BIOS PASSWORD??? HELP!!!
Try typing "Biostar" in as the password. If that doesn't work, we have another option.
The first step would be to try removing the CMOS battery (the coin shaped battery inside the computer that keeps the clock working). Disconnect the laptop from any power source (AC adapter), and remove the main laptop battery. Third, you will have to remove the bottom plate of the Toughbook. Search YouTube for a disassembly video for your model of tough book. Once you've removed the bottom plate, you should be able to see the internal components. Connected to the system board by two wires will be the CMOS battery. After disconnecting the CMOS battery (carefully!), hold down the power button on the laptop for about ten seconds, then let the computer sit for a few minutes to ensure that it is completely devoid of power. You will then need to reinstall the laptop battery (the main, brick-shaped one — not the CMOS) and boot up the laptop. If all goes according to plan, you should be able to access the BIOS and turn off or remove the bios password. Now you can reassemble your Toughbook. Power off, remove the battery, reconnect the CMOS battery, and reattach the rear plate, and you're good to go!
