YOu've reinstalled Windows using a Retail disk, taher than the manufacturer's recovery media - and used the Key you found with a KeyFinder, or on the internet, rather than teh Key on your COA sticker.

Assuming y your COA sticker is for Windows 7 Home Premium, use the link at teh bottom of the System properties page to change the Key to the one on your sticker and you should be OK.

Hi, First time poster here. I am just recently having issues with my computer saying windows it not genuine. I found this forum through another thread of a person who had basically the exact same issues as I did here: Windows Genuine and Activation Issue

I too bought this PC originally from best buy or some place, and it came with no windows CD or anything. I went 2 years without formatting, finally I got sick of it and when I installed my new SSD I finally had to do it. The best advice I found was doing the same as OP, downloading the copy of windows from digital rivers and entering in my windows key(which I had lost as well but recovered using one of the software tools).

I installed windows about 4-5 weeks ago, I have rebooted many times since and only in the last day did it start giving me this same windows it not genuine error. Upon trying to validate my key it will error out, and I get the same

code:
0xc004F063
the software licensing service reported that the computer BIOS is missing a required license

How can I take this key from the side of my computer case and make windows genuine again? Someone in another post I found said something about a command "wmic bios get serialnumber" and thats the same exact number that comes up thats on the side of my case. Is this the right one, or should I be looking inside the case for ANOTHER key that fits the windows key length? The key off the side of my machine is only about 10 digits and I am un sure ...

A:Windows not Genuine, Validating gives error 0xc004F063 Bios license

Sorry for posting in haste without taking the time to properly look over everything. I found ANOTHER sticker which had the proper key further back on my computer base that was listed as win7 home premium OA HP with a totally different windows key which I just entered via the system change product key and it authenticated as genuine. Big thank you to this community for the knowledge that was already right in front of my face!

For others having this issue, Hopefully your sticker is still intact and readable. If you are getting this same issue, Just find the sticker on your computer or laptop(apparently laptop fades WAY quicker if not covered up by something to make it more long lasting) and enter the OA key that looks exactly like windows key into the change product key option on System.

I noticed that to write a Metro-style app in Microsoft's development kit I have to get a developer license. It was free, but when it expired after 1 month, the apps I had written were disabled -- even on my own computer. That seems a little disturbing to me. With this arrangement, Microsoft has the power to disable anything I develop retroactively. Is that true? If so, should I be worried? Is there another development platform for Metro apps that doesn't require a developer license from Microsoft?

A:Will we be required to get a developer license?

After reading your post, I opened Visual Studio, and it prompted me to renew my license in a popup window. I am now renewed, for another month, up through 9/3/2012. Once Windows 8 is officially released, you'll be able to get a license for $49/yr.

That said, I don't know why you're not prompted to renew. Did you opening Visual Studio? Let me know...

Edit: Open Visual Studio (Express for Win 8 in my case). If you're not prompted to renew, open the Store menu at the top and try one of the submenus.

I purchased a large amount of music from a legitimate online music seller (Virgin Digital) that is no longer in operation. Recently, my hard drive began behaving strangely and I moved all the music (at least $1000 worth) to an external hard drive. I did this simply by dragging the music folder into the external drive.

My hard drive has since crashed and I installed a new one. However, when I attempt to play my legally purchased music, windows media player 11 give me a very discouraging pop-up: "License Required: A license is required to play the selected song or video ..."

It encourages me to visit the website where I purchased the music, but alas they are no longer. Is there any way to retrieve these files? Or have I lost all of this music?

Thanks!
 

A:License Required Message for Purchased Music

I believe that the license becomes invalid if the files are moved from the machine. But there may be exceptions, so wait for responses from people who know more about purchased music than I do.

What format were these files (.wmv, .mp3, or what)?

Hello everyone,

I upgraded the BIOS on my Z30-B-119 laptop, and it is much worst than the original BIOS so I would like to downgrade it.
There was no way to save the original BIOS when updating and the previous BIOS is not available on the website.

