This is a Toshiba Portege R705 P/N is PT314U-017018
so its been a few years since i have updated a bios, and my girl wanted me to check out her laptop as it has been acting up for a while.
Turns out, she hasn't updated anything with windows/the toshiba tools since before windows 7 SP1 was released
so i have 2 questions:
1: is it safe to update the bios with this Toshiba tool? ive never done it that way, and the last time i updated the BIOS of a computer was like ~10 years ago. if i turn this into a brick im a dead man.
2: really, how likely is it to brick a computer doing this?
I would really like to do this, there are some pretty important updates, but if the chance of bricking this is too high, ill let her dad do it
id rather not face the wrath.
Let me know if you guys need any more info
Edit: i do have permission to do this stuff, so it is known
