Thread: Portege R700 - How to update the BIOS?

  1. Portege R700 - How to update the BIOS?
    Join Date
    Nov 2010

    I'm trying to update the BIOS of my R700 computers with a command line on Windows 7 (x86 french edition).
    The BIOS version I'm trying to use is P007Bv170_EC73V140.

    I have downloaded the bios-20101112151130.zip from Toshiba official website. In the zip file, there is no instruction (no Readme.txt or other help files ...).

    Is there a way to silently upgrade the BIOS ?
    Thank you for your help,

    You have to start the exe file that you can find in zip-archive that you downloaded. After this the BIOS update will start.

    But before you do this update, unzip all files and close all running programs. Make also sure that you are logged in as Administrator.

    BIOS update is one exe file and all you must do is to start it and just to follow menu on the screen.

    Before you start it be sure your notebook is connected to AC power supply and all open applications are closed.

    Thatís all.