Do anyone have the original BIOS and knows how to extract it?

Or maybe someone knows how to contact Toshiba technical team directly? (Seeing what they implemented in new BIOS, I have no hopes they read this forum or care about user opinions.)

If you wonder why I want to downgrade and what is wrong with it, see below for explanation.

I was convinced that the new BIOS would fix the problem with the fan, which switched on way too early, but it turned out they made it much worst! Now the fan switches on at 42?. Before it was 50?, which was already a stupid choice of Toshiba engineers, providing that the temperature rating of this CPU is 105? so they could keep the laptop quiet at least up to 60?, especially that many people complain about the fan in this model. Instead, Toshiba did the opposite and lowered the temperature even more.


Seeing how senseless choices their engineers make, I will never buy another Toshiba and will not recommend anyone buying their products. But since I already made the mistake an bought a Toshiba laptop, I hope I will be able to downgrade the BIOS or contact them to ask for an update.

Let me know if you know how to do it.

Hi All,

I have a Toshiba Portege R830, running 32-bit Windows 7 (SP1) enterprise (for work).
I also boot into Linux Mint 14 64-bit, which I have installed on a portable USB HDD (outside work).

I recently bought a USB 3 HDD, but when I connect it to the USB 3 port on my R830, it only gives me USB 2 speeds (25 MB/s).

I checked with some diagnostic utilities (usbdeview, etc), which say that the drive is connected in USB 2.1 mode.

The drive reports itself as being USB 3, the cable is USB 3 (SuperSpeed), and the port I'm using on the R830 is 3.

I experience the same, whether I boot into windows or linux.

I updated all drivers on both OSs, to no avail.

next i tried to update the BIOS, but I keep getting the following error:
"An error occurred while preparing the update environment.
You have not given permission to execute the update."

For the record, this is the BIOS I'm going from, & to.
BIOS Version : Current Ver.2.80 --> Updated Ver.4.10
EC Version : Current Ver.1.10 --> Updated Ver.1.60

Does anyone know why I would not be getting USB 3 speeds (which, for my drive, are expected to be around 40 to 50 MB/s), or why all diagnostics are saying USB 2?

Does anyone know how to overcome the BIOS update issue?
(I've tried safe mode, disabling AV, disabling NX)

Cheers

Hi

So many questions and most of them should be answered by technicians. I really think you need professional help. I recommend you to call nearest Toshiba service provider and ask for help.
To be honest I don?t think you will be able to order this chip anywhere. Talk with service.

By the way: refurbished mainboard for Portege 2000/2010 with well working BIOS chip I found on eBay for 39 Euro so if you will not be able to do anything and repair BIOS buy new motherboard, exchange it and be happy.

By the way, I have Portege 2000 and it is really nice notebook.

Hi!

I have a Portege 3440CT with bios version 1.50.

This version does not support large HDD so I thought I'd update the BIOS. (don't know if version 1.60 does either, does anyone know?)

When I try to run the bios-update-program on win2000, it says "Initial error", anyone know what's causing this?

BIOS is downloaded from Toshibas website.

I have no floppy or CD-rom available.
Have tried the updater on win98, and also in DOS and it says "this utility not available on v86 mode!"

Is there any way to place the BIOS file on a small hard drive, and boot from that?

Ideas, anyone?

A:Bios update on Portege 3440CT.

Sorry CyB but I really do not understand you. If you check Toshiba support page you will find two BIOS updates. Both of them must be done using FDD. So now I am asking myself why you try to do it under running operating system. Sorry but it is really ridiculous.

Toshiba provide two different BIOS updates. One is TRAD (must be done with FDD) and WIN (can be done under running WXP or now Vista). For old notebook models there is no WIN version.

Is there any way to place the BIOS file on a small hard drive, and boot from that?

