Updating the BIOS is unlikely to make it faster or be needed for compatibility with a new HD. My recommended policy is to not update the BIOS unless the update addresses a specific issue you are having. An update failure, which can happen even if you do everything right, can have very serious consequences.

A BIOS update for your laptop would have to come from Toshiba. If Toshiba doesn't show one there most likely isn't any. An update obtained from anywhere else would be very high risk.
