You need to replace the cmos battery. That's why the time keeps resetting back to 2002.

Post another question on this forum and ask for the service manual for your model. There are techs on here with access to them.

Otherwise you can take your laptop to a local repair shop and they can service it for you. Make sure you don't get overcharged. The batteries are like $5 so total cost should be around $40-$60.

RESET POWER ON PASSWORD


The BIOS pwd last time I checked could not be reset. You would have to contact the Toshiba Support and they may have another work around for the BIOS password. This is used commonly as an anti theft measure.

The password bios is closed. Its model is TECRA A6. Can you send me the password


We can't send you the password, but you can reset it. To reset the BIOS password read the information from this link.

In case of your laptop the easiest method would be using software from Hiren's Boot CD as it's pretty hard to open it up and reach for the CMOS battery or the jumper.

Reset bios pts52u-07q01m motherboard


Hello,
There are 2 ways you can reset your bios2_bing.gif.

1. On the motherboard there is a small watch battery. Remove this battery along with the power cable from the power supply. Hold down the power button to fully discharge the system. Wait 2-3 minutes then reinstall the battery and plug in2_bing.gif your system. Your reset is now complete

2. Some motherboards have a 3 pin jumper by the battery. Lets say that the jumper is on pins 2 and 3. Remove the jumper while the machine is OFF and place onto pins 1 and 2. Power on your machine for a minute. (Note: Your system will not POST). Shutdown your machine and put the jumper back to pins 2 and 3. Your reset is now complete


This is a great troubleshooting2_bing.gif step for those of you having POST issues or no POSTing at all. Like other troubleshooting steps, this will not always work but usually will depending on the problem.

Please let me know if you have any further questions or concerns.
Thanks.

Sony vaio vgn-fs775p laptop real time clock not keeping time


Hi

thank you for your query

If the time is not keeping up then it would seem that you will need to change your CMOS battery, this is a small battery found on the motherboard responsible for clocking etc

The battery is cheap to purchase, however I do highly recommned the laptop be booked into a reputable PC shop for replacement as you will need to take the whole laptop apart to get the motherboard

I hope this has been helpful

The Toshiba Tecra A8 S8413 laptop cmos battery (or capacitor?) does not seem to be working. Symptoms: I set the date and time. As long as the laptop does not sleep or go into power save mode the clock...


The RTC (Real Time Clock) battery charges when the computer in on (operating). You can plug the electrical cord in and let the computer run for 24 hours by temporarily suspending any sleep mode or automatic power saving features. This should sufficiently charge the RTC battery.

Toshiba laptop tecra M4 bios password


The password may be saved in flash memory that needs no battery to retain it.
There is surely a 'cheat' to reset the password but I suspect the method is not real public since it could be used to reset a stolen unit too. You might check for a retail outlet that sells Toshiba and call them to see if they can do this for you. Most service techs will want to see some proof of ownership before accepting it for resetting.
