    this does not answer my question but this is how far I got.....



    Well I lost out on this Laptop! Fought with Toshiba for 3 days... No one will help!! Only had this pc for 5 months!! Bought it in the states and I live in Canada!

    No this particular model is not posted on Toshiba's site about the bios password problem for my model... Only blank screen problem for my model I have..... A215-S5818.

    To fix the Bios even know it's still under warrenty,..... they want to ship me a box to sent this laptop somewhere past Toronto Ontario Canada and I have to pay for shipping and the repair!! So my $1250.00 laptop is now a door stop.

    Very unsatisfied with Toshiba's customer & tech support! I will nenver buy a Toshiba product again! Just bought a new HP laptop now.

My Toshiba A215-S5818 Shows up enter password


Hello,

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.

For that you need to reset factory defaults settings for bios.
For reset bios u have to open back side of your laptop then u find motherbord circuit there.
pull cmos cell on motherbord for 15 minute then it reset to defaults.
Also u can reset with jumper settigns read carefully on mother bord there is 1 jumper near cmos cell u read there " bios reset or clear"
It is on 1-2 position right now set it in 2-3 position then power up then all bios settings are reset.
then again set it in 1-2 its original position.
Then it not want password.

I have an Toshiba A215 and cant remember the admin password how can I unlock the system to change my password. I have a toshiba satellite a215-7417 and need to reset bios. I heard something about shorting...


Do not attempt to short out the jumpers on your own. As simple as it is, you can also kill the board. Also, the RTC battery will not effect the BIOS password. Take it in to the nearest Toshiba ASP center and they will reset the BIOS password as well as update it to the latest BIOS revision to avoid it from happening again UNDER WARRANTY. You do not have to pay for this repair.

Hi there, and welcome to FixYa.
Two ways to solve your BIOS problem:
One:
Removing the battery inside for the bios and find the jumper for clearing the CMOS.

Two:
Download your flash BIOS from here:

As you don’t have a diskette on your model, you might be able to install it on a memory key, and boot from that, depending on your previous BIOS setup???
