Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite A215-S5822 Laptop ?

I have an Toshiba A215 and cant remember the admin password how can I unlock the system to change my password. I have a toshiba satellite a215-7417 and need to reset bios. I heard something about shorting the pad503 by the ram? I dont see a cmos battery or anything on this laptop. Any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks!!


Answers :

Do not attempt to short out the jumpers on your own. As simple as it is, you can also kill the board. Also, the RTC battery will not effect the BIOS password. Take it in to the nearest Toshiba ASP center and they will reset the BIOS password as well as update it to the latest BIOS revision to avoid it from happening again UNDER WARRANTY. You do not have to pay for this repair.
Try removing the small lithium battery from the motherboard, that should reset all the BIOS and erase the password.
