Hi,

due to fixyas terms and conditions, this information can not and should not be posted on the forums.
this is due to obvious legalities, of who the laptop actually belongs to ?
The person in charge or purchaser of the item, should have any relevant information to unlock any security passwords. Newer style laptops actually have security chips on board, which can only be unlocked or passwords provided by the legitimate owner of the item, or by contacting the manufacturer for an unlock password. i,d suggest that you contact your client for this information.

Thankyou for using fixya.

If it's a problem with your BIOS password, your best bet is going to be to get ahold of Toshiba and ask them what they suggest for your laptop model. BIOS passwords are notoriously hard to reset, they're built that way. Hope this helps!

Net bios password work around


Hello,
There will be a back door password , password can reset for some model in dell platform.A BIOS password is a protection measure that can be used to stop someone powering up a computer system or making changes in some of the computers most sensitive areas. Many big name computer manufacturers such as Dell and HP lock the customers out of this area because they don't want the customer changing anything and potentially damaging the machine (which the manufacturer may have to warranty). However, when someone like a computer technician or hardware enthusiast needs to make some hardware changes to the computer, they will need to access the BIOS. Here are some methods to bypass or remove a BIOS password.

Can't remember my password on hp 6000 computer how


Are you talking about the BIOS password, or the windows password?
A hard reset will probably reset your BIOS password (see this thread),

To reset your windows password, you need your XP CD-ROM and follow this instruction.

Instalation problem


If the Laptop canme with installed version of Vista, then the manufacturer or Dealer has locked the OS. You will have to contact tem and get it changed to XP using your CD only, otherwise this problem will remain. Another option is to start in command mode so that you have complete accessalthough most probably the BIOS may be password protected, in which case u will have to delete it by filling in blanks(spacebar) and do thse changes. Format the entire HDD and load XP as a fresh installation......hope this helps......sodeep

Giga-byte motherboard GA-6VTXD


Hi, next to the cmos battery is a set of either two or three jumper pins, if it is a 2 pin then just short out these pins for about 10 seconds, this will reset all standard bios settings. If it has a 3 pin configuration then move the jumper from the current seting onto the next one and leave it for about 10 seconds as well, then replace it in the original position. If a Password has been set in the bios by a previous owner then you have 2 options, 1/ take the board to a repair technician to have it removed or loook on ebay, computers & it, software, under "other software you will find a downloadable CD that you can use to do this job yourself. There are also a lot of other useful tools on some of these CD's and they are fairly cheap. Goodluck mistyman
