Question about Toshiba Computers & Internet
Remove the CMOS/BIOS battery and switch on the laptop then switch it off and put battery back
Posted on Jul 28, 2008
There are many bios passwords but most except 1 can be bypassed by a simple work around:
open your laptop exposing the mother board, look for a the CMOS/BIOS battery (the one in the picture). if you have more than one, remove both, then let it sit without the battery for at least 3 hours. (best if you do this overnight because results may vary depending on the model of your mobo)
after that, put the battery back in, put the laptop back together, and you are good to go.
good luck, hope you get this one running.

This works only for some models.
Power unit off. Disconnect AC power. Remove battery. Remove the memory cover screw, memory cover and the memory modules. Peel back the mylar. there should be a set of solder pads labeled JOPEN1. Short the JOPEN1 solder pads for 30 seconds. Replace mylar. Replace memory modules. Replace battery. Power up unit. If all is well, replace memory cover and screw. Hope this helps.
