The Satellite A210-19T is a popular model of Toshiba laptops that comes with the AMD Athlon dual-core processor, 2 GB of memory and a 120 GB hard drive. This notebook runs the Windows Vista operating system. The basic input/output system (BIOS) is a configuration program that allows you to modify system and hardware settings on your laptop. A password is an optional BIOS protection from unauthorised access. Remove the BIOS password to simplify the system configuration on your laptop. Use the Toshiba hardware utility "HWSetup" to access the BIOS from Windows Vista.
