Toshiba satellite A215-S5818 bios password

Turned it on the other day, and all of a sudden it wants a password as soon as I power it up. It won't let me into the bios or setup. We never had it set up to ask for a password before, Don't know why it's asking now, and can't get into the laptop at all. Please help

    We have the same issue and there is a bulletin on the Toshiba support site.
    This needs to be fixed by removing the bios battery and resting bios, then download the bios from the website for your model and re-flashing the bios.
    We can do this, but we need the service manual from Toshiba on removing the bios battery. There is a rather risky method of shorting two pins on a small chip on the motherboard, however you risk damaging the chip an then you'd h ave to replace the entire motherboard.. this MB replacement can take several hours on some systems... $$$$

SOURCE: Toshiba satellite A215-S5818 bios password

If in fact there has been a password entered in the bios start-up or boot of the computer and it was not there before and all of a sudden it popped up you got a virus in your bootlog! The only way to access this is to locate the cmos battery toshiba generally locates this under the keyboard. This battery like most that are installed are soldered in place and resemble a large hearing aid battery. Here is the trick,Unplug the ac adapter and remove the power pack battery before you start If you can get a ground strap and secure it so as to prevent static discharge do so. If you are skilled enough to unsolder it that is the best way just remove one lead and let it stand for five minutes to enable the internal capacitors to discharge. If that is not your cup of tea you can momentarilly short the battery for no longer than five seconds, It is very low voltage and I have never had a problem doing this.When you reconnect the battery replace the power pack battery first then the ac adapter. When you power up the cmos will re-establish itself and go to your settings to make sure you have no password. Then exit saving you settins to the cmos . In some cases you may have to flash the bios but this should br done by a tech as it could permenently damage it...Good luck, Be mucho blessed ...Mark

I have a satellite A215 - s5818 It started with it just shutting down all of a sudden . reboot and it may work for a while and it would shut down again . Now I can hear it power up but no display on...

his is sound as though your power adapter is not charging your laptop battery and the battery is trying to preserve what power it has left to power up the screen as you demand but there is no voltage to do so.
1. you will need another power supply adapter from what you have describe here and or a battery replacement.
if you can possibly get an equivalent power adapter for your unit and connect it to see if you get power up then you need to replace the power adapter.
I hope this helps. Have a great day!

My Toshiba A215-S5818 Shows up enter password


The problem can be due to incorrect power on password prompt. This problem is noticed with some older BIOS versions. The system is looking for a non-existing power-on password.

The only solution for this is to send the system back to Toshiba. They will repair this problem free of cost.

Toshiba satellite A215-S5818 bios password

This should be able to be solved by opening the Ram bay and shorting out two solder points. Usually marked with a "xxx". The notebook should be started with these solder points shorted. Once the pc is on, it should go through the normal process without asking for a bios password. Once the pc is restarted, the CMOS password should disappear.
