    This worked for my Toshiba Satellite A215 S4747 laptop. I removed the battery, pressed the power button for about a minute to deplete any power, removed memory modules, located J4 pin and pressed a tiny flat head screwdriver on it for 35 seconds. replaced memory and battery and booted. I then ran a repair when presented the option.

This information is intended for experienced users. It is not intended for basic users, hackers, or computer thieves. Please do not try any of following procedures if you are not familiar with computer hardware. I'll not be responsible for the use or misuse of this information, including personal injury, loss of data or hardware damage. So use it at your own risk.
A. By Using the Motherboard Jumper:
In most motherboards CMOS battery is soldered, which makes it difficult to remove the battery. In this case we use another method.
Almost all motherboards contain a jumper that can clear all CMOS settings along with the BIOS password. The location of this jumper varies depending upon the motherboard brand. You should read your motherboard manual to check its location. If you don't have the manual then look for the jumpers near the CMOS battery. Most of the manufacturer label the jumper as CLR, CLEAR, CLEAR CMOS, etc.
When you find the jumper, look carefully. There will be 3 pins and the jumper will be joining the center pin to either left or right pin. What you need to do, is remove the jumper and join the center pin to the opposite pin. e.g. if the jumper joins center pin to left pin, then remove it and join center pin to right pin. Now wait for a few seconds and then again remove the jumper and join the center pin to left pin.
Make sure to turn the PC off before opening the cabinet and resetting the jumper.

B. By Using Software:

I have found that BIOS/CMOS Password Recovery Tool is the most effective.:
BIOS/CMOS Password Recovery Tool is a program that works instantly to remove any lost or forgotten BIOS/CMOS password. Simply boot your PC to DOS and execute the program, and get access to forgotten BIOS/CMOS passwords in just seconds

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.

When I turn on the laptop it starts to come on then asks for password. what do i do. it will not let me go into setup with out password either


Sounds like someone has set a BIOS power on password. I suggest that you ring Toshiba, and then ask them for what the master password could be, otherwise, it will most probably have to go back to Toshiba, for the BIOS to be replaced with an unprotected copy of itself.

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.
