How do I clear the Bios password on a toshiba satellite L305D-S5974. When it boots I get a blue enter password screen. I tried to short B500 leads under the memory but it does nothing. Any body know the backdoor password to H2 bios? My kid set a password and has now forgotten it.

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 ;)

My bios password is unknown and i can not access the actual settings. i can however boot into windows.

Normally, Toshiba may have a default password such as "toshiba", try that first.

If not successful, then power down the laptop, remove the battery for about 30-45 minutes, then power back and go into bios, the password should be gone.

It is important to remember that with this method, the bios goes back to factory defaults and the time and date may have to be reset.

It neither do not remove the password, then the bios has it's own battery and would have to be accessed and removed to clear out the password. I do not recommend this option unless you
are knowledgable about disassembling the portion on the unit to get to the battery.

Good Luck

Hello, When I tried to reinstall windows on a formated drive, after I changed the boot sequence , before starting bios it requires a password. Plese help

Easiest way is to reset the BIOS. If you remove the battery, and leave it unplugged and without it's main battery and BIOS battery, it should clear it.

Toshiba A215 Password Removal By purpledog1 on Aug 18, 2008
Follow these steps to remove / disable the BIOS (CMOS) Password on the Satellite A210 / A215 (PSAFGx ) models:

1. Turn the computer OFF, if it's on.

2. Remove the memory module cover, on the bottom of the computer.

3. Check the configuration of memory modules in the two sockets. It's necessary to have a memory module present in the outermost socket only.
  • If there is a memory module in only the outermost socket (the one farthest from the system board), then continue to step 4.
  • If there is a memory module in only the innermost socket, move it to the outermost socket.
  • If there are memory modules in both sockets, remove them both, then re-insert one of them into the outermost socket.
4. With the computer oriented as in the photo above, carefully peel back the black Mylar film. Pull this film to the side enough to expose the B500 solder pads (see photo below). Tape the film to the computer's case, as shown. Do not remove the film completely, because it may be difficult to re-attach it correctly.

5. Short the B500 solder pads on the system board. Needle-nose pliers or a flat-blade screwdriver works well to short them.

6. While continuing to short-circuit the solder pads, turn the computer on, and continue shorting the pads until the Toshiba Logo Screen disappears.

7. Re-position the Mylar film over the system board.

8. If you removed a memory module, turn the computer OFF, then re-insert it.

9. Re-attach the memory slot cover.

10. Restart the computer to verify that the password prompt no longer appears. If it does still appear, then repeat this procedure, starting with step 1.

The laptop is not seeing any hard drive. remove the panel underneath (2 screws) and remove and refit the hard drive. If it still does not work then enter the bios by hitting the F2 key while booting and look at that page. under HDD model name and hdd serial number there should be information on the drive. If there is such info then the drive is being seen but cannot be accessed. Anyway it looks like the drive has had it. You will need to find your windows disk when you fit a new drive and reinstall windows.

How do I clear the CMOS password on my Satellite


To remove the bios (cmos) password, With notebook turned off;

Open Wi-Fi Cover that's located under the laptop and remove the WiFi card, locate & Short Out pin JP1 for 15 Seconds, or short out pin G1 for 15 seconds.

Sometimes you have to short the pins out while turning the laptop on.

The power on (bios) password will now be cleared so you will need to enter the bios to input the date and time.
