Hi sorry for the delay you could load some defaults there are other ways of getting your computer running if this fails i cant type these in now keep trying
During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS you can load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults ,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart

hope this helps

    1. On the edge of the motherboard - Most jumpers are located on the side of the motherboard for easy accessibility, verify by looking at all visible edges of the motherboard.
    2. By the CMOS battery - Some manufactures will place the jumper to clear the CMOS / BIOS password by the actual CMOS battery.
    3. By the processor - Some manufactures will place the jumpers by the processor of the computer.
    4. Under the keyboard or bottom of laptop - If you are working on a laptop computer the location of the dipswitch (almost never a jumper) can be under the keyboard or on the bottom of the laptop in a compartment such as the memory compartment.
    5. Other visible location - While it is possible that the jumpers / dipswitches may not be in a visible location, most manufactures try to make things easier by placing the jumpers / dipswitches in another visible location.

    hope this helps

    hi there is another way of getting past this bios password
    If you cannot access the machine after if has been powered up, it is still possible to get past the BIOS password. The BIOS password is stored in CMOS memory that is maintained while the PC is powered off by a small battery, which is attached to the motherboard.
    If you remove this battery, all CMOS information (including the BIOS password) will be lost. You will need to re-enter the correct CMOS setup information to use the machine. The machines owner or user will most likely be alarmed when it is discovered that the BIOS password has been deleted.
    On some motherboards, the battery is soldered to the motherboard, making it difficult to remove.
    If this is the case, you have another alternative. Somewhere on the motherboard you should find a jumper that will clear the BIOS password.
    If you have the motherboard documentation, you will know where that jumper is. If not, the jumper may be labeled on the motherboard. If you are not fortunate enough for either of these to be the case, you may be able to guess which jumper is the correct jumper. This jumper is usually standing alone near the battery. If you cannot locate this jumper, you might short both of the points where the battery connects to the motherboard.
    If all else fails, you may have to clear the BIOS password by resetting the RTC (Real Time Clock) IC (Integrated Circuit) on your motherboard.
    Many RTC's require an external battery. If your RTC is one of this type, you can clear the BIOS password just by unsocketing the RTC and reseating it.
    hope this helps

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.

Toshiba satellite l505d-s5007 Toshiba satellite l505d-s5007 laptop. Need jumper or dipswitch identification to short out or switch to the bios password.


I don't think that's available on laptops; I've never seen it on Toshiba models. There is usually a small battery to save BIOS info and keep the clock going when the main battery is out. It's either under the keyboard or near the memory or wireless card compartment. Remove the main battery and leave the adapter unplugged. Open the compartments and look for a a connector with just a red and black wire connected to it - if you see it going to a coin cell, that's the one you want. Unplug it and wait ten seconds. Plug it in and put everything back together. If you got the right connector, your computer will probably go straight to BIOS and ask you to set the time and date.

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.
