Toshiba says I need to "use a jump wire to make a short circuit on M/B B500 location". Anybody know where B500 is on this MB? So far havent' found it under the RAM or under the kybd.

You need to download a service manual for this laptop, it should tell you in there where this location is. I have worked on a similar model of notebook and found it in the memory compartment, close to where the battery is. Did you contact Toshiba, or u just communicated to them via forum?

I have the service manual for this model. It tells me which jumper by number, but not where it's located.

Look for a place on the mobo label clr, as it may not be labeled as a number b500

thats great, THat is where I thought I found it, often is covered with a piece of clear plastic so you need to use two needles to pierce the clear plastic and jumper the two points holding it for five seconds.