As far as I know something like this is not possible and you can check eBay and obtain FDD. You can get it for few bucks. It is really not expensive.

Hi

To access the BIOS you should use and press the ?ESC? button immediately after Portege was power up.

But as I understood you right, you want to boot from the internal CD/DVD drive.

Well, you could also try to press the ?C? button.
This would enable the booting from the ODD.

Furthermore pressing F12 button would allows you to enable the boot menu on the screen.
Then choose the CD/DVD drive to boot from CD .

i do not have a floppy drive on my machine, only usb ports and a sd card slot. How can i upgrade the bios?

pete

A:Portege 4000 bios upgrade

The easiest way is to create a dos boot cd-rom. There are several descriptions on the web. Google for it.
Add the extracted Toshiba bios files biofc67t.com, ec29nobb.bin, chgbiosa.exe and chgfirma.exe to the CD-rom.

At first boot from the cd and run 'chgfirma ec29nobb.bin'.
Now the ECKBC-Firmware is written (don't power off during flash!!!)
Than boot again from cd and run 'chgbiosa biofc67t.com'.
This flashes the Bios.
Both flash are necessary!

Here is how to extract the Toshiba bios file.
At first you have to extract the R211VOL2.exe file. Easiest way to do so is to use 'universal extractor' -- google for it.
After this you will get the file R211VOL2.IMA. This is a floppy image file.
You can extract the single files in the archiv using winimage (trial version should work).

Good luck!

Folks,

I have been wrestling with this device for a while now and I seem to be progressively making the situation worse.

My current issue is that I can no longer access the BIOS after changing a setting in the BIOS that related to USB emulation (or something like that). I was in the process of trying to make the device boot from a USB and pretty much twiddling with every setting to see what would work.

This one didn't. And now the device no longer responds to F2. It's like it is ignoring the keyboard. Doh!

Is there some way to roll back or re-flash the BIOS? Or another way to access it? I tried an external keyboard, to no avail.

How did I get here?

Well ... I was given this device to put back to factory condition and I could not find an obvious option that would do this, other than the Toshiba Maintenance Utility which looked hopeful. It offered to erase the partition (which at the time seemed fair enough) - BUT THAT"S all it did - so the machine just repeatedly boots, displays "Please insert system disk" and then reboots.

OK, I'm an idiot - but it does seem silly for Toshiba to offer an option that instantly bricks the machine?

Anyway, I've moved on from that problem to one that is significantly more dire. Not being able to access the BIOS means I don't have any options - unless one of you wonderful people can help me discover one.

I have since discovered that the next setting I was going to adjust - the Secure Boot setting - may have solved... Read more

A:Portege Z30-B-100 update bios from linux

Hi

On the Toshiba EU driver page you can find only the win-based BIOS update version.
This means that BIOS can be updated from running system only and you need to run Windows OS in order to start the BIOS update procedure. Linux isn't supported in this case...

Here you can find the How to doc about the BIOS update

I need make cd-rom 1-st boot device.
There are no operating system installed on my hdd.

I could not change my BIOS.
I press and hold Esc button then F1.

After that i see Bios screen, but i can not change anything.
I can only escape without and with changes?
No items can bee changed?

Can anybody help me???

A:Re: Portege M400 - Cannot change anything in Bios

HI

You don?t need to change the booting device in BIOS.
You can also set it while notebook powering up.
Press F12 immediately after the notebook has been powered on
Then a boot menu should appear.
Here you have to choose ODD as booting device and should confirm with Enter.

That?s it

Hi there,

My Portege A600-13Y BIOS is version 1.50:

- should I upgrade to 2.00WIN?
- I found this source for the biso upgrade 2.0 but there is no indication that this file is authentic TOSHIBA bios.
No checksums, no ssl certificate, nothing. Is it possible to get it in a secured / authenticated way?

Thanx for answers,
Schneiderlein

A:Re: Portege A600-13Y: BIOS update 1.50 to 2.00-WIN - How risky it is?

