Question about Toshiba Tecra 8200 Notebook
Posted by Anonymous on
On Toshiba laptops you hit the ESC key as soon as you turn it on & then you
are given the option to hit the F1 key to enter bios.
As to the cmos battery, they couldn't have hidden it better if it was the Queen's diamond!
It is near the bottom of the laptop on the right side, almost directly beneath the pause/break key.
Problem is, you have to disassemble the entire laptop to get at it!

Best of luck

On the Toshiba Satellite L25 S1217 Laptop, the battery is indeed to the left of the wifi card. I was having a problem with a bios password and had spent a considerable amount of time looking. However Instead of taking the whole laptop apart, I removed the wireless card and used a precision flathead to maneuver the connector out of it's socket. after a few seconds I booted the laptop, with the battery still disconnected , and no password prompt! using the same screw driver, I was able to get the connector back into it's socket, and put the wireless card back in. it runs fine now. the trick is to only pull the connector out only enough so that it's not making the connection, if you pull it too far you will have a tougher time guiding it back into the socket. I hope this helps a lot of people with the same problem.
