Toshiba A215 Password Removal

\015 Follow these steps to remove / disable the BIOS (CMOS) Password on the Satellite A210 / A215 (PSAFGx ) models:\015\012\015\0121. Turn the computer OFF, if it's on.\015\0122. Remove the memory module cover, on the bottom of the computer.\015\0123. Check the configuration of memory modules in the two sockets. It's necessary to have a memory module present in the outermost socket only.\015\012\015\012\015\012If there is a memory module in only the outermost socket (the one farthest from the system board), then continue to step 4.\015\012\015\012If there is a memory module in only the innermost socket, move it to the outermost socket.\015\012\015\012If there are memory modules in both sockets, remove them both, then re-insert one of them into the outermost socket.\015\012\015\0124. With the computer oriented as in the photo above, carefully peel back the black Mylar film. Pull this film to the side enough to expose the B500 solder pads (see photo below). Tape the film to the computer's case, as shown. Do not remove the film completely, because it may be difficult to re-attach it correctly.\015\012\015\0125. Short the B500 solder pads on the system board. Needle-nose pliers or a flat-blade screwdriver works well to short them.\015\0126. While continuing to short-circuit the solder pads, turn the computer on, and continue shorting the pads until the Toshiba Logo Screen disappears.\015\0127. Re-position the Mylar film over the system board.\015\0128. If you removed a memory module, turn the computer OFF, then re-insert it.\015\0129. Re-attach the memory slot cover.\015\01210. Restart the computer to verify that the password prompt no longer appears. If it does still appear, then repeat this procedure, starting with step 1.\015

I had the same problem and could not find the pictures either. I still figured it out, so here are more detailed instructions. Please use a combination of the previous instructions and mine. This worked for my computer, but I can't guarantee success everytime since I have only done it once. Just do the best you can.
\015\012
\015\012-Pull off the memory cover on the back of your computer.
\015\012
\015\012-Now, take out any memory cards that are present.
\015\012
\015\012-Look at the circuit board under where the memory was. You should see a rectangular black plastic sticker.
\015\012
\015\012-Pull the sticker up.
\015\012
\015\012-Look VERY closely at the circuit board under where the sticker was. You should find two soldering points close together that are labled with "B500."
\015\012
\015\012-Now put one memory card in the slot that is furthest from the circuit board. DO NOT put a memory card into the inner-most slot at this time.
\015\012
\015\012-Carefully hold a very small straight screwdriver over these two points and turn the power on to your computer.
\015\012
\015\012-The Toshiba boot up screen will appear.
\015\012
\015\012-Continue holding the screwdriver over the two points until the Toshiba screen goes away.
\015\012
\015\012-When the screen goes away, pull away the screwdriver.
\015\012
\015\012-Turn the computer off.
\015\012
\015\012-Put the black plastic sticker back in place on the circuit board.
\015\012
\015\012-Put all memory cards back in the memory slots.
\015\012
\015\012-Put the memory cover back on the laptop case.
\015\012
\015\012-Turn the computer on.
\015\012
\015\012At this point I was asked to start windows normally or start using repair wizard. Normally did not work. So start windows using the repair option. It took about 10 minuts for windows to finally open normally.
\015\012
\015\012100% success in my case! Please be careful when doing this repair because I do not know what damage could be done if you do it wrong. But, after 2 months of not using my laptop, it is finally back in operating condition!
\015\012
\015\012Thanks
THANKS IT WORKS VERY WELL
