I have recently purchased the Sat U300-11v laptop and am using Toshiba Tempo alerts.

It has advised me to update the Bios Driver - which I have downloaded to my Desktop.
When i try to run the program I get the following message - " Cannot load driver, C:\Users\Sue\Desktop\bios-2007 1023123728\PHLASHNT.SYS" - Please check your account. if you have no administrator privilege please log in again.

I have checked and there is only one user on the laptop - Sue and I am also the administrator.

Please advise what I should do. many thanks

Click with right mouse button and choose ‘Run as administrator’ option. Can you please report if this helps or not?

I had the same problem, and Run as Administrator works OK

Don't run the update from zip!

Hi Sue,

I had the same issue and figured a workaround that helped fix the problem.

Go to Control Panel --> User Accounts --> Turn User Controls on or off

At this stage, turn user control off, and it works. You can now update your Bios.

cheers.
