Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite 1415-S173 Notebook ?

I have a Toshiba Satellite 1415-S173 with a bios password I don't know (original owner is deceased). How can I bypass or remove?

Answers :

Okay....don't waste your time screwing around with the CMOS battery or RTC battery - it has nothing to do with keeping the BIOS password stored. Just buy one of them parallel port password removal devices, or make your own if you have an old, parallel port cable around doing nothing. If you're making your own, the schematics is available on the internet. After that, you can sell it and pass it along to the next guy - so it really won't cost you anything!
The RTC battery has to be disconnected from the motherboard for 5 minutes and then reconnected. This will wipe the cmos information from memory and reset all info to factory specs. Once the RTC battery is re-connected, power the laptop up with just AC power, do not install the main battery yet. Boot the laptop up and go into the BIOS and reset the date and time. Shut the laptop down, replace the main battery and reboot as usual. Below is the service guide that explains the disassembly process to get to the RTC battery.
