    Reasoning? Further clarification is needed, as to why you wish to access BIOS on the laptop without going the proper way.

System (BIOS) Password Reset

If you have forgotten your BIOS or system password, there are no software tricks or magical gimmicks that will get the password cleared. Laptops are different in that they are designed to not work with “backdoors” etc. for security reasons. There is one true way that works most of the time and that is hardware.
The Cmos (RTC) battery that is mounted on the motherboard in most cases holds the key, if your motherboard has the battery that is connected to the motherboard by using a two wire socket that plugs into the MOBO, then here is the procedure.
On the motherboard where the battery plugs into, you will see two pins sticking straight up, these engage the plug on the battery side. These two pins have to be “shorted” and then the motherboard powered up for approx. 30 seconds, then power down the system and replace the Cmos battery and reboot. Your password problem should be cleared up. The best way to “short” the pins is get another cmos battery and cut the wires from the battery part, bare the ends and twist together, this will short the pins. Make sure you tape the connection good on the jumper you just made….don’t want to touch anything else with powered up bare wires. Good luck.

    Why not just use a standard jumper to short?

Can I access the memory module under the keyboard to upgrade with a 1GB memory module on my Toshiba M55 3293 Laptop?

The link above has a picture of where the memory cover is on the bottom it is basically right in the middle. Once you remove the screw then you can install/upgrade the ram. You can use this video as a guide as to how it is done.

Also make sure you have the correct/compatible ram for your laptop.
If you have any other questions let me know.
Thank you,

My right arrow key will not work, the key does not respond in any fashion.


Contact could be most probably defective or dirty. You may find a new keyboard on ebay at a very affordable price : 10-30$. Have it replaced by a professional.

Satellite (A75S206) runs well from outlet but never from battery. Was told that mobo can't accept dc. Need new mobo. True?


hello loyd516,

Have you tried a new battery? They are much much cheaper, and a whole lot easier to replace than a motherboard.

Here are replacement batteries that I found searching with Google.
http://www.google.com/products?q=Satellite+A75-S206+battery&hl=en

According to Toshiba, there has been a battery recall for your specific model.
If that is the case I would definitely contact Toshiba support about it. Maybe you will get a free battery out of the deal. Who knows.
Here is the link and the list(your model is highlighted)
