    So I read the solutions posted and basically I am going to have to take apart the laptop to get to the CMOS battery. Thats what I was afraid of. The other solutions are the BIOS backdoor passwords which I already tried. Another solution is Hirens disk, which I have. The problem with that is that I can't boot anything up without first getting past the bios password. Uhhggg!!! Guess there's no easy way to do this but to take apart the laptop, which is harder to put back together than it is to take apart...lol

    Ok, got a new problem. I took out one of the memory cards to see if it would fit in another toshiba laptop i have. when I put it BACK in, the screen remains black and wont even bring up the bios password window. The laptop tries to power up then turns off. I rechecked the memory card and it is in there securely. What happened?

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


It's soldered to the bottom of the motherboard,

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.

Toshiba satellite l505d-s5007 Toshiba satellite l505d-s5007 laptop. Need jumper or dipswitch identification to short out or switch to the bios password.


I don't think that's available on laptops; I've never seen it on Toshiba models. There is usually a small battery to save BIOS info and keep the clock going when the main battery is out. It's either under the keyboard or near the memory or wireless card compartment. Remove the main battery and leave the adapter unplugged. Open the compartments and look for a a connector with just a red and black wire connected to it - if you see it going to a coin cell, that's the one you want. Unplug it and wait ten seconds. Plug it in and put everything back together. If you got the right connector, your computer will probably go straight to BIOS and ask you to set the time and date.

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.
