This problem occurs when the internal battery dies and you loose data for the internal clock and possibly the bios. Refer to this link: http://209.167.114.38/support/Download/files_downloads/PSA60C/SA60EXUM.PDF and go to page 125 in the manual.

Here is what the manual says:

"The RTC battery may have become completely discharged while your computer was shipped, resulting in the followingerror message during startup:
BAD RTC BATTERY
BAD CHECKSUM (CMOS)
CHECK SYSTEM
To recharge the RTC battery, connect the computer and leave it powered on for 24 hours."

I have the same problem and have just started the 24 hour charge, so I don't know if it will fix mine. Just remember that you have to have it powered on those 24 hours to charge the RTC battery.

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.
