How to remove BIOS password on Toshiba Satellite Pro M30
Message was edited by: Admin
I'm afraid to tell you, but for this, you have to contact local ASP.
Because it is not that easy or possible the way you would do this on deskopt PCs.
This is why you have to take your machine to ASP. The guys there can remove the password.
I have a satellite pro L series laptop which I switched on today and its asking me for a password which I have no idea what it is. I don't ever remember setting up a bios password as I never go in to the bios and I have certainly not had to put in a Bios password previously.
Is there anyway around this as I now have a prety expensive paperweight?
We cannot explain to you what was happen with your notebook but fact is that BIOS password cannot be set from alone. Maybe someone else has access to your notebook and have done this to make you angry, who knows.
BIOS password is very important security feature and removal procedure is kind of ?top secret? information and we cannot discuss about it on public forum. What you must do now is to contact nearest Toshiba service provider and ask for help. They can remove it for you.
I have a toshiba p55-a5312 that some how got a bios password set on it. I'm a computer technician but can't seem to tell where the jumpers are on this one. I've scoured the internet and can't find anything on the P series, only other ones like A and C. Can anyone help with with this? I've tried removing the CMOS battery alone and laptop battery and other things and nothing seems to work so there's gotta be a jumper. Almost everything on the Mobo is labeled with like PXXXX, X's being numbers. I can provide pictures if it will help.
I updated the bios after I had notified from Toshiba about the Bios v3.50. The process was done by the Toshiba Utility software, and after the reboot there is "Password =" on a blank screen and it not recognise my BIOS password, writing "Not certified".
I have also tried the HDD password but no luck.
What can I do now?
Before trying to update the BIOS, all passwords should be removed!
BIOS password can be removed by authorized service provider available in your country.
But the unknown HDD password cannot be removed anymore.
In such case the HDD isn?t accessible and cannot be used.
Sorry mate but in my opinion you have only one chance to get the BIOS password removed; you need the ASP assistance.
I'm having a problem with a Toshiba Satellite L300D. After I reinstalled the HDD it would beep. To solve this I went into BIOS to look and see if the board had some sort of intrusion setting. When I exited the BIOS and restarted I know get the Enter Current Password (with a blue background on a black screen) with continuos beeps. The thing is it seems to auto enter in 10 characters (*) and then stop. There are no other options.
I have searched unsuccessfully for any info about this and I cant even find where the CMOS is located which I think is soldered onto the board.
Has anybody had any similar experience like this?
I would really appreciate any help its driving me crazy.

I hope I can receive some help here since the Toshiba in my country is not reachable in any way. Toshiba's bios software screwed up my laptop, its asking for a bios password I never set. I am really upset at this. I called Toshiba in my country about this, mailed them, try to start a ticket. Nothing, there is no help at all. Because of their software I cannot use my laptop and no one helps me to get this right.
I have never dealt with a problem like this before. Making me think that the whole Toshiba company and their products are sh*t.
I came here to the forums as a last resort. Can someone help me with this bios password problem? Is it even asking for a password or perhaps some special code? I have been googling about this problem for days by now since I have received no help.
My laptop is toshiba satellite C55-A-1DC.
This morning i was going to sell my laptop as I am buying a new one but there is no rush.
However, I have been told that I need to remove the initial password. Which I had been told is "BIOS password". To confuse everything, I have also been told it is not a BIOS password. #confused
However, regardless of trying to contact Toshiba non of the U.K. Numbers are working and the email no reply. I had followed the guidance from that website on Toshiba and tried numerous of time all day.
I want this first password removed that comes up, when I switch on my laptop.
I did not put this on my computer it happened with the upgrade. I know the password but I did not install this or remember setting this password.
Can someone contact me please and help solve this matter.
after water spill the laptop asked for bios password which can be bypassed by pressing enter many times.
the problem is how to remove this restriction becuase there is no password actually, I do updated the bios but the problem still there.
is there is a way to reset the bios password from within windows???
any help is appreciated and thanks in advance
I am having a Toshiba laptop (Model No. Satellite M30-742), purchased on 26th May 2004.
But I forgot the CMOS Password.
Without entering the correct password it is not possible to boot the laptop.
I have also contacted at your service centre "Redington India" located at Kanpur (India) .
But they are unable to solve my problem.
I know my laptop is now out of warranty.
So i am ready to pay for it.
Please help me to start my laptop.
Laptop Model Satellite M30-742
Model Part Number PSM30E-7100V-EN
Serial No. 44095636P
Operating System Windows XP
The unknown BIOS password cannot be removed/deleted easily.
The unknown BIOS password can be removed ONLY by a Toshiba authorized service provider.
From my knowledge the Satellite M30-742 PSM30E-7100V-EN was released in Europe (probably for UK market)
So probably you will need to contact the Toshiba ASP available in UK in order to remove the BIOS password.
Here you can find a link to all Toshiba ASPs available world wide:
I was hoping someone on here could help me out, I have a relative who's laptop - a SATELLITE C55D-A-14W is now asking for a BIOS PASSWORD at boot. They're insisting they never set one nor would know how to. They reckon it was last installing updates of some sort. I was thinking of the possibility of it's maybe been installing a BIOS update and hasn't went quite right and is now therefor corrupt? I've had a look around the motherboard from under the memory covers etc. to see if there's any jumpers - I remember years ago you could short a couple of jumpers and it would force reset the BIOS but no joy. I searched around the web too and couldn't find an indication what the jumpers might be for this particular model. Is this possible anymore? Or could I somehow force re-flash the BIOS in the hopes that might cure it?
Please guys any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance!
I have a laptop M40X-112. I enabled the HDD password in BIOS. How safe is this? Can the HDD be read in another PC? Is the data encrypted on the HDD? Whichever method is used?
This text was translated by Google, I hope it is correct ...
HDD Password is stored in the HDD unit itself.
So even the HDD unit is removed from one computer and attached to another, the HDD password is required to access it.
_Here are some details:_

