Thread: Satellite Pro C660 - BIOS update error

  1. Satellite Pro C660 - BIOS update error

    Hi there,

    Trying to update one of my employees laptops with bios 1.50 (C660) and it is displaying an error message displaying 3 possible causes. Ac adapter not plugged in (it is) battery is less than 10% (it isnt) and BIOS is more up to date than version 1.50. When I tried the update the laptop was currently running 1.00. So I updated the bios to 1.30 with no problems but when trying to update to 1.50 it still displays the error.

    Any ideas? Need to get the bios installed as it seems to fix the typing issues that the laptop has been suffering from.

    Thanks

    Hi buddy,

    What operating system is installed at the moment?

    For BIOS update itís necessary that Value Added Package is installed and you run the update as Administrator. Make also sure that battery is fully charged.

    What is the model number of C660?

    Thanks for the replies, im sorry im only getting back to use now.

    The model of the laptop is the c660-167. Just dont understand how it will update from 1.00 to 1.30 but will not update from 1.00 or 1.30 to 1.50. I have the laptop plugged in at the mains and the battery is at 100%. Have 3 laptops
    within the company now with this problem.

    Thanks again for your help.

    Hi

    Sat Pro C660-167 belongs to PSC0ME series.
    I can find ONLY BIOS 1.30 version for this notebook model!
    So v1.50 BIOS is NOT compatible and therefore you get this message!

    Have just realised that for certain models i.e. the PSC0ME the toshiba website only gives bios 1.30. Why is this when the typing issues that 1.50 is supposed to fix seems to be happening on all of the current c660 models.

    You cannot update the BIOS to v1.50 because there is no BIOS v1.5 for Satellite *Pro* C660-167.
    Please donít mix Satellite C660 with Satellite *Pro* C660
