re install the operating system...

Assuming you're looking to reset the BIOS password of the notebook...you'll have to reset the BIOS.
Turn off the laptop and disconnect the power source. Turn the laptop over, remove the battery. Remove the HDD too just to be safe. Remove the panel for the memory module. Underneath there should be a jumper which is know as the BIOS jumper. Take a piece of wire with both end exposed. Place one end on each of the BIOS jumper and hold them in place. While still holding your make shift jumper in place, turn on the laptop. You should see the Toshiba logo appear then go away. After that you should get a "no bootable device" message because we remove the HDD in an earlier step.
The password is no longer set...so shutdown the laptop.
Now, reinstall the HDD, battery, and memory panel. Turn on the laptop and you should no longer be prompted for a password.

Computer does not boot up The problem maybe the RAM, it is faulty or just needs reseating to make proper electrical contact.
Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up then remove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you. Just like you sometimes need a mechanic to repair your car, sometimes you do need a technician to diagnose and identify the fault or faults on your computer. Not only does a good service technican have the experience to deal with this type of problem, they also have the equipment that allows them to look at things the average computer user can't see, and he has a collection of replacement parts that can be used to quickly test individual components on your computer.

During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup usually the Delete or the F2 key

Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS the using arrow key scroll down to advanced bios features press enter change your first boot device to cd,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart

(note after you have loaded the operating system you should go back and change the first boot device to your failsafe or optimized defaults)
after windows has loaded

your computer will automatically restart it might restart 2 times one to finish the installation

the next will be because the operating system is loaded and will boot from your cd

during the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup

Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS using the arrow keys load

failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart
otherwise it will keep booting from the cd /dvd drive

hope this helps

Use a mouse and push the off button for the touch pad, thats the only way. If you opened it up, im sure theres an LED you could disconnect for the satellite logo, or put some black model paint on it..sounds ghetto...but it is what it is

one cause would be your dvd/cd player of your laptop. My suggestion is to use external DVD/CD drive, here in the Philippines the approximate price is 2,500.00 up it depends on the brand. Hope it helps thanks.

You will find all the drivers for the Toshiba A210 laptop at the link below, if there is no driver listed on the website for your operating system (Windows 7), then it is likely that the camera is not compatible with the new OS.

If you have a password in the BIOS the only wayto reset it is to remove the CMOS battery so it will forget any settings.

Only attempt if your a compitent because taking the computer appart may void your warrenty.

Try to use the RECOVERY DISK you have and it will work back.

Or You might installed software that corrupted the webcam driver. Try SYSTEM RESTORE.

Choose SYSTEM RESTORE and choose previous date you want to RESTORE.

Or try to uninstall the camera driver into the DEVICE MANAGE and reinstall again the webcam driver to correct some corrupted driver.

Please rate and make a comment if you find this solution very helpful and might help others as well. Post more comments if you need more help.

The Toshiba Satellite A210 computer is a piece of ****. I have only had my computer for 2 years and I am having the same problem. Everyplace that I have taken it to says that the problem is the CMOS battery. The CMOS battery is dead and needs to be replaced. That is why you cannot get through the boot process. Nothing is wrong with the hardrive, motherboard etc. All you need is a new CMOS battery. But guess what? When Toshiba manufactured the product, they welded the CMOS battery to the motherboard. So to replace the CMOS battery, you need to buy a new motherboard. Does this make any sense to you? All batteries eventually die and will need to be replaced. Why would any manufacturer in their right mind weld down a battery? Toshiba is trying to say that it is normal to design a computer this way. But in fact, it is not. HP's CMOS battery is located outside the motherboard and can actually be replaced by he average Joe lay person. And if you start comparing the design of other brands of computers to Toshiba's you will see that is not the case. The design of the Toshiba Satellite A210 is seriously flawed. It is the equivalent of designing a camera (before the days of digital) and gluing the film inside it. As soon as the exposures on that film runs out, you have no choice but to buy a new computer. And that is what has happened here. If I were you, I would get on Toshiba’s case day and night. What they have done, in my opinion, is misrepresentation and fraud. The have created, marketed and sold a disposable computer as a top quality product. But they forget to disclose one important fact about what they sold. That is disposable and because of its design, the lifespan of the product is dependent on the lifespan of the battery. I am currently arguing with Toshiba to try to get them to take ownership of this situation and fix my computer. Get on their case cause what they have done is not right.