Note: you will not be able to access the HDD if you forget the password! So be careful with that!

Take a look in to the FAQ area:
How do I delete a BIOS Password if I have forgotten it?
I decided to revive my old laptop Toshiba SP 4280 but can't get to the system because it is asking me a passowrd at the beginning.
I've tryied to take out a battery from the Moser Board for 24h - but it has not helped.
I've tryed some backdoor passwords, like Toshiba,toshy99 but it has not helped.
I've sucessfully upgraded BIOS to the newest one 2.70-TRAD but it is still asking me for a password.
Could you help me please with this problem?
What can I do ?
BTW I can't enter to BIOS setup and select the source to load (Hard, FD or CD) because I have to enter a password at first.
Thanks a lot!
Unfortunately I think only an authorized service provider can help you to get rid of the password because they have special tools to do this and know how to do it. Maybe some jumpers must be set but I don?t know?
On the Toshiba website you can find a list of ASPs? Give them a call and ask for help, that?s all! ;)
Is it possible to disable BIOS password on Pro A120 laptop?
I know the password, but I can't delete it. I tried both through Password Utility on Windows and through BIOS, and in both I can change the password, but not disable it (i get DELETION DENIED message).
Thanks in advance.
> Is it possible to disable BIOS password on A120 laptop?
Of course its possible?
But you have to know the old, set password.
> I know the password, but I can't delete it.
First of all you have to type the old password.
Then in two further windows, you have to confirm with the ENTER button.
Then safe the changes and exit the BIOS.

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.
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.4 more replies
I purchased a used Satellite x200 to replace my old p100.
When I received it, I remarked the bios is locked and the person I got it from is unable to tell me the password, arguing she used the finger imprint only four long.
Is there a way to reset the bios password and how much would it cost?
The BIOS password can be removed only by an authorized service provider in country where you live.
So get in contact with Toshiba service partner and ask for BIOS password reset.

i was wondering if someone could tell me why when reseting the bios password via jumpers on motherboard is it stated that 1 of the 2 memory sticks should be left in the FIRST slot (the one furthest from motherboard)?
I ask because the top/FIRST memory slot on the motherboard of my laptop (please see title) is broken.
Can I perform try to reset by leaving a memory stick in the second slot (closest to the motherboard)?
Many many thanks
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
3. The procedure you appear to refer to, irrespective of where you found it is - I would think part of a suggested method when you do NOT know the password.
4. If that is the case, then one of the rules of this site is
Passwords - Please do not ask for assistance with (or ways to bypass) a forgotten or unknown password, personal identification number (PIN) or any other type of access code that may be required on a computer, mobile device or web site.

