    This is an issue that you may need to take up with Toshiba. You can short the "pin" and drain the CMOS but you run the risk of killing your machine if you short the wrong thing or the wrong way. I do not feel comfortable telling you how to do this.

Just take out your BIOS battery, and wait for 5 min, then put it back!

Or you can try to flash BIOS, if you know how to do this!

Toshiba satelite bios password recovery


On laptops there isn't an easy way to recover passwords in the BIOS. Sometimes you can reset the password. Other times, you'll have to contact the manufacturer to get it reset.

Some laptops will allow you to reset the BIOS password by pulling the CMOS battery. The CMOS battery is typically located under one of the bottom panels for access to the memory or wireless cards. Some models have the CMOS battery connected by a small wire with a clip connector, others have the CMOS battery placed directly on the motherboard with a metal retainer clip.

Here is a link to a removable CMOS battery with wires: http://www.laptopparts101.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/12/removable-cmos-battery-560x420.jpg

Here is a link to a CMOS battery that is directly on the motherboard: http://www.laptopparts101.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/12/coin-cmos-battery-560x420.jpg

On a laptop, if you unplug the power cord, remove the laptop main battery and then remove the CMOS battery - and then wait at least 5 minutes, some models will blank out the BIOS password. Not every BIOS password can be erased by removing the CMOS battery - but if you are comfortable working on the laptop parts it is worth a try.

If removing the CMOS battery doesn't fix the BIOS password, the only option left is to contact the manufacturer for a reset. (If you took your laptop to a certified technician - they would just contact the manufacturer for the reset, and then bill the time to you!)

The number to contact Toshiba is 1-800-457-7777.

The BIOS and Supervisor passwords cannot be removed or changed unless you know the existing password(s). If you forget your BIOS or Supervisor password, you will have to have the password removed by a Toshiba Authorized Service Provider

Satelite a100 bios password


How to enter the BIOS or CMOS setup.
Reasoning: IBM compatible users may need to enter the BIOS or CMOS setup to setup or change how their computer's hardware is currently configured.
Solution: Because of the wide variety of computer manufacturers and BIOS manufacturers over the evolution of computers, there have been numerous different ways to enter the BIOS or CMOS Setup. Below is a listing of the majority of these methods as well as other recommendations for entering the BIOS setup.
Notice: If you are unable to get into the BIOS or CMOS setup because of a password please see document CH000235.
New computers Thankfully, computers that have been manufactured in the last few years will allow you to enter the CMOS by pressing one of the below five keys during the boot.
A user will know when to press this key when they see a message similar to the below example as the computer is booting. Some older computers may also display a flashing block to indicate when to press the F1 or F2 keys.
Press <F2> to enter BIOS setup
Tip: If your computer is a new computer and you are unsure of what key to press when the computer is booting, try pressing and holding any key on the keyboard. This will cause a stuck key error, which may allow you to enter the BIOS setup.

If the above steps didnt work can do this:

start
control panel
user account
Click on : Computer Administrator

Good Luck hope this gets ya back on line
