If you know the password, then when you go to change it instead of entering a new password just press enter on the keyboard. If you don't know the password try, admin or administration or even the word password.

Ah that difficult with a laptop.

use this tool


!BIOS - is a PC BIOS toolkit offering password removal/decrypt and BIOS settings modification/backup/restore.

or flash the bios from the laptop manufactor sites bios update.
or failing that - open the laptop up. take out the on board battery or search on line for where the jumpers are situated on the motherboard and reset them.

No easy solution im afraid.

SOURCE: toshiba satilite a215 s7422 bios password how to cleare

You'll need a special tool that only Toshiba has. I believe you can get yours cleared for FREE if you tell them that all of a sudden out of nowhere you have a bios password. Stick to that story because they've already admitted to the problem with many of their laptops. You'll have to find an authorized Toshiba repair center to take care of it for you. Otherwise I believe they charge around $100 to clear it.

Don't bother to try the cmos battery trick, it doesn't work on your model. The password is stored on an onboard chip.

SOURCE: forget bios user password, so

To reset the BIOS password read the information from this link.

In case of your laptop the easiest method would be using software from Hiren's Boot CD.

You should not clear the BIOS, because the laptop will not work if it doesn't have a BIOS. If you need to reset the BIOS password, then you can go to http://www.ebay.com and search BIOS password resetter.

Gateway Laptop - HDD Password locks me out! Help


if the hard drive has a locked password on it, you cannot remove it unless you have the password. you might try using some SMART disk utilities, but in my experience, it has no worked. Some hard drives have a list of reset passwords, but I have never had success in getting these to work.

try downloading Hiren's boot cd. (gogle search it) it has many utilities for hard drives on it. iyt may have something to help.

alternatively, buy a broken identical model on ebay and swap the PC board. make sure to have the same hardware revision level and model.

There is a battery on the motherboard. Removing it for about 1/2 hour should clear the bios. There are several software methods also. Google 'bios password removal' to find one.
