Preferred Solution: Toshiba l300D wont load up after bios update fail

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: Toshiba l300D wont load up after bios update fail

It doesn't sound like it is fixable on your end. Flash BIOSes that go bad, leave you with a doorstop. You'll hear the statement, "I bricked my computer". This means you turned your device into a brick also known as a doorstop.

You might want to post at a good BIOS site
http://www.wimsbios.com/forum/

People do send bricked computers off, have the BIOS chip desoldered and a new one soldered on. You might be able to get information on that type of service.

Maybe if you contact Toshiba, they will be able to tell you of some companies that do this.

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 :)

Hey all. I am fairly well with computers, but this one has me stumped.

My toshiba satellite l455 laptop running windows 7 home premium 64 bit turns on (i can see all the lights blinking) but nothing appears on the screen. It is just black.

Here is what happened.

The left clicker on the trackpad broke off and slid under the computer (where the motherboard is etc...).This happened while windows was running. Then the screen went bezerk and random colors started flashing across the screen. So i turned it off, put the left mouse part back in place, but now when i turn it on i just see the blinking lights that indicate wifi, the computer is charging etc.... but the screen does not load. Just a plain black screen.

And what really sucks is 2 weeks ago i just purchased a new hard drive because the old one was broken. It was like 60 bucks.

The computer has good hardware (250 gb hdd, 4 gb ram etc...) and i dont want it all to go to waste. The computer is also fairly new.


Does anyone know what i can do to fix this???

Ok so i decided i would update my BIOS as i saw there was a new BIOS available at the dell website

I have a Inspiron 1100 2.2Cel, 512 Ram, 30GIG
I had a A29 BIOS and was updating to A30, So i downloaded and started the BIOS update it starts installing and has to restart as it restarts all is fine till it gets to the windows splash screen and it comes up with a certain boot file is missing in system32 ( I didn't get chance to see the specifics as i wasn't expecting a problem) and then straight away it restarts so the BIOS didnt finish installing and from then on it simply just keeps restarting at the splash screen

So i thought i would try Safe mode but the same problem, I then try putting my XP cd in and repairing the windows but still no luck so then i went and instaled a second XP which is now working fine, which relieved a bit as the Computer parse is working just not the original Windows

I now have access to the other windows install to be able to put the missing files in, But my main concern is getting "My Documents" as i have a lot of college stuff which isn't backed up on my USB drive, And when i go to get access it comes up with access denied because it's private

still didnt help

Tried copying some system32 files from the fresh install to the old see if the file might missing might have been added but still no luck

I tried to update my BIOS on my T530 today.  Tried both 2.07 and 2.50 (I'm running 2.04).  I'm using the Windows app, not the BIOS CD.  With both 2.07 and 2.50, I get the following error message: "Fail to do module option. The utility process has not completed."  Can anyone help?  I saw one thread that indicated this may be because I chose the option to keep my custom start up image when presented with the option, but I was afraid to choose anything else.  FYI, now the Lenovo update utility doesn't even tell me there's a BIOS update available...it's listed in my installation history as a successful update! Thanks for any help you can offer.  













Solved!

Answer:BIOS Update fail on T530 - Fail to do module option

If you are on Windows 8 it is likely because you need to do a full shutdown. The default is hibernate shutdown for the next boot. Then there will be cold reboot after which if may finish the process. Windows 8 shutdowns are totally different process and the machine is never totally off.

Hello guys

I'v just installed Windows 7 32bit on Toshiba Satellite L300D-23D , I didn't install the BIOS update but everything is working just fine .
Do I still need to update the BIOS?
Thanks in advance.

Answer:Windows 7 and BIOS update on Satellite L300D-23D

If everything works well I don't think you need an BIOS update.
I have Satellite A300 with old BIOS and use Win7 too. No problems at all.

Until everything runs well I don't even think about BIOS update.

Hi All,

I have a Toshiba Satellite Pro L300D running Windows Vista Business, it's only four months old, recently it started crashing and each time it did I got a message stating the BIOS needed to be upgraded.
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.
The powerlead was connected to the Laptop the whole time.

