Laptop wont past bios..needs a password

I just bought a Toshiba laptop off a friend that did something he shouldn't have I've guess.

Here's the problem.. it starts to boot up then stops and asks for a password. This is before it even loads windows. It kinda looks like the bios screen. Any idea what I'm talking about?

    I have a Toshiba laptop I got from a friend and I use to be able to get on it but now when I turn it on a blue strip appears and say enter password after three trys the laptop turns off. How do I fix this?


    That is the bios password, in order to bypass that you would need to know the password, either ask your friend for the password, or you would need to remove the bios battery inside the laptop wait 10 seconds and place it back and turn on the laptop to reset the bios.

    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

    I bought this from a friend and they wont let me have the mastercode unless I am the primary owner. I need to reset my bios password on my asus G50vt laptop. Without the password my battery doesnt charge...


    There are two ways I can think of to reset the BIOS password. 1) Get the password from your friend or have him contact ASUS to get it changed. 2) Remove the BIOS battery for a few seconds to reset the BIOS.

    I have not had the opportunity to do any internal repairs on this particular laptop, but after 3 years as a Dell Field Rep I can tell you that it is not something for everybody to try.

    Trying to get past a bios password on my toshiba laptop given by a friend


    To reset the BIOS read the information from this link.

    In case of your Toshiba laptop the easiest method would be using software from Hiren's Boot CD as it's pretty hard to open it up and reach for the CMOS battery or the jumper.
