SOURCE: how to remove bios password for Toshiba Satellite A200

If you know the current password, use it to enter BIOS SETUP.
Then, type a "blank" ("space-bar") as the "new" password.

If you don't know the current password, you're stuck;
this is a "security" feature to prevent a stolen laptop from being used by the thief.

there is no actual password. you need to remove the ram and short out two pins underneath the black plastic they look ike two E's connected like E3. use a flat blade screwe driver. do this while powered off!

This is the ONLY other way, save paying Toshiba and filling in proof of ownership forms.
The BIOS password is removed by the BIOS configuration, you need the BIOS password to get into the BIOS configuration.But if you do not have the BIOS password then you need to construct this dongle device.
TOSHIBA BIOS PASSWORD DONGLE
You can build a dongle that plugs into the printer port.Purchase a 25 pin male D sub connector and solder insulated wires to the various pins as listed below. The pins are numbered on the connector
http://www.tilman.de/sonstiges/toshiba/dongle1.jpg this is a picture of the finished dongle


Wire the pins as follows :-1-5-10, 2-11, 3-17, 4-12, 6-16, 7-13, 8-14, 9-15
Plug the finished dongle in the printer port and power up the laptop. The password will be reset, go into the BIOS configuration to check the BIOS password, you may have to disable the BIOS password.

SOURCE: how to enter PW RESET bios toshiba satellite 2410

Hello,
There are 2 ways you can reset your bios.

1. On the motherboard there is a small watch battery. Remove this battery along with the power cable from the power supply. Hold down the power button to fully discharge the system. Wait 2-3 minutes then reinstall the battery and plug in your system. Your reset is now complete

2. Some motherboards have a 3 pin jumper by the battery. Lets say that the jumper is on pins 2 and 3. Remove the jumper while the machine is OFF and place onto pins 1 and 2. Power on your machine for a minute. (Note: Your system will not POST). Shutdown your machine and put the jumper back to pins 2 and 3. Your reset is now complete


This is a great troubleshooting step for those of you having POST issues or no POSTing at all. Like other troubleshooting steps, this will not always work but usually will depending on the problem.

Please let me know if you have any further questions or concerns.
Thanks.

Problem with Toshiba Satellite L455-S5009 laptop Push the start button and i sounds like i is starting and 4 -5 seconds it shuts down. Is it worth working on?


If you have friends or family that want one then i would give it a go, unscrew the hard drive cover take the hard drive out and give it a good blow, if you have another hard drive to try then give that a go, maybe the bios needs sorting out, you can try taking the battery out no power, press the on/off button for a minute then put it back and see what happens, i take it you have a power lead to plug it in? this is another thing i would check, if all fails after this then its up to you lol, you couls always sell in parts on flea-bay, hope this helps ;))

Video on my toshiba L455=s5009 comes on for a few seconds then blacks out


From your brief diagnoses stated, it sounds like a bad Video Cable.

The Video Cable routes from the motherboard, across one edge of the Fan Assembly, and under the left Hinge assembly,

http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba-Satellite-Pro-L450-L455/big-body/laptop-disassembly-19.jpg

With just the usual opening, and closing of the laptop, the Video Cable's sheath may be damaged. This means the tiny wires inside the sheath may be damaged.
(Stretched/Broken)

http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba-Satellite-Pro-L450-L455/laptop-disassembly-1.htm

http://www.laptoprepairparts.com/html/details.asp?ref=1860&category=cables

Or it may be the screen Inverter that is damaged, or going out,

http://mcccomputers.com/shop/lcd-inverters/3666-new-toshiba-satellite-l455-s5009-l455-s5045-lcd-inverter-pk070006t20-k000087330.html

Or the LCD screen assembly.

Could be the graphics chipset.

Diagnose.

1) Laptop OFF, monitor OFF, connect an external VGA monitor to the laptop's VGA connector, on the back of the laptop.

[ RBG (Monitor) port ]

You can use a CRT monitor (Looks like a small TV), or a flat LCD screen monitor if it has a VGA cable, for the external VGA monitor.

[ Example of a VGA cable, and a VGA port (Connector),

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_connector ]

Turn the external VGA monitor on. If a CRT type allow it to warm up.
Turn the laptop on.

By default the external monitor should show the display, also.
IF not;
1) Press, and hold down on the Fn key, and simultaneously tap on the F5 key. (The F5 key is the Display toggle-over key)

Not showing on the external VGA monitor? Perform the above procedure again.
There are several display options.

External VGA monitor also show the same symptoms?
Bad graphics chipset. Replacing the motherboard is the most cost effective method, and easiest method.

External VGA monitor does Not show these symptoms?
Problem is the Video Cable, or screen Inverter, or LCD screen.

Due to movement of the LCD screen, which means movement of the Video Cable, my money is on a bad Video Cable.

(A Video Cable can be unplugged partially, real easy, on the back of the LCD screen.
It MAY look plugged in tightly, but may not be.

It can also be unplugged real easy when assembling the Display Assembly, to reinstall back on the laptop )

Check the Video Cable's wires with a multimeter. Perform a continuity check of all wires in the cable. (Multimeter set to Ohms)

Have an assistant also gently wiggle the cable, as you are testing. See if there is an intermittent break, due to a stretched/broken wire.

Or just buy a replacement Video Cable, and use it.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

The BIOS and Supervisor passwords cannot be removed or changed unless you know the existing password(s). If you forget your BIOS or Supervisor password, you will have to have the password removed by a Toshiba Authorized Service Provider
