    Hhi

    please help me with my portege M400, I installed a new localized version of Windows XP , then I started to download the drivers from Toshiba website, and the first thing I did is installing the new BIOS update. I don't know which version was it. Then it asked me for restart, after I did the restart the device doesn't boot anymore, and I can see only a blinking orange LED, :(

    Please how can I reset my old BIOS? Is it the end of my Toshiba?
    I'm now in a forign country and there are noToshiba service center near to me

    Please is there anyway to help me

    Hi!

    I think in this case you must go to an ASP. I don’t see another solution for this problem because I think the ROM module must be reflashed or the completely mainboard must be replaced.

    On the Toshiba website you can search for the nearest ASP:
    http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com => Support & Downloads => Find an authorized service provider

    And if you don’t find an ASP in your country just contact an ASP in another country. I’m sure that they will try to help you.

    Bye

    Hi buddy,

    I can understand you very well but I agree with Lars. Only the ASP can help you…
    Hopefully the motherboard ROM module is not damage.. so in such case only the BIOS must be updated again…

    Cheers and good luck
