How to remove bios password on toshiba satellite 1400?


Easiest way to do it is to just remove the CMOS battery and put cmos jumper on clear. That will remove the password and restore all of the default settings.

How to take shell off toshiba c655-s5049, i need to reset mother board


Pictorial disassembly guide for the Toshiba Satellite C655 and C650 series of Notebook PCs,

http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba-Satellite-C650-C655/disassemble-toshiba-laptop-1.htm

You can click on each photo one at a time, to enlarge.

Advisement:

1) Observe Anti-Static Precautions
Your body carries Static electricity. Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit) the delicate hardware components inside a computer.

I suggest you buy, and wear an ESD wrist strap, and connect it's alligator clip to a good ground source.
Example of an ESD wrist strap,

http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2103245

I connect to an unpainted surface, of the metal frame of an empty desktop computer case.
If your table you're working on has metal legs, connect to an unpainted surface on one of them.

Barring none of the above applies, at least place a large metallic unpainted object on the table, and connect to it.
Perhaps a metal serving tray, or metal (Unpainted) knickknack.

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, use a clean egg carton.
label each egg holder.

Some screws look VERY similar to other screws.
Do Not mix them up.


What do you mean by reset motherboard? If your thinking is that you are going to remove the CMOS battery for a while, then reinstall it to clear a BIOS password, this = no.

There is a capacitor on the motherboard which keeps enough residual power, so that the BIOS password stays in play, even with the CMOS battery removed.

(The CMOS battery is referred to as the RTC Battery. Real Time Clock battery.
As soon as the Keyboard is removed, it is right there on the motherboard. Uses the same battery holder as a desktop computer, and it looks to be a CR2032, just like a desktop CMOS battery )

There are two pads which are shorted across briefly, with a small flat tip screwdriver.
Usually rectangular in shape, and each approximately the size of a BB.
This drains the residual power from the capacitor.

Location? Dunno
Generally under a small piece of Mylar plastic sheet, and sometimes under the Ram Memory modules, or under the wireless module.

Also, this link has a free Service Manual,

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

Under the Toshiba main heading scroll down to the subheading that begins with -
Satellite A10.
Go to the second line in this 'paragraph', and scroll across to C650.
Left-click on C650.
(You may also want to take a look at C655D)

After you click on the file name C650, it may take up to 30 seconds before the first page comes up.
It may also take additional time for the file to fully download.

Hello, My name is Vahe and I have got the following problem, I have forgot my BIOS password and I can't to turn on. Laptop model Toshiba satellite A200-13M. So I have got some solution to delete...


The most common way that most of us know on how to reset or clear the BIOS password is to physically remove the power from the computer by disconnecting the power plug and then removing the cmos battery for 30 minutes from the motherboard. Another way is to reset the clear CMOS jumper on the motherboard itself. Both of the 2 methods mentioned works because most motherboards use a battery to sustain the BIOS/CMOS settings for the motherboards PROM chip. So by cutting off cmos the battery power, the BIOS/CMOS settings will be erased. Hope this helps

Hi I have a satellite l30-134 and I am unable to boot the laptop without the request for a bios password, I have tried everything I know can you help with some suggestions please, I can not even boot off...


Power on password. You will not be able to boot from anything until you disable this, even removing the CMOS battery wil not work.

Options are:

1.) Email Toshiba and get them to send you an unlock code
2.) Try visiting Dogberts site of reverese engineersing for his brute force pass cracker

If you feel confident, on this laptop there is a way of removing the password, I take no responsibility iof it goes wrong.

Remove the Ram module cover
Under the ram modules there are two contacts marked C88 and an X near them
Touch the two contacts with a screwdriver and power up the laptop, the bios screen should now go and you can access the laptop.

  • Hello omer hanif, if by chance you didn't 'create a "Supervisor Password" to prevent anyone from changing the configurations in the BIOS / CMOS Setup? than we are 'OK!' Lets just say [No] for now. Bootup / Start the computer, and follow these steps: 1. When you hear the computer start-up, there will be a message that flashes very quickly at the bottom of the screen, it will read; Press F2 or F12 or on other "Computers, the 'Key Sequence may be [F11]..." The area of your attention will be [F2] Key at the top of the keyboard. The F2 Key will open the CMOS / BIOS Setup. paul7of9_15.jpg 2. Once this screen appear, you will see a 'Listing" of different set-ups. There will be instructions in the [right] Help ? area. You be using the "Arrow Keys" to (Select and Choose Items). In the first screen, there will be on the (right of the screen). 3. Set Supervisor Password = This is the "Password Setting that will prevent anyone from getting into without authorization this area that you are in now, to "Change or Configure" CMOS or BIOS setting. 4. Set User Password = This Password is use for "Logins / User Accounts... You want to "Reset or Change the Supervisor Password. Do so, and to finish; remember to use the [F10 Key] to 'Save the Changes.' Thanks for using Fix' Ya, and I hope this fix it, paul7of9

Using the Motherboard "Clear CMOS" Jumper or Dipswitch settings

Many motherboards feature a set of jumpers or dipswitches that will clear the CMOS and wipe all of the custom settings including BIOS passwords. The locations of these jumpers / dipswitches will vary depending on the motherboard manufacturer and ideally you should always refer to the motherboard or computer manufacturers documentation. If the documentation is unavailable, the jumpers/dipswitches can sometimes be found along the edge of the motherboard, next to the CMOS battery, or near the processor. Some manufacturers may label the jumper / dipswitch CLEAR - CLEAR CMOS - CLR - CLRPWD - PASSWD - PASSWORD - PWD. On laptop computers, the dipswitches are usually found under the keyboard or within a compartment at the bottom of the laptop.

Please remember to unplug your PC and use a grounding strip before reaching into your PC and touching the motherboard. Once you locate and rest the jumper switches, turn the computer on and check if the password has been cleared. If it has, turn the computer off and return the jumpers or dipswitches to its original position.
Removing the CMOS Battery

The CMOS settings on most systems are buffered by a small battery that is attached to the motherboard. (It looks like a small watch battery). If you unplug the PC and remove the battery for 10-15 minutes, the CMOS may reset itself and the password should be blank. (Along with any other machine specific settings, so be sure you are familiar with manually reconfiguring the BIOS settings before you do this.) Some manufacturers backup the power to the CMOS chipset by using a capacitor, so if your first attempt fails, leave the battery out (with the system unplugged) for at least 24 hours. Some batteries are actually soldered onto the motherboard making this task more difficult. Unsoldering the battery incorrectly may damage your motherboard and other components, so please don't attempt this if you are inexperienced. Another option may be to remove the CMOS chip from the motherboard for a period of time.

Note: Removing the battery to reset the CMOS will not work for all PC's, and almost all of the newer laptops store their BIOS passwords in a manner which does not require continuous power, so removing the CMOS battery may not work at all. IBM Thinkpad laptops lock the hard drive as well as the BIOS when the supervisor password is set. If you reset the BIOS password, but cannot reset the hard drive password, you may not be able to access the drive and it will remain locked, even if you place it in a new laptop. IBM Thinkpads have special jumper switches on the motherboard, and these should be used to reset the system.

Bios password on toshiba satellite L305-S5945 how do i remove?


Here's the REAL DEAL!:
Remove the RAM chips and peel up the black plastic underneath RAM.
Locate the 2 contact points labeled "B500 - XXX".
Find a small screwdriver that you can use to short the 2 contacts together.
Replace RAM and POWER-UP laptop WHILE CONTACTS ARE SHORTED!
That's it! If it didn't work for you, don't worry - you didn't have those contacts shorted good enough.
POWER DOWN
