What is the password I need to enter on the black screen on my toshiba satelite C855


more info please, you say black screen??? you mean a starup password before it loads the bios, ie well before windows starts, or is it as windows is starting up, more info please, and i have 2 possible fixes, both a little complicated as you may need to open the laptop up to remove the small round internal battery for 10mins then replace or i'll try and guide you to reseting the bios by bridging a couple of jumpers located near or behind your Ram chips.
This can be complicated and if your not comfortable in taking things apart i dont recommend it, so taking it to a pc shop will help but not sure how much it will cost.

best regards

Where can I find my jumper to reset my bio password on my hp computer?


On the edge of the motherboard - Most jumpers are located on the side of the motherboard for easy accessibility, verify by looking at all visible edges of the motherboard.

By the CMOS battery - Some manufactures will place the jumper to clear the CMOS / BIOS password by the actual cmos battery.

By the processor - Some manufactures will place the jumpers by the processor of the computer.

Under the keyboard or bottom of laptop - If you are working on a laptop computer the location of the dipswitch (almost never a jumper) can be under the keyboard or on the bottom of the laptop in a compartment such as the memory compartment.

Other visible location - While it is possible that the jumpers / dipswitches may not be in a visible location, most manufactures try to make things easier by placing the jumpers / dipswitches in another visible location.

If you cannot access the machine after if has been powered up, it is still possible to get past the BIOS password. The BIOS password is stored in CMOS memory that is maintained while the PC is powered off by a small battery, which is attached to the motherboard. If you remove this battery, all CMOS information (including the BIOS password) will be lost. You will need to re-enter the correct CMOS setup information to use the machine. The machines owner or user will most likely be alarmed when it is discovered that the BIOS password has been deleted.

On some motherboards, the battery is soldered to the motherboard, making it difficult to remove. If this is the case, you have another alternative. Somewhere on the motherboard you should find a jumper that will clear the BIOS password. If you have the motherboard documentation, you will know where that jumper is. If not, the jumper may be labeled on the motherboard. If you are not fortunate enough for either of these to be the case, you may be able to guess which jumper is the correct jumper. This jumper is usually standing alone near the battery. If you cannot locate this jumper, you might short both of the points where the battery connects to the motherboard.

If all else fails, you may have to clear the BIOS password by resetting the RTC (Real Time Clock) IC (Integrated Circuit) on your motherboard.


hope this helps

Where is the BIOS battery for the dell msi U100


Most likely the BIOS battery is a button battery approx. 20mm dia. usually a 3 volt lithium battery (CR2032)
It is located in a battery holder somewhere on the motherboard, you may need to remove or lift some components out of the way to get a clear view of the motherboard.

Dracee,
Did someone use the laptop and set a password?
You can reset the BIOS password as follows:
Power OFF the laptop.
Open an access door on the bottom of the laptop.
remove the motherboard battery (round disc battery) for a few minutes.

-- or --

Find the two "reset pins" located near the round disc battery or near the CMOS BIOS chip. Short the two pins for 5 seconds.
Cloase up the laptop and start it. *done*

C840 need to locate bios chip


If you are just looking to get past the power on password, there are two easy ways and do not require you to mess with the BIOS chip itself.

1. Unplug power cord from computer, then hit the power button to discharge stored electricity (safety). Open up your computer case and look for your battery. It is just a thin lithium battery. After you have found it, remove it. Leave it out for a few seconds (I always leave it out around 30 seconds) and put it back in. Then plug the computer back in and it should now be password free.

2. Locate (if equipped) the CMOS jumper. It usually is just like a hard drive jumper and covers 2 pins out of 3 that are in a row. Make it jump the pin that was not jumped before. Then move it back to original setting and boot up your computer...no more password.

Hope this helps.

Problem on start up


there should be a cmos reset jumper on the motherboard somewhere close to the bios chip. Given you didn't mention the actual model and brand of mobo i cannot be certain. Also you can remove the little watch battery for a few minutes and it too should reset the bios.

Battery location


You would have to totally rip apart the laptop to get to it, and on some HP models the batteries are soldered on. Also, on some modern laptops pulling the CMOS battery won't reset the password anyways.
A more effective solution is to call hp and tell them you need to reset the BIOS password on your laptop. You will have to provide them a proof of purchase for the product. After you provide that (usually fax or scan of receipt ) they will give you instructions on how to reset it.
