Satellite L300D-01N - Need original BIOS version

Question: Satellite L300D-01N - Need original BIOS version

Hi

had a bad bios flash when trying to apply PSLC8-PSLE8-180-WIN.exe (Ver 1.80, 10/27/2009) bios update to my Satellite L300D-01N, model # PSLC8C-01N019

now the unit doesn't come on at all - I am trying to restore it to working but can't find a copy of the updated bios file (from the self extracting windows enabled bios updating program from Toshiba) during it's setup
(I have tried to extract it on another pc as the original laptop is a brick now but still no luck)

I have been able to confirm that i can get the laptop system in CRC mode, but i need a copy of the *original* BIOS that came with these units so i can reflash.
did anyone make a copy of the original bios from this unit before applying this update (ver. 1.8 10/27/2009) ?

Please note that i did not myself attempt this BIOS update, so i don't have a copy of the original anywhere.


Can you send me a copy please?

Thnaks a lot

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Satellite L300D-01N - Need original BIOS version

Hi lostboy77,

BIOS reflash can only be done from an authorized service provider. If the BIOS update filed, you can do nothing. :(

I know it?s hard to hear but you must understand that BIOS update is always a little bit risky and if it wasn?t flashed properly, your notebook will not start anymore. So it?s not so easy a Windows Update?

Anyway, here you can get fast and professional help:

Sorry, this is a repost of an earlier question, but this time I'll keep it very short.
I didn't get any response and it might be because my message was way too long.

Every time I download anything, my L300D tells me that the file is corrupted. Unless I can find out why and remedy it, I'm going to have to run the inbuilt repair utility to get the system back to factory settings. My concern is that the Program Files folder is on the same partition as the operating system, and the utility warns that everything on that partition will be wiped.

I don't know if this matters. Maybe restoring to factory setting reinstalls the programs (I'm referring to the original Toshiba-installed programs - I haven't been able to install anything much). If you've used the repair utility, can you clarify this for me please?

Thanks for any advice.

Answer:Will repair utility wipe original programs on Satellite L300D?

Hi

I mean you are speaking about Toshiba HDD recovery option or Toshiba Recovery disk?

Well, the usage of HDD recovery option will format only C system partition and will install the OS again.

The usage of Recovery disk will format the whole HDD and will create all partitions again and will set the notebook back to factory settings.

Do you need more details?

Hi,

Looking for any updated info on blind flashing the above model with a MS-DOS/Win98 boot disc and the 1.8 raw BIOS file extracted from the 1.8 EXE.
I've been following the guide but none of the key combinations I've tried seem to work (F, Fn + F, R, B, Fn + B).

I've confirmed my Windows 8.1 laptop boots to the USB key I created and I have the BIOS file named BIOS.FD

If anyone has had any success with this in the last 2 years, your info would be appreciated.

Answer:Satellite L300D - 1.3 to 1.8 BIOS upgrade

As far as I know BIOS update offered by Toshiba is WIN version only. With other words BIOS can be updated under running preinstalled Windows operating system.

It is not known to me that you can download files for traditional BIOS update. such update was used long time ago, I think before Vista OS was offered on the market.

More about BIOS update on Toshiba notebooks you can read here - http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/kb0/HTD9502M10000R01.htm

I'm trying to update my 733mhz PIII to a 1 ghz PIII, but I need to get the latest version of the bios to support it. First I dl'd the latest version that intel says was for my board, but it said "wrong version" or something along those lines when it ran. I think thats because the bios has to be at least version 9 before upgrading to version 11. I learned this too late. I found the version 11 somewhere else and sort of forced it to update. It said update succesful, but the bios version never actually changed. Now I'm trying to upgrade to version 9 first, but it won't. My problems are one of two. Either 1) I don't have a virgin IBM Formated 3.5" like neccesary (though my moms's friend says they are, which who knows?) or 2) Forcing that update before somehow corrupted certain files, so now version 9 will no longer update correctly.

As I cannot go to the store at this hour, I was wondering if there was a way to restore the BIOS to it's orginal version? (so I can start from scratch)

Answer:How to Restore Bios to Original Version?

if it said update succesful, then it did just that, it wouldn't corrupt files, if there was something wrong in the bios, it wouldn't start up, you'd basically get a blank screen with no posting. You should look on your mobo and see if you can figure out the model that it is, etc.. or even look for your computer manual or ask the company you bought it from..