Have you any ideas as to what I can do, I have loads on the Laptop that I'd hate to loose.

Model is PSLC9E Satellite Pro L300D

Answer:Satellite Pro L300D PSLC9E - BIOS Update Failure

The case is clear buddy? the BIOS update procedure failed?
Maybe the BIOS could not be updated properly because the notebook crashed before the update procedure could be finished.

Well, I can tell you that you will be not able to fix it yourself? this is a serious issue and ONLY the ASP (authorized service partner) would be able to help you!

Therefore contact the ASP technician and ask for the further handling!!!


Good luck

What's the chances I can bring this laptop back to life after my friend updated his bios and it decided to turn its self off???

He used the correct Bios file from the Toshiba website, does all but the last bit where it updates the bios and then just turns its self off, any-chance it can be brought back to life without getting Toshiba to attempt to fix it??

I've had the battery out and the AC for a few hours, tried to turn it on get a few lights and the fan and the dvd drive can pop out but nothing else,

I'm guessing nothing can be done really ???

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:

Hi

As far as I know the BIOS package downloaded from the Toshiba US driver page contains the WinRAR 32-bit self-extracting ZIP file which includes both Windows-based and diskette based BIOS update installation options.

Did you try to update the BIOS using Win-based BIOS?

What OS do you use?

Hi - I have a G81915P Duo Pro mobo, XP and Vista on separate drives. I was (happily!) changing the boot order to select the OS. Then I increased (exchanged) my ram from 1GB to 2GB. The bios saw the new ram but XP sys info did not. It was recommended that I update my bios. So I went from F1 thru F3, F5 to F6. After each change I booted in bios fail-safe to XP. I did not notice that my Vista drive (IDE under a sata controller) was not shown in the boot up sequence selection.
So then I changed bios settings back to my original ones, saw my other IDE drives and booted into Vista.
Now I can only boot to XP by resetting my bios to 'failsafe' and to Vista by changing any bios setting. All very irritating!!
I have changed my bios back to F1 but it makes no difference.
Any ideas? TKIA
 

Answer:bios 'load fail-safe' needed to boot to HDD

Put back the latest BIOS version.

Start applying your own BIOS settings and see exactly which setting makes XP unbootable.

Please check and see if you can get into BIOS. By the way list Dell model number and version of window. Ex: Dell Inspiron 3543, windows 10
1. Power off computer
2. Power on computer, quickly start tapping F2 key continuously. Hopefully, you'll be able to see BIOS screen.

I am having trouble figuring out what to rename the BIOS file. I have read so many posts that I can't get clear on it.

I'm going from something like post #3 in this thread http://forum.notebookreview.com/hp-compaq/304332-cq45-insyde-bios-recovery-using-usb-thumbdrive.html
At least we know there should be some form of recovery possible using the <windows key> and <b key>.

Your BIOS update has two files in it and shortening them to four letters is simple but using a tool provided by one of those BIOS forums it gives five possible names for each of the two BIOS files included in the softpaq. The five names are the same for each of the two files which is what has me confused. HP doesn't give the manufacturer's name for your motherboard which makes it more difficult.

Now the power LED is on, and I can hear sound of DVD Rom when I put a Disc in it. But I can see only Black screen.

Would you please Help me. I have no solution. I lost my notebook.
 

Answer:BIOS FAIL dv6-2020ev:black screen after Bios update

How did HP end the service call-did they offer any further solutions?

Can you direct me to the support page for your model? I can only find it at HP India using Google cache--the actual website seems to be offline. [I want to double check that they were recommending the sp50586 for that model.]

Also, is there a longer model number on the tag on the bottom of the laptop? It might be useful for finding others who have experienced the problem. [There appears to be a BIOS recovery flash option that might work but it is important to have the right version of the BIOS to attempt it.] Since that update is so new there are not many people experiencing the same problems. Your laptop has an Intel processor?

