Removing the battery will not make a difference, it wil remove the system clock but he bios runs on non-volatile memory (memory that runs without power so you will not lose the password. Due to security reasons and without legitamate proof, i cannot tell you how to remove the password as the computer may have been stolen. let me know if you have proof, and i will TRY to help you.

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.

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.

I don't know my security code


if you are referring to a password protected hard drive

When you boot up to the log in screen type in administrator as user to log in if you cant log in

during the boot up process you will see on the screen for a short amount of time press a certain key to enter set up press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS scroll down to set user password or supervisor password you can change or remove your password from there

also

The most common way that we know on how to reset or clear the BIOS password is to physically remove the power from the computer by disconnecting the power plug and then removing the Cmos battery for 30 minutes from the motherboard. Another way is to reset the clear CMOS jumper on the motherboard itself. Both of the 2 methods mentioned works because most motherboards use a battery to sustain the BIOS/CMOS settings for the motherboards PROM chip. So by cutting off cmos the battery power, the BIOS/CMOS settings will be erased.

cmos battery Under the keyboard or bottom of laptop - If you are working on a laptop computer the location of the dipswitch (almost never a jumper) can be under the keyboard or on the bottom of the laptop in a compartment such as the memory compartment. Although on some motherboards the Cmos battery is soldered in Hope this helps you

Dell Latitude D620 BIOS password help!!! I bought a Dell D620 and I noticed that some BIOS features are password protected. The previous owner said he doesn't know anything about it, so I'm not sure what...


Dell usually sets a default password as password or admin Try those first. If no luck go into the bios setup by continually tapping the exc key while the computer boots. If your licky you may be able to set yourself as administrator and give yourself admin rights. With admin rights you can do anything.

Hello,

the computer has been locked from the bios settings.

What you need to do now is to access the Cmos battery on the laptop, remove the Cmos battery and turn on the laptop without the Cmos battery.

The Cmos battery is where the laptop memorizes the password and stores it. So when the Cmos battery is absent, the computer cannot remember any password

The Cmos battery is like a watch battery, but its bigger than a watch battery. You can find the Cmos battery when you loose the laptop from under. But you must first remove the laptop battery before you loose the laptop. You can open the link below to see what a Cmos battery looks like:

You can also check the below link for more information about the bios.

Take care.

How do I remove forgotten BIOS password?


1) You can reset BIOS to default settings by pressing <Alt><F>

2) I am not sure about the laptops, but in the Dell Desktops usually there is a reset jumper on the motherboard which is seated on 2pins out of 3, you just need to remove that jumper turn on the pc once and the turn on the pc again by reseating the jumper to its original place. You can try this with your laptop, I guess the jumper should be somewhere close to the CMOS battery.

3) Remove the battery and keep it away for atleast 30 mins. and replace it again.

NOTE: make sure while following step (3) and (4) the system should be completely turned off. Unplug the AC adapter, remove the battery and hold the power button for atleast 8 - 10 seconds.

let me know the output
