Removing the BIOS battery will not reset the BIOS and remove the BIOS password.
On earilier model Toshiba a parallel port dongle will remove thw BIOS password.
TOSHIBA BIOS PASSWORD DONGLE You can build a dongle that plugs into the printer port. Purchase a 25 pin male D sub connector and solder insulated wires to the various pins as listed below. The pins are numbered on the connector http://www.tilman.de/sonstiges/toshiba/dongle1.jpgthis is a picture of the finished dongle
1-5-10, 2-11, 3-17, 4-12, 6-16, 7-13, 8-14, 9-15 Plug the finished dongle in the printer port and power up the laptop. The password will be reset, go into the BIOS configuration to check the BIOS password, you may have to disable the BIOS password.
BIOS System defaults are best used for installing a new operating system or performing diagnostics. Bootchecks and memory checks due to settings on antivirus/antispyware programs are notorious for causing slow boots. In most cases these scans are unnecessary. Saying that, it is also possible you have acquired a trojan. Run a full system scan and if you have a clean machine, disabling the bootchecks and memory checks will speed up your booting. If after doing this your boots are still slow, tweak your BIOS as follows per Intel:
Set the hard drive as the first boot device in the boot order in the BIOS setup (Boot > Boot Device Priority menu).
Enable Intel® Rapid BIOS boot in the BIOS setup (Boot menu).
Disable Hard Disk Pre-Delay in the BIOS Setup (Advanced > Drive Configuration menu).
Disable system functions and features if you do not need them. Examples include:
Legacy USB - this must be enabled if you use a USB keyboard or USB
mouse outside the Windows* environment (Advanced > USB
Unused I/O ports, such as serial, parallel and IEEE-1394 ports (Advanced > Peripheral Configuration menu).
I had this happened to me also. you need to check the system bios to see if something shut the USB ports off. normally hitting DEL or f10 prior to bootup will put you in the system BIOS. Normally all usb ports disable because a device was unplugged without properly shuting the device off.
You might have your internal modem set to the same com port as your com ports that are on your motherboard. You can try to go into BIOS and disable all com ports OR you can try to configure your internal modem in windows to use com 3 or com 4. Remember, that if your computer does have com ports in the back, then is is probably set to the same address as your internal modem so something needs to be moved.
If you're pretty sure its your comm ports, boot up into your bios setup screen. (Tap Del while booting) Then go to the onboard devices page or any page that lists your com ports and change the property value to disabled.
Your PC serial port is possibly not setup properly causing it to not recognize the camera. Gateway has information concerning their special COM A port on some model computers and how to set it up properly for external devices.
Basically, you need to hit F1 at boot to enter the BIOS setup utility. Go to Advanced / Peripheral Configuration / Serial Port 2 then hit Enter. Then Disable.
Go to Serial Port 1 Address and hit Enter. Change it to Com 2 (2F8h). Save the settings and exit. After Windows 95 boots, go to Control Panel / System / Device Manager / Ports and delete the serial port 2 with the (!) -- exclamation mark.
Go back to Ports and select Properties for Com 2 / Port Settings and change the speed to 38400. Now go into Easy Photo...select Com2, and set the speed to 38400.
Test the camera by downloading the snapshots.
