It would be worth phoning the technical hotline shown on the uk web site as they are very good with this sort of error.
Hope you get it sorted out but I had a Samsung laptop and the only cure was to reformat the drive, after saving all my data. When I reinstalled the system all was fine until I installed Microsoft Office Update, the CD ROM stopped working. I use OpenOffice now with no problems at all.

    thanks very much for taking your time, I was trying everything before resigning to a reformat, as I have many work apps and particular configurations.

    thanks again and a very Happy New Year.

I can't remember my Toshiba L300 setup password to enable me boot from CD.

There is usually a couple of pads underneath the laptop that will short out the BIOS battery which will reset the BIOS settings.

  • Disconnect the AC and remove the battery
  • Remove the memory
  • Peel back the black plastic film underneath but don't remove it entirely
  • Attach a piece of adhesive tape on the underside
  • Insert a memory stick
  • Stick the tape down on the case
  • You now have access to the two shorting pads named B500
  • Reconnect the AC and short out these pads.
  • Power on the laptop with these pads shorted out until the Toshiba logo disappears
  • Remove the AC and remove the memory stick
  • Remove the tape and replace the black plastic film
  • Reinstall all the memory
  • Replace the battery and the AC
This should have wiped out the BIOS passwords. Use enter to get into the password protected areas.

I have a Toshiba Satellite L465 S4056. My fan runs on high constantly, but my computer isn't hot. Is there anything I can do to make it not run on high?

Hi, if the airways are clean and the laptop does not get hot it is possible that your computer needs bios updates... first go into the bios to see what version you have then go to toshiba web site and search your model support and download section, if there is a bios update see if the version is newer than what's on your computer, if it is then sure follow the instruction to update.... I hope that helps.

I forget my bios password for Toshiba any master password to reset the bios password....? where can i find the jumper on the mother board..?

If you can access to Windows Vista, it's as easy as to reflash the bios for your laptop-it will reset the bios password automatically. You can download the bios to reflash it from:

A) Turn the laptop off if it's on.
B) Disconnect the AC adapter, and remove the Battery
C) Turn the laptop over, remove the Memory Module Compartment Cover. (1 screw)
D) Remove all ram memory modules. Lay them on a non-static surface.
E) View this photo,

F) With the computer situated as in the photo above, grab the Mylar film by the upper left corner.
Peel it back to the Right. DO NOT peel it off!
Just peel it back far enough to expose the B500 solder pads.

G) Attach a 4 inch piece of tape to the underside of the Mylar film, as shown in the above photo.
(Do not remove the Mylar film because it might be difficult to reattach properly later.
It has to be in THAT particular position when you are done)

H) Inset one of the memory modules into the inside ram memory slot. This is Ram Memory slot 1.
The ram memory slot that is closest to the BOTTOM. 
(There are slots for two ram memory modules. One at the bottom, one at the top. The top is closest to the Memory Compartment Door)

I) Secure the tape to the laptop body, to keep the Mylar film from touching the solder pads. (B500)

J) Reconnect the AC adapter. Plug the adapter into power.
Short across the tow solder pads, (B500) with a pair of needle-nose pliers, or a flat bladed screwdriver.

K) While continuing to short the solder pads, turn the laptop on, and continue shorting the solder pads until the Toshiba logo disappears.
If the BIOS password has been successfully removed, the laptop will not present a BIOS password prompt before Windows starts.

L) Shut down Windows normally making sure the laptop has completely turned off.

M) Disconnect the AC adapter

N) Remove the ram memory module, and remove the tape. Reposition the Mylar film back into place.

O) Reinstall all ram memory modules, reinstall the Memory Compartment Cover.
Reinsert the Battery, and the AC adapter.

P) Restart the laptop to verify the BIOS password prompt no longer appears.
If it does repeat this procedure beginning with A above.

MAKE SURE you are wearing an ESD wrist strap, and have the alligator clip attached to a good ground!

Example of an ESD wrist strap,

[HDD password prompt comes up?
Press the spacebar and press the Enter key ]

During BIOS update toshiba m305-s4910 froze for several hours. I disconnected the battery and connected it, and I got 2 bips and a black screen. the keyboard dose not respond.

For that first you need to open back cover of laptop reconnect RAM memory . Then you need to upgrade bios. For that download bios update from toshiba web sites then upgrade bios again then it will be working fine. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.

Toshiba Satellite P205D-S7802 w/ display driver stop working

What Operating System are you running? Is this OS the original OS that comes with the computer?

I would recommend running windows update and when given the option choose "Custom". This will present options otherwise unavailable, such as optional and hardware updates. If this does not work, I suggest you respond back with the OS version so we can go forward with fixing your issue.

Good Luck!

There is a trick to resetting the BIOS password , but it requires you to open the laptop and get to the motherboard. Now I don't know your level of expertise in that field , but laptops can be very trick to pull apart and put back if you are not comfortable doing it , please take it to a professional as I don't want to see you damage your laptop!

Back to resetting the need to access the motherboard of the laptop....on the motherboard is a small circular battery (it is flat and silver)..... that needs to be disconnected from the motherboard to reset all the BIOS information...depending on the model of the laptop , you may be able to completely remove the battery from the clip it is in , or you may need to disconnect the wire running from the batter to motherboard. Below I have put some example pictures to make it clear.

Removing That Battery:

Disconnecting The Cable:

After disconnecting it/removing it place it back in/reconnect it , put the laptop back together and boot up....the password will be reset! Below is a picture just in case you have trouble finding the battery

If this post helped you please leave a rating, it is well appreciated, thanks!
