Password BIOS Satellite A10 131

I bought an old box of voor laptop 15 but he happened to have an unknown bios password, so it does not start.

For almost every Toshiba I can find a solution on the internet, but not for this old A10-131.
Tips and tricks like masterpasswords, dongle on the parallel port (which mij A10 is not!), remove the cmos battery and. etc won't work. Is there anyone who really know the solution for this problem?

There must be a jumper on the motherboard which solve the problem I think. But what date is?
Anyone know the right name (B500 or almost) this rider?

Thank you very much for your answers.


From my own experience that the Toshiba service can remove the BIOS password.
A rider who could do the job does not for me.

  • Satellite A10-131: really slow start

    It takes about 15 minutes (!) for my Toshiba Satellite A10-131 to start. It's really frustrating when you are in a train or some other place where you need your laptop for a short period. I've changed the original with fastest 256DDR ram 1024 GB, I installed all the drivers on the right and most recently, I tried several formats, etc., but doesn't change anything. Does anyone have any ideas? The only thing that I did not try to change have the BIOS setting, mainly because I have no idea how it works :)

    Thanks in advance!


    It s very strange because I've never seen a laptop that starts at 15 min.
    It would be very interesting to know if the cleaning Windows OS need also 15 min.
    If yes then I guess there is something wrong with the hardware (maybe the motherboard)
    Unfortunately, I put t know all the BIOS options that could reduce initialization time.

  • How to remove password BIOS (Satellite A30) - Please help

    Hello. In the company I work, there is a Toshiba Satellite A30 having a BIOS password.

    I was asked to remove the password and, inside the BIOS, I was able to clear the password (at least that is what I thought at first):

    BIOS asked the current password and I typed, then requested a new password and I just pressed the ENTER key, and when I was asked to retype the new password I pressed ENTER again.

    After that, I saw that BIOS showed "PASSWORD (clear)" and I saved the changes and exit.

    To my surprise, I was asked a password even once, I just pressed the ENTER key and it showed an "INCORRECT PASSWORD" message and the same message when I type the old password!

    I don't know if there was a password of Toshiba when the computer was purchased, but the manual that I downloaded here does not mention that.

    Is there a way to fix this? I do not understand what can happen!

    VERY GOOD THANKS in ADVANCE and thanks again for reading.

    If the correct password is not for you there is no way to remove them. It can be removed only by the authorized service partner. Please contact them and they will do it for you. I guess it can't be expensive.

  • How can I boot from CD on the Satellite A10 - 131

    How can I set BOOT priority in the BIOS to CD-Rom?

    HI Gleb,

    The normal way to select the boot device is to press the F12 key during the initial ignition process. This will cause the display of the menu 'Boot Device Selection'.

    Alternatively, you can try the short cut from Toshiba which is to press the 'C' in the first power.

  • Satellite A10-131 CPU upgrade

    I want to change the CPU in my machine. I wonder if she would support PIV - M 2, 6 GHz with 512 KB L2 or PIV Centrino 2 GHz with 2 MB of L2 cache. Can someone help me? I know that I can swap the CPU in this machine, because I did it earlier. I just want to know if it supports these processors I mentioned.

    Thank you


    As much as I know this device was delivered with an Intel Celeron 2.5 GHz 400 MHz FSB Processor
    Usually it s not advisable to change the processor on the laptop because of an overheating issues and pre-installed software (ie. utility chipset). For most the CPU is fixed on the motherboard and you cannot remove the cpu.
    He should also know that if you change the CPU or you open Notepad, you will lose the warranty.
    In this case, you can do any replacement at your own risk!

  • Satellite A10, how will we change access BIOS Menu?

    I have a big problem with the Toshiba Satellite A10.
    I want to re install Windows XP by starting in the CD Rom, but by default, the startup is for HD.

    Turn on my laptop, pressins press ESC, then F1, we have the menu of the BIOS, BUT we can only change the time and the password.
    I don't know how for the Windows BOOT PRIORITY to change the setting.

    Please help me!
    I would change the Boot Configuration, but impossible in the menu of the BIOS even by perform F12 key when from the laptop.

    Hi nclaude,

    Normally, you enter by turning on the laptop by pressing the ESC key, then F1 to bios.

    If you can only change the time, it could be that you without administrative rights in the bios.

    Perhaps you or someone else has entered a supervisor password to save the bios of unauthorized changes!

    But you can also boot CD-ROM by pressing c (for the cd Rom) in the startup process.

    hope this helps you


  • How to remove/reset password BIOS on my Satellite A350D?

    Hi all,

    Unfortunately (but "strangely" especially!) my Toshiba Satellite a350d - 20 k PSALME-01D00RIT does not not recognize the BIOS password. It's the same password never. I used it for 9 months each time in order to allow the start of the laptop.

    However, it is a couple of days since she decided that now that password is incorrect. After having tried and tried, I finally decided to put the HDD on another computer as external drive in order to continue with my work... but here it is the panic: none of the computers I've tried is actually able to read the data on the disk!

    After spending a certain time frozen in panic, I returned to myself and start to ask around to figure out the problem. Someone said that the wrong BIOS password has something to do with the fact that I can not read my disk outside this laptop: you know, it's a kind of average security.

    However, the only thing he cares about me is that at the same time, I can't use my laptop and I can't use my data outside of my laptop.

    So, my questions are:
    (1) this model of laptop has this kind of password BIOS-protection also affecting my drive?
    (2) the BIOS password reset will solve the problem?
    (3) how to reset the BIOS password anyway?
    (4) how to recover my data on this hard drive of reading?

    Waiting for any comment.
    Thank you very much!
    Kind regards.

    Hey guys

    BIOS password is very important security feature and we can not debate on this subject on a public forum, especially the Forum of Toshiba. Following your logic all stolen but with notebook BIOS password can be unlocked.
