Try pressing the F12 key IMMEDIATELY after you press the power button to enter the BIOS manually.

You should be able to reset the BIOS to default values.

Testimonial: "Hi, FYI that did not work and I have also tried removing the battery for 3 days, that also does not work. Cannot find a Clear CMOS jumper and not even sure if it has one, based on what I have read so far."

    Also, try removing the battery and with the power cord removed, press the power button and hold it for 30 seconds. That might drain enough power to deplete the BIOS. Replace the battery and plug in the power cord again.

    You may need to push a combination of keys to access the BIOS.

    Try Fn and then press F12 right after you switch on the computer.

    Well, that didn't work either. I have been working on computers since the 60's and the problems are getting tougher these days. Thanks for your help.

    I have tried to find high resolution images of the motherboard but the images I have seen so far have just been poor. Sounds like a bit of a design fault on the board manufacturer. Toshiba have made a real mistake with this one.

Hello i have a toshiba a205-s5880 labtop and the its asking for a bioas password, so i went on line i need the jumper cable number


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



Hope this helps