I get an error message when I move to the desktop that says "BIOS Load Fail" but then i can close it and nothing happens to my computer. I am running Windows 8.1 and I just installed the new Toshiba Service Station Apps. I also checked to see if the BIOS was up to date, and it was.

> I get an error message when I move to the desktop that says "BIOS Load Fail" but then i can close it and nothing happens to my computer. I am running Windows 8.1 and I just installed the new Toshiba Service Station Apps

Could it be possible that this alert (message) is coming from the Service Station utility?

The service station software allows your computer to automatically search for TOSHIBA software updates or other alerts from toshiba that are specific to your computer system and its programs. When enabled, this application periodically transmits to our servers a limited amount of system information required to perform these updates or alerts.

Probably the message ?BIOS load fail? means that service station was not able to download (load) the information about the latest available BIOS.
From my point of few this is not a serious problem. If you want try to uninstall the service station tool from the system just to check if this would cancel the notification

Well my brother has this toshiba satellite a105 laptop and it was working fine.
Now I dont know exactly what happened, but my dad (who isnt to computer smart) said that he was reading news and the laptop just shut off and the windows start up logo came up, than the laptop restarted again and it keeps doing so every time the windows start up logo (the blue loading bar) finishes

There is a quick, almost instant blue screen with writing that pops up and I was able to read 'STOP' but nothing further, than the laptop just restarts again

I also cannot enter safe mode either, and when i put in the recovery cd, I get a messege saying WRONG MACHINE, but its the right cd for it

Any ideas what could be happening, and how i can get into windows again

Thanks in advance

Answer:Toshiba Laptop Wont Load Windows Xp

From what I see...that CD is a recovery CD and it will only work for the system it was created for.

If you get that WRONG MACHINE message, you are not using the right recovery CD...from what I read.

I think it would be better if you could borrow or get someone to burn you a copy of a real MS XP CD and use that in conjunction with the Toshiba license, if the situation calls for such.

The first 11 or so digits after STOP on that error message...are clues to whatever is recognized as wrong. If you can take a look, write them down correctly, and post them here...it would help.

The windows configuration with the drivers for the acer motherboard etc will not be liked when you put it in the toshiba and so windows pukes on it. You can try a "repair of the operating system" which will usually work', but it depends how familiar you are with a computer.

Answer:PC wont boot AND wont load any bios..

What jumpers did you mess with. Was it a bios reset jumper?What is the system specs? It sounds like the Bios is toast.Try to go to the web site of the motherboard manfg,and get a bios and make a BIOS image on floppy and reflash the BIOS. There should be instructions on how to do this.

i downloaded a bios update tool from HP website, but while updating the bios, there was a power black out. my laptop couldn't come out of herbanation and it can't boot. only the power button light, caps lock light and WiFi light are working, the fun is also working but it can't boot.i have tried removing the battery, power adapter and press the power button for a minute, nothing has changed..is there any solution for this problem.the pc is HP625 notebook

Answer:bios update fail, pc can't start

Hey,My son's laptop did this blank screen too - only power button light was on, but no fan, no key lights, nothing.  I tried the same hard reset -remove batt, press power.  Almost took it apart to reseat the RAM, but decided to search the forum again (sorry I can't find that hp support page anymore).  Anyways, you will read that beside hard rest and reseating RAM, they will tell you to try connecting it to an external monitor to check if it is a display problem. Short story, none of the above worked for me, EXCEPT THIS - hold down Windows key and "B" key.  While holding down the Windows and B key, press and hold the power button for about one second, then release all 3 buttons.  The power key will light up, wait for about 40 seconds (more or less), then the BIOS will update. Hope it works for you too. UPDATE:  I just found the link again.... I followed step 3...

