Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite A205-S4617 Notebook ?

I have a Portege with a bios password I can't get passed.

Answers :


This is a solution from the following website:

I would only attempt this if your Portege is not under warranty and you are comfortable with getting your hands a little "dirty". Attempt at your own risk (but users with the same problem said it worked for them) Also, read the follow-up suggestion from siriuspowered on the same page.

I finaly figured out how to reset\015\012it on my TOSHIBA SATELLITE A205 S4639 . I have included to pictures to\015\012help illustrate my success. I would like some feedback from others out\015\012there to see if this trick works on your model. First, I removed the\015\012memory sticks ( both of them ) then I noticed there were two contacts\015\012in the upper left corner, they should have (XXX) next to them. I\015\012removed the battery and plugged in the power supply and shorted these\015\012two contacts together and turned on the laptop. I noticed it reset the\015\012passwords and let me get into the Wind0w$ Vist@. Goodluck on your\015\012ventures.
