On Toshiba laptops you hit the ESC key as soon as you turn it on & then you
are given the option to hit the F1 key to enter bios.


As to the cmos battery, they couldn't have hidden it better if it was the Queen's diamond!

It is near the bottom of the laptop on the right side, almost directly beneath the pause/break key.
Problem is, you have to disassemble the entire laptop to get at it!

Disassembly instructions for the Satellite A10 are here

Check out the above website it has the correct keys to get into BIOS for all the major brands including Toshiba Satellite is F1. You have to open your computer and get to your motherboard to change the CMOS battery. It looks like a small watch battery on your motherboard and is easily identifiable.

How do I replace the CMOS battery for Toshiba Satellite A10-S169. Thank you


The cmos battery in laptops is not easily replaced. The whole laptop must be taken apart to get at the cmos battery which is soldered to the motherboard. You should be able to find a new battery on ebay but then will require someone to take it all apart and resolder the new battery onto the motherboard

This is the REAL TIME CLOCK power supply inside your laptop.It maintains the system configuration and clock/calendar. Do not try to replace this yourself unless you are experienced,you could lose everything on the system and worse still these batteries can explode!! Connect the AC adaptor and let it charge for at least 24hrs. Press F2 to enter the bios. Set correct time and date If it Persists take it to a dealer to be replaced

Cmos setup screen


If you're trying to get to the bios set up, when the initial Toshiba screen comes up it will tell you what to press for the set up towards the bottom of the screen.

Sturt up problem


get to the mainboard
there is a jumper near the cmos battery usually shows the
word (jbat) near it , try to change its position for some
seconds while power is off , this way will clear cmos and set the
mainboard bios to default settings.
start the system hit delete or F2 to enter setup then exit saving changes.

smtime low cmos battery could cause the pc not to start

a defected cpu and / or ac adapter will do too
