You do not use motherboard to Reset O/S. If all you are doing is trying to reset Windows X/P, Please tell me what machine you are using and do have the Restore disks.

How to clear an unknown BIOS password.

<span><span>Clear using jumper (recommended)</span><br /> <p><b>Precaution:</b> When inside the computer please be sure you're aware of the potential damage that can be caused by <a href="">ESD</a>.<br /> <p><img src="jumper.jpg" />On the computer <a href="">motherboard</a> locate the BIOS clear / password <a href="">jumper or dipswitch</a> and change its position. This jumper is often labeled CLEAR, CLEAR CMOS, JCMOS1, CLR, CLRPWD, PASSWD, PASSWORD, PSWD or PWD as shown in the picture to the right. To change the jumper simply remove it from the two pins its currently on so that it covers the pin that is not covered. For example, in the picture to the right pins 1 and 2 are covered, you'd remove the jumper and put it on pins 2 and 3.<br /> <p>Once this jumper has been changed, turn on the computer and the password should be cleared. Once cleared, turn the computer off and return the jumper or dipswitch to its original position.<br /> <p>The location of the jumpers or dipswitches are dependent on the manufacturer of the computer and motherboard. However, below are some general ideas on where to find it. Remember that most motherboards could have dozens of different jumpers, make sure you're changing the CMOS jumper and not something else. If these general suggestions do not help refer to your motherboard / computer documentation or skip to the next step.<br /> <ol> <li><b>On the edge of the motherboard</b> - Most jumpers are located on the side of the motherboard for easy accessibility, verify by looking at all visible edges of the motherboard.</li> <li><b>By the CMOS battery</b> - Some manufactures will place the jumper to clear the CMOS / BIOS password by the actual <a href="">CMOS</a> battery.</li> <li><b>By the processor</b> - Some manufactures will place the jumpers by the processor of the computer.</li> <li><b>Under the keyboard or bottom of laptop</b> - If you are working on a <a href="">laptop computer</a> the location of the dipswitch (almost never a jumper) can be under the keyboard or on the bottom of the laptop in a compartment such as the memory compartment.</li> <li><b>Other visible location</b> - While it is possible that the jumpers / dipswitches may not be in a visible location, most manufactures try to make things easier by placing the jumpers / dipswitches in another visible location.</li></ol><span>Remove CMOS battery</span><br /> <p><img src="cmos.gif" />Removing the CMOS battery like the one shown in the picture to the right will cause the system to loose all CMOS settings including the password. To do this locate and remove the <a href="">CMOS battery</a> on the<a href="">motherboard</a> for at least five-minutes. After this has been done put the battery back into the computer and turn it back on.<br /><span>Jump the CMOS solder beads</span><br /> <p>Older computers and especially older laptops don't have jumpers or dipswitches and require the user to jump a pair of solder beads on a circuit board. The identification and location of these solder beads can vary and if not available in computer documentation is only obtainable through the computer manufacturer.<br /> <p>If you've identified the solder beads they can be jumped by placing a flat-head screwdriver over the two beads and leaving it on those beads while turning on the computer. Once the computer has booted turn off the computer and then remove the screwdriver.<br /></span>

How do you reset a Toshiba Satellite L305D Power on Password?

To reset the password on this model, you need to:
  • Power off the computer, flip it over, and open the ram door
  • Find a small jumper to the left of memory module 0 (the one closest to the board).
  • Use a screwdriver to jump this pad while you turn the computer on
  • Continue jumping the pad until after the splash screen dissappears
  • If successfull the password prompt will go away. If not, try try again.
  • When successful, make haste to update your bios: Toshiba's have a nasty habit of setting bios passwords on their own. I'm assuming thats why you're here.

Hi bhanu2797, thanks for the Reply . is it realy? as i know- password of BIOS can be remove by Circuit the jumber right?. i lost the Password of ADMINISTRATOR account. also guide how to circuit the jumper....

There is no jumper to reset admin account you'll have to reinstall OS unless you can lay your hands on a password resetter programme. As a computer engineer you should be able to get one easily enough.

How do i fixt it. it has crash and now asking for a pass word and i dont have it the screen is black

here are 2 password type first 1 is bios password if tell me about your bios password it prompt when u powerup follow procedure below

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.

And if u tell about windows password
Then when you power up the computer press F8 key then enter in safe mode then wait until it prompt for user password

then enter in administrator then if u able to enter then reset your password.
But if u set and forgot default administrator password then u should need win xp recovery disk.

Jumping cursor while using editor programs under windows xp

Does this happen with a text editor (notepad, word etc) or with on-line pages?

What OS are you using (XP, Vista, Win7)?

If it's a laptop, are you sure you're not hitting the touch-pad by accident?
