Help Please. Need a Bios Bin file for my Toshiba

  badger120 05:42 26 Jul 2018

Hi wonder if someone can help me please. I downloaded Bios ver 5.10 upgrade for my Toshiba Satellite C50-B-14D and unzipped it. It appears its only for cd rom or diskette installation and doesn't contain a .bin file that I need.

Can someone advise me how I can go about locating a .bin file ver 5.10 for my laptop please?

Thank you.

You can only update the bios sing a flash utility either via a bootable CDrom / diskette or USB or if lucky there is a windows utility

assume you downloaded fro click here utlity should flash the bios to the new version.

Thanks for the reply. The laptop wont boot past the Toshiba screen so I have no access to the cd rom, or usb ports. I was hoping to by a cheap bios writer and try to upgrade the chip using that from another computer but now realise its not an 8 leg bios chip its a large square one that I think is intergrated onto the motherboard.

Looks like I have to admit defeat and accept that its dead.

Its not completing POST then - remove the battery - disconnect from the mains and hold the power button on for 20 seconds - reconnect the mains and see if it goes past the Tosh screen.

Ok thanks doen that. Going to leave it overnight then re connect it in the morning and try.

Any idea why the cmos battery is magnetic?

Ok battery was removed overnight and re-inserted this morning. Still the laptop wont boot up. I cant even get the Toshiba logo screen up now that allowed me to access the bios by pressing F2. All I get is the following message. when I power up: Reboot and select a proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device and press a key
