Hi My problem with my toshiba A215 S4697, I flash the bios lost week end when i reboot it ask for a bios password but i never use one. thank for your help


If you contact www.toshiba.com and assuming that is where you downloaded the firmware from, the tech guys will answer your question. If you got the bios firmware upgrade from elswhere, talk to the supplier for a password.

Hi

Thank you for your query

There is 2 ways of clearing this problem, both unfortunatley require that the motherboard be accessed, and should only be done by a qualified engineer

1) Once you have opened up everything and the motherboard can be seen, something called a 2 pin reset will need to be done, this will involve moving a jumper from wetting to another for a few seconds and then moving them back

2) Removing the CMOS battery for approx 10 minutes and then putting it back, pelase note that gain the CMOS battery can be found on the motherboard

I personally advise that you do not do this work yourself and book the laptop into a reputable PC shop

Toshiba a215-s4697 locate bios battery, becuase i can not remember my bios password so i cant do anything with my laptop


Hello,
I am not sure that the removal of the CMOS battery would erase the passord on boot. Better take it to a Toshiba Certified Service Center.
Hope it helps.

Toshiba satilite a215 s7422 bios password how to cleare


You'll need a special tool that only Toshiba has. I believe you can get yours cleared for FREE if you tell them that all of a sudden out of nowhere you have a bios password. Stick to that story because they've already admitted to the problem with many of their laptops. You'll have to find an authorized Toshiba repair center to take care of it for you. Otherwise I believe they charge around $100 to clear it.

Don't bother to try the cmos battery trick, it doesn't work on your model. The password is stored on an onboard chip.
