Need some BIOS file help

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Okay, as indicated in my other thread about my laptop, I am upgrading my laptop with an A8-3510MX.

Unfortunately, I have hit a *slight* snag in the prep work needed to make sure it works properly.

I can download the BIOS update from Toshiba to update to ver 1.50, and get into the BIN file that's in the package. The ROM is buried within the installer though, so I am not sure that the BIN has all of the data I need.

So, I need a bit of help, in two steps.

The first, is if anyone can extract the ROM file somehow, or tell me how to get to it to read the data within using AMIBCP to determine if the 3510MX is listed in the CPU updates.

Second step depends on the first. If the 3510MX isn't on the list, I need a BIOS ROM file that does have the 3510MX allowed in it, so that I can extract the strings from it to patch the 1.50 ROM file to allow the 3510MX to work in my system.

Any help is GREATLY appreciated!!

(If anyone wants to find the BIOS installer for my laptop, it's a Satellite L775D-S7220.)

Nevermind. I'm just going to sell the APU and wait until I can afford to finance a new laptop.

Mods, feel free to delete this thread.
