    Flash BIOS Toshiba Satellite A200-223
    « on: January 06, 2013, 12:51:00 PM »
    Here's my problem:

    Lost my password BIOS. Well to be truth it was my dad...
    So I'm trying to flash my BIOS from Phoenix.
    Futhermore I bought new RAM DIMMs (2x2GB from Corsair). And those are giving me BSOD.

    My searching is near to no results at all for my PC: Toshiba Satellite A200-223.

    Here are my questions:

    • Knowing WinPhlash or other program (please list it) is any way to flash through Windows, being an Original or Modified BIOS version?
    • It is possible to flash a BIOS with different versions? Example, mine is Satellite A200-223 to another version XXXXX

    Thank you all in advance for helping!!!

    A BIOS flash will not wipe the password on a laptop...and may render it un-bootable at all if it's the incorrect flash.
    For BIOS password recovery on laptops it needs to be taken to a Toshiba Service Center to retrieve/reset the password.
    Be prepared to show proof of ownership as they will ask for it.

      Thank you patio.

      If anyone know the latest BIOS version for this Toshiba Satellite A200-223 or a good modified, I would be thankful :)

      Meanwhile, I'll try to contact Toshiba for technical support.

        One thing to try is to remove the CMOS battery for about 5 - 10 mins and see if this will reset your bios.

        This will do nothing to the password on a laptop...it's stored in a different ROM.
        This is by design.
