Dear friends,
its just a technique and if u wish u can do it.

This is what you need:
1. Your notebook
2. An empty formatted diskette (720 kb or 1,44 mb)
3. A second computer (e.g. a DOS desktop PC)
4. A hex-editor (e.g. Norton DiskEdit or HexWorks)
This is what you have to do:
1. Start the desktop PC and start the hex-editor
2. Put the disk in drive A:
3. Change the first five bytes of sector 2 (boot sector is sector 1) to: 4B 45 59 00 00
4. Save it! Now you have a KEYDISK
5. Remove the disk from drive A:
6. Put the disk in the notebook drive
7. Start the notebook in Boot Mode (push the reset button)
8. Press Enter when asked for Password:
9. You will be asked to Set Password again. Press Y and Enter.
10. You now see the BIOS configuration where you can set a new password.

Enjoy !!!

SOURCE: 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.

How do I reset the bios password on a Toshiba Satellite s875-s7356

There's probably a set of jumper pins, labeled "B500" or something specific to your machine somewhere on the motherboard. Short those pins while turning on the power. Wait until it finishes booting, then turn it off again. Disconnect the pins, and it should start without the password.

I forget my bios password for Toshiba any master password to reset the bios password....? where can i find the jumper on the mother board..?

If you can access to Windows Vista, it's as easy as to reflash the bios for your laptop-it will reset the bios password automatically. You can download the bios to reflash it from:

A) Turn the laptop off if it's on.
B) Disconnect the AC adapter, and remove the Battery
C) Turn the laptop over, remove the Memory Module Compartment Cover. (1 screw)
D) Remove all ram memory modules. Lay them on a non-static surface.
E) View this photo,

F) With the computer situated as in the photo above, grab the Mylar film by the upper left corner.
Peel it back to the Right. DO NOT peel it off!
Just peel it back far enough to expose the B500 solder pads.

G) Attach a 4 inch piece of tape to the underside of the Mylar film, as shown in the above photo.
(Do not remove the Mylar film because it might be difficult to reattach properly later.
It has to be in THAT particular position when you are done)

H) Inset one of the memory modules into the inside ram memory slot. This is Ram Memory slot 1.
The ram memory slot that is closest to the BOTTOM. 
(There are slots for two ram memory modules. One at the bottom, one at the top. The top is closest to the Memory Compartment Door)

I) Secure the tape to the laptop body, to keep the Mylar film from touching the solder pads. (B500)

J) Reconnect the AC adapter. Plug the adapter into power.
Short across the tow solder pads, (B500) with a pair of needle-nose pliers, or a flat bladed screwdriver.

K) While continuing to short the solder pads, turn the laptop on, and continue shorting the solder pads until the Toshiba logo disappears.
If the BIOS password has been successfully removed, the laptop will not present a BIOS password prompt before Windows starts.

L) Shut down Windows normally making sure the laptop has completely turned off.

M) Disconnect the AC adapter

N) Remove the ram memory module, and remove the tape. Reposition the Mylar film back into place.

O) Reinstall all ram memory modules, reinstall the Memory Compartment Cover.
Reinsert the Battery, and the AC adapter.

P) Restart the laptop to verify the BIOS password prompt no longer appears.
If it does repeat this procedure beginning with A above.

MAKE SURE you are wearing an ESD wrist strap, and have the alligator clip attached to a good ground!

Example of an ESD wrist strap,

[HDD password prompt comes up?
Press the spacebar and press the Enter key ]

There is no backdoor password, you'll have to take it to an authorized Toshiba repair center.

You can find one here.

They usually charge about 100 to remove the password, BUT if you keep insisting that you didn't set the password they'll probably remove it for free shhhh ;)

Toshiba satellite l505d

unplug laptop and remove battery. Take out both memory sticks and locate on the motherboard under sticks two points marked with ***. Replace one memory stick, plug ac adapter back up and while jumping the two points at the *** (use paperclip, flathead screwdriver or other metal object to connect the points) power up computer. This, if done properly, will reset bios, removing password.

Reset Toshiba Satllite m55-s141 Bios Password

There are 2 ways you can reset your bios2_bing.gif.

1. On the motherboard there is a small watch battery. Remove this battery along with the power cable from the power supply. Hold down the power button to fully discharge the system. Wait 2-3 minutes then reinstall the battery and plug in2_bing.gif your system. Your reset is now complete

2. Some motherboards have a 3 pin jumper by the battery. Lets say that the jumper is on pins 2 and 3. Remove the jumper while the machine is OFF and place onto pins 1 and 2. Power on your machine for a minute. (Note: Your system will not POST). Shutdown your machine and put the jumper back to pins 2 and 3. Your reset is now complete

This is a great troubleshooting2_bing.gif step for those of you having POST issues or no POSTing at all. Like other troubleshooting steps, this will not always work but usually will depending on the problem.

Please let me know if you have any further questions or concerns.
