I know on other toshiba's they have to connect it to a usb or lpt1 port with a special dogel that will remove it... some laptopps and desktops use a EEROM that even if you take out the cmos battory it doesnt allays reset it.. so you might have to ship it to mfg..
ps just to make sure you took out the cmos/bois battory not the laptop battory
I think I saw the video on youtube of the guy using the dongle but know clue where to get it nor any one I know has an EEPROM programer... sorry

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 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.

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???