Hi

First of all you should use and download the BIOS files only from Toshiba website.
The Portege A600-13Y PPA61E is a Toshiba European notebook model and all the drivers and BIOS can be found on the Toshiba driver page.

I don?t know why you ask for the checksums or ssl certificate? the Toshiba websites are safe?
but everyone who needs the drivers or BIOS can download it?

You should only ensure that you have chosen the right notebook model and that you have downloaded the right BIOS!

But why you want to update the BIOS?
If your notebook is running troublefree then a BIOS update is not important? I follow always this advice; never change a running system.

Hello,
I have a Portege Z830 with BIOS version 1.60. It runs a single operating system, ubuntu, (without a windows OS it does not appear to be possible to upgrade the BIOS). I have a bootable USB (debian, created by copying an .iso image using dd) which works on other computers, but not on this one. With USB at the top of the boot priority, it is not recognized as a bootable device and the computer boots from the HDD. The boot is in legacy mode, not UEFI (there is no UEFI/legacy switch in the BIOS menu).

Any pointers how to enable a boot from a USB on this computer?


Thanks and kind regards,

James

A:1.60 BIOS does not recognise bootable USB in Portege Z830

As you probably know, Toshiba doesn't support Linux so you cannot upgrade BIOS under Linux OS.
It is also not offered to be installed from USB.

It works like application and must be executed under running Windows.

Had a go at installing this, and all is fine apart from installing the Value Added Package - the main thing I want to get working is the function keys for screen brightness and connecting a TV.

I understand that upgrading the BIOS can help getting the VAP installed ( I get the ID ERR NOTINSTALLTVALZ message), I know that Toshiba are not directly supporting the A100 for Vista but is there a BIOS I can install that will work? I'm thinking there might be a similar machine that works in Vista or maybe just an A100 BIOS that will suffice?

Many thanks!

A:Vista on Portege A100 - Can I update the BIOS?

May I ask where did you found the Vista Value Added Package for Portege A100?
I didn?t find this Value Added Package on the Toshiba Europe site.

There are only 3 files for Vista. One of the files is BIOS v1.60-WIN which seems to be OS-independent.

Regarding the BIOS;
You should know that the BIOS update is always risky.
If you will use wrong BIOS version or wrong BIOS update procedure you can damage the motherboard!!!
?and as you probably know the motherboard is one of the expensive notebook parts!!!
It?s not worth to trying something which can damage the notebook. You know?

I have tried it with a USB keyboard and removing the keyboard from the tablet, but this does not work either.
The laptop does not have SWSetup installed on it. I downloaded this from the website but say's that the BIOS is incorrect.

I then decided to flash the BIOS.
Downloaded windows BIOS flash and that say's that the BIOS is incorrect.

I would like to reinstall the OS but at the moment I am unable to to get it to boot from the CD as I can't change the boot sequence.

A:Portege 3410 - How to update BIOS and install XP?

Hi

Just one question: Why do you want to update the BIOS? Is it really necessary?
I ask this because this update is always a little bit risky and you could damage the ROM module.
Anyway, have you tried to load default settings in BIOS before you start the update and install XP?

You can install XP without CD. Therefore you must copy the i386 folder on the HDD from another computer and some booting files for HDD? I think you should search a little bit with Google to find workaround for this. You should find enough! ;)

Hi,

how can I update my BIOS when using Ubuntu Linux?

The reason why I'd like to update my BIOS is that on the one hand Ubuntu
writes an error message during boot-up and recommends to upgrade it and on
the other hand I'm afraid that there is maybe a temperature problem, at least the
notebook becomes slower after working for a while.

The notebook operating temperature usually is between 45-64 degrees.
The fan turns on at 62 degrees and turns off at 52 degrees.

Temperature seems to be pretty normal I would say but I think its not normal that the
notebook becomes slower when operating above 50 degrees.