Hello,

My name's Mohamed Elwekil, i bought Toshiba Satellite L50-A Laptop few months ago, and i lost all data and everything was in this laptop, now i want to have this Oem again to be able to download it once again because every time i try to install another Oem laptop tells me it's not correct OEM for this laptop

So please what i should do.

Thanks

Answer:Need original OS version for my Satellite L50-A

I don't know which notebook model do you have exactly (full model name) but I presume you have got it with preinstalled operating system. Can you confirm this?

Anyway, when you get new notebook with preinstalled operating system you can create bootable recovery media that you can use to reinstall original OS version. I’m afraid you don't have it, right?

Now if you have lost everything you have two options:
1/ to install own OS version
2/ to order original recovery disc on https://backupmedia.toshiba.eu/landing.aspx

At the moment I cannot say more than that. If you need more info please post full model name.

I had to update my bios & it seems that the wrong one was downloaded about 3% into installing the laptop just died & won't go back on.

There are no lights & there is no noise from the laptop at all.

Any ideas on how I can fix this?

The laptop is a Toshiba satelite L300D

Answer:Satellite L300D - Won't load after BIOS update

Hello

Well, if BIOS update crashed you can do nothing because the ROM module must be reflashed. This can only be done with special tools and only an authorized service provider has such tools.

So please contact nearest Toshiba service and ask for help :)

I need your help to fix my laptop since BIOS is not included in the warranty.

What happened:

I was downloading all drivers from Toshiba website to make a drivers CD-ROM in case I need it.
I accidentally clicked the BIOS update when I was doing drag and drop to a new folder and the BIOS begin without asking anything and freezz at about 50% I wait 30 min because I know BIOS is critical but after all this time I have no other choice then to power off the computer.

Now when I power on the computer I have no image the disc try to read and that it.

Now what I want to do is a CRISIS recovery since its the only option I have for now.

What I need is the BIOS file not the stupid .exe but a .rom or .bin I think and instruction on doing it on this particular model.

Thanks for looking to my post and I hope some one can help me here because a 80$ repair for a budget notebook is big.

Answer:Need you help to recover from bad BIOS flash on Satellite L300D-01P

I doubt you could be able to repair this notebook by yourself.
The point is that the ROM module was flashed not correctly and I assume it must be flashed again using an traditional BIOS version.
Such BIOS version is NOT available on the Toshiba page. Only a win based BIOS version.

Therefore you will have to contact the ASP in your country for a BIOS module flashing.

Sorry mate but I don't see any other solution for you problem.

It does not shutdown even when idle. Unfortunately I have not recorded the original BIOS version, so I tried few older versions of the BIOS, but that did not help to silense the fan. Any clues?

Answer:NB100-11R - Where to find original BIOS version?

Hi maxresti,

Normally you can only download the newest version of BIOS. That means you will not find any older versions on the Toshiba website.

To get the old version you should contact an authorized service provider in your country. The guys can reflash the old version in few minutes.
On the Toshiba website you will find a list of them where to find.

Good luck! :)

So I went to the Toshiba Site and I downloaded an update to the BIOS yesterday and installed same today, during the install the PC frooze,
I left it switched on and it stayed like that for four hours, then it switched itself off.

Now when I switch it on all I get is the fan running nothing else.

Hi there,

I installed the BIOS update 3 days ago, I did have a couple programmes open at the time and also an external USB mouse in at the time. The hard drive crashed and then blacked out, but the power was still on with the fan working at full pelt. I attempted turning the computer off by the power button, but it wouldn't, so I let it run out of battery. Since then the computer seems to turn on but the screen has been blacked out ever since, so I cannot see what state the hard drive is in.

Any ideas?

Answer:Re: Installed BIOS update to my Satellite Pro L300D and now screen doesn't work

Hi!

Oh buddy, this sounds like that your ROM module is damged due a faulty BIOS update :(

Normally a BIOS update should *not* be done with running background programs (also antivirus). I think this was the reason why the update wasn?t successfully.

However, you can do nothing. You will need help from a notebook technician that can try to reflash the ROM module. On the Toshiba page you can search for an ASP:

Ok. So, my fan was going on high speed constantly, and I know upgrading the BIOS is a fix for that. So, I updated my BIOS to version 1.80, which on Toshiba's website for my model said it was for ALL models of L300D. The update went fine and my laptop rebooted back into Vista great. BUT, now my wireless won't work. It shows up in the device manager as OK, and is enabled.

