You'll need a special tool that only Toshiba has. I believe you can get yours cleared for FREE if you tell them that all of a sudden out of nowhere you have a bios password. Stick to that story because they've already admitted to the problem with many of their laptops. You'll have to find an authorized Toshiba repair center to take care of it for you. Otherwise I believe they charge around $100 to clear it.

Don't bother to try the cmos battery trick, it doesn't work on your model. The password is stored on an onboard chip.

Hi

Thank you for your query

There is 2 ways of clearing this problem, both unfortunatley require that the motherboard be accessed, and should only be done by a qualified engineer

1) Once you have opened up everything and the motherboard can be seen, something called a 2 pin reset will need to be done, this will involve moving a jumper from wetting to another for a few seconds and then moving them back

2) Removing the CMOS battery for approx 10 minutes and then putting it back, pelase note that gain the CMOS battery can be found on the motherboard

I personally advise that you do not do this work yourself and book the laptop into a reputable PC shop

Hi there, and welcome to FixYa.
Two ways to solve your BIOS problem:
One:
Removing the battery inside for the bios and find the jumper for clearing the CMOS.

Two:

As you don’t have a diskette on your model, you might be able to install it on a memory key, and boot from that, depending on your previous BIOS setup???

BIOS PASSWORD


There is a trick to resetting the BIOS password , but it requires you to open the laptop and get to the motherboard. Now I don't know your level of expertise in that field , but laptops can be very trick to pull apart and put back together...so if you are not comfortable doing it , please take it to a professional as I don't want to see you damage your laptop!

Back to resetting the password......you need to access the motherboard of the laptop....on the motherboard is a small circular battery (it is flat and silver)..... that needs to be disconnected from the motherboard to reset all the BIOS information...depending on the model of the laptop , you may be able to completely remove the battery from the clip it is in , or you may need to disconnect the wire running from the batter to motherboard. Below I have put some example pictures to make it clear.

Removing That Battery:

Disconnecting The Cable:

After disconnecting it/removing it place it back in/reconnect it , put the laptop back together and boot up....the password will be reset! Below is a picture just in case you have trouble finding the battery
