    Bios password


    I always use a bios password. Can you access your bios (also called CMOS) I am sure there is a bios reset (usually a jumper you install over two metal prongs on the motherboard) or other method to reset your bios to factory.

    Master bios passwords


    If you are asking for some magic back-door password that will access virtually any Toshiba product....I hate to disappoint but it doesn't exist. If there is a password on the BIOS, either you or someone else placed it there, and without it, you will not access the BIOS. The only option to clear it is to use the BIOS reset jumper on the mainboard, which will return the BIOS to its factory settings.

    • The CMOS is, in basic terms, the part of the motherboard that stores the BIOS settings. To remove the BIOS password from your Toshiba laptop, your best option is to forcibly clear the CMOS.
      To clear the CMOS, you must remove the battery from your laptop and leave it out for at least 30 minutes to an hour. The way to remove the battery from your Toshiba will largely depend on the model. A common way to remove the battery--particularly with newer models--is to release the battery lock on the bottom of the laptop, while sliding the accompanying tab over to the side. This will pop the battery out from its tray so that you can then pull it out all of the way out.
      Before you remove the battery, turn off the laptop and remove the AC adapter. Otherwise, you could end up harming yourself or the laptop components. You must also ground yourself to prevent damaging the laptop with static electricity.
      After about a half an hour or more, return the battery back to its tray and lock it into place. Power on the laptop. The computericon1.png, ideally, should no longer ask you for a BIOS password.
      It's important to keep in mind that resetting the CMOS means that all of your BIOS settings will be reset to factory default. Also, sometimes you may need to leave out the battery for much longer than an hour to reset the password.
    • If resetting the CMOS doesn't work, then your next bet is to try using a backdoor password. A backdoor password is basically a password that manufacturers include with the BIOS so that technicians can access the computersicon1.png that people send in for repair. An example of a Toshiba backdoor password is, unsurprisingly, "Toshiba." When the BIOS prompts you to enter a password, entering "Toshiba" may allow you to access your PC and clear the old BIOS password. Another option is to hold the left "Shift" key down while booting.

    I do I cancel my finger swipe and have my laptop boot up upon open up?


    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:
    http://www.syschat.com/download120.html&act=down

    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!

    If you've forgotten your BIOS password, or if someone has changed the password on your Toshiba laptop without your permission, then there are a couple things that you can do to reset the password and access your computer.
