroy the whole ROM module and I believe nobody has tested this tool on C660 from Toshiba.

Such BIOS recovery can only be done from an authorized service provider because they have special tools from Toshiba I think so in your case I would get in contact with the guys to clarify the problem and they can help you go get rid of this.

Good luck! :)

Before running an BIOS update tool, you should close all running apps in the background and should disable firewalls and antivirus software too!

Furthermore the VAP (value added package) should be installed on your notebook.
The VAP is an Toshiba tool package which can be found on the Toshiba European driver page.

Hi costy,

Well, usually you can enter the BIOS if you press F2 key after you turned on the computer. So you have to press only one key to enter the BIOS and not both. Press F2 key several times until you see the BIOS setup.

I have a Satellite C660, sub model PSC0LE.

The (CPU) fan constantly surges on and off every minute or so. It is loud, and extremely intrusive / annoying. This is occurs regardless of load / CPU temperature. I have seen references to this issue, and some people have suggested that a BIOS update fixes it.

I have updated my machine to the latest available version (1.40) but this has not fixed it.

I note that this submodel (PSC0LE) doesnt have a BIOS update as late as some of the other variants (there is a 1.8 version for some of the other C660 submodels) and I think the fan issue is resolved in that.

Does Toshiba have plans to fix this on the PSC0LE via a new BIOS, or is there any other way to stop this as it is really distracting.


Answer:Satellite C660 - Fan surging constantly- BIOS fix

Try please to reduce cooling fan speed changing advanced power options > Toshiba power saver > cooling method.

For normal usage I recommend you to use balanced power plan and set cooling method to lower level. It should reduce cooling fan activity.

To be honest you can be happy that your notebook works because many people have had bad luck after not successful BIOS update.

In my opinion you should not ?play? with BIOS updates. At the end you will damage BIOS update and your notebook will not start at all. Maybe you should contact Toshiba service provider and clarify this. Ask for help. They should do it for you. If something goes wrong it will not be your fault.

Be careful with this. It is just my opinion and advice for you. Don?t change well running system.

Answer:Satellite C660-13R - BIOS update issue

Obviously the BIOS update procedure has failed. Something went wrong during the update process and it looks like the EMRPOM module has not been flashed properly.
This is the reason why the notebook does not work anymore.

Possible solution?
Well, if EMPROM isn?t damage, it should be possible to re-flash the BIOS module once again using special BIOS version and BIOS crisis disk.
Usually the Toshiba authorized service provider in your country should be able to re-flash the module using such crisis disk.

I read also in this forum that some people managed to re-flash the EPROM module using some 3rd party crisis disk found somewhere in the internet? but this did not work always?
So probably the ASP will be your last resort?

However, use the forums advanced search option to find related threads about the BIOS crisis disk? could be interesting for you

Answer:Satellite C660-1CJ BIOS flash error

> What may have been cause to this problem?

Some background processes which could not be closed properly?
Some installed software like Antivirus, cleaners, etc?
Hardware problems???
Its simply not possible to say why an update did not function?

>can i get any help on this please?
As far as I know the ROM module should be flashed again using an crisis disk.
This can be done by an Toshiba service agents.

Has anyone noticed that the fan comes on more frequently and makes more noise now than in the previous BIOS (1.80)?

I thought I had got round the noisy fan issue by running on an extremely low power/performance setting but I'm sure it's got worse now.

Good day, fellow Toshiba notebook owners.

I have a little trouble upgrading my BIOS to a "newer" (according to Tempro) version.
I just installed the Tempro application, and it detected that my BIOS needs an upgrade, so I naturally downloaded the "new" BIOS. Everything went fine, but when I tried to install it, a message popped up in the install window:

"*The program will be closed!* There is an error occurred, please check below items. Bios version above 190. Battery capacity more than 10%. AC is attached."

No matter what I do, I get the same error, over and over again. I looked the problem up before I posted this thread, and other people encountered it, but, unlike my case, advices like "Close all background applications", "Charge your battery", or "Make sure the AC is attached" really helped them.