I already opened it, it seems to be all right with the cooling unit, no dirt e.g...

Maybe I just persuade myself I and the performance is completely normal for a PIII with
866MHz??

Thank you

A:Portege A100 PPA10A - Will BIOS update allow to boot from a USB device

Hi

Portege A100 seems to be developed only for Australian market.
As you said there is a Portege A100 PPA10A-0002L model number listed on the Toshiba Australian page but the Portege A100 PPA10A-0002LP belongs to the same series which is PPA10A.
So in my opinion the BIOS should work too.

Anyway, I doubt that the BIOS update will add any further booting options.

Usually the BIOS support the booting from CD/DVD drive, HDD, LAN and USB FDD.
It should be possible to boot from a bootable diskette using an USB FDD drive.
I doubt you would be able to boot from USB ODD since this Portege A100 supports an internal CD/DVD drive.

You can add the RAID driver to the Win XP CD using free tool called nLite.

Just one question; was the motherboard replaced in the past?

As far as I know after the motherboard replacement the test & diagnostic should be performed in order to update the CPU microcode on the PCB.
If the microcode is not updated then your CPU would stuck at 600Mhz.

In order to update the microcode, the ASP must be contacted.

The other reason why the CPU runs only at 600Mhz is the low CPU processing setting in Toshiba power saver.
Check if the Toshiba power saver is installed on your notebook and set the options to a higher level.

Check it out?

Hi,

yesterday i set the bios/supervisor password.

When i now turn on the notebook, i can see the Toshiba - Leading innovations screen and then it goes dark and won't boot any further.

The harddisk / fan / graphics card etc is working - but i don't see anything nor do i get some kind of prompt or shell or whatsoever.

I tried all those "Press, ESC, Press F2, Press F1, Press INS" stuff, nothing worked out.
I removed the battery for several mins while pressing the power button, nothing.

Maybe somebody has some kind of clue whats wrong with this maschine....

A:Portege R830-1EE: Supervisor / Bios password - No Boot or login prompt

Hi

Did you use some high ASCII character like ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ? etc in your BIOS / Supervisor password?

In the past the usage of such characters prevented the notebook from booting up.
In such case you had to contact the service partner in order to solve this problem.

Portege R830/PT321E: Bios Update stops with "An error occurred while preparing the update environment..."

Following message seems at first

BIOS Version: Current Ver. 3.40 -> Updated Ver. 3.70
EC Version: Current Ver. 1.30 -> Updated Ver. 1.50
Bios and EC should be updated

During the BIOS update seems following message:

+An error occurred while preparing the update environment. You have not given permission to execute the update.+

My settings:
- BitLocker is switched off.
- No connection to a docking station
- Windows 7 is installed
- Boot mode is on? I guess it means:
"Closes all open programs, shut down windows, and then turns off your computer."

Any idea what the problem is?

Hi

I don?t believe such 3rd party tools but if your notebook is overheating and shuts down you should clean it using compressed air spray. This could blow out the dust from the cooling ventilators.

Make also sure that you are using the newest BIOS version. You can download it on the Toshiba website.

Good luck! :)

Windows 8 does not recognise my AGP slot and therefore not my NVIDIA graphics card, and consequently my screen resolution is too low for Skype. NVIDIA suggests a BIOS update would solve my problem - but it seems impossible to find the correct file to download from either my motherboard manufacturer's site nor even the AMI site. My current BIOS is AMI P1.00 dated 11/15/2007, so an update would not go amiss. Better that than a new motherboard, memory, processor etc. !

I ordered an Asus M2R32-MVP with an Athlon X2 5000+ Black Edition from Newegg.com, set-up the system and got no response even after building with the bare essentials and a variety of other configurations. I get no post and no beeps, but the CPU fan, the video card fan, and the Motherboard green light power indicator all function. I called Asus and they told me that I need to flash the BIOS because the 5000+ Black Edition is a newer processor. I've searched all over the web for this topic and haven't found a thing. In 13 years of building my own computers I've never encountered a dead motherboard does this sound like one or is Asus right and I do need to flash the BIOS?

