Hi,
Sounds a bit dodgy to me.
Where did you get this information From. I hope you removed the battery before you did any of this stuff.
If you did,nt you could have damaged-RAM-CPU-Motherboard.
heres your only suggestion. if you have an external monitor output ( usually on The Back ) behind a pull down flap or cover.
Plug a standard pc monitor into this, boot up the laptop, so that you can at least view whats going on in there.
Are you getting any Beep Codes ?

You have to remove the CMOS battery then put it back in to reset the password. The CMOS battery is on the motherboard itself, so you will need to strip down the computer to the motherboard and do it. The battery looks like a little watch battery. There are a few online tutorials you can find on google to take apart your computer.

    once you have everything taken apart and the motherboard is out, you will see the little round CMOS battery. It may be covered up by a piece of material, so look very closely.

Remove BIOS Password on Toshiba Satelitte A135-S4637


If your system BIOS password was set and your forget it or if say another person or child set it you can reset the password with the steps below. This requires partially opening the case and shorting a part of the motherboard. If you are not comfortable doing this, get a technician to do it.

1) Remove Laptop Battery

2) Take off Memory Cover

3) Using two thumbs spread clips to outside and
pull out RAM memory. Repeat this if you have 2 modules.

4) Gently remove the vinyl cover on the motherboard. Be careful because it can rip.

5) Position the laptop so that the memory slots are facing away from you. Look for the silkscreen marking, "J1". Inside the square next to it looks like two E's one inside the other. Take a wire and short these Es out and place the other end of the wire on the case post located in the center top. Hold for about 15-20 seconds.

6) Put the vinyl cover back on.

7) Place back your RAM memory

8) Put the cover back on.

9) Put battery back in.

10) Turn the unit on, it should mention that the CMOS was reset. You should see a selection of F1
or F2 for setup. Using the F2 gets you into the Bios
menu where you reset the time and date. Then Tab over to
the Security setting tab and change your passwords. Now
hit F10 key to save the settings and your computer should reboot.

Your BIOS password should now be complete.

Resetting the bios password for Toshiba Laptop


It working with the Satellite A135


Power unit off. Disconnect AC power. Remove battery. Remove the memory cover screw, memory cover and the memory modules. Peel back the black lebel back from memory module 1, I soldered PAD500 solder pads (to short circuit them), install one memory memory in slot 2 and turned notebook on, it erase the password and boot without asking for one. Then power off desolder PAD500, replace mylar. Replace memory modules. Replace battery. Power up unit, replace memory cover and screw. Whalá!! the password gone, and you can enter to bios setup to set a new password if you want.

What are you trying to do? Replace the CMOS battery, or reset a BIOS password?

This is what the CMOS battery looks like,

http://www.ebay.com/itm/CMOS-RTC-Battery-Toshiba-Satellite-A210-A215-Series-/270970735656?_trksid=p4340.m263&_trkparms=algo%3DSIC%26its%3DI%252BC%26itu%3DUCI%252BIA%252BUA%252BFICS%252BUFI%26otn%3D15%26pmod%3D160437620636%26ps%3D63%26clkid%3D8748715535548215160


Now view this pictorial disassembly guide,

Page 3 - http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/toshiba-satellite-a205/laptop-disassembly-3.htm

Go to the photo in Step 17, and click on it to enlarge.
See the CMOS battery in the middle/left?

Round silvery looking object. Go straight down from the red arrow to the far left.

That is how to access the CMOS battery.
(Yes I know it states Satellite A200/A205. Same for the A215)

Now BIOS password reset?
Do not know where the two copper pads are to briefly short out. Suspect under the Ram Memory modules, (And under a small sheet of Mylar plastic), or under the Wireless Modem. (And under a small sheet of Mylar plastic)

The links on this solution I gave may help,

You cannot reset a HDD password (if its a bitlocker one) and you have lost your encryption key reset file and forgot password.
if you mean the BIOS/Power on password then try this
Remove Laptop Battery Remove Memory Cover Spread spring clips to outside and pull out RAM memory Remove clear vinyl label opposite RAM memory slots In the upper left corner you will see JOPEN1 with a white silkscreen square Inside the square you will see what looks like the letter T over a U. Using a metal paper clip short the U to the Silver 1/4"post connecting the motherboard to the laptop case and hold it for 25 -30 seconds. Place back your RAM memory, put in the laptop battery and test start laptop. you should see a selection of F1 or F2 for setup.

I have dell vostro 1500 laptop i forget my bios password my service tag is 39X94F1=595b


Hello,

Follow the steps below to reset/remove the bios password.

  1. Turn off your computer.
  2. Remove the battery and disconnect the power cord.
  3. Turn over the laptop and unscrew the small cover which is retained by only one screw.jbertrand_ba_1.jpg
  4. Once the cover is removed, you will find the memory module.

jbertrand_ba_2.jpg

Now under the memory module, you will find a blue plastic sleeve connected to the mainboard with a single wire. Disconnect the wire and wait about 30 seconds - 1 minute before reconnecting it. Replace memory module and put back the cover and screw it.

Replace the battery and reconnect the power cord.

Turn on the laptop and you will not be prompted for a password.

If you would like to put another BIOS password, restart the computer and enter the BIOS setup and there you will be able to define a new password.
