Have you tried NO password? also , an old trick on a desktop PC was to remove the small button battery from the motherboard and then put it back in, this would reset the BIOS and password.

How do I get into my bios when F2 won't work


Try tapping the Delete key instead.

It say here you use F2, but you have to do a complete shutdown rather than a restart. You have to keep tapping as soon as you see a logo or life!

    How do I remove my toshiba bios password? When I turn on my computer it instantly asks me for my password (Bios). I am unable to even get into my windows


    The way around a lost/forgotten BIOS password is to reset the password to the default BIOS password, which is: no password at all. A BIOS will accept a password, but will not set one by default.
    The way to reset your BIOS password, since it is not stored in flash memory, but is stored in battery-backed ROM, is to (utilizing proper static control techniques) remove the CMOS motherboard battery (a button cell), leave it out of the computer for a few minutes, then re-install the battery, and reboot the system. This will remove the BIOS password (and reset all BIOS parameters to their default, including the BIOS password), and send you into MSWindows, where you'll be prompted for Windows passwords to each of the password-protected accounts on the computer.
    In brief, your anti-static technique of choice is an anti-static strap clipped (via simple alligator clip) to the frame (ground) of the system. In a tower computer, ground would be the frame, whereas in your Toshiba laptop, a number of grounds are available, such as a screw securing an output port, or other means of grounding as specified in your laptop's service manual.

    Here's a link to a how-to for replacement of the CMOS battery in a Toshiba L305-S5895 laptop.

    Don't know BIOS password


    Here's how to reset password

    Resetting a Toshiba BIOS Password KeyDisk will reset the BIOS password on Toshiba laptops.
    Older Toshiba laptops can be convinced to boot without their power-on BIOS password by attaching a dongle to the parallel port which crosses a number of the pins. The pin out is:
    Pins 1-5-10 2-11 3-17 4-12 6-16 7-13 8-14 9-15 Some Toshiba's can be convinced to bypass the startup BIOS password if you hold down the <LEFT-SHIFT> key while booting the system.

    How to remove bios password in toshiba satellite A305-s6905 laptop? i tried removing the battery,but it didnt work... it asked me for a JO pin,which i was unable to find.


    Almost all motherboards contain a jumper that can clear all CMOS settings along with the BIOS password. The location of this jumper varies depending upon the motherboard brand. You should read your motherboard manual to check its location. If you don’t have the manual then look for the jumpers near the CMOS battery. Most of the manufacturer label the jumper as CLR, CLEAR, CLEAR CMOS, etc.
    When you find the jumper, look carefully. There will be 3 pins and the jumper will be joining the center pin to either left or right pin. What you need to do, is remove the jumper and join the center pin to the opposite pin. e.g. if the jumper joins center pin to left pin, then remove it and join center pin to right pin. Now wait for a few seconds and then again remove the jumper and join the center pin to left pin.
    Make sure to turn the PC off before opening the cabinet and resetting the jumper.
    B. By Using Software:
    I have found that BIOS/CMOS Password Recovery Tool is the most effective.:
    BIOS/CMOS Password Recovery Tool is a program that works instantly to remove any lost or forgotten BIOS/CMOS password. Simply boot your PC to DOS and execute the program, and get access to forgotten BIOS/CMOS passwords in just seconds

    How do you reset a Toshiba Satellite L305D Power on Password?


    To reset the password on this model, you need to:
    • Power off the computer, flip it over, and open the ram door
    • Find a small jumper to the left of memory module 0 (the one closest to the board).
    • Use a screwdriver to jump this pad while you turn the computer on
    • Continue jumping the pad until after the splash screen dissappears
    • If successfull the password prompt will go away. If not, try try again.
    • When successful, make haste to update your bios: http://cdgenp01.csd.toshiba.com/cont...s/slb8v140.exe Toshiba's have a nasty habit of setting bios passwords on their own. I'm assuming thats why you're here.

    Forgotten password


    If you lost your windows password, try a program called "ophcrack-win32-installer-3.0.1.exe" or "ophcrack-xp-livecd-2.0.1.iso". These will crack and show any windows based usename and password on your computer.  If the problem is the bios password, for starting your laptop, then you will have to reset the bios (check manual) or remove the battery pack and on board Li battery to reset Bios. I would check the manual first. On old Toshiba laptops you could jump the parrallel pins to reset the bios, not sure on the Gateway. I will check further.