l can't use my laptop anymore, Toshiba P50-A-12Z, Intel Core i7 Haswell, 2013, since 6months, in the beginning of august.
At that time, l created a Blos password to prevent people from accessing my Computer. On boot, after type my pwd and hit "return" the display become blank and unresponsive and the computer is turned off after one minute.
I called Toshiba support which advised me to press and hold 20 sec. a button on the motherboard, turned the Computer on when it's plugged, but Blosis not reinitialized. Password still asked, still not booting.
l was used to resetting 90s desktop pcs with their Jumpers and round batteries but l can't find something similar here. The round battery is un accessible, it is protected inside a little black bag. Some Forums on the Internet talk about resetting Toshiba Satellites but their solutions date back to the 2000s. There is Nothing for a 2013 P50.
Their advice is somehow difficult:short circuit a pin or jumper while turning on. JP8 Or JRST 2001, 2002 or 2501. undert he RAM or eIsewhere. But l don't know how to short-circuit a place on the motherboard.
I can Find those JRST on the accessible side of my motherboard, but there is no visible corresponding pin or Jumper, please See My attached photos.

I'm now digging some time arround to find a solution for my problem.
I have a "locked" Toshiba Satellite Click Mini (L9W-B) convertible.
Somehow is there now a "startup password" on it.
Im not sure if it is a BIOS/UEFI but I think so.
The prompt apears right after the Toshiba Logo.
I'm not sure what exactly has happend,
the tablet has layed quite a time arround in my wifes desk.
(And the battery was drained, obviously.)
So I have two theories.
My wife has set accidentally a password ==> (But she said she never has done something like that. And I couldn't remember to set any password...)Or somehow the passord was "enabled" by the power drop
Because on the first time after charging it has brought a message, that the cmos date&time was wrong and are now set to default, or so.
- I couldn't remember the exact words.
But I never heard of this kind of behaivior of a Notebook/PC before.
Can somebody confirm that this is a UEFI password prompt?
Is there a way to clear the bios/uefi?
(Like on Laptops/desktop you can clear it by a jumper or removing the CMOS battery.)
I'm not sure if the Click Mini has a TPM device on it. ==> This would mean the device is now garbage?
I've tried to get into the boot menu (like described for for the other Toshiba Windows Encore Tablets),
but this hasn't worked until now.

Hi. Does anyone know how to reset the BIOS password for a Toshiba Satellite C660D 19X please? There are a number of very good YouTube videos for almost identical models, but they don't work on this one. The motherboard has changed a bit, and the reset jumpers don't seem to be in quite the same place, if they still exist. This video very nearly has the answer, but it's not quite right for the particular model variant I need:

I think it's very likely there is a similar answer to this problem - it just needs the right person to answer it. Thanks.
You want to reset it, or remove it? Once you enter the original password, there should be an option to do either, but I am not familiar with Toshiba's bios. But you will need the original password.
I have a HP 17-f020us 17.3-Inch Touchscreen Laptop with window 8. I dont what to have to remove the battery to do this. Way to much for me to try to do. I would like to know how to do it through the Bios.

I have installed an anti-theft software in my Satellite R830, but it suggests that I adjust the settings in the BIOS so that it will only boot up from the hard drive, and to ensure no one else can alter it (if stolen) the BIOS settings are password protected.
Can anyone tell me how to access the BIOS settings on boot up?
You can secure the BIOS settings by setting the BIOS password.
If someone would like to change the BIOS settings, the BIOS password would be required.

I want to use the Crisis Recovery Disk with an USB floppy drive but I don't know the key combination to run the boot-block.
Is anybody can help me?
I wondering what Crisis Recovery Disk do you have ?:|
In my experience the special disk is needed which is available only for ASP technician.
Therefore it?s necessary to contact the ASP in your country in order to reflash the BIOS.
In my opinion you shouldn?t not try any ?Crisis Recovery disks? which you fond in the net? this can lead to mobo damage?
My Sat M30 laptop start with an bios error. The error says "Resource conflict, edit bios setting or boot" If select "boot" computer hangs before windows completely starts. I remove the wi-fi and the modem module and the same error appears. I can't upgrade the bios because the windows don't start. The bios version is 1.7. The laptop is UK version. If select "edit bios", bios start but I can't find any resource management.
(sorry for my english, I am from Spain)
I think the error ?edit bios setting? means that you should access the BIOS and should set the BIOS back to the default settings.
Please do this, save the settings and try to boot up!

You know very well that BIOS password is very important security feature so we cannot discuss about this in public forum. At least you cannot expect that we can discuss about it on Toshiba forum.
BIOS password is important for many notebook owners who want to protect their notebooks and saved data. This explanation here can be abused and every stolen notebook with BIOS protection can be ?unlocked?.
Toshiba service provider in your country can help you with this.

