    @joecoolvette: The solution you provide is for a L500, but the L505 looks different. I can't find the B500 solder pads. Do you know where they are? Thanks.

    No. This is how a bad solution follows you around like a used diaper, ha! (Okay. Half bad. I did give the location of the CMOS battery, as asked) There may not be any pads to short out, francisra. However perhaps this info will help,http://www.tech-faq.com/reset-bios-passw... {Short the correct pins on the BIOS chipset?} Regards, joecoolvette

It's soldered to the bottom of the motherboard,

Scroll down to Step 23 , and click on the photo.

NOTE*
You will be unsoldering a solder connection on a BATTERY.
Need to be good, or the battery could bl-ow up.

Make SURE you have no Static on your body, OR use an ESD wrist strap, and connect the alligator clip to a Good ground source. (Average cost is around $3 to $6)

I hope this is because the laptop will not keep the time, and date.
You CANNOT reset a BIOS password this way.

Toshiba's have a small capacitor in line, that stores a small residual amount of power. Enough to keep that BIOS password set, even if the CMOS battery is taken out for days, weeks, or months.

There are two SMALL copper pads that are shorted out BRIEFLY, with a jumper wire.

Check out the above website it has the correct keys to get into BIOS for all the major brands including Toshiba Satellite is F1. You have to open your computer and get to your motherboard to change the CMOS battery. It looks like a small watch battery on your motherboard and is easily identifiable.

SOURCE: Trying to locate the cmos battery for Toshiba Satellite L25-S121 laptop?

I've been working on a Satellite 1415-S115, and found the CMOS battery. You will have to open up the 'clam shell' and remove all of the B25 and F6 screws from the bottom, as well as the B16 and B6 screws under the keyboard. To remove the keyboard, I had to pry up the trim piece that holds the power button and remove three screws. Be careful of the wireless wire leads, as you'll be tempted rip them out!

The CMOS battery will be under the right side of the hand rest, next to the mouse. It has two leads and the battery is in a blue 'bag'.

unplug laptop and remove battery. Take out both memory sticks and locate on the motherboard under sticks two points marked with ***. Replace one memory stick, plug ac adapter back up and while jumping the two points at the *** (use paperclip, flathead screwdriver or other metal object to connect the points) power up computer. This, if done properly, will reset bios, removing password.
