You can change the BIOS settings back to the default settings by :-
Removing the BIOS battery and leave it out for 1/2 + hour then re-insert the battery.
If you wish to instantly reset the BIOS, then use a paper clip and short out the BIOS + & - battery contacts, then re-insert the battery.

How to remove CMOS battery for A215-S7444? I done a search and got this answer: "This should help: * Remove Laptop Battery * Remove Memory Cover * Spread spring clips to outside and * pull out RAM...


What are you trying to do? Replace the CMOS battery, or reset a BIOS password?

This is what the CMOS battery looks like,

http://www.ebay.com/itm/CMOS-RTC-Battery-Toshiba-Satellite-A210-A215-Series-/270970735656?_trksid=p4340.m263&_trkparms=algo%3DSIC%26its%3DI%252BC%26itu%3DUCI%252BIA%252BUA%252BFICS%252BUFI%26otn%3D15%26pmod%3D160437620636%26ps%3D63%26clkid%3D8748715535548215160


Now view this pictorial disassembly guide,

Page 3 - http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/toshiba-satellite-a205/laptop-disassembly-3.htm

Go to the photo in Step 17, and click on it to enlarge.
See the CMOS battery in the middle/left?

Round silvery looking object. Go straight down from the red arrow to the far left.

That is how to access the CMOS battery.
(Yes I know it states Satellite A200/A205. Same for the A215)

Now BIOS password reset?
Do not know where the two copper pads are to briefly short out. Suspect under the Ram Memory modules, (And under a small sheet of Mylar plastic), or under the Wireless Modem. (And under a small sheet of Mylar plastic)

The links on this solution I gave may help,

Bios password for toshiba satellite M100


You can reset the BIOS password. To do that 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 and I wouldn't recommend doing it especially if it's under warranty.

I have a toshiba portege m100 with a bios password set that i need to bypass. toshiba want 80 quid just to look at it. some sorces say short clr1 jumper but i cant find it on my machine. please help.


Most DESKTOP computers have a jumper to "clear CMOS settings",
but most NOTEBOOK computers do NOT have that jumper.

The password exists to protect the owner of the computer, should a thief be trying to use the computer.

You probably can remove the disk-drive, and copy the files onto a new computer, if you don't want to pay TOSHIBA to bypass the password.
