Question about Toshiba Satellite A135-S4527 Notebook
guys. So I bought this laptop almost a couple of years ago, but then my
wife got a new computer from work, so I started using her (better)
laptop instead, and my Satellite spent some time collecting dust in the
garage. Now I want to give the Toshiba to my nephew, but I cannot
remember the password when the computer boots up. As soon as I start
the computer, there is a black screen with a blue box in the middle
that asks me for my password.
I'm pretty tech savvy so I did some research and found that I'm not the only one with the problem. However, the only solutions involve putting a floppy disk in the laptop with a keydisk.exe program on it... but guess what... it doesn't have a floppy drive in the laptop!
The only other solution I heard was to take apart the laptop, expose the motherboard, and take out then put back in a small battery that looks like a nickel. I don't feel very comfortable taking apart a laptop...
So I'm wondering what do I do now? I don't have the Windows install CD... Please help!
You will need to take the machine apart and short a jumper on the system board, if you do not know what you are doing I recommend that you take your machine to a repair shop.
You want to look on the system board for a jumper called J45 - this will allow you to short the computer and remove the BIOS password.
ONLY DO THIS IF YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING!!
