Toshiba a215 bios password then prompted for hdd password space bar enter didnt work


BIOS passwords can be reset or removed in two ways:

1. using software 2. using hardware.

I would first try resetting or removing using software, here are two software apps to reset or retrieve BIOS passwords.

!BIOS - is a PC BIOS toolkit offering password removal/decrypt and BIOS settings modification/backup/restore.
You can download it here:
http://www.syschat.com/download120.html&act=down

CmosPwd - Cmos password recovery tools
http://majorgeeks.com/CmosPwd_d239.html

You will need to create a bootable Dos, or Linux or NT cd in order to run them.

Good Luck!

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,

Need to see location of cmos battery on a toshiba satellite l505d


It's soldered to the bottom of the motherboard,

http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba-Satellite-L505-L505D/remove-laptop-motherboard-3.htm

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

Main article,

http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba-Satellite-L505-L505D/remove-laptop-motherboard-1.htm

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.

Computer will not turn on


Toshiba Satellite PSAFGU-00L002 is also known as Toshiba Satellite A215-S7437.

http://www.superwarehouse.com/Toshiba_Satellite_A215-S7437_Notebook/PSAFGU-00L002/po/1506166

Power Button Board, for the Toshiba Satellite A215 series of Notebook PC's,

http://www.zkarlo.com/selected-zkarlo-part/power-board-p3326.php

The A215 series is just a fancier version of the A200 main series.
This is a pictorial disassembly guide for the A200/A205 series,

http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/toshiba-satellite-a205/laptop-disassembly-1.htm

Follow Steps 1 through 17. You can click on any photo to enlarge.

1) Remove ALL power to the laptop. Remove the AC adapter (Charger) and Battery.

2) Use a multi-compartment container for the various screws you will remove. Label each compartment for the area the screw/s come out of.

If no multi-compartment container is available, you can substitute with a clean egg carton.
Label each egg holder.

SOME screws look VERY similar to other screws. DO NOT mix them up.


3) Follow Anti-Static Precautions.

Your body carries Static electricity. Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit), the delicate hardware components inside a computer.

It would be best to buy, and wear an ESD wrist str-ap, and have the alligator clip attached to a good ground source.
(I connect to an unpainted surface, of the metal frame of an open, empty desktop computer case)

{Electro Static Discharge. One example of an ESD wrist str-ap,

This is a link to a free Service Manual, for the Toshiba Satellite A215 series of Notebook PC's,

http://www.tim.id.au/blog/tims-laptop-service-manuals/#toc-toshiba

Scroll down a little to the subheading - Satellite A10. (A10 is in blue)
Scroll over, and click on the blue - A215

The service manual is in PDF file form. The computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files.
After you click on the file name { A215 } it may take up to 30 seconds, before the first page comes up.

The page number box is at the top of the PDF file, to the right of the Down Arrow. The Zoom In, and Zoom Out icons, for viewing size, are to the right.
( +/- )

The Bookmarks Menu is to the left.
Page 179 starts the replacement procedure for the Function Button Board.

In the Bookmarks menu it is;
A) Left-click on the + sign to the left of - Chapter 4 Replacement Procedures
B) Scroll down, left-click on 4.20 Function Button Board

Display Assembly, Strip Cover above Keyboard, Keyboard, and Top Cover, need to be removed in order to access, and replace the Function Button Board.

You can click on each individual area, Keyboard (Page 152), and Display Assembly (Page 155)
Removal of the Top Cover is covered in Display Assembly.

From your diagnoses of the problem, I also concur with Function Button Board replacement. (Power Button Board)

Would appreciate if you would post back with your findings, in a Comment.

Mark each compartment for the area the screws come out of.
There may be as many as 60 screws and 12 different types.

You can download the Bluetooth Stack for Windows 7 by Toshiba (32/64) from the below link.

Please download and install it in the Computer. After that restart the Computer for the settings to take the effect.

This should fix the issue.

Hope this helps.

Toshiba Satellite A215-S7437 Laptop Password Problem?


You should first check if the pasword is set on the hard drive. If so you can simply change the hard drive and it will then boot and ask for the operating system disk. If not, you should try by removing the cmos battery and waiting at least 10 minutes. (this works on older laptops) however, the laptop's power suply cable and battery should be removed prior to performing this procedure.

Satellite A215-S7422 Lost BIOS Password S#y7066387q need to no location of CMOS reset no time for louisville


Hi there, and welcome to FixYa.
Two ways to solve your BIOS problem:
One:
Removing the battery inside for the bios and find the jumper for clearing the CMOS.

Two:
Download your flash BIOS from here:
http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/modelContent.jsp?ct=DL&os=&category=&moid=1852724&rpn=PSAFGU&modelFilter=A215-S7422&selCategory=3&selFamily=1073768663&selModel=1852724%7CPSAFGU
As you don’t have a diskette on your model, you might be able to install it on a memory key, and boot from that, depending on your previous BIOS setup???
