    Hello everyone!

    Please forgive me if this is not the appropriate forum in this forum for this type of issue:
    Update the Toshiba Notebook Satellite S55-A5188 Bios

    If it is not the appropriate Room of this Forum, please indicate to me where I should post this my great doubt.

    I have a S55-A5188 Satellite Notebook and it is with the latest bios update installed which was made available by Toshiba, version 1.90 according to the Aida64 data below:

    It turns out that I saw on the Internet a new update of Bios for my Satellite Notebook S55-A5188, whose version is 2.1.

    I downloaded the TSP55A5312.bin and TSP 55A5312.bin uncompressed files from the file spc-l-toshiba - satelites55a5188-vgsmbrev2.rar

    Searching the Internet, I was informed that to do this bios update would be necessary to disassemble my notebook, desoldering the chip, recording (through a bios recorder purchased separately) and resolding the chip.

    Is this process so complex in this way?

    Will I have to buy a separate bios recorder, take an electronics course, or even take an Electronic Engineering course here at a Brazilian university to become an electronics expert so I can do this update on my Satellite S55-A5188 Notebook?

    I count on your collaboration in my doubt!

    Thank you!
