    Hello,
    i was wondering if someone could tell me why when reseting the bios password via jumpers on motherboard is it stated that 1 of the 2 memory sticks should be left in the FIRST slot (the one furthest from motherboard)?

    I ask because the top/FIRST memory slot on the motherboard of my laptop (please see title) is broken.

    Can I perform try to reset by leaving a memory stick in the second slot (closest to the motherboard)?

    Many many thanks :)

    If you know the password for the BIOS or UEFI or don't have one set, you can change or remove a password through the UEFI/BIOS settings, Hardware Setup Utility, or TOSHIBA Security Assist Utility.
