    I just got the ST5112 Tablet and i've got one problem - bios password.

    On Dogbert's Blog i've read some things but im a little bit lost to be honest.
    I should look for bios chip on motherboard cause there might be placed hash for master code , right ? But i can't recognise the proper chip.

    I'm out of ideas. Need your help

    Way back in the first few pages I had the same issue and mine was rectified with the procedures listed. You need a second computer to run the software so that you can enter the codes during the 5112 boot sequence. Following their procedure it worked like a charm.

    I'm not sure if the ST5112 has a buffer battery for this. Even if yes, it could have died in the meantime.

    Easy fix, at least temporarily: Use hibernation instead of sleep. This way all the data gets saved on the HDD where power loss doesn't do anything. Normal sleep keeps the data in the main memory and there it's gone quite fast once the refresh cycles stop.

    It does have a small battery but I'd bet most all of them are dead which means they won't even hold the miniscule charge in the RAM for long enough to swap mains.

    on page 39 of the users manual i found that the "bridge battery" is disabled if wake on lan in enabled. so i rebooted (first time this year ?) entered bios and sure enough wol was enabled. so i disabled it rebooted again. waited for boot sequence to calm down and then i pulled the battery. replaced battery press the power button. dead as a door nail. sometimes i swear god just likes to screw with my head.

    If you look back in the first few pages you will find a video on opening the case, that bridge battery is a simple rechargeable pack and I bet you can find something similar to put in there. I haven't opened mine in a while so I can't exactly say what it was, but I think it might be a couple of small flat circular cells on a wire, similar to the cells used in some cordless phones.
