My Toshiba satellite a215-s7416 is asking for a password upon startup, i dont know what the password is. The screen looks like this: (http://www.r-obi.de/paperclip/locked3.png). How can I guess or remove...


Remove the ram cover, with laptop switched off
Remove the 2 ram modules and insert one in the slot that is furthest away from the motherboard
Just underneath the ram is a thin plastic sheet, gently peel back to reveal two solder contacts
they should say B500, TOUCH THESE WITH A FLAT BLADED SCREWDRIVER while powering on the laptop, the bios password should go.
Replace ram and sheet, replace ram cover reboot.

BIOS password won't turn off


You wanted one you got one. Only way to clear is to reset the BIOS by removing power,laptop battery and BIOS battery on MoBo. That involves taking laptop apart.

Weren't you being clever!

For that you need to reset factory defaults settings for bios.
For reset bios u have to open back side of your laptop then u find motherbord circuit there.
pull cmos cell on motherbord for 15 minute then it reset to defaults.
Also u can reset with jumper settigns read carefully on mother bord there is 1 jumper near cmos cell u read there " bios reset or clear"
It is on 1-2 position right now set it in 2-3 position then power up then all bios settings are reset.
then again set it in 1-2 its original position.
Then it not want password.

Toshiba satilite a215 s7422 bios password how to cleare


You'll need a special tool that only Toshiba has. I believe you can get yours cleared for FREE if you tell them that all of a sudden out of nowhere you have a bios password. Stick to that story because they've already admitted to the problem with many of their laptops. You'll have to find an authorized Toshiba repair center to take care of it for you. Otherwise I believe they charge around $100 to clear it.

Don't bother to try the cmos battery trick, it doesn't work on your model. The password is stored on an onboard chip.

Satellite A215-S7416 Bios Password


First of all i'll need to know what type of laptop it is,because different laptop has differents ways of reseting the BIOS. You can open the laptop and just take out the battery for a couple seconds and put it in back ( make sure that the power os unplugged before opening.) If the laptop has no battery then you will have to download or get a manual for the laptop hence then its going to tell you to touch 2 jumpers in order to reset the BIOS.
