Hi stevele54321,
two possibilities are given: 1. You can generate a masterpassword by using a tool (download from here: http://www.users.globalnet.co.uk/~skynet/zips/latitude.exe, run that tool and type in the service tag of your laptop; the service tag will be shown when starting the laptop); after you've did the reset the masterpassword will be invalid (because another service tag will be generated automatically!). 2. the easier way: call DELL-support for further assistance on resetting the BIOS-password (before you will have to prove that this laptop is your property) Greetings from Germany,

PS: Please don't forget to rate this solution after you've tested it out! Thanks in advance and have a nice day!

    Hi stevele54321,


    don't try to remove any batteries from the motherboard of your laptop. With the D600 this approach wouldn't work since the password is saved on an EEPROM-chip which doesn't need a battery to save its content!
    Kind regards,

Hi,
in case of desktops what we do is take out the battery from the mother board and then start the desktop, what we can try here is take out the reserve battery from the laptop and start it, but i am not sure about it, however here is a helpfull link to take out the reserve battery
http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/latd600/sm/reserve.htm#1123951


you might try it at your own risk, but the best will be to contact dell technical support.

Further Queries are welcome

It sounds like someone has put a password on your BIOS on your laptop.

The BIOS is what boots up the laptop before Windows even begins to start.

This password will not let you do anything until it is removed.

The best way to fix this without knowing the password or who set it, is to discharge the battery that keeps the BIOS settings in check.

Basically, to do this you need to remove what's known as a CMOS battery from the laptop and leave it out for 5-15 minutes.

The CMOS battery for your laptop, and how to remove it, is located here:

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/vos1700/multilang/SM/coinbatt.htm#wp1179960

Remove the battery for 15 minutes, put it back in. Your BIOS settings at this point will set back to default and the password will be gone.

BIOS password


Hi,

It can be attempted in several ways.

  • Using a manufacturers backdoor password to access the BIOS
  • Use password cracking software
  • Reset the CMOS using the jumpers or solder beads.
  • Removing the CMOS battery for at least 10 minutes
  • Overloading the keyboard buffer
  • Using a professional service

    I forgot BIOS Password


    Get onlineand got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "ToshibaSupport" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operatingsystem when requested. Look for Manuals and search them for Bios Password or Bios Password Reset.
    I searched and Toshiba did not have any manuals or drivers for this model. Must be really old.
    Anyway try the link below for removing the bios password.
    http://www.ehow.com/how_6795884_reset-toshiba-tecra-bios-password.html
    You could try removing the cmos battery.

    You will have to remove the power cord, remove the batteryand remove the CMOS Battery that is located on the motherboard. On mostcomputers you will have to take the laptop apart to get to the cmosbattery. On some systems it looks like a silver nickel that you will needa small flat head screw driver to pop it out. On other systems it will beinside a vinyl covering and has a cable that plugs into the motherboard. Once you remove the CMOS Battery, let it sit for an hour or two then put itback in and put the laptop back together. Boot the machine and you'llprobably have to go into the Bios or System Setup because the system will haveforgotten the date, time and password.

Boot the machine and you'll probably have to go into the Bios or System Setup because the system will have forgotten the date, time and password.
    If the password is not reset then you will have to short the password jumper on the motherboard with a screwdriver or there may be a pin on the motherboard that you can remove to reset it. I would consult the owners manual before attempting either of these two options.
    I found the info below in the owners manual
    1.2 Resetting the Computer
    If the computer you are servicing has an unknown password,
    follow these steps to set a new password. These steps also
    clear CMOS
    1. Enter an incorrect password and press enter.
    2. Repeat step 1 two more times.
    After the third entry of the incorrect password, the computer
    responds with a System Disabled message and provides an
    override password.
    3. On another computer running Windows XP, download the
    unlock6.exe utility from the HP Channel Services Network
    (CSN) Web site at http://www.hp.com/partners/csn. Copy the
    unlock6.exe utility into the root directory (C\ drive).
    4. Access MS DOS by clicking Start/All Programs/
    Accessories/Command Prompt.
    5. Enter unlock6 xxxxx 0, where xxxxx is the password
    generated by the computer in step 2.
    The computer responds with another system generated
    password.
    6. Enter the password generated in step 5 on the disabled
    computer to enter the system BIOS. In the BIOS, navigate
    to the Security tab and Administrator Password. Enter the
    password generated in step 5 as the current password. Enter
    a new password to change it.
    7. The password has been reset and all CMOS settings have
    been cleared.

    My toshiba laptop is a black screen asking for a password.


    hi friend,

    If you have lost or forgotten the XP administrator password, first reboot Windows XP in safe mode by re-starting the computer and pressing F8 repeated as the computer starts up. Then (in safe mode) click Start and then click Run. In the open box type "control userpasswords2" without the quotes.

    You will now have access to all the user accounts, including the administrators account and will be able to reset the lost password.

    Just click the administrators user account, and then click Reset Password.

    You will need to add a new password in the New password and the Confirm new password boxes, and confirm by clicking OK.

    All done, you have recovered the lost administrators password! Source(s): http://www.hsinlin.com/tips/lost_passwor…

    If it’s a BIOS password then there are several ways to do it, on older Toshiba's there is a “key” that you put in the parallel port to unlock it, or you can remove the BIOS battery (with the main battery and the mains out) then short out the pins for a few seconds (sometimes you have to strip down the base of the laptop to get to it, maybe half to an hours work if you know what you’re doing). If it has been written to a fixed memory, you’re stuffed and need to contact Toshiba with proof that it’s yours.
    If it’s an XP / Vista user account password then you can either log in as Admin using safe mode (F8), or, as happens sometimes) you’ve removed/disabled the Admin account or forgotten ITS password as well then you need to clear the user account password file (ther are a number of programs that do this, I know which ones I prefer, others may have different choices)
    If you’re still stuck let me know.
    thank u for using fixya regards, sivaranjini

    Does this password request come up before the Windows XP logo with the scrolling dots appears? If so, you have a setup, or BIOS, password. Whoever put it there needs to remove it. This password cannot be broken. You MIGHT be able to erase it, but you have to unplug the computer, trmove the main battery, and find and remove the BIOS button battery, and leave it that way for an hour or so, then put everything back. If it worked, no more password.
