I though was the bios, but when I try to flash my bios says same version or newer already exist so it will not be changed.

I would check with Toshiba on your specific make and model and see if there is a BIOS update available.

Did you compare the version number of the new BIOS to what is already on the PC? maybe it already has the latest version? How much RAM is installed? SATA hard drive? If yes you may want to see what mode its set to in BIOS. If its in IDE mode switching to AHCI may speed things up. You have to make a registry edit if you switch to AHCI though or windows won't boot up. So just check to see what mode its set to first. The BIOS boot order etc can slow things down too if its not set to the hard drive as first device.

Just spoke with toshiba and they told me that I have boot problem because my laptop was designed to run with vista...Is this really the case? As I said before my laptop rocks when is on, only shutdown and startup takes ages!!

I think your slow start and shutdown has more to do with the software running at boot time (which also need closing down before shutdown can complete).

Can you post a screen shot of this,
go to the start menu and type msconfig in the run line, press enter a panel will arrive, click the tab for start up and we can see what's going on.

Only update your Bios because you need to take advantage of a hardware fix or OS compatibility, there are other far safer things you can do and I don't believe it will make the slightest difference.

BTW if was designed to run Vista it will be fine with Windows 7.