When I try to connect to a network, it says it's unable to find any more networks. It doesn't even show ANY wireless networks anywhere anymore. I logged a ticket with Toshiba who escalated it to 2nd level, but have yet to get a call back from them. I can't seem to find the original BIOS revision file to try flashing it back either or I would try that figuring the BIOS 1.80 rev has issues. I have NOT tried reimaging yet, and don't wish to do so unless that's my last alternative. Before anyone asks, yes the wireless switch is ON the front and yes it is enabled with Fn+F8.

Has anyone had this same problem? If so, did you have a fix for it?

Update, I noticed in the BIOS that there is NO settings for the wireless network. There is now only a selection for Embedded Network. Seems Toshiba removed it from this BIOS update. Now, I need to roll back the BIOS BUT I can't find the file! UGH! Does anyone know where I would find the BIOS version 1.6 for this model?

Thanks

Answer:Re: Satellite C850-B763 - I've lost my original Win8 version

To be honest you have big problem. Please don't understand me wrong but I don't understand why you don't read user?s manuals document and pick up some info about your product. There is clearly described that original recovery image is saved on HDD and you can reinstall it using recovery option.

There s also option to create recovery media. It can be DVD or USB. This recovery media can be used if there is some problem with HDD recovery installation or HDD itself. Now you have really big problem. I presume you didn?t create this recovery media and after Win7 installation you don't have ?factory settings? anymore and HDD recovery installation is not possible anymore.

If you want to have original Win8 version for your notebook you must order original recovery disc. It can be ordered on https://backupmedia.toshiba.eu/landing.aspx

long time unsuccessfully looking for original BIOS for my Sattelite A210-1AO PSAELE-03Q00FRU (Vista32bit preinstalled).

Unfortunately i updated it and laptop lost possibility to disable.
VERY noisy DWD-ROM (TS-L632H) via BIOS (but it definitely worked with original BIOS)
It is also impossible to switch it off via device manager (tried several times).

I have looked for BIOS everywhere i could (yes, i tried Toshiba Support & Download for Europe, USA, Canada, China, Russia - NO Sattelite A210 PSAELE BIOS in the lists, the same for A200 PSAELE).

Wrote to Toshiba Russia support - no result. the point is i do not know original bios version for my model, so i have tried BIOS versions 1.1, 1.4, 1.5, 1.8, 1.9, 2.0, 2.3 - no result.

I have a P25 which has lost its screen and dvd.
Screen is black with a dim light (graphics control problem I am told by Toshiba repair - requires motherboard change = USD1000).

The DVD (Mat****u UJ-809?) makes sounds but is not recognizable by Windows.

So I now use it as a desktop with external screen, keyboard and DVD.

As with all Windows installation things got clogged up so I now had to reinstall the Windows MC that came with the machine. However, running the Recovery DVD from an external DVD reader does not work.

As it boots I get a DOS message that there is no DVD and a A> prompt.
I can install a new XP version, but then I miss all the MC features and have to install all P25 drivers manually.

I would be very grateful if anyone could assist.

(If somebody would have a clever idea about the screen as well, please let me know)

Thanks,
Tom

Answer:Satellite P25: How to reinstall original software without original drive working?

Hello,
I can not say what tests your service repair ran, but the screen problem could likely be an Inverter issue. As for the dvd problem. I have heard that Toshiba laptops need the Toshiba external CD/DVD to boot or otherwise it will not work. I have not ever tried so I can not attest to this, but it could very well likely be that. Assuming that your CD/DVD is listed in hardware manager with a yellow exclamation mark do this, start->run->regedit then do the following.

go to hkey_local_machine, then system, CurrentControlSet, Control, Then class.
{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} This is your cd/DVD. Once there in the list to the right verify a component called UpperClass filter, click on it, hit delete, and delete it. Then do the same for lowerfilter. Delete both filters, then right click on My computer, on your desktop. Go to properties->hardware->Device manager. Right click on your cd/DVD and click disenstall. Then go to the top and click find new hardware. It should find your cd/DVD and reinstall the driver without any conflicts. Hope this helps.

First of all the BIOS update is not necessary if your notebook functions correctly.

On the Toshiba European driver page you will find all available drivers and also the newest available BIOS. At this time it seems to be a 3.10-WIN version

How to find out the BIOS version?
This is very easy? you have to access the BIOS and then you could see the BIOS version.
To access the BIOS you have to press the F2 button immediately after notebook was started.

