Toshiba a215 bios password then prompted for hdd password space bar enter didnt work


BIOS passwords can be reset or removed in two ways:

1. using software 2. using hardware.

I would first try resetting or removing using software, here are two software apps to reset or retrieve BIOS passwords.

!BIOS - is a PC BIOS toolkit offering password removal/decrypt and BIOS settings modification/backup/restore.
You can download it here:

CmosPwd - Cmos password recovery tools
http://majorgeeks.com/CmosPwd_d239.html

You will need to create a bootable Dos, or Linux or NT cd in order to run them.

Good Luck!

I have a advent 7113 laptop and i have done everthing to get passed the bios password with no luck been at it for a week now and i think i am going to hit my son over the head with his laptop can any one...


The BIOS Password is set from the BIOS configuration. Ask your son for the password. Once you have this password, you can enter the BIOS configuration and remove/disable this password.
Depending how old you computer is, removing the BIOS battery and main battery for 15+ mins may remove this password and restore the BIOS to the factory default (insert both batteries again) and configure the BIOS Date and Time etc.
BUT if the the password is stored on an EEPROM chip then removing will not fix this problem. There are no backdoor passwords available.

I lost my BIOS password


You will have to contact Gateway (or the manufacturer of the laptop) and ask them what you need to do to remove the bios password. Without an exact model number no one here can provide you with a 3rd party solution.

Most laptops made in the last few years require you to send the laptop back to the manufacturer and provide proof you are the origional owner of the laptop to remove a BIOS password as many BIOS passwords set up to prevent data theft.

Power On password bypass


Different names, but it is the same thing. I'm not sure if it is possible to flash the bios without that password. I'll look into it. Have you tried contacting Compaq? The guys at the US online support helped me with a discontinued 8 year old model... and I live in Europe