Hi, If you know the current password, you can remove it as follows. Shut down the notebook. Tap away at the esc key as soon as you press the power button to access the Start-up menu and then select f10 to enter the Bios menu. Use the arrow keys to highlight the Security tab and hit enter. Use the arrow keys again to highlight power on password and hit enter. Enter the current password and then for the new password, just leave this blank and hit enter - do the same for the confirmation field. Press f10, select to save the new settings and hit enter. If you don't know the current password ( or it's not working ) then at the password screen, hit enter 3 times and you should receive a 'halt code' - post back with this code.

You'll have to reset everything in the BIOS configuration.
Open the computer's case
Find the battery on the motherboard
Remove the battery
Wait a minute or so (to make sure that the m-board's xompnents have powered down)
Start the computer
Go into the BIOS settings program
Set up the BIOS
Some motherboards have a jumper on the board - a jumper which, when shorted (or lengthened ), will erase the BIOS settings. For details, RT your motherboard's FM.
Yes, that means that anyone who can crack open the case can override YOUR BIOS password.

All my passwords won't work, so how can I reset the password?
Please help me :)
I never heard that BIOS password can be enabled alone so I?m really wondering how it can happen on your Tecra M5.
You must understand that BIOS password is very important security protection and we cannot discuss in public forum about this.
BIOS removal procedure is not always the same and Tecra, as business notebook model, has pretty complicated BIOS removal procedure and it can be done by Toshiba service provider only.
I have a Tecra A3x which died before Christmas. I purchased a replacement motherboard from eBay. I have fitted the mother board and the unit powers up fine but stop at a password screen that is plain black. I have tried to look for a way to wipe the BIOS and have taken the CMOS battery off for about 10 mins. I have read that most laptops have a jumper built in too fix this. I have looked under the usual places - memory modules etc. I can?t find this anywhere.
Any help would be very welcomed.
As you probably know BIOS password is very important security feature and BIOS password removal cannot be described on manufacturer?s public forum. It is a kind of ?top secret? information.
It is not logic to do this, right?
Every stolen Tecra A3X with BIOS password could be ?unlocked?.
In my opinion you should contact person who sold you this mainboard and ask for password. If he cannot help, send it back. Was this info in product description on his ebay offer?

It's Toshiba NB500 -00D with Windows 7 Starter. I can't get past the bios password. Any tips or suggestion? Or I'm really stuck?
You are going have to contact Toshiba and ask if they have or use a Master Password for their BIOS.
Otherwise, you are SOL (Sorry Out of Luck).

I have a Dell Latitude D630. It has an admin password for the bios. Nothing is locked except for the settings. I can't change any of the settings in the bios. It lets me boot to windows just fine though. My question is, since I don't know that admin password for the bios, if I upgrade the bios firmware, will the admin password be deleted? Since I'm flashing the bios, I would think that all the settings will be lost. Is that the case?
Didn't you reply here, and say it worked (after the unusual 9th try ) http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic109612-109.html#post747024
A bios update can't remove passwords. As You Must Know
Oh and thanks for the extended long Title. I'm thinking this Topic of yours would be best removed? What do you think?
I am trying to install a fresh copy of windows 10 but currently it doesn not show any option to boot from usb. Only two options are available i.e. OS boot manager, BOOT from EFI file. To change the boot order, I need to go into BIOS but it asks for administrator password.I dont recall setting the BIOS password on my latop, yet I have tried some of the passwords mentioned on the forums but neither of them worked. I cannot remove CMOS battery which is one of the solution, as it requires to me to dismantle the laptop.Kindly suggest me any solution as I haven't been able to figure it out from any other sources.Note: USB is made bootable and is working perectly on other pc.System info:-HP envy m6-K015dxWindows 10

