Toshiba a215 bios password then prompted for hdd password space bar enter didnt work


BIOS passwords can be reset or removed in two ways:

1. using software 2. using hardware.

I would first try resetting or removing using software, here are two software apps to reset or retrieve BIOS passwords.

!BIOS - is a PC BIOS toolkit offering password removal/decrypt and BIOS settings modification/backup/restore.
You can download it here:
http://www.syschat.com/download120.html&act=down

CmosPwd - Cmos password recovery tools
http://majorgeeks.com/CmosPwd_d239.html

You will need to create a bootable Dos, or Linux or NT cd in order to run them.

Good Luck!

How do i restore a toshiba Satellite A215-S5839 back to factory settings but thge hdd has a built in password


You my friend are up the creek without a paddle. How could you forget the Hard Drive Password? Oh I know, it's a stolen laptop. If you're smart enough to set a password on the hard drive, then you're smart enough to remember it. 99% of computers with passwords on the hard drive and the person that has the laptop doesn't know the password, either stole it or bought it hot off the streets. The real owner set the password to keep thieves from getting to sensitive data if it is ever stolen. They might have even set the password remotely once it was stolen. The laptop is useless unless the real owner puts the password in to unlock it.

How to stop constant beeping on bootup after BIOS update and Windows 7 installation?


I know when I flash my bios a lot of things go through my mind until it is over because the last thing i want to see is the computer shutdown. To answer your question it is possible the update you received may have had errors in the files causing the computer to go on a beeping rampage.The only thing I can suggest is contact Toshiba's customer and technical support system to try and get answers.

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.

How do i reset or remove build-in HDD user password on a toshiba satelite A215-S5808 laptop


if you are talking about the user password that prompts you when you log in to windows...(and you do not know it ) just reinstall the password...if you know the password and want to remove it ...go to control panel ...user accounts ..press the admin account you are logged in ...and after that click remove password...
But I repeat ..if it is the user password and you do not know it ..and it boots until the password prompt in windows...than the only options is to reinstall ...If you have another user with admin rights on it ..you can remove the other account from user accounts also ...

The BIOS password is removed by the BIOS configuration, you need the BIOS password to get into the BIOS configuration.But if you do not have the BIOS password then you need to construct this dongle device.
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.jpg this is a picture of the finished dongle


Wire the pins as follows :-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.

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.
