There is a jumper that will clear the BIOS password on most of the newer Toshiba laptops such as this model. Here is a link to an article showing where the jumpers are located on various models of Toshiba laptops.

Hello,
you're out of luck, unless you're familiar with "shorting" the bios chip.
Of course, you can contact Toshiba for a workaround. Proof of ownership is necessary.
good luck

Toshiba satellite a215-s7437 bios pw


For that you need to reset factory defaults settings for bios.
For reset bios u have to open back side of your laptop then u find motherbord circuit there.
pull cmos cell on motherbord for 15 minute then it reset to defaults.
Also u can reset with jumper settigns read carefully on mother bord there is 1 jumper near cmos cell u read there " bios reset or clear"
It is on 1-2 position right now set it in 2-3 position then power up then all bios settings are reset.
then again set it in 1-2 its original position.
Then it not want password.

Please help me to remove bios password on a laptop toshiba satellite A215-SP5811. my e-mail is asalazar@ssaver.gob.mx


There are a lot of Windows password revealers and crackers available, but I’ve found that Windows Password Recovery Tool is the most effective.:
it not only supports XP, 2000, and NT, I have personally tested it with Vista Home Premium and Ultimate. It works perfectly to reset any local user account to a blank password
You can use the ISO to burn a boot CD. Follow these instructions:
1. Download ISO file from http://www.windowspasswordsrecovery.com Windows Password Recovery Tool
2. Burn to a CD using a CD burning tool such as Nero or Roxio or MagicISO
3. Insert CD into drive and reboot.
4. You may have to select an option in the BIOS to get the computer to boot from the CD.
Booting up and clearing a password takes a minute or two works like a charm.

I have an Toshiba A215 and cant remember the admin password how can I unlock the system to change my password. I have a toshiba satellite a215-7417 and need to reset bios. I heard something about shorting...


Do not attempt to short out the jumpers on your own. As simple as it is, you can also kill the board. Also, the RTC battery will not effect the BIOS password. Take it in to the nearest Toshiba ASP center and they will reset the BIOS password as well as update it to the latest BIOS revision to avoid it from happening again UNDER WARRANTY. You do not have to pay for this repair.

Hi there, and welcome to FixYa.
Two ways to solve your BIOS problem:
One:
Removing the battery inside for the bios and find the jumper for clearing the CMOS.

Two:
Download your flash BIOS from here:

As you don’t have a diskette on your model, you might be able to install it on a memory key, and boot from that, depending on your previous BIOS setup???

BIOS PASSWORD


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 together...so 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 password......you 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!

Satellite A215-S7416 Bios Password


First of all i'll need to know what type of laptop it is,because different laptop has differents ways of reseting the BIOS. You can open the laptop and just take out the battery for a couple seconds and put it in back ( make sure that the power os unplugged before opening.) If the laptop has no battery then you will have to download or get a manual for the laptop hence then its going to tell you to touch 2 jumpers in order to reset the BIOS.
