Are you trying to remove the BIOS password on your Toshiba?
If so try this :-

You need to build a hardware device that plugs into the printer port.

Get a 25 pin male D sub connector, and solder various wires
to the pins numbered below. The pins on the connector are numbered 1 to 25
For a picture of this hardware device (dongle) go to :-
http://www.tilman.de/sonstiges/toshiba/dongle1.jpg

Connect these pins together by soldering thin insulated wires to the following pins :-
1-5-10,
2-11,
3-17,
4-12,
6-16,
7-13,
8-14,
9-15
Plug the dongle in the printer port and boot up the laptop, you will then be able to bypass the BIOS password and go into the BIOS to reset/remove the password.

    It only works on Toshiba laptops with a LPT1 (25 pin DSub connector) printer port.

I can no longer access my bios through the supervisor password, therefore I can no longer activate boot priority. I need to repair a windows 10 continuous loop that resulted from an update gone wrong!


The password that was set is a security device and there is no back door. Options are; replace the BIOS chip with a known good programmed chip, replace the motherboard or remember the password.

Toshiba Satellite L305-S5894 (PSLB8U-023003 Motherborad Driver


Motherboards don't have a driver per say. They do have something called a BIOS.

Get onlineand got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "ToshibaSupport" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operatingsystem when requested. Download and install the BIOS drivers. This is called Flashing the BIOS

The power supply light and battery charge light is on but the laptop will not boot and there is On/Off light. It may be the lid switch. I cannot find this switch.


Not quite sure what you mean by "On/Off light" but I'm assuming you mean the laptop appears to switch on.

This problem sounds like it's an issue with either the bios or the cpu. It's a fairly common problem for the bios to go "bad", possibly through a bad bios flash, needing either a clear of the cmos, or reflashing (more likely a new bios chip.

The cpu issue is rather more unlikely unless the laptop has been dismantled and the cpu socket unlocked.

Solutions to this problem require dismantling of the laptop, so unless you know what you're doing, I'd recommend taking it to a repair centre.

I have toshiba qosmio g30 tried updating bios after that nothing comes on screen . display goes off


Hello,

This seems like a serious problem, If the bios update procedure has gone wrong then your Bios chip is now corrupted. They is a slim chance that if you remove the battery which power the Bios and plug it back again maybe it will work again. You will need to dismantle your laptop and need to find the battery. I am not sure where it is located in your laptop. In any case best bet would be to take your laptop to a toshiba service center.

My computer is locked in the BIOS Setting


I assume you have already tried the Dell site & searched (using eg google) for 'Inspiron 8600 BIOS reset' so I'll not bother repeating your efforts.

Since you posted here, I can only assume you have been unable to find any information about special power-on key combinations or any small holes underneath (where a paperclip can be used to reset the BIOS) ... in which case your only option is to dismantle the laptop, locate the BIOS battery and remove it for 30 seconds or so.

To find out how to dismantle the laptop, search (google) for 'Inspiron 8600 BIOS Battery replacement' ....

If you've lost the bios password, you'll probably have to 'flash' the bios. If you feel comfortable enough, you can dismantle the laptop and remove the motherboard battery for several minutes, then replace it and reassemble the system, see if the password has been cleared. (Note: The motherboard battery is NOT the laptop battery; you have to remove both!)

Unexpected shut down


First, you need to find out what is causing the shutdown problem.

Most likely since you have this laptop for 3years now and (i am assuming you havent had this serviced). You might be suffering from overheat problems since you are using a DESKTOP P4 cpu.

Try to dismantle your laptop and remove the Fan and Heat sink. CLEAN them and put new thermal paste to the cpu.

Do that and see if this fixes the problem. If not, let me know again

If i was able to help please rate this solution as a fixya!

thanks
