Toshiba Satellite Pro L300 (PSLB9E-03F003EN) BIOS Problem

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello Everyone.

I have a Toshiba Satellite Pro L300 (PSLB9E-03F003EN) laptop running Windows XP Professional (downgrade from Vista). Everything was running fine, until I stupidly updated the BIOS from version 1.80 to 2.10 and now my laptop wont work it wont get to the windows load up, it wont even go to safe mode or reinstall operating system. I know the issue is upgrading the bios from 1.80 to 2.10 but how can I if possible change back to 1.80 or how can I fix this problem. A free solution preferred but would appreciate knowing if I had to take it to a shop or what might need replacing if i cant change the bios. I don't know about the bios much but i know a fair amount on pc's

All help will be really appreciated.

Thank you in advance

The BIOS is a Insyde H2o that's all i know about the BIOS if you need more info on laptop i can give it to you.

Again please help and i appreciate all support and help I can get.

The BIOS Update Completed Successfully Without Crashing.
I have also looked at other forums but i don't see any fix about this. Even if i had to do a flash I think it is i don't know how to do this?

Well you can call toshiba and see if the bios chip is removable, if so, they can send you a replacement and you can change it yourself if you can get to it.

If it is not removable, you will have no choice but to send it in to get fixed.

Pretty much, when the bios is shot, there is nothing you can do.

Before doing what is mentioned in the previous post, try this first.

Well there are two possible solutions to try and before you ask I have Satellite L300D-1BV, but anyway.

1: Go into your BIOS by pressing F2.

2: When you get into the BIOS settings go to Advanced.

3: Scroll down the list until you come to SATA Controller Mode and change the mode to Compatibility.

If the above fails then change the mode option back to AHCI and follow the information below, but you won't like the final option though.

Download this from the intel site (Matrix Storage Manager for XP):
http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Deta...17412&lang=eng

Then read this:
http://downloadmirror.intel.com/17412/eng/readme.txt

And follow the steps on XP, when you reinstall XP Professional.

And finally good luck!
