The most appropriate bios version can be found on support.toshiba.com for US model or toshiba.ca/support for Canadian model. If the install from windows wont run, i think your os is a 64 bit windows vista. If you do have a 64 bit vista, try this solution. Downgrade to XP then update the bios. it will do work. Then reinstall again the OS 64 bit vista. Its quite bit long but it will eliminate the use of cd or floppy disk.

My Satellite A355D-S6889 does not recognize the AC adaptor. It is only 6 monthes old laptop and adaptor. It sits in one spot most of the time so I wouldn't think any dammage would have happened to it. Funny though-my friend also has a Toshiba laptop and it does the same thing-only this is his 3rd AC adaptor. So do you think it is Toshiba's crappy adaptors or a Toshiba laptop problem?
