Sorry for bumping the thread, but I'm somewhat desperate for a solution to my problem...
We have seen this in the past, and I am not aware of any correction for the problem. Toshiba seems to be the only affected to my knowledge. This has been discussed quite a bit in the forums. Maybe try to flash with FLAs**t from DOS..Use the FLAs**t Bios.fd /ALL format..
Good luck, but you are not the only one with this problem...
Just go at the website of toshiba and take bios1.80 for satellite l350d and it works
looked at toshiba's website, could not find a 350d, found a 305d
here is the link "hxxp://support1.toshiba-tro.de/tedd-files2/0/bios-20091104115517.zip"
replase hxxp by http
tell me if it works
send me a mail to dardan.shatri (at) gmail.com i can show u how if u r trying to validate ur microsofts**ts
If you go to the Toshiba's support website for the L350D, you have to select one of four model numbers. Mine (PSLE0E) only shows 1.70-WIN as the lastest supported bios version. PSLE8E and PSLE4E both show 1.80-WIN.
Which model number is yours?
I can't afford to flash 1.80 and brick that notebook because there's an incompatibility.
But as some time has passed since I first tried to slic that BIOS, I'll try again from the start.
I'll post my findings here.
Ok. My findings are:
The Phoenix Tool (1.84) can't add the SLP in any of the three methods.
Without any SLP, the tool seems to work.
After flashing, I checked with the "SLIC TookKIt 3.2"; the XSDT, PubKey and RSDT strings still are the original ones, but the marker is the new one. (No wonder why it doesn't work)
So, or the Phoenix Tool isn't modifying the bios well, or the flash utility isn't flashing the file correctly.
Then I downloaded the 1.80 bios, and (surprise) it comes with a 2.1 SLIC. Can it be that the two model numbers that are "1.80 compatible" are just the same as the other two but came with Windows 7?
Ok, I killed the notebook.
The 1.80 bios IS NOT COMPATIBLE with my notebook. Now to look if there's a way to go back to the previous bios.
