Mod for BIOS
#1
I have a Toshiba Laptop model L455-S5980 which had a low performance T3000 Celeron 1.8 Ghz CPU which was castrated by Intel. I replaced it fot a T7700 2.4 GHZ Core 2 duo which the machine runs at the correct speed, the virtualization and speed step functions are enabled in the BIOS. The machine is working OK except on every boot I get the dreaded message
02F0CPU ID :FA No Microcode Update Loaded for Alternate Processor
Pressing F1 to resume boots and everything is fine.
How do I fix this? The machines are capable of running a 2.2 Pentium T4400. The machine identifies the CPU. I am using the latest bios version 1.50.
If someone gives me a tutorial I could follow it and work it out as I would be interested in what needs doing.
Thanks.

PS I tried to post a copy of the bios and nothing happened. Also it took ages for me to be able to log in.

Please replace original bios that has the same name then try to flash it.
If it can't update within windows environment,please visit this thread and try flash bios by phlash16 on dos environment.

OK followed the tutorial and used the Windows Flash and the BIOS was replaced with no issues. It works perfectly. Thank you so much. Smile Smile Smile
It is important to use the tools in the tutorial and not the Toshiba tool as it will refuse to update the BIOS as the versions are the same.
Thank you so much.
