Hello,
I am not sure that the removal of the CMOS battery would erase the passord on boot. Better take it to a Toshiba Certified Service Center.
Hope it helps.

Do not attempt to short out the jumpers on your own. As simple as it is, you can also kill the board. Also, the RTC battery will not effect the BIOS password. Take it in to the nearest Toshiba ASP center and they will reset the BIOS password as well as update it to the latest BIOS revision to avoid it from happening again UNDER WARRANTY. You do not have to pay for this repair.

SOURCE: toshiba satilite a215 s7422 bios password how to cleare

You'll need a special tool that only Toshiba has. I believe you can get yours cleared for FREE if you tell them that all of a sudden out of nowhere you have a bios password. Stick to that story because they've already admitted to the problem with many of their laptops. You'll have to find an authorized Toshiba repair center to take care of it for you. Otherwise I believe they charge around $100 to clear it.

Don't bother to try the cmos battery trick, it doesn't work on your model. The password is stored on an onboard chip.

If you contact www.toshiba.com and assuming that is where you downloaded the firmware from, the tech guys will answer your question. If you got the bios firmware upgrade from elswhere, talk to the supplier for a password.

Toshiba satellite a215-s4697 Please help me how to reset password


Hi gv2jae..

Start up your computer
1. Keep pressing "F8" as the laptop computer starts.
2. When the window "Advanced Boot Options" opens, choose "Safe Mode" with arrow key and confim by pressing the Enter key, then PC enters the Safe Mode.
3. Once you are in the Safe mode Click "Administrator" on the Windows login screen.
Take note that you have set the Administrator password before, you need to input the changed password instead of leaving "Password" field blank.
4. Then click Start > Control Panel > User Accounts > Select the account that is locked and change the password.
5. Restart laptop and login into the account you just created using your new password.

it could have failed,but its more likely you have sequential procedures for the power button,like holding it down for more than 5 seconds etc--you might have just put your machine into "standby mode"--check manufacturers site for power key process--good luck!

It means that your laptop has a BIOS password associated with it powering on and will not go any further until the correct password is given. It will then go on to the boot up screen. IN most cases these passwords can be reset by "shorting" the teo pins on the cmos battery socket and then powering the laptop up. you then place the normal cmos battery plug back in place and reboot the laptop, there should be no more password but the BIOS will have to be reset as far as the correct time and date.
