I have had even new sticks of ram not work in one machine, but are fine in another. Put the old ram back in and make sure everything works like you want, then try the ram again. If they are still giving problems, unfortunately it looks like even more ram is your solution.

SOURCE: BIOS Battery Location of Toshiba Sattelite A15-S127

1. Remove the battery (side latch release) and hard drive. The only screw that holds it down is marked F-4 on the cover. (look for the panel with the 2" circle, that is the HD)
Use the white pull tab to move it left then upwards. It should move with little effort. Be careful not to loose the screw from the HD panel.

2.Remove all screws annotated F6 from the bottom bezel with a Pt. 2 screwdriver. (from my count there was less that a 15 )
Depending on the screwdriver, there are times where you might have to push the screwdriver down a bit to get in contact with the thread. Just be careful not to strip the threading.

3.Remove the "B25" screw located near the heat sink-fan vent. Somewhat carefully take your hand, and lift the bottom bezel up enought to disconnect (about 1-2 inches from surface) the battery with your index and midde finger. Look at they way the battery is run, and seated in the plasic clips.
With the bottom semi-open, plug in the replacement battery, and re-seat it in underneath the white ribbon cable, and clips on the housing per the original.

4. Replace all screws (less than a ton).

5. Re-seat the hard drive, by sliding it in first with the metal tab under the plastic housing, to the left, then puling it to the right. Replace the panel with the one, shorter, F-4 screw. Reseat the battery.

6. Return your model car with reciept. If a reciept cannot be found, use it for store credit.

If you wish to test the battery, simply unplug it and remove the battery for 30 minutes. Then power it on with only the A/C adapter. If no CMOS screen appears, you are good to go.

You obviously didn't read the problem carefully. The machine won't boot, so there is no command line. I have the same problem with a T23. It might be the CMOS battery that needs to be replaced.

After "Fast Boot" has been enabled, you cannot access the BIOS setup during power on . The machine will bypass "Press F2 to access Setup Utiltiy and F12 for Boot Menu" prompt.
This is a bigger issue if the hard drive crashes and access to Windows is not possible OR

Fast Boot can be enabled or disabled in the BIOS setup, or in HW Setup under Windows.
If you have Fast Boot enabled and you want to get into the BIOS setup. Hold down the F2 key, then power on. That will get you into the BIOS setup Utility.
You can disable the Fast Boot Option here. You will need to disable Fast Boot if you want to use the F12 / Boot menu.

Follow these steps:
  • Remove Laptop Battery
  • Remove Memory Cover
  • Spread spring clips to outside and
  • pull out RAM memory
  • Remove clear vinyl label opposite RAM memory slots
  • In the upper left corner you will see JOPEN1 with a white silkscreen square

Using a metal paper clip short the U to the Silver 1/4"post connecting the motherboard to the laptop case and hold it for 25 -30 seconds. Place back your RAM memory, put in the laptop battery and test start laptop. you should see a selection of F1 or F2 for setup. Using the F2 gets you into the Bios menu where you reset the time and date. Then Tab over to the SECURITY setting tab and change your passwords. Then hit F10 key

Booting problem


Do you know how to get into the BIOS setup? You can set it up for default in the BIOS settings. If it isn't saving them after restarting your computer, you should replace the battery to the motherboard.

Hi, I have a toshiba sattelite a55-s106 laptop that I recently upgraded from xp to vista home prem. After that I decide to add more ram. The system is supposed to be able to handle 2gb of ram max. If I...


Vista will not be the culprit here. The beep most likely meens that thee is a problem with the memory stick itself, especially if it boots normally when you take it out again. Motherboards are mostly designed to take identical sticks of RAM in pairs (Same brand, same model, same amount of memory) and sometimes, you will find that different manufacturer's RAM will not work in some systems.

Check to see if the RAM stick you are putting in is the same brand/model as the one already in. Also check to make sure it has the same amount of RAM on it. It could also be defective.

I hope that helps
