    Hi all,

    I get a "PCI BIOS bug found" error when I boot up my Equium A110-233. It gives a number but the error flies by so quick I can't see it.

    I haven't noticed any errors running the computer except my SD card reader doesn't work but because I'm running Linux based Ubuntu Gutsy-Gibbon. I'm aware that Toshiba doesn't supported drivers for this device.

    How bad are BIOS bug errors? Does it need fixing ?
    Can I interrogate the OS to find out the BIOS bug's number / details?
    Can it be fixed with a BIOS update loaded via Windows emulator or virtual machine?

    Thanks for any ideas in advance.

    Hello Rob

    Can you use WXP on your notebook without any problems?

    Hi Silas,

    I removed XP from my laptop and loaded Ubuntu 7.10 (Linux) instead - freedom at last !!

    I have been reading various forums and asking friends and colleagues at work. They advised that the message I am getting actually comes after the BIOS has loaded and is not to do with the laptop at all - its simply because there is no SD card-reader driver for my current version of the linux kernel - Hopefully this will come but for now I will find a work around with a USB reader instead.
