[REQUEST] Toshiba Satellite S50-B-151 BIOS Unlock and Update
I'm having problems with BIOS regarding fans (power on/off randomly) and due to lack of updates that causes the laptop to shutdown randomly.
My actual BIOS is this:

Can anybody update and unlock it?

Not comments in 5 days... it's not possible to do that in this quite old BIOS?

Please help me, I don't want to discard my old laptop due to this. It's hard to work in it with random shutdowns due to fan failures and Windows 10 incompatibilities.

Do what? Isn't this a request to fix the device for you?
I can only do simple tasks like bios menus unlock. But I have no idea about the situation with your cooling fans. Why do you think this is happening?

I think the BIOS has any wrong configuration regarding temperature and fan handling. Maybe it think's that the temperature it's too high and force the fans to go at 100% when it's not true, or the opposite, when I notice that the device is quite hot the fans are not going at 10-20% speed.

I don't know if in a laptop BIOS fan functions are configurable or not, in workstation motherboards they are.

Also I would like to know if it's possible to upgrade CPU microcodes or embedded drivers

First of all, we need to know if it is possible to perform an easy installation of a modified BIOS. Use BACKUP_Tools20.
I don't know if fans are really can be configured by BIOS, but it does have the necessary settings. Also, 4 microcodes, 1 GOP and 2 network OROMS can be updated.

I've executed that tool. File uploaded here:

The tool reported lack of privileges, so the file archive is almost empty. Run the tool again, but with administer rights, and make sure the output file is at least a few megabytes in size.

I've executed it again with right click and admin privileges, acepted the warning that showed up, but I got the same file (136KB size)... so it does not seem a permissions issue...

Is any other way to execute that tools manually or something?

Yes, you can find out the version of Intel Management Engine using the HWiNFO program, and select the appropriate flash programming tool based on it.
I've executed HWiNFO program and my Intel ME is 10.0 so I've downloaded that tool, but after extracting it, there is a lot of folders and I don't know which tool should I exactly execute and with which command.

Can you provide me that information please?
