    I945PM Chipset supports C2D T7200/400/600 processors according to Intel's site (http://ark.intel.com/chipset.aspx?familyID=22817 - compatible products),
    but I cannot find any information on compatibility of the BIOS.

    What processors are compatible with the latest BIOS version for A100?

    Hi

    Such informations are not available on the Toshiba page.
    But there are different A100 with different hardware components.
    You can check some A100 with different CPUs and then you will know what CPUs would be supported for sure.

    But there is a still small kind of risk for all other CPUs. So you will need simply test this…
    But note; stronger CPUs could affect the notebook functionality due to higher heat dissipation.

    Hi buddy,

    First of all I must say that CPU upgrade is not supported on Satellite A100 so there is no list of compatible CPUs on Toshiba page.
    But you can check the specifications other A100 models with the same model number like PSA123E.
    You can also read about upgrades here:

    Last but not least BIOS changelog is not available on Toshiba page. Such an update should only be done if it’s really necessary.
