Password recovery I have Toshiba A215-S4747. After BIOS update from toshiba website my laptop showed me password window. Does anyone know which solder points should I short. I found something about B500 in A215 series but there's no such point like this in my laptop under memory cover. Any picture will be nice. Regards

    Still the same. Toshiba, toshiba, Satellite ( to long). I checked every mm2 under memory and under plastic sticker with barcode. There's no more sticker. I also checked that cover in the middle ain't no B500 as well. Why there's no jumper like in desktops...Please leecom72 can you check your database for my problem?

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.

Toshiba a215-s7437 bios password what is it?


from release it doesn't have a bios password, the shop who slod the laptop to you must have put the password in, or maybe someone you know put it in. the only way you are going to get around this is to ether give the password from who put it in or take it to a IT shop and have them remove the bios battary overnight and then put it in again. that will remove all password settings and change all bios settings back to default settings

Password reset


That could be a bios password or a hard drive protection password. If it is the bios, you should click on F2 while laptop is in the boot process, and see if it will go into the bios. If it will, you can reset the password there as long as you know what the old password is.

If it a hard drive protection password, you should be able to reset it in the same screen that is asking for it. Again, you have to know what the old password is before you will be able to change it.
