    So I need to short the 2 solder spots over the white rectangle to do this? I tried a couple times and I still have the computer asking for a bios password. Would it be possible to take a picture of the solder points?

  • fr0st42 Sep 23, 2010

    B600 is the solder point and it's under the memory stick so it's real easy to get at.

How to do i enter bios setup in toshiba 5205-s705


Hold down the F1 key, then, while continuing to hold it down, press the power switch. the system will turn on, then prompt you to check system and press F2 (thats from memory, it maybe F1 again) to enter BIOS.
With many Toshibas you can hold down any key to do this, as it simply generates a keyboard error, prompting the same message.
Hope this info helps.

When i power my computer up, its telling me to press f1 to continue or f2 to setup. I pressed f1 and it is asking me for a password. What is the password?


Ok this means that somebody has set a bios password on your computer, But we can fix this for you. I will try and explain this for you.

"The reason the computer is asking you to press F1 is because some settings in the Bios are not correct, such as memory size is incorrect or processor speed is not right, So what you need to do is un-plug the computer and once it is unplugged take open up the computer by removing the case or side to have access to the motherboard, once you see the motherboard locate the battery backup which will be similar to the picture below. Once you locate the battery, take it out, Now with the battery out press and hold the power button in for about 3-5 seconds to discharge the remaining power from the system. Once you have done this re-insert the battery and put the computer case back on and plug it back in and press the power button. You will then be prompted with the Press F1 to continue screen since we reset everything now, so you will want to press F2 to enter your bios in which should not have a password now, Once you are in the bios screen which should be a blue screen, look for the option to set to default usually its like F12 or some key like that but not sure on your system. Once you restore to default make sure to save changes and restart the computer and you should be all set and not have the F1 to continue screen any longer. I hope this helps.

Got to BIOS by pressing F2,check or any floppy setting and disable it even in boot order setup.This will solve your problem otherwise replace the lithium CMOS battery.

Replace CMOS battery


First you need to take the cover off your laptop and locate the cmos battery which looks like an oversize battery watch. With everything unplugged it just pulls out, note which side of the battery goes however. Place the new one in put everything back together and power the computer up. When it powers up it will finally get to the screen that says press "F1" for setup or "F2" to continue. Press F1 and you will get to your set up screen. You can go through each screen and select F5 which is the default factory settings or scoll across the top to the last screen which will give you the option of resetting all the settings to factory default with just pressing one of the F keys once only. Once you do that, just shutdown your computer and restart and it will start as normal. It may go through the F1 and F2 screen one more time but just press F2 and continue. After you log off the next time all your changes should be good. Let me know if I can help you in any other way.

Booting up my d600 laptop


This problem can be caused by two reasons:

1) The CMOS battery is damaged or displaced ( apart from the external battery, there is a small battery which is connected to the motherboard)

2) One of the RAM modules is displaced.


First make sure that the laptop displays the amount of RAM correctly. You do this by opening Control Panel -> System and noticing the amount of RAM.

If it is okay then press F2 when your computer starts of to enter bios. Make sure that the date and time displayed are okay, if not change them accordingly. Then Save the CMOS and exit.

If nothing changes then let me know

Bios


To enter the BIOS, press the Esc key when the Toshiba script shows up on the display. You should then get a message to press the F1 key to continue. Press the F1 key and you should be in the BIOS. The Boot sequence is on Page 2 of the Bios settings on many Toshibas. To get to page 2 press the page down key. Make sure you follow the screen prompts because your system may be slightly different.
