What could be the reason anyone would flash the BIOS on a laptop? If you did not do it correctly, or if you flashed a BIOS that is not compatible with your machine, you will have to send it back to the manufacturer to get it fixed.

I agree. This is not something for beginners. If you do not do it exactly right or if you have a power failure during the process it will render your motherboard useless. The BIOS (basic input output system) is the precursor to your operating system. It must go through its cycle before your operating system can function. Find your box and some bubble wrap.

You are very right!! Toshiba has put out a program as a bios upate that is killing computers because avarage users like my self don't understand how complex this one is, and toshiba is not taking any responsability for their program or the results of the install.I am the owner of a $400 notbook shaped paper weight..I am looking for people such as my self that think that toshiba should take responsability for the problem they created and are tired of toshba getting away with this. I have set up an email, toshiba_kills_computers@hotmail.com, to gather info and possably take legal action
