If your satellite is one of computer models that displays a "Password =" prompt when the computer is turned on, even though no power-on password has been set then you'll need to take your computer to one of the Toshiba Authorized Service Providers. If your computer model is included on the list on this link Toshiba BIOS password issue then you can have the password reset free of charge. You might want to call their support line at 1-800-457-7777 or just go straight to any Toshiba ASP and have them reset it. Just make sure that you update your BIOS as soon as it gets fixed as this may happen again.

"Take it to an authorized service center" is a BS answer - or, at best, it's quoting a press release.  What magic trick do they use at this imaginary service center?  Pull the battery?  Go to recovery console and rewrite a file?  Re-set a jumper?  Come on - get real.  What do they DO at the "service center?"  THAT's the solution, not taking it there.

Assuming that you dont know the old password: What password is it? If it is a HDD password, im sorry my friend, theres no solution except replacing the hard drive. If it is a BIOS password, u need to bring it to Toshiba's nearest service center. You can check support.toshiba.com for the nearest one. Pls check this link http://www.csdsupport.toshiba.com/tais/csd/support/cgi-bin/lov_main.cgi to identify if there will be a charge or none. If it a windows logon password, for xp, u need to log in as an administrator to remove password for ur log in. If there is no other account that can be used to login as administartor, then u need to install again windows, using the TOSHIBA RECOVERY DISK. For windows vista, in the absence of alternate accont to log on, look for reset password option and answer the security question. U can also try to go to safe mode and let see if it will works. If no go, use also the TOSHIBA RECOVERY DISK to reinstall OS.

yes there is, you will need to get someone who can put the laptop apart for you, if you don't know how. they will need to remove the cmos batt and leave it out over night and then put it all back together the next day. that will flash your cmos back to factory settings. other then that you will need to replace the bios chip on the mainboard and that can be very hard to do

SOURCE: how to remove bios password for Toshiba Satellite A200

If you know the current password, use it to enter BIOS SETUP.
Then, type a "blank" ("space-bar") as the "new" password.

If you don't know the current password, you're stuck;
this is a "security" feature to prevent a stolen laptop from being used by the thief.

Reset password on toshiba satellite pro a200


Which operating system are you using?????????
you could set a password in the BIOS, but as far as a operating system password goes, it would be difficult, at best, to reset a password without being logged in first.....