Hello everyone! I've been searching around for a solution to this issue I've having but haven't found a thread that relates to my particular situation, so help would be greatly appreaciated. I installed HP ProtectTools on a laptop and it configured BIOS to require a password before booting up. I decided that I didn't want that setup and since it was a fresh image of windows, a re-image would be a quicker and easier fix to this issue. However, the BIOS security features still remain and now all the previous software the was used to setup the BIOS security is no longer on the laptop. How can I go about removing this security feature now that I've re-imaged the laptop? ThanksMore replies
My little brother has gave that Dell inspiron n4110 BIOS a password and now he has forgot it. I know I can remove that password by opening the laptop but I don't want to open it. I can access to the OS which is Windows 7 and also can reinstall OSs by pressing F12 key, but when I want to go into the BIOS setup (which I should press the F2 key for that) that password is required. I've heard there are some codes removing that but I'm not sure is it real or not.
Any solution for that laptop?
Dell have recently added additional security to some of their laptop range - if you have somehow triggered this security you will have to contact Dell, and supply them with full details of the laptop, including serial and reference and full proof of purchase - they can then remove the password free of charge9 more replies

Hello , I have a Dell Inspiron 530 running Windows Vista Home. I am trying to access the system BIOS and it has a red password log in screen. I tried to guess and enter several log in passwords including the word DELL and none of them worked. I didn't want to enter too many wrong passwords because I didn't know if the system would lock me out. Can anyone help me by pass the BIOS log in password or some how disable it ? Thank You in advance.
Thank you for writing to Dell Community Forum.
Request you to contact Dell team for the BIOS password either via DellTechCenter in Facebook or @DellCaresPRO on Twitter and they will be able to provide you a BIOS password once the ownership of the system is confirmed.
Do reach back for any query.

Hello to the BleepingComputer community,First of all I'm sorry I haven't finished some of the steps from the Preparation Guide. It's because these steps require a reboot (e.g. Step 6: Disable your CD Emulation Software - DeFogger will ask me to reboot the machine), and I have a bad feeling about the question if it is safe to reboot in my situation: I'm not sure if I have a type of malware which is ready to infect the BIOS - if it is so, then it could infect it much easier during the reboot process.- If there is a good way to find out what is the problem (and fix the BIOS threat part if it really is present) without rebooting / shutting down this PC, or at least without booting from this hard drive (which I feel is probably infected), then please tell me what should I do.- If you know a place / forum where I can get a specialized help for this (seemingly BIOS-malware related) situation, please tell me where I could go.- If there is no way to move forward, I'll go ahead and risk the reboot, and follow the other steps (steps 6 to 10) in the Preparation Guide, no problem.I kindly ask you to please read below the details of the problem as it occured to me, and the things I have tried so far.The PC is AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core BE-2350 2.1GHz, Motherboard Biostar TA690G AM2 (with AWARD BIOS), 4GB RAM, 200GB SATA HDD, and an ASUS EAH4870 card added a few years ago.It's with WinXP SP3, AVG Free 2012, (standard) Windows Firewall, and it's behind a router.I ...

I have an R830-1GZ Bios version 3.70 EC Version 1.50
And also a R630- 138 BIOS version 2.20 EC Version 1.60 (this is the most up to date version for this discontinued model.)
The former will recognise my WD storage for what it is - ie an external HDD. And the boot priority in the bios shows it below the internal HDD - which is what you would expect for correct operation.
The latter (R630) will always try to boot from the WD storage. It does not show the WD HDD in the Bios Boot priority list.
I can continue to unplug and replug the usb cable into the R630 - but it is a nuisance. I'm sure the problem is down to the BIOS not being new enough. What would be the likely result of flashing the 3.70 version - designed for the R830, onto the R630?
I'm expecting to be told it will make the R630 inoperable. But these laptops are very similar, so I'm hoping someone might have a more hopeful response.
Thanks for your help
First of all:
you can download only the Toshiba win based BIOS from Toshiba EU driver page.
This means that you can update the BIOS only while running the windows system.
it would not be possible to update the R830 BIOS onto the R630 since there is a protection which would break up the flash process because of compatibility issue.
You could damage the notebook if you would still try to update the wrong BIOS (maybe using the traditional BIOS version, USB version, etc?)
So this is really bad, bad idea doing this?

How remove password BIOS(Admin password & canfigure setup),
Turn off computer. Find the battery on the motherboard. Take it out for a couple minutes. Put it back in and restart computer. This should reset cmos and solve your problem.
Right before this problem happened, I had suddenly experienced a weird screen glitch and knew to restart my computer. Now, it asks for a BIOS admin or power on password which I did not set. What the heck is going on, and what could I do to fix this?? --WHAT-I-HAVE-TRIED--I have tried "12345"I have tried a blank fieldI have tried "biosPower"-------------------------- --COMPUTER-INFO--Product: HP Stream Notebook 11 (no touchscreen)Product version: 8.1 (x64 architecture)---------------------- If I need to put any more info, just ask.

