Hello and greetings to all of you. Im quite new here, so i don't know a lot about solutions to fixing hardwares.

Recently, my sister couldn't access her laptop ( Toshiba Satellite C660D-1GR ) as her hard drive was empty. I added windows 10 on it and noticed when i turn it on, it doesn't show the Toshiba boot up logo ( Recovery or BIOS etc ) and heads straight to the windows boot up logo. That's when i notice windows couldn't install without it and i had to use another laptop to install it instead.

After it was installed and added all the necessary apps i know, i wanted to install the driver for the laptop. I searched for it and followed the instructions as shown. It said it'll install the BIOS when its restarting. I waited a long time and noticed the screen is just plain blank. I restarted it again and it showed the same thing.

Im assuming i put in the wrong BIOS. I looked through other people having the same problem but the thing is that they're using HP.
Please help!

This topic is marked as "solved"???

Assuming it's not solved, what exact steps did you do? Unless the other laptop was identical, you can't install the OS onto the HDD in one computer and then move the drive to the other computer (as least not with a high probability of success).

The splash screen can often simply be disabled in the BIOS. So not seeing the splash screen isn't an indication of an actual problem.

To update the BIOS, you would need to boot from a USB stick or CD/DVD with the firmware (preferred) or boot into Windows and run a Windows based application. From the description above, it doesn't sound like you did that, so I don't know that you actually have a BIOS issue.

My apologies, i tapped the solved button by accident, my phone's too slow.

And yes its a BIOS issue. I used the wrong one and that caused the laptop to show a black screen