Hello ... I am a proud user of Lenovo G550 laptop No problems so far,until i tried to update BIOS. I followed instructions by the book,but when i press install on self-extract archive,extracting starts and the i get the code: Error 5 Problem seems to be that i don't have administration privilege,although i have administrator account and it's password protected. Program seems to start (BIOS updating software),and then the error pops-up saying phlashnt.sys driver can't be loaded and that i should reboot and log on as administrator. My first thought was that my anti-virus software is causing this,so i turned it off and tried again,but that made no effect.I am using Free Comodo Internet Security Premium. Deepest respect for you people from Support staff and i hope there is a solution for this. Best regards

Hello, I have an N100 which was fine until I tried the automatic software and driver update which loaded the latest drivers and BIOS update/s. A box appeared on the screen asking me if I was sure I wanted to update the BIOS, and unfortunately I went ahead and suspect that the BIOS for the N100 with the Intel graphics chip was loaded, whereas I have the Nvidia model. So now I can't get into WIndows XP though the BIOS and DOS applications run fine. Every time I try to load WIndows I get a BSOD. Has anyone found a solution to this yet? Maybe there's a way of reverting to the correct BIOS through lenovo care or DOS ? Please feel free to reply and Many Thanks. ArnieLondon.

Answer:N100 BIOS Update Fail?

Try booting to Windows Save Mode by hitting the F8 key immediately as Windows is starting to boot.  From there you can select "Last Known Good Configuration".  If that fails, try "Safe Mode".  If it is just a driver issue, you should be able repair the situation.

There were quite a few on there including a Bios update... upon running the updates and the machine restarting at the end, I get a black screen....  and nothing... the power lights are on but not more.  I have called Lenovo tech support and they advised me that because I did the Bios update (as part of the many updates that were suggested I required) I have voided my warranty support for this problem.... apparantly I was made aware of this as part of the disclaimer prior to running the updates!!!   Does anyone have any suggestions on steps forward from this point?

Hello All! I am a bit inexperienced and new to the forums and am seeking help. I have been using a latitude E5520 for a few years now and have been very happy. About a year and a half ago, my hinges broke and slowly my laptop has been dying. I recently purchased a refurbished identical laptop with the hopes of just moving my SSD, RAM, Processor over and It would all work the same. Once I put my SSD in the new laptop, it would boot, but turn off after 10 seconds and I could here the fans going at full speed before it died. After doing some research, I figured I would update the drivers and BIOS to get the current laptop config as close to my old laptop as possible to increase the likelihood that the SSD would work properly on this other laptop. After downloading the FW and following the instruction, the laptop shut off and never came back up. The lights and keyboard attempt to turn on, but the screen doesn't attempt to turn on and it is making some small noises as it keeps shutting off and powering on. At this point, I would just like to get the new laptop working and forget about swapping parts, if anybody out there can help me, I would greatly appreciate it.

Hello,I have searched here for a couple days and read a bunch of posts - some of which I have tried.   I am NOT trying to go back down to Win 7 (though I really like Win 7)  I am trying to stick with Win 8.1. I was running BIOS P11-A1 and suddenly started having trouble with the USB 3.0 controller.I read some posts here and on other forums that stated I should see if there is a BIOS update. There are actually four for this machine and so I started with the oldest one P11-B0LTTo be honest the instructions in the README pdf file were not that helpfulbut I found soem great data on the AMI website that helped me update to P11-B0L. I ran the BIOS-DOS.BAT file first but got this error: "4 - Error: ROM File ROMID is not compatible with existing BIOS ROMID"So I went ahead and ran the AFUDOS file without all the parameters in the batch file and everything updated fine. But I am still having troubles with the USB 3.0 controller and the process just seemed to be fairly complex.Both my HP's and three other Dell's had Flash BIOS programs, or simple instructions that worked with no problems. Was I just getting lucky with them and there is some hidden UEFI and/or MS-DOS secret ritual that I am missing here ?Am I perhaps using the incorrect BIOS update file - and if so which one should I use ?  Thanks,-Bil

Is this an AMI BIOS.
If so, and you can get the new BIOS onto a floppy, there is a possibility you may still be able to flash the new BIOS.

