    Can you post more info please?

    Which notebook model do you have exactly (C6660-xxx)?
    DO you use original preinstalled operating system that you got with your notebook?

    O.k. Model C660-1WW, part. No. is PSC1LE. I have one account, administrator, and ever is AC plugin. From same support page I download new version of Toshiba Tempro, and instaling without problem.

    I try also try to copy download Bios file to Temporaly files, but installing is the same: starts program Afuvingui, and after one second writes: Project ID check fauilure.

    Visit the Toshiba European driver page, choose your notebook model and download the available BIOS... that's all :)

    Did you uninstall any important Toshiba utilities?

    Usually you need the Toshiba Value Added Package installed so the BIOS can be identified properly.

    Virus Scanners or firewalls can also block a BIOS update.

    Running the BIOS Update using "Run As Administrator" can also help.

    am not aware of having uninstalled any toshiba sw.
    switcht of ms security essentials, ran bios-20111206165418.zip same result: Project ID check failure

    then downloaded http://www.mytoshiba.com.au/file/download/resource/file/20164/sc660_bios_w140.exe
    and installed it (still without the antivirus) without problems. now i am on bios v. 1.4.

    this i call serious help. thank you very much.

    but unfortunately this is not the end.

    as i bootet the nb for the first time, it didnt connect to the wireless router. had to do it manualy and it still moand but finaly connected. second and third time booting same problem. now however it connects again automaticly.

    HOWEVER, the reason why i upgraded the bios was because i was hoping to get rid of the VERY annoing cooling fan going on and off every couple of seconds. this problem still persists. NO CHANGE.

    HOW can i get rid of that cooling fan problem? have been reading trough all sorts of forums and googled myself silly, but have nowhere found a working solution.

    please help. thnanks.

    I’m not sure that BIOS update will help you with reducing fan activity. Have you changed cooling method option in advanced power options for power plan that you use?

    Set it please to “Battery optimized”. It should reduce cooling fan activity.

    My advice for you is: do not change anything (BIOS update) if system runs well.

    This thread seems to go in wrong direction.
    The subject: +Satellite C660 - BIOS update stops on : Project ID check failure+

    And it seems that error has been solved by using BIOS from:
    http://www.mytoshiba.com.au/file/download/resource/file/20164/sc660_bios_w140.exe

    In order to avoid some misunderstanding please follow other threads to talk about different issues
