How to reset the CMOS BIOS of a Toshiba Satellite

In this article I explain in brief how to reset the BIOS of a Toshiba Satellite A300 model PSAJ4E. Explained the technique should also be applicable to other models of Toshiba.

Is displayed:
ENTER PASSWORD

 

 

 

 

 

 

Too bad no one ever has set a password …

Well, I think, simply unplug the usual battery, right?

But no!

In fact disassembling the classic battery is not there. We must therefore find a way to reset the CMOS to restore

the bios under the original conditions. Unfortunately, there is not even a simple jumper.

And even trying with the ‘master password’ listed on a website, nothing to do.

The solution is very simple and that is to create a bridge between two points, using a piece of wire.

Here’s how:

– Proctorial a short piece of wire;

– Dismantle the door of the compartment that holds the RAM;

– We dismantle both RAM modules;

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

– Now, look at the next picture and with a piece of wire before ponticelli the two contacts listed in STEP 1 for at least 30 seconds.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

– Then we need to make contact with the POINT 2 (ground) and one of the two contacts in STEP 1 for at least 30 seconds;

– Finally, we contact between the contact and the remaining STEP 2 to STEP 1 for at least 30 seconds.

Close everything and at the next reboot magically be able to enter the BIOS pages to set all the options .. and the PC will be bootable!

Google Nexus 7, we expected the tablet is a reality

What until yesterday at noon was a mere hypothesis, at nightfall came to fruition. Google introduced its first day of I / O number of developments, little by little, we reeled in this blog. The first thing we say is, without doubt, the tablet brand Nexus 7 , which as we all expected, materialized before us almost better than many wet dreams of some that we know.

The new Google Nexus 7 is a 7-inch tablet manufactured by Asus riding a IPS panel with 1280 x 800 pixels, NVIDIA Tegra 3, 1 GB of RAM, front camera, Wi-Fi conectibidad, Bluetooth, NFC integrated weight 340 grams and a battery range of up to 9 hours playing video in HD format. This, obviously, dressed with the new and recently introduced version 4.1 Android Jelly Bean, featuring juicy news we will see in future articles.

This small wonder will go on sale in two models, one 8 GB of internal storage for $ 199 and a 16 GB for $ 249. This election is important because with the exception that the memory is not expandable, and has no microSD expansion slot.

Android 4.1 does not include support for Flash Player

Jelly Bean has appeared, but as they begin updates on users’ devices, disclosed its main features.

All this sounds rather odd, considering that several teams and models are still waiting for the popular Ice Cream Sandwich. It would not be unusual then upgrade to Android 4.1 is skipped this step for thousands of users, taking into account the speed with which technology is updated.

Some consumers are not entirely happy, since it has been confirmed that the newest version of Android will not support Adobe Flash Player , that is, the plugin that lets you view videos and multimedia content through your favorite browser.

The announcement itself is not so surprising. After all other technology giant, Steve Jobs, had declared some years ago that would stop offering support on their devices (iPhone, iPad), while affirming that the future of web language was in HTML5.

This new version will offer online language codes, private and public media that will display even in 3D.

However, HTML5 is not yet a common term for all Internet users, and in fact continues to develop.

The impending divorce from Adobe and Google is inevitable, but despite that Android 4.1 will not have it, Flash Player is still a platform used by millions of users worldwide.

Angry Birds attracts imitators in a booming Chinese market

When Peter Vesterbacka visited China last spring, the head of marketing for Rovio, the Finnish company that is the game Angry Birds, said he had seen fake products related to the game throughout and was happy about that.

“I realized that China was already there for us greatly,” said Vesterbacka in an interview.

“When you see all these imitations, you know there is high demand.”

This optimistic view of the intellectual property issue that has troubled global brands for decades, and caused friction in relations between China and the United States and other countries underpins Rovio novel approach to the consumer market fastest growing in the world.

While many companies are faced with counterfeiters with legions of lawyers, Rovio implements a mixed approach: defending the legal fight against some pirates but look for ways to cooperate with others who have adequate ideas.

“Definitely, this is not a traditional approach,” said Kenny Wong, a partner at law firm Mayer Brown in Hong Kong.

While some skeptics may see a turn behind the enthusiasm of Rovio by Chinese imitations, there are also benefits to accept the reality that China is the main source of counterfeit intellectual property of the world and the courts can not always help.