HI,I have a yoga2 pro, with Bios 76CN27WW running Windown 10. I'm trying to update to the latest version, 76CN43WW. However upon running the installer, after the command for InsydeFlash64, I get an error message that no ROM are available in the folder. There clearly is a ROM, since I simply extracted the Lenovo bios files and that went normally. Tried with administrator mode, redownloading, and I always get this error.  I read on some HP forum that seems to use the same BIOS update tool that this is caused by the new bios not recognizing the very old one I have installed, and not letting me upgrade. However, I can't find any links of 'intermedidate' versions on the lenovo site that I could use as a step to bring this to the latest.  Any ideas? Thanks

From what I understand  your notebook works fine when using English keyboard layout, but does not work as expected if you change to Spanish keyboard layout.
 
Check your BIOS for a language or region setting and adjust as needed.  Also - look in control panel for keyboard settings and install additional keboard layout for Spanish.
 
Good luck.

Hi Guys,
Hoping someone here can help me with some ideas for fixing my problem.

I have a Toshiba A70 notebook and the thing wont boot up and it has had various other issues like the power jack was broken. I ordered another motherboard and replaced the motherboard. I also have tested the locked screen and connections on another identical computer. I also tested the keypad and touchpad on another notebook and they all work fine.

I have also tested the hdd and optical drive and they work no problems on the other notebook.

In desperation I swapped out the processor for another one I had and same problems. The processor in there was a 3.0ghz processor and the one I swapped it for is a 1.8ghz.

So I turn the unit on and the light around the power button goes on and the fans and drive sound as though they are spinning up and three seconds later it goes quiet as normal. On a working computer this is when the Toshiba splash screen will come up but nothing is displayed. I tried using a torch to see if it was the backlight and I have confirmed that the lcd unit as a whole works. I also tried the vga adapter and an external monitor and same.

So if anyone is familiar with this issue or has any suggestions then they would be greatly appreciated.

Answer:Toshiba Notebook Wont Boot To Bios

Did it work before you put in the new processor?

Does it work if you put back the old processor?

The problems you are facing are probaly a result of whatever you changed. You could need to flash the bios to handle the new processor.

But it does sound like a LCD Backlight problem but you confirmed it's not.

Try checking the processor compatability.

I should not have to pay any fees to get my PC working again as it was working perfectly before this upgrade attempt. I did nothing wrong.

Hi spiralvista,

> I have read somewhere that you can make a bootable USB flash BIOS recovery
Yes, I did read about such threads here in forum but it doesn?t always work and there is no official support for this procedure. Everything what you do with such BIOS recovery tools happen on your own risk and in worst case you could destroy the whole ROM module.

Best option would be contacting an authorized service provider because the guys can have professional tools to reflash the ROM module where the BIOS is stored. So you should get in contact with the guys and ask for help. They can also tell you how much it will cost.

Sorry that I can?t give you another answer but here it?s an user to user forum only where you can talk with normal people like you and me ? Nobody from Toshiba here ;)

Hi everyone,I have a severe problem (I guess) after the latest BIOS Update. Windows 7 freezes during startup.I own a 64-bit Lenovo FLex 2 15D with AMD A6-6310 and R4, 4GB RAM and a SSHD (8GBSSH). I purchased it without OS and installed Windows 7 - which worked fine so far.I yesterday updated the BIOS with version 9FCN23WW (for Win7 and Win8), the latest BIOS update. A mistake, it seems.After Reboot, I first had to disable Secure Boot in the BIOS, because it would not let me boot at all. I figured out how to get into the BIOS-Setup to disable this (press Enter 2x, press Tab when in the Boot Menu to access the "Apps Menu", then "SETUP" - just in case this helps someone).Now Win7 begins to start up, but freezes during the startup process (the splash screen with the win flag freezes and looks a bit strange. I used the "protected mode" Windows Startup and saw that the process always hangs when loading "amdkmpfd.sys".That is basically it.I guess I have to find a way to re-install the previous version of the BIOS, but I have no idea how!Any idea?!.......Now about what I did to fix this (poor, but I tried):If I try to start from a Win7 installation CD-ROM (actually it is one for Dell PCs, but I guess that is not the problem) and press a key to boot from CD, Windows loads files, shows "Starting Windows"  and at a certain point again just freezes.

