Yes, I 've seen this (the various revisions, was a bit confusing at
first). My model is:

Toshiba A300 Satellite Pro and the revision is PSAK1E. it has the
latest available bios installed.

The manual is quite detailed, hopefully it will provide you with the
details you need. It is available from

One of the linuxes I tried seemed to identify it as a ral8137 (?) but

Please let me know if you need more info, and many thanks.
