How do I access the BIOS of a Toshiba Laptop?


There are three general ways to access the BIOS of a Toshiba Laptop:

1. When you power up, hold down the Escape key, you're asked to press F1.
2. You can click on Start -> Programs and locate your Toshiba Utilities and Click on Hardware Setup Options.
3. If this cannot be found under Programs, the utility may be hidden and placed in your Control Panel for security purposes. Click Start -> Settings -> Control Panel and click on Toshiba Hardware Setup or H W Setup.

You may also be able to access the Setup by going to your MS DOS Prompt and type C:\> Tsetup.

Thanks for your reply.

I tried the esc/f1 with no luck.

I just found the utilities in control panel before I came back to check your post. I tried all options with no luck.

The problem with this laptop is that it is not reading dvd's. Its probably just a bad drive. It reads cd's fine just not dvds.

I was going to do a fresh os install to see if it helps..but Im done with it...UNCLE