Hi guys, so recently I've been hit with an error that involved the BIOS, to cut a long story short I want to upgrade my BIOS to the latest version.

My BIOS model and version is:

(according to System Information in Windows XP)

American Megatrends Inc.07.00T, 02/04/2001
SMBios Version: 2.3

I have went directly to AMI's website but they just direct you to a software that needs to be downloaded and paid for before you cane ven use it.

I have an ECS M848A rev 2.1 motherboard. So the BIOS and Motherboard manufacturer are not the same. I've also directly been to PC Chips website and can see that the M848AULA rev 2.1 is the exact same model as I can see on the picture on the website, and can confirm that is the one.

I'd like to know how I can found the right BIOS version for my system.

Hi everyone,

I have a SATELLITE U400-10O (PSU40E-00R00EG3). It's an older product, but once which I still love an use regularly.

Recently, I have purchased a battery upgrade for this device. Unfortunately, the Laptop won't recognize it. The battery works, but I don't get any information on the charging level. I have tried various 'resetting' tricks (deleting Microsoft ACPI from the installed drivers list, running down the battery completely etc.).

I believe the BIOS could be outdated and I would like to update it. Unfortunately, the Toshiba Support website does not list any updates for it anymore. Does anyone still have access to the BIOS updates for this?

The BIOS is a Phoenix currently at version 4.70.

Hi

N my opinion BIOS has nothing to do with it. Battery can be replaced and if you use compatible batteries they should be recognized properly. Here is the list of all compatible batteries:

PA3634U-1BAS/BRS

Have you bought one of them and original Toshiba product (Toshiba label) or some no-name product?

So I wanted to ask - is there a way to still use my cpu full speed without update (bypassing that error messige or what ever is it supposed to be; manualy add driver for cpu or what ever is needed to run it at full speed; or something else).

I bought new CPU cause my old one was slow. But now because of BIOS runing it on safe mode - my new cpu feels even slower..

Hi all.

I have been trying to install Windows 7 Professional x86 several times, and always encounter the same problem.

I downloaded Windows 7 via the MSDN Academic Alliance and then copied all files to a recently reformatted 4Gb USB stick.

Then I changed the BIOS settings on my computer to boot from the USB drive, and it boots and then starts. When i press on the Install button however, it says its starting the install but then quickly and the following message appears;

"A required CD/DVD drive device driver is missing. If you have a driver floppy disk, CD, DVD, or USB flash drive, please insert it now.

Note: If the Windows installation media is in the CD/DVD drive, you can safely remove it for this step."

The message also allows me to browse for said missing drivers, but i cant find any drivers anywhere.

I would appreciate any help, thanks in advance.

A:Required CD/DVD driver is missing

I will assume that you properly prepared the USB flash drive for booting. It is not enough to just copy the DVD contents. Furthermore, I will assume that the DVD drive is empty and the USB device is indeed the only bootable media.

ALSO - unplug all USB devices other than kybd and mouse.

Change BIOS boot order

Enter your system’s BIOS mode. Consult your computer manual or try different keys until you find the right one.

Find the screen or option for changing the boot order.

Update ITE ATA driver
Failing the above, try booting back into Windows Vista or XP. Launch Windows Update and install the driver update before attempting the upgrade.

Switch from SATA to AHCI
In BIOS, turn off SATA, switching to AHCI, and reboot normally, then re-attempt installation of Windows 7.

My motherboard does not support USB booting, has 5 SATA ports, and one IDE port that supports two drives in master/slave configuration. I also have a floppy drive attached.

I have two IDE hard drives (80GB and 320GB), one IDE CD/DVD drive, and one SATA CD/DVD drive. The SATA drive replaced the IDE drive.

Neither config worked and I can't find drivers for either CD/DVD drive.
