Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite A105 Notebook ?

When i turn the computer on it prompts for a bios password.

\015 I have taken the computer apart and can not seem to find the bios (cmos) battery to reset. nor the jumpers that are usually found on a desktop motherboard. please help me, i have alot of work files on my hard drive that i really need. Is there a password, generic , that will satisfy this problem. or can i please get a schematic of the motherboard to find the bios battery.. thank you\015

Answers :

This seems to be a difficult model to reset.
\015\012I did find this though:
\015\012To reset the password of a Toshiba, you can use KeyDisk.
\015\012Good luck
Apparently, this laptop sets the password by itself because of some kind of glitch in the earlier BIOS releases. I believe this problem was fixed with the latest BIOS release.
But how can you upgrade the laptop BIOS to the latest version if you cannot bypass the password?
1. If the laptop is still under warranty take it to an authorized repair center. They should clear the BIOS password without any charge.
2. If the laptop is not under warranty, you can try to clear the BIOS password yourself. You’ll find instructions here and here.
After the password has been cleared, upgrade the laptop BIOS to the latest version. You can download it from the Toshiba website.