I tried closing everything, my battery is always fully charged, as I rarely disconnect the AC adapter, and, of course, the AC connection issue is not the cause, since it is almost always plugged in.

I checked my BIOS version in +msinfo32.exe+ and it is 1.90 already, but I remember upgrading it months ago (sooner than the release date of this last version), and if, hypothetically, I have the last version already installed, why doesn't Tempro acknowledge it and keeps alerting me over a non-existent issue?

Maybe there is something wrong with Tempro, but I just need to be sure before... Read more

Answer:Satellite C660 - 1C7: BIOS upgrade issue


Tempro notify you about new uploaded drivers or BIOS?
The Toshiba European driver page provides all the drivers and BIOS files and the latest BIOS version 1.90-win has been uploaded at 04.06.2012 and therefore you received this notification by Tempro software.

Who knows why they uploaded this file once again.. but fact is that your BIOS is up to date and therefore you cannot update the BIOS once again using the one and the same version.

Hey everyone,

I use my Satellite C660 Notebook for some music production and I try to get my extern Presonus Audio Interface working. All is well so far except some occasional cracking noises in the AudioInterface. After fixing some things in Windows 7 that were recommended by tech support from Presonus these noises were still there.
So Tech support then gave me the following advice:

+"There are some power options that can be tweaked in your BIOS that may be causing the noise you are experiencing.+

+CPU Settings Section - Intel SpeedStep set to normal.+
+CPU Settings Section - Turbo Mode set to normal not turbo mode.+
+CPU Settings Section (if applicable) - Processor Operation Mode will have 3 settings, Normal, Fast, Extreme (??). Set it to 'Normal'+

+Power Settings: - C1E Support+
+Power Settings: - C3E Support (if it's there)+

+Save BIOS and restart.+

+Typically overclocking CPU's like the iSeries can cause the CPU power to fluctuate causing issues with noise on your audio devices, it is a new find and we are writing a FAQ that will be available on our knowledge base that will have a detailed description on the reasons why this occurs on over clocking CPU's.+

+Make sure any overclocking settings have been set to normal."+

*So for the first Time I entered BIOS only to find that none of these settings can be made on this Toshiba Satellite c660.*

Or can they somehow still be made? Are there tools, programs,...?

I hope someone can hel... Read more

Answer:Missing BIOS Settings Satellite C660


If the settings are not available in BIOS, you will not be able to change it or to appear it within the BIOS.

Mostly the Phoenix BIOS would be used by different manufacturers but the BIOS is always modified by manufacturers and configured for each notebook series.
Therefore particular settings are not always available in each BIOS.

I read in the presonus forum about crackling sound using dual core CPUs.
One guy could solve this using another USB port.

So maybe you should test all available USB ports.

Another option could be the usage of external USB hub connected to external power source?now quite sure if this would help to get rid of such noises but its worth a test.

Last but not least you could test this with connected and disconnected AC adapter

A customer with a C660-117 got a message from Tempro saying update BIOS. He did what he was told but the update crashed at Block 8 and would go no further.

Laptop will not boot now. Is there a BIOS recovery tool or does it need to be returned to Toshiba to be fixed. Customer not happy as it was Tempro that told him to update BIOS.

Any help greatly appreciated.

Answer:Satellite C660-117 crashed on BIOS update


Usually the BIOS update procedure is safety.
But some before executing an BIOS update, all applications and software like antivirus software, firewalls which run in the background should be closed.

However, as far as I know the BIOS flash ROM needs to be flashed/repaired by using an crisis disk?

Check also this thread:

But if it would not be helpful, you will need to contact an Toshiba ASP in your country to get it fixed.

Unfortunately such info is not available for EMEA notebooks. On Toshiba US sometimes I found such info but at the moment there is no similar notebook with this BIOS update version.

Anyway, if everything is K with your notebook don?t change anything.

I recently updated my BIOS on my Toshiba Satellite C660 to 1.70.

Can you assist me? Thank you!