Answer:Boot Fail after latest BIOS Update on Flex 2-15D

I found our the solution to my problem with the help of SebastianLenovo ... In the BIOS / Boot Mode, I switched back from "UEFI" to "Legacy". That's it. That simple. The BIOS Upgrade routine just did not transfer that setting from the old BIOS to the new. Given the fact that 1. I did not change that setting, so it is default and 2. it would have been easy to avoid, if the BIOS update routine would be well programmed to transfer the current BIOS settings to the new, upgraded BIOS ... Anyway a strange situation that a 64-bit system has a 32-bit BIOS. Actually no Linux distribution (except FatDog and rescue systems) are able to deal with it - Linux only running as a Virtual Machine under Windows. I think this is inappropriate and really taking away a part of the fun if you can not run this laptop as a dual boot system. Thanks to Sebastian and I hope this solution helps someone in the future... Regards, Tristam.

One of my programming courses uses software which requires hardware acceleration.  In order for me to enable hardware acceleration on my Laptop (Thinkpad T510), I had to update the Intel AMT file which prompted me to update the bios to the latest version.  After the installation, my laptop restarted.  I believe, this is a failed bios update, because my laptop cannot get past the "Initializing Intel(R) Boot Agent Ge v1.3.51 PXE 2.1 Build 089 (WfM 2.0)" I am unable to select what device to boot from and inserting a bootable bios cd does not work. Disabling Intel AMT on the Bios Configuration does not change anything, Disabling the external network rom on the bios, does get rid of the message, but I am still unable to get any further.  I've reset the CMOS battery and the settings/clock were reset to default. However, I am still unable to get past get past the "Initializing Intel(R) Boot Agent..." I?ve attempted to create a Phoenix Crisis Rescue USB.  I?ve followed these instructions I found here (http://forum.thinkpads.com/viewtopic.php?t=100330 & http://forum.thinkpads.com/viewtopic.php?f=46&t=107098) to retrieve the FL1 file from the T510 bios utility .exe file.  I've used the crisis package to convert the FL1 file into the bios.wph file. After formatting the 2GB usb as FAT, I used the WinCrisis software in XP compatibility mode to flash the usb. The software said the recovery disk was successfully created, but only 64kb was ...

Hi,
Any advice?
I have a 9010 SFF that was working fine, except that it would not install the Windows 10 Anniversary Update.  Repeatedly, about 30% through the update it failed with a BSOD. I tried several times.
Somewhere I read that the BIOS might need updating so I headed over to DELL support.  I let the website automatically detect my system and it found a recommended BIOS update, version A24.
I initiated the BIOS update from the website and it seemed to run successfully but when the PC rebooted it hung half way through POST.
On a second attempt to start the machine - nothing - no display, no light, just will not start.
I tried clearing the NVRAM as indicated on the DELL website here: www.dell.com/.../SLN284985
I tried both the RTCRST jumper method and the battery removal method.
The result - it now continuously reboots but still no POST, no display, nothing.
I should add that during the original BIOS update, the PC had a Quadro 600 graphics card and a LSI 9200-8e SAS adapter card inside. They had both been working faultlessly and were removed when I tried to reset the BIOS NVRAM.
Any suggests on what next to recover my "bricked" desktop?
Andy

I use my X200 tablet as my primary work computer (I run my own business but I am NOT an IT guy).  I've had my X200 for a year now and love it.  The last few days I ran into an annoying problem where the tablet would take several minutes to boot up while the Win7 screen would tell me not to shut off my PC because updates were being configured, with 0% progress until the computer finally just gave up and started regularly.  This was really annoying because it happened twice when I was trying to load up a presentation in front of an audience, and I had to dance around and waste everyone's time while the computer waited for Windows to do its thing.  I think it took so long because I didn't have have an internet connection and it couldn't configure the updates.  In hindsight, I think I should've simply turned off Automatic Updates. So yesterday I decided to log in as Admin and use the Thinkvantage utility to see if I was missing some important software.  Only one critical item turned up - a recommended BIOS update that would fix a no-boot problem if I ever let the battery drain completely (never had that problem).  So I clicked the link, was directed to Lenovo's website, and downloaded the appropriate 32-bit BIOS update installer for my system, and began the BIOS update process, knowing full well that one should never turn off a computer while the BIOS is being re-written.  It was partially through the update when I made the mistake of ...

