    Hello, recently I adquired a Satellite A300-276 with insydeh2o BIOS.

    The BIOS setup requires me password to access it. I've tried some tricks, like shorthing b500 (it clears cmos, but it doesnt remove the password). Also updated the bios version to the last release on csd (2.2). I still can boot, I'm just not able to setup it.

    After all this, I started to have a new problem (guess it was because ive cleared cmos but i didnt configured(default setup). The power light, never turns off, only if remove battery/ac

    Any idea to my new problem? I can live with the other one
    hope you guys can help me
    cheers

    Hello

    Regarding the BIOS I would recommend reading this article:

    And what LEDs are still on after you turned off the notebook? The LED for AC adapter and battery is always on if AC/DC adapter is connected but if you disconnect it all LEDs should be off even battery is installed.