Re: C660-1NR

I have lost the use of the function (FN) button.
I have recently upgraded the BIOS to the latest version about 2 weeks ago but did not notice anything wrong until I wanted to turn off the wireless mode last week.

Anybody know what has caused this?

Answer:Satellite C660-1NR - Lost use of FN buttons after Bios upgrade


Did you notice the problems with all FN buttons or only with the special combination FN + F8 which enables and disables the WLan?

Usually the Toshiba Flash Card Support Utility controls the FN buttons so you could try to restart this tool which you can find in All Programs ? Toshiba -> restart Flash Cards

My sister asked me to update her laptop (Toshiba Satellite Pro C660-16N; Part number PSC0ME-01S00SEN) from Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit) to Windows 8 (64-bit).
So I did.

Then I went to Toshiba's UK website to check if there were any drivers I needed to install for Windows 8. The only one was a BIOS update (to BIOS v1.70). I have no idea what the previous BIOS version number was.

So I run the update application within Windows 8. Phoenix Technologies WinPhlash starts and then halfway through the update, the whole thing freezes.

The trackpad wouldn't move the cursor or anything. I had no option but to unplug the laptop from the wall and remove the battery. The laptop is not under warranty.

Of course, now it won't turn on. It beeps once when I press the power button, but the system doesn't turn on. A couple of minutes later, it sounds one long beep then two short beeps. It then keeps repeating this "one long beep, two short beeps" sequence every couple of minutes.

I have Googled and read website after blog after forum post, but nothing works. The links to the software suggested on these websites/blogs/forums are usually dead, so I cannot try what they suggest.

The most common solution is the Phoenix Crisis Recovery Tool. I have managed to download v1.0.0.4 which is supposed to enable me to make a bootable USB key. The version of this tool that I have downloaded is meant to be for a Lenovo ThinkPad X200. I have the correct BIOS.rom for the Satelli... Read more

So I'm overhauling a C660-2JN, part # PSC1ME-01L00KEN, and having installed a clean Windows I got latest drivers for everything and went to check for BIOS updates.

If you visit the 2JN's page and go to the Driver section there is one BIOS listed: [v1.50-WIN| =2&selFamily=3&selSeries=313&selProduct=6019&selSh ortMod=3010&language=13&selOS=null&selType=null&ye arupload=&monthupload=&dayupload=&useDate=null&mod e=allMachines&search=&action=search&macId=&country =8&selectedLanguage=13&type=null&page=1&ID=80880&O SID=-1&driverLanguage=42] .
This is the BIOS that's already installed.

Now, the confusing bit is if I try to find updates via the ["Update your BIOS" page| AD_BANNER] it displays two newer results for the C660 -- 1.70 and 2.00.

I say "for the C660" because the part number of this machine doesn't exist in the bottom drop-down box, so I'm unsure how wide of a search I'm really doing.

I've extracted all three packages and they all use different flashers and have ROMs of different sizes, so I'm guessing the newer ones are for different spec'd machines, but it'd be nice to know (and, hey, maybe list compatible part numbers for stuff l... Read more

Bought a Satellite C660-22v on ebay which seems to work fine except none of the Tosh utilities are present.

I was going to reload the OS and downloaded the manual which say I need to set the BIOS to default. The previous owner has set the password on it and has told me what it is. What I want to know is, can I do the system restore without resetting the BIOS or how do I get the Tosh utilities?

Answer:Satellite C660 - missing utilities, BIOS not in default

To be honest I don?t understand what do you mean with these missing utilities. Fact is that this notebook was delivered with original preinstalled Win7 home premium. If you have recovery disc reinstall OS and start to use notebook with ?factory settings? that includes all Toshiba tools and utilities. If you want to install some of them additionally you can download them from

Generally speaking you can do system restore without changing BIOS settings but now when you want to use notebook from other person I think best thing is to remove BIOS password, set BIOS to default settings, reinstall OS and start to use notebook with original ?factory settings?. Later you can configure notebook and change the settings.