Hey guys been reading the forums trying to find a fix for my problem. After I reformatted hardrive with the original CD everytime you reboot computer the wifi will drop even though the switch is in "on" position and won't come on untill you manually switch off and back on again.

Last time I fixed it by updating BIOS to 1.70 (newest) this time I cant reflash BIOS as it's window based flash and it checks that I already have 1.70. I reinstalled newest drivers and software for everything. I also searche a lot for older BIOS files if anyone mind sending over older 1.60, 1.50, for this computer would be greatrly apriciated it's M40 (PSM40E) it's the model with Nvidia 6600 video card.
Or any idea how I can reflash 1.70 again?

Thanks Daniel

Answer:Satellite M40 - How to reflash BIOS with the same version?

Hi!

Reflashing the BIOS with the same or older version is not possible. Therefore you must go to an authorized service provider.
The technicians can relfash it with the same or older version.

If you don?t know where is the nearest ASP you should look on the Toshiba website. There you can search for it.

Hello,

Can someone please provide me with an older version of the bios for my laptop (L30-113 a.k.a PSL33E).
Now I recently upgarded to version 3.10 from the toshiba's site and now my laptop seems to be generating a lot more heat than before. Also some of my USB ports stopped working properly. The version I was before was 3.00 I guess or something like that.
Also look what I?ve found:

Hello there!

I wondered about the function to protect the harddisk in the bios with a password. Is this just another "If-password-correct-go-on-booting"-function or does it really encrypt the harddisk and protects me from data-stealing, even when the harddisk is being adapted into another notebook, which doesn't have the password?

best regards

Answer:Satellite A100-691 - BIOS Version 1.70 - HD Encryption

Hi

BIOS password is not the same as HDD password. HDD password will be saved on HDD directly and there is no chance to do anything without this password. BIOS password will block notebook usage and nobody will be able to start your notebook but on this way the content of HDD is not 100% secure.

Of course you need the SATA driver installed firstly if you want to install any of the windows OS (Vista or XP)
Many people have already installed XP on the L40 PSL40E and they didn?t update the BIOS!

How can I stop it, or dowload the bios back to 1.9?

Answer:Satellite Pro L300 - Where to get older BIOS version?

Hi

Older BIOS versions can?t be downloaded on the Toshiba website. They are only available for authorized service providers.

But I doubt that BIOS is the reason of that. You should try to clean your notebook using compressed air spray. This could blow out the dust from the cooling ventilators.

I have the Toshiba Satellite P100-324 with BIOS version 3.30. I need to downgrade BIOS to version 2.40 because it help with stuttering problem when playing games on Windows Vista. But the problem is the version 2.40 is unavailable at Toshiba Europe website (I'm from Russia). I have found this version (one mate gave it to me), but it is for P105 models (US version).

The question is - can I use US version of BIOS 2.40 for my european P100? Is it compatible?

Answer:Satellite P100-324: How to downgrade BIOS to version 2.40

Hi

>The question is - can I use US version of BIOS 2.40 for my European P100? Is it compatible?

No, as far as I know the BIOS from the US website is different and cannot be used on the European notebooks. The risks are too high that the notebook can be damage.

I think the BIOS downgrade can be done only by an Toshiba authorized service provider.
So if you want to downgrade the BIOS try to contact an authorized service provider in your country.

But I don?t understand the connection with the BIOS and game running?!
In my opinion the game performance has nothing to do with the BIOS.

So in my opinion your statement about the 3.30 BIOS is a little bit adventurous.

You are right about BIOS version. Version 1.60 is the latest for your notebook model.
To be honest I don?t think BIOS update will be magic solution for your problem.
If nothing helps back-up all your data and reinstall OS using HDD recovery installation.

Do you use original preinstalled OS that you got with your notebook or maybe own version?

Hi Evan,

On which Toshiba website you have searched? Notebooks are country specific products and by using Google I have founded your notebook on the Australian page:
http://www.mytoshiba.com.au

If your notebook model doesn?t appear in the compatibility list, I think this update is not compatible to your model.

Furthermore why you want to update it? This update should only be done if your notebook doesn?t work properly. Otherwise it?s not necessary to make a BIOS update!!!

