Working on a L505 with a BIOS password. The battery is soldered onto the motherboard but I have shorted the battery (30+ sec) and CMOS recognizes battery failure but still remembers the password. does anyone know how to clear the password by shorting the BIOS chip / where is the bios chip. this is a Toshiba Satellite L505D-LS5005. thanks!

Hi, I am not going to be much help.

Look here

http://www.laptop-repair.info/toshiba_bios_password.htm...

See if any of that applies to you and perform the steps,

Upon doing research it has been suggested that the usual removal/shorting of battery and jumpers does not work. This password is stored in the chip and the only way it can be recovered is by taking it to an authorised toshiba dealer in which they will replace the chip.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

2.Pull cmos cell from motherboard, wait for 15 minutes then put it back.
3. The computer will not ask password.

Lol, as stated the cell is soldered and cannot be removed. I think you should call a toshiba dealer, see what they have to say.
