Toshiba A215-4757 bios password reset guarenteed FIX

Im posting this cause i fixed it on my own cause there is no solution anywhere else so im going to tell u how. U have to take out the motherboard completely and turn it upsidedown and there is the battery. Unsolder the battery, i waited half hour, then resolder it on and put it all back together and no more password!!!!! be careful not to mess up the motherboard!! If u want me to do it e-mail me at: warnedeigrp@yahoo.com and i will do it for 49.99 instead of Toshiba's 425.00!!

How to bypass setup password on a toshiba satellite A105-S4074


You can fix this by removing first removing all power, then remove the plastic cover above the keyboard, removing removing the two keyboard screws.
You'll need to fold the keyboard in such a way that you don't damage the cable.
You will see the wifi card just to the right. It's the only card there. It is held in place by spring clips. Remove the card from the connector.
There are two solder contact points labeled "C88". Connect the power adapter to the laptop now. Short the two contact of "C88" and press the power on button. The unit should boot to the windows screen. Once it boots, you'll have to update to the latest BIOS.

Hi, I need some help (BIOS locked)...


ok i found a couple more things...apparently you dont have to remove the battery.. I found this site that tells you two "jumpers" (solder squares) C88 i believe under the network card. But if you follow this link and follow the directions it will get you going again.

I don't know exactly at what stage you are at and i hope i didn't cause any trouble but this normally is how we take care of this problem. Unless once in a blue moon we come across one like this.
