How do you reset a Toshiba Satellite L305D Power on Password?

I unfortunately lent my laptop out to my brother to do a term paper on and being the bright college student he thinks he is ,he for some unknown reason went ionto my bios and put a power on password that he ''claims''he does'nt remember .I tried taking out the battery , holding the left shift key down during boot,but it won't even read from the cd/dvd drive because it goes directly to the password screen. I would greatly appreciate any suggestions and i was wondering if the parellel port reset works?

    You take this very bright college student, get him to buy you a new Toshiba or figure out what the password is. You're pretty much stuck without that password.

To reset the password on this model, you need to:

  • Power off the computer, flip it over, and open the ram door
  • Find a small jumper to the left of memory module 0 (the one closest to the board).
  • Use a screwdriver to jump this pad while you turn the computer on
  • Continue jumping the pad until after the splash screen dissappears
  • If successfull the password prompt will go away. If not, try try again.
  • When successful, make haste to update your bios: http://cdgenp01.csd.toshiba.com/cont...s/slb8v140.exe Toshiba's have a nasty habit of setting bios passwords on their own. I'm assuming thats why you're here.

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

To reset the BIOS you need to open the laptop, access the motherboard and remove the round battery on the motherboard (can't miss it cause it looks like a watch battery)

Leave it out for 1 minute then replace it.

This will reset your BIOS to default and remove the password

How do i reset my bios password on my toshiba satellite L305D-S5895 my brother set it on my comp not knowing what he was doing now i cant get in it at all...


To reset the BIOS read the information from this <a href="http://www.fixya.com/support/r7229632-reset_or_remove_bios_password">link</a>.

In case of your laptop the easiest method would be using software from Hiren's Boot CD as it's pretty hard to open it up and reach for the CMOS battery or the jumper.

How do i reset the bios password on a toshiba satellite L305d-s5934 labtop


Usually, there is the CMOS battery located in your laptop's main board. You just have to take that battery off for like 3 minutes and then return it back. You will have to open your laptop's screws underneath. If this laptop is still under warranty, do not open it as it will revoke the warranty seal. Just take if to an authorized service center and let them do it for you for free.

That's just the way Windows works when power is cut off. You should set your Control Panel/Power settings to put the PC into hibernation if it's left alone for too long.
