Hi


  • disconnect the power adapter, remove the battery back up
  • remove the screws from rear of notebook, exposing the larger portion of the area.

there is a small coin shaped silver object , its a lithium battery , (CMOS real time clock battery)

remove or disconnect it for about 1 minute. Place it back or reconnect it . screw the plastic part back to the rear of notebook , reconnect the battery back up and AC adapter. start computer -- this process of temporarily removing the small lithium battery will have reset the system to start up without password requirement.

i hope this helps

MY TOSHIBA SATELLITE A215-S6804 SHUT DOWN ONE DAY AND I TURNED IT BACK ON AND IS ASKING ME FOR A PHOENIX BIOS PASSWORD I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THAT IS CAN SOMEONE HELP MEPLEASE?


The BIOS password is necessary to allow the computer to load it's basic startup programs before Windows begins to load. If you don't know the password or have forgotten it, you will have to have someone clear and reset the BIOS by disassembling the computer.

No recovery disc - help with restore please?!


Hi Darren have a go with this one it may just work depending how mallicious the attack was .

windows default administrator account password is blank by default.

boot windows in sfae mode by pressing f5 key after theaventscreen has gone off when windows brings up the log in page use the administrator account and no password if this does not work and your laptop wont boot from cdrom then you will need to get a techie to open up the laptop and reset your bios so that it loses the bios password and then you can change the boot order so that you can booot from the cd rom drive

I Hope this was helpfull

Did you contact DELL. As long as you have the police report, they should be allowed to help you. That is a security issue. We can not tell you that because you could be someone with a stolen laptop. We have no way of knowing this. You would not want us to explain to someone how to break into your laptop would you?
