Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite M45-S351 Notebook ?

Toshiba Satellite M45-S351 BIOS password needs help!

\015 I was just given a laptop by my dad who got it from a friend that has a 10 year old son who reset the password in BIOS cant get it to the OS so I have no idea what that is or anything further than that... In fact I bought if from my dad for $50 because the the owner was going to throw it away.\015

Answers :

BIOS passwords on Toshiba notebooks have to be reset by an authorized service technician who has the CD available to run the utility.  Their notebooks don't contain a battery reset to erase the password.  It was done as a safety feature to prevent theft from happening and it is a very good one.\015\012
\015\012If you take it into Best Buy or a computer dealer to get it done, you might have to prove that you are the new owner of the computer before it can happen.\015\012

\015\012\015\012Follow these steps to remove the\015\012BIOS password on the Satellite M45 series notebooks. Start the procedure with\015\012the computer powered off. A flat-bladed screwdriver works well to short the\015\012solder pads.
\015\012\015\0121. Turn the computer OFF, if it's on.
\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\0122. Remove the wireless network card cover on the bottom of the computer.

  • If there is a wireless network card in the socket then\015\012 you will need to remove the card before you proceed.
\015\012\015\0124. Short the BC378 solder pads\015\012on the system board. A flat-blade\015\012screwdriver works well to short them.
\015\012\015\0125. While continuing to short-circuit\015\012the solder pads, turn the computer on, and continue shorting the\015\012pads until the Toshiba Logo Screen disappears.
\015\012\015\0126. If you removed a network card,\015\012turn the computer OFF, and then re-insert it.
\015\012\015\0127. Re-attach the wireless slot\015\012cover.
\015\012\015\0128. Restart the computer to verify\015\012that the password prompt no longer appears. If it does still appear, then\015\012repeat this procedure, starting with step 1.
