You can by shorting the CMOS/BIOS battery connector for 30 sec's with a resister pack (2.4 KOhms), but if you don't have any PC repair experience, don't try it!

"You can blow the motherboard if you get it wrong.."

I suggest you take it to a Toshiba repair shop, it will cost about $100 to have them do it for you.

    I recently bought a Toshiba Satellite A305-S6916 from a guy, he gave me some codes to it, but not a password. I don't have it and how can I unlock the laptop?


    If the system has a start up password and you do not have it you will need to contact Toshiba. The information you are looking for is not public to help protect against laptop theft. If the laptop is not reported as stolen, Toshiba will unlock it for a fee.

    Good luck, Jim

    My laptop is a Toshiba satellite and after i login a black screen


    Hi there. If you've had the laptop under a year, then you can take it back to the place where you bought it, and they can take a look. If anything's wrong, then it can be fixed under the manufacturer's warranty, which is normally for 12 months from purchase.

    One thing I'd like to ask, can you see anything behind the black screen? I ask this, as I had a friend who had similar problem, but it was a faint black, with the cursor flashing, and he could faintly see the desktop in the background. I was wondering if this was the same for you.
