Portege R100 (Toshiba). I have not used this laptop in over a year and can not rem the bios password I'd set. Tried all I could think of. Is there any way to reset the password on this?


Hi,yes there is but you'll have to open the system up,if you have no prior I.T expertise I'd suggest you take to a qualified Technician,but if you do here is how:First remove the Battery,then uncouple the system taking of where each of the screws go to then locate the CMOS battery(small battery Lithium Ion mostly in the shape of a cent or smaller),it may be underneath the keyboard or just behind once the external cover is open.unplug it from the system for about an hour or two reconnect it,couple the system and boot,go to Bios,reset Date and Time and save,then exit.

A direct download from the manufactures website should update the drivers even after reinstalling the operating system so I would update the bios with the latest firmware and than try booting using the usb Hope this helpsRobb

Techies, please help! I've been having problems with my Toshiba R15-S822... I get the BSOD when I try to load Windows, but I can start in Safe Mode just fine. I've tried multiple things - system restore, deleting newly installed programs, etc. but nothing worked. I backed up my files and decided to use the Recovery DVD (yes, it is the right DVD), but I get an error message that says "Wrong machine." Changed the boot priority in BIOS to make sure it boots from the CD-rom first, but I still get the same "wrong machine" message. I called Toshiba and they said it's likely a "low level BIOS" problem of some sort and that I would have to take it to a service center to fix it. It's such an old laptop but I like having it as a backup and using the tablet function on occasion...I don't really want to shell out any money to get it fixed. Are there any techies out there who have suggestions on how I can fix this? Thanks!


Toshiba support could be quite correct and service center solution the only one.You could try this from the command line window in safe mode.Open a command window and type CHKDSK /r (there is a space between K&r). It will tell you the drive is locked and would you like it to happen on reboot. Enter y then exit and reboot.It's got me out of trouble a few times.

Recovery Problems I need to perform a a recovery on this tablet laptop but the problem is the firewire cd/dvd drive doesn't work. I have two of thes Acer external firewire drives and neither works so it is probably the firewire port on the unit but the wires on these drives are notoriously flimsy. I tried doing a restore from the hidden partition drive that is on every Acer but the Alt F10 function does nothing. I even purchased a usb cd/dvd drive to try to boot the recovery CD from it but it won't recognize the drive. I was thinking I might try making a bootable usb thumbdrive from the recovery CD and then using the bios to boot from it. Running out of ideas though. The machine is still working pretty well it has ton's of corrupted installs on it and needs to be flushed. Can't find the handle though. :-)


The Tablets can be quite difficult to perform a reimage or recovery on as most bios versions on them do not recognise a USB device as bootable. My recommendation would be to obtain a Bootable Floppy disk that contains an imaging program. (GHOST. Powerquest etc). From here you may have 2 options available to you.1. Attempt to recover using the hidden partition on your hard drive.2. Recover from an image located via the network. You will need to ensure that a driver for your network card is also bundled into this install. Once this boothdisk has been created you will need to create a "shared folder" on another PC which contains the image you require. Once the bootdisk has loaded point yourself to the shared folder.Lastly - You may be able to find an updated bios version that allows boot from USB device.
