I have a Toshiba Satellite laptop A45-S150. I dug this laptop out of a closet after 2 or 3 years of not using it. The battery is missing however does power on and shows very briefly the Toshiba screen then goes straight to a black screen with Password= in the upper left corner. I have read that if I open up the computer and disconnect the Bios battery for few minutes this would reset the password. I did this twice and the second try I left it disconnected for 5 hours. Still no luck. I have also left the laptop plugged in over night and still no luck. I understand there might be two pins I could use a paperclip on the reset the password but I can not locate these on this machine. I have done what I could to search on the internet but seem to only find how to do it but not the location on this computer of the pins.
I am looking for any advise anyone could give me. I am trying to set this computer up for my kids but seem to be locked out.
Thanks in advance
