    Toshiba have an excellent website which may be able to answer your question.
    This question cannot be answered until we know the model and operating system version. Toshiba has modified Windows and added their own utilities.

    @john mseed: Windows version is not needed as this is purely a bios issue. Model number is all you need to know and he already provided that. @cool fixya: battery is soldered on and there are no jumpers.

You will have to contact Toshiba Support directly. The CMOS battery is soldered to the board, so you cannot remove it, and there are no jumpers to switch/short. Good luck.

Remove toshiba password from bios satellite 3000-x4


The Basic Input/Output System (BIOS) password is not set by default on Toshiba laptops. When set, the BIOS password must be entered every time you turn on your Toshiba or wake your system from Standby mode. If you forget the password, you cannot boot your system. Prevent having to enter a password or the results of forgetting the password by removing the BIOS password from your Toshiba laptop. Other types of passwords can be set, such as a Windows password, to prevent unauthorized access to your machine.

1. Turn off your Toshiba laptop.

2. Wait 30 seconds and turn your laptop back on.

3. Press "F2" repeatedly as soon your Toshiba laptop begins booting until the BIOS menu screen appears.

4. Enter your existing BIOS password and press "Enter."

5. Press "F2" again to enter the BIOS, if prompted.

6. Use your arrow keys to select the "Security" tab in the BIOS menu.

7. Use the arrow keys to select "Set User Password."

8. Press either "F5" or "F6," depending on your Toshiba laptop model, to open the Password section.

9. Enter the current password into the "Old Password" prompt and press "Enter."

10. Press "Enter" when the "New Password" prompt appears. Do not enter any text in this box.

11. Press "Enter" again to confirm the new password.

12. Press "F10" to save your changes and exit.

I hope you find it very helpful. Best regards.

My toshiba satellite c655 laptop has a black screen with a blue box asking for a current password


Sounds like the HDD password or Bios password got set.

You may need to talk to the person who set that password to be able to finish booting up the computer.

If that person is not available - you can call the Toshiba 1-800-457-7777. They may want to charge you for the over the phone support - but they should be able to walk you through how to get around the Bios or Hdd password if that is indeed your problem.

Need to reset my bios password on toshiba satellite a135-s2286


Hi,

you need to upen up your toshiba, and disconnect the internal battery, not the big one. Or, maybe a simpler method - call toshiba to check if there is a master password from them... :-)