Answer:Satellite U840W-10J - loud fan and bios version

I think you should not be confused about BIOS. Maybe there is some problem with Tempro. This process runs automatically and it is possible that there is some technical issue. If you have latest BIOS it is OK so don?t worry about it. Just continue to use your notebook and don?t change anything.

What to say about cooling fan? Cooling fan is controlled automatically and depending on CPU temperature cooling fan runs faster or slower. When you play games you need more performance so use ?High performance? power plan. For ?every day? activities use ?Balanced? power plan. It will reduce CPU usage but it will be good enough for low level activities. What you can try is to change options for ?cooling method?. You can find it in advanced power options. It should reduce cooling fan activity and notebook should run quietly.

Play a bit with these options.

Hello.

I have some problems after last bios upgrade to version 6.80. First of all, I want to note that HW setup is not functioning for me. I have tried to use this tool to change bios settings without success. This has been also done by running this application with administrator privileges without success.

The initial problem appeared after I wanted to disable "Panel Open -Power On" setting.
This was enabled before the bios update and at some moment I wanted to disable it because it gave me a nightmare while carrying it because it would power on the computer while in a bag.

No matter how many times I tried to disable it, it still appears enabled within HWsetup.
Another function there that I cannot alter is Boot Speed.
It remains on Fast even though I have tried to change that to normal.

I am running Windows 8 x64.
The case right now is this.

PANEL
HWsetup reports PANEL Open - PANEL On as enabled, while Bios shows it disabled. It is in fact enabled and I have not managed to disable it. I even tried enabling it in Bios and then trying to disable in HWsetup, no change.

I'm trying to determine which version of BIOS I have in my Satellite Click Mini, but I can't work out how to do that.

It has been suggested that both the Tablet part and the detachable Keyboard have separate BIOS, and sometimes one gets updated but not the other, and that can cause problems, so I'm trying to see which BIOS version(s) my Click Mini has.

I expect it's easy to determine once you know how.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi folks,

I have noticed a that the fan activity has changed dramatically since I have updated my BIOS to V1.80. Every minute or so, sometimes even more often, the fan starts to work, going from what I believe is probably level 3 of 4 to level 2 and then stops.

This is getting kind of annoying, especially when I?m not working, and there?s only the internet (firefox) wokring on the machine.
Anyone else notice that ?

Thanks, Mike

Answer:Satellite A210-151: more fan activity after BIOS update to version 1.80

Hi

Did you check if the BIOS provide some settings which control the Fan/CPU performance?
Check this!

But possibly the fan table was changed/updated in the new BIOS version and therefore the fan kicks frequently.
In my knowledge the fan table is responsible for the cooling module performance and contains different temperature levels and information how the ventilators must run.

Usually this is necessary because the new-age notebooks are equipped with high-performance GPUs and CPUs which produce a lot of warmness.
As you know the high temperature could have a bad in influence on the notebook performance and could lead to the overheating issues?
In my opinion the fan table was changed to prevent the hardware from damage?
However, this is only my personal suggestion and we can only speculate.

Best regards and Happy New Year.

Answer:Satellite L750 (PSK2YV) How to get back to previous BIOS version

Hi

First of all you cannot do that because the Toshiba European driver page provides always the latest BIOS version? furthermore the BIOS is windows based and needs to be executed from running system. So even if you would have an older BIOS version, during the update you would get an notification that newer BIOS version is already installed.

But what do you mean by ?become slow???
I cannot imagine that BIOS would slow down the unit?

I recommend accessing the BIOS pressing F2 and then set it to default.
Save changes F9 and exit BIOS pressing F10

Hello from Czech Republic, I have also problem with noisy fan on my new Satellite A500-1E4 (PSAR9E) (i430M, GT330M) on 64bit Windows 7 during standart office work - see http://forums.computers.toshiba-europe.com/forums/thread.jspa?threadID=46719&start=165&tstart=0 .

Today I updated bios to 1.60 (from 1.20) and there has been no change. When is notebook powered up from adapter in all modes fan run at 60-70% (sometimes at 90% - my desktop is is perhaps quieter :-(). When is notebook powered up from battery in normal and high performance mode fan run at 60-70% (its noisy) and in economic mode at 80% (very noisy). It crazy that in economic mode produce more noise than high performance mode. CPU temperature is cca. 37-43 C, GPU 48-57. Fans of course never stops and everything is it in standart office work. Not intensive work or games. I can not imagine in the games.

