Most of the integrated hardware on your Toshiba Portege laptop is controlled by the basic input/output system, or BIOS.

This program loads before the operating system, so it is accessible even if a hardware issue prevents your laptop from booting.

The BIOS also controls certain settings, such as your system clock and which media the system boots from first.

I have had a few problems with my computer lately and thought this may help.I chose the update to 3.6 and attempted to follow the steps listed. My next steps said, "While the "Toshiba" LOGO is displayed, press the F2 function key to start BIOS Setup.Check the version of BIOS and press the f9 function key then enter to load setup details.Press the F10 function key then Enter to save settings and exit.The computer will automatically reboot." The problem is that when the Toshiba logo popped up it immediately disappeared (before I could press f2) and the blue windows screen started to come up.I waited a few seconds but the Toshiba screen never came back up.I waited a bit more and the computer was loading like normal.I figured I needed to do the function keys like instructed but it was on the blue windows start screen not the Toshiba screen.I restarted my computer and at the Toshiba logo I pressed f2 really quickly.A black box with white writing (command box, script box?) popped up and then disappeared so I never got to press the f9 or f10 keys. The only difference is that my homepage changed from Google to Toshiba (which I set back to Google) and for some reason when I open the internet it automatically opens 2 Google tabs instead of one.
