Because the BIOS is stored in ROM, it must have a constant power supply to store any changes you make to it, otherwise it would reset every time you disconnected your laptop from AC power. Removing power to the BIOS resets it to factory settings and involves disconnecting a small battery attached to the motherboard. On many laptops, the BIOS battery is easily accessible through a door on the bottom of the unit. Unplug the computer, remove the main battery and touch something metal to ground yourself. Remove any screws holding the BIOS battery door in place. Then identify the battery, (it is generally a small lithium "watch" battery), and remove it taking care not to damage any surrounding circuitry. Let the computer rest for a twenty minutes or so discharge any remaining power, and replace the battery If your laptop does not have an easily accessible door for the BIOS battery, you may have to dive deeper and disassemble the computer to find it. Consult your laptop manufacturer's website for information on replacing or removing the BIOS battery from your model.

Need Bios Password


I can't find a decent manual for your laptop but there will be 2 pins on the motherboard that will say BIOS Clear. Short these 2 pins and turn the computer on. This is the only way to bypass the BIOS password. This operation will clear the BIOS and reset to factory defaults. After the BIOS is cleared, turn the computer off and take off the short.

If you don't know the password to the BIOS - you're screwed. There's absolutely no way to recover it back. You may take it to a computer repair shop or Toshiba Repair place and let them reset the BIOS Password.

There is no backdoor password, you'll have to take it to an authorized Toshiba repair center.

You can find one here.

They usually charge about 100 to remove the password, BUT if you keep insisting that you didn't set the password they'll probably remove it for free shhhh ;)

Toshiba has had a problem with their laptops locking out the system with a BIOS password. They are providing support for some of their users if you call them by Oct 31 2010. I have been able to get 2 laptops fixed by Toshiba because of this problem.

The down side of this is that you have to send them your laptop so they can do the repair.

Hope this helps

I need to repair the power socket, how does the case come off?


The DC harness on this model is a known fault. Toshiba UK will repair this power harness free of charge even if the unit is out of it's warranty period. I see yours is the US unit but I would imagine it is a free service over there too. Contact Toshiba customer support, explain the DC harness is loose inside your system and ask if it is a free repair due to being a known fault on that range of laptops. Hope this helps,

Need to reset my bios password on toshiba satellite a135-s2286


Hi,

you need to upen up your toshiba, and disconnect the internal battery, not the big one. Or, maybe a simpler method - call toshiba to check if there is a master password from them... :-)

TOSHIBA


your motherboard's configurations is set to ask for password as soon as booting
try using the password Toshiba ( with capital T ) or toshiba ( small t ) .. normally that's the backdoor password for Toshiba laptops .. if either don't work .. try to hold the left Shift key as soon as you boot the pc .. this also can be a solution to bypass the password.. if none is working let me know :)