Can someone help me please, I am really helpless. Or this only fixes bios 1.30 and following version not?

Answer:Satellite A500-1E4 (PSAR9E) - noisy fan never stops (BIOS version 1.60)

Hi buddy,

I think it?s really hard to say why this happens but in my opinion you should offer more details about your OS and drivers.
Are you running factory settings from Toshiba or have you installed another OS?
Sometimes high fan activity is also caused due another display driver. Have you installed the latest display driver form Toshiba (NOT nvidia)?

Older BIOS versions you can get from an authorized service provider?

My notebook is a satellite 4100XCDT with windows xp and i want to install linux.
Have bootable linux cd(tested on other computers) but notebook didn't boot form cd so i updated the bios with version 8.20 from the toshiba support site.
Tried 1.44 and 7.20 formatted disks as recommended in manual for 4xxx series. Bios was updated successfully

Result: after pressing the power switch the usual Toshiba screen appears, after that the harddisk led flashes for a few seconds then the windows save modus menu is displayed. After i made my choice (tried them all) a few seconds later(and hard disk led burning) a blue screen flashes (not long enough to read the message) and the machine is restarted. When starting up from bootable dos diskette i can't reach the C(hdd) and D(cd rom) drives
But in my opinion the windows save modus menu is called upon from the harddisk (so i think the harddisk still works)

Answer:Satellite 4100xcdt doesn't recognize HDD after updating BIOS with version 8,20

Hi

Well, in my opinion the bootable partition or a part on the HDD could be corrupt.
You are right, if the Windows save mode appears so HDD was recognized by BIOS and the HDD is bootable.

I think there must be something wrong with the data on the HDD.
Something similar has happened on my notebook several weeks ago. After using the chkdsk /r I was able to run the OS again. But then I have installed everything again.

On the Toshiba page I have found the companion disk.
The Companion Diskette is able to detect your CD-ROM drive on the
Toshiba computer during the boot process. If you need to access your CD-ROM
drive, then remove the word 'rem' out of the following lines in AUTOEXEC.BAT
and CONFIG.SYS on the Companion Diskette.

rem if exist toscd001 a:\mscdex /D:TOSCD001 /M:10 (AUTOEXEC.BAT)

rem device=a:\toscdrom.sys (CONFIG.SYS)

Hope it helps

Hi!

I've bought a Toshiba L30-134 PSL33 notebook one week ago in Hungary. I've registered at Toshiba for the international guarantee, so I saw that my notebook was made on 19.10.2006.
My friend bought the same notebook (Toshiba L30-134 PSL33) too (also in Hungary), two weeks ago. His machine was made on 19.12.2006.
It's already funny, but this is not all.
My notebook has a serial number starts with X, and my friends machine has this start with Z. That's OK.
But here it comes...
I have a BIOS version of 1.3 and my friend has a BIOS version of 1.9! 0.6 difference within two month??? Why?
The other thing. I have a DVD writer called Mat****a UJ-841S and my friend has an LG 4082! Again: why???
If you search at Toshiba for BIOS update you find nothing! It's very interesting. There must be BIOS updates, because I read here at another topis that someone has a BIOS version of 1.4. But there is 1.9 too.
Each notebook was brand new when we bought them.
Any idea?
Tell me when you have bought your notebook, which BIOS version it has, and which type of DVD driver it has.
I'm wainting for the answers, because I'm really interested!

Thanks,
Marcell

Answer:Satellite L30-134 PSL33 - Question about BIOS version and DVD writer type

Hi Marcell!

I?m from Hungary too, but I think I should speak english on this forum ? :) So, here is my notebook, I?ve bought it on 24.12.06.:

Type: L30-134 PSL33E
Machine was made on: 19.12.06
Serial: starts with Z
DVD drive: LG
BIOS version: 1.9

You shouldn?t be nervy about the drive, the Mat****a is Panasonic, and I think that?s as good as LG. Why are they different? I don?t know, maybe Toshiba had that type at the time. In the specifications I didn?t saw anything about the drive type, so I think that?s not relevant. I didn?t found another BIOS version for this model, so I don?t understand too why and what are the differences between the versions. But if you don?t have a problem with your machine, you don?t need to change the BIOS. This is not a PC, so you haven?t many options to change in the BIOS.
If you want to discuss about the notebook on hungarian language, I recommend you the Toshiba topic on www.prohardver.hu.

