How can I fix a Toshiba A100 that will not charge battery due to a BIOS problem?
Question by Gerard Holden /

Toshiba web site says that an updated BIOS will fix it. I have downloaded it from the specific model download page. Makes no difference.

Apparently a problem with this model and surely some others which use same chip and maybe motherboard. I am a technician, but this I cannot find an answer to.
