Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite A215-S7422 Notebook ?

Got a BIOS Password lock on my toshiba a215 s7422, but don't know how to find CMOS Battery. Please Help


Answers :

There is no easy access point...since this isn't something the manufacturer expects its customers to do.
your right in thinking popping the battery out for a few seconds then putting it back in would solve your problem...but unfortunately for you. The only way to get to the battery is by taking the casing off...I know that sucks...but you dont have many options.
