I bought a used toshiba L505D-LS5007 and it had a bios password on it. so I changed the password to nothing (left it blank) and now when I try to access the BIOS it asks me for a password and nothing works!!! Is there any way to reset it? like shorting the CMOS on a desktop???

Need to see location of cmos battery on a toshiba satellite l505d


It's soldered to the bottom of the motherboard,

Scroll down to Step 23 , and click on the photo.

Main article,

http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba-Satellite-L505-L505D/remove-laptop-motherboard-1.htm

NOTE*
You will be unsoldering a solder connection on a BATTERY.
Need to be good, or the battery could bl-ow up.

Make SURE you have no Static on your body, OR use an ESD wrist strap, and connect the alligator clip to a Good ground source. (Average cost is around $3 to $6)

I hope this is because the laptop will not keep the time, and date.
You CANNOT reset a BIOS password this way.

Toshiba's have a small capacitor in line, that stores a small residual amount of power. Enough to keep that BIOS password set, even if the CMOS battery is taken out for days, weeks, or months.

There are two SMALL copper pads that are shorted out BRIEFLY, with a jumper wire.

unplug laptop and remove battery. Take out both memory sticks and locate on the motherboard under sticks two points marked with ***. Replace one memory stick, plug ac adapter back up and while jumping the two points at the *** (use paperclip, flathead screwdriver or other metal object to connect the points) power up computer. This, if done properly, will reset bios, removing password.

I bought a Toshiba Satellite L505D-S6952 at A swap meet.They didnt tell me the Password -now I cant find them and I cant use my laptop because I cant bypass the password. please can you help me????


Sure are you looking for the bios password or the OS password?
If your looking for the OS password you can use an program that is advailble on line to recover the password, this will cost you money to get.
I would say to buy the OS cd and reload the system..

You can order replacement cd's from them, or just go buy an OS cd from your computer shop.
