Question about PC Laptops
I have a toshiba m65-s9092 satellite laptop that i haven't used for about a year now. When i booted it up it asked for the bios password which i thought i knew for i use the same password for all my devices but instead i got an incorrect password error. I have tried google to find a solution to resetting the bios password by way of manufactor backdoor passwords, certain key combinations during boot-up, removing the cmos battery or shorting out two jumping pins (both of which i havent tried for fear of damage) but nothing has worked. This bios password takes effect before any device boot up can be applied so software dosent seem to be the answer either. Please please help! Thank you.
Remove the battery, and the memory cover (1 screw), and the memory module(s). Under the bottom memory module, there is a white sticker (the bigger sticker)... remove that, and there is a small copper lead labeled J2 that looks like two E's mated with each other, you need to short the E's to each other for about 30 seconds with something metal. Put at least one memory module back in, and the battery, and try booting. If it still has a password, try again for a little longer, or press a little harder with the metal object to ensure you are making a connection.

De-soldered one of the battery leads for a minute, then re-attached, re-assembled, and it worked. Yes !

The easiest way to proceed is by accessing to the Cmos battery, and removing it for one minute, this will reset the bios to factory settings.
See here for some guidance in disassembling the laptop:
