  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....

You would need to remove your keyboard where the bio's flat battery is located. Take that battery out for 10sec, then put it back in. That will reset your bio settings and password

How do I fing toshiba A60 equium password


Hi,
pull the battery out and leave it out for a few minutes and then put it back in - if you can reach the bios then reset optimum settings - if there is a windows password then reformatting will get rid of that one.

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.