I reinstalled the OS and setup the biometric security for me, which has worked flawlessly! However I stupidly also set up the boot up security (BIOS Password). So when the tablet gets turned on I can scan my finger and get in without any issues, however I now want to turn the boot up security off. So I booted it in to the OS and went to disable it....however it asks for my password....which I have forgot as I have been a typical end user and have been only using my bloody finger!
Does anyone know if I can disable the BIOS security while in the OS using the biomentric security rather than entering a password? I have tried just changing the admin password within the win OS but that doesn't work....any ideas?
Any help with be greatly appreciated!
> So I booted it in to the OS and went to disable it....however it asks for my password....which I have forgot as I have been a typical end user and have been only using my bloody finger!
You are speaking about BIOS password which you set up in the BIOS?
As far as I know you cannot remove the BIOS password if you don?t know the old BIOS password.
In such case just the Toshiba ASP could help you? just the Toshiba ASP technician could remove the unknown BIOS password
Upgrading MK4026GAX drive to MK8032MAG on my Satellite Pro L20 but the bios will not recognise the MK8032GAX but laptop finds it if connected as external drive ( even disk management ) but as an internal hard drive the bios not not recognise it.
I even cloned the drive but bios will not recognise it , even before cloning and formatting it correctly bios will not recognise the MK8032GAX drive . I'm assured they are compatible and I believe that the new MK8032GAX drive is not corrupted because all data on it can be accessed as external drive.
After replacing an old HDD with a new SSD Samsung (EVO 250 GB) on a TOSHIBA Satellite M70-160 (cloning went fine with Acronics true image), I got a PXE error-no boot file received (computer was trying to boot from LAN).
I went to bios (ver 1.10) and see that computer didn't see any HDD drive at all (indication None was next to the HDD).
There isn't any case to hardware problem (S ATA pins of new SSD are very tight to motherboard).
The hole idea was to keep for a 1-2 year more, my windows xp system. . . . (my old HDD is a Fujitsu MHV2080BH with a SATA connector. . . ).

i am looking for a BIOS for the PS210E 00C3G GR Notebook.
Hopefully it will run on a Floppy Disk as Start disk.
Can anyone help me?
You can find BIOS in BIOS download page under http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com/innovation/download_bios.jsp
Your old notebook is listed in ARCHIVE.
Unfortunately there is WIN BIOS update only. That means this BIOS update can be executed in running WXP only.
Anyway, I have uploaded 1.40 version on http://www.megaupload.com/?d=4KCW8O3N
Check it out.

Sorry to hear this. Unfortunately I?m afraid BIOS is screwed up and you will not be able to recover it.
On this forum I found one interesting thread - http://forums.computers.toshiba-europe.com/forums/thread.jspa?threadID=54395
Check it out. Maybe it will help. If not I?m afraid you need professional help with it.
I am using a Satellite Pro PSM35E which has a Phoenix BIOS v1.70. I want to update it but on whole Toshiba website can't find one?
The Satellite Pro M30 notebook belongs to the PSM35E series.
I checked the Toshiba European driver page and found the BIOS.
You have to choose *ARCHIVE -> Satellite Pro archive -> Satellite Pro M -> Satellite Pro M30 -> BIOS*
There you will find the needed BIOS
trying to do my first laptop BIOS upgrade on my M10 running bios 1.40. dated 2003.
I have downloaded version 1.50 windows based update and when extract the zip file and it starts to run I get "Toshiba common modules is not installed".
So back to the driver downloads and download Common Modules cmod-en20071113104042 and install. Ran the BIOS update again and I get the same Common Modules not installed.
Can anybody shed any light on my problems?
The machine is running a clean install of XP professional Service pack 3 and has BIOS version 1.40 and 512MB RAM.
I want to upgrade the RAM and have read on Toshiba that with bios update the M10 supports 2GB of RAM.
At the minute when I go to crucial.com and scan the system I am told max support is 1 gig.
Any Answers or help would be gratefully received.
At first I must say that BIOS update will not change anything with RAM support. It depends on hardware platform and not on BIOS update. So it will not help at all. Your notebook can handle with 2 GB RAM max. End of the story.
Satellite Pro M10 is pretty old notebook model and I am 100% sure BIOS update, as a file, is OK but at this time there was no SP3 and I can imagine there is the problem.
So if you are satisfied how your notebook works leave it and enjoy this oldie. Do not need BIOS update at all.