Got to windows tried to add more generic software(chrome, etc). Totally Forgot to add drivers so i couldn't really do much until i fixed that. I added all those and figured might as well update the bios while I'm at it.

Bios flash fail. I used acer software and bios from their site(the newest version). No interuptions during the update or anything like that. Everything SEEMED to have gone fine.

1 no battery add usb(with the bios in root directory)

After researching a bit, I realized what may have happened. I remember awhile before it stopped working the "update windows" window on my lower right that said it would restart in a couple mins. Then I clicked postpone 4hrs, and that 4 hrs may have occured during the duration i closed the lid.

Laptop wont load bios or OS

Interesting issue here.
When I press the power button, the HD activity led light comes on for just a second, I feel the HD spinning up and running, the fan kicks in and runs, then nothing. No leds flahing, just power led, no beeps, no screen and no bios.
I'v discharged static build up (battery out, power button held down 30") and tried both mains & battery to no effect. There were no precursors to this issue.
So I can deduce the laptop is unable to complete POST in pre bios, despite the lack of beeps yet can supply power to fan & HD.
Now the GPU is GForce 8400m GS, aware of the issues with the 8xxx series, I'v kept the air flow clean and use a laptop cooler. Possible suspect though it never ran hot and all worked fine till I turned on a couple of days ago. Now I understood that a failure of the 8xxx series usually presented a degraded screen, lines etc rather than failing post.
I'm backed up and use my second laptop so nothing urgent, just a oportunity to learn.
I am interested in hearing from hardware geeks and their thoughts.

I reinstalled my Windows fresh and was operating perfectly, after attempting to dual boot the machine with Ubuntu 12:04 which failed miserablly the Windows also has become so that it takes exactly 6 minutes 16 seconds to boot up. the ubuntu that i tried to install Fails completely.

So as it is a new fresh Windows also I thought no bother, I just reinstall Windows again, so went into the bios and told it to boot up from CD and I though Bobs yer uncle in a few minuts. NO. the machine booted up again via HDD at the same pace of 6.16 minutes.....
Thought ok, just stick the win 7 cd in and click the Setup.exe file.... that should sort it, except under my Computer Shows up no CD/DVD Rom device.

I looked into the device Manager next and in reality there are no cd/DVD Rom device listed and no Option to introduce one, under add new Hardware everything under the sun Comes up listed but CD Rom devices.

So I thought you know what go into command promt and Format c: manually and then put the cd in, that should work because the bios has detected the cd Rom.... except the machine refuses to Format c; drive at allll cost.

ran MSconfig next to try and sort it there but I was just as unsuccessful there as the rest.

Answer:Toshiba satellite bios detects cd/dvd rom but windows 7 ultimate wont,

The CD ROM problem may be a driver problem. Look at the Toshiba site whether they have a driver.

Your slow boot is probably caused by the remaining Grub. But that can be fixed. Post a picture of your Disk Management and we'll see what can be done.

Formatting the disk from within the OS does not work because the system protects itself.

Next time tou want to install Ubuntu, put it into a virtual partition. That is a lot easier. Here is a tutorial on how to do that. It is for Zorin which is an Ubuntu derivative and it works the same for Ubuntu. Only the VMware Tools installation needs different commands. Try those:

Usually the VAP (value added package) needs to be installed in order to update the BIOS.
Is VAP installed? If yes, try to update or reinstall this package again and check if BIOS update is possible.
Furthermore disable any security software like firewall or antivirus software which could prevent the BIOS update.