Please help.
I have bought my new Toshiba (and very nice it is) but I am unfamiliar with partions i.e. the auto setup of the laptop has created two Hard drives; one is called Vista at 56 GB and another called Data at 54.5 GB.

Everything seems to saving to the Vista drive (C) and this is nearly full.
My question is; How do I access the Data drive is it just a case of opting for E:/ instead of C:/ when saving programs or can I simply remove the partition?

Answer:Re: Satellite L300D-18D partition

Hi

The HDD is partitioned in two partitions;
C: partition -> here you can find the OS Vista
E: partition -> here you can find the HDD recovery folder and you can store also other files like pictures, movies, etc.. on the Data partition (E).

But one fact is important; don?t delete the HDD recovery folder on second partitions.
This folder is important and necessary if you would like to crate a recovery DVD.

Anyway, you should definitely create the Recover DVD using the Toshiba Recovery Disk creator software. This DVD is your last rescue if something will go wrong with your HDD and OS.

> How do I access the Data drive is it just a case of opting for E:/ instead of C:/ when saving programs
Yes, this is one difference. Instead of C:/ you can choose E:/ and all files will be stored to the second partition.

Hi, I have a problem with my Satellite L300D.

Upon start up after about 15/20 seconds it shuts down not reaching any display. I took it to a reputable PC repair company and after a couple of days they in formed me the graphics card had packed up and needed replacing for the sum of ?70. Being told this I sort a second opinion and spoke to an I.T. friend of mine who said you cannot just replace the GPU as it is part of the motherboard and this would cost in excess of ?150.

Could anyone on here advise/ tell me whom is right, the laptop is roughly 4 years old. Any help is greatly appreciated

Many thanks

Answer:Can i replace GPU on Satellite L300D?

Generally speaking your IT friend is right. On mobile notebooks graphic card is fixed on mainboard and cannot be replaced or upgraded.

In such case service order new mainboard and replace it. Problem is that new mainboard is pretty expensive.

Answer:Satellite L300D-11V does not boot up

I doubt there is a battery malfunction because the notebook doesn?t boot up even the AC adaptor has be plugged in.
I think you should try this workaround:
Remove the battery from the notebook and disconnect the AC adaptor.
Then wait about 20-30min and then connect both parts again.

If the notebook will power up I would recommend updating the BIOS.
If the notebook will not power up then you have to contact the ASP in your country!!!

Hi there,

I've just installed an SSD in my Mum's aging L300D-12L, hoping to give it a nice performance boost.
It installed and cloned from the original drive just fine, but I was surprised to find that it now takes about 5 seconds longer to boot than with the old mechanical drive!

Further investigation found that the SATA controller is set as a Dual Channel IDE controller in Windows, therefore giving no AHCI support, but I don't seem to be able to get it to use an AHCI compatible driver. There's no option in the BIOS to toggle AHCI on or off and manually forcing the driver to the Microsoft Standard ACHI 1.0 Controller does nothing, though it does let me do so for the secondary controller.

I've considered re-installing Windows from scratch but I'd rather not if I can avoid it, and I'm not convinced it'll make any difference anyway.

Is there any way at all to get this machine to enable AHCI mode? From what I can tell, the ATI/AMD chipset is supposed to support it...

Thanks a lot for any help.

Edit: Should probably mention this is running Windows 7 x64 and all drivers and the BIOS are up to date.

Message was edited by: MaximumFish

Answer:AHCI possible on an Satellite L300D?

Hi

The L300D-12L support the SATA HDD so it must be a SATA controller.
Some BIOS supports an additional option to switch the SATA mode between compatible (IDE) and AHCI mode (SATA).
If the BIOS does not contain the SATA mode option then the AHCI (SATA) is already chosen.

Furthermore this notebook is equipped with an AMD controller and the ATI graphic chip and therefore the Intel driver does not work here.

As far as I can remember the SATA driver was always a part of the display driver.
In the package there must be an folder containing the SATA driver files.

Answer:Need your opinion about Satellite L300D-11V

I'm not 100% sure but I think the Satellite Pro's come with an XP Downgrade Disc, so perhaps choose one from the SatPro range. Check the brochure first, it should tell you if it comes with a second OS.

Otherwise you would need to install XP yourself using a retail version of XP, and install the Drivers from the Toshiba website.


ps. Vista should run ok if the laptop has 2GB or 3GB RAM. If it doesnt, you can buy Memory (RAM) very cheap these days.
