Hello, When I tried to reinstall windows on a formated drive, after I changed the boot sequence , before starting bios it requires a password. Plese help


Easiest way is to reset the BIOS. If you remove the battery, and leave it unplugged and without it's main battery and BIOS battery, it should clear it.

Toshiba A215 Password Removal By purpledog1 on Aug 18, 2008
Follow these steps to remove / disable the BIOS (CMOS) Password on the Satellite A210 / A215 (PSAFGx ) models:


1. Turn the computer OFF, if it's on.

2. Remove the memory module cover, on the bottom of the computer.

3. Check the configuration of memory modules in the two sockets. It's necessary to have a memory module present in the outermost socket only.
  • If there is a memory module in only the outermost socket (the one farthest from the system board), then continue to step 4.
  • If there is a memory module in only the innermost socket, move it to the outermost socket.
  • If there are memory modules in both sockets, remove them both, then re-insert one of them into the outermost socket.
4. With the computer oriented as in the photo above, carefully peel back the black Mylar film. Pull this film to the side enough to expose the B500 solder pads (see photo below). Tape the film to the computer's case, as shown. Do not remove the film completely, because it may be difficult to re-attach it correctly.

5. Short the B500 solder pads on the system board. Needle-nose pliers or a flat-blade screwdriver works well to short them.

6. While continuing to short-circuit the solder pads, turn the computer on, and continue shorting the pads until the Toshiba Logo Screen disappears.

7. Re-position the Mylar film over the system board.

8. If you removed a memory module, turn the computer OFF, then re-insert it.

9. Re-attach the memory slot cover.

10. Restart the computer to verify that the password prompt no longer appears. If it does still appear, then repeat this procedure, starting with step 1.

I have a Toshiba Satellite A215-S744 Laptop and recently, when i wanted to power up the laptop for use, just popped up the BIOS password out of nowhere! I haven't set up any password for my bios! what...


Manufacturers sometime put BIOS passwords to protect system changes that may affect your notebook. To reset the BIOS password read the information from this link.

In case of your notebook the easiest method would be using software from Hiren's Boot CD as it's pretty hard to open it up and reach for the CMOS battery or the jumper and I wouldn't recommend doing it especially if it's under warranty.

How do i reset or remove build-in HDD user password on a toshiba satelite A215-S5808 laptop


if you are talking about the user password that prompts you when you log in to windows...(and you do not know it ) just reinstall the password...if you know the password and want to remove it ...go to control panel ...user accounts ..press the admin account you are logged in ...and after that click remove password...
But I repeat ..if it is the user password and you do not know it ..and it boots until the password prompt in windows...than the only options is to reinstall ...If you have another user with admin rights on it ..you can remove the other account from user accounts also ...

Unknown bios password


Did you or someone else change it? Normally there is no BIOS password.

Why do you need in??

To remove the password, remove the BIOS battery for 5 minutes and put it back in.

Free advice - don't use a BIOS password. It does nothing outside of a corporate environment.

If you think this will change or remove a Windoes password ... well ... sorry, it will not.

Toshiba a215-s4697 locate bios battery, becuase i can not remember my bios password so i cant do anything with my laptop


Hello,
I am not sure that the removal of the CMOS battery would erase the passord on boot. Better take it to a Toshiba Certified Service Center.
Hope it helps.

The screen on my laptop (satellite A215-S5808) will not come on..it just stays black


Updating the BIOS can give problems if the wrong upgrade was installed or the BIOS update was not completely installed/finished. If possible go into the BIOS and roll back to the previous version of the BIOS/backup version of the BIOS.
