  Inorder to reset the password, you must open the case,  and on the Motherboard there is a round battery. Its the size of a nickel.  In some cases you can just remove the battery and wait a few seconds and then replace it.
  Another alternative is to short some pins that will clear the bios password.  In close proximity to that battery you should find a set of pins. Normally there are 3 pins together and there will be a jumper on one end of the 3 pins. What you have to do is to remove the jumper and move it to the other end of the pins. In other words if the pins are labeled 1-2-3 and right now there is jumper on 2 and 3., Then you will remove the jumper from there and place it on pins 1 and 2.    Once doing so will reset the password on the bios.  Wait a minute and then replace the jumper on 2 and 3. And then you should have your problem resolved....

Toshiba equium m40x


this may caused by hard disk problem. first remove (disconnect) hard disk. then try to enter bios setup. if the problem persist, find a jumper clip named 'bios reset' in mother board near front panel connectors. the default jumper position is 1and 2. now change the clip into 2and3 - power on - wait 5 seconds - power off - reset jumper to 1and2- thats all connect hard disk- check again the bios setting.

Forgot Windows Password - How to Reset the Password without Admin Rights?


<span style="font-weight: bold;">Problem:</span> "<a href="http://www.windowsloginrecovery.com/forgot-windows-password.html">Forgot Windows password</a>? How I can reset it without admin rights? On my Windows 7 machine, I created 2 accounts. One is an account with admin rights, and the other one is a limited account (standard user account). Now Windows is not recognizing my password for the administrator account. Can I reset the administrator password via the standard user account? Or is there any other way to reset the forgotten administrator account password? Please note I never created a password reset disk for the administrator account."<br /><br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">Solution:</span> As for the above question, the answer is no as users cannot reset another account password via a standard user account. In my opinion, the most effective and simple approach case is to use a powerful Windows password recovery tool like Windows Login Recovery. With this password recovery tool at hand, you easily reset administrator, standard user and guest passwords by yourself if you forgot Windows password. Besides, it is very safe; no data will be lost after <a href="http://www.windowsloginrecovery.com/reset-windows-password.html">Windows password reset</a>.<br /><br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">How to reset forgotten Windows password?</span><br /><br />If you decide to use Windows Login Recovery when you forgot Windows password, you need to find an accessible computer, download and install the program in it. Once it is set up, run it and burn a password reset disk with a blank CD/DVD. Then you follow the instructions below to reset forgotten Windows password with the burned CD/DVD.<br /><br />Step 1. Insert the burned CD/DVD in your locked computer.<br /><br />Step 2. Press F2, Delete or F10 to enter BIOS Setup when the computer is booting.<br /><br />Step 3. Set CD-ROM as the first boot device in BIOS.<br /><br />Note: You could click here to view how to set the first boot device in BIOS. The computer will restart automatically after saving your BIOS settings. And you'll be able to reset forgotten Windows password under DOS.<br /><br />Step 4. Enter the NO. of your Windows installation path to display all its account user names.<br /><br />Step 5. Enter the NO. of a specified User Name to remove its account password, then enter y to confirm and continue your operation.<br /><br />Step 6. Enter n to finish your operation when the selected windows account password is removed.<br /><br />Note: If you want to remove another Windows account password, please enter y. And you'll repeat the previous steps to reset another account password.<br /><br />Step 7. Remove the burned CD/DVD and press any key to restart your computer when you enter n to finish your operation.<br /><br />Now the operation is finished. Windows will not ask you to enter a password when you log on to your computer. Don't you think it is easy? Never feel frustrated when you forgot Windows password with this method.<br /><br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">Why cannot use standard user account?</span><br /><br />Are you confused that why you cannot reset the administrator password by using the standard user account? Well, you need to learn what a standard user account is.<br /><br />According to Microsoft, a standard user account is to let a person use most of the capabilities of the computer, but permission from an administrator is required if you want to make changes that affect other users or the security of the computer.<br /><br />When you use a standard account, you can use most programs that are installed on the computer, but you can't install or uninstall software and hardware, delete files that are required for the computer to work, or change settings on the computer that affect other users. If you're using a standard account, some programs might require you to provide an administrator password before you can perform certain tasks. So if you forgot Windows password, you could not reset the password by using a standard user account.

How to remove toshiba a200 model the password after power on?


Press the appropriate key to enter BIOS setup.
Enter the current password, to allow you to access BIOS setup.
Then, set a new password.

The password exists to prevent a thief in possession of your laptop from using the stolen computer.

Find your original bill-of-sale, and telephone Toshiba, and they will help the registered owner in resetting the password.

Toshiba laptop 2 years old, the screen is black. The laptop turns on but get no screen.


You can try connecting an external monitor and if you can get to the CMOS/BIOS you can verify that the active screen is your laptop screen. If everything is OK on the BIOS, then probably your laptop screen is broken. To enter the Bios use F2 or F10 (depending on model) when booting.
