Hi ,, the battery is located on the main board.(I think you know this) eighter under the keyboard or in the back. You will need to open it up, First take the hinges off by prying it up(the piece that connects the screen to the computer) You will then find the screws that holds the keyboard in place. Take these out as well. Now if you dont see your battery, Turn the laptop over, remove the rom, hd, and rams, (there are a few screws holding them in place then slide them out). now remove all other screws and lift the back cover off there is your mainboard and the battery sould be there.

Here is a Disassembly guide complete with pictures. It describes step by step how to take apart the laptop safely and then follow the instructions backward to reassemble it. This is where i brought my manual from

How to remove CMOS battery for A215-S7444? I done a search and got this answer: "This should help: * Remove Laptop Battery * Remove Memory Cover * Spread spring clips to outside and * pull out RAM...


What are you trying to do? Replace the CMOS battery, or reset a BIOS password?

This is what the CMOS battery looks like,

http://www.ebay.com/itm/CMOS-RTC-Battery-Toshiba-Satellite-A210-A215-Series-/270970735656?_trksid=p4340.m263&_trkparms=algo%3DSIC%26its%3DI%252BC%26itu%3DUCI%252BIA%252BUA%252BFICS%252BUFI%26otn%3D15%26pmod%3D160437620636%26ps%3D63%26clkid%3D8748715535548215160


Now view this pictorial disassembly guide,

Page 3 - http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/toshiba-satellite-a205/laptop-disassembly-3.htm

Go to the photo in Step 17, and click on it to enlarge.
See the CMOS battery in the middle/left?

Round silvery looking object. Go straight down from the red arrow to the far left.

That is how to access the CMOS battery.
(Yes I know it states Satellite A200/A205. Same for the A215)

Now BIOS password reset?
Do not know where the two copper pads are to briefly short out. Suspect under the Ram Memory modules, (And under a small sheet of Mylar plastic), or under the Wireless Modem. (And under a small sheet of Mylar plastic)

The links on this solution I gave may help,

Magnify the picture given at Step 17 in the above link (attached below for your convenience) and you will see the CMOS battery around 4O'clock position from the CPU frame. I think the battery is soldered to the motherboard. However, I would like some expert to confirm all this info._1319.jpg

To remove the bios password you need to clear the CMOS.
Open your laptop casing look at your motherboard. locate the CMOS jamper it is near the battery. To clear remove the jamper and turn your computer on with in 5 to 10 seconds and turn it off. Reinsert the jamper back to there proper place and try to turn go to BIOS if there will be a password box appear.

You need to open your laptop and look at the motherboard and locate the CMOS battery. Just remove it with in 5 minutes to clear BIOS password.

Toshiba Satellite A200 start up passwod


yes there is, you will need to get someone who can put the laptop apart for you, if you don't know how. they will need to remove the cmos batt and leave it out over night and then put it all back together the next day. that will flash your cmos back to factory settings. other then that you will need to replace the bios chip on the mainboard and that can be very hard to do

Toshiba A200


The common mistake made when repairing toshiba laptops is forgeting to remove the battery. If you forget this it can cause the problem you are describing. And this has happened to me before (it was not my laptop and I was lucky to figure a possible solution to the problem. Remove the battery and disconnect the power supply (if you are up to finding and removing the cmos battery it might take less time) then leave it a few day with out power this sould reset the bios and restore setting and hopefull solve your problem.

CMOS or RTC battery for this laptop : can it be replaced


Hi AshishB, Yes, Toshiba does refer to the CMOS battery in their literature as the real time clock battery. Your retailer is half right, the battery is on the motherboard but its attached via a connector and it can be replaced. Here are links to a couple of venders that sell the RTC battery for your laptop: - Http://www.sparepartswarehouse.com/Toshiba,Satellite,L15-S104,Laptop,Batteries-Backup-RTC.aspx - http://cgi.ebay.com/Toshiba-Laptop-motherboard-battery-cmos-L15-S104_W0QQitemZ170060189842QQihZ007QQcategoryZ3666QQrdZ1QQssPageNameZWD1VQQcmdZViewItem Let us know if you have any other questions and please don?t forget to rate the posting.
