    Hi,

    I want to update my BIOS from the version 1.4 to 1.6 (last one)

    When I try to do it (directly with the bios updater or via the TOSHIBA Service Station) I have the following error message :
    Error: Preparing to update was failed
    You have not given permission to execute the update.

    I'm logged with an administrator account and I already try to run it with "Run as an administrator"

    I'm not on the toshiba Windows installation because I have my own licence of Windows seven professional (64bits).

    Can you help me ?

    Thanks a lot

    ps : sorry for my english, it's not my mother tongue

    Maybe stupid question but why do you want to update BIOS?
    Have you noticed some problems with your machine?

    It's not a stupid question.

    I want to update because my laptop fan is always a max speed even if the temperature is low and if I elevate it to optimize the air flux.
    This [link|http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/kb0/FAQ22039H0002R01.htm] say : it will be fix with the new BIOS.

    So I want to update it.
